 Chapter 1:  How in the World Could This Have Happened?


At the end of the Prophet Samuel's life, Israel decided they did not want to be judged by Prophets any longer. Rather, they wanted a King to rule over them in order to be like all their neighboring, sinful nations. This thing greatly displeased both Samuel and the Lord. However, because Israel insisted upon having things according to their own sinful, rebellious ways, God allowed it to come to pass.


"And the Lord said unto Samuel, hearken unto the voice of the people and all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them." (1 Samuel 8:7)


This is what the predominately Christian United States of America did in the 2008 Presidential election of the Muslim, Barack Hussein Obama.  America decided that God should not reign over her. 


I believe God allowed the election of Barack Hussein Obama to occur as a four-year period of warning to the United States of America of the direction the nation would continue to go without repentance.


Throughout the Bible, Holy God warns repeatedly before He allows judgment to occur.


Jesus Appears to His Praying Prophet


On the Monday night before the 2008 Presidential election, a friend, a recognized Prophet, was praying for the election to turn in favor of Barack Obama's opponent.  He explained to me that as he was praying along these lines, suddenly the Lord Jesus Christ appeared before him.  


The Lord Jesus looked at His praying Prophet and said, "Don't talk to Me about the election anymore. I don't want to hear it! The people of the United States are going to get exactly what they want but it will not be like they think. Tell them they will have 1 Samuel 8 in the nation because they disobeyed My will."  


With that, the Prophet explained to me, Jesus was gone.


The 2008 Presidential election turned out exactly as Jesus told His Prophet. 


America rejected Jesus Christ, and the principles of the Bible, that Christ should not reign over her. 


Like Israel in her rebellion against Holy God, America and her people became obstinate and urgent in their demands for their own self-indulgent desires.  As a result, like Israel, America began to justly forfeit the comfort of answered prayer and the benefit of God's protection and provision. Barack Hussein Obama began to systematically dismantle our government, legal system, financial infrastructure and military.  Also, like Israel in her rebellion, America brought herself into exceedingly great distress. 


The first four years of the Obama Administration was intended to be a warning to America from Holy God as to what could ultimately happen to our nation if we continue to refuse to repent for our national sins of untold millions of abortions, the normalization of homosexuality, immorality, even in the Church in epidemic proportions, and tampering with Israel's security and her right to exist as a sovereign free democracy.


Sadly, Christian America, including her Preachers, did not get the message of God's four year warning. All but a handful of God's Ministers refused to stand in their pulpits and preach a strong message of repentance in order to keep Barack Hussein Obama, the instrument of warning in the hands of God, from being re-elected. 


For the most part America's Preachers ignored what was happening, taking the same attitude as the Bible-illiterate Preacher who said to me, "Presidents come and Presidents go. We got through every Administration before his, we'll get through his as well."  


What a dreadful mistake America's unenlightened Preachers made by passing off Barack Hussein Obama as "just another President," when in fact, he was a warning from a loving God that further and even more far reaching consequences for our national sins were on the immediate horizon.


Shockingly, the day after the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama, one very popular, yet obviously unenlightened, Minnesota-based, Word of Faith Preacher proclaimed, "President Obama, we welcome you with open arms."  


Only a Bible-illiterate Christian individual, let alone a Preacher, would ever make such a foolish proclamation. To welcome Barack Hussein Obama with open arms is to welcome the judgment of God with open arms.


Another very popular Louisiana-based Word of Faith Minister opened one of his services, immediately after President Obama's re-election, by saying, "Let's all just believe God for President Obama's best four years yet." 


How ludicrous this is. The best four years yet for Barack Hussein Obama would result in Islamic World Domination.


These are two striking examples of how blinded most American Preachers are to what is actually happening to their country and why.    


The first four years of Barack Hussein Obama's Presidency were four years of warning from a loving God.


The second four years of Barack Hussein Obama's Presidency clearly have been four years of judgment as a result of ignoring God's previous four-year warning. 


It is astounding how in Israel's rebellious 4,000 year history we have a picture of our own hearts and lives in 21st Century America.


Even as Israel did by insisting upon a King who was not God's perfect will, America will now find the yoke of Barack Hussein Obama, who is also not God's perfect will, to be exceedingly heavy indeed.


Pastor Joseph Prince, the false grace Teacher from Singapore, insists that American Christians have nothing for which to repent. 


According to Prince, for American Christians to ask forgiveness of God for anything would be an  insult to God. Prince has taught on a worldwide scale that all sins are automatically forgiven. He also teaches that "God does not judge individuals and nations for their sin."  


From the pulpit of Pastor Joel Osteen's Church in Houston, Texas, Prince proclaimed that any preacher who says God judges individuals or nations for their sin is "sick." 


Joseph Prince and those who follow his false teachings seem unaware of the fact that God always has and always will use Prophets to warn of pending judgment for individual and national sins. When His Prophets are ignored, mocked, badgered and called childish names such as "sick," bad things really do begin to happen. 


Again, Israel's rebellion and judgment is a prime example of this. 


When God's Prophets are mocked and ignored morality goes down the drain. Sin increases tremendously on a national scale. Overwhelming economic decrease reigns and physical threats and attacks from violent enemies ensue.


Joseph Prince does not have special revelation that even Jesus Christ Himself did not have.


Repentance has always been and always will be God's only solution to sin's dilemma. 


"Except ye repent you shall all likewise perish." Jesus Christ (Luke 13:3)



God Will Not Be Mocked. Sowing & Reaping Is for Real  


After the 2012 re-election of Barack Hussein Obama to the U.S. Presidency, millions of American Christians fell on their faces, covering their heads with their hands, crying out, “Oh, God! How in the world could this have happened again?” 


Many spent the following days and weeks after the re-election literally stunned that, in spite of every prayer to the contrary, the most anti-Bible, anti-Christian, anti-Israel President in American history managed to get himself re-elected after four years of abysmal policy failures, blatant lies, endless broken promises and a “Please Forgive America for Our Generosity and Strengths World Tour."


It is important to remember that the Bible says God will not be mocked.  Whatever individuals or nations sow, that shall they also reap, making them entirely responsible for their own destinies. (Galatians 6:7-8) 


Whenever individuals or nations defy the Most High God and do as they please, in spite of His command to obey Him, there is a price to pay through what the Bible calls the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


God set up the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to work in such a way that when men do good, they reap harvests of good; when men do evil, they reap harvests of evil. 


This is to encourage men to do good and to hopefully prevent them from doing evil.


This means, in actuality, that God is not directly judging men or nations when they sin, but rather they are judging themselves.  


So how could this man with a proven, undeniable Muslim background and such strong Muslim ties worldwide, who boldly lies and calls himself a Christian, be re-elected in a predominantly Christian nation?


He has blatantly refused to accommodate in any way America's four-century long protection of religious conscience, arrogantly requiring Christians to go against their own belief system or, in some cases, to be literally driven out of business.


His treatment of religious Jews has been abhorrent, particularly his treatment of the nation of Israel.  Outwardly he says, "Israel has the right to defend herself" while behind the scenes he gives hundreds of millions of American tax-payer dollars to terrorist groups who boldly decree, "Israel has no right to exist and we will personally see to it that she ceases to do so."  


His Presidential debate performances were immensely childish, shockingly dishonest, embarrassing and hugely disrespectful to both his opponent and his countrymen.


This is a man who has been caught lying in ways that would make Satan blush.  Fact, not criticism.


This is a man who still refuses to produce a Constitutionally-required, legitimate birth certificate to stand in the Office of the Presidency.


This is a man with terrible, corrupt, criminal credentials.


This is a man of proven inexperience with absolutely no executive skills.


This is a man who has deliberately and defiantly increased America’s debt to where it is impossible to recover.


Through this man the violent, Sharia Law-driven Muslim Brotherhood has literally infiltrated both our White House and our State and Justice Departments.


Through this man our country has been taken over by Islamic Jihad - Holy War, without a single shot being fired.


Because of this man’s insane policies and desire to destroy America, we are increasingly facing economic collapse, the rapid crumbling of the U.S. dollar and it soon being replaced as the world’s standard for currency.  Americans who have worked hard all their lives are losing all of their investments. Soon only silver and gold bullion and coins will have any value.


The unemployment rate continues to soar under his complete lack of leadership. He has operated without a Constitutionally-required federal budget and in absolute defiance of elected Congressional officials since his very first day in office.


The murder cover-up of American citizens by the Muslim Brotherhood at Benghazi, Libya, Northern Africa is so glaring it makes an intelligent person want to vomit.


This President is simply considered a Socialist or even a Communist by many unthinking, spiritually dull people. The fact of the matter is, he is a devout Muslim who uses Marxist Socialist principles to deliberately and methodically break America’s back financially.  He does this because, as a Muslim, he has one ultimate goal in mind – Islamic World Domination. 


At any other time in American history and in any other election just one of the above listed truths would have prevented any other candidate from being re-elected.


Some attribute his re-election to the worst case of voter fraud in voting history. There is a lot of documented truth to that but it is not the bottom line reason why Barack Obama was re-elected.


Someone, commenting on the blatant voter fraud scandal, said, “This (election) game is rigged. No matter how hard one works to change things it just doesn’t matter.”


Well, of course it doesn’t matter how hard Americans work to change things and get ahead when they live in open rebellion before a Holy Creator, or turn a blind eye to it in nearly every segment of society. Open rebellion is always counterproductive.


This kind of fruitless effort is commonly referred to as “shoveling against the tide.”  However, the Bible refers to it as the “Laws of Sowing and Reaping.” The Laws of Sowing and Reaping will shut down and turn back the compromiser every time.  This is what they are intended to do to the deliberately sinful individual or nation.


The Church of Jesus Christ is experiencing a compounding sin-softening epidemic all across America. In place of repentance we now have Pastors who have become experts at sin management and damage control. Untold numbers of Pastors ignore Christ's command to eradicate sin, choosing rather to micro-manage it. Time and again we have seen Pastors who need to discipline or release sinful, rebellious musicians or other staff members, who refuse to do so because "I could never get along without them." 


I, Pastor John, have told more than one Pastor, "If you don't correct it, they'll have to get along without you. You could die prematurely or God will replace you with someone who will correct their sin. Why should everyone in the Church have to suffer because of the rebellious?" (Jeremiah 23:1-4)  


"Seeker Friendly" Churches refuse to use the Name of Jesus publicly because "it offends the seeker."  Their Pastors teach the people, "Although we believe in Jesus, we shouldn't talk about Him to those we're trying to reach.  Talk about God, but don't talk about Jesus."  


This Movement has spread like wildfire.  They open their doors to the world, doing everything to accommodate and not offend their worldly visitors, including not preaching Christ and Him crucified.  They make every concession for the worldly, adjusting to suit them, never requiring them to adjust to suit God and His Word.  


Rev. Billy Graham said it best when he stated, "In our present society we do everything to not offend anyone - except God." 


These Seeker Friendly Churches turned out in droves to vote for Barack Obama and his worldly ways.  


John Hamel Ministries despises racism but will be accused of it regardless based on the next statement.  Dark-skinned Pastors and Christians supported Barack Obama by the multiple millions in spite of his anti-Bible, anti-Christian, anti-morality and pro-abortion agenda, voting for him based solely on the color of his skin and his culture. This was one of the most blatant manifestations of racism in Black American Christian history. 


Beneath the surface in most local Churches fornication and adultery dominate. Many Pastors are aware of it and dare not do anything to correct it.  Homosexuality is being normalized and ordained to Ministry by many mainline Christian denominations in the name of "Christian love." 


Moral ministers who do call attention to sexual sin are scolded, persecuted, ostracized or shunned by those who condone it. Preaching what the New Testament says about sexual sin and immorality is now referred to as "hate speech" even by Christians.  Ministers and Believers who take strong stands against this or any type of sin are now referred to as "Christian bullies."


Thirty-five hundred abortions are performed on a daily basis, equal to one abortion every minute and a half,  all across America year after year after year, totaling hundreds of millions of innocent lives lost solely for convenience since this country was founded. Sixty-eight percent of all abortions are performed on women who profess Christ as their Savior.


Capital punishment for those convicted beyond a reasonable doubt is scoffed. (Genesis 9:6) Criminals and abusers have more protections and rights than their victims. There has never been a time in all of human history when wrong was called right, and right was called wrong, as it is today.


Christian America tampers with Israel’s security in defiance of God’s warning that to lift one’s hand against Israel is to lift one’s hand against the God Who created Israel. (Genesis 12:3; Jeremiah 12:14-16; Zechariah 12:1-5)


God has been banned from practically everything in His own created nation.


The U.S. Treasury is now producing money which no longer bears the inscription "In God We Trust."


A Christmas manger display is considered more offensive than an “art” gallery displaying Christ’s Passion on the Cross immersed in a jar of urine.


All of the above reasons and many, many more, are how the most inane, sinful, dishonest, inexperienced, ineffective, anti-Christ spirit President in American history was re-elected in a predominantly Christian nation.



 "The Stranger That Is Within Thee"  


“For only when Your judgments are in the Earth will the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God).” (Isaiah 26:9, Amplified Bible)  


Barack Hussein Obama’s re-election is the allowed judgment of God through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.


However, most Christians, including "big name" Ministers, appear to be unaware of the fact that America is presently under the judgment of God. Most continue to favor the "Just Keep It Positive" Gospel, ignoring Jesus' Gospel of repentance, rushing headlong into compounding judgment as a horse rushes into battle.


"They hold fast deceit, they refuse to return ... no man repented of his wickedness ... everyone turned to his course, as the horse rushes into battle ... but my people know not the judgment of the Lord." (Jeremiah 8:5-7)


This President, once a tool of warning, is now a tool of judgment in the hands of a Creator God Who is not only the Christians’ loving Benefactor and faithful Father, but also their Lawgiver and Judge.  


"One only is the Lawgiver and Judge Who is able to save and to destroy [the One Who has the absolute power of life and death]." (James 4:12 Amplified Bible)


Even as the Pharaoh Kings of Egypt, Babylon and Assyria were tools in the hands of God to bring Israel to repentance through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, this present American President is a tool in the hands of God to bring Christian America to repentance. 


As a result of rebellion, disobedience to and rejection of the Word of God, Christian America has now found herself with a President whom the Bible refers to as “the stranger that is within thee.” 


"But it shall come to pass if thou will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God ... that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee ... the stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low." (Deuteronomy 28:15, 43) 


"The stranger that is within thee" is a curse in the form of oppressive leadership which God warned Israel would be set over them or any nation that defied Him even as America has.


We believe "the stranger that is within thee" has been delivered to our White House through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping as a direct result of Christian America's blatant rebellion against the Most High God.  


Shockingly, Christian voters and many popular Preachers of the Gospel rebelliously endorsed him, voted for him and were used to place him there initially.  


Even more shockingly, many of them insisted they did the right thing and endorsed him for a second term in spite of his now proven pro-death, pro-homosexuality, anti-Christian and anti-Israel policies.



America's Most Anti-Christian & Anti-America President Ever


President Barack Hussein Obama is the most Biblically-hostile, anti-Christian, anti-Israel President in America's history. He has arrogantly embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, founders of Hezbollah and Hamas.  Both of these violent organizations are committed to Israel's annihilation. 


Barack Obama refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance or to place his hand over his heart while others do so.  


He is in the process of shredding our beloved, God-given Constitution, referring to himself as the “Living Constitution” and deconstructing our government and its balanced system of laws with Marxist principles. 


Since he became President, America has experienced the most rapid deterioration of morals and laws in her history. 


Barack Obama is single-handedly attempting to replace our Congress with corrupt, hand-picked Czars and discreetly, but whole-heartedly, cooperating with the Islamization of America, including the legalization of violent, murderous Islamic Sharia Law.


President Barack Hussein Obama secretly negotiates behind closed doors with Muslim terrorist groups in our White House. The violent Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated not only our White House but our State Department without a single shot being fired.


The Nation of Islam has decreed Jihad (Holy War) against our once strong, proud Christian Nation even as they have against Israel.  America is under constant threat of further violent terrorist attacks similar to those which occurred in September of 2001. 


Christian America is now under Islamic attack from without and from within, all as a direct result of her refusal to repent for a long-standing compendium of national sins.



Hyper-Grace and Terrorism


To further compound Christian America's problems, a very large segment of the Body of Christ has fallen under the strong delusion of a young "grace" Preacher from Singapore. This young man has deceived multitudes of Bible-illiterate Christians into believing that America's sins do not need to be confessed for they are "automatically forgiven by the Blood of Jesus Christ." This popular false doctrine is commonly known as Hyper-Grace.  


The Hyper-Grace Preacher has stated that American Pastors who teach God is judging America are finding support amongst the terrorists in the caves of Afghanistan and all around the world.  He said the Taliban and the terrorists love to hear Pastors preaching the judgment of God because it gives them the moral support they need to continue in their assault upon America.


What this Hyper-Grace Preacher is saying is that American Pastors who fearlessly withstand his false grace teaching are fueling the fires of terrorism against Americans. He calls all American Pastors who refute him "friends of the terrorists." He actually blames the terrorist attacks against America not on America's sins, but on America's "judgment" preaching Pastors. 


Let me be clear. Satan has gotten a hold of this young Minister and Bible-illiterate, self-indulgent American Christians so lack discernment they are not seeing it - yet.


The least amount of Biblical correction concerning this young Minister's error is almost always met with the erroneous cry of "Touch not Mine anointed and do My Prophets no harm."   


Satan is using the young Hyper-Grace Preacher to keep the Body of Christ in America off guard.  This is to prevent them from seeing that Barack Hussein Obama and his Bible-trashing, Constitution-thrashing, freedom-slashing dictator-type rule is indeed the allowed Judgment of a Loving God upon America to bring her to repentance for her sins.  Sins of arrogantly throwing Holy God, our Protector and Provider, out of our society, multiple millions of abortions, rampant fornication and adultery within the Church, the normalization of homosexuality in every realm of our existence and refusing to defend Israel at all costs. 


These are all sins that the Hyper-Grace Preacher insists are "automatically forgiven and must not be repented of."  


America is under a two-pronged spiritual and political attack and only national repentance will save her.


"The only thing that can save America from the judgment of God is genuine repentance ... a turning (back) to God." Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin



The Misappropriation of God-Given Resources 


The present judgment upon America through the re-election of Mr. Obama could very likely have been avoided had only extremely wealthy Christian television executives and popular, extremely wealthy, influential Ministers properly used their God-given resources to call Christian America to repentance before this man could be re-elected. 


For whatever their fear-based reasons, they simply did not bother to do so. They proudly continued in their pursuit of using their great wealth and influence to further increase their great wealth and influence. What an indictment!


We personally watched during the first term of “The Obama Administration. Phase One. Warning” to see who would be the ones to use their tremendous God-given resources to full-bore call America to repentance to prevent a four-year administration of warning from turning into an eight-year administration of judgment.


We also noticed when Mr. Obama ran for re-election, once again, none of the wealthy Christian TV executives or high-profile wealthy Ministers used their influence and resources to prevent the re-election of Barack Obama by preaching the message of Christian American repentance, with the exception of 94-year-old Billy Graham. 


