Lent - The Easter Season 2012

Palm Sunday and Liturgy of the Passion: 4/1 and Holy Week: 4/2-4/7

This Sunday marks the triumphant arrival of the King! We also look forward to the coming Passion as we prepare to start Holy Week.

And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” (Mark 11:7-10)

Start this week with meditating on these Sunday readings, then each day in Holy Week!

Bible Reading plan for Holy Week, Year B: April 2-7, 2012

O Gracious God and most merciful Father, who has granted us the rich and precious jewel of Your holy word, assist us with Your Spirit, that it may be written in our hearts to our everlasting comfort, to reform us, to renew us according to Your own Image, to build us up, and to instruct us into the perfect building of Christlikeness, sanctifying and increasing in us all heavenly virtues. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

Fifth Sunday of Lent, and the Annunciation of The Lord: 3/25

This week we focus on the announcement of the Savior, and on Jesus' announcement of His sacrificial act.

I'll start my short devotional from this weeks reading with Isaiah. The prophet's name, Isaiah, means "Yahweh is salvation." His prophecy is from around 700 years BC (before Christ).

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary... and the angel said to her, “... behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.” (Luke 1:26-33)

Jesus answered, “... And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” (John 12:30-32)

Treasure the mercy and grace of God through Jesus Christ in this weeks reading:

Fourth Sunday of Lent: 3/18

This week we focus on God's mercy and goodness to save us even though we are sinners. Powerful reading for this week. I hope you take the time to read, reflect, pray, and give thanks!

And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.” (Numbers 21:7)

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. (John 3:14-15)

Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
(Psalm 107:21-22)

Third Sunday of Lent: 3/11

This week we open with the Ten Commandments.

We all know certain things are wrong: murder, theft, lying, etc...

But why? If ethics are just a product of popular cultural opinion then it's ok to kill a child in the womb, or becoming more popular today, some time after birth! (1)

But deep down inside we know it's wrong. Because ethics and morality come from outside, above, our humanity. They are transcendent. They come from God.

Often we will try and avoid the guilt by using Politically Correct newspeak. For instance, "Politicians speak of being in favor of 'a woman’s right to choose …' but they seldom complete the sentence. Somehow to say they are in favor of a woman’s right to choose to kill her preborn infant, is too honest, too clear—we might add, and too chilling." (2)

Newspeak may ease our collective conscience for a time, but we will be judged. As the Apostle Paul explains in his letter to the Romans, "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them... So they are without excuse... the work of the law is written" on our hearts. (Romans 1:18-23, Romans 2:14-15)

God has revealed His law to us, we are without excuse.

Bible Reading plan for Lent, Year B: Feb. 22, 2012 - Apr. 1, 2012

1. In fact, if ethics are what we make them, you could be reduced to believing, as Hitler did, that the best “good” would be to advance and evolve the human race, and your own personal genes, at any cost, including over 6 million murders! Watch this 33 minute documentary: 180movie.com

2. Newspeak, Hate Speech, Offensive Speech, what about Free Speech?

O Gracious God and most merciful Father, who has granted us the rich and precious jewel of Your holy word, assist us with Your Spirit, that it may be written in our hearts to our everlasting comfort, to reform us, to renew us according to Your own Image, to build us up, and to instruct us into the perfect building of Christlikeness, sanctifying and increasing in us all heavenly virtues. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
(adapted from the “1599 Geneva Bible” Tolle Lege Press, 2006-2007)

Second Sunday of Lent: 3/4

Once again, the story of family legacy in the unfolding of God's plan opens this weeks reading!

Last week we opened with the covenant account between God and Noah. After Noah's faith rescued his family, he must rebuild a people for God, he must "be fruitful and multiply" to leave a Godly legacy.

This week we open with the covenant account between God and Abraham. God has ordained that Abraham and his wife will be the parents of an entire nation for God.

