Discerning Our Motivations

“… and he sent messengers before his face, and having gone on, they went into a village of Samaritans, to make ready for him, and they did not receive him, because his face was going on to Jerusalem.

And his disciples James and John having seen, said, `Sir, wilt thou that we may command fire to come down from the heaven, and to consume them, as also Elijah did?’

And having turned, he rebuked them, and said, ‘Ye have not known of what spirit ye are‘…”

Luke 9:52-55

Sharpening Our Discerning Sunday

The beauty of our design is that we are created to maximize our effectiveness in the context of meaningful relationships. This is especially important to remember in the community of faith. And in the community of Patriots. In the hurricane of this communications battle we find ourselves in today, we need all of us working together in order to accurately discern what is important and map out strategies for getting to where we are going. In the passage above, quoted from Luke 9, the Samaritans thought Jesus was their enemy because he seemed to be heading to Jerusalem. The disciples thought the Samaritans were their enemy because they rejected them. Neither were discerning what was afoot. Being good students of the Torah, the disciples were ready to reenact an old testament prophet’s great moment of fame. Calling FIRE down on these filthy Samaritans! Jesus has to rebuke his men. While I might not be able from the text to give a specific name to the spirit they were being deceived by, I’m pretty confident that we are dealing with the same spirit in spades right now. And we had better do both a head check and a heart check so that the Lord does not have rebuke us. Discernment. We don’t have much of it. Those who are isolated from community are in the greatest danger of having our malicious enemy twist their perceptions of reality. We MUST work together to grow the best possible perceptions of reality. 

Scripture: Church, One Body, Many Parts


Why do you think free speech is under attack? Could it be that the open marketplace of ideas is an existential threat to those throwing up smoke and mirrors around their work of dismantling all that we hold near and dear. I think it is. A newer term for what Wolf’s Q Treehouse operates in every day is “crowd-sourcing.” That is to say, a group of people with a common interest all contribute their viewpoint, observations, even work-products to build something bigger than themselves. Each person has the potential to make a unique contribution to our emerging understanding. This undoubtably poses a threat to those who want us in a fog of war. We can expect to see various “spirits” rise up and attempt to throw sand in the machinery. A spirit of offense here, a spirit of division there. Maybe even some deceiving spirits distracting our focus in the middle of a discussion that is about to unlock wisdom we truly need for this next season. This calls for more discernment. May I suggest for those of us that walk with Jesus to ask him for a discerning heart and a willing mind to see with his eyes and think his thoughts about the world we find ourselves in? Think *3 D-EkqyfUIAIoYvH
“For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. holy-spirit-j-peg

And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception, to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:8-11

The Communist Dems are howling today more than ever before.
Petty and small, their tortured logic appears desperate.
We’ve been hovering over the target for a long time. It’s time for some retribution. My babes in the red states need some red meat.

He Makes The Newscomment image
He’s been in the news forever
Almost all his whole life long
He puts politics and honesty together
He is PTrump, and he makes the news
He makes the news that makes the free world sing
He makes the news so peace and freedom ring
He makes the news so Libs and Fake News cry
He makes the news, he makes the news
His hope lies deep within us
With peace and freedom as our goals
Then when we look out through our eyes
We see history, and we watch it unfold
He makes the news that shows truth over lies
He makes the news so good people arise
He makes the news changing enemies to allies
He makes the news, He makes the news
Oh, his good news makes us dance
And gives us spirit to take a chance
So he crossed the DMZ so he could prove
Kim and he can get along
Together, both free and strong
It’s the truth, it can be
It can grow, can’t you see
To a worldwide symphony
In a gesture so profound
He strode through dangerous ground
And as Deplorables, we watch and cheer
What a time to be alive
To watch America grow and thrive
We are one, we are free
It’s PTrump, he’s the key
To all that we can be
He makes the news that makes the free world sing
He makes the news so peace and freedom ring
He makes the news so Libs and Fake News cry
He makes the news, he makes the news
He is PTrump, and he makes the news!

Well, this is interesting … BUT … listening to it is like pulling teeth … GET TO THE POINT!
Aha … feel better now …

People want it all to get fixed post haste, red – takes time for all of the pieces of this giant puzzle to be gathered and put into place – this is a HUGE undertaking – unfortunately, we think we have been patient long enough – get ‘er done – we say – easier said than done – if we go too quickly – some of those treasonous miscreants will get off on a technicality – we don not want that – we want them to pay – with their lives if possible – yes?

Now that is a Patriot. What a generous man.

Good stuff!
I have a Home Depot assortment of Ryobi 18V tools and an EGO 56V mower and they are great! My yard never looked so good!

President Trump will not forget this! He will look for ways to bless the Marcus family!

Beautiful.