Not even one of the wealthy Ministers, some whom we supported for decades and once held in the highest esteem, took their cue from Rev. Graham. He invested millions of Ministry dollars, purchasing full page ads in twenty-six major newspapers across the country, imploring Christian America to repent in their hearts, to come to the polls and vote Christian values in order to keep this evil administration of warning from advancing into an administration of judgment.  


Rev. Graham also embarked upon the largest, most expensive and extensive campaign of his Ministry through what is called "Matthew and Friends."  Five months before the re-election of Barack Obama, from his living room by Cable television and Internet he reached out to the largest audience in his history, attempting to transform America by reaching at least 50,000 Churches and asking 300,000 Americans to open their homes to train people for a great revival that will transform America. 


He also wrote a public letter to Christian America asking them to repent for their pride, self-indulgence, shamelessness for sin and told them they were "deceived." Quite obviously, Rev. Graham was not even slightly concerned that doing so would diminish the size of his mailing list or hinder financial support coming in. He listened to the Holy Spirit, obeyed his heart and at great expense and effort reached out to his backslidden country.  


No one in Ministry, regardless of their wealth or influence, even came close to what Rev. Graham did.  Had they done so, many more backslidden Christian Americans would have been reached and would have repented and God's first choice for President would most likely have been achieved.


Many tremendously wealthy Ministers of the Gospel are still not getting the message that God gives great wealth for great service to the Kingdom, not for great status for oneself. Many continue to selfishly reject the counsel of their own father in the faith, Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, who stated, "Ministers should not live in extravagant homes or drive extravagant automobiles. It offends and injures many." Dr. Hagin was absolutely right. More people are turned off to Jesus than are turned on to Jesus by the extreme, un-Biblical teaching which we call "Hyper-Prosperity." 


See Dr. Hagin's book "The Midas Touch. A Balanced Approach to Biblical Prosperity" for his excellent Bible teaching on where his own spiritual offspring have gone extremely wrong concerning faith and finances.


Christian television executives and Gospel Ministers are intended of God to be like burning candles.  They are to consume themselves while lighting the way for others.  Unfortunately, many of them are in the business of consuming others while lighting the way mostly for themselves.  


Theirs will be the stricter judgment when all is said and done. (James 3:1)


This is just another reason why the spirit of anti-Christ was allowed to maintain its death grip on Christian America as a result of the 2012 Presidential election.


Christian America allowed it, so God had no choice but to allow it for America’s ultimate good.


Sometimes judgment is the only way men and nations learn to bow to a Holy God.


Christian America is being snow-jobbed by Satanic heresies such as Hyper-Prosperity, Hyper-Grace, Universal Reconciliation and the Deification of Man. This is why an avalanche of God's judgment has come to America.  



Unbelief, Extreme Compromise and Sin in Our Own "Faith Camp"

Somebody said, "Brother Hamel, you should just leave matters such as these with the Lord." No, not when the Bible instructs you and me both to do otherwise. People running from and turning a blind eye to these types of problems in the name of "Touch not Mine anointed" is what allows them to fester and worsen, weakening the Body from within and giving Satan a legal foothold. 

This is why the Apostle Paul quickly, publicly, strongly and unapologetically  rebuked the Apostle Peter for his hypocrisy as a spiritual leader. Then the Holy Spirit had it recorded in the Bible so the Body could read it, heed the warning and obediently follow Paul's example. (Galatians 2:11-14) 

There needs to be much greater Biblical and moral clarity on this issue. In Psalm 105:15 where the Psalmist wrote, "Touch not My anointed and do My prophets no harm," the Holy Spirit was not saying we should not rebuke spiritual leaders for deliberately doing what is wrong. He was saying we should never rebuke them for deliberately doing what is right. 

Paul never feared being black-balled or shunned for obeying God and rebuking open sin in spiritual leadership and neither should we. Paul always obeyed God and did what was best for the Church, not just what he thought was best for his Ministry. Paul went so far as to openly name those who had made shipwreck of their faith in order to prevent others from following them into sin. (1 Timothy 1:18-20; 2 Timothy 4:14) He also instructed the Body to publicly rebuke spiritual leaders who live in sin setting a bad example for others.

Look here at 1 Timothy 5:17-21 in the Amplified Bible for greater clarity on confronting the dangerous and damaging issue of spiritual leaders who defiantly live in spiritual pride and sin, refusing to repent.

"The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, 'Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain,' and 'The worker deserves his wages.'  Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.  Those (elders) who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning.  I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism."

To allow spiritual leadership to continue unchecked in blatant, open, even published sin because of former good works for Christ and to not rebuke them publicly as commanded in the Bible is to show partiality and favoritism. Paul charged us in the sight of God, Jesus and the angels, DO NOT DO THAT! To do so puts one in a position of great disobedience to the Holy Spirit - a position in which no one would ever want to find themselves. That's one spiritual equation I am determined to never find myself on the wrong side of. 

We would like to share just a few more striking illustrations, of which there are many more, from within our own "faith camp," as to why Christian America has come under the judgment of God.  Many other Christian denominations, organizations and Churches are also guilty of compounding crimes against a Holy God and are also in need of serious stall mucking, but we would like to speak from within our own "Word of Faith" company.


We have been involved in "Word of Faith" and "Pentecostal" Ministry individually and together for well over thirty years.  During this time we have witnessed some of the most astounding, flagrant, un-repented of unbelief and sin in Spirit-filled Believers and Ministers, including high-profile national Ministers.  Withholding names, in order to not unnecessarily further humiliate anyone, we will give just a few brief examples followed by one of the most astounding examples of extreme compromise, stubbornly refusing to repent when wrong and foolish human pride in spiritual leadership that we have ever witnessed.  


By the time you finish reading through them you will no longer wonder why God's judgment has come to Christian America. Judgment not just upon mainline denominations who are ordaining homosexual Ministers and some whose Ministers have been molesting children in record numbers for decades.  But judgment upon Word of Faith and Pentecostal Ministers and Believers who claim greater knowledge of God's Word and greater anointing of His Spirit than most, yet they defy what they know by their actions. 


The Bible says, "Judgment begins in the House of God" and that includes the Pentecostal, Word of Faith and Charismatic House of God, possibly above all others.


Child molestation and rape, its cover-up and justification continues to be a problem handled dishonestly and even illegally by Word of Faith and other related Ministries. Integrity issues, including serious moral issues, plague both high-profile and low-profile Word of Faith Ministries. 


Sadly, anyone who obeys the Apostle Paul's above commands to bring these issues out into the sunlight where the rot, mold and mildew can be curtailed are all too often labeled as self-righteous, unloving, judgmental and then shunned, even black-balled.  Regardless, for the sake of the health of the entire Body of Christ, out into the cleansing sunlight these issues must be brought.


Many prideful Word of Faith Ministers and Believers have continued to wrongly interpret much time given to repent as an unwillingness on God's part to allow them to be judged. God's patience, mercy and continual warnings seem only to embolden them to harden their hearts even further. Such was the case with Pharaoh. (Exodus 5:1-12:31)


Refusing to comply with Paul's admonition to judge themselves in order to avoid being judged, they are more and more finding themselves coming under the judgment of God. (1 Corinthians 11:30-32)


Those who continue to refuse to cry out in repentance shall surely face the fire of God's judgment.  


The specific examples which will follow are not merely isolated incidents. Everywhere we go in life and Ministry we find the most extreme compromise within the Church. Neither are these examples given to be critical. They are given according to Paul's solemn charge in order that the reader may better understand the degree to which un-repented of sin festers in Christ's Body, including its leadership, and why Christian America is indeed being judged as promised. 


"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?" (1 Peter 4:17)


Christians are to respectfully withstand and withdraw support from openly backslidden leadership which is too prideful and rebellious to submit to spiritual authorities themselves when they are wrong. This is the Apostle Paul's solemn charge to all believers in Jesus Christ.


"Those (spiritual leaders) who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning.  I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism." (1 Timothy 5:20,21 Amp)


The era of damage control and sin management within "The Dirty Church" is quickly coming to an end!



Million Dollar Sex Settlements & the Worst Pastoral Counsel Ever  


The aggressive homosexual Pastor of an Atlanta mega-Church settled out of court for millions of Gospel-intended dollars with four of his victims' families within his Church. The fallen Pastor refused to step down and submit to any type of discipline. He refused to submit to a period of restoration where unsupervised time with children would be forbidden. He refused to go through a period of rebuilding broken trust with his shattered congregation. Rather, he made immediate plans for Ministry expansion. 


Thousands fled his Church seeking refuge elsewhere, including a nearby Word of Faith mega-Church. From the pulpit the Word of Faith Pastor told the refugees and their families to "go back" to the impenitent homosexual Pastor because "that man is my friend."  He put friendship with a neighboring, fallen, highly immoral Shepherd over protection of Christ's sheep.  The Word of Faith Pastor told the fleeing families that they were being "self-righteous" and "judgmental" by not continuing to submit to their impenitent, immoral Pastor.  He boldly and arrogantly told those seeking refuge in his Church, "We don't want you here!" as his own Word of Faith mega-Church congregation wildly cheered and applauded him.  The wounded spiritual refugees were humiliated, rejected and driven out by the Pastor and his congregation's ungodly lack of compassion. 


If it is "self-righteous" and "judgmental" to take your family and flee from an aggressive homosexual Pastor who forces himself on your children in exchange for money, trips, gifts and jewelry, then the Apostle Paul was judgmental.  He told Believers to not even take a meal with such a person - let alone submit to them as spiritual authorities. (1 Corinthians 5:1-13)  


The homosexual Pastor and the Word of Faith Pastor have yet to publicly repent for this travesty.  Since that time the Word of Faith Pastor has been arrested on domestic violence charges and one of his key Church leaders was shot dead in the Church building during a prayer meeting. 



A Decade of Child Molestation 


A popular and exceptionally successful Word of Faith Pastor and Administrator of a Christian school had eleven boys between the ages of 6 and 11 molested by his Youth Minister and Physical Education Teacher over a ten year period under his watch.  The Youth Minister was finally caught and convicted and is presently serving 15 to 20 years in a penitentiary.  When the Pastor was asked why he did not pick up on the many signs others were seeing, indicating a problem with the Youth Minister, the Pastor responded, "Some people are just above reproach."  


A spiritual leader should realize that no one, including himself, is above reproach with the exception of Jesus Christ.  


The Pastor continues to blame-shift, side-step and refuse to accept responsibility for what occurred in his Church. 


According to one of the now grown victims the Pastor attempted to coerce him into admitting that, as an 11-year old boy, he had actually initiated the problem by seducing the Youth Minister. Although such an admission may not have reversed the court's decision against the Pastor, it at least appears the Pastor was hoping such an admission would clear him of any guilt in the eyes of his congregation. 


In the world this is called "weaseling." Ministers of Jesus Christ do not do this. 


The Pastor settled out of court with multiple families for millions of dollars. The once thriving school ultimately closed and because of the fallout and the resulting mass exodus, the Pastor was forced to step down as well. 



Since When Is Child Rape Not Child Abuse?


A popular and equally as successful Word of Faith Pastor and Administrator of a mega-Church, Bible School, Elementary and High School had two children raped by Church employees inside the Church facilities.  When one of the children reported being raped to a staff member, it was decided by other staff members that they would wait before notifying the mother and involving the police. They allowed two weeks to pass. This was done in spite of knowing Oklahoma state law requires even suspicion of child rape to be reported immediately.  That state law exists in order to keep evidence from deteriorating if indeed there has been a rape.  


One of the children raped reported that a Church staff member pressured her to confess that she brought the rape upon herself. The child was only 13 years old at the time of the rape. 


According to court documentation the Pastor and her family/staff members allegedly continued to refuse to accept responsibility for the children having been raped on Church property under their watch. They continued to defend themselves by arguing what occurred does not specifically come under their State's "child abuse" laws because the laws do not specify in writing the specific acts of rape performed on the child. 


That is not leadership. That is not Christianity.  


As of this writing the accused Church staff members await sentencing for their alleged crimes. Time alone will tell what will happen to the Pastor, the Church, the Bible School, the Elementary and High School and all other Ministry outreaches.  


One sex offender awaits trial.  The other has been sentenced to 55 years in a Federal penitentiary.



A Prophet's Immoral Wedding Ceremony, Proud Boast of Virility & Tragic Judgment


A popular and successful Word of Faith Prophet and his wife performed an immoral wedding ceremony, marrying a Pastor to that Pastor's daughter-in-law.  This was done in spite of the Pastor's son's (and his siblings') pleas for the Prophet to not cooperate with their father in such a bizarre, ungodly plan.  While his son was away serving his country the Pastor encouraged his daughter-in-law and young grandchild to move in with him in order for her to help care for his dying wife.  Once the Pastor's ailing wife died, he convinced his daughter-in-law to divorce her husband (his son) and marry him.  She agreed. 


The Pastor's congregation was so outraged by the immorality of the situation, the wedding had to be moved out of state to the Prophet's Church in California. 


The Prophet and his wife later lost many of their own church members upon their congregation's realization of what they had done by performing the immoral ceremony.  


You will later read of this same Prophet boasting in a Minister's Conference of his ability to sexually satisfy his wife who was twenty years his junior.  


As Spirit-filled Believers who claim knowledge of God's Word and His Spirit, this is not the type of brush we want to be painting ourselves with.  


As Dr. Billy Graham indicated, these behaviors lack reverence, are unacceptable in spiritual leadership and have further served to bring Christian America to judgment. 


Sadly, the above-mentioned errant Prophet later lost his life when his jet fell from the sky as he traveled from one meeting to another.  Although his tragic, premature death was celebrated as a glorious home-going, it was no such thing. It was the allowed judgment of God on a fallen Prophet who had difficulty always obeying God, difficulty walking in love towards his fellowman and great difficulty repenting immediately when he had done something wrong.  I, myself, was used of God to bring him words of correction in these areas to no avail.  He had also developed a reputation amongst his fellow Ministers of having become "money-minded."


To further compound his problem with disobedience, this man also frequently allowed his spouse to control his Prophet's Ministry, even to the point of allowing her to override his Holy Spirit directed decisions.  The Lord Jesus Christ Himself sent an angel to tell Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, concerning those who would try to control his Prophet's Ministry, that He did not want him to be controlled by anyone else.  Jesus said He would speak to and direct Prophet Hagin personally in his Ministry.  He told Prophet Hagin that he was to be the head of his own Ministry and not someone else, regardless of who it may be. See the book "I Believe in Visions" page 125.   


Our Benevolent Father has a caring history of allowing judgment to finally come upon unrepentant fallen ministers who refuse to listen to His repeated warnings. This is true with Prophets, in particular, once He determines they are doing more harm than good to the Body. He will remove their candlestick, stripping them of what power they have left. (Revelation 2:5)  Depending on the severity of the situation, such allowed judgment can sometimes include premature death. (1 Corinthians 5:2-5)  Jesus also explained this to Prophet Kenneth E. Hagin during a personal visitation after Prophet Hagin himself had to be judged for disobedience. See the book "I Believe in Visions" by Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, page 96.



Ministry, Homosexuality & "Massage for Missions"


The authors are very well acquainted with two Word of Faith Pastors, both married, with very successful Spirit-filled Churches who were engaging in an ongoing homosexual relationship. Pastor John Hamel has continued to confront them, urging them to repent, to no avail.  


In one of those two Churches the youth raised money for mission trips by giving massages in the basement of the Church to local residents of the community. This "Massage Fund Raising Event for Missions" was boldly advertised on the Church website. The sin-deceived Pastor seemed to have no idea or did not care that he was opening his youth and his family up to an infestation of evil spirits. (Ephesians 6:12) His own children fell into immorality as well. 


To this day neither Pastor has repented and both continue conducting their Ministries. 



Christian Television, Homosexuality, Hush Money & Ultra-Extravagant Lifestyles


An ordained Pentecostal Minister of the Gospel, Founder and CEO of the world's largest Christian television network paid multiple millions of Gospel-intended dollars in "hush money" to silence a man with whom he had a homosexual relationship. He then refused to step down for an extended period of restoration. 


He has also purchased numerous multi-million dollar mansions across the United States, with Gospel-intended dollars, for personal use.


His family member employees, apart from their exorbitant salaries, receive additional annual expense accounts greater than the value of the average American home.


Prior to his traveling on to Heaven in late 2013 he refused to publicly repent to his millions of supporters for misusing their Gospel-intended dollars for sinful, self-indulgent living. (Matthew 5:23-26)



Carnality, Contempt for Old Glory & Lack of Consecration


A well-known Word of Faith Bible School Dean and Pastor posted suggestive modeling photographs of her young daughter on the Internet, praising her attractiveness. By doing so, the Pastor set one of the worst examples possible for her Spirit-filled Youth Ministry and Church, as well as all the students who attend her Bible School.  


The daughter was sensually posing while lying on an American flag which had been strewn on the floor.  This demonstrated complete contempt and disrespect not only for our flag but for other young people, unlike herself, who died defending the freedoms that highly-esteemed flag represents.  


True Spirit-filled American Christians would never allow their flag to be thrown on the floor and laid upon for any reason, let alone for something such as this. Not only is it disrespectful to those who have died to defend it, it is illegal to throw it on the ground or the floor, burn it, tear it or deface it in any way. Any such behavior is punishable by as much as a $1,000.00 fine and up to one year in a federal prison.  To violate United States law in this way is to defy the Bible and the Law of God. (Romans 13:1-8)


The same Bible School Dean and Pastor posted openly on FaceBook a very disrespectful prayer asking Holy God if it would be permissible to substitute chocolate cake to represent Christ's broken Body during the communion service. Christians, leaders in particular, must solemnly realize that every time we partake of the Lord's Supper we are re-enacting the death of the Master. This is no time for frivolity, cuteness or levity. We must never allow familiarity to breed contempt for what the Lord has suffered for us in His Passion.


Listen to what the Bible says about demonstrating absolute reverence for the Lord's Supper at all times.


"Anyone who eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Master irreverently is like part of the crowd that jeered and spit on Him at His death. Is that the kind of 'remembrance' you want to be part of? Examine your motives, test your heart, come to this meal in holy awe.


"If you give no thought (or worse, don't care) about the broken Body of the Master when you eat and drink, you're running the risk of serious consequences. That's why so many of you even now are listless and sick, and others have gone to an early grave. If we get this straight now, we won't have to be straightened out later on. 


"Better to be confronted by the Master now than to face a fiery confrontation later. So, my friends, when you come together to the Lord's Table be reverent and courteous with one another." (1 Corinthians 11:27-33 MSG)


The Pastor seemed completely unconcerned that she was teaching her Bible School students and congregation contempt for the United States of America, contempt for modesty and Bible morality and most importantly of all, contempt for the sanctity of the Lord's Supper. 


Some things Christians must never esteem lightly. 


One of those is the Lord's Supper.  


