Daily Devotional for Friday July 24, 2015
God Still has a Plan for this Nation
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT AND PRAY BEFORE YOU READ THIS MESSAGE. I AM ASKING YOU TO SHARE THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE WITH EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY YOUR PASTOR AND THOSE IN YOUR CHURCH AND FRIENDS WHO KNOW THE LORD. I AM ASKING THE LORD FOR HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO TAKE THEIR STAND FOR THE LORD IN THESE LAST DAYS AND WORK WITH ME TO HELP LEAD THIS NATION BACK TO THE ALMIGHTY AND HIS TRUTH WHILE SAVING SOULS.
AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD, IT WAS A HANDFUL OF MEN WHO WERE SOLD OUT, SACRIFICED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THEIR VERY LIFE, THAT GOD USED TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL WORLDWIDE AND IMPACT LITERALLY BILLIONS OVER THE PAST 2,000 YEARS.
IT IS CLEAR FROM WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR NATION THAT GOD IS PREPARED TO REMOVE HIS HAND OF PROTECTION AND BLESSING FROM THIS LAND AT ANY MOMENT. WE HAVE NO MORE TIME AND MUST ACT NOW. I AM ASKING THE LORD TO RAISE UP HIS PEOPLE IN THESE FINAL DAYS WHO ARE PREPARED TO SACRIFCE ALL THEY HAVE FOR THE GOSPEL, AND TO STAND WITH ME AS WE LEAD THIS NATION OUT OF THE SPIRITUAL ABYSS AND BACK TO HIS BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS!!!
"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!" 1 Corinthians 15:57
God still has a plan for this nation, and in operating by faith and trusting the Lord over many years, Liveprayer has been playing a role in that plan! Let me remind you of what God has had me show you since late November 2007 up until today, and how He has left the door open for the nation to turn back to Him and His Truth and be spared His ultimate wrath and judgment!!!
In November of 2007 I shared in the Daily Devotional that we would begin to see the clear and visible judgment of God falling on this nation for our sins and rebellion to our Creator. Only weeks later the housing bubble burst draining trillions from the economy and affecting tens of millions of people. The ripple effects of that housing crash are still being felt over 7 years later and has crippled millions who have been unemployed or underemployed, many losing all of their wealth that was tied up in their home equity, or others who have faced severe economic challenges.
Heading into the 2008 election for President, I warned you of the consequences this nation would face if they elected Barack Hussein Obama who was not just utterly incompetent and unqualified for the job of President, but worse, a true enemy of God. How else can a man who claims to be a Christian vote 100% of the time to support the legalized slaughter of innocent babies, fully support the radical homosexual agenda, embrace the false religion of Islam to the detriment of Israel, and oppose God and His Word on every spiritual issue of our day?
Since 2008, the Lord gave me the vision to establish the Jonah Project, the Remnant, and the Liveprayer Church. All of these ministry tools have been used to reach the lost and hurting for Christ and bring Biblical Truth into the marketplace, while helping to advance our ultimate objective in leading this nation back to our Creator and Biblical Truth! Jonah Project: http://www.liveprayer.com/jonah/ The Remnant: http://www.liveprayer.com/remnant.cfm The Liveprayer Church: http://liveprayerchurch.com/
Of course, our two main proven and effective minsitry tools to lead this nation back to God and His Truth while ministering to the daily needs of people worldwide and guiding the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, are the Liveprayer.com website and Daily Devotional daily for the past 16 years and the Liveprayer TV program over the past 12 years. Tens of millions of lives have been impacted worldwide, 100+ million emails for prayer have been received and responded to with over 9 million praise reports archived, and over 900,000 souls we know of who have accepted the Lord by faith.
Liveprayer.com and the Liveprayer TV program gives us a daily presence around the nation and world large enough and growing the media and the world can't just ignore. IT IS A PRESENCE THAT IS EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OPEN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE LOST WE REACH THAT THERE IS TRUE HOPE AND REAL ANSWERS IN GOD'S WORD AND IN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST!!!
One of the greatest walks of faith Liveprayer has taken was going into the 2012 Presidential election. I told you long in advance that election would be satan flipping a two-headed coin with his head on both sides! I warned Christians that as evil as President Obama clearly was, DO NOT buy into the lie of the "lesser of two evils" many Christian leaders more worried about politics than souls would try to sell people. Equally as evil as President Obama was a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult leading souls to hell with a false gospel named Willard Mitt Romney!
