Daily Devotional for Tuesday May 19, 2009
Why the Closing of Car Dealers Matters to Christians
Why the closing of car dealers matters to Christians! I am sure most people don't fully appreciate what is really happening with the closing of nearly 2,000 auto dealerships around the country. THIS IS A HUGE DEAL AND PEOPLE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION!!! The reason this is a big deal is because these are vibrant, active, PROFITABLE businesses that are only being closed because King Obama is forcing the auto makers to close them!!!
At first glance, this may seem impossible. After all, the goal of the government is to stimulate business, not shut it down. However, now that the government is dictating to the auto makers on how to operate their businesses, they are directly responsible for this closure of nearly 2,000 dealerships. Most of these dealerships are very successful businesses and have been stable forces in their communities for decades. They employ hundreds of people and dozens of vendors have their business directly tied to these dealerships.
So the question has to be, why? The answer is the government is not as interested in businesses succeeding as they are in their control over entire sectors of the economy. They have virtually taken over the banking and financial sector, the real-estate sector, and now the auto sector. While not officially being in control of any of these industries, the reality is they have TOTAL CONTROL!
The next three sectors the government is openly targeting are energy, education, and health care. Watch over the coming months as the government takes a huge role in all three of these industries. Once that happens, the media is one of the two remaining major sectors for the government to control, and the fact is, the bulk of the media is already carrying the water for the Obama administration.
What is the last sector? RELIGION! Please, don't be lulled to sleep that this administration does not want to control religion as well. President Obama made a huge effort to take control of the religious tone and conversation in the nation during his Presidential run. Once in the White House, he has continued that quest. Why were people so surprised he kept President Bush's Faith Based Office? Simple. It gives the government the financial lever to control those organizations who get government money!
However, Obama has much larger aspirations when it comes to religion. He has been building a solid coalition over the years of Christian leaders who have sold out the faith to do business with the world like Rick Warren, other liberal "Christians" like the President of Notre Dame, as well as those who represent other faiths. It is a mini version of what the world will experience when the anti-Christ comes to power and establishes a one-world religion. His speech at Notre Dame Sunday was very telling of his mindset as he looks to control the religious tone and conversation in this nation.
Oh, there will still be "freedom of religion," but those who are dogmatic and not playing the ecumenical game of compromise, will be targeted as purveyors of hate speech and a danger to the nation. As long as you compromise the Truths of the Bible, stay in your church or in the ineffective Christian media, and don't challenge the governments anti-Biblical positions on every issue, you will be fine.
Whether you understand it or not, there is an unGodly king on the throne who like Ahab, is going to make life miserable for any true prophet of God who calls the people to repentance and to turn back to God and His Truth. Like the wicked kings of Israel, they will control the priests of the day with power and money, but there will be those few God raises up who care less about the temporal things of this world, but only in fulfilling God's call on their life at this critical moment in human history with the soul of this nation hanging in the balance!
I love you and care about you so much. Why does the fact that 1,900 car dealers, most vibrant successful businesses, were given pink slips last week matter to Christians? It is because the government is looking to control all major sectors of our nation's daily life, INCLUDING RELIGION! There will come a day very soon, sooner than most think, when you will remember these words.
This is why I am pushing so hard to bring together true Believers in Jesus Christ to help lead this nation back to God and to His Truth as quickly as possible. We simply don't have much time left. The freedoms we have taken for granted are soon going to be gone. Our ability to challenge the government and effect any real change in our culture is fading fast. There is precious time left.
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.

The battle for the souls of this nation is not lost yet, and by turning back to God and His Truth it can be won!!!
