The Headlines are Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God
(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for another day. Please let me never take even one day for granted, since each day is a gift from YOU! Help me to be a witness for you this day in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Let the Jesus in me shine bright during this day so that everyone I come in contact with knows that there is something different in my life. Help me to be a blessing to others and a bold witness for you. In the name of Jesus I pray...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!!!
-The far left self-appointed watchdog of hate organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has listed me and the ministry on their "hate map" with groups who advocate and are involved in violence for simply preaching the Truth of the Bible about the sin of homosexuality, gay marriage, and telling the truth about the false religion of Islam. Why isn't a true hate group who advocates the killing of the police, BlackLivesMatter, on their hate map?
-The killer of the 2 TV station employees in Roanoke, VA last week got his gun legally. Those who advocate for restricting the 2nd Amendment, had to admit no new laws would have prohibited the killer from buying his gun. That is not true. It has come to light the killer had a history of mental illness, worked for years as a male prostitute, and had there been a national mental health registry as I have called for over the last decade, he would not have been able to legally buy his gun.
-Jorge Ramos, the news anchor on the Univision and Fusion Spanish language stations, is NOT a journalist but an advocate for illegal immigration. Ramos would like to see open borders allowing anyone to enter the country without any sort of documentation. His advocacy for criminals, those who break the laws of our nation by entering illegally, means that the blood of everyone who has been killed by an illegal alien, the horror of everyone who has been raped by an illegal alien, the loss of property by everyone who has been robbed by an illegal alien, and the sale of illegal drugs throughout this nation by illegal aliens, means Ramos bears responsibility for these crimes in his advocacy for those who broke the law to enter this nation!
-US cities are in chaos. Homelessness is rampant with people literally defecating and urinating in the streets, crime is up exponentially, as is the murder rate. Our cities are being turned into battle fields and not safe for the public!
-In the wake of the Ashley Madison hack and the public broadcasting of the personal information of their 40 million subscribers, have been dozens of suicides linked to that release of information as well as over 400 church leaders who have resigned when it was made known they are members of this adultery website.
-Dr. Dobson recently stated that the culture war is at stake. He is 100% WRONG! The culture war has been lost due to "Christian leaders" like him who for decades have called for political answers when our problems have nothing to do with politics but are spiritual. He and people like Reed, Perkins, and others have generated tens of millions annually for their organizations in leading people astray that there are political answers to the problems we face as a people, when the ONLY answer for those problems is a true spiritual revival.
-Hillary Clinton states that if you are pro life you are like a terrorist. I have a message for Mrs. Clinton. The terrorists are the "doctors" who kill 4,000 innocent babies every day in the United States and than cut them up and sell their parts, along with her, President Obama, and anyone else who supports infanticide! That is TRUE TERRORISM!
-We pray for the family of the sheriff in Houston who was executed last weekend. His blood and the blood of all law enforcement officers who are being hunted and killed like animals is on the hands of President Obama, the DOJ, media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, Huffington Post, and others who have ginned up the racial animus in this nation, along with anarchist groups like the Soros funded BlackLivesMatter.
-Pray for Kim Davis, the county clerk in Kentucky who is standing for her faith by not issuing licenses for same-sex marriages. Even though the courts have ruled against her, pray for her as she continues to boldly stand for God's Truth.
-Pope Francis stated that the Roman Catholic Church will now forgive women who had an abortion. That is very kind of the Pope, but I hate to break it to him, that forgiveness has always been available since it comes from Jesus alone and not man! Any woman or man (it takes 2 to create a child) who has the sin of abortion in their life, can simply ask the Lord to forgive them and know that they will be forgiven exactly as promised in God's Word.
-As I sadly stated on my TV program several weeks ago, the Republican House and Senate have no desire or plan to even try and defund Planned Parenthood. Yesterday, Senate leader McConnell said it "wasn't the right time." When is the right time Senator? After another 5 million, 10 million, 50 million innocent babies are slaughtered with the help of taxpayer dollars while you and the other politicians sit back and do nothing?
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,