Another is the American flag which represents the millions of baby-faced teenagers who go away to do the hard things, many of them never returning.  They make this sacrifice in order that the rest of us may go anywhere in the world and do the easy things. For this we owe them the utmost respect.  


Her public sins remain un-repented of. 


This Pastor's spiritual father in the faith, Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, is the same man who said, "There is nothing more lacking today in the Charismatic Movement than commitment, consecration and respect for the things of God."



Canine Water Baptizing in the Name of the Trinity


In a 2014 Believers Convention one extremely popular Word of Faith Preacher, also known for his regular comedy routines in his preaching, made a mockery of obese people.  He humiliated them with course jesting and poor humor - all at the expense of God's Word.  Every obese person present was made a gazing-stock as they were sacrificed on this Preacher's Altar of Comedy. 


Humor in preaching is just fine as long as it is never done at the expense of suffering human beings and, most particularly, the written Word of God. Anyone struggling with obesity and seeking salvation in Christ in this particular service was sent home in shame and utter embarrassment all for a few guffaws.  


As if that was not bad enough, this Brother, in the very same service, made an utter mockery of the Ordinance of Water Baptism with a shockingly disrespectful testimony of the water baptism of a German Shepherd dog - all in the Name of God the Father, Jesus the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 


This is indefensible.


Water Baptism is the means through which Born Again believers identify with the horrific death, heart-breaking burial and glorious resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  


Water Baptism is one of two Church Ordinances left to us by Jesus Christ. 


The second Church Ordinance is the Communion Table.  


Neither should ever be treated or referred to with the immature, Godless contempt of the chocolate cake Minister mentioned above or the comedian, popular prosperity Preacher. 


This same comedian Preacher also teaches such false doctrines as "God told me He created Himself and threw away the mold," "Adam, not God, gave life to all animals," "God didn't know what He was doing when He created animals" and "God had Adam name the animals because He didn't know what they were."


These statements all reveal that this popular prosperity Preacher / Comedian dares to challenge not only the written Word of God but the Infinity of God, the Omnipotence of God and the Omniscience of God. 


It is the Godly duty of every true man and woman of God to obey the solemn charge of the Apostle Paul and demand that disrespect and lack of reverence for the things of God, as well as false doctrine, be put out of the Church of Jesus Christ. However, many Ministers do not obey Paul's solemn charge, particularly when it comes to popular prosperity Preachers. This is the reason judgment has now begun in the House of God. 



Plagiarizing Copyrighted Material for God?


The authors personally know a Word of Faith Bible School Dean who was caught plagiarizing another Minister's copyrighted materials in order to acquire and maintain his position as the Dean of that Bible School.  He used hundreds of the other Minister's sermons and manuscripts to misrepresent himself to the Bible School leadership. 


He also took a number of the other Minister's Internet articles, replacing the author's name with his own, publishing them on his website. 


The head Administrator of the Bible School was notified by the plagiarized Minister of what his new Dean had done. Regardless, the Administrator chose to continue to work with the compromised Dean because the hijacked materials were profitable to the teaching of his students.


Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, a mentor to both of these men, had multiple appearances of Jesus Christ. In one of those appearances Jesus said to him, "Kenneth, you aren't going to like this, but anyone who isn't wholly submitted to me is wholly submitted to Satan."


The Administrator and the Dean have now left the Bible students who submit to them wide open to the same evil spirits they are submitting to.  


Both the Dean's and the Administrator's sins remain un-repented of. 


Update: Within one year of the authors sharing the above report, the Bible School Dean had his visa unexpectedly rejected by the Bolivian government. He was forced to give up his position in the Bible School and leave the country immediately. God will not be mocked. We do indeed reap what we sow.



Lying about Miracles & Exaggerating for the Glory of God


A now deceased, world-renown Pentecostal Missionary Evangelist for decades continued to testify of his wife raising a child from the dead.  


Witnesses to the account report the child was not dead. Initially in his own publication the child was reported as "dying."  Soon after, in another of his own publications, as well as from the pulpit, the testimony suddenly changed to "the child was a corpse" and "raised from the dead."  The authors witnessed both false testimonies.


In a December 2006 Charisma Magazine Heroes of Faith article entitled "He Dared to Touch the World," this Minister and his daughter also gave deliberately and grossly exaggerated witness that for 53 years each and every one of his overseas crusades averaged one-quarter to one-half million souls in attendance.  Yet, for decades prior to the Charisma Magazine interview, his own publications reported only tens of thousands in attendance on average. 


Apparently, in the age of Super-Evangelism, the Minister yielded to a spirit of pride and comparison and decided it was time for a recount. Only this time the recount would not simply include heads. This time the recount would include fingers and toes. 


The world-renown Minister's daughter, also an Evangelist and married, has for over twenty years been carrying on a not-so-secret lesbian relationship with one of her co-ministers. The authors, related to the Evangelist by marriage, have continued to confront her over this period of time to no avail.


The world-renown Minister himself, right up until the time of his passing in 2013, continued to refuse to repent for the public, untrue corpse testimony and the grotesquely exaggerated Charisma Magazine crusade accounts in spite of the authors' continual, respectful pleadings for him to please do so.


Allah calls himself "the best of all deceivers" and encourages his Muslim followers to lie for his glory. Qu'ran (3:54; 16:106)  It is called "taqiyya" which means "holy lying."  


Jesus Christ revealed that lying comes from Satan and is not holy. He forbids it of His followers. (John 8:44; Colossians 3:9)


When Christian America's national Ministers lead by lying and blatant immorality, they play a direct role in the judgment of their nation, including this present Islamic Jihad (Holy War) which has been declared against America.


It is called seed-time and harvest-time or "The Laws of Sowing and Reaping."


For Pentecostal and Word of Faith Ministers to believe that their dishonest, immoral behaviors and lifestyles have nothing to do with their nation coming under the judgment of God is unrealistic and a very special kind of stupid.  Almighty God gives His family authority over blind and deaf spirits but He Himself is not a blind and deaf Spirit! 


It is highly insulting to Holy God when His children trample their Blood bought authority underfoot by putting the building of their own personal legacies above the building of Christ's legacy and God's Kingdom.



Racism, Pride, Stubbornness & Scattered Sheep


One of the Word of Faith Movement's most prominent leaders, Bible School administrators and himself a Caucasian, made the most horrific racist statements to ever come out of the mouth of a Born Again, Spirit-filled Minister of the Gospel. 


Standing before his own multi-cultural congregation, he grievously stated that black and white Believers of the opposite sex should never be seen alone together in public.  He also stated that they should not date, inferring that people would automatically assume that the darker-skinned of the two would be imposing their immoral sexual desire on the lighter-skinned one.  He also stated that blacks and whites should not inter-marry, and should not have children in particular, for that would be "a watering down of the races."  His multi-cultural congregation listened in disbelief. 


Hundreds of thousands of Word of Faith Believers around the globe were stunned and heartbroken when the recording of the Pastor's words was later aired on an international Christian television program. Many moved immediately, distancing themselves from the unapologetic Minister.  Others withdrew from the Word of Faith Movement entirely. Word of Faith Pastors who did not stand in their pulpits and refute the Minister's racism, lost many congregants.  No doubt, many who looked towards this man for spiritual leadership became angry with God. 


Although this revelation broke nearly two decades ago, the Minister has continued to stubbornly refuse to apologize to those he offended and severely injured. He did offer an "I'm sorry if I hurt you with what I said" to his Board Members. But to this day he continues to refuse to publicly retract his publicly-stated racist beliefs. He is sorry that he let the cat out of the bag, but he is not sorry that he holds racist beliefs. 


The Bible says all human beings share the same blood. (Acts 17:26) All share the same flesh. (1 Corinthians 15:39) All have the same mother, Eve. (Genesis 3:20) 


This means that God has only one great race - the Human Race, and not many "races." Ministers who claim knowledge of God's Word and who desire to lead people to freedom must drop the term "the races" from their vocabularies, substituting it with "cultures."  


There are many who fled not only the Word of Faith Movement but Christianity itself who would come back to God and back to Ministry if only this man would seek their forgiveness. 


We recently communicated with a Pastor friend, an African American, who said, "I can remember the shock that hit me as I sat in his sanctuary that day hearing him speak those words. I will never forget it. To tell you the truth, I don't believe I'll ever get over it, nor do I believe he will ever repent." 


The racist Minister was this man's Pastor at the time of his making those destructive statements.


Beneath the surface this type of racism prevails in Spirit-filled Christianity. When racist Believers see their leaders refuse to repent for such demonically-inspired beliefs, they see no need to do so themselves. T


he Bible School students who open themselves up to this impenitent, racist Bible School Administrator, also open themselves up to the spirit of racism.


Recently, when discussing the tragic affect the racist Minister's words have had on so many Black Christians, another hard-hearted, Caucasian Word of Faith Minister said to us, "They all just need to get over it."


With an un-Christ-like attitude such as that coming from its impenitent Ministers, it is no small wonder interest in the Word of Faith Movement worldwide is waning. The Holy Spirit simply will not go where the Blood of Jesus is not allowed to cleanse.  


This is another great big reason why Christian America is being judged and Word of Faith is a great big part of it.



Hyper-Prosperity, Rebellion & More Scattered Sheep


"Over-emphasizing or adding to what the Bible teaches inevitably does more harm than good." Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin


"I still don't know what's more outrageous: That programmers allow such insanity on Christian television or that gullible Christians fall for it year after year." J. Lee Grady, former Editor Charisma Magazine


"Now a Bishop, Superintendent, Overseer, must give no grounds for accusation but must be above reproach ... not a lover of money, insatiable for wealth and ready to obtain it by questionable means ... greedy for base gain, craving wealth and resorting to ignoble and dishonest methods of getting it." Apostle Paul (1 Timothy 3:2,3,8 AMP)


Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin is considered by many to be the proverbial "father" of the Word of Faith Movement.  Many have been blessed by his supernatural testimonies and Biblical insights, particularly concerning the message of "faith."  Dr. Hagin taught a very balanced faith message and labored diligently to keep the message of faith out of the ditch and driving right down the center of the road. Dr. Hagin taught that poverty is a curse of the Law and that Christ has redeemed Believers from the curse of the Law. (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Galatians 3:13,14, 29) Dr. Hagin taught that it is clearly God's will to prosper His obedient, faithful children. 


Unfortunately, some of the bigger name Word of Faith Ministers and Christian TV executives who came up under Dr. Hagin have hijacked his Bible messages of faith and prosperity. They have taken the prosperity message, stretched it beyond that which is reasonable and Biblical, turning it into what we call "Hyper-Prosperity."  


Hyper-Prosperity introduces doctrines which are not in the Bible.  Hyper-Prosperity makes promises God is not obligated to keep.  Hyper-Prosperity is based upon greed, not grace.  Hyper-Prosperity is a perversion of the true Bible message of "prosperity in perspective."


In early 1999, Dr. Hagin convened a special private meeting in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on the campus of RHEMA Bible Training College. His topic was concerning the extreme excess and un-Biblical error contained within the prosperity message being taught by many popular Word of Faith Ministers. 


At this time we will not name the more than twenty Ministers called into that meeting by Dr. Hagin, but if you have been around Word of Faith for any period of time, more than likely you are acquainted with many of the Ministers called in, having seen them on television, by Internet and in many cases as guests in your own Church sanctuaries. 


We were not in those meetings but the recordings were made available to us. Brother Hagin explained that he called the meeting to address some of the errors and excesses within the Word of Faith camp regarding the message of prosperity.  He provided each one with a copy of his new book "The Midas Touch. A Balanced Approach to Biblical Prosperity" which was soon to be released. 


In order to avoid strife and confusion among our ranks Dr. Hagin said that he convened the meeting to address these issues with the attendees first - the major Word of Faith Ministries who call him their spiritual father or who follow him closely and are teaching the false prosperity doctrine.  He said he wanted each one to have the opportunity to adjust their prosperity messages accordingly before the book was released to the public.  In doing so he expressed his desire to avoid contention among them.


Dr. Hagin went through the contents of his book, "The Midas Touch," with the Ministers present showing them the extreme un-Biblical doctrines many of them were wrongly teaching concerning Bible prosperity, encouraging them to repent. 


Quite apparently Dr. Hagin was doing his best to spare the errant Hyper-Prosperity Teachers shame by simply dumping his new book onto the market and humiliating them in their error.  He was quite apparently giving them opportunity to read the book, repent before the Lord, stand before the Body of Christ asking forgiveness for their extreme errors and re-teaching them what the Bible really says about prosperity and how to attain it.  


Anyone who has read "The Midas Touch" can clearly see that for the past fifteen years since Brother Hagin convened the private meeting, for the most part the major Word of Faith Ministers have not bothered to take his Biblical counsel. Neither have most of the Christian TV executives who continue to allow outrageous un-Biblical teaching because it brings in outrageous amounts of money.  Many of the smaller Ministries mimic the larger Ministries, teaching un-Biblical doctrine and making un-Biblical promises because it is making money for them as well.  


All one must do to see the extreme error of the Hyper-Prosperity message is read "The Midas Touch" very carefully.  Having done so, pick up the remote control, put on Christian television and for the next week make a note of every time someone on Christian television does or says something the book clearly revealed as un-Biblical.  It is so simple even a sixth grader can do it. To do this during a money raising "Praise-a-thon" in particular, will prove to be especially enlightening.


One of the main things Dr. Hagin addressed concerning Ministers in "The Midas Touch" is that "Ministers should not live in extravagant homes or drive extravagant automobiles. It offends and injures many."  


Many of the Ministers he addressed in that meeting, as well as those not in the meeting but to whom the book has been available, particularly the bigger television Ministries and television executives, live in absolutely extravagant multi-million dollar mansions and drive unnecessarily extravagant automobiles. 


It appears they are unwilling to repent. It appears they are unwilling to live more modest lifestyles as admonished by the Prophet.  It appears they are unwilling to make the necessary adjustments and do what is best, not only for those in the Body of Christ who trust in their Ministries, but what is best for a hurting world looking for answers. This is what Dr. Hagin referred to as "...offending and injuring many."


In that 1999 special private meeting of popular prosperity Preachers, Dr. Hagin also reminded those in attendance that they were running the risk of dying prematurely, unless they repented.  He reminded them how every excessive prosperity Preacher from the Voice of Healing Revival of the 1940s and 1950s died prematurely because they had forsaken the preaching of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ for the false gospel of excessive prosperity. Dr. Hagin made it clear to all in attendance that they were headed in the very same direction.  


Like it or not, Ministers are subject to a stricter judgment.  Most unsaved people just do not understand why a Minister would live like the Shah of Iran or where one gets the money to do so. This turns far too many people off to the Jesus the Minister is preaching.  Only Heaven will tell how many souls were lost because a Minister felt it was their "Constitutional right" to live any way they choose.


Even Ministers who were millionaires before answering the call to Ministry, or who became personal millionaires while in Ministry, must realize that with that call comes a tremendous need and responsibility to put others before themselves.  They must realize that living like Randolph Hearst is going to ask more questions than it answers, limiting the number of souls they will be able to reach.  This is just a fact of life that a Minister must accept along with the severity of his calling. 


As mentioned earlier in this chapter, many tremendously wealthy Ministers of the Gospel are still not getting the message that God gives great wealth for great service to the Kingdom, not for great status or self-indulgent living. 


Christian television executives and Gospel Ministers are intended of God to be like burning candles. They are to consume themselves while lighting the way for others. Sad to say, many of them are preoccupied with consuming others while lighting the way mostly for themselves.


Any intelligent Believer in Jesus Christ who carefully reads "The Midas Touch" will begin to realize the trouble wealthy Ministers made for themselves by rejecting Dr. Hagin's face-to-face and written counsel, continuing to live splashed out, ostentatious, extravagant lifestyles.  


Had they only listened to the Prophet's Godly admonition, toning down their exceptionally extravagant lifestyles, they would not have garnered Senator Charles Grassley's attention, instigating his Senate Finance Committee 3-year probe into alleged lavish spending.  


Although no charges were brought in the end, the investigation brought tremendous amounts of negative attention to Word of Faith and Pentecostal Ministry. It also brought about the formation of a new commission now considering limits on clergy housing and new tax rules for non-profit corporations.  


No matter how you slice it, the way Hyper-Prosperity promoters are living has caused many in the Body of Christ and most people in the world to assume Hyper-Prosperity Preachers are misusing their donations for personal gain.  


There is simply no way in the world something like that could ever help to promote the message of "Jesus Christ, the only Savior of mankind."


This is exactly why Dr. Hagin called in his spiritual offspring and implored, in essence, "Please, boys, please. Tone it down. Think of someone other than yourselves. You're doing much more harm than good."


Once in circulation "The Midas Touch" opened the eyes of many to the extreme errors of Hyper-Prosperity teaching.  As a result many began to reject the Hyper-Prosperity error for the more balanced teaching of prosperity in perspective as revealed in God's Word.  


Unfortunately, and to their shame, many if not most of the Hyper-Prosperity Teachers and adherents rebelliously rejected Dr. Hagin's balanced teaching from God's Word, choosing to stay with the profitable error. 


Covetousness continues to be dressed up as a virtue by many of them and, as Dr. Hagin stated, many lives are literally being ruined by it.  


Not only does covetousness in Ministers ruin lives, it prevents the Glory and the miracle-working power of God from coming into manifestation.



I Watched as the Emerald Green Glory Literally Turned Back & Departed


"And instantly I, John, was in the Spirit. I saw a Throne in Heaven and Someone sitting on it.  The One sitting on the Throne was as brilliant as gemstones - jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled His Throne like a rainbow." (Revelation 4:2-4)


Covetousness does not show reverence for God and reverence is key to God's presence and power.


I was once invited to be a guest speaker at a large Pentecostal denomination's annual convocation in New England. The main meetings were being held in a large auditorium situated on a Catholic college campus.  During praise and worship for one of the evening services I was standing on the platform with approximately twenty other regional Ministers. 


As I stood looking over the congregation the radiant, emerald green, incandescent Glory of God, the same emerald-colored Glory that John saw surrounding Holy God's Throne, suddenly appeared on the right side of the auditorium from the back of the room to the front. It was coming out of the massive side wall as if it were being unrolled like a giant bolt of cloth hidden behind the wall.  It was as if a lineup of invisible angels was actually pulling it right out of the wall the way a baseball grounds crew pulls a tarp over the infield during a rain delay.


As the worship continued the delicate green Glory sheet moved out over the room reaching beyond the halfway point. It hovered closely over the congregation on the right side of the room, shimmering and rippling like bright emerald green water. It was as fragile as a silk sheet carried upon a breeze and I could see through it as it hovered above the worshipping congregation. 


Being acquainted with many different manifestations of God's Glory, I knew the Holy Spirit had come to bring physical healings and other miracles to God's precious people. I was prepared in my heart to begin to call out healings as the Holy Spirit led me when the worship music abruptly stopped. 


