The thief [Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. - John 10:10

John 8:44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

 

The USA is living in dark, perilous times. The “Hedge of Protection” and blessings from God was torn down by our own society.  For years we have embraced the secular teachings of humanism (Idolatry), while removing the unfailing truths of God Word and standard of morality from our society.

 

Satan is well pleased by our aggression towards God within this nation. Our societal behaviors fit very nicely within his plan to dishonor and rob God of His glory.  Blindly, we are falling into the same trap of obstinate betrayal that destroyed Israel and scattered its remnant for 2,000 years.  Satan is very clever and the father of lies. He poses as an angel of light as he continues to guide his faithful onto the “Wide Path” that will lead to the destruction of our country.

 

The strategy is rather straightforward and very effective.  His armies of demons are championing a secular utopia which is destroying the very fabric our core values. The misguided souls within this nation herald Satan’s worship by this daily blood sacrifice of 4,000 unborn children every single day.  The battle plan is well into execution and the casualties of indifferent and pathetic believers lay along the path of destruction – slain without even knowing that they are at war.

 

How in the world did we get to this wicked state?  What can we do?  Is there any hope?

 

To answer those questions, one needs to understand our adversary so we can direct the counter attack that is most effective in tearing down strongholds.

 

Satan Comes to Steal:

 

As stated within God’s Word, Satan is liar and the father of lies.  Satan began execution of his plan of attack in the early 1900’s by the “Scope Monkey Trial” and the evolution movement within our nation’s classrooms.  The fossil tooth that was held up during that trial as proof of evolution was later found to be that of an extinct pig.  Many other well documented hoaxes such as Neanderthal man, Peking man, Nebraska man, and Lucy made their way to the center stage – stealing from our children the realities of God’s creation through his lies of deception.

 

In 1947, Satan stole again from our citizens by tearing God out from our Government under the guise of civil liberties (AKA Judicial Tyranny) by the Supreme Court “Separation of Church & State” ruling.  In subsequent years, our children were robbed again by Satan as he influenced the members of the Supreme Court to remove God from our classrooms.

 

Today, we are allowing Satan to blatantly deny ALL our citizens the ability to express their faith within any public forum out of fear of reprisal, reprimand, job loss, harassment, arrest and in the case of a Philadelphia preacher, Federal prosecution and conviction.  Furthermore, we are allowing the demons of Hell to unashamedly indoctrinate our children into every perverse teaching within our education system. It is in these places where God is forbidden and where the seeds of deception are planted to produce the offspring for Satan’s kingdom that we are witnessing today.

 

Satan Comes to Kill:

 

Where do I begin?  The second stage of the battle is the death of our people.  Spiritual and physical death is the fruit that Satan offers his followers.

 

John 3:18-20

18Whoever believes in him [Jesus] is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: 19Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

 

We have allowed our nation and our children to be taken captive by the doctrine of lies and by the false light of secular humanism (idolatry).  Our society is witnessing the fruits of death brought forth by Satan as we witness:

 

·         The 50-million abortions committed on our soil by the false light of “Choice”

·         Over 25% of our teenage children, who are now carriers of a Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD); and by the 25% of adults in NYC who are carriers of Herpes; by the false light of “exploring ones sexuality”.

·         The forcing of our children into the indoctrination of alternative lifestyle teachings within the classroom – as early as kindergarten, by the false light of “tolerance and diversity”.

·         The increase in murder and violent crimes originating from our children, where God and conscience is seared over like an iron, and where the gangs of the streets define their value systems of many of our youth.  These children are being brought up on the streets void of a parental figure, by the false light of “no fault divorce and parental abandonment”.

·         The killing of our citizens.  Each year more Americans within this country are killed by the hands of illegal aliens than all the troops kills in Afghanistan and Iraq combined since the war began, by the false light of “amnesty and compassion”.

 

Satan Comes to Destroy:

 

This is the final stage where we find ourselves today.  Our enemies are increasing on all sides and our nation is heavily at risk.  Our sovereignty is being taken away by the flood of illegal immigration.  Our economy is being devastated.  Our leadership is corrupt and self serving as they seek favor by the special interest groups who line their pockets.  Our Judicial Branch is operating under secular relativism and has overstepped it authority by legislating at the bench. Our nation’s two-party system is heavily divided, taking the opinions of our citizens along Party lines.  Our land is cursed by the bloodletting of the unborn and is experiencing floods, natural, and manmade disasters on a regular basis.  Our families are being attacked by diseases and mental illnesses of all kinds and in ever increasing numbers.  Our food supply has and will continue to be at risk as the Hand of God’s judgment is being exacted upon our nation.

 

Our nation is being destroyed by our Sins, whose stench is reaching the “Throne of God”. This is the finale of Satan’s battle execution strategy.  All along and throughout these warnings, we are sitting back in melancholy disbelief – but too lazy to do anything in mass.

 

What Can We Do?

 

First and foremost, we need to know our enemy.  The enemies of God on this earthly plain are not the people caught up in sin – but the demons of this world who are influencing them.  The people caught up in sin are blind and non-discerning.  They just don’t understand the reality of their eternal state.  They are the walking dead, with no understanding that they are on the wide path to their own destruction.  To make matters worse, they love the darkness and hate the light (John 3:18-20).

 

John 1:1-5

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men [Jesus]. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

 

To counter the schemes of the Satan and his demons, the faithful must first engage in a counter offense at a spiritual level and on a large scale.

 

Ephesians 6:12

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

 

The key to this fight begins with unified prayer, fasting, and by crying out to the Lord on behalf of ourselves and our nation.

 

 

James 5:16

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

 

The word for “powerful” within the original Greek translation is “dynamos”, where we get the modern word “Dynamite”.  The word “effective” is equivalent to “results”.  Hence, our prayer produce “Powerful Results” as the Lord of the Universe tentatively listens to our pleas. 

