Independence Day Reflections

As July Fourth fades into July fifth, and the rockets’ red glare ceases to illuminate the night sky, I sit on my bed pondering about this great land of America and the challenges we face. My heart is somber. I feel like I want a cosmic megaphone so I can shout to the whole world and warn them of the fate they are rushing towards – to alert them to the trap that has been laid for them by humanity’s enemies. As we wave our flags, sing patriotic songs, and boast of our Freedom, I fear that we lose sight of the seriousness of our present situation.

It appears that we are fulfilling in every particular the old scriptural warnings against complacency, naïveté, and ignorance. In one place we are told: “Woe to them that are at ease in Zion” (Amos 6:1). And in another ancient holy book, we are similarly warned:

“And others will [Satan] pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.

“And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears, until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance” (2 Nephi 28:21).

I see so many conservatives applauding what they think are improving conditions under President Trump. The economy appears to be a booming. Unemployment numbers seem to be dropping. Some taxes have been cut. President Trump has slashed some of the myriad of bureaucratic regulations that entangle us. We are pumping and exporting more oil than ever before. We are extending the hand of diplomacy and friendship to belligerent nations like North Korea. We are making “deals” with everyone. And so forth. In all these things, conservatives believe they see the winds of change – a revolution in favor of sound government, national stability, and personal Freedom.

Yet, I must question whether any of these are indicators of true change and betterment. We have been so indoctrinated with Marxism that we see everything in terms of economics and materialism. If the economy appears stable, we think things are peachy. If unemployment drops, we think the government is doing wonderful. If a small tax cut puts a few extra dollars in our bank accounts, we assume everything is on track.

America60

But what of our spiritual health and cultural well-being? Is church attendance on the rise? Is faith in Jesus Christ increasing? Are we following the Ten Commandments as a People? Are our families stronger? Are more marriages weathering the storms of life and resisting the Siren song of easy and “no-fault” divorce? Have we done away with the barbaric practice of slaughtering our newborns? Are we having large families again like our forefathers? Are we less sex-obsessed than before? Are people obeying the Lord’s law of chastity and abstaining from sex before marriage and remaining faithful in marriage? Is entertainment abandoning the trend of throwing profanity and lewdness into everything?

And how are our social relations? Are we less divided than before? Do we agree and unite on more issues than before? Do we ignore superficial issues like race and gender, or are we obsessed with them? Do we heed the ludicrous demands of political correctness or ignore them? Do we go along with Marxist hate speech legislation or cherish free speech and expression? Are our public demonstrations peaceful or more violent and heated? Are mobs and mob mentality increasing or decreasing? Is our social media interaction friendlier than it was in the past or worse?

And legally speaking, are things on the upswing? Is the Constitution followed more often now or less? Is the First Amendment under attack or defended? Is the Second Amendment under assault or held inviolate? How are privacy rights doing – or is there such thing as privacy these days? Do we have more or fewer police swarming our streets? Are we emptying or filling our prisons?

communism221

Folks, I could keep asking leading questions all day, but let me get to my point. Although the economy, on the surface, appears to be in a moment of upsurge (our $22 Trillion in debt, the existence of the parasitical Federal Reserve, and numerous other factors belie the claim of a booming economy), other indicators are blaring a “RED ALERT!” warning signal. The three great standards and institutions of any nation – Faith, Families, and Freedom – are all suffering massively. In fact, each is imploding before our eyes.

What good is a so-called “booming” economy when our Faith in the Savior gives way to pagan beliefs and reprobate behavior? How does a small tax cut assist us when our Families are decreasing in size, decreasing in effectiveness, and disintegrating altogether? What good is it to be a net exporter of oil when our Freedom is consumed by collectivist attitudes, Marxist-style Social Justice laws, and open calls for socialism by presidential candidates and the crowds who back them?

America is more divided than ever before. And the segment of the population who wants to drive the wedge even further and break us apart as a nation is succeeding largely because those of us who truly care and who ought to know better are ignoring the real problems. The honorable Ezra Taft Benson warned:

“If American freedom is lost, if America is destroyed, if our blood-bought freedom is surrendered, it will be because of Americans. What’s more, it will probably not be only the work of subversive and criminal Americans. The Benedict Arnolds will not be the only ones to forfeit our freedom. . . .

