7 In that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, “Ask what I shall give you.” 8 And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place. 9 O Lord God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. 10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?”
11 God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king, 12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like.” 13 So Solomon came from the high place at Gibeon, from before the tent of meeting, to Jerusalem. And he reigned over Israel.
2 Chronicles 1:7-11
29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, 30 so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt. 31 For he was wiser than all other men.”
1 Kings 4:29-31
34 And people of all nations came to hear the wisdom of Solomon and from all the kings of the earth, who had heard of his wisdom.
1 Kings 4:34
13 “With God are wisdom and might; he has counsel and understanding.”
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever!”
1 “The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:
2 To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight,
3 to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity;
4 to give prudence to the simple,
knowledge and discretion to the youth—
5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance,
6 to understand a proverb and a saying,
the words of the wise and their riddles.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
20 “Wisdom cries aloud in the street,
in the markets she raises her voice;
21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
22 “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
and fools hate knowledge?
23 If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused to listen,
have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25 because you have ignored all my counsel
and would have none of my reproof,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
and did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 would have none of my counsel
and despised all my reproof,
31 therefore, they shall eat the fruit of their way,
and have their fill of their own devices.
32 For the simple are killed by their turning away,
and the complacency of fools destroys them;
33 but whoever listens to me will dwell secure
and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”
1 “My son, if you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you,
2 making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding;
3 yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice for understanding,
4 if you seek it like silver
and search for it as for hidden treasures,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
7 he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
8 guarding the paths of justice
and watching over the way of his saints.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice
and equity, every good path;
10 for wisdom will come into your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
11 discretion will watch over you,
understanding will guard you,
12 delivering you from the way of evil,
from men of perverted speech,
13 who forsake the paths of uprightness
to walk in the ways of darkness,
14 who rejoice in doing evil
and delight in the perverseness of evil,
15 men whose paths are crooked,
and who are devious in their ways.
16 So you will be delivered from the forbidden woman,
from the adulteress with her smooth words,
17 who forsakes the companion of her youth
and forgets the covenant of her God;
18 for her house sinks down to death,
and her paths to the departed;
19 none who go to her come back,
nor do they regain the paths of life.
20 So you will walk in the way of the good
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will inhabit the land,
and those with integrity will remain in it,
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,
and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.”
1 “My son, do not forget my teaching,
but let your heart keep my commandments,
2 for length of days and years of life
and peace they will add to you.
3 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
7 Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
8 It will be healing to your flesh
and refreshment to your bones.
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth
and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
and your vats will be bursting with wine.
11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
as a father the son in whom he delights.”
13 “Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
and the one who gets understanding,
14 for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
19 The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
by understanding he established the heavens;
20 by his knowledge the deeps broke open,
and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, do not lose sight of these—
keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 and they will be life for your soul
and adornment for your neck.
23 Then you will walk on your way securely,
and your foot will not stumble.
24 If you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
26 for the Lord will be your confidence
and will keep your foot from being caught.
27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
when it is in your power to do it.
28 Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,
tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.
29 Do not plan evil against your neighbor,
who dwells trustingly beside you.
30 Do not contend with a man for no reason,
when he has done you no harm.
31 Do not envy a man of violence
and do not choose any of his ways,
32 for the devious person is an abomination to the Lord,
but the upright are in his confidence.
33 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
34 Toward the scorners he is scornful,
but to the humble he gives favor.
35 The wise will inherit honor,
but fools get disgrace.”
1 “Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction,
and be attentive, that you may gain insight,
2 for I give you good precepts;
do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father,
tender, the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 he taught me and said to me,
“Let your heart hold fast my words;
keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight;
do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
and whatever you get, get insight.
8 Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
she will honor you if you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head a graceful garland;
she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.”
10 Hear, my son, and accept my words,
that the years of your life may be many.
11 I have taught you the way of wisdom;
I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
12 When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
and if you run, you will not stumble.
13 Keep hold of instruction; do not let go;
guard her, for she is your life.
14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of the evil.
15 Avoid it; do not go on it;
turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong;
they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know over what they stumble.
20 My son, be attentive to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Let them not escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them,
and healing to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
24 Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
25 Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.”

“Our country may be likened to a new house. We lack many things, but we possess the most precious of all – liberty!”
“There is a price tag on human liberty. That price is the willingness to assume the responsibilities of being free men. Payment of this price is a personal matter with each of us.”
“Having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information or fuller consideration to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise.”

