“Blessed are the peacemakers… For they shall be called sons of God…”
Matthew 5:9 (NKJV)

Just who are these peacemakers? Are they the fighters and protectors of freedom and from oppression? Are they the one’s whose feet are blessed with the Gospel of the Good News of God’s amazing Grace and Love? I say that it is both… And so much more…

Peacemakers… in the vast definition that God uses covers those who would sacrifice their lives to protect God’s people from oppression of any kind… 
This indeed covers our brave men and women of the United States Military… who have fought all over the world to maintain freedom here… on our precious soil. Some do not understand that premise… and I must admit that sometimes it is hard to see how a war in a foreign land could help maintain freedom here in America… some things will not be understood until we enter into eternity and “know as we are known” (1 Corinthians 13:12)

But God… has a reason for everything that happens… and His reasoning does not have to be understood by us… the creation… ergo… enters “Faith”
(Please note: I am not opening this discussion up to debate… I am simply making statements of things that are in my heart and I ask that you just respect them as exactly that…)

I just know that since I have been actively ministering to my fellow brothers and sisters in arms… I have come to gain a new and more passionate appreciation for who and what they are… Sometimes my heart is broken by what a gentle spirit had to become to protect my freedoms… and I weep and pray for them and love them with the unconditional love of God the Father… for it is only by His Grace that we have this awesome country that HE gave us… and by the sacrifice of the many men and women throughout our relatively short history as a nation… “One Nation Under God”

What began as a “ministry” to bless our forgotten heroes… has turned into a passion of desire to bless those who have blessed me so much. Every home that I go to… gives me new personalities to glean the character of a great nation from… 
And in them I see so many of the characteristics of our God Who sacrificed His ONLY Son for our freedom from the oppression of sin… and if it is with my last breath… I will sing and testify of the Love and Grace of God to these precious heroes… NOT just the veterans in homes… but ALL veterans that I meet along the highways and byways of this Great country… And not just the military veterans… but the active military… the police forces serving the “Peacemaking” of America… local police… sheriff’s patrols… highway patrols… homeland security… firemen… etc. And whenever I see one of these fine servants… I stop and pray for them… because they are serving us much the same as our military… for our safety and freedom.

God has called me to this ministry to the Vets and those who serve our country as “Peacemakers” and so often I ask Him… “why me Lord?... what have I ever done to deserve such and honor?” to which He so lovingly responded… 
“Because I have called you and equipped you to reach them… by your spirit which is Mine… and the gifts and talents that I have given you to reach across the chasms that so often separate them and Me… and your experiences in life… I have given you to be able to relate to them with My compassion... love… and grace… because… you see… you are my child and I want you to have purpose in your life… I love you and them… Go… My warrior… and tell them of my Love and Grace… and I will be with you unto the end of the age”

So… I Go… because of the Love and Grace given to me… that I did not deserve… 
He made me His…
Musicianary… Acts 20:24… Isaiah 38:20… Isaiah 6:8

December is the month that I am actively working on my itinerary for 2018… it’s exciting to be used of the Lord in such a way… Beginning the second week of January 2018… I will be retracing my steps across S. California… S. Nevada… Arizona… New Mexico and back into Texas where I will be spending most of the winter. Should your church or venue… along this path… desire a concert/ministry I would be honored to share… as I go. 
I am also one of Compassion International’s Music Artist Ambassadors and would love to come to your church and do a concert and present Compassion’s ministry to the children of the world… If interested… please inbox me and we will… by His grace… make it happen.

The years have passed... many are they... but the same fire and heart remain... a passion that has stood the test of time and trials... given by the calling of the LORD... holding on to hope with every breath... dreaming dreams as if life would never end... in search of that Oasis where the life giving waters flow from a Throne that has no beginning nor will it ever end… “Faith is the substance of things Hoped for… the Evidence of their manifestations… though not yet grasped”

In His Love… Grace and Passion… I am His…
Musicianary… Acts 20:24… Isaiah 38:20... Isaiah 6:8

Psalm 71:17-19 (NKJV)

O God, You have taught me from my youth;
And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.
Now also when I am old and grayheaded,
O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.
Also Your righteousness, O God, is very high,
You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You?

“I will make you a great nation… I will bless you
And make your name great… And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you… And I will curse him who curses you…
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Genesis 12:2-3 NKJV

 

This was the USA… once upon a time… We “were” a great nation… and indeed our “name” was great among the peoples of the earth… and we were immensely blessed in every way… and we shared that blessing with the peoples of the world making the families of the earth blessed as well… and anyone who cursed us did not survive because God had made us mighty among the nations…
What happened and where are we now???  Indeed people… it is time for us to stand up and repent… turn our hearts… as a nation… back to God and the beloved country that He ordained us to be…

 

 

You see… history repeats itself… over and over… And this scripture was for us as a nation repeated thousands of years later in us for the Glory of the LORD… We have left our first love and exchanged it for the love of self and lost our way… Is it too late for us??? Only time will tell…
as the scripture reads…  
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-16 NKJV)

 

 

Will we indeed be this people??? His people??? Humbled… Praying… Seeking His Face… and Turn from Our Wicked Ways???  I have hope yet… even knowing the prophecies of the Word of God… indeed I have HOPE!!! Therefore I am beginning the concert series “Revival in the Land… back to God and Country… with a Passion”

 

 

Bookings are beginning to come in and a tour is scheduled to begin early summer… We all must DO what we CAN DO… this is my calling and I will do it alone if need be… but DO IT I WILL!!!

