Once Again...

                    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Once Upon a Time...

In God's World

Take a Note with you

A Note to take with you to learn the meaning of "Once upon a time" in God's own words. Are some things beginning to be relegated to the background -- things which were held so highly it seemed as though the life of every person depended on them? The same things which do not mean much any more, but which some are still holding tightly to.   

One of the ways to measure the progress of a people or society is to look at the things they are holding tightly to--ideas of yesteryear, with narrow definitions and ideologies of life and what life is about, or a more robust outlook that caters to all groups. Very soon, some things will not fit, and will have to fall aside. It will then become a story of "once upon a time." Are we there yet? It is staring us in the face.

Take a Note with You...

Set It Down!
Take a Note with You

Whatever you speak publicly, it better be accurate, you are not alone. Take a note with you! What note? A reminder that the things you say, speak, and make known publicly constitute a record. Sooner or later, they will be called to account, and indeed, the accompanying actions. But don't worry, God's Word is available to guide and to instruct all human action and behavior if you let that happen.

Have you become a god? You will have a problem--the type that only God can resolve. But here is God's Word--His truth, use it.
Set it down, say it, speak it, and make it known, only by God's Name.

Government By Magicians

The More You Look, the Less You See

But not so, God. He sees everything done even in the darkest of secret places. God went ahead of  Trump to Helsinki. He heard all the discussions. He listened in on the duo as they made their secret arrangements. God was aware of the true motive for the summit--if it was in the private interest of those conducting the meeting, or whether the interest of the United States was really in consideration.

God knows whether "It was America First" or whether "America First" is just a jingle. Before the first summit was over, a second one was announced. Was that really from the mouth of Trump, whose abysmal failure to stand up for his own nation in Helsinki shocked the world, or was that an arrangement by the grand master? God knows every detail and so will the whole world.

Clandestine Activities?
Can anyone explain what Rand Paul rushed to Moscow to do? And what message of salvation did he bring back to the American people? Where is the letter he delivered from Mr. Putin to Trump? Mike Pompeo, John Bolton and Rand Paul have explaining to do to the American people, sooner or later. Is Mr. Trump having help in subverting the interests of the United States? And upon whose idea is the United States policy on the North Korean nuclear problem based? Were they really going to send Pompeo to North Korea again, this time to beg Kim Jong-un to do what, or is North Korea becoming a rendezvous? And what is the United States policy regarding North Korea? It looks like anyone can call it "One Summit and All Problems Solved." But if you have another name for it, tell it. Meanwhile, God is watching! 

Myanmar --A Seed of Destruction?

The "God" of Buddhism?

If there's a spiritual leader in Myanmar who preaches the "God" of Buddhism and whose love does not extend to other people, that spiritual leader needs the real God--the Lord God of All Creation--Owner of heaven and earth and all they hold, including of course, all humans, being the most treasured creation of God.

Will the prophet in Myanmar please tell its people what next, because Myanmar has just sown a seed of destruction. And like a seed sown, it takes time to germinate and to grow. It also takes time for those who were not there when the seed was sown to begin to see the results, but what is sown is not lost. At the appropriate time, the fruit will become obvious to all.

Like A Seed Sown
The action of the Myanmar military and the attempted annihilation of the Rohingyas is a deadly cause and will have repercussions. Unknown at this point, the antennae of several other groups were raised around the world on seeing the images coming out of Myanmar in the later part of 2017. And the antennae of such groups are still up and will produce very deadly results. Will Myanmar then cease to exist? To say that members of a particular religion "are like snakes" which must be gotten rid of cannot help any situation. It will lead to terrible consequences.

Certainly, both the Myanmar Buddhists and the Myanmar Rohingya Muslims deserve a place under the heavens, and let no one deny the place of another.

O God, the Rohingyas!

Over a year ago, the world watched as the Rohingyas fled Myanmar to try to seek safety elsewhere. Largely seen by the Myanmar military leaders and the majority Buddhist populations as a people who are not fit to live, they were massacred even as they fled. Horrific images of such brutality have since then been shown to the whole world. Girls and women were raped, at least by their own accounts, babies, children, and adults were murdered in mass in what is now regarded as a genocide...

