Mark Meckler: Immunity from Tyranny

Mark Meckler: Immunity from Tyranny

In this episode of the By His Grace podcast, Misty Phillip implores parents to pray and seek wisdom from God before administering the COVID vaccine to their children, and to do their research. Misty shares a brief testimony of her son who was vaccine injured,  the long-term side effects, and his subsequent brain injury.

Misty interviews Mark Meckler, the President and co-founder of Convention of States Action, the largest nationwide movement seeking to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States. 

Mark Meckler Bio

Before his work with the Convention of States Action, Mark served as the interim CEO at Parler, where he helped bring the free speech social media company back online. In 2009, Mark co-founded the Tea Party Patriots, the largest Tea Party group in the United States. As the result of Mark’s leadership, the Tea Party grew to a massive, nationwide movement that elected numerous members to the U.S. Congress who still hold powerful positions today.

They discuss his work at the Convention of States Action to restrain federal tyranny, including proposing amendments, term limits, financial restrictions, and limiting governmental overreach. Mark and Patty have been married more than 27 years, with one son who just completed his service with the Marine Corps and is now a second year law student, and a daughter who recently graduated from Hillsdale College, and works in education policy reform. They now spend their free time with their Great Dane at their Texas homestead.

Poll: Plurality of Americans Say Natural Immunity to COVID-19 Equal to Vaccine

They discuss a recent poll produced by the Convention of States Action, in conjunction with The Trafalgar Group- one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, and 2020—releasing a new national survey of COVID-19 and Natural Immunity. The findings show the majority of the people who responded believe that natural immunity is equal to or better than vaccinated immunity. 

Misty asked for Mark’s input on the newly approved COVID vaccination for children ages 5-11 and his reaction to the following comments from medical experts who are raising their concerns about vaccinating children.

“Young children will be harmed in an ill-advised rush to vaccinate a population with very little chance of severe infection from the virus.”

Dr. Peter McCullough, a widely published cardiologist and leading voice on a rational pandemic response which said, “There will be children lost with the vax — far more than ever happened with COVID,” 

“According to the inventor of the mRNA technology on which the vaccine is based, “The real risk for healthy kids is about zero — it does appear to be lower than the flu,” said Dr. Robert Malone. Inoculating 28 million children 5 to 11 years old, Malone told attendees of the Florida Summit on Covid, could lead to “a thousand or more excess deaths.”

Key Takeaways

Vaccine injuries are real.

There is virtually no risk to children.

“Why would we put a foreign substance in their body. Why we would inject them with a foreign substance intended to remove a risk that is virtually zero.” It makes no scientific sense, and more importantly, because it makes no scientific sense, I consider it immoral it makes no moral sense.

Medicine is a practice. There are not always hard and fast answers. 

What are your kids worth to you?

What can we do to stop the tyranny?

Easy Options

Contact your city council. Contact your county board of supervisors and school boards. Say no to mandates. Get involved politically.

More Difficult Options

Resist. Homeschool your kids. Say no. Do not wear a mask in the airport. 

We need to practice acts of resistance to stop the march of tyranny.

“Don’t wear a mask, but don’t be a jerk. Don’t be a sheep, but don’t be a jerk.”

Karen Ehman: People Pleasing

Karen Ehman: People Pleasing

On this episode of the By His Grace podcast, I sit down with New York Times Best-selling author Karen Ehman to discuss people-pleasing. You ask yourself how can I stop pleasing others. Karen shares her life-long addiction and struggles with being a people pleaser. In her pursuit of wanting God, she struggled with pleasing other people. Which led to her summer of no. With honesty and practical wisdom, Karen explores why we fall into people-pleasing behaviors and offers advice for how we can break out into the freedom God has called us to. Because the truth is we cannot fulfill our divine purpose if we’re too busy living everyone else’s.

Karen is the author of When Making Others Happy is Making You Miserable: How to Break the Habit of People Pleasing and Confidently Live Your Life. Author and speaker Karen Ehman knows firsthand how people-pleasing locks us in a prison, traps us in unhealthy habits which distract us from our God-given purpose.

Key Takeaways

People-pleasing is a strength that is carried to an extreme

When we choose people over God, then we are putting people in the place of God, and let them call the shots instead of him

I underestimated my ability to take on a lot of things and I just kept saying yes to everything

The summer of necessary & no, doing only what was necessary for home and ministry

It was the hardest and best thing I’ve ever done

Put back on my plate only the things I knew God was calling me to, not the other things I was expected to do

Sometimes we feel like there’s so much to do, and we want to have our fingers in all of it

Write out everything you have to do, and what are the things that only you can do, what can I delegate or pay someone to do

Be firm in our no, and don’t over-explain

Scape your plate, and be prayerful about what you add back on

When Making Others Happy is Making You Miserable: How to Break the Habit of People Pleasing and Confidently Live Your Life

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10 (ESV)

Jordan Raynor: Redeeming Your Time

Jordan Raynor: Redeeming Your Time

On this episode the By His Grace podcast, I sit down with best-selling author Jordan Raynor to discuss his new book Redeeming Your Time: 7 Biblical Principles for Being Purposeful, Present, and Wildly Productive.This power-packed episode is filled with wisdom to not just to manage your time, or talk about productivity, but to redeem your time to partner with God to accomplish Kingdom work.

Jordan shares that the gospel biographies show Jesus facing many of the same challenges we face today as we seek to steward our limited time. And because he was infallible God, we can assume that Jesus managed his time perfectly, providing us with the ideal model to follow.

Key Takeaways

“The 7 Principles, they’re not just Biblical, I believe you can see them in the gospel modeled in the life of Jesus Christ”

“I’ve  never once read one, where accounted for the author time, God Himself of course, managed His time when He came to earth in the incarnation, in a human being named Jesus Christ”

“Jesus prioritized time with the Father above food, sleep, time with disciples above everything, we gotta do the same.”

“Before we set BIG goals for our life, we gotta be faithful with what’s in our hands right now”

“Jesus spent a phenomal amount of time in lonely places, sometimes the gospels translate that to solitary places, we have to do the same if we want to be creative, if we want to think clearly, if we want to listen to God’s voice”

“Jesus throughout the gospels was crazy busy, but remarkably unhurried.”

“We should be setting the biggest goals on the planet”

“God doesn’t need us to be productive, we can rest and the world is going to keep on spinning”

“My friends curate the news for me”

“We gotta recognize that quiet places are not places of weakness, there are places of great strength.”

7 Timeless Principles to Redeem our Time

  1. Start with The Word
  2. Jesus commanded our Yes, be Yes
  3. Dissent from the Kingdom of Noise
  4. Prioritize Your Yeses
  5. Accept Your Uni-presence
  6. Embrace Productive Rest
  7. Eliminate Hurry

3 Rhythms of Rest

  1. Bi-hourly breaks
  2. We need eight hours of Sleep
  3. Sabbath

Jordan’s favorite Practice – Taking control of when you check your messages

  1. Choice ahead of time, when you are going to check your messages
  2. Build a list of VIP’s that you want to have access to you at anytime
  3. Go to the VIP’s and set clear expectations of when you will check messages

“The days are evil, we are running out time, to do the work that God has created us to do”
