In less than 55 days on November 4th America will have its new President. This coming election presents America with its next great critical choice to either move toward God [with McCain] as a nation or move quickly away from God. This upcoming election MAY BE THE MOST CRITICAL ELECTION IN OUR NATION'S HISTORY. Why? Because this generation is in the End Times. And our next President will make crucial judgements in leading America during today's major prophetical times which will definitely and quickly become severely more perilous than they are right now.
As of today [Sept 11, 2008] the polls are mostly tied between McCain and Obama with America virtually divided in half about who to vote for in November 4th's election.
This is the perfect opportunity for believers and persons who believe in the power of prayer to petition God. Those who believe God answers prayer and know that God can definitely be moved by His children's fervent prayers will be praying specifically for McCain to be swept by the Spirit of God into the Presidency of the United States. In fact, the prayers of His righteous people will avail much. [James 5:16].
Over the next weeks many globally who believe in prayer will be reading this letter either by our emailings to our global partners, or by visiting www.Heisnear.com where this same letter is posted and/or through strategic internet sites where Heisnear.com is heavily marketed and/or linked to. Literally, tens of millions of Americans and God-fearing believers collectively visit these sites daily, many of whom will be praying.
God clearly has His hand on America, BUT HE HAS A WORD to all of us:
Recently, over the last 30 years or so [since 1980] , millions of Bible-believing Christians in the USA have asked God through intercessory prayer to keep His hand on our country and bring forth a true man of God who can lead us. God has responded repeatedly by providing America with 3 out of 4 of our last Presidents who are [and were] true God-fearing Presidents. Although they may have made some errors, these Presidents did many good and right things and were proven true believers in Christ Jesus. [Reagan 80-88, Bush Sr 88-92, current President Bush 00-08].
Right now, John McCain has been brought to the forefront from the prayers of Americans who are true God-fearing believers. As President, Senator John McCain has the potential to be another Ronald Reagan in terms of integrity, the humility to reach out to opposing politicians and all Americans to bring unity, and also the boldness to make the necessary changes that will strengthen and protect our nation. McCain also has just the kind of bold character to stand up and call this nation to repentance which is the greatest prophetical call from the throne room of God today to America.
America's last President who publicly called for national repentance was Ronald Reagan himself. Reagan delivered 2 Chronicles 7:14 over and over to our nation for 8 years ['80-'88]. Unfortunately, most Americans, including today's so-called prophets and top TV ministers, recognized Reagan's words as nothing more than the wonderful concept of an American President quoting scriptures to our nation. But, in fact, President Reagan's quoting of 2 Chronicles 7:14 was much greater than just 'quoting Bible passages'. President Reagan was prophesying to America from the heart of God!
'If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I [God] will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.' [2 Chron. 7:14].
This same word which Reagan spoke and prophesied for 8 years is THE SAME EXACT WORD TO AMERICA FROM THE THRONE OF GOD TODAY!
The Problem now: A divided nation in Perilous Times
Today, the problem is that our nation is divided [basically 50/50] on major issues, even Biblical beliefs. This is a serious and significant matter since a 'house divided against itself falls'. [Luke 11:17]. This is one prime reason which makes this upcoming Presidential election highly critical to our country's future.
The very root of the problem in America is unrepentant hearts who seek the desires of the flesh and the things of the world and the boastful pride of life instead of holding fast to the Word of God and abiding uprightly in the Lord Jesus and His precious Holy Spirit.
Without queston TODAY's GENERATION is now entering the most critical time in End Time history with global danger [like terrorism] and the global economy affecting ALL people, including the USA. The perilous times coming will make today's world even worse. My brothers and sisters, America cannot afford NOT to have a God-fearing man like John McCain as our next President who will boldly stand up for what is right and true before God and before all Americans and with sound judgements on today's crucial matters.
The only other choice is Obama of whom today's polls show his potential election to the Presidency to be equally possible. However, Obama has a deceitful spirit, bases his brand of Christianity on his 20 year church membership with a proven racist and false prophet Jeremiah Wright Jr., will not admit that conception immediately begins the human life of a baby as Psalms 139 clearly states, speaks cleverly out of both sides of his mouth even reversing his stories, suggested that Israel be prepared to handle her own problems, and is arrogant and sophisticated in his covering of his shady background and associations.
