When the worldly philosophies come

rolling in like a demonic tidal wave,

may we boldly stand upon the rock of

Jesus Christ our Lord, not the sinking

sands of worldly, popular philosophies

that magnify man and minimize our God.

For tragically this is often what you will

hear from Christians and unbelievers alike.

Be aggressive. Be first. Do whatever it takes

for success! Be positive which is oftentimes

toxically for the intent is to get ahead not to

please and honor our Lord and Savior Jesus

Christ. Be first! Don’t judge! Don’t call sin, sin.

Citizens of the eternal Kingdom, may we remind

ourselves and each other of what Jesus and the

Bible says. Esteem each other other higher than

ourselves. The spiritual man judges all things. The

last shall be first. Do everything as unto the Lord.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things

shall be added unto you. Speak the truth in love.

When the worldly philosophies come in like a

roaring chaotic tidal wave, may we stand upon

the rock of Jesus Christ not the sinking sands

of worldly, popular philosophies that make us

look more like the world than the King of Kings

and Lord of Lords. May the Lord Jesus Christ

grant us the courage and boldness to say to

any and all authorities as Shadrach, Meshach,

and Abednego did, “O King we will not worhsip

the image of gold that you have set up. If it must

be, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us

from the burning fiery furnance, O King and to

rescue us from your hand. And if we suffer according

to the will of God, we will commit the keeping of our

souls to him for safe keeping as unto our faithful,

sovereign, gracious, loving, merciful, omniscient,

omnipotent, omnipresent Savior and Lord! Amen and Amen