“If America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute the flag, sing the national anthem, march in patriotic parades, cheer Fourth of July speakers—normally good Americans, but Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free—Americans who have been lulled away into a false security” (President Ezra Taft Benson, “Americans Are Destroying America,” Conference Report, April, 1968).

Is this what is happening? Are good, seemingly patriotic Americans responsible for the cultural destruction we see around us because they have been apathetic, naïve, and ignorant? I submit that this is precisely the case. There will always be subversives who want to overthrow the established government and set up a self-serving system with themselves in charge. However, this criminal element can only succeed when the population as a whole turns a blind eye and allows them to. We have for generations been so obsessed with bread and circuses that we allowed the communist cancer to spread to every community in the Union. We’ve slept while Rome burned. We’ve sold our Liberty for a mess of pottage!

Ezra Taft Benson delivered another powerful warning that should’ve been heeded decades ago:

“For a quarter of a century I have seen, at close range, the insidious forward march of creeping socialism and its ruthless companion godless communism. It is a shocking record of bluff, bluster, deception, intrigue, bondage, and mass murder. Never in recorded history has any movement spread itself so far and so fast as has socialistic-communism in the past few years. The facts are not pleasant to review. Communist leaders are jubilant with their success. They are driving freedom back on almost every front. . . .

“I say to you with all the fervor of my soul: We are sowing the seeds of our own destruction in America and much of the free world today. It is my sober warning to you today that if the trends of the past thirty years – and especially the past three years – continue, we will lose that which is as priceless as life itself – our freedom – our liberty – our right to act as free men. It can happen here. It is happening here.

“Our greatest need in America today is to be alerted and informed” (Ezra Taft Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963).

The seeds of destruction that were sewn decades ago are being harvested now before our eyes. Our enemies are “jubilant with their success.” Our level of healthy religion and morality – the pillars of free society – is declining. Our families are falling apart. Freedom is being pushed back “on almost every front.” And what do we do in the face of this awful situation? We cheer and celebrate, wave our flags and shoot off our fireworks, and believe that President Trump will save us!

media11

Instead, we need to become “alerted and informed.” We need to comprehend that there exists an international Satanic cabal which seek to obliterate our Liberty and consolidate the United States into a Marxist world order. We need to understand that communism never died, the USSR faked its “collapse,” and the West lost the Cold War. We need to admit that we have not done enough for to save our Republic – that it is our fault for allowing this clique of gangsters to abuse us for all these many years. We need to wake up and heed the warnings of men who have been awake all this time and who have screamed themselves hoarse trying to alert and save their country.

After this Independence Day, will anything change? Are our hearts stirring with emotion for our lost Liberty? Are we pricked with the terrible realization that all is not well in Zion? Will we push forward with more vigor for the restoration of our land to its godly roots? Will we work harder to preserve and replenish our Faith, Families, and Freedom? Will anything change at all? Or is July Fourth it just another day? Was it just another holiday – an excuse to BBQ, take the day off, and blow off some fireworks? Only you can decide what this day meant for you and what you will do from here on out.

From where I sit, it is not “morning in America.” But there should be mourning in America. The blast of the fireworks last night should have reverberated in our souls. We should feel the urgency which our situation presents. We should feel stirred to action in defense of our smoldering homeland. We should feel a greater determination to push back the communists who have gained so much ground that they are openly parading with hammer and sickle flags, burning Old Glory in D.C., beating people to within an inch of their lives in violent public demonstration while the police do nothing, and relishing the notion that one of their chosen candidates will likely be the Democratic Party nominee for president in 2020.

communism228

My fellow Americans, we are losing this war. We are losing. Donald Trump is president, yet we are losing. So-called conservatives have a majority on the Supreme Court, yet we are losing. Republicans control the Senate, yet we are losing. Our culture is sinking under the weight of hedonism and selfishness. Public schools are little more than communist indoctrination centers. Even public libraries, those places that gave me so many hours of joy as a child, are scenes of debauchery and indoctrination. Yes, Christian constitutionalists are being pushed back on almost every front.

