We can no longer be silent as our magnificent nation is run into ruin!

god-bless-americaWP6.1.19

If you care about our nation, it is time to get involved in how this nation is being run.
If you are an American citizen, you are blessed! This nation is the best in the world. I am not bragging or being overly cocky as I am only stating the truth.
If you are blessed enough to travel around the world, you know this to be true. So many nations live in poverty with corrupt governments or leaders that do not care about its citizens.
America is a great nation! I am thankful that God bestowed me the gift of being an American citizen. I thank Him often for this gift.
This land was founded on God, blessed by God, and continues to be a beacon of God’s love and hope to all other nations.
We are blessed to live in a nation where we can elect the officials who run it.
Lately, we all have done a poor job of keeping tabs on these individuals.
I get it. I know you are super busy. You have a job or jobs, a family, and a ton of other responsibilities to tend to.
I am not criticizing any of you. I know how overwhelming life can become at times with all of our responsibilities.
I work two jobs, have a family, etc., but I made a decision that I had to get more involved in the way this nation was headed.
It appears that elected officials who have been in office for long periods have placed their pocketbooks, families, hunger for power, and their agenda in front of the good of America and Her citizens.
For many years now, they have gone unchecked and allegedly managed to become corrupt.
It seems that their main concern is not for the citizens for this mighty nation but for allowing, promoting, and protecting people who gain access to this nation through illegal methods.
Now, the people running to replace our current President have also shown loyalty to those who come here illegally. They have stated that they will take the hard-earned money of American taxpayers to foot the bill for social services to assist those who gained access to our country by breaking our laws.
They have also stated that they will raise the taxes of American citizens to take care of all these illegals immigrants.
One of these individuals stated that he would raise the taxes of people who make a mere $29,000 a year to help pay for all the social services that these illegal individuals will need.
What about our citizens? Who is taking care and looking out for our American citizens who are elderly, sick, have mental issues, disabled, a veteran, or those who are living in extreme poverty?
There is no option but to get involved. We can’t sit around anymore and complain and yet do nothing to help.
You may not have the time to take on every issue, but there are a few that are too important to be ignored anymore.
Pick 2 or 3 issues that are important to you, your family, and your community.
If I had to pick only 3, I would say that my top 3 are abortion, the budget deficit, and the revitalization of America, which includes, American jobs, American wages, etc.)
Apologies, but I would have to add one more to my plate. That being the reinstating of God back into our nation, our schools, our lives, and our families.
I truly believe God will ask each one of us on the day of judgment what we did to change things for the better.
We have a responsibility to each other to hold our leaders accountable for any corruption and lies that they have committed. If they have broken the law, they too must be held accountable.
If they refuse to do what is best for America, then it is time to vote them out of office.
We can no longer allow them to stay in office with the agenda of themselves first and foremost, illegals immigrants second, and American citizens in last place.
When they entered their position in government, they took an oath to uphold our Constitution and to protect the citizens of this nation above everything else.
They placed their hand on the bible and swore to uphold the Constitution and to protect us. I guess they think that this small action of their hand on the bible isn’t very significant.
Well, I hate to be the one to burst their bubble, but when they placed their hand on God’s word and swore with their very own words, they swore and promised to complete the responsibilities placed on them. They openly and willingly made a promise to us, but most of all, to God Himself.
Now, God honors His word and His promises, and He expects the same from us. If we placed our hand on His word and swore or affirmed that our actions and our words will conform to what is expected of us, we are entering into a covenant/contract/promise with God.
Affirming that we will speak the truth or that we promise to uphold certain things or people above all other things is a serious business.
Those who placed their hand on the bible and swore, to tell the truth, or to uphold certain things will have to answer to God Himself when they fall off that path.
Next time you have to place your hand on the bible and swore or affirmed, to tell the truth, please pick your words very carefully. Lying or purposely misleading people after you place your hand on the bible and affirm to be truthful is something not be messed with.
I, for one, do not want to know what the consequences are for misleading or lying after affirming I would be truthful and not misleading.
Each one of us will answer to God for every word we spoke, for actions that we purposely used or sought to bring hurt, despair, or agony to others.
Again, this also reflects how powerful our words are.
Again, this nation was a gift to us from God. We are responsible for how it is run. We must speak up when we see abuse. It is time to get America back on the right track.
Regardless of how much we have to go on in our lives, we have to get involved. When you are asked by God why you did nothing to change how specific individuals where corrupting His gift, what will you tell Him?
What excuse will you give God? There is no excuse good enough. And to stand in front of God and give excuses, which are mere lies we tell ourselves to ease our guilt, shame, or to make us feel better, will in no way suffice for our inaction.

