Pray If You Want To


 
    "Pray if you want to!" 
  

Andy Rooney and Prayer... Keep  this going around 
the  globe. Read it and forward every time you receive 
it... We can't give up on this issue.

Andy Rooney says:
I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going 
to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in 
December.

I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and 
hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught 
his theory of evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not 
be endangered in any way because someone says 
a 30-second prayer before a football game.
So what's the big deal?

It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire 
Book of Acts.  They're just talking to a God they 
believe in and asking him to grant safety to the 
players on the field and the fans going home from 
the game.

But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America, 
and Canada,  countries founded on Christian  
principles.  According to our very own phone 
book, Christian churches outnumber all others 
better than 200-to-1.  So what would you expect -- 
Somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem,
I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.
 
If  I went to a soccer game in Baghdad,
I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China,
I would expect to hear someone pray to
Buddha.  And I  wouldn't be offended.  
It wouldn't bother me one bit.
 
When in Rome  ..... But what about the atheists?  
Is another argument. What about  them?

Nobody is asking them to be baptized.  We're not 
going to pass the collection plate.  Just humor us 
for 30 seconds.  If that's asking too much, bring a 
Walkman or a pair of ear plugs.  Go to the bathroom.  
Visit the concession stand.  Call your lawyer! Or, 
just exercise their right to leave this country!

Unfortunately, one or two will call their lawyer.  One 
or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do.  
I don't  think a short prayer at a football game is going 
to shake the world's foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other 
cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights.

Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before 
eating, to pray before we go to sleep.  Our Bible tells us 
to pray without ceasing.

Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling 
us to cease praying. God, help us.  And if that last sentence 
offends you, well, just sue me.

The silent majority has been silent too long.  It's time 
we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be 
heard that the vast majority doesn't care what they want!
It is time that the majority rules!

It's time we tell them, "You don't have to pray;  you 
don't have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don't 
have to believe in God or attend  services that honor 
Him.  That  is your right, and we will honor your 
right; but, you are no longer going to take our rights 
away.

We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN! 

God bless us one and all.  God bless America and 
Canada, despite all our faults, we are still the two 
greatest nations of all.  God bless our service men 
who are fighting to protect our right to pray and 
worship God.  Let's make this the year the silent 
majority is heard and we put God back as the 
foundation of our families and institutions. And 
our military forces come home from all the wars.

Keep looking  up. Your Redeemer Draws Nigh. 
If you agree with this, please pass it on. If not delete it. 
  
BUT REMEMBER, SHOULD YOU DELETE  IT, that's one 
reason why this world is in the mess we're in now.
 
WE JUST SIT  BACK AND LET IT  HAPPEN!!

2 Chronicles 7:14


First:  There is an Elect of who are genuinely Following Jesus Christ and shining The Light of Christ in the face of Darkness; however, the worst that the Elect actually faces are the many who profess Christ; but do not Love Christ First. 

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
 

This is a Very Extremely important verse.  First:  It is GOD speaking, and GOD cannot lie - Numbers 23:19 / Hebrews 6:18 / Titus 1:2.  Second: Concerning this particular verse, when praying there is absolutely not a necessity to ask for GOD's Will to be done - because GOD is Personally speaking and all that He is saying is His Will.  Third:  GOD is presenting a condition - which is His Condition, and shall thereby be followed to the letter, without fail,  in order to be fulfilled.  Thereby, 2 Chronicles 7:14 is not a condition of man, or by man; but directly from GOD Himself.  Fourth: Concerning the following message and Scriptural references, it is important to note that the Church is Not the House of GOD.  The Church is whosoever believes in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. 



"My people, which are called by My Name:  John 14: 6 must be first mentioned, for no man cometh unto God the Father except by the Son of GOD.  Ephesians 1:5 and Ephesians 2:13-19 - Whosoever believes in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, GOD adopts them into His Family. / 1 Corinthians 12: 13 - The Holy Spirit baptizes whosoever believes in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior into The Body of Christ. /  Furthermore, Whosoever believes in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior is The Bride of Christ: 2 Corinthians 11: 2; Ephesians 5: 23-33.  