If I sound overly pessimistic, it is because I am. We are losing the war and the casualties are mounting. I know we will win the war in the end, but at what cost? How much will we lose along the way? How many of our friends and family members will fall in this struggle? How many more good people will have their lives, careers, and reputations destroyed because of the cowardice of their neighbors to defend their rights against oppression? How many more children will be stolen from good homes because of the political or religious views of their parents? How much more lewdness and depravity must we be forced to witness? How much more suffering must we endure before we wake up and thrash the enemy who feeds off of our pain like the American Indian god Okee?

As wonderful and fun as it is to watch fireworks, have BBQs, wear patriotic apparel, and read The Declaration of Independence with my family, I can’t help but mourn for my country. America is on fire. And if my home is burning, will I remain silent? If my family is in danger, will I remain inactive? If I’m on the verge of losing everything I love, will I shout, “USA! USA! USA!” or say “All is well”? No! And if you are a patriot, you must not fall into this fatal trap of complacency and inattention!

Now is the time to wake up. Now is the time to become informed. Now is the time to study the Constitution as well as the tactics of the communist enemy. Now is the time to educate your family and neighbors. Now is the time to act in behalf of your country. Now is the time!

America39

I love America! America is the greatest nation on earth! We are the most blessed People in history. This is a special land – a Promised Land. It is a land reserved by God for humble, righteous People. It is the Lord’s base of operations in these last days. America must be defended!

I pledge my life to the restoration of the Republic, the defense of our God-inspired Constitution, and to the maintenance of the principles of Liberty and rule of law. I pledge myself to the defense of Faith, Family, and Freedom. Whatever little I have to offer, I offer to my nation, to my People, and to my God. God help America!

Three Reasons Why We Should Not Attack North Korea

Preceding His sacrifice for humanity in Gethsemane and on the Cross, the Savior Jesus Christ foretold that in the last days – our days – “ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars.” He prophesied that “nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Matthew 24:6-7). This prophecy is being fulfilled every day as the controlled Establishment media beat the war drums, as brash politicians threaten other nations with war, as conspirators plot to force world government upon mankind at the point of the sword, and as armies form, train, arm, and position themselves for bloodshed and conquest.

While real wars rage in dozens of nations from Afghanistan to Syria, and from Ukraine to Sudan, rumors of wars swirl, portending mayhem in other locations. Iran, Latvia, Poland, Japan, Taiwan, and North Korea are a few prominent spots singled out as potential flashpoints. It is about the North Korean question that I wish to write.

At the present time, the Trump administration is beating the war drums and rallying support for a preemptive war against North Korea. President Trump has not only insulted North Korea’s puppet dictator Kim Jong-un, calling him “rocket man,” among other slurs, but he has promised to visit North Korea with “fire [and] fury.” With this “fire [and] fury,” President Trump has vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea.

To back up the president’s inflammatory, childish, and threatening rhetoric, the U.S. military is busy positioning our troops, armaments, machinery, aircraft, and ships in Asia. Our top military leaders should be smart enough to know that such a move is a severe provocation. Think of the situation in reverse. How would we respond if North Korea placed its troops in Mexico and Canada, paraded its warships off our coasts, held drills with the Mexican military simulating an invasion of the Southern states, and all while Kim Jong-un threatened us with total destruction and “fire and fury”? We would not tolerate such an affront. In all likelihood, we would consider these moves acts of war and respond accordingly. Yet this is precisely what the United States is doing to North Korea (not to mention Iran) at the present time – and we are somehow shocked that North Korea has increased its number of missile tests, drills, and war preparations.

According to numerous sources, our president is gearing up for a war with North Korea potentially in the first part of 2018. While I have always been one to quickly shoot down hyped rumors of “imminent” world war, I can imagine a smaller North Korean conflict beginning sooner than later with President Trump at the helm. While a major war with North Korea could very potentially lead to a world war with Russia and China, I do not believe now is the time.

