I hope you had a great weekend. I am really excited for this coming week on Chosen Generation. I am kicking the week off with some personal commentary on the first half hour followed by Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel for Liberty Institute. Our religious freedoms continue to be under attack and Jeremy joins me to give us an update on the cross at Mt. Soledad, the continued attacks against our military and specifically our Veterans and do students have first amendment rights? Jeremy joins me to discuss these important issues.
Also coming up this week I will have Michael Farris, founder of Home School Legal Defense Association and its Chairman, founder of Parental Rights.org, Chancellor of Patrick Henry College and organizational architect of Conventionofstates.com. Farris is a constitutional appellate litigator who has served as lead counsel in the United States Supreme Court, eight federal circuit courts, and the appellate courts of 13 states.
He has been a leader on Capitol Hill for over 30 years and is widely known for his leadership on homeschooling, religious freedom, and the preservation of American sovereignty.
At Patrick Henry College, Farris teaches constitutional law, public international law, and coaches PHC’s Moot Court team which has won seven national championships.
A prolific author, Farris has been recognized with a number of awards including the Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship by the Heritage Foundation and as one of the “Top 100 Faces in Education for the 20th Century” by Education Week magazine.
He will join me for a full hour focused on the Convention of States, its goals and the parallel between this movement and the book by Mark Levin.
Wednesday will bring us Dan Gainor in the BC Zone and James Williamson Not in my Town. On Thursday I will be joined in the first half hour by Brian Fischer of American Family Association as we discuss the sanctity of life and the continued push by the abortion industry to prepare an entire generation to choose abortion as a means of birth control. In the second half hour Ken Thornberg founder of Freedom Encounters will be with me to discuss their deliverance ministry and how spiritual warfare is so important in the fight for this nation.
I believe that the battle for this country will be fought first in the realm of the spirit. I know that some would contend with this and please understand that I do not mean no action in the natural. In fact warring in the realm of the spirit is probably the most exhausting. I have often felt that the Israelites that were sent to take their promised land while having to fight real giants and powerful armies were really quite fortunate in that they could see their enemy and go to war. They were able to see their enemy and when they had vanquished them from the land they had won the war. Our battle in these days, depending on how close to the end of this age you believe we might be, is truly wrestling not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers of wickedness in heavenly places. Therefore we must do some heavy spiritual lifting to win this war. The evil that has been released into this nation can only truly be understood in these terms. The heart of man is wicked;
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
This is what Jesus meant when He told the Saducees and the Pharisees that they were of their father the devil, the father of lies. We have all inherited the sin nature, what is sin, if not evil. The Saducees and Pharisees missed it, rather than becoming offended and missing it, they should have realized that Yeshua was telling then why they needed Him. As the Psalmist writes we are shaped in iniquity. Is it any wonder the evil in the world has grown exponentially? Much of the church is so afraid of offending the lost they forget to tell them why they are lost. Salvation only comes when the old man is crucified. One of my favorite verses is Galatians 2:20, I am crucified with Christ, never the less I live but not I but Christ lives in me and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God. Crucified with Christ, means I must die that He lives in me. It means that the evil that is driving the marxist agenda, homosexual agenda, islamic agenda and every other ideology that attempts to exalt itself above our God and His Son Yeshua has one origin. The devil is what is behind all of this and the word says that Yeshua has disarmed principalities and made a spectacle of them. We must apply that power that has been given to us and we must disarm these principalities in our spiritual warfare before we will overcome in the natural. I know that for some this seems as though it is out of some movie script, but I tell you the truth, that the bible is true, it is God’s word and there is nothing more real than that. This past week I had Jackie Carpenter on my program as she described what happened to her son. The false charges against him as he stood his ground. After spending months, day and night, studying the stand your ground laws in Georgia and Texas, she became so ill she had to have a blood transfusion. Then God spoke to her in the hospital and said you have been looking in the wrong books. He directed her to Psalms and told her to remain under the shadow of His wings. As she spoke this at the end of the program I felt the Holy Spirit say to release that word over the air to my listeners and beyond. It is not a place of retreat it is a place of power and authority. Here is a link to the show.
I am convinced that we are the generation that God has equipped and has chosen for this hour. So many people are being drawn here to the Hill Country and to Texas for this battle. Most had never heard of this area much like myself, and yet we know God has us here. It is time to rise up and engage.
