I HAVE A VISION
God had given me a vision! He has shown me the site of hundreds, maybe even thousands of committed, Bible believing Christians marching in the streets of America, openly declaring their faith, and the truth of God’s word. Some are holding signs in their hands that declare that there is but one God, and one Savior, Jesus Christ. That he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, that there is only one way to God. They are publicly and openly stating that the church will not be silent any more, that we have had enough of the tyrannical actions of the ungodly, perverting everything that is sacred.
Many of these marchers have their hands raised in the air as they march along praying in the Holy Spirit. God gave me a vision of a giant prayer march where the church begins to take back America for Christ. We can no longer sit around, the time has come for the church to practice what it preaches, to apply the Word of God, and put it’s faith into action.
God has commanded us in Matthew 5:44 “But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you;”, and in Luke 6:28 “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them who despitefully use you.”
The church has fallen far short of following these commandments, in many cases we have totally ignored these Scriptural mandates. Our natural tendencies as human beings is to scheme for a way to get back at those who abuse us, and to lash out at them in anger, but that is not what God has commanded us to do, that is our flesh reacting carnally, we need to learn to operate in the Spirit .
A large portion of the church has become spiritually weak, apathetic, and indifferent to the things of the Spirit of God, the church no longer engages in true spiritual warfare. We have not been adequately taught how to fight on our knees, we have instead resorted to the flesh.
A large part of the church refuses to become politically active, many think that just because Jesus is coming soon, we can just relax, and wait around while society goes to hell in a hand basket. Many have the excuse that “I am just not the type of person that can do that sort of thing”. Some people just expect someone else to do it, instead of doing it themselves. These destructive attitudes is the cause of the moral and spiritual decline in America, why many are now hostile to the things of God, and why those who have evil intentions are now in charge.
I believe it is the duty of every Christian to be politically involved, to speak openly and honestly the truth to a lost and dying culture. We are called to be ambassadors for Christ in this world, we are called to be salt and light, we are to be the moral, ethical, and spiritual preservative force throughout the entire world, and shine the light of the Gospel of Christ. God’s Word say’s in Matthew 5:13 - ‘Ye are the salt of the land, but if the salt may lose savour (flavor, saltiness), in what shall it be salted? for nothing is it good henceforth, except to be cast without, and to be trodden down by men. A large portion of the church in America appears to have lost it’s saltiness, once salt is no longer salty, it is absolutely no good, and cannot become salty again.
I pray that this is not true.
I pray that the church in America has some saltiness left in her.
I pray the church will wake up now, and take the message to the streets.
In my vision men and women of God marched together, thousands of them publicly declaring their faith openly, and freely. Sure there are those who ferverently oppose Christianity, and want to keep the church locked inside a box, and quiet, but we can no longer be silent. We must boldly and without reservation proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord to our culture, even if many don’t like it. If they don’t want to hear it, they can plug their ears, and walk away, they are free do that. We must come alive now! The future of America depends upon the church being renewed and revived. We need Holy Fire to burn again in our hearts, we need to fall on our faces in repentance, and ask God to empower with his Holy Spirit like never before.