I believe President Trump – who, lest we forget, campaigned on a warmongering platform and has always been pro-war and pro-military establishment – might risk a limited strike against North Korea in the near future. The president would probably order a limited strike on North Korean military installations, mirroring his unwarranted Tomahawk missile strike in Syria back in April. Such a strike would be small enough that it would not give Russia and China a pretext for war. A large strike, on the other hand, or one that involved tactical nuclear weapons, would not only increase the world’s hatred of the United States, but would give North Korea’s masters – Russia and China – a pretext for war.

n18_25441577

Since 1999, I have predicted a future Asian conflict either in Taiwan or North Korea precipitating World War III – and I hold firm to that prediction. However, several things still have to happen before that terrible event will be thrust upon us. The stars aren’t figuratively aligned just yet for World War III. I think that will be a handful of years in the future. Yet, the clouds of world war can clearly be seen gathering on the horizon, so do not become complacent. Now is the time to prepare to safeguard your family, relocate to a safer location, gather a food storage, get out of debt, develop useful skills, get healthy and into shape, and humble yourself before God.

National repentance in sackcloth and ashes does not seem forthcoming, however. Whether puppet Republicans or puppet Democrats hold power, it matters not – the elite Establishment which runs the show pushes the war agenda. Since the socialist Woodrow Wilson dragged us into World War I on behalf of Zionist and internationalist conspirators, nearly every president has promoted the war agenda on behalf of their elite handlers. Donald Trump is no different. Despite what some in the “alternative” media claim, President Trump is nearly as beholden to the powers-that-be as his predecessors in the Oval Office.

During the 2016 election, Newt Gingrich said on FOX News that the only reason some of the elites dislike President Trump is because “he hasn’t been through the initiation rites. He doesn’t belong to the secret society.” While that may be true, it is equally true that President Trump is in lock-step with the elite’s militaristic agenda. He is an unflinching ally of the terrorist regime in Israel. He rubs shoulders with Rothschild and Zionist agents and has appointed them to high level positions in his administration. He has likewise surrounded himself with dozens of members of the insidious Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). He promotes the Establishment’s Muslim bogeyman narrative. He is an unprincipled populist who has flip-flopped on the issues almost as often as Mitt Romney did. He is a crass individual, an almost pathological egotist, and an admitted serial adulterer. How as he been able to fool those in the “alternative” media who so loudly claim to love the truth and to fight against the oppression of the global conspiracy?

As if fighting a half dozen undeclared, unconstitutional , and immoral wars of aggression was not already enough, the Washington regime seeks to add one more to the list (and likely another in Iran if our president makes good on his campaign promises or lives up to his long-standing alliance with Israel’s elite). What follows are three reasons why attacking North Korea would be an insanely foolish, not to mention immoral and unconstitutional, action, and why we must not tolerate it.

GTY-south-korea-ml-170426_16x9_992

1. The first and most important reason why we should not attack North Korea is that North Korea has not attacked us. Offensive and preemptive warfare is never just. The only just war that may be waged is a legitimately defensive one.

Please note that there is a major difference between preemptive war and defensive war. In the former, a nation is responding to perceived threats, potential problems, fictitious slights, entangling alliances, and hypothetical situations. In the latter, war is waged as a last resort when an enemy has definitively declared or waged war against you, your people, or your legitimate interests; and this only after the standard of peace and friendship has been raised. Since North Korea has not declared or waged war against us, to attack or bomb them would constitute preemptive or offensive war and therefore could never be considered just. It would be yet one more war of conquest and aggression, like every war the United States has fought in the past 160 years.

When the bombing starts, it will be irrelevant whether the controlled press reports that it is being carried out in the so-called name of “national security” or “national defense.” The fact is that if North Korea has not attacked us or initiated the conflict, we have no right to attack them. Period. In the same way, we had no right to invade Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, or Syria. None of these nations had attacked us, and none posed a legitimate threat. Thus, we were the aggressor and are guilty of mass war crimes.

