Jeremiah, A Blueprint for Liveprayer
"This is what the Lord says: 'You say about this place, "It is a desolate waste, without people or animals." Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither people nor animals, there will be heard once more 11 the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord, saying, "Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; his love endures forever." For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,' says the Lord. Jeremiah 33:10,11
Jeremiah, a blueprint for Liveprayer! A quick summary of the Book of Jeremiah is that it is a book warning of God's sin and judgment, with the promise of hope and restoration. Sound familiar? In Jeremiah chapters 2-6 it speaks of Israel's sin and idolatry with a call to repentance. Chapters 7-10 speaks of Israel's corrupt worship. Chapters 11-20 is about Jeremiah and God wresting with Israel's sin, while 21-24 is an indictment of Israel's leaders. In Chapters 25-29 Jeremiah announces that Babylon would be God's tool of judgment, with chapters 30-33 the promise of hope and restoration.
Once again, sound familiar??? If you have been reading the Daily Devotional, especially since that prophetic message in November of 2007 about the year 2008 being the start of seeing the very real judgment and wrath of God being unleashed on this nation for our unrepentant sin and rebellion to our Creator. Over these past 7 years I have spoken of a corrupt and apostate church and church leadership, laid out the case how Islam could easily be the United States Babylon, with the hope that we could be like Nineveh and escape God's ultimate wrath and judgment for a season if we will repent and turn back to God and His Truth!!!
Look at just a few of the headlines in the news today!!!
-There is a battle in the Roman Catholic Church as Pope Francis has made statements like "God is not afraid of new things," and "who am I to judge," as he clearly is moving the church to accept the sin of homosexuality, gay marriage, and a host of politically liberal positions as he espouses a "social gospel."
-Pastor Brian Houston, the founding pastor of the Australian based Hillsong Church with satellite churches throughout the US, recently responded to a question about gay marriage by stating there needs to be an "ongoing conversation" within the church on the issue.
-The female Mayor of Houston, Texas who has chosen to engage in sex with other women recently used the city attorney to subpoena the sermons from various pastors in that city who have the audacity to speak out against the sin of homosexuality from the Bible (No, Cotton-candy Joel Osteen was not one of the pastors receiving a subpoena!). However, no such attempt to seize the writings and teachings from the cities Muslim Imam's who teach their followers the glory of jihad and that all of the world, including the US, will one day become an Islamic state where those who refuse to convert will be killed.
-Planned (how to kill your baby) Parenthood President Cecille Richards said in a recent interview that her abortion was "the right decision."
As I do daily, I refute for a worldwide online audience and our TV viewers the lies that people are being fed literally 24/7. While other ministries are hiding in their beautiful buildings preaching to the choir in order to raise the millions they need for even more beautiful buildings and all of the luxuries the world can offer, much like the priests in the OT were about building their kingdoms and not God's, Liveprayer has been without compromise bolding exposing satan's lies and bringing God's Truth to the issues of the day!
The Pope doesn't have to "judge" in regard to homosexuality, God already did in His Word calling it a sin from Genesis to Revelation. He is right, God is not afraid of "new things," but the sin he tries to defend is nothing new, it has been around since the Garden of Eden!!!
Likewise, the Hillsong pastor doesn't need to have an "ongoing conversation" about gay marriage, it has been a settled matter since Genesis chapter 3 when God Himself performed the first marriage and forever declared His holy institution to be between one man, and one woman, for one lifetime!!!
The Mayor of Houston is worried about the wrong people. All Christians will do is condemn her choice for the sin God calls it and pray for her to repent and turn her life to Jesus. If God allows Islam to take over this nation as He did Babylon to take over Israel, she will be one of the first they behead since that is how they deal with those who commit acts of homosexuality!!!
Lastly, Planned Parenthood President Cecille Richards may believe killing her baby was the right decision, for her, but I doubt her baby that she slaughtered in a premeditated fashion would agree!!!
I am here, fighting on the front lines as I have been faithfully for the past 22 yrs, 15+ yrs online and 11+ yrs on TV. I live in the blood drenched sands of the arena fighting satan and his minions daily for the souls of men! I was crying out to God last night, crying for a nation and people in rebellion to the Almighty and crying for God to move on the hearts of people who could help me at this critical time!
