The Greatest Threat to America’s National Security

No “new law” will protect America from what is coming.
More restrictions on guns won’t stop what is coming.
Less restrictions on guns won’t stop what is coming.

Closing the borders won’t prevent it.
Refusing refugee’s won’t avert it.
More education on sharia law or the Muslim community will not save America from what is coming.

The ONLY thing that will protect America from what is coming is RETURNING to the commands of God; returning to a nation dedicated unto him.

The SINGLE GREATEST threat to America’s national security is LIVING IN STARK CONTRAST TO HOW THE WORD OF GOD SAYS TO LIVE.

Look at what God says a nation will look like who does NOT follow him with their whole hearts…

Deuteronomy 28:15 & 43 (NIV) If you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you… The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lowerHe will be the head, but you will be the tail.

Sounding familiar yet? Wait…

God’s judgments get more detailed for the nation who leaves their roots.

Deuteronomy 28:25 (NIV) The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven

Deuteronomy 28:49-50 (NIV) The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young.

A nation from FAR away? A nation whose language we don’t understand? A fierce looking nation with no respect for even the old or young? Our ENEMIES?

And WHY would God allow all of these things to happen? Once again…

Deuteronomy 28:15 (NIV) If you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you… all these curses will come on you and overtake you.

I want to make this very clear. What we are seeing today in America is the start of God’s Judgment for a nation who once loved and served Him. And as the old saying goes, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

The SINGLE greatest threat to America’s national security is not THE EMP bomb, a solar flare, a cyber-attack or the grid collapsing in any magnitude. It’s not the refugee crisis or ISIS infiltrating our southern borders. It isn’t North Korea’s outlandish threats or the Iran nuclear deal being passed, giving them a clear path to develop nuclear weapons.

The SINGLE greatest threat to America’s National Security is, once again… Living in stark contrast to how our God says to live!

GOD will protect a nation who lives for Him.
HE will uplift and protect the nation that lives for Him!!!
GOD WILL put a canopy of protection over the countries that serve Him! A canopy that NO man can break!

No enemy can penetrate the canopy of God’s protection if we are living for HIM!!

I DON’T CARE what ISIS, AL QAEDA, North Korea, Iran, Russia, or China WANTS to do. They will have to deal with GOD!!

Look at what God says a nation will look like who DOES follow him with their whole hearts:

Deuteronomy 28 (NIV)

Blessings for Obedience

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven…

God will uphold the national security of a country living for Him! No enemy can penetrate the canopy of God’s protection over America if we are living for HIM!!

So, I end with this…

Judgment is coming to America unless America radically repents and turns back to God and His ways. It’s time to go back into our prayer closets. It’s time to seek God again with ALL of our hearts.

Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

It’s not time for compromise! It’s not time for half hearted obedience! It’s time to seek God with EVERY fiber of our being!

Let’s pray church…

There Is Joy In The Morning

Revival Rocks Morningside with Pastor John Kilpatrick

Pastor John Kilpatrick knows revival!  In the spirit-led, Wednesday night service on Grace Street, Pastor Kilpatrick shared God’s Word on His Blessings and the spiritual attacks that will most likely take place before them.

“So many are going through some really hard stuff,” he began in his riveting sermon.   When the devil attacks you, he wants you to get offended with God!”

Explaining to the crowd that it is right before an amazing blessing from God that the devil will attack.

“The devil will only stir against you when he sees that something significant is going to happen to you”, Pastor Kilpatrick advised, “Hunker down, hang on and wait for what God has in store for you!  Even Satan knows that he cannot stop the blessings that God has in store for you but, he can try to spoil it!”

This inspirational service brought the message of spiritual attack to light, bringing hope of the inevitable blessings and calling on all of our lives.

“I realize that when an attack ends I will be stronger, more effective and more resourceful in the kingdom than ever before. Don’t hold on to the trial.  It may be a week or a month or maybe even a year but every trial has a shelf life .  When it’s over, it’s OVER!”

“You got what you needed tonight!” exclaimed Pastor Jim as the service came to a close. “Miracles are going to happen.  God has something so special for us!  Your deliverance came tonight.  Can you feel it?”

The spirit of revival is indeed at Morningside!   AMEN!