Additionally, we seem to have forgotten that the Korean War – an undeclared and pointless war waged by President Truman at the behest of the United Nations – ended 64 years ago. Yes, North Korea verbally threatens us, but so, too, do we threaten them. Yes, the North Koreans are testing advanced weapons – weapons which we have not only had for decades, but which we have aimed at North Korea. We have become supreme hypocrites. We have rejected the attitude of our Founding Fathers which was to extend the hand of friendship to the world in peacetime. We have rejected the Golden Rule set forth by the Lord Jesus Christ, which is to treat others as we wish to be treated. No, we should never roll over and let ourselves be abused by thugs either at home or abroad, but we must not allow our legitimate defensive preparations to mutate into hatred and aggressive behavior as it has done in the Middle East and in our relations with the Muslim world, and as it threatens to do regarding North Korea.

Lastly, a nation which initiates a war cannot expect to receive the support and blessings of Heaven. If it conquers, it will do so based purely on its own temporal, mortal strength, and not because of the divine intervention of the Almighty. Our forefathers who declared Independence from the tyrannical British monarchy were sincere Christians fighting for their Liberty, their families, and their land. They humbled themselves before God and were not guilty of initiating the war. Indeed, they spent years petitioning for a redress of grievances before finally taking up the sword against their oppressors. Because of their devotion to God, their innocence in beginning the conflict, and the justice of their cause, God blessed and defended them. He fought their battles, and often in supernatural ways.

Today, however, if we choose to initiate a war against a nation which has not harmed us – even one as despicable as communist North Korea – we will not only forfeit any claim on God’s superintending power and protection, but we will incur His wrath upon us. The choice is ours.

2. A second major reason why an attack on North Korea would be wrong is because it would most definitely be undeclared and, thus, unconstitutional. You will recall that George Washington stated in his Farewell Address that “the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all.” The president, as well as the other elected representatives in government, is oath-bound to uphold, defend, protect, and enforce the Constitution’s plain provisions. This is a sacred duty. This is the sole reason a president is elected. No president has a mandate to do whatever he chooses; his sole duty is to defend the rights of the People by obeying and upholding the U.S. Constitution.

We The People

Almost any attack on North Korea would be launched as either an offensive or preemptive strike. Just war theory condemns such attacks. The scriptures condemn them as immoral. And the U.S. Constitution prohibits the president from launching them by placing the duty to make war exclusively in the hands of Congress. Unbeknownst to most people, the president is only the Commander-in-Chief during wartime. It is thus wrong to call the president “Commander-in-Chief” in peacetime.

Furthermore, war can only be declared by Congress. Notwithstanding the so-called War Powers Act and other such war bills (all of which are null and void because they violate the Constitution), the president has no legitimate authority to take the United States to war of his own accord. Nor does the president have the authority to bomb or attack anyone for any reason unless Congress first declares war. The only exceptions to this rule are the defensive use of troops in the event of a surprise attack upon the nation or in the suppression of legitimate insurrection. Otherwise, for a president to take the initiative to call up, mobilize, deploy, or utilize American troops without a declaration of war from Congress is unconstitutional and unlawful. Such a gross violation of one’s oath of office is a serious offense. As a minimum, it is grounds for immediate impeachment.

If President Trump launches a war against North Korea, I will join the chorus of voices calling for his impeachment – albeit my reason will be grounded in the Constitution, not sectarian bigotry and paranoia. Men come and go, but the Constitution remains “sacredly obligatory” upon each of us. We are a nation of laws, not of men. Each elected representative in our government must be held strictly accountable for upholding and enforcing the constitutional laws of the land, and must be punished when they violate their solemn oaths of office. President Trump is no exception.

3. The third reason why we should not attack North Korea is the chance of such an attack escalating into a world war with Soviet Russia and Red China. While I do not believe a limited strike on North Korean military installations will bring about a world war, and that we still have a number of years left to prepare for that cataclysmic event, it would nevertheless take us to the brink and increase tensions unnecessarily. And since the chaos of war often foils even the best-laid plans, the chance of incidentally escalating a localized conflict into a regional or world war dramatically increases. This is one reason why war must always be a last resort.

The reader must understand that communism is not dead. The USSR never collapsed, but faked its demise in order to fool the West and lull us into a false sense of security. For the most part, this plan has succeeded and the average person is not only oblivious to the communist threat, but supports communist principles from “free” education to a national bank to wealth redistribution under the guise of taxation and welfare schemes. Truly, the Red Plague has never been more potent, pervasive, and powerful as it is today.

