At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.” -Matt. 7:15-21 Gospel, Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

We are in the end game, and Jesus calls out who are our enemies. During the dog days of summer He reaches out to us and steers us away from the evil one. We know who the enemy is acknowledge that and take the shield Jesus gives us, and use that. Fight, use our God given brains and accept the place He has given us in history. Again I give you, what they wish for us. They are mobilizing against us as we speak. Use the lull in this short summer to prepare. Time is short. They mean business, believe it.
