Daily Devotional for Thursday June 27, 2013
Cheering for Satan
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, I've heard people say that the Bible speaks of a one world religion & government in the future. Where is that in the Bible?
ANSWER: It is in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 13, along with some prophetic passages in Daniel, it is clear that in the final days the Anti-Christ will come on the scene and enact a one-world government, one-world economy, and a one-world religion. With the chaos currently around the world, it is not hard to see how one individual could come up with an economic system for the world. That would require a one-world government. Once those two pieces are in place, instituting a one-world religion when there is a huge spiritual void in all of the nations of the world that are being controlled economically and politically will not be hard to bring about.
"Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done." Romans 1:28
Cheering for satan! I sat in silence Wednesday as the two Supreme Court rulings affecting gay marriage and defending God's definition for marriage were announced. I was not surprised at all by the decisions, and saddened that what I told people over ten years would happen regarding this issue has now come to fruition.
What appalled me even worse than the ruling, and should appall every follower of Christ, was the media who spent hours holding a great celebration that satan had won this battle! While FOX wasn't as exuberant, they certainly didn't condemn the rulings. On CNN, MSNBC, and the left leaning internet sites, you would have thought something great had just happened. In fact, for the followers of satan it was a day for great celebration!
If you ever needed a more clear picture of a nation in total and utter rebellion to God and His Truth, you got it Wednesday when the Supreme Court solidified that the radical homosexual agenda has not just been accepted by society, but now by the highest court in the land. I have told you for years that the Bible teaches in the last days the lie will become the truth and the truth a lie.
After not just legally locking in a perversion of God's Holy Institution of Marriage, the Supreme Court in their majority opinion basically called those who believe the Bible and hold to God's definition of marriage "enemies of the human race!!!"
Every black person in this nation should be OUTRAGED at how the radical homosexual lobby in this nation has hijacked a legitimate civil rights movement to advance their CHOICE of this perverted and deviant lifestyle under the guise of a "civil right!" That is no different than people who CHOOSE to bowl asking for special rights since they would claim it is a "civil right" to bowl!
A person has no control over the color of their sin, and to discriminate based on skin color IS a civil rights violation. However, taking your pants off to have sex is a CHOICE, and to seek special rights because of that CHOICE has zero to do with "civil rights!"
History will look back on this day like we do now on the Roe ruling of the Supreme Court in 1973 making slaughtering babies legal in this nation. It is a very sad day in the history of this nation, and a furtherance of God's judgment on our land.
*MY FRIEND, IF YOU NEED EVIDENCE GOD IS DONE WITH US, YOU NOW HAVE IT! It is no longer being in a place of depending on God's grace and mercy, they have run out. It is now only whether we as a nation will repent, turn back to God and His Truth or not before we are totally destroyed!
I really have nothing else to add other than I don't blame the homosexual activists but the church. Those who are blinded and lost in this sexual perversion are only doing what they know to do. You have to give them credit that for the past 30 years they have been relentless, working to advance their sinful cause literally 24/7/365 without stopping.
The church on the other hand, is too busy building state-of-the-art mini-stadiums to meet in costing millions of dollars that of course have ongoing costs for upkeep and maintenance. The church was too busy creating man-made marketing plans like purpose driven/seeker/emerging church/prosperity gospel to fill their plush mini-stadiums with warm bodies and not converts to the faith.
These are people they entertain for an hour each week, never taking the risk of offending anyone by talking about sin, hell, the consequences of a human soul that rejects Jesus, since they want to insure they will come back next week for their hour of entertainment, and of course, drop another check in the bucket to fund their fiefdom!
This sad day only affirms the Devotional I send on Tuesday of this week dealing with the "political pimps" of our day who have been total failures in what they have raised hundreds of millions of dollars over the years from Christian under the guise of fighting for Christian values. At the end of the day, they have failed and based on the rapid spiritual decline of this nation, had virtually ZERO affect over the issues they claim to work on Tues 6/25/13 DD: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5214
I love you and care about you so much. Now, do you understand why I am so passionate each day? Now, do you understand why I refuse to let satan block our efforts over a mere $25,000 that is need to simply cover our operations for June, or the $40,000 we need (apx. $1300/day, the budget of a local church with apx. 700 members who meet for an hour a week) each month to minister in a personal way to several million worldwide daily, respond to 40,000 emails for prayer daily, do the "live" TV program for 2 hours 5 nights a week, and see apx. 2,000 souls come to faith in Jesus each week?
Sadly, those who serve satan are not only relentless in their efforts to accomplish his goals of helping to "kill, steal, and destroy," but they will bring in hundreds of millions annually to support their efforts. For 14 years now, Liveprayer has fought this fight for our faith literally 24/7/365 to go toe to toe with satan and his minions. IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO SEE VICTORY! That is why I beg you to pray for me and help me with the most generous sacrifce you can.
Our time is now! Why every major ministry, those with tens of millions of dollars at their disposal, aren't in the marketplace taking on satan's minions is beyond me! God's judgment and punishment is only beginning. It is only going to get more severe. If you didn't believe me before, ask yourself if even 5 years ago you thought for a second you would live in a land where men would legally marry other men, women legally marry other women, and this perversion would have Supreme Court backing?
I have faithfully and without compromise served the Lord through Liveprayer for these past 14 years. What we have accomplished and my continued daily efforts have been there for all to see. The mainstream media and secular world hate me because they can't silence me. Sadly, I am not even well liked in the religious community since I can't be bought nor will I play their games.
We have been able to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide, see over 700,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus these past 14 years because of your prayers and support that enables me to get HIS Truth into the marketplace and put the pieces we have finally put into place to make a serious attempt at saving the souls of this nation while seeing a mighty harvest of souls!
