Today as I was walking outside it came to my thoughts that, “We just aren’t made that way”…. ponder it a moment and tell me what that means to you?
God’s children and all of his creation are precious in his sight. How many can say they delight in God’s creation as He does? All creatures big and small and everything made was always intended to work together in harmony.
The innocence of little animals brings smiles to our faces and we cherish moments when we see them up close and sometimes they pause and let us watch them.
We even marvel at the strength and beauty of a tiger who could tear us limb from limb… even longing to touch the wild ferrocious creature… but knowing we can not go near. So we marvel this beauty from afar.
We instinctively stand in awe when we God’s handiwork. We take it in with joy and want to soak every bit of it up.
That is how we are made. We even see the beauty in an old barn and wonder what it was like back in the day when it was at its finest…
And who doesn’t marvel at the beauty of the majestic horse?
The birth of a child brings us great joy… and birthdays are remembered in celebration of that day and to recount all the days of their life here upon the earth and what they have accomplished year to year with each one.
We simply weren’t made for fighting, we were made to love and nourish. We were made to see the beauty around us and in others. We were made to care for all of God’s creation and build it up. We were not made to tear it down, to hate or to fight.
Yes we are as sheep and wonderful sheep at that. The Lord is our Shepherd! Psalms 23:1
Ponder it and you will undoubtedly find there is a big difference between a fool and a sheep. God’s human sheep are innocent, and trusting. They see the beauty in creation, and tend to help the least of those they see and make sure to nurture the ones lacking. They share and care and tend to what needs done to provide for the day and tomorrow. They are generally peaceful and don’t like to fight. They can be stubborn, but that’s alright, long as they learn to use it for good. And all of that is their downfall, as they are made to love and enjoy peace, therefore they are easy targets for the devils that seek to kill, steal and destroy.
God knows full well the heart of His children, all of them. That being said, He knows who has what it takes to be a member of His front line army of protection over his children and who needs sent home to do other work. For not all are made battle ready for hand to hand combat. Such as is told in the story of Gideon in the book of Judges. The story of Gideon shows many life lessons that hold deep truths that apply throughout all the ages. One of those truths is God’s miraculous power, and His wisdom in knowing who to send into battle and who to send home to do other work. For God is not one to have men die needlessly on the front lines because they are not prepared for the onslaught of such a war. Instead, he has those ones serve his purpose in other ways. So today as we battle the lizard people who seek to devour God’s sheep our greatest weapon is drawing upon the strength of God’s Holy Spirit in our heart and in knowing whose sheep we are. We are God’s sheep. And no one touches God’s sheep without kindling His anger. But, as we eagerly await for God to bring down the Lizard people we often get discouraged when it looks like nothing is being done outside of the pasture we are grazing in. We forget that God’s ways are not our ways. So, let us pondered this.
For as God said to Isaiah in 55:8 ““For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”
We see this play out “LOUDLY” in the Book of Judges and the account of Gideon’s Army.
The Bible tells us in the book of Judges that Israel was being invaded year after year by hordes of nomadic Midianites who deprived them of both crops and livestock. The people had cried out to God for help and God sent an angel who met Gideon, secretly threshing wheat in a wine-press—to hide it from the marauding Midianites—the angel greeted him with the words: “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valour”.
And here we are today, prepping to survive the invading Lizards who have been invading us year after year and now we are being threatened to be deprived of our own incomes, due to antics in this global war by their deceitful banking and destructive budgets. The fiat central banks and officials who make decisions are bent on having their RESET, one way or the other. We are in the heat of the battle of who will reign over the monetary system…will it be sovereign nations with a gold backed dollar or will it be the lizard empire and a track and obey digital system? All while people are undergoing toxic food, air and water and injected with DNA altering, cancer causing, oxygen depriving, heart attack producing biowarfare.
And everyone is shouting… “Where are the military men who swore an oath to defend and protect the constitution and We The People?”
We fast forward in the book of Judges and see that Gideon accepts the call to stand against the Midianites with God and mobilises some of the local tribes to battle the good fight, but despite this clear call, he ponders on the fact that he is an untried soldier, ignorant of the methods of warfare. He says to God, “My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family”. Gideon seeks a sign and after several answers from God that He shall be with them, finally Gideon gathers an army of 32,000 men, and they set out to fight the armies of Midian.
Then, after all of that, we fast forward to Chapter 7 that Gideon, got up early along with all of his soldiers preparing to head for their camp that lay in the valley to their north and the Lord told Gideon, “You have too many soldiers with you for me to drop Midian into their hands, because Israel would become arrogant and say, ‘It was my own abilities that delivered me.” Gideon was told to ask in full view of the soldiers, “Whoever is afraid or is trembling, they may go back from Mount Gilead and return home.” So 22,000 soldiers left and 10,000 remained. (Let the number of who went home soak in!)
Today, we are very wise to pay attention to what the Bible says, for we are right now, just as in the days of Gideon. Many are shouting of war and patriots are ready to do whatever it takes, but many are simply not the best to take that task on and God well knows it. We must also take heed to our boasting of our military and our Gideon Commander In Chief (and most all know of whom I speak). We must remember first and foremost that God will win the war against the lizard people and not men, should any man boast. It is God who shall give our leaders wisdom and it is God who leads them.
