Woman Attacks APD Officer Steals Police Car

My report from yesterday:

This Thanksgiving pray for Albuquerque……..give thanks for all Police, Fire, EMT’s, they face hell everyday in our city. They work so very hard to protect us, they put their lives on the line for us everyday!

This should never happen….you go out in your driveway and get shot to death….

Spiritual Warfare is going on in ABQ!

“We’ve had enough. We’re tired of repeat offenders being released back into society,” Kevin Dieguez said.

Kevin’s Mother, Jacqueline Vigil, was shot and killed in her own driveway last week in Albuquerque. Crime is so out of control in the city. Please pray for the safety of all. We are so very grateful for our Police, Fire and EMT’s. Please be safe, there is no safe neighborhood in Albuquerque, crime has no zip code. Many gathered yesterday to remember the life of Jacqueline. KOB TV REPORT

The Word of God calls the mind of a natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4 “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic  sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs it’s thoughts. The sinful mind is under control of Satan. So many in ABQ are controlled by Satan. Drugs and booze are destroying them and our city.

Just this morning in ABQ KDAZ Radio News Director Frank Haley Reports:

ALBUQUERQUE   —     Not long after a mother called 911 to report that her son had just been shot in the back as he slept in his bed, dispatchers received reports that two more people, a man and a woman, had arrived at a hospital with gunshot wounds.
Police believe the man and woman were shot when a dispute in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park erupted in gunfire just before 3 a.m. Sunday. They believe the teenager was hit when a stray bullet went through the wall of his home.
The teen’s father took him to a local hospital where he is in critical but stable condition. The man and woman suffered injuries that are not life-threatening.
This shooting caps a week marked by violence.
In the span of 48 hours, starting Tuesday morning, a 55-year-old mother was shot to death in the driveway of her home, a man was shot eight times leaving him in critical condition and another man was killed in a fight.
Both shootings also occurred on Albuquerque’s West Side.

People are sick and tired of crime in the city. It is a heart issue, we need to carry of the Great Commission, changing hearts for Jesus, soften harden hearts. Drugs and booze are feeding this hell. More police will help a bit, but they cannot predict crime, it is a heart issue, I have stressed this for years, Albuquerque needs missionaries to go into the depths of hell and share Jesus! We are in Spiritual Warfare, more below……….

You can’t regulate morality.

Last week was a week of hell in Albuquerque:

ABQ Mayor Tim Keller on Violent Crime

 

From Yesterday: Sharon and I are in deep mourning for the family, for the New Mexico State Police, for all of the people who live in Albuquerque.

It is 4 am Wednesday morning……it has started to rain…..tears from Heaven falling on Albuquerque…….

How do you report this story? First of all Albuquerque is very unsafe, we have to admit this!  Satan is roaming the streets of Albuquerque and having his way with many, it is a horrible situation, with no end in sight to these murderous actions. Albuquerque is about to set a tragic, very tragic record for homicides. When I first heard this news I thought of my Sharon who leaves home early every morning for work, I am always out in the driveway with her and she leaves. I lay my hands on her and pray for her safety, I have done this for several years. I keep thinking about this lovely lady and her sons. Can you imagine? ABQ Journal Report

UPDATED 6:47AM Wed. ABQ Suffers 72nd Homicide

Our deep prayers of love are with the family and the New Mexico State Police.

At one point this year things got so bad that the Governor called in the State Police to patrol Albuquerque. This month the State Police were called into Belen to help the local police with violent crime. Many towns in New Mexico have a huge problem with violence in their communities.

I pray that the City of Albuquerque stops and mourns.

Albuquerque ranks among nation’s top 10 most dangerous big cities

I have been in news on and off since 1979. I have never seen such a horrific situation as what is going on here in Albuquerque. Killing after killing, violent crime, robberies, assaults, children being murdered, abortions, drug addiction deaths, drunk driving deaths, cars stolen, homes and businesses being broken into, some repeatedly! We have a friend whose home was broken into 7 times, they moved to Arizona.

