Hebrews 12:2 Look To Jesus Christ The Author And Finisher Of Our Faith

Posted by Job on May 29, 2007

Today’s Broadcast How to Pray for Our Daily Bread Listen Online|Podcast

BIBLE MEDITATION: “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: What does it mean to “look to Jesus” to have all of our needs met? Well, let’s say I borrow ten thousand dollars from Dan, a friend of mine, but then I discover that I can’t pay it back. Dan is on to me and says, “If you don’t pay it back, I’m going to foreclose on you.” So I go over to another friend, Tom, and tell him about my dire situation and ask for his help. Tom says, “That’s alright, Adrian, look to me.” Notice that he didn’t say, “Look at me.” He said, “Look to me.” In other words, “I’ll handle it.” That’s what the Bible means when it says “look to Jesus.” It means look unto Him for whatever you need.

ACTION POINT: Who is looking to you to have their needs met today? Are you, then, looking to God or are you trying to do it on your own? Visit Love Worth Finding Ministries 

Do you know Jesus?

Life Coach Paula White, Juanita Bynum, TD Jakes, Noel Jones Celebrating ONENESS Together!

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

Update: see Paula White Claims That Jesus Christ Died In Vain!

I must ask: have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, follow this link

The Three Step Salvation Plan

 Check out the new homepage for life coach Paula White: http://www.paulawhite.org/ I am, well, speechless. It is similar to Juanita Bynum’s homepage http://www.juanitabynum.com/. What I love about White’s homepage and Bynum’s homepage is that no one can claim to be deceived. Why? THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY THAT ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING TO GET CLOSER TO GOD WOULD SPEND FIVE SECONDS ON THOSE PAGES! Both homepages are all about Juanita Bynum, Inc. and Paula White, Inc. Did a search on Paula White’s homepage on “Jesus”. No match. Now though oneness pentecostal heretic Bynum and I do not worship the same Jesus Christ, I did the same on Juanita Bynum’s homepage. No match. What you DO SEE ON BOTH ARE HUGE PICTURES OF THE PREACHER (and more than one) AND PLENTY OF THINGS TO BUY!

What you also see is this “conference” that Paula White is promoting. Who is going to be there? Why two of the leading deceivers of the oneness pentecostal cult, TD Jakes and Noel Jones! Also there will be Darlene Bishop, who once on her TV show bragged about how she was robbed, received a divine revelation of the identity of the robber, and called her criminal brother to go rob the robber and get her stuff back and more! (But she’s a preacher so that makes it OK, right?) Kathy Troccoli and Donnie McClurkin are also there … it really is getting harder to defend people like this and buy their music if they are going to be walking in agreement with these folk. But back to Paula White: she believes in Trinity? Right? Actually, I have just PRESUMED it since I have never actually heard her talk about her doctrine (or any doctrine at all for that matter) on her show or on her many appearances on TBN. So, let us say that she DOES believe in Trinity. Why is she running conferences with apostate blasphemers? Isn’t SOUND DOCTRINE important to her? And I say the same regarding Jones and Jakes. If they truly believe their own doctrine and it matters to them, why are they defiling their garments with people deceived by the Romans, Babylonians, Hindus, and whoever else (see this link https://healtheland.wordpress.com/2007/05/13/why-do-mormons-jehovahs-witnesses-and-oneness-pentecostals-agree/) into being pagans worshipping three gods? Why don’t they denounce us apostates and contend earnestly for the truth? Don’t they care about our souls? Don’t they care about their own? Well, here is the answer: THEY DON’T. Anyone who knows and cares about how important the nature of God is to one’s salvation would NEVER share a platform with someone who rejects and opposes it. THE ONLY REASON WHY THESE PEOPLE COME TOGETHER ON CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, RUN REVIVALS AND CONFERENCES TOGETHER, AND VISIT EACH OTHER’S CHURCHES IS LOVE OF THE WORLD! MONEY, FAME, AND POWER, THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT! Now of course, some of them may claim that it is actually all about “unity” and “how we all need to cease these divisions and come together.” That would work … if I were blind or had my eyes closed. But since I both can see and choose to, all I have to do is take one look at what I am “uniting” and “coming together” with before I turn aside after the straight and narrow path that leads to heaven. Now as for you oneness pentecostals, if you truly believed what your cult preached, you’d be doing the same. You ought to be denouncing YOUR famous TV preachers for not exposing what you claim to be OUR lies. But instead of trying to expose and oppose what you claim to be our lies, you want to UNIFY with them? Such is complete insanity, and is precisely the likes of which that I will take a pass on.

