Daily Devotional for Wednesday July 3, 2019
WHAT WILL DECIDE THE UPCOMING 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!!! (Part Three of Three)
***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 Three of Three)
“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62
On Monday in Part One, I shared with you what I feel will be the key issue to determine who will be elected President in 2020. Yesterday in Part Two, I shared with you how the Democratic Party would seek to win the Presidency back in 2020 by aggressively fighting for the faith vote. Today in Part Three, I want to share with you how our culture has cleverly divided the “Christian community” in order to literally silence the speech of Christians who hold the Bible to represent Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters!
26 years ago I began my public ministry. This coming August, Liveprayer will celebrate 20 years online. I’m an evangelist that God has called to labor in the marketplace outside the four walls of the church. Having been on the front lines for 2 decades, I have literally watched a cancer growing within the Christian community, a cancer the world outside of the Christian community and even many within the Christian community don’t know exists.
I spoke about that cancer in the Daily Devotional yesterday. It is what I have written about in numerous Daily Devotionals over the years and that is the “fake church” (https://liveprayer.com/devotional.cfm?id=53985) and people who call themselves Christians, yet live in total rebellions to the Truth of God’s Word!
40 years ago, you could go to about any Christian church regardless of the denomination, in any state, and you would be at home. The hymns were mostly the same. The Bible was used as the foundation of the service. The pastor would preach a theologically sound and Biblically based sermon. In most cases, at the end of the service there would be an invitation to accept Christ.
Also 40 years ago, if someone claimed to be a Christian, it was understood that they had made a personal decision to accept Jesus Christ into their heart and life by faith and were “born again.” It also meant that they accepted the Bible as the inspired, inerrant Word of God, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in all matters.
Over the last 4 decades, you are more likely to go to a random church of any denomination and realize quickly that the Bible is NOT the foundation of the service. You also have no clue what you will hear from the pastor during the course of the service and the sermon. I can virtually assure you that the odds are OVERWHELMING there will be no invitation to come to Jesus by faith.
Sadly, this is the landscape of Christianity in our world today. This is why I have written so much over the years warning people about churches that compromised the Truth of the Bible. It is also why I have had to reinforce that when I am talking about people who are “born again” and hold the Bible to be their ultimate authority in all matters as “Biblical Christians.”
So in concluding this special 3-Part Daily Devotional today, I not only want to make these incredibly critical distinctions, I also have to talk to you about the fact that the real targets of satan and a world that has rejected God and His Son Jesus are those churches that ARE based on the Truth of God’s Word and people who HAVE accepted Christ by faith and follow the teachings of the Bible.
In recent months I have spoken often about the “Religion of Social Justice.” I also did a Daily Devotional a few months ago on that specific issue (https://liveprayer.com/devotional.cfm?id=53986). The only enemy or foe of the Religion of Social Justice is Biblical Christians. Biblical Christians are the only group who stand in the way of the Religion of Social Justice from having total control of our culture.
Two adherents of the Religion of Social Justice are the fake church and people who identify themselves as Christians yet live in rebellion to God’s Word. In their battle to defeat Biblical Christians, their key to victory is to literally silence our voice from the marketplace. The various platforms where most people get the vast percentage of their information each day are radio, TV, movies, music, and the internet. These are the main avenues used to reach the masses with information 24/7.
So, for the Religion of Social Justice, silencing those true followers of Christ who are attempting to reach the lost masses outside of the four walls of the church is critical. For the most part, Biblical Truth has been eliminated from virtually all of the mainstream media platforms. The world’s greatest communication tools ever developed is the internet. It is responsible for being the source a large and growing percentage of people turn to each day to be informed.
With big tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube being a large and growing group within the Religion of Social Justice, we have seen the beginnings of their efforts to silence Biblical Truth. Ever since the Trump campaign successfully used big tech to help Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States, big tech has been determined to do everything they can to minimize the use of the major internet platforms to help re-elect President Trump in 2020.
Biblical Christians, who big tech also vehemently disagree with, are getting caught up in the initial efforts by big tech to eliminate as much conservative political speech as they can. Of course many faith issues such as sexual perversion, marriage, and life are a few of many issues that cross over from the faith world into the political world.
After a couple of years playing different games to cut down on the amount of conservative speech on various internet platforms, they have pretty much admitted they disagree with certain political and religious views and are targeting to censor as much of that content as possible. They are also using the excuse of eliminating hate speech and foreign interference to censor content they disagree with.
I love you and care about you so much. As someone who has been in the battles literally 24/7 against satan for souls these past 20 years, I have watched the dramatic growth of fake churches and people who call themselves Christians but refuse to live their lives in accordance with God’s Word.
Liveprayer has been online from the very beginning of the internet era, has been airing the Liveprayer TV program on non-Christians stations and networks for 15 years, and has been on hundreds of secular TV, radio programs along with major newspapers over the years commenting on the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview.
I have watched the doors closing in the secular media, especially over the past 10 years, to be on major secular media outlets sharing the Truth of the Bible and the love and hope of Jesus Christ. I am now seeing the strategic plans in place to make it more difficult on the major internet platforms.
The good news is that God has always guided us each day at Liveprayer and kept opening doors that many thought were bolted shut. We will continue to find ways to use the secular media outlets to share with the lost and hurting masses God’s Truth and love. I saw this day coming on the internet very early in the life of Liveprayer, and we have insured we will always have our voice online.
Despite satan’s plans to raise up a fake church and fake Christians, despite his efforts to shut down the use of different information platforms used to get information to the lost and hurting masses in our world today, Liveprayer will keep our hands on the plough, never look back, and keep pressing on towards the prize!
God spared the people of Nineveh when they turned back to Him and His Truth!!! My Bible says that God is no respecter of person, what He did for others He will do for us!!! As we faithfully minister to the masses worldwide each day, we are also working hard to usher in a move of God’s Spirit across our land that will bring in a mighty harvest of souls and instead of God’s wrath for our gross sins and rebellion, His blessings!!! AMEN!!!
