Daily Devotional for Friday March 20, 2020
The example of our early brothers and sisters in Christ...and leading a nation back to God and His Truth!!!
(2 Chronicles 7:13,14)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, give me the discernment I need today to recognize the traps of satan. Help me to see with spiritual eyes and hear with spiritual ears YOUR Truth alone. In the name of Jesus...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Sadly, whenever we have a financial downturn crime goes up. That is simply a fact. So in the midst of this national health crisis that also presents opportunities evil people to take advantage of others, most will be dealing with some form of financial hardships in the coming months. However, today we have an added problem. MANY OF THOSE WE EXPECT TO STOP CRIME ARE NOW PEOPLE ACTUALLY HELPING TO FACILITATE CRIME!!! As I have shared, evil billionaire and atheist George Soros has quietly been spending lots of money to elect far left prosecutors in many of our largest cities that are virtually all controlled by the Democratic Party. These Soros-backed prosecutors have a 3-fold agenda. One is to push a cashless bail policy that would in essence let EVERYONE out on bail pending trial. Bail is not only to insure a person charged with a crime shows up for court, but to keep dangerous criminals in jail since they present a danger to society. Two is to literally not prosecute many crimes. Instead of enforcing the laws on the books, these rogue prosecutors are themselves deciding which crimes to charge. They are not charging most drug crimes, property crimes, and many others they determine not to be “violent.” Third is pushing to let people already in jail out early. Again, they state only non-violent criminals, but many in jail had very violent charges pled down. Why would these people elected to protect the public being doing the exact opposite? These Soros-backed acolytes are putting the general public in grave danger all in the name of “criminal justice reform” and combatting “racist policies.” People like Soros profit off of instability. Ultimately it is to bring chaos and confusion into daily life and we know who the author of chaos and confusion is! Thankfully we have the 2nd Amendment in this nation. May I counsel my friends that it is wise and prudent to take advantage of your 2nd Amendment rights to protect yourself and your family. That is especially true in a time of upheaval like we are currently experiencing. It is even that much more true knowing we are in for a period of economic challenges where crime always spikes. I believe it is IMPERATIVE due to the FACT there is a very real movement in place as I speak to make it easier for those who have a propensity to commit crimes of all kinds!!!

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13.14
***PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT AND PRAY BEFORE YOU READ THIS MESSAGE. I AM ASKING YOU TO SHARE THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE WITH EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY YOUR PASTOR AND THOSE IN YOUR CHURCH AND FRIENDS WHO KNOW THE LORD. I AM ASKING THE LORD FOR HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO TAKE THEIR STAND FOR THE LORD IN THESE LAST DAYS AND WORK WITH ME TO HELP LEAD THIS NATION BACK TO THE ALMIGHTY AND HIS TRUTH WHILE SAVING SOULS.
AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD, IT WAS A HANDFUL OF MEN WHO WERE SOLD OUT, SACRIFICED EVERYTHING INCLUDING THEIR VERY LIFE, THAT GOD USED TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL WORLDWIDE AND IMPACT LITERALLY BILLIONS OVER THE PAST 2,000 YEARS.
IT IS CLEAR FROM WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR NATION THAT GOD IS PREPARED TO REMOVE HIS HAND OF PROTECTION AND BLESSING FROM THIS LAND AT ANY MOMENT. WE HAVE NO MORE TIME AND MUST ACT NOW. I AM ASKING THE LORD TO RAISE UP HIS PEOPLE IN THESE FINAL DAYS WHO ARE PREPARED TO SACRIFICE ALL THEY HAVE FOR THE GOSPEL, AND TO STAND WITH ME AS WE LEAD THIS NATION OUT OF THE SPIRITUAL ABYSS AND BACK TO HIS BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS!!!
In the early days of the church, Rome had 2 major plagues, the Antonine Plague (165-180 A.D.) and the Cyprian Plague (249-262 A.D.). These two plagues killed apx. one third of the population, including Emperors Marcus Aurelius, Hostilian, and Claudius II Gothicus. Christians not only led in caring for the sick and dying, but in the process led many to faith in Christ.
The Bishop Dionysius stated that in Alexandria, Egypt, during the Cyprian Plague, "At the first onset of the disease, the pagans pushed the sufferers away and fled from their dearest, throwing them into the roads before they were dead and treated unburied corpses as dirt, hoping thereby to avert the spread and contagion of the fatal disease."
Bishop Dionysius went on, "Heedless of danger, they (the Christians) took charge of the sick, attending to their every need and ministering to them in Christ, and with them departed this life serenely happy; for they were infected by others with the disease, drawing on themselves the sickness of their neighbors and cheerfully accepting their pains. Many, in nursing and curing others, transferred their death to themselves and died in their stead ... [a death that] seems in every way the equal to martyrdom."
