Should the Church Care About Disclosure?

It’s a shame, really, that I have to ask that. Jesus came the first time to testify to the Truth, and as His followers, we are called to do the same.

Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?
John 18:37‭-‬38 KJVA

Like Pilot, people continue to ask that very question today. Perhaps even more so today. It is increasingly difficult to navigate this information age. We are post-enlightenment, yet people are more confused than ever. Could it be because this so-called enlightenment comes from a source determined to keep us in the dark?

Of course it is.

People are hurting. They are engaged in a bloody battle for their very souls.

Yes, all men are sinners in need of a savior. I am in no way diminishing the Gospel!! But there are entities out there doing everything they can to keep man from coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! To be blunt, their job isn’t a difficult one. This is mainly because they are facing little opposition!

We, the Church, are not seeing the bigger picture here. We have the Truth, we hold the only weapons fit to combat these entities, yet so many of us choose to look the other way because we don’t understand what we are seeing.

Don’t get me wrong. There are some battles in which we do fight. Abortion, homosexuality, pedophilia, etc etc…..these are obvious battlegrounds in which many of us fight valiantly with the weapons and courage provided to us by Holy Spirit. Fight on soldiers of Christ!

Yet, for some reason, there are some battles we ignore. In America, at least, and from my own experience, topics such as demons, ghosts, cryptids, UFOs and aliens are frowned upon. I really don’t understand this. There is a stigma there.

I suppose the battles we do fight, such as abortion etc, are easier to understand. They have a shape; appear more tangible, because we can interact with the human beings involved in them. The supernatural/paranormal/unseen realm have too many unknowns. There is also the idea that if we acknowledge these beings, we are somehow giving them power or inviting them to come into our lives.

NEWSFLASH: They are already in your life! They are all around us, hidden in the shadows and the invisible. Abortion and the topics we like to fight? Yeah, they are behind them too. Satan does not put all his eggs in one or two baskets. They are out to steal, kill and destroy.

All I’m saying is, the Church should care about Disclosure. We are to disclose the Truth and expose the lies. In every form. As I’ve said in the past, we are all parts of one Body with different functions. We can’t do everything all by ourselves, we can’t engage in every battle simultaneously. Some are called to combat the lies surrounding abortion, others Islam, others pornography…..we all acknowledge these battles and support one another in prayer and encouragement. Just remember, there is a ministry for those caught up in the paranormal and occult lies as well and we should never tell our Brothers and Sisters to not discuss such things, or to ignore it.

Should the elbow tell the knee not to perform its function?

No matter our specific callings, we all must be aware of the battle raging around us and actively engage in leading the wounded to the Great Physician Who can and will heal, and Who empowers us to fight the good fight.

Spiritual Warfare

The things I am about to share with you over the next few posts are uncomfortable. Uncomfortable for you to consider and, quite frankly, uncomfortable for me to share.  That is because I will no doubt be labeled by some as a conspiracy nut, or as just plain nutty. Then again, I am a stay-at-home-home school-homesteading mom who wears a head covering (1 Cor. 11) and doesn’t “do” santa or the Easter bunny, doesn’t watch TV, and a gentile who observes Hanukkah. I suppose I am already considered odd, even by Christians, so I may as well lay it all out on the table. 🙂 I am half-joking, but this is serious business.  
Over the next few posts I am going to share with you some videos I have been praying over. I pray for discernment and wisdom. I recommend you do the same. I pray that God not allow me to be deceived nor to naively go down any unnecessary rabbit holes. The response has been MORE videos and information that corroborates and expands upon the previous videos. So. Here we are.

There is one important thing we need to understand about spiritual warfare: It isn’t necessarily how most of us in the West consider it to be. Remember the old cartoons that would have a little devil pop up on one shoulder and an angel on the other? That is about the extent of how many people view spiritual warfare. 

Real spiritual warfare isn’t a cartoon! 

There is an unseen war raging all around us and most people aren’t even aware of it. There are legions whose main goal is to keep mankind in the pit of darkness and to stave off the worship and knowledge of the One True God Jehovah and His Son Yeshua Ha Mashiach. Their job is an easy one where unbelievers are concerned,  but these legions aren’t interested in those they have already captured. They want those who claim to be Christians and those who are searching. Meanwhile, those who profess to know Christ are sitting idly by, unaware they are in the middle of a war or if they are aware it is a vague awareness as demonstrated in the old cartoons.

Mostly, American Christians are just too comfortable. We are comfortable physically,  yes, but we are also comfortable in our willful ignorance of the real battle. We are so comfortable that we aren’t engaged in the warfare at all. Instead we are playing footsie with the enemy and don’t even know it! We, too, are among those who call evil good and good evil. We have become so comfortable in our traditions and with the world that we cannot recognize the enemy, even when he has us by the throat!

And he does have us by the throat! 

If we aren’t thinking of spiritual warfare as a cartoon then we go the other extreme and think of it as obvious demonic activity. While evil is certainly becoming more “in your face”, it is only because we opened the door to it by ignoring our “little” sins and dipping our toes into the world’s pool. 

There are many reasons for this but I will give just a couple. Somewhere along the way, Jesus stopped being Lord. Well, He didn’t stop; we stopped serving Him as Lord.  The Gospel became watered down (a subtle but effective weapon of the enemy) and the Holy Bible became merely a blue print for moral living, rather than the Living (and literal) Word of God that is sharper than any two-edged sword. 

