In Response to the Texas Church Massacre—It’s Time for a New Mindset!

Wake up Christians! We’re living in a post-Christian society full of anarchists and Satanic God-hating nihilists who hate you and me. We’re sliding quickly into the heathenistic barbarism of Baalism. It’s the wild west guys! It’s time to wake up from you spiritual nap and to saddle for battle! The battle starts on your knees, but it doesn’t stop there.
In light of the recent Texas church massacre, Christians need to consider this: Yeshua told his disciples (that’s you and me) to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Instead, the churches are full of people who are oblivious to the evil serpents who want to kill and destroy them, and at the same time are still harmless as doves.
Sadly, most Christians are living in an altered reality bubble of denial about how evil the dark side really is. Too many believers are blinded by their normalcy bias and feel (emphasize the word feel—feelings are usually not based on reality ) that things aren’t as bad as they really are. This is the spiritual blindness of Laodiceanism that Yeshua talked about in the Book of Revelation chapter three. They don’t want to believe that things are as bad as they really are, and that Yeshua’s return is imminent, and that Satan is desperate to maintain control over his world no matter what and will stop at nothing before his ultimate defeats occurs. To face this reality would mean that these sleep-walking saints would have to wake up from their spiritual nap, repent of sin and get honest about their spiritual walk with Yeshua! This would mean that they would have to confront their sin of putting Yeshua on the back burner of their lives and to repent of their addictions to Facebook and other social media, as well as recognize their idolizing their electronic devices, video games, movies, sports and other mind-numbing forms of entertainment and start giving more time to the one who bought them with his blood, redeemed them from sin and demands total obedience and allegiance as a pre-condition for granting them the ultimate reward of eternal life.
Not only that, most saints get their news info from the Uncle Walter propagandistic and slanted major news outlets that tell us “that’s the way it is” and we as sheeple blindly believe them.
In reality, most of these journalistic liars typically either under-report or gloss over the depths of the evil of the dark side and its hatred for villainous desires against Bible believers. This is because these leftist news pundits are sympathetic fellow-travelers with the God-hating evil-doers. While maybe not guilty of crimes against Christians, they hate Bible believers and are guilty of murder in their hearts because their own deeds are evil. To expose the other guy would be to expose themselves for who they really are. It’s a defensive tactic of human nature to hide the truth for fear of self-exposure. At the same time Christians are oblivious to the murderous evil of the satanic-serpents who want to kill, steal and destroy, while they still naively act as harmless as doves.
All this to say that when I was pastoring, many years ago after the first several church shootings occurred, I got a concealed carry permit and always carried a firearm during church services. I saw the handwriting on the wall and refused to bury my head in the sand to the reality of the times in which we are living. How could I be so arrogantly ignorant to think that I was so special to YHVH that a church shooting couldn’t occur in my church? Look, if I’m going to be a martyr for Yeshua like nearly all the original apostles were, that’s one thing, but I refused to be a martyr because of my own naive stupidity!
Others in our congregation got their carry permits as well. I would have pitied the poor demoniac who would have tried shoot up our congregation! At the same time, we kept the doors of the church locked while services were occurring and kept a security guard at the door, while, at the same time, covering our congregation with spiritual warfare prayers as our first and most important line of defense.
Wake up America, wake up pastors, wake up Christians, this is 2017, not 1957! Pastors need to start acting like shepherds and start protecting their flock instead of leaving their trusting sheeple vulnerable like sitting ducks!
Our first and most important defense is spiritual warfare and the blood of Yeshua. After that, well…you connect the dots! We must do your part.
Most of you have locks on your doors, wear seat belts while driving, carry a spare tire in your car, have a first aid kit, smoke detectors in your home and have insurance to protect yourselves from everything, but when it comes to protecting yourselves in church, we’ve become naive and trusting ignoramuses who are living in the mental bubble of a past reality!
It’s time to grow up America! We’re not living in the 1950s anymore. It’s time for the sleeping church to wake up! Pastors: It’s time to start acting like shepherds who really protect the sheep both physically and spiritually instead of acting like the hirelings most of you really are!

  1. Psalm 37
    1 Do not fret because of evildoers,
    Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
    2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
    And wither as the green herb.
    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
    4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
    And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
    5 Commit your way to the Lord,
    Trust also in Him,
    And He shall bring it to pass.
    6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
    And your justice as the noonday.
    7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
    Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
    Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
    8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
    Do not fret—it only causes harm.
    9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
    But those who wait on the Lord,
    They shall inherit the earth.
    10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
    Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
    But it shall be no more.
    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
    And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
    12 The wicked plots against the just,
    And gnashes at him with his teeth.
    13 The Lord laughs at him,
    For He sees that his day is coming.
    14 The wicked have drawn the sword
    And have bent their bow,
    To cast down the poor and needy,
    To slay those who are of upright conduct.
    15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,
    And their bows shall be broken….Praise YHVH!!!!!!!!!

  2. This reminds me……..there are actually some cities that still have laws on the books requiring that you be armed when attending church!! The laws are old and are not enforced, but are still on the books. Evil was and still is and will be until……………:<) Baruch Hashem for the "until" part!!!

  3. Father forgive our ignorance and complacency. I pray you be with the families of those who are lost in life and in spirit.

    “Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.””
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭22:36-37‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Imagine if you will a scenario where we are literally taken back to the wild West. As Natan Has stated. We are only an EMT away. Then imagine that the focus is turned against us because people are blaming YHVH. Even though in the old west, there was a fear of the Lord that is nonexistent today.

    This puts us in the last sentence of Luke 22:36 and 37. The end.

    Well, outside of the EMT. This incident shows that we are already there and that people are blaming us. The Christian church has a bull’s-eye right on it.

    It’s just another example of how we should be teaching our people to prepare. For the Sabbath, for the feasts and literally the food we eat.
    It seems that the shepherds need to prepare the people against the attacks of the enemy in the physical as well. Urging people to be alert is not living in fear, it’s being prepared to secure the house of Yah. Even the temple had guards.
    As Natan said, along with insuring our automobiles and our health, we should ensuring our safety.
    Yes it is our father who goes with us into battle. He has the victory.
    This is just another example of what happens when we assume Jesus does IT ALL. We assume that he will protect us from physical harm and that there is no need for us to even have to defend ourselves. All we have to do is read the writings. When Isreal went into battle.
    They were prepared. And YHVH gave them the victories. That’s assuming you still give credit to the Torah and writing’s as valid today.

    I’m so glad that father has woke me up to the fact that I am unprepared. This wakes me up.
    Father has brought me back to the love I had when I was a child of knowing my surroundings, knowing how to survive and enjoying The art of bush craft and self-defense. I’m in the process now of gathering everything I would need for my family to take care of itself and defend.

    It’s the Torah that taught me how to prepare. That’s why I believe the word says that the Torah brings us life. I also appreciate shepherds like Natan Who are willing to share their knowledge and pass it on to brothers and sisters who may not of had a father or a brother to show them these things. As well as blowing the shofar horn, in a call to defend. Are we not called to defend our faith?
    “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;”
    ‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭4:1-3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “For the LORD will not cast off His people, Nor will He forsake His inheritance. But judgment will return to righteousness, And all the upright in heart will follow it. Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭94:14-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    I for one will be encouraging everyone I know in leadership to be prepared to defend the flock.That’s what I’m doing about it.

  4. A gun toting preacher…fantastic! Here in the UK the Anglican church has started blessing same sex marriage, so I dont think you would be welcome in their ” church “…