In addition, Obama has almost zero accomplishments as a Senator making him possibly the most unqualified man in American history to be nominated by his party to the Presidency of the USA. Those who have paid close attention to the publicized facts over the last couple months recognize what I am saying here is not empty rhetoric.
Potentially, Barack Obama is the single greatest 'internal' threat right now to the United States of America. Having zoomed to the forefront of the most powerful country in world history Obama has mesmerized half of its people [and the secular blind world itself] without having any more qualifications to be President than simply being a great orator. Yet amazingly, HALF of our country is still, as of today, believing him to be ready and able to lead our nation.
Alarmingly, a parallel account in the Old Testament shows the nation of Israel's rebellious people cried out for a 'king' who would serve them and satisy their fleshly desires in place of their need to repent and to serve God as their 'king'. Against God's perfect will, they got their fleshly wish with their new 'king', Saul. [1 Samuel 8: 5, 7, 22]. However, with their new 'king' came the prophet Samuel's stern warnings that, 'Then, you will cry out in that day because of the king you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.' [1 Sam.8:9,18].
On November 4th, America's voters will have a similar critical opportunity to seek God's face and select a true man of God in John McCain. Or, Americans will continue to seek their own fleshly interests first by selecting a man of deception who disguises himself as a Christian, stands in favor of numerous principles which oppose God and His word, and poses a viable threat to our own nation's security and future as does Obama.
God's Desires the very best Leader for His children
In America many of today's people and believers have fallen lethargic about spiritual things and the nature of God. Even today's so-called prophets and popular Christian 'shepherds' themselves prove their main interest to be selling books and CD's, exalting their own names and ministries, and loving the approval and recognition as being a 'reverend' and the newest 'prophet' on the scene.
Most of today's popular Christian leaders are in a 'patty-cake-patty-cake' mode, not wanting to offend anyone and then compromising themselves and the sharp-edged truths of God's principles. All this rather than equipping the saints [Eph. 4:12] and uprightly leading God's people with true Christlikeness. In addition, today's popular ministers have NOT conveyed to God's children the crucial and necessary truths of these End Times while blowing the trumpet of alarm as to the nearness of the soon-coming King of all kings. As a result, America has grown weary and divided.
So, has God given up on America? Absolutely not. But, does God really care about 'who?' our next President will be? I don't hesitate to say boldly that God is deeply caring and intense about 'who' leads America! Why? First, it's God's own nature to care for His children. In America, He has millions of children. As a true loving Father, 'God humbles Himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth.' [Psalms 113:6]. His children are, and always have been since in the beginning, His highest priority and greatest care!
Secondly, does God NOT care about who leads His precious children? He absolutely DOES care!! The Lord Jesus Himself also warned: 'See to it that no one misleads you!' [Math. 24:4]. This applies to God's children in every way so that we use discernment and wisdom as to 'who' we choose to submit to as our leader or choose to keep company with or follow.
Thirdly, the Bible is filled with guidelines and instructions as to the profile and character of true men and women of God who we should look to as our leaders.
The United States itself was born with God's principles and by God-fearing men and women who knew God and stood boldly and courageously by the Bible and for the Lord Jesus Christ. America's birth is no accident. It is divinely birthed and is still divinely protected by God's mighty hand. And it is still God's desire today for His people to be led by a true man of God, even as our President.
But, America's current state of being divided in half is strictly because our nation, political and religious leaders included, has fallen away from God. As a nation, we are in need of national repentance from our great sins including aborting over 40 million babies since 1973, the greatest single abomination in world history. Because of America's sins and current unrepentant heart as a nation, her current mode of spiralling toward economic collapse will continue including continuing severe birth pangs [ie. more natural disasters, etc] heaping more economic woes upon America until the USA is called to national repentance.
Yet God still sits mercifully extending His love to us, waiting for God-fearing people in America and our nation as a whole to fall to our knees and repent.
What is the solution? Over the next few weeks, America AGAIN has opportunity to PRAY that a God-fearing President [McCain] will lead the United States as God's hand rests mightily upon him and our nation.
Prophetically at this critical juncture in America's history and in these End Times, John McCain as our NEXT PRESIDENT will bring great hope and the potential for America to come together again as a whole.
The last President who accomplished this was President Reagan who won his Presidency with a landslide in 1980 while bringing great honor, integrity and great unity to our nation for the ensuing 8 years. With President McCain, there is genuine opportunity AGAIN for America to rise in strength and unity as a nation in these highly crucial End Times. And to repent as a nation.
