Daily Devotional for Tuesday March 24, 2015
A Real Word for the Nation
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I ask you today to open my heart and my Spirit to receive what you have for me today. Let me hear Your voice clearly and obediently follow You. Use me oh Lord, for your glory and to advance Your Kingdom! In the name of Jesus...AMEN!!!
A REAL WORD FOR THE NATION! Last month I shared with you a real word from the Lord about this nation and our future. God, through me, has declared this year, 2015, a year of VICTORY! Victory for the Believer can only come in one way...REVIVAL!!! Victory is NOT going to come through a politician. As passionate and articulate as the words of Ted Cruz were yesterday as he announced his run for President at my alma mater Liberty University, DO NOT BE FOOLED!
Giving Senator Cruz every benefit of the doubt that everything he said he believed and wanted to accomplish, the FACT is, he is not able to! I remember in 2000 and again in 2004 the promises President George W. Bush made to the Christian community on abortion and gay marriage. Rather than calling him a liar for not doing what he promised on those two issues, let me simply say he was not able to do what he promised to do. As much as our current President may wish it so and tries to make it so, the President of the United States is NOT a dictator!
So no matter what a candidate like Cruz or anyone else may promise, they simply don't have the ability to fulfill that promise! That is why today I chose to re-air this powerful word from God from just a month ago so you don't get distracted, don't get led down a "primrose path" to nowhere, but stay focused on REALITY! Reality is that the problems of this nation are not political, they are spiritual. The answers needed to save the soul of this nation will never come from ANY politician, but a man or woman of God who will lead this nation into revival and ways of righteousness!!!
While the announcement of Cruz at Liberty gave people, especially Christians, hope, IT IS A FALSE HOPE! Please hear me! The false hope is that while this carefully choreographed message to a hand-picked audience was so wonderful, it was NOT reality! Reality exists outside the walls of Liberty University, just like reality exists outside the four walls of the church. Listening to the commentary AFTER the Cruz announcement, it quickly reminded me that there is a world that has rejected the Gospel and Biblical Truth, and more important, those who have embraced the hope and promise of Christ!
This is the exact reason why a politician, in an inherently corrupt institution like politics, WILL NOT AND CAN NOT CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION! The only true hope and answer to save the soul of this nation lies in a move of God's Holy Spirit, a nation who like the people of Nineveh fall on their knees and repent of their sins and turn to God our Creator and His Truth! That is the reason a politician can't solve or even put a dent into the true problems of this nation, only a man or woman of God led by His Spirit calling our land to turn back to God and Biblical Truth!!!
Let me make this clear for you today. For the past 10 years, FOX News has been the dominant cable new network, and during that time a true tool of satan names Barack Hussein Obama was not just elected once...but TWICE! The second time, just 2 1/2 years ago, when FOX News dominated the cable news landscape and spent every day for four years doing their best to insure Obama would not be re-elected.
The same goes for Rush and the talk radio world. As profitable as that world is for the mains "stars," it has proved to be an utter FAILURE in promoting their political agenda since they also spent every day for four years working to insure President Obama would not be re-elected. Their "success" in ratings is attributed to their ability to tap into a niche market of people with a similar political ideology that makes the hosts multi-millions annually, but their ability to affect the political course of this nation is a myth.
EVEN IF THEY COULD CHANGE THE COURSE OF THE POLITICAL TRAJECTORY IN THIS NATION, IT STILL WOULDN'T AFFECT THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION!!!
Even more sad, are those who purport to be "Christian leaders," who like the political entertainers of our day are nothing but "Christian entertainers!" Like the OT priests, the "god" of our "Christian leaders" is money. Why else would a Christian university like Liberty allow a satan worshipping Mormon cult member like Beck, or worse, a 5th generation high priest of the satanic Mormon cult Mitt Romney, be invited to spew their heresy?
Following the playbook of Myung Sung Moon who ( he claimed to be the second coming of Jesus) in the 80s bought off the top evangelical leaders of that day through "front organizations" (http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1818.cfm), people like LaHaye, Baur, Graham, Crouch, Robison, Reed, Robertson, Schuller, Falwell, Kennedy to name a few, Beck has bought off some of the EXACT SAME PEOPLE to build his empire on the lies that he is a "Christian" when a first day Bible college student knows Mormon theology is no more Christian than Islamic theology!
