PASTOR’s Prayer


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.

…BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT THANKFUL


Trumpets blaring doom, gloom and judgments are increasing and with even more urgency than ever before by today’s modern prophets. Augusto Perrez, Reverend Jim Bakker,  Pastor John Hagee and Past Jack Van Impe continually  remind us of God’s impending wrath and judgment coming to both America and to whole world  for the  rampant sin and evil. They warn us that soon, if we do not repent, we will enter into the tribulation as prophesied in the Book of revelations.

The signs are all there and regardless of  scoffers derision’s, God is calling his chosen people to prepare, much like Noah building an ark for his family and the animals, thus ushering in the beginning of the end of life on earth as we now know it.

Today, I asked the Lord why He would allow such a devastating catastrophe to happen to the beautiful world He created.  I wondered in sorrow as I watched a you-tube video showing the movement of a massive meteorite in its orbital path similar to scenes in the film, Deep Impact. I mourned that the movie was a little too true to life and not as far-fetched  as most movie-goers would believe. I wondered what would make God go so far as to allow earth to be completely ripped apart up by natural disasters. Immediately, the Lord brought to mind Romans 1:21

… They were not thankful and glorified him not as God.” Everyone, including those without TV and radio access are exposed to the magnificent and invisible attributes of creation, therefore they are without an excuse. Romans goes on to point out that women gave themselves over to that which was unnatural and men were burned with unbridled lusts for other men! Those who practiced such acts were worthy of death.

God was certainly intolerant of certain things and the book of Romans Chapter 1  gives a clear description of the actions attributes that would pervade most of society in the latter days right before His judgments. It looks to me, man has not evolved, but devolved in light of all his amazing technology, science and medical advances.

Idolatry was rampant during the old testament where the barbaric nations  worshiped idols of stone, silver, wood and the stars rather than the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Globally, technology seems to have replaced the tangible statues and figurines of  ancient times, from the five- year-old riding her bicycle with a cellphone in her other hand to  adults playing Facebook games for hours on end.

Gone are the days when youngsters would marvel at the living creatures inhabiting the neighborhood pond and woods and spending much of  their daylight hours outdoors. Nowadays, the seats are all occupied in the children section of the library.  Kids are fighting gladiator “Terminators” and “Predators” on their computers.

An article was recently published in a Philadelphia magazine, “The Dumbing Down of our Kids.”  Indeed our youth are becoming brain-dead socially and spiritually and are sorely lacking all the social and creative skills their parents were so endowed with.

With the alarming rise in crime, theft and traffic safety, much of society has lost their ability to discern with their a spiritual compass.

We are still here, though, thank the Lord, but our time is running out. Woe to humanity. God’s cup is bubbling and seething violently, ready to overflow it into judgment and wrath. This brew has been violently boiling for ages and yet God has graciously looked away, hoping that man will turn away from his depravity.

Even secular Hollywood filmmakers are taking seriously the world’s impending destruction Deep Impact, Armageddon and the Book of Eli having huge box-office success. People flock to be shaken up and we should take heed for these depictions are not so far from reality.  May the world be informed that there is a hope for the world, God’s spirit-filled, spirit-led people, the Bride of Christ. We are the power holding back the tsunami tides of evil utterly devouring what’s left of our once proud and glorious nation.

My brothers and sisters in Christ,  let us wake up and show the world what God has blessed us with. Let the world see our good works of charity and compassion, unselfishness and generosity. We must be salt and light, opposing those things that are wrong, not turning a passive shoulder and accepting it.  The old testament prophets said people called evil good and good evil.

Now is the acceptable time of salvation, Jesus Christ and His legacy of love. We have little time, my brethren before the trumpets blow and the death angels will come for their prey.  Go out and make fishers of men. Share the  Good News of Jesus Christ with the world before millions are  swiftly swept up beneath the Tsunamis or blown up by volcanoes into the abyss of their eternal destiny!

GIANTS WILL FALL


He who has an ear…let him hear. This message is for the church, the Bride of Christ whom God has already supplied all ability, protection and provision.

Our media has portrayed great worldwide upheaval. Fear engulfs even God’s people when they allow themselves to be overwhelmed by  work, house  obligations and physical challenges.  I’m wont to fall prey to fear pangs, but despite all the myriad tangible and spiritual assaults, Abba Yahweh has placed us in the world to be salt and light.  His great promises and the Biblical testimonies of our great patriarchs and matriarchs prove His word. Several of my favorites are Joseph, Moses, Elijah and David. In times of the weight of fear and anxiety, I reread shepherd David’s account of his great victory against behemoth Goliath.

The Philistines camped against the Israelite sending their giant, Goliath to intimidate and mock.

