Bill of Rights Day approaches
Quite often we at JPFO get a letter or phone call or email from someone who really wants to "do something to help". We welcome these queries. Thank you.
However, JPFO has so much "intellectual ammunition" available in the fight against "gun control"that our answer is quite often: "Just use our tools!"
Bill of Rights Day is December 15th. Each of you can make at least one other person aware of the day, and of how essential the Bill of Rights has been to American freedom. How controversial can it be to give a neighbor a "Gran’pa Jack #3" comic book about the Bill of Rights? Will you be labeled a kook … or a "gun nut". Most likely not.
Most people simply do not understand that the Second Amendment is the "Guardian" of the Bill of Rights. The way to reach these folk is to:
1. Remind them of what our Bill of Rights actually says … and is meant to do. Visit the JPFO BoR index page, and find many related items.
2. Gently point out that we are rapidly loosing our foundational rights.
3. Calmly and somberly remind them that, G-d forbid, the day may come when we have to physically stand up to a tyrannical government in America. Hence the Second Amendment.
This third point is not new with the "Patriot" or "Militia" movement. We were being warned of it from the very founding of this nation!
14 Now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 15 And the Jews marveled, saying, "How does this Man know letters, having never studied?" 16 Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. 17 If anyone wants to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and unrighteousness is in Him."
This is a verse I was "given" literally "popped" into my head. And there are many more that I have received.
Why? I am trying to figure that out.
Is it Prophesy? Yes I believe one can give and receive Prophetic Words..I also believe I can give a Prophetic Word to others and have.
But again, why am I receiving these?
Is it prophecy? Is it for me? Is it to share? Such as a Bible study?
This verse tells me Jesus "taught" God’s word. Or was it God teaching through Jesus?
If he was unschooled and supposedly had never studied how could he teach? As Jesus answered: "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me." So when we speak how do we know if we speak God’s word or our own?
Do we seek to be "recognized"? Or do we speak from the heart and with God’s, not our own authority? Does it elevate Him? Or us?
But Jesus was sent to teach and to take our sin away by sacrifice. His sacrifice, dying on the Cross so we could be forgiven.
We are to spread the Word of God. Not by sword and violence. Not by forcing it upon others. But by finding those whom are open to listening, to seeking, to believing..
Only by reaching out and offering ourselves, by stepping out, by risking and sacrificing, knowing we face ridicule and harassment, attacks both verbal and physical.
But we must step out. Spread his Word…
"Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20
So we are to spread the Word. Face the demons and those against us. To convert those that want to be converted, want to hear about God and his love for all of us…
So I am stepping out and will continue to post what I have received and my thoughts and whys…
To be continued…