God is mourning the death of the Rohingya Muslims who were savagely murdered, and who appeared to have done no wrong except they dared to look different from the ruling class and those who think themselves to be superior human beings. This heinous crime before God and man is the beginning of the end of Myanmar. By the attempted extermination of a whole group of people, Myanmar has just written the most important chapter in the book of how to end Myanmar as a country.

Khashoggi's Blood Cries To God!

The blood of Khashoggi cries for justice and God hears him! All life belongs to God. The faith a person practices does not change that. God knew Khashoggi from birth to death and knows every detail of what happened in his final moments on earth.

If "It's a mean, nasty world out there," Mike Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State as well as the Trump White House, are failing to do their part in making the world less nasty and mean. Rather, "mean and nasty" are being used by Pompeo to defend one of the worst and evil crimes a human being can commit. Would he accept his own explanation if what happened to Khashoggi happened to a member of his family?

It will not be long before we start to see God move directly in matters affecting the hundreds of millions of people who do not operate from the corridors of power. It is obvious that many in positions of power are there to serve their own private needs, to the neglect of the voiceless and powerless. God is ready to act! Khashoggi will have justice!

If Khashoggi Were Your Son!

Would Any Explanation Have Been Good Enough?

If Jamal Khashoggi were your son, would any explanation for his murder and dismemberment be good enough for you? For the defenders of this heinous crime before God and man, the world is watching, and God is watching. For those who are defending this evil, explicitly or implicitly, would you want this to be the fate of your own child?

For the defenders of this abomination, what would it take for the  God element in you to rise up and say no! If you are given to equivocation on this matter because you want to deny the truth of what happened, how many billions of dollars would be acceptable to you to give up your son for the kind of treatment Jamal Khashoggi received in Turkey on October 2nd, 2018? God was present at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on October 2nd, 2018, when Jamal Khashoggi was killed and cut up like meat for food. Is that acceptable to any human being?

Are you going to church on Sunday, and is your family going with you? God laughs? "God laughs at the wicked, for He sees their day of judgment is coming!" --Psalm 37:13.

Shouts of Joy and Victory!

"Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous..."

'Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: "The LORD'S right hand has done mighty things!' " Psalm 118:15

  A TIME FOR EVERYTHING!               
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens." 
Ecclesiastes 3:1


"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men.The Lord is at hand.
Philippians 4:4-5.

The Heavenly Spaces Are Dark


The heavenly spaces are dark because God Is Mourning. But He is about to do something. A betrayal is the last thing on earth a Christian person will do, if ever, because it is capable of producing violence. Things are about to start happening and they will be ugly.

God is long-suffering but He is a God of judgment, and no one wants to see that in action.

If it appears that you have become like Teflon as people say, and you see yourself as the indestructible hero, you may want to reconsider, because that is a work of fiction. In the meantime, the Word of God exists to bring Salvation to all.

Joshua 7:1-26

God Is Mourning

God is mourning the betrayal of a kinsman by a kinsman and the betrayal of a country by its officials. There is a betrayal of a kinswoman by a kinswoman, just as there is a betrayal of a people by its "Leaders."
Things are about to start happening. The heavenly spaces are dark because God is in sorrow--what "leader" betrays his people? And what kinswoman betrays a kinswoman?

MONUMENT OF PRAISE was first published on July 16, 2018, in reaction to the Trump Helsinki sellout. Since that incident, God has not relented in speaking about it and what should follow. More than Donald Trump would ever know, God desires loyalty--loyalty to God and loyalty to a righteous course, not to corrupt men. No one of those involved in this betrayal will go free, they will all be brought to justice. And God's justice is different from men's, it can involve anything.

Courage For This Hour--M Waters

Patriotism And Courage: Maxine Waters

Of two groups who look at the standing of the United States now in the world, there are the patriots, and then there are those who are given to blind devotion and slavish followership. Only one of these two sides is right. God is about to decide that. It will come with vindication for those who have stood up for their nation, and one of those people is Maxine Waters--Congresswoman from California.

At the appropriate time, the courage and patriotism of this great American woman will be celebrated. When the horde has been dismantled and it is coming, and normalcy returns to the stage, what Maxine Waters represents and the things she stands for as a government agent and a genuine citizen, will begin to show as truly as they stand today. That day is a long way off, but will come. It is always easier to join the crowd in what they think than to stand up for truth, and this is the major difference between sycophants and those who stand up for truth. Those who stand for truth and seek justice will prevail. From now on, the world is theirs to move along.

