Daily Devotional for Wednesday January 23, 2013
Faithfully and Without Compromise Preaching the Truth in the Marketplace
"He told them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.' Luke 10:2,3
I pray you and your family are well, and the new year off to a good start. The spiritual issues that are destroying this nation are becoming worse each day since they are being pushed on our culture with virtually zero opposition.
In the year 2013, over 80% of our churches are part of mainline denominations that have virtually forsaken Biblical Truth and souls for political correctness and entertainment, even to the point they support or simply refuse to speak out against gross sins like homosexuality, abortion, fornication, adultery and other sins. The vast percentage of the other 20% are the new man-made seeker/purpose driven marketing strategies that neuter God's Word in order to put warm bodies into the seats each Sunday.
While so many major ministries are building buildings, buying private jets, building their own kingdom., they are ignoring the culture that is rotting around them. Instead they choose to stay in the safety of the four walls of the church.
When have you ever seen ANY major pastor or Christian leader in the SECULAR media with a plan to lead this nation back to God and His Truth??? Sadly, the only time you see them in a secular environment is when they are selling books or promoting their own works. On the other hand, Liveprayer is only concerned about saving souls and leading this nation back to God and His Truth which is our ONLY HOPE!!!
Because Christians have left the culture for the safety of the "Christian trough" we have created for ourselves, we now have NO VOICE in the marketplace. The media has insured a Biblical worldview is never heard while they mock, demean, and demonize those who have put their faith in Jesus and Biblical Truth.
For nearly 14 yrs, Liveprayer has FAITHFULLY and WITHOUT COMPROMISE preached the Truth of God's Word IN THE MARKETPLACE!!!
Liveprayer.com reaches hundreds of thousand non-Christians DAILY in the marketplace with the Daily Devotionals. For 6 yrs, the Liveprayer TV program aired ONLY on secular stations and networks. I have been in the media constantly over the past decade, appearing FOX News, MSNBC, CNN, Howard Stern's program, and hundreds of radio and TV programs.
I have taken the heat that comes with going into such an environment to share what God's Word says about the issues of the day, while encouraging people Jesus is their only hope and that if they are hurting there is hope!!!
In over 20 yrs of ministry, I have totally given myself 100% literally 24/7 to serve the Lord. Every month I recieve 8-10 threats on my life that come in through the mail and by email. I have sacrificed and forsaken my own life for His these last 2 decades, and have proven I cannot be bought, won't compromise God's Truth, or ever back down from telling what God says until the Lord calls me Home!!!
Those who have followed Liveprayer for any length of time have seen me daily take my stand for the Lord without wavering no matter what satan bombards us with!!!
Our faithfulness and the prayers and sacrifces of those in the Liveprayer family has led to tens of millions of lives being impacted. Over 70 million emails for prayers have been answered. Nearly 7 million praise reports have been archived as a testimony to God's faithfulness. Most important, apx. 700,000 souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus!
ALL HAS BEEN POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE HAVE GONE TO THE MASSES OUTSIDE THE 4 WALLS OF THE CHURCH AND DECLARED HIS TRUTH AND HOPE, AND BECAUSE DEAR FRIENDS LIKE YOU HAVE PRAYED AND MADE THE SACRIFCE TO HELP SUPPORT GOD'S WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER!!!
As I come to you today, we are on the verge of finalizing all of the details for the Liveprayer TV program to be back on the air. It will be available nationwide and throughout the world on every type of device that exists today. This is the final piece I have been praying over and working towards the past 4 yrs that is critical to our work in leading this nation back to God and His Truth..THE ONLY HOPE THERE IS FOR OUR NATION!!!

I am asking EVERYONE of my friends to take a few moments today and pray about what you can do in the next few days so all of our basic operations are covered by the end of the month.
