Welcome back Christian Freedom Fighters! Together, we are learning how to occupy till Jesus comes! (If that is a foreign concept to you, check out Jesus’ Command to Believers: “Occupy Till I Come.”) The challenges of today for Christians and conservatives should not come as a surprise, as the Bible tells us the last days will be characterized by difficult times. Perhaps we just didn’t expect those things to be driven so aggressively by our government!
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power; avoid such people as these.~2 Timothy 3:1-5
That is an accurate description of the increasingly godless society in which we live. There is growing concern that America is sliding off the Judeo-Christian foundation upon which our great nation was originally anchored. So, the attempt here is to learn how to reclaim lost values and fight for the rights bestowed upon every citizen, not by the government, but by Almighty God.
Well, I’ve got good news for you! Charlie Kirk, an intelligent and incredibly talented young leader the Lord has raised up “for such a time as this,” is on a mission to mobilize believers and people of moral character to take our country back. We may or may not be successful in totally “taking it back,” but fighting for it is in line with Jesus’ instruction to occupy till He comes!
To that end, Charlie’s organization, Turning Point USA, just launched Freedom Square, a monthly gathering here in Phoenix (and soon to be in other locations) to educate and motivate conservatives in ways to stand against the liberal onslaught of socialist ideology. I encourage you to explore the resources of Turning Point USA and Freedom Square. The next Freedom Square event in Phoenix is June 8 at 6pm (Dream City Church).
I was blessed to be in attendance at the first Freedom Square event last Tuesday evening and it was a successful launch! Here is the video. Charlie is introduced at the 47:30 mark. I’ll share some follow up info from this event tomorrow, but meanwhile, enjoy!