Thereby, whosoever believes in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, are of the Family of GOD, are the Body of Christ, and are the Brides of Christ, and are therefore without any doubt,  "My people, which are called by My Name".  PERIOD.  Furthermore, regardless of who all gathers together, it is only the Body of Christ unto whom GOD shall be looking upon, because GOD Said, "My people, which are called by My Name". Now indeed, it must be noted that there shall be those who come and who are not saved; but they must come on their own, and Not to be invited.   

1 Corinthians Chapter 5 - This chapter is overall neglected in most 'churches' today.  Opening the doors of GOD's HOUSE, likened to going forth and speaking to crowds in rally's or public gatherings is one thing; but who is invited or walks off the street into GOD's HOUSE, as well as those who are allowed to keep returning to GOD's HOUSE is a totally different matter.  Matthew 21: 12-13 / Mark 11: 15-17 / Luke 19: 45,46 / John 2: 14-16.  And these were just moneychangers.  But as well, in 1 Corinthians Chapter 5, Paul points out several other abominations; but what Paul points out are a few examples - because any and all abominations are not allowed in GOD'S HOUSE.  It is not our house - IT IS GOD'S HOUSE.  Therefore, it is the duty of the Body of Christ to give the ungodly two choices:  Jesus or Leave.  PERIOD.  Winning souls to Christ is of primary importance - but allowing sin the opportunity to sow tares amongst the wheat is another matter - and should be dealt with as stated in 1 Corinthians Chapter 5.  There's also several Old Testament Scriptures in which GOD did not want the Israelites to yoke with other peoples, tribes or Nations.


We are to "Humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face".  When and Where the Body of Christ gathers together, must be in humbleness.  They can be well dressed, dressed in rags, and even in sackcloth and ashes.  These are mentioned in Scripture, and are not to be viewed negatively or to receive pointing fingers - However - it is the HEART that GOD is looking upon.  And the prayer must be of GODLY Remorse and Sorrow.  Of which there are numerous abuses, violations, and ungodliness which can be presented unto GOD; but first and foremost, the Body of Christ is to be Remorseful concerning the legalization of Sodomy, Bestiality, Pedophilia and Abortion - above all things.  For these are the most heinous of abominations in GOD's Eyes, and America has done what was done in the Days of Noah and in Sodom & Gomorrah.  In return, Notice what GOD DID in Genesis Chapters 6 and 19!!! 


"And turn away from their wicked ways".  James 2: 14-26:  Works is ACTION.  Since 1973, over 60 million babies have been murdered.  Abortion should not be legal - where is the ACTION?  What do we need? 65 million, 70 million, 100 million aborted babies before there is a call to Action?  In 1980, the US Supreme Court removed The Ten Commandments from Public Schools.  GOD's LAW, which GOD HIMSELF Personally wrote upon two tablets of stone with HIS OWN FINGER.  The Ten Commandments summarize moral law. The US Constitution is an extended outline of GOD's Commandments, and is extremely necessary unto Law and Order. Thereby The Ten Commandments must be returned to our Schools.  So, how many more law enforcement must die in the line of duty?     
And how much should the crime rate percentage increase before the Body of Christ does anything?  Where's the ACTION?  Since 2004 a total of 19 States and Washington DC have legalized same sex marriage, the US Supreme Court has Constitutionalized sexual preference - which includes Bestiality and Pedophilia - and Common Core Curriculum is teaching our youth that these sexual perversions, and Abortion are acceptable.  

So, how many States need to legalize same sex marriage - and how many souls of our youth need to be lost before the Body of Christ does something about it?  Where's the ACTION? 


Thereby, in order to "turn away from their wicked ways" the Body of Christ, regardless of the number and regardless of what we shall face, must step forward and example our GODLY Remorse with ACTION.  Our ACTION can be peaceful; but in no regards back down nor back away from those who seek to bring violence upon us.  And in return for our ACTION, GOD Himself Said, "Then shall I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.  Whose Land?  The Land that the Body of Christ lives in.  The Body of Christ who lives in America can only come to GOD concerning America.  Not another Nation.  For it is as well up to those of other Nations to come before GOD as stated in 2 Chronicles 7:14.  For GOD did not say, 'and heal the earth, or heal the world, or heal every other nation'.  GOD HIMSELF said, "will heal their LAND - which is the Country or Nation where the Body of Christ lives, who come before GOD.


