May there be a resurgence of these famous words from Thomas Jefferson in this generation: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are a gift of God?” As you read these words, may they challenge your heart to consider that the foundation of freedom rests in respecting human life first. The Declaration of Independence makes it clear, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The God of heaven burns with an unquenchable fiery passion to see His children step into their prophetic destiny through His divine work to govern, guard and guide their lives. Jesus Christ, Alpha and Omega, who knows all things from beginning to end, has taken me on a powerful transformational prophetic journey toward the convergence of revival fire and governmental authority since 2016.
A topic burning across American soil is the racial divide. Many ideas and concepts, including the rewriting of American history, have spawned major spiritual warfare fueling division in this great nation. Some have made the color of the skin the focus, when God is calling us to discern the impact of sin in the earth. Since the fall of Adam in the beginning, we cannot lose sight of the foundational truth that through one man’s disobedience sin entered the world and death spread to all men because all have sinned. Sin is the problem, not the color of skin. Any human being, no matter the color of their skin, bleeds red when their skin is broken, confirming that God’s Word is true.
Welcome to the last days! It appears that the legislative laws of this nation are rapidly beginning to favor sin over holiness. No matter how deceptively persuasive science, health care and the government have become, we must remember that what is legalized on this earth could still be illegal in heaven according to the Bible.
Pastor Caleb Cooper was at the Capitol Jan. 6. He shares how the events unfolded where he stood. Hearts across the nation are unsettled and potentially confused by what happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Social media is flooded with images, videos and many perspectives of the U.S. Capitol being stormed by what many call "Trump supporters." The media, which some say functions like a modern-day false prophet, is painting its own picture of the narrative. Americans are left to process what is truth, error and deception about the events of that historic day.
The new year is on the horizon, and many hearts across the earth remain unsettled as the decade of the roaring 2020s has touched every part of the globe. Few, if anyone, can say that they have not been impacted at some level by the COVID crisis. It is still unclear what the days ahead will reveal concerning the elections and the next presidency, if there will be a transition of power and potential unrest on the soil of America.
We are living in unprecedented critical times in America that warrant the voice and vote of the essential church. The adversary, the devil, knows his time is short and that the trumpet of God will soon sound and Jesus Christ will crack the clouds.
