As we remembered and honored our fallen this Memorial Day it is vital, we understand why. 

This week is the anniversary of both Midway and D-Day. The Day of Days. Where everything changed.

As history fades and heroes die, it is now more than ever, important to be crystal clear about the kinetic details of selfless service. 

Not for the memory of the fallen. But the future of the living.

Midway was not a miracle. And neither was D-Day, even though the great Ernie Pyle said so. Old veterans rightly bristle while pious civilians remain puzzled. 

A miracle is a supernatural event, natures laws defied.

Providence is God intervening for us.

But because we were with God, God was with us.

When we act, so does God.

Providence not miracles, made and make the difference.

So, remember, never forget, then act.

Because today we face an even more dangerous enemy than in our past.

Pearl Harbor and the Nazi concentration camps once, revealed, made the enemy obvious. The threat clear. 

Now the enemy is ancient as the war but more subtle. George Orwell said all tyrannies subsist on fraud, and when the cover of fraud fails, they turn to force.

But today with the illiteracy and dumbing down in our schools,
synagogues and churches, its essential to understand the threat, and the rules of engagement.

If the Holy Bible is truth and history then we must learn from Red Earth Adam missing the mark when the Nahash seduces the Eve Mother of Life, by his inaction.

If we read between the lines in the great gaps of sparse scripture, he does not love Eve enough to intercede. To act.

Today big church confuses action and prayer, and I often have listeners who offer prayer. 

That is fine. But it is not enough. 

We must act. 

Because when we act, God acts. 

Through us. 

With us. 

And without us.

Often big church obsesses on downplaying action in favor of passive faith.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

If Yeshua was and is the Messiah, then note that only once does He say how to pray and then only when asked. His prayer in the garden precedes action.

His new commandments are love God and your neighbor with your all. This is often interpreted as passivity. Nothing is farther from the truth.
He says it quite clearly in John, “No greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

And He did. 

And when He did everything changed. In the garden He prayed. After that it was all about love in action. 

Pray then act.

Act in love, and providence will follow.

Providence means divine care, guidance or protection.

On D-Day the allies tried to plan for everything but they could not control the weather. But the worst storm in centuries first occluded the Nazis’ vision, then suddenly cleared allowing the landing.

Just as had happened at Dunkirk, the weather was unique, confounding the Nazis, while allowing British forces to survive to fight another day. 

Britain means covenant people. Because Churchill asked for and received a civilian convoy fleet to rescue trapped troops and spare the British navy.
Providence again.

And at Midway on June 6th, Japanese carrier scout planes launched at 4:35, 4:38, 4:42 pm but one left late at 5:00 pm.

That plane was the one that spotted the American fleet. But when the pilot radioed the position, the transmission failed!

Providence, again and again. 

We are called to no greater love, to suffer, accept the cup, bear the cross.
Pray, then act in faith.

Sacrifice in faith brings suffering.

Suffering in faith leads to salvation.

You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. – Mark 13:13

Freedom is taken.
Take it!

  1. Thanks for the insight !
    Another example : Washington and his Patriots took ACTION at the Delaware river on Christmas Eve/Day, and PROVIDENCE kept the Hessian troops drunk or asleep !

  2. I was 10 years old in 1944 listening to the invasion news. My uncle was a private in the 319th Glider Artillery Battalion, 82nd Airborne, landing in Normandy. Later he told stories of landing where the Germans had rigged cables between trees and having 88mm howitzers set up for direct fire with white phosphorous shells. He said they only had 10 to 15 seconds to clear the glider with their 76mm cannon and ammo. When he came home he brought me a German steel helmet, a Mauser 1898 8 mm rifle, an Italian Cavalry 6.5 mm rifle w/folding bayonet, and German marks. He has been an inspiration for me, and you are like a son to me, Jeff. I am a senior member of the Holy Family, Joseph, Jesus and Mary. They are real, live people who have lived with us since Jesus was born. Today they are cleansing the world of non-believers. When they die from the virus they begin their eternal punishment in Hell! Joseph is the Terror of demons. Satan is losing the battle, and we are going to triumph over all our enemies, both foreign and domestic✝️God bless you, Jeffrey, my brother and my son🙏🏻

  3. Thank you for the memorial day video. It was a very touching, and a reminder of the sacrifices made and that will be made for for our great nation.

  4. Just one comment. Yeshua did NOT bring a new commandment.

    “His new commandments are love God and your neighbor with your all.”
    That came straight out of the Torah. Remember when asked what the greatest commandment was he said these two things. On those two things hangs All the Law.

    Mark 12:29 “And Jesus answered him The first of all the commandments is Hear O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord.
    30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength this is the first commandment. 31. And the second is like namely this Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself There is none other commandment greater than these. “

    It comes from this:

    Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord. 5. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might.”

    And this:

    Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself I am the Lord.”

    You might have misspoken, and if so, I apologize. There are people who would read this. As no say, “Okay. Yeshua came up with his own commandments.” Many were never told these are in the Torah or God’s Law.

    I know. I know. Yeshua also said this:

    John 13:34 “A new commandment I give unto you That ye love one another as I have loved you that ye also love one another.”
    I would argue that ALL of God’s Law is made up of rules (statutes, judgments and commandments) that demonstrate to us HOW to love our neighbors.

