The Greatest Leaders

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Just this week, I returned home from our tour in the great state of Texas. Hot though it was (96 degrees), it was great to be a part of the great battle between good and evil, for we all know who wins the end game (James 1:22-25).

I have also seen that much has been sacrificed on behalf of this country to turn in the day of battle when we should stand up and fight (Psalm 78:9), and fighting we are (Zechariah 4:6)!

While I have seen these things, there is this one thing I do know; for my Father is not a respecter of persons. (Romans 2:11) What God did for less than 3% of America’s population along with 13 colonies and 56 signers during the revolutionary war, He will do for us if we are willing to respond to the call and command (Isaiah 1:19-20; Exodus 23:20-33)!

On a national front this past week, we had ample opportunity to see what real leadership looks and acts like. These are the kinds of leaders who are not diplomatic, which is seduction in another guise; nor are they compromisers, which is two people getting together to sit and agree on what they both know is wrong. In America, it is not hard to identify what a real leader looks and acts like (Matthew 7:16) because the state-controlled media (Isaiah 5:20) is right there to help you identify who they are by attacking them at every rightful step (Matthew 5:10)!

In America, we should know that the real task of a leader is to bring the people from where they are, and where they have been, to where they rightfully ought to be (Jeremiah 6:16). That is, if they can make out the difference between right and the wrong.

For example: If there were a coach in America that were to lose game after game, week after week, and year after year, the way the corrupt politicians are with America’s blood-bought freedoms, what do you suppose the American people would do with that coach? They would fire that coach and replace him as soon as possible, and rightly so.

Of course, that is what the American people are attempting to do today with establishment politicians and their corruption. People are sick and tired of being sick and tired; they are tired of being lied too, manipulated, conned, coerced, and even extorted.

So what is needed? Real leaders!

Real leaders (not paper tigers, not them that hide behind a microphone and no more, not them that are concerned about the approbation of men or about their own reputations–Philippians 2:7) are beginning to stand up for the unpopular truth against popular error. And I thank God for it.

As President Benjamin Harrison said:

“The Law, the will of the majority expressed in orderly, constitutional methods, is the only King to which we bow.”

Leaders know that:

  • You do not ask the devil for permission to obey God (Luke 10:19).
  • You do not take counsel from your fears (2 Timothy 1:7).
  • You are not called to lead up the consensus, but rather to be a molder of consensus (Matthew 7:14; John 6).
  • That where the battle rages, there loyalty is proved, and that you are to be steady on all fronts (Isaiah 50:7).
  • To support and to practice right principles so that the end result will never be the wrong result (Isaiah 40:8).

America needs strong confident leaders (Proverbs 14:26), who are righteous and bold as lions (Proverbs 28:1).

The greatest leaders are always the best followers, the followers of Jesus Christ (John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 11:1).

America needs to know that God is willing to give us what we are willing to fight for (1 Timothy 6:12; Romans 1:16).

The Islamic Mosqueing Of Public Schools In America

Schools in Tennessee are attempting to force students to declare Allah to be the supreme god.

Maury County parents are expressing their outrage against a textbook’s recounting of Muhammad being a prophet inspired by Allah.

Brandee Porterfield has expressed her anger toward that aspect of the textbook, saying:

I have (a) big problem with that. From a historical point of view, that’s a lot of history these kids are missing. … Also, for them to spend three weeks on Islam after having skipped Christianity, it seems to be that they are making a choice about which religion to discuss.

A Christian pastor in Tennessee has gotten so upset at the Islamic indoctrination in public schools that he is now telling Christian students to fail any class that teaches Islam and not go to the side of the devil:

Pastor Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church said church families were concerned and upset about middle school students being taught “a half-page of watered down Christianity”–and 28 pages of Islamic curriculum–in sixth grade.

“We have a number of our families at our church that are really upset and up and arms over all of this new Islamic indoctrination in our public school system,” Locke said. “That is nothing more than absolute brainwashing of religion, and we’re not going to stand for it.”

Wilson County Schools Director Donna Wright called Locke’s claims blatantly false and claimed that his video was made to intentionally incite parents and the community.

“No one in any Wilson County School is teaching any indoctrination of Islam or of any world religion for that matter,” Wright said. “To imply or state otherwise shows a lack of knowledge about the standards used in our schools.”