I get ask by my friends in Reserve to move there or to move back to my hometown of Windom, Minnesota. We would love to! But the Lord has us planted here for now. Sharon and I know God has us here in Albuquerque for His purpose. Many of our friends from out-of-state say that we are missionaries to this land here, God has us planted here to shine his light to one person at a time.

We are in a very dangerous situation here in Albuquerque, If you live here please take all precautions. We are not even safe in our own driveways. This horrible killing happened in a very nice neighborhood near us. Crime has no zip code.

This was the 71st homicide in Albuquerque this year, surpassing last year’s total of 69 homicides. The highest number in recent history was in 2017, when there were 72.

I have never lived in a town where people have told me directly that they don’t go to Albuquerque anymore because of all the violence. To hear that for the first time really hit me, but as time goes on, I understand. I visit widows who have nowhere to move to, they are afraid for their lives here in Albuquerque. TRUTH!

ABQ Woman Charged With Stabbing Her Wife to Death

Just remember you cannot legislate morality, it is a heart issue. Hearts given to JESUS!

We are in a Spiritual crisis not only New Mexico but America, it is not a political crisis it is Spiritual warfare. We are a country now, where many have made politics their God. Sadly, people think politics will solve our problems, that is so very wrong. Politics is wrecking our Country. Politics in America is mired down in thick mud slop.

The Truth About Spiritual Warfare

I mourn for the city of Albuquerque for what it has become, so very violent and life is not valued, either through shootings or abortion. Killing so many of God’s children.

This will not change until hearts are changed for Jesus. We must reach the lost.

Politics is not the answer, Jesus is………..

This is what happens when we do not have the minds of Christ. When we are not grounded in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Too much of the world struggles with the “natural mind” The thinking process that is limited to human reason and resources. Human history shows that the natural mind becomes progressively self-destructive if left to it’s own desires. People who are directed by their natural minds walk in darkness and have incorrect thinking.
“So I tell you this, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.” Eph 4:17,18
The Word of God calls the mind of a natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4 “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic  sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs it’s thoughts. The sinful mind is under control of Satan.
This why we must share the light of Jesus Christ to one person at a time……..what I just shared with you is why so many of the folks in Washington struggle!
Let us all be Christ like in all we do, to have the mind of Christ! Let us strive to be Salt and Light!
From Pastor Don Kimbro:

“The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields” (Matthew 9:37-38).

I have been a pastor for more than forty years. In the process I have started churches, led existing churches, mentored new believers and pastors, shared the gospel on the mission field, taught Arabs in Israel, worked for a well-known parachurch ministry to prisons and have started several new ministries, including one as a chaplain to auto racers. Zoom. Zoom.

But there’s one thing I have learned that stands out above everything else and that is that the ministry of the church is first and foremost to proclaim, teach, preach and share the gospel wherever we are and wherever we go to every person who will listen.

I don’t believe there are any exemptions to this calling. It is not the sole domain of the offices of the church, the apostles, prophets, evangelists or pastors and teachers (Ephesians 4:11-12). It doesn’t make any difference whether you are male or female, young or old, rich or poor, professional or blue collar, sophisticated or otherwise, a new believer or old salt, married or single, retired or just beginning your career. If you are a true believer and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s calling on your life is to spread the good news about what Jesus did for you through his death, burial and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-11).

These final instructions were on the heart of our Savior as he met with his disciples during the forty days he was on the earth between his resurrection and ascension into heaven. His mandate to them was what we call the Great Commission or evangelism, which is winning the lost by preaching the gospel. The specific directions consisted of five different statements Jesus made in this regard and which he commanded his disciples to inaugurate after his departure. And they did. Aren’t we glad!

Here are those five statements Jesus gave to his followers, first in Jerusalem, then in Galilee and finally at the Mount of Olives. I call them the Message, the Model, the Magnitude, the Method and the Means.*

The Message
And he said, “Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah would suffer and die and rise from the dead on the third day. It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ You are witnesses of all these things. — Luke 24:46-48

Notice the emphasis on repentance and forgiveness of sins and proclaiming that message to all nations.

