The Warrior Heart of God

warrior lord

Well, all you men and women of God, and militant church, this is a side of God, you’ve been waiting for me to teach.

The Warrior Heart of God

 

His name is Lord Sabboeth, God of armies, Lord of Hosts.

 

1 Timothy 6:12  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,

 

2 Corinthians 10:3  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

 

4  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

 

Let’s take a look at a verse in Joshua 23:8-10

 

(Josh 23:8 NIV)  But you are to hold fast to the LORD your God, as you have until now.

 

(Josh 23:9 NIV)  “The LORD has driven out before you great and powerful nations; to this day no one has been able to withstand you.

 

(Josh 23:10 NIV)  One of you routs a thousand, because the LORD your God fights for you, just as he promised.

warrior our God

 

We see God Himself fighting for his people throughout the Old Testament.  As your Father, He will fight for you, His child.

 

Let’s look at a few more:

 

In this account, we find Joshua marching into the Promised Land. Four armies joined together having decided to wipe out the armies of Israel, the princes of God, the army of the living God. Let’s pick it up here in:

 

(Josh 10:8 NIV)  The LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to withstand you.”

 

Notice this: if you’re facing a fight, you’d better get a strategy from heaven before you engage. David was undefeated in battle, every time He sought God for a battle plan he won. When he went out in his own strength, he lost. So, you spiritual Rambo’s about blast devils and move mountains in this generation, hear this: Learn to be led by the spirit of God! If you don’t, you may find like I have, pain has been a wonderful instructor.

Hebrews 5:8  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

 

(Josh 10:9 NIV)  After an all-night march from Gilgal, Joshua took them by surprise.

 

How did he know to march all night? Prayer. He obeyed God.

 

(Josh 10:10 NIV)  The LORD threw them into confusion before Israel, who defeated them in a great victory at Gibeon. Israel pursued them along the road going up to Beth Horon and cut them down all the way to Azekah and Makkedah.

 

Who threw them into confusion? The Lord! Our mighty warrior!

 

(Josh 10:11 NIV)  As they fled before Israel on the road down from Beth Horon to Azekah, the LORD hurled large hailstones down on them from the sky, and more of them died from the hailstones than were killed by the swords of the Israelites.

 

Again and again, we see God act on behalf of his advancing army. Destroying our enemies, making them our footstool.

(Josh 10:12 NIV)  On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: “O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.”

 

(Josh 10:13 NIV)  So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

 

(Josh 10:14 NIV)  There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a man. Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel!

 warrior sun stand still

Look at these verses! That the authority God has invested in us, His church operating in the earth. When we get full of the Holy Spirit, and begin to operate in greater obedience, God can release in us, greater anointing. You recall how God did a similar miracle here in the summer of 98. For six weeks we held outdoor meetings, and each week as we set-up, it rained. Yet, by faith, we set-up our sound system anyway, set ourselves in agreement, and decreed in the authority of God, “Rain, we command you to stop, sun come out, wind stop, that the gospel be preached here.” Instantly, the rain stopped, the wind died down and gently blew the clouds out of the way, and the sun shone down producing a wonderful, warm atmosphere where we had some great meetings.

 

Well, how did Joshua do this? He had to see himself in the word of God. Faith hasn’t changed; it still comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. So, what word did Joshua base his faith upon? All he had was the first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch, and the Law of Moses. Could he have read?

 

(Deu 1:30 NIV)  The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,

warrior lightening

Or perhaps:

 

(Deu 28:7 NIV)  The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

warrior 7 ways

 

Obedience produced boldness. There are great blessings in obedience.

 

Isaiah 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

 

Ok, we see this again and again in the Old Testament.

 

Gideon, who with 300 men defeated over a hundred thousand, when God fought for him. Hezekiah. I like the story of Hezekiah, a picture of God’s mercy and love. You can read it in  2 Kings chapters 18-20, and again in Isaiah 36 and 37. Basically, an army came against Israel, and well,

 

God said:

 

(Isa 37:35 NIV)  “I will defend this city and save it, for my sake and for the sake of David my servant!”

 

(Isa 37:36 NIV)  Then the angel of the LORD went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning–there were all the dead bodies!

 

So, pastor Chris, why are you telling us about all  people God killed. God loves us right? Yes, but He hates evil. I hear these carnal Christians set in their sin, years after accepting Christ, pleading “the blood, the blood/” over their sin. Yes, for all of you here. That’s some good word to put in your heart and  mouth. Also, the imparted righteousness that’s yours as a blood-bought child of the king. These truths, studied and acted upon will guarantee  you’ll never have to face what I’m about to say.

 

There comes a time, when we know better to do a thing, yet we insist on doing it anyway, for years.  Satan makes sure God hears about it, he goes before God as the accuser of the brethren, determined to kill you when you make a mistake. The wages of sin are still death, and he’s a murderer. .At that point, God Himself determines to deal with the issue, whether you want to or not. When that day comes, people either let God break them, and go free, or they die.

 

Matthew 21:44  And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

‘There should be those among whom we can sit and weep and still be counted as warriors’. Native American Proverb Photo by Rory Cripps

Proverbs 29:1 ¶ He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

We see this again in Joshua Chapter 5: 13 ¶ And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

14  And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

15 And the captain of the LORD’S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

God in charge

Some Bible scholars have called this a theophonay, a preincarnate appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ. Whether an angel or the Lord Jesus Christ Himself we don’t know, but the point is this as leaders. We are but representatives of the great king. No matter how many gifts, how much authority He gives us, He is Lord. When He begins to act in our lives, we need to do like Joshua, and bow, fall on our face, worship, and then obey.

 

Since the heart of Jesus is mercy, I honestly believe they go to heaven, for  Jesus speaking says:

 

(Rev 1:18 NIV)  I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

 

God is love. So if He has a choice of sending on of His children to hell, or allowing them to die, he lets them die. In light of eternity, this is a small thing, even though down here, it’s sure hard on families and friends. People leave a big hole when they are gone.

As we learn to fight the fight of faith later in this life, I will teach you to wield the word of God as Jesus did, effectively thwarting the devils attacks with “It is written!” and establishing God’s kingdom through faith-filled words.

 

Ok, enough heavy-revvy. Let’s see the Warrior Heart of  Father God at work in the ministry of our Lord Jesus. Let’s look at the account of the death of John the Baptist,  Jesus pastor, and best friend in the earth.

 

(Mark 6:14 NIV)  King Herod heard about this, for Jesus’ name had become well known. Some were saying, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.”

 

(Mark 6:15 NIV)  Others said, “He is Elijah.” And still others claimed, “He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of long ago.”

 

(Mark 6:16 NIV)  But when Herod heard this, he said, “John, the man I beheaded, has been raised from the dead!”

 

(Mark 6:17 NIV)  For Herod himself had given orders to have John arrested, and he had him bound and put in prison. He did this because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, whom he had married.

 

(Mark 6:18 NIV)  For John had been saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”

 

Hear this, truth will make strong-willed people angry.  Yet, the Bible also says that the fear of man brings a snare. If you are going to succeed in life, you need to decide right up front, to be a God-pleaser rather than a man-pleaser.

 

(Mark 6:19 NIV)  So Herodias nursed a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she was not able to,

 

(Mark 6:20 NIV)  because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled ; yet he liked to listen to him.

 

(Mark 6:21 NIV)  Finally the opportune time came. On his birthday Herod gave a banquet for his high officials and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee.

 

(Mark 6:22 NIV)  When the daughter of Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his dinner guests. The king said to the girl, “Ask me for anything you want, and I’ll give it to you.”