Father God in the Name of Jesus Christ, please raise up your mighty hand against all those who are perverting the gospel for gain and with false doctrines. May those who do so out of ignorance, please show them the error of their ways, and those who deceive on purpose please pull Your people away from them. We know, Father, that Your Will must be done, that all things must be fulfilled, and people have to decide which they love foremost, You or themselves. I am merely asking, Father, that the eyes of the deceived be opened and that they choose to seek after and fight for Your righteousness. Amen.

Benny Hinn Trick Exposed! Oh Yes, And More Paula White And Joel Osteen Stuff

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

Update: another Paula White outrage Whites scam widow and single mother! Hey, black people who have made Paula White the #1 rated show on BET … DO YOU CARE? Then again, anti – Trinitarian TD Jakes is #2, so maybe you don’t.

Update: see Paula White Claims That Jesus Christ Died In Vain!

I must ask: have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, follow this link The Three Step Salvation Plan

I regret that I have not been doing much on the topic of false preachers lately; I have my reasons and they are good ones. But fortunately, Independent Conservative has still been at it! See this excellent piece on how he gets so many people to fall out at once. See Benny Hinn Secret Exposed

And oh, Paula White. Boy, this lady had me fooled so thoroughly that at one time I was actually buying her books and tapes to give them to other people having spiritual problems. Yesterday, I turn on some Christian TV network (I forget which) and she talks about this great time that she had at this conference where “great anointed messages were brought by ‘powerful men of god'” TD Jakes and Noel Jones. Men of god? Maybe … but which god? Not the God of the Bible that pre – exists eternally in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, but of their oneness pentecostal modalism cult through which they are ordained as “bishops.” More on that later. This post will talk about the fraud and deceit perpetrated by Paula and Randy White (I list Paula first because even though Randy is the “head pastor”, he uses Paula as the front for his “ministry” because he knows that she can rake in more money in one week than he can in a year). The most amazing part (to me) is Randy White claiming to have college degrees that he does not possess. See Randy and Paula White Evil Vipers.

While you are at it, we have another PROTESTANT abuse scandal Gerald Griffith Guilty

More stupid prosperity tricks (after the David Letterman “stupid pet tricks” feature)Todd Hall Pimp

And no entry of this sort would be complete without a Joel Osteen mention of how he manages to do an Easter sermon WHILE LEAVING OUT JESUS CHRIST:
Much Osteen But Not Much Jesus Christ

I say again, there are two reasons why I do this, folks. The first reason is your soul. I do not want people to spend an eternity in the lake of fire on account of following some false preacher or doctrine; being destroyed for the lack of knowledge. A lot of people out there already know that something isn’t quite right with these people and are under Holy Spirit conviction. For people such as this, I am confronting you with the truth of all this filthy dirty sinful ugliness, pulling up these people’s skirts to expose their nakedness (Nahum 3:5) so that you can no longer deny it and be forced to turn aside from it. The second reason: my soul. I am going to be judged just like everyone else. If there is a false preacher out there, you are supposed to expose him and warn the nations of him. If you don’t, God will hold you personally accountable on judgment day! What makes you think otherwise? Look, how can you claim to love the God that you never see when you do not love your brother that you see every day enough to warn him that he is following a liar and a cheat? So even if I had NO CONCERN WHATSOEVER FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST, I would still be doing this out of concern for myself. So I have to ask of you: why aren’t you doing likewise? Even if you aren’t concerned for your brother or sister in the Lord, aren’t you even concerned for yourself, and the day that you have to stand before God in judgment?

Father God in the Name of Jesus Christ, please raise up your mighty hand against all those who are perverting the gospel for gain and with false doctrines, and those who know Your Word but choose to live in rebellion to it. May those who do so out of ignorance, please show them the error of their ways, and those who deceive on purpose please pull Your people away from them. We know, Father, that Your Will must be done, that all things must be fulfilled, and people have to decide which they love foremost, You or themselves. I am merely asking, Father, that the eyes of the deceived be opened and that they choose to seek after and fight for Your righteousness. Amen.

Is Evil Real?