God is set to dismantle the false establishments and the lying engines of the rich and powerful. God is not against wealth, but wealth gotten by corrupt and evil means and which is used for the oppression of the least in society, will be dismantled. Every nation on earth and indeed every community, no matter where it exists, needs people like Congresswoman Maxine Waters, for transparency and stability.

Courage For This Hour--John Brennan

Patriotism And Courage

The stand of the former CIA Director, John Brennan, against what he sees to be treasonous behavior from the president of the United States cannot be taken lightly. It might seem at this time like a light matter, on the contrary, it is a matter for great concern. So grave, the life of a whole nation and its unsuspecting citizens may depend on it. But even of more significance is the fact that he is willing to risk everything in order to defend his country.

It takes a patriot and one who is bold enough to sound a serious warning when it is needed. And this will be the difference when the storm has come and gone, between a patriot and those who are just going along with the wind. And this again will be the difference between a man who is trying to warn people about the activities of a president who appears to be working against the interest of his own country, to the advantage of a foreign power, and those who are afraid of reprisals.

It is coming fast! John Brennan and those like him who believe in the democratic processes and institutions of the United States, and who believe that as a sovereign nation, its position on anything should not be violated by a foreign nation, it is difficult to look on as the United States has appeared to be repeatedly violated by its highest official. Vindication is in for the truth tellers and justice seekers--it will surely come!

Courage For This Hour

 Truth Tellers And...

When all you see and hear are lies and those who speak on behalf of lies, you wonder, where did decent people go? Lying to cover up a wrongdoing or even a crime is an easy thing to do, you just lie. But the bold and courageous speak truth no matter who is involved, in particular, if the cover up is capable of hurting people and even a nation.

Those who believe and rightly so, that Truth And Justice are fundamental principles upon which any nation, albeit a so-called civilized nation should conduct its affairs, are on the right side of history. But those who believe that they can lie their way through every matter are in for a rude awakening. It will come like a flood and will spare no one, not the master of it all, not the subordinates. It is an abomination for lies to be flowing ceaselessly from the highest office in the land. And those who are spinning the lies have God to contend with--they will be answered.

Truth tellers and justice seekers will be vindicated, there are no two ways about it. It is the will of God, and so shall it be!


Corrupt Pastors Who Back Corrupt Politicians

God is calling! You are operating from an altar of lies and God sees you. It will not go unanswered. You are receiving applause right now for your twisted words of wisdom on behalf of corrupt politicians--God sees you, and it will not go unanswered.

You are operating from your altar of lies. God sees you and it will not go unanswered. You are making some quick money by lending your voice to crime and corruption.  It is not well. The money you have made from your corrupt politicians has created a deep hole in your pocket and in your finances, because you have received unworthily and have eaten unworthily.

The United States has become a den of thieves and liars, from the highest seat of its government to the supporters of its crime and evil. How long ago was it that many in Congress swore their lives to honor, truth, and the rule of law. Where did all that go? They are being held hostage, it seems. Where are the "men" who stood up against another president not too long ago for wearing a light-colored suit? They are all now slumbering on a roulette table it seems. They dare not open their eyes so that they do not see the truth. They all have pastors who "pray" for them. Tell your pastors that their prayers have become sin in the sight of God! The answers are coming!

Putin Banned From the United States!

God, by His Word has banned Vladimir Putin from the United States. And what is the second summit  or third proposed summit about? Is it about the well being or for the good of the American people? Then why can't America know what was discussed in Helsinki? Or is it because it was about a private business and how to get further help from Putin to defraud the American people in the next election?

The Saints Are Still Praying! And God is determined to provide them with Justice.

What man invites his wife's rapist to a tuxedo dinner? But it is happening in one of the most "civilized" nations in the world--the United States! If a man has done such harm to another man, what will be the reason to honor such a person? The answers will be made clear and they are coming.

While Donald Trump would like to honor such a man, God, the Lord God of All Creation sees why, and has banned Vladimir Putin from stepping foot in Washington DC and in the United States. Certainly, Mr. Trump can find other ways to please his benefactor without appearing so dishonored.


Rejected By God!