From my Inbox:
“This notice can now be found in all French churches:
En entrant dans cette église, il est possible que vous entendiez l’appel de Dieu.
Par contre, il n’est pas susceptible de vous contacter par téléphone.
Merci d’avoir éteint votre téléphone.
Si vous souhaitez parler à Dieu, entrez, choisissez un endroit tranquille et
parle lui.
Si vous souhaitez le voir, envoyez-lui un SMS en conduisant.
Translation:
It is possible that on entering this church, you may hear the Call of God.
On the other hand, it is not likely that he will contact you by ‘phone.
Thank you for turning off your phone.
If you would like to talk to God, come in, choose a quiet place, and
talk to him.
If you would like to see him, send him a text while driving.”

Story from the local paper if your interested in a good read about a real bad ass Marine.

Linda

God bless your grandfather, Rodney. Where are all the men like that these days?

Rodney Short

We have to fight to save the future men,8 years of Nobama really finished off what was left of education.
Nobama went full ahead with the indoctrination of our youth and he had alot of help on the way.
We are this nations only help and we have to take our country back, SHIT just got real.
I was working for my gramps when I was 9, that is what seperated me from most, they used to call me “Mule”
Todays men lack a good ass whoopin from a father figure, mothers have pampers the youth.

Its good and i hope people dont have a passive nimby attitude. Every single vote counts.
And dont put your ballirs in the damm mailbox. I “vote by mail” with my paper ballot and take it to the county registrars office, save the receipt and check to make sure its recorded.

Ted Talk … interesting, but you have to get past the first part to get to the meat of what he’s saying…
Thought it might be of interest to some who are unfamiliar with the dark net…

TheseTruths

That was fascinating; thank you. I wonder if the dark net will become a way to get around those censoring conservative thought.

This really pisses me off. Oregon voters decided several years ago by initiative petition to prevent illegal aliens from obtaining drivers licenses, but now the state legislature has done an end run around the voters once again to pass a bill allowing illegals to get a license. This is B.S. and I am pissed.

They know more than us measly peasants.
Gavin just stuck in in the back as well, it’s the nature of the beast.

Antifa is a terrorist organization and The F.B.I. should prosecute them as such, IMO.

Deplorable Patriot

Anyone else here live in a vintage neighborhood – and have for decades – with millennial neighbors who get ticked off over the street being under construction? Yeah, so they can’t use their driveway. Well, they’re taking up our parking spots on the street, and it’s not construction guys’ fault that it rained and there was standing water on the roadbed that had to be pumped out and needs to dry before the asphalt is laid.
I mean, honestly, if they were as attentive to going to church as they seem to be about other stuff…. (My, that was judgmental.)
Sorry, but it sounded to me that these people were accusing the construction people of being negligent about things that are beyond their control. Really, there are people who have lived here for a lot longer and we’re not complaining. We’ve been waiting years for this.

“Major Israeli Airstrike On Syria Just As Russian-Supplied S-300 Went Operational
Hours after Israeli reports said Russian S-300 anti-air defense systems in Syria came online and were “operational,” the Israeli military allegedly launched a major aerial attack on Syria in the middle of the night Sunday.”

So, why isn’t the U.S. taking quick, decisive action against Antifa? I hope it’s because we are tracking comms, funding sources, organizational relationships, membership, etc., so that at an appropriate time in the future (it’s never soon enough for me), we’ll be able to catch all the rats on the ship instead of acting earlier and a bunch of those rats get to swim to shore before the ship goes down.

What a great weekend, hope everyone had the same! Just wondering from anyone willing to critique a total amateur. … so drillerwife got some materials and had us (me, driller-son and his gf) watch the art sherpa on YouTube, she’s pretty funny. We kinda followed a tutorial but I think I surprised them, me too actually 😳😲 Idk, it was fun thoughcomment image

drillerelite

Hah! A long lost (so I thought) talent. I was looking at tools for creating some works out of petrified wood, sandstone and gemstones yesterday and suddenly she came up with the idea of doing this. Long story but her father gave her a dream the other night about tapping into our creative sides. Strange how all my years in art class, 30 some years ago, come rushing back.

phoenixRising

that’s beautiful Driller…………… first time? Don’t stop…………..

drillerelite

Thanks. First time in a long time and I probably just wanted affirmations but I really feel the need to expand my horizons at this time. Or even have a healthy escape if nothing else 😉

drillerelite

So true. I think I just reconnected to something I’d forgotten, fun.

phoenixRising

great T3 ………….. we really dodged the bullet, didn’t we!

Plain Jane

Love your commentary on The Body of Christ T3. That is one of the reasons we have to pray for everyone, even Soros, Antifa, and even O and the Klintons, everyone. He asks us to do so.

Plain Jane

Someone OT last year prayed for God to convert them or stop them. I usually ask for His will be done.
