The Armor of God

Ephesians 6:10-18 (ESV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15 and,as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;

17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints

NOTE:  Our Budgy makes her debut with her first post above here at Heyoka Patriots.  Couldn’t have done it any better myself.

Just more scriptural food for thought down the road we are being led:

Proverbs 22:3 (KJV)

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

Isaiah 26:20-21  (KJV)

 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Mark 13:37  (KJV)

And what I say unto you I say unto all, WATCH

DONE AND DUSTED

Is this where America finds itself today?   How many answers do we have to all the so called congressional investigations that have been conducted in the last 4 years?  How many steps have been taken to bring America back from the brink?  I could go on and on but the answer remains the same for all of them; not to mention that with each dawning day we encounter a new problem on the horizon.  In fact, there are so many, I am to the point of not even wanting to hear about all of them.  It’s been said to “never let a good crisis go to waste”, well I say:

Grab every opportunity you can through the door to conquer it, even if you have to drag it in kicking and screaming – what more do we have to lose.

FOR WE ARE ONLY HUMAN

“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.

It is healthy to be reminded

that the strongest might weaken

and the wisest might err”

~~~ Mahatma Gandhi

 

To err is human; to forgive, is divine

~~~ Alexander Pope

 

Romans 3:23 (KJV)

 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

THE CLOCK HAS BEEN STOPPED; BUT YOU HOLD THE KEY

Because I have made it stop and here is why:

Ephesians 4

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

and

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

I let the sun go down on my anger and pain as I let sin in.  And for what is was worth I gave a sincere apology for the outburst to all and to Katie.

I have let it all go, even the hurt.  From this day forward I seek to be kind to everyone, more tenderhearted, more forgiving because I know that God has forgiven me of my many sins and even this one of lashing out.

KatieYou do not owe me any apologies of any kind.  It’s over and I pray that in time you can understand all, forgive me, forgive Troy, yes, forgive yourself and most importantly – forget as I too shall do.  You need have no fear of posting here.  I will assure you that all will be forgotten as Yahweh (God) does -

Isaiah 43:25 (KJV)

 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

And we will get back to the peace we have all had for 5 years now on Heyoka Patriots.  That choice however is fully yours.  Your resuming posting will be enough for me.

There will be no further discussion on this whole situation.  If everyone wants to keep this blog, then we must do what we have to do to keep it running and that is get back to the business at hand.  If that is not possible for anyone or for any reason, then I suggest you walk away before the day is over and if there are no comments posted by noon tomorrow of news and views by at least 4 people besides myself, then the blog will be turned off.   We all have been hurt in some respect over the whole unfortunate situation and as I have stated, I assume full responsibility.  But the thing is all of us are big enough to let it go.  If not, I for one will definitely understand because it will be one of the hardest things you have ever had to do – and that is LET IT GO.  I truly regret all of it, but at this point nothing more can be done except to pray for all involved (yes that means me too) .

I will resume the duties I have here, as well as my other site.  I can’t guarantee that I will write many threads, but there will be something.  Time will heal all the wounds.  I really did not fully realize Troy didn’t want to be a full time administrator, but can’t say that I blame him.  He doesn’t have the time with all the hats he wears, but neither do I really and there have been times where I was totally stressed about writing something.  Yet, somehow I managed and I will manage again, but with a different purpose this time around.  So now hopefully my journey will continue here at Heyoka Patriots, if not, so be it as I have been through the letting go and moving on with a purpose.

In the past there were times I struggled to think of something to write about, but can honestly say that many of the things I wrote about were given to me by turning it over to the Lord for inspiration as I was BLANK and you were seeing those things as the scriptures flooded my mind.   Sure I could have posted a news headline like some sites do, but I have always wanted to make this place more personal and one that would enlighten and make people think and yes, even laugh.  My primary emphasis of some threads as I hopefully will be led to write, will be mainly from the standpoint of being informed how the demise of America and other parts of the world are fulfilling prophecy.  Again I point out, there are always more than two sides to every story, the well known side and the not so well known side and all those in between.  My goal is one of being informed on all counts and in the process strengthening our faith in YHWH(Yahweh) and in his son Yeshua(Jesus) and using the Bible as it is the infallible Word of Our God given through his divine inspiration and His Son, to his Prophets and Disciples which in turn were recorded thousands of years ago for all mankind.  Furthermore, it is not necessary for anyone to comment on these threads; after all they are only to provide a thread to post under.

At this point I don’t know how many will want to remain, especially in light of a somewhat different concept, yet not totally new.  Through my now limited number of indepth (meaty) articles,  I personally want to reach out to the Holy Spirit for wisdom to discern the truth in all things taking place and that by doing so that we will all be girded with the armor of God in all of our endeavors.  My goal is simple, I seek truth and wisdom in the belief of Yahweh (God)  and with the Heyoka way of asking  difficult questions, and by saying things others are too afraid to say.  By reading between the lines, being able to think about things not usually thought about, and by looking at things in a different way.  Again, if this too is not something anyone wants to be a part of – you too may leave of your own free will and that will be signified by doing as stated above, in the same manner with the same stipulations.

IT’S IN YOUR HANDS AND NO ONE WILL BE LOOKED UPON IN A BAD LIGHT IF THE DECISION IS MADE TO LEAVE.  I FOR ONE, WILL TOTALLY UNDERSTAND.

Furthermore, I thank everyone for your persistence in wanting me back and that was indeed something I took into consideration, along with my devotion to Troy as he is a man who is also persistent, slow to anger and calm in a crisis, even though he can be very blunt and tell it like it is.  Men like him must have been the ones who said – The Truth Hurts But It Doesn’t Kill You.
