"It is an abomination to kings to do evil..."
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don't let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afraid to speak up. Now more than ever I need your strength to be the servant you have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: the time great men of God should be standing up and leading the people at this critical moment in history, virtually all with a huge platform are hiding under their bed! THE SILENCE IS DEAFENING!!! As our nation faces a historic crisis affecting every man, woman, and child, the “pastor” of the largest church in the nation, the great and powerful “jellyfish” Joel Osteen is nowhere to be found. That is not a shock since his perverted prosperity gospel wrapped in cheap salesman motivational gibberish isn’t a message that is going to play very well during the greatest economic catastrophe since the Great Depression! To be fair to the smiling gutless wonder, you can go down the lineup of the Christian celebrity pastors and you will have a hard time finding any of them either, except on their normal Christian TV infomercials. Hinn, Parsley, Dollar, Jakes, Warren, and so many others have not been visible to the nation at large during these past 3 months. At a time when the people need to hear that God is trying to get their attention, that they must repent, turn from their sins, turn back to God and His Truth, there is nothing but silence from the nation’s supposed spiritual giants. Franklin Graham has been aggressively in the public arena during the past months. God bless him for his faithfulness to the Gospel. However, it was the same problem in Israel when God was trying to warn them of his coming judgment. The priests of the day had their palaces, fine robes, and sumptuous fare to dine on. While the people were being warned by God through the events they were seeing unfold each day, the priests who were called to deliver God’s message to the people were nowhere to be found. There were only a few faithful prophets who boldly declared God’s warning to the people, and sadly they were mostly ignored. However, don’t forget the prophet Jonah who the people of Nineveh DID listen to and were spared God’s judgement as they repented of their sins and acknowledged God. The good news is, while the supposed great men of God of the day are absent from the battlefield, God has raised up dedicated servants like Mike Lindell. Mike Lindell is better known as the “my pillow guy.” A drug addict who found Jesus and through his entrepreneurial gifts created a huge company. Lindell is using that platform to share the hope of Jesus with the lost and hurting today, a time when so many need REAL answers and REAL hope. AMEN!!!

It is an abomination to kings to do evil, for the throne is established by righteousness." Proverbs 16:12
Government control over local policing, after that...OVER RELIGION!!! Way back last summer during the Ferguson riots, I clearly laid out that the false narrative driven by the media was a much larger issue than a thug with a criminal record assaulting a police officer and getting killed in the process. I told you last summer with the visible involvement of President Obama and then Attorney General Eric Holder, as it became known the "protestors" were mostly paid professionals from various anarchist groups, as the demonization of the police by the media continued even after it was clear the police officer involved did nothing wrong cleared by the AG report, and you heard for the first time the term "police militarization," this was all about federalizing local police departments!!!
Of course, after Ferguson came Brooklyn, South Carolina, Baltimore, and other incidents in a steady stream of what amounted to little more than local police interactions with criminals. IN EVERY CASE the media's "martyr" had a long criminal record and either assaulted the police, was running from the police, or resisting arrest. It is always sad when someone loses their life, however, IN EVERY CASE these were not innocent young black men minding their own business being executed by the police as the media narrative wanted you to believe!
Every day in this nation there are thousands of interactions between the public and the police. It goes without saying there are bad cops out there, just like there are bad apples in EVERY profession. Having said that, well over 99% of our men and women who put on the uniform to serve their communities, literally putting their lives on the line every time they do, are honorable public servants.
For the President and AG to become involved in nothing more than local issues didn't make sense. For the media to demonize the police non-stop day after day didn't make sense. For the media harping on the "militarization of the police" was something we have never heard of prior to Ferguson, and was clearly a talking point fed to the media by the Obama administration! Add the presence of Sharpton who become President Obama's puppet for this effort, along with professional anarchist groups paying "demonstrators," and it was evident it was all an orchestrated effort to federalize local police departments in this nation!
It was just announced that the Federal Government will be doling out MILLIONS to "community groups" like Sharpton's and others, to "bridge the gap" between the local police and their communities. This is why so many pastors in many minority communities have exchanged being men of God for "community leaders" in order to cash in on the free government money!
Now you have President Obama's executive order the other day to prohibit local police departments from acquiring military equipment like tracked armored vehicles like tanks, weaponized aircraft, and high-caliber weapons and ammunition. Also included in this executive order was structuring a new federal agency to work with local police forces!!! DOES ANY MORE NEED TO BE SAID???
I am sharing this with you today since it should set off alarm bells that the Federal Government could soon be overseeing local police departments. In addition, it is a FACT that there is nothing more the Federal Government would love to do than oversee...RELIGION! With their takeover of the internet, it is crystal clear to me that it won't be long before the US Government will dictate what can and can't be said in regard to religion.
Don't forget, it was only a month ago when Hillary Clinton stated people need to change their "religious thoughts" in regard to killing innocent babies. How many times has President Obama ripped Christians for daring to believe the Bible regarding the sin of homosexuality, the perversion of God's Holy Institution of Marriage, killing babies, as well as their "intolerance" of Islam!
My friend, it is only a matter of time, and that is quickly running out. You already have over 50% of "churches" who have acquiesced and support the various gross sins rampant in our culture. You already have a vast majority of "pastors" who have voluntarily stopped preaching what God's Word teaches on the issues of the day so they don't "offend" anyone in their congregation or in the government!
I love you and care about you so much. I have shared this warning in various forms over and over and over during these past 16 years, and with great intensity the past 7 years! Taking much personal abuse from supposed "Christians," our government, as well as the non-believing world, I have REFUSED to be silent or compromise God's Truth. They will have to kill me to silence me, since the eternal souls of men are at stake AS WELL AS THE SOUL OF THIS NATION!
Our time is limited so please pray for me and stand with me as we bring HIS Truth to the lost masses, lead people to faith in Jesus Christ, and help lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
