I’ll tell you what just happened regarding China at the end. But first…
A man we know, boards a plane headed yesterday headed to Dallas. He’s a very successful businessman, a health coach, a gun enthusiast and a son of a prominent preacher. An all around great guy.
After being seated and nicely settled in for his much anticipated flight to attend a football game with a friend, the flight attendant approached with two police officers and confirmed his name, then ordered him to retrieve his belongings and follow them.
His mind races… Did they find contraband in his luggage? Perhaps a pistol in his hand bag from a previous hunting trip? Knowing that he had done nothing worthy of being pulled off the plane by armed police officers, he naturally asked the flight attendant… “Ma’am, can you please tell me what’s going on?”
Did they suspect him of being a drug kingpin? Was he mistaken for Brian Laundrie? What grave concern did they have to pull him off the plane with armed officers?
The flight attendant replied, “You violated our mask mandate policy.”
“But ma’am” he responded with incredulous disbelief, “There’s a mask on my face right now”
But apparently during his onboarding experience and putting things in the overhead compartment and buckling up his seatbelt, his mask slipped unnoticeably to him, just below his nose.
Well, that explains that! Arrest that man!
Apparently another passenger reported him, claiming they were made “uncomfortable” seeing him not wearing a face diaper in the fully prescribed and apparently mandated manner.
That’s all it took.
Then he was told that he may receive a $1,000 fine and be potentially banned for life from flying on this well known American airline whose name is currently being withheld. (When I know it, I will happily inform you.)
This same man has a son who his whole life wanted to join the army when he came of age. And sure enough, at age 18 he recently did that. His son loves our country and wanted to defend her from enemies foreign and domestic.
He’s a solid believer and when he joined the Army, their recruiting website clearly stated their vaccine policy which states that the so-called “vaccines” were required unless you had a religious exemption. He had one.
This same Army then proceeded to literally scream and curse at him, and threatened to put this all American young man in jail if he didn’t comply. He didn’t and they crushed his dream, kicking him out of the Army.
I made a list last night of over 20 cases where God’s people were ordered or expected to comply to some edict. Take for example, Shiphrah and Puah, the Hebrew midwives who refused to kill the Hebrew babies and lied to Egyptian officials when questioned. For their disobedient behavior and lying to ruling officials to save lies, God rewarded them with houses. (Exodus 1:21 KJV & Strongs)
I’d love to talk about Gideon, one of the most maligned Bible heroes in Christendom, simply because he used wisdom which has been mischaracterized as cowardice. (I’ll talk about that in a future blog.)
But Gideon violated all social norms when he pulled down the statue of Baal in the middle of the night and erected in its place, an altar to the Lord.
Needless to say, that stirred the pot. (Judges 6:25-32)
Time doesn’t permit to talk about Daniel or Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Not to mention Peter or Paul or John on the isle of Patmos.
Back to our story…
The friend on the plane wasn’t even being willfully non-compliant. It was a slight infraction, dare I say, unintentional. They took a snitching passenger’s word for it.
What if it was a lie? It wasn’t, but he was removed without recourse nonetheless.
I share this for two very important reasons…
(1) We are the proverbial frogs in the kettle. I feel the water heating up. The fire is being turned up and the water has gone from cool, to uncomfortably warm.
If we don’t jump out, we will croak inside the pot!
But herein lies the problem… To where shall we jump? What is our recourse?
There is no one single answer for everyone, which is why it’s incredibly important you understand my second and final point…
(2) If you don’t know how to get Face-To-Face with God and truly experience Him, hear His voice, find His comfort, gain His wisdom, feed off of His strength, revel in His joy and live as an overcomer in any circumstance, I beseech you as strongly as I can to join me and Judy on a journey we’re taking beginning tonight at 5:00 PM Eastern.
It’s the official launching of TranzformU where my life long friend Rick Osborne who spent the last 10 years sequestered away with the Lord in a “shack” in a small mountain town in British Columbia, is going to begin teaching what the Lord has shown him over these last 10 years.
You won’t find the fullness of what he will be teaching in any of the books he has written with over 110,000,000 copies in print but you can get a FREE copy of his Psalm 91 book here. (That’s a lot of books!)
For one year, Rick spent 3 hours a day with the Lord. That was followed by approximately eight years where the Lord invited him to spend 6 hours a day with Him, being taught. His tenth year was a full 12 hours a day.
And now he’s been released to share.
If you don’t know what he will be sharing, you can catch any of the five sessions he offered up about a week ago by going to the private Facebook group here.
Nearly a thousand folks watched those sessions and many of you enrolled in the one year school that starts tonight that will equip you to hear from God like you’ve never heard from Him and walk in the fullness of His power and love like you’ve always wanted to.
That course starts in about six hours (at 5 PM Eastern today) so if you haven’t already, I strongly suggest you do.
The winds of change are picking up on the geopolitical front and they’re about to start howling near you. As I pen these words, I came across this headline moments ago…
Like never before, we need to know how to enter the secret place of the Most High and I know of no one better than Rick to teach you how to be hidden in Christ. As I say often, we live in very serious times.
The pot of water we’re in that’s warming up, is not a hot tub! Wake up! Tune in! Join me as we join with many others in a hot pursuit of the Lord so we can be like the sons of Issachar who could discern the times and know what to do.
The training starts tonight but you need to enroll here. Rick even provided a scholarship program for those who need it. I hope to see you there tonight my friend.
Hope to see you tonight!