    Yeshua came not to start a religion. He came to die so you and I could receive forgiveness for all our sins against His Father. Once we receive that payment for our sins, our slate of debt is cleared.
    God and Yeshua expect each of us to start keeping the commandments of God. For Israel in the past, they were to start again. For us today, we need to just start.

    How? Just read your Bible. Focus on the Five Books of Moses and learn them. If you will believe what is written, you will see where you have been lacking. Failing to keep the commandments IS SIN. PERIOD.

    1 John 3:4 “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law for sin is the transgression of the law.”

    Your church probably doesn’t teach this. This is the reason our country is in such a mess.

    This verse tells it plainly:

    Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because thou hast rejected knowledge I will also reject thee that thou shalt be no priest to me seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God I will also forget thy children.”

    We have ‘forgotten the Law of our God’.

    We need to RETURN.

  5. I observed in silence while my fellow citizens celebrated a somber, reflective day of the year with drunkenness, debauchery, unrestrained consumerism, and complete ignorance of the meaning of this holiday. Our fallen warriors gave all for this?

  6. Nothing like humbling the soul. Thank you brother Prather. I just shared with another the message you shared about the importance of God and then I opened my emails and there you were with this awesome video. It was also a reminder of how our cross stones had been removed as an attack against God and now from afar you can’t tell how many believers in God sacrificed their lives for their fellow american. That was a slap across my face as a reminder. Ultimately, it’s a spiritual war in the end. But we are aware of who wins in the end. Amen!

  7. A few comments.
    ***I very deeply appreciate this presentation. In a very real sense…We the People as American born citizens are the People of the Dead as per George Harrisons famous song with the line: “We the people of the dead.”
    ***William M. Thompson, possibly Americas greatest landscape artist, who was almost blinded in a mustard gas attack during WWI, may have taught us a way out of this UGLINESS. He focused the rest of his life on creating BEAUTY and helping the living.
    ***I consider WWI a turning point in a long history of UGLINESS and WARS extending from 1-AD up to NOW. The Crusades, the slaughter of indigenous people everywhere (some deserving it like the Aztecs) but most NOT deserving it like the American Indians….and including “things” like the Salem Witch Hunts which all too many like to forget…..ALL lend themselves to a LOSS OF FAITH…not in the Bible….but in the GOODNESS and BEAUTY of HUMAN NATURE. So now there is SUPER-UGLINESS everywhere these days. Human Nature is NOT EVIL….the INDIVIDUDAL MIS-USE of FREE WILL is EVIL.
    ***So WHY is WWI the turning point fast-tracking to MAD? Because “science” and “technology” turned to MUSTARD GAS and weapons of mass destruction. That occurred as a result of FREE WILL decisions in INDIVIDUALS….some GOOD and some VERY BAD (e.g. MASS RIGGED ELECTIONS and a phoney terrorist PANDEMIC).
    ***IMO, we will NEVER get another Arlington filled with white grave markers. Either we will go to RIGHTEOUSNESS, BEAUTY, COOPERATION, PEACE and most importantly…..Nations based on INDIVIDUAL HUMAN RIGHTS (as per our Founding Fathers and Thomas Paine), OR, this planet will be TERMINATED in a MAD MERCY KILLING so UGLY it is not tolerable to contemplate.
    ***That’s really the only comment I have at this point….except that, in my view, TIME WAITES FOR NO MAN. Who the hell needs more of Arlington or “battlefields”?


    George Washington served as Commander in Chief of the first American Army during the Revolutionary War.
    He served as the president of the Constitutional Convention to draft the laws forming the United States of America.
    He also was elected the first President of our country, serving from 1789 to 1797.
    On May 2, 1778, he issued the following order to his troops at Valley Forge:
    “While we are zealously performing the duties of good Citizens and Soldiers we certainly ought
    not be inattentive to the higher duties of Religion. To the distinguished Character of Patriot,
    it should be Our Highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian.”
    A Patriot is someone who loves, supports, and defends his country.
    The troops who fought in the American Revolution certainly demonstrated Patriotism.
    However, Washington knew that success in the country they were fighting to establish required more than love of country.
    It required love of God. We need to be strong warriors in the spiritual battlefields of life.
    “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world
    and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes,
    you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:10-13
    “In the language of HOLY WRIT, there is a time for all things.
    A time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away.
    There is a time to fight –
    and that time has now come!”
    John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg, Pastor
    Sermon of January 1776

    “The cause of America is in great measure the cause of all mankind.”
    Thomas Paine

  9. Heartfelt, critical reminder delivered to WE THE PEOPLE with class and grace, Patriot Prather. Thank you, as always.

  10. No matter what the cause, who those actors are that create these wars once they do it is the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines that take up the fight that follows, and these ones who took up the fight for us all to be free, and gave the most valuable thing anyone has to give, something, that there are no words to describe fully. Tears will be shed for what they did eternally.

  11. Jeffrey, thank you from my soul for this post. Blessings to you and your service to all of us.
    I was moved to tears over your words. Happy tears.
