This very special
Sharpening Our Discerning SUNDAY
open thread

is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody
to post whatever they feel they would like
to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the KAG!KMAG world.


Say what you want, comment on what other people said,
comment on people’s comments.
Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.


See the January 1st daily thread for the rules of the road,
which are few but important.

Discerning Our Motivations

“… and he sent messengers before his face, and having gone on, they went into a village of Samaritans, to make ready for him, and they did not receive him, because his face was going on to Jerusalem.

And his disciples James and John having seen, said, `Sir, wilt thou that we may command fire to come down from the heaven, and to consume them, as also Elijah did?’

And having turned, he rebuked them, and said, ‘Ye have not known of what spirit ye are‘…”

Luke 9:52-55

Sharpening Our Discerning Sunday

The beauty of our design is that we are created to maximize our effectiveness in the context of meaningful relationships. This is especially important to remember in the community of faith. And in the community of Patriots.

In the hurricane of this communications battle we find ourselves in today, we need all of us working together in order to accurately discern what is important and map out strategies for getting to where we are going.

In the passage above, quoted from Luke 9, the Samaritans thought Jesus was their enemy because he seemed to be heading to Jerusalem. The disciples thought the Samaritans were their enemy because they rejected them. Neither were discerning what was afoot.

Being good students of the Torah, the disciples were ready to reenact an old testament prophet’s great moment of fame. Calling FIRE down on these filthy Samaritans!

Jesus has to rebuke his men. While I might not be able from the text to give a specific name to the spirit they were being deceived by, I’m pretty confident that we are dealing with the same spirit in spades right now. And we had better do both a head check and a heart check so that the Lord does not have rebuke us.

Discernment. We don’t have much of it. Those who are isolated from community are in the greatest danger of having our malicious enemy twist their perceptions of reality.

We MUST work together to grow the best possible perceptions of reality. 


Scripture: Church, One Body, Many Parts


Why do you think free speech is under attack? Could it be that the open marketplace of ideas is an existential threat to those throwing up smoke and mirrors around their work of dismantling all that we hold near and dear. I think it is.

A newer term for what Wolf’s Q Treehouse operates in every day is “crowd-sourcing.” That is to say, a group of people with a common interest all contribute their viewpoint, observations, even work-products to build something bigger than themselves.

Each person has the potential to make a unique contribution to our emerging understanding.

This undoubtably poses a threat to those who want us in a fog of war. We can expect to see various “spirits” rise up and attempt to throw sand in the machinery. A spirit of offense here, a spirit of division there. Maybe even some deceiving spirits distracting our focus in the middle of a discussion that is about to unlock wisdom we truly need for this next season.

This calls for more discernment. May I suggest for those of us that walk with Jesus to ask him for a discerning heart and a willing mind to see with his eyes and think his thoughts about the world we find ourselves in?

“For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. holy-spirit-j-peg

And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more and more in knowledge and every kind of perception,
to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure
and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ
for the glory and praise of God.”
Philippians 1:8-11

  1. The Communist Dems are howling today more than ever before.
    Petty and small, their tortured logic appears desperate.
    We’ve been hovering over the target for a long time. It’s time for some retribution. My babes in the red states need some red meat.

  2. He Makes The News

    He’s been in the news forever
    Almost all his whole life long
    He puts politics and honesty together
    He is PTrump, and he makes the news

    He makes the news that makes the free world sing
    He makes the news so peace and freedom ring
    He makes the news so Libs and Fake News cry
    He makes the news, he makes the news

    His hope lies deep within us
    With peace and freedom as our goals
    Then when we look out through our eyes
    We see history, and we watch it unfold

    He makes the news that shows truth over lies
    He makes the news so good people arise
    He makes the news changing enemies to allies
    He makes the news, He makes the news

    Oh, his good news makes us dance
    And gives us spirit to take a chance
    So he crossed the DMZ so he could prove
    Kim and he can get along
    Together, both free and strong

    It’s the truth, it can be
    It can grow, can’t you see
    To a worldwide symphony

    In a gesture so profound
    He strode through dangerous ground
    And as Deplorables, we watch and cheer
    What a time to be alive
    To watch America grow and thrive

    We are one, we are free
    It’s PTrump, he’s the key
    To all that we can be

    He makes the news that makes the free world sing
    He makes the news so peace and freedom ring
    He makes the news so Libs and Fake News cry
    He makes the news, he makes the news

    He is PTrump, and he makes the news!