Is it clear how important our families are to God? We must be building an ark of salvation for our households! "According to the Barna Research Group, three in five 'Christian' kids abandon the church after the age of 15. Eighty-four percent of 18- to 29-year-olds who call themselves 'Christians' admit that they have no idea how the Bible applies to their occupation." (Colson)

How can that be when The first commandment is for families to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28), and the greatest commandment, quoted by Jesus, is to love the Lord our God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength, and to keep God's commandments upon your heart and impress them upon your children! (Deuteronomy 6:5-7, Matthew 22:36-40)

It's time to awaken a new generation of Godly husbands and fathers to take up the leadership in their households! We are in a battle for souls. Particularly for our children's souls. We know we are victors through Christ, but the battle in America is at hand.

Psalm 22:27,30-31
All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before you. . .
30 Posterity shall serve him;
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;
31 they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,
that he has done it.

First Sunday of Lent: 2/26

So I recently blogged about how Noah "in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household," and the First Sunday of Lent this year starts with a reading of the Genesis covenant account between God and Noah. (Hebrews 11:7)

It deserves repeating, that we must be building an ark of salvation for our households! What a great way to start the First Sunday of Lent with this reading and reflection!

Lent

Lent is generally a forty day devotional season of fasting and prayer in preparation for Easter.

“Originating in the fourth century of the church, the season of Lent spans 40 weekdays beginning on Ash Wednesday and climaxing during Holy Week with Holy Thursday (Maundy Thursday), Good Friday, and concluding Saturday before Easter. . . Christians today use this period of time for introspection, self examination, and repentance.” (Bratcher, 1)

The term lent in Middle Ages English meant spring. (Wiki) It is derived from the Latin quadragesima, meaning the fortieth, as in the fortieth day before Easter. (Mershman)

A Call to Discipleship 2.0

"... three in five 'Christian' kids abandon the church after the age of 15... "

The first place to share God's blessings is in our homes, our families!
This is our first and primary mission and ministry field of battle! We must model the "fear of the Lord" to our family "around your table." We have to be the spiritual leaders, the Pastors and Prophets, of our families. (Psalm 128 - A Knighthood Vision)

Further more, there are only two required skills for leadership in the church, teaching (sound doctrine) and family leadership. "If a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?" (1 Timothy 3:5). (see 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1, and 1 Peter 5)

But is "family management" being taught in your church? Are men shown what it means to "manage his own household?" And are the leaders in the church, including lay leaders like small group leaders, held to this standard and passing it on, teaching it, to those in their care?

I have to confess, after many years as an involved member of a church, and after many years in leadership, I was never once asked if I knew what it meant to be the spiritual leader, the pastor and prophet, of my home; nor was I taught that I needed to be. I was never once asked if I led my family in prayer; nor was I taught that I needed to or how to. I was never once asked if I led devotionals and bible studies for my wife and children; nor was I taught that I needed to. I was never once asked if I did or even knew how to lead my family in worship; nor was I taught that I needed to. . .

I ask forgiveness from those that were in my care, and I forgive those whose care I was under.

"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry..." (Ephesians 4:11-14 ESV)

But now I make this plea! Get Equipped! Start Equipping!

If this is not a work of your church then talk to the leadership. If you can't get it in your local church, pray about finding one that can teach and equip you. Find ministries and resources. Get equipped!

My Lent Reflections for 2012 so far have focused on the importance of families in Scripture. Unfortunately, "According to the Barna Research Group, three in five 'Christian' kids abandon the church after the age of 15. Eighty-four percent of 18- to 29-year-olds who call themselves 'Christians' admit that they have no idea how the Bible applies to their occupation." (Colson)

How can that be when The first commandment is for families to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28), and the greatest commandment, quoted by Jesus, is to love the Lord our God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength, and to keep God's commandments upon your heart and impress them upon your children! (Deuteronomy 6:5-7, Matthew 22:36-40)

Maybe because too many churches and church leaders are not teaching and equipping, and too many husbands and fathers are not being taught or equipped. It's time to awaken a new generation of Godly husbands and fathers to take up the leadership in their households! We are in a battle for souls. Particularly for our children's souls. God help us and awaken us!

