Daily Devotional for Tuesday October 9, 2012
The People Perish for Lack of Vision
"Where there is no vision, the people perish!" Today, I am speaking to you from a place I often have in the past 13 yrs, and that is as a modern day prophet of God. In the OT, the prophets of God FORETOLD what would happen in order to warn God's people. We now have the Bible, so modern day prophets are not "foretellers," but "forthtellers," sharing what God's Word is saying. In that office, I am telling you that the ONLY hope for this nation is to turn back to God and HIS TRUTH. If we do not, the wrath and judgment of God will rain down and this nation will no longer exist!
I am well aware that 95% of those reading these words today think I have lost it. I would say to you, go back through human history and look at the great nations, the great military powers of the last 6,000 years of human history. Rome, Greece, and other nations thought they were also going to last forever. In the end, God destroyed them and they ceased to exist! If we are so arrogant to think that what God did in the past He won't do today, than we deserve His wrath and punishment!
As God sent Johan to Nineveh, God has raised me up in this moment in human history in this very nation to share the same message Jonah did. The similarities are eerie. Jonah had no desire to do what God had called him to do and ran. Likewise, I also had no desire to do what God wanted from my life and ran. God sent a "big fish" to get Jonah's attention. God sent a "big fish" in the form of the US Government to get my attention.
In the end, Jonah and Bill Keller both decided doing what God called us to do was the best option. Just as Jonah faithfully warned Nineveh of the coming judgment of God, I have spent the past 20 yrs of my life warning this nation of God's coming judgment! Jonah warned Nineveh of God's impending judgment if they didn't repent, turn back to God and His Truth. I have been warning this nation that God's wrath and judgment is imminent if we don't repent and turn back to God and Biblicla Truth!!!
Every day at Liveprayer we hear from tens of thousands of people. It is funny that the lost KNOW there is something wrong in their life and in this nation. They can't articulate what it is, but they know! I have never doubted that revival will come to this nation through those OUTSIDE the four walls of the church! The church of today is so compromised, so far away from what the church is supposed to be, so divided, it hasn't got the ability to usher in a true revival. That revival is possible, and it will happen outside the four wall so the church!
People are hurting. People are lost. People are looking for real hope and real answers! The fact is, by reaching the masses, people will respond!!!! Sadly, we have a very short window of opportunity. Our time to act is NOW!!! With all of the major ministries out there, I have had my assistant to follow them ALL for the past year in regard to what they are calling their followers to do. Sadly, they are asking their followers to help them buy a new Gulfsteam private jet, build new buildings, give them money so the person giving the money can be rich, and on and on and one! It is a shame that with the very life of this nation on the lie, not ONE is asking people to help them turn the nation back to God and His Truth and usher in a real revival!
I love you and care about you so much. In January, Liveprayer will have our TV program back on nationwide and accessible to people worldwide! It is the last piece of the puzzle I have been sharing with you for years we needed to see this nation fall on its' knees and turn back to God and His truth. Please be in prayer as we walk though this door the Lord has opened. The reality is people are OPEN to a message of true hope and change. People are LOOKING for real answers for their life. We know the ONLY truth hope and change, the real answers are in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
The Bible says the people perish for lack of vision. That is so true! We have the vision of what needs to happen to save this nation. We have the vehicles to get it done. May eternity show we were faithful to fulfill what God has called us to do in order to stay His hand of judgment for a season as we see a great harvest of souls in these final days!!!!
***As we are 8 days into our 157th month of Liveprayer, we still have to cover $25,000 from our September shortfall and begin to work on the $40,000 we need for our basic October operations. That is $65,000 we need over the next 23 days to end the month with all of our basic operations current. $20,000 of that September shortfall is seriously past due, and I am praying for 2-3 friends who are able, to step up and make a special one-time year-end gift to help me cover that amount in the next 24 hours.
I know many are going through difficult times financially, and we pray daily for the Lord to meet those needs. I also know that many are working, seeing nice returns on their investments, have businesses that are doing well. If God is blessing you through these difficult days, please pray about helping me. It was those who God had blessed who made it possible for us to impact tens of millions of lives around the world these past 13+ years, and now it is YOU who God is speaking to about helping me insure we are here daily for all of those who look to us in their time of need, while we share His hope and the salvation found only though Christ with over 2.4 million people worldwide for FREE each and every day.