As I shared our serious financial dilemma yesterday regarding the $35,000 we still require to simply clear up all of our September operational costs along with the $40,000 we require for our October internet budget and $25,000 for our October TV budget, just $3,000 of that $100,000 required in the next 10 days came in. In my flesh I was terribly disappointed, wondering why after all of these years of faithfulness, never selling out for the money I could have easily acquired by doing so, never compromising God's Truth even when my very life was being threatened, was God not helping me???????
*FOR EVERYONE WHO PRAYED, THANK YOU! FOR THOSE WHO WERE LED AND ABLE TO HELP ME YESTERDAY, THANK YOU! MANY OF YOU MAKE GREAT SACRIFICES OFTEN TO INSURE THE ONGOING OPERATIONS OF LIVEPRAYER AND WITHOUT YOUR LOVE, PRAYERS, AND INCREDIBLE SACRIFCE WHAT WE DO EACH DAY WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE! I AM NOT UNGRATEFUL, JUST THE OPPOSITE. I NEVER FORGET EACH DAY WITHOUT YOU I WOULD NOT BE HERE. I AM SIMPLY HOPING TO CHALLENGE THOSE OF YOU GOD HAS BLESSED AND ARE ABLE TO SEE WHAT I SEE AND HELP ME, AS YOU MAY HAVE NEVER HELPED ANYONE BEFORE, SACRIFICING AS YOU HAVE NEVER SACRIFICED BEFORE. WE HAVE THE ANSWER IN THE LORD, AND WE HAVE THE TOOLS THROUGH LP.COM AND LPTV. I AM SIMPLY ASKING YOU TO HELP ME INSURE THESE TOOLS DON'T DIE!!!
Peace came over me when I released my hurt and pain to the Lord and promised Him that I would focus my every breath, every ounce of strength on what He has called me to do since that is all I can do. God has to help me, God has to send soldiers with the resources to support me, and I vowed to stay on the floor of the arena fighting satan until they shut off the website and stop airing the signal for TV.
It is HIS work, I am simply His servant. Having lived and breathed this work for the past 15 years and two months, literally 24/7/365 forsaking my life to serve the Lord, I see clearly where we are at and the hurts and pains of people in their daily lives. I also know the answer and my only desire is to share that answer with as many as I can, and be able to help wake up this nation that repenting of our sins, turning back to God and His Truth is our ONLY hope and our ONLY answer.
Please pray about helping me!!
***As we have only 10 days weeks left in October, we are still $4,000 short of covering the balance of our September shortfall for our basic internet operations, as well as the $28,000 we are behind as of the end of September for our Chicago TV contract, leaving us requiring immediately $32,000 so we can begin to work on the $65,000 we require for our basic October internet ($40,000) and TV operations ($25,000). --->That $4,000 left from our September shortfall and $26,000 of our October internet operations from the first weeks of this month are critically past due!!! I am desperately praying for one or two of our friends who God has blessed with the resources to help me with the $30,000 I require immediately for the ongoing operations of Liveprayer.com, to step up and allow the Lord to use you at this crucial time when now more than ever the often lone voice of Liveprayer must be heard loud and clear in the marketplace as we seek to turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
By the grace of God, our core TV operations that covers the satellite feeding over 80 stations nationally and our internet feed "live" every Monday-Friday from Midnight to 2am EDT are current through September! However, our separate contract for Chicago that represents a market of over 10 million people we reach on a major local station every Mon-Fri from 11p-1a (Chicago time) is $28,000 past due!
Since we are behind, the station has cut us back to just one hour for the balance of this month, and if we can't get our account current by THIS WEEK, they will cancel the program! We have fought to keep the incredible blessing God bestowed on us this past February, and every month we have more and more people helping us from the Chicagoland market so that we are only a few months away from having those costs 100% covered by our viewers.
--->Please PRAY and if you have the ability to help me with the $28,000 we need THIS WEEK to get current and be that "ram in the bush" or the "young man sacrificing his lunch so the multitudes could be fed," contact me at: email@example.com
***Pray about a special one-time year-end gift of $1,000 or more to help me insure Liveprayer continues to be a beacon of light to so many each day! Many will be getting a year-end bonus.
