God Intervened


 

Whether you want to believe it or not God showed up in a huge way on November 8th, 2016.

The tables turned in America to set the stage for worldwide change and restoration.

God intervened and put Donald Trump in the White House. I believe the many praying people like myself for this country hit Heaven and God answered by changing the course of history as He has done before. This in no way means there won’t be many battles, because there will, but evil took a beating. This in no way means that America and the world can be saved through Donald Trump and his administration, but God uses us, people to get His work done. The key here is to continue praying for God’s will to be performed.

In less than a week, this President has done more good for America than all the 8 years of the Obama administration. There is no doubt President Trump means business and not as usual.

The last few years for me have been the worst in my life. However, my relationship with God has never been more solid or real. God does reach us more often in our own darkness only to shed light for us to spread.

Bringing that up, it is in reference to the many past decades of America declining into what seemed like an abyss of deception, lies and wickedness. Maybe, there is a connection.

December 31, 2016 at 3pm in the afternoon, as I was trying to recover from a nasty sinus infection I felt a “shift.” Reading of others who had had “shifts” I had been praying for one myself. All of a sudden the atmosphere seemed to change around me. It was almost tangible as if I knew that me and this country had left the old, unpleasant revolt and moved into an ambiance of Heaven.

I won’t deny the attacks have still been heavy but it’s definite a change has occurred. This may sound silly but watching the inauguration made me feel better about a lot of things. It gave me a sense of hopefulness that we are now on God’s track.

Evil has truly reared its ugly head since November 8th. I suppose the devil is very unhappy about the outcome of the election; an outcome many didn’t see coming. But I did.

When you get and remain close to God, He unveils and reveals future events, etc. It may not be in an audible tone, or written in the sky, but when you read God given words and pray, He will speak to your heart. It’s that “knowing” which highlights God stepping in and shaking things up.

In this “shift” I see America coming to the forefront of many issues that will be overturned, changed or completely removed. The following are some of those issues that will be affected but only as we keep praying for God to move to do as He sees fit.

Abortion: Planned Parenthood will be shut dow. Exodus 20: You shall not Murder.

Military: Our armed forces will be shifted into fighting mode because we have to ward off ISIS and other terrorists organizations. Reinstatements of funds and necessary tactical equipment will be renewed and enforced. Presently the Air Force is looking at 4 bases, one of which is Shaw AFB near me that will produce over 400 pilots to man the “Reaper” aircraft. It is a remotely piloted aircraft with the ability to perform missions, tasks, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, close air support, combat search and rescue, precision strike and numerous other offensive needs to ward off the enemy. Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

Tax Relief which is already being addressed will aid in restoring finances to people who
will use it wisely.
Luke 3:11: “Don’t collect any more than you are required to,” he told them.

Reinstatement of our police and first responders. Crime will not pay. 1 Peter 4:15
But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler.

Our veterans will be given the honor and care they so deserve. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” 

Public Education will be overhauled because it cannot sustain itself as it is. God will be brought back into the schools. Proverbs 22:6 “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

Oil and energy production in America and Israel will be discovered so that both countries will be independent of foreign producers. In fact I believe God will produce energy in Israel as a means of protection. Job 24:11 “Within the walls they produce oil.

Medical breakthroughs. Pharmaceutical companies will  beheld accountable and 
must allow life saving medicines in America. Isaiah 53:5 “By Jesus stripes we are healed.”


America will once again be a God given ally to Israel restoring the relationship in a greater capacity than it has been in years. Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” 

Immigration. We are not obligated to take everyone in to America. We must enforce a process to check those who wish to live here. If a person is unquestionably criminal they should not be allowed to step foot on our soil. A young man in his 20’s is much more of a risk than someone in their 80’s. Children can be brought in for adoption depending on individual situations. Romans 13:1–7 makes it abundantly clear that God expects us to obey the laws of the government. The only exception to this is when a law of the government forces us to disobey a command of God (Acts 5:29). Illegal immigration is the breaking of a government’s law. There is nothing in Scripture that contradicts the idea of a sovereign nation having immigration laws. Therefore, it is rebellion against God to unlawfully enter another country. Illegal immigration is a sin.

 Along the line of immigration is Gun control. Simply put, we have the right by the          Constitution and the Bible to protect ourselves.
Luke 11:21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. 

God is on the move. YES!

What would Jesus do? (Part 2)


 

Maybe the question should be, “What did Jesus do?”

The phrase, “God is rarely early, but never late” sums up the election results Tuesday night.

So what did Jesus do in America?

He showed up. He made an historic entrance. He shocked the world.

He invoked His presence and sent a clear message of hope.

He agitated evil. He thwarted the enemy’s attacks. He stopped many in their tracks who are now wondering, “What just happened here?”

