Ungodly opposition brings mightier blessing…the fall of the gods!

‘Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.” (1 Samuel 17, NKJV BibleGateway.com)
‘And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?” 14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the Army of the Lord I have now come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?” 15 Then the Commander of the Lord’s army said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy.” And Joshua did so.’ (Joshua 5)

Trust I’m not being too boring when mentioning (yet again) the principle of being blessed when under ‘duress’ of insistent and persistent arguments claiming to prove I’m wrong! Last time was 3 weeks ago over the triple-postings on “Brace yourself!” for the Lord’s soon return and manifestation of His Glory. More often than not it’s on my Farcebk.

But, as previously, I’m recompensed by rapid confirmation of the rectitude of what I’m blogging and, therefore, of my protagonist’s inaccuracy, and perhaps their deliberate lying.

Plus, this time’s blessing’s even MORE AWESOME!

Late on Monday I noticed that Joe Hoft, co-founder of The Gateway Pundit, had written a explanation about why many highly influential groups don’t want a proper, full audit of every ballot in last November’s presidential voting in Arizona’s Maricopa county. As dinner was about to be served I copy-pasted its headlines and provided only a link to Reminder: When People Don’t Want An Audit, They Are Hiding Something.

The next day, I added Joe’s observations on five tactical objections to thwart the audit and which were refused. Also, I added them to the copy of that blog I’d shared on John Barber’s Farcebk.

However, I espied therein a vociferous, politically anti-Trump person launched accusations on that posting against Hoft and I pointed out his objecting to a post reporting on suspiciously criminal activities implies he supports injustice! My remarks got ignored in his litany of questionable activities of Hoft, which is more or less an ad-hominem attack. But that accuser’s opinion on that election has already proven to be mistaken!

So I sought the Lord on how I should reply – or not – and I handed the issue over to Him.

AND then came the Elijah Streams video of Barry Wunsch for which I set aside yesterday’s lunch-time to listen and got thoroughly blessed with reference to an insight of 10 years ago (see previous). AND AGAIN upon revisiting it’s greatly blessed me, SO this morning I added this to my Facebook:

“I’m now listening again to the last 10 mins about the prophecy for the official close to DJT, to ensure that I understand what he’s bringing, rather than my mind getting in the way of thinking it may be relevant to 10 years-old person insight beyond the Bible’s back-cover.
“Also, EVERY time I hear Barry saying “this (battle) IS BIGGER than (that of) the Valkyries!” I keep getting tingles all over by back as its truth strikes me too!”

Now today’s not been my usual blogging day because I collected a friend from hospital and took him home and told him about that video. As we arrived there, I was recounting that last reaction BUT proclaimed it means “the fall of the gods!”

Barry may have had the modern film ‘Apocalypse Now’ in mind, but I was thinking of Richard Wagner’s operatic cycle based upon Norse legends, the Ring of the Nibelung, and its final part Gotterdamerung, ‘Twilight of the Gods’.

Driving away from my friend’s house I turned the radio on, only to hear Classic FM’s announcer say the piece that had just played was “The Ride of the Valkyries” !!!!

Therefore, I guess I’m getting a glimpse of what Barry was getting so inspired and sparked by Holy Spirit when telling what he’d heard from the Lord and on what He’s doing…!!!

“..bottom line…It’s NOT over, it’s NOT OVER!”

  1. Hello Richard,

    You may be interested to know that today’s liturgy (Anglican) happens to echo a lot of this. I do an online evening prayer thing for my church every Thursday, and experienced that ‘nudge’ to say – pay attention, these readings are particularly significant this week. Perhaps I can just give you a few bits:

    Psalm 82.
    “You were to judge the weak and the orphan, defend the right of the humble and needy, rescue the weak and the poor, deliver them from the hand of the wicked. They have no knowledge or wisdom; they walk on still in darkness. … Therefore I say that, though you are gods, and all of you children of the Most High, nevertheless you shall die like mortals.” I must say I actually felt God saying that this applies somewhat to the church at the moment, but it can also, I think, apply to the “gods” you are talking about in government and public life.

    Malachi 4
    “The day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble …” etc. etc.

    Revelation 22
    “Behold, I am coming soon,” says the Lord … etc.

    And finally, quite a fierce Collect – I often find the Collect to be rather anodyne and platitudinous, but this one made me think of what you say about finding blessing while being attacked:

    “Lead us … after [John the Baptist’s] example, constantly to speak the truth, boldly to rebuke vice and patiently to suffer for the truth’s sake”

    Anyway, I thought some of that was an interesting coincidence. I hope it brings you some encouragement!
