From: Songfacts — Mark Farner (ex-Grand Funk)
Songfacts: How did you come up with that song? It seems so unusual – so long and it changes gears in the middle.
Farner: Initially the song came to me after I said my prayers one night and I put a P.S. on the end of my prayers. I asked God to give me a song that would touch the hearts of people that the Creator wanted to get to. I got up at 3 o’clock in the morning – I’m always getting up at different times of the night and writing things down. A lot of them are not songs but this happened to be one.
I got up and I wrote it, and as I’m writing it, I’m between the state of subconscious and conscious. I’ve got one foot in dreamland and my pen is writing these words down. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense. It was kind of weird, I thought, as I was writing it. I didn’t sit there on the edge of the bed and read it over and over, I just wrote it down, and when I got to the end of it, I just folded it over and put it on the nightstand. There it was.
Well, in the morning, I got up, I was drinking my coffee, I was looking at the horses out in the pasture, and I got my feet kicked up. I thought, I’ll grab my flattop here. I had an acoustic George Washburn, a resonant guitar from my kitchen – everybody would grab it when they came here. I started playing. Wow, that’s nice, what the heck is that? Then I made that C chord. I made a mistake. I was going for the G and it was a little short and I hit the C. And I looked down because that chord spoke to me in such a way. I’ve never heard that come out, that inversion of the C. I thought, Wow, that’s a cool chord. Then I thought maybe with those words in the other room, maybe that’s a song, so I grabbed the legal pad and laid it down on the table next to my coffee and I just started strumming. “Everybody…” And it just started coming out. …
The parts to watch are here. The rest is insignificant and boring, in my opinion:
5:50 Peter Helland’s excellent points for 8 minutes!
1:11:20 Al Shire Tory: It was not a united front. The majority were never in favor of the war of independence. There was 15-20% for staying with England, and the patriots never achieved over 50%.

The American Revolution, Part II: Who Wrote the Declaration of Independence? — And Was the Revolution a “Christian” War?
A highly abbreviated version of this article appears on Dr. Henry Makow’s website. (The use of the word “Satanist” in the title of the condensed version was the editor’s choice.)
I consider it prudent to begin this post by duplicating the first paragraphs of the foreword to Part I:
FOREWORD: I do not expect this two-part article to be very popular among American patriots, many of whom are my dear friends. They are among the core of America’s best citizens; men and women who fight to protect constitutional liberties from the police state, and to preserve U.S. national sovereignty from the tyranny of world government.
The following article raises questions about the American Revolution, which many patriots regard as the foundation of their beliefs. It can be dangerous to shake a good man’s foundation – even if the foundation is flawed – because it might cause him to question his worldview, and weaken his resolve. However, no historical event should be held so sacred as to be immune to examination. Our country is in too much trouble to make truth secondary.

‘Jewish heritage is American heritage,’ says Biden
US vice president delivers gushing speech at Democratic Party’s Jewish heritage month event, credits Jews with social change on gay rights
22 May 2013
US Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night praised the Jewish contribution to American society, saying influential Jews helped change attitudes toward gay rights and same-sex marriage.
“The truth is that Jewish heritage, Jewish culture, Jewish values are such an essential part of who we are that it’s fair to say that Jewish heritage is American heritage,” Biden said at a reception hosted by the Democratic National Committee in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. …
“No group has had such an outsized influence per capita,” he said….
The media and arts were a step ahead of the public when it came to advancing gay rights, the vice president said. Public acceptance of drastic social changes took time. “It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was ‘Will and Grace,’ it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes.”
“Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry,” he said. “The influence is immense.” … Continue reading “Biden credits Jews on accepting gay agenda through Hollywood and social media (2013)”

“Hell is eternal. There are no exit doors in hell.”
39:30 Alyssa Farah, daughter of Joseph Farah (WorldNetDaily, WND.com) condemned Nick Fuentes in a 3/1/21 tweet to homosexual politician and activist Richard Grenell for saying we have to stand for Christian values, calling standing up for God a “scam.”

Abortion on demand is straight out of the Talmud. Our laws, our court decisions are Talmudic. They’re no longer based on the Christian Bible. They’re based on the Talmud.

“There are a lot of people in our country now who want to reject capitalism and freedom and the free market, and they want to go with government control. They’re more interested in ‘Mother Earth’ than humankind. They worship the creation, not the Creator.” – Dan Fagan on The Dan Fagan Show 2/16/21
9:00 Mr. Rogers interviews the lady who played the Wicked Witch of the West in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in 1975. He then tells the children: “girls and boys like to play witches, and when you feel like as if you’d like to play something a little bit scary, the witch is a fine thing to play.”
While many believe the 2021 Super Bowl halftime show by The Weekend was nothing to be concerned about, we take a look behind the curtain to reveal what is really behind the artists who perform each year. Learn how Satan has been using the Super Bowl halftime shows to deceive millions of unsuspecting fans with so-called entertainment.
Good Fight Ministries has released several videos over the past several years exposing the artists who perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. We recap some of these artists, take a look at The Weekend, and reveal how Tom Brady and his wife are involved in the occult.
Jerry Mungadze tells some of his experiences where he was discriminated against, and how he handled it. Then says:
10:10 “To my people, the biggest thing I have to say is: we cannot hang onto the pain of discrimination and slavery forever, because if we do, we get stuck, because it’s not going to hurt them. They’re not going to lose sleep over it. It’s us who carry that bitterness to where you suspect every white person to look down on you when they really don’t.”
14:10 “In our community as black people, we can’t keep saying ‘white people, you need to change; you need to change the way you treat us. We have to change ourselves. Because we do have our racist thoughts too, and we have to overcome those.”

