Operation Nehemiah: Pastor Education Program

Country Church

NOW MORE THAN EVER, CHURCH WAKE UP!

And He said to them, ‘But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one.’” – Luke 22:36
** Under Roman occupation, the Jews were not allowed to be armed unless they served as guard at the Temple Grounds.

Objective: To raise awareness and educating pastors and the church regarding the God-given right to the bearing of arms, biblical understanding of self-protection and defending our communities.

Summary: “Sheep dogs” commonly references those who are considered first and second responders in emergencies from laymen to hired personnel that include firefighters, peace officers, military, body guards, and security, to name a few. Guardians throughout history were prepared to lay down their lives in the protection of others; especially, their loved ones. In our illustrious 6,000 year history, our Lord has had his sheep dogs that follow and obey the shepherd. These men and women servants are sent to answer the call from those who say “God will protect me” (who were not prepared).

Today, men in our churches seem inadequately informed or trained given church history and references in the Bible, the current state of affairs and dangers, and few understand their roles and responsibilities in their duty to protect themselves, their families and to be of service in their communities to ensure safe environments. In general, sheep dogs would not dare harm the sheep and live to confront the wolf, and obey the commands of their shepherd. The sheep in general are fearful of them, because they do look and sound like the wolf that bears its teeth and barks or growls.

This initiative will normalize the public at large to understand and value the sheepdogs within the church and outside of it, the protector class.

Jesus had a high regard for the Centurion who was under arms:
“When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” – Luke 7:9
* Under Roman occupation, touching Roman Soldier would have been a punishable offense to include death.  Why did this Roman Centurion allow Jesus to touch him?

Pertaining to those who bear arms and those in authority:

” . . . for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.” Romans 13:4
* if you bear arms, it is part of your ministry.  Not for everyone, but for those who are called to be protectors (men of the church).

Considerations:
• Reach out to pastors to help them produce sermons that educate on self-protection,
• Produce materials to support this education process (i.e., pamphlets, brochures, videos, PowerPoints, symposiums, and more),
• Press and media alerts,
• Case studies and profiles on churches who have adopted best-practices in regards to church security and allowing members to be armed in the church (openly and concealed),
• Speakers and presenters,
• Training and events,
• Other to be discussed.

You have permission to be a Sheep Dog. Ask your pastor to grant permission to the rest of the Sheep Dogs in your congregation. Why are pastor’s silent on critical issues of our day? This video was shot live at the beginning of the Covid-19 Lockdown in March of 2020.  Time to stand.

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” – Matthew 10:16