Cyprian, the bishop of Carthage, recounted, "Although this mortality had contributed nothing else, it has especially accomplished this for Christians and servants of God, that we have begun gladly to seek martyrdom while we are learning not to fear death."
These sacrificial acts by the early followers of Christ didn’t just provide comfort to the sick and dying, no doubt even saving many lives, but it also helped spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost of their day! They were early evangelists of the Gospel as they shared the hope we have in Christ as they ministered to those who were being ravaged by these two plagues!
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FOLLOWED LIVEPRAYER FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME, YOU KNOW THAT FOR THE NEARLY 21 YEARS OF THE LORD’S MINISTRY HERE, I HAVE DECLARED THIS NATION WAS DUE GOD’S WRATH AND JUDGEMENT AND ONLY TURNING BACK TO THE ALMIGHTY AND HIS TRUTH WOULD SPARE US THAT WRATH AND JUDGEMENT!
LIKE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE EARLY CHURCH, IN THE MIDST OF THIS GLOBAL CRISIS IT IS NOW OUR TIME TO RISE UP AND LEAD THIS NATION AND WORLD TO THE ONLY ANSWER AND HOPE THERE IS...JESUS CHRIST!!!
Like our Christian brothers and sisters in the early days of the church, now is the time for our faith to be made whole by our actions. True Biblical faith requires action! This ministry has walked that walk of faith for nearly 21 years as we have ministered to tens of millions worldwide during that time while helping to lead over 1.6 million souls we know of to faith in Jesus Christ.
NOW IS THE TIME, THIS IS THE MOMENT FOR WHICH GOD HAS RAISED UP LIVEPRAYER!!!
Our greatest walk of faith is upon us as we lead our nation back to God and His Truth while helping lost souls find a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our faith is unwavering, our actions prayerfully prepared. The same God who has blessed His work here for 21 years, is the same God who will guide us to victory. God is calling all who know Him to take their stand...TODAY!!!
Are YOU ready to help me lead this nation back to God and His Truth? Our time is NOW! After 246 months online and 17 years on TV, allowing God to use our work to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide over those many years, it is time for Liveprayer and those in the Liveprayer family to begin our final work for the Lord and lead this nation back to God and His Truth while guiding the lost to faith in Jesus Christ!!!
Over these past 21 years, God has given us the vision to create a bold and visible outreach like none other via our interactive internet ministry, the TV program outside the Christian TV universe, the Jonah Project, the Remnant, and the Liveprayer Church. All of these ministry tools have been used to reach the lost and hurting for Christ and bring Biblical Truth into the marketplace.
The Liveprayer family, who has made it all possible, are people from all different denominations and churches (and no church), coming together as one Body. Our goals have never been earthly, only heavenly!!!
Our two main proven and effective ministry tools to lead this nation back to God and His Truth, while guiding the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, are the Liveprayer.com website and Daily Devotional, and the Liveprayer TV program.
The Spirit has shown me that our window of opportunity is very short and closing rapidly. It is only a matter of time before God unleashes His final wrath and judgment on this once Godly nation for turning our backs on Him and worshipping every false god and idol man has created in his rebellious mind, for slaughtering 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours, for our gross sexual perversions, and embracing every sin imaginable.
I believe in my heart we can see one more great revival in this land before we face God's judgment, and millions, tens of millions of souls can be saved. In the end, that has always been what Liveprayer is about..SOULS!!! You know me well enough by now to know I am not interested in money, or fame, or power, or any of the things of this temporal world. At 62, my life is winding down. In spite of the incredible impact Liveprayer has had on tens of millions of people worldwide over these many years now, our work is still not complete.
We don't have to continue living in a nation that mocks and demeans God and our Lord. We don't have to live in a land that kills babies without conscience. We don't have to live in a land that makes a mockery of God's Holy Institution of Marriage. We don't have to live in a land that is waiting for the judgment of God when we could be enjoying the blessings of God.
I love you and care about you so much. I pray that like our brothers and sisters during the 2 plagues that affected the Roman Empire, we will be found worthy as it is now our turn to stand for Christ! This current health crisis has shown people how quickly life as we know it can change. Our time is up, we must act decisively, and we must act now. Liveprayer is on the offensive literally 24/7/365 in battling for the soul of this nation and around the world. I am asking you to stand with me and help me!!!
God has always had a people, a remnant, those who refused to bow their knee to baal. It is time for the remnant to rise up and call this nation to repentance, call this nation to turn back to God and Biblical Truth, and tell the lost and hurting their hope now and for all eternity is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
