    Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
    This Thursday, we are meeting everywhere throughout the nation for prayer for the first country founded on Christian principles. As you know, we have fallen into apostasy and depravity, a nation of lost souls, and these are the end times, with judgement coming soon. Is America mentioned in the Bible? Would such an accurate and truthful book dealing with end times not do so? America is in the Bible, in Revelations, Zephaniah, Isaiah, and many other places; mentioned in words such as the seventh head(kingdom), the distant land, the different rivers, towers, etc… And we can see much of what is developing here in America and other places of the planet, being unfolded as we stand here today, as mentioned there as the beginning of events of tribulation.

    Brethren, we are told to pray. There is much hope for this country and for the planet. But will it stop the plan of God as it is stated will happen in an inerrant Bible? We may be able to ask God to delay His judgement, but it is imminent. I propose a more needed and practical subject for prayer, and the follow up by Christians in a movement that MUST be initiated for all of us to be able to sleep tonight. My former pastor, as well as other anointed people of God, will be leading the nation’s Christians in prayer. We should be supporting them totally as they do so. But there is another lesson they are teaching us that we should more eagerly follow. That we too, should be voices in the wilderness. We too, should be voicing a message so needed by this nation. We are all called to be the voice, the hands, and the feet of Jesus, shod with the preparation of the Gospel (good news) of peace (salvation). A few men speaking to a nation of Christians is a start. But a mass of people blowing the shofar where it really needs to be heard, to the godless nation, to the people who don’t know Christ, can do so much more. And it could grow from there. Do you have any excuse? Put it aside. No time? Stop watching TV (I haven’t for 10 years) Stop relaxing and watching movies (I have gone to one in 20 years, and not been on vacation for 9 years). The hour is late, and the time is short. Don’t know the Bible well? Tell what you know, and pass out tracts. Too young? Look at Jeremiah. Not smart enough? Look at the fishermen disciples. Disabled? Look at stammering Moses. Afraid? Look at Gideon. The country and the world who don’t know Christ are the ones we need to reach. Is it important? Is eternity in hell something you wish for anybody?

    For us church going Christians, studying the Word, fellowshipping among ourselves, I have a word. Ray Comfort describes it like us being firemen, and there is a fire in a house, and a family is stuck inside, in imminent danger. What would you think of the firemen nearby watching, who are well trained in the knowledge of fires and fighting them, who are sitting around reading manuals and discussing them while the people in the house burn in flames? Got it? GET OUT THERE!!! WARN SOME PEOPLE!!!! DANGER OF FIRE COMING SOON!!! It isn’t the Christians who need to hear, IT IS THE CHRISTIANS WHO NEED TO ACT!!! If we don’t, who will? Start now. Don’t wait for your church to organize, plan, and bureaucracies. Get to it. Imagine the consequences if we don’t. This could have a ripple effect. Imagine the possibilities. This is a call for the new militia, the new minutemen of the US. We need to call to assemble and revive the hearts of ourselves, the church, and the nation. Let us start a movement that shakes a nation. It is not too late. I don’t know if we can stop the end times, but I do know that we can be used of God to be instrumental in the salvation of many souls. Miriads of angels rejoice over one. Think of the ecstasy we can cause there. Or think of the grief we will not avoid, if we don’t.

    That not every one of you will do this, burdens my heart, as I feel for those lost souls headed to flames. If my previous words of exhortation has not prompted you to immediate resolve and action, I request that you listen or read a little more. If the following words do not deeply move and affect you, there is something seriously wrong and heartless with you.
    I know what may be stopping some of you from doing what I exhorted you all to do. You have lives to live. You have agendas to keep. You have priorities. You have bills. Is your business-as-usual to support all your dust and rust (for that is what everything in this universe is, except for our souls, God, and His Word) so very much important that it overrides any concern that your spouse, children, siblings, friends, neighbors, or anybody else you might meet, is headed to everlasting torment in hell? Would you feel comfortable telling that nice little old lady down the street who will be burning in hell forever that you didn’t bother evangelizing to her or anybody else because you wanted to provide a restaurant meal for your family once in a while? Or because you wanted a college education that would be useless anyway? When you are in heaven, God forbid you would be able to remember that people are in torture, excruciating pain for thousands of centuries, because you refused to deny yourself and lose your life, as the Bible, JESUS COMMANDED YOU TO, HE VERY CLEARLY TOLD YOU NOT TO PUT YOUR LIFE IN FRONT OF SERVING HIM (AS HE TELLS YOU TO, NOT AS YOU ARE (LED)WANTING TO)!!. To serve your family, or yourself, above Him and the life He tells you to, is DISOBEDIENCE, REBELLION, and SELFISHNESS. HE WHO DOES NOT GATHER, SCATTERS.

    Matthew 16:24-25 (NIV)
    24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
    25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.

    I hate to put it so bluntly, but I feel very strongly about this. I have found my life, now that I have lost it. It is no longer myself, or any of my own priorities that I live for. It is only to serve Him wherever, however, and whatever He tells me to. I follow Him and His direction only. I can truly say that I am pouring out my life as a drink offering on the altar. My life is now more meaningful than you can imagine. God is blessing me immeasurably. And I don’t mean financially. It is so much more. Fire in my bones. Unspeakable joy and love in my heart. Complete lack of fear. A life consecrated to the Lord is one that shines like the stars of heaven. I recommend it, brethren. Being in the heavenlies is contagious. Try it. Michael Kahn 4/29/2014
