What is Hope?

Today in American society being somewhat demanding of others to the point of expecting them to capitulate is simply Arrogant and Audacious. That is the feeling I get when I see a certain book in a bookstore or clearance house. The book is “The Audacity of Hope” by former President (#44) Barack Hussain Obama. I can only speculate on its contents because I cannot stand to look even past the title.

To me it is arrogant for someone to treat other people as inferior and to suggest they have the audacity to even hope. What is hope “The substance of things that are not seen” as in the bible? Without hope what is there?

Our nation’s young people exhibit life without hope. They become restless; disrespectful; arrogant; and audacious in words and in deeds. They act like the fools they have become because they have no hope. They are our future and they are our present; we are the past and we as a society have failed to place God first in our lives or to teach our children about the love of God for them.

So what has President Donald Trump (#45) brought to the table that his predecessor did not bring? What is catching the youth of today and giving them new life? What is turning on the minds of tomorrow? What is in the air? It’s infatuating; it’s mindboggling; it’s stimulating – It is HOPE restored.

Political correctness stifles the mind and body and when pursued it brings about death from within and without. Hope does not depend on political correctness. Hope tares down the invisible walls of fear and frees the very soul of humanity.

Hope is essential and comes from God. Without God there can be no hope. Not true hope, because without God all hope is lost. With God all things are possible. With God hope soars and cannot be bound.

When God gave vision to the underdog that vision was hope. Hope in a future. Hope of what America can become once again with God in control. When God brought forth the underdog, it was Donald J. Trump, who began wrecking the very idea that it was OK to be politically correct.

When God brought forth President Donald J. Trump, God brought forth hope; hope in America; hope for a better future for all American’s; hope for the world that God loves so very much.

God gave his only Son that through him the world might be saved from the penalty that sin deserves. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

It’s the Journey

It’s the Journey

Once upon a time in a land far, far away there lived a giant bear so huge that they named a nature center after it. It’s my recollection of how this story should begin, but in reality……..

When my grandkids were young we used to go on a nature walk at the Bear Creek Regional Park in Colorado Springs where they have a nature center with pictures and information on native animals and birds of the area. Leading out from the nature center are some pretty neat trails that are fun that the kids loved walking.

On one particular day we parked in the lot and headed over to the trail. As we began to walk I reminded them to look for signs of wild animals. I cautioned my youngest grandson about bears and if one began chasing us, not to worry unless you’re the slowest runner and I told him papa could outrun him. He didn’t think that was funny.

A bit later I spotted something on the ground that all the kids had passed by, so I called out to them to come back and take a look as I had found sign of a carpenter bear. They raced each other to see who would get to me first. I waited until all four were there and looking for the sign. I pointed it out and it was a rusty old nail. I said a carpenter bear must have left it. They all sighed, “Oh Papa”!

We continued on and there were ground squirrels, birds and even fish in the creek. Sometimes we would stop at the old apple tree and when apples were in season they all tried to knock some apples down by tossing sticks at them. More than once we’d come across a fawn with its mother nearby. They would watch us cautiously and bolt off across the trail and up the hill. We had no hurry, no timetable of being somewhere else.

On President Trumps Accomplishments

On President Trumps Accomplishments

There is gross stupidity going around online and I have decided against attempting to influence anyone else or change their narrow mindedness. As Mark Twain once said, “Don’t argue with stupid people, because they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

I think it was yesterday that someone on Twitter said, “Name one accomplishment Trump as done as president?”

Against my better judgement I decided to break my promise to myself and answer this “age old to a Democrat” question. So I thought and thought and thought and I couldn’t name one……….

The more I thought about it all I could think of was……

  • Trump’s first official state visit overseas to Saudi Arabia where he was greeted with royal fashion by the King of Saudi Arabia and denounced terrorism while bringing the Saudi’s on board to fight terrorism
  • His stop in Israel where he cemented once again America’s friendship and support of our ally Israel
  • He stopped in Bethlehem and spoke directly about state sponsored terrorism and what happens to terrorists who attack and kill innocent people in the name of god
  • He stopped and met with the Pope at the Vatican
  • He did not bow, apologize or shake hands with terroristic leaders during this 5 day tour
  • What about the Singapore Summit with DPRK Chairman Kim Jong Un where they both signed a denuclearization agreement that affects the entire Asian hemisphere and the world
  • He secured the release of American hostages from North Korea
  • He secured the return of remains of US servicemen killed during the Korean War
  • What about the Helsinki Summit with President Vladimir Putin where he put Russia on notice not to interfere with upcoming US elections and announced US oil exports to Europe in competition with Russian oil
  • Then there are Trumps massive tax cuts which are spurring the economy with a GDP of 4.0
  • He made it lucrative for US factories to remain in the US
  • His tariffs are causing havoc and considerable readjustments between other countries trading with the US
  • The restructuring of the US Tax Code will benefit all US taxpayers
  • He began dismantling Obamacare and eliminating penalties for non-compliance
  • @potus focus on illegal immigration
  • Trumps Executive Order on child separation doesn’t fix this issue, but congress has yet to produce any conscientious in the form of legislation addressing it
  • His stance on border security has not changed and there will be a wall and Mexico will pay for it
  • Trump has made it clear that African American voters are free to reject the failed Democratic Party platform and freely vote as they choose, even if it’s Republican
  • He announced that Americans worship God not government
  • Trump is clearly uniting America in the face of extreme political correctness at all levels

Democrats resistance has morphed into full blown defiance against a president who clearly loves America and is working hard for ALL Americans. We are seeing the same level of defiance from sports, athletes, entertainers and even the media whose sole aim is to prevent this president from governing.

