      Counsel from God

People across America are deeply saddened because of the terrorist attack in Orlando that killed forty-nine people and injured more than fifty.  Like 9/11, surely these attacks were wicked and evil. What do we do now!  Surely, it is time for prayer!  Surely, many are praying for God to bring comfort to the ones who have lost loved ones and the people who have been injured and their loved ones.   The President and other leaders have expressed their resolve to defeat ISIS; moreover the “experts” will express their opinions. And the nation will mourn for a season.  I am praying for the ones who did not die in this evil attack that they will get to know God in the name of Jesus before they die.  Moreover, I pray that the counsel of God will go forth to the spiritual and political leaders of America.  Because as the Country Mourns the Tragedy in Orlando, Truth Must Still Be Told: Counsel from God

The leaders of America need the counsel of God.  Only adhering to the counsel of God can heal America and defeat terrorism.  In Orlando, the patrons of a gay bar were the target.  Background: The President of the United States helps to promote gay pride during the month of June – on the other hand; this year the Muslims observe Ramadan, the Islamic holy month, from June 6 through July 5, 2016.  In the United States the current leadership equates sexual lifestyle choices as a civil right; this behavior is an abomination unto God.  For according to scriptures – Romans 1:21-32, (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.  (25)Who changed the truth of God unto a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (26)  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient: (29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity: whisperers, (30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, (31) Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”  We must read Romans 1:21-32 very carefully - the bottom line: God has given them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient and they are filled with all unrighteousness.

However by the actions of President Obama he has demonstrated that he is wiser than God; therefore in America the behavior of the LGBT community will not be inconvenient but commonplace.  To effect his resolve, President Obama ended (1) “Don’t ask – Don’t tell” (2) Pressured the Boy Scouts to change its policies even after the Supreme Court’s ruling that the policy of the Scout was constitutional (3) Stopped enforcing the Law DOMA (4) Next - The Supreme Court declared DOMA was unconstitutional by a vote of 5-4 (5) The Supreme Court wrote law to effect the will of President Obama imposing social transformation without representation.  It must be noted that Justice Roberts, the Chief Justice in his dissenting opinion stated that the decision of the Court had nothing to do with the constitution and it was an act of will and not the rule of law.  And Chief Justice Roberts also expressed that the legitimacy of their (The Courts) power depends on confining it to the exercise of legal judgment. The Late Justice Scalia saw a need to point out the composition of the Court because the Court created social transformation and did not represent the people. Here is a quote from the Late Justice Scalia: “And to allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than on taxation without representation; no social transformation without representation.”

The action of the President is the action of a King, not the President of a Democracy.  With the aid of the Supreme Court, the President has directed social transformation of the nation - every American must accept this behavior as a way of life in the United States and our children will be introduced to this lifestyle choice at an early age in school.  Today the behavior is so commonplace, it is reported that the shooter in Orlando saw two men kissing in public in Miami and the shooter got angry.  It was also reported that the shooter thought that his son should not have been subjected to see that type of conduct.  The shooter is not alone with this disposition, here he is on the side of God. However President Obama said, “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community." 

In effect, President Barack Obama has decided he knows what is best for the nation, God is wrong and he does not need the counsel of God.  President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton,  the NAACP,  and any other organization that promote this wickedness must be told that surely they have professed to be wise however they all have become fools.  Surely the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God because of this type of wickedness.  Nevertheless, President Obama and other leaders have vowed to protect the LGBT community with the strength of our law enforcement and military might and his executive orders.  The President must be told that he cannot protect the LGBT community from the wrath of God.  Nevertheless, Christians and Muslims must be told that vengeance is the Lord’s.  In the shooting in Orlando, the shooter was Muslim; however today in America there are some who profess to be Christian who hold the same disposition of the shooter who professed to be a Muslim. Here Christians and Muslims must be admonished – For God is the judge. 

Before we judge others we must check ourselves to determine if we have any of these attributes: (1) fornication, (2) wickedness, (3) covetousness, (4) maliciousness, (5) full of envy, (6) Murder, (7) debate,(8) deceit, (9) malignity, (10) whisperers, (11) backbiters, (12) haters of God, (13) despiteful, (14) proud, (15) boasters, (16) inventors of evil things, (17) disobedient to parents, (18) without understanding, (19) covenant breakers, (20) without natural affection,   (21) unmerciful.  Romans 1:32 says:  “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, and not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”  Surely the murdering of others is not the answer; however the truth must be shared in love always even at the time of mourning.   

If the leadership listens carefully, we can learn from our past mistakes. In Iraq and other nations in the Middle East – the West has attempted to impose social transformation with our military might in our attempts to establish democracies.  Here in America, President Obama has attempted to effect social transformation without representation.  Consequently, now the problem with terrorism in America is compound.  Today, in America we must also deal with the bad seeds we have planted in our attempt to effect social transformation without representation.       

The leadership of America has clearly demonstrated that they do not fear God.  Surely, many draw near God with their mouths however their hearts are far from God because they have been taught to fear God from the precepts of men.  It is apparent that the leadership of the nation does not understand the way of the Lord.   Consequently, the leadership is waging war against the righteousness of God; a war that the United States of America cannot win.

