Matt Barber: 27 church members slain were Martyrs for Christ


Jesus said:

 

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask[a]anything in My name, I will do it. (John 14: 12-14 NKJV)

Have you heard of or perhaps remember Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD? Dr. Klingenschmitt served as a Navy Chaplain. In 2006 Dr. Klingenschmitt prayed “in Jesus’ Name” as the Lord Jesus told His disciples to do.

 

Klingenschmitt, as WND has reported, has fought an extended battle with the Navy over its restrictions on religious expression by its chaplains. He appeared and delivered a public prayer “in Jesus’ name” at a White House rally last winter and was court-martialed for that. The Navy convicted him of failing to follow a lawful order because his superior didn’t want him praying “in Jesus’ name.” (NAVY DISMISSES CHAPLAIN WHO PRAYED ‘IN JESUS’ NAME’; By BOB UNRUH; WND; 01/12/2007 1:00 AM)

 

Dr. Klingenschmitt chose to obey the Lord over an absurd Navy order and got his walking papers for doing so. The silver lining was Congress passed legislation to pray in the Name of Jesus in 2007 (Ibid.). The bad news was the Navy never reinstated his commission as a Chaplain.

 

Anyone that stands with the principles of over any civil employer, government employer and/or military employer; is awesome.

 

In saying all that, I received Dr. Klingenschmitt’s newsletter today. The subject matter is about the Sutherland Springs Massacre, the victims’ faith and an interview with Matt Barber over the atrocity.

A heads up: the good chaplain fund raises by suggesting you join a mass fax of which money is required to send.

I just had the privilege of interviewing Christian attorney Matt Barber about the horrific shooting and death of 27 Christians in Texas, killed because of their Christian faith.

Matt Barber explained on our TV show several things:

 

1)  The victims were martyrs for Jesus Christ, including the 14-year old pastor’s daughter.
2)  The atheist shooter Devon Kelley hated Christians and repeatedly said so.
3)  The neighbor hero Stephen Willeford was a first-responder who shot the bad guy.
4)  The left blames the NRA but Kelley was not NRA and Willeford was.
5)  The left shoots Christians and then demands Christians disarm without self-defense.

Sadly, this is a time of great mourning.

As the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3, there is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance… a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

 

We choose to love and forgive our enemies, and yet as we mourn, we also arm ourselves in self-defense to prepare for the left’s coming war against God and the Church.

If only the shooter Kelley had heard the gospel of Jesus’ love from a chaplain before his bad-conduct discharge.  Let’s petition Congress for chaplains rights to pray “in Jesus’ name”:

Atheist shooter hated Christians, killed 27 in Texas Church

Interviews with those who knew the Texas church shooter now reveal his beliefs.

“According to former classmates of Devin Patrick Kelley, the 26-year-old man who killed 26 people and injured over 20 others in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday was an avowed atheist who mocked those who believed in God,” reports DailyWire.

“DailyMail.com spoke with former classmates who attended New Braunfels High School with Kelley. They all told a similar story: Kelley — who had a history of violence and was given a ‘bad conduct’ discharge from the Air Force — ‘preached atheism,’ acted ‘creepy’ and ‘weird,’ and seemed to hold a ‘very negative’ worldview.

“He had a kid or two, fairly normal, but kinda quiet and lately seemed depressed,” Kelley’s former high school classmate Patrick Boyce told DailyMail.com. “He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don’t know why. I was just shocked [to hear the news].”

 

Devin Patrick Kelley

“Another former classmate, Nina Rose Nava, told the outlet that Kelley ‘was different in school and creeped me out,’ but she added that she ‘never’ would have thought he would do ‘such a horrific thing.’…It’s not something I expected from him. He was an outcast but not a loner. He was popular among other outcast[s].”

“Though Nava said the two hadn’t spoken in person since high school, until recently they had been friends on Facebook. In a post, she said she had ‘just deleted him’ from her Facebook account because she ‘couldn’t stand’ his insulting posts.