So forgive me if I fail to see the humor in the flawed logic of the liberal left or the misguided logic of Democratic Party and I no longer care to discuss this with you because you can’t see the tree in front of your nose. You are not patriotic, nor are you logical in your thinking. It’s time for the entire Democratic Party to bend over and grab your ankles TIGHTLY because someone needs to give you a wakeup call.

Obama was and is a fraud who plunged this nation to the point of becoming nothing more than another third world country under a socialist-communist-fascist dictatorial regime, with his willing accomplices in Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, with Soros’ finances and the embedded shadow government that is being shredded one leaker at a time.

This will take the faithful prayers of ALL Christians to enable the spirit of political correctness to be exposed for what it is, a sham that God alone is taking apart.

When you stand for nothing you will fall for any little thing, remember “The Oath” – no expiration!

It will take the men and women warriors standing side-by-side holding the line with President Trump as we collectively crush the enemy of the people and of the Constitution of the United States.

Patriots stand tall while others duck and run for cover, or do nothing, nothing at all. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Never Enough

Never Enough

I just want to ask one question. When is enough, enough? Going all the way back to the Garden of Eden, Eve was created out of one of Adams ribs. They walked and talked with Almighty God. They had everything they ever needed and wanted for nothing. So what happened? Temptation over what could be. Ever since then there has never been enough.

Moses talked with God and saw God in the fiery bush that was not consumed. More importantly God talked to Moses and gave him the stone tablet with the Ten Commandments, man’s guideline in life to obey.

The Ten Commandments

 Exodus 20 New International Version (NIV)

20 And God spoke all these words:

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

13 “You shall not murder.

14 “You shall not commit adultery.

15 “You shall not steal.

16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

 

So I ask you again when is enough, enough? Has America lost its moral compass?

The Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma state Capitol was destroyed in 2014 and the vandal was hospitalized in a mental hospital deemed unfit to stand trial.

A 2015 act approved placing the Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Arkansas Capitol grounds and that monument lasted less than 24 hours after it was installed. A second monument was installed in 2017 and has since drawn protests by various groups claiming it is unconstitutional and the Satanic Temple plans to sue the state of Arkansas.

On 16 August 2018, a bronze goat-headed satanic statue called Baphomet was presented by the Satanic Temple on a semitrailer to the public in front of the Capitol Building paying tribute to the head of this ungodly snake.

And People cheered and took pictures!

Since 2015 we have seen an increase in craziness as the spirit of political correctness has brought an increase in madness out of plain old common sense. This is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy concerning the rise of the anti-Christ.

Throughout all of this turmoil God is still in control. Christians are continuing to pray, asking God for favor and as we honor Jesus who is Christ and believe in faith God is answering our prayers. As we continue to pray we see strongholds being torn down, insolence has also increased, we see resistance, intolerance, hatred and even outright stupidity coming from every direction. Yet we are encourage and told not to fear because the Lord our God is with us.

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

We know that these things must come to pass to fulfill God’s plan as the Second Coming of Jesus is rapidly approaching. Man cannot serve two masters and we must each choose who we will serve God or satan. Choose this day who YOU will serve, your eternal destination depends on it.

John 3:16 “God so loved the world that he sent his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Stop the Presses and Hold the Wireless

Stop the Presses and Hold the Wireless

There was a time in America when common sense mattered. Men were men, women were women and the saying “boys will be boys” really meant that, and little Sally played with dolls. Those were the good old days.

At some point society changed while America was asleep at the wheel (so to speak). Was it after the invention of the television, or the record player? Maybe it was the digital audio tape? Oh it might have been when the movie screen began showing full length color movies? Or was it the publication of Playboy Magazine? Oh what secrets that revealed, no that was Victoria! It seems like overnight that America lost its innocence and the world turned upside down.

American history became a watered-down version of someone’s perception of what actually happened and facts no longer matter. World geography did not keep up with the rapidly changing and realignment of national borders. Tribes of people were no longer relevant and everyone wanted everyone else to go back to where they came from. That would be quite a feat since Iran won’t let visitors to Mount Ararat.

God’s Word had it right all along with this in Proverbs 26:4 (NLT) “Don’t answer the foolish arguments of fools, or you will become as foolish as they are.”

The all American version was spoken by Mark Twain when he said, “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.” And “Don’t argue with stupid people, for they will drag you down and beat you with experience.”

I guess there are those on the left who never got those memos, or if they did were unable to decipher their true meaning? And for all you Mensa Society members – Don’t get your hopes up either and for the rest of the world there is always Densa!

To see if you qualify take this open book test.