FOX News, Rush, Beck, and the conservative talk radio world, along with the top Christian leaders of our day, have proven an incredible ability to raise hundreds of millions of dollars from their target audience while being total failures at what they purport to be about! A "pretender" like President Obama probably never gets elected once let alone twice if the conservative media had ANY true influence, nor would this nation be in the spiritual freefall it finds itself if the Christian leaders were using the incredible wealth they generate annually on building God's Kingdom and not their own!!!
Having laid this foundation, please take a moment and read, meditate, on the word from God Himself. Please share this message with everyone in your email contact lies, and on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. It is the ONLY answer and ONLY hope for this nation that is currently under the judgment of God and will face His ultimate wrath unless we fall on our knees, repent, and turn back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!
Then I said, "Listen, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice, you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones; who eat my people's flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot? " Then they will cry out to the Lord, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done.
This is what the Lord says: "As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim 'peace' if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them. Therefore night will come over you, without visions,and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them. The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God."
But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin. Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right; who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the Lord's support and say, "Is not the Lord among us? No disaster will come upon us." Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets. Micah 3:1-12
If you want to sum up all of the warnings I have shared with you over the past 16 yrs now, here it is. Focus on these words from the prophet Micah, "Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money."
The politicians who lead this nation are ALL bought and paid for. You can't raise hundreds of millions of dollars regardless of your party unless you have sold your soul. That is why NO politician will ever have the ability to deal with our real problems which are spiritual and not political.
Just like in the OT, today's "priests," the high profile men and women of God, do NOTHING for free. You pay to go to their events, buy their books and tapes, get trinkets in return for your love gifts, so they can live like the rulers of small nations in their mansions, luxury cars, and private jets.
Sadly, most prophets today turn the Word of God into a Christian psychic friends network. They are little different than the businesses with the neon "palm reader" or "fortune teller" signs. They tell you want you want to hear in exchange for money.
I want you to go back and read these words from Micah again. Slowly. Take in each word. Few people fully comprehend the spiritual abyss this nation is in. In just my short 57 years on earth, I have literally seen this nation go from embracing God and His Truth, to mocking God and His Truth. GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED AND JUST AS THESE WORDS WERE TRUE FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THEY ARE TRUE FOR US!
In years past when this nation was in times of trouble, its' leaders and people called on the name of God. Now, the Almighty is silent as they call on Him, living in open rebellion to Him and His Truth. However, once again God our Creator will hear the cry of His people and shower them with His grace and mercy!
The prophet Jeremiah said in 15:16, "When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty."
GOD HAS TOLD ME, "THE GOOD NEWS I HAVE FOR YOU THIS DAY IS THAT MY PEOPLE IN THIS LAND I HAVE SO RICHLY BLESSED WILL RISE UP ONE LAST TIME. WHILE MY WRATH AND JUDGMENT IS BEING POURED OUT ON THIS WICKED NATION, MORE AND MORE EACH DAY, IT WILL BE UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THAT WRATH AND JUDGMENT THE PEOPLE WILL RESPOND LIKE THE PEOPLE OF NINEVEH. THEY WILL GET ON THEIR KNEES, PUT ON SACKCLOTH AND ASHES, REPENT OF THEIR SINS, AND TURN BACK TO THEIR CREATOR AND MY TRUTH! THERE WILL BE A SEASON WHEN MY WRATH AND JUDGMENT WILL CEASE AND A GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS WILL BE WON TO MY KINGDOM!" THUS SAYETH THE LORD GOD.
I love you and care about you so much. Our time is very short. Our only hope as a nation is to turn back to God and His Truth. We have been under God's judgment for several years now, and as each day passes that we don't repent, it will only get more severe. The eternal souls of men are at stake. This nation, like Nineveh, will ultimately be destroyed for our sins and wickedness. However, there is coming a season of repentance and a mighty harvest of souls that will be won to faith in Christ.
MY FRIEND, GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSON, AND WHAT HAPPENED IN NINEVEH (modern day Mosul in Iraq) 2800 YEARS AGO...WILL HAPPEN IN THE UNITED STATES!!!
Over these last 7 years as God burdened me over the soul of this nation, He has spoken His word to me that I have faithfully shared with you. Below are 3 critical Daily Devotionals from 2008, 2014, and early this year. There is also a powerful Daily Devotional from 2012 on having a "Nineveh moment." In addition, I have provided the links to the Jonah Project and Jonah web page established in 2008, and the Remnant and the Remnant web page established in 2011, both designed to share the only hope and only answer for this nation. Please take the time in the coming days to read the content on these links that God poured out through me to open the hearts and minds of people to turn back to the Almighty and His Truth or suffer his ultimate wrath and judgment!