Allow me to close this introductory post with a few key verses we need to arm ourselves with as the Lord opens our eyes to the battle around us. It is my prayer that all believers wake up to the schemes and weapons of the enemy so we may be as wise as serpents, harmless as doves and fully devoted to the work set before us. Also take time to watch the linked video below the Scriptures. Maranatha!


For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,….II Corinthians 10:3‭-‬5 NKJV

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. I Peter 5:8‭-‬9 NKJV

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10‭-‬12 NKJV

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which  is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1‭-‬2 NKJV

An Open Letter to the Liberal/Progressive Christian.

This has been weighing on my heart for several days, but time is almost up, so I must share this. What I’m about to say is not easy for me, because I know there is a good chance I will be viewed as judgemental or accused of not having all the facts. Still, it MUST be said and I pray that you truly are as open minded as you claim liberals are, and that you heed this message. 

The ear that hears the rebukes of life Will abide among the wise. He who disdains instruction despises his own soul, But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding. Prov 15:31‭-‬32 NKJV

   To open I would like to ask you to take a look at a few verses of Scripture.

“And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:  “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.  Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow  that woman  Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.  And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.  Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.  I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden.  And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations— ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’ — as I also have received from My Father;  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’

Rev 2:18‭-‬29

I understand that many of you intend to vote for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday. I read your reasons; how you think she is best qualified to lead this nation. You support her inclusion of those you think are oppressed. She is a champion of women, you say. She will lead this nation, and thus the world, closer to unity and peace. I admire your compassion in regards to the less fortunate. 

I am also reminded of the first few verses of the above passage. 

I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience

Many of you have such big, loving hearts. You’d give the shirt off your back to anyone who needed it. You finance and volunteer at Soup Kitchens and homeless shelters. You befriend and mentor unfortunate children who are just shy of being orphans. You give of your time, skill and finances to many charitable organizations. You believe in Jesus’ sermon on the Mount and “be-attitudes”. You want to ease pain and oppression. You love people, all people, and want to meet them where their needs are.

I get that. I deeply respect that. What better way to share the Gospel and love of Christ? Jesus praises the church for this.

BUT, pay attention to the Lord’s rebuke.

You’ve allowed Jezebel to influence you. You have fallen under a great deception. Somehow you think America should be governed by a woman who thinks it is okay to murder an unborn child, even hours before it would be born. You somehow are at peace with all of the lies, corruption and controversy surrounding her. She has been accused of pedophilia. Her angry tantrums are reported by several inside sources. She will do or say whatever she needs to in order to have her way. Go back and read the books of Kings and tell me that isn’t who you want representing your nation….your very selves. It is obvious; Hillary is influenced by the same demonic spirit that controlled Jezebel. It is common knowledge that HRC’s mentor was Alinsky, who acknowledged and praised Lucifer and his rebellion against Jehovah.

Secondly, let me remind you of what Jesus said to the church in Pergamos.

But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.  Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.  Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it. ” 

Rev 2:14‭-17

In short, you have compromised with the world. You have mistaken tolerance for love. There are even some among you who say there are many paths to God.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14

If you do not believe that, you are not a follower of Jesus. You may do lots of wonderful things, but you do not belong to Jesus.

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. John 

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7

You cannot pick and choose which words of Jesus you want to follow. Plain and simple. 

But, if I may quote Hillary, WHAT DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT DOES IT MAKE? You may say, “We are talking about politics. We aren’t electing an elder of the church.” True. But who you vote for is a reflection of your values, YOUR character. A vote for Hillary is your way of saying you approve of her position on key moral issues, such as abortion, pedophilia, honesty and on Jehovah God Himself (if she shares Alinsky’s view, which there is no evidence that she does not).

No, there is no holy candidate. There is no one righteous on earth, outside the blood of Jesus. Yes, everyone has skeletons and everyone sins. This isn’t an endorsement for Trump. This isn’t really about Hillary. This is about YOU claiming the name of Christ and what that means.

We are told to abhor that which is evil. We are instructed to live holy lives. Followers of Jesus are the light of the world, shining truth into the darkness. We have no fellowship with darkness. 

We either follow Jesus and His complete word, or we don’t.  There is no room for compromise. Very soon God is going to separate the sheep from the goats. Follow the Good Shepherd. Hear His voice.

I also pray you not suppress the Holy Spirit for this is your “Joshua moment”:

“Now therefore, fear the Lord , serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord ! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord .”

Joshua 24:14‭-‬15 NKJV

Love Your Neighbor Enough to Speak Truth

The following article is a must read for today’s Christian. Step away from the ear ticklers and embrace the Truth. 

If this were 1999—the year that I was converted and walked away from the woman and lesbian community I loved—instead of 2016, Jen Hatmaker’s words about the holiness of LGBT relationships would have flooded into my world like a balm of Gilead. How amazing it would have been to have someone as radiant, knowledgeable, humble, kind, and funny as Jen saying out loud what my heart was shouting: Yes, I can have Jesus and my girlfriend. Yes, I can flourish both in my tenured academic discipline (queer theory and English literature and culture) and in my church. My emotional vertigo could find normal once again.
