I am currently writing the final chapters of Fidelity to Hope. It is the summer of 2021. If you have read Forgotten Hope, then you are aware that I started my writing and the accompanying effort to make it visible from a politically heavy, yet God based position. You also know that a few years ago a transition happened that was the result of a personal choice and, I believe, a Spiritual direction. I closed the “We the 9/12 People” website and all associated social media activity. I Stopped “looking into the Darkness (of the world) trying to see the Light.” I continued my personal Pursuit of Character and began the publicly visible PursuitofCharacter.org presence.
As The Hope Series has been coming to an end, and by end I mean a beginning, I have made another personal choice which I also believe follows Spiritual direction. As you read through The Hope Series, you will come to understand my belief that since the beginning (of me), God has been molding a force for His Will. This molding has taken the form of “allowing the Adversary” his temptations and God’s use of those “Tests.” From this activity God, has forged an obedient and useful servant. The point is this: “God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) This does not mean that all things are good or that the “good” referenced has anything to do with the physical world, the world of the Nephesh. God’s purpose is always Spiritual!
God taught me a lot in my trials as a kid, a student, a young man, the head of a household, a member “in” the community of the world, and as a sibling “of” the fellowship of God. As someone who “Loves Him,” what is the point of all this experience, this teaching, if, when “called,” I do not use it for “His purpose”? It is this instruction to use the attained wisdom He provided that has manifested in some recent activity, the posts of which are listed below. This week I have listened to some who have chosen to take up the political fight in God’s name and have put out the call for others who Claim the Name to join. I am not returning to that politically heavy fight, but I do recognize how my direction aligns with theirs. I also recognize, as represented in both PursuitofCharacter.org and The Hope Series, that most who Claim the Name do not Walk the Walk as actually taught in the Manual. Building an army of the Faithless who proclaim the “Living God” but hide in the trenches with Saul and without God’s Armor will not serve God’s purpose.
I have come to understand that this is the purpose of all we do at Pursuit of Character, LLC. Whether through the website, The Hope Series, the Worship through Song ministry, or the other “steps” on the path God puts before us, “The Armor” is our cause. We teach, and will continue to teach more boldly, that nothing other than God… not our politics, our denominations, our careers, or even our lives… can be our religion. But, as those who Claim the Name, none of these can be without our Religion. The false doctrine that God or His messengers taught “the separation” of Christianity and anything is a weakness that His Church cannot afford in these times. It is a man-made flaw in our armor that does not exist in His Armor. Like David, we reject and throw off this armor of man. We get out of the trenches and enter the battlefield fully dressed in The Armor of the Living God, and we will teach all who will “See” and all who will “Hear” to do the same.
Therefore, we are bringing back the logo for “We the 9/12 People” updated to reflect this part of our calling. While this symbol has the appearance of “America,” it acknowledges a Truth that is not bound by borders or parties. It exists in America, China, Hungary, and everywhere on and beyond God’s Created world. Everyone born into this world is brought into it as one of God’s Creations, and, as such, are “Born Free.” However, like Adam, we must choose this Freedom or choose the enslavement “of” the Adversary’s world. If “We the Endowed People” embrace this Truth, then we are Free indeed and no dictator, politician, or false prophet can take that away!
Your Brother “of” The Fellowship,
