This past year, God opened the door for me to speak in the U.S. Capitol building, to a gathering of members of Congress and leaders of faith, and several presidential candidates. I was introduced by Mike Huckabee who called for Americans to read The Harbinger. The following is an excerpt of what I shared – I pray it encourages you…and to be strong.
THE SMILES OF HEAVEN
Word for the Month & for Wednesday, April 1
Scripture: Psalm 38:1
See Message: Message To America
“Only two civilizations in human history came into existence dedicated from conception to the will and purposes of God. The first was called ‘Israel.’ And the second was called ‘America.’ America was to be a city on a hill, a light to the world – from the words of the Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth. And God blessed this nation as no nation has ever been blessed to unparalleled heights of prosperity and power.
On America’s first day came a prophetic warning. It was this: “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself hath ordained.” In other words, if America ever turns away from God, if it ever disregards the Word and ways of God, then the smiles of heaven, the blessings of God, will be removed from this land.
We stand tonight on Capitol Hill in the city named after the one who gave that prophetic warning to ask: Can a nation drive out the name of God from its public squares, and the Word of God from its schools, and the ways of God from its culture – and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain? Can the blood of fifty million unborn children cry out to Heaven from this land and the smiles of Heaven still remain?
Members of Congress, can a government call evil good and good evil and forge laws that war against the laws of the Almighty and the smiles of Heaven still remain? Supreme Court Justices – can you strike down the statutes of the Almighty and overturn the judgments of the Most High and still expect the smiles of Heaven to remain? And Mr. President, can you place your left hand on the Word of God to assume your office and then with your right hand sign laws that break the very Word upon which you swore and still expect the smiles of Heaven to remain?
The voice of our first president cries out to us and answers – No, you cannot do so and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain on this land…. Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall. America has risen by the hand of God, and without that hand it cannot endure.
The voice of God cries out: “Return America, and I will have mercy on you.” And tonight we bear witness from Capitol Hill that the warning of our first president is true. And that our hope is not in the White House, not in the Supreme Court, not in the Capitol, not in Wall Street, or any other thing. Our hope is in the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Our Hope is in Yeshua Ha Mashiach – Jesus the Messiah – the same yesterday, today and forever – to Him alone was this nation dedicated – and in Him alone lies its salvation….
Let the will of God be done. Let the name of God be lifted up. And let the city on the hill shine again with the light of the fire of the glory of the living God – in the name of Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah, the Light of this World – The Glory of Israel – and the hope of these United States of America. So help us God…
Thank you all for your prayers for me, and please keep praying for the Lord to open His doors to proclaim His truth. And you, my friend, be strong, bold, and victorious this month. And may the Lord greatly bless you as you do.
Your brother and co-laborer
in His love and service,
