Wake up, America. We are in trouble.
When one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty & justice for all decides to tell its personnel that they are no longer to pray in the Name of the only name that saves; the only Name that lights every man that enters the world; the only Name that gives Life; the only Name that paid the price for yours, theirs, and my sin; the only Name that can reveal the Father; the only Name that can heal the sick; the only Name that can cast out demons; the only Name that can cause a leper to be made whole; the only Name that can give sight to the blind;
Jesus Christ, the son of God,
then we, as a nation, are no longer under God, we are definitely divisible, we have lost liberty & there is no such thing as justice anymore.
Men are not given power on earth unless it is first given to them from heaven.
I don't care if a man thinks otherwise; that's only his heart deceiving him -- which allows him to continue in that line of deceitful thinking: "I earned this." "I got mySELF here." "I worked hard to get to where I'm at." "I have worked all my life to get to this point." "I am more qualified than anyone else in the world to be in this position."
I don't care who you are -- you're where you're at because of two things: God's longsuffering & your heart's choices.
I am the Lord: that is my name: & my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Ever see a man slowly wither away because cancer is eating him up from the inside? Spreading through his body, through his bloodstream, into other parts of his body? A healthy, strong, robust, jovial man with pink skin turned into a shriveled, frail, pallid skeleton? Where once there was laughter & joking & conversation, it was replaced with silent fears & painful looks & ...waiting for the inevitable? The whole time they are still alive, it's just a waiting game. Waiting, but hoping. Hoping for what? For restoration. How? I don't care how it comes, just bring it. But what if that person doesn't want it? Or they don't believe it can happen? Or it's too late? And you're the only one left believing in miracles... all the way to the end?
That is the state of the United States of America. It is sick from the head to the foot. By "sick", I mean ill.
Ever know someone who broke a bone or injured their self in a game, but kept on playing the game anyway? They acted all tough like they could "tough it out" & so instead of stopping the game & getting help right away, they continued to push through the injury. Then when they finally submitted to the help, they discovered that they had worsened the injury. When the injury first occurred, they should have went for help right then & stopped the injury from getting any worse. But by playing through it & "toughing it out", they instead caused more damage which resulted in extensive reparation & longer recuperation time.
That is the state of the United States of America. This nation is in serious need of getting help. And now, it has gone over the edge & become anti-Christ.
America? We are in trouble.
Did you think 9/11 was bad? Did you think Hurricane Katrina was bad? Those were just warnings. It is time to REPENT. Forget camping out in front of the nation's capitol and going on public tv or public anything and petitioning or going on hunger-strikes. (Of course, the media & mockers will call fasting a "hunger strike".)
If you are reading this & you are following Jesus Christ & he leads you to, then FAST & PRAY. Don't do it publicly. Do it in private. Repent for our nation.
If you cannot fast for whatever reason, then WATCH & PRAY. Why? Because this nation has been opened to destruction as a result of the ignorance of the armed services of the United States - more particularly, the U.S. Navy - by denying its very own clergyman -- who is in that position to serve the LORD, not man, not the U.S. NAVY, but the LORD -- to pray in THE VERY NAME THAT SAVES - the very name of Jesus Christ who is the only mediator between GOD & man.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou are my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, & he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, and let all the angels of God worship him.
...made himself of no reputation, & took upon him the form of a servant, & was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, & became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, & given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, & things in earth, & things under the earth; & that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of GOD the Father.
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, & set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, & power, & might, & dominion, & every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, & gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
Fast & pray - for God's mercy, for God's grace, for repentance on behalf of this nation's leadership. Fast & pray that God's judgment will not be hard. Fast & pray to tear down the strongholds, the powers of darkness, the principalities of darkness that are warring to cover this nation with darkness. We have seen the anti-Christ spirit manifest publicly in the U.S. Navy. If it has gotten its foul foot into the door of our government's defenses, then it will
- spread through our nation &
- open the door for other princes of darkness to come into our nation, under our nose & in front of our very blinded eyes.
It is GOD who puts men into power. If the people do not like that the leader worships GOD & has a heart after GOD, then let them! The most they can do is kill the man of GOD. But at least the man of GOD died faithful to GOD. Those who killed him will be in a worse position than they were before they laid hands on him, heaping GOD's wrath upon themselves.
But now our United States Navy have dissed GOD's son: "Don't pray in the name of Jesus when you are in uniform." *tsk *tsk *tsk - shame on the U.S. Navy. And shame on the Commander-In-Chief for letting this door become wide open for the spiritual darkness that has been eager to invade & destroy this country. It is just as important to ensure the defenses in the spirit realm as it is to ensure the defenses of this physical realm. A true follower of Christ would have discerned that.
Who came up with that man-made, religious piece of corrupted & perverse garbage, "Don't pray in the name of Jesus when you are in uniform"?
What the heck kind of system would put a man in a position to mediate for the people to GOD -- in whatever capacity, at whatever location, for whatever cause -- and then tell him, "Don't pray in the name of Jesus when you are in uniform"?
The "religious tolerance" ideal in this nation is hypocritical. As a nation, we can protect mosques from sabotage. We can have a whole state pretty much dedicated to a religion with their own laws. We can shelter religious leaders from years in prison upon proving that they are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt for molesting children (unless, of course -- to go along with this hypocritical theme -- that religious leader is a Christian leader who hooks up with a prostitute). But we cannot permit Christians to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. All of these observations within this nation tell me what season this nation is in. The same way I observe the termination dust on the mountains to determine when the snow will fall so I can put the snow tires on before then. Christians always profess the name of Jesus Christ because of the power associated with His name. When the Roman soldiers came with Judas Iscariot to escort him to begin his crucifixion, there was such power in just His name that when they referred to his name, "Jesus", as being the one they were coming out to get... all he breathed out for an answer was "I am" and the force of his words caused them to fall backwards. That is just a small demonstration of the power of his name.
The U.S. Navy just dissed I Am. We're in trouble now, folks.
For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, & we will walk in the name of the Lord our GOD for ever & ever.
The U.S. Navy is not GOD. The President of the United States is not GOD. The Supreme Court & all the judicial branches in this nation & those who preside in the court systems - are not GOD.
I would rather obey GOD than man. Our U.S. Navy has just weakened itself & this nation with this arrogant action. By exalting themselves above the name of the LORD in ordering someone not to pray in Jesus' name, they have just become the weakest link in our defense system to this country. As a nation, we will see the truth of this saying when our enemies penetrate the U.S. Navy's setup & get past them to strike at us. But even more - they will get past all our defenses. This is why we need to watch & pray. Pride goeth before a fall. Watch & pray to plead that we do not fall hard, that God would save many, that judgment would not be so hard, that God would give grace & mercy & remember His people who call Him by name & spare many.
Unfortunately, the U.S. Navy's action has a direct reflection upon the President of the United States & his governing body. So - the head is sick and the whole body is affected.
I know thy works, & where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, & hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, & to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, & will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, & will give him a white stone, & in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
America - wake up. We are in trouble.
We could really use a good dosage of that ointment poured on us. Help us Lord GOD Almighty, we are a sinful nation & we have sinned against You. Forgive our sins, heal our wounds, Lord. Do not let your wrath be so strong upon us, for who can bear it? Remember mercy in judgment, Lord GOD. Have mercy upon us. In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.
