THE CHURCH MUST WAKE UP.
This election is about the future of America. It has everything to do with your religious freedom. This election will impact my children and grandchildren! If you missed President Obama's address to the UN yesterday I would encourage you to listen to it. While the President declared that the world is a "safer" place, terror attacks are on the increase within our borders. This is a season for the "watchmen", intercessors to be vigilant. Without Heaven’s intervention we will experience an increase of terror attacks, as we get closer to this Presidential election. The best defense is always an advancing offense - a praying church. It is critical that the church understand the real issues going into this election. There are 2 very different paths before our Nation. The critical factor before us is not the economy. While the economy is a concern for everyone, what’s critical is our freedom as Americans. Islamic ideology and doctrine is now being taught in the public school systems while at the same time Christianity is being banned. In public schools the Quran is taught while the Bible has been removed. It is shocking that American politicians who confess to be followers of Jesus Christ refuse to discuss, educate, and debate the advancing political Islamic agenda using the teachings from the Quran itself. The Quran violently opposes the values of a Judeo-Christian America. The United States of America which was founded as a Christian Nation - "ONE NATION UNDER GOD"(not one nation under many gods), is openly embracing a religious ideology that denies religious freedom and civil liberty.
The Islamic Quran, which we are now teaching in our schools in the name of religious tolerance, instructs and commands the killing of Jews and Christians. Today the best minds and cyber terrorism experts have been summoned to try and solve the growing crisis of Americans who are now being "radicalized" with Islamic terrorist ideology within our own country. We will throw millions of our tax dollars at this crisis while allowing and even mandating that the Quran and Islamic ideology be taught in our schools. This is nothing more than the "spirit of stupid".
Whoa! This means there are more than 100,000 Muslim adults living in this country who could justify a suicide bombing in the name of their religion." Its time for the church to stop bowing at the alter of political correctness. It’s also time for the pastors of North America to tear down the political correct alters within their cities and counties declaring TRUTH. The church is at War! This is more than an ideological war and it’s certainly more than a political battle between Republicans and Democrats. The VIOLENT atrocities, murders and casualties committed by Islamic jihadists witnessed daily on the news shows the suffering and reveals to us a real war with real Flesh and Blood terrorist in the natural. What we see and experience in the natural is real and it should shake and awaken the church out from her slumber to engage in the greater spiritual battle.
The church in America is at war – This is a Spiritual War!
Jesus reminds us in Matthew chapter 11 “… the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” I often remind myself of the context of these words of Christ. John the Baptist had just been violently beheaded. There is a war going on in the heavens and it can cause great suffering in the earth realm. This is a season where every believer must clearly understand not only their identity in Christ, they must know how to stand and battle exercising their Authority in Christ.
The apostle Paul reminds us in Ephesians 6 verse 12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
The church for too long has been trying to operate using the philosophies of this world, the models and strategies of the corporate world and the financing of Wall Street to advance the Kingdom of God. God has made it very clear declaring, it’s not man’s might nor his power but God’s Holy Spirit that will protect, empower and advance His church triumphantly.
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ..."
Yes, there is a call for a violent response - only the violent shall take it by force!
A violent prayer, targeted at tearing down the strongholds of the enemy.
A violent prayer, casting down all arguments and ideologies that exalt themselves against the knowledge of the Only True God.
A violent hatred for sin and a radical love for the sinner
As an American you and I have a responsibility to vote: Your vote matters! As a Born Again Believer you and I have a responsibility to pray: Your prayer makes a difference – your violent prayers destroy the strongholds of the enemy and push back the gates of hell.
Pray for the thousands of Muslim refugees that have been displaced from their homes.
Pray for the salvation of many Muslims during this very difficult time of war and suffering.
Pray for the Pastors and church leaders in Syria and other Muslim countries that are today discipling thousands of new believers and followers of Jesus Christ as a result of the crisis.
Pray for the persecuted Christians in the Islamic world who are suffering as a result of their faith in Jesus Christ.
Remember, you are more than a conqueror in Christ. This is who you are positioned and seated with Him. “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