God, avenge those who have been lied to, and those who have been falsely destroyed!

shutterstock_127432007

God, avenge those who have been lied to, and those who have been falsely destroyed.
America has so many issues that are destroying our nation. Yet, those in charge of making our laws seem to do nothing but fight, waste precious time, and money of America’s hard-working citizens.
Blind hate has taken over many in our Congress. Their hearts are filled with anger, and vindictiveness has skewed their thinking. A wicked thirst to destroy all those who oppose them has made them stark raving mad.
Their wicked lies spoken over, over, over, over again has led to them brainwashing themselves.
They have thrown common sense out the window.
The rant about one thing while allowing their policies to destroy that very thing they claim is so precious to them.
They claim to uphold and fight to protect our constitution, but the actions they take hurt American constitutional rights.
Their greed for money and power has caused them to be dilutional and to mislead the citizens of America.
Our nation is spending money in a way that is not sustainable. Yet, these individuals will spend trillions of American taxpayer money to fix a problem that does not exist to the extent they are stating.
They would see to our booming economy decimated to gain power and to implement social programs for non-citizens of America.
They would continue to give jobs, prosperity, and the future of America away.
In the last year alone, no laws that would help Americans have been passed by the House of Representatives. Instead, they have focused on the destruction of someone they blindly hate.
I don’t care what political party you support. I am not trying to convince you to change parties, but only to see that our constitutional rights are being violated.
The constitutional rights of many individuals in the path of Democrats of the House have been decimated.
Every American should care about this. If this can be done to these individuals, it can certainly be done to each one of us.
We need to stand up and speak our displeasure of being lied to for years. We need to speak up and say that we don’t approve of the constitutional rights of specific individuals being violated.
We need to speak up and ask that their endless investigations end. We have to demand that they stop wasting time and money of the American taxpayers.
I know many mock us when we call for additional prayers, but we cannot let them stop our prayers.
Our prayers are one of our most potent weapons as Christians.
Our prayers invite God into our situations and permit Him to assist us.
Yes, we have to obey man’s laws, as God’s work decrees this but His word also says this about man creating oppressive laws in Isiah 10:1-3:
1Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees,
2 to deprive the poor of their rights
and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
making widows their prey
and robbing the fatherless.
3 What will you do on the day of reckoning,
when disaster comes from afar?
To whom will you run for help?
Where will you leave your riches?
We have to remind God during our prayers of His word not that He has forgotten but to show Him that we know what His word says.
His word has to be fulfilled on earth. We have to speak His word back to Him out loud. We have to let God, our enemy, and even ourselves hear the word and promises of God.
Repeating God’s word back to Him is like reminding Him that He has to move. It tells Him that He has to take our impossible situations and turn them into His miracles.
We cannot give up on prayers and, most of all, on God. He will turn things around. He will avenge His people. He will cause those who lie to us to be exposed. His word says so. His word says that what man does in secret, He will make known to man.
And never forgot, God does not like liars, and His word says that too. In Proverbs 12:22, that He detests lying lips.
Proverbs 6:16-19, lists six things that God hates and lying it on that list.
Do not be discouraged. God will prevail. It may seem that it is taking a long time for the truth to be revealed, but God will see that it is.

 

Yes, God! I will fulfill my God-given destiny!

God’s promises do come to pass. We have to hold onto them until they do. How long would you wait for God’s promise to come to pass?
So often we receive a promise from God then expect it to appear the next day, the next month, the next few months.
When we are forced to wait any longer, we get so discouraged and often give up. What happens when we have to wait years and years for this promise to show up? We let go! We give up. Then, we second guess what God promised us? We think we are unworthy, or we believe that God changed His mind.
Sometimes, we get angry. We tell ourselves that we wasted so much time and effort on a promise that never showed up.
First and foremost, you have to understand that God does not measure time as we do. In our calendar year, perhaps in the same time frame, only a minute has passed for God.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to know that before our promise is delivered, we have to be prepared. We have to be tested by God. We have to prove we are ready to receive such an enormous promise.
God must prepare us. Can you imagine what would happen if we received a promise from God without being prepared? It would end disastrously.
Would you ever give a teenager the keys to a new car without first testing them to make sure they are prepared to drive?
Would you ever let your child drive without a license? They must take some form of class. They must have some training to learn how to drive with either formal or informal courses.
It is the same for us and our promises. We have to be prepared and tested. We have to be ready. We have to have our foundation in place.
Our faith has to be tested! God works through our faith and is moved by faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God(Heb11:6).
His word tells us that we must believe in Him and earnestly seek Him. He rewards our diligence. He honors our persistence!
Do you have the boldness, the persistence, the diligence, and the relentlessness to seek Him for all His promises? If you don’t, do you want to have these things to step boldly out into the faith you need?
Then, pray and ask. Pursue God for these things. We have not because we ask not(Matt7:7).
A lot of us will never step into the fruition of His promises because we will give up and quit! We will let go.
Then some of us will become angry, bitter, and frustrated with God. We will blame Him for wasting our time, but in all truth, it was us that spent our own time, efforts, those promises.
We are shown a significant promise but not the road we will have to travel to get there. We are not shown the amount of time that will pass before we are standing in the fruition of that promise.
It may be a long, tedious, treacherous road that must be traveled. God does not show us this part because this is the part where our faith must arise, abide, and carry us through.
No matter how long it takes, don’t let go! Hold on, no matter how much time passes. Don’t give up on God. He knows what He is doing. Trust in Him, in His timing, and His love for you.