Micah 7:2,  2 Timothy 3:1,2

***WANT A BLESSING?  The TV program this past Tuesday night was POWERFUL!
The Holy Spirit laid a great word on my heart about how we are a “peculiar
people,” and the phone calls were amazing!  One incredible testimony after
another.  Real life miracles only God could have performed!  Take a few
minutes today and watch this amazing program.
http://www.liveprayer.com/archvid.cfm?d=052207

***NEVER FORGET WHAT THIS IS ABOUT!!!   Please take a few minutes and watch the clip below.  All of the struggles, all of the battles, are to reach those who in their time of need have their hearts open to hear about and receive Christ’s love and come to know the forgiveness of their sins and his free gift of everlasting life!
http://www.liveprayer.com/reasons2.cfm?d=jane

***ON MEMORIAL DAY, I WANT TO DEDICATE THIS DEVOTIONAL TO ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE BRAVELY AND HONORABLY SERVED OUR NATION . TO THOSE WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, OUR NATION THANKS YOU!  TO THOSE WHO SERVED AND ARE STILL ALIVE, NEVER DOUBT HOW SIGNIFICANT GOD USED YOUR LIFE IN HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE.  TO THOSE WHO THIS DAY ARE SERVING OUR NATION IN THE ARMED FORCES, ALLOWING US TO ENJOY THE FREEDOMS WE OFTEN TAKE FOR GRANTED…..THANK YOU!!! YOU ARE REAL LIFE HEROES AND WE PRAY TODAY FOR GOD’S RICHEST BLESSINGS ON YOUR LIFE!!!  LIVEPRAYER EXISTS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICES OF THOSE WHO HAVE DEFENDED OUR NATION FROM DAY ONE!!!!!

Is evil real?  Most people want to dismiss evil as a fairy tale, but what happened in the United States on 9/11 was an example of evil. The sniper incident a few years ago that held the entire Washington, DC area in terror for 3 weeks was an example of evil.  The tens of thousands of babies aborted each day worldwide is an example of evil.  Men and women around the world who plot to kill other people for whatever reason are examples of evil. EVIL IS NOT A FANTASY…IT IS REAL…IT IS A SAD PART OF THE HUMAN
EXISTENCE!!!

First, understand that God is NOT the author of evil. Evil stems from the rebellious hearts of man. Man has to make choices throughout each day, to either obey God, or rebel against Him.  Evil is a manifestation of that rebellion. Those who choose to follow God, make choices that build people up, advance the cause of God on this earth, are positive.  Those who choose to reject God, make choices that destroy people, oppose the plan of God for this world, and are negative. To be blunt, those who follow God are good, those who choose to reject God are evil.  This may sound harsh, but evil can ONLY come from those who are in rebellion to, and reject God!

Satan is the embodiment of evil.  He rejected God and was cast out of Heaven, and his entire purpose is to oppose the work of God.  Satan is the poster boy for rebellion against God…for evil!  The simple fact is that any time that you rebel against God in your life, any time that you reject His way, you contribute to the evil that is in this world.  Evil ONLY EXISTS because of the rebellious hearts of man.  As hard as this may be to accept, the fact is, every time that you reject God, every time that you choose to ignore God, YOU ARE SIDING WITH SATAN AND ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THE EVIL THAT IS IN THIS WORLD!

I love you and care about you so much.  The motivation for this Devotional today was the way our society has tried to down play the existence of evil in our world.  The way our society tries to make every excuse in the book to call evil anything but what it truly is….EVIL!  The point I want you to understand today is that every time that you rebel against God, every time that you choose to reject God and not follow His way, YOU are contributing to the evil that is in this world.

I pray today that you keep your heart open to the Lord, and His guiding influence in your life.  This is why I emphasize so often how important it is to read the Bible each day, since THAT is how we better understand exactly what God expects from us, how He has asked us to live our lives. That way, we can follow Him in all of our choices, and we don’t have to be in rebellion.  We don’t have to contribute to the evil that already is rampant in our world today.

The good news is this.  The Bible tells us that in the end, God will wipe out ALL evil from this world.  It will no longer be part of this existence. But until this time, we have a responsibility as His children to not only fight against the evil that exists, but to not contribute to it through the choices that we make each day.  God is greater than evil, and one day, very soon, He will wipe evil away!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

The Lessons Of American Idol

The lessons of American Idol.  The 6th season of the highest-rated program
on TV today (over 40 million viewers), concluded last Wednesday night with
17-year-old Jordin Sparks being  voted as the latest American Idol.  To Fox
TV’s credit, Idol is actually one of the more watchable programs on
television for families.  It is a refreshing throwback to some of the old
talent programs that have always been popular since the inception of
television.  The real “hook” of Idol is that it is the viewers who vote to
ultimately choose who the winner is.  There are actually several interesting
spiritual lessons from American Idol that I want to share with you today.

