Further research into the video posted by this Australian MP indicates she seems to have incorrectly interpreted the Commission’s ruling that she cites. Upon my reading the document outlining this decision and further reflection, her optimism, in my opinion, does not seem warranted. Please take what she says with that appropriate grain of salt.

***A special thanks to my co-writer, Gary Ritter, for helping me with this post. You are such a great brother in Christ!

Australian Member of Parliament, Tanya Davis, is reading from a ruling that was just handed down from Fair Work Commission’s decision that declares mandatory jabs as a condition of employment to be against the law. The ruling states that politicians pushing for mandatory “vaccinations” are not doing so to protect public health.

This ruling can effectively have the effect of ending Covid-Tyranny in Australia, and hopefully be the first legal victory that’ll initiate a domino effect that will bring this nightmare to an end around the world.

This is HUGE, Patriots.
Let’s make it go VIRAL
We Are The News Now, so let’s do our duty


A small victory, but a victory nonetheless!

Hallelujah and MARANATHA!!

“The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry”

Brethren, you will never forget this movie. I thought that in these uncertain times we are in, that “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry” would be a movie to make our hearts glad, and our spirits soar.

Praise You Jesus. We adore You!

“The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime,
And in the night His song shall be with me—
A prayer to the God of my life”

Ecclesiastes 3:11 – He Has Put Eternity Into Man’s Heart

Gary W. Ritter

(Ecclesiastes 1-3; 2 Corinthians 9)

King Solomon – the Preacher in Ecclesiastes – had an astounding gift from God.  Because at the time of his ascension to the throne, he was humble and asked nothing for himself, God gave him the wisdom of the ages.  No one, before or since, has had the wisdom of Solomon.  It’s a strange thing, though, that happened to him.  In this expansive gift beyond what any man had ever known, Solomon determined in his heart to better know the things and ways of the world rather than the things of God.

He had a choice.  Solomon could have pursued God with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength.  Instead, he pursued the pleasures of the flesh.  In so doing, he found much disappointment.  By seeking out every delight in the world that God had made, Solomon acquired great knowledge about the earth and all that was in it.  The record he left for us in Ecclesiastes attests to this.  But, consider the disappointment he had!  Throughout all his searching in every corner of God’s creation, he ultimately found futility.

The interesting aspect of this is that regardless of whether someone was considered wise or a fool, he ended up in the same place.  Of course, it was always better to be a wise man during one’s life, but if at the end of his life, he went to Sheol not knowing God, was there any real point in his wisdom?

Solomon gave us much to consider in his reminiscences of life.  He found that history essentially repeats itself, as he pointed out in Ecclesiastes 1:9:

What has been is what will be,

    and what has been done is what will be done,

    and there is nothing new under the sun.

Because of this repetitive understanding of man’s past to his present, this has given rise to some interesting studies and concepts.  One that I’ve found particularly interesting is in a book called The Fourth Turning by Straus & Howe:  The authors studied history and found that there are repetitive cycles of 80-100 years in duration.  Each cycle has four roughly 20-year components the authors call turnings.  They can be likened to the four seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.  Without making this a book review, the most fascinating season (for me) is the Fourth Turning.  It has dire consequences for society and essentially results in the death of that society, or nation, just like winter kills off old plant life to prepare the way for new growth in the spring, i.e. the First Turning.

On first glance one might say this has similarities to the Eastern concept of reincarnation, and that might be true at a surface level.  However, from the Biblical perspective, we know that the actuality is the earth and everything in it is moving linearly.  As we travel in Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, we see that the meta-narrative of God is one of perfection to destruction back once more to perfection.  As Solomon put it: What has been is what will be.

I think that the Preacher’s next statement in Ecclesiastes 1:11 effectively accounts for the cyclical nature of history:

There is no remembrance of former things,

    nor will there be any remembrance

of later things yet to be

    among those who come after.

Man has a wonderfully corrupt way of forgetting what has previously occurred throughout his existence.  George Orwell in his book 1984 described the idea as a memory hole.  Wikipedia notes: “A memory hole is any mechanism for the deliberate alteration or disappearance of inconvenient or embarrassing documents, photographs, transcripts or other records, such as from a website or other archive, particularly as part of an attempt to give the impression that something never happened.”  In Orwell’s 1984, the nation had a policy of purposefully forgetting the past so that it could shape the thoughts of its citizens to what it wanted with no remembrance of how things previously were, and how they may have been better.  None of that mattered.  Thus, as Solomon says: There is no remembrance of former things.  Although man in general may not be so deliberate with erasing his past as in Orwell’s book, the general trend of history encompasses this forgetfulness, which leads to the repetitive cycles that Straus and Howe document.

In the wisdom God gave Solomon, he perceived all this.  For most of his life, it didn’t matter.  God gave him the liberty to do what he would with his freedom of choice.  Sadly, as probably most of us would likewise do, he didn’t do a very good job at it.  His searching took him far from God.  Only at the end of his life did he come to his senses and realize how stupendously foolish he was and how he had squandered this gift from God.  The good thing in all this is that he left this record for us to see what happens to someone who pursues a dissolute lifestyle.  As Solomon states several times as in Ecclesiastes 2:26:

… This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

At the end of the book, we’ll see Solomon’s further conclusions, but the key for us today is contained in Ecclesiastes 3:11:

… Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart … 

All of the striving that we do in our human condition is because of this.  It goes to that famous God-shaped hole each of us has that can only be filled with the salvation that only comes through a true relationship with Jesus Christ.  It’s why history goes round and round.  Man seeks to fill that hole with everything found under the sun in this world, but he cannot.  Without the knowledge of Christ, our ending is exactly what Solomon chronicles in Ecclesiastes 3:20:

All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.

