“Change the Battleground,” Eagle vs. Snake Lessons from San Fran’s Christoph Sandoval; plus Sunday Headlines in Review 6.14 to 6.21.2020


From Christoph Sandoval in San Francisco is this “Change the Battleground” lesson from the battle in nature between the eagle vs. the snake.


The Eagle does not fight the snake on the ground. It picks it up into the sky and changes the battle ground, and then it releases the snake into the sky.

The snake has no stamina, no power and no balance in the air. It is useless, weak and vulnerable unlike on the ground where it is powerful wise and deadly.

Take your fight into the spiritual realm by praying and when you are in the spiritual realm God takes over your battles.

Don’t fight the enemy in his comfort zone, change the battle grounds like the Eagle and let God take charge through your earnest prayer. You’ll be assured of clean victory.

Pray without ceasing.”


Sandoval, an international speaker who works with business, nonprofit, and faith groups, also shared the video above and the following references via LinkedIn.


QuoteMark1ManufacturedHomeLivingNewsBEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS

” For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity,* will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4


Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to revile glorious beings,


whereas angels,i despite their superior strength and power, do not bring a reviling judgment against them from the Lord.


But these people, like irrational animals born by nature for capture and destruction, revile things that they do not understand, and in their destruction they will also be destroyed,


suffering wrong as payment for wrongdoing. Thinking daytime revelry a delight, they are stains and defilements as they revel in their deceits while carousing with you.


Their eyes are full of adultery and insatiable for sin. They seduce unstable people, and their hearts are trained in greed. Accursed children!


Abandoning the straight road, they have gone astray, following the road of Balaam, the son of Bosor, who loved payment for wrongdoing,


but he received a rebuke for his own crime: a mute beast spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.


These people are waterless springs and mists driven by a gale; for them the gloom of darkness has been reserved.


For, talking empty bombast, they seduce with licentious desires of the flesh those who have barely escaped* from people who live in error.


They promise them freedom, though they themselves are slaves of corruption, for a person is a slave of whatever overcomes him.


For if they, having escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of [our] Lord and savior Jesus Christ, again become entangled and overcome by them, their last condition is worse than their first.


For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment handed down to them.


What is expressed in the true proverb has happened to them,s “The dog returns to its own vomit,” and “A bathed sow returns to wallowing in the mire.”

2 Peter 2:1-22



I arise today

Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,

Through a belief in the Threeness,

Through confession of the Oneness

Of the Creator of creation.

I arise today

Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism,

Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,

Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,

Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

I arise today

Through the strength of the love of cherubim,

In obedience of angels,

In service of archangels,

In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,

In the prayers of patriarchs,

In preachings of the apostles,

In faiths of confessors,

In innocence of virgins,

In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today

Through the strength of heaven;

Light of the sun,

Splendor of fire,

Speed of lightning,

Swiftness of the wind,

Depth of the sea,

Stability of the earth,

Firmness of the rock.

I arise today

Through God’s strength to pilot me;

God’s might to uphold me,

God’s wisdom to guide me,

God’s eye to look before me,

God’s ear to hear me,

God’s word to speak for me,

God’s hand to guard me,

God’s way to lie before me,

God’s shield to protect me,

God’s hosts to save me

From snares of the devil,

From temptations of vices,

From every one who desires me ill,

Afar and anear,

Alone or in a multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and evil,

Against every cruel merciless power that opposes my body and soul,

Against incantations of false prophets,

Against black laws of pagandom,

Against false laws of heretics,

Against craft of idolatry,

Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,

Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

Christ shield me today

Against poison, against burning,

Against drowning, against wounding,

So that reward may come to me in abundance.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,

Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ on my right, Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,

Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,

Christ in the eye that sees me,

Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today

Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,

Through a belief in the Threeness,

Through a confession of the Oneness

Of the Creator of creation.

The ubiquitous Drudge Report periodically runs headlines from mainstream news sources on the rise of Satanic influences. Evil has many names. Among them Lucifer, the devil, Satan and so on.

Just as God is real, so too is the ancient rebel against God who is known as Satan, Lucifer, or the devil. In art, the devil is often depicted as a snake.  The evidence for God is demonstrable, just as the evidence for evil personified is too.

Over the years people from a variety of faith backgrounds have sounded off to MHProNews. They believe that the many threats from within our nation and from outside of our borders requires a Godly response. That doesn’t mean one ignores the human element, but nor should one ignore the spiritual dimension.

