Having a Wartime Mentality

This weekend I watched/listened to two videos…both emphasize that we are in a “wartime” situation.

The first is a sermon by Mike Riches at Harborview Fellowship in Gig Harbor, Washington. See here for some background about Harborview Fellowship with regard to pushing back against restrictions imposed on churches during the Covid lockdowns. The sermon centers on Nehemiah 4: 1) understanding the enemy’s schemes; and 2) how godly men and women come up against those schemes.  The sermon begins at the 54 minute mark:  https://harborviewfellowship.org/videos?sapurl=LytoNDQ5L2xiL21pLytoand2NWJyP2JyYW5kaW5nPXRydWUmZW1iZWQ9dHJ1ZSZyZWNlbnRSb3V0ZT1hcHAud2ViLWFwcC5saWJyYXJ5Lm1lZGlhLXNlcmllcyZyZWNlbnRSb3V0ZVNsdWc9JTJCM21iMmg3Yg==

The second is an interview of Catherine Austin Fitts on Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog. Both Fitts and Hunter are Christians. Fitts says ““At some point, you have to realize we are in a war. We have an enemy. We have the power to win, but we are going to have to fight. If you look at our ancestors in the last 10,000 years, I dare say we have it in us. Let’s get out of fear and get into fighting mode. There are two roads. We can preserve, rebuild and protect the human civilization, or we can become slaves.” https://usawatchdog.com/its-not-a-turndown-its-a-takedown-catherine-austin-fitts/

I hope both videos are helpful. And to all the fathers, Happy Father’s Day!