 

 

The type of venues will vary as much as there are a variety of venues… Churches… Community Centers… VA Homes… Coffee Houses… Festivals… Parks and the Highways and byways of this once great nation… Can we come back??? Time and YOU will tell… America has always been a nation that pulled up our bootstraps and got it done when the going got rough… and believe me… it is as rough as it has ever been now… we face extinction IF we do not act… that my friends is rough!!!

 

 

God bless you as you DO what You Can Do for America and its survival… If you desire to help me do this calling… please just inbox me and I will be glad to tell you how… Most of all… PRAY for there are those who would not like to see this happen… and some are violent in their passion… “God be for me… WHO can be against me”  He is my provider and protector… and as a famous lady of the Word of God once said… “If I perish… I perish!!!”

 

 

God bless you all… and may God bless America… once again!!!

Should any of you desire to see this tour come to your locality... please use the contact link to reach me to discuss the details... it is easier than you may think!!!

 

Oasis prologue

 

As we travel this journey we call “life”… we are all searching for something… for some place… for someone… We all have goals to reach…Even if we don’t realize it… we are indeed in search of something...

For some it is a casual thing that if they reach their goals… it is cool…but not a pinnacle in life…
Yet for others… they are driven by an unexplainable passion that never really allows these goals to stay in the background of life for very long…
These are the people who actually do things… whether it be great inventions that make our lives a little more comfortable…safer… or convenient…
Or the statesmen such as our Founding Fathers who had a commission… a calling upon their lives to make a great country that affected the world like no other ever has before or will again…
OR… it could be those who are given the gift of the arts… who are called to change the heart of mankind through their God given gifts and talents… in song… in writing… in acting…photography… or by the many other facets of the arts…

It all circumvolves around a thing called “Hope” 
Hope… of a new and better life…
Hope… for that certain special someone who will… we hope… make our lives complete…
Hope that it all takes us to an expected end in a better life… both now and in the afterlife.
We Hope in places to live that are comfortable and safe… we Hope that we can live in relatively secure freedom without oppression by the authorities or from other factions…
and I could go on and on with this comparison and description of “Hope” and its potential… for Hope is limited only by the Faith of the one who is “Hoping”… but you get the drift here I am sure…
Life really does have a lot of “hopefuls” in it… And as we search for these “things” the journey takes us to a place that is our personal dreamland.. Our “Oasis” as it were… the place where it all accumulates and finds its completion in the “Hope” of fulfillment and pleasure… We don’t “Hope” for or chase dreams and things that we already have… therefore “Hope” drives us… encourages us… and can disappoint us.


“Oasis” is the place where the pool is that has the satisfying drink of water we all desire… Where the water is so pure… clear and clean that none can compare with it.  Where the fulfillment of dreams are realized… where peace finds its place in our hearts… and pleasure is unparalleled… a place of rest for the weary traveler who has journeyed through the desert of life. It is the place within a dream in which that dream touches reality… and to actually visit it and touch it… in this life… would violate it and profane its purity.


This song… “Oasis” that I am going to share the lyrics of with you… is the tale of just that… a journey through life in search of that place called Oasis… the culmination of Hopes and Dreams… My hopes and dreams… and more importantly… the LORD’s Hopes and Dreams for me… The passion is throughout… the tragedy… the joy… the doubts and disappointments and the faith in the One Who makes dreams come true and rewards the faithful who only look ahead to the goal of the prize at the end of the road…

 

Some of you will be able to relate to the foundation and passion that is wrapped up inside of this story… indeed some of you will know the force that drives this adventure in the course of life… and some of you may look at this as being ridiculous and even somewhat selfish or childish… that is your prerogative… be that as it may… it is the story of many of the people who dared to dream and pursue their dreams sometimes at great  expense… There are many tears hidden within this canticle and many times of joy and victory as well…

The journey does indeed lead to the “Oasis”… the same Oasis that is searched for in my story “Saga of the Bold Knight in search of Oasis”™® … which is where we all desire to end up…  We call it Heaven but  it is in reality the place where our real Freedom will be found… and this time…  No One Can Take it Away… EVER!!!  

So come with me into the lyric of “Oasis” … I dedicate this song to all of you who dare to  dream… and then dare again to follow those dreams… passionately at any cost…

“Risking all I have and all that I own... for a dream…That no one sees but You alone”

 

You are rare.. indeed few and far in between…  but indeed brothers and sisters in the Journey we call Life…in search of “Oasis”  (May it be to the Glory of the LORD)

“Oasis” © Stan Pollmann

 

I've been searching all my life it seems

For a handful of my hopes and dreams

Looking under every rock I find...

Hoping to find them ...in the sands of time

 

And so I go on searching while I breathe

for those dreams I know that You put in me

Risking all I have and all that I own... for a dream

That no one sees but You alone.

 

Chorus:

I'm searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Oasis if you're out there somewhere...

I really need to know...

I'm searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Oasis if you're out there somewhere...

I really need to know...I really need to know...

 

They say that hope deferred...Makes your heart feel blue

 

well that's a feeling I had grown accustomed to

I know you put this yearning deep inside...

to find the dreams... the dreams of my life

 

So I go on searching relentlessly

For the dreams I know that You put in me

I know I'll find them there at the end of the road...

They're waiting for me to have and to hold.

 

Chorus:

I'm searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Oasis if you're out there somewhere...

I really need to know...

I'm searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Oasis if you're out there somewhere...

I really need to know...Oasis I need to know...

 

(Instrumental Bridge)

Chorus:

I was searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Jesus... You're the living water...

And You made me whole

I was searching for water... to quench my thirsty soul

Jesus... You're the living water...

And You made me whole...

You made me whole...

 

(Instrumental Bridge and end...)
