Daily Devotional for Monday July 1, 2019
WHAT WILL DECIDE THE UPCOMING 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!!! ( Part One of Three )
(Psalm 139:13-15, Jeremiah 1:4-5)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to focus on the fact that while as a nation and people we operate in a political infrastructure, the answers for our nation are not political but spiritual! Only through the Gospel transforming lives can this nation once again rise up and be the GOD BLESSED land we once were. Help us Lord to not be distracted by the “noise” of the political world, but stay focused on the one and only answer for our land, turning back to Almighty God and HIS Truth!!! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!
WHAT WILL DECIDE THE UPCOMING 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, HOW IT WILL BE DONE, AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO OUR CULTURE AND FOR CHRISTIANS!!! ( Part One of Three )
"You did form my inward parts, you knit me together in my mother's womb...you knew me right well; my frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret..." Psalm 139:13-15
THIS ONE ISSUE WILL DECIDE WHO THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS!!! For the past 46+ years since Roe v. Wade, Christians and the pro-life movement have been playing defense for the most part. Please, let me say up front so there is NO CONFUSION! Those who have prayed, marched, picketed, given, many sacrificed their literal lives for the pro-life movement HAVE NOT DONE SO IN VAIN! NOTHING WE DO FOR THE LORD’S WORK IS EVER IN VAIN!
MILLIONS OF BABIES WERE BORN AND GIVEN THE GIFT OF LIFE BECAUSE OF THE EFFORTS OF THE BRAVE WARRIORS IN THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT THESE PAST 46+ YEARS!!!
The fact is, never in 46 yrs has the pro-life movement been so energized and on the offensive as they have the past couple of years! That has happened because several pieces have divinely fallen into place. The first was the unlikely election of Donald Trump as President in 2016. It is God who allows men to rise to power and takes men out of power.
For at least 4 yrs, He has allowed this lifetime narcissist, hedonist, and man whose morals and ethics are at best questionable, to become the President of the United States. The fact is for most of his life, President Trump has been a Democrat who was pro-choice.
I have several dear friends of over 20 years who I trust. They have all spent time around President Trump and all have told me that he has made the choice to accept Christ as his Savior by faith. Only God knows our heart in this matter, and I pray that is true as I do for ALL people. I will add that if in fact he has come to faith in Christ, like many, he is still a very baby Christian and needs to grow in His faith as do so many who have made that decision.
I am also told that his pro-life stance is 100% real and authentic. Again, like many who would rather never talk about this issue, they are “pro-choice” simply to get along and without ever giving any real thought to this issue. I have been told VP Pence and others in the evangelical movement have spent time with President Trump educating him on this issue.
As a man with 5 children, numerous grandchildren, it didn’t take much for him to totally understand the horror and barbarism that goes on apx. 4,000 times EVERY 24 HOURS in this nation. I was also told that explaining how “late term” abortions are performed especially moved the President as they do most people with a conscience who have simply put their head in the sand on the abortion issue!!!
As with everything with this unique President, if he truly believes in something he will boldly and publicly speak out. His openly speaking of abortion at the State of the Union, especially the practice of killing a baby out of the womb IF it survives the initial attempt to be killed just prior to birth, was moving and openly challenging the pro-baby killing advocates. He rarely has any public events where he doesn’t include speaking about the sanctity of life. The fact is, despite other Presidents who were pro-life, NONE have been as public, in-your-face, challenging the pro-death industry as President Trump!
The boldness to speak out with clarity on this issue by the President PLUS the appointment of 2 conservative justices to the Supreme Court, has given a green light to those who labor in the pro-life movement as well as to states controlled by Republicans governors and legislatures. This has resulted in many laws passed by numerous states to restrict the number of abortions being performed, as well as legal maneuvers to get a case before the Supreme Court in order to challenge striking down the 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade.
*Don’t forget that even if Roe is struck down, it simply reverts the issue back to each state to decide, and a general estimate is there would be 30 states where people can still kill their baby, and 20 where this murder would be outlawed!