Putin's Visit To Washington DC

Vladimir Putin's invitation  by Trump for another summit in Washington DC has been rejected by God. You do not invite a man to a tuxedo dinner who has raped your wife, this is what the invitation amounts to. This should be decried by all people of goodwill. It is rejected by God and should be rejected by men.

The activities of Vladimir Putin and Russia in the 2016 United States presidential election is an act of aggression and the president of the United States will be openly aiding and abetting a foreign power whom he is aware attacked his country. There will be dire consequences if the president of the United States does not stop immediately from giving help and support to the person who has acted and is continuing to act as an enemy.

The Real Enemy Of The People
Who are the real enemies of the people? Is it those who seek truth and justice, or those who have betrayed their country? Who are the real enemies? Will it be those who do not want policy dictated from the Kremlin to rule American life or those who have handed the United States over to Russia and to Putin? Words, even untruth and lies can sway people for a while, but truth and justice belong in the realm of God and will prevail. TRUTH AND JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!

Saints Are Praying...

Saints are praying, the wicked are plotting, and God is up to confirm His Word. The events of our day will be settled by God's Word, and His Word is truth. Truth, and not hype, fact, and not bold-faced untruth will be the deciding factor.
John 8:32                                    
"Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee..."--Job 22:28--because you speak truth and depend on it. 
"I am the way and the truth and the life"--John 14:6. It  has long been identified, the way that leads away from all evil. Did you choose the way? Time is short, yet He is a merciful God, but does not condone evil. 
Righteousness and untruth cannot be found in the same space. You must choose which path to travel!

The Saddest Day In American History!

If you are an American citizen who cares about your country, you probably wept through the Trump-Putin Helsinki 2018 press conference. It is a total sell-out of the United States and it's citizens, to Russia and to Putin. Trump has now publicly declared on the world stage, standing beside the Russian president, that he is with Putin and Russia against the United States.
Certainly, it was a scary sight to see the president of the United States join with an adversary to attack the United States.


This will not last long! God is doing something--at least in the interest of the majority of American citizens who genuinely believe in their country. Victory is on the side of the Lord!

Time for Truth!

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." --John 8:32.

True or False?

The Russian lawyer and informant--Natalia Veselnitskaya-- was instigated by Vladimir Putin to say she's an informant in order to sow chaos in the United States?

Largely False: Vladimir Putin and his agents have been sowing chaos in the United States for quite sometime, perfected in his aid to the Trump campaign to win the election. This claim, although part of the larger plan to destabilize the United States almost perpetually, yet the latest information from the Russian lawyer is not necessarily meant to do that.

What Is True--It Is A Warning Signal
Just like the display of nukes "which can reach Florida" by Putin's demonstration, he is speaking to only one person, Trump. The words of the Russian lawyer are a warning signal that Mr. Trump is not delivering the goods. Donald Trump knows just like Putin and his Russian agents that something was going to give for helping Trump win. Was that surprising after the expulsion of the Russian agents that such insinuation has been put out there. If Mr. Trump thinks it is Putin's way of sowing chaos in the United States, has he now taken it up with Putin? What of the chaos he caused interfering in the 2016 election, has Trump done anything about it? Is the blackmail beginning to filter in?

It is not about Muller, it is not about Rod Rosenstein, it is about the truth. And truth will be told--nothing but the whole truth will be known publicly. The earlier Donald Trump get a hold of the situation by confessing the truth, the better for him. The matter will not go away until the whole truth is made public. The probe into the Trump-Russian collusion and coordination during the 2016 election is not a hoax as Trump Knows, it is real, and the facts will all be out.

Trump's Evangelical Advisory Board

What's The Advice?

Exactly what is Trump's evangelical advisory board set up to do? Is what you are offering a Christian service or just a bunch of friends celebrating one of their own being in the Oval Office? Is your service to God or to an emperor? Mr. Trump is still lying and perpetrating falsehoods. He is still cursing and hateful and attacking everybody--in particular those whose job it is to hold him accountable. He does not want to be part of any form of accountability. Unfortunately for him, he occupies an office whose first duty is to be accountable to the people. 

Advisory Board?