Whatever you do, hang on to that prophecy!

bible-on-wood-tableWP7.20.19

We get so excited when we receive a prophetic word over our lives.
We wait and wait and wait for those prophecies to come to pass.
Then several months later, when that promise has not shown up, we often give up on it.
We give up too soon! We think God’s promises will show up the next day or the following week.
The truth is that God’s promises may not show up for years. Could you wait 12, 15, or 20 years for God’s prophecy to come to pass? Would you wait that long???
We have to remember that God’s timing is not the same as ours. He does not recognize time passing the same way we do. Years may pass for us, but for God, it may only be a year’s timeframe.
Between the time that promise is spoken and the time it shows up, we have work to do.
You MUST keep that word alive. We MUST speak life into that prophetic word. We have to remind God of that promise often and show Him that we have not given up on it.
Write that prophetic word down, word for word. Write down specific things like where you were, the date, the time, who was with you, how you felt, and the things you felt.
Then, read it often, and remind God of His promise spoken through His true prophet.
The word has to come from a true prophet of God! There should be clear evidence that this prophet or prophetess has a good track record of speaking God’s will via their prophecies.
Also, remind yourself, often, that God is faithful and that His promises have to come to pass.
There are a lot of false prophets in this world. Those false prophets come to fool/trick you.
You don’t have to wait for the prophet to come to town. Go and prophecy over yourself. You know God’s word. Use it!
Lay hands on yourself and prophecy that God came to give you a more abundant life. Prophecy that God has healed your body and mind, that you are set free, that you are blessed coming in and going out, that everywhere your feet touch that you shall possess it, that God is restoring your power, that you are a descendant of Abraham and as his descendant, you have access to all the promises God spoke over Abraham.
All of this is in your bible, AND much, much, much more! Read it yourself! Remind yourself of all of God’s promises.
He wants you blessed beyond anything you can contain. He blesses you for you to, in turn, bless others.
Believe, receive, and decree these promises today!

God’s word stands forever. Amen!

dear-future-im-readyWP3.16.19

God hasn’t forgotten what He promised you! God cannot lie, and He is always faithful!
He will bring it to pass. Somehow, someway, God will do it! He always keeps his promises.
Though it seems impossible, it seems so far away, and it appears as though it will never happen, God will do it!
So what every confirmed promise you have, hold onto it. Never give up on it. Never let it go. Never let anyone talk you out of what God promised.
God will bring to pass what He promised. He has to! If He doesn’t, that means that God is breaking His word.
God’s word CANNOT be changed or altered in any way. His word cannot be broken or unfulfilled. His word is His word period. It is never changing, never-ending, and all abiding, in the name of Jesus!
God himself cannot change His word. Heaven and earth shall pass, BUT HIS WORD will stand forever. Amen!
Speak with bold authority that God must bring that promise to pass. Utter it aloud with confidence. Let God, yourself, and the enemy hear it often. But be prepared because when you speak with boldness and authority of God’s promises and words, all hell will break loose.
The enemy will fight to stop you. Our enemy will do everything to stop you from stepping into your divine destiny.
As much as God wants you to achieve your destiny, our enemy wants, even more, to stop you from fulfilling that destiny.
The enemy wants to make God be a liar. He wants to keep you poisoned with fear and doubt, and He wants to make you double think who you are and whose you are.
He wants you not to believe who God says you are and what God told you could have.
Do not believe his lies for he is the father of all lies.
Combat his lies with the TRUTH of God! That is why uttering God’s promises aloud and often, are imperative! Without theses, utterance’s of God’s promises, you are susceptible to the lies, doubts, and fears of the enemy!

Did you let your dreams die?

you-are-forgivenWP4.13.19

You know what God showed you about your destiny. It was so long ago, but you are holding onto that vision, or did you give up on it?
Do not let go of it! Hold onto that promise with every ounce of strength you have.
Do not let go of that promise for any hater, naysayer, or doubter.
Yes, they may laugh and make fun of you, but let them! Don’t let their doubts and disbelief affect your praise, worship, faith, or your spoken utterances of God’s promises.
Let them laugh, point their fingers, and shake their heads in disbelief
God will have the last laugh. When they see what God brings to pass, they will be calling you, searching for you, looking for you, and asking everyone where you are and how to get ahold of you.
Never think that your dreams are dead!
If you have let go of those dreams because so much time has passed and you though God had forgotten about you and His promises, then here is the plan.
First, seek God’s forgiveness for giving up on Him, and His promises then revive those dreams with your words! YOUR WORDS HAVE POWER! You are a child of the most high God. His words have power, and so do yours! God speaks life into everything, and so can you!
SO, speak life into those dreams to reignite them!
Do not let your dreams wither and die. Speak life into them!