Let me share with you the most important thing that is happening at this moment in regard to the life issue. For the very first time in the 46 yrs of Roe, those who support the murder of innocent babies are being forced to TALK ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND JUSTIFY THEIR BELIEFS.
For the most part, other than a few times a year when something in the life issue bubbles up in the news, the average people outside of the activists on each side have shied away from speaking about it. Listen, it is a horrific subject that the vast majority of people simply don’t want to talk about. People who support killing babies really don’t want to have the conservation, nor do the people who oppose this barbaric practice. That is just a fact.
Because of the boldness, clarity, and constant public comments on this issue by President Trump, it is forcing the Democratic Party and people who support killing babies to defend this indefensible act of murder! For really the first time since Roe 46 years ago, each day those who are in the baby killing industry are having the spotlight shined on the barbarism they advocate and work tirelessly for. It is also causing most of the secular media to be openly sympathetic and supportive of the pro-baby killing movement!
Infanticide is the sacrament of the religion of social justice! Adherents to the religion of social justice like the vast percentage of the secular media, entertainment industry, and big tech organizations, use their platforms to flood the marketplace with information 24/7 in support of killing innocent babies. As we will discuss in Part 3 of this special 3-part special Daily Devotional, their ONLY enemy, their only foe are Biblical Christians.
WE ARE THE ONLY ONES STANDING IN THE WAY OF THIS CULTURE THAT IS IN SPIRITUAL FREEFALL HAVING NO HOPE OF EVER RECOVERING AND ULTIMATELY BEING DESTROYED AS GOD POURS OUT HIS WRATH AND PUNISHMENT UPON OUR NATION!!!
I love and care about you so much. While President Trump is using the bully pulpit of his office to boldly stand for life, it is causing those in the pro-life movement and Biblical Christians who have never taken much of a visible public stand on this issue to go on the offensive! Republican states are restricting the number of babies killed through creative legislation, and at the same time looking to move a legal case to the Supreme Court to force the Court to re-visit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
I can tell you that at this moment, polling which can often be questionable, is showing abortion as one of the top 3 issues in the upcoming Presidential election. I personally believe that as the election moves closer it will continue to be one of the top issues in 2020. I also personally believe that in the end, this will be THE ISSUE to determine whether the nation re-elects President Trump or elects a Democrat who will be the most egregious baby killing President in the history of our nation.
What I see in my heart is a nation that is still clinging to God and His Truth by its’ fingernails...literally! It is a nation that is
only hanging on spiritually by the fumes of 24+ decades where it was predominantly a nation that honored God our Creator and Biblical Truth. That razor thin majority will either stand one more time for God in order to assure at least 4 more years of a pro-life administration, or will lose to the fast growing Godless and pro-death minions of satan.
For those who have been reading the Daily Devotional over any portion of the past 20 years, or for the past 15 years watching the Liveprayer TV program, you know I have clearly stated that this one issue, infanticide, would ultimately bring down the wrath and judgement of God on our land. The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that “..when the temptation comes, He will also provide the way of escape...” Just like in our personal life where God gives us a chance to escape sin, so He is giving this nation ONE LAST opportunity to escape the sin of infanticide!!”
***ABORTION VIDEO AND INFORMATION: On the Liveprayer.com homepage, we have a special 55 second video clip of an actual abortion being performed in the “Abortion” section of our Miracle Center. Despite the several death threats and scathing emails I get every month just from having that video on my website, I want the world to see what really happens to millions of babies here in the United States and around the world every year. If you have not watched it, YOU MUST! This is what happens to over 4,000 innocent babies EVERY DAY in the United States! Since God led me to get this footage and put it on the website 15 years ago, we have had thousands of emails from women who were contemplating having an abortion, watched the video, and God changed their mind. You MUST WATCH the incredible testimony about baby Delilah also on that same link!

In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