God established the family, the church, and the state. The Communists Manifesto seeks to destroy family, and the church, and give power to the state.
America was founded on the concept of individualism. The purpose of the state was to protect and not rule over the people. The American government was created to be the servant and not the master of this nation.
Paradigm = A framework with which you interpret evidence.
Science isn`t just about evidence but how you interpret the evidence.
What we are seeing now with gender identity has nothing to do with reality, facts, or science but rather a self-serving ideology of sin that ignores God and truth. It is shameful that we would tolerate anyone teaching vulnerable and impressionable children that they can pick what sex they are.
This is what the result of removing God from a government and nation looks like. Morally, things are declining at a rapid pace which all have consequences and leave behind a trail of heartache and destruction. Teaching children that all sex is fine is like throwing them into a pit of poisonous snakes and telling them to have fun.
We have a bunch of confused adults teaching children dangerous lies and misinformation and it needs to stop yesterday!
Evolution = change over time
Evolution = no one times nothing equals everything
Evolution = is a lie
Fascism was a term that originated with Mussolini (now there is a great role model) and means a merger of the state and corporate sectors to achieve a level of uniformity.
And who do you suppose determines what that uniformity looks like for the average person?
The federal government gives special protection to Social Media and at the same time allows social media to violate your constitutional rights through censorship and discrimination as well as intentionally spreading false information and withholding the truth.
They have become a political weapon of mass deception for the far-left democratic party.
Our government is supposed to serve and protect us yet is siding with and protecting the private sector when it lines us with their ideology or personal gains.
We have a massive bureaucracy that has been created in America and who are not accountable to the people.
These non-elected people are given the power to create more laws and rules than congress.
Ruling through executive orders and mandates sounds a lot like Hitler to me.
Now that we have a lost culture that is being led by the most radical and extreme views ( which are both hypocritical and evil ) we are reaping the rewards. Violent and planned attacks in society from very young children are becoming more common. What did people expect the results to be from teaching generations that they are nothing more than animals accountable to no one?
They are no more than some fluke cosmic accident and need to ignore all the evidence which loudly declares that God is.
We have removed all of the protection for young children and they are exposed. Kids can see all, hear all, and experience all with the internet which seems to have replaced the family in the raising of our youth.
If you and I will not comply then they will have to indoctrinate our children in schools through sex education, critical race theory, re-writing history, and evolution. Remove God, prayer, and common sense, and replace them with the failed and wicked ideology of Karl Marx.
Collectivism = A broad group of ideologies that includes Left Wing, Liberalism, Natzism, Marxism, Fascism, Socialism, and Communism. Each of these would be like different flavors of ice cream but still ice cream. So think of these as different versions the Collectivism where the State is all-important. With each of these ideologies, the individual must be sacrificed for the greater good and for the more significant number as determined by the state.
The end game is total control of the population from birth to death. The state is not the protector but the master of the people.
Socialism grants the government the authority to make most economic decisions and choose how to allocate scarce government resources based on what it determines to be most useful to society as a whole.
The collectives will continue to create crises by attacking everything and anything good in society and government. They will use anyone, anything, and any opportunity to grab more power and control.
That is why Covid became a “pandemic” where masks, social distancing, and lockdowns all were used as means of controlling and resetting society. When those failed they used the vaccines to try and force everyone to “do as I say” not as I do.
They used private companies as well as the federal government to force people to comply or lose their jobs.
Freedom cannot exist where the people have become ignorant, passive, and immoral.
When we think about sports we think about something fun, healthy, and entertaining for the most part and we would prefer not to think about much else when participating in or watching them.
But now these have become politicized and fully support the party of the collective and radical anti-Christian values and movements.
I mean, if you wanted the world to know then put an advertisement on the pitchers’ mound supporting a Marxist Group of Radical extreme terrorists who pushes for special rights for black female lesbians, destroying the family unit, lawlessness, rioting, looting, defunding and attacking police, and dismantling of our entire society. Because after all, everything is racist except for them. Yeah, put that puppy right there on the mound so with every pitch we can embrace this massively deceptive and corrupt organization called BLM.
MLB, NBA, AND NFL = ARE FULLY WOKE AND USED BY EXTREME RADICALS AS PLATFORMS TO PUSH THEIR SINFUL IDEOLOGY.

THE WORD UNIVERSITY MEANS UNITY IN DIVERSITY – SO WHAT HAPPENED? NOW THEY WANT UNITY THROUGH INDOCTRINATION AND HAVE NO TOLERANCE FOR ANY DEBATE OR CHALLENGE TO THEIR ABSOLUTE HIJACKING OF TRUTH.
Bezmenov – Russian propagandist who laid out in detail
the process by which a free society, such as America
could be brought to its knees and collapse. In 1984 he laid out the four stages of collapsing a free society.
1- demoralization – control schools with leftist thought and a new set
of values in complete opposition to those of freedom and democracy
2- destabilization– decline in the structure of society- economy, military,
3- crisis – major event which works together with and builds off of the first
two. ( manufacture crisis – just like they are doing with coronavirus, open borders
and supporting defunding our police, and encouraging the continued
burning and looting of our nation’s cities) make more sense now?
4-normalization– repeat, repeat, and repeat.
Former Soviet Union leader Nikita Khrushchev who led the country
from 1958 to 1964 predicted America would be destroyed internally.
He claimed America could fall without firing a single shot.
And today we can see exactly what he meant.
Rationality is built on cause and effect.
Reason is the ability to link things together.
God has put moral law into the human heart.
We can look at creation and know that God exists.