Naturally, it is foremost in many minds that we are indeed in End Times, or at least very close to End Times.  And indeed there are prophetical events occurring worldwide, weather conditions getting worse, America is going bankrupt unto total economical collapse, as well as there is the last of four Blood Red Moons on September 28th, 2015 to consider.  Of course there is much more; but the bottom line is all hell is fixing to break loose.  Worse, the vast majority is continuing to place the solution in the hands of fellow creation.  
However, not any Political or Organized group, including the massive petitions has brought any solution to what has befallen us.  In fact, it must be noted that GOD has not answered one single, solitary prayer at a National Level.  And there has been at least, and without exaggeration a trillion prayers unto GOD concerning America.  Yes, we do need to pray for the souls of those in positions of authority; but continuing to pray for the Nation, when GOD IS NOT answering a single prayer is rather foolish.  Why pray amiss and justify what is amiss?  There's not a Scripture offering such justification. 


Almighty, Sovereign Creator GOD is our ONE and Only Solution.  We have not yet reached the point where Tribulation shall begin, nor have we reached the point where GOD shall not answer our prayers; but we have reached the point where on a National Level, GOD has Turned HIS Head.  Which should be blatantly obvious!   Things sure ain't anywhere close to getting better; but instead Worse is actually multiplying.  GOD can, at this point in our history pause and even push back Prophecies - the extent of the healing is up to GOD - But, GOD sure ain't going to sit around and wait!  Mankind has a major problem with procrastination, as well as looking unto fellow creation to solve what is exceedingly exceeding dramatic issues.
  
An additional problem mankind has is to say, "The end is coming anyway, or Jesus is soon coming, so why do anything about it".  And the false doctrine of "the rapture" has contributed to the apathy of the Christian community... "I'm "saved" and I don't worry about hard times, Jesus will rescue me". What makes this generation of Christians think they are better than all the martyrs who have died for God's Kingdom? 
Acts 5:29, when Peter said, "We ought to obey GOD rather than men" - At this point in our history, we should be obeying GOD by doing what He Says - HELLO - 2 Chronicles 7:14.  Thereby, the Body of Christ must put 100% FAITH in GOD, and Only GOD.  It's sort of like when we sit in a chair or on a bench - we have 100% Faith that the man made chair or bench will not collapse.  In fact, the depths of our Faith is of such that we automatically sit down and don't give it a second thought.  However, once our weight is upon the man made chair or bench, and it collapses - the look on our faces is NOT one of shock - it is of Shattered Faith.  Thereby, it is now time in our history to forget what is of creation and put 100% FAITH in GOD - and step forward. 


Now, since what we primarily face is of a State and especially Federal origin, merely gathering together in our homes, neighborhoods and communities - although a good basic and essential start - is still not in compliance to what GOD is saying for us to do in 2 Chronicles 7:14.  We have to go to the source.  Living in America does give us the open door to practically get everything resolved at a State level.  For all the State Legislators have to do is rebuke, annul, abolish, etc. much of what the Federal Government has mandated.  And regardless of our numbers, it is necessary that we do go to our State Capitols - and with haste, for we are running out of time.  Notice what Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 25, taking heed to verse 43, "sick and in prison and you visited me not".  Gathering together in our homes, churches, or places of employment and praying for, or giving donations for one who is sick or in prison is not the same as VISITING.  Nor is sending emails, mail, or calling on the phone VISITING.  To visit is translated - GO - Journey to, Walk to.  Likewise in Matthew 28: 19, 20 Jesus Commands us to Go forth and Teach - Teaching to observe ALL THINGS whatsoever Jesus has Commanded.  And unlike many countries on GOD's Earth, we do have a Constitution that if and when necessary:   "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government" /  "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security". 


When we do gather together in the name of Jesus, whatever does happen - GOD Shall be our Shield - For the Power of the Cross is The Power of GOD!  However, if we do not for whatever reason follow 2 Chronicles 7:14 - As far as the United States is concerned, the Bottom Line is: A Generation ago, Abortion was legalized - we had the right to stop that and didn't.  Seven years later GOD's Commandments were removed from schools - and we had the right to stop it, and didn't.  And in just ten short years, we have had the right to stop the legalization of Sodomy, same sex marriage, and sexual perversion - and have thus far not done a thing to stop it.  And now, when GOD'S Wrath is certainly upon us - we don't follow the Word of GOD, Spoken directly from GOD - which, for The sake of Grace shall give unto us more time to REPENT.

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God... 1 Peter 4:17