The first spiritual lesson is how people will chase after the temporary
things of this world with all they have, yet put very little time, effort,
or sacrifice in pursuing the eternal things of God.  At the beginning of
each season of American Idol, auditions are held in 6 or 7 major cities.
People come from all over and will line up for days, camping out, braving
the weather, just to be able to audition for an opportunity to get a “golden
ticket” to go to California and the next round of the competition.  It is
amazing to hear the stories of those who sacrificed to come to the audition,
taking buses for days, using their last dollar to get there, leaving their
families and jobs behind to try and become the next American Idol.

Of course, the ultimate goal of each person who auditions is to become an
overnight superstar in the music industry, enjoying all of the fame and
fortune that goes along with success in that business.  It is interesting to
watch thousands and thousands of people give all they have for a shot at
becoming a famous singer.  Idol is a great example of how people will
sacrifice everything for the temporary things this world has to offer.  My
friend, whatever fame you may acquire, whatever fortune you may amass, all
becomes meaningless the second you die.  When you stand before God He is not
gong to be impressed you became an American Idol, or that you sold 50
million records, or that you won 5 Grammys, or that you lived in a 5 million
dollar home, or that you were worth millions of dollars.  No, the only thing
that God is going to be interested in and impressed by is your relationship
with His Son Jesus Christ!

A sad lesson from American Idol is the incredible lengths most people will
go to, to chase the temporary things of this world, while very few people
will make those same sacrifices to pursue the eternal things of God.

Another great lesson from American Idol is how so many people live their
lives through the lives of others.  Watching the program to see how your
favorite does, watching for the entertainment value is fine.  What I am
talking about are people who live vicariously though those on the program
whether it is the host Ryan Seacrest, the judges, or the contestants.  It is
amazing to me how may people live their lives through the lives of others
whether it be Hollywood actors, people in the music business, sports stars,
TV personalities, politicians, people they know, and even people in the
ministry.

God gave each of us this wonderful gift of life.  We are each unique and
special.  You need to live your life instead of wasting it by living through
someone else’s.  When you do that, you are cheating yourself out of this
precious gift God has given you.  A great lesson from American Idol is to
not get caught up living your life through someone else’s, LIVE YOUR OWN
LIFE!

The other great lesson from American Idol is that man has the creativity and
ability to create vehicles to reach the masses with a message.  I am fully
aware that the motivation behind American Idol is money, large amounts of
money.  That is the motivation and driving force for creating this program
that is reaching the masses.  I contend that if we can use our creativity
and ingenuity to create a vehicle to reach the masses for money, how much
more should we be using that same creativity and ingenuity to reach the
masses for Christ!  Not only is it something we have been commanded to do by
our Lord, it should be the desire of every Believer to reach this lost world
we live in with the Truth of God’s Word and the hope we have in Jesus
Christ!

Another great lesson from American Idol is that man knows no bounds when it
comes to creating something from nothing that can reach the masses so he can
make a profit.  I submit to you today, those who know the Lord should be
challenged that if men of the world can create vehicles to reach the masses
simply to make money, how much more motivated should men of God be to reach
the masses to bring them the Gospel of Jesus Christ!!!

I love you and care about you so much.  Tens of millions of people have
watched and voted and gotten caught up in Idolmania these past few months.
It is over for another season as Jordin is the newest
American Idol.  I pray today that for the people who sacrifice and give
everything they have for a shot at the temporary fame and fortune of this
life, they will sacrifice and give everything they have for the eternal
rewards of Heaven.  I pray today that for those who live their lives through
others, they will begin to live their own unique and special lives.  I pray
today that instead of using the incredible gifts and creativity and
ingenuity to reach the masses for a few dollars, men will use those same
gifts and creativity and ingenuity to reach the masses for Jesus.

I’m encouraged  by a program like American Idol.  It proves people will
sacrifice for the things of this world, now we need to help them see how
much better it is to sacrifice for the things of God.  It proves that people
want to live better lives, now we need to help them see that they are
special and unique can have a better life if they will follow the Lord.  It
proves that men can create unique vehicles to reach the masses for money,
now we need to challenge men to create unique vehicles to reach the masses
for the Lord.  May we learn these lessons from American Idol and make an
impact with our lives for Christ!

We are on the verge of seeing Liveprayer become a major force in this nation
and world in bringing God’s Truth to the lost and hurting masses, and as a
vehicle to lead literally millions of people to faith in Jesus Christ.  Now
is the time, this is the moment, and God is calling YOU to help me make a
difference in this world by letting Him use your life and all He has
entrusted you with to reach those who need Christ’s hope and build His
Kingdom!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,.