The Lord led me to establish the "Vote for Jesus" campaign ( http://vfj.liveprayer.com/ ), encouraging people to be good citizens and vote. However, for President instead of voting for evil, write in the name Jesus as a stand for their faith. 2,186,986 people committed to make that stand, and after the election many media outlets including Romney's cult brother Glenn Beck on his national radio program, publicly blamed me for President Obama being re-elected. Also, as I knew would happen, Liveprayer had well over $100,000 of annual donations lost as many friends of Liveprayer put politics over souls and stopped supporting God's work here.
The fact is, it is God, not Bill Keller who allows men to rise to power and takes men out of power. I have NEVER ONCE in 23 years of serving the Lord ever done anything for money. I am not stupid. I fully understand that by not dealing with certain issues, just making people "feel good," I would never have to worry about raising the little we need each month to operate, and could actually generate millions of dollars of surplus annually. AGAIN, IN 23 YEARS OF MINISTRY I HAVE NEVER REFUSED TO OBEY GOD BECAUSE DOING SO WOULD COST THE MINISTRY DONATIONS!!!
Almost 3 years after that election, God has once again vindicated my faith!!! First, few people will ever be able to comprehend the spiritual destruction having a 5th generation high priest of a satan worshipping cult as President, and the millions, tens of millions of souls worldwide, who would have ended up in hell as this aggressive satanic cult gained worldwide credibility. After 23 years on the front lines, trust me when I tell you the spiritual consequences to this nation would have been devastating and we would have NEVER recovered!
As for the Lord allowing the evil President Obama 4 more years of power. Look at how God has projected the nation! Since 2010 he has not been able to get any of his outlandish legislation passed into law as the Lord allowed the Republicans to take the House, and in 2014, added to that a Republican Senate. His ability to legally pass any meaningful legislation to advance his radical political agenda have been neutered, leaving him only able to push his ideology through Executive Orders. To date, ALL of his Executive Orders that have been in front of courts, including the Supreme Court numerous time, have been struck down!
MY FRIEND, THROUGH DIVINE INSPIRATION, OUR NATION WAS ESTABLISHED TO WITHSTAND THE DAMAGE OF A ROGUE PRESIDENT LIKE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA AND STILL REMAIN STANDING. WHAT OUR NATION CANNOT WITHSTAND IS TURNING AWAY FROM GOD AND HIS TRUTH!!!
Here is the bottom line to the Obama presidency. His destructive government take-over of the health care industry through Obamacare may totally fall apart when the Supreme Court rules on a major part of the act in a few weeks. If they do or don't, a new President in 2016 will have the ability to rework much of that legislation in order to revive and repair the healthcare needs of this nation. His immigration orders are DEAD and can't go forward. The economy is still a mess as is our non-existent foreign policy, but again, a new President will have the ability to put forth new polices for both the economy and our involvement around the world.
As for the social issues facing our nation. The fact is gay marriage was going to happen with or without President Obama. Abortion has been the law of the land since 1973, and even a pro-life President like George W. Bush did NOTHING to alleviate that scourge on our nation. The strained race relations exacerbated by this President is another issue the next President will have the opportunity to work on fixing. All in all, other than being the first black President of the nation, history will not be kind to President Obama since in the end he will have accomplished NOTHING and his 8 yrs as President will end up being a total zero in the history books.
For the record, the social issues of our day like gay marriage, abortion, even race relations, are not issues for the President, though it is nice to have that support, but are issues for the church. It is the CHURCH who has failed this nation on these issues, and only the church can be the answer to seeing a change in those issues!
I say all of that to say this. God has given this nation an open door to repent and turn back to Him and His Truth! In His grace and mercy, He has given us the opportunity to be like the children of Nineveh and not the children of Israel!!! I believe a byproduct of the upheaval this nation has experienced over these past 7 years, is that we are ripe and ready for a true national revival! In turning away from God, from Biblical Truth as a nation, the people are realizing that there has to be a better way. Don't forget, the better percentage of the past two generations have never even been to church. There is a mighty harvest of souls that is ripe and waiting!!!
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. In addition to the soul of this nation, the eternal souls of men are at stake. I believe in my heart we can see one more great revival in this land before we face final God's judgment, and millions, tens of millions of souls can be saved. In the end, that has always been what Liveprayer is about..SOULS!
The Spirit has shown me that our window of opportunity God has blessed us with is very short and closing rapidly. It is only a matter of time before God unleashes His wrath and judgment on this once Godly nation for turning our backs on Him and worshipping every fasle god and idol man has created in his rebellious mind, for slaughtering 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, for our gross sexual perversions, and embracing every sin imaginable. However, there is coming a season of repentance and a mighty harvest of souls that will be won to faith in Christ as we turn back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!
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 ALMIGHTY!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