Our Personal Shemitah (Pt. 1)

We’ve heard a lot of teaching from Rabbi Cahn and others about this Shemitah year that we are in right now, and most of it is focused on the nations of the world and how they will fare in the End Times based on their actions concerning the things of God.

But have you considered that this Shemitah year is also applied to what’s going on in your heart and life?  This is not only a global initiative, it is individual as well.

It’s a time that God gave us to get back in right standing because if we don’t, the judgment comes.  If our hearts are right, it could be a time of great blessing!  The good news is that judgment belongs to the Lord and He is kind and good to those who are working out their salvation.  This life in Christ is not a spectator sport, it is active involvement in God’s plan for redemption, fulfilling the reason we are here.  Continue reading

Counting My Blessings!

One thing I know for sure is that sin has consequences. I’m urging you to not make the same mistakes I did. I have had to deal with sin’s consequences in my body.

For me those consequences showed up as Hepatitis C and all the side effects of this horrible disease. Plus, my five abortions ended in my not being able to later have children. My last aborted baby had not been totally removed and resulted in a life-threatening infection. I had to have an emergency hysterectomy.

I have never cried more tears than I have these last few months. I have never allowed God to deal with me in a sweet loving way like I have recently. I always felt I didn’t deserve it. I felt so unworthy. What my body has suffered over the years is because of my own wrong doing – bad choices. Continue reading

“Miracle” Baby Found In Trash Dumpster

Doctors are calling a “miracle” a maintenance worker’s discovery of a baby in a trash dumpster.

Carlos Michel said that he thought he was hearing the sound of an animal dying in a dumpster at the Reverse at Windmill Lakes apartment complex.  He decided to investigate and discovered a newborn boy, with the umbilical cord still attached, inside a plastic garbage bag.

Michel immediately checked for breath sounds and found the child was still alive.  He placed him inside his heated truck and warmed the boy until he began to react like a normal baby.  He kept him safe until emergency personnel arrived on the scene.

Doctors say he saved the child’s life.

Police investigators found a 16-year-old woman in a nearby apartment who admitted bagging up the baby and throwing it in the dumpster.  Police gave no details why the teen abandoned her baby in that manner but said she was taken to a local hospital.

Child Protective Services will care for the baby.  The Harris County District Attorney’s office has not said if they will be filing charges against the mother.

Hollywood Actress Says God Honors Obedience

A Hollywood actress says that God has always honored her following the Holy Spirit when He led her to turn down certain movie roles.

Meagan Good said that her Christian beliefs have led her to turn down some major movie roles but that God has always delivered.

“I have my parameters of what I feel in my spirit is appropriate,” Good told the LA Times. “There have been times where it’s been tough because it’s something I really wanted, but the nudity would be exploitative and I’d lose the opportunity, but what I’ve found is that the more I stick to my convictions, the more God sticks to his promises. When I would lose something, something better would come up than what I turned down. And I’ve been able to pay my bills doing nothing else since I was 13.”

Good is married to Preacher DeVon Franklin and strongly believes that you can maintain your Christian faith and be successful in Hollywood.

“We believe that both can come together and one can be used to promote the other, using what we do in the business to promote the kingdom,” Good said.

Reflections on Thankfulness

As I reflect on this past year, I couldn’t be more thankful for my station in life which includes my amazing marriage, motherhood and ministry.  I have been so blessed in this life and love these scriptures that talk about blessing:

Matthew 5:2-12

And opening His mouth He began to teach them, saying, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me. “Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Choose Thankfulness!

No matter what your station in life, no matter your situation or your circumstance, there is always something to be thankful for. In fact, thankfulness is a choice that we make each moment of our lives as we live in this fallen world and wait for the final redemption from it.

The truth that we must all get down deep into our souls is that Jesus has already redeemed us, if we believe in Him and receive Him as our Lord and Savior. When this world and its problems challenge our sense of eternal well-being, the scriptures provide all the answers we need to confront and overcome the lies of the enemy.

Today, I am so thankful for the Word of God and its supernatural ability to keep us in Times of Trouble in this world. Ephesians 6:17 describes the Word of God as the Sword of the Spirit with which we can fight and be able to stand, and having done all…. Stand! Continue reading
