A nation spiraling out of control, ripe for a revival !!!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help us and guide us in this changing world we live in to be effective servants for YOU. I am so grateful that You never change! Throughout human history we have embraced the technology of the day in order to share the Truth of Your Word and the hope and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Grant us Your wisdom oh Lord, and help us to use all of the tools and technology we possess to get Your Truth to the masses, minister to hurting people, and lead lost souls to faith in our Savior Jesus Christ!!!
A nation spiraling out of control, ripe for a revival! In just the past week, all you had to do is read the headlines and someone with zero spiritual discernment could see that this nation is in spiritual freefall. Today, I want to walk you through some of the recent headlines, the top news stories of the last week, as an indicator of just where we are spiritually as a nation. These sad stories should not dismay men and women of God, but ENCOURAGE us that the climate is ripe for a revival in this land.
The people are hungry, looking for hope and looking for answers. We have the ONLY answer and ONLY hope for this nation and each person...JESUS!!!
Probably the most troubling of the recent stories has been the rash of mass shootings in the news virtually daily. From coast to coast, New York to California, in a premeditated fashion, people have gone out with the sole purpose of killing large numbers of innocent people. We have always been horrified that there are evil people who sit down, plan, then carry out the mass murder of innocent people for no apparent reason other than the evil that drives them!
Social scientists have proffered numerous theories why there is such a dramatic increase in these episodes of mass killings. The economic crisis, a growing number of mentally unstable people in society, more and more people living isolated lives. I contend that we will see a continued increase of these sad stories of mass murder, and a large driver is the spiritual depravity that exists in our culture.
We live in a culture of death! Human life has little to no value! Marriage and the family have broken down, the foundation of our society. Sadly, the vast majority of the last two generations have never even been to church, have no foundation of faith in their lives, and literally live like animals.
MY FRIEND, THE UNITED STATES IS A POST-GOD, POST-CHRISTIAN NATION!!!
I have shared over the years how we are getting closer to a one-world economic system that will lead to a one-world government, which will usher in a one-world religion. I have shared in the past how atheist billionaire George Soros was a type of what the anti-Christ would be like when that person rises to power. There are talks amongst many of the top economic powers in the world who are looking seriously at a push towards a one-world currency which of course would create a one-world economy.
A big proponent of this is none other than George Soros and those of his ilk on the global stage! He and those like him are clearly an instruments satan is using in these last day as they commit their vast resources and power to try and destroy the autonomy of this nation and other free nations to work on bringing them into a one-world system.
The greatest damage during the 8 years of President Obama was the focused drive to break the nationalistic fervor that has dominated our nation in its’ 243 and lead it onto the path of globalism. God allowed President Trump to rise up at this moment in human history, as He has other leaders around the world, to temporarily halt this march to globalism. However, once the Trump Presidency is over, once other leaders in nations around the world who have reject the globalist ideology for nationalism are out of power, globalism will dominate the nations of the world and become entrenched in the mindset of their citizens!
I contend that the rejection of God and the void of Biblical Truth in this nation has led us on this path we are on towards globalism/socialism and being part of a one-world system. It is no coincidence that the decline of Christianity in the past 40 years and the void of Biblical Truth as a guiding presence in our culture, has opened the door for this dark path that we are on. Once we decided God was not first, have left God out of our decisions, are guided by our own truth instead of Biblical Truth, as Deuteronomy 8 warns, we are on a path of destruction and will be destroyed!
We legally slaughter 4,000 innocent babies daily. We make a mockery of God's Holy Institutions of Marriage and the family. We engage in every kind of perverted sexual practice man has been able to dream up. We worship and bow down to the false gods and idols of this world. We have LONG ago forsaken God and His Truth. We give minimal lip service to God but our hearts are far from Him.
Some have made half-hearted attempts to dispute that this is still a Christian nation. They cite huge percentages of people who believe in God, call themselves Christians, and go to church. First, these huge numbers are very misleading. While we still have an active, but dwindling Christian subculture, the reality is we have virtually ZERO impact on society or the culture we live in. We have retreated behind the four walls of our churches and left the culture to the wolves of satan to devour. This is clearly no longer a Christian nation and hasn't been for many years now.
I love you and care about you so much. As you read up to this point you can get pretty discouraged. The point of this message today is just the opposite. It is in this spiritual void that I believe in my heart we can see real revival break out. The end result of all of these issues is that people are hurting, and deep down looking for hope and answers. We have the answers and hope they are looking for. There is still a small window for this nation to repent, turn back to God and to His Truth. Our time is now!
I can only encourage you today. God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. God is calling you today, wants to use you today to help bring revival to this nation. Yes, eventfully we will be judged for our sins and wickedness, but I believe we can stay God's hand of judgment just like Nineveh did.
Over 120,000 souls were saved in Nineveh because they turned to God! I believe that we can see millions repent and turn to God in this coming revival. You can keep living your life, taking care of yourself, or you can sacrifice your life and allow God to use you for His glory. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God. When you come to the end of your life, it is not what you did for yourself that will matter, but what you did for God!!!
THAT MY FRIEND WILL BE OUR LASTING LEGACY!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
