The Pivot Back to Liberty

By Chris Rossini

Sincere advocates of liberty need to travel a tough and rugged path. Surrounded by the darkness of empire and its draconian reach into all aspects of our lives, champions of liberty must keep their eyes on the prize without becoming despondent.

This can be challenging in a society that has come to rely so heavily on the state. The ideas of liberty are hardly ever considered an option. Often they’re even frowned upon.

How does one deal with such a situation? Once you understand the principles of liberty, you can’t just give up on them and pretend they don’t exist. So how does one grapple with times that are so deleterious to liberty?

The easiest way is to contemplate the big picture. If there’s one thing about life, it’s that it hardly ever moves in one direction for very long. Pivots and reversals regularly occur and often when they’re least expected.

In fact, prior to the formation of the American empire, it was the warmongers themselves who were despondent. They were the ones who had to live with the reality that their ideas were not an option.

It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?

Michael Snyder: The 70 Nations That Will Meet In Paris On January 15th Are Going To Publicly Commit To Dividing The Land Of Israel

earth-sun-space-public-domain-700x400A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70 nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked.  As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two state solution.  Of course this comes on the heels of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which many believe represented America’s greatest betrayal of Israel.  Israeli government officials are publicly warning that there is a possibility that the principles agreed upon at this conference may form the basis for another Security Council resolution before January 20th, and this is something that we should all be watching for very closely.

Editor’s note:  It is definitely time to pray!  

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there regarding My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.  

Joel 3: 1-2

Is simulation theory compatible with enclosed cosmology? Does it help explain many of the still unresolved questions of our reality? Or is it just another layer of deception…?

Where is the Church? An Update on the Pro-Life Bill Happenings by Bob Donohoo

Article by Bob Donohoo on facebook
Oklahoma City, OK

Baby Feet on Red RibbonSeveral people have asked that I publish the numbers showing Oklahoma State Legislature support for the Pro-Life bill, SB1552, and the activities of this last Friday to override Governor Fallin’s veto. Based on conversations with several legislators and others allow me to give an account as I understand it.

On Thursday there were several senators and representatives working together to see if they could delay the vote on the budget bill in the House long enough to get an override of Governor Fallin’s veto in the Senate and over to the House. At that time the thought was that the Senate needed about three more votes for a successful override and it appeared achievable. Several senators were diligently working on gathering the final support. In the House there were about 10 representatives on board with doing what they could do to delay to budget bill vote but they had yet to fully socialize the idea with other representatives. There was also the challenge of getting the leadership of both chambers to allow a veto override vote to occur at all.

With only a 12 hour notice by email there were about 80 citizens at the capital Friday morning at 7:30AM to do what we could to encourage legislator support. These activists divided up into three teams. The largest share by far stood by the office doors of representatives waiting for them to arrive for the day and ask for their support of this strategy. There was a second far smaller team that stood by the three entrances to the House Chamber making the same request of representatives as they entered. A third team was assisting the senators who were engaged in getting the remaining support for an override.

Our efforts as engaged citizens worked in the House. The plan to delay the budget bill vote was discussed on the House floor and supported by enough representatives to make happen. On the Senate side the count was stalled at 23 in support of the Pro-Life bill, 3 maybes, and 3 against but would likely have flipped to yes votes should be bill actually be voted on. This left us 3 votes short of a successful override. The pool of remaining senators were either not facing an election this fall or were termed out. They simply had little appetite to stand up to Governor Fallin who was on the Senate floor solidifying support for her veto during these final moments of session.

Finally, while supportive senators were discussing what they could do to get around Senate Leadership and hold a vote anyway Senate Leadership ended session leaving unfinished business behind instead of risking a successful maneuver to get the Pro-Life bill heard on the floor.

It’s well worth noting, as told to me by one supportive legislator, that if there were a couple of thousand more citizens engaged this last week at the capital we would likely have our veto override. We were measured and viewed as lacking.