Just look at the leaders of the enemy and watch Joey Avatar and his NATZI partners. These are not smart, they are only sneaky, deceptive liars and hate those who get in the way of their RESET plans. They even kill their own when they get out of line or fail their missions. There truly is no honor among thieves.
Back to Gideon: So God said to Gideon, “There are still too many soldiers. Bring them down to the water and I’ll refine them for you there. Therefore when I say to you, ‘This one will be going with you,’ he’ll go with you, but the ones I say won’t be going with you won’t.
And so Gideon brought his soldiers down to the water, and the Lord told Gideon, “You are to cull out everyone who laps up water with his tongue like a dog from everyone who kneels to drink.” So the number of soldiers who lapped water with their hands to their mouths numbered 300 men, but everyone else kneeled to drink water.
Then the Lord told Gideon, “I’m going to deliver you with the 300 soldiers who lapped by giving the Midianites into your control. Send everyone else back to their own homes. So Gideon sent all the rest of the soldiers of Israel back to their own tents, but he retained the 300 men. And the Midian encampment was below him in the valley.
Later that same night, the Lord directed Gideon to get up and go down to the Midianite camp and spy on them to hear what they are saying. He even said if he was afraid to go alone, then to take his servant Purah with him because he really wanted Gideon to hear what they were doing. So he and his servant Purah went down to the outposts of the encamped army of the Midianites, the Amalekites, and certain groups from the east, all of them lay encamped in the valley, as thick as locusts. The number of their camels couldn’t be calculated—they seemed as numerous as the sand on the seashore.
Gideon arrived just as a soldier was talking to a friend about a dream. “Look!” he was saying. “I had a dream that went like this: A loaf of barley bread rolled into the Midianite encampment, came to a tent, and collided with it. The loaf of bread fell down, turned upside down, and the tent collapsed!” Then his friend replied, “Can this be anything else than the sword of Joash’s son Gideon, that man from Israel? God must have given Midian and the entire encampment into his control!”
When Gideon heard the tale of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed down in worship and then returned to the Israeli encampment for God has shown him the victory and the fear of the men in the enemies camp.
Gideon shouted to his men,“Get up! The Lord has given the Midianite army into your control!” Then he separated the 300 men into three companies and gave them each trumpets to carry, along with jars into which he placed lit torches.
He instructed them, “Watch me, and do what I do. When we come to the outer perimeter of the encampment, do what I do. When I sound my trumpet, accompanied by everyone who is with me, you must blow your trumpets all around the entire encampment. Then shout out, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’”
So Gideon and the 100 men with him arrived at the outer edge of the encampment at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had posted sentries. They blew their trumpets and smashed the jars that they were carrying in their hands. When the three companies sounded their trumpets and broke the jars it caused a great light to shine out, they held the torches in their left hands and sounded their trumpets with their right hands. Then they cried out, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”
The Sword of the Lord and a Great Light!
As the 300 trumpets were being sounded, the Lord turned the swords of the Midianite soldiers against one another throughout the entire army, and the army ran away as far as Beth-shittah in the direction of Zererah.
Gideon and his men stood and watched the Lord defeat the Midianites without having to strike a blow! It was the Lord’s instruction and wisdom that gave Gideon’s army their great victory.
The enemy fled and Israeli soldiers were called out from the territories of Naphtali, Asher, and throughout Manasseh, and they chased after the Midianites.
Gideon dispatched messengers throughout the mountainous region of Ephraim, notifying them, “Come down to fight Midian. Capture the water crossings as far as Beth-barah and the Jordan River before they can get to them.” They captured two Midianite leaders, Oreb and Zeeb. While they were pursuing the Midianites, they executed Oreb at Oreb’s Rock and Zeeb at Zeeb’s Winepress, and then they carried the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon from the east bank of the Jordan River.
They were victorious, yet, later when the descendants of Ephraim spoke to Gideon and argued that they never called on them to go out and fight Midian! But Gideon told them it was God who gave the victory and won the battle. And that calmed them down. But when Gideon and the 300 soldiers came to the Jordan exhausted but continuing their pursuit, he told the men of Succoth to please give loaves of bread to the soldiers who were following behind him who were tired and pursuing Zebah and Zalmunna the kings of Midian. But the officials at Succoth said, “Do you have Zebah and Zalmunna in custody already that we should feed your army?”
This is so much like today as we see the heads that have rolled in this “Show” which is a war, and we have many of those who Trump and the Whitehats are fighting for asking… where are the rest of the heads, even while they are yet in pursuit! The shouts of why should we support your efforts, we don’t see all the heads!