However, the man you claim to guide with "Christian" counsel is by all accounts like the last emperor of the last pagan empire--boastful and immoral roundabout. Is this your own account of Christianity?  Are you deceiving him or is he deceiving you? But no one of you can deceive God, although you are trying very hard. If you are unable to speak God's truth to him the way God would have it rendered, you ought to resign. Are you more afraid of a billionaire than you are of God? You may bask in the glory of the moment, but the end will be disastrous.

Brace Yourselves--The Fall Is Coming!

By helping perpetuate Trump's platform of lies, hatred, falsehoods, and deception, and by refusing to speak truth to him in God's own terms, neither you nor Donald Trump will be spared the coming disaster. The fall is coming--brace yourselves! It will be heavy and catastrophic!

Pray For Donald Trump

The Meltdown Is Coming!

People have been using the word meltdown, as it seems, almost casually as it relates to Donald Trump. If the endless tweets and what looks like tantrums, complaints, and attacks on individuals and the media are the things they refer to as a meltdown, then there is more in store. The real meltdown is coming.

Can Prayer Change Things?
Of course it can. Christians understand that speaking to God about a situation can change the outcome of that situation. While you do not necessarily need the permission of anybody to pray for them, at least in their absence, the perceived expectation of the person to be prayed for matters. While Mr. Trump is always ready to go on the attack on twitter with the biting words, the insults, and the name calling, there is a big problem and it is not going away. Twitter is just one way to respond. There are other ways. How about a reflection on what the real problem is and how to bring a resolution. There is no one person who can take on everybody and succeed unless that one man is God.

The Real Problems Are Coming
And when they shall surface, twitter will not be enough. It will be quite completely a collapse of the fort. So brace yourself  for the fall. But equip yourself with the truth because you will need plenty of it.
"Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night'" --Psalm 1:1-2

"For by strength alone shall no man prevail." --1 Samuel 2:9

Vladimir Putin In The Oval Office?

That Will Be The Scandal of all time!

Was it a joke or is it real that Donald Trump invited the president of Russia to a meeting in the White House? What will be the subject of the meeting--the welfare of the United States or something of private concern to the two men? Let's provide some context here.

Putin In The White House?
Inviting Putin to the White House is like inviting to a banquet the man who raped your wife, while ready to decorate him with a badge of honor proclaiming "Well done!" Will the United States watch while the man who meddled in their presidential election is honored in the Oval Office for doing so?

The United States is in disgrace right now and is being dishonored by alliances with somebody and with people who have put the country to shame. Will any private meeting between Trump and Putin serve the interest of the United States or of the two men? The meeting is arranged as a facade to show that there is no collusion with Russia. And God is interested because the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans are involved. And He is interested because there's a mass deception.Therefore, many things are about to be blown open, so that everyone can learn the truth.

Yes, the truth is about to be told in the United States as never before and nothing will remain the same.

"I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare..." --Ezekiel 13:14.

As for Putin, does he really want to come to the United States? He should be forbidden from entering the United States, and God is about to do that. Vladimir Putin is forbidden from entering the United States!

A Departure From The Senate?

Is the South Carolina Senator Sick?

One of the most lasting lessons the events of the past one year will teach all is that there is no substitute for truth. And God is ready to feed us all a meal of truth, no matter who stands or falls by it. And irrespective of whether the individuals or nations involved have nuclear armament or not. 
 God has determined that only Truth will move the world forward no matter the plans of men. TRUTH--JUST TRUTH--WILL MOVE THE WORLD FORWARD!

Why Is This Relevant to the Subject Matter?
Often, when people die, in particular people in positions of power, all of a sudden they become "very good" people. The grave side speeches are filled with accolades both deserved and undeserved. There seems to be an unwritten rule that when a person dies, we must speak well of them, at least in public utterances, as if not to offend the dead. Well, that culture is about to change. Anybody, whether in their casket or on their dying bed will be described just the way they are, or used to be--telling only the truth about the life they have lived--taking the good with the ugly.

So Here Is The Question
If the South Carolina Senator were to leave this world today, what would he like to be remembered for? For truths, half  truths, truth when it is convenient, or hardly any truth at all? Truth is, the time has come and the time is now when people who serve in high government offices, even in the private sector, will have their caskets cut out for them of the material they were best known for--integrity, honor, empathy, goodwill, lies, falsehood, fraud, deception, immorality etc. No need to tell other people how you want to be buried or how many eulogies you want at your graveside, God will be available to help bring a eulogy fitting the type of life you have lived. About that there's no question.