Three years before the current racial unrest, MHLivingNews teamed up with the Rev. Donald Tye Jr. to present a message of faith-based, historic, and practical insights. It also flowed from a period of racial division and related unrest.

An argument can be made that the battle underway is of the Godly vs. the ungodly.

The report linked below is zipping toward a record 900,000 hits, a stunning total for an industry of only some 75,000 professionals, according to estimated number of full time workers in pre-COVID19 estimates from Cavco, which cited MHI. The case can be made that some are literally profiting off of division and unrest.  It should be noted that some of these figures are self-proclaimed atheists, or in the case of Bill Gates, who has said that he believes but doesn’t see how faith should impact business or other decisions. Isn’t that a little like saying you believe in gravity, but then jump off a high ledge?

There are those who have said that a secular business-focused trade publication should not inject any religion. Why not? Why marginalize the very forces that can “change the battlefield?”

The abolitionist movement in America that eventually ended slavery in the U.S. was to a great extent born in churches and spread among faith-based groups.

Faith leaders from across the range have said that prayer is needed. That is not to limit or negate the call for human effort. There is an ancient bit of wisdom, “Ora et Labora.” The Latin phrase means “prayer and work,” and is briefly explained by some thinkers that one must pray as if everything depends on God, and then work as if everything depends on human effort.

That said, the bulk of our reports that follow don’t thump Bibles or other faith inspired books. They are, however, step-by-step, evidence-based report on the topics that matter to the most professionals engaged in our industry.

Justice exists in the here and now and in the hereafter. For reports on the battles for truth and justice and how that relates to inherently affordable but also embattled manufactured homes, you’ve come to the right place.

Wealth properly acquired and used is good, but money that is earned dishonestly or by manipulative and illegal means should be rejected and dealt with like any other crime. The irony is that there is more wealth to be earned when it is done honestly and justly. Ponder anew these pull quotes from billionaire Nick Hanauer. Note that some of what Hanauer advocates must be dealt with using the ancient and time-honored principle of separating the wheat form the chaff.


Don’t miss the post-script beyond the weekly headlines in review. Note to those who don’t know or merit a reminder, the “he” in the reference from the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures below is to God.


With no further adieu, let’s dive into the featured reports from 6.14 to 6.21.2020.

The Battle

Since before human history began, there has been a battle between good and evil that has sometimes subtly, sometime violently raged. No one that has lived through war doubts that evil exists. None that have experienced slavery or modern human trafficking – yes, slavery still exists in the modern era – doubt that evil is real. Those who know someone who has been ravaged by drug or alcohol addiction know all too well the traps of evil disguised as something ‘desirable’ too. The list goes on.

From time to time, voices emerge that speak truth to the powers that operate openly, but in nuanced ways. America has previously endured the Gilded Age and the Robber Barons. We are living in a new Gilded Age with new Robber Barons. It is dressed differently, but there are clear parallels. It is worth noting that the report below has been surging, no doubt due to online searches, even though it was published on August 19, 2019 – well before the woes of 2020.




The past and present are reminders that evils must be resisted and at times battled literally and figuratively.

The ubiquitous Drudge Report periodically runs headlines from mainstream news sources on the rise of Satanic influences.

Just as God is real, so too is the ancient rebel against God, Satan, Lucifer, the devil. In art, the devil is often depicted as a snake.

Evil has many names. Among them Lucifer, the devil, Satan and so on. There are no doubt souls that have ‘sold themselves’ to the devil in some sense. Some may recover, others may not. Why battle the snake-like devil on the ground? Why not change the terrain of the battlefield?

We all need each other’s gifts.

  • “Jesus said: “Watch out that no one deceives you.” (Mt. 24.4).
  • My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6.
  • And do not argue on behalf of those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah loves not one who is a habitually sinful deceiver. [Quran, 4:107]” – according to the Understand Quran Academy.
  • All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War, per GoodReads.
  • Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
    ― Criss Jami, per GoodReads.

All on Capitol Hill were welcoming and interested with the discussion of manufactured housing related issues on our 12.3.2019 meetings. But Texas Congressman Al Green’s office was tremendous in their hospitality. Our son’s hand is on a package that included the Constitution of the United States and other goodies.

The featured image includes several metaphorical items. It can be seductive – but dangerous – to believe certain things. A mask, among other meanings, is used to project a false face, often used by actors. The eye conveys vision or understanding, which that woman and the mask partially obscures.
