Daily Devotional for Friday September 13, 2013
Don't Believe Me Yet that God's Judgment is Raining Down on this Nation
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, with the legitimate worry that one day America may suffer a financial collapse, what stand should believers be prepared to take against those who might choose to exploit them if a break down in law and order occurs? Should believers adopt the typical armed and ready "prepper" mentality that many are encouraging? Should believers be prepared to use force of arms to repel those who would plunder them?
ANSWER: The Bible clearly teaches us to be prepared. It also clearly teaches moderation. Those who are so consumed with "prepping," are not living their life, but preparing for a life that may never come. The key is to live today, don't fear tomorrow, but do your best to prepare for changes that may come. If Beck and the other doom and gloomers who are making tens of millions off of scaring people are right, and there is a total collapse of the financial system, there is very little you will be able to do. Whatever food you store, no matter how many guns and bullets you buy, they will be gone sooner than later. I refuse to live in fear or with an apocalyptic mindset. I have chosen to prepare to some extent, but focus instead on living each day to its' fullest, since the fact is tomorrow is promised to NONE of us. At some point, our faith in the Lord has to become our strenght and hope regardless what things may look like.
"If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God." Deuteronomy 8:19, 20
Don't believe me yet that God's judgment is raining down on this nation??? I told you during the last election that whoever God allowed to rise to power, it would be a furtherance of His judgment on this nation. Had He allowed Romney, a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel, that cult would have become mainstream worldwide and countless millions of souls would have been aggressively recruited to the "church of the US President" and ended up in hell for all eternity. It would have resulted in irreparable spiritual damage exacerbating the spiritual freefall we are already in.
(For the record, since he is now lying about his personal relationship with his cult brother Mitt Romney and trying to distance himself from Romney, as I shared prior to the election satanic Mormon cult member Glenn Beck hosted many private fundraising events for Romney and used the full weight of all of his resources both personal and professional to try and elect the first Mormon President in fulfillment of the Mormon "White Horse Prophecy." Warning: Beck is now asking people to use his email service. What a recruiting list for his cult that will be, just like all emails he captures via his various projects are being used by his cult despite his LIES that they are kept private!)
Having allowed President Obama to stay in power, God's judgment is falling in a way we are watching unfold right before our eyes. After helping Muslim theocrats to gain unprecedented power in Egypt and Libya, Syria is next. By all responsible accounts, the opposition to the current Syrian government are made up of hard core Muslim theocrats as were the opposition fighters in Egypt and Syria. As he has by design, through gross incompetence, or some of both, the greatest power in the world, the United States of America, is now a distant 3 behind China (who technically owns us financially) and now Russia.
This bogus diplomatic deal Russia is supposed to broker with Syria is so laughable, only a complete fool would give it a second worth of credibility. However, President Obama has so compromised himself and this nation, he has no choice but to get on board. Russian President Putin, the former head of the KGB, has an Op-Ed in the Thursday New York Times openly mocking the US and gloating over his control of the Syria situation.
In his address to the nation Tuesday night, President Obama once again tried to make his case regarding Syria, whatever that case was since nobody really knows because he doesn't even know, by referring to the supposed use of chemical weapons by Assad and the Syrian regime.. As egregious as chemical weapons may be, I am at a loss why the 100,000 opponents of the Syrian government who have been killed during the past 2 years of civil war were killed any more legitimately than the apx 1,400 who died via the gas attacks.
Even more disgusting was the continued use of referring to the 400 children who died in the gas attacks by President Obama, as well as Secretary Kerry and other White Hose surrogates who claim we have a "moral responsibility" to be involved because of the horrible way those children were killed. Again, lots of children have died over the past 2 years of this civil war, and not sure why their death isn't as "morally outrageous" as the children who were killed with gas.
