GOD BLESS AMERICA, (The Glory Has Departed)


The diadem our forefathers placed on America’s head has slipped. She has not obeyed God’s laws and commandments and so her glory has departed. When America’s crown completely slips from her head to the ground, no one will be able to put it back on her again.

America’s decline has continued for decades and only the righteous few have noticed.The consciences of the majority of the people have been sedated by football, “Dancing With the Stars” and other vain reality shows. Despite ominous forecasts by leading economists, it’s business as usual. The kid’s soccer games, paying the mortgage and shopping for the latest Black Friday bargains are the focus. We have become a materialistic and self-centered generation and China stands eager and ready to swoop down and conquer when our greed and apathy brings us to our knees.
The Bible tells us that “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”
Prov 14:34

Each night before I fall asleep and again just before awakening, I pray and ask God, “I there still hope for my beloved nation?” He reminds me of the destiny and covenant of His prized, beloved nation, Israel and her tumultuous history.

“Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.

For anyone who cares about America, I urge you to take heed and listen to what Rabbi Cahn and Pastor Ray Thoman say about America’s future. If America is ever to return to her former glory, she must learn the lessons the Bible tells about Israel. Israel is God’s time clock and as we stay abreast of what is happening in there, we see prophecies of old being fulfilled.

God has excellent plans for Zion, (Israel) and anyone who tries to oppress or destroy her shall be destroyed! Many scoff, doubting Israel’s destiny, but I challenge anyone to do your research and investigate the historical annals of early Israel and her kings. If you doubt God’s sovereignty over the nations of the world, study for yourself..

Whenever Israel or her sister Judah strayed away from God’s commandments, her people were invaded, captured and enslaved by the ruthless heathen nations that surrounded them. Time and time again, the people would fall into apostasy, worshiping heathen gods and even going so far as to throw their own children into the fire as a sacrifice! Again and again the people would groan under the oppression of their enemies. God would hear their cries, feel compassion and send deliverers or judges to free them.

Jehoshaphat was one such deliver, a king who didn’t deviate from God’s plan to redeem His people from bondage. 2 Chron 19 & 20 tells about how he appointed judges in the land and oversaw all the judicial matters of the kingdom with great diligence. He told them, “Consider what you do, for you judge not for man but for the LORD. He is with you in giving judgment. Now then, let the fear of the LORD be upon you. Be careful what you do, for there is no injustice with the LORD our God, or partiality or taking bribes.” King Jehoshaphat paid great scrutiny in his appointing of certain priests, Levites and leaders who would carry out God’s law in the land.

When God’s leaders are faithful in carrying out His law, He keeps His covenant and protects their kingdom. One chapter tells us of how the Moabites and the Ammonites came to attack Jehoshaphat. He became fearful upon seeing the great multitude and declared a fast throughout all Judah. he then sought the Lord with all his heart. He stood before his people and humbly beseeched God for mercy and protection. 2 Chron. 20 6-12.

God’s answer to King Jehoshaphat’s prayer was to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. They would not even have to fight the battle because it was the Lord’s The next day, the battle strategy entailed the worship singers & musicians leading and praising the Lord in the beauty of Holiness. A stupendous victory was wrought as every soldier who came to battle was smitten! Not one person came to stand against the people!

Jehoshaphat’s victory is one of the most amazing miracles of the old testament. It tells of a faithful King who was committed to keeping God’s law and God was faithful to protect and win the battle for the people.

This could happen to America if our president humbled himself before God and declared a fast for repentance. God has been so merciful to America thus far, in spite of the great and varied evils pervading this nation. God is still in the business of restoring and if we repent and turn away from our sins, He will heal our land!

Another renowned king was Josiah of the kingdom of Judah. He came to the throne at the tender age of eight. he asked his high priest, Hilkiah about the silver in God’s temple. When Hilkiah said that he found a book, King Josiah asked him to find someone to interpret it. A prophetess, Huldah, told the king and the priests what God was going to do against his people who had so far departed from His law. King Josiah was so devastated by the word that he ripped his robes. Great evil and devastation were to be their lot.

God saw Josiah’s repentant tears and tender heart and promised him that he would not see the judgement in his lifetime and go to his grave in peace. King Josiah went out with a focused agenda to thoroughly seek out and destroy every pagan shrine, temple and grove that was erected for pagan worship. He went so far as to kill the heathen priests and prophets who profaned God’s law and land. We did a mighty sweep and God blessed his reign.