***I KNOW YOU ARE BUSY, BUT THIS MESSAGE TODAY IS ONE YOU NEED TO TAKE THE
TIME AND EFFORT TO READ AND PRAY OVER.  IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
MESSAGES I HAVE EVER WRITTEN ON THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR NATION.  GOD
CALLS EACH OF HIS CHILDREN TO SERVE HIM.  AS YOU READ THESE WORDS TODAY,
OPEN YOUR HEART TO HOW GOD CAN USE YOU TO HELP BRING THIS NATION BACK TO
GOD, BIBLICAL TRUTH, AND FAITH IN  HIS SON JESUS CHRIST!

The spiritual state of the United States on May 26, 2007.  I am fully aware
that as you read this today, your mind is in many different places. You are
preparing for or may even be at work.  You have whatever pressing issues
there are in your life at this moment which are weighing on you.  Actually,
when you think about it, just dealing with your life and those in your
immediate family each day can be a huge challenge.  While you try to stay
informed, aware of what is going on in the world around you, most of the
time it is all you can do to simply live your own life.  I totally
understand that, and that is why today I want to share with you some of my
insights to help you understand what the real spiritual condition of the
United States is at this very moment.

Because of the unique work God has called me to these nearly 8 years now, I
am literally involved in hundreds of people’s lives every single day.
Between Liveprayer.com and the TV ministry, I hear every day from over
40,000 people.  While I can’t deal with each person individually, I do get
good reporting every day what those 40,000 people are going through.  The
reason I still to this day personally handle anywhere from 250-300 emails at
random is so that I never lose sight of what Liveprayer is about, helping
people in their time of need, and keep very focused on what is really going
on in this world so I can effectively minister to your life each day

I am dealing on a daily basis with people from 14 to 94, men and women,
people who have incredible wealth and those who have nothing at all, those
from every walk of life, blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics, American-Indian,
and folks from every ethnic background you can name.  Over 20% of the people
we reach each day at Liveprayer.com are outside the United States, so each
day I am also dealing with people living in different countries who face the
same problems those here in the US do, but with different cultural issues
that have to be factored in.

It is in dealing with this vast and wide array of different people in every
kind of situation you can imagine, and trust me, many you could never
imagine, each day for nearly 8 years now that I share these insights with
you.
Since I deal with many of these issues on a regular basis, I don’t think the
issues themselves will shock you, however, I really doubt most people
totally understand the degree of spiritual decay that we are seeing month
after month in the United States.  I also doubt most people really
understand how void of God and Biblical Truth this nation really is.  That
void grows daily as does the hostility to those who do believe in God,
Biblical Truth, and have faith in Jesus Christ.

Let me tell you what you may find most alarming.  I laugh every time I hear
Barna or any type of poll or study that says 80% of people in the United
States believe in God, or go to church, or identify themselves as
Christians.  As you know, you can make a poll or study say about anything
you want it to say.  Here is the raw truth.  Most everyone agrees there is a
God or some sort of Supreme Being.  When you weed out the non-existent false
gods like allah and the rest and are only talking about the God of the
Bible, you are now at under 50% of the population that believe in the one
true God of the Bible.

When you talk about those who go to church and break it down to those who
regularly attend a Bible-teaching, Bible-believing church where faith in
Jesus Christ alone is the only way to be saved, now you are dealing with
less than 20% of the population.  When you weed out those who go to Mosques,
Temples, or are part of cults like the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, you
are left with less than 20% of the population who regularly go to a Bible
teaching, believing church.

However, the most alarming issue that I have found in nearly 2 decades of
ministry are those who identify themselves as “Christians.”  Let me say up
front that being a Christian means you have made the conscious decision to
ask God to forgive you of your sins and by faith ask Jesus Christ into your
heart and life.  You have made the conscious choice to give your life to
Christ.  THAT is what makes you a Christian.  The fact your mom and dad are
a Christian doesn’t make you one.  You don’t become a Christian by birth!
Going to church doesn’t make you a  Christian.  The pews of churches across
the nation are FULL of people every Sunday who are not saved, but think they
are because they sit in that pew every Sunday.  Just because you were
“baptized” as a baby doesn’t make you a Christian.  Sprinkling water on a
baby’s head doesn’t save them!

THE ONLY WAY YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN IS BY MAKING THE DECISION TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR HEART AND LIFE BY FAITH!

Having said that, let me take this whole “I’m a Christian” conversation to
the next level, since this is what I deal with every day here at
Liveprayer.com and on the TV program.  I get people who identify themselves
as “Christians” every day telling me that there is nothing wrong with
homosexuality, nothing wrong with abortion, that people of other faiths will
be in Heaven!  If you are a Christian, that means you are a follower of
Jesus Christ and have surrendered your heart and life to Him.  It is no
longer your life.  It also means that you BELIEVE THE BIBLE!  The Bible is
God’s inspired, inerrant Word, representing Absolute Truth and our final
authority in all matters.  It is the Book GOD WROTE!  It is inconsistent to
say, “I am a Christian but I do not believe what the Bible says.”