 

(Mark 6:23 NIV)  And he promised her with an oath, “Whatever you ask I will give you, up to half my kingdom.”

 

See this? Any of you Bible scholars remember these words from another place in Scripture?

 

(Est 5:3 NIV)  Then the king asked, “What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be given you.”

 

See what happened here? Years before, one little queen went before a righteous king, taking her life in her hands, on behalf of her people, the people of God. This king heard her, and through this event, God moved and delivered His people. Now, we have another queen, with murder and political intrigue in her heart, appearing before a drunken tyrant. Satan or one of his demons inspired the whole thing, trying to stop the word of God out of the mouth of John from being spoken in the earth. He was successful, and the blind, drunken king yielded to his concubine, and had the man of God, murdered.

 

(Mark 6:24 NIV)  She went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” “The head of John the Baptist,” she answered.

 

(Mark 6:25 NIV)  At once the girl hurried in to the king with the request: “I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”

 

(Mark 6:26 NIV)  The king was greatly distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he did not want to refuse her.

 

(Mark 6:27 NIV)  So he immediately sent an executioner with orders to bring John’s head. The man went, beheaded John in the prison,

 

(Mark 6:28 NIV)  and brought back his head on a platter. He presented it to the girl, and she gave it to her mother.

 

(Mark 6:29 NIV)  On hearing of this, John’s disciples came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.

 

Notice, the response of John’s disciples: they went and told Jesus. When horrible things happen, that’s good advice. You too need to ‘go and tell Jesus’.

 

(Mark 6:30 NIV)  The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.

 

(Mark 6:31 NIV)  Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

 

Obviously, the death of John hurt Jesus deeper than any of us can comprehend. John was perhaps the only man on the face of the planet who truly knew who Jesus was. Jesus decided, enough is an enough, I need a break, and so do you, so He headed out to the desert, away from the crowds.

 

(Mark 6:32 NIV)  So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.

 

(Mark 6:33 NIV)  But many that saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them.

 

(Mark 6:34 NIV)  When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many

things.

 

Remember, Jesus only did the will of the Father, right? See here. We know the blood of Jesus has a voice in the heavens and the earth, a voice greater than Abel.

 

(Heb 12:24 NIV)  to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

 

So it was with the blood of John the Baptist. When John’s head was cut from his body, his spirit went to paradise, or Abraham’s bosom. Yet his blood was spilled, and it too had a voice, that ascended through the heavens to cry ‘justice’ before the very throne of God, our Father, judge of all the universe. Our Father, Lord Sabboeth, heard that cry, and saw the blasphemy of Satan against Himself, and immediately He acted. One of his servants had died, but there was another son in the earth, and He moved His hand against the kingdom of darkness.

 

NIV is not strong enough here. KJV reads And Jesus,  moved with compassion towards them.

 

See it, Jesus moved with compassion, began to preach the gospel, heal the sick, and cast out devils, hitting Satan where it hurts. Taking back from him souls of men. Our Father is a warrior who fights for the oppressed.

 

(Mark 6:35 NIV)  By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late.

 

(Mark 6:36 NIV)  Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.”

 

(Mark 6:37 NIV)  But he answered, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “That would take eight months of a man’s wages ! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?”

 

(Mark 6:38 NIV)  “How many loaves do you have?” he asked. “Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five–and two fish.”

 

(Mark 6:39 NIV)  Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass.

 

(Mark 6:40 NIV)  So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties.

 

(Mark 6:41 NIV)  Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.

 

(Mark 6:42 NIV)  They all ate and were satisfied,

 

Well, for now, God has people like me and Karen exercising His authority on your behalf, but know this. You too, are called to be a deliverer in the earth. God sees you in this chair, and sees souls in your future yet to be reached with the gospel.

 

1 John 3:8

 

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

raze

You too are a son or daughter of God. God is growing you up so that the gift and calling of God upon your life will manifest, so that you can boldly say: For this purpose is this son of God manisfest, to destroy the works of the devil. What are the devils works? Lies, false religion, sickness, sin, and all that goes with it.

 

There is an upward call of God on your life, a destiny to be fulfilled, a glorious future set before you. You are a miracle going somewhere to happen. A history maker, a nation shaker, full of mountain-moving, devil stomping faith.

 

(Rom 8:29 NIV)  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

 

Jesus is our big brother, as well as our Lord, but hear the words of the apostle Paul, a man who wrote two-thirds of the New Testament.

 

(Phil 3:13 NIV)  Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

 

(Phil 3:14 NIV)  I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

 

Get in the press, stay in the press, follow hard after God, and don’t look back. In light of eternity, there’s nothing else worth living for!

  1. Read about Hezekiah in 2 Kings Chapters 18, through 20, Isaiah 36 and 37.

 

  1. What is the most important lesson we can learn from His life?

 

Answer: He knew his covenant with God! Mercy triumphed over judgement because of the knowledge of his covenant with God, the covenant God made to Israel through David.

 

  1. Do you have enemies? Pray this:

Father, I thank you for fighting for, and defending me. It is written:

Isaiah 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

 

I believe this and receive it as my heritage, in Jesus name, AMEN.

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

 

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!

 

 

Obedience – Whatever HE says, DO IT!

obey whatever He says

Obedience: Whatever He says: Do it!

obedience (2)

I’ve read that when Edward VI, the king of England in the 16th century, attended a worship service, he stood while the Word of God was read. He took notes during this time and later studied them with great care. Through the week he earnestly tried to apply them to his life. That’s the kind of serious-minded response to truth the apostle James calls for in today’s Scripture reading. A single revealed fact cherished in the heart and acted upon is more vital to our growth than a head filled with lofty ideas about God.

One step forward in obedience is worth years of study about it.

Chambers, Our Daily Bread, March 4, 1993

It’s always a question of Lordship, is Jesus truly in charge of your heart and decisions?

Are we seeking Him first?

It is easy to say Jesus is Lord of our decisions, when we are alone with Him in prayer, but challenges will come!

John Kenneth Galbraith, in his autobiography, A Life in Our Times, illustrates the devotion of Emily Gloria Wilson, his family’s housekeeper:

It had been a wearying day, and I asked Emily to hold all telephone calls while I had a nap. Shortly thereafter the phone rang. Lyndon Johnson was calling from the White House.

“Get me Ken Galbraith. This is Lyndon Johnson.”

“He is sleeping, Mr. President. He said not to disturb him.”

“Well, wake him up. I want to talk to him.”

“No, Mr. President. I work for him, not you. When I called the President back, he could scarcely control his pleasure. “Tell that woman I want her here in the White House.”

“It is not the importance of the thing, but the majesty of the Lawgiver, that is to be the standard of obedience…Some, indeed, might reckon such minute and arbitrary rules as these as trifling. But the principle involved in obedience or disobedience was none other than the same principle which was tried in Eden at the foot of the forbidden tree. It is really this: Is the Lord to be obeyed in all things whatsoever He commands? Is He a holy Lawgiver? Are His creatures bound to give implicit assent to His will?”

Andrew Bonar, referring to the laws found in Leviticus, quoted in J. Bridges, The Pursuit of Holiness,   p. 23.

Imagine, if you will, that you work for a company whose president found it necessary to travel out of the country and spend an extended period of time abroad. So he says to you and the other trusted employees, “Look, I’m going to leave. And while I’m gone, I want you to pay close attention to the business. You manage things while I’m away. I will write you regularly. When I do, I will instruct you in what you should do from now until I return from this trip.” Everyone agrees.

