Halloween - Part 2 of 2
(Romans 12:1-2; Titus 2:12)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me Your strength to stand for Your Truth no matter what the cost. It is easy to call myself a follower of Jesus, but when confronted, when challenged, when faced with persecution, will I still say I am a follower of Jesus!!! I love You Lord and ask for Your strength so no matter what I have to endure for my faith, I will stand firm. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: YOU MUST SHARE THIS MESSAGE ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS AND WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!! How life can change forever for Christians after November 3rd!!! What I am about to share with you is not a hypothetical or fear mongering, it is what WILL happen in this nation if God continues to pour out His judgement on this nation by allowing Joe Biden to become President on November 3rd!
It is virtually assured that if Biden wins, they will also take over the Senate and keep the House. They will immediately end the Senate filibuster meaning a simple majority can pass any legislation. They will than grant statehood to Washington DC and Puerto Rico, assuring them of 4 more Democratic Senators and additional Democrats in the House. At some point they will also add an additional 4 liberal Justices to the Supreme Court, so instead of a 6-3 conservative majority it will become 7-6 for the liberals on the court. At this point they can do whatever they want. The radical New Green Deal for one. No doubt they will change voting rules that will benefit them in future elections to insure they never lost power. You can be certain they will start to chip away at the 2nd Amendment. We will get back in bed with the enemy of Israel, Iran, blowing up the gains for peace in the Middle East.
No doubt we will rejoin the foolish Paris Climate Accords, costing US taxpayers BILLIONS while China, India and other nations pollute away. We will be all in on US taxpayers funding abortion around the world. What is left of the greatest healthcare system in the world will be destroyed and it will be 100% controlled by the government. Taxes will rise dramatically for EVERYONE, the middle class as always hurt the most. Tyranny you are witnessing in Democratic states will come to ALL states. No doubt there will be an effort to destroy all conservative media so what is left will truly be “state-run” like in Russia and China. Don’t doubt there will be some retribution for anyone who supported President Trump these past 4 years. Anarchists will have a seat at the table to try and destroy policing and the criminal justice system! THIS IS NOT PARANOIA, THIS IS WHAT IS ALREADY BEING SPOKEN ABOUT PUBLICALLY!!!
My friend, we will no longer be a two-party system, but under Democratic control for many decades to come! Don’t believe me? Do the Democratic states of California, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, and many more mean anything? While they have Republicans in all of these states, they have been controlled by Democrats for decades now, and will be for many decades to come!
So why should all of these political issues matter to Christians? As the radical elements of the Democratic Party takes power, the Globalists with Communist, Marxist and Socialist policies, their number one enemy is Biblical Christians! In any nation led by such political ideologies, neutralizing or literally destroying Christianity is top on their agenda. They will do things like forcing sermons to be vetted, turning over all membership information. Do you think that is just paranoia? I have reported over the last few years cities in the US right now who have tried to institute such policies. If I had told you 6 months ago 100% of our churches would be shut down and 6 months later over 50% would still be shut down, you would have called me crazy.
Of course they won’t be able to wipe out Christianity, God will always have a remnant. However, they can make our lives much more difficult in regards to worshipping our Lord and sharing our faith. Many, like in other countries, will be jailed, beaten, and even killed for our faith. After over 21 years of warning people about what was coming in our nation, please just don’t read these words and ignore them. No matter what happens politically, we have a job to do for the Lord. The answer I shared with you over 21 years ago is still the answer today...WE MUST LEAD THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH!!! THAT IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR MILLIONS OF SOULS, AND THAT IS THE ONLY HOPE TO SAVE OUR NATION!!!

Halloween - Part 2 of 2
A Christian's response to Halloween. As I was in prayer eleven years ago about Halloween and what God wanted me to share during that time, part of my focus was on satan and how he operates. The Bible calls him an "angel of light." He is a great imitator. He takes the perfection of God and perverts it. So as I was praying, God poured into my spirit that it is time for Christians worldwide to rise up on the most important day of the year for satan, Halloween, and claim that day for God!
The first step, is to make it a special day for Christians worldwide. If Hallmark cards and candy companies can make up holidays to sell greeting cards and chocolate, why can't the church? I am proud to announce that until our Lord returns, October 31 will now be "Witnessing for Jesus Day." This holiday was started ten years ago by the 2 million worldwide who are part of Liveprayer, and we will continue to promote it as well as follow through to make this a legitimate, recognized holiday every October 31!
The goal is for Christians to share their faith in Jesus Christ with at least 3 people during the day. If every Christian worldwide shared their faith in Christ with 3 people, it would literally turn the world upside down over night. The world will be "witnessing" their rebellion of God with their Halloween parties, their costumes, and satanic services. THIS IS THE PERFECT DAY for Christians to witness to this lost world that we live in, that Jesus Christ is "The Way, the Truth, and the Life."
What else can Christians do on our new holiday? PLENTY! Every community needs churches to put on "Hell House" or "Judgment House" productions to counter the haunted houses the world promotes. Make sure your home is well lit and inviting for children out trick or treating. In addition to candy, give them a gospel tract or a little "Gospel of John" booklet. Also, pray with each group of kids before they leave. Your church should have the resources to get tracts and the Gospel of John booklets at a very low cost.
NO CHILD SHOULD COME TO YOUR HOME AND LEAVE WITHOUT KNOWING THAT JESUS IS LORD!
For those with children, take them out trick-or-treating! Have them dress up as Bible characters. Let them go door to door for candy, BUT, in return for the candy, they should give the homeowner a tract or a Gospel of John booklet. GOD CAN USE THESE CHILDREN TO HELP SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST TO PEOPLE THAT WILL NEVER GO TO CHURCH!!!
Churches, instead of holding an alternative to Halloween party at the church, should get the children involved in evangelizing their neighborhoods! They have the perfect excuse to go door to door on this night. God can use these children to share the hope and love of Christ with people that will never hear the message any other way. DON'T UNDERESTIMATE HOW GOD CAN USE THE CHILDREN ON THIS NIGHT!!!
So, let's review. We now have a new Christian holiday. It is, "Witnessing for Jesus Day," and will be celebrated every year on October 31st. It will be a day for Christians worldwide to witness to others what Jesus Christ has done in their life. We will have churches in every community putting on "Hell House" or "Judgment House" productions as an alternative to the haunted house productions of the world. Christians will make their homes inviting for children out trick or treating, and in addition to candy, give them a Gospel Tract or Gospel of John booklet. Children of ALL AGES will become mighty witnessing agents for the Lord. They will dress up as Bible characters and go out into their neighborhoods to get candy, BUT, will give the homeowner a Gospel tract or Gospel of John booklet.
I love you and care about you so much. There is no reason a Christian should have to fear Halloween, nor is there any reason a Christian should have to participate in the way the world celebrates Halloween. It actually is a perfect opportunity to go on the offensive and make this a day to celebrate witnessing our faith to this lost and dying world. What better day could there be than the day the world celebrates rebelling against God--HALLOWEEN!!!
I will be praying for you. I pray that you become bold and part of the eleventh annual "Witnessing for Jesus Day." For the Christian, sharing our faith is not an option, but is a commandment from God. It is something that we should be doing EVERY day. But there is no better day of the year than Halloween for Believers worldwide to share their faith in Jesus Christ with this lost world. THAT, my friend, needs to be a Christian's response to Halloween!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