Instead of backing down, Locke doubled down and said that the school was equating all gods with the one true God.

“It’s straight up indoctrination – I’m not backing off that,” he said Friday.

There is nothing more frustrating for one who is in a system of indoctrination (public schools and colleges) than people trying to warn those outside about what is going on inside while the people take no heed.

These young people are being dropped off by their parents at the school gate to be illegally indoctrinated by the federal government through the violation of the 10th Amendment. What is even worse is that so many of these parents profess to be Christians, conservatives and/or patriots, and yet throw their kids into the shark-infested waters of foreign indoctrination (Proverbs 22:6). They simply hold the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18). Hypocrites.

Well, there comes a time, though I hate to say it, when I have to say “I told you so” (Deuteronomy 28:32).

previously warned about Islamic indoctrination in public schools, in August 2012. I wrote:

If you thought the U.N. International Baccalaureate and federal No Child Left Behind educational schemes were bad enough, you might want to look a little deeper.

In light of the 9/11 attacks, you would think the current administration would use a little prudence if they were sincerely concerned about a Muslim threat. When Obama took his oath of office, he instead defied America in numerous ways. He has given $1.5 billion to Muslim-led Egypt in foreign aid, shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood declared war on the United States. This is the same man that said America is “no longer a Christian nation,” followed by a reference that America may be described as a Muslim nation.

Studies have shown over 500 historical errors in public school textbooks giving an Islamic slant to our youth.

As a result, our youth are subject to the following teachings and practices:

How did this happen? The ACLU, the American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Clinton administration joined together to create an environment that opened the door to Muslim teaching, while attacking anyone who speaks of the Christian religion in public schools.

Hence, you see the courts backing the Muslim agenda when, for example, a school in California is teaching their students a three-week course that essentially requires them to become a Muslim for that period of time!

This also very well explains why my ministry has been under incessant attack for bringing a moral and constitutional message to public schools.

To prove my point, a representative from the American Muslim Council, Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi, today serves a 23-year prison sentence for being one of the top fundraisers of al-Qaida in the U.S.

In addition, there are over 225 Muslim schools in the U.S. and around 50,000 children who are being taught to, and I quote Brigitte Gabriel with ACT! For America, “foster an environment of hate, loathing and resentment toward Western culture, Christians, Jews, Shiites, secular Muslims and non-Muslims.”

Saudis have taken advantage of the Title VI program that our government implemented after World War II for the education of young Americans about foreign cultures and languages.

They are using their riches from oil to pump millions of dollars into our universities to appoint Arab professors in departments such as political science, Middle East studies, etc. who are brainwashing our students with an anti-American point of view. They teach that we are the problem; that our foreign policy is the problem; and that our wealth, enlightenment and success are oppressing the rest of the world.

This explains why Obama is apologizing to other nations. This is why he is targeting the youth vote after this anti-American curriculum has snuck its way into our schools. This is also why the communist ACLU organization quickly represents Muslims while refusing to defend Christians who practice their faith in public schools.

America, why is this happening? In a nation that was founded on Christian principles, whose students were nurtured in a biblical worldview, could it be that the Christians became apathetic, went to sleep and allowed this radical agenda to creep in unnoticed by the public at large? (Read Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28.)

God’s Law, War And A Jailed County Clerk

“Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’S side? Let him come unto me.” Exodus 32:26

This past week, the Minneapolis Star and Tribune (called The Red Star by locals) posted a picture of a group of people claiming to be affiliated with Black Lives Matter. In reality, they were promoting an event that no one would show up too.

It was reported that Black Lives Matter “plans a march along Snelling Avenue and rally outside the fair beginning at 11 a.m. to raise awareness about issues that plague black communities.” Of course, there had to be a text set with a picture of all 50 people gathered together to protest.

It has been stated, “You take the pictures and I will create the war.” Day after day, the media is doing everything in its power to divide and conquer by using this methodology in hopes of inciting a tangible response to their lies (Matthew 12:22-28).

The problem with this piece is that I was personally at the Minnesota State Fair for 12 hours the same day that the media reported these lies! It simply never happened.

These people mean to incite a war, and the first casualty of that war is the truth. So, let’s get to the truth and expose those who are inciting the war.

People need to get past skin color-based agendas and realize that we are in this together and are “One nation under God.”