He leaves and stays gone for a couple of years. During that time he writes often, communicating his desires and concerns. Finally he returns. He walks up to the front door of the company and immediately discovers everything is in a mess–weeds flourishing in the flower beds, windows broken across the front of the building, the gal at the front desk dozing, loud music roaring from several offices, two or three people engaged in horseplay in the back room. Instead of making a profit, the business has suffered a great loss. Without hesitation he calls everyone together and with a frown asks, “What happened? Didn’t you get my letters?”

You say, “Oh, yeah, sure. We got all your letters. We’ve even bound them in a book. And some of us have memorized them. In fact, we have ‘letter study’ every Sunday. You know, those were really great letters.” I think the president would then ask, “But what did you do about my instructions?” And, no doubt the employees would respond, “Do? Well, nothing. But we read every one!”

Righteousness Exalts a Nation

heal-our-land3

This message has not changed over the years, because Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever. He is the Prince of Peace, and if we want peace in our land, we must submit to His Lordship, for His kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!

Proverbs 14:34  Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

Proverbs 11:10  When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

Proverbs 29:2  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

Psalms 9:8  And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

Psalms 11:7  For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

Psalms 23:3  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Psalms 96:13  Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

Proverbs 2:9  Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

Today, I want to speak about the righteousness of God. Righteousness meaning ‘right standing with God’

First, as a New Testament believer, we need to understand the difference between positional righteousness, and practical righteousness.

Positional righteousness is the righteousness that every Christian has before the throne of God. We believe in Jesus, that He came, God in the flesh, that He lived a sinless and victorious life here in the earth, performing miracles throughout His earthly ministry, that He died upon the cross as the only acceptable substitute for our sins, that He rose from the grave on the third day and ascended bodily into heaven where He now reigns, as King of King and Lord of Lords.

Positionally, we were all lost, but because we placed out faith in Him, He adopted us into the family of God, and gave us a new identity.

Ephesians 1:20  Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

Ephesians 2:6  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

You are a child of promise, and heir of God. Your life has purpose and destiny upon it. You are no longer a bastard, a slave or an orphan, you are not a mistake, but are a child of the king, training for ruling and reigning in Him throughout eternity. You are the church, a member of the Body of Christ, a warrior in God’s army, called to occupy this earth until He comes again. You have been given authority over death, demons, and disease, and are no longer your own, but have been bought with a price, and live under His command. He has commanded us to Go! Into  all the world in His strength and authority and to bring it under His Lordship and authority. Today we are going to do some of that.

Revelation 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Revelation 1:6  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Practically, many of us are in one of two camps; we either don’t fully know what God has for us to do for Him, and so are growing in Him, becoming rooted and grounded in His love, seeking His will and Word in all things. Yet, some have flat out gone AWOL. We have long ago forgot that ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteous is the primary commandment in the Bible, loving God first, takes precedence over serving Him. There is no morning watch and prayer vigil in our homes, the family alter has long ago fallen away, destroyed and decrepit from disuse, and then the long weary walk of works has begun, living life in a dry and weary land where there is no water. We raise our children, we busy ourselves in our churches, we work hard to provide for our families, but we have lost our first love, the Lord of glory. I know, even as a pastor, my ministerial responsibilities have often crept into my life for long seasons, where I have literally dried up spiritually, and delivered sermons devoid of passion and power. I have fed God’s people stale bread, from years of Bible study, that ministers only to the intellect of man, not his spirit. I had to fall back upon the Rock, and be broken. I had to put aside every earthly distraction, to again seek the face of God, that I might deliver to His people living waters from His throne, words of Spirit and truth, again a voice for the Lord, not merely an echo.

Today, we will have good old fashioned alter time to come back to that, and the Lord will meet you there, for He has sent me.

Yet I must speak today of practical righteousness. Practical righteousness for a Christian, is walking in love. You have been made to sit together with Christ in heavenly places. You have been given a high place in the Spirit of God. We used to attend a men’s breakfast monthly up in Canada hosted by a group of Christian businessmen, that understood the honour of God. They rented a Penthouse ballroom each month, in one of the best hotels in town, and did it right.

The Penthouse in on top of the building. It’s a high place. Practical righteousness means to repent. That is, come back to your high place in God. Leave behind the filthy things of your flesh and this world, and come back you royal child to your position of honour and holiness before Him.

The Pentagon, is also a high place. Every person working in the government of this great nation is called of God, to live and do righteousness, for God is holy!

If we love and serve Jesus, we truly do have friends in high places, higher than any earthly relationship….He must become our best friend, so that we serve and obey Him, seeking His counsel on the complexities of life, more than all the counsel of man. Used to be the US Congress began their day with the first three hours devoted to prayer…

Quickly, I’ll give you a couple of thoughts on sin, and will give the Holy Spirit something to work with in this message, because I’m a man on a mission. These are critical days, and I’m fixin to change a nation, and ultimately the nations of the earth, based upon what happens to you as you hear this word.

Forgive. No time to play with this one. God says if you don’t forgive people that have done you wrong He won’t forgive you. Do it now. You will never feel like it, for the pain and offense are real. Do it because the Word says so, as an act of your will. You are commanded to forgive and love people, but you do not have to trust everyone. If someone did you wrong, you must forgive them. Until they exhibit fruits in keeping with repentance, you are not required to reconcile with them, sin separates, but love covers a multitude of sins. You must forgive, and love.

Now let’s look at a few more sins.

Gal 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

  • If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

I had to do a little house cleaning before I could take you into where God wants us to go in this service.

You see, there is power in sacrifice. God is Almighty, and there is no greater power in heaven and earth, than the power of the blood of Jesus.

Rev 2:18 ¶ And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

19  I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20  Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

22  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

23  And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

24  But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

  • And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

God wants to give His church power over the nations, but we need to grow into it, by overcoming the obstacles Satan has arrayed against us. Overcoming takes raw courage, good old fashioned guts, because there are many people that do not love truth, nor are they willing to walk in honor, honesty, and the fear of the Lord. They will oppose you…

1 Peter 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Galatians 3:29  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

4:1 ¶ Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

2  But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

You don’t give a child an atomic bomb. We are the bride of Christ, and look at this:

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

If you want to see your life influence the nations of the earth, or this nation used of God in the nations of the earth, we must keep growing in Jesus and in the Word of God. As we do, His rule and righteous reign, the absolute highest good of all mankind, will flow through us and this nation.

Matthew 10:27  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

We are the bride of Christ. When we approach God in intimacy, and symbolically place out head upon Jesus shoulder, He whispers secrets into our spirit. He tells us that these things are to be proclaimed from the rooftops.

Why? Because Jesus has all authority in heaven and earth, and He grants that authority to His church. He will back up His Word with signs following, and even angels wait for the hearing of God’s Word in the earth.

Psalms 103:20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalms 104:4  Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

The government of God must flow through you! You are the ones supposed to be uttering this decree, as you abide in Him.

27  Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.

Job 22:28  Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

Acts 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18  And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

  • And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Isaiah 8:18  Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

We seek Him. God pours out His Spirit. Holy Spirit tells us things God wants to do in the earth. We proclaim these things, and literally declare the decrees of God. God backs up His Word with power, and signs and wonders occur in the earth.

So when God wants to prune an earthly government, He reveals His will to five-fold ministry gifts in the earth. They declare His decrees. God moves upon His Word, and stuff happens.

Amos 3:7  Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Isaiah 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jeremiah 1:10  See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

Matthew 4:8  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

What did Satan show Jesus? I believe he showed him his rulership over nations, in the realm of the spirit. Territorial principalities of darkness ruling under his domain. Demons, that rule the minds of men, for satan is a mind blinding spirit.

Hebrews 11:3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

We are to take the Word of God, and subdue this world through prayer and the preaching of God’s Word until:

Revelation 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the  kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

We do this through what we believe and speak.