“[I]n complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my [Facebook] cause I couldn’t stand his post,” wrote Nava. “He was always talking about how people who believe in God [were] stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”
On Sunday, Kelley — armed with a Ruger rifle and several rounds of ammunition and wearing black tactical gear and a ballistic vest — opened fired during the 11 a.m. service at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, killing 26 and injuring 24, making it the deadliest mass shooting in the history of Texas. His shooting spree came to an end when a heroic armed man got into a shootout with Kelley and forced him into a high speed chase. Kelley died of what authorities believe to be a self-inflicted gun wound.

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  If only a chaplain had reached this confused man in the Air Force with the power of Jesus’ name.  Atheists like Kelley believe there is no God, no consequence for sin, and no ultimate justice for the victims of this horrific murderer.  They will discover they’re wrong, and there is a God, and His justice will prevail.]

Kelley, Mass Murderer, Sounds Like Crazy Leftist to Me


John R. Houk

© November 7, 2017

 

I have discovered that the mass murderer that shot up the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX was 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley. As far as I know as of this writing, Kelley’s name is the only verifiable certainty.

 

Devin Patrick Kelley

 

Unverifiable theories have popped up from news sources often disparaged by the Left as Conspiracist and/or far-right. Which means as far as the Mainstream Media (MSM) is concerned, has no credibility.

 

The top of the list Kelley is that he was a part of Antifa or ISIS. The Left is so dead set against Antifa or ISIS that I ran into a comment supporting the MSM vocal debunking so much, the Leftie speculated Kelley was a far-right racist on a murder spree.

 

The thing is the police-authorities are not giving out any basic info other than name and Kelley being a dishonorably discharged Air Force vet, noting the discharge was for domestic abuse against his wife and child.

 

I’m going to look at the Antifa angle courtesy of the Leftist-hated Fox News that dug into humint facts. After reading this info, you decide if the MSM absolute denial is credible or if the Right are at least better guessers:

 

Shocked former classmates who attended middle and high school with Texas church gunman Devin Patrick Kelley described him Monday as being heavily medicated and someone who kept to himself — despite a deluge of posts on his apparent Facebook profile about weapons and atheism.

 

Kelley — dressed entirely in black and “wearing a face mask with a white skull on it,” according to Texas Department of Public Safety’s regional director Freeman Martin — burst into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday and killed at least 26 people, one as young as 18-months old.

 

 

Another classmate who spoke to Fox News and wished to remain anonymous described Kelley as a quiet student, though he had his share of friends.

 

“He recently added me on [Facebook]. I accepted hence we went to school together, and any time I saw him on my timeline he was sharing stuff about guns and being atheist,” she said. “He was pretty negative. The last post I remember was of a rifle.”

 

Kelley’s Facebook page has since been taken down.

 

 

Brittany Adcock, a 22-year-old who told NBC News that she dated Kelley for two months when she was 13 and he was 18, said Kelley would constantly call her after she broke off the relationship.

 

 

“I don’t think the church was just randomly attacked,” he said [i.e. Governor Abbot]. “I think there was a reason why the shooter chose this church.”

 

The gunman was also denied a Texas gun permit, according to Abbott. [Blog Editor: Bold Text Mine for all those Leftist anti-2nd Amendment/gun control propagandists.]

 

READ ENTIRETY (Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley served in Air Force, was court-martialed for assaulting wife, child; By Travis Fedschun, Greg Norman; Fox News; 11/6/17)

 

Did you notice the part that said, ‘Kelley — dressed entirely in black and “wearing a face mask with a white skull on it,” …’ OR: ‘He was pretty negative. The last post I remember was of a rifle.”

 

Kelley’s Facebook page has since been taken down.’

 

Here some more news from not so-MSM called Metro. However, according to the Metro About Page they have a large circulation as well as online:

 

Metro is published in more than 100 major cities across Europe, North & South America and Asia. Metro has a unique global reach — attracting a young, active, well-educated Metropolitan audience of more than 18 million daily readers.

 

Metro is a free daily newspaper written and designed for young and ambitious professionals. Designed for a 20-minute read, the paper gives metropolitans all they need to know, Monday through Friday, during their morning commutes.

 

Local, national and international news and colorful features are presented without any bias, but showcase a proudly urban attitude and style.