To my left the State Bishop of this Pentecostal denomination stepped up to the pulpit and began to shout out, "Who will give $100?" When he forcefully cried out the drummer did a drum roll, a rim shot and a cymbal crash as if on cue.  The Bishop then cried out, "Who will give $200?"  Again the drummer aggressively backed him up.  The Bishop and the drummer went back and forth like this, progressively raising the amounts to be given as the Ushers quickly spread out with their buckets throughout the congregation beneath the transparent, emerald green Glory cloud.


My heart sank as I said within, "Oh Father God, no. No. Lord Jesus, no."  


As if someone hit a reverse switch, the delicate green liquid-like Glory sheet began to gently return into the wall as if it were being retracted automatically from behind the wall.  I stood watching in shock and dismay as the precious, coveted, emerald green Glory of God literally turned back, went into the wall and finally disappeared altogether. 


The Bishop received his hyper-offering that night.  


However, the sick did not receive their healings. The oppressed did not receive their deliverance and the needy returned home without their much needed miracles.


Sadly, the Holy Spirit of God is being deeply grieved by behaviors just like this in public meetings and by Christian television all across America, and in other nations of the world, by local, national and international Ministries. Until it is openly repented of and cut off we will not only have to learn to live without manifestations of God's power, but we will also have to be prepared to face His continuing judgment.


When the Glory of God was in manifestation through the Prophet Elisha, resulting in Namaan's supernatural healing from leprosy, Namaan attempted to give Elisha money.  Emphatically and repeatedly the Prophet Elisha refused. 


Once Namaan had departed, Elisha's servant Gehazi ran after him. Catching up with Namaan, Gehazi lied and told him that Elisha had changed his mind and now wanted silver and garments.  Grateful for his healing, Namaan readily complied.  


When Gehazi returned to Elisha, the Holy Spirit revealed to the Prophet what his servant had done. Elisha strongly rebuked Gehazi, reminding him that when the Glory of God is in manifestation it is not the time to receive money or gifts. He then pronounced a curse on Gehazi. 


"The leprosy therefore of Namaan shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed forever.  And Gehazi went out from Elisha's presence a leper as white as snow." (2 Kings 5:1-27)


Raising money when the Glory and power of God are in manifestation can indeed prove to be extremely costly, even dangerous. 


The Glory of God came in one of the most powerful manifestations I have yet to witness, and I have witnessed many, as I stood on that platform in New England. It was the Holy Spirit coming to supernaturally meet the needs of His people. 


Because He was so obviously grieved and literally turned back by the Bishop's spiritually insensitive, aggressive raising of money in His presence, one must ask the sobering question, "What is happening on an even greater scale all across America and around the world, in local Churches, larger conventions and Christian television as Hyper-Prosperity Ministers relentlessly hammer away at the 'giving to get' message?"


We will not go any further as to why we believe Hyper-Prosperity Ministers, some of whom we once greatly respected, are no longer affectively gathering for Christ but rather they are now scattering. 


"He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad." (Matthew 12:30)  


But we will say it is unrealistic to believe that the erroneous message of Hyper-Prosperity does not factor into the overall present judgment of God upon Christian America.


Covetousness and lusting after money and possessions factored into Gehazi's judgment and it directly factors into Christian America's present judgment. 


The extreme error of Hyper-Prosperity and the "giving to get" teaching has definitely caught the attention of Holy God in one of the most negative ways possible, even as Hyper-Grace has. 


Holy God does not appreciate when wealth and riches given by Him for the worldwide propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is overly used by many of His once-trusted servants for status and not for service.


No one is perfect, including the authors. Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone. 


It is even alright to be wrong, but it is not alright to stay wrong once you finally see you are wrong. This is particularly true when God sends a seasoned Prophet to correct you from His Word, such as was the case when He sent Prophet Kenneth E. Hagin to correct many of today's most popular Hyper-Prosperity Ministers. Sadly, for the most part, Dr. Hagin's Biblical admonition was and is still rejected by them.  


Word of Faith leadership and disciples have become notorious for holding out and not repenting when they are wrong. What an indictment!


The Bible instructs Believers in Jesus Christ to develop the wonderful habit of repenting and receiving forgiveness immediately. 


"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)  


Sadly, far, far too many Ministers and Christians have developed the ugly habit of blame-shifting, soft-soaping, justifying and pridefully refusing to repent when they know they are wrong.  When God lovingly sends someone to correct them in their stubbornness, many immediately begin to find fault with their corrector.  Dr. Hagin referred to this behavior as "the babyhood stages of Christianity." 


Dr. Hagin also wisely said, "Be quick to forgive. Quick to repent and quick to believe God's Word."


Dr. Lester Sumrall once said, "I am often amazed at what some people will put themselves and others through just to avoid five minutes of soul-cleansing shame."


The Word of Faith Movement has become noted for serious integrity problems amongst their most popular leaders. This needs to be addressed.  Even as a local congregation will never rise higher than the Pastor's standards, so, too, the national Body of Christ will never rise higher than its highly-visible national Ministers' standards. 


Ministry leaders must keep their lives Biblical, clean and above reproach at all times, repenting immediately when they are wrong. 


They must forever keep in mind that people submitting to them is similar to plugging an IV into themselves. Whatever is in the Minister's life will trickle down into their lives.  


This is why the Bible says that Ministers will incur a stricter judgment when they stand before the Master, Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:10; James 3:1)  


Extreme compromise, stubbornly refusing to repent when wrong and foolish human pride have now gone well beyond grieving God and costing the Body of Christ, and most importantly the perishing world, manifestations, demonstrations and operations of the Holy Spirit. They have also literally served to bring this present judgment upon Christian America.  


We will now address what we referred to earlier as "one of the most outstanding examples of extreme compromise, stubbornly refusing to repent when wrong and foolish human pride in leadership that we have witnessed."



Spirit Filled Christian America's Obsession with Immoral Entertainment   


If the following does not disturb you, it is quite possible that nothing about sin, compromise and America's fall from grace disturbs you. 


We use the internet regularly to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to teach Bible Doctrines and to encourage fellow Believers.  Recently we came across a FaceBook public conversation between a Word of Faith Bible College Instructor, some of her students, fellow staff members and others. Pastor John Hamel graduated from this particular Bible College. 


Actually initiated by the Bible Instructor and occurring on her FaceBook page, the conversation was openly, giddily and shamelessly singing the praises of the Sunday Night PBS God-mocking, homosexual, lesbian, adultery-promoting “Downton Abbey” Masterpiece Theatre series from England.  


This same highly immoral program is presently banned by secular authorities in Greece because of its overtly homosexual content.


It just so happens that this same Bible College represented by the Bible Instructor has another Bible School in Greece.  It would have been very easy for the Bible students in Greece to see this conversation on FaceBook for they are on FaceBook as well.


The Instructor, staff members and students were well-versed in the continuing immoral saga, the names of the characters, what happened recently and where they felt the plot would take them next.  As a matter of fact, some even revealed that they practice “auto-recording” this series so they wouldn't miss it "should Church happen to run late."


Sadly, they are not nearly as well-versed in the Scriptures as they are with the salacious plot, as we will explain. 


We engaged in the conversation boldly reminding them all that this PBS series is a homosexual and lesbian promoting attack on the same Country they are preaching the Gospel to and preparing Bible students to preach the Gospel to. 


We posted a short graphic, but not overtly so, clip from the series to help snatch them out of the fog of their compromise.


Suddenly, the happy, clappy, Holy Spirit grieving conversation led by the Bible Instructor disappeared from her FaceBook page.


The Bible Instructor later messaged and told us “You aren’t walking in love” for publicly rebuking her and her fellow “Downton Abbey” fans.  She also offered a rebuke for “humiliating” her because, in order to reach all involved in the conversation at one time, the correction was offered in the same public forum they were using to praise the God-mocking, homosexual-glorifying series. 


We reminded her she was cooperating with and leading others into “The Dirty Church.”


We reminded her that her own shameless compromise humiliated her, not us. (Jeremiah 2:19)


We reminded her that she and the Ministers she was “training” were called to a stricter judgment. (James 3:1)


We reminded her that the Apostle Paul deliberately rebuked Peter publicly for his public compromise in order that others would learn from it. (Galatians 2:11-14)


We reminded the Bible Instructor that Paul, in his Pastoral Epistles, instructs all Christian leaders to publicly rebuke other leaders who publicly sin in order to encourage others to not follow their poor example.  Paul demanded this be done “without partiality” she was told. (1 Timothy 5:20-21)


Quite obviously the Bible Instructor was nowhere near as acquainted with these verses as she was with the plot and the characters of the immoral PBS production she had been praising to her Bible School constituents.


Let's review this briefly again for clarity.


This Bible Instructor led a public conversation on a social networking site, praising the anti-Bible, immoral glories of what one of her followers referred to as “Cool” Downton Abbey.


We entered the conversation, as Ministers of the Gospel and also an Alumni of that School, reminding the backslidden “Downton Abbey Bible College Posse" what the Bible says about the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism. 


The response from the Bible Instructor who is training America’s and the world’s future Pentecostal Ministers?  


“You aren’t walking in love!” accompanied by a nice long compendium of out of context Bible verses to “prove” it.


This is how far Christian America, including Pentecostal, Word of Faith and Charismatic Christian America, has fallen.


The Bible Instructor was observed, on a public social networking site, leading her following in plain old-fashioned disobedience to the Bible.  When confronted she immediately began finding fault with God's corrector, firing back in defense of her disobedience with "You're not walking in love" Scriptures taken out of context.


This is definitely not a leadership quality. 


Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin, Founder of this very same Bible School, said, “There is nothing more lacking in the Charismatic Movement today than commitment, consecration and respect for the things of God.”


When it came to teaching and obeying the Scriptures, Dr. Hagin was known for playing hardball, but fairly.  


It seems that some who have come along since his traveling on, claiming him as their spiritual father, have chosen to play Nerf ball in his absence.



Another Glaring Example of a Spiritual Leader's Obsession with Immoral Entertainment 


One of the Word of Faith movement's most popular and in-demand Preachers posted on his Ministry Facebook page high praises for an R-rated western movie that caused an absolute carnal feeding frenzy among his thousands of followers.


His Facebook post was accompanied by a picture of him happily posing at the gravesite of the historic figure the violent movie was glorifying.  


This highly popular Preacher's subscribers were very obviously thrilled to discover he had put his public stamp of approval on a movie they themselves knew glorified immorality, dishonored their God and mocked His Holy written Word.  


It was obvious in reading their comments that the prevailing attitude was, "Hurrah! If it's okay for my spiritual leader that means it's okay for me." 


I checked a Christian-based family movie rating site to see what the hubbub was all about. I was completely disheartened by what I discovered. The movie the Minister was gloriously promoting was rated as "one of the most violent and immoral of all R-rated movies ever made." It glorified murder, bloody violence, drunkenness, opium addiction and blatant sexual immorality. 


When this Minister posted his approval and praise for this movie, it generated multiple thousands of combined Facebook "likes" and "comments."  Most of the comments were Christians not only confessing that they, too, had viewed the movie, but many of them were quoting their favorite lines and recalling their favorite scenes from the highly immoral movie. 


This was one of the poorest demonstrations of leading by example ever, running a close second to the above-mentioned Bible School Instructor and definitely not a demonstration of love and respect for Christ's Body. 


This is a man who is not only considered a spiritual leader by hundreds of thousands of "In Christ" believers but one who conducts annual spiritual leadership conferences.  


This is a man who also once told me that my public Facebook stands against homosexuality in the Church and abortion were "unwise," "not walking in love" and an indication that my life "is not absolutely surrendered to Jesus Christ."


This is a heartbreaking indication of a prideful spiritual leader who has yielded himself to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons as Paul warned would occur in the Last Days.


"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron." (1 Timothy 4:1-2)  


We can know it is as it was in the days of Noah when spiritual leaders such as these call up down and down up, right wrong and wrong right and their fans gleefully follow.


When Jesus appeared to Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin on September 2, 1950, He conveyed the following to him. 


"As it was in the days of Noah, so also shall the coming of the Son of Man be. As I spoke to Noah and said, 'Yet seven days and I will cause it to rain upon the Earth, forty days and forty nights, and every living substance will I destroy from off the face of the Earth,' so today I am speaking and giving America her last warning and call to repentance, and the time that is left is comparable to the last seven days of Noah's time.


"Warn this generation, as did Noah his generation, for judgment is about to fall. And these sayings shall be fulfilled shortly, for I am coming soon. This is the last revival. I am preparing My people for My coming. Judgment is coming, but I will call My people away, even unto Myself, before the worst shall come. But be thou faithful and watch and pray. For the time of the end of all things is at hand." ("I Believe in Visions" pg. 47)


We have shared with you but a few flagrant examples of the type of sin and compromise that runs rampant and is left unchallenged in even Charismatic Christianity today.  We have seen just the tip of the iceberg that is about to take the Christian ship Titanic down, unless repentance is offered to a Holy God right soon.


Much of American Christianity, including the Word of Faith Movement of which the authors have claimed association for decades, has forgotten that the Gospel is a life boat, not a party boat.  


This is exactly why Christian America is presently under the judgment of a Benevolent, Loving Father Who some seem to have forgotten is also our Judge, Lawgiver and Sovereign King.  


"For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us." (Isaiah 33:22)


As for our stepping out in defense of God, the Bible, morality and Country being called, “Not walking in love”?  




Respectfully, we loved every minute of it because we are weary of watching as our backslidden brothers and sisters in the Lord, including many of our leaders, openly cooperate with Satan's blatant ripping at the moral fabric of American families and society. 


Dr. Billy Graham in his July, 2012, Open Letter to American Christians said it best.  


”Self-centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle. My heart aches for America and its deceived people." 


Dr. Graham was not just addressing the lost.  Dr. Graham was addressing the entire backslidden Body of Christ - including the Preachers.





Chapter 2:  Repentance, Not Faith, Will Turn Back America's Present Judgment 


The authors are people of faith. We believe in the message of faith and we teach faith principles. This is clearly revealed in our public Ministry, in our writings and all across our website, particularly at our JHM Online Bible Training Centre. 


We believe it is the will of God to meet the needs of His people and to protect His people through what we refer to as the "Unfailing Laws of Personal Faith." The Bible teaches that Believers in Jesus Christ must use their faith in order to have their needs met as proficiently as God desires.  We would never discourage anyone from properly using their faith for anything at anytime. 


However, for Pastors and Ministers to wrongly teach people they can "use faith" to exclude themselves from or to turn back the present judgment of God in America without repentance is foolishness and presumption.  


Only repentance by sinful individuals or nations can turn back the judgment of God.  


It is not possible to live with sin in our lives or to condone sin in our midst and then use our faith to override the consequences thereof. 


Many today are teaching that God would prefer to forgive than to judge and if we will "use faith" He will bless us in spite of our national sins.  


This is a grotesque distortion of true Bible faith.  The Apostle Paul made it clear that without repentance there can be no faith for anything. (Acts 20:21)  


We have personally sat in congregations as well as read postings by Internet where Pastors and Preachers are wrongly telling their congregations, "Having faith redeems Christians from America's present judgment." 


They make misinformed statements such as, "It doesn't matter who is President. Jesus will still bless us." or "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law of Sin and Death according to Galatians 3:13-14. All the bad things that are going on out there don't involve us. We can use our faith and be blessed no matter what's going on out there."


Apparently they are unaware that America's present judgment is Christian America's present judgment, not just secular America's present judgment. 


Apparently they are unaware or have forgotten that the Bible says, "Judgment begins in the House of God." (1 Peter 4:17) 


America is eighty-five percent Christian by most estimates. 


The judgment that has come to America has not simply come to the remaining fifteen percent who do not profess Christianity. It would be foolish to believe that.  


America's present judgment has come to all of America, particularly Christianity, for the vast majority of Christian America is horribly backslidden and responsible for the fall of America.  This is why God requires His people to do the repenting and not the fifteen percent who are not His people. 


"If My people which are called by My name, shall 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." (2 Chronicles 7:14)


Either the faith Preachers who teach God is not judging His Body are right and God is wrong, or God is right and the faith Preachers who teach God is not judging His Body are wrong. It does not take a genius IQ to realize that because God and His Word are never wrong, that only the faith Preachers who are teaching this error could be the ones who are wrong.


It would be true that "The bad things that are going on do not involve Christians" if so many of those Christians being addressed were not themselves living immorally. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) 


It would be true if so very many Christians were not condoning sexual sin in their Churches and in their midst and were Biblically and obediently confronting it. (1 Corinthians 5:9-13) 


It would be true if so many of the Christians being addressed were not refusing to stay out of strife and were walking in love. (James 3:14-16)  


It would also be true if so many of those Christians being addressed were strongly opposing abortion and homosexuality in society and were taking a strong stand in defense of Israel as the Bible requires. (Luke 1:41-44; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Psalm 122:6-9)


However, the majority of American Christians have been deliberately and miserably falling down on the job in all of these areas.  Were this not true, there would be no need for this present judgment which has indeed come to Christian America.


Millions of Christians are living with people to whom they are not married and most Pastors and their congregations refuse to confront it.  


There is an epidemic of fornication and adultery in most local Churches and most Pastors and their congregations refuse to confront it.  


We ministered in a Church were we were actually invited to lunch with the Pastor, his wife and two people who were committing adultery with one another and the Pastor and his wife knew it.  The Pastor claimed, "It's not my job to correct anybody." That was one lunch invitation we sharply declined.    


Increasingly Christian congregations live with in-house fighting and rampant strife in their midst where the Pastor either cooperates with it directly, uses it to his advantage or turns a blind eye to it.  The Bible says where strife is allowed to exist the devil is free to ride roughshod over individuals and congregations. 


We ministered in a Church where there was more open strife than possibly any other Church we had been to. The Pastor refused to quench it.  There was also more cancer in that Church than in any Church we had ever ministered in. The level of the cancer in that Church was equal to or greater than the level of strife. The Bible warns of strife opening the door to "every evil work."  That would include cancer. (James 3:16) It is the Pastor's responsibility to address strife whenever it exists, putting an immediate end to it. (2 Timothy 4:2, Amplified Bible)


The majority of Christians do absolutely nothing about America's gargantuan problem with abortion.  Sixty-eight percent of the 56 million legal abortions performed since "Roe v Wade" have been performed on Christians.  This reveals that the majority of Christian Churches have members who have had abortions, have helped others to have abortions, condone abortion and even believe in abortion.  This would include Pentecostal congregations.  It is the Pastor's responsibility to address this and to change it. (2 Timothy 4:2, Amplified Bible)


The majority of Christians do absolutely nothing in defense of God's favored nation, Israel.  Christian America's problem with not wholeheartedly defending Israel against her terrorist enemies is unacceptable to Holy God. To think Christian America's weak, off and on, unpredictable, dishonest, underhanded, sloppy handling of democratic Israel would not ire the God of Israel is to not be thinking at all. (Genesis 12:3; Jeremiah 12:14-16) 


It is the Pastor's responsibility to educate the congregation concerning Christian America's Biblical connection to God through Israel. 



The High Cost of Any Christian's Low Esteem for Israel 


Even Prophets face judgment for showing contempt for Israel.


