He's Been There Regardless
Those who truly know what our 2008 presidential candidates stand for are very concerned about the direction the U.S.A. could take if the wrong one is elected this Tuesday. As you'll hear in today's message, it is VERY important that you vote wisely and advisedly. But regardless of what happens on the 4th, God's already been in our future, and if we put our trust in him, he'll lead us through.

No Matter What
As Adam and Eve were given their sentences, as they were cursed with pain, sorrow, sickness, and death, God gave them a glimpse of the future. He said to the serpent, "You shall bruise his heel," and about the seed of woman, "and he shall crush your head."
You see, mankind was about to enter their first day in a sin-cursed world. But what they did not realize was that Jesus has already been there. God, who is eternal, already saw, already knew, everything they would face in this frightening new world.
Maybe you're waiting to hear a verdict from the doctor, and we're afraid of what we're going to hear. God has already been there.
Maybe you're afraid you're going to be laid off from your job, or you already have been, and you are dreading the days ahead. God has already been there.
No matter how unsure we are about the future, God knows exactly what's going to happen, because he's already been there, and no matter how things may appear, he's still in control.
He's been there. He knows. And if we only trust in him and follow where he leads, he will guide us safely through the unknown, and into the promised land.
We desperately need God's mercy. We've murdered more innocent people than Hitler could have ever dreamed. And we call it a choice. Even some in the church have argued that we shouldn't outlaw abortion because we'd be taking away people's rights. God have mercy on us, if we don't call murder murder, and if we don't use our voice and our vote to stand up for the rights of the most innocent people among us.
We desperately need to repent in the stead of those who support the degredation of the foundation of the family by redefining the most sacred of God's covenants between a man and a woman. God have mercy on us for making a mockery of what you have ordained by seeking to redefine it to include that which is an abomination in your sight! And prick our hearts, resurrect our consciences, so that we cannot use our vote to support this mockery, or withhold our vote from holding back the tide of evil that is sweeping our nation!
But he's been there.
And no matter what happens on November 4th, we can know that God's been there, he's been to the 5th, he's been to 2009, he's been to the next election, he's been to the rise of the beast, he's been to the global execution of true believers, and he's been to the Mount of Olives, his feet touching down upon the earth one final time, as all the peoples of the earth bow in worship to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, the risen Lamb of God!

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Prayer for Sister – Kathy writes, My sister, Janet, is in need of prayer. I spoke with her tonight and she is really down. She moved four months ago to a new city in a new state with her husband. Her daughter graduated college four months ago and is now in Australia learning to do missionary work. Her son lives 3 hrs away, but his company has just been bought out, he will lose his position in 4-6 months, he is in the middle of building a home which he now will not be able to afford and his last two job interviews are not panning out. My brother in law is struggling at his new job and travels a great deal now and works late. In short -- she is trying to support them all through all their challenges, and is feeling weighed down herself and is far removed from the support system upon which she has relied for her 27 years in her former town. She is a deeply spiritual woman, and it takes a lot to flag her spirit. Her brother and I and our parents are all 12 hours away. I ask for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to descend upon her, to nourish and rejuvenate her, to cloak her in the protection of the Blood of Jesus from all dangers and to protect her this night and to remove any doubt, worry, or other agents which are seeking to dampen her spirit and her resolve. I ask your prayers for her tonight and in the future that she be kept safe and uplifted by God. Thank you for your prayers and for your ministry -- I will pray for you also. In Jesus' name and love, Kathy
Prayer for Hope – Sydnee writes, I have been feeling like I have nothing else to give or offer anymore...I am yelling at my daughter more and more and have put our bank account in the negitive so far that we have no money to live on or have money for Christmas for our daughter. I am so discontent with myself and feel my soul needs to be prayed for (not that I have not been saved, I have).
Continued Recovery – Jen's step father had cancer removed a few weeks ago and is going through chemotherapy. Please pray for strength and healing, and that this will result in God's glory in his life.
Abducted Girl – The 13-year-old daughter of a member of our church was abducted by a 42-year-old man. Please pray for her complete safety and protection in all ways, and that they would be found quickly and the daughter returned to her mother.
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