 

And now the Metro Devin Kelley info:

 

Was the Texas church shooter a member of Antifa? Many people are wondering if Devin Patrick Kelley was a member of the anti-fascism (hence, Antifa) group …

 

 

Although fake news swirls after any big tragedy, especially those difficult to comprehend because of their violence, we do know some things for certain about Kelley. We know that he opened fire on parishioners attending a Sunday service at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5. We know that he killed at least 26 people [Blog Editor: Many in the media are saying killed 27 because he killed a pregnant lady. Sure to irritate pro-abortionists]. We know he was wearing all black.

 

But there are also reports going around that he was holding an Antifa flag during the attack and told the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution.”

 

One such report wrote that the Texas church shooter “has been identified as Devin Kelley, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by ‘targeting white conservative churches’ and causing anarchy in the United States.” (Was the Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley a member of Antifa? By Linnea Zielinski; Metro; 11/6/17 – Updated same no time given)

 

In the interest of fair and balanced, Metro finishes their report with the Leftist contention everything about Communist Antifa was fabricated:

 

Antifa United posted to their Facebook group images of the Texas church shooter and the supposed image of their flag, Snopes reports, and were insistent that the image was a fake and that the image was pulled from them and used by some other source to forge a connection between Kelley and the group. The post claims that the “far-right (badly) put together a collage of images/mock up of a FB profile and are claiming the Texas shooter uploaded a picture of his antifa flag.”

 

The post went on to explain “That’s OUR picture. Pulled from our shop website when we had that flag design in stock. The person holding it in the picture is me. The admin of this page. In my office.”

 

[Blog Editor: Here is the tinyurl to the Antifa United Facebook post imbedded below – http://tinyurl.com/y9ycfh5c]

… (Ibid.)

 

UK media’s The Sun doesn’t mention Antifa or ISIS, but enough info that indicates to me that Devin Kelley was a nut job Leftist as indicated by a history of mental illness and Leftist agitating atheism. If he wasn’t an Antifa enthusiast, Kelley definitely was a candidate for Antifa thuggery:

 

Classmate Nina Rosa Nava write on Facebook that the mass murderer used to rant on the social network about his atheist beliefs.

 

She said: “He was always talking about how people who believe in God were stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”

 

Fellow user Christopher Leo Longoria replied: “I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic).”

 

 

Cord Eubank Brown said on social media that he went to high school with “maniac” Kelley.

 

He wrote: “There were people I knew who stayed away from this guy for many reasons, which all make sense now. He just requested me on Facebook recently.”

 

Another former classmate, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Mail that Kelley “always creeped me out and was different.”

 

 

He added: “I ended up distancing myself from him in high school after he got in an argument with me in school and he tried punching me several times. Dude was crazy man.”

 

 

Kelley’s now deleted Facebook page showed a photo of what appeared to be an assault rifle, posted under the words: “She’s a bad b****.”

 

The page also featured the Mark Twain quote: “I do not fear death.”

 

 

The gunman was dressed in black, tactical-type gear and wearing a ballistic vest when he entered the church during the late morning service.

 

Locals have described how Kelley was stopped by two brave men who fatally wounded the “deranged” killer before running his getaway car off the road.

 

Local man Stephen Willeford managed to shoot the mass killer in between his body armour, it has been claimed

 

Fellow local Johnnie Langendorff, along with Willeford, ran Kelley off the road

 

Rifle-wielding plumber Willeford managed to shoot Kelley in between his body armour, with the bullet piercing his side, reports the Mail Online.

 

Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin also confirmed that the 55-year-old, known as an excellent shot in the small town, “grabbed his rifle and engaged the suspect.”

 

The resident said that Willeford and fellow local Johnnie Langendorff jumped in the latter’s truck and gave chase to Kelley – who had grabbed a hostage and had fled in an SUV.

 

But when Langendorff managed to run the depraved killer off the road, the pair of heroes realised that Kelley had bled out after earlier being shot by Willeford, claims the local.

This version of the two local Texas heroes is first time I heard it. Before this, I had not heard Willeford’s name or that he hit Kelley. It was suggested that Kelley might have shot himself to death.