Vladimir Putin Needs A Bible

 The Russian Leader Needs A Bible                                                                

"Fear of  the Lord is 
 the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment." 
(NLT) Proverbs 9:10

"... for by strength shall no man prevail."  (KJV) 1 Sam 2:9

Every leader who aspires to lead on the world stage needs wisdom beyond "What I want."

Is Putin Targeting Mar-a-Lago?

It is strange that of all U.S. cities it is a place looking like Miami, Florida, that Vladimir Putin's nukes were set to attack. Do friends attack friends? Is there a veiled message for Donald Trump? What is he threatening Trump for? Does Mr. Trump know that he is being threatened by Putin's nuclear armaments? Mr. Trump may not know why, or does he?
 But God knows every reason why he may be facing reprisal from Russia and it's leaders.

If Donald Trump owes Russia and it's leaders, why not address him directly, why not tell him to pay up. This would be the more manly thing to do rather than a veiled threat that appears to include people who owe nothing to Russia. But when innocent people are being threatened, there is a way out. And this way out is being provided by God.

If Putin Has constituted himself into a Goliath, then let him know that God has appointed a David. And here's the word of God concerning such ill advised path that Putin may want to follow.

"Therefore thus says the Lord;
'He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow here,
Nor come before it with a shield, nor build a siege mount around it.
By the way that he came, by the same way he shall return;
And he shall not come into this city,'
Says the Lord. 
'For I will defend this city, to save it for My own sake.'" --Isaiah 37:33-35

Why is no one asking why the United States is hearing from Putin so often? Is he now the vice-president of the United States? But the real question is what makes him so bold? If the United States can find the answer to this, that is if the men are bold enough to ask this question instead of attempting to cover up the Russian probe, then they would have found a solution to the problem.

Threatening The World With Nukes? --Irresponsible!

Exactly one week ago today, the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, displayed his "Invisible" nuclear weapons to the world in what was hardly a veiled threat. The truth is Vladimir Putin knows very well the United States is not going to attack Russia. Even if his move is only just to warn the United States, it is still irresponsible to parade his weapons of mass destruction before a world that is trying to forge peace.

One would have thought that in a "civilized" world of the 21st century, the type the west would like to boast about, that those who lead their nations would understand the principles of respect and civility and actually apply such in dealing with others, be it their own people or other nations.

The Days of the Pagan Empires Are Over
During the days of the pagan empires, one man who thought he had a big chest could get up and challenge anybody to a fight unprovoked, because it was all about raw strength. Today, it is about "My nukes can reach the United States" or "I have the biggest and fattest nuclear button". Is the world being ruled by insecure men, and how long will they remain?

The world we live in is not the property of any party. Whether you believe it or not, it belongs to God  and His WILL will prevail. To threaten your neighbors with destruction is pagan and the leaders on the world stage today who are daily threatening the peace so that they can be seen as tough need a copy of the Bible. I will gladly supply each of them a copy.

A Leader In Hiding?

Does anyone know where the leader is hiding who was supposed to be at the forefront of a cause? Can a leader successfully hide from view who has been mandated to lead a cause?
 Gideon was in hiding (Judges 6) when the angel of the Lord declared to him;
"The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." The Lord appeared to Gideon and called him a man of great valor. This was a move to prepare Gideon for the battle ahead. Gideon did not see in himself what was being ascribed to him, which is a natural way to react to such situations.

But God's business must be done, and there comes a time when God will not take no for an answer, even while gently coaxing the messenger to accept the mission. Every such messenger needs the message and the location where it should be happening. Gideon had both--the children of Israel had to be freed from oppression, because God was concerned, even as He is today with things going on in our world. Those whom God has delegated to bring the message of freedom to others must rise up and conduct themselves according to the vision and wisdom. The rest is God's to take care of. God promises one thing--to Gideon, to Joshua (Joshua 1:5-6), and to whoever else He calls for such a move, "I will be with you." -- to prosper the cause!

So, come out leader! God is about to do some great things.
Come out and take your place, for the Lord God has made it known that He will  make His Cause great and prosperous. Come Out! And Lead!
