Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

declaration

This Fourth of July I celebrated with family, friends, tri tip, and two war movies (Saving Private Ryan and The Patriot). We set aside some time to reflect on our freedoms that we are thankful for.  Mine was, “Being thankful for the freedom to choose freely to marry one women for the rest of my life without it being forced upon, like in some countries.”

I am also thankful to live in a nation that was founded by believers of Jesus Christ! Their Faith was strong and their fight for Justice was fierce. I can not imagine life any other way, but it saddens me to see how far we have strayed from the path that we were placed on. It is an honor and a privilege to live in this Country, but many have taken this freedom for granted by dismantling values and deserting beliefs. Our nation’s founders were God fearing men that knew their strength was in Him! Deuteronomy 10:20: “Fear the LORD your God and serve Him. Hold fast to Him and take your oaths in His name.” Too many leaders of this Country have lost the significance of taking Office and why it is done with their right hand on the Word of God!

This life of mine is endowed by my Creator and my Independence is found in Him. He has giving me freedom that I am honored to be able to share in. Every Tuesday Night, I have the Freedom and Liberty to pursue Happiness…that Happiness is found in Him. So I freely pursue Him as a Right of being an American. The great thing about that is , it does not stop there! I pursue Happiness everyday, He is my Beloved and I am His! So I want you to know that Life is from Him, Liberty is from Him, and true Happiness is from HIM! Let’s bring 1776 to 2009 and truly understand what this Declaration of Independence stands for.

The Declaration of Independence was written and signed in a time when freedom was rare and tyranny was rampant.

It says:

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

So yes, it is good to be humble, but there comes a time when WE must stand for what is right and fight for our freedom! The Enemy is not fit to rule free people so may we no longer compromise our freedoms but may our Nation stay the course and HOLD FAST TO HIM in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

Happy Fourth,

Patrick Judah

California high court upholds gay marriage ban! In a world growing deeper in darkness daily, it is encouraging to see a VICTORY FOR CHRIST in the physical realm! I know that there is spiritual breakthrough in the hearts of man every single day that goes unseen to the world as a whole. But to see breakthrough in the natural while being broadcasted around the nation and beyond is huge. Many states look to California for new trends and fads and this latest statement declares that THE PEOPLE still hold the vote even when it is not generally liked. This was a very close call and it is sad to see that this issue of Gay Marriage has even made it this far; this is only the beginning! We still have to stand our ground regardless of the persecution! When the disciples and believers were persecuted in the Bible times for their faith, it only SPREAD THE GOSPEL! What do we have to fear other than GOD himself? As believers in Christ it is up to us in our personal lives to stay true to our Makers Law. As the Body of Christ it is up to us to stand as a whole to uphold what God has created as pure. As a nation we are responsible for the results of the votes so let’s continue to walk down the Road of Righteousness and uphold Justice knowing that GOD loves all of His people and will bring His Will to pass.

Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Hebrews 13:4

Check out Miss CALIFORNIA!!! As she stands on her truths despite what the judge, voters, and others may think. God Bless Miss California!

Go California!

Thank you for your SUPPORT!

I was browsing a site and I found this. It was really inspiring to watch, so I thought I would share it with you.

In the physical world these soldiers are called to lay down their lives for our Country and obey the given commands to attack the enemy. As believers we have been called to do something very similar by our Lord and Savior. In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus said to his disciples, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” HE IS WITH US, regardless of the “worlds” persecution or poorly practiced political “rules” (which are broken more by political leaders than the people.) I am often reminded how much the physical world reflects little fragments of what goes on in the Super Natural. The Light that these soldiers are bringing into such a dark place is a huge defeat on the enemy. These warriors of God have drawn their Swords and put on the FULL ARMOR OF GOD in the Super Natural; allowing The Kingdom to enter into this world!

This Great Commission is directly from the Words of God, so as Sons and Daughters let’s take hold of this calling and be Good News Bearers wherever the Lord has planted us; weather you are in a small dinky town or the middle of a war stricken country that has not yet heard or felt the Love of Jesus.

Lord I am praying that you continue to protect and guide these soldiers in the physical and in the Super Natural. Thank you for men and women that fight for this country and also engage in an even bigger battle that the world does not see. Thank you Lord, for you are good and your LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!

If you liked this, read the blog below about the “vision” that George Washington received. Do you think this “vision” of what’s to come to America is in the form of the Super Natural or of the physical?

Blessings,

George Washington
Today marks the 220th Anniversary of “The Father of Our Country” taking office as our first President under the Union. Being the first President of this great Nation makes many wonder what kind of man George Washington was. Was he a Christian or did he read the Bible? I believe this quote from Washington’s adopted daughter; Nelly Custis-Lewis sums it up, “Is it necessary that any one should [ask], “Did General Washington avow himself to be a believer in Christianity?” As well may we question his patriotism, his heroic devotion to his country. His mottos were, “Deeds, not Words”; and, “For God and my Country. I know there are many other quotes and facts declaring that “The Father of Our Country” was saved by our Savior Jesus Christ. So with that being said it makes this “vision” that Washington received in 1777 all the more authentic, despite it’s controversy.

The Vision

“I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire into the cause of her presence. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. By this time I felt strange sentiments spreading through me. I would have risen, but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, even thought itself had become paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually, the surrounding atmosphere seemed as though becoming filled with sensations and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy, and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world — Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. ‘Son of the Republic,’ said the same mysterious voice as before, ‘look and learn.’