Psalm 33:10-11 “The LORD frustrates the decisions of the nations; he nullifies the plans of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”

He forged a “bulldozer” through the middle of satan’s traps to lead this nation back to the Cross of Christ.bulldozer

He boldly made known that God is still very much on the throne and involved with our everyday lives.

In a nutshell, God intervened with a miracle and changed the course of history.

God laid it on my heart months ago Donald Trump would become President. I knew it had to be God because he was the last person I would have chosen to be the leader of the free world.

As the election results started pouring in, the devil tried to tell me I had not really heard God correctly. But I didn’t budge. I didn’t allow those thoughts to take hold even though it appeared early on numbers revealed differently.

Overnight, God performed an appointed moment.

He declared Himself King once again.

He let the world know He is in charge and the gates of Hell will not prevail.

Donald Trump is just a man, but God has anointed him to guide us back to Him. There is no other way President Trump would be President Trump now. I use that in the present tense because it is already in motion.

Many Christians still can’t believe God could, much less would use a man like Donald Trump to do His work, but God is God and he can do whatever He pleases. All you have to do is read the Bible. God explains Himself quite well.

Jennifer LeClaire, Senior Editor for Charisma Magazine posted on Facebook that Tuesday morning she awoke to God speaking to her. He told her, “A kingdom will be toppled today.” And so it was that a kingdom of darkness that has been hovering over America for decades fell in one clean sweep of God’s hand.

So where do we go from here?

After the shock wears off for many of you, go to God in prayer and He will show you. He has had this plan in the works since who knows when; He has the answers.

We must continue to pray for our nation and especially the leaders that are now in place. Pray for God’s protection, guidance, direction and that His will be done in all matters.

We must remain close to God for signs and wonders of what and how to respond to the evil that will rear its ugly head and try to fight back.

We need to pray for those who are lost in this battle of blindness and deception that God will speak to their hearts and they will heed His call.

We need to pray the church will wake up and begin to teach, and preach God’s word; not what people want to hear.

We should open our hearts to His goodness and thank Him repeatedly for His great mercy and grace in this awesome move He has made on our behalf as His children.

And most important, we must continue to repent.

We have been in the Year of Jubilee; a time when God restores, heals and gives back what the devil tried to steal which he has been doing for almost 40 years.

A new day has dawned. The atmosphere has shifted. Light has overcome the darkness.

God loves America and is not finished with us.

God wants to bless America so He can use us to bless others.

But more than anything, God wants our hearts to line up with His in a personal and intimate relationship with Him.

God is good all the time!!!!kings

What does God say about Gender/LGBT? (Part 3)


 

The phrase, “it isn’t hurting anyone else” is a lie.

Proverbs 12:22-23 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

Sin hurts everyone and filters to those around us which is why God wants us to seek Him and his goodness. He knows the outcome better than we do.

The homosexual lifestyle is a small number of people in the United States compared to the almost 320 million that live here. That doesn’t stop them from being loud.

Their agenda has reached the White House in a determined effort to rule it over everyone that these people are different. In other words everyone else is to adjust their lifestyle around them. Sorry. It doesn’t work that way.

The fact it has reached a national level wreaks of danger. When a country adopts that which is evil as good, all suffer. Why? Because no one stopped them. No one was louder. No one prevented it from occurring in the first place. Had the church done its job, America wouldn’t be fighting this battle right now.

Prayer changes people. Often it changes our circumstances but the direct connection in prayer with God is what moves Him to intervene. That’s what America must do now to end this revolt.

The devil has many blinded to the truth.

“But we should be tolerant of others.”

“We should allow people to love who they want.”

“Discrimination is wrong.”

This whiny list is getting old.

God created us in His image. He knew the “family” with a mother and father was the Godly likeness we needed to be. That hasn’t changed because God hasn’t changed.

The idea that one day we wake up and decide to be someone else, is a flat out demonic trick. It’s a selfish, all about me scheme to get attention or worse.  And like any other sin it leads to hell unless sincere repentance occurs.

The enemy is forever trying to get us to think about ourselves instead of God and our purpose. The quicker we wake up to this truth the more people will understand how wicked it is.

The church needs to unite against these evils and pray. We must stand in unison to fight the enemy. We must seek God daily and search for his heart. We must change our thinking and that can only be done through a deep, personal relationship with God.

And God chooses who? (Part 2)


 

If history has anything to do with this election it would be that former Presidents/leaders might not have been what we would have chosen.

A young philanthropist spent most of his life fighting slavery. His political career in the English Parliament led to the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833. He died 3 days after the act was passed.wilber

Herbert Hoover – Had been Secretary of Commerce, but never held an elected position before the presidency.

