Flash Mob, Alinsky Model?
LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss how flash mobs are nothing new. Today we see flash mobs as something that is popular where a group of people show up for a choreographed purpose. These flash mobs have existed for a long time. We see them in the book of Acts were riots would start out of nowhere seemingly taking a page out of the Alinsky book Rules for Radicals. Sad to say majority rules in America. At the same time the majority of people in America love God. We must remain awake. Dr. King believed there were more good people than bad people in America and when they saw the injustice they would respond. That was the turning point. However, you must be willing to lay everything on the line and even be ready to go to jail if need be. You just don’t want to be a person in the crowd.
God is about to Iron the Wrinkles Out of America
Greg, John, and Pat discuss how God is about to iron the wrinkles out of America. They continue to discuss Rick Joyner’s most recent prophetic bulletin and how it lines up with some of the things they have been shown. Rick discusses the four world views that are prevalent in America today. They are a Christian world view, Islamic world view, secular world view and a Marxist world view. Rick shares that outside of third great awakening we are headed toward violence in America. It’s important to look at the Word of God. Any nation that is divided will fall. Our nation was founded on Christian and Judeo values and the word of God. However, Christians are not to push their view on a land. The kingdom of God is not about a location but rather a revelation. They kingdom of God is within us we are not trying to establish it here on earth. You can’t force someone into a relationship. They continue to share how at one point they saw people pull out their guns. We are supposed to lay our lives down. We are going to go through some difficulties and God is going to have to iron out the wrinkles from America. They further discuss how the Spirit of God revealed to them that America would be under physical attack. They also saw Islamists coming against America with irons. Often times God will use people that are out of control to get His people back in control. Then He will go back and deal with them. It is time to get prepared and they encourage us to listen to “Prudent Preparation” as a way to be prepared. They also encourage us to read and study the Bible. One thing we learn about history is that people don’t learn from history and mess up again because people often have reacted with mob mentality.
Mom You’re the REAL MVP: Kevin Durant NBA – Oklahoma Thunder
Greg, John, and Pat discuss the touching speech NBA, Most Valuable Player, Keven Durant of the Oklahoma Thunders shared. His speech was so touching as often times many people forget where they have come from and take pride in their success and the blessings they have been given. In a seven minute speech Kevin spends 4:59 seconds talking about his mother. He shares about their struggle and all the wonderful things she did for him and his brother so they could make it. They continue to discuss how often times we believe the lie that what we have to say to someone is not that meaningful or significant and so we say nothing. Kevin takes time in his acceptance speech to mention how a brand new player to the team put a note in his locker that said Kevin Durant MVP after some especially difficult games. He expressed how much that meant to him. Most of all Kevin in humility continues to share how his mother is the real MVP. Greg and John both share from personal experience how remembering what people have done for them and looking back historically has helped them to enjoy the moment all the more because it just doesn’t happen. We celebrate all the moms and all they have done.