Another great man, Nehemiah also had a tender heart and love for God and his people. Nehemiah was King Artaxerxes cup-bearer. He saw the wall of Jerusalem in great disrepair and God’s people were out of sorts and without a spiritual leader. He was so impassioned about the condition of the great city that the King noticed and asked him why he was so sad. Nehemiah shared his burden with the king and found favor. He was allowed to take leave and supervise the rebuilding of the walls and temple. There was great celebration as the law was read to the people.

Both Nehemiah and his predecessor, Ezra, discovered that God’s special people had erred by compromising and conforming to pagan influences. Even the priests profaned their sacred duties in the temple and some even took wives from their heathen neighbors. This could not be because God called them to be a royal priesthood and a Holy nation. The men were to take wives from their own tribes. Nehemiah and Ezra’s obedience in teaching the law to the people ended with restoration and celebration. This is what it will take for America to also be restored to her former glory, getting back to the basics, the ten commandments.

One of the most devastating times in Israel was when the ark was stolen by the Philistines during war. Israel’s best soldiers were slaughtered. At the time Eli, was the head priest and he had two sons, who were evil. Eli had been lax in the upbringing of his sons and they were notorious for disrespecting the sacred rituals of the priesthood.

That fateful day, a young messenger came running to give Eli the report of the battle. Eli was an obese man and sitting in a chair when he heard the sordid news. He was so shocked that he fell back, broke his neck and died. Meanwhile, his daughter-in-law was pregnant and upon hearing the news of the death of her husband, gave birth. The labor pains came over her quickly and she bore a son, whom she immediately named Ichabod, (The glory has departed). Immediately after giving birth, she died.

The kidnapping of the Ark was a great disgrace, comparable to our attack on our nation on September 11. Like Eli and his daughter-in-law, many turned numb with shock. But, we should never be surprised at national calamity if we have also departed from God’s ways. America cannot continue on the path she’s on without God judging her great depravity. We can’t expect to thrive or continue receiving His protection from terrorism. Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as Nineveh, have already shown us the fruit of sin.

The glory has just about departed from America. Judgement is coming and most of us are ignoring the warning cries of the prophets. You Tube is replete with maps of what our nation will look like if our President convinces Prime Minister Netanyahu to divide God’s chosen city, Jerusalem. America will be also divided and millions will die very quickly.

Prophets and scientists predict that the new Madrid fault line will collapse and the Mississippi river will flood hundreds of miles and destroy land and property in every direction. Millions will die suddenly and there will be billions of dollars in damage. Life as we know it will change in an instant. I shudder at the thought of many who ignore or downright scoff at the predictions of this geological cataclysm that will occur at the New Madrid fault collapse.

Our president answers casually when addressing our serious deficits and national crisis, but what will touch God’s heart is a reverential and humble bequest to almighty God. God wants to see His acknowledgement of His sovereignty over America’s affairs and people. Nehemiah s’ prayer would be a good example of beseeching God Almighty for mercy.

“Then I said: “O LORD, God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his commands, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s house, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.”

Daniel’s prayer to God is very similar:

“I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.

The baton of Righteousness and patriotism have been passed on to two young senators, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. Their energy and passion may persuade the public to rethink what is happening in the oval office. Dr Benjamin Carson has also addressed spiritual and national issues and presented solutions! These are the types of men we need to help transform our nation. These man boldly confront and that is the man we need like Elijah, the prophet who confronted King Ahab. We must not stifle the voices of truth with political correctness. Dr Carson repeatedly said it was a bad thing.

We must bless God. We must obey His laws. We must vote into office godly men who defend our constitution and who hold dear the values that made America the great nation that it was called to be by God Almighty..

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chron 7:14

LIFT UP HOLY HANDS


Letter to the End Time Bride of Christ.
LIFT UP HOLY HANDS

Greetings BELOVED, in the name of the Jehovah and Yeshua Hamshia!

I pray you are seeking His presence more and more each day. Because of the late hour, I write this most urgent letter to you. Husband Mark and I’ve been closely watching the spiritual, social and political landscape, especially what is occurring in Israel and the middle east. We are at the precipice of decision and Abba God compels us to draw closer. He calls some of us to mobilize his saints for the great spiritual battle ahead. We are less than three weeks to the election and the saints pray and intercede with trepidation.

I’ve had many sleepless nights weeping and praying on behalf of our America, my brethren, (The Bride/The Elect) and unsaved loved ones. Jesus seeks a bride without spot or wrinkle and carrying lamps filled with oil, (the Holy Ghost). Let us not be casual about our love walks. Let us not be empty handed and wearing wrinkled or stained garments for we shall not sit with him at the banquet table.

