Daily Devotional for Wednesday March 18, 2020
A wake-up call, but is anyone listening???
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, may You send the warm winds of Heaven across our nation and this world to kill this deadly coronavirus. We have no right to ask for Your mercy and are deserved of Your wrath and judgment for our rejection of You and Your Word. May we humble ourselves and get on our knees and beg for Your mercy. Help us oh Lord, we have no other in who we can turn to in times of trouble. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Entertain this thought with me. What if we never heard of the word “coronavirus?” IF the word ‘coronavirus” was never uttered, what would be happening today? Like every flu season there would be people sick with the flu. Like every flu season, sadly some, mostly the elderly with other health issues would die. However, I suggest that people would be filling out their brackets for March Madness starting tomorrow. People would be going to work in record numbers. Kids of all ages would be going to school. People would be flying to different destination and taking cruises. The financial markets would be hovering around record territory. Yesterday the Chicago River would have been dyed green and we would have had St. Patrick Day parades in cities around the nation. The NBA and NHL would be getting ready for their playoffs. People would be eating out in restaurants and having drinks in bars. Tens of thousands of college kids would be enjoying Spring Break. There would be plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and Purell in stores around the nation. LIFE WOULD BE GOING ON AS NORMAL!!! Instead, people in the United States and around the world are living in fear! How could this happen? Well, the Director General of the World Health Organization (that is controlled by China) severely overstated the fatality rate helping to lead to the global panic that we are experiencing. In perspective, when you look at historic pandemics, coronavirus is a blip on that timeline. When you add in an irresponsible media who was only too happy to hype this outbreak in an attempt to damage President Trump, you have the current situation we are living through at this moment. Listen, I am NOT minimizing the people who are ill or those who have lost their lives or will lose their lives. We are praying for them. But I AM saying this has been overhyped, overblown, and as it passes in the coming weeks there needs to be an accounting since the fear our nation is living under, the damage done to millions of people and the nation’s economy, SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED!!! (DO NOT MISS READING ONE WORD OF TODAY’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL BELOW!!!)

“If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.” Deuteronomy 8:19
A wake-up call for anyone who is listening!!! For those who have followed Liveprayer for any length of time, you know I am not a conspiracy theorist. I keep what we do here each day grounded in the Truth of God’s Word and on the facts of a given situation. So, indulge me for a moment and contemplate what I am going to share with you. There are no accidents or coincidence with God. There are also virtually zero major events that occur in our world that are “accidental.”
During the 2009 Swine Flu outbreak, apx. 60 million people in the United States were infected and apx. 18,000 died. The Obama Administration didn’t even make it an issue until over 1,000 people had died. Yet, there were no disruptions in our daily lives. Sporting events went on as scheduled. Schools weren’t cancelled. Restaurants and bars weren’t closed. People weren’t told to stay home. The financial markets didn’t have any reaction due to the Swine Flu. We never heard the words “social distancing.”
One major reason was how the media handled the Swine Flu outbreak. In watching hours of news coverage from those critical periods, there was very good and honest reporting on what was happening. There was also no condemnation of the Obama Administration and how they were handling the health crisis. It was understood this was a serious issue and it was reported as such. However, there was no doom and gloom, no hysterical coverage, certainly no blaming the government in any way.
For 21 years in the Daily Devotional and 17 years on the TV program, I have contemporaneously dealt with the major events in our nation and the world from a Biblical worldview. In looking back on my notes from the TV program and the Daily Devotionals of that time, I asked people to pray about the Swine Flu outbreak and those affected, but that was the extent of it since it really wasn’t treated as a major event.
We also know that every year during flu season, apx. 26,000 people die during a slow season while up to 60,000 die during a busy season. Even so, there is no disruption in our daily lives. So why now? Why this time?
Let me offer a possible answer. The 1 enemy of the United States without question is China. While we must try to get along with China like all of the nations of the world, they are NOT our friend! President Trump took the unprecedented and according to some people, outrageous steps to impose harsh tariffs on China.
This was done to force the Communist Chinese to renegotiate a more fair trade deal with the US and try stop them from stealing our intellectual property and other harmful acts they have been engaged in for decades to gain a decided advantage over our country economically and militarily. Those actions taken by the Trump Administration ended up creating the worst year China has had financially in the past 5 decades!
COVID-19 came out of the Wuhan Province of China where their top bio-weapons lab is located. I don’t think it is out of the question that the coronavirus was unleashed with the ultimate goal of hurting the United States economically, no matter what the cost to their own people or people around the world. Those considerations would be a ZERO deterrent to the evil Chinese government if they believed their plan to hurt the US economically would be achieved.
*DON’T FORGET, CHINA FOR ALL INTENSIVE PURPOSES CONTROLS THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION!!!
