Daily Devotional for Tuesday May 12, 2009
Advocating our Beliefs as Effectively as Those who Serve Satan
Advocating our beliefs as effectively as those who serve satan! I sit back in amazement day after day watching the advocates for satan take their stand in the marketplace and advance their agenda. From those who want to kill babies, to those who want to see gay marriage in all 50 states along with other special rights for homosexuals like gay adoption, to those who want to take God out of the public square, to those who represent false religions like Islam, to those who promote the traps of this world like pornography, drugs, alcohol, and sex, to those who simply hate Christ and Christians. Satan's minions are focused, well financed, and tenacious as they advocate his agenda that lead to destroyed lives and souls burning in hell for all eternity.
I was watching in amazement last week as MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews mocked and ridiculed those who believe God's account of creation and those who hold a Biblical worldview. Evolution is NOT scientific fact as Matthews and others who reject the Biblical account of creation contend, but simply a "theory." It is a theory that many in the scientific community REJECT! To go on national TV and proclaim the LIE that science has proven evolution is the correct explanation for how the world came to be is not only dishonest, but shows how satan's advocates will tell a lie loud enough and long enough until the masses accept it as the truth.
The secular media does a great job of portraying Christians as ignorant, uneducated, foolish people who lay aside all reason to believe in fairy tales. The FACT is, Christianity is SUPPORTED by science, archeology, and history, and is not some blind leap in the dark. The Bible clearly answers all of the questions of life like where did we come from, why are we here, where are we going, something the world CANNOT explain! Those who adopt a non-Biblical worldview are forced to adopt any number of worldly explanations for life, leaving each person up to their own imagination to try and determine these basic answers about life.
Christians have removed ourselves so far from the culture, that we have virtually NO impact on the culture any longer, and when we do venture into the marketplace, we are quickly savaged by the minions of satan. Case in point, Sarah Palin. All politics aside, she was destroyed by the media for one reason, her stand on life that is contrary to the pro-death position of satan. Case in point, Carrie Perjean, Miss California. She has been brutalized for simply taking a personal stand that marriage is between a man and a woman, incurring the wrath of the bold and brazen homosexual community.
I have spent the last 10 years of my life, virtually 24/7/365 in the marketplace in the secular media, on the Internet, reaching out to the masses outside the four walls of the church. I can't even being to tell you the incredible warfare I deal with daily in taking on satan's minions head on each day. I fully understand why pastors hide behind their pulpits in the safety of their churches, why virtually all Christian ministries operate within the safety of the "Christian trough." Who needs the daily wars and the non-stop attacks. It is frustrating watching satan advance his cause because those who serve Christ either don't care enough or aren't strong enough to take a stand for Him
People tear into me all the time for lambasting those like Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, TD Jakes, and others who have large national platforms. That is because I KNOW that for a fraction of what these guys generate for their own kingdom, incredible headway could be made in our culture for God's Kingdom. Sadly, these men and many others have decided, like most of the priests and leaders on the Old Testament, that leading this nation to God and righteousness wasn't as important as creating their own following for the temporal riches and rewards of this world. They were more interested in pleasing men than God!
I have been at this for nearly 20 years now. Let me lay this out to you so anyone can understand it. Why does Limbaugh have the political clout he does? A three-hour daily radio program. Why can Oprah shut down Kentucky Fried Chicken? Because of a one-hour daily TV program. Nobody on secular TV or radio is going to put on a program that takes a Biblical worldview on the issues of the day. It "offends" too many people.
However, with the glut of TV and radio outlets, there are ample opportunities to BUY your way into a national daily radio and TV slot. It is critical to buy the time so they can't censor the content. For $12 million, we can buy one year of air time, an hour a day Monday-Friday nationally on TV and radio, and have the vehicle that can lead this nation back to God and to His Truth, and save souls in the process. Twelve million. In the world's scheme, that is nothing! If it was this easy, why hasn't someone else done it? I wish I could tell you. Sadly, those who generate these type of dollars are more interested in their agenda than God's!
The FACT is, there are millions out there who love the Lord, and are simply looking for a way to have their voice heard and make their life count. They will support such a vehicle to enable the programs to go on past that first year, just like they support those voices who simply preach to the choir. I could care less about worldy riches, fame or fortune, or I would not have been doing what I have for the past 20 years. My only goal is to see this nation return to God and to His Truth and see souls saved!
That national daily radio and TV program on secular networks is the vehicle that can bring millions of true followers of Christ together. It can become what Christians don't currently have nationally in the secular media, an ADVOCATE FOR BIBLICAL TRUTH AND FOR CHRIST! I have appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, and Christians are marginalized, treated as weird, strange people. The credibility of a national daily TV and radio program would give us a voice in the national media that these other media outlets can't control and dictate with their spin.
No longer can people like Matthews say the outrageous things he does about the faith and not be held accountable. No longer will someone like Sarah Palin or Carrie Perjean be demonized without an ADVOCATE in that same world to stand with them. If we are truly going to take on satan, we have to take him on on his turf! IF THE TOOLS OF SATAN CAN BE SUCH GREAT ADVOCATES FOR THE ENEMY, WE SHOULD BE EVEN GREATER ADVOCATES FOR CHRIST AND HIS TRUTH!!!
I love you and care about you so much. This is why we have been ineffective in fighting the advocates of satan. Those ministries and Christian groups with the resources, choose to invest them in the Christian media where they can MAKE MONEY! They aren't interested in saving souls or in standing for Christ in the marketplace. As a matter of fact, every time they get the chance, the RUN. Osteen brags about not talking about sin. Warren gets on his knees and begs the sodomite community to forgive him for standing for traditional marriage. With "leaders" like this, it is no wonder why we have little to no impact on our culture!!!
I can only encourage you today. God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. God gave me the vision for the Jonah Project last July. It is in place, we are adding people daily, and now is your opportunity to take a real stand for Christ. God is calling you today, wants to use you today to help bring revival to this nation. yes, eventfully we will be judged for our sins and wickedness, but I believe we can stay God's hand of judgment just like Nineveh did.
Over 120,000 souls were saved in Nineveh because they turned to God! I believe that we can see millions repent and turn to God in the wake of this revival. You can keep living your life, taking care of yourself, or you can sacrifice your life and allow God to use you for His glory. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God. Read that again. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God.
Please pray today about signing up and being part of the Jonah Project, God's vehicle to lead this nation back to Himself, to His Truth, and millions to faith in Christ. Go to: www.liveprayer.com/jonah and what the 7 min. vision video, get sign up. Also, get this Devotional to everyone that you know and share the link to the Jonah Project with every person you can communicate with. This is the answer for this nation and for millions of people who are looking for answers and hope in their life. This nation is in spiritual freefall and turning back to God and His Truth is our only hope!!!
***The 300 Update: So far, 20 people have contacted me to let me know they would be part of the 300 I need to make a special commitment of $1,000/mo from April thru December in order for Liveprayer to pay off ALL remaining debt, and cover our existing monthly operational costs as we build a base of at least 1 million people in the Jonah Project to immediately lead this nation back to God and His Truth. Please pray today about making the sacrifice to be part of this special group of people God is putting together.
If God is calling you to be one of the 300, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who can't make this type of commitment, know that whatever you give is just as important, since we need to bring in $345,000 each month from April thru December, and your faithfulness and sacrifice is critical for that remaining $45,000 each month.
