Time is Running Short for America

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I originally published this message in May of 2012. Since then, America has not repented; instead they have continued morally downhill and further rebelled against God. Therefore, more disaster is imminent – perhaps sooner than the year 2015, as Rabbi Cahn predicts in his book, The Harbinger. God’s people need to prepare for the worst economic meltdown ever seen in the history of the United States, as well as other calamities. Only those who seek refuge in God will have any hope. Read Psalms 91 and heed its admonitions. – Pastor Luis Yosefus

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” – Isaiah 9:16

For quite a number of years now, God’s true prophets in the Christian church have been calling America to repent and turn back to God. Sadly, many of these genuine prophetic voices have been drowned out by spiritually adulterous pastors and preachers who falsely reassure God’s people that God is not mad at them. They are like the compromising spiritual leaders of Israel who promised God’s people “peace and blessing” when disaster was looming over the horizon. When the people began to fear God’s judgments, the false prophets and lying priests comforted them by flatterings, showing that God would send peace to them, and not war.

“They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the LORD.” – Jeremiah 6:14-15

One such prophet who is sounding the alarm today is Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He has written an important book called The Harbinger which clearly illustrates the warning signs that God has been sending upon the United States of America. He likens these progressive warning judgments as Shemittahs (pronounced She-mee-tah in Hebrew) of seven-year cycles.

* The first Shemittah was the Terrorist Attack of 9/11/2001 on New York City’s Twin Towers.

* The second Shemittah was the Economic Collapse of 2008

* The third Shemittah will happen in the year 2015.

As these seven-year Shemittahs continue, God’s judgments will get progressively worse upon America. Unless America humbles herself, seeks God’s face, and turns from her wicked ways, God will not heal this nation from all her troubles (2 Chronicles 7:14). We have forsaken the LORD who once greatly blessed this nation. Therefore, because of America’s disobedience God is now sending curses upon America instead of blessing.

God says, “Do not listen to your arrogant leaders who cause you to err.”

After the first and second Shemittah judgments in 2001 and 2008, the arrogant American politicians declared:

“We will rebuild and emerge stronger than ever before!”

Israel’s leaders gave the people the same false assurance: “They said, “We will replace the broken bricks of our ruins with finished stone, and replant the felled sycamore-fig trees with cedars.” (Isaiah 9:10)

But God has a different message for the American people. It is the same message He spoke to the rebellious nation of Israel:

“For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. Therefore, in a single day the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed. The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.” – Isaiah 9:13-15

Unless America repents, God will send further calamities upon this nation which will reach all sorts of persons – both the prominent politicians and apostate church leaders to the lowliest persons that trusted in their lies. He will beat down their vain presumptions of peace and prosperity, by showing that these false prophets, which had fed their vain hopes, should perish, and their false prophecies with them.

Is there any hope for America?

Yes, of course. But only if the American people meet God’s conditions. America must respond to God’s progressive punishments by asking for His forgiveness and turn back to Him with all their hearts. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but ultimately desires that all will come to repentance.

“Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?– Ezekiel 18:23

God is a God of justice and righteousness and so He calls evil and sin what they are. He holds people accountable accordingly. But God is also a God of mercy and love, and desires that all people — even the most sinful and wicked among us — repent and “turn from their wicked ways.” However, when the wicked do not repent and turn, God has no choice but to afflict them with His justice, although He takes no pleasure when they ultimately experience the consequences of their wickedness in death.

So America is at a crossroads: Will she repent of her wickedness and turn back to God, thereby averting any further judgment? Or, will she ignore God’s warning judgments and further incur His wrath until the United States of America (as we know it) ceases to exist?

Desperate Prayer is Effective Prayer.

I believe God is calling His holy remnant to fervently pray and intercede for this nation as never before.

“The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much.” – James 5:16

The key to effective praying is fervency. Are you willing to be fervent in your intercession? Perhaps through the multitude of our desperate prayers for America we can help turn the tide and save this nation from ultimate ruin.

May God bless America once again.

Continuing In The Son And The Father

“Therefore let that abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.” – 1 John 2:24

Pastor Luis Yosefus

More than ever before in Christian history, the true gospel of Jesus Christ [Messiah] is being distorted by anti-Christ’s who have entered the church and are deceiving many. The apostle John warned that some would even deny the divinity of Jesus as the Son of God:

“Whoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father…” – 1 John 2:23

Attacks on the Trinity.

You cannot have the assurance of true saving faith unless you accept the unalterable fact that Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus spoke of His divinity over-and-over again when He declared that “the Father [God] and I are One.”

The foundational Christian doctrine of the Trinity the mysterious triune nature of God (i.e. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit being One) has been attacked by anti-Christs almost since the inception of the church. Satan knows how vital this belief is to the faith of the New Testament believer. You cannot have the assurance of true saving faith unless you accept the unalterable fact that Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus spoke of His divinity over-and-over again when He declared that “the Father [God] and I are One.” In fact, the religious leaders of His day found these statements of our Lord so offensive that they wanted to kill Jesus for speaking blasphemy, and making Himself equal with God. Nevertheless, Jesus spoke the truth. If the religious crowd had not been so blinded by their man-made traditions, they would have understood.

In order for us Christians to “continue in the Son and the Father”, we must remain in the original teachings of Jesus and the early apostles who taught the foundational doctrine of the Trinity. We don’t worship three Gods, as some accuse us of, but one God in three persons. Christians are monotheistic in their beliefs, just as Jews and Muslims are monotheistic. One of the differences between Christians and Jews, for instance, is that we have a better understanding of God. We believe that God in the person of Jesus Christ came down from heaven and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. To follow preachers and churches who have abandoned this important truth of the original gospel is spiritually fatal and separates one from God.