The reason people who call themselves Christians deny the Bible is the same
reason  any lost person denies the Bible.  It condemns their choices and
holds them accountable for their actions.  People hate being held
accountable, and that is what the Bible does.  So it is easier to just
dismiss the Bible with the thousands of different reasons people come up
with to try and make the case it is not really God’s Word.  Well, I am
sorry, you can’t be a Christian and deny the Bible!  Jesus said you can’t
serve two masters.  You need to decide if you belong to Christ or not.  If
you do, you need to follow His Word, not live in rebellion to it.  That
doesn’t mean we don’t sin or are perfect.  It does mean we do our best to
obey the Lord since Jesus said, “if you love me you will obey me!”

Let me give you a quick summary of some of my other observations.  The drive
by those in the homosexual community to make their deviant choice of sex
socially acceptable is working.  The VAST majority of people in this nation
do not see anything wrong with this choice of sex.  Most alarming is the
great job the pro-homosexual community has done in brainwashing kids that
this is a perfectly acceptable way to live.  Well over 80% of the young
adults and school-age children in this nation see nothing wrong with
homosexuality.  THIS INCLUDES KIDS WHO ARE IN CHURCH AND REGULARLY ATTEND
YOUTH GROUPS!  As I told you years ago, it will be very soon labeled “hate
speech” in this nation to speak out against homosexuality, even from the
Bible.  That is already the case in Canada and many European countries.
Still don’t believe how ingrained this perversion has become?  WE ARE NOW
EVEN DEBATING WHAT MARRIAGE IS!

Killing babies via abortion is considered by the vast majority of people to
be a choice left up to a woman.  Whatever chance to see this practice of
infanticide stopped has passed us by these last 6 years.  We will now
continue to legally slaughter over 4,000 babies a day in this nation until
God finally decides to bring down His wrath on us.  I still firmly believe
it will be this one issue which will ultimately bring God’s judgment on the
United States.  The majority of the people in this nation see nothing wrong
with abortion and not only accept it, but will fight for it to continue.

Sex outside of God’s intended plan for it to enjoyed by a man and woman in
the bonds of marriage is so ingrained in our culture now, people who decide
to follow God’s plan represent a SMALL FRACTION of society, EVEN IN THE
CHURCH!  Sex outside of marriage, adultery, and every kind of perverted form
of sex is totally out of control in our nation.  Living together is
“normal.”  Sadly, sexual sin is just as big of a problem with people in the
church since the church really has little impact on our culture any longer
or even in the lives of those who attend.  Most churches have turned into
little more than entertainment venues, and have quit preaching holiness and
righteousness and judgment so they won’t “offend” anyone.  Now it is all
smiles, enjoy the show, drop in your dollar, and see you next week.
Meanwhile, lives are being destroyed daily by those who commit sexual sins.

Speaking of the church, the biggest needs in the church are having an altar
call at the end of every service, getting back to preaching the
unadulterated Truth of God’s Word with boldness, and to provide the people
free counseling.  Many churches NEVER have an invitation for people to
accept the Lord.  NEVER!  There are churches today that are so far away from
the Bible, they don’t even believe it is God’s Word and condone blatant
since like homosexuality and abortion.  People who are coming to faith in
Christ in 2007 have many more problems, issues, and baggage in their lives
than people who came to Christ even 20 years ago.  Churches need to help
their people with professional counseling to get beyond their past lives so
they can be free to live in victory and grow in their faith to lead
productive Christian lives.

Drug use (street drugs and abusing prescription medication) and alcohol
consumption are both at all time highs.  As people deal with the problems in
their lives, tens of millions daily look to these forms of “escape.”
Gambling and porn continue to grow and are destroying millions of lives each
year.  Other addictions like the abuse of food and shopping are on a steep
rise.  Again, these are simply ways people have found to try and escape from
life’s problems rather than dealing with them.  Of course in the end, not
only do they still have their original problems, they now have even greater
problems due to their bondage to these different forms of escape.

So in the face of all of this, where is the hope?  JESUS CHRIST!  I liken this time in our nation’s history to many of the times we read about in the Old Testament when the children of Israel began to slowly turn away from God and to this world.  Over time, they drifted further and further from God until they were ultimately living in all out rebellion to Him and to His Truth.  It was during this time of great apostasy that God would eventually bring down His wrath on Israel.  I clearly see that same scenario unfolding
here in the United States.

