Where Have All The Good Men Gone? – By Thomas Koester

“Where have all good men gone, and where are all the gods?

Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?

Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night, I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero till the end of the night

He’s gotta be strong, and he’s gotta be fast, and he’s gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero

I’m holding out for a hero till the morning light
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon, and he’s gotta be larger than life…” Lyrics by Bonnie Tyler

“In peace nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, disguise fair nature with hard favored rage. . .” William Shakespeare

We live to fight for others; dammit, there’s no time for cowardice of heart or the indulgence of sorrow and pity…we have no time for what might have been, but only for what must be done! …Stop licking your wounds, get’m healed by Christ himself then back into the fight we go!

We men, must in great hast, understand the times in which we live. It is of no accident or coincidence that you’ve been born in such infamous days. You will not survive what lies ahead unless you ready yourself, strengthen your heart and clear your mind of worry.

Your very soul is witnessing your actions; your wife and kids are watching; angels are gathering and demons are unsettled.

Become the man you’ve been destined and chosen to be, and give your God his due or die trying.

Our warfare is not against men and politics; we’re not battling flesh and blood, minorities or extremist; our fight is with spiritual wickedness in high places and unseen principalities; evil puppeteers preying on the weakness of mortal men, enticing them with absolute power to cause absolute corruption.

Pay attention! If you refuse to battle the spiritual darkness of our time you’ll be swept up into it’s evil, for neutrality is equality with Darkness and bystanders will soon become backsliders.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

Good men, do something! Doing nothing is an abandonment of your masculine soul and God given role in this world. There are only two kingdoms, the Kingdom of Darkness and the Kingdom of Heaven. Your convictions and actions dictate to which Kingdom you belong too and not your “good” intentions.

Turn your gaming and playtime into the prayers of warriors and saints. Act like the heros of our ancient faith, who’ve never seen their victories in the land of the living, but gave their lives nonetheless. It is they which are in the heavens, cheering us towards glory and final victory.

“As it goes, everyone will receive what his actions in life have cultivated. Whoever has labored diligently and patiently to do what is right—seeking glory, honor, and immortality—God will grant him endless joy in life eternal. But selfish individuals who make trouble, resist the truth, or sell out to wickedness will meet a very different fate—they will find fury and indignation as the fruit of living in the wrong.” – Romans 2:6-8 (VOICE)

Start doing what is right and true; do it with everything you’ve got. What you do, or not do, has eternal consequence.

Say: “goodbye” to selfishness and passivity and say: “hello” to glory, honor and immortality!

Earn your crowns, so that you’ll have something to lay down at the feet of your King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

There is no room for second place winners in the Halls of Heaven.

“Remember, there is only one foundation, the one already laid: Jesus Christ. Take particular care in picking out your building materials. Eventually there is going to be an inspection. If you use cheap or inferior materials, you’ll be found out. The inspection will be thorough and rigorous. You won’t get by with a thing. If your work passes inspection, fine; if it doesn’t, your part of the building will be torn out and started over. But you won’t be torn out; you’ll survive—but just barely.” 1 Corinthians 3: 12-15 (MSG)

“Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste death but once.” William Shakespeare

We need men to be men and to transition into warriors and not women.

Where have all the good men gone?

He’s you! I dare you to come out from hiding.