A once widely-recognized Word of Faith Prophet has publicly stated that the Christian's connection to Jesus Christ has nothing whatsoever to do with the Nation of Israel.  Apparently he does not know, or care, that the Bible teaches otherwise when it is his job to both know and care.  


Sadly, in many cases, when God manifests and demonstrates His power through certain individuals they begin to get puffed up with pride. They begin to believe just because they are gifted in one area that they are gifted in all areas.  They begin to believe that just because God showed them a little something from the Bible that they know everything about the Bible. This is what happens when one tries to build their Ministry on their Gifts, anointings and personalities and not strictly on God's Word. 


This is why the Bible demands that we study to show ourselves approved of God and not just shoot our big mouths off because we think we are special. Any Minister who thinks he is "special" has only one special attribute that sets him apart from others - special ignorance which is guaranteed to produce special shame. 


The Apostle Paul told young Pastor Timothy that studying a subject before trying to teach that subject will keep one from great shame. (2 Timothy 2:15) 


The Christian's connection to Jesus Christ is indeed directly through Israel, even if a popular Prophet speaks against God's Word and says otherwise.  


The Bible reveals that Abraham and Israel gave us Jesus. 


It is because Abraham, the Hebrew, agreed to allow the Redeemer to come through his loins that God has covenanted with the entire Hebrew nation in the way that He has.   


Israel gave us the Old Testament.  Israel gave us the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.  Israel gave us the Apostle Paul who, in turn, gave us the New Testament through both his tremendous knowledge of the Old Testament and direct revelation of the New through personal visitations of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 11:1; Philippians 3:5; 2 Corinthians 12:1)  


Without the Nation of Israel we would have no America, no Bible, no salvation, no Covenant, no Father Abraham, no Savior and no power. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:16-17; Romans 1:3; 8:15; 15:8; Ephesians 2:12; Galatians 3:13-14, 29)  


It is quite obvious that Israel does not need America or Christianity to define her heritage, but most definitely America and Christianity need Israel to define theirs. To say that the Christian's connection to Jesus has nothing to do with the nation of Israel is absolutely unfounded, simply not true and Bible illiterate.


This very same Word of Faith Minister has also stated that he does not understand what the big deal is with Abraham, Israel and Christianity because, in his words, "The Bible doesn't even say that Abraham was a Jew." 


We heard him speak those words and were rocked with astonishment for the Bible does indeed state that Abraham was a Jew.  The term "Jew" is an abbreviated form of the word "Judah."  In the Old Testament the Hebrew nation is often simply referred to as "Judah."  Therefore, Hebrews are "Judahs" or "Jews."  


Now let's read what the Bible says about the uninformed Minister's statement, "The Bible doesn't even say that Abraham was a Jew."


"And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew ..." (Genesis 14:12-13)   


Why a Pentecostal Minister of the Gospel, a Prophet no less, would insist that the Christian's connection to Jesus Christ has nothing to do with Israel and that Abraham was not even a Jew is far beyond us.  However, one thing is for certain.  This type of prevailing attitude against the Hebrew nation, publicly stated, certainly garners the attention of the God of Israel in an unwanted and unneeded way in that Prophet's life.


It is no small wonder to look at this Prophet today and see that his thinking became so clouded and degenerate as a result of his prideful, un-Biblical, disrespectful and even hateful attitude towards Israel, that he ended up actually performing an incestuous wedding ceremony which resulted in tremendous, permanent harm to his reputation and great loss to his Ministry. 


The authors also personally heard this Prophet boast in a Ministers' Conference of being able to sexually satisfy his wife who was twenty years his junior. Apparently, through his pride-clouded thinking, he really believed everyone in that Ministers' Conference was wondering if he was able to do so or not at his age. He foolishly marked and shamed himself terribly by ever doing such a thing in the presence of both male and female Ministers of the Gospel.


Ministers, Prophets in particular, must be very careful to not become so overconfident in themselves that they become lax in or out of the pulpit. Ten thousand "Atta boy!"(s) can be so quickly undone by one "Oh, no!"


This Prophet's decline began with his pride and his publicly expressed low esteem for God's favored Nation of Israel.


"The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools." (Proverbs 3:35) 


Christians and Christian Ministers, including Prophets, who pridefully lift their hands or their voices against Israel incur strict judgment. (Genesis 12:3; Jeremiah 12:14-17; Zechariah 12:3; James 3:1)


King Nebuchadnezzar learned the all-important lesson of putting one's own pride down or the Laws of Sowing and Reaping will do it for you.  He also learned the importance of resisting the temptation to abuse Israel just because one does not necessarily like Israel. 


Nebuchadnezzar lost his mind temporarily as well, all as a result of thinking he knew better than God and the Scriptures. (Daniel 4:1-37)


This Word of Faith Prophet's pride and ungodly attitude toward the nation of Israel and the Jewish people is prevalent all across the Body of Christ and has finally resulted in judgment, not only for him but for all who suffer with the same affliction of pride and low esteem for Israel. 


Sure, many Christians take a stand for Israel, but in comparison to those who do not, it is a comparatively small number.


It is a dangerous thing for Christians to ignore Israel's plight or to speak and act against Israel at anytime, in any way, for any reason. 


To do so will readily cause things to stop happening for the guilty party and to start happening to them.



Presumption's Danger Zone 


It is equally as dangerous for a Pastor to stand before his congregation and tell them, "It doesn't matter who's President. Presidents come and Presidents go. Jesus will continue to bless us."


It is unrealistic, irresponsible, wholly and completely un-Biblical for a Minister of the Gospel to tell the Body of Christ they can "use faith" to overcome this present judgment for Christian America's gross national sins without ever even mentioning the fact that Jesus said, "Except ye repent ye shall likewise perish." (Luke 13:1-5)  


That is not faith. 


That is foolishness. 


That is human presumption and pride.


It simply is not true that the judgment that has come to the United States of America can be overridden "by faith" particularly when those who attempt to do so are living in any or all of the above-mentioned sinful ways and perpetuating the problem.


If "living by faith can overcome what's going on out there in the world" is true, please answer the following questions.  


Will Christians be able to "use faith to overcome" when the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and freedom of speech is overturned and outlawed?  If Christian America refuses to repent, the Obama Administration's plan to overturn the 1st Amendment will be accomplished.  Once it is, if Preachers attempt to stand up and preach the Gospel, they will be arrested and imprisoned in spite of any presumptuous attempts to "use faith" to make it all go away. 


Will Christian gun-owners be able to "use faith" and keep their weapons when the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is overturned and gun ownership is outlawed?  If Christian America refuses to repent, the Obama Administration's plan to overturn the 2nd Amendment will be accomplished as well. Will Preachers be preaching "What's going on out there doesn't include us. We can keep our guns by faith" at that time?  If it ever came to the overturning of the 2nd Amendment, only a fool would tell a congregation something like that.  He and they would be arrested, imprisoned and who knows what else.


If indeed "Christians are redeemed by faith from what's going on out there" does this mean that the new tax laws which have been recently heavily imposed upon the American people by this Administration of judgment do not include them?  Does it mean we do not have to pay the higher taxes because we are "redeemed from what's going on out there"?  


How about being forced to purchase health insurance, as all Americans must do or be severely penalized?  Are Christians "redeemed by faith" from this as well? 


Should violent Sharia Law overtake America, which is the ultimate goal of the devout Muslim, Barack Hussein Obama, will Christians be able to "use faith" to overcome it and not submit to it because "we are redeemed and it doesn't include us"?  They would be severely disciplined and even executed for attempting to do so. 


It is a poorly thought through and unenlightened conviction when a "Faith Preacher" stands up and tells American Christians that they are "redeemed by faith from what is presently going on in the United States of America."  


This is particularly true when the people who are being addressed are some of the very ones who have opened the door to judgment coming to Christian America. They have done this through their own sexual immorality as well as turning a blind eye to homosexuality coming into the Church, 56 million convenience abortions performed in the past 40 years and America's constant, unyielding taunting Israel and tampering with her security. 


"People of faith," particularly "Word of Faith" and Pentecostal people, which the authors are, need to wake up above all others because they have been believing the lie that God would choose to forgive America and to forego judging America in spite of America's sins.  Many Pentecostals are believing the lie that sin has not run amuck within their own company of Believers as it has in other denominations, when surely it has.


Pentecostal Preachers have been the slowest to catch on to God's present judgment of America while Baptist Ministers such as Rev. Dr. Billy Graham are quick to preach "repentance" and "God's judgment has come to America."  


Word of Faith and Pentecostal Christians and Ministers are as guilty as all other denominations when it comes to "The Dirty Church."  


Word of Faith and Pentecostal Believers are as guilty of immorality and strife as any of America's biggest denominations.  It is pure fantasy to believe that one can turn a blind eye to sin in their midst, or even in their own personal lives, and then "use faith" to overcome Christian America's present judgment.  


This is one of the most deadly ways that "living by faith" is being taken much too far by Word of Faith and Pentecostal Christianity. This is as un-Biblical and extreme as the Joseph Prince Hyper-Grace lie "Christians need never ask forgiveness for sin again for it is automatically forgiven in Jesus." 


This horrific lie, by the way, has been strongly promoted by Christian television in spite of the fact that it is entirely un-Biblical.  But because it rakes in the dough when people hear they can have all the benefits without any of the responsibilities, it is given mega, prime-time airing.


No Christian or Minister who lives in secret sin or who refuses to deal with it in their midst is "redeemed by faith" from the judgment that is presently occurring in Christian America. 


As a matter of fact, decades of living with secret sin and open disobedience, compounded by Pastors turning a blind eye to it, is what has finally brought this present judgment to Christian America.  


Rev. Billy Graham was talking to all of Christian America, including far too many Word of Faith and Pentecostal Christians and Ministers, when he recently said, "Self-centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle.  My heart aches for America and its deceived people."


Sadly, many Preachers do not hear the voice of the Holy Spirit in what Rev. Graham has stated for the following reason. 


For many decades now many Pastors and Preachers have become so adept at quenching the voice of the Holy Spirit when He tells them to correct sin within their congregations that they have hardened their hearts to His voice and can no longer hear Him. There is a well-developed, thick callous built up around their hearts that prevents them from hearing. They have lost sensitivity of heart through their own fear, compromise and disobedience.


"Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts." (Hebrews 4:7)



Preaching Repentance Results in the Miraculous 


Word of Faith and Pentecostal Pastors in particular will be stunned to see the number of people who would either leave their Churches or come to the altar, even to the Pastor's office, if calls for repentance over sexual sin were given on a regular basis. They would also be amazed to see the return of the anointing.  


If timid Pastors would ask God for boldness and begin preaching the message of repentance for sin week in and week out, they would be literally stunned not only by the number of people who would leave or repent, but by who those individuals actually are.  They would find even their own family members as well as their staff members either running for cover or repenting and running to the altar for forgiveness. Either one will restore the anointing.


They would also be literally amazed by the way the Gifts of the Spirit and miracles would come into operation as the people began to repent.  


Pastor, do you wonder why revival and the supernatural is bypassing you?  In most cases it is because you are blocking the spout where the miracles come out because you are too timid to start preaching the word of repentance and not stop until you see the miraculous results.  


You have been timid and remiss in your unwillingness to stand up and tell your people, "I am going to ask the Lord to show me every person in this congregation who is committing fornication, adultery, pedophilia, incest or any similar sexual sins.  When He does, which He will, I am going to confront you unless you leave or repent immediately. I would prefer that you repent and stay, but I will no longer allow you to continue to stop the miraculous from occurring in the lives of those who are living right just because you think you are entitled to sit here with those demons on you and grieve the Holy Spirit."  


You will be amazed at what God will do.  It is not possible for you to stand up and make a bold statement like that and for God to not take you on in your faith.  He is the One Who told you to preach repentance.  So why don't you just do a little thing and obey Him.  He will do a big thing and confirm it for you. 


Just do it, Pastor, then boldly stick by your word. The ones who have been correctly referring to you as timid will see the change and reverence God.


It works every time.


Someone said, "Pastor Hamel, what if I do that and it doesn't work?"  I said, "What if you do it and it does? Because it will."


Someone else said, "What if I do it and most of my people leave?"  To which we say, "Good, they needed to go. Now God can work the miraculous amongst those who want to live right. Once miracles start occurring, word will get out and people will come running. Miracles are the dinner bell to salvation.  You'll end up with a hundred times more people in this coming Revival than you had when you were allowing the stench of sin to fester and fill the air."


When I (Pastor John) was a child my grandfather owned a trucking company in Boston, Massachusetts. My father and uncles would take semi-trucks to the fishing boats docked alongside Commonwealth Pier. Sometimes I would go along with them. They would load the trucks with iced fish from the boats and then haul it into New York City.  Sometimes I would walk around the pier to look at the fishing boats. Occasionally I would see one that was beginning to sink. As the bilge would flood with seawater the rats would come up from down below and scurry up the dock lines, even over one another, to keep from drowning. 


When a Pastor begins to preach the strong word of repentance, it may initially appear that it is the wrong thing to do. It may appear that your boat is sinking. Some people who do not want to change are going to trip over themselves to get to the exits. That is normal and to be expected. It is just the rats who do not want to be drowned by change, running up the dock lines and disappearing in order to save themselves. 


Once all the rats are gone, God will drop in the bilge pump and you will be floating safely again  in a short matter of time. He will also fill you up with a fresh load of fish and whatever new deck hands may be necessary. True fishermen are glad to see the rats go because they are nasty, vicious and infectious.


We recently held a series of revival meetings for the Pastor of a fairly large, very successful Church in the South. Prior to going to the services, I (Pastor John) was caught up in a trance while praying at 3:00 in the morning.  In the trance I saw and heard myself preaching from Deuteronomy 6:2 and then giving an altar call for those who wanted to repent for sexual immorality, with many responding. 


When we arrived at the Church, I imitated exactly what I saw in the trance, even preaching the same message I both saw and heard myself preaching in the trance based on Deuteronomy 6:2. 


After the message, which clearly revealed that fornication and adultery do not give reverence to God, but rather it grieves Him, the call was given for repentance.  Those who were grieving God because of their immoral lifestyles began to come forth seeking forgiveness for fornication, adultery and prostitution even as I had seen in the trance. (Acts 10:9-16; 22:17-21; Revelation 1:9-11)


The Pastor was shocked at both the number of people and the type of people who came forward to repent. His head was spinning for weeks afterward as a result of seeing people whom he never suspected of sexual sin coming forth to repent. 


He later told us that for at least a week after we left his own family, congregation and staff members were still coming to his office, in some cases getting on their knees, to repent to him for having been living in sexual sin behind his back.  He said to us, "You did me a favor preaching like that.  I didn't know this was occurring.  Even if I did, I could never have stood up to do what you did."


As a result of the people's repentance during these services, the Revelation and Power Gifts in particular went into operation. The Pastor's young son was glued to the floor by the Holy Spirit and called to the Ministry.  He said he tried to get up repeatedly but could not do so until he told the Holy Spirit that he would obey Him.  


Tumors, goiters and sicknesses were instantly healed.  One lady who had four goiters hanging on her neck for forty years was instantly healed.  Her husband was there to witness and confirm the miracle. Deafness was healed.  People's finances were supernaturally restored.  Prostitutes were delivered.  Demons were cast out and over 75 people were delivered from the spirit of suicide which had entered them through sin.


Pastors and Preachers all across this land best get themselves to their knees before Holy God immediately.  They must ask Him for the boldness to stand up and make continual calls for repentance, particularly for sexual immorality and strife in their Churches. (2 Corinthians 7:4; Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 4:16; 10:19; 1 John 4:17) 


The lack of Pastors doing so has driven the Gifts of the Spirit into dormancy and has brought this present judgment to America. 


No doubt, some Pastors are thinking, "I wouldn't know what to preach to get them to repent."  


Just open your Bible to Deuteronomy 6:2 like I saw myself do in the trance and tell them the word "fear" in that verse means "reverence" like I did.  


Tell them fornication, adultery and homosexuality is not showing reverence for God, like I did.  


Tell them that verse also says they could die prematurely if they do not repent, like I did.  


Tell them from 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and 18 that homosexuals, fornicators and adulterers have no inheritance, like I did.  


Then let God take it from there as I did.  


The Bible says the righteous are as bold as a lion, so stand up like the bold, Born Again, anointed man or woman of God you are and drive those Anointing-killing, Gift-quenching, Nation-trashing spirits of immorality out of the congregation God has placed under your hand. (Proverbs 28:1)


You can take this very same approach concerning abortion and Israel. Present your congregation with Scripture that killing babies in the womb and tampering with Israel is not showing reverence for God. Tell them they could be judged for doing so then ask if anyone wants to repent and let God take it from there. 


The preaching of "faith" is never going to do the job that preaching "repentance" alone is intended to do.  


Wake up, Faith Preachers!  Wake up!  You think you are in faith when you are in presumption.  


Part of God's judgment on Christian America will be the premature death of Ministers who refuse to continually preach the message of repentance. They will be replaced by bold, even younger, less-experienced Ministers, who will preach repentance because they are in tune with what God is saying to horribly backslidden Christian America.  Preachers so young that they have not yet had time to harden their hearts to His voice like many older, prideful, disobedient Preachers have.


To refuse to listen to this admonition as a Preacher of Righteousness and to continue to preach "we can overcome what's going on out there with faith" and to refuse to buckle down and start preaching the message of "repentance" would be a slap in the face of Holy God.  You will see this when you read Chapter Four: Eight Reasons a Loving God Allows Judgment. It would also be an absolute affront to the true message of faith in Him. 


By unction of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul has commanded Preachers of Righteousness to preach the message of repentance first and the message of faith second. 


"Testifying both to the Jews and also to the Greeks, repentance towards God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." (Acts 20:21)  


It is just common sense to realize that when the preaching of faith is not working and the Gifts of the Spirit are not in operation as God intends for them to be in New Testament Church services, it is simply time to stop preaching "faith" and go back and start preaching "repentance" to people who are disobeying the Bible.


To preach "faith" to Christians who are doing little or nothing at all about their own unconfessed sins, 56 million convenience abortions, normalizing homosexuality and tampering with Israel's security when the Scripture forbids doing so is absolute presumption on the Minister's part. To preach "faith" before preaching "repentance" is to put the proverbial cart before the horse.  End result? No results!


How unfortunate that so many Ministers and Christians refuse to believe America is presently being judged by its Lawgiver and Judge.  They say, “God will never judge America because America has a Covenant with God, not only through the Bible but through the Mayflower Compact.”  


However, those who believe that way are apparently blinded to the fact that America's present dilemma is not a matter of God having broken Covenant with America.  This present dilemma is a matter of America having broken both Covenant and fellowship with God by not keeping her end of the Bible Covenant or the Mayflower Compact. (Deuteronomy 8:17-20)


Because America has done evil in God's sight, disobeying His voice and breaking her agreement with Him, all the good God intends for America and every benefit is being withdrawn. (Jeremiah 18:9-10)


The bottom line is this.  


When true Preachers of the Gospel begin to preach, en masse, the message of repentance for sin, people will begin to repent, en masse, for their sin.  


