Daily Devotional for Friday February 20, 2015
The Hope We have is Found in Nineveh
Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day's journey into the city, proclaiming, "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown." The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. When Jonah's warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: "By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish." When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened. Jonah 3:3-10
Is it any coincidence that Biblical Nineveh is modern day Mosul in Iraq, that is the current headquarters of ISIS?
For those Liveprayer old timers, you know I have been warning and educating people about the false religion of Islam since we began 16 years ago, 2 years BEFORE 9/11.
I shared what God showed me in late 2007 that the judgment of God would fall in a very visible way that nobody could ignore unless they wanted to in 2008.
I warned people all throughout 2008 that if God allowed Barack Hussein Obama to become the 44th President of the nation, it would be a clear sign of His judgment on this country because he would be the most pro-death, pro-homosexual, anti-Israel, and pro-Islam President ever, opposing God on every spiritual issue facing the land.
After seeing wave after wave of God's judgment being poured out on the United States over these past 7+ years now, we are literally at the crossroads of God's ultimate judgment or turning back to our Creator and His Truth!
The hope we have lies in Nineveh! The Bible teaches that God is no respecter of person, and what He did for someone else He will do for you. That includes nations! Nineveh was a wicked, secular nation, yet when faced with the warning from God's prophet of their ultimate destruction, repented turned to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the greatest revivals in human history occurred and God's hand of judgment was stayed for a season. This is amazing since despite the warning of God's prophets on many different occasions, God's own chosen people refused to repent and suffered His wrath and punishment!
You can go to my Daily Devotional archives where every Daily Devotional since day is searchable by date, topic, or keyword (http://www.liveprayer.com/darchive.cfm) and search using keyword Islam, keyword financial, and read the complete details of the dozens and dozens of complete and detailed warnings I have shared with you over the years. The Daily Devotionals on Islam the past year have been incredibly detailed as I have helped you to understand how our current President and administration have helped to make possible the destruction of this nation by Islam, much like God used the Babylonians as an instrument of His judgment on Israel several times.
I SHARED WITH YOU LAST NOVEMBER THAT 2015 WOULD BE A YEAR OF VICTORY, A YEAR TO SEE A TRUE REVIVAL BREAK OUT THROUGHOUT THE NATION AS WE BEGIN TO TURN BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH. PREPARE YOURSELF MY FRIEND, AS THE UNITED STATES EXPERIENCES A "NINEVEH MOMENT" AS WE SEE A MIGHTY HARVEST OF SOULS COME INTO THE KINGDOM AND GOD'S HAND FINAL WRATH STAYED FOR A SEASON!!!
Liveprayer has led this charge over many years of faithful service every day online and on TV. No matter what happens tomorrow, the tens of millions of lives impacted for Christ, the 100 million plus emails for prayer we have prayed over and responded to as testified by the 9+ million praise reports we have archived, and most important, the 900,000 souls we know of who have come to faith in Jesus, will be my eternal legacy and that of every member of the Liveprayer family who has been part of the incredible miracle of God, especially those who have prayed for His work here and those who have made incredible financial sacrifices that enabled us to be here 24/7/365 these past 16 years!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
I am in a very desperate place today. As we are just 10 days from the end of February, we still require the last $7,000 of our JANUARY operations, all SERIOUSLY past due, and the first $15,000 of our February operations, going on 2 weeks past due, totaling $22,000 that we MUST cover by the end of the week to not see our basic daily internet and TV operations disrupted!
I desperately need just 4 of our friends who have the ability to wire, direct-deposit (Wells Fargo), overnight, or credit card/PayPal and gift of $5,500 or more (just one God is calling to meet this need) to insure these payments are met and we aren't forced to lost our ability to minister to people each day as we have over the past 16 years! (Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you the necessary information you need to get the funds to us ASAP.)
GOD ALWAYS HAS A RAM IN THE BUSH, AND I NEED 1-4 OF OUR FRIENDS TODAY TO ANSWER HIS CALL TO HELP ME! Covering the last $7,000 of January's shortfall, and the first $15,000 of our February internet and TV operations, would leave us requiring the last $30,000 of our monthly internet operations and $20,000 of our monthly TV operations over the final 10 days of this short month. To cover that final $50,000, if 30 of our friends can help me in the next few days with a special one-time gift of $1,000 and everyone else will give as you are able to give, we can get the bulk if not all of the final $50,000 taken care of by the end of the month.
I am asking today that everyone please take a few minutes to pray about this critical situation. Pray about what God is asking YOU to do to help me today. Over these past 16 years, on many critical occasions God has moves on the hearts of several people to make a real sacrifce and by faith give a gift of $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, and in a few cases $50,000 and $100,000.
I UNDERSTAND this will require some people to really step out in faith, but you know the daily track record of our faithfulness over 16 years now, and that I have proven time and time again no matter what the personal consequences I will can't be bought or will never compromise the Truth of God's Word!
Our monthly internet and TV budget breaks down to just $2,200 a day! If just 30 people would make the commitment to send a monthly gift to LP of $2,200, 100% of our basic internet and TV operations would be covered! So please, pray today about stepping up and make this commitment for the balance of this year of VICTORY so Liveprayer can focus 100% on the ministry work God has called us to!

I love you and care about you so much. I hate to spend my time, or yours with our finances. I would much rather be spending that time with the Lord and in ministering to you and your family, but if I don't we simply won't be able to continue to provide all of the life-changing ministry we do for so many worldwide each day.
The only hope for our nation is to have that "Nineveh moment," and I believe in my heart we WILL! I see in the midst of the many dangers and toils we face each day, people crying out for real answers and looking for true hope. Liveprayer has faithfully shared God's answers and the hope of Christ with people in this nation and around the world each day for 16 years. I DO NOT believe our work is finished yet, certainly not over just $71,000.
However, we have only been here this long because of dear friends like you who have prayed for me and God's work here, and have made the sacrifce, sometimes HUGE sacrifce, allowing God to use your life to feed the multitudes who wouldn't have been fed otherwise. Please stand with me today, pray, sacrifice what you can, and together we will keep sharing the hope of Christ with the lost and hurting, while leading our land to repentance and revival instead of judgment!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
