A Look at What You will be Dealing with in Regards to Your Healthcare
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, Sometimes I wonder how you do it. You dish out an unpopular message to the world and you take abuse for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't you ever get tempted to soften the message in hopes of getting less persecution? And fitting in to the world with a weak, comfy Christian message?
ANSWER: This is a question I get every day. The answer surprisingly is NO! No sane person enjoys being persecuted, or taking the slings and arrows. No sane person would want to have 8-10 death threats a month as I have for over the past decade now. However, there IS a price to serving the Lord. Part of that price is to be persecuted, mocked, laughed at, and scorned. However, that is a small price to pay considering that Jesus went to the cross to pay for my sins, your sins, and the sins of all mankind! Softening the message is NOT an option, since like each of us, I will die one day and stand before God. I want that to be a great experience, and my life is dedicated to hearing His words, "Well done thou good and faithful servant!"
A look at what you will be dealing with in a very short time in regards to your healthcare! I warned people in 2009 during the big debate leading up to the non-stop lies by the President himself, daily misinformation, fabricated numbers, unrealistic promises, and political bribes that made Obamacare law, that what nobody was considering was how it would affect actual CARE!
For 15 years now, I have spent countless hours in many different VA hospitals around the nation ministering to our nation's heroes dealing with all types of health issues. I can honestly say I have never left ONE VA hospital, even one time, without wanting to cry. With the BILLIONS this nation throws away, literally, a President and First Lady who think nothing of taking vacations that cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars, many into the hundreds of millions of dollars, yet we can't properly tend to the medical needs of our nation's heroes?
A major scandal (What's new?) has erupted in Phoenix, Az concerning the VA hospital there and the death of at least 40 of our veterans from LACK OF CARE! The individual stories make your stomach turn, though the common thread is that many of the dead had been waiting for a simply examination or test up to a year or more! For anyone who has had to deal with the VA hospitals, or like me, has been intimately involved in the lives of vets who were being treated by the VA, it is not a surprise.
JUST LIKE EVERYONE IN THE NBA AND LOS ANGELES BUSINESS COMMUNITY KNEW FOR A DECADE OR MORE DONALD STERLING HELD RACIST VIEWS, PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD TO DEAL WITH THE VA FOR MEDICAL CARE KNOW IT IS A LIVING NIGHTMARE TO GET TIMELY CARE!!!
I am bringing this up today for you to pray about, as you lift up the families of those heroes who died for lack of care, as well as living vets today forced to deal with the VA to get the timely and competent care they deserve! I am also bringing this up today to give you a glimpse of what I told you would happen five years ago when the Obamacare discussions were going on, which at the end of the day would be the diminished ability by tens of millions to get TIMELY CARE. Just like in the current VA scandal, many of those who don't get that timely care will die because of it!!!
Use your common sense. Under Obamacare, fewer doctors, specialists, and hospitals will be participating. A significant percentage of doctors are leaving their pracitce and many hospitals will be closing for financial reasons. This simply means the number of people trying to see a shrinking number of doctors for medical care will wait longer for exams, tests, surgeries, and like in other nations with socialized medicine, PEOPLE WILL DIE FROM IT!!!
The real issue of Obamacare was not about a broken website that cost the US taxpayers ONE BILLION DOLLARS and counting. It wasn't even about the millions who were lied to by the President that they could keep their current plan and doctor in order to pass this law and continuation of those lies to get re-elected in November of 2012. It also isn't about the 50-100 million more people who will have their employer sponsored health plans cancelled in the coming year.
OBAMACARE IS REALLY ABOUT ONE THING...THE FURTHERANCE OF GOD'S JUDGMENT ON THIS NATION!!!
I warned you in late 2007 that you would begin to see the very visible judgment of God unleashed on this nation in 2008. It was only a few months into that new year the housing bubble burst and trillions of dollars of real estate equity was lost and virtually every person who owned property was affected in a negative way. The trickle down effect led to millions losing their job and shook the overall economy to the core like nothing we have experienced since the Great Depression in the last 1920's!
What you will see unfold in the coming years, just 6 years after the real estate meltdown, will be a meltdown of the healthcare system in this nation that is literally going to cause untold numbers of people to literally lose their life! This time, it isn't about people losing money on their real estate holdings or their job, it is literally going to be about people losing their life!!!
YOU ARE SEEING THE WRATH AND JUDGMENT OF GOD BEING UNLEASHED ON THIS NATION FOR OUR SINS AND REBELLION BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES!!!
This is a very short but critical message of warning today that I pray will open your eyes and ears to what is really going on in our nation today. We slaughter apx. 4,000 innocent babies each day, we have perverted God's Holy Institution of Marriage and Family, we have bowed down to worship every false god and idol man has created in his rebellious imagination, and now we are paying the price for our sin and rebellion!
I told you last November that I believe in 2014 we will see the beginning of a turn in the spiritual direction of this nation, and a real national revival across our land. I can only tell you this. If we don't turn back to God and back to His Truth..NOW..we will no longer have the opportunity. Sodom and Gomorrah had a chance but chose to continue living in all out rebellion to God and were destroyed. Nineveh had a chance to turn from their sins and did so, causing God to stay His hand of judgment on that nation for a season.
THE ONLY QUESTION THAT REMAINS TO BE ANSWERED IS WILL THE UNITED STATES BE SODOM AND GOMORRAH, OR WILL WE BE NINEVEH???
I love you and care about you so much. I have committed my final days of this life and all we have developed over 15 years on-line and our years on TV here at Liveprayer to do everything we can to see our nation follow the example of Nineveh. There is an increasing hunger for real answers, real truth, real hope. We know that the only real answer, truth, and hope for our nation and for each person is to turn to faith in Jesus and the Truth of God's Word!!!
2014 is going to be a YEAR OF NATIONAL REVIVAL! We will see a true revival in 2014, that spreads across the nation! YOU are part of making that happen through your support of God's work here at Liveprayer. This is our time! This is our moment! Now is OUR TIME TO STAND FOR GOD'S TRUTH!
Thank you for praying and thank you for making the sacrifce to help me. May history look back on our efforts for Christ and show our faithfulness as Heaven is packed full of souls who came to know Jesus through the work of Liveprayer!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