The unconscionable "moral argument" they try to make totally leaves out the fact that apx. 4,000 innocent babies are slaughtered in this nation every 24 hours. As they described the horror of children dying via the gas attack, I wondered why that is any more horrible than a "doctor" putting a pair of pliers inside of a woman, grabbing the skull of a baby, ripping that baby from the womb, and crushing the skull to insure the baby is dead.
PRESIDENT OBAMA, SECRETARY KERRY, AND THOSE MAKING THE "MORAL ARGUMENT" REGARDING THE DEAD CHILDREN IN SYRIA ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO PROMOTE, SUPPORT, AND HELP INSURE 4,000 INNOCENT BABIES CAN BE SLAUGHTERED EVERY 24 HOURS IN THIS NATION!!!
Don't believe me yet that God's judgment is raining down on this nation???
Pope Francis, the head of the world's 1.2 BILLION Roman Catholics has doubled down on his gross theological mis-statements from a few months ago when he reiterated that you don't have to believe in God to get to Heaven. What??? He erroneously claims that atheists who deny the very presence of God can still make it to heaven! He also takes a very soft stance on the sin of homosexuality. While I understand this may be "good for business" in adding members and thus dollars, it is a lie from the lips of satan that will help lead countless souls to hell!
I could go on since the examples of God's judgment are flooding in daily now. Suffice it to say that with each passing day God is pouring out His judgment and wrath on this nation for our sins and rebellion to our Creator and His Truth. We have forsaken God for the false gods and idols man has created in his rebellious imagination and as He promised in Deuteronomy 8:19,20, He will eventually destroy us!
I have been scouring the Internet for the past year trying to find just ONE ministry with the God-inspired vision to lead this nation back to God and His Truth before we no longer have that opportunity. All I find are those selling books, tapes, other resources, the typical conferences they want people to come to, the endless money raising schemes on Christian TV, and those with a "vision" for a new building, a private jet, a new Bentley and mansion since that means God is blessing them!
These same people basically say to hell with the lost outside of their little empire needlessly dying and burning in hell for all eternity. To hell with this nation under God's judgment that could be wiped out at any moment. Sadly, most pastors and ministry leaders are no different than the priests in the OT as the nation around them was in spritual freefall and preparing to come under God's judgment. They were too busy building their private kingdom and living "large" to care. Meanwhile, the prophet would faithfully try to warn the people and for their efforts they were beaten, spat upon, reviled, hated, thrown into prison, and often killed!
I love you and care about you so much. Don't believe me yet that God's judgment is raining down on this nation??? God raised up and has sustained Liveprayer over 14+ years now for this moment in time. He knew I could not be bought, would not compromise His Truth, and would faithfully deliver his warnings. I wake up every morning knowing we that before it is too late we can have that "Nineveh moment" and see a real national revival, a turning back to God and His Truth, and see his wrath and judgment spared for a season of blessing.
I can tell you without hesitation that revival and a true move of God will come OUTSIDE of the current church structure that is so fragmented, politically correct, weak, apathetic, bloated, visionless, and isolated from the real world. It will come from people today who are currently on drugs, in prison, mock God, and have dismissed Biblcial Truth for the lies of this fallen world. THESE are the people who will hear the Gospel, accept it, be on fire, and rise up in purity of purpose void of the baggage that weighs down so many.
There is still a remnant, 7,000 who won't bow their knee to baal. We are bringing that remnant together through Liveprayer.com and the TV program. That is why I ask you to pray for me each day, and ask you to make the sacrifce to support God's work here. I don't need millions to do what God has called us to do because I don't have to pay for buildings, or staffs of people, or Bentley's, or mansions, or private jets, or a lifestyle like the ruler of a small nation!
I SIMPLY NEED YOUR HELP EACH MONTH TO BRING HIS TRUTH AND HOPE TO THE LOST AND HURTING OUTSIDE THE FOUR WALLS OF THE CHURCH AND TO INSPIRE THE VISION IN PEOPLE'S HEARTS THAT WE CAN SEE A REAL REVIVAL AND TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
