Are you AWAKE yet?

Long but worth the read🥰
A member of the church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going.
After a few weeks, the pastor decided to visit him.
It was a chilly evening.
The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire.
Guessing the reason for his pastor’s visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.
The pastor made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning logs.
After some minutes, the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone then he sat back in his chair, still silent.
The host watched all this in quiet contemplation.
As the one lone ember’s flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more.
Soon it was cold and dead.
Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting.
The pastor glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave.
He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire.
Immediately it began to glow, once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.
As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, ‘Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the firey sermon.
I will be back in church next Sunday.’
We live in a world today, which tries to say too much with too little. Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the best sermons are the ones left unspoken.
The Lord is my Shepherd —– that’s a Relationship!
I shall not want —– that’s Supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures —-that’s Rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters —–that’s Refreshment!
He restoreth my soul —– that’s Healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness –that’s Guidance!
For His name sake —– that’s Purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death–that’sTesting!
I will fear no evil —– that’s Protection!
For Thou art with me —– that’s Faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me —–that’s Discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies——that’s Hope!
Thou annointest my head with oil —–that’s Consecration!
My cup runneth over —– that’s Abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life—-that’s Blessing!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord —–that’s Security!
Forever —– that’s Eternity!
Face it, God loves you!
What is most valuable is not what we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives! ❤🙏🏼

The Corrupt Ones
We can no longer ignore the corruption in DC; if we don’t push back and do our part to clean up the mess it will soon be too late.
An FBI official says that they don’t want to influence an election as they did in 2016 with HRC conducting government business on an illegal unsecured server by refusing to do anything. Yet, they pursued the Russian Collusion Delusion and supported other attacks on Trump leading to impeachment attempts. They have pretty much ignored the Biden laptop scheme and reveal nothing of what they’re doing. They attempt to label parents concerned about what their children are being taught as terrorists.
Over 1 1⁄2 years after Trump left office and mere months before the midterm elections, they raid Trumps home with questionable tactics.
But they don’t want their tactics to influence elections. Yeah right; nope, I ain’t buying that bridge.
Mike Rowe and The Poorly Educated
Whenever Mike Rowe speaks out about the lack of work ethics in the current generation, he gets accused of pushing “right-wing propaganda,” that tells us a lot about the left wing!
Unfortunately, he’s so right! We have gotten way too comfortable with being ‘lead’ to where government wants us to be, and not striving ourselves to where we want to go.
Unfortunately, that’s true! My daughter in HR sees this! It’s a shame! Lack of a work ethic and moral decay of society! Too many ‘handouts’ from government hasn’t helped! Handouts were supposed to be a ‘hand up’ not a generational ‘I take’ and ‘not give back’ policy!
The government handouts were sold to the American people as helping but the crafters of the legislation may have been less than honest even then when considering the manner in which they vilified and misrepresented the motives of the opposition.
I disagree, Sure there are a lot of lazy “entitled” young people, but the majority of the young people 18 to 30 that I know bust their butts every day to try to make ends meet in this sad time [of Bidenflation] when rent and living expenses, especially health insurance ,are so high that they cannot afford to live independently very comfortably. When I graduated college In the 70s I could afford a small apartment, feed myself ,and I had at least nominal insurance. I could afford my car and my car insurance. I was working at a health club at the time… In this day and age rent alone takes a huge portion of their paycheck. Car and car insurance outrageous. Health insurance, heck they can’t even afford it.
Jeanne C, THANK YOU! The idea of being able to completely provide for yourself working at a health club is crazy to my generation. I had to live with 3 to 4 roommates at a time to get by after college. All these older folks say that we are lazy and entitled, but the same efforts that allowed you to live well in your time just don’t pay off the same way anymore. It’s sad.
Cindy, That’s because in our time we didn’t have cell phones or the internet or eat fast food. So yes the money we made then went a long way. Today no matter how much we make it’s never enough.
JoAnn, I’m 64 and bring my lunch to work every day. All the under 30s in the office order Grub Hub or Door Dash every day. The other day one had a small pizza and Pepsi delivered for$25. The same pizza is $14 if you pick up about a mile away. Packing lunch is a couple of dollars. But that’s just too hard. So much money spent foolishly and wasted.
Diversity Inclusion Equity, the disease
JORDAN PETERSON RESIGNS HIS TENURED PROFESSORSHIP, BLASTS ‘A STUNNINGLY CORRUPT ENTERPRISE’ ON HIS WAY OUT
JOSEPH GUNDERSONJANUARY 20, 2022
Jordan Peterson has become a voice of reason in an age of otherwise insanity. His books have been bestsellers. His podcasts, interviews, and live debates have kept listeners glued to seats, absorbing every word. Peterson himself often tearfully recounts instances in which people have approached him just to say how he’s changed their lives. But now, a group of people he has dedicated years of his life to will no longer have the kind of access to his calm, collected, measured wisdom, for he’s decided to resign from his position at the University of Toronto.null
In a column for the National Post, Peterson outlines exactly why he has chosen to leave the academy: the diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) disease that has infected the entire institution. He writes that because of the DIE insanity that grips the academy, his “heterosexual white male graduate students […] face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions.” And, if his students manage to conquer that hill, because of his philosophical positions, they might still be rejected, as his presence in their education and development as scholars has somehow tainted them. “These facts rendered my job morally untenable.”null
The DIE, he explains has destroyed several areas of the academy. The DIE push to meet racial, ethnic, and gender quotas ensures less than qualified candidates are accepted. “This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job,” and the “death of objective testing” all but makes this much certain.
For faculty, he describes them as “craven,” lying and paying homage to the DIE overlords in statements for the purpose of receiving research funding, “further corrupting what is already a stunningly corrupt enterprise.” What’s more, Peterson writes, these spineless academics teach their students to do the same.
And if the behavior of the individual professors was not bad enough, Peterson explains that “the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have ‘social justice’ orientation.”
The universities will be required to prime students to become leftist activists or be denied accreditation.
“Similar moves are afoot in other professional disciplines, such as medicine and law. And if you don’t think that psychologists, lawyers and other professionals are anything but terrified of their now woke governing professional colleges, much to everyone’s extreme detriment, you simply don’t understand how far this has all gone.”
All of this is to say that the academy is an institution rotten to its core, gripped by the venomous tentacles of the DIE monster.
“We are now at the point where race, ethnicity, “gender,” or sexual preference is first, accepted as the fundamental characteristic defining each person (just as the radical leftists were hoping) and second, is now treated as the most important qualification for study, research and employment. Need I point out that this is insane.”
Before closing his column, Peterson lashes out in righteous anger at those making this takeover possible.
“[T]his is on you Professor. Cowever cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. […] CEOs: signalling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. […] Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists…”
I think it’s safe to say that the University of Toronto has lost an invaluable member of the faculty, and the professoriate at large has lost one of the last warriors willing to fight for what they are too cowardly to fight for themselves.
Perhaps if more professors had Peterson’s stones, the universities wouldn’t have anyone left to push their nonsense, and, just maybe, they might start changing, but this is far too much to ask, I suppose.
For now, the universities continue to prove to be garbage heaps of terrible ideas, substandard scholarship, and a limiting worldview detrimental to all those who choose to walk through the doors, and Jordan B. Peterson will no longer be participating in it.
“He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.”
I look forward to seeing what Peterson will be doing with all his free time. I love his books, and if you haven’t read them, you should.

