As I have met and fellowshipped with various first nations elders and pastors this year, I am reminded of a recurring theme I have heard from them, as we discussed broken treaties between their tribes, and the US government.
When I asked them how they felt over the US government voiding the Iroquois confederacy, or various treaties, I have heard statements like:,
‘Who says the Iroquois confederacy is out of date, we still govern our people by it. The US government may not recognize it but we still live by it’
Or how about the broken treaties I have asked:
‘Repeatedly I have heard, ‘Sure, the government broke their side of the treaty, but WE NEVER BROKE OUR SIDE’
This confirms what I am hearing from heaven, that God is holding the US accountable for its treatment of the North American Indian tribes, and visiting, blessing, and restoring many, many tribal nations with great favor, signs, wonders and miracles, in a movement I have called #RedManRising
Today, in my morning Bible reading with the Children, I read the following verse, that really spoke to me:
Ne 3:7 And next unto them repaired Melatiah the Gibeonite, and Jadon the Meronothite, the men of Gibeon, and of Mizpah, unto the throne of the governor on this side the river.
In this case, after king David was long gone from the earth, we see the children of Israel rebuilding the city of Jerusalem under the leadership of Nehemiah and Ezra the priest, and the Gibeonites, were still faithfully keeping their side of their covenant with God’s chosen people…
Holy Spirit really spoke to me of the possibility of a beautiful tapestry of partnership, where Indian tribes can come alongside us as equals, and together we can still build something beautiful in this great land of the free and home of the brave…Jesus is still the answer, the way, and as Almighty God, He is still the waymaker when there is no way.
All things are possible to him or her that believes…
Let’s make the impossible mess in America currently, a wonderful testimony to the faithfulness of Jesus to this great land…as Bonnke shouts: ‘America shall be saved!”
‘Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, Master of the Universe, we need You! You who flung the stars into being, are well able to fix, recreate, and heal this land we call America. We ask, and cry out once again for You to do it! We ask, knowing that we are heard and answered, because we come in Your mighty and matchless name Lord Jesus, Amen!”