When people repent for their sin, judgment will be turned back, the miraculous will begin to occur again within the Churches and America will go immediately into the recovery process in every realm of its existence.


"Use your faith to override what's going on out there" is the wrong message for Pastors and national TV Ministers to be preaching right now, especially to Christians who are living in sin and causing America's present crisis. 


Of course, not all are living in sin but so many are that the cup has overflowed and God is allowing judgment. 


Doesn't it just make sense, Preacher, to preach a message along the lines of what you see God is allowing in our nation?


Doesn't it just make sense, Preacher, to stop preaching about money just to get more money and start preaching repentance in order to turn our country back to the place of true prosperity?


Repentance by faith and a return to the reverence of God is God's present message to backslidden Christian America.


This is what the Holy Spirit has instructed 94-year-old Dr. Billy Graham to tell our nation. 


You may not be listening right now, but you will be listening later. God will have His way.


"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord." (Acts 3:19)




Chapter 3:  Prophets, Israel, America and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping


The Prophet Jeremiah and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping


The Prophet Jeremiah brought forth an astonishing revelation by the Spirit of God concerning the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.  Here is what he said, from the Amplified Bible.


“Your own wickedness shall chasten and correct you, and your backslidings and desertion of faith shall reprove you. Know therefore and recognize that this is an evil and bitter thing: [first,] you have forsaken the Lord your God; [second,] you are indifferent to Me and the fear of Me is not in you, says the Lord of Hosts." (Jeremiah 2:19)


Here the Prophet Jeremiah makes clear reference to the fact that the Laws of Sowing and Reaping will actually correct and reprove men and nations as a direct result of their own wickedness and backslidings. 


We refer to this as "The Steel Punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping." 


The more wicked and backslidden individuals and nations become, the more harshly the Laws of Sowing and Reaping will begin to work against them and to stop working for them. 


We say it this way, “When individuals or nations disobey God things stop happening for them and begin to happen to them.  It is man, not God, who causes the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to work against himself.  Only man can reverse that.”  


King David and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping


Let’s look at something King David said concerning the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


“Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle… Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.” (Psalm 32:9-10)


What could be clearer?  King David, speaking by the Spirit of God in reference to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, clearly stated that the stubbornly disobedient and rebellious shall be consumed with sorrows while the obedient, pliable and correctable shall be literally compassed about with God’s mercy.


The choice is clear.  By their behaviors men and nations choose either the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping or the soft pillow of mercy. 


King David also stated that his life was surrounded with God’s loving-kindness because he walked in truth. (Psalm 26:3)  Walking in truth does not mean that one does not make mistakes for David made many.  David’s two greatest mistakes were when he numbered his army after God told him not to do so and when he killed Uriah in order to take his wife. (2 Samuel 24:1-4; 2 Samuel 11:1-27; 12:1-31)  


King David was one of the greatest mistake-makers in human history.  But he knew how to repent when he was wrong.  David knew how the Laws of Sowing and Reaping worked for or against individuals and nations.  When he was wrong he said so.  He asked the Lord to forgive him. He received his forgiveness and moved on in the blessings of the Lord. 


King David made some of the most ridiculous mistakes in the history of humanity, but he had enough sense to bring them before the Lord to receive forgiveness.  


Christian America could learn much from King David.  


King Solomon and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping


King David’s son, King Solomon, the wisest man to ever live, next to the Lord Jesus Christ, also referred to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.  Interestingly, he referred to them as “the reproof of life.” 


“The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.  He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.” (Proverbs 15:31-32)


King Solomon realized that life has a way of bringing reproof and correction to the disobedient and the wicked, whether they be individuals or nations.  Solomon well knew what Jeremiah was referring to when he said, “Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee.”  


King Solomon understood that God had slung the Laws of Sowing and Reaping into operation, allowing men and nations to decide whether those Laws would work for or against them.  This was to encourage man, in his free will, to always choose behaviors which would lead to blessings and to reject behaviors which would lead to curses.


Christian America could learn much from King Solomon.  


National Israel and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping


Almighty God put it straight to the nation of Israel, making clear reference to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping when He said the following.


“I call Heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: that thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice;” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)


God commands all men and all nations to choose life, not just Israel.  When men and nations choose life by choosing His grace and means of eternal life through Jesus and obedience to His Word, they can cancel the Laws of Sin and Death and operate in what the Apostle Paul called the Law of the Spirit of Life. (Romans 8:2) 


However, individuals and nations must make this choice for themselves because God will not force anyone to surrender to Him or to remain obedient to Him.  Sadly, Christian America has chosen the path of disobedience which leads to heartache, unnecessary suffering, curses and ultimate demise without repentance.


Sadly, Christian America has chosen the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


But the good news is if America, which is 85% Christian by most estimates, will repent for her gross national sins of abortion, immorality, homosexuality, rejection of capital punishment when the verdict is beyond reasonable doubt and tampering with Israel’s security, God will see to it that healing, power, protection and prosperity will visit our land once again.  He set up the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to do just that.


Christian America could learn a lot from God's dealings with Israel.  


God's Promise to Solomon on Israel’s Behalf


“If My people, which are called by My name, shall 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.” (2 Chronicles 7:14) 


The Lord appeared to King Solomon in the night and spoke to him concerning the potential for Israel to fall into national sin.  He promised Solomon that if Israel ever did fall into sin as a nation, only to repent, He would immediately see to it that they were restored to a position of power, protection and provision.


Child of God, this principle referred to by God to Solomon is what the Bible calls the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.  It is simple enough for a child to understand. Do right and be blessed. Do wrong and be cursed.  Repent and be restored.  End of story. 


In chapter three we will look at the eight primary reasons for God allowing judgment to come upon individuals or nations when they allow it to come upon themselves.  We must understand when God allows judgment to come upon men or nations, there is always a reason which is known to the individual or the nation. God does not hold us accountable for what we do not know. God is a good God and He never leaves anyone in the dark as to why they are being chastised or judged. 


We always tell people when they are experiencing judgment, “Don’t look for the needle in the haystack as to why this is happening to you.  Look for the elephant in the bread box.  Look for the obvious.  You are either under attack of Satan for your commitment to the Lord, or you are being judged for your lack of commitment to the things of God.  You do know which one it is.” (1 Peter 2:19-20)


God will not allow individuals or nations to be judged through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping without them understanding exactly why it is they are being judged. He will not allow people to go through judgment and not understand what is happening to them.  


But do not be deceived, God is not mocked.  In His love for humanity He will surely allow men and nations to go through judgment in order to hopefully bring them back on track for His blessing.  


As stated previously, God is the Benefactor and Father of all Christians, but He is also their Lawgiver and Judge.


“Behold therefore the goodness and the severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: other-wise thou also shall be cut off.” (Romans 11:22)  


Christian America's Gargantuan, Over-the-Top Problem with Abortion


We are writing this from the perspective of Christian Americans concerning our own nation and its gross national crimes against a Holy God. However, you may be reading this from any of the over 140 nations who have visited  Please understand that any of the principles shared here also apply to you as an individual and to your own nation as well.  We will continue to address what we believe to be the reasons why our country, the United States of America, is presently and severely being judged by the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.  But if the shoe fits for you and your country, Reader, by all means wear it. 


The Laws of Sowing and Reaping apply to all individuals and all nations of the world.


Soon after her establishment in the early 1600’s by Europeans, America began to have a problem with aborting unwanted children sent into the Earth by the Spirit of God. In Early and Colonial America when a woman realized she was pregnant and did not want the hardship, inconvenience or responsibility of carrying, birthing and raising a child, she would drink what was then called “the bitters.”  “The bitters” was a combination of precisely mixed, highly toxic herbs that would simply make the mother very ill but would cause the child to be aborted. 


Since that time it is impossible to know exactly how many children have been murdered by abortion in this nation.  However, Almighty God knows.  He keeps perfect records.  No city or town hall in existence keeps better birth and death records than the Omniscient God.  He is well aware of every child He sent to be birthed in the United States of America whom America sent back to Him with their “It’s my body. It’s my right to reject this life within me” attitude.


Between the time of the taking of “the bitters” in Early America and the landmark 1973 pro-abortion decision by the U.S. Supreme Court referred to as “Roe v. Wade” there is simply no telling how many abortions have been performed in this country.  No doubt, it is well into the tens, if not hundreds, of millions over that 350-year period of American history. 


Since the 1973 “Roe v. Wade” decision there have been over 56,000,000 recorded “legal” abortions performed.  We believe it would be safe to double that number when adding to it the number of “illegal” backroom, self-inflicted and “Morning After Pill” abortions which are still continually performed.  This adds well over 100 million convenience abortions to the untold millions performed for centuries before the Supreme Court’s unwise decision.


The ungodly 1973 Supreme Court decision, based on the due process clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, “entitles” individual women to free-will abortions according to the woman’s “right to privacy.”  Some have rightly referred to this as “playing God.”   


The Supreme Court’s 7-to-2 ruling is much more complex than what we just described.  One may argue to what extent abortion should be legal, who should decide the legality of abortion, what methods the Supreme Court should use in Constitutional adjudication and what the role should be of religious and moral views in the political arena. 


But the simple bottom line is this.  Since 1973 ninety-eight percent of all abortions performed on American women are performed for convenience only, not because of a threat to life.  They occur simply because the little family member sent into the Earth by a Holy God is unwanted and therefore swiftly and “legally” executed. 


Shockingly, sixty-eight percent of those abortions are performed on Christian women who profess faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and a belief in the Bible. 


According to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, this is not only bad for the individuals who conveniently "discard" the children to whom God gave life, but it is also bad for those who support or facilitate them in this type of legalized murder.  It is also very destructive to the nation that idly sits back condoning it, believing the lie that if God has not judged it by now He is never going to do so.


Anyone who thinks America being presently stripped of wealth and sovereignty by an Islamic President, who lies and calls himself a Christian, is unrelated to hundreds of millions of abortions is simply living in the Land of Make Believe.  


That individual is very apparently not studying the Scriptures, particularly where God addressed Moses concerning the sin of baby-killing. A sin called "Molochism." 


A sin which God says profanes His Holy Name.  


A sin God promised would cause Him to "set My face against that man." 



Abortion Is America's Modern-Day "Molochism"

In the Old Testament the Canaanites and the Amorites sacrificed their children by fire to an idol named Moloch (Molech), also known as Tophet. The name means "King." (2 Chronicles 28:3, 33; Jeremiah 7:31; 19:2-6) 

Many apostate Israelites became involved in Molochism and Holy God sternly addressed Moses concerning it.

"And the Lord spake unto Moses saying, Again thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. And I will set My face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile My sanctuary and to profane My Holy Name." (Leviticus 20:1-3)

What could be clearer? God told Moses that anyone in Israel who sacrificed a child to Moloch would be cut off from Holy God for defiling His sanctuary and profaning His Holy Name. 

God actually said, "I will set My face against that man."  

Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki, a 12th Century French Jewish Rabbi, is generally known by the acronym "Rashi."  "Ra" is from Rabbi.  "Sh" is from Shlomo.  "I" is from Yitzhaki.  To this day Rashi is still acclaimed and highly esteemed by both learned scholars and Rabbis, as well as beginning students. His works remain the very centerpiece of all contemporary Jewish study. He is considered to be the expert on the Talmud and the Tanakh - the Hebrew Bible. 

One of Rashi's comments on Molochism is as follows.

"Moloch was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretch out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved."

Other Hebrew scholars teach that the brass idol, Moloch, was heated until he was fiery red as an incinerator at which time the infant children would be thrown into him. At that point the idol priests would begin furiously beating their drums loudly to drown out the screams of the innocent dying victims.

Christian America is guilty of 21st Century Molochism. She throws her innocent unborn children into the flaming red incinerator of an idol called "Convenience." The liberal politicians of her land loudly and furiously beat the drum of the 14th Amendment's "Right to Privacy" clause to quiet the screaming voice of America's conscience. 

All the while Christian America wonders why God no longer imparts His Blessing to her.

God not only told Moses that He would set His face against the individuals and the nation who sacrificed their children.  He also told them He would set His face against those who turned a blind eye to the evil practice.  Contrary to what some believe, there is absolutely no neutral ground in this matter.  

"And if the people of the land do any ways, hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not; then I will set My face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off..." (Leviticus 20:5)

Here, God made it clear to Moses that individuals who looked the other way concerning the murder of innocent children, even though they did not do the killing, would be just as guilty as those who did the killing. 

He promised to set His face against them, against their families and to cut them off from His Covenant of Provision and Protection. 

Modern-day Molochism in America is one of the biggest reasons God has turned His face from us and why we have found ourselves cut off from the provision and protection we had grown so accustomed to. 

Those who legislate abortion, perform abortions, provide abortions, have abortions, condone abortions, turn a blind eye to abortions or punish those who withstand the sin of abortion are all equally guilty in God's eyes. 

In the Dispensation of Grace in which we live, the death by stoning of proponents of Molochism is no longer practiced.  However, until Christian America gets up off her murderous backside, demanding the overthrow of the King called "legalized abortion," she will remain in her downward spiral. She will continue to experience, individually and nationally, the continual, progressive loss of God's provision and protection.  

Even as He promised Moses, Holy God has turned His face away from Christian America and has all but cut her off because of her gargantuan unrepented of problem with modern-day Molochism. 


Some of Christian America's Additional Crimes Against Holy God


Christian America is presently experiencing an epidemic of sexual sin previously unknown in her Churches.  


One of the largest and fastest growing segments of American society is unwed mothers, including Christian mothers. 


Fornication, adultery and homosexuality are rampant amongst those who claim Christ as their Savior. 


The number of Christians who attend Church and live together outside the Holy Covenant of Marriage is appalling. (Hebrews 13:4) When Ministers confront it, they are almost guaranteed aggressive resistance by those who demand relationship with Christ on their own terms. As Ministers of the Gospel we have had to stand our ground here more times than we care to remember. 


The divorce rate amongst Christians is as high as the divorce rate in the world.  At least fifty percent of all Christian marriages end in divorce. But what can be expected from married Christians who are not taught by their Pastors to show commitment and respect to their Covenant with God?  How can they be expected to show commitment and respect to their Covenant with one another? 


Many Christian parents refuse to discipline their children according to the written Word of God. (Proverbs 13:24; 19:18; 22:15; 23:13; 29:15,17) Rather, far too many choose to sedate their children with medication like worldly parents do.  


In the vast majority of cases where Christian parents have come to us concerning out-of-control children, they have no idea in the world what the Bible says about their need to discipline their children. Many times when pointing out what the Bible says, we have been told, "I am simply not going to do that." When told, "God says you must," they immediately respond, "I don't care. I won't do that." That is rebellion and lawlessness. 


Like their counterparts in the world, far too many Christian parents are all hung up on, "We need to leave a better planet for our children" while ignoring the Bible admonition to leave better children for the planet. 


In far too many cases timid Pastors, afraid of losing financial and material support, turn a blind eye both to the familial rebellion and to the sexual sin festering in their congregations.  One Pastor for whom we preached actually told us, “It’s not my business to correct anybody for anything.”  Obviously he has never read or simply chooses to ignore the Apostle Paul’s Pastoral Epistles, particularly his admonition to Pastors concerning Church oversight.


“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as Preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.” (2 Timothy 4:2, Amplified Bible)


Many Christian organizations and denominations not only openly embrace homosexuality in the spirit of “Christian love” but are now ordaining homosexuals and lesbians to “Christian” ministry. Many Christian Pastors actually officiate over homosexual marriage ceremonies.  


One extremely popular Christian Pastor and author recently said on Larry King Live that he and his wife would have no problem whatsoever attending a friend's homosexual marriage ceremony if invited. This is an affront to Holy God, not only to His forbidding homosexuality but also to His forbidding the condoning of homosexuality. (Romans 8:1-32; 1 Corinthians 5:1 thru 2 Corinthians 6:10)


As stated previously, for the most part Christian America rejects capital punishment when someone is guilty of taking the life of another and there is no reasonable doubt of them having done so. (Genesis 9:6) They reject capital punishment as God’s way of subduing murderous criminals and encouraging others to not commit murder.


Christians picket God-ordained, Biblical and Constitutionally-legal executions, holding up signs based on Exodus 20, verse 13, “Thou shalt not kill” not even realizing that verse of Scripture actually says, “Thou shalt not take a life in an unjustifiable manner.” The number of Christians who know little or nothing about their Bibles is shocking. This is why God said, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)


If God says that executing a murderer is justifiable, then it is justifiable. He is God.  He alone gets to make the rules.   


This is what Solomon was referring to when speaking by inspiration of the Holy Spirit he said, “There is a time to kill.” (Ecclesiastes 3:3) King Solomon was not only referring to execution of murderous individuals, he was also referring to God-ordained defensive warfare when he said that.


Christian America defiantly tampers with Israel’s security when God promised destruction to any who were foolish enough to do so. 


Recently Barack Obama, America’s most anti-Christian, anti-Israel President ever, promised Muslim Brotherhood strongman, Egyptian Dictator Mohammed Morsi the delivery of twenty of America’s most high-tech fighter aircraft, as well as 200 of our most advanced tanks. The Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi are amongst Israel’s greatest enemies and they are committed to wiping Israel off the face of the Earth. 


A staunch Obama supporter recently told me, “Pastor, you’re as crazy as an (outhouse) rat for even thinking Egypt would use those jets and tanks against Israel.” 


Someone is crazy.  But it isn’t me.  America will pay when that high-tech weaponry is used against Israel if the God of Israel even allows it to be delivered.


God told Abraham, concerning Abraham’s offspring, Israel, “I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee.” (Genesis 12:3)


King David knew the importance of the nations of the world blessing and not cursing Israel.  He said, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Israel): they shall prosper that love thee.” (Psalm 122:6)


The reverse application of this Scripture should be apparent to even the most hardened of hearts.  Any nation that lifts its hand against Israel shall cease to prosper.  As a matter of fact, every civilization or world power that has ever lifted their hand against God’s Israel is no longer a civilization or world power from as far back as Pharaoh’s Egypt to present day England and every world power in-between. 


America will be no exception to this time-tested rule of the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.


The Lord said through the Prophet Jeremiah, “Thus saith the Lord against all mine evil neighbors, that touch the inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit … I will pluck them out of their land … if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation…” (Jeremiah 12:14-17)


The Lord also said through the Prophet Zechariah, “All that burden themselves with it (Jerusalem / Israel) shall be cut in pieces …” (Zechariah 12:3)


Teddy Kollek was a five-term Mayor of Jerusalem from 1965-1993. During his tenure he turned Jerusalem into a modern city and is sometimes called "the greatest builder of Jerusalem since Herod."  He once accurately stated, "Jerusalem is a golden bowl filled with vipers. He who puts his hand in it shall die."


Once again, America will be no exception to God's rule of the house concerning Israel and Jerusalem.  That rule is "Hands off Israel and Jerusalem, or judgment is on!"


