Daily Devotional for Thursday February 12, 2015
The Headlines are Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God
(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, bless me this day to have the courage to stand up for YOUR TRUTH in my daily life. Give me boldness to proclaim YOUR TRUTH when I am with those who mock and demean our faith in Christ and for following the teachings of the Bible. No matter what they may say, let me be not afraid to stand for you. In Jesus name...AMEN!
Part Two of Two
The headlines of the past few days are SCREAMING for a nation to turn back to God! The clear signs are being seen here and around the world that the judgment of God is falling, and our ONLY hope is to turn back to God and His Truth! As you read through these news headlines and the comments I made to help you see these individual issues in the context of the overall spiritual state of our nation, remember God's hand of protection and blessings is OFF this nation! These are simply a few of the current daily signs to a lost and hurting nation in spiritual freefall to turn back to our Creator and His Truth, or we will face His ultimate wrath and judgment as the children of Israel did many times for their sin and rebellion!!!
-Pray for Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress in a few weeks. The people of the United States need to hear a real leader speak for once, and hear the real truth about Iran. President Obama and this administration are aiding the evil forces who control Iran to acquire nuclear capabilities that will put Israel in even great danger than they are each day as it is. It is disgusting how the United States is being played for the fool by, and actually aiding the Iranians in their quest to control much of the Middle East.
-The plan of the Obama administration to start controlling the internet is finally out. I told people 16 years ago when Liveprayer first began that there would come a day when the government would do all they could to control the content of the internet. A website like Liveprayer will be the first one they go after, claiming that we traffic in hate speech and incite people to violence against those we disagree with. This is already the claim of far-left groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center who for years have had me on their "hate map" right next to real anarchists and violent groups like the neo-Nazis and skinheads.
-While we have been pre-occupied with ISIS, Brian Williams, and Bruce Jenner's change from being a man into a woman, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been busy working on annexing the rest of the Ukraine as well as other former territories of the old Soviet Union, which is his ultimate goal. Despite some "meetings" with Germany and France over the violence in the Ukraine, there is nobody (including the US) with any will or power to challenge Putin's power grab.
-Muslim advocacy group with ties to terror organizations (and the US government), CAIR, has invited President Obama to visit some of the great mosques...in the United States!
-Janet Yellen, head of the Federal Reserve, is balking at any attempts by Congress to audit or provide any legitimate oversight of the Fed. This is actually one area former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, and now his son Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, are on the money. IF, the Federal Reserve was every audited, it would be like opening a manhole cover in a city like Chicago or New York, and watching the endless armies of rats scurry about. I have LONG told you the US economy is nothing but smoke and mirrors. If they ever raise interest rates even a fraction of a point, or worse, stop printing billions of dollars every quarter, the whole system could come crashing down virtually overnight. THIS IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A WAY GOD COULD BRING IMMEDIATE AND PAINFUL JUDGMENT ON THIS NATION THAT WOULD AFFECT EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD, AND REEK HAVOC THROUGHOUT THE GLOBAL ECONOMY!
-If you own a "smart TV," with voice recognition and/or a camera, or use an X-Box or other gaming system online, chances are good everything you say is being recorded by a "third party."
-80 million people associated with the major health insurer Anthem have had their personal information hacked into and stolen, most likely by the Chinese government. As I shared in a recent Devotional, our cyber infrastructure is vulnerable and ALL of your personal information regarding every aspect of your life is available to whoever wants it, anywhere in the world, for whatever reason.
-President Obama finally showed he is angry about something...an American company who refused to lose tens of millions of dollars by paying for his destructive healthcare plan! Tens of millions of people who have yet to personally feel the effects of the destructive "Obamacare," are starting to as the employer mandate the President illegally delayed for 3 consecutive election cycles is now upon companies large and small. Staples, the mega-office supply chain, is doing what most major corporations have done or will be doing, as they cut full-time employees hours in order to avoid the punishing excess costs Obamacare will cost. Between lost hours, lost health care benefits, and Obamacare related fines, tens of millions of people are going to personally feel the pain of this failed takeover by the government of the healthcare industry.
-A Seminole County (north of Orlando) Florida school gave students as a homework assignment the task of memorizing Islamic prayers. The curriculum was put together by the Muslim advocacy group with ties to terror organizations (and our government) CAIR.
-A human rights report was released lambasting ISIS for crucifying, beheading, and burying alive children. As disgusting and outrageous as those horrific are, it is hard to say anything when every 24 hours apx. 4,000 babies in this nation are slaughtered as they are literally sucked out of their mother's womb!
I love and care about you so much. God is showing us DAILY that we must stop, turn back to Him and His Truth or be destroyed as He promised to do in today's anchor verse. I wake up every day with the knowledge and understanding that we can still be like the people of Nineveh and that 2015 will be a year of victory as our verse for the year states, "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!"
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