Hebrews 11:33  Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

Today, God is going to use us for signs and wonders in the earth. We are going to move in things of eternal consequence, for His glory.

There is power in sacrifice. Satan knows this. When you study out pagan religions, part of the worship of Baal and Astoreth and Molech in the Old Testament involved human sacrifice. Demon worshippers, literally offered their children upon alters of demonic sacrifice, a practice God expressly forbid.

Leviticus 18:21  And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Jesus holds the keys to death and hell. Every life in the earth is given by God, by divine decree. When blood is shed unrighteously, it cries out to the throne of God.

For those of you who have read or heard my teaching on ‘Redeeming the Land’ or have had me come to your property, and pray to redeem it, you have learned that this is not merely great preaching, but practical reality.

Gal 4:9 ¶ And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?

  • And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Rev 6:9 ¶ And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

When a person dies. His spirit appears before the throne of God. God sees, and He judges.

Luke 11:51  From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

So, Satan understands the power of unjust blood shed, and seeks to destroy nations who shed it, to provoke God to wrath. The thief comes to kill…

2 Kings 3:

Gives us an account that I believe has powerful application today. We see a divided kingdom, Israel ruled by a wicked king named Jehoram. Judah ruled by a godly king named Jehoshaphat. Jehoram had been raised by an evil father Ahab. Ahab.had ruled over the Samaritians and taxed them heavily. When he died, they rebelled, and Jehoram found himself without God, at war. So he did what many still do today, He tried to find someone to fight with him.

¶ Now Jehoram the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned twelve years.

2  And he wrought evil in the sight of the LORD; but not like his father, and like his mother: for he put away the image of Baal that his father had made.

3  Nevertheless he cleaved unto the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.

4  And Mesha king of Moab was a sheepmaster, and rendered unto the king of Israel an hundred thousand lambs, and an hundred thousand rams, with the wool.

5  But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.

6 ¶ And king Jehoram went out of Samaria the same time, and numbered all Israel.

7  And he went and sent to Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab hath rebelled against me: wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up: I am as thou art, my people as thy people, and my horses as thy horses.

8  And he said, Which way shall we go up? And he answered, The way through the wilderness of Edom.

9  So the king of Israel went, and the king of Judah, and the king of Edom: and they fetched a compass of seven days’ journey: and there was no water for the host, and for the cattle that followed them.

10  And the king of Israel said, Alas! that the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab!

  • But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD, that we may enquire of the LORD by him? And one of the king of Israel’s servants answered and said, Here is Elisha the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah.

Jehoshaphat seeks God, and finds a prophet, the mighty man of God Elisha, the successor to Elijah.

12  And Jehoshaphat said, The word of the LORD is with him. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.

13  And Elisha said unto the king of Israel, What have I to do with thee? get thee to the prophets of thy father, and to the prophets of thy mother. And the king of Israel said unto him, Nay: for the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab.

14  And Elisha said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee.

15  But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.

16  And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Make this valley full of ditches.

17  For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

18  And this is but a light thing in the sight of the LORD: he will deliver the Moabites also into your hand.

19  And ye shall smite every fenced city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all wells of water, and mar every good piece of land with stones.

20 ¶ And it came to pass in the morning, when the meat offering was offered, that, behold, there came water by the way of Edom, and the country was filled with water.

21  And when all the Moabites heard that the kings were come up to fight against them, they gathered all that were able to put on armour, and upward, and stood in the border.

22  And they rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, and the Moabites saw the water on the other side as red as blood:

23  And they said, This is blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil.

24  And when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and smote the Moabites, so that they fled before them: but they went forward smiting the Moabites, even in their country.

25  And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it; and they stopped all the wells of water, and felled all the good trees: only in Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof; howbeit the slingers went about it, and smote it.

  • And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not.
  • Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.

So he killed his son, a shadow and type of how God offered up His son as a sacrifice, and the blood of that sacrifice so empowered the demon principality that the Moabites served that the army was empowered to drive back the compromised army of God.

We see again and again in the Scripture that when the people of God walked with God, in practical righteousness, and enemies rose up, God gave a battle plan, and the nation was undefeated. A holy people in the hands of an Almighty God, is undeafeatable, unstoppable in battle.

So, abortion, the killing of an unborn child, no matter how it is rationalized in the mind of people, is a literal blood sacrifice being offered up to demon spirits.

Why to world leaders attend meetings at Bohemian Grove, for the yearly ‘Festival of Fire’? Some think it is simply a political move, but it is not: it is a ceremony where demons spirits are actually worshipped…in exchange for political power and authority.

2Co 10:6  And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Obedience produced God’s power, and still does today. Ac 5:32  And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Remember? The Egyptians chased Moses at the Red Sea, God parted the waters, and then God caused the water to drown the Egyptian army.

Exodus 17:10  So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

You know he story. Moses lifted his rod, and the armies of heaven marched against the legions of hell in the realm of the spirit, and Israel prevailed in battle. When Moses got tired, and let the rod of God fall, the devils empowering the Amalekites surged, and the heavenly host withdrew, and the armies of Israel struggled. With Aaron and Hur’s undergirding, Moses was able to keep the rod of God upheld, and Israel won the victory over her enemies.

So it was during the war in Iraq. As the church interceded and spiritually held up the arms of President Bush and the US and allied armed forces, we saw victory.

I said, by the spirit of God, during that war:

“If  we let down our guard and become apathetic and prayerless, Al Queda recruits and plots, it’s plans are not revealed to military sources by the Spirit of God, the host of heaven is not empowered to work, and soldiers die, and our borders are not safe.”

I can give many stories. When Joshua marched against Jericho under God’s authority and commands, the walls fell, and Israel prevailed. Whe we read the account in Joshua chapter 7, where Achan sinned, and stole the cursed things, his sin literally punched a hole in the dome of God’s supernatural protection over Israel. Israel went to battle against Ai, and were defeated. Soldiers died. Joshua prayed. God did not say, “Achan sinned” rather He said “Israel has sinned”. Achan’s disobedience in wartime opened the door for demonic penetration of the spiritual covering over the nation of Israel, and Israel was defeated in battle. Achan was discovered and capital punishment was executed. Israel was undefeated in it’s next military exploits.

There is much I can say about this, but this is enough, for now.

2 Sam 5:

22  And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.

23  And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.

  • And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.

What happened here in battle? David sought God for a battle plan. God gave him one, that involved the host of heaven. David was to wait until the angels of God marched against the demons that the Philistines served, then go to battle. He did, God did, and again Israel was victorious. Notice again, that David was serving God with his whole heart, no compromise.

We see this again, recorded for us from the life of the prophet Elisha:

2 Kings 6:15  And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots . And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?

16  And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

  • And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

Same thing. One man with God, in touch with heaven, operating under the authority of heaven allowed the armies of God to prevail against the host of hell, and the people of God to be delivered.

My question to you is this: Will you be that man or woman of God?

After we repent of our personal sins, and again begin to seek God, there are specific battle plans to be revealed from heaven that will cause the church and the gospel to be victorious in this generation.

Here’s what I see at present in the earth.  The purposes of God in the earth are at stake again, as the destiny of God for the United States hangs in the balance.

So, what are we to pray for this nation?

