ALL ACROSS AMERICA, PEOPLE ARE PRAYING!
By Pamela Rae Schuffert, presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical, Christian perspective
AMERICA IS IN TROUBLE. And it doesn't look like it it is going to go away any time soon, either. In fact, it won't. And many Americans will suffer in the coming times of tribulation and crisis...and CHRISTIANS are not exempt! IF you live in this nation, crisis will come to YOU as well.
However, every Christian across America also KNOWS the greater truth, that OUR GOD IS GREATER than ANY crisis our nation can encounter! People of faith do not wilt when trouble comes. Rather, by FAITH they RISE TO THE OCCASION, rather then sinking down in despair. Every Christian is called to be MORE THAN A CONQUEROR!
The Bible declares that in these end times, God's people will be STRONG and do great exploits for His glory! And WHO will give them this mighty strength to OVERCOME? THE HOLY SPIRIT!
"But YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER after that the HOLY SPIRIT is come upon YOU..." Jesus promised His disciples. Jesus also promised that His followers would perform ever GREATER works and miracles than ever before, because He was going to the Father.
The divine Holy Spirit was then sent to earth when Christ ascended and returned to the right hand of God, bestowing POWER upon the followers of Jesus Christ. In every generation. God sends the power of the Holy Spirit into the hearts and lives of every believer, bringing HEALING, MIRACLES, WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT, and filling God's people with the life-changing TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST to boldly proclaim to a lost and dying world around us.
MANY PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN GREAT FEAR OF THE TIMES TO COME. (And YOU could be one of them!)
But Jesus Christ has declared repeatedly to His chosen people, "FEAR NOT, FOR I AM WITH YOU!" The Bible further declares, "God has NOT given US a spirit of FEAR, but of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND MIND."
The Holy Spirit gives us POWER! He fills us with the mighty LOVE OF GOD that drives away that demon of fear. And God's power also saves every Christian from a mind filled with fear, doubt, and confusion.
FEAR IS AN ENEMY TO BE OVERCOME AND DEFEATED IN THE LIFE OF EVERY CHRISTIAN!
Personally, I REFUSE to live a life driven by fear and despair and a sense of hopelessness. Life is TOO SHORT to be lived in bondage to negative thoughts and emotions!
Jesus our eternal Savior came to give us LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY. He came to bring us JOY and strength to face another day with hope.
Throughout the many years of my Christian walk, filled at times with many challenges, dangers, even great loss, and suffering for His sake, I have refused to bow to the demon of FEAR and the sense of hopelessness it brings.
Jesus Christ is MY VICTORY!
Because of my investigative journalism and research throughout the years, I am in a position to know that America faces great tragedies and hardships. MILLIONS OF AMERICANS may suffer, and many may even die, with what is to come to this nation. Persecution of the saints, famine, war, earthquakes, oppression and more are coming to this nation. And some of this MUST COME FOR JUDGMENT as well.
But for the genuine CHRISTIAN, suffering is nothing new! Christians have suffered persecution and martyrdom from the beginning of God's kingdom on earth with Jesus Christ. And DEATH must come to every mortal on the face of the earth someday, saint and sinner alike.
HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST, not one Believer needs to fear DEATH! Jesus suffered and died on the cross to bear the penalty of our sins, DEATH, so that WE MIGHT LIVE FOREVER! And then, HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, bringing LIFE AND HOPE TO ALL WHO BELIEVE.
How wonderful that EVERY BELIEVER can face the future filled with PEACE and calm assurance that BECAUSE OF JESUS, we can endure and overcome whatever the future holds for each one of His beloved children.
Some of you out there may be saying skeptically, "Well, it may be EASY for YOU to say, Pam, but if you ONLY KNEW MY PROBLEMS....!"
Ha ha ha! And if you ONLY KNEW MINE!
A recent merchant error causing my bank account to be overdrawn by well over over one hundred dollars...PLUS recently losing my only source of income when a patient I provided care for had to be rushed to the emergency room and now hospitalized indefinitely...FINALLY resulting in several trips now to the pawn shop just to obtain money for food and gas.
And NOW as a result, my dear friend and cancer patient Sylvia is now lacking critically needed multivitamins and other essential health foods for her daily care, as a result of all of the above. And yes, these things come to both the just and the unjust in this world we live in.
BUT I REFUSE TO YIELD TO DESPAIR, HOPELESSNESS, DISCOURAGEMENT AND DEFEAT! (And so does Sylvia, a powerful warrior of mighty faith in God.)
Instead, I am PRAISING GOD, and choosing to laugh at my circumstances, KNOWING that my Father in Heaven is BIGGER THAN ALL MY PROBLEMS!
Our problems in this world are indeed but temporal, and they shall all pass away as God's mercy and provision lifts us up from every crisis we may face in this world.
Fellow Christian, I encourage you to take the time to pray and spend time in the presence of God, meditating on His Word, and finding PEACE and COMFORT and HOPE and FREEDOM FROM FEAR.
Christ Jesus has come into your life to bring VICTORY!
Let His victory over this dark world, become YOURS TODAY. You will never be the same, when you give your problems to Him and SPEND TIME IN HIS WONDERFUL PRESENCE.
Frankly, I no longer spend time worrying about "where America is going." End-Time Bible prophecy will be fulfilled, the nations will be judged...and that includes AMERICA.
Personally, I cannot save America...I cannot change America...ONLY JESUS AND HIS GRACE CAN.
However, as long as I know where I AM GOING someday, that is ALL THAT MATTERS ETERNALLY! Ultimately, I can only be responsible for MYSELF and where I AM GOING. And the same is true for YOU.
America may burn someday under the fiery judgment of God for sin...BUT THANKFULLY GOD'S PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO PERISH ETERNALLY!
Honestly, is any Christian living in America foolish enough to believe that AMERICA WILL NOT BE JUDGED BY A RIGHTEOUS GOD???
There is a popular televangelist, not from the USA, who is actually preaching that "GOD WILL NOT JUDGE AMERICA!" Blasphemy! Heresy!
This televangelist will find NO BASIS for this heresy in the WORD OF GOD. ALL OF THE SINS that caused a just and holy God to judge ancient ISRAEL and JUDAH, can be found in far greater abundance IN AMERICA.
Does Almighty God CHANGE to suit our whims??? NEVER!
"I AM THE LORD: I CHANGE NOT!"
God will JUDGE AMERICA for every drop of innocent blood shed throughout the ABORTION CLINICS OF AMERICA. Over 50 MILLION innocent children have been butchered because of ABORTION in the USA, since ROE VS WADE.
God will JUDGE AMERICA for the crimes against humanity committed in numerous foreign nations for our unjust wars, regime changes and hegemony agendas that have destroyed the lives of MILLIONS.
God will JUDGE AMERICA for turning from Him, to worship abominations, as with the numerous SATANISTS THROUGHOUT AMERICA. Hundreds of thousands of innocent victims are abducted and brutally raped, tortured and murdered on the satanic altars of America annually.
When America and her leaders worshiped, feared and served the Living God of the Bible and upheld His commandments, MERCY and BLESSING was written over this nation.
Thank God, CHRISTIANS will not be judged with the world and the wicked.
As Jesus Himself said, "When you see ALL THESE THINGS COME TO PASS, REJOICE! FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR!"
get RID of your fears,
and instead rejoice that Jesus has promised
SOMETHING BETTER FOR HIS PEOPLE,
than the judgments that MUST come
to an unrepentant world...
and to AMERICA...
"For God has not destined us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through Jesus Christ."
THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME
NOR FINAL RESTING PLACE!
"I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU,
SO THAT WHERE I AM,
YE MAY BE ALSO."