Dwight Eisenhower – Eisenhower was active duty military until May 1952, five months before the election.

Sir Winston Churchill rallied the British people during WWII leading the country to victory. While trying to get into the British Royal Military College he failed the entrance exam 3 times. Hardly a resume for a Prime Minister.

Who would believe a research chemist would ever become the longest running Prime Minister of England much less the only female? Margaret Thatcher holds that title.

And then of course the actor who became President was frowned upon for even considering the position. But Ronald Reagan told Gorbachev, “Tear down that wall” and he did.

Throughout history some of the greatest leaders were dubbed the most unlikely.

The Bible is full of them.

Daniel 2:21 He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. 

One man was laughed at for building a very large boat. He had the last laugh.

A young boy betrayed and left for dead by his brothers became the 2nd most powerful man in Egypt saving many from famine.

A Hebrew murderer became the deliverer of the Israelite’s.

A shepherd became a King.

Queen Esther was a Jewish exile who married the King of Persia. Persia was the greatest empire in the world during the late 400’s B.C. She risked her own life to save the Jewish people from annihilation.

A young, unknown Jewish girl became the mother of the Savior of the world. There is no other position in the human race like hers. Her cousin became the mother of the forerunner to the King of Kings.

A demonic woman was cast free of her evil and became one of the closest followers of Jesus.

A fraudulent tax collector became one of the first disciples and has a book in the Bible named after him.

A fisherman started the first church.

An educated, well-off Pharisee who hurt and killed many Christians became the first Missionary. He is also the author of many books in the New Testament.

The Book of Revelations was written by a man who was banished to the Island of Patmos for teaching the Gospel. Written from visionary accounts, the book is considered to be the Apocalypse of the New Testament outlining the future and 2nd return of Jesus Christ.

So here we are nearing one of the most important elections in the history of America.

Do you think God has had his hand on history?

Proverbs 8:15 “Proverbs 8:15 By me kings reign and rulers issue decrees that are just.”

Do you believe God knows what He is doing?

God often chooses those we wouldn’t because He is the author of inventive creations. He takes a willing vessel and molds them to pursue His purposes.

God expects legal citizens of America to vote according to His word. This may arrive by spending much time alone with God seeking His heart for guidance. 

They may not be Presidential.

They may not act Presidential.

They maybe have never held a political position.

They may not be what the present government wants.

They may not be as educated as people want.

They may not be famous.

They may not be….what we want.

But they are who God chooses.

And God chooses who? (Part 1)


 

The political season is in full swing.  The election is 6 months away. The media is not worth watching. The mudslinging is more like a mudslide and differing opinions are chaotically being thrown around like tennis balls at the French Open. (Begins May 22)

What does all of this mean?tennis

A changing of the guards?

We are reaching a new milestone?

A new wind is blowing?

Whatever the answer, you can smell it, taste it and feel the atmosphere changing.

Depending on your viewpoint, determines which side or position you follow.

Is the blind leading the blind or is it crystal clear?

Are we a nation of directives or a nation of followers?

What does God think about this election?

Probably everything since he is Sovereign.

Psalm 22:28 “For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.”

Since the Bible is true and is God’s word, He has already decided who will be the next President. If God chooses our leaders what does that mean?

It means He is in charge.

But what happens when God appoints a President we don’t like or agree with?oval-office-c1996

Our leaders are a reflection of how we treat God.

So, if we have ignored God, thrown him out of our schools, homes and government what does that mean?

It means we had better get on our knees and repent, fast.

It means He has taken His hand of protection off of our land and allowed havoc to enter.

It means the only way evil will go away is if we turn back to Him.

I don’t know about you but the state of our nation is definitely in a mess. It’s so obvious we have turned away from God and he let us have our way. However, that doesn’t mean He has given up on America. Quite the contrary.

I believe America is and will be a catalyst for one of the greatest moves of God in history.

I believe we are in that process now because God knows the darkness that surrounds this nation is overwhelming and evil to the core.

I believe we are on the verge of a great change for the Kingdom of God to run over the evil that has tried to take over.

So who will lead us?

To be continued…..

Once upon a time…or was it? Or is it? Part 2


The crossroads of history have hit America. The scenario of my previous post is very much a possibility as these terrorists groups make their intentions known to the world. And America now has a part to play in the outcome. Or does it?

God is more than capable of repeating history as was written in 11 Chronicles 20. However he may have something else in mind.

Our President has 2 choices and the greatest test of his position is now at stake. Those choices are:

1. Build up our military. Send forces after wise counsel from those in top command posts as needed. Supply our service men and women with the means to counter and rid the world of this satanic evil. In the process our leader should equip those innocents stuck in the middle geographically with shelter, food and medical care.