  1. That the blood of Jesus be applied to the blood of the sacrifice Satan has raised up through abortion.
  2. That God give a revelation to judges, and purge the judicial system. That this revelation be given to the public, and those in the medical profession of the spiritual significance of this horror.
  3. That President Obama repent. That he sell out for Jesus and the kingdom of God, and renounce his compromise with Islam, abortion, and same sex marriage and make unholy alliances with agencies within the United States, (ACLU, Islam, the Bohemian grove bunch, and every pro-abortion, or homosexual group) and that God remove from positions of authority those leaders across this land that do.
  4. That the church recognize racism for what it is, an enemy to be destroyed in prayer. It is a spiritual force, that must be blasted in prayer, not just social action.
  5. That the church aggressively pray for North American Indian tribes, the host peoples of this land. The broken treaties, and innocent bloodshed of these people are screaming before the throne of God, and ONLY the church can fix this through the blood of Jesus.

Mt 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Lu 16:13  No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Mammon is simply a term to describe the worldly system, and it is clear that demonic principalities operate through it. You cannot serve Jesus, claim to know Him, then publically do exactly the opposit His Word prescribes.

Joh 14:15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Joh 14:21  He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

  1. That the church take her place in this spiritual war and that Islamic infiltration into the US, be removed. That terrorist organizations be exposed, dismantled, and removed. That Muslims, would be converted, en masse, both here in the US, and internationally. The Bible is a book of holiness and love. The Quran is a book of atrocities and hate. There will never be a mix of the two in heaven, nor can there be in the earth.
    1. That God protection be restored in this nation. That terrorist plots be exposed and stopped before they are carried out.
  2. That Federal judges or politicians across this land who have been pro-abortion repent, now, or be removed from office.
  3. The US publically again stand with Israel.
  4. That prayer and the Bible again return to schools.
  5. That Christians again sell out totally for Jesus, and begin to seek first your kingdom, hear your voice, share the gospel, and attend and build strong local churches across the US.
  6. That the Media proclaim the gospel.
  7. That hidden things be brought to light, and those things against the Word of God and the spirit of the US constitution be removed.
  8. That again this great nation bow it’s knee to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Get in agreement church and declare these things in your authority and agreement, and watch God move His hand in revival across the earth again.

Lets pray:

Let’s Pray:

  1. Father, we ask for mercy, once again, for the horrendous slaughter of our unborn children. Forgive them Father for their murder, and open their eyes to the carnage they create. Reveal Jesus to them. By faith, in your authority, I plead and apply the blood of Jesus over the blood of abortion, and command ever evil spirit operating there, to leave this nation, now, in the name and authority of Jesus.
  1. Father, I pray for President Barack Obama. Thank you for his stand against racism in this nation. Please use him to provide equity and equal opportunity to black Americans, and First Nations peoples.

Forgive him Father, have mercy upon him, and open his eyes to see Jesus, and to bow to His Lordship. To cut every tie with Islam, abortion, homosexuality, and every treacherous group, determined to undermine and destroy the United States, the freedom that you have given us, liberty to walk in love, honor, and honesty, and justice for all men. I pray for every member of government, in both the executive, judicial, and legislative branch, every cival authority, Federally and in every state, that they choose Jesus and the Word of God, in every area of their leadership, and that they use all of their abilities, authority, and influence to promote the kingdom of God in the earth.

  1. By faith, I stand against Islam in America. I bind, forbid, and stop every evil spirit operating through this, and command all deception to leave, now. I bring the sword of the spirit to all compromise with Islam, and pray for every Muslim, that you would reveal to them the love of Jesus, and the truth that sets free in the gospel. I bind the fear of death that controls them, and set them free to be the people of love, honor, honesty and truth you have called them to be, in Jesus name.
  2. Father, Today is the day of salvation, your name is I AM. I declare and decree that every politician, judge, or government official that has joined itself to abortion, homosexuality, or Islam, be removed from office, and that God fearing persons be put in their place, today, in Jesus name.Amen
  3. Father, I ask that The US publically again stand with Israel, in spirit and in truth, and would stop supporting her enemies, today, that you might again bless this nation.
  4. Father we ask: “That prayer and the Bible again return to schools.”, in Jesus name!
  1. Father we ask, “That Christians again sell out totally for Jesus, and begin to seek first your kingdom, hear your voice, share the gospel, and attend and build strong local churches across the US.
  1. Father, by faith, I command the Media proclaim the gospel, and be cleansed from all perversion, filth, and evil, in Jesus name.

 

  1. Father I ask, that hidden things be brought to light, and those things against the Word of God and the spirit of the US constitution be removed from this nation, in Jesus name, Amen.
  • Father, bring this great nation back to you, that again this great nation bow it’s knee to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. AMEN!

Praying for America Hidden things to be revealed.

Isa 45:3  And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Isa 48:6  Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

1Co 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

1Co 4:5  Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

2Co 4:2  But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

As we proceed toward National Day of Prayer on Thursday, these are the verses I feel impressed to pray:

That God will reveal to us hidden things:

  1. Hidden keys of knowledge to dismantle and destroy works and roots of darkness.
  2. Hidden keys of wisdom to know what to do, to see the kingdom of God advance and be restored in the United States of America.
  3. That God reveal the very motives of men’s hearts, the agendas of godless men, intent on destroying this country, and that He, Himself destroy them: Ps 112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish. That these very desires perish, and that God change both the hearts of men and leadership here, or, if nessesary, the leadership itself, that the government be righteous, holy, and fully under the Lordship of Jesus.
  4. That the Lord come, and reveal the hidden things of dishonesty and iniquity, and that by manifestation of the truth, these be destroyed and cleansed from our land.
  5. That Father God in heaven, would have mercy upon this nation, and forgive us, and send again His spirit to reveal Jesus, and turn us back to Him. This is the promise God made to our founding fathers, from which we get our three branches of government:

Isaiah 33:22

For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, theLord is our king; he will save us! As I read this verse again this week, I am convinced that Jesus will save America! He is going to do it! Continue to stand with me for righteousness, and the preservation of this great nation! Amen

Healing America Tour – Choctaw/Spanish

Heal Our Land!

As I have spent a recent time over in the Holy Spirit, praying in other tongues, it has come to my attention that I need to go to Mobile, Alabama, and pray over the land, to cleanse it from the defilements resulting in the innocent bloodshed of the Choctaws at the hands of the Spanish conquistador De Soto.

For those of you unfamiliar with why I do this, know that I am committed to a move of the Holy Spirit in the United States of America, and if you have been to many prayer meetings, you have heard quoted:

2 Chronicles 7:14New International Version (NIV)

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Ever thought about the land itself needing healing?

It can be defiled by innocent bloodshed:

Psalm 106:38

They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.

Only the blood of Jesus, applied by faith can do this…

It is my intention to travel to Mobile, Alabama to the site of the Choctaw massacre of 1540 where an estimated 11,000 Choctaw were killed in battle defending their home. No date for this trip is yet set. If you would like to join me, please either call or text me at 918 851 4070, or email: chris.aomministries@gmail.com.