  1. Do they have a 4th of July in England? (Yes/No)
  2. How many birthdays does the average man have?
  3. Some months have 31 days; some months have 30. How many have 28 days?
  4. How many outs are there in an inning?
  5. Is it legal for a man in California to marry his widow’s sister? (Yes/No)
  6. Divide 30 by 1/2 and add 10, what is the answer?
  7. If there are 3 apples and you take away 2, how many do you have?
  8. A doctor gives you three pills telling you to take one every half an hour. How many minutes will the pills last?
  9. A farmer has 17 sheep, and all but 9 die. How many are left?
  10. How many animals of each sex did Moses take on the ark?
  11. A clerk in the butcher shop is 5′ 10″ tall. What does he weigh?
  12. How many two cent stamps are there in a dozen?
  13. A plane crashes on the Canadian – US border. In which country you bury the survivors?
  14. What is the least amount of coins it takes to make 55 cents if one of the coins is a quarter?

Don’t worry if you think you scored poorly on this short test, taking this test is how my friend Bubba had his accident! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

More Than Just A Flag

 

It is red, white and blue

Flies for me and for you

Stars and stripes are pure white

Red as the blood that was spilled

So that all can live free

 

It’s more than just a flag

It covers bodies in bags

And flies freely atop a great pole

So that all can live free

 

You claim patriotism is in your veins, yet you do not hesitate show the ultimate sign of disrespect for this symbol our strength as a nation.

 

I stood the line you have not seen.

I went to places you did not go.

I did it not for fame or fortune.

I did it for you!

 

You take the field in a game of chance, the chance to leave a winner where you reap the rewards of unheard of financial gain and instant facial recognition by adoring fans, because you choose to. You are simply entertainers, orchestrated athletes who run, dance and spin for the crowds. You are but the organ-grinder’s monkey.

You do not know or have felt the honor of a grateful nation. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

On Talking to God

Prayer-faith-God-Doubt-BotROCK.jpg

On Talking to God

This morning I was talking with a friend about how we as Christians pray. Many times when we pray our prayers have already been answered by the way we pray.

Did you know that you don’t even have to be a Christian to talk to God in prayer?

There are many scriptures about praying, but these two examples I’ve included in this article.

John 15:7(KJV) “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

 We are told by Jesus to abide in him, and let his words abide in us, so that we can ask anything and it will be done for us. For us it is an encouragement to immerse ourselves into the Bible and let it soak into our soul so that we can ask in accordance to the Bible and it will be done.

 James 4:2 (NIV) “You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.”

This is pretty plain we want something that we don’t have so we kill for it. We desire what we can’t have so we argue and fight over it. We don’t have because we don’t ask God for it.

What we see as Christians going on all around us across America today is spiritual warfare, a huge ugly beast and its raising up a big super ugly evil head on virtually every front. That evil is the spirit of political correctness that is bringing all of its force through the ultra-left to bear on the man Donald Trump who is the representation of the goodness of God and no I’m not saying that Donald Trump is God.

What I have said is that Christians have been praying for God to answer prayer and save the United States from certain destruction. However there has not been an organized and/or coordinated prayer effort where Christians have asked God to do anything “specific”.

In His wisdom God has chosen to take an earthly vessel, one so uncouth in human eyes, so reviling that nobody saw it coming.  God knows what’s in our hearts and minds, much more so than we can imagine and because He knows, God uses the unknown to bring about HIS purpose, and for HIS glory.

I learned many years ago an important object lesson that has kept me focused and grounded on asking God for something. One day I decided to go to the church on a Saturday when nobody was around. My purpose was to pick up trash, my own little cleanup effort. As I parked in the parking lot I realized that I had forgot to bring a trash bag to contain the trash I had planned to pick up. Oh I could have returned home or went to a nearby store and bought some trash bags but that would admit I made a mistake in forgetting a bag. Sort of speaking half to myself and partially out loud I muttered, “Lord I need a bag.”

As I opened the door and stepped out the wind blew a sandwich bag against my leg. I looked down and immediately said, “Very funny God, Very funny.” I knew then that God had answered my prayer. I also knew that we are to ask specifically when we pray.

One time while stationed in the Army in Japan I was walking back to my room coming from a bible study and noticed that the typhoon was getting closer to landfall and was headed straight to Yokohama (where I was on top of the hill in military housing area). As I walked I prayed and spoke to the storm to leave the mainland and Yokohama alone. I got to my room and went to bed. I awoke the next morning and everything was calm. I thought there must be a lot of damage (I had been on telephonic alert), so I called the military police desk to find out about damages.

The sergeant on the phone said, “It was the darndest thing in the night that storm turned west and went somewhere out to sea and missed us entirely.” Once again I knew God answered my prayer and the storm obeyed me.

What we need today are Christians who will step forward in faith, commit to prayer and join together praying for our nation, our nation’s leaders, to guide and protect them as they deal with this spirit of political correctness and the evil force (satan) behind it.

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

We must believe that God is who he says he is, that because he is God he hears our prayers, because he hears our prayers he is faithful to answer and we must pray specifically for what we want God to do on our behalf, and in Jesus name. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