But the good news is if Christian America will repent for her gross national sins of abortion, fornication, adultery and homosexuality within the Church, rejection of capital punishment when the verdict is beyond reasonable doubt and defiantly tampering with Israel’s security, God will see to it that healing, power, protection and prosperity will visit our land once again. 


He set up the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to do just that.  


America's destiny is not up to God. Christian America's destiny is up to Christian America.


The totality of America’s gross national sins is too great to mention.  But we have listed the primary ones which have caused the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to begin the process of stripping away America’s power, provision and protection. 


The gross national sins listed above are a good place to start the repentance process but a bad place to stop. 


Christian America must wholeheartedly repent before Holy God in order to avoid further, more severe national judgment through the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 




Chapter 4:  Eight Reasons a Loving God Allows Judgment  


We must always remember that God is a good God, a loving God and He only allows drastic measures as a last resort.  The Laws of Sowing and Reaping are set up to accommodate this. 


When all other methods of getting men to obey God have been exhausted, the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping will bring about such severe consequences that only those not in their right minds, such as King Nebuchadnezzar, will refuse to repent. (Daniel 4:1-37)  


As was the case with Pharaoh, Egypt and Moses, God will attempt to reason with sinful humanity for a long period of time before allowing judgment to proceed. But He did say, "My Spirit shall not always strive with man." (Genesis 6:3; 7:1 thru 14:24)  By this He meant that He does indeed have boundaries and it is unwise for man to attempt to find them.


Sadly, because of God’s long-suffering and patience, many individuals and nations misinterpret much time given to repent as an unwillingness on God’s part to allow them to be judged by the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.


This is the position in which Christian America finds herself today.  Individually and nationally Christian America refuses to listen to the whole counsel of God’s Word. 


A vast majority of Christian America refuses to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.


A vast majority of Christian America refuses to listen to her bold Pastors and Ministers who sound the alarm to repentance.


A vast majority of Christian America has refused to listen to her God-ordained Prophets, her Watchmen on the wall, who cry, “There is trouble on the horizon. Unnecessary suffering approaches.  Judgment is nigh at hand.  Repent.” 


Therefore, according to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, Christian America continues to sink deeper and deeper into the quicksand of sin and her only hope of rescue is in wholehearted repentance.  



Fast & Pray or Eat & Repent?


Some across the land are shouting, “Let’s fast and pray that God would restore us.”  However, there is nothing in the Bible about fasting for God to restore a nation which is drowning in sin and refusing to repent.


God did not tell Jonah to go to Ninevah with the message of fasting. God sent Jonah to Ninevah with the message of repentance for wickedness.  Although once Ninevah received the message of repentance they did fast with sackcloth and ashes, Jonah never once told the people of Ninevah that they were to fast. Ninevah fasted only after they repented, as a sign of their repentance. (Jonah 1:1 thru 4:11) 


In the New Testament the Apostle Paul fasted for only three reasons - to increase his anointing, to sensitize his spirit to the voice of God and during times of extreme personal crisis and danger. None of these has an immediate connection with national repentance because of sin.


People have a tendency to fast because they think it will change God when in fact, fasting does not move God. Fasting changes and benefits the individual who is fasting.


We are not saying God might not tell someone to fast during a national crisis. Everyone must be led by the Holy Spirit within as to whether they should fast or not. (Romans 8:14, 16; 9:1, etc.) But there is no instruction in the New Testament for a nation to fast in lieu of repentance.  That is the idea of well-meaning, religious-minded Christians.  However, as well-meaning as they may be, fasting will do nothing to turn back the judgment of God. 


Only repentance will turn back the judgment of God.


Someone else might say, “When the Amorites, the Moabites and the children of Seir came against Israel, Jehoshaphat called a fast.” (2 Chronicles 20:4)  


Yes, he did indeed, but it was not to persuade God to pull Israel out of a quagmire of gross national sin.  They fasted because they desperately needed guidance from God as to how to withstand the approaching confederation of armies.  As a result, God spoke to them through the Prophet Jahaziel and a supernatural Word of Wisdom revealing where the attacking forces were hiding out in a staging area.


The next day Israel showed up at that staging area, began praising and worshipping God in the beauty of His Holiness, and the confederation of armies actually began fighting amongst themselves and destroying one another.  


All of Israel stood and watched in amazement as every one of their enemies literally killed one another.  When the last dead body fell to the ground, Jehoshaphat and Israel spent the next three days gathering up the armament, weaponry, riches and precious jewels left behind by their enemies. (2 Chronicles 20:1-25) 


This Bible narrative has nothing to do with Israel fasting for God to deliver them from gross national sins.  


This Bible narrative has to do with the children of Israel fasting in order to hear from God, like Paul fasted to hear from God.  


Christian America does not need to fast in order to hear from God to know what to do about her present crisis. God has already spoken in the Bible about what to do in the midst of a crisis which has been brought about by gross national sins. Let's look at it again.


"If that nation against whom I have pronounced (judgment) turn from their evil, (repent), I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them." (Jeremiah 18:8)


This is so simple even a child can understand it.


This is why we say, “Forget about fasting for the moment.  Let’s eat and simply repent for our gross national sins. Then God’s Laws of Sowing and Reaping will begin the process of automatically restoring us.”


There’s no need to stop eating, Christian America. 


There is only a need to stop sinning, particularly in the areas mentioned in this book.


When Christian America repents and asks forgiveness, Holy God will rescue her from the quicksand of judgment. 


No matter who teaches otherwise, the Bible does not say, “If My people which are called by My Name shall humble themselves and FAST and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven.”


Fasting is not even mentioned here in 2 Chronicles 7:14.  The religious human mind puts that in there. 


When the Lord appeared to Solomon in this chapter of Second Chronicles, He told him that humility, prayer, seeking God’s face and turning from wickedness (repentance) would open the door for the Lord to heal a sin-crippled nation.


No mention of fasting whatsoever. 


When the Lord said to Solomon, “…turn from their wicked ways…” He was specifically referring to the act of repentance for sin.  That is what “repentance” means.  It means “to turn around and go in the opposite direction” from wickedness. 


We believe fasting has its proper place, but our suggestion to backslidden Christian America at this time is, “Do not stop eating, Christian America.  Keep it simple like God keeps it simple.  Stop sinning.” 


Otherwise, the judgment that has come to America because of gross national sin will quickly compound to the degree that you will wish you had stopped sinning.


Recently a Minister of the Gospel posted on his Internet Blog that it was “nonsense” to believe that Barack Obama stripping America of wealth and sovereignty in pursuit of Islamic World Domination is God’s allowed judgment on a sin-sick, defiant nation. Apparently he never read what the Bible teaches about “the stranger within” who would come and strip any nation of wealth and sovereignty who defied Holy God. (Deuteronomy 28:43-47)


Apparently he is down on the judgment of God because he is not up on the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


This is why the Bible says, “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)   


This is why the Bible commands Ministers, “Study to shew yourself approved of God.” (2 Timothy 2:15) 


When one simply does not know what the Word of God says about America’s present sin-crippled condition, it would be best for them to say nothing at all as opposed to presenting make-believe, nonsensical doctrine.


Let’s go to the Bible and see exactly when the Laws of Sowing and Reaping will indeed cause judgment to come upon individuals and nations.  


1. When Stubbornness and Rebellion Prevail


“And if ye shall despise My statutes, or if your soul abhor My judgments, so that ye will not do all My commandments, but that ye break My covenant: I also will do (Hebrew: “allow”) this unto you; I will even appoint (allow) over you terror(ism), consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it…” (Leviticus 26:15-16)


There is no need to read any further into this chapter in Leviticus to understand what it is saying.  If you were to read further, you would discover what it describes as consequences for rebellion is not good at all.  We are confident you get the picture from what you just read in these two verses.  Should you choose to read further in Leviticus chapter 26, you will discover how stubbornness and rebellion brings tremendous curses to both individuals and entire nations, including terrorism. 


Why not repent now, Christian America, for forgetting from where your power, provision and protection once came?  By refusing to do so, Holy God, as a last resort, will allow the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to continue to work against you in such a way that you will ultimately wish you had repented.


“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 8:18-20)


Here the Prophet Moses makes it perfectly clear that individuals and nations who forget God will deeply regret having done so. Moses actually said that a nation who forgets God could actually "perish."  It is clear that Christian America is in the advanced stages of perishing over her sins.


The Lord also told Jeremiah that He would withdraw all good and every benefit from any nation who ignored His voice and did evil.


"And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in My sight, that it obey not My voice, then I will repent of the good wherewith I said I would benefit them." (Jeremiah 18:9-10)


Clearly we see the Lord's prophecy to Jeremiah coming to pass in the United States of America for doing evil in His sight and not obeying His voice. The Laws of Sowing and Reaping will automatically turn back this present judgment as soon as Christian America shows sincere signs of repentance.


“Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all My counsel, and would none of My reproof:” (Proverbs 1:24-25)


There are three primary reasons in the Bible for God “stretching forth” His hand or His arm.


One is for judgment such as when He stretched forth His arm and judged Egypt concerning Israel. (Deuteronomy 5:15) 


He also stretches forth His hand in Scripture to call individuals or nations to Himself, such as we read above in Proverbs chapter one.


He also stretches forth His hand to perform signs, wonders and miracles. (Acts 4:30-5:12)


God still stretches forth His hand today to judge, to call men and nations to Himself, as well as to perform signs, wonders and miracles. 


“For I am the Lord, I change not." (Malachi 3:6)


"Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)



2. When People Deliberately Sin and Refuse to Repent


“And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for My name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be My son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten (judge) him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But My mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.” (2 Samuel 7:12-15)


Here God is explaining to King David that it will be David’s son, Solomon, who would build a Temple for Him, not King David.  He promised David that He would personally look after Solomon and be a Father to him as long as Solomon was obedient.  However, if Solomon chose deliberate sin, refusing to repent, God also promised David that He would allow Solomon to be judged “with the rod of men and with the stripes of the children of men.”


Holy God is assuring King David that He will use individuals, and even other nations if necessary, to judge Solomon should he deliberately sin and refuse to repent.  This is the condition Christian America is in today.  She has deliberately sinned gross national sins and in her pride refuses to repent.  As a result, God is using the “rod of men and the stripes of the children of men” in the form of an Islamic President and his "Brotherhood" of Muslims to bring about judgment through the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


Should Christian America refuse to repent in response to this present judgment, it is highly possible that America will be overtaken by the Muslim nation’s dream of Islamic World Domination.  


3.  When People Absolutely Refuse to Listen to God


“For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, that He may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.” (Job 33:14-18)


God speaks to men and nations through His written and spoken/preached Word. (Matthew 28:19-20)  When they ignore His Word, He continues to speak through the voice of conscience. (Romans 1:19; 2:14-15; 9:1) 


When men do not listen to His Word or their conscience, God can also speak through dreams, visions, angelic visitations, prophecy, etc. 


If men and nations continue to refuse to listen to these many ways through which God speaks, He can and most definitely will speak to them in the form of direct judgment.  He has set up the Laws of Sowing and Reaping in such a way that judgment is a last resort to save lives.  However, reader beware. He will indeed resort to it. We just read in Job chapter 33 that He does it to save men from needlessly perishing. Isaiah also said He does it to teach men righteousness in order that their lives may be prolonged. (Isaiah 26:9)


In over thirty years of Christianity God has led me, Pastor John Hamel, to address thirty-eight individuals, informing them they were going to be judged, either through some sort of avoidable tragedy or unnecessary premature death, unless they judged themselves and repented for blatant or secret sin. 


"For this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many have died. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not have to be judged.  But when we are judged we are chastened of the Lord." (1 Corinthians 11:30-31)


To date, eleven of the thirty-eight have died prematurely and needlessly, many of them within an exact time-frame God gave me for them, because they would not judge themselves and repent. 


Thirteen have suffered unnecessary, heartbreaking tragedy, in some cases even their children dying, because they would not listen and judge themselves.


Only three of the individuals have had the humility, good sense and spiritual sensibility to judge themselves and repent for what they knew they were doing wrong. 


Eleven of the thirty-eight individuals are still pending. 


Seven of those are Pentecostal, Full Gospel or Word of Faith Ministers. 


Based upon the supernatural accuracy of all the other words of avoidable judgment, they, too, will suffer unnecessary, avoidable judgment unless they judge themselves and repent.


God told King Hezekiah through the Prophet Isaiah that he was going to die for his disobedience to the Almighty.  As a result, Hezekiah wept sore before the Lord and wholeheartedly repented.  God then told the Prophet Isaiah, “Go back and tell Hezekiah that I have seen his tears of repentance and I am now adding fifteen additional years to his life.” (Isaiah 38:1-6)


This narrative from Scripture reveals that all prophecies of judgment are conditional and can be changed through repentance.  By the way, you will notice by reading this passage that Hezekiah did not bother to fast. He just wept and repented immediately. 


God gives words such as these out of His goodness, not His wrath.  The Gifts of the Spirit are intended for positive, not negative use.  They are intended to pull man up out of his costly rut, not to put man down even deeper. (1 Corinthians 14:3) 


What could be more positive and uplifting than God sending His messenger to graciously and lovingly warn someone, “You are soon to be judged by the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping in the form of a great tragedy or even your own early death.  However, the Lord says to tell you that you can turn it back and avoid it, if only you will judge yourself and repent.”? 


How our hearts have broken time and time again to watch as the stubborn and rebellious, in their pride, refuse to receive the word of the Lord and suffer so unnecessarily.  


Our Pastor, Dr. Lester Sumrall once said, "It is amazing to me what some people will allow themselves and others to go through just to avoid five minutes of soul-cleansing shame."


“Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.” (Proverbs 15:10)


Stubbornness, pride and refusing to listen to God do not show up on an autopsy report.


For a greater understanding of the Prophet’s Office and how a loving God desires to lead His children away from unnecessary tragedy and premature death, read my (Pastor John's) testimony “The Albuquerque Fire Pit Visitation” at  See in particular chapter nine, entitled, “Supernatural Biblical Confirmation of My Ezekiel Mandate.”  


4. When People Deliberately Provoke God


“A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O Lord, rebuke me not in Thy wrath: neither chasten (judge) me in Thy hot displeasure.” (Psalm 38:1)


This Psalm was written by David in reference to his sin of murder and adultery with Uriah’s wife, Bathsheba.


Uriah was one of King David’s most trusted friends and military leaders.  David found Uriah’s wife to be quite attractive, deciding to have her at any cost, including committing adultery with her. David then conspired with other of his military leaders and deliberately had Uriah sent into the heat of battle where he knew Uriah would be readily killed. Once Uriah was dead and out of the equation, King David took Uriah’s wife as his own.


David knew he had provoked God by committing adultery with his devoted friend’s wife, having him killed and then marrying her.  This is why he pleaded with God to not judge him for what he had done.  David not only knew he deserved to be judged, but he also knew he had set the Laws of Sowing and Reaping into operation against himself.  As a result, the child he bore with Bathsheba died soon after birth in spite of David's extensive prayer and fasting. (2 Samuel 11:1-27; 12:1-24)


It is always unwise for men and nations to deliberately provoke God. 


We provoke God when He has given us dominion over sin and pride, yet we still refuse to change. (Romans 6:14)



5. When People Deliberately Forsake God


“If his children forsake My law, and walk not in my judgments; If they break My statutes, and keep not My commandments; Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.” (Psalm 89:30-32)


When men or nations turn their back on human conscience and/or God’s written Word, refusing to walk upright morally, He will ultimately resort to the use of the rod and stripes.  This is another clear Biblical reference to severe judgment as a last resort through the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.


Almighty God will resort to what Solomon referred to as “the reproof of life” when men or nations fall so low that it is the only thing that will produce results.  When this occurs in the lives of men or nations, it is never pleasant.  


Everything begins to come apart at the seams.  


This is the point where everything stops happening for men and nations and things start happening to men and nations.  


Only the completely foolish, hard-hearted, super prideful or demon-oppressed would dare push God this far. 


Be forewarned, Holy God can surely be provoked when men and nations deliberately forsake Him by forsaking conscience and/or His Word.


“The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.” (Proverbs 15:31)  


6. When People Stubbornly Refuse to Judge Themselves


“For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened (judged) of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.” (1 Corinthians 11:30-32)


When men and nations, Born Again Christians in particular, enter into deliberate sin and disobedience to God’s moral code, refusing to judge themselves, God will absolutely allow the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to judge those men and nations.  He will allow judgment to come because they allow judgment to come by refusing to judge themselves in their sin.


In this verse the Apostle Paul makes it unquestionably clear that Christians who refuse to judge themselves when they are in sin become weak, sickly and in many cases they die (sleep) prematurely. This could not possibly be clearer.  Christians in sin who refuse to judge themselves will face judgment in one way or another.  


Someone once smugly told Pastor John, "God loves me just like I am."  He responded, "Yes, indeed, God loves you just as you are. But He loves you so much He will not leave you like you are.  He's calling you to come up higher." 


God simply loves us too much to leave us in our sin.


Before traveling on to Heaven, Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin said, “There is nothing more lacking in the Charismatic Movement today than commitment, consecration and respect for the things of God.”


How true we have found this to be after nearly twenty-five years of Ministry together. In spite of the number of times I, John Hamel, have been commanded by Almighty God to bring a word of reproof, correction, warning or judgment to a Believer, I am still appalled by the number of Christians who, though called out supernaturally in their sin, absolutely refuse to repent. 


However, when men and nations judge themselves and repent for personal and national sins, such as Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni did in November 2012, God will indeed forgive and allow the process of restoration to begin.


Are you listening, Christian America?  


7. When People Sow to the Flesh


“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” (Galatians 6:7-8)


The Laws of Sowing and Reaping are unchanging, unfailing spiritual laws.


In nature everything reproduces after its own kind. Harvests are as sure as sowings.


The same is true in the realm of the spirit.  Men and nations will reap what they sow and, therefore, are responsible for their own destinies.  


When seeds of sin, compromise and corruption are planted, the Law of Sin and Death will go into operation against the sower.


When seeds of obedience, faithfulness and righteousness are planted, the Law of the Spirit of Life will go into operation on behalf of the sower.


Sin will reap the whirlwind and righteousness will reap the blessing.  


Whatever the sower allows and harvests, God will allow - good or bad.  Therefore, it is always best to plant seeds of obedience, faithfulness, morality and righteousness. 


Whenever the sower plants seeds of disobedience, faithlessness, immorality and unrighteousness, the sower is guaranteed to not like the harvest he is guaranteed to bring in.


By the way, every farmer knows his harvest is always tremendously greater than the amount of seed sown.


God will never allow Himself to be mocked when it comes to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. No individual or nation will ever find themselves to be the exception to this unyielding rule of God’s House. 


The sower is guaranteed to not only reap what they have sown, but they are guaranteed a supernatural compounding of what they have sown. 


Some people, through the small channel of human reason and the huge channel of human pride, think otherwise. But the Bible assures us, when one lives carnal, disobedient lives of contempt and disrespect for the things of God, payday always comes on an individual or a national level.


It might not come every week – but payday always comes.  


