The journey is a long and hard one. No one said this would be easy. Its not the destination that matters, its the journey that matters. These are all cliches that ring hollow to many of us patriots who have been following events since Trump’s departure in 2021. It has been a long and hard two years. I am kind of ready for the psyop to be over, aren’t you?
There has been a shift over the last couple of months. I am not sure if everyone feels it, but I do. It is not the calm before the storm as many would point out, but there does seem to be a lull in something. Is it a lack of enthusiasm or a down turn in excitement? I am not sure. Don’t get me wrong, a lot is happening for good, and more is to come. Whatever it is, something is changing and I hope I can make sense of it.
A veteran friend on Telegram (@russoutdoors) reminded a group of us recently of the events surrounding the first Persian Gulf War. He correctly pointed out that things really speed up at the end of the war. I was a part of that war as an avionics technician working on F/A-18s jets.
The start of the war was a flurry. There was a lot going on and we were excited to finally put all of our training and drills to actual use. Then, things seemed to slow down a bit. I am not exactly sure if the number of sorties (individual flight missions) deceased or maybe we just settled into a routine. Regardless, towards the end, things did speed up and then it was over! It really is like the drip, drip, then the flood. Are we at that point? Let me change directions for a minute and I will explain.
There is a scripture that has always puzzled me. It is found in the book of Hebrews as the Apostle Paul is describing the many heroes of the faith throughout time.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Has there ever been a scripture that more perfectly describes our present state? I have pondered this scripture for well over 10 years and I never could quite figure it out. I mean, I understand what is being said but what is the deeper meaning? Before I get into that, lets look at this scripture more. Phrases like, “strangers and pilgrims on the earth,” and “desire a better country” really stand out to me. I confess that I do feel like a stranger in my country at times. I long for the day when we can restore some of our values and virtues that have been lost. But this would be a mistake.
When Paul says, “if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.” He really is hitting me in the gut. The scripture is talking about Israel’s journey from slavery in Egypt and the journey to the promised land. Why did they wander in the desert for 40 years? Some would suggest it was to purge Israel of everyone who was a slave and remembered what it was like to be a slave. This is important to keep in mind.
Let’s fast forward to the end of the 11th chapter of Hebrews.
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
This passage is even more cryptic but it makes sense once you understand it. The children of Israel sought freedom from slavery; they sought a place of their own. God granted their wishes but left many great men of faith with unfulfilled promises. Moses never saw the promised land. His bones were carried into the promised land but he never saw it while he was alive. We seek a better America; a better country than what we have now. its possible some of us might feel like we get cheated along the way (ie Kari Lake) but we press on in faith. The prize is bigger than any election. I still believe that our best days are ahead of us.
The problem with God’s chosen people throughout the Bible is their lack of vision. They seemed to have a predetermined idea of what the Messiah would like and how he would return. They failed to recognize Him when it actually happened. They sought a better country and a promised land and received it, but it wasn’t the one God intended for us. Some great heroes of faith never received their promise in this life because it is not here that God wants us to be made perfect or complete; its in communion with Him. They are left wanting. What is our vision like and what do we think is promised to us? Do you long for the place you came from? Do you wish to return to the way things were? Or do you wish for something entirely new…whatever that may be?
The truth is things were better under Donald J Trump in almost every way. Yet, we were still slaves. Wanting Donald Trump to return is not going to fix that. I am starting to fix my eyes on a horizon that may or may not include Donald Trump on it. I believe what many are feeling now is the reality that Trump is not coming back before 2025. This is disappointing to many who were told he would be back before midterms. Maybe to some faithful that was a promise they thought might be fulfilled.
In the early 20th Century a man by the name of William Borden was attending Yale University as the son of a very wealthy family from Chicago. William was a devout Christian and by the time he left Yale there were an estimated 1000 of the 1300 students attending his prayer and Bible study groups. His humility and boldness to preach the gospel was unparalleled at the time as Yale had never entertained such a gathering before.