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth….” Acts 17:26

Yet, I feel inclined at this point to ask the question: whose side are the people on when they make statements like “Black lives matter”? What of the lives of those who are not black; do they matter? Of course, they do.

I am so tired of those who attempt to race-bait by using skin color for their argument to bring about division.

An “injustice done anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This statement includes all people, regardless of skin color.

This entire issue comes down to this: There are those who obey the law, and there are those who disobey the law. When you look at “Lady Justice,” she is blindfolded, having a balance in her right hand and a sword in the other.

Justice must be administered where the law has been violated, regardless of one’s skin color. According to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, justice is merited punishment for violation of the law.

But whose law are we talking about? Look above the heads of the Supreme Court justices in my home state of Minnesota – who is it that you see above them? None other than Moses, awaiting the Divine Law, the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:4-21; Exodus 20:1-17).

The righteous people who call for justice and take a stand against a man who shoots down a cop in the middle of the day are not racist because the murderer happens to be black. People in this country would have responded the same way if it had been a white man.

Americans are not racist for calling out illegal Mexicans for violating the law. The illegals are breaking the law by coming into America illegally, and that makes them criminals. The law defines their crime (Romans 3:20).

When a woman (white, black, Hispanic, etc.) kills an innocent baby in her womb and then cries “war on women,” this does not exempt her from justice, regardless of the corrupt in government who attempt to sanction murder (Proverbs 6:17).  No, we are ruled by law, not by corrupt officials.

“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?” Psalm 94:20 No, it will not!

For we know that the corrupt (this includes the people who allow them to commit the crime) have turned “judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness to the ground” (Amos 5:7). I say truth crushed to the earth will rise again, like a lion let loose to defend itself – defend itself, it will.

When a sodomite confronts a county clerk for not handing out state licenses in violation of God’s Moral law and calls it bigotry, homophobia or hate, we, as Americans, need to realize that they are willfully ignorant or just plain wicked. And the wicked are those who know the truth, but choose not to obey the truth.

“And their iniquity (lawlessness) is found to be hateful.” Psalm 36:2

Those who have not wickedly departed from their God (Psalm 18:21) must deal with the wicked in righteousness, and in accordance with written law and obedience to God.

As you exit the chambers of the Minnesota Supreme Court, which I mentioned above, a sign reminds you: “Where the law ends, tyranny begins.” Tyranny is the last thing anyone in their right mind would want. Therefore, we must all Kiss the Son (Psalm 2:12) and agree to His government to understand real freedom (John 8:36), liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17), and unity (Ephesians 4:3).

Friends, we are given the choice between war and honor. If we choose to dishonor God and His moral Law, we can be assured that we will have war. So whose side are you on? (Exodus 32:26)

If you fail to recognize the problem at hand, then know that the tyrant your forefathers warned you about will rule the day, and all will be lost. We are all in this together. But I ask: whose side are you on?

All War All The Time: Rethinking America’s Addiction To War

“Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.” John F. Kennedy

Ever since I can remember, there has been war after war and talk of another war: Vietnam, Iran, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan. As a matter of fact, the United States has been at war almost continually since 1776. America has been in some sort of conflict 214 of the 236 years of its existence. That’s 90 percent of our history we’ve been at war!

There are the Lord’s wars, and there is man’s war. People, more often than not, cannot discern the difference between good and evil, right and wrong, and righteous and unrighteous, when it comes to war! 

“All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.” -Noah Webster

I am humored when world leaders talk much of war and, in many cases, have never been to war. I suggest that the people, on a global scale, begin to demand that their representatives who desire war be the first to be sent to war if it is such a noble cause. This is how the noble men did it in the days of old. Furthermore, if it is a noble cause, you can rest assured that the people will rally around to deal with the evil at hand.

Treason Within!

However, wars today are sold to people with no reference to God or His Laws, or the enumerated laws found within our constitution. What wins out is the war the wicked promote through lies and deception, hoping that the people will get behind the war which they have created (Proverbs 28:4).  In fact, in many of these cases, those who promote the wars are playing the victim of an attack that they contrived to set the people at war with their political opposition (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

What’s worse is the fact they are so willing to send America’s best (America’s sons and daughters) in place of themselves to fight in a war they are unwilling to fight in themselves.

“Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die!” -President Herbert Hoover

Remember, in peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons. -Herodotus

George Washington and those who laid our foundations did so through the Revolutionary War (2 Samuel 18:2). They did not promote anything they themselves were not willing to sacrifice to promote (John 15:13).

It was said, in a eulogy by Henry Lee, that George Washington was “First in War, First in Peace, and First in the Hearts of His Countrymen.”

In fact, the summation of the Declaration of Independence presented this union of a mutual bond against a mutual enemy and a mutual future.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

The best way to win future wars is to prevent them.

In his diary entry, dated February 22, 1756, John Adams wrote:

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God…What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

One thing that aggravates me with people is when they begin to blame the government for unconstitutional wars. The fact is that they are unconstitutional; but I ask you, who is the government?

America, you are the law under God!

“Bear always in mind that a nation ceases to be Republican only when the will of the majority ceases to be the law.” –Thomas Jefferson

I have to remind people that the people are the government, and they are the ones who have allowed their representatives (Congress) to send “their kids,” in many cases, to fight these unconstitutional wars.

“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” –Declaration of Independence

Americans forget so quickly as to who is behind many of these money making, contrived wars and why they go forward.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned:

The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting, if at all possible; and that comes through the rule of God’s Law, in order that you can have the desired peace.

America: Beware The Smiling Traitor!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”  -Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator, Source: Attributed. 58 BC, Speech in the Roman Senate

America is again being diverted away from another treasonous act by this administration: the “Iran nuke deal,” which is nothing more than appeasement through funding and enabling militarily America’s sworn enemies. Treason, treason and more treason.

Let me cut to the chase here. If what was happening in this country was happening in a foreign country, the people in this country would have called for military strikes, as well as an all-out manhunt pertaining to the dictators who were guilty of the same things that Barack Hussein Obama and his criminal administration are guilty of here in America. Yet, because it is happening here, the people have somehow deceived themselves into believing that what they have allowed is not as bad as what is happening over in third world countries. What is even worse is that as long as there are smiles and the reciting of the word “Constitution,” the American people are set at ease–only to set themselves up for the next act of treason. But as long as he is smiling…

I was humored the other day when an individual said to me: “Bradlee, you are so bold and harsh at times!” (Romans 8:14; Hebrews 1:7; Psalm 104:4; Proverbs 28:1) I said, “Really? It is the command of God, concerning the church people, to warn people that the house (of sin) is on fire and they need to get out lest they perish! (Ezekiel 33:3; 2 Corinthians 5:11).”

I reminded this person that the Word of The Lord is like a fire, “like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces” (Jeremiah 23:29).  The end result is to hopefully bring forth “repentance toward God and Faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21; Galatians 3:24). The church is to magnify God’s Law (Isaiah 42:21) while the Holy Ghost comes to “convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment” (John 16:8).

Oh how little of the Character of Jesus Christ do men in America relate or identify with today. They are much like Jesus’ disciples.

“…and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am? And they answered, John the Baptist (Luke 3:19); but some say, Elias (1 Kings 18:38); and others, One of the prophets (Acts 3:22).” (Mark 8:27-28)

George Whitefield, the Great Awakening field preacher, said: “It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher” (Matthew 7:29).

I went on to tell the individual I was speaking with that, on the contrary, the people in this country have been so conditioned to believe that the one who sets the house on fire (encourages and acts out transgressions against God’s and America’s constitutional Laws), endangering all within (figuratively speaking) while flattering, lying, smiling and kissing up about the state of the country, is somehow looking out for the good of the people within. Remember, Judas betrayed Jesus Christ with a kiss (Luke 22:48).

No, these are the characteristics of how dictators act. They destroy through policy and prosper by craft.

“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it, and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.” Proverbs 26:28

This only takes place when a people throw off God’s Law and America’s founding documents and give a free hand to the destroyer (John 10:10). This is a point no one can deny in America today.

Furthermore, dictators have a smile on their face as they go along not to offend, but to appease – that is, until in the transcending mode he gets to power. Then he can dictate by force.

“There is nothing stable but Heaven and The Constitution.” –President James Buchanan

Be it known, America, that you have been warned time and time again concerning the corruption in your Government and Churches, which is God’s mercy (Luke 12:2). Yet, you have done nothing to appease God’s wrath by bringing forth judgment upon the heads of the wicked.

Because if you did, God said:

Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. Jeremiah 5:1