8. When People Are Deeply Loved of God


“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten (judge): be zealous therefore, and repent.” (Revelation 3:19)


We stated through our opening texts and comments, at the beginning of this book and throughout, that God only allows individuals and nations to be judged through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping when nothing else is working.  He does this out of His deep love and concern for all of humanity, not His wrath as some wrongfully teach. 


Sadly, some individuals and nations wrongly interpret God giving them much time given to repent as an unwillingness on His part to allow them to be judged. These individuals and nations are always proven wrong.


Our loving God is willing to judge but not to punish.  Punishment is rooted in anger.  Our Father God judges to discipline.  Discipline is rooted in love.  


Let’s read three verses from the Book of Proverbs that further confirm that God judges, not to punish, but to discipline us for the express purpose of turning us back towards the blessing.


“Turn you at My reproof: behold, I will pour out My Spirit unto you, I will make known My words unto you.” (Proverbs 1:23)


How merciful of a loving God to set up the Laws of Sowing and Reaping to begin to work for us once again the very moment we humbly receive His correction.


“Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.” (Proverbs 13:18)


Here again, a clear reference to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping bringing poverty and shame to the stubborn, but bringing honor to the humbly penitent.


“A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.” (Proverbs 17:10)


When God allows individuals and nations to be corrected by the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, the wise ones repent.  They, in turn, are restored to positions of dignity, honor, power, protection and prosperity.  The ones who will not repent walk headlong into needless suffering. 


In recent decades there has been great emphasis on the message of the unfailing laws of personal faith and financial prosperity as promised by the God of Love. 


Unfortunately, in far too many cases, this emphasis on God as our Loving Benefactor has been at the expense of the Biblical revelation that God is also our Lawgiver and Judge. (Isaiah 33:22; James 4:12)  


Many from within the “faith and prosperity camp” are not only unknowledgeable concerning the Doctrine of Judgment, but they are also quite adverse to it.  To many of them “it doesn’t fit with faith.”  They throw the band-aid of “God’s not out to get anybody” or “It’s all under the Blood” on all un-repented of sin.  They then continue to make all the right faith confessions for prosperity, in spite of the fact God may be trying to tell them, “Repent. The bridge is out just ahead of you.” 


We have witnessed many run headlong into tragedy by making this grave "faith" mistake. 


It can be very dangerous indeed to become a “one topic” Christian or Minister, such as "a faith person" or "a prosperity person." It is the whole counsel of God’s Word that keeps one traveling down the middle of the road and out of the ditches to either side.  


Believe it or not, the Most High God will judge men and nations when they stubbornly rebel against Him, whether they are "a faith person," or "a prosperity person," or whatever type of Christian they consider themselves to be. 


No one who sins escapes the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.  


God will judge men and nations when they deliberately sin, refusing to listen and deliberately provoking Him.  


God will allow judgment through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping for all who forsake Him, refusing to judge themselves in their sin and continuing to sow to their flesh.  


This is what the Bible teaches.   


Holy God allows judgment to come through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping for one reason and one reason alone.  He allows it because He loves the apex of His creative works - humanity, and He desires that they be blessed and not cursed. He desires that they live long and strong, not die sick and weakly.


Christian America has rebelled against Holy God in all of the ways stated in this book and more for multiplied decades. 


America is raging out of control morally and has been deserving of judgment for a long time coming. 


God has been merciful and longsuffering beyond all this country could have hoped for. 


However, Christian America is now being called to task over her rebellion as she finds herself bound in a prison of Islamic aggression and infiltration, while being stripped of great wealth and world power.


In the Bible, Samson's out-of-control immorality bound him to his enemies as well, stripping him of his God-given wisdom and power. 


"The Philistines took Samson, put out his eyes, bound him with fetters of brass and he did grind in the prison house." (Judges 16:21)


Christian America must learn from Samson. Sin blinds. Sin binds. Sin grinds.  


For the most part, lazy, lethargic, prideful Christian Americans continue to refuse to repent of their backsliding. 


Most Christian Americans wake up daily and look at the sinful, deceived condition of themselves and their country, hit the snooze button, roll over, pull the sheet up over their heads and go right on sleeping.


Dr. Billy Graham recently stated in a letter to Christian America, "Self-centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle. My heart aches for America and its deceived people."


Dr. Graham's wife, Ruth, once said to him, "Billy, I  am concerned that if God doesn't (judge) America for her sins, He is going to owe Sodom and Gomorrah an apology."


The Most High God will apologize to no one. 


Therefore, as a result of God's deep love for Christian America and through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping as a last resort, America is now experiencing the judgment Dr. Graham and his wife referred to.  




Chapter 5:  It Wasn't Too Late for Ninevah. It's Not Too Late for America!



“For people who hate discipline and only get more stubborn, there’ll come a day when life tumbles in and they break, but by then it will be too late to help them.” (Proverbs 29:1, Message Bible)  


We do not yet believe it is too late for Almighty God to help Christian America.  We believe through repentance, beginning in the House of God, America’s present judgment can be turned into America’s blessing. (1 Peter 4:17) 


But it is going to take obedience. It is going to take repentance.


"Repent" is a little word that packs a powerful punch when put into action.


In Jonah's day Ninevah was the superpower of the world. It was the capital of the Assyrian Empire and a center of great power and influence. It was so large it took three days to walk completely around it, even when nipping along smartly! 


Ninevah was also a city filled with evil, political corruption, immorality, crime and violence. It was not safe to live in Ninevah. 


The Assyrians populating Ninevah hated Israel with a passion and the nation of Israel had no love lost for the Assyrians.  


For Jonah to go into Ninevah and preach the message "Repent or you'll be overthrown in forty days!" was as dangerous as jumping into a pack of wolves with a sack of cheeseburgers.  Without God's help there was no coming out of it alive.  It was quite similar to preaching the message of repentance to America today.  


However, as powerful, corrupt, evil, immoral and defiled as Ninevah was, when Jonah obeyed God and began to preach the message of repentance from wickedness the entire city  began to do so supernaturally. 


Jonah's basic message was bold, straightforward, unbelievably simple and almost childlike, "Repent for your wickedness!"  


Jonah's message caught on immediately and tore through Ninevah like wildfire from one end to the other.  The people actually believed what Jonah was saying.  


Jonah's simple message preached by the anointing of the Holy Spirit was so convincing that even their evil, corrupt, anti-morality, anti-Jehovah, anti-Israel King came immediately down off his lofty throne, fell on his face and openly repented before his citizens and the Most High God.


As a result of Ninevah's repentance, the Laws of Sowing and Reaping, which for so long had been working against them, were instantly reversed and God poured His blessing upon Ninevah.


"And God saw their works that they turned from their evil way: And God repented of the evil that He had said He would do (allow) unto them; and He did it not." (Jonah 3:10) 


When Christian America does a comparatively little thing and begins to corporately repent for her primary national sins of abortion, immorality, rejecting capital punishment and tampering with Israel’s national security, Almighty God will do a big thing and crush Islamic Jihad in America, turning back America’s present deserved judgment.  


Anyone who thinks America being stripped of her power, wealth and sovereignty is unrelated to her horrific national sins, referring to the connection as “nonsense” is simply living in the Land of Tra La Lee.


Had Ninevah refused to repent only to be judged for doing so, would it have been "nonsense" to believe that Ninevah's judgment was directly connected to Ninevah's sin?  


Of course not.  


God had decreed it and God has decreed for all generations that any nation that defies Him in the ways Ninevah defied Him will pay a penalty directly commensurate to their crimes according to the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. (Galatians 6:7-9)


As a matter of fact, Christian America is even more responsible than Ninevah for the same types of sin because we have been being warned for centuries by Jesus, Who is greater than Jonah.


"The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here." (Luke 11:32)



Early America Used More Wisdom than Modern America


In many ways, early Colonial America operated in wisdom to a far greater degree than present day America.  When they would find themselves facing attack, drought, sickness epidemic or any other type of communal tragedy, they knew that fellowship with God had been broken by someone. The leadership would call a council and ask who amongst them was sinning.  


When the guilty party would step forth and confess, asking forgiveness God would forgive. The attacks would cease. The skies would pour forth with sweet rain. The sickness epidemic would be turned back. 


The Laws of Sowing and Reaping were once again working for them and no longer working against them. 




Not if you believe the Bible and early American history! 


Some American Ministers need to brush up on their Bibles as well as their country's true beginnings by reading "The Light and The Glory."  It would prevent them from saying some of the nonsensical, uneducated things they say. 


Written by Rev. Peter Marshall and David Manuel, it is an historical narrative of the most amazing supernatural interventions experienced by the Founders of this Christian nation through the Laws of Sowing and Reaping. 


It will knock the nonsense right out of any Minister who calls God's ordained, prophesied judgment "Nonsense." 


Sad to say but some modern Ministers are so lacking in wisdom they could throw a rock at the ground and miss!


Early American Ministers and Christians had the wisdom of God and knew a whole lot more about God as their Lawgiver and Judge than far too many hot shot, 21st Century "Grace" Preachers do today! 


Early American Ministers and Christians knew God had a plan for America.  They knew obedience to His Word would cause that plan to come to pass.  They also knew well that their sin would severely hinder God's plan, God's provision and God's protection. They knew, like Father Abraham, that the only way to receive the blessing of God was to obey His voice, whether it be through His written Word or His actual voice.


"And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of Heaven the second time, and said ... In thy seed shall all the nations of the Earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed My voice." (Genesis 22:15, 18)


Early Christian America understood, believed in and cooperated with the Word of God, the voice of God and the Laws of Sowing and Reaping.


Modern Christian America is slowly beginning to understand that her sin is severely hindering God's plan for her, but she has a ways to go yet.


The first four years of this present Presidential administration was to serve as a warning to backslidden Christian America.  It is always better to receive God’s warning than to have to receive His allowed judgment.  


Sadly, Christian America did not receive God’s warning. 


Therefore, this present extended four-year Presidential administration, we believe, is now God’s allowed judgment for rejecting His four-year warning.  


We call this "The Obama Administration. Phase Two. Judgment."


Difficulties, tragedies, calamities and disasters are going to compound now, becoming worse and worse for freedom-loving America under this allowed judgment of God. 


God's intention in allowing it is that we will turn back from our wickedness so that He may bless us once again.



What You Can Do to Make a Difference and Turn Back Judgment


Some, after reading this book, will wonder, "What can I do to make a difference and turn back judgment?"  


If you are a Pastor or a Preacher you will begin preaching repentance with zeal, weaving it into everything you minister from the pulpit.


There are many things Christian laity can do to turn their country back to God as well.  


If you have been involved directly or indirectly in any of America's gross national sins, you, personally, can repent and God will forgive you.  You can then pray for your Christian countrymen's repentance and God will honor your faith. 


It is vitally important that we pray asking the Almighty to grant Godly sorrow to the hearts of our fellow countrymen for their crimes against Him. God will do this if someone will ask Him to do this.  The Apostle Paul said Godly sorrow working in the heart of a Believer will cause them to come to the place of actually wanting to repent for their sins, whatever they may be. (2 Corinthians 7:10)


The Apostle Paul also said that repentance is a gift granted by God.  If we will ask Him to give it to the sinful, He will do so. (2 Timothy 2:25-26)


Asking God daily to grant Godly sorrow and the gift of repentance to your fallen Christian countrymen will have greater impact than most anything else you could do.


"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16) 


You may be thinking, "What else can I do?  What else can I do in addition to praying to show God I'm serious about my country repenting?" 


To start with  you could make up your mind to reject what we call "The Four Foolish Dogmas."  


Foolish Dogma 1, "I don't believe in talking about religion or politics."  


If the devil can force Christians to shy away from religion and politics, then he can easily dominate their nation. This is what he did through Adolph Hitler.  He still does it today through dictators in Middle Eastern, Asian and many other countries. Be bold to speak forth concerning your Christian beliefs. Be sure to vote for moral political leadership whether they are Christians or not. God will honor moral unsaved leaders long before He will honor immoral saved leaders. Vote pro-life. Vote pro-morality. Vote pro-Israel.


Foolish Dogma 2, "You can't legislate morality." 


Many do not believe that it is proper to impose morality through legislation.  That is a very special kind of stupid!  Christian America has legislated morality for as long as it has existed. Let someone urinate on a public sidewalk and see how far "you can't legislate morality" gets them.  America's Federal and State governments can and must legislate morality. We have come to a sick place in our society where major American cities pass laws allowing public nudity and public sex in the name of "you can't legislate morality." Take a stand against immorality by using the power of the one vote - your vote. Encourage others to vote and to vote for moral leadership. Character matters to God and it must begin to matter to Christian America once again.


Foolish Dogma 3, "Christians need only to pray and evangelize and leave politics to the people of the world." 


If ever a lie was puked forth from the bowels of Hell, this one sure was!  Christians must pray, evangelize and become politically active. It is unreasonable to believe that a Loving God would leave the governing of His children to Satan and his children alone.  The Bible says all things, including the political system this country has been built upon, came out of the mind of Christ and are to be used for His glory. (Colossians 1:16) The Bible says Christ desires to fill all things. That includes politics. The Constitution of the United States drew on the Holy Scripture as their primary source of wisdom and inspiration.


Foolish Dogma 4, "But even the Constitution says there must be a separation of Church and State." 


For decades Liberals have tried to pull the wool over the eyes of sleeping, Conservative, Christian American people with this lie. So many people have finally discovered that the words "separation of Church and State" are not even in the Constitution that liberal America has finally realized they are not going to get away with telling that lie any longer.  So they have stopped promoting it. The "separation of Church and State" lie came about when something Thomas Jefferson wrote to a body of Christians in Connecticut was deliberately twisted and spun to keep Christians from becoming involved in politics. 


Here is that statement from President Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists on January 1, 1802. 


"The First Amendment has erected a wall of separation between Church and State, but that wall is a one directional wall; it keeps the government from running the Church, but it makes sure that Christian principles will always stay in government."


So much for the "separation of Church and State" lie that has been being shoved down Christian America's throat for decades in order to keep Christians out of politics.  President Jefferson's statement was too insure that Christians would always remain involved in government, not stay out of government.


President George Washington's first act as Commander-in-Chief was to assign Christian chaplains to every American regiment. In doing so he stated, "We cannot do this (save America from tyranny) without God."


In his farewell address to the nation, President Washington said, "It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible... Do not let anyone claim the tribute of American patriotism if they ever attempt to remove religion (the Bible) from politics."


President Washington began and ended his political career by making sure the American people fully understood the utter importance of keeping the God of Christianity in government and not kicking Him out of government.


Of the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, the majority were Christians and nearly half of the signers were graduates of Christian Divinity school. Yet, schools today deceitfully teach our children those signers were all deists, atheists or agnostics.


The Bible is the core of all our national documents and it once made us the most stable government in the world.  We have lost that stability because we have thrown Jesus Christ and the Word of God out of government and out of society.  


Make a decision today to not believe the "separation of Church and State" lie.  That is not in the Constitution.  


With the exception of Barack Hussein Obama, the vast majority of American Presidents have fought to keep Christianity involved in government knowing it is both the will of God and the will of the Founding Fathers

Take your stand concerning "The Four Foolish Dogmas."  You are not a coward.  You are a brave Christian citizen of the greatest country in the world.  


You could also go to an abortion clinic and stand out front, asking women if they need someone to talk to.  You could hand them a tract about God's love and forgiveness and His promise to help them.  


You could talk to your Pastor and ask him why he allows sexual sin to exist and to spread within your congregation, if he is doing so. If he refuses to change, you should ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to another Church where the Pastor obeys the Bible and where God is not being defied and grieved. 


You could ask your Pastor why he allows homosexuals to attend his services without instructing them in their need to comply with the Scripture, if he is doing so.  


You could also ask your Pastor why he or she performs homosexual wedding ceremonies when the Bible forbids homosexuality, if this is occurring.  If your Pastor refuses to change and come in line with the Bible, the Holy Spirit will show you a Church where Jesus and the Bible are honored.


You could become proactive concerning capital punishment or any of these other issues by contacting your State and National Representatives and Senators in writing, letting them know how you feel about all of these issues. 


You could become involved with an organization that speaks out in defense of Israel's right to exist and to live free from terrorism, such as the American Center for Law and Justice, Post Office Box 90555, Washington, DC. 20090-0555. Online at


You can and must register to vote if you have never done so and very deliberately, purposely vote for Pro-life, Pro-morality, Pro-capital punishment and Pro-Israel candidates. 


Ask God for wisdom as to what you could put your hand to as an act of faith and obedience. (James 1:5-8)



Don't Be a Backward Christian


Far too many Christians today live what we call "backward Christianity."  They wrongly believe they can exercise faith in Jesus Christ to have all their needs met but barely give a thought to repentance on an individual or a national level when crimes are committed against God. To them, faith is their focus and repentance is mostly inconsequential.


They do not seem to realize that the Apostle Paul said repentance must always come first and foremost, and faith is to follow.


"Testifying both to the Jews and also to the Greeks repentance towards God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." (Acts 20:21)


Repentance is a Foundational Doctrine of Jesus Christ and one that all Ministers of the Gospel are being called to shout from the rooftops during this time of the greatest national crisis in Christian America's history. (Hebrews 6:1-3)


One day I felt an urgency in my spirit. I knew God was wanting to say something to me so I immediately got into the Spirit by praying in other Tongues.  I no sooner had done that than the following interpretation came to me by the Spirit of the Lord. "Given the present condition of your country and the world, it is selfish to not make the subject of 'Repentance' the focal point of all your preaching and teaching. Many will answer to Me for this."


Christian, Preachers included, you are on probation while you are here on Planet Earth. God has not predetermined your Eternity in Heaven.  You are predetermining how you will spend Eternity in Heaven by how effectively you obey the Gospel concerning the issues presented in this Bible message to fallen Christian America.


One day you are going to stand before what the Apostle Paul called the BEMA Judgment Seat of Christ. (Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10) 


This will be the most scrutinizing investigation you will ever endure in your life.  There you will give account for every way you did or did not obey Him while you were on this Planet. 


There you will have rewards given or rewards taken away based upon how effectively you obeyed the precious Holy written Word of God while you sojourned on Planet Earth.


The closer you walk with Jesus here according to His written Word, the closer you will walk with Him there.


Christian America has been warned by the Spirit of God concerning her gross national sins. She did not listen.


Christian America is now being severely judged by the steel punch of the Laws of Sowing and Reaping concerning her gross national sins. 


Our prayer is that Christian America will awake unto righteousness and realize being warned and repenting is always far better than being judged.


Almighty God is indeed Christian America's Loving Father and Benefactor.  


But we must always remember that He is also our Judge, Lawgiver and Sovereign King and He will not suffer long the exploitation of His grace.  


However, when American Preachers finally set aside their own agendas and preach Christ's message of repentance for our national sins and when Christian America is ready to yield to the preaching of repentance, Holy God is ready to bless America once again.  He said so through the Prophet Jeremiah.


"If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil I thought to do (allow) unto them." (Jeremiah 18:80)