#Let’s Go Brandon
Let’s go Brandon is the rallying cry right now for faith & freedom loving Americans; and perhaps for liberty-loving people worldwide.
Mike Huckabee was being very gracious in saying that the reporter at the racetrack confused what was being said by the fans in the background by claiming the crowd was saying Let’s Go Brandon ( #LGB ) when the crowd was being sufficiently vocal for it to be clearly understood that they were chanting #FJB. Now, to give her credit, it rhymes. Most of us are aware that the CNN reporter was attempting to cover up-hide what was really being said and that she did it in either standard CNN reporter malpractice or for fear of losing her job for telling the truth instead of towing the Dem Party Line and covering up the truth when it doesn’t fit their agenda.
The left doesn’t lie to us because the truth will hurt our feelings; they lie to us because the truth might provoke us to make choices that won’t serve their interests. In the not too distant future people will wonder how we could have let them lie to us for so long and cause so much damage to our society.
If we’d had honest journalism from the Main Stream Media over the past few years we wouldn’t have China Joe in the White House and we would still have a booming economy. Therefore, it is time to wake up, speak up, and take back our country.
Awake Not Woke
Americans would do well to become very aware of the language employed by progressives in order to erode fundamental American freedoms and our traditional way of life. Freedom of Religion gets changed to Freedom of Worship, which sounds innocent and harmless but it is not.
The left’s hate machine is very deceptive and dangerous but God’s word imparts strength to overcome their machinations. Be awake and be wise.
God bless Israel. If God had chosen any other people group for His special purposes they would have been hated just as much as the Jews have been down through the years.
The Left’s Hate Machine is Going to Get More People Hurt
Recently I read an article that purported to rank the most highly educated states ain the U.S. not suprpisingly it was a heavily sponsored “fluff piece” with very little factual data and statistics. It seemed to be designed to give positive strokes to the woke ones and assure them that they are the smart ones for following the leftist agenda without questioning or truly thinking things out.
It was funny in a way because it was just another example of the left’s hate machine at work.
At the same time it was a bit puzzling to see the glaring errors and data skewing in the article and realize that the woke ones are happily accepting its premise. Those who are awake are the truly educaated.
What counts as education?
Simply graduating from college does not count.
People coming out of college tend to reflect the biases and limitations of their professors rather than having a legitimate understanding of the course material which they studied and eregurgitated to obtain good grades without ever learning to truly think for themselves and be able to reason things out. And the colleges and universities are rewarded for turning out mindless sheep who think they have been educated.
The woke ones aren’t learning from history, in part because they aren’t being taught real history and have been conditioned to think that history contains no fixed facts. For that very reason, they are unable to see where the ideology they are believing in will take them and us if we are not able to awaken them to genuine reality.
The left doesn’t just dislike Western Values; they hate them. I am fully aware that to some that may sound a bit overboard but it is an observable fact. When you realize or recall the fact that Western Values have Judeo-Christian Values as the foundation stones then it begins to become a bit more clear why the left has the opposition it does to those values.

Chuckie is a poster child from the atheistic, self-serving, anti-Christian Democrats. If we want this nation to exist as a free and prosperous society then we should never ever vote democrat. What Chuckie does not understand is that “the more we fall in love with God the more His commands quit sounding like orders & begin sounding like good and helpful principles that enrich our lives.” – Stan Toler
