Friends, I am excited about the journey we are taking, courtesy of Pastor Jack Hibbs (Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, CA). Recently, he led 150 of his congregants on a tour of Washington DC and other historic sites relevant to America’s founding. Not only is Pastor Jack spot on with American history in these videos, but he is spot on scripturally, and his onsite messages fit perfectly with our focus on Occupy Till I Come.
Jesus gave that instruction in a parable, teaching us to take care of the Master’s business until He returns for us! Sadly, in America, we seem to be more occupied than occupying! It’s time for believers to take back the founding of our country and proclaim “Jesus is Lord” in our lives, our families, our churches and our government! Understanding how America was founded is critical in knowing how American Christians are to occupy till Jesus comes! So, that’s what we’re about for the days ahead!
Today, though, is a 2-for-1 day! The videos are short, but very powerful? Are you ready….
Sadly, the oppression of our government is vivid these days in Washington DC. One needs only to look at our Capitol Building to see that. However, our Defender is Jesus! Oppression or no oppression, we do not have to fear! Take a look:
Dear friends, oppression doesn’t win over us! We are occupiers and do not have to fear being occupied by evil forces! However, it is our duty to stand against oppression in prayer! Here is a fabulous opportunity! Will you join Pastor Jack in his prayer over our Capitol Building? Let’s use this as a model prayer as we pray for our elected officials in Washington DC.
It is important to understand, those evil forces are not people! They are not our elected officials. Evil forces are the rulers, powers, world forces of this darkness, and spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places described in Ephesians 6:12. Satan and his demons oppress many of our elected officials. Pray for them!
If you missed Pastor Jack’s first video from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, it was the theme of yesterday’s post, so take a few minutes and check it out.