The Model
So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent me, I also send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” — John 20:21-23

Notice the emphasis on sending out the disciples and receiving the Holy Spirit and to teach God’s forgiveness and judgment.

The Magnitude
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
— Mark 16:15-18

Notice the emphasis on going into all the world and preaching to everyone and the signs that would follow those who believed.

The Method
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. — Matthew 28:18-20

Notice the emphasis on going to all nations, baptizing and making disciples by teaching them his commandments.

The Means
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. — Acts 1:8-9

Notice the emphasis on receiving the power of the Holy Spirit to witness and then going to the end of the earth to do it.

Every true believer and every church that exists is commissioned to follow in the footsteps of these first disciples. We have been given our instructions. How are we doing? Maranatha!

*Dr. Marvin J. Newell, Commissioned, pp. 23-25.

To help us walk closer with God and to know Him better.

Do not show an unbelieving world what it wants to see. Let us all exhibit Godly behavior.

 I have said for years that we are in deep trouble in this Country, that of course includes the Church. So many do not know God! I have called for the Church to carry out The Great Commission in the love of Jesus! America needs missionaries right here!!!!!!! The Church needs to get down to the business of God and not the business of man and politics. I say that politics has become a religion too many…..that is very, very sad! Too many worship politicians and not God. I asked this question last night of all of us: The WW II Generation is said to be our greatest generation ever! What will we be remembered for? The downfall of America? Now let is hear From Man of God Dr. Denison:

The “spiritual but not religious” movement

I could go on: scientists don’t really know why gravity exists, how plate tectonics work, or how animals migrate so successfully.

My purpose is not to criticize scientists, but to point out the inherent limitations of science. And my purpose in pointing out such limitations is not to criticize science, but to remind us that all humans are finite creatures in need of truth and wisdom only our Creator can supply.

Here’s why this theme is on my mind today.

It was my privilege to deliver the T. B. Maston Lectures at Baptist University of the Américas (BUA) in San Antonio this week. I believe strongly in BUA’s crucial mission and the leadership of its outstanding president, Dr. Abe Jaquez.

His faculty asked me to discuss the popularity of the “spiritual but not religious” movement, an urgent and timely topic. A Pew Research Center study reports that only 48 percent of Americans now consider themselves to be both “religious and spiritual,” while 18 percent say they are “neither religious nor spiritual.” But 27 percent say they are “spiritual but not religious.” Their number has grown nearly 50 percent in recent years.

By comparison, Pew Research Center estimates America’s evangelical population to be 25.4 percent. The Baptist population is 15.4 percent. According to an authoritative study, only 20.4 percent of the US population attends church on any given week.

This means there are more “spiritual but not religious” Americans than Americans who attended church last Sunday.

“There was no king in Israel.”

A major reason why so many Americans choose to be spiritual but not religious is that they think they no longer need religion to be spiritual. It is conventional wisdom in our postmodern culture that truth is personal and subjective. There is no such thing as “truth,” only “your truth” and “my truth.”

We are therefore all equally able to discern spiritual truth for ourselves without need of divine revelation from a divine Creator. Or so we’re told.

How’s this working for us?

The theme of the book of Judges is the theme of our culture: “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). In a true kingdom, the king is the final authority on all subjects. His declaration is truth, his word inviolate.

Throughout Scripture, we are told that our God is such a king. Jesus called us to “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). He taught us to “seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness” (Matthew 6:33). We are to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). We are creatures in desperate need of truth only our Creator can provide.

It has been well said: To get along with God, stay off his throne.

How to know if God is your king

When last did you enthrone Jesus as king of your life?

Here’s a practical way to answer the question: We make God our king to the degree that we do what he says whether we want to or not. If he is our counselor or father, we can ignore his direction. If he is our king, we must do whatever he tells us to do.

So, I’ll ask again: When last did you make Jesus your king?