 

1 Peter 3:12

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

 

Lastly, our prayers, when founded on the Word of God are the offensive weapon that is necessary to break down strongholds of the enemy.  It is the smart bomb that penetrates the enemy command and control center within his camp of operation.

 

Ephesians 6:17

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

This is a commitment by the faithful to travail for the lost and to attack the demons head-on by the power of the Holy Spirit through prayer and by the light of truth in His Word. To be effective, we need to evaluate our own lives first.  We cannot expect to enter the throne of God’s presence in prayer if we ourselves are living a life of sin.  We must bear the fruit of repentance and righteousness by the transformation of our lives if we are to lift the burden of our people to God.

 

 

The Prayer for National Repentance

 

Dear Father in Heaven,

 

I humbly come before your throne for the plea of our nation.  We are all guilty of betraying you by allowing Satan’s influence to dominate our society.  The fruit of our disobedience has resulted in this current generation being blinded to the light of your truth. Many citizens are self-centered, prideful, perverse, hating that which is good, promoting that which is evil, and persecuting those of moral character and integrity. 

 

Many leader of the church have compromised the truth of your Word to embrace the lies of the evil one – teaching their flock the doctrine of Satan under the guise of tolerance and acceptance.  They have forfeited your “Spirit of Discernment” in order to appear acceptable and non-judgmental – unknowingly following after false teachings and doctrines.  Many refuse to speak with BOLDNESS your truth and have sold you out as Judas did with the 30-pieces of silver; but in our case, we have betrayed you for the status of “Not for Profit”. Dear Father in heaven, I beg you to chase out the moneychangers within your house, for they are blind leaders of the blind and desperately lost without your intevention!

 

As you said in your Word, “He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it.” (Proverbs 11:27)  That is precisely the state of America today.  By embracing Satan’s lies we have taken into our arms the hot coals of your judgment that is being executed on our people and our land today. The crimes of abortion, sexual deviancy, violence, pride, and indifference permeate our land. 

 

As with the “Prodigal Son”, we have left the safety of your household and the hedge of your protection to engage in lifestyles that are destroying our society.  Our enemies have infiltrated our streets; the crops and fruit of the land are cursed; our livestock are diseased; natural and man-made disasters are increasing; our leadership is bitterly divided; our military worn down; perversion and violence now dominate our youth; and organizations are rising up like the ACLU who continues to persecute the church. As with the “Prodigal Son”, we have wasted away your blessings and are wallowing in our own filth – starving and utterly cast down; a reprobate of nations.

 

Yet, even in our most despicable state, your eyes constantly scan the horizon, waiting and hoping, as the “Prodigal Son’s” father did -- that we would come to our senses and return to you.  Father in heaven, we are not even worthy to be slaves in your kingdom.  Our sin is ever before you and we are utterly and entirely sinful. But I know that there is still hope, for you said “If my people who are called by my name [the returning remnant], will 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.

 

Lord, it is the faithful prayers of the righteous that you listen to intently.  It is those that seek your face daily, who are crying out to you on behalf of our nation that you hear.  Please Father, you have promised by your Word which cannot be broken that – “Greater is He [The Spirit of God] that is in us than he [Satan] that is in the world”.  Therefore, show yourself strong to your faithful.  Rain down the blessings of the Holy Spirit in such a powerful manner that the FIRE of revival would spread across this nation like a tsunami. Open the eyes of the spiritually blind so that they would see their sin as through your eyes.  

 

Create a thousand beacons of light across this nation, as centers of great revival and let the great awakening begin.  Using the analogy of the “Parable of the Sower”, please prepare the ground for revival by removing the stones and thorns that prevent your seed of truth from growing and bearing fruit.  Send forth your angels to guard against the birds of the air; taken them captive as they attempt to steal the seed of truth within the hearts of the receivers.  Lord, maximize the fruitfulness of the land to accept your seed by convicting the hearts of our citizens before the Word of truth is ever spoken. Let this revival be greater than any other in magnitude since the world began as you prepare the battlefield by the outpouring of your Spirit and Truth.  Glorify yourself my Lord!

 

Finally, I pray that you would send forth your angels in mass and with authority to take captive the demons of hell within the strongholds of: Sexual Deviancy, Abortion, Political Corruption, Spiritual Blindness, Pride, Indifference, Apathy, and Compromise.  Bind, gag, and place these demons within a spiritual POW camp, located within desolate places – reserved for the end time.  That way, these evil spirits will not be able to return with seven more demons more powerful than themselves.

 

Do not allow the wicked within this nation to rob you of your Glory.  Deliver us and set your son Jesus high for all to see. Reconcile us by your grace and mercy.  Set your standard amongst the rushing waters of iniquity and deliver us from the evil one.

 

This I ask in JESUS Name!  Amen.

Once again Truth is spoken by a defender of the truth. I, as Leslie,sometimes think as well that God has already turned us over to Satan, more accuratly thinking that as Christ said certain things must come to pass before His return, those things which must come are coming and now are here. We have already been seperated from the world and must continue the race a little longer. Yes, God is longsuffering as He does not want any to be lost but the time for choosing which side of the fence one will be one is upon us. There will be those who have and will turn and the rest will burn to coin a phrase. Thank you Peter.

Peter,
A very powerful message and one that needs to be preached in every Church in America. I know God will rain down his blessing on you for your faithfulness. I pray for the people of our Nation (and myself) every day,for a repentant heart. I know God hears our prayer's when we cry out to Him, humbling ourselves before Him.I pray daily for a revival of the people and restoring God to his rightful place as our King,Lord and Savior.
Love you brother in Christ.
