It’s been a tough year with all the negative reports from TV pastor prophets who keep reminding us, “Get Ready.”
God’s cup is about overflowing. Some ask, “get ready for what?”
Many are excited about the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan campaign. Some believe that a new president will bring about the change they are seeking for our nation. I know something BIG and serious is soon to happen. I’ve not slept well and waking up in the wee hours of the night, I find myself praying…and praying hard!
Often, I ask God, “How did it get so bad?” My Facebook friends with prophetic leanings continually post urgent reports from pastors/prophets. Judgement is coming. Stay alert. Have your lamps filled with oil. God is about to explode with great glory to his Bride. Am I missing something here?
God finally answered my question about why and how this nation got so bad. I went to the book of Kings in the Bible.
The prophet Elijah confronted King Ahab…uninvited! 1 Kings 18. John the Baptist confronted King Herod about marrying his brother’s wife Herodias, Mark 6 17-29 When was the last time any big TV, (or otherwise) pastor confronted any of our presidents, governors or senators with,”Thus sayeth the Lord.”
When Israel strayed through idolatry and great sin, King Jehoshapat, King Ahaziah, Ezra and Nehemiah brought out the law for the people to remind them of God’s commandments and covenant. regarding America’s downfall and diminishing honor, our pastors have not been bold in standing for God’s law and truth. The line between right and wrong, good and evil have become so blurred few are sure of what truly is right.
The Lord reveals Himself to those who diligently seek Him and who love His law. I love righteousness, justice and mercy. Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the world. He is near to the brokenhearted. I am broken-hearted when I see God’s people follow the ways of the secular and worldly-minded.
I weep when God’s people do nothing about the murder of the unborn, the sex-trafficking, pornography and snuff films. Pastors are afraid to preach, “Thus sayeth the Lord” to their congregations and about how God forbade his people to commit abominations. God promises that through His son every stronghold is broken.
Many of God’s people are supporting the entitlement mindset, (welfare). Generations of families expect the government to provide their every need, but Gods word says if a man does not work, he shall not eat. If a man does not support his household, he is worse than an infidel!
Senator Marco Rubio recently talked about how the immigrants arrived at Ellis Island all with the hopes of having freedom and a better life in America. America was the refuge for people living under tyranny and for their families to live under liberty.
It is time for pastors to get back to basics…to teach their flock God’s law in the Bible. It is time for pastors to teach about civic responsibility and to vote for candidates who hold dear God’s commandments. It is time for Pastor to not be afraid to lose their 501-C-3 status and preach the word of God with boldness and courage like Elijah and John the Baptist. It is time for Pastors to stop preaching only “feel Good” sermons.
Thank God for Pastor Ray Thoman, HIA RADIO, who God called to be a watchman on the wall and to get our focus back on Holiness and repentance. Unless we, God’s people, the Church arise up and be the CITy on a Hill Jesus told us to be, we will be swept away.
Diabolical plans are unfolding. Now we must FAST pray and repent.
Abba, we uphold our pastor to you, that they would be fearless, bold and faithful to your word. May they preach the FUll Gospel. May they also URGE their flock to vote for godly candidates. May they remind us that FREEDOM is a God-given gift. May they also remind us of our Constitution and Bill of Rights for We the People. May God be merciful to His people here in America in the great and terrible Day of the Lord. Judgement is coming soon and though we walk in the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil. In Jesus name we pray,Amen.
