The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Born Again

By Chip Murray   April 1, 2018

Spiritually we never grow old; through the passing of the years we grow so many years young. The characteristic of the spiritual life is its unaging youth, exactly the opposite of the natural life. “I am…the First and the Last.” The Ancient of Days represents the Eternal Childhood. God Almighty became the weakest thing in His own creation, a Baby. When He comes into us in new birth we can easily kill His life in us, or else we can see to it that His life is nourished according to the dictates of the Spirit of God so that we grow “to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” The mature saint is just like a little child, absolutely simple and joyful and gay. Go on living the life that God would have you live and you will grow younger instead of older. There is a marvelous rejuvenescence when once you let God have His way. If you are feeling very old, then get born again and do more at it. ~ Oswald Chambers, Unaging Youth

In Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ, he captures the powerful and glorious victory on Calvary quite brilliantly. As Jesus Christ has finished His mission, taking on the weight of all unto the last of our sins upon Himself and commending His spirit, the camera becomes the single tear drop from the Father falling onto the work of his Son…and finally contrasting the spectacular light of Easter with the dark torment and pure anguish of the devil in his darkest hour.

So, this past week we witnessed three very interesting confessions from three very prominent Catholics. We have the two in New York; one who sadly acknowledges the “abandoning” of Catholics by the Democratic Party, and the other who proves his point by moving to expand the Murder of Innocents. And a third in Rome, who says of those who murder the innocents, “They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”

I don’t know about you, but I grew older reading words that read like the epitaph of humanity itself; the death of love…the death of the human soul. Look about you dear friend and tell me, what do you see? Look at the faces and into the eyes of we the people in our off-guard moments of quietude, the spaces between the burden of keeping-up-appearances we all slosh through. I see, in the New Jersey business complex of office spaces where I work, people aging before their time. From the outward appearance…the drained expressions and sluggish body language of the followers of the lie, to the ghoulish features and characteristics of the leaders of the lie. Study the portraits of the top Progressives alongside their Conservative counterparts and you will find my point very hard to argue. President Donald Trump is aglow with youthful energy and enthusiasm. Hillary Clinton, barely able to bathe herself, is being held together by a team of doctors, pharmacists, and (reportedly) a steady flow of alcohol and medications. The “Moral of the Story”? Lying (sin) kills the body slowly, day by day, piece by piece.

Oaths are made to God. There was a time when there were more Oath Keepers than Oath Breakers…we were so much younger then, we are older for that now. The founder of Oath Keepers just seconds ago texted me, “Easter is a good day for personal renewal and hope.” When enough of us realize the truth in his words, turn away from those telling and selling the things we want to hear, and begin living with purpose for the light, love, and truth of life…we will be young again as a blessed part of the great raising. Trust me when I tell you, it beats the Hell out of the alternative. Please join us in Body and Soul.

Wishing you and yours, a glorious Easter Sunday…bask in the smiles of your children.

And because Jesus is risen, there will be another resurrection when he returns at the end of the story—the first securing the second—the great raising of all humanity for the final chapter, the final resolution—where all brokenness is repaired, all evil is vanquished, and all beauty is restored. ~ Gregory Koukl, The Story of Reality

From Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers: “Today is the celebration of Christ’s love for us and his triumph over death. Let it be a day for personal renewal, forgiveness, hope and joy.  Be renewed and go forth with love and joy. Remember, duty is ours, results are God’s.”


From KB, Oath Keeper:  “When I think about the day, this day, and the importance of it, it brings me to me knees. To know that I/we were picked & loved, in advance of our birth, and a price paid for sins & lives is overwhelming. It is this love that forges us together in that we know life is short, and even though we are not sure what awaits us tomorrow, we have faith in this hope that one day we will all be united before the throne of our God. Even though we may be despised and hated for our beliefs by those whose minds have been pickled by the evil, prince of darkness, we can always relate to, and take hope in, the fact that our Lord died so we may live (eternally). Blessed be the name of the Lord! Happy Redemption day my brothers and sisters!”

In His service,
KB

  1. Today is actually Astarte Day, a day for the worship of the Goddess that the Christian church has tried, and failed, to steal. Personally, my Oath is to the Goddess who birthed all of Creation. You, on the other hand, are welcome to believe whatever you will.

    1. You talk about the Christian church as a thief…you write, ” Now there are laws passed by fundamentalist Christians in the US Congress about what can be sold to US citizens according to age even though they can vote, drink alcoholic beverages, and be sent to fight and die in the white governments empire building wars in the oil producing nations around the Middle East.” So fundamentalist Christians are running Congress are they? My guess is that you are probably a Bernie guy…but you too are free to believe, vote and worship as your heart leads you…thanks to the Constitutional Rights you seemed to skip over.

      1. Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. ~ John 4:1-6 He won’t be back Charlie…

        1. Chip,
          I am a Christian, bought by the blood.Brother I did not have any idea what the Dr. was talking about and in truth I wanted him to tell me. I don’t know maybe to find the error so I might be able to win one. I don’t want the Dr. to perish. God doesn’t either.
          Sincerely CB

  2. The Godess who birthed all Creation? Where’s your proof. The proof of Jesus’s life, death and resurrection is well established in historical texts, dating to the first generation after He died.
    This was THE BEST Oathkeepers newsletter, ever!

  3. Wonderful article! The Joy and expressions of Joy on Easter from Oath Keepers across the country are a true testament to focus of our lives mission. The stone has been rolled back on the tomb so we can see it is empty, so we can enter and know God though Christ.

  4. I especially appreciate the expressions of the heart from Stewart and KB at the end of the piece. This is who we are. This is why I am here and always will be.
