“What Do You Think?”
June 18, 2022
Well, here we are in California. Diesel is $6.99 a gallon, but our top price, so far, is $7.69 a gallon. Shucking out close to $300 for a full tank of fuel is a bit shocking; but the people we have spent time with more than make up for this temporary shock by their friendship, hospitality and love!
We shared our new, interactive story titled “The Journey” with the Mid-Valley Fellowship in Silverton, Oregon..Many people testified that the story impacted them in deep and profound ways, encouraging them in their own walk of repentance and forgiveness. The Tuesday morning “Wise Guys” show on Hebrew Nation Online.com asked us to join them for an interview. The prevailing theme was, “How do you consistently live an over-coming life?” The quick answer from the apostle Paul is to “die to self daily,” not necessarily an easy or willing thing to do. How desperate are you to over-come what’s hindering your relationship with YAHWEH Yeshua?
The 3 “E”s continue to be our ministry focus — to Encourage, to Edify and to Exhort. Sitting around the table sharing fellowship with 10 different families, besides our son, so far, has been such a blessing for us and them. One topic that is on all their minds is the state of the world and our country, “what do you think?” is the question of the hour. I am adding this short post from Pastor Steve Holt whom we met last November in Colorado Springs, CO; as it pretty succinctly sums up our answer to this question of “what do you think.”

There is no other passage in all the Bible that so clearly articulates God’s strategy for the last days. In Psalm 2, we see the strategic plan of Satan over the nations, and we read of God’s plan for world dominion. Two sides of the same coin: Satan’s plan, God’s plan.
“The rulers take counsel together against the Lord” (verses 1-3). In the first three verses, David writes of a global plan by Satan, led by united world leaders, to destroy God’s influence on Earth. These are men not unlike Klaus Schwab, the World Economic Forum, elite billionaires, and globalists actively working for a one-world order. They are organized, well-funded, and networked to every major government. They hate Christianity, they hate sovereign nation status, and they hate America.
“He who sits in the heavens shall laugh” (verse 4). God is so unaffected by Satan’s schemes, He doesn’t even bother to stand up. He laughs at those who think they can thwart His plans. God is sovereign over all. He is working out His plan on Earth, and He doesn’t need any supposed “elites” to see it carried out. As a matter of prophetic fact, these people are just walking into God’s trap.
“Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion” (verses 5-9). Even as evil increases around the globe, God’s Kingdom is enlarging, growing, and even more powerful than any other time in history. God is moving His key players into place. God is raising up leaders and churches who will stand up with Him and be catalytic for a Kingdom of God revolution on Earth.
“Kiss the Son” (verses 10-12). It is time to pick sides. Who will we fight with and for? Who or what will we embrace? The Son of God? The sons of Satan? The days that are coming will be the most perilous or the most exciting of our lives. Make your choice, for days are coming when the choosing won’t be as easy.
A time of choosing is upon us.