Wise Men Seek Him all the Time; Wise Men Give Gifts; Wise Men Love Others

Dear Friends,

Wise Men Still Seek HimEvery year, I try to write an annual letter because there are some people that I don’t see as often as I would like to and I love hearing from them and what they have been doing so I try to reciprocate. Some years it happens and other years it just doesn’t. Sometimes they go out at Thanksgiving time, other years near Christmas and sometimes they are around New Years. Looks like this one is headed for the latter zone!

Happy-New-Year-Icon

When I moved to Oklahoma in late 2004, I worked in the financial arena for several years. Then slowly, I became more and more involved in the political arena, mostly having to do with Ron Paul’s campaign for president. An entire movement grew out of those efforts, not just mine but so many wonderful people. I met so many other folks who care deeply about God and country and trying to get us back to life and liberty as the undercurrent to our decision-making. And then in 2009 along came the teaparty efforts and another wave of people generally like-minded awoke and I thought well there is hope and I continued for a bit until the teaparty became just another branch of the RNC or the previous ‘conservative’ wings to be talked about in campaign season and ignored once in office.

It gets old after a while!

Many of you know that my earthly father was a great bible teacher and a student of end times prophecy. One of his best friends, Jesse Jones and I began working together to publish some of Jesse’s books online. You can see this collection (available for free online here on Scribd)

Somewhere along this timeframe I began discovering the wonderful world of essential oils and the many health benefits of same. I am finding remarkable things about the ways they can change our lives for the better.  I use them daily for breathing, energy, pleasure, health, antibacterial uses, disease fighting, disease prevention, and a myriad of other ways to apply and enjoy. It was actually this cartoon, shared by several friends, that prompted this post.

Gifts from wise men - oils

I want to be about sharing the things that help us while here on planet earth, and the things which teach us about the Lord’s will and His ways and how following Him makes all the difference.  He made us and we work best when we follow the manufacturer’s handbook (the bible old and new testaments).

For I am the LordI change not;   Malachi 3:6

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  Hebrews 13:8

So one of the ways I am discovering more about Him is by rediscovering my Hebrew roots.  I am working to learn a little more about the Hebrew language, the Jewish feast days and the Jewish calendar (or I should say calendars).  I have done a post on this recently here so you can see more on the aleph bet gimmel cards and the biblical calendar.01 119 aleph

I still work on keeping information flowing to a group of people in Oklahoma and a few in other states as well interested in politics and how we may make a difference.  My ideas on what is important really have shifted a lot in recent years.  I used to think by electing the right people we could change the world.  I now believe that as we change the culture we will elect the right people.  Sadly from the looks of things in 2016, so far, we have a long ways to go.  People are still listening to the media and watching the presidential race and failing to pay attention to matters in their own backyards.  It begins at home and in our local communities!

We might begin by changing how we order our priorities, how we spend our time, who we do business with, how we spend money, and who we donate our time and treasure too.  I am talking to myself more than anyone else here, but if you find yourself in the same place, maybe we can hold each other accountable.

I have several goals for 2016 — some personal and some worth sharing.  I am working diligently to remove clutter from my life.  I want to know what is important and what is not.  Last year, I eliminated TV.  That simple step has reduced cost and increased time for other things and amazingly, I think I hear better in the spiritual realm without all the peripheral noise.  This year, I have begun my long term project of downsizing personal files and stacks of things to do.  Each pile is itself a project, so we’ll see how far that one goes!  I will continue helping people find the right oil(s) and doing personal research and sharing there as is appropriate but more than the oils and along with the oils, I want to pray with and encourage people to seek the Lord and respond in the time that we have to do so.

I have discovered Google Hangouts and am already on Skype.  If you would like to visit periodically that way let me know when we can connect and we’ll schedule something.  I am spending less and less time on the internet, so call me or text me to set something up.  And of course there’s always the old cellphone.

May you be blessed beyond measure as you seek to walk in His Way, along His Path, listening for and to His voice; blessing as many as you are able to in ways that you recognize and some that you are unaware of completely — moving in His Spirit to accomplish His Will at all times and in all places.  I look forward to seeing how our paths cross!

Blessings to you and yours,

Sandie
