The Best Part of Your Life Is Yet To Come

One of the blessings of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ is the hope for the future He imparts to us.

No longer do we need to be concerned about what will happen tomorrow, for we know our life is now under His control, and He always desires the very best for us.

“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

We need not worry about what we shall eat or drink or what we shall we shall wear, for our heavenly Father knows ahead of time what we need and will provide for us – if we first seek His kingdom and righteousness (Matthew 6:31-33).

When we get nervous about anything, the Scriptures tell us that, by prayer and supplication, we are to make our requests known unto Him. As we do, the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will comfort our hearts and minds through Messiah Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).

So today, regardless of your circumstances or concerns, comfort yourself in God’s promises and rejoice in the fact that He will take good care of you – today, tomorrow, and forevermore. As a child of God, your future is in God’s hands and highly blessed. Regardless of your checkered past, the best part of your life is yet to come!

Grateful to God in all things

Grace For Today“Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”1 Thessalonians 5:16–18

An attitude of gratitude is a decision we must make every morning when we get out of bed – even when we don’t feel like it. Remember that each new day is a gift from God. The fact that we woke up at all is a blessing from God.

Even though you may have money troubles, physical ailments, rebellious children or other complaints, choose to give thanks to God in all circumstances. Don’t just thank Him for when things are going good in your life, but also for the things that are going wrong. Even our chastisements and corrections are a demonstrations of God’s love, and His design for our benefit. If we truly are trusting Jesus Christ as the Lord of our lives, then we should be confident that He is working ALL things out for our good (Romans 8:28).

Be careful not to quench the Holy Spirit by indulging in self-pity, resentment or bitterness. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus. As you do, He will reward you with His peace, joy, nearness and comfort. A truly victorious life in Christ is a life of constant joy.

FAITH STEP

Think of five things you are grateful for and concentrate on those today. Praise God for them and submit to His divine wisdom in allowing them into your life.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I praise You and thank You for everything in my life today – not only for the good, but also for any adversity I may be experiencing. I choose to have an attitude of gratitude, for I know you are working all things out for my good. I thank You especially for my salvation in Christ Jesus; for forgiving me of my sins and redeeming me with His precious blood. Amen.

America’s Greatest Threat in 2013

Prophecy Watch_300 pxNational Security: America’s Greatest Threat in 2013

The president of the United States, Barack Obama, begins a second term in office in just a few days on January 20, 2013. For the next four years, President Obama and his cabinet of advisors must look for solutions to address the following problems and threats to national security:

  • Runaway financial deficits
  • Heightened fear and lack of national hope
  • Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons and potential violence
  • Tensions and eruptions of violence in the Middle East
  • The threat of China as a rising economic and military power (China holds in its hands billions of dollars in American debt and is challenging long-standing American supremacy in the region of Asia).
  • America’s $ 16 trillion debt as a threat to national security. Even the world’s most powerful nation can eventually spend itself into bankruptcy.

The most serious threat.

The most serious threat to America’s national security is the sins of the nation and the forsaking of God’s laws. America was original founded as a Christian republic. It’s founding fathers made an agreement with God to live by His laws. For over two hundred years, Almighty God has blessed and prospered the United States because of its adherence to the Ten Commandments and the Bible as a basis for our civil form of government. The majority of the framers of the U.S. Constitution were men who read the Bible and practiced its principles. They understood the character of the people of this nation had to be in line with God’s spiritual laws in order for the country to prosper.

But over the course of many decades now, America has backslidden and departed from its Christian character and has become primarily a secular nation – no longer believing in the living God that prospered it, and having no use for His spiritual and moral laws. As a result, the blessings of God have increasingly been lost, and the curses of God in Deuteronomy 28 have overtaken us.

But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you… – Deuteronomy 28:15

Because God holds a nation accountable who claims to be “Christian” by honoring and representing Him, the curses of breaking its covenant with God are being fulfilled.

Moses prophesied to Israel of the blessings and curses of obeying or breaking God’s covenant in great detail in the Book of Deuteronomy. I believe these same blessings and curses apply to America today. The curses America is experiencing today – economic problems, national catastrophes, and so on, are directly related to America’s forsaking of God.

Will America repent before it’s too late?

We don’t know. But the Word of God has given us the solution to all of our national problems in 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Because God is merciful and patient, He promises to turn back the curses upon America if it will turn back to Him. Let us continue to pray for President Obama and the leaders of the United States to repent and return America back to God before it is too late. If we will humble ourselves and seek His pardon He will heal our land. Let us also examine our own lives and repent of our own personal sins. Every one of us has a personal responsibility to live by God’s laws if we would hope to be happy in this life and continue in His blessings. Amen.

Should the United States Recede Back to its 1845 Borders?

If the above question sounds a bit absurd, so should the recent proposal to the State of Israel by the Obama Administration that Israel should recede back to its 1967 borders in order to appease the Palestinian / Arab governments.

If we use the same kind of pretzel logic that the Presidential Administration is using, we could also rationalize the returning of land to Mexico that the United States took (annexed) from them in 1845 (see map below).

1845 Mexican Border

1845 Mexican Border

During the American and Mexican War (1846-1848), thousands of Mexican people were driven from their homes and lands and forced to relocate south of the new U.S. borders imposed by American aggression. Some people might even argue that American settlement in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and California is clearly illegal and should be returned to Mexico.

Please Stand in Solidarity with Israel

The truth of the matter is, Israel won the 1967 war with the Palestinians and Arabs – fair and square. No one has the right to pressure them to give up this land.

From a biblical perspective, the Children of Israel fought many such wars in the Old Testament, conquering the Amorites, Ammonites, Moabites, Jebusites, and others who originally lived in the land of Canaan. In each case, God Himself instructed the Israelites to do so, and He gave them the victory – sometimes under seemingly impossible odds. After each battle, God also instructed them to dispossess the inhabitants and possess the land for themselves, along with the spoils of war. Why should things be any different today?

God originally gave this land of Israel as a possession to Abraham and his descendents forever through his son ISAAC (not Ishmael). The land of Israel has never belonged to the Arabs nor the Palestinians since that time, and anyone who tries to undo what God has ordained will find themselves pushing against a brick wall. God made a promise to Abraham and the Jewish people long ago that still stands:

“The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, ‘Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever…Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.” – Genesis 13:14-17

As an American evangelical Christian I believe the Bible is inspired by God and I take it’s warnings seriously. I am a strong supporter of the State of Israel and I regularly pray for the peace (shalom) of Jerusalem (Psalms 122:7). Therefore, I am concerned that if the Obama Administration continues to pressure the State of Israel to give up the land that rightly belongs to them, the anger of God will be aroused against America and the curse pronounced against those who curse (or harm) Israel will come upon us (Genesis 12:3).

Write your congressman and protest Obama’s irrational proposal to have Israel return to its 1967 borders, and continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Trusting God’s Direction

From Pastor Luis Yosefus Here is a prophetic word from the LORD for you today:

“Do not fear My voice, nor My direction for your life, even if it causes you to take a turn you do not understand. I am bringing you out of your comfort zone and disrupting your man-made plans. Be obedient to My voice; remember that I am completely trustworthy and desire only what is best for you. Follow Abraham’s example; he believed God and obeyed My voice to leave his family and country, to give up all that was dear to him, and to travel to an unknown land. As a result of his obedience I greatly blessed him, and he was called ‘a friend of God.’ Believe My promises to you today; I am able to bring them to pass, even though, right now, you might not see how I will do it.”