In 2014, resistivity scans were done on Noah’s Ark by John Larsen of New Zealand, assisted by Randall Lee of Tennessee. This was the first real research done since the work by Ron Wyatt in the 80’s which led to it’s acceptance by Turkey as Noah’s Ark. In this part 1, Mary Nell Wyatt Lee takes the viewer on a tour of the ark as the work is in progress. It begins with the long hike down to the ark from the Visitors Center, then explores the entire ark. Mary Nell’s commentary was videoed onsite. This is especially for those who would like to see the entire ark site and understand the remains. It also shows the scans in progress and explains briefly how they work to later provide a 3d image of the entire ship. The results of the scans will be explored in Part 2.
PLEASE NOTE that I made an error in math when I was filming- This took place in 2014. When I went to the spot that the mini excavation took place in 1990, mistakenly said it was “14 years” ago (from 2014) when it was actually 24 years ago.
“You have to be willing to be hated.”
“Are you just someone who goes through life and wants to be as popular as can be, and you’ll say whatever you have to say to make sure that you’re liked by the most people? It’s very tempting to be wanted to be liked.”
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:11-12
“You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake, but he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.” – Mark 13:13
“Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall exclude and mock you, and throw out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake. Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven, for their fathers did the same thing to the prophets.” – Luke 6:22-23

Exceptionally wise and pertinent words to overcome during these deceptive last days!
NOTES I TRANSCRIBED:
“The deception in these last days is overwhelming.”
“The enemy’s … primary weapon is subtle deception. He comes at us with carefully crafted arguments that stir up our emotions, and he often mixes in a little truth into the lies he promotes, causing us to question our God-given instinct. He comes back again and again until we are offended and angry. He knows that an offended person has compromised judgment.”
“The media has become the most powerful vehicle of lies, evil and confusion of our time. … And if you disagree with them you become ridiculed, hated, slandered.”
“We must stop and question the information being planted in our hearts and minds. We must each investigate the other side of the story.”
Romans 16:18 “By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.” BSB
The Bible says numerous times “take heed that no one deceives you.”
“If we are moved by feelings and feed on lies how are we to discern the truth” as the delusion increases with more serious birth pain events?
We should ask ourselves in humility:
• Have I been siding with evil?
• Do I really want to know the truth?
• Am I offended?
• Has my heart been hardened?
• Has my love gone cold?
“Anything else should be questioned. This [lays his hand on the Bible] is God’s truth.”
We need to do a rethink: idolatry and ‘The Pledge. What happens when the nation disobeys God?
It’s dangerous to pledge allegiance to any manmade political power, since their dictates often become reverse-Christian, such as our post-9/11 regime-change wars and much of what the CIA does covertly.
Children should be taught to pledge allegiance to God instead, Who will always lead us into doing what is right.
Hitler replaced religious youth programs with the Hitler Youth (like the Boy Scouts, but on steroids), to teach children to obey him without question. Most German Lutherans then did obey Hitler instead of the Holy Spirit, when instead of defending Germany on German soil, Hitler immorally abused Germans’ loyalty by invading foreign countries unnecessarily, turning the world against Germany, which got Germany destroyed, exactly what Satan wanted. And this includes his invasions of Poland and Russia, which true history proves.
Hitler locked up the main Catholic leader in the Dachau prison who refused to shut down the Catholic youth program.
War should be last resort only:

2020 IN REVIEW: THE BIG PICTURE
How did this false pandemic happen?
Let me assure you this phony pandemic didn’t destroy our liberty overnight. Its conditions were set decades ago when we allowed the lure of free public education to capture America’s children and systematically indoctrinate them in social justice, political correctness, evolution, and false promises of what government power can do to create equality and a more “just world,” without freedom and judgment.

“Boondocks” Cartoon tells the TRUTH about Pagan Christmas!
Cartoons often reveal the truth in plain sight, but most people ignore it thinking its “jokes”….This one here explains how Christmas had nothing to do with Christ & how those lost in the world, blinded by satan, simply cant hear the truth, and always seem to only focus on what the TV says rather than their own family or friend with a sound mind, like the grandpa in this clip!!! PLEASE Stop celebrating wicked traditions of men that The Holy Bible says NOT to.
There isn’t a mask big enough to protect us from everything going on in the world today. We need to suit up with the whole armor of God.
JP red pilling many, brilliantly!
JP sings: “It’s beginning to look a lot like communism, everywhere you go.”
“This year, the holidays are just going to be different.Instead of getting together with your friends and family in person, and risking the transmission of joy, love and connection, you are to practice socialism distancing.”
“Tis the season….”
“In this Christmas video you’ll learn how you can enjoy a communist Christmas. It’s the new normal! Your holiday plans should include no plans, wearing a mask, staying in your home, social distancing, and poverty. Have a very merry communist Christmas!”
“For a number of years now, we’ve made it socially illegal for you to say ‘Merry Christmas.’ We’ve exchanged it with ‘Happy Holidays,’ and you went with it. Thank you for helping our efforts to erase religion, because you can’t have communism with freedom of religion. We wouldn’t people following the Lord’s guidance over our guidance.” “And all churches are closed for the foreseeable future. I love a good coincidence.”
PROBLEM > REACTION > SOLUTION: “They’ve [your government] scared you, so you’re scared, and now they’re protecting you from what they told you to be scared of.”
Dan Fagan: “Any party or movement that will fight for the right of an abortionist to kill a vulnerable, innocent baby while they’re living comfortably and peacefully in the sanctuary of their mother’s womb would certainly be capable of stealing an election.” “If they’re willing to support something that evil, certainly, fixing an election is nothing to them.”

1:23:13 “Over and over again in Revelation 18, the Bible repeats the fact that Babylon will be destroyed in one hour. And it will be destroyed with fire…. A nuclear attack fits this description perfectly, and it would happen immediately…, within one hour’s time.” – Anderson
