Daily Devotional for Wednesday February 4, 2015
A Look at How Brief Our Life Is
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, I pray for my friend today, that you grant your strength to accomplish all that is before them. May they call on that strength only you can provide, listen to your "still small voice," and know that with you ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! Grant them victory in their daily battles and let them give you all praise, honor, and glory. In the name of Jesus we pray. AMEN!
"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
A look at how brief our life is and the small window we have to make an impact on the world of our day! The prophet Jeremiah is 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."
-HBO is promoting a new program on "drag queens," Inside Edition now has a transgendered reporter, while programs promoting and glorifying homosexuality are now on ALL major TV networks in prime time.
-The movie "50 Shades of Gray" is nothing but Hollywood getting into the porn business. Over 20% of the movie is sex scenes as promoting devinat sexual behavior is now mainstream.
-That "peaceful religion" has murdered the Jordanian pilot they had captured by putting him into a cage, dousing him with gasoline, and lighting him on fire, literally burning him to death as he screamed in pain and horror.
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!
As Jeremiah prophesied to the children of Israel to turn from their idolatry, their sin and rebellion, and back to God or suffer His wrath and punishment. Sadly, they did not listen. As I share the same prophetic word, that unless this nation turns from its' sin, its' rebellion, its' worship of false gods and idols, and back to God and His truth, we will suffer God's wrath and punishment also!
I am here, fighting on the front lines as I have been faithfully for the past 22 yrs, 16 yrs online and 12 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 to turn back to their Creator!
Peace comes over me when I released my hurt and pain from this battle to the Lord and 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 vow to stay on the floor of the arena fighting satan for souls and the soul of this nation until they shut off the website and stop airing the signal for TV!!!
I love you and care about you so much. Our life is brief and there is a small window we have to make an impact on the world of our day like Jeremiah did in his day. Please pray about making a real sacrifce today to help me. Together, with God's help, we can save the soul of this nation and in the process the souls of millions who otherwise will die and end up for all eternity in hell! Thank You!!!
