DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER???
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, as I start another week let me make sure each day I do NOT take YOU or your blessings for granted. While there will be many times in this coming week I will face the challenges of day to day life, let them be reminders of how dependent I am on you each day, each hour, each minute, each second! You and You alone are my strength and hope. As You guide me thru each day, let me never forget that my greatest way of saying Thank You is in my decisions that honor You, and in my actions to let others know You are my Lord and Savior. Guide me oh great Jehovah I ask and pray in the name of Jesus...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: It is pretty sad when an evil dictator can understand how a specific issue can destroy the culture better than many religious leaders who are tasked with helping to protect the foundations of the culture. Let me say up front that a dictator is ultimately seeking what is in his best interest, not the people’s. Having laid that predicate, I find it interesting that the evil Vladimir Putin, the Russian dictator, stated recently that there will NEVER be same-sex marriage in Russia as long as he is the leader. Again, this is not from some deeply held religious conviction, but from his desire to control the Russian people. It is in this context that Putin has concluded the culture remains most stable with traditional marriage and family structures. Putin and all autocrats seek the stability of their people, and radical changes within the culture will always eventually challenge that stability. Again, while not their motivation, dictators on the scene in 2020 understand God’s plan for marriage and the family is the foundation to a stable culture. What a contrast to see faith leaders, primarily those proclaiming to be Christians, in free societies around the globe giving in to the destruction of the foundation of those societies without much of a fight. Many of these faith leaders actually end up supporting the perversion of God’s plan for marriage and the family. Sad!

DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER???????????
This is a special message from me to you, from my heart to yours. This is the conversation we would have if we were sitting across from each other in a local diner or restaurant sharing a cup of coffee (well, water for me since I don't drink coffee). This is just me, just sharing my heart with you today.
Today, in the US and all over the world, we have more Christian everything than ever in the 2000 years since our Lord walked this earth. At the same time, we have a nation and world that has thoroughly rejected Christ and His Truth, perverted who Jesus is, used Him to justify gross sin, all the while satan has virtually roamed without opposition successfully creating a global attitude to lead the vast percentage of the 7 billion people alive on our planet to the flames of hell for all eternity!!!
If you study the OT, you will see that from the very beginning, satan has used his guile and cunning to help guide the souls of men to hell, even using the very instruments of God to accomplish his goals. In the first chapters of Genesis we read of men who satan conned into thinking they could be like God, putting in their heart the idea to build a "tower" to heaven.
Many of Israel's kings were nothing more than satan's pawns. Even the very men of God people looked to for Divine guidance were hijacked by the enemy to lead His people astray. Fast forward to 2020 and you will see nothing has really changed. So many of the men and women of God people look to for spiritual direction have sold their souls to satan for the worldly riches and pleasures of this brief journey through life.
Let me remind you, that the ultimate agenda of satan is to lead the eternal souls of men to hell. Sadly, the church, the one instrument of God that is to be the salt and light of this earth is virtually non-existent in today's culture. In too many cases the church has actually allowed the Godless culture to lead the people due to the better percentage of the last 2 generations who have never been to a church.
Well over 60% of "Christian"churches now condone gross sins like homosexuality and abortion. In the past 20 years, you have over 40% of people who go to church, attending a church using a man-made marketing purpose driven/seeker/emerging church/prosperity gospel marketing strategies designed to put warm bodies in the pews, not converts to the faith!
Is it any wonder why we have a weak, Biblically illiterate, ineffective, and inconsequential church today?
PRAISE GOD FOR THOSE FEW PASTORS AND CHURCHES WHO HAVE NO BOWED THEIR KNEE TO BAAL AND ARE REACHING OUT TO THE LOST WITHOUT COMPROMISE WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!!!
The Christian media, book publishers, TV and radio stations and networks, music publishers, as well as the para-church ministries, are virtually all simply preaching to the choir. I understand since that is where their support comes from and how they survive year to year. The problem is, those who need to hear the Gospel the most never will.
The "professional" ministries are too busy compromising the Truth to be politically correct and raising money for their newest building or private jet, to care about anything other than how to reach more Christians to fund their fiefdoms. So the lost masses are left to the wolves of satan who will lead their souls to hell, while most of those who possess the Truth hide in the safety and profitability of the "Christian trough."
I love you and care about you so much. I am the first to admit, despite knowing we have impacted tens of millions of lives over 20+ years, maybe even yours, seeing over 1.6 million souls we know of come to faith in Jesus, responding to over 170 million emails for prayer, in the larger the picture we have failed.
This nation and world is worse off spiritually than when we started Liveprayer 20 years ago. While I never lose sight that our first job is to minister to the needs of individual people each day, God has clearly called me and His ministry here to play a key role in leading this nation back to His Truth while helping millions find everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ.
I am finished failing, finished accepting anything less than a radical spiritual change to this nation!
Over the years and through the sacrifce of thousands, Liveprayer has created many tested and proven successful ministry components for this moment. In 2003, we successfully created a unique TV program for secular television that most nights got higher ratings than multi-million dollar national programs.
Several years ago, we launched the Jonah Project, our initial call for this nation to turn back to God and His Truth. Shortly after, we unveiled the Liveprayer Church, the world's online cathedral where now over 10,000 plus come from around the world each week to worship. Recently, we called forth 7,000 who refuse to bow their knee to baal to be part of the modern day remnant.
ALL OF THESE PROVEN AND SUCCESSFUL MINISTRY PIECES ARE IN PLACE, READY, TO WORK IN HARMONY TO LEAD THIS ONCE GODLY NATION, THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD, AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, EVEN BILLIONS, OF LOST AND SEARCHING SOULS TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!!!
Please be praying for me and those who are in the Liveprayer family. Even though we have been under the gun financially more than usual, that is because satan knows how effective we have been and how dangerous Liveprayer is to his agenda. This ministry is not about buildings, huge staffs, private jets, mansions, luxury cars, and $10,000 suits, or building our own kingdom, this ministry from day one has been about building the Kingdom of God and........ SOULS!!!
Let me ask the question one more time, DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN ANY LONGER? IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES, THAN TELL OTHERS ABOUT LIVEPRAYER, PRAY FOR ME, STAND WITH ME, SACRIFCE AS YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HELP ME, AND MOST OF ALL...TELL OTHERS THAT THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND ONLY ANSWER!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