“Why have you come out in line for battle? ” he chided. “Choose a man for yourself and let him come down to me. I defy the armies  of Israel this day. ”

Saul and the whole Israelite armies trembled. Imagine the atmosphere of that scenario. After all the great miracle God did for the Israelite after they left Pharaoh’s captivity, they forgot and let fear take them over.  Meanwhile,  David’s father, Jesse had sent David down to bring food to his older brothers  enlisted in the army. David heard the giant Philistine’s boasts as he presented himself to the Israeli  commanders day after day.

Surveying the Giant’s audacity, David asked incredulously,   “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should dare to defy the armies of the living God?!”

David’s words were reported to Saul and Saul  called for him. As the story goes, David killed Goliath with only his stone and slingshot. I don’t believe David had an inkling of doubt that he would be unable to take down such a large foe. David walked in full confidence and authority in God’s ability to overcome Israels’ enemy.

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind, a mind to oppose all fears, doubts and failure and the church must walk in that same power, confidence and authority as young David did so long ago. God’s  empowerment has not changed despite some Christian denominations who believe that  miracles were for that time. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and  time and space are no limitations to the great I AM!

Time and time again, the Bible depicts with great authority, the victories our Biblical forefather’s tasted. Moses speech was an impediment to him, but he accepted the challenge God set before him to lead the Israelite s from their captivity.  Though Moses, foe, Pharaoh was obstinate, Moses continued in obedience despite the calamity and suffering that came against the Egyptians.

Most of the church today looks on and bemoans the chaos and disaster occurring on our planet  for the most part, we passive  onlookers, rather than offensive warriors opposing Satan’s  global assaults. We should be like David, boldly coming against our uncircumcised infidel opponents with an authority and certainty that God’s goodness, restoration and salvation shall overcome and prevail! I see the church acquiescing and cowering regarding demonically orchestrated events.

Psalm 91:7 says that a thousand shall fall, ten thousand at your right hand, yet it shall not come near you.

Remember when the deadly plagues  fell upon the Egyptians because Pharaoh would not let the people go. The plagues continued to come. The final and most devastating was the death of the first-born. But God’s divine protection was upon His people for he provided a covering, the blood that was to be painted on the door lintels. Today, Jesus blood is the protection as we apply it to all dangerous situations…if we cover our dwellings with it. Many of God’s people are ignorant and perish because they are not aware of His eternal providence and provision.

Again and again, we hear of people ask, “Why did God allow the World Trade Center buildings to be attacked?” Why did God allow the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan.” Well, duh…did any of us plead the blood of Jesus  over these?

I am studying an amazing book on Psalm 91, authored by Peggy Joyce Ruth. She teaches verse by verse the  supernatural and all-encompassing protection as well as  testimonies of countless people of faith who evaded a myriad of dangerous circumstances through standing on Psalm 91’s promises. The Bride of Christ and the Jews can enjoy this very same blessing today if they receive and believe.

Our God is also a God of second chances and occasional changes His mind in cases of true repentance and weeping.  King Hezekiah is my favorite example of such a trust.  He had fallen to a serious illness and the prophet Isaiah told him to set his house in order for he would not recover  King Hezekiah could not accept this and set his eyes on God, praying that God would allow him to live. God was so moved by his tears and prayer that He added 15 years to his life and also saved the city from the  King of Assyria! God does hear our faith-filled and powerful prayers and I know it is within every child of God to walk in God’s power and authority.

god is lifting me to a new place of faith and I’ve made it a bedtime habit lately to set my thoughts and worship on my gracious  Abba Yahweh who’s provided a warm bed, food, clothing, a wonderful husband and great country. I plead the blood of Jesus over America, Israel, the awakening of the church, protection from demonic nuclear assaults, plague, EMP blasts and a host of other catastrophes.

I remember years ago moaning to my old pastor about all the evils of the  world.  I was offended by his  response ,”Don’t curse the darkness. Light a candle.” Today I see why he said it. To often we accept all prophecies or even the magnitude of them as written in stone, but our God is gracious even in judgment. He loves His people and doesn’t want one person to perish without Him.  If we repent and turn away, He wants to heal our land. When will we get it?

If every child of God wept in anguish over our lost generation and spiritual darkness, God will help us to turn the Titanic around! It is still not too late, but we have little time. Let the church start praying and weeping with the same  heart as pastor  David Wilkerson of Manhattan Church less events would destroy.  There is an increasing joy and confidence each day as I pray with other brothers and sisters in God’s power and authority against the principalities of darkness. .

I encourage you, my friend to start reading and applying God’s great provision and see what He will make of you!
