The 40 Day, 40 Night Challenge - Day 28

Identity.

Today's Reading:

Genesis 1:27

Jeremiah 1:5

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Colossians 3:1-3

Who are you? Are you a sign that you belong to the world or to him? It is hard for people to answer what do you worship. Because almost no one would say, my body, car, house, title etc. but if I say what are you afraid of losing it makes it a bit easier. I am afraid of losing my beauty to age, or my car or position.

As a guy who once lost everything, I can tell you who I was. My car, my house, my job, my future or even who I was seen with. I was sick. In fact, so sick that when I lost it all in 1993, I actually cried when I had to sell my car. Wow, was I shallow. These were my idols.

I was lucky. I lost it all and God humbled me. I think still, my ego is my biggest fear. My job plays into this. People either love me or hate me. To stay sane I focus on the love part. But love can be addicting and it can easily make your head swell if you begin to buy your own press.

What is your fear and weakness? If I were Satan and wanted to trap you in something that you loved, where would I strike?

It is not something you conquer. It is like alcoholism, you live one day at a time as life can wrap you up and blindside you. You will never see it coming and maybe when you see it now, you don't even know how you got here.

We are commanded not to have false gods or worship idols but I think we do it all the time. I am convinced we are a society that is currently worshiping the Old Testament god Molock and we just don't know it. That is a deeper subject and one worth examining. But, in our own lives, what are those things that you just wouldn't risk losing.

If you knew by standing for what you believed would get you fired or cause you to lose X, would you speak? If what you KNEW God's law was against, would you be willing to take a stand and lose?

I believe we will face this test each in our own way. It may be a test or it may be life threatening, but each of us will face it.

God is looking to us for a SIGN that we are His people. We constantly ask Him for a sign. I think the tables have been turned. The Old Testament teaches us that even the Sabbath is A SIGN TO HIM that we are His people. How are you showing Him?

The only thing now, thank God, I am unwilling to lose, is my soul.

This puts me many times in very difficult positions, especially in the New York media circles. So be it. I have been purchased with His blood. That is too high of a price for me to squander. Besides, I have never been happier nor more at peace. It all comes from Him. May I be better today than I was yesterday at being a sign that I belong only to Him.

Question:

Where does your identity lie? Is it in how you look, or is it how you act? Is it how you talk, walk, run? Is it found in your job? Family? Relationships?

Application:

Today, choose this day whom you will serve. There will be a time coming when we all will have to give count of our days and whom we serve… What will your answer be?

MLK Pledge - #4:

Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

Quote:

“Your real, new self (which is Christ's and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come as long as you are looking for it. It will come when you are looking for Him. Does that sound strange?

The same principle holds, you know, for more everyday matters. Even in social life, you will never make a good impression on other people until you stop thinking about what sort of impression you are making. Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

The principle runs through all life from top to bottom, Give up yourself, and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it. Submit to death, death of your ambitions and favourite wishes every day and death of your whole body in the end submit with every fibre of your being, and you will find eternal life. Keep back nothing. Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours. Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else."

Elon Musk easily TRIGGERS Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales with 5-word tweet amid recession definition feud

After the U.S. posted two straight quarters of negative GDP growth, the Biden administration conveniently decided to change the conventional (though not "technical," according to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen) definition of "recession." Recent changes to the “recession” page on Wikipedia now have people wondering if the online encyclopedia has conveniently changed the conventional definition of "objective."

After a revision war erupted on Wikipedia's “recession” page, administrators locked the page from any further edits. Some people on Twitter seemed to find the newly un-editable version suspiciously favorable to Democrats.

That's when Elon Musk jumped into the fray. "Wikipedia is losing its objectivity," Musk tweeted and tagged Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.

Wales responded by inviting Musk to call him for a "real discussion," but only after saying "Reading too much Twitter nonsense is making you stupid."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn said he thinks the left would do anything to win an argument or to justify its radical policy positions, including alter our language. In the video clip below, Glenn details how those on the left have recently manipulated the meanings of at least seven words just to rationalize their out-of-touch political ideas.

It's amazing to see just how strongly many LGBT+ Americans are allied with Palestine in the Israel-Palestine conflict because the Palestinians aren't exactly pro-LGBTQ.

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to go into the West Bank to ask people on the streets of the Palestinian territories to explain their views firsthand. What he discovered was a shocking and even violent intolerance for the LGBT+ community.

Ami joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to share a sample of his eye-opening footage and the stunning reactions he received from pro-Palestinian (and vehemently anti-Isreal) LGBT+ Americans.

On direct orders from President Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security has released 79,652 migrants into the United States in just the last month after they were detained for illegally crossing the southern border. This brings the total number of illegals that have been caught and released into the United States on Biden's watch to 1.335 million people.

"At this pace, the ones that we catch and release — not the ones that we didn't catch — [will total] 3.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States in [Biden's] first term," said Glenn Beck on the radio program.


Biden’s border crisis is getting EVEN WORSE | #shortsyoutu.be

Perhaps these shocking statistics had something to do with the Biden administration's quiet approval of a plan to complete a portion of former President Donald Trump's border wall in southern Arizona.

On Thursday, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the completion of the U.S.- Mexico border wall in Arizona’s "Yuma Sector," despite Biden's oft-repeated promise that "not another foot" of Trump's wall would be constructed while he is president.

A Department of Homeland Security announcement cited "immediate life and safety risks" for migrants attempting to cross into the United States illegally as well as the first responders and agents working in the area "where there is a risk of drownings and injuries from falls."

Interestingly, mainstream media outlets seem to have suddenly seen the light when it comes to the actual function of a wall. Yes, walls provide security and help keep people safe. Biden's border walls "will better protect migrants who can get hurt slipping down a slope or drown walking through a low section of the Colorado River," according to NBC News.

But people on social media noticed more than a slight discrepancy in the way news about the border wall was framed under President Trump.

In 2020, NBC News said "President Trump's border wall endangered ecosystems and sacred sites." But on Friday, they said closing the gaps in the wall "won’t be much of a deterrent," according to Arizona environmentalist Myles Traphagen who has been "mapping ecological damage left by border wall construction" under former President Trump.

"Biden had pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction, but the administration later agreed to some barriers, citing safety," AP News reported.

"In addition to posing 'safety and life hazard risks for migrants,' the [D]epartment [of Homeland Security] said the gaps in the wall presented 'life and safety' risks to first responders in the area," reported CNN.

"Completion of the wall was at the top of former President Donald Trump’s agenda, and border security remains a potent issue for candidates of both parties going into this year’s primary elections. President Joe Biden halted new wall construction after he took office, but he has since made closing the gaps just south of Yuma a priority," said NBC News.

Earlier this week, CNN wrote an ugly, baseless trash piece titled “An 'imposter Christianity' is threatening American democracy” that argued American Christianity is being overrun by radical "white Christian nationalists" and supported that premise with far-left thinkers and biased New York Times best-sellers.

BlazeTV's Glenn Beck said the article was so bad, it made his "eyes bleed." So, on the radio program Thursday, Glenn debunked it all in an epic takedown of CNN's lies — and he brought all the facts from history that prove "everything CNN is contending here is wrong."
