Daily Devotional for Sunday February 23, 2020
"Today the Jews!"
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know I have only one life, one life to live for You. This is my moment in human history. Please Lord, let me make the most if it. Use my life to do great things for You as I surrender it afresh to You each morning. When I take my last breath, let there be no regrets, no sadness, that I didn't use my life fully for Your Glory! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: A Federal judge has blocked the Mississippi “heartbeat” abortion ban. One of the new strategies by several states to limit the number of abortions is the “heartbeat” abortion ban that says once you can find the heartbeat of the baby, you can’t murder that child. Now to anyone with an open mind on this issue, even a supporter of killing innocent babies, the presence of a heartbeat equals the uncontradicted presence of life! Of course, those in the baby killing industry refuse to allow even ONE baby to live and go to court to fight ANY measure to restrict abortion at ANY time. This ruling is being appealed to the next highest court, and most likely will be joined with several other similar cases working their way through the courts on the way to the Supreme Court for an ultimate ruling on the issue. BE IN PRAYER for this case and ALL of the abortion cases that will be ending up in the Supreme Court in these next few years.

A phrase came out of Nazi Germany, "Today the Jews." As the Jews began to be persecuted under Adolph Hitler, the fact is most Germans sat back and said/did nothing. Their attitude was that what was happening to the Jews didn't affect them. The fact is if you sit back in silence while one group is targeted, you will wake up tomorrow and it is YOU who is the target!
This should matter to all Christians because, trust me, the church is under an all-out assault! The ultimate goal of this lost world is the complete control of all aspects of our daily lives... INCLUDING RELIGION! This is not paranoia but reality.!
Be assured, the targets won't be pastors who stay in their pulpits, or the Christian media, since the church and Christian media have virtually zero impact on society. Do you remember in the Old Testament during the reign of the various kings, when an evil king would come into power who he would go after? It wasn't the established religious community or the religious leaders of the day. IT WAS THE PROPHETS!
Read your Bible. The king wasn't concerned about the priests since most of them were either in his pocket, doing their own thing, or watering down the message so much they had little impact on the people. It was the prophet they always went after. The prophet of God couldn't be bought, he had no other agenda than God's, and he was the crazy one that would go into the public square and boldly tell the people the Truth from God without compromise or any concern for his own safety or life!
Trust me, the lost world will not be going after gutless wonders like Joel Osteen, or sell-outs like Rick Warren, or the prosperity pimps on Christian TV. They will be coming after the Bill Keller’s who will stand firm and faithfully declare the whole Truth of the Bible in the public arena and call the nation to repentance and people to turn their lives to Jesus Christ.
They will target those like me who have the audacity to call abortion murder, who favor the enemies of Israel, who support the perversion of God’s holy institution of marriage, and promote all kinds of sexual deviancy making them an enemy of God!!!
I love you and care about you so much. So what can Christians do? I have tried to explain that we must come together as one, to speak with one voice with no personal agenda, only the agenda of God. Sadly, those who have large followings are more concerned about building their own kingdoms than God's. They aren't interested in leading the nation back to God, only finding people who agree with them so they can gain their financial support. This fiefdom mentally is why despite our numbers we have virtually zero influence on our culture.
I can only encourage you today. God has raised up Liveprayer for this moment in human history. 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 the wake of a true national 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. Read that again. 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. The battle for the souls of this nation is not lost yet, and by turning back to God and His Truth it can be won!!!
Remember, "Today the Jews!"
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