 2. The President can sit back, stay in retreat and do nothing.

 

The differences in these 2 decisions by this President will result in 2 scenarios.

1. He can do the will of God and go out and fight this war. In doing so he will have to change the way he has been taught to think, behave and act. He will have to let go of any political motivation for the sake of winning votes, go against those who are against war and do the right thing by America but also for the world. He can leave office in 2 years knowing he aided in stopping or ending these vile people from hurting and killing blameless children and families who couldn’t fight themselves.

 2. Or he can do nothing and leave the Presidential office in shame.

 

NOW: I am going to ask you to pray as you have never prayed before for our President.  I have been for a very long time but it is crucial at this point in time.

I am convinced the entire administration is fearing for their lives as these terrorists have most likely pummeled them with death threats.  I believe God wants to give him credit for making the right choice but more than that it will reveal a true change of heart in this very, sad and lonely man right now.

Going out on a limb, I know how it looks that the President seems to be enjoying golf more than he should; I don’t condone for one minute his awful timing, but we should never underestimate God.

If God can make a donkey talk, he can surely speak to President Obama on the golf course even if it was the worst possible time to be there. I believe he has purposely retreated; gone into some type of seclusion to think. He certainly has a great deal to think about.

His timing has produced judgmental and calculating questions in the minds of many, but he is truly alone right now.

Pray.Pray.Pray. And thank God for healing the world.

2 Chronicles 7:14 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.”

What are you watching? Listening to? Reading?


 

In a recent edition of “Decision” magazine, Franklin Graham wrote an outspoken article on the entertainment industry in America titled,

“Hollywood: Entertaining ourselves to death?”

After living many years in the hometown of the Graham’s, Franklin remains a household name.  I worked with a man for 12 years who was in the same class as Franklin growing up.

Not only him, but many others who knew the “rebel” he was saw him giving his parents a hard time as a teenager into his early 20’s. However, he is now using that “rebellious overtone” to speak bluntly and candidly about issues facing our nation his father preached against for decades.

Like, Franklin I remember when there was no cussing, sex and very little violence except for a few John Wayne shootouts and The Rifleman. Good always won over evil but nothing was ever an embarrassment to watch with anyone else.

Trying to explain that to the generation of young people today is like helping them understand how we lived without cell phones and computers most of our lives. It is incomprehensible.

In the article he quoted Michael Landon who died many years ago after his efforts to keep TV/movies clean and child accessible.

“Let’s face it, television is an invention where you’re entertained in your living room by people you wouldn’t have in your house!”

Landon, speaking at a roast for Dean Martin was applauded with shameful grins.

There is no need to exacerbate the unlimited vulgarities played out on the screens today because we all know them.  As garbage goes in, garbage goes out. In the process it filters through our brains leaving trash sloshing around for the enemy to use. And we wonder why we have nightmares.

The ill -fated, sick delusion of Hollywood has laid upon our nation a reputation certain leaders in other countries want no part of.  Christian artist Natalie Grant walked out of the Grammy’s due to the Gay/LGBT community takeover of this awards show. Mandisa didn’t attend and won two awards. Threaded with the Gay implications and nuances throughout the show was a huge maneuver of control by this group.

A number of well-known actors such as Kevin Sorbo, Kirk Cameron and Gary Sinise have made their stance clear against homosexuality. An addition to the Gay agenda are any actors speaking out against the Obama administration. The latest fatality has been James Wood. He spoke that he now believes he will never get another acting job due to his conviction. And he is not alone in the “black list of fallen actors.”  Kevin Sorbo recently revealed the number of offers for him has greatly diminished.  So much for being qualified.

(An interesting side note about James Wood. He has an IQ of 186; higher than Einstein. And he has a story about flying on a plane a month before 9/11 in which there were 4 Middle Eastern men who he later found out were planning the attack; 2 of which were on the planes that evil day.)

The “Decision” magazine also had an article about the Ugandan President who signed an Anti-Homosexuality bill on 2/24. President Yoweri Museveni has been outspoken about the split his Ugandan church made from the Anglican Church of Canada 10 years ago over this issue. An Ugandan Archbishop stated, “homosexuality is incompatible with scripture.”

President Museveni has been criticized from Western leaders such as President Obama over certain remarks he has made and I quote:

“We have been disappointed by the conduct of the west, the way you conduct yourselves there. “

Having been told the Ugandan’s must abide by this stance he answered unequivocally,

“That’ where we say no.”

President of Uganda

President of Uganda

 

President Museveni was interviewed by a CNN reporter who asked him if he personally dislikes homosexuals. His answer,

“Of course. They’re disgusting. What sort of people are they?”