Rejecting his families wealth and choosing rather to live a pious life, William wrote in the cover of his Bible, “No Reserves.” It was said of Borden,
"might often be found in the lower parts of the city at night, on the street, in a cheap lodging house or some restaurant to which he had taken a poor hungry fellow to feed him, seeking to lead men to Christ.”
Borden had a dream of doing missionary work in China. Specifically, he wanted to reach out to the Muslim Kansu people. Upon graduation from schooling, William Borden rejected the obvious path of returning to his families business and set out for China. In his Bible he wrote, “No Retreat.”
Before reaching his final destination in China, Mr. Borden stopped in Egypt to study Arabic and contracted spinal meningitis and was dead within a month. Mr. William Borden was only 25 years old. The last entry in Borden’s Bible was this, “No regrets.”
When the news of William Whiting Borden's death was cabled back to the U.S., the story was carried by nearly every American newspaper. "A wave of sorrow went round the world . . . Borden not only gave (away) his wealth, but himself, in a way so joyous and natural that it (seemed) a privilege rather than a sacrifice" wrote Taylor in her introduction to his biography.
No Reserves, No retreat, No regrets. Another faithful hero who never got to see his desire fulfilled. We might look at this as a tragedy, but to William Borden he had no regrets. I can only pray that I can say the same when my time is up.
We are on a journey from slavery to the globalists to a land of freedom many of us have never known. To even the eldest of us, we have never known an America without corrupt three letter agencies. Agencies that exist outside the constitution and only with in the frail confines of an executive fiat. We are the freest country in the world, yet we are still slaves.
It’s been said that this battle is NOT just about another 4-year election. The term “Biblical” has also been used to describe events to come. I believe Biblical is EXACTLY how I would describe it. I believe we are at point in time where what was done in secret the last 4 to 6 years will be manifest openly over the next 2 years. Perhaps kinetic justice will be served to those who fought in secret to overthrow this country. This feeling of transition is very palpable to me.
As the psyop and cyber battle phase of the war wraps up, I am looking forward to the next phase which I believe will be a spiritual and Biblical awakening. The Space Force is doing much more than just battling in cyberspace and the stratosphere.

Look at some of these Space Force Unit Patches. There is some heavy mystic and spiritual symbology there. More than I have seen in any other branch of the service. Much of the subject matter above is pointing to the past. Is it possible Space Force knows the way to the future is through our past (future proves past?). I really don’t know. What I do know is that when I look to Israel’s journey from Egypt to the promise land and the journey were currently on, the similarities are almost endless.
As for me, my mind is open, my heart is free, and I have no certain expectations of what is to come. Trump deserves to return as President, but it is not promised. I cannot afford to make the same mistake as faithful men in the past; to look back from where I came. It may turn out that whatever I think is promised to me is withheld for good reason. I have heard it preached many times:
“You can never outthink God. You can never think bigger than God.”
I am focused on the horizon of what is to come, and I am excited that Americas best days are ahead of us. We are on journey that is bigger than many can imagine.
No Reserves, No Retreat, No Regrets
“I would rather die with Christ and hope in my heart and be called a fool then to stand over the dead corpse of the Republic and say, I told you so.”
Great read as usual Biernutz! I like the reminder that some of us will not see the full glory of a renewed world here on earth but for those of us who believe in Christ's salvation glory awaits us nonetheless. I also loved learning about William Borden...a true modern day saint. I have downloaded his biography from Internet Archive to learn more about him. Peace.
Thanks for this insightful perspective on the current climate. I did not know of William Borden. That must have been a time when Chicago was not the seat of the devil, and when Yale would allow such freedom of expression and religion.
Daily, I pray for justice to arrive. For the criminals and traitors and thieves and liars to be held accountable, to be made to pay for what they have done to our country.
I also pray that I will be allowed to live to see this, that I can rejoice at the deliverance of our people from evil and tyranny that is still taking place.
