Daily Devotional for Thursday December 10, 2009
A Phrase came out of Nazi Germany, "Today the Jews"
A phrase came out of Nazi Germany, "Today the Jews." As the Jews began to be persecuted under Adolph Hitler, the fact is most Germans sat back and said/did nothing. Their attitude was that what was happening to the Jews didn't affect them. The fact is if you sit back in silence while one group is targeted, you will wake up tomorrow and it is YOU who is the target!
At this point, it should not be hard to understand what this current administration is up to. They are now in control of the banking and financial industries, the insurance industry, the auto industry, and very soon the entire health- care industry. In addition to that, there has been a separate "shadow government" put in place with these so-called "Czars." These are people who do not answer to Congress, only the President, and operate solely at his discretion with no checks and balances as our government was structured to operate under.
This should matter to all Christians because, trust me, today private businesses, tomorrow the church! The ultimate goal of this administration is the complete control of all aspects of daily life INCLUDING RELIGION! This is not paranoia but reality. The carefully orchestrated event at Notre Dame several week ago was about one thing, gaining control over the debate on abortion. Why do you think that on a Sunday, within 2 hours of the killing of late- term abortion doctor Tiller in Kansas, the President himself issued a message of shock, yet after the Ft. Hood massacre said NOTHING about the fact this was an act of a Muslim terrorist.
Be assured, the targets won't be pastors who stay in their pulpits, or the Christian media, since the church and Christian media have virtually zero impact on society. Why else would we have more churches, ministries than ever, yet at the same time a nation in spiritual freefall? Do you remember in the Old Testament during the reign of the various kings, when an evil king would come into power who he would go after? It wasn't the established religious community or the religious leaders of the day. IT WAS THE PROPHETS!
Read your Bible. The king wasn't concerned about the priests since most of them were either in his pocket, doing their own thing, or watering down the message so much they had little impact on the people. It was the prophet they always went after. The prophet of God couldn't be bought, he had no other agenda than God's, and he was the crazy one that would go into the public square and boldly tell the people the Truth from God without compromise or any concern for his own safety or life!
Trust me, the government will not be going after gutless wonders like Joel Osteen, or sell-outs like Rick Warren, or the prosperity pimps on Christian TV. They will be coming after the Bill Kellers who will stand firm and faithfully declare the whole Truth of the Bible in the public arena and call the nation to repentance and people to turn their lives to Jesus Christ. They will target those like me who have the audacity to call the President what he is, a baby killer, a man who favors the enemies of Israel, a friend of the homosexuals, and an enemy of God!
I love you and care about you so much. So what can Christians do? Since July 2008 when I launched the Jonah Project, I have tried to explain that we must come together as one, to speak with one voice with no personal agenda, only the agenda of God. Sadly, those who have large followings are more concerned about building their own kingdoms than God's. They aren't interested in leading the nation back to God, only finding people who agree with them so they can gain their financial support. This fiefdom mentally is why despite our numbers we have virtually zero influence on our culture.
NOT ONE NATIONAL MEDIA MINISTRY, MAJOR PASTOR, OR THOSE SELF-APPOINTED CHRISTIAN LEADERS ARE IN THE PUBLIC WITH ANY SORT OF PLAN OR GOAL TO CALL THIS NATION TO REPENTANCE AND THE PEOPLE TO TURN BACK TO GOD AND BIBLICAL TRUTH. NOT ONE!!!
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 watch the 7-minute 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. 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!!!
Remember, "Today the Jews!"
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