“At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel floating in mid-air, between Europe and America, dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand. He sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a dark cloud raised from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning passed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again I heard the mysterious voice say, ‘Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’

“At this the dark, shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking, I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag, which he placed between the divided nation, and said, ‘Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were joined into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns, and cities that I beheld were springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark, shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth and blew a long and fearful blast.

“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel, upon whose head still shone the word “Union,” and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens, attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle. Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.

“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns, and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice, ‘While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word “Union,” he placed it upon the Standard, while the people, kneeling down, said, ‘Amen.’

“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, ‘Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, passing which the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land, and the Union.’ With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat, and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.”

“Such, my friends,” concluded the venerable narrator, “were the words I heard from General Washington’s own lips, and America will do well to profit by them.”


I will follow up shortly with some of my own feelings and thoughts on this “vision”.  In the mean time I would love to hear what your thoughts are on this.

Thank you,

Patrick Judah

For those of you that did not know, today is Earth day!

I have not been a big fan of, “special days”, that are not important enough to make it an official holiday. To me Earth Day is a lot like Groundhogs day, I’m not sure what purpose they serve. So to find out more about this day I went to, yes, Wikipedia! I found out that today is, “a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment.” That got me asking, well who was “inspired” to “design” the Earth and its environment?

Now because this is a site set up to share history as well as truth I thought I would go to, “The Beginning” , also known as Genesis. There is no better place to start than the origin of it all.

So I opened up my Bible to Genesis 1:1 and it says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”

The rest of the verses go on explaining the creation process of Earth. God created: light, day, night, water, sky, land, seas, vegetation, fruit, sun, moon, birds, livestock, man, and last but not least, woman. In reading those verses and looking about my “environment” it’s impossible not to see the hand print of God  in all of this. He created the perfect “environment” for us to survive!  It was all created for us because God,  is a very loving, intelligent, provider, and creator of the entire Universe.  So He created Earth for us and created us in His image,  how amazing is that?

So after doing this “deep” research, I believe that everyday is Earth day! God has given us all that we need to live and has even provided for the birds and the beast of the field; there is no need to fret about what tomorrow may bring. Let’s give thanks to our Creator each day for this wonderful “environment” that He has created for us. Be faithful with little and He will trust us with more (Matthew 25:21), I can’t even imagine what “more” could like but I know heaven has a lot to do with it!

If only we gave true honor and respect to our Creator, I’m sure we would have countless days reserved for Him and possibly even a “Heaven Day”, but I’m sure that will come soon enough 😀

Thanks for reading,

Patrick Judah

Thomas Jeferson

The principles of Jefferson are the axioms of a free society.” Abraham Lincoln

This site is dedicated to history makers, writers, founders, and forerunners. Today marks the birthday of a gentleman who was all of that and more. So let’s give honor and respect to one of our great American founders; Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Jefferson was a Governor, the first United States Secretary of State, the second Vice President, and the third President of the United States of America. He also was a founder/author of the, Declaration of Independence and a forerunner for religious freedom.

Today marks the 266th birthday of this American Hero; sadly it also marks a day that has lost what was so hard fought for by him and many others. He once said, “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. ”, I believe we are in that time; unfortunately that’s just how, “we the people” have let history run it’s course. What if Thomas Jefferson kept his mouth shut in the pivotal age that he was in? No, he was too genius for that, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” is what he said. This tells us that today, in the midst of this tyranny and corruption we must speak the truth to bring history back into the hands of the just. Thomas Jefferson said, “History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.” It’s apparent that we are in an appalling part of history; the perfect time to rise up, speak life, grab the wheel, and bring this nation back to the, “home of the brave, land of the free!” Not for our own sake, but so that the Lord may look upon us again as a nation of believers that are deserving of His favor and protection.

Know your freedoms and the foundation that you stand on! I encourage you all to do your research on this remarkable history maker.

heart-condition

Here is a piece of art that I drew in 2006 when I moved out to Albuquerque, NM. I wanted to share it with you because this is a visual history time line (from right to left) of my “walk” with JESUS CHRIST. So that’s me sitting down praying; to the right, is the dark worldly forest that I broke out of that year. Above me is the hand of Jesus soaking me with His pure redeeming blood. I asked Jesus into my life when I was 4, but I didn’t understand the fullness of His love and grace until I was about 20. So I became His true friend in 2006, and He used what He had already placed in my heart, the Holy Spirit, to set me free in a lot of areas. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM and POWER. The big blue cloud, that says GOD, is His covering over me, He’s always been there for me. The Lightning bolts represent His beauty and splendor; while I was in Albuquerque I also understood what it meant to fear Him, because He is so magnificent! So the Holy Spirit is the candle; the open window in the heart represents my time away from where I had previously settled around stale air. When the window of new opportunity was opened it let in a fresh “Breath of Life” that re ignited, “this little light of mine”. The fullness of His presence, represented by the light blue cloud thing, came into my life and fully baptized me in the Spirit one night in our living room. The rainbow with music chords flowing out of the heart is the “new sound” and “promise” being released from me for others to see everyday. Notice the empty cocoon hanging off of the music note? That represents the death of the old me; and the new life, the green butterfly, is me after putting to death my old ways in the Rio Grande. I came up out of the cold river water being a brand new man in Christ. The stump is where I continue to lay my junk down and allow my God to remove any thing in my heart that is not of Him.

What are some of the things that you may need to lay down to get your heart right with God?