In the absence of Christ in our lives, we simply return to that place of our origin.  Man goes to the grave and decomposes into dust.  His soul goes to a place of eternal torment without God.  All is hopeless and lost.  It’s a dreary ending.

But God… The Lord has given us hope that is found in Him alone.  In Christ we escape the eventual conclusion that is part and parcel of mankind’s existence without knowing Jesus.  This is the joy we have.  We transcend the ways of man by embracing all that God has for us.  Solomon found this out at the end of his life.  We have the opportunity to do so much earlier, and to live in God’s presence through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

His way is higher and better than ours.  When we turn to the Lord Jesus, everything changes.  Let us not be like Solomon and squander what God has given us.  Let us live for God and rejoice in Him now.

REPOST: Because of Billy Graham – My Jewish Dad is in Heaven

“And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31:8).

Some of the most anxiety producing moments are when we want to share the Gospel with our own family. I always pray that the Lord will open doors with those people whom I meet, so that I will be able to speak of His love and mercy and forgiveness. But those who know us from when we were very young are especially tough. Have you felt that too?

Remember when Jesus said:

“So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house” (Matthew 13:57)

Maybe that is true for all of us. People who watched us grow up, and knew our weaknesses and faults, may feel like “Who is she to be saying these things to me!?”

Being from a Jewish family presented obstacles, to say the least. We were told that Jesus was not our Messiah – period. But my dad would talk about Jesus when I was young. He would say that he was a good man – a prophet – and if the world lived by His teachings, it would be a better place to live. BUT – He wasn’t who he said he was. So, a good man lies?

I used to wonder how my dad knew about the things that Jesus said. We didn’t have any New Testaments in our home. I never asked him, but I did wonder. Perhaps along life’s way, someone planted seeds in my dad’s heart. The story I will tell you in this piece about my dad, would seem to support that he had someone share the Gospel with him when he was younger. Maybe it was during WWII when he felt so vulnerable. Only God knows.


In 1995, mom and dad retired to Florida, like many Jewish older people do. I began to write to dad and send him books about Jesus. I sent him a book called “Betrayed” which I highly recommend to anyone sharing Christ with a Jewish person. I wrote about the Lord and what He was doing in my life. He wrote back to me and told me that he was proud that one of his kids cared about the Ten Commandments. That wasn’t exactly what I hoped he would say, but it was a start. I keep that letter in my Bible, and bring it out occasionally. It is precious to me.

As I said, I had witnessed a lot to him through the years. He would upset the rest of the family by watching Billy Graham Crusades whenever they were on TV. When my mom would tell me this, she didn’t know that I treasured knowing that, and it left a big smile on my face.

Dad had a lot of pain in his neck. Mom called one day and said that dad was considering neck surgery. He was a diabetic and people who have this illness do not heal like regular people. I told mom that I didn’t think it was a good idea. Nevertheless, they went through with the surgery and the doctor botched it badly; so badly, that they had to come back up to Maryland. They were going to see a surgeon at a hospital up here.

When I first saw my dad, I was shocked. The doctor had done something during the surgery, which rendered my father unable to hold his head up straight. It lay on one shoulder. I wept when I saw him like this.

He had another surgery to fix that one, but it did not work. Dad was beginning to physically fall apart. It tore my heart to pieces. He began to experience dementia. The nurses explained that metabolic processes were all messed up because of the diabetes, and all the medicines they had him on. I could tell that he was deteriorating.

Even though I was always considered the lesser of the daughters – especially when I told the family that I believed in Jesus as our Messiah, during his last week on this earth, he would tell my mom that he wanted only to see me. This greatly angered my sisters.

Every night after work, I would go and visit him. One night he told me that I was his strongest daughter. He had never said anything like that to me before. Each time I would visit, I could tell that he was going downhill. Finally, my older sisters decided to withhold food and water, and allow him only a morphine drip. He was placed in a hospice-like room in a nursing home. He didn’t get many visitors. It was almost like they were just waiting for him to die.

On that last night, he was going in and out of consciousness. There was no one there visiting him except for me. I held his hand and asked him to squeeze my hand if he wanted me to lead him to Jesus. He squeezed. I led him in prayer, stopping every so often to ask if he understood the prayer, and he would squeeze my hand. I went through the entire prayer of repentance and salvation.

After I got home, the phone rang and it was my oldest sister. She said that dad had passed away. I knew that he was in heaven with Jesus! Hallelujah!!

Thank You Jesus! I can’t wait to see my dad again.



Brethren, Don’t EVER give up on any of your loved ones. Today I spoke with a sister in Christ who needed to hear this testimony about my dad. It was her elderly mom who would not trust Yeshua. She felt “hope” and knew that the Lord was working in her mom’s heart. We prayed together. It was such a sweet time!
