CITY on a HILL


America’s clock ticks 11:59. The sand in the hourglass is just about poured out and God waits with His rod of judgement.

Crying and bowing to worship and seek God’s mercy on America, I keep wondering how God’s people could have allowed this once glorious nation to sink to such depravity. How often did Israel and Judah fall into captivity and God send judges to guide her into repentance and restoration. Ezekiel blasted the evil shepherds for not protecting the sheep and for allowing the wolves and predators to devour those entrusted to him. Ezek 34, Zech 11:17 and Jer 23:1.

God is very displeased with the shepherds. No one else could be responsible for the apathetic and powerless state of the church except pastors, priests and rabbi’s of our nation! Now we are at the precipice of utter annihilation. I weep bitterly for what is to come, but something in me still kindles…an urgency to persistently petition our merciful God for more time to preach His restoring word and bring forth the harvest of lost souls,. He is still the God of the eleventh hour and with Him all things are possible.

I’ve been blessed to unite in powerful, intercessory prayer with several devoted ans spirit-filled women who share a passion for a restored America. Though we are just about at twelve, we still have that sacred minute to seek a sledgehammer of righteousness that would suddenly overtake the sleeping church!

Our enemy has already infiltrated almost every area of our government.Conquest, anarchy and violence is their means to overtake America, but Godly, spirit-filled women will rise up in God’s power. Our weapons will not be guns, ammunition and bloodshed, but our invincible ammunition will be the power and Love of God almighty!

Love conquers all and we must first come to the realization that God did not ordain violence and genocide as a means to conquer.

Several great leaders of God accomplished restoration and victory for their people. Nehemiah, Esther and King Jehoshaphat stood boldly to follow the vision God placed in their hearts
Right now, there are women of faith scattered abroad America and God is calling us together in prayer, weeping and fasting…that God would give us just one more opportunity to powerfully influence arenas of finance, the economy, science, medicine and faith! Daniel and his friends were given divine wisdom in all areas of life and I await God’s anointing of leaders who will greatly transform our culture in these last days. It is time to remember our brothers and sisters of Biblical times who arose in prominence for such a time as this! God has not changed. he is the same, yesterday and tomorrow. His plans are still, to prosper us, not to harm us. let us no longer allow our nemesis to mow us over without any resistance!! It is time for us to shift our gaze from the body count, the devastation, the famine and the lack…to Him who is able to supply our every need…even the need for divine wisdom, invention and cunning. .Oh, the glories our heavenly father has for us. It is time for His bride, the church, to take seriously the duty and obligation of powerful intercession.

Our parents and grandparents allowed themselves to be consumed by raising their families and bringing home a paycheck. They’ve neglected their civic responsibilities of voting and making their voices heard. They allowed prayer to be taken out of schools and public places and later allowed Roe against Wade to prevail as law of the land. Look what has happened to America because of the atheists hatred of God? Sadly, the church has not learned her lesson. Abominations are being instituted across our land without any resistance at all!! God help us.

God’s people must wake up. It is almost too late. We must stop ignoring the insidious conquests of satan to completely corrupt and defile America. She is ripe for judgement. I implore you people of God to do your research. To investigate what laws are being revamp. We must not fear being involved in the political process. Our military paid a great price with their lives for our freedom. We must honor them and realize that liberty was not free. Our liberty is about to be taken from us right before our eyes. It is time for God’s people to be a people of repentance and seeking His face with all our hearts…TODAY!

Let us be that CITY on a Hill that Jesus called us to be. Now is the time to realize your luminescence! Arise and shine, my people.

LIBERTY and POLITICS


As my husband and I were getting ready to wind down and retire after a long day, he remarked that his stance of Christians’ civic and voting responsibility was causing a stir with certain of his co-workers. Ones responses was,

“Christians should just follow Jesus example. He never told us to be involved in politics.”

Sound familiar? Mark and I both share the same ideologies and deeply revere the foundations that our godly forefathers incepted. The past year, I’ve been feeling the the weight of the disgraces permeating our once glorious nation and that weight has drawn me to the daily discipline of interceding in prayer on behalf of my beloved country. I asked God to show me how He felt about politics, voting and our responsibility as his peculiar, chosen and special people. After many restless nights praying about this, he finally compelled me to dig deeply into His word.

My Bible opened to Deuteronomy 16:18-20

18 “You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers in all your [a]towns which the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19 You shall not distort justice; you shall not [b]be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous. 20 Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 23:6-9 (NIV)

6 “Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. 7 Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.

8 “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the innocent.

9 “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.

These two sections declare that we are to elect and be involved in all the complex and pressing issues that assail our families, communities and nation! Many Christians use the excuse of “separation of church and state” when there is no such term forbidding us to be a part of the election process of officials. We had better get our information together before we make excuses. If we continue to allow atheists and liberals to edit and re-write or Constitution, we will end up enslaved like the Israelites of the old testament.

Presently, a great debate rages regarding Mitt Romney’s Mormon beliefs. This could divide evangelicals and could bring about the re-election of president Obama.

I’d like to talk a little about the law of religion and the law of grace. The Bible is always our guide whenever we are faced with very difficult decisions, so the following discourse about Jesus should be a guideline on how to vote this November election.

The Pharisees loved to try to trap Jesus in a debate regrading any action that seemed unceremonious or outside the parameters of the law. In a certain occasion:

Matthew 5:17-25

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus was able to straddle beautifully the boundaries of old testament law with the present cultural and legals issues of His day.

If we are presented with a tragedy and victims are suffering, do we rescue them if it happens on the Sabbath, or do we turn away like the priest and the Levite during their travels when faced with a half-dead robbery victim?. If we are faced with two candidates, both who we deem unsuitable to represent and preside over our nation, which do we vote for? Hopefully, he should abide by the most important commandments and things that are dear to God’s heart. We know God said not to kill. Does the presidential candidate support abortion and the man and woman as a married couple? Last but not least does He bless Israel?

Since the dawn of Adam and Eve have we looked for loopholes to avoid the responsibilities God has assigned us. But God will hold us accountable to every minute thought, action and deed. If we choose not to vote, we have still made a decision to stand for nothing.

“For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass
away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until
all is accomplished.Jesus said in Mat 5:18

I pray Pastors will be like Ezra and Nehemiah, bringing out the law to remind the people of God’s promises and covenant. Jehoshaphat also gathered the assembly and revival was renewed under his kingship. When the law is revived and taught and pastors teach their flock how to balance the law with grace, we will enjoy the blessings of Yahweh. Whenever the Israelites were enslaved and abused by the heathen who dominated them and they cried out to God for deliverance, God sent them a king after his own heart. If Gods’ people, the church continue to allow liberals and atheists to edit our Constitution and Bill of Rights and remove God’s name from our public buildings, God will remove His hedge of protection. We should not be surprised at terrorist attacks when we ask God to remove himself from our democracy!

Last night, I was reminded of America’s fallen legacy as I watched documentaries of the destruction of the World Trade Centers on History Channel. What a tragedy and what a harsh lesson we Americans should have learned. This was a harbinger of what happens to a society that disobeys and rebels against God. Let us come to our senses and know that God’s commandments are for our protection and blessing. Without them, there would be anarchy, chaos, murder and slavery.

People, wake up! Let wisdom and humility towards God rule your lives and the decisions you make for the upcoming elections. Pastors, Rabbis and priests, be bold and uncompromising as you share God’s heart and assist your flock to choose the leaders closest to God’s ideal…and God help America as she struggles to get back on track.