Is "That" day here?

"Back in the 1970s Francis Schaeffer told us that one day we would wake up and discover that the America we once knew was gone. That day is here. One does not have to be a prophet to see that dark days are coming to the United States. There are ominous signs that the freedoms we once assumed were ours are disappearing. Forces of secularism lead inevitably to a totalitarian state to which everyone is expected to submit."
Dr. Erwin Lutzer, When a Nation Forgets God emphasis added

That day is here as evidenced...


Specifically for the church, signs of what may come...

Furthermore, Mark Levin, in his new book ‘Ameritopia:’ ‘We Now Live in a Post-Constitutional Country’, explains "I believe to a great extent we now live in a post-constitutional country, where much of the Constitution is ignored or evaded...".

The only Presidential candidate that is sounding the alarm regarding this persistent and deliberate erosion of our liberties is Congressman Ron Paul. [official statement: The NDAA Repeals More Rights] [Why Ron Paul? by Pastor Voddie Baucham]

This is not a Republican or Democrat issue! Peoria Illinois' Republican Congressman Aaron Schock violated his oath to support and defend the Constitution and voted to pass the House version, HR 1540, of the NDAA Indefinate Detention bill. Each candidate must be vetted for their fidelity to the constitution!

There is evil intent on both sides of the political divide. We need constitutional candidates that will live or die by their oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

I could go on and on. I am documenting these links and legal arguments as part of my own research. When issuing my complaint to my Congressman, I was assured my fears were unfounded. However, brighter constitutional scholars clearly indicate that they are. The writing is on the wall, it's time to double down on discipleship and redoubt for our families and communities!

"'Our peculiar security is in possession of a written Constitution,' Jefferson advised us. 'Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.' Jefferson was afraid, in other words, that we would allow our government to interpret the Constitution so broadly that we may as well be governed by a blank piece of paper. The limitations the Constitution placed on the federal government had to be taken seriously if we expected to maintain a free society."
Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, The Revolution: A Manifesto

1. Time to double down on discipleship
2. Time to redoubt for our families and communities!
3. Time to vote for local, state and federal candidates that will uphold their oath to the Constitution!
4. Time to consider when is it time to flee?

Just in case...

If the mass rollout of the TSA’s occupying army of minimum wage morons is not abated, Americans will have to get used to being interrogated, frisked and treated like criminals by TSA goons on a regular basis, meaning the United States’ transformation into a Soviet-style police state festooned with internal checkpoints will be complete.

High Treason! Defense Secretary Leon Panetta asserts UN and NATO have authority over US Military

The founder of OathKeepers.org, Stewart Rhodes, explains legally how the NDAA Indefinite Detention Act declares war on Americans and violates the Constitution and Bill of Rights!



Even MTV gets it! Watch these two public service announcement spots: [Video Removed from YouTube]





First NDAA; Now Enemy Expatriation Act
On the heels of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), otherwise known as the “Indefinite Detention Act,” comes another draconian bill designed to give the federal government the power to turn American citizens into enemies of the state for virtually any reason it deems necessary.

Oath Keepers Launches National Effort to Recall and/or Remove Members of Congress Who Voted for NDAA Military Detention. Merry Christmas, U.S. Congress!
Oath Keepers has launched a national effort to recall (or remove by any other lawful means) all of the oath breaking members of Congress, in both the House and Senate, who voted for the National Defense Appropriations Act of 2012 (NDAA), which contains provisions that authorize indefinite military detention and trial by military commission of “any person” – including U.S. citizens and lawful residents – upon the mere say-so of the President or one of his subordinates in the Executive Branch, such as within the Department of Defense or CIA.