We are living in the last days, Jesus is coming very soon and the last chapters of human history are about to unfold.  I believe prior to that happening, this nation will be judged rather harshly for our rebellion to God.  What form that judgment takes I can’t tell you, but I do know God will not be mocked.  However, what I also see is an unparalleled time in human history to bring people to faith in Jesus Christ.  It was during God’s judgment on Israel that many turned back to the faith of their fathers, and I see that happening here in the United States.

I see the difficult days ahead being a catalyst to help many come back to the God of the Bible, His Truth, and faith in Jesus Christ.  The bad news is this nation is living in open rebellion to God our Creator and His Truth. The good news is that it is in this time of rebellion, as lives are being destroyed, as God takes His hand of blessings off our land, there is a great opportunity to bring people the one true hope there is, faith in Jesus
Christ!  God has raised up Liveprayer at this moment in human history to be part of bringing in that last great harvest of souls.  God has raised YOU up at this time for that same reason!

I love you and care about you so much!  It pains me to bring you a word like the one today, but I have to be honest with you.  I can’t tell you everything is great when it isn’t.  I deal every day with the real lives of people who have turned away from God or never knew him at all, and the problems and consequences they live with due to their rebellion.  I can tell you this from being on the front lines 7 days a week. Yes, there is GREAT
hostility to those who preach the Word of God since those who choose to live in rebellion to the Bible don’t want to be confronted with their sin. However, there are many hurting and broken lives out there, more each day, who simply want answers, who simply are looking for hope.  That is why I have given my life to the preaching of the Gospel!

That is also why I have been challenging you for the last 2 years now about the Liveprayer TV program and the work here at Liveprayer.com.  We are sitting on two of the most powerful communication vehicles man has ever known to reach the masses, the Internet, and a “live” hour- long TV program 5 nights a week on a major secular TV network that is able to reach 90 million of the 100 million TV households in this nation.  WE HAVE THE TOOLS TO REACH THE LOST AND HURTING MASSES AND I AM WILLING TO LITERALLY GIVE MY LIFE TO GO ON THE FRONT LINES DAY AFTER DAY TO BOLDLY PROCLAIM THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD, CALLING PEOPLE AND THIS NATION TO REPENTANCE, AND WITHOUT COMPROMISE TELL PEOPLE THEIR ONLY HOPE IS A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
CHRIST!

My friend, we are in a WAR for the soul of this nation and its people.  I will keep putting my life out there, declaring God’s Truth and the hope we have in Christ, but I need friends like you to keep me out there on the front lines. The Liveprayer TV program is the ONLY program on secular television that is bringing a Biblical worldview to the
issues of this world and people’s lives.  Each night, it is making an eternal difference in the lives of people and in the spiritual direction of this country.

Sadly, I see the spiritual state of this nation every day and the damaged and destroyed lives of so many.  God has called me to reach this nation and to bring His Truth and hope to the lost and hurting.  I am doing everything I can to do that, but need you to help me.  When our lives are over, the only thing that will matter is our relationship with Jesus and the only lasting legacy we leave behind are those lives we touched for the Lord along
our journey.  All throughout human history, there have been those heroes of the faith who sold out and laid it all on the line for the Gospel.  I am taking my stand for Jesus and am asking you today to stand with me as together, we lead our nation back to God’s Truth and the lost and hurting to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

Thank you and God bless you!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Exodus 13:3 Remember That God Is The Source Of Your Freedom

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

 Today’s Broadcast How to Pray for Our Daily Bread Listen Online|Podcast

BIBLE MEDITATION: “And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the Lord brought you out from this place.” Exodus 13:3

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Each year, Americans remember those brave-hearted souls who fought and gave their lives so that you and I would have the rights and privileges of living in a free country. Remembering is important. In fact, God instructs His people on many occasions in the Old Testament to remember from whence they came and to remember His providence. It is by the mighty hand of God that we are saved, we are protected, and we are free to live in the Land of the Brave. Never take that freedom for granted, my friend. It is a precious commodity for which the world hungers, and it is a powerful charge for you and I to protect.

ACTION POINT: Do you know of someone in your life who has served in the armed forces of this country? Make it a point this week to express to them your gratitude for their service.   Visit Love Worth Finding Ministries

How To REALLY Support The Troops

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

See original link here from The In Touch Ministry.

The challenge

Thousands of U.S. troops are now stationed around the world. Far from their families, friends, and churches, they have a tremendous need for encouragement and truth from the Scriptures. But their missions often carry them far from a chapel and chaplain.