God makes peace and God creates evil.  The events of 9/11 were evil; moreover the shooting at the gay bar in Orlando was evil.  However, God loves people around the world, therefore the bombing of Iraq without provocation was evil, sowing discord throughout the Middle East and the killing of thousands were evil and Hitler killing six millions Jews was evil.  How was Hitler able to do this to God’s chosen people?   In Ezekiel 22:19-22, Ezekiel describes the systematic mass slaughter of six million European Jews in the Nazi concentration camps during World War II.  “Therefore thus said the Lord God: because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem, As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you.  Yea, I will gather you and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.  As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury upon you.”

When you study the way of the Lord you will discover, that evil is created as a reward for the ones who do wickedness.  When a nation engages in wickedness the nation rewards evil unto themselves.  God uses the wicked to carryout wickedness, then God rewards them with evil because of their wickedness.  Moreover, when you study the word of God you will discover that God even uses the forces of nature to destroy wicked nations.

God wants ISIS, (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) to be defeated, however to defeat ISIS, the Taliban, and other militant groups, it is imperative that we understand the way of the Lord. Today, many people in France, the United States, Russia and other nations are angry with ISIS because of their wickedness. These groups are killing innocent people – For God made man in His image and for His pleasure. To God man is more valuable than fine gold. Consequently, today ISIS and the Taliban find themselves in a box.

At Isaiah 33:1 the box is described as follows: “Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou was not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! When thou cease to spoil, thou shall be spoiled; And when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.”

This is surely a terrible box to be in! We must listen very carefully to this message. Surely, ISIS and the Taliban are in this box. However, to hear this we must have love for truth.  If we have love for truth we will be able to see the United States of America, the country that I love in the same box.  We have surely used our military might to bring forth terror upon the nations in the Middle East – this is the source of the hatred and anger of many.  One of the victims of the shooting in Orlando said that the shooter said that he wanted America to stop bombing his country.

The leadership of America does not have a clue on how end terrorism and defeat ISIS.   However God has a master plan to defeat ISIS.  However, the leadership of America must be willing to repent and acknowledge the nation’s faults.  Click here and read God’s master plan.

In 2001, God gave me the following message to deliver to the leaders of the United States.  I delivered the message as God directed me; however this message still rings true today.

 “You have declared a war against terrorism. The terrorism that you are experiencing is the fruit of your trust in oppression and perverseness. Therefore, put down our arms and start warring with yourselves. The people who were involved in the attack on New York and Washington are dead now. The leaders in the United States created them. There are others that are still alive that the leaders of the United States help create. Some are Americans within the United States’ borders and some are not Americans, they are around the world. Taking action to round all them up and killing them will not end terrorism.”

 “This action does not end terrorism; it only gathers bad fruit that have ripened. However, there are some bad fruit within the borders and outside the borders of the United States that have not ripened. If the leaders of the United States continue to trust in oppression and perverseness and fail to take this counsel of God, they will plant more seeds, which will produce more bad fruit. To end terrorism, leaders in the United States must change their wicked ways and seek the counsel of God.”

The United States Government and other governments must take a look at all of their ways. In the United States, we must do the following.

Ask probing questions about present actions and compare to those tenets of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Examine laws, treaties, and agreements and see the corruption. Work to end this deceit. Democracy has failed to keep capitalism in check – this factor helped to facilitate racial hatred resulting in the type of killing that we witnessed in South Carolina last year; I witnessed this same type of mindset of young white males while resolving equal opportunity and treatment concerns within our military during the 1970’s and 1980’s.  Moreover, the failure to pay people living wages and high unemployment and the lack of real opportunities for employment helps to create terrorism in the United States.  Professor Harvey Brenner of Johns Hopkins University conducted a study and found that a 1 percent increase in unemployment caused a 5.7 percent increase in homicides, a 4.1 percent increase in suicides, a 4.0 percent increase in prison admissions, and a 3.5 percent increase in mental hospital admission.  It is imperative that we address the root causes; however our current leaders have failed to address the roots of the conditions that create the fertile environments that breed terrorism.

To end terrorism within the United States’ borders and outside the United States’ borders, we must understand the complexity of the problems, then address the root causes and stop planting even more bad seeds at home and abroad.  The nation’s leadership has failed at all levels.  Surely this is not smooth talk, however it we are serious about the future of the nation, the leadership must learn to fear God based on His precepts – if not God will destroy America as God has destroyed other great nations in the past.  We can learn from King David.  King David reigned for 40 years and David hearkened to the commandments of God.  David’s last words are recorded at 2 Samuel 23:2-3 “The spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.  The God of Israel said to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God…”

 I am a Prophet of God in the name of Jesus.  God has also given me the gift of a problem solver.  The Jews, Muslims, and Christians all claim to worship the same God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Some have perverted the Gospel of Christ and some have perverted the Words of Prophet Mohammed that he wrote in the Holy Koran.  Satan has capitalized on all of this to effect his will.  Here are some other teachings that I share in love to help bring forth light to these complex circumstances and problems.