The Chinese are also very studious in regard to how the United States operates at every level of our daily life. They are fully aware that the mainstream media in this country has a clear bias and even hatred towards President Trump. Their intelligence people know just like the intelligence services of other countries that the entire Russia/collusion charge was purely fictional. In fact, the intelligence services of countries like Great Britain, Australia, and Italy actually worked with the top Obama intelligence people like John Brennan and James Clapper to perpetuate the fraudulent Russia/collusion scheme.
Just this Monday the DOJ dropped their case against the Russian troll farms. This was the dramatic indictment of 16 Russians announced by Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein early on to give the media the narrative they needed to justify the work of the Mueller team.
The reality is Mueller’s people knew they would never have to actually go to trial since those indicted were all based in Russian and there was no way to extradite them. However, one of the defendants hired a US law firm, challenged the indictment, and when push came to shove after two years the DOJ had to back down since they had no ability to prove their case in court.
Currently, General Flynn is withdrawing his plea agreement and will force the DOJ to take him to trial. Like the Russian troll farm case, the DOJ will drop Flynn’s case because they can’t win and will be exposed for the tactics used to go after Flynn. Roger Stone’s conviction will be appealed and overturned based on the fact the foundation of the government’s case against him was that Russia hacked the DNC servers.
The presiding judge refused to let Stone’s attorney’s force the government to prove that foundational fact because they can’t, Russia had nothing to do with the hacking of the DNC servers, and that fact means the entire Russia/collusion charge from the start was totally fraudulent and intelligent services around the world like the Chinese knew it!
So all you have left is Michael Cohen in prison for tax evasion and bank fraud that took place years before he ever went to work for the Trump Companies, and Paul Manafort, again in prison for tax and bank fraud that took place many years before he took the reins of the Trump Presidential campaign. Cohen was forced to plead guilty or the government was going to put his wife in prison since she also signed their tax returns, and Manafort was only going to get leniency if he gave information on wrongdoing by President Trump that he didn’t have!
Immediately following the failed Mueller report came the impeachment hoax. Once again, a scam concocted by former Obama CIA director John Brennan who used one of his “people,” Eric Ciaramella, aka the fake whistleblower, and the IG who pushed the fake whistleblower report Michael Atkinson, who was involved at the DOJ during the whole Russia/collusion hoax.
Of course it took the House making totally unfair changes to the rules to get the impeachment charges passed since they had a majority. Those charges were thoroughly rejected in the Senate because there was no proof to substantiate either of the counts. It was nothing more than a politically motivated attempt to remove a duly elected President and again, the world including our 1 enemy China was watching.
All of this activity involved in the Russia and impeachment hoaxes were only possible due to a complicit media. Complicit isn’t a strong enough word. Did you ever wonder how all of the leaks to put President Trump in the worst light, much of those leaks purely fictional, came from two main sources?
The Washington Post and the New York Times printed leaked reports as real news which than made it to CNN, MSNBC, and liberal websites, creating an echo chamber effect. The government was so audacious they would often refer to their leaked media stories as evidence in court filings.
THE POINT IS CHINA KNEW WITH 100% CERTAINTY THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WOULD SEEK TO USE ANY SORT OF ECONOMIC OR HEALTH CRISIS TO ONCE AND FOR ALL TAKE DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND INSURE HE ISN’T RE-ELECTED IN NOVEMBER!!!
I love you and care about you so much. So, you are now free to call me paranoid, a conspiracy theorist, but facts are stubborn things. Nothing I have shared is not true and everything has been verified. Will anyone ever be able to prove China unleashed COVID-19 to try and hurt the United States, probably not.
However, their disinformation campaign actually trying to blame the US Army for planting COVID-19 in China sure demonstrates the actions of someone who is guilty. How curious is it that we offered our top scientists to go to Wuhan Province and help China in the early days of the outbreak. That offer was abruptly refused. Just yesterday the Chinese government kicked out US reporters from the country since they want 100% control over the news coverage during this time.
The fact is my friend, we live in an evil world. I submit to you that when you have forsaken God and His Truth you no longer can count on His protection. How long can this nation thumb its’ nose at God and not pay a price? What is that price? I don’t know, maybe an enemy unleashing a bio-weapon on our people that causes a total disruption of our way of life and greatly damages our economy!
That is only ONE possibility! The fact is, the possibilities of how God could allow our nation to be destroyed are virtually ENDLESS!!! We couldn’t even begin to defend ourselves from the different ways life as we know of could end overnight. Did anyone think a month ago we would be going through what we are going through at this very moment? NO!!!
I have warned people for over 2 decades that at some point God would eventually run out of patience and unleash His wrath and judgement on our wicked land. I personally don’t believe COVID -19 is that ultimate wrath and judgement, but a wake-up call. I guess we will find out in the coming weeks and months as life “returns to normal” if anyone is listening.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
