Be Like Nehemiah

As the world awaits the proverbial ‘changing of the guard’ in the United States of America, some are fearful, meanwhile many are jubilant. As I have said many times before, God is the one who promotes and demotes. He does whatever He pleases. We may not understand God’s will, but we must pray each day. If President-elect Donald Trump wants to be successful and legitimately ‘make America great again’, then he should take a cue from Nehemiah.

First, Nehemiah identified who the survivors were, and in the case of the USA, the forgotten, the poor, fatherless, widows, the distressed, dejected, discontented, those in despair, the abandoned communities and the veterans and their families or surviving families. Repair and strengthen the institution of family which is broken. The family is the first line of government in any nation.

Nobody listens to the poor (Ecclesiastes 9: 16). Don’t listen only to the wealthy, but also to the poor. There are many who are poor with excellent solutions, but because of poverty they are despised and ignored. There are many who are rich but speak utter nonsense, yet it is gobbled up by the media and those lacking ideas. Wealth is not the mark of success. There are many who have been through many losses and failures, but have gained wisdom and have become true champions. It is sometimes a lack of opportunity or of a second chance that keep people in poverty.

Second, before making any major change, there will need to be four months of prayer to build a foundation, and for God to give Him guidance, tactics and strategies. The next four months will be critical to his presidency. Prayer is essential to leadership; he has proven this through his campaign. Prayer brings great vision to fruition. One of his prayers should be Nehemiah 1: 5 – 11, and that God will cause America to return to Him. He also has to repent on behalf of the nation for all that they have done, and for how America has, in general, forsaken God. He has to pray that God will forgive the mistakes of past administrations, and that God will heal the division within the nation.

As a wise leader, Nehemiah refrained from sharing his ideas with people until he has actually assessed matters and prayerfully considered the cost. There are two major things Trump has to do: repair and rebuild.

In repairing, Trump has to identify what was good from the previous administrations, then enhance and strengthen those things. For example, regarding immigration, he has to tread carefully, because part of what made America great was immigration. People came to America for opportunity, religious and economic reasons. They were welcomed and given the opportunity to legally inhabit, and that allowed America to be blessed. He has to discern who has come to build and who has come to destroy. Immigrants have been some of the most successful persons to help build America.

For example, the Transcontinental Railroad was built by the Chinese, which caused the nation to get a quick passage from east to west. The journey that usually took 4-6 months then took six days.

All eight great-grandparents of President John F. Kennedy and his siblings came to the United States on the ‘coffin ships’ to Boston Harbour and passed through the city’s immigration hall.

Immigrants do not steal jobs; they do the jobs that Americans don’t want. Immigrants always help the economy, whether they come here willingly or are forced to. It is going to be critical who advises him on this issue, as this has the potential to create another civil war, something I have also seen in a vision. Allow illegal immigrants the opportunity of a pathway to citizenship as this will also contribute towards reducing poverty, because they will be required to pay taxes, contribute to the school and economic systems and the real estate industry, while reducing the burden on the government to provide public assistance.

Furthermore, the armed forces must become modernized, the space programme needs to be revamped, greater attention must be given for developments in livestock/agriculture, water and energy.

Maintain the dream act and sanctuary cities. Avail funds to faith-based NGOs, without discrimination, to rebuild communities. Aggressively deal with drug lords, extortionists and their partners, as their actions interfere with foreign exchange and trade.

Pay greater attention to giving our children high-quality education and to training the teachers.

Give debt write-offs to, and ease regulations on, Caribbean and African nations.

Give grants for development and expansion of solar energy technology for poorer countries. Then the people will unite and rebuild.

TBN is heading for a fall and there will be serious exposure.   Many will be surprised.  The exposure will come because too many Christians are looking up to them.  Many will fail.

Pray For Pat Robertson

The great deception is coming.   But the faithful ones who focus on Jesus, they will know that there is a shift in Christendom and that they will prepare themselves.  It is happening now the people who are predestined for heaven are making up their jewels – preparing themselves for the return of Christ.

When we see this in the churches we are not to allow their behavior to get us frustrated, but pray for them, love them.  Many are going to find themselves at places and indulge in un-holiness.

I look for a man to make up the edges!  The world is sinking into depravity and degradation!  Their sins have come up before me!  The stench of their sins.  Those that I have called and anointed have gone a-whoring!

Papers going across the world with the headlines – warn the nations for there will be interpreters who will interpret my word for I am the lord thy God that speaketh.  Because I am weary of their doings.

The Lord says as some leave the services they are gone with men or women and their wives don’t know where they are, only to face the media that their husbands are caught up in sinful acts.

Leaders are chose to lead the young middle aged and old to me but they have compromised and are gone a-whoring!  Just like god told the prophet to put his girdle in the water, let it rot, that is the lifestyle they are living – some of those that call my name.   But I shall raise up men and women that will run with my message.  Prophets in the name of Jesus Christ… I will stretch forth my hand over some countries communities and they will disappear, they will be no more.  Lands and crops will perish be warned.

We must continually pray for the USA and its President that those advisors around him will not lead him to cause His people to suffer.  There are 2 agendas one of which is to bring in billionaires to the forefront and push the poor aside.  The programs that they are pushing are supposed to benefit the rich.

They want to push aside the poor and the Lord will not stand for that.  Any country that refuses to take care of the poor they will suffer.  They will have continual disasters, threats from other nations and many cities and towns will reach a stage where they will be uninhabitable, because they have turned their backs on the Lord!

Another worldwide disturbance is coming and many countries who were accustomed to helping, giving alms and they and their companies will be cut off.  Countries will be hoarding.  Communications will be disrupted.  Some countries will want to cease communications with each other.

Yet in all of this there will be a massive worldwide evangelism and the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit of God and those who repent will have His favor.

