Daily Devotional for Thursday July 9, 2020
An example of a Godly leader!!!
(Jonah Chapter 3)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, use me as an instrument to bring unity within Your Body. Help me to take my stand for You with other brothers and sisters in Christ who won't bow their knee to baal, or compromise their faith for ANY reason. Empower me through Your Holy Spirit and let me be part of Your Body, walking in unity for Your glory! In the name of Jesus I pray, AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Solomon said in Proverbs 25:26, “Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.” These words from Solomon are a challenge to Believers today to STAND UP and SPEAK OUT! This is an admonition for all followers of Christ that we can’t sit in silence as the wicked work their evil deeds. For 21 years online and over 17 years on TV, I have without fear or compromise called out the godless who live and operate in rebellion to God’s Word. My words aren’t in my authority but the authority of the Truth of God’s inspired, inerrant Word that represents Absolute Truth! My admonition to my brothers and sisters in Christ has been that we must take our stand since this nation is lost in gross sin and rebellion to Almighty God, sin and rebellion that will bring His wrath and judgment on our land. The Chinese Flu outbreak, the rise of the anarchists at this moment are NOT an accident! They are God’s warnings, maybe His final warnings that if we don’t turn back to Him and Biblical Truth we will be destroyed. My friend, if God spared not His wrath on His own chosen people, are we so arrogant to think He will spare us? Remember, you and God are ALWAYS a majority! It was ONE reluctant prophet that caused the people of Nineveh to repent of their sins and turn to God who spared them His judgment for a season. THE SAME GOD WHO SPARED THE PEOPLE OF NINEVEH WHEN THEY REPENTED, IS THE VERY SAME GOD WHO WILL SPARE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IF WE REPENT!!! AMEN!!! (Please help me by sharing the Daily Devotional and TV program with everyone you know. This is a call to arms for God’s people to rise up and I need your help to link as many as you know to Liveprayer as we lead this nation back to Almighty God and Biblical Truth!)

The leader of a nation who gets it! For years I have been telling you that unless this nation has a "Nineveh moment," it would be doomed to experience the full wrath and judgment of God for our sins. We know in the Bible that after the prophet Jonah warned the people of Nineveh to repent of their sins or God would destroy them, the secular king believed the words of the prophet and ordered the people into sackcloth and ashes. The Bible says God spared Nineveh!
If you want to experience that "Nineveh moment" today, you may have to move to Uganda! During Uganda's 50th anniversary of independence from Britain, President Yoweri Museveni publicly repented of his personal sin and the sins of the nation. "I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness," Museveni prayed.
"We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal," Museveni said.
"Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict," Museveni prayed.
Next, the president dedicated Uganda to God.
"We want to dedicate this nation to you so that you will be our God and guide. We want Uganda to be known as a nation that fears God and as a nation whose foundations are firmly rooted in righteousness and justice to fulfill what the Bible says in Psalm 33:12: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. A people you have chosen as your own," Museveni prayed.
This I can assure you, GOD WILL HONOR THIS MAN'S PRAYERS! They key will be how will the people respond. Will they follow this Godly leader or rebel against him? Museveni received lots of criticism for passing laws criminalizing homosexual behavior. A current bill before the Ugandan Parliament increases the jail sentences for homosexual acts and includes criminal penalties for those who encourage or promote homosexuality.
I love you and care about you so much. If the people will follow their leader in repentance, Uganda could become one of the most blessed places on the planet. It could also become a model for other national leaders. God's promises are not limited to the United States, or one group of people, but they are universal and available to all.
I will be keeping a close watch on Uganda. Watching for how the bulk of the citizens their respond. Watching close that if the people follow their leader in this call for personal and national repentance, how God's blessings will flow across that nation. Praying ever since I heard of this incredible bold stand for the Lord, that it will be a spark to other nations around the world to follow suit, since it is the ONLY hope and answer for the United States, and the ONLY hope and answer for the nations of the world!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
