Daily Devotional for Monday November 4, 2013
The Dirty Secret of Obamacare Nobody Wants to Talk About
***ASK BILL: My question is will God answer prayers for the salvation of another person by opening their minds or influencing their hearts even thought they have free will?
ANSWER: That needs to be our exact prayer for someone we know who is not saved. In the end, it still depends on each person making the decision for themselves, seeking forgiveness, repenting, turning from their sins, and accepting Jesus by faith. However, we need to pray that God will bring the right person across their path who can speak the words that they will at least hear and digest and open their heart to the love of Christ.
"They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters . . . and the land was polluted with blood . . . " (Psalms 106:38 NIV)
The dirty secret of Obamacare nobody wants to talk about! President Obama knew exactly what he was doing when he appointed Kathleen Sebelius as the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Sebelius is a purely evil woman who as Governor of Kansas, was a staunch supporter of George "the baby killer" Tiller and his practice of killing babies, even late in the third trimester when the baby could have lived outside of the womb! Needless to say Sebelius is a hero in the infanticide movement, and since her beliefs on this issue mirror the President's, who better to head up HHS!
I am not going to get into the politics of Obamacare, or the lies told by the President and his administration which were critical to get this legislation passed as well as him re-elected last November. Nor about the fact you will still have about the same number of people uninsured, the biggest percentage of those who do sign up will be through Medicare meaning they pay nothing but those who do have insurance will pay for them, nor that the group of young adults that need to sign-up for Obamacare to work financially will not, since a large percentage will be on their parents policy until they reach 26 years of age and the majority of the rest in that age group see no need for insurance.
This scam will not work in accomplishing anything but destroying an imperfect, but by far the greatest healthcare system in the world and leave the government as the only source of insurance for everyone but the very wealthy who can afford to pay cash. Months ago, I did a Daily Devotional on the Biblical debate about healthcare at: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5346
One part of the massive takeover of the nation's healthcare system in the 2,000 plus pages of Obamacare regulations I do want to talk about is that women will be able to get abortions in these new "better" plans that Obamacare mandates. In the end, everyone who has an insurance policy is going to be helping to pay for the slaughter of innocent babies!!! The few who have raised this issue, have been told that is not true, LIES just like being told you can keep your current policy, keep your doctor, and that you will see your premiums go down by about $2500!!!
I have shared with you in the past, we live in a culture of death. It is no wonder why the mentally disturbed don't think twice about getting guns, lots of ammo, and shooting innocent people at random with no thought to how precious life is. During these tragic events that are happening more frequently, never ONCE do I hear anyone, especially those who want to blame these tragedies on guns, speak of the FACT that every 24 hours we slaughter apx. 4,000 babies in this nation.
We grieve, and rightly so, for the innocent lives that are lost, yet we fail to even recognize or mention the FOUR THOUSAND INNOCENT CHILDREN who are killed every 24 hours in this nation!!!
God created man never to die. Physical and spiritual death were never part of God's plan for man. However, it was man, exercising his God-given free will that introduced both forms of death into the human experience. Death is from the pits of hell itself, while life is from God. Satan comes to KILL, steal, and destroy and is synonymous with death. It is through faith in Jesus Christ that man is promised everlasting life and conquers death. Christ came to give life and life abundantly and He is synonymous with life.
Sadly, this has become a nation that has embraced, even glorifies death. Because we have separated ourselves so far from God, we no longer value life. Life is no longer viewed as special or treated as sacred. Many people ask me why I talk about abortion so often and the fact we slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies in this nation every 24 hours.
It is because people have become numb and desensitized to death! I'll prove it to you. Let me ask you a very legitimate question. Answer honestly. Did you think at all today about the FACT that in the past 24 hours, apx 4,000 innocent babies were slaughtered in this nation? Did you?
We have simply come to live with the fact that we practice legalized infanticide and we don't even give it a second thought. People die in floods, fires, car wrecks hurricanes, tornadoes and we mourn. 3,000 innocent lives were lost on 9/11 and we consider that the greatest act of terror on our soil. Yet we don't even give a second thought to the fact that every 24 hours, another 4,000 innocent lives are destroyed! What kind of sick and perverted nation allows such a thing to happen?
We read in the Bible how Herod, after the birth of Jesus, sent his men to kill every baby under the age of two years. They literally ripped babies out of the arms of the mothers and killed them on the spot. Even though I have read that passage of Scripture 1,000 times, each time I read it in horror. What kind of monster would do such a thing to innocent babies? Yet, we are no better than Herod.
Our President, the figurehead of our nation, is another "Herod." He is the embodiment of this culture of death as he supports and advocates the killing of innocent babies. He will insure during his time in office that the practice of infanticide continues in this nation without any restrictions, and through his new healthcare scam will make those who have insurance policies pay for them!!!
Children are born into this culture of death and brainwashed from birth that life has no meaning. Through the media that bombards them with images of violence and death, to the games they play, they are desensitized to this culture of death from birth!!
I love you and care about you so much. Please wake up!!! We not only live in, but we accept this culture of death that hangs over our nation. Jesus came to deliver us from death. Jesus won the victory over death. We do not have to accept this black cloud of death that hangs over our land.
It is time Christians took our stand and loudly, boldly, visibly proclaimed LIFE! Children are growing up without any understanding of where life came from and how precious it is. So it is no wonder why they have embraced death to the extent they have.
I have answered the call to lead this charge to bring our nation back to God and Biblical values. We have the infrastructure and resources to do it through Liveprayer. I am asking you to say NO to this culture of death we are living in and say YES to life!!!
Don't underestimate how critical 15 minutes a day can be as you help me by following one, two, or all 3 of these action steps. People are saved daily, lives are impacted daily, because someone made the effort to share Liveprayer with that person. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND TAKE A REAL STAND FOR CHRIST EACH DAY!
1. Distribute Liveprayer Daily Devotional - I need people to take each day's Daily Devotional and forward it to everyone that you know. This is a great way to help spread God's Word on the Internet. Also, post it to various blogs and message boards that you frequent.
2. Jonah Project - Tell everyone that you know to check out the Jonah Project. This is the vehicle God has given us to bring together true followers of Jesus Christ in these last days in one group that can make an incredible impact on the spiritual course of this nation and in millions of people's lives. There is a vision video on the Jonah Project homepage that clearly lays out how God can use this group in these last days. You can access the Jonah Project website by going to Liveprayer.com and clicking on the Jonah Project link: http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/
3. Fundraising - Unlike other ministries, Liveprayer has ZERO paid fundraisers or development people. Again, I just never went the route all major ministries go of having a staff of people who do nothing but contact donors and go out to raise funds. All we do each day, all that we provide is made available for FREE to take God's Word into the marketplace and impact lives for Christ. Obviously it takes money to operate. I've simply shared our needs and walked by faith that God would provide each month.
Are you ready to take your stand for Christ??? Liveprayer is a life-changing vehicle God has been using for over 14 years now to impact literally tens of millions of lives all over the world. We have tapped into the great technology of our day to reach the world and individual lives with the Truth of God's Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
I can't do this alone. Now more than ever it is critical for each person who knows the Lord to step up and allow Him to use your life. I have given you 3 action steps. You can choose one, two, or all three depending on how the Lord is leading you.
I refuse to accept this culture of death we live in. I am asking you to take your stand for Christ and help me change this nation into a culture of LIFE, abundant now and everlasting through faith in Jesus Christ!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