Significant examples in the scriptures show times where God's people were upright even though the 'kingdom' they lived in was evil. For example, Daniel the prophet was an upright man of God who lived in the evil kingdom of Babylon, yet God's hand rested mightily upon him.
Today, America's profile is similar. Although many upright God-fearing people are in America, the earthly 'kingdom' [and government] of America itself has become corrupted in many ways and has allowed many evils to increase within our land and society and laws.
But, God's will is for BOTH, His children in America AND America as a nation, to rise up together. This will require our PRAYERS to God for America to be led by a true believer in God and in Christ Jesus. Of today's two Presidential Nominees, this is clearly and only John McCain. With Obama as President, America as a 'nation' and 'kingdom' would incur great calamity and quick and critical setbacks.
In the larger scope globally and at this point in today's rapidly advancing End Times, scriptures specifically show that the the body of Christ globally[and within America too] will itself mightily unite and rise in the next days in the power and Spirit of the Lord like never before as He pours out His Spirit in His final move upon His children worldwide. [Dan.11:32, 33, 35; Joel 2:28, 29]. This foretold scenario will occur soon in this generation regardless of America's leaders or any other country's leaders for that matter.
Prayer moves God
Over the last 20 years or so, since Ronald Reagan left office in 1988 the devil has notched up his encroachment upon our land like never before knowing he has but a short time left in this generation. During this time, America has become obviously more divided and more godless than ever before.
Then, what is the BEST thing we can do right now? First, we must examine ourselves and Repent and turn away from any wrong or evil in ourselves and in our lives. As mentioned before, this is the highest call from His throne room today for ALL people worldwide. [2 Chron. 7:14].
Secondly, we must PRAY for the Spirit of God to sweep over the hearts of our loved ones and all Americans with great conviction so that many would also repent and turn to God. [2 Chron.7:14; James 5:16].
Thirdly, we must pray for John McCain to be placed into the White House as America's next president. If you watched the Republic National Convention then you have seen McCain's personal testimony and that clearly God's hand is mightily upon John McCain all of his life.
It is not just a coincidence that at this incredibly critical juncture in America's history, John McCain is now standing in the forefront. McCain's nomination is an obvious DIVINE ANSWER to millions of prior intercessory prayers asking God to provide America with another true believer in Christ to lead the USA.
November 4th's' election of McCain means he would become the 4th of the last 5 Presidents [since Reagan in 1980] who God has given America [as a nation] as one more opportunity for our nation to REPENT, UNITE and move forward under God's mighty hand. These next weeks are a vital opportunity to influence the election with our prayers.
Our immediate prayers now will cause God's Spirit to begin moving on both of America's needs: National repentance AND McCain for President.
Having McCain in office will definitely swing the spiritual door open for potential subsequent national repentance in America to follow since McCain, like President Reagan, is bold enough to stand up and call this nation to repentance.
God will hear
The mighty prayers of Daniel about 586 years B.C. were powerful. Daniel by himself moved God to break back into the very geographic area [Babylon/ today's IRAQ-Iran region] which was infiltrated with evil prinicpalities and heavenly forces of evil. These evil spiritual and heavenly forces had converged over that region from about 3400 years before Daniel since God pronounced the first curse upon that region in the garden of Eden.
Yet one man, the prophet Daniel, moved God during 3 weeks of fervent prayer to send His warring angels to re-enter that cursed region to bring a powerful answer to prayer.
What is also powerful was Gabriel's first words to Daniel upon meeting him face-to-face with the good news saying: 'From the first day' you started praying God started responding in your behalf! [Dan.10:12]. God's children today have this same great assurance with our prayers to Him in the most powerful NAME of Jesus!
How much more power and influence can millions of God's own praying children generate collectively STARTING TODAY by bringing our requests fervently in prayer before our Heavenly Father who desires to hear from us on this matter?
Brothers and sisters, Please DO NOT read through this and say, 'Well, I'll pray a little later' . PRAY RIGHT NOW [if your are alone now] the above prayer to God! If you are not alone now, then set time aside TODAY to stand before God on this critical matter. Our prayers should be specific.
ASK HIM DIRECTLY to bring GREAT CONVICTION and TRUTH upon Americans within the next few weeks so that people would REPENT, have a humbled heart before God AND that John McCain will be swept into the highest office of the great United States of America!
