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!
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!!!
-Greece will default on its' debt if no agreement is reached by Sunday. If no deal is reached, it could be the start of the break-up of the EU. Other than the Greek people and economy, the problem will be exposing the "smoke and mirrors" of the economies of ALL major nations, including the United States. Wednesday afternoon the US stock market is down over 200 points and much trading halted due to "technical issues." I have warned you for years that ALL computer infrastructures are open for hacking, despite denials by market officials they had been hacked. THE CURRENT EVENTS AROUND THE WORLD ONLY DEMONSTRATE HOW REAL A ONE WORLD ECONOMY AND ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT COULD BECOME!
-The tale of two lives going in different directions. It is now clear that Bill Cosby, despite his stature in the entertainment world for over 5 decades, is an evil and greatly disturbed human being. On the flip side is Seattle Seahawk QB Russell Wilson who along with his girlfriend, pop singer Ciara, have dedicated their relationship to God and will remain abstinent until they get married. The sports media who celebrate the openly gay Michael Sam, the mentally unstable transgendered Bruce Jenner, are confused why a high profile major sports star who could bed multiple women daily, would make such a choice.
-Pope Francis is in South America preaching a social gospel to the poor masses, a perverted gospel promoted by Socialist/Marxist/Communist nations from which Pope Francis came from, stating the wealthy should give their wealth to the poor so everyone is equal. Why can't the Pope just once, open his Bible to John 3:16 and preach the TRUE Gospel and invite people to faith in Jesus?
-Whatever you think of Donald Trump, you have to give him credit for taking the abuse, personally and in his various businesses, for telling the truth about the broken immigration system. Sadly, despite his personal wealth and power that affords him to take such a stand, if he is still standing in the fall, you will see him destroyed...not by Democrats but by Republicans. Trump doesn't play by the rules, isn't part of the "team," and thus the powers who control the Republican party will decimate him and force him out with some sort of excuse about the toll his candidacy is taking on his family. THIS IS WHY ANYONE WHO IS PUTTING THEIR FAITH IN THE PERVERSE AND CORRUPT POLITICAL SYSTEM IS A FOOL, ESPECIALLY SINCE OUR PROBLEMS IN THIS NATION ARE NOT POLITICAL BUT SPIRITUAL!
-There is a HUGE heroin epidemic in this nation. Heroin, primarily being smuggled in from Mexico, is responsible for not just the destruction of the lives of those who are addicted to the drug, but the key to the incredible gang violence and death in cities like Chicago.
-As I correctly stated, President Obama couldn't be bothered to light up the White House in red, white, and blue on the 4th of July, despite sticking his finger in the eye of God by lighting the White House in the rainbow colors to celebrate this nation perverting God's Holy Institution of Marriage. Also, in his 4th of July address to the nation, President Obama failed to end with the perfunctory "God bless America." All I can say is...AMEN! To ask or expect God to bless this nation as we rebel against the Almighty daily is a fantasy!
-The mothers who exploited their young boys to march in the NYC gay pride parade and to cry on the steps of their NYC apartment building lamenting he is worried about his future because he is "gay," should have those children removed from their home! It is bad enough you have grown adults making the choice to engage in perverted, unnatural, unhealthy sex with people of the same sex, but to exploit children to promote this perversion is disgusting!
-One in five in the United States is on some form of welfare. Home ownership is at a 20 year low.
-347,000 illegals in this nation are convicted criminals. The fact is, EVERY ONE who came into this country without proper documentation is a criminal!
-As President Obama prepares to visit his "fatherland" of Kenya this summer, religious leaders there have sent him a letter warning him to NOT bring his "gay agenda" to their nation that has embraced Christ and the Bible. They told him homosexuality is a sin and gay marriage is a perversion of God's plan for marriage. It is sad that the religious leaders of a foreign nation take a stand for Christ while the religious leaders of this nation sit in silence for fear they will be attacked by the government!
-90 year-old former President Jimmy Carter who claims to be a born-again Believer, stated Jesus would be OK with gay marriage. President Carter was not only a failure as the leader of our nation for four years, a failure only surpassed by the current President, but is a failure as a Christian to spew such lies!
-Lastly, but not least. I am asked often why the Liveprayer TV program has been on such a late time slot during the 12 years we have been on TV. Currently we are on "live" Mon-Fri from Midnight to 2am Eastern time. Many reasons, but here is one of the mains one. The top 3 Google searches after Midnight are, porn, lonely, and suicide. Need I say more?
All of this only exacerbates the fact I have shared with you that God's hand of protection is no longer on this nation. We are currently on our own. The only question is whether God's final wrath and judgment will be unleashed ending this nation as we know it, or will we turn back to our Creator and His Truth before it is too late?
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,