While we are under the Lord’s directive to raise the standard of peace even to our enemies, we must remember that Russia and China can never be our friends while they remain communist states. We cannot rely upon them for alliances or for support in dealing with North Korea, as I have heard certain media personalities propose. What’s more, the communists consider themselves at perpetual war with the “capitalists” and “bourgeoisie” (i.e. anyone not under their yoke of slavery), and they will not tolerate too many attacks upon one of their own. The communists have always been prepared to take one strategic step back for every two steps forward, but there are certain lines in the sand they will not allow their supreme enemy (i.e. the United States) to cross too far with impunity.

1058996376

Contrary to what some think, Russia and Red China are very much allied in their opposition to the United States and in their support of communist world revolution. Contrary to what the “alternative” media talking heads claim, Vladimir Putin is a communist. He is not an opponent to the world conspiracy; he is part of their system. He is not a peacemaker; he is a warmonger who has attacked his own people, murdered his opposition, and rules with an iron fist. He is not our ally or friend, nor indeed can be. And he is certainly not the “savior of Christianity” I have so often heard him described as. Putin and his Chinese counterparts are the avowed enemies of everything traditional Americans hold dear.

We must not play into the communists’ hands by letting our foolish president and his conniving advisers hurl us into yet another war where innocent people the world over could suffer. Eventually, we will be forced to fight the communists because they want war and because they are sworn to world domination. However, we should not enter this war by initiating the conflict through our aggression – an act which would deprive us of God’s protection and of constitutional validity. Any attack on North Korea can only strengthen the communist position while diminishing our own in the eyes of the world, in the eyes of true constitutionalists, and in the eyes of our God.

In summary, the three main reasons we should not attack North Korea are as follows: 1) Our cause is not just if we initiate the war. By starting the conflict, we become the aggressor and deprive ourselves of divine help. 2) The Constitution does not give the president the authority to take us to war without a congressional declaration. Doing so is a violation of the president’s oath and would be grounds for immediate impeachment. 3) Initiating this war plays into the communists’ hands. They want a world war, and they want us to start it so that they can play their old propaganda tune which paints them as the “liberators” of peoples oppressed by the “capitalists.” Let us not be the communists’ dupes any longer.

I urge those who are awake and aware of the existence and workings of the international conspiracy to speak out as never before. We need watchmen on the tower warning their countrymen. We must expose the global cabal’s various prongs, including the powerful Zionist and communist conspiracies which share the same goal and whose leaders serve the same demonic master. We must use our influence to promote the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We must lead our nation to repentance and revival by our own good examples.

7f17b033a4c39ef3696302fb0af9dfa0

I close how I began, by quoting the Master. He said: “Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword” (Matthew 26:52). If the American People allow yet another wicked administration to take us into yet another unjust, undeclared, unconstitutional, immoral, offensive war, we will not only divorce ourselves further from God’s promise of divine protection, but will increase the likelihood that we will die by the sword ourselves.

As painful as it is to admit, we have become a warlike and belligerent nation. The only remedy to this dire situation is repentance – personal and national. We must repent, turn to God, and hold our political leaders accountable for their broken oaths and offensive behavior. If we want to become a truly secure nation, we must become a moral nation; a Christian nation. A nation armed with the sword of the Spirit and the power of Christ’s protection can never be overpowered, even though the entire communist world might combine against it.

I leave you with the words of Spencer W. Kimball who truthfully stated:

“We are a warlike people, easily distracted from our assignment of preparing for the coming of the Lord. When enemies rise up, we commit vast resources to the fabrication of gods of stone and steel—ships, planes, missiles, fortifications—and depend on them for protection and deliverance. When threatened, we become antienemy instead of pro-kingdom of God; we train a man in the art of war and call him a patriot, thus, in the manner of Satan’s counterfeit of true patriotism, perverting the Savior’s teaching:

““Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

““That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.” (Matt. 5:44–45.)

“We forget that if we are righteous the Lord will either not suffer our enemies to come upon us . . . or he will fight our battles for us.”

Let us not be guilty of the first offense. Rather, let us turn to God, proclaim peace, and prepare to defend ourselves in the strength of the Lord.