False prophets and preachers abound.

Beware of many today who are preaching “another Jesus, and another gospel”
(2 Corinthians 11:4); they have neither the Son, nor the Father because they have not continued in the original teachings of Messiah. Instead, they are preaching a compromised version of the gospel being motivated by their desire to increase their popularity and financial support. Do not be fooled by the apparent success and size of their mega-churches and ministries, God will eventually judge these anti-Christs and their ministries will come tumbling down. True believers must remain loyal to Jesus Christ and the true gospel at all costs. Our very souls and eternal destinies depend on it.

For this reason, it is crucial that every believer study the Holy Scriptures for themselves and allow the Holy Spirit, “The Spirit of Truth”, to guide you into all truth (1 John 2:27).

He Who Accepts Jesus, Accepts God

Pastor Luis Yosefus

By the same token, he who rejects Jesus, rejects God. Jesus Himself acknowledged this in John 12:48-49…

“He that rejects Me, and receives not my words, has One that judges him…For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father [God] which has sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”

Many well-meaning people today profess to believe in God and even practice some type of religion. They may even call Him by a variety of names. But unless they are worshipping the one true God of the Bible, the Creator of heaven and earth, they are worshipping a false god. Those who claim to know God must also accept Jesus the Messiah whom God has sent.

“And this is life eternal, that they might know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ [Messiah] whom You have sent.” – John 17:3

No matter how devoted you may be to your religious belief system, if your religion rejects Jesus the Christ as God’s only Son, and the only true messenger, and the only atoning sacrifice for your sins, all your religious practices are in vain. If so, you are following a false way: a religion that will lead you to eternal death, rather than eternal life. Only by following the true way that Jesus offers can you be sure you are on the right spiritual path to God. Any other prophet or teaching that contradicts the gospel message of Jesus is deception.

Jesus warned, “And many false prophets shall arise, and deceive many.” – Matthew 24:11

You may be sincere in your devotion to the many false prophets and religions that exist today, but if you do not repent and come out of deception you will be lost for all eternity. God will not acquit you on the basis of your sincerity, but on whether you accepted His Son, Jesus Christ, as your Savior and Lord.

Won’t you trust in Jesus today?

Believe that He is truly the only way to God. Renounce your involvement in any other religion or false teachings, and invite Jesus to become the Savior and Lord of your life. After you do, find a good Bible-believing church to attend, and fellowship with other like-minded believers in Christ.

Comment from Donna: “I wholeheartedly agree! Today I was at work and I heard a man say that ‘all that mattered was that people believe in God.’ He said that ‘as long as a person believes in God, it was okay.’ The Bible states otherwise. In I John 2:22 it says that anyone who does not believe what Jesus Christ said about himself, is Anti-Christ.”

– – – – – – – – – – –

Comment from Pastor Luis: “Amen, Donna. The Bible tells us that even demons believe in Jesus (James 2:19-20), but of course we know that neither Satan, nor fallen angels, nor demons will ever be saved. So there must be more to salvation than simply ‘believing in God'”

Comment from Pastor Yousaf: “Praying for you! Jesus bless your ministry work. Amen. Your brother in Christ! – Pastor Yousaf.”

Heaven and Hell and Who Goes There

Jesus Christ taught that the majority of people
are headed for an eternal hell:

“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.”– Matthew 7:13 (NLT)

Tragically, there are “many” Jesus said, that are on the highway to hell. There is only one way into the Kingdom of God, and that is through Jesus Christ alone. Jesus also declared that unless a person is spiritually born again he cannot enter God’s Kingdom (John 3:3). Even some religious people are following the broad road to destruction because they have been deceived by false teachers and the false gospel of “easy believism.” and cheap grace.

But Jesus Christ and the early Christians preached the true gospel. They followed the narrow road that leads to heaven and eternal life. Although few people ever follow this narrow road, it is readily available to anyone who sincerely commits their life to Christ.

If you would like to be sure you’re following the (narrow) right road to God, order our free booklet, “Heaven and Hell and Who Goes There.” This eye-opening booklet will amaze you! Contrary to what many preachers falsely proclaim – that “getting saved is as easy as ABC”, you’ll discover what Jesus really taught about salvation and the cost of discipleship.

Because of the abundance of false prophets and preachers today, this is a message you won’t hear in most churches. But it’s a truthful message that needs to be heard by all who genuinely want to know the real Jesus of the Bible and enter God’s Kingdom.

So order your free copy of, “Heaven and Hell and Who Goes There.” It’s yours for the asking. Simply click here to request your copy.

COMMENT from Pastor Luis Yosefus: “It is true that “God is love.” But the true God has another side to His character besides “love.” He can also be provoked to wrath and will take vengeance against those who despise His commandments and exhaust His patience. He will in no wise leave the guilty and unrepentant unpunished.”

COMMENT from Pastor Godfrey Isaba: “Dear Pastor Luis, Greetings in Jesus’ name. Thank you for the testimony and the work of God you are commited. I am blessed and lifted up spiritually. We are praying for you and the ministry. You are a blessing to the body of Christ. I appreciate the love of God that is in you. I request for your prayers so that God may continue to save here in Kenya East Africa so that many souls may be reaped into the kingdom of God. I would also like to thank God for the sound biblical doctrine that the Lord  has put in you, servant of God. Today many people have changed the Word of God to suit their own ends. Yours in the Lord, Pastor, Godfrey Isaba.

Comment from Pastor Wassabi Sachae Mochoa: “Dear Pastor Luis: Receive our greetings from Singapore. We are praying diligently for you here in our ministry. May God give you all your needs. Its always a joy to hear from you, brother. Your friend, Pastor Wassabi Sachae Mochoa.