History of the Choctaw, Chickasaw and Natchez Indians – Horatio Bardwell Cushman

Pages 79-83

The Choctaws were first made known to the European world by the journalists of that memorable adventurer, Hernando De Soto, who invaded their territory October, 1540, and introduced the civilized (so-called) race of mankind to the Choctaws in the following manner: A manly young Indian of splendid proportions, and with a face extremely attractive and interesting, visited De Soto after he had left Tallase. He was the son of Tuscaloosa (corruption of the Choctaw words territories extended to the distant Tom big bee in the west. (Tom big bee is a corruption of the Choctaw words Itombi, box, ikbi, maker), a name given to a white man, it is said, who, at an early day, settled on the banks of the river and made boxes for the Choctaws, in which were placed the bones of their dead, which will be particularly noticed elsewhere. The young warrior bore an invitation from his father to De Soto to visit him at his capital. The next day De Soto, advancing to within six miles of where the great chief awaited him, made a halt, and sent Louis de Mascosso with fifteen horsemen to inform Tush ka Lusa of his near approach. Mascosso and his troopers soon appeared before Tush ka Lusa, who was seated upon an emin ence commanding a broad and delightful view. He was a man of powerful stature, muscular limbs, yet of admirable proportions, with a countenance grave and severe, yet handsome. When De Soto arrived Tush ka Lusa arose and advanced to meet him with a proud and haughty air, and said: “Great Chief; I receive you as a brother, and welcome you to my country. I am ready to comply with your requests.” After a few preliminaries, in company with Tush ka Lusa and his followers, De Soto took up his line of march for Mobila the capital of the mighty chief. (Mobila is a corruption of the two Choctaw words moma, all, binah, a lodge, literally a Choctaw word Pi-a-chih, to care for us), they passed through many populous towns, well stored with corn, beans and other provisions. On the fourth morning, De Soto, with a hundred cavalry and as many infantry, made a forced march with Tush ka Lusa in the direction of Mobila, leaving Mascosso to bring up the rear. At eight o’clock the same morning, October 18th, 1540, De Soto and Tush ka Lusa reached the capital. It stood by the si de of a large river, upon a beautiful plain, and consisted of e ighty handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men, and all fronting a large public square. Dodge says in his book styled “Our Wild Indians” that “The aboriginal inhabitants of the North American continent, have never at any time exceeded half a million souls;” yet according to De Soto’s journalists who were with him in his memorable raid, Mobila alone, “consisted of eighty handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men;” and if each house contained Dodge’s “several families consisting of men, with two or three wives, and children of all ages and sexes, occupy for all purposes one single lodge of 12 or 15 feet in diameter what must have been the number of indabitants in Mobila with “80 handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men” with two, three, or more wives, and children The reader can make the calculation at his own leisure; though it seems Mobila alone contained over half the number of souls that Dodge allows for the entire continent, “at one time.” A high wall surrounded the town, made of immense trunks of trees set close together and deep in the ground, and made strong with heavy cross timbers interwoven with large vines. A thick mud plaster, resembling handsome masonry, concealed the wood work, while port-holes were abundant, together with towers, capable of holding eight men each, at the distance of fifteen paces apart. There were two gates leading into the town, one on the east, the other on the west. De Soto and Tush ka Lusa were escorted into the great public square with songs and chants, and the dancing of beautiful Indian girls. They alighted from their horses, and were given seats under a canopy of state. Having remained seated for a short time, Tush ka Lusa now requested that he should no longer be held as a hostage; to which De Soto giving no heed, the indignant chief at once arose and walked off with an independent attitude to where a group of his warriors stood. De Soto had scarcely recovered from his surprise at the independent conduct of Tush ka Lusa, when Jean Ortez followed the chief and stated that breakfast awaited him at De Soto’s table; but he refused to return, and added, “If of my territory.” At this juncture De Soto secretly sent word to his men to be prepared for an attack. Then, hoping to prevent an attack until he could again get in possession of the chief, De Soto advanced toward him with assumed smiles and words of friendship, but Tush ka Lusa scornfully turned his back upon him, and was soon hidden among the multitude of now highly excited warriors. Just then a warrior rushed out of a house, denouncing the Spaniards as robbers and murderers and declared that they should no longer impose on their chief, by holding him as a prisoner. His words so enraged Baltaserde Gallagas, that he cut the warrior in twain with one sweep of his broad sword. At the sight of their slain warrior, the Choctaws, with their defiant war-whoop, at once rushed upon De Soto and his men. De Soto, placing himself at the head of his men, fighting and retreating, slowly made his way out of the town into the plain; and continued to retreat until he had reached a considerable distance upon the plain. In the mean time the troopers rushed to secure their horses, which had been tied outside of the walls. The Choctaws at once knocked the chains from the hands and feet of the Indian prisoners whom De Soto had brought with him, giving them weapons bade them help destroy the perfidious strangers. In the first rush the Choctaws killed five of the Spaniards, who had good fortune in dense masses before the gate. At that moment, De Soto with his cavalry, closely followed by his infantry, made a fearful charge upon the disordered mass of the Choctaws, who were still on the outside of the enclosures, and with a terrible slaughter drove them back into the town. Immediately the Choctaws rushed to the port-holes and towers, and hurled clouds of arrows and spears upon the Spaniards, and again drove them from the walls. Seeing the Spaniards again retreat, again the Choctaws rushed through the gate and fearlessly attacked the Spaniards fighting them hand to hand and face to face. Three long hours did the battle rage, the Spaniards now retreating, then the Choctaws. Like a spectre De Soto seemed every where hewing down on the right and left, as if his arm could never tire. That sword, which had been so often stained with the blood of the South American, was now red with that of the North American, a still braver race. Above the mighty din was heard the voice of Tush ka Lusa encouraging his warriors; his tomahawk, wielded by his muscular arm, ascended and descended in rapid strokes, like a meteor across a starry sky. But could the feeble bow and arrow and the tomahawk avail against the hug e lance and broad-sword? What the unprotected body of the Choctaw warrior against the steel clad body of the Spanish soldier? At the enclosure of their town, closing the gates after them; and at the same time the Spaniards made a desperate charge against the gates and walls, but were met with showers of arrows and other missiles. But the infantry, protected by their bucklers, soon hewed the gates to pieces with their battle-axes, and rushed into the town, while the cavalry remained on the outside to cut to pieces all who might attempt to escape. Then began a carnage too awful to relate. The Choctaws fought in the streets, in the square, from the house top, and walls; and though the ground was covered with their dead and dying relatives and friends, still no living one entreated for quarter. Hotter and hotter, and more bloody waxed the desperate conflict. Often the Choctaws drove the Spaniards out of the town, but to see them return again with demoniac fury. To such a crisis had the battle now arrived, that there could be no idle spectators; and now were seen women and girls contending side by side with the husbands, fathers and brothers, and fearlessly sharing in the dangers and in the indiscriminate slaughter. At length the houses were setson fire, and the wind blew the smoke and flames in all directions adding horror to the scene. The flames ascended in mighty volumes. The din of strife began to grow fainter. The sun weut down, seemingly to rejoice in withdrawing from the sickening was in ruins, and her people slain. For nine long hours had the battle raged. Eighty-two Spaniards were killed and forty-five horses. But alas, the poor Choctaws, who participated in the fight were nearly all slain. Garcellasso asserts that eleven thousand were slain; while the “Portuguese Gentleman” sets the number at twenty five hundred within the town alone. Assuming a point between the two, it is reasonable to conclude that six thousand were killed in and outside of the town. Tushka Lusa perished with his people. After the destruction of Mobila, De Soto remained a few days upon the plains around the smoking town; sending out foraging parties, who found the neighboring villages well stocked with provisions. In all these foraging excursions, females of great beauty were captured, and added to those taken at the close of the battle. On Sunday the 18th of November, 1540, this monster and his fiendish crew took their departure from the smouldering ruins of Mobila, and its brave but murdered inhabitants; and with the poor Mobila girls, at whose misfortunes humanity weeps, resumed their westward march.” Thus the Europeans introduced themselves to the Native Americans nearly four centuries ago as a race of civilized and Christian people, but proving themselves to be a race of fiends utterly void of every principle of virtue the Europeans as a race unknown to civilization and Christianity, yet proving themselves possessed of many virtues that adorn man, together with a spirit of as true and noble patriotism, martyrs upon the altar of liberty, that has never been surpassed. I challenge history to show a nation whose people ever displayed a more heroic courage in defense of their country and homes than did Tushka Lusa and his brave people in defending their town Mama-binah. They exposed their naked breasts to the keen lances and swords of those iron-clad Spaniards with but stone and bone-tipped spears and the feeble bow and arrow, which were but as toy pistols against the deadly Winchester rifle of the present day; and heroically stood face to face with their terrible foes with their frail weapons and disputed every inch of ground, and yielded only when none was left to fight. That they should have killed eighty two of the Spaniards with their feeble weapons is truly astonishing, proving conclusively that had they been on equal footing with the Spaniards, not a Spaniard would have survived to tell the tale of their complete destruction.