        1. People want it all to get fixed post haste, red – takes time for all of the pieces of this giant puzzle to be gathered and put into place – this is a HUGE undertaking – unfortunately, we think we have been patient long enough – get ‘er done – we say – easier said than done – if we go too quickly – some of those treasonous miscreants will get off on a technicality – we don not want that – we want them to pay – with their lives if possible – yes?

  3. From my Inbox:

    “This notice can now be found in all French churches:

    En entrant dans cette église, il est possible que vous entendiez l’appel de Dieu.
    Par contre, il n’est pas susceptible de vous contacter par téléphone.
    Merci d’avoir éteint votre téléphone.
    Si vous souhaitez parler à Dieu, entrez, choisissez un endroit tranquille et
    parle lui.
    Si vous souhaitez le voir, envoyez-lui un SMS en conduisant.

    Translation:

    It is possible that on entering this church, you may hear the Call of God.

    On the other hand, it is not likely that he will contact you by ‘phone.

    Thank you for turning off your phone.

    If you would like to talk to God, come in, choose a quiet place, and
    talk to him.

    If you would like to see him, send him a text while driving.”

          1. We have to fight to save the future men,8 years of Nobama really finished off what was left of education.
            Nobama went full ahead with the indoctrination of our youth and he had alot of help on the way.
            We are this nations only help and we have to take our country back, SHIT just got real.
            I was working for my gramps when I was 9, that is what seperated me from most, they used to call me “Mule”
            Todays men lack a good ass whoopin from a father figure, mothers have pampers the youth.

  5. Ted Talk … interesting, but you have to get past the first part to get to the meat of what he’s saying…

    Thought it might be of interest to some who are unfamiliar with the dark net…

    1. That was fascinating; thank you. I wonder if the dark net will become a way to get around those censoring conservative thought.

  6. Anyone else here live in a vintage neighborhood – and have for decades – with millennial neighbors who get ticked off over the street being under construction? Yeah, so they can’t use their driveway. Well, they’re taking up our parking spots on the street, and it’s not construction guys’ fault that it rained and there was standing water on the roadbed that had to be pumped out and needs to dry before the asphalt is laid.

    I mean, honestly, if they were as attentive to going to church as they seem to be about other stuff…. (My, that was judgmental.)

    Sorry, but it sounded to me that these people were accusing the construction people of being negligent about things that are beyond their control. Really, there are people who have lived here for a lot longer and we’re not complaining. We’ve been waiting years for this.

  8. “Major Israeli Airstrike On Syria Just As Russian-Supplied S-300 Went Operational

    Hours after Israeli reports said Russian S-300 anti-air defense systems in Syria came online and were “operational,” the Israeli military allegedly launched a major aerial attack on Syria in the middle of the night Sunday.”

    1. So, why isn’t the U.S. taking quick, decisive action against Antifa? I hope it’s because we are tracking comms, funding sources, organizational relationships, membership, etc., so that at an appropriate time in the future (it’s never soon enough for me), we’ll be able to catch all the rats on the ship instead of acting earlier and a bunch of those rats get to swim to shore before the ship goes down.

  10. What a great weekend, hope everyone had the same! Just wondering from anyone willing to critique a total amateur. … so drillerwife got some materials and had us (me, driller-son and his gf) watch the art sherpa on YouTube, she’s pretty funny. We kinda followed a tutorial but I think I surprised them, me too actually 😳😲 Idk, it was fun though

      1. Hah! A long lost (so I thought) talent. I was looking at tools for creating some works out of petrified wood, sandstone and gemstones yesterday and suddenly she came up with the idea of doing this. Long story but her father gave her a dream the other night about tapping into our creative sides. Strange how all my years in art class, 30 some years ago, come rushing back.

  11. Love your commentary on The Body of Christ T3. That is one of the reasons we have to pray for everyone, even Soros, Antifa, and even O and the Klintons, everyone. He asks us to do so.
