My wife and I are back home safely after being out of town since last Sunday. We were looking for property for GKM’s international headquarters.
As most of you know, when we moved to Minneapolis from Seattle back in 1996, God gave us a house in the midst of many signs. That house (and nearby office) has served us well, but times have changed. We have witnessed the rise of BLM and Antifa with their “mostly peaceful” riots in many big cities. Then last year BLM moved their office next door to mine!
For the past two years, I have prayed to know if and when to move to a more secure and permanent location for the ministry. Our heavenly Father told me that we would not be fleeing when we moved, but that we would remain here until we won the battle. I did not know what particular battle He was talking about, but it was clear that we had to be patient for a season.
On March 15 a BLM leader and her husband were arrested on fraud charges.
A Black Lives Matter activist and her husband are facing federal fraud and conspiracy charges after allegedly using a nonprofit they founded to scam at least $185,000 from donors, federal authorities announced Tuesday.
Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband, Clark Grant, allegedly used money from their nonprofit, Violence in Boston, to pay for rent, shopping sprees, hotels, car rentals, auto repairs, meal deliveries, and a summer vacation trip to Maryland, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.
I have little doubt that she was one of the “trained Marxists” in the leadership circles of BLM. At the very least, she worked closely with those who described themselves as Marxists—including the co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors.
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.
Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.
“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.
“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
While promoting her book “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018, Cullors described her introduction to and support for Marxist ideology.
About a week after Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband were indicted, the BLM office next door was suddenly empty. I have no idea where they went, but their evacuation was hardly a coincidence. I do not know precisely what day they moved, as I did not notice them actually leaving. It’s just that suddenly I noticed they were no longer there. Yet it must have been about March 22-24, when we were seeing the result of our final prayer battle against the golden calves.
Spiritually speaking, it was an indication we had won the battle in the heavens and that it was also time to take steps toward moving our headquarters. So we took a trip (with Dave and Sherry) to check out the specific location that God had pointed out and to look for property in the nearby area. We made good progress, but this will require more than one trip. Dave and Sherry are handling the negotiations, as they represent the ministry.
Meanwhile, the bank in South Africa finally completed its transfer of funds to a different bank where John can do business with those who are friendly. The funds are available for use today. He will be providing the funds for us to purchase property. The timing is perfect.
The team also has big plans for Costa Rica, now that Rodrigo Chavez won the presidential election that was held last Sunday.
Our team members had already consulted with him last year, at a time when he was far behind Jose Maria Figueres, the Rothschild candidate. Few believed that Chavez could win. He said that if he were elected, he would welcome some important projects that our team could do to greatly improve the economy in Costa Rica. (These projects involve cutting-edge technology.)
So we expect to do great things in Costa Rica in the coming years to improve the lives of the people and to set up a teaching ministry there as well. Traditional ministry has been defined by evangelization and teaching, but we are now building the Kingdom, which involves nation building as well. We have to move from a debt-based economic system of slavery to a Kingdom economic and political system that sets the captives free on a practical level.
We understand, of course, that ultimate freedom is found only in the manifestation of the sons of God. Without moving in that direction, any economic or political freedoms will be temporary. We believe that the world is moving into a Tabernacles Age, where the overcomers will lead the rest of the world into the freedom of the children of God. It will also be an age of peace and general prosperity, as described in Isaiah 2:2, 3, 4.
We ourselves have every intention of contributing to that overall plan of the Kingdom, and we will work toward that goal with whatever resources God gives us. Within this context, my part has been to set up Bible schools and teaching centers around the world. I believe that God has given me revelation from the word that lays a proper foundation of truth on which the Kingdom can be built and sustained.