And others shouting… “Hey, we’re ready to get in the battle. Why haven’t they called on us? Grrrrr!” Well, God sees the enemy and he is leading a plan and yes many are dying by their own bad decisions… each had a choice. Some couldn’t make the right one and others had little choice as things were forced on them. We are in the midst of terrible tribulation and a good number of people can’t even see it. The far left are out there fighting for their rights in the faces of God’s sheep and most of the sheep have been silent. Why? Because they just aren’t made that way. They aren’t made to hate and fight. And sadly they have been led as sheep to the slaughter by false shepherds seated in high places of authority. They need God to send His hand of protection over them and send in His annointed Army to fight for them. For they are not wolves… they are not tigers, nor lions… they ARE GOD’S CHILDREN! I believe God has heard their crys and there is a Gideon’s 300 working in stealth behind the veil and they are WINNING!
What you do to God’s annointed, will come back to you double. It is wise to do good.
So back to Gideon after the people in Succoth responded so stupidly and refused to feed (support) Gideon’s 300, “Ok then, but when the Lord has turned over Zebah and Zalmunna into my control, I’m going to whip you with thorns and briers from the desert!” (kind of like what is taking place with a lot of the impatient ones who are supposed to be on the same side (RINOs and such) … or so it appears to look like the same type of thing.)
So Gideon left there to go to Penuel and asked the same thing from them, but the men of Penuel responded the same way the men of Succoth did. So he responded the same way to the men of Penuel, “When I come back safely, I’m going to tear down this tower.” (Sad this is where we are today as many are not happy with not having all the heads shown RIGHT NOW.)
Now the kings Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, along with their armies, about 15,000 men who survived from the entire army of the group from the east, since 120,000 swordsmen had already fallen. Gideon went up by a caravan route east of Nobah and Jogbehah and attacked their encampment when they were off guard. When Zebah and Zalmunna escaped, he pursued them, captured those two kings of Midian, and threw the enemies entire army into a panic. (Note they went for the heads… they had half of them, and now they got the other half!!)
Then Joash’s son Gideon returned from the battle along the Heres Ascent. He caught a young man from Succoth and interrogated him. He wrote out for Gideon a list of the 77 officials of Succoth, including its elders who had made the decisions to not feed his armies. (Whistle blowers…. now they have all the names! Just like our Commander In Chief has all the names and he caught them all!) Then Gideon approached the men of Succoth and announced, “Here are Zebah and Zalmunna. You criticized (condemned, mocked) me about them when you said, ‘Do you have Zebah and Zalmunna in custody already, so that we should give food to your weary army?’” So he took the elders of the city and disciplined the men of Succoth with thorns and briers from the desert. He also demolished the tower in Penuel and killed the men of the city.
Afterwards, he asked Zebah and Zalmunna, “What were the men like whom you killed at Tabor?”
They answered, “Like you, each one like the son of a king…”
Gideon replied, “They were my brothers—sons from my own mother. As the Lord lives, if you had let them live, I wouldn’t be killing you.” Then he told his firstborn son Jether, “Get up and kill them!” But he was afraid, since he was still only a youngster.
Then Zebah and Zalmunna responded, “Get up and attack us yourself, since a man’s valor is only as good as the man himself.” So Gideon got up, killed Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the crescent-shaped necklaces that adorned the necks of their camels. Then the men of Israel asked Gideon, “Rule over us—you, your son, and your grandsons—because you have delivered us from Midian’s domination.”
But Gideon told them, “I won’t rule over you and my son won’t rule over you. The Lord will rule you.”
The war we are in at this very moment, may seem like it makes no sense. But that is because it is being fought outside the battlefield and some of the most arrogant and underserving of all are yet the officials making the decisions that bring shame and woe upon their own cities and states. Their words are unwise and their motives ungodly. Hypocrisy abounds and many are not deserving of their seats, yet the people are divided between those who have to see the heads first and lack faith that there are many fighting on the frontlines, and those who stand with Gideon and trust God has already won the war and desire to give them bread (support), in spite of the mandates of the wicked officials.
So hang on as God’s army continues the pursuit and know that the heads of wicked Kings, politicians, and KM Oligarch and their thugs are as this: some have been arrested, tried and imprisoned, some have been tried, found guilty and executed, some are awaiting their tribunals, and the rest are on the run as the White hats are in pursuit.
As I was shown this morning… God’s people just aren’t made that way.
That way meaning like the enemy. We aren’t made to wake up and think of evil things to do to our neighbors and take what they have and use it to Lord over others wickedly with cruel mandates. We weren’t made to do things that were opposite of love and nurturing. Those are things the world makes and teaches through cruel and unjust dictates. We just weren’t made like that, nor made to be that. We are tempted to do such things, but we are not made to do such things. We were given free will to choose what to think, feel and decide. Those who believe have the Holy Spirit to guide them. But the free will is the first step of the process. Ask and you shall receive. It is written in James 4:2, “ Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.”
We were made to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves and to be his people. We were made God’s children through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son and all who believe on Him, he shall dwell inside of them and we in Him for we are the living stones of the Temple of God, of who Jesus the Christ is the cornerstone and High priest of it.
So when this world is rocking back and forth, the same as the Word of God said it would. Let us therefore be strong in faith knowing that God has said that His people, who are called by His name shall win and reign in peace for a thousand years and the wicked ones shall be removed from the earth and no more of their evil shall come upon them in any way. Amen.
Keep on pressing into the Kingdom of God! Press, press, press!