Time for Action

The US Elections have revealed the hearts and the state of God’s people. We are also seeing the focus of Christians today. We as Christians are to be the salt of the earth and we are the light that Jesus is depending on; but where is our discernment?

As Christians, our mouths must speak and declare life, light, change and that God will reign over all nations. That is why we must pray “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” each day; and in no way must we fight God’s will. Each time we come against God’s will we are coming against God Himself. There is no way – as a Christian – we should be declaring venom against any leader – especially on social network. (Jude 8 – 10) Michael, an archangel of the Lord, in addressing the devil on an issue, “… dared not bring against him (the devil) a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” Michael could have been extremely disrespectful to the devil, but He maintained his respect, not necessarily for the devil, but more so as a representative of God and the Kingdom – and that is the key.

The behavior of the Christian community – including leaders, pastors and so on – makes one wonder, where is the Fruit of the Spirit in all of this?

As Christians, how can we speak about racism in others, when prejudices are so potent in the Church throughout this nation? For example, what do we call it when some church leaders do not socialize with other church leaders because they feel that those church leaders are below their level? What do we call it, when white Pastors get fired for attending functions at a black Church; or a black Pastor being shunned because he attended the function at a white church? What do we call it when the poor in the church are not permitted to sit up front and the seats up front are reserved for the wealthier ones in the congregation? What do you call it, when some pastors are afraid to acknowledge other pastors in public, but are willing to talk to them on the phone by night – like Nicodemus and Jesus?

We talk about racism, but we turn a blind eye to abortion and the murdering of our children at birth. Some think they are too good to physically go out where homeless or less fortunate children are and feed them. They would prefer to give $5 or less for somebody else to go and do it while they stop to fill their bellies with ribs and crabs legs for $50. Some boastfully drive SUVs, and have an extra vehicle parked at home, but would never consider donating that parked vehicle to a poorer church, or to a family that genuinely needs a vehicle.

Political Leaders

Regardless of the Party or Color, we as Christians are supposed to teach politicians and secular leaders the right things – the truth. Instead we oppose, cuss and compromise. But recognize that when we do that, we are responsible for their actions too.

Any laws that are passed, that come against Christian values, are against us also. We have to clean up ourselves – our mouths, our hearts and we have to understand that what is required of us is holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”

Going to church, sitting in the front seat or on the Church Board does not make you a Christian. A Christian has to follow Christ and live by the principles of God. Much of the sin that is prevalent in the world started right in the Church.

As Christians, why are we not fasting? Why are we not praying – and praying for the will of God to be done? Why don’t we forgive? Who are we to tell God who to allow in authority; and when did we stop asking Him whom He wants to be in authority, or whom He does not want to be in authority, since He knows His own plans? Who are we to tell God not to forgive someone or not to use someone to fulfill His plans however He chooses? He can put in anyone He wants to, for any purpose, and any length of time He chooses.


There needs to be repentance. Pray that righteous men and women will surround leaders at all level so that:

1. All illegal immigrants who are peaceful get amnesty

2. Money will be given to rebuild the family

3. Affordable Healthcare will be provided for all who need it.

4. The Credit Score System can be revisited and revised so everyone has a real opportunity to own a home.

5. Gender inequality will no longer be an issue especially in terms of distribution of resources.

6. There will no longer be discrimination against Faith-based, Not-For-Profits and Churches that are assisting or empowering the communities.
We must pray that our Political leaders will not divert or depart from God, like Saul or King Uzziah, but instead seek God’s Divine guidance and listen to and obey His voice.

Grace and Peace to all.

We are just 2 days away from an election that is one of the most important in history! The outcome of the election is extremely significant, especially as it relates to the Church, Israel, the Anti-Christ and the Rapture. We also need to watch the Book of Revelation, particularly Revelation 17.

The Lord showed me 2 visions prophetically which are frightening; one about a year ago and one just now!

While many prophets have been prophesying victory for a particular candidate, we must take into consideration that Biblical Prophecies are the only Prophecies that cannot fall to the ground – as are found in Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation. Other prophecies, personal prophecies, prophecies about the nations can fall to the ground regardless of the accuracy, subject to the condition given, “if you will… I will” – so obedience is a condition. We also must pray when a prophetic word is given, for God’s will to prevail because there will always be opposition. Only a small section of the Body of Christ is praying for God’s will to be done! If we don’t pray, the outcome might bring us back to our knees. We tend to pray after the fact, not before; but it might be too late!

There are many things at stake in this election! 1) The Institution of Family 2) The Church 3) Freedom of Speech

Sadly, most Christians are focusing on material things, not heavenly things – not the things of God!

The next thing the Lord showed me is that we must pray for a free and fair election, because it is not going to be a fair one. There is great sabotage and undermining. There is a stifling of votes! Pray that the Christians will not be ruled by the Philistines at the end of the elections. I believe the true prophets will emerge after the elections regardless of how dark things will be.

We pray for the ‘third world’/Caribbean countries, because they will feel the impact greatly!

It is anyone’s race, and there is a possibility that the most vocal people that were pushing for a particular agenda on gender to win will be experiencing the most remorse!

On either side it looks dismal for each presidential candidate – depending on the angle you are looking from – but what we must pray for is that God’s Will to prevail and not the works of man’s hands! It is all about God and what He wants!

Let us pray for the great harvest that is about to come home to the Lord as in the Book of Revelation. Let us pray for the backsliders to return and for the Church to be rapture-ready! Pray for the protection of Israel and for the Israeli Prime Minister. Pray for souls to be saved and the Books of Revelation and Daniel to be taught within the churches. Don’t listen to anyone who says the Book of Revelation is not for now! It is past present and future and we are seeing the fulfillment of the Book of Revelation.