Obama’s Signing Statement on NDAA: I have the power to detain Americans… but I won’t
After the legislation cleared Congress, the ACLU commented that signing the bill 'will damage both his legacy and American’s reputation for upholding the rule of law,' while executive director of the Human Rights Watch blasted the President for being 'on the wrong side of history,' noting that 'Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.'

[Constitutional Attorney Tim Baldwin] A CRITIQUE OF MONTANA’S DAILY INTER LAKE ARTICLE ON SB 1867 [NDAA]
The reality is, “belligerent” actions do not include only acts of war as the article presupposes. It includes any “hostilities” towards the United States regardless of “terrorist connections”. Of course, these terms are unilaterally defined by only one branch of government with no checks from the judiciary. In short, the article presumes we should trust the President with this kind of discretionary law-of-war power...

The bill does not require detainment of US Citizens, but instead it gives discretionary power for US Citizens to be detained under laws of war. Thus, the plausibility of serious abuse is still real...

After all, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has expressly named the following kind of people as potential “homegrown terrorists”: supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr; those who oppose the “collection of federal income tax”; those who believe in the fundamental importance of the second amendment—meaning, State militias; those “who question the legitimacy of the federal government”; those who oppose illegal immigration. (See source here.). The SPLC, of course, is the Department of Homeland Security’s lap dog and feeds “expert” information about “terrorism” through their Fusion Centers... instead of being a “narrow purpose”, the bill broadly expands the use of the “law of war” power against US Citizens the military deems “belligerent”.

[Constitutional Attorney Tim Baldwin] A FOLLOW UP ARTICLE REGARDING MY INTERVIEW WITH LARS LARSON [concerning the NDAA]
The Constitution adequately provides for the protection of the accused’s rights as well as the public safety.

We cannot ignore the United States Constitution in the name of “safety”. It provides for our safety. However, if there is a flaw in the United States Constitution relative to these matters of “terror”, then the people should amend it. We tread on dangerous ground where power is assumed. This was one of the strongest warnings the founding fathers gave us...

The “war on terror” began in 2001 without a declaration of war or letter of Marque or Reprisal. Congressman Henry Hyde told the President to use his discretion in the war. Now, Congress is providing the President with a law of discretion against United States citizens with no oversight of the judicial branch.

High Treason! Defense Secretary Leon Panetta asserts UN and NATO have authority over US Military

"During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing yesterday, [United States Defense Secretary Leon] Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations and NATO, international bodies over which the American people have no democratic influence."

This is Serious High Treason!
The Defense Secretary responded “You know, our goal would be to seek international permission. And we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress.”

Despite Sessions’ repeated efforts to get Panetta to acknowledge that the United States Congress is supreme to the likes of NATO and the UN, Panetta exalted the power of international bodies over the US legislative branch.
("Coup D’etat: Pentagon & Obama Declare Congress Ceremonial" OathKeepers.org)

I have drafted letters to propose the OathKeepers.org NDAA (indefinite detention) Resolutions to Sheriffs and State Senators and Representatives.

NDAA Details at Chaplain Mick's Blog post: Is "That" day here?


"the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution,"

On the good news front, The legislature of the State of Virginia has moved to protect it's citizens from the Tyranny of the U.S. Federal Government. "By overwhelming votes (37-1 and 96-4), members of both houses of the Virginia General Assembly now have expressed themselves in their unmistakable understanding of the inviolate protections of our civil rights under the constitutions of the United States and Virginia,"
“In refusing to cooperate with NDAA, the Virginia General Assembly is performing its historic role as explained by Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 26 as ‘not only vigilant but suspicious and jealous guardians of the rights of the citizens, against encroachments from the federal government [who] will constantly have their attention awake to the conduct of the national rules and will be ready enough, if anything improper appears, to sound the alarm to the people and not only to be the VOICE but, if necessary, the ARM of their discontent,’” he said.