St. Paul tells us to lift up Holy hands, without wrath or doubting. God is looking for a people who hungry for Him and who want more than anything to please Him. I keep hearing “Come out from among them…and be ye separate” The closer I get to my Abba father, the less drawn I am to things even from things I loved from a year ago. I’m becoming more sensitive to profanity and nudity on TV, thus narrowing programs I feel comfortable watching. Music I loved and listened to last year, I have little interest in. I Pray my hands and heart are pure before Him as I lift up my hands. Are you lifting up holy hands?

Many of God’s people perish for lack of Knowledge. Secularism, (worldliness), pornography and profanity has infiltrated our senses so much that the line between holy and profane has been blurred. The way to get back to the basics of holiness is to get beck to Gods word as during the times of Jehoshaphat, Ezra and Nehemiah’s reforms. The law was presented before the people and they were transformed. This is what the churches and pastors of America need today. Many Pastors of many churches have neglected to feed their sheep the bread of life, the pure Word of God. Many accept Jesus as their Savior, but they lack knowledge of what their Lord asks them to do. Jesus said, if you love me you will keep my commandments. Are you keeping God’s commandments?

Going back to the Pentateuch and studying God’s commands will lead us back to the Holy of Holies. God has called us to be His chosen generation, royal priesthood, peculiar, (special treasure) and Holy nation. How can he walk with us and bless us if we embrace the things, habits and lifestyles of the heathen and profane? Often, we are not guilty of doing wrong, but for not doing right…when we should? Everyday, God’s people ask, what is my calling? Do what’s before you. be faithful in the small things. Make it a habit to do random acts of kindness at every and at any opportunity. There are countless things we can do each day to live a life of holiness, godliness and love.

Here is a checklist of things and areas that you may want to pray about with the Holy Ghost.

Duet 8:9 Abominations to the Lord

!. Sending children into the fire, sacrificing, killing. (abortion, child porn, child abuse/neglect).
2.Practicing any form of the occult; who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. New Age & higher forms of consciousness also apply as well as Ouija boards, Wicca/witchcraft, going to psychics and tarot cards. all these open up doors to the kingdom of darkness.

God’s people also should not go to movies, watch TV programs or read books about the occult, (such as Harry Potter) and Christian parents should not allow their children to dabble with these types of movies. Parents should also not allow their teens wear clothing or articles with demonic or death metal styles and pentagrams.

God also talks about the seven deadly sins he hates.

!. Are your eyes haughty?
2. Do you habitually lie?
3. Do you shed innocent blood?
4. Does your heart devise evil schemes.
5. Are your feet quick to run into evil
6. Are you a false witness? (do you gossip and spread lies)
7. And do you stir up conflict in the community. (Do you enjoy stirring up trouble in your home, church or community)
Disobedience

Are you Disobedient? Disobedience can seem nebulous and vague, but God has given us a conscience and if red flags go up, that’s something to investigate.

1. !Has God called you to spend more time in His presence?
2. has he called you to read and study his word more?
3. Are you spending way more time doing secular activities than praying, interceding and devotional time?

a. Computer games
b shopping sprees.
c. sports and other activities

Tithes tithes and Offerings.

Many of God’s people groan and complain about wanting a financial blessing, but they think nothing of throwing in a couple of dollars in the offering plate!The law of sowing reaping applies here. If you sow sparingly, you will reap the same.

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Mal 3:10

VOTING is also a perquisite to being blessed. If we vote for a candidate based on flesh, the color of his skin or more entitlement programs, we err. God gives us specific directions about administering justice.

Duet 16 18-20
18 “You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers in all your [a]towns which the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19 You shall not distort justice; you shall not [b]be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous. 20 Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 23 6-9

6 “Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. 7 Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.

8 “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the innocent.

9 “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.

Yahweh invites us into the Holy of Holies through His son, Yeshua, but we had better be sure we are lifting up holy hands.

“I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.” 1 Tim 2:8

God is calling His people in these end times to be an excellent people and His special treasure. We must stop living sloppy, careless lives. WE should always be accountable and scrutinize our lives before The Holy Spirit. No masterpiece was ever finished quickly. You are God’s masterpiece, His exquisite work of art. Wouldn’t you love to let Him show Himself through your life? It’s can be very hard and painful at times, but if you allow Him shape you on His potter’s wheel and you are patient, you will soon see the miracle He makes of your life!
