“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph. 6:12


Dear Partners and Prayer Warriors,

     While driving and running errands, I saw a man with red hair and a very full, thick beard wearing a head scarf, a dress,  and walking like a woman. All I could think about was how much conflict and torment this man must be in and it hurt my heart.  I could almost feel the torment of this man as I drove by and the conflict of dressing and walking like a woman and yet having a very thick red beard of a man.  As I prayed for God to protect him, I asked that his eyes be opened to see the evil that is entertaining his soul and severing his spirit. My thoughts then wandered into questions like has he ever been married?  Still married?  Does he have children?  What happened to him to be at this station in life? What do his parents and extended family think?  It would have been so easy to ridicule and or to condemn this man that looks odd and who needs Jesus but all I could do is pray!


     I am reminded all too often of God’s Word and how we are to love people. Scripture does not say that we must like people and the things they do or the demons that seem to be in charge of their lives. It does say that we are to love them. To do this we must remember that literally everything is spirit. God gave to us a free will to choose life or death in every decision we, as humans, make. Sad to say there are those who have not ever been taught to choose life or, they have believed a lie of the enemy that they were born to a lifestyle that is NOT IN LINE WITH God’s Truth for their lives.  This deception is Satan’s way of trying to make God a liar. It brings with it confusion and distraction so the deception goes on TO GIVE the appearance that the war is between people by the way we see others and quite possibly judge something we know nothing about.


Text Box:   By all appearances, it would seem our country is IN THE SAME CONDITION AS the man I described above. We are in conflict and tormented by the decisions that have been made in the past, one choice at a time. We have allowed the enemy to divide us on so many fronts: Church vs. State, racism, gun control, abortion, and the list goes on. We keep looking at our government to do something instead of hitting our knees in prayer.  We have forgotten that this is spirit driven and therefore have come against one another in the flesh. We mock, criticize, condemn, and are critical of one another who look, think, and do things differently. SO here is the challenge:  What do we do about those that are in dire straits spiritually and need correction through truth and love? Is that not a missionary’s journey? We have all been chosen to go throughout the world and preach the Gospel. How will the lost know what the truth is unless we proclaim and declare the Word of God to those who are lost, deceived and or simply misled because they were never taught? (Disclaimer: I am not talking about those who know and are walking in blatant rebellion and disobedience.)  As a whole, we need to do better at missions right here in our own cities, states and nation as well as overseas!

Text Box:       The beginning of the United States of America started with a bunch of pilgrims fleeing religious persecution from Europe to tame a land they soon claimed for themselves. Eventually they set forth a Declaration Of Independence from England and wrote it down, signed it and then fought for it for seven years before declaring victory of the Revolutionary War. Fifty-six people in all signed the Declaration of Independence and then so began organizing and putting together a new government for a new country and the writing of The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.


Text Box:   As both Father’s Day and our Independence Day approaches, take time to reflect upon what our Heavenly Father did through the U.S. Founding Fathers:  Freedom to  preach the Gospel, heal the sick, restore the broken-hearted, minister to those in need and remember that the battle is spirit and not flesh!


We want to thank each of you for being watchers on the wall for us and for your financial partnerships. We love what we get to do for the Kingdom and what you do with us makes that possible. We pray blessings and favor over each of you!


In God We Trust.

Love and Blessings,

Pastors Doug & Lisa Barber




Our hope is that you have a happy Father’s Day and a wonderful Independence Day celebration.