Understanding the need for spiritual instruction that men and women in combat areas have, Dr. Charles Stanley said, “In Touch wants to help military chaplains share the love of Jesus with U.S. soldiers. Today’s technology is providing amazing ways to share the gospel with people around the world.”

Our response

This Memorial Day, In Touch Ministries launches a project to put quality biblical teaching in the hands of American troops.

The In Touch Ministries Messenger is a nearly indestructible solar-powered audio device designed specifically for the American soldier. It holds more than 60 hours of messages from the ministry of Dr. Charles Stanley, including these powerful series:

  • Facing Life’s Obstacles
  • Living the Extraordinary Life
  • The Ways of God
  • How to Release Your Burdens
  • Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit

The need is great, and the Messenger wil be a vital tool to provide spiritual nourishment to members of the U.S. military. Its lightweight construction, earphone jack, and solar panels for recharging make it the ideal audio player for troops in the field. “A lot of soldiers over here, they don’t have time to actually go to church or go to Bible study,” says Sergeant First Class Charolette Harvey, who’s currently serving in Iraq. “But if they have something like [the Messenger], they’d be able to study and listen to it even on their jobs.”

How you can help

In Touch Ministries is committed to delivering 20,000 Messengers to U.S. troops in August 2007. This initiative is powered by Dr. Stanley’s desire to share the Word of God with miiltary men and women everywhere. But its level of success will be a direct result of the support we receive from In Touch partners.

Production of these innovative audio players will begin Memorial Day, and we plan to deliver them to troops through a network of Christian organizations and military chaplains. You can help send teaching from the Word of God to U.S. troops. Click here to support In Touch and the Messenger project today.*

I Thessalonians 5:2 Jesus Christ Shall Return Like A Thief In The Night!

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

 Today’s Broadcast How to Run Like a Champion Listen Online|Podcast 

BIBLE MEDITATION: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” 1 Thessalonians 5:2

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: There was a man who went shopping and left his car and house keys in the ignition. When he returned, his car was gone. The next morning he discovered his car in the driveway with a note that said, “I was in an emergency. I’m very sorry. I needed your car. Here are two tickets for the Dallas Cowboys game.” The man went in and told his wife, “You won’t believe this! There’s our car, and look! We’ve got tickets to a Dallas Cowboys game!” They went to the game, and when they came home, their house had been cleaned out! That’s how the Lord Jesus Christ is going to come — as a thief in the night.

ACTION POINT: How would you live your life differently today if you knew that Jesus was coming back in 24 hours? Visit Love Worth Finding Ministries

II Peter 3:9 Why Hasn’t Jesus Christ Returned Yet?

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

 Today’s Broadcast How to Run Like a Champion Listen Online|Podcast

BIBLE MEDITATION: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” II Peter 3:9

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Have you ever wondered why Jesus has not yet returned? I’ll tell you why — because our Lord is waiting on people to be saved. He’s waiting on your family member, your neighbor, your co-worker, or maybe you, but one of these days soon, and very soon perhaps, Jesus will come. You see, it is the mercy of God that holds back the Second Coming of Jesus, but the justice of God and the judgment of God require that one day He will come. Even now, the raging waters of God’s wrath are furiously pounding against the dam of His mercy. And one of these days, the dam of God’s mercy will give way to God’s judgment, and the day of the Lord will come. Our Lord is coming!

ACTION POINT: Does the Lord’s return make your heart beat fast because you anticipate His coming or dread His coming?  Visit Love Worth Finding Ministries

Psalm 119:165 The Bible Promises You Great Peace

Posted by Job on May 28, 2007

Great peace have they [O Lord] who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. NIV

The Bible here promises not just peace, but great peace. In the world today we tend to have a very low view of peace. If two nations are not actually fighting one another with weapons of war we say there’s peace. There may be bitterness, hatred, fear, resentment, misrepresentation, but we still speak about peace.

I want to tell you that the Bible has a much higher standard of peace. The Hebrew word for peace is shalom, it’s the greeting that is used in modern Hebrew. It really means more than just the absence of strife or war. It’s connected with a root that means completeness or wholeness. So peace is wholeness, it’s completeness. It’s not having anything lacking. It’s being a complete person. It’s living a full life. And this is promised to those who love God’s law.

You see, peace comes in our lives in abundance when we are living it out in accordance with the laws of God—His spiritual laws, His moral laws and His physical laws. When we live in accordance with the laws, then nothing makes us stumble; we are not easily offended; we are not discouraged. Opposition and difficulties do not overthrow us because something is stronger in us than anything we have to face—the outworking of God’s eternal laws. – Derek Prince
