What Can We Expect if God Removes His Hand of Protection from This Nation
(Romans 11:2-5, Isaiah 5:20)
What can we expect if God removes His hand of protection and blessing from this nation? I have told you for a year now that the most critical thing to watch for in the upcoming election for the next President of the United States is not who will win in November, but who will run. The fact is, it doesn't matter who wins. Let me repeat that, it doesn't matter who wins. The reason it doesn't matter is that the real problems in this nation aren't political, they are spiritual! There is NO POLITICIAN equipped or with the goal of dealing with the true problems that face our nation. The only difference the winner will make is they will slow down or speed up the spiritual decline we are currently experiencing.
As I shared with you last November, the key to the upcoming race for President is who will be representing the Republican and Democratic parties. That is what you want to be watching for. It is a given that President Obama will be representing the Democrats, and if satanic Mormon cult member Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination, that means the election will literally be satan flipping a two-headed coin and his head is on both sides. More important, it means that God has finally removed His hand of protection and blessing from this nation!
What does that mean, if God removes His hand of protection and blessing from this nation? It most likely will not mean on election night that fire and brimstone will rain down upon the nation like it did on Sodom and Gomorrah, though I am certain they never expected such an event. What it will mean is that we will now be on our own. We will be like the children of Israel wandering in the desert for those 40 years. GOD WILL HAVE FINALLY ABANDONED US AND WE WILL BE ON OUR OWN!!!
What you can expect is an exacerbation of evil. Whatever sexual perversions exist today will be multiplied exponentially. Vices like alcohol, drugs, and gambling will enslave tens of millions more than they do today. All mention of God will be eliminated from the public square. While false religions like Islam, cults like Scientology and Mormonism, the new age philosophies, all designed by satan to lead souls to hell will flourish, Christianity will come under persecution like never before. The ability to freely share the Gospel will be curtailed like we never imagined.
BEING A HIGH PROFILE CHRISTIAN WILL NO LONGER BRING POPULARITY, FAME AND GREAT FINANCIAL REWARDS, BUT WILL ACTUALLY COST SOMETHING..EVEN YOUR LIFE! Why do you think most high profile "Christian leaders" today are so experienced at compromise and selling out? Why do you think I have hammered this point home so often over the years? When the hand of God comes off this nation, what will be left of open and free "Christianity" will be those who accept gross sins like abortion and homosexuality, those who deny the inspiration and inerrancy of the Scripture, those who embrace man-made watered-down marketing strategies like the seeker/purpose driven/emerging church/prosperity movements, and those who allow the world to dictate to them what they can preach and teach.
True Christians, those who refuse to bow their knee to baal and compromise on Biblical Truth will be ostracized, labeled as radical hate-mongers and bigots, and forced underground. In just the 13 years of Liveprayer, I have seen how just preaching the pure Truth of God's Word has made me a pariah to most churches, a trouble maker to those in high profile ministries, and a hate-filled bigoted radical to the unbelieving world. Why do you think the world embraces gutless "Christians" like a Joel Osteen and thoroughly rejects someone like myself who dares to simply tell the truth as God stated it in the Bible?
I think back when God took His hand of protection and blessing from the children of Israel. As painful a period of time as it was, He always had a remnant, He always had a people. There were always those who refuse to bow their knee to baal and sell out the Lord. It will be the same today. Should this coming election end up being satan vs. satan, it will be a sad and most difficult time for this nation. Whatever hardships people think they have today will be multiplied exponentially.
It has only been God's mercy that has stayed His full wrath and punishment from being unleashed on this wicked nation. I am afraid that our time is about up. But fear not! God will always hear the prayers of His people. God will continue to watch over and protect those who have been faithful to Him. We still have a precious few months left to change the spiritual course of this nation, but the sands in the hourglass have about run out. We most act now!
I love you and care about you so much. God has uniquely positioned Liveprayer in these last days to be a catalyst to rally and lead His remnant, to sound the trump of warning, in the marketplace and help guide His remnant to lead this nation back to God and His Truth for a season. It is amazing what God can do with only a few who are completely and unconditionally sold out to Him!
In just 144 months, Liveprayer, one small work of God operated out of the back of a used car lot, has literally impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide through the Internet and secular media, responded to just under 80 million emails for prayer, have over 6 million praise reports archived, and seen over 600,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus Christ.
Today, I am looking for just 7,000 who refuse to bow their knee to Baal and will go to their death faithfully serving the Lord. We have set up a special web page for "The Remnant" at: www.liveprayer.com/remnant.cfm . Please take a minute and go there, read what being part of the remnant means, and take your stand to be one of the 7,000 who will make up the remnant in these last days.
The fact is, every person has gifts and talents God has bestowed upon them. Some have more than others, but everyone has something God has blessed them to be able to do. It is time for the remnant to rise up where God has planted you and take your stand for Him! Where you live, where you work or go to school, where you shop, where you recreate, none of that is by accident. God has placed you in strategic places in these last days to be His voice. Pray, seek the face of the Lord, ask Him for courage and boldness, and use your life to serve and glorify Him as He opens the doors, while without shame proclaiming to all he brings into your life that Jesus is their only hope and only answer!
I am also asking those 7,000 who become part of the remnant to pray about making a sacrifce of $300 between now and the end of March to God's work here at Liveprayer. God has opened several unique doors for Liveprayer to have a visible and prominent voice in the mainstream media. It is a needed and critical voice that will give one voice to all in the remnant as we take on the lies of satan and stand for Biblical Truth in the marketplace, something NOBODY is doing on a national secular media stage. Again, having a strong unified voice is the key for the remnant to be successful in helping to turn this nation back to God and His Truth while leading lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ. It will be the sacrifce of those in the remnant, the sacrifce of their time, talent, and treasure, that will give us the tools we need to see victory!
THE FACT IS, WE CAN SEE POSITIVE MOVEMENT IN THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION, A TRUE CHANGE IN THE SPIRITUAL LIFE OF THIS NATION IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. WE HAVE THE TOOLS, GOD HAS THE PEOPLE (HIS REMNANT), AND THE FUNDS NECESSARY ARE MINISCULE IN COMPARISON TO WHAT THE WORLD SPENDS TO LEAD SOULS TO HELL. THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO STAND FOR THE LORD AS THE REMNANT HAS ALWAYS STOOD. MAY HISTORY SHOW WE WERE FAITHFUL!
LIVEPRAYER WILL LEAD THE REMNANT AND ESTABLISH OUR POWERFUL VOICE FOR GOD'S TRUTH IN THE MARKETPLACE TO CALL OUR NATION AND THE WORLD TO REPENTANCE AND THE LOST TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. IT WILL BECOME A VOICE FOR THOSE WHO ARE THE TRUE REMNANT AND MOBILIZE THE FAITHFUL TO WIN VICTORIES OVER THE SOCIAL ISSUES OF OUR DAY AND LEAD THE LOST TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! TIME IS RUNNING OUT, THE HOUR IS UPON US, IT IS TIME TO ACT AND ACT DECISIVELY!!! WILL YOU BE PART OF GOD'S REMNANT???

In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