Some Biblical thoughts on wealth….

Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 

Matthew 11:19

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

 

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

John 15:14

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

 

Deuteronomy 8:18Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

 

Acts 1:8Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

 

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up forthe just.

 

Proverbs 19:4

Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

 

Luke 16:9

And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

 

 

Job 42:10 When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!

 

Here’s the way I see these verses:

  1. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and He loves all people.
  2. When bad (sinful) people do us wrong, we are commanded to forgive and love them.
  3. We must pray for our enemies, because the power of God is what will set them free, and break mind-blinding spirits off of them.
  4. If our personal mission is the great commission, then God gives us power to get wealth, the power of the Holy Spirit.
  5. This power gives us grace to love the unlovable, to literally become friends of sinners like Jesus.
  6. This friendship allows us to receive unrighteous money (Money received through wrong means)
  7. This is the wealth transfer, where the wealth of the sinner stored up for the righteous comes to us.
  8. If we want double for our trouble in dealing with people we know who are not walking with God the way we are, we need to be continually praying for our friends….

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I see my life is all about love and redemption. Your harvest of souls and disciples in this, my generation. Help me to love, forgive, and honestly pray for those who are not doing right, with honest concern for their best interests, eternal life. As I do this, I trust that You will release to me wealth and finances, to obey you in what You have created me to do, as I daily hear and obey what You have called me to do Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Red Man Rising!

freedom

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.

https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/07/03/the-first-nations-mandate/

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’

crazy horse

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!”

Let’s Pray:

‘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!”

Donation Needed – Roofing Materials for Navajo Reservation

Roof Needed on Navajo Nation Reservation.

In April, I was made aware of the great need of a roof for this double-wide modular home located on the property of Window Rock Church of God, belonging to Ron and Tyda Harvey. The shingles we mostly blown off, and water had got in and rotted out 58lf of ridge and rafters.

The need is great, because Ron and Tyda currently care for 10 children each day, and they need a place to live.

We tore off the remainder of the shingles, and tarped it initially.

A friend purchased the framing materials, sheathing, fasteners, and 30lb felt needed to repair the deck, with the hope that another contractor might donate the metal needed to roof it.

The reframe, decking, and drying in with felt are almost complete, but I just learned that the contractor trying to donate the metal, can not, because he did not get the demo contract of a large steel building that would have provided the metal panels needed.

The house is 80’ long x 16’ wide with a 16” overhang if my memory serves me correctly. When I measured the length from the ridge to the lower edge of shingles (drip edge), I measured 113” long. I need something to roof it with.

 

Is anyone able to donate roofing materials to roof it with. (in an area where 50mph winds are regular).

GO!

As many of you have journeyed with me these past couple of years, as I dug deep into the Word of God, and mined the depths of Scripture for life lessons to bring understanding to some of the deeper truths we need to be strong, Jesus has been faithful! For the first year of this journey, we ate at local food banks, considering such things as milk, eggs, and flour for pancakes great luxuries. We truly learned the difference between a want and a need…

Then, Holy Spirit gave me some understanding of the plight of the North American Indian…

My trail of tears had come, and from this great agony of intercession, came Ron and Tyda Harvey, and pastor Jerry Tom of the Navajo nation. Graciously, they invited me to come to the Navajo reservation, as they prepared for ‘Gathering of all tribes’, a fairly large event, that hosted 57 tribes from all across North America for a week of meetings.

We have now been to the Navajo nation four trips since April of this year, with the 14 hour drive from Tulsa  becoming our extended times of Holy Spirit prayer, as we have confessed the Word, and then got over in the Holy Spirit for many, many hours, praying out mysteries in other tongues. Rather than attempt to document the reconciliation service with veterans, the construction of the outdoor stage, the flag raising ceremony, the pioneering of the Bible school, or some of the incredible shouts of faith that have erupted from warriors of faith, with nothing but Jesus to lean upon, I simply give God all the glory for what has been done, as incredibly sacrificial servants of the Lord have mobilized….

The Bible school begins classes September 8th in Window Rock. I plan on being there to help kick it off.

When I get back to Tulsa, I plan on having a “Navajo Discussion meeting’, where those of us who have been on the reservation this year, can all get together to hang out, pray, EAT, and brainstorm as to how best to meet some of the screaming needs that still exist there.

There are still several construction projects that need completion : 1. We must get metal or roof materials to roof pastor Ron’s house. 2. We need a fence and water run for an irrigation systems

3. We need plumbing supplies to construct a couple of bathrooms at another ministry. A shower there would be a great blessing too.

 

And we have kept going…

During the conference, I was given the opportunity to go to Canso, Nova Scotia on an errand for a friend of mine. So, after the exhausting drive from Window Rock, we spent one glorious night in our own beds (doing piles of laundry), and hit the road for Canada.

Every where we stopped for meals or gas, God has had divine appointments to pray for the sick, meet with leaders to discuss potential Bible schools, and to preach and teach the word of God.

 Eph 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

 

During the conference, I met Mark Vasquez of the Saginaw Chippiwa nation . We spent three days in Mount Pleasant, Michigan with Mark and his step dad Fred. Incredible people, hungry for Jesus and revival, to see Him move among the tribe. I spoke on the nature of addictions at ‘God’s Cabin’ there, and prayed for folks. Had seven of them receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues! Thank you Jesus!

Well, we went from there, all the way here to Georgetown, Prince Edward Island where we will spend a couple of days resting up before the sojourn on back to Tulsa. According to the GPS, we have experienced over 75 hours of actual drive time since leaving for Window Rock July 4th. Been to Canso, NS (the most eastern part of Canada?), and spent a couple wonderful days with family in Dartmouth, NS.

It has been over 14 years since I have been home to see family….

It has been a long, long time in the jeep…

Planning on spending a couple of days here resting up some, then attacking the highway and prayer again, in the long ride back to Tulsa…

I expect signs, wonders, miracles, and divine appointments to continue to occur, as we spend the daily hours over in the Holy Spirit, praying for you, and the people God places in our path. Pray we hear clearly, and fully obey. As always, pray and contribute as He leads, so that we can keep on moving forward…

The fastest way to get money to us I have discovered, is through Walmart Money Gram. We can always find a Walmart somewhere, and can pick up funds there. The best way to contact us, is by Facebook (Chris Karen Walsh) or email: chris.aomministries@gmail.com, as we have hit many regions where our cell phone service does not work.

Until the 2nd week of September, GO, is my mandate, then, by the grace of God, I will get back to my daily disciplines of prayer, study, exercise, and completion of the three books I am currently writing. Would be nice to have an extra 50 copies on hand as I travel, to give away to folks we meet on the road…

Thank you for joining us in this journey of faith! So many have either come with us, prayed with us, house sat, helped fix electronics, vehicle, or our home, or opened your homes to us, and fed us a well needed home cooked meal, that it is radically evident that only God could have brought this whole thing together. I so appreciate your prayer, there have been times of exhaustion where I literally feel Holy Spirit carrying me…Thank you.

Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

For every good work, miracle, or changed life, it is because each of us did our part. There are no big ‘I’s” little ‘you’s’ in the kingdom of God. Jesus loves us each equally, and seems to use us all at different seasons, different ways…Don’t despise small acts of kindness towards missionaries, travelling is not easy, and the simple comfort of a hot cuppa coffee on a foggy day, go a long way to help along the way.

Mt 10:41  He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

Mt 10:42  And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

‘Father, I see clearly that it takes faith, to hear You, and to Go! It also takes faith to give. I have received all the accommodation, meals, hospitality, and love offerings of your people, with thanksgiving, also in faith. Faith, that as the seed of Abraham, that the blessing of Abraham is operating in our lives, causing that which has been sown, to be multiplied according to the sand of the seashore, and the stars of the heavens! I ask You sir, to release to these, Your rewards, for You love each of us equally! I ask, knowing that I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your mighty and matchless name Lord Jesus, Amen’

Expect miracles!

US Government Apology to Natives

NativeRes Hi Everyone, By now, most of you know my story. How God brought me to a First Nations meeting in 1995, hosted by Canadian senator Elijah Harper, called ‘Sacred Assembly’. How, through the sovereign grace of God, and the incredibly sacrificial leadership of Kenny Blacksmith, Jonathon Maracle, and finally Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a resolution of apology was drafted up, and presented to the host peoples of Canada, that they prayerfully reviewed for a year after it was publicly passed through the Canadian House of Commons in August 2009. This resulted in the epic ‘Forgiven’ summit in Canada in 2010, that is now known as a Canadian national holiday called the ‘Day of Reconciliation’, part of Aboriginal Days. http://vimeo.com/42439986 God blessed Canada, they aligned with the nation of Israel, and history was made! Years of anguished prayer had arisen to God, as people gave God pain too deep for human words…. God Himself answered, giving people the grace and strength, to forgive the unforgivable, to speak the unspeakable, and to heal… This is now occurring in the United States, years of deep, deep prayer from the host peoples of this land: for healing, wisdom, justice, understanding…. In 2009, a formal Apology to Native Americans, was drafted up by Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas, in conjunction with Dr. Negiel Bigpond (Yuchi), and Dr Jay Swallow (Cheyanne/Arapaho), and passed through Congress and signed by President Obama in Dec 19th, 2009. To my knowledge, this has never been publicly read by the President, or any state official. It needs to be done. There is power in the spoken word, life and death are in the power of the tongue. Many First Nations leaders are eager to forgive, reconcile, and create a new day of grace and honor for America when this is done, but at present, for those of us in tune with heaven and the voice of the Holy Spirit, there is a scream emitting on behalf of the innocent bloodshed, and broken treaties that still bear witness before the throne of God, against this great nation. God wants it fixed… This is pivotal, before His throne, for this happening. My requests as I post this are twofold: 1. Prayerfully read the resolution, and include Indians and host peoples in your daily prayer. 2. Ask your governor or state official to read this publicly, and invite whatever tribes and host peoples live in their jurisdictions. Last night, at Window Rock Church of God, Cory Wolfe read this here on the Navajo nation, and God clearly bore witness to its power and impact. Please, circulate and post this across America, as I believe this is the current the number one thing on the heart of our heavenly Father, in seeing this nation restored to its destiny, honor and calling. https://www.facebook.com/ApologytoAmericanIndians http://vimeo.com/56785141 The deepest move of God in America presently, is occurring among the host peoples of the land. Are you in, or out? Sure love you, Keep Smiling! Jesus is Lord!   Chris

READ THE APOLOGY:

United States of America
Congressional Apology to American Indians
WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 2004
Text of S.J.RES.37: Apology to Native peoples
The following is the text of S.J.RES.37, a bill to acknowledge a long history of official depredations and ill-conceived policies by the United States Government regarding Indian tribes and offer an apology to all Native Peoples on behalf of the United States, as introduced on May 6, 2004.
JOINT RESOLUTION
To acknowledge a long history of official depredations and ill-conceived policies by the United States Government regarding Indian tribes and offer an apology to all Native Peoples on behalf of the United States.
Whereas the ancestors of today’s Native Peoples inhabited the land of the present-day United States since time immemorial and for thousands of years before the arrival of peoples of European descent;
Whereas the Native Peoples have for millennia honored, protected, and stewarded this land we cherish;
Whereas the Native Peoples are spiritual peoples with a deep and abiding belief in the Creator, and for millennia their peoples have maintained a powerful spiritual connection to this land, as is evidenced by their customs and legends;
Whereas the arrival of Europeans in North America opened a new chapter in the histories of the Native Peoples;
Whereas, while establishment of permanent European settlements in North America did stir conflict with nearby Indian tribes, peaceful and mutually beneficial interactions also took place;
Whereas the foundational English settlements in Jamestown, Virginia, and Plymouth, Massachusetts, owed their survival in large measure to the compassion and aid of the Native Peoples in their vicinities;
Whereas in the infancy of the United States, the founders of the Republic expressed their desire for a just relationship with the Indian tribes, as evidenced by the Northwest Ordinance enacted by Congress in 1787, which begins with the phrase, `The utmost good faith shall always be observed toward the Indians’;
Whereas Indian tribes provided great assistance to the fledgling Republic as it strengthened and grew, including invaluable help to Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their epic journey from St. Louis, Missouri, to the Pacific Coast;
Whereas Native Peoples and non-Native settlers engaged in numerous armed conflicts;
Whereas the United States Government violated many of the treaties ratified by Congress and other diplomatic agreements with Indian tribes;
Whereas this Nation should address the broken treaties and many of the more ill-conceived Federal policies that followed, such as extermination, termination, forced removal and relocation, the outlawing of traditional religions, and the destruction of sacred places;
Whereas the United States forced Indian tribes and their citizens to move away from their traditional homelands and onto federally established and controlled reservations, in accordance with such Acts as the Indian Removal Act of 1830;
Whereas many Native Peoples suffered and perished–
(1) during the execution of the official United States Government policy of forced removal, including the infamous Trail of Tears and Long Walk;
(2) during bloody armed confrontations and massacres, such as the Sand Creek Massacre in 1864 and the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890; and
(3) on numerous Indian reservations;
Whereas the United States Government condemned the traditions, beliefs, and customs of the Native Peoples and endeavored to assimilate them by such policies as the redistribution of land under the General Allotment Act of 1887 and the forcible removal of Native children from their families to faraway boarding schools where their Native practices and languages were degraded and forbidden;
Whereas officials of the United States Government and private United States citizens harmed Native Peoples by the unlawful acquisition of recognized tribal land, the theft of resources from such territories, and the mismanagement of tribal trust funds;
Whereas the policies of the United States Government toward Indian tribes and the breaking of covenants with Indian tribes have contributed to the severe social ills and economic troubles in many Native communities today;
Whereas, despite continuing maltreatment of Native Peoples by the United States, the Native Peoples have remained committed to the protection of this great land, as evidenced by the fact that, on a per capita basis, more Native people have served in the United States Armed Forces and placed themselves in harm’s way in defense of the United States in every major military conflict than any other ethnic group;
Whereas Indian tribes have actively influenced the public life of the United States by continued cooperation with Congress and the Department of the Interior, through the involvement of Native individuals in official United States Government positions, and by leadership of their own sovereign Indian tribes; Whereas Indian tribes are resilient and determined to preserve, develop, and transmit to future generations their unique cultural identities;
Whereas the National Museum of the American Indian was established within the Smithsonian Institution as a living memorial to the Native Peoples and their traditions; and
Whereas Native Peoples are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among those are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
