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!!!
-Please don't get excited because of the kabuki theater taking place in the House and Senate regarding the defundning of Planned Parenthood. Neither Speaker Boehner or Senate Majority Leader McConnell will go to the wall and take whatever legislative actions needed to make it happen. The bill will never get out of the Senate because they won't play the same dirty parliamentary tricks the Democrats often use to pass legislation they want like the disastrous Obamacare? This is just another example of why I warn people often to not put their hope in politicians, especially since our real problems are not political but spiritual.
-VP Joe Biden was asked the other day about the abortion issue and he quickly stated that it was an issue "above his paygrade." How gutless, since his entire political career he has voted 100% for the slaughter of innocent babies. When asked about late-term abortions, Hillary Clinton said that those only happened in medical emergencies. How stupid does she think people are? Less than a fraction of 1% of 1% of abortions have anyhting to do with medical emergencies. She simply doesn't want to admit that she is a staunch supporter of abortions on demand NO MATTER WHAT STAGE OF THE PREGNANCY!
-Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Muslim freshman at a high school in Irving, Tex who was arrested temporarily for brining a "homemade clock" to school, actually built nothing! As I told my TV audience the night this story broke, I stated that I wanted to wait a few days and see what all the facts are, but something didn't seem right. The day of the event, even before any facts came to light, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, officials at MIT, and even the President, all publicly praised the boy. He received invitations to visit Facebook, MIT who wanted him to be a student there when he was finished with high school, and the White House along with his "clock." If you see a picture of his "clock," it looks like a bomb. As facts have now come out, all this kid did was take the insides of a clock from Radio Shack, put it in a briefcase, and took it school He was told by various teachers to put it in his locker but he disobeyed, until one teacher took him to the principal's office where they called the police out of concern it really was a bomb. In addition, his father turns out to be a Muslim activist with ties to CAIR. This was all a huge scam apparently to scare people and in some way use the incident as it was initially reported to generate sympathy for Muslims and support this false narrative of Islamaphobia the media loves to report on.
-The "baby doe" case in Mass. turns out to be just another sick example of people living their lives in rebellion to God and His Word. As it turns out, the mother of the baby was at "occupy wallstreet" in Boston where she hooked up in a tent with a man she didn't know and 9 months later she had a baby. The baby's father didn't even know he had a child. The mother had a string of boyfriends over the years and one thought he saw demons in everything, including her baby. So one night he killed the baby, tossed the body into the Boston Harbor. By the grace of God and great police work, the baby was finally identified and the mother and the boyfriend who killed the child are in jail. Simply another sad example of lives lived in rebellion to God and how destruction is always the end result.
-Pray for rapper "Waka Flocka Flame," who publicly stated about people who are transgendered, "You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did." Being in the entertainment industry, you can imagine the backlash, but he has remained firm that people who do that to themselves are a "rebuke to God." Amen. A rapper with more guts and telling more truth than most pastors!
-Men of Islam and young boy sex slaves. Over the 1400 year history of Islam, men have always had multiple wives, wives as young as 7, 8, 9. They have also had young boys as servants, who doubled as sex slaves. I have talked about this being part of the Islamic culture, and recently one of our military personnel in Afghanistan is facing court martial for coming to the aid of a 12-yo boy being raped all night by an Muslim Afghan officer who was stationed at one of our bases there. It amazes me how little people know about the culture of Islam. On one hand they denounce homosexuality and actually kill those who engage in such acts. Yet Muslim men of means or in high military positions have always had young boys as servants who doubled as sex slaves. THIS IS ISLAM AND HAS BEEN PART OF THEIR RECORDED HISTORY SINCE THEY BEGAN 1400 YEARS AGO!!! *BTW, you will soon see the courts being challenged to allow Muslim men to marry young girls under 15 as part of their "religious practices!"
-Doritos announced that it will come in rainbow colors to show support for the LGBT community. Sales will go to It Gets Better, a non-profit group started by the infamous anti-Christian bully and bigot Dan Savage! Just want you to know where your money goes the next time you buy Doritos or any Frito-Lay products!
-The White House has appointed the first openly gay leader of the US Army. This is just the latest shot taken by this President at the military, and great generals from President George Washington though today have been spit on by this disgusting appointment. Sadly, if he was an evangelical Christian, he would have never been appointed to this position.
-Lastly, Dr. Ben Carson has been under fire by the media and Muslim advocacy groups like CAIR for daring to state his belief that a Muslim should not be President. The fact is, I doubt there will ever be a Muslim who if elected President, could do as much to further the false religion of Islam and advocate for Muslims in this nation and around the world than has President Barack Hussein Obama! As a side note, being born of a Muslim father he was a Muslim. He clams to be a Christians because he went to a Christian church, but we know that doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing on a runway makes you an airplane. I have never found anything written or on video where he denounced any affiliation with Islam!
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,
