Spiritual Preparedness Updates | The Wire

Spiritual Preparedness

Updates provided by S2 Underground. Comments provided by Andre and Angela Ong.

We started sending updates from S2 Underground, called The Wire to our grown children daily.  We coupled them with reflections based on scripture for Spiritual Preparedness.  These updates now also go to any who would like to receive them by email.  Additionally, we’ve archived them here for your edification.  If you would like to receive these updates by email, let us know at ateam@showmeliberty.net.

If you haven’t come across S2 Underground, they’re on YouTube and a few other platforms.  These guys are former military intelligence officers.  They use their skills now to publish updates on daily events that could impact society and the infrastructure, help people prepare for what may be coming, and have implemented a radio-based communications net independent of the grid.  They’re not “out there” in their philosophy or “conspiracy theories.”

Paranthetically, in case you’re wondering, Army units at all levels are divided into departments, colloquially called “Shops.”  The “S” refers to departments in units commanded by officers lower than General.  The S2 is the intelligence department.  I once asked what the S stood for.  No one knew…

S2 Underground’s “The Wire” updates come out daily, along with a roll up for the week on Sundays.  It’s factual and thoughtful, and as objective as a conservative mind can be these days.

A Joy Filled Life | June 19, 2024

The good and the bad happen *at the same time.* Biblical thinking “takes thoughts captive” and focuses attention on the good in the midst of the bad. The feasting table God has set before us in the midst of our enemies should be our focus. It should be *my* focus.

Spiritual maturity, and spiritual preparedness, I’ve discovered, demands a heart filled with joy because the mind is set on the evidences of God’s grace. This means that preparing for tougher times is first an exercise in mentally focusing on the goodness God continually brings to us, his children. Otherwise, spiritually and then physically, we have no resilience in the truly trying times.

Going over the news reports, which admittedly are primarily from major sources (S2 Underground uses major sources to avoid dealing with objections and arguments questioning the validity of their reporting), eventually I got to the point of “it’s just more of the same.”

*Sigh*. The darkness in Canada grows. When people simply give up on life, and the government facilitates despondency and surrender rather than encouragement and perseverance, the nation becomes a people of despair. It’s like that country’s color has faded to a dismal gray, much like Kansas before Dorothy gets to the Land of Oz.

Did you know that the first king of Israel wasn’t Saul? It was Abimelech. He was Gideon’s son. He killed his brothers (about 70 guys) all on the same stone. He managed to get a campaign donation so that he could hire “worthless and reckless fellows.” (Judges 9).

I read a news article regarding the counties in Texas pre-declaring a disaster for the eclipse. They’re using the expanded powers under a disaster declaration to have more county resources (police, paramedics, etc.) on duty. In short, it looks like they used the declaration to access funds.

Should a foreign nation listed as an adversary be permitted to run a social media site, replete with algorithms, in America? Seems like a bad idea to me. I’ve heard a lot of negative press and opinions about TikTok. I prefer that people stay off it, primarily because I have yet to see a genuinely good thing come of it.
