Right Wing Leftovers

  • Ken Blackwell will not run for Senate in Ohio, thus rendering all of the crazy stuff we have collected about him useless.  Thanks a lot.
  • Today's winner for least surprising/most pointless statement: "Liberty Counsel Supports Israel’s Right to Exist."
  • Bryan Fischer continues his nonsensical "hate crimes" crusade.
  • Here is Cindy Jacobs laying out the importance of the Seven Mountains.
  • FRC's Peter Sprigg tries to get us to believe that "the principal objection to homosexual 'marriage' has nothing to do with religion."
  • Gov. Sam Brownback was the first (and only) governor to agree to attend the Rick Perry/AFA prayer rally ... but now he saying he'll attend only if his schedule permits.  Is he getting cold feet?

Right Wing Leftovers

  • The Family Policy Network is actually acknowledging of the hypocrisy of the Anthony Weiner situation and is therefore calling on Sen. David Vitter to resign.
  • Michele Bachmann gets the Matt Tiabbi treatment.
  • Why is Elaine Donnelly commenting on USDA policy?
  • Sometime I think Bryan Fischer is just intentionally dense.  He does understand the difference between people deciding not to join something and being banned from joining, does he not?
  • Cindy Jacobs lays out God's plan for the nation.

Perry Reaches Out To Vander Plaats For Iowa Advice

As Governor Rick Perry ponders a run for the presidency, it is already clear that he doesn’t mind working with the most radical of anti-gay leaders. Perry’s The Response prayer rally is hosted by the American Family Association, whose spokesman Bryan Fischer wants to see homosexuality criminalized, and former activists with The Call, a prayer rally that defended Uganda’s 'kill-the-gays' bill. Other individuals working with The Response include militantly anti-gay leaders Jim Garlow, Cindy Jacobs, David Barton and David Welch.

Now, the Des Moines Register reports that Perry aides are reaching out to Bob Vander Plaats, the head of The Family Leader. Vander Plaats led the successful campaign to remove three Iowa Supreme Court justices who backed marriage equality and is closely linked to (and funded by) the AFA. Vander Plaats is also tied to an effort that likened being gay to being a cigarette smoker and once said that allowing equal marriage rights for gay couples threatened the system of private property and gun-ownership rights. One former adviser said that Vander Plaats is “obsessed with the gay marriage issue.”

Since Vander Plaats is a powerful Religious Right figure who has hosted presidential candidates like Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Herman Cain, it is no surprise that Perry is in touch with him:

A supporter of possible presidential candidate Rick Perry of Texas telephoned an Iowa conservative leader today, inquiring about the political scene in Iowa.

“They were asking questions, asking my take on Iowa, how things are lining up and also making sure I know they like Rick Perry,” said Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader, an Iowa-based conservative advocacy group that’s hosting a presidential lecture series.



Vander Plaats said he has so far spoke with two Texans and one other out-of-stater, but declined to share their names because the conversations were intended to be private.

None of the callers included Perry’s political strategist Dave Carney, or anyone who currently works for Perry, he said. “They’re just people that are around him and they think he’d be good for the race,” Vander Plaats said.

Will Rick Perry's Prayer Rally Feature Spiritual Warfare?

When Texas governor and potential presidential candidate Rick Perry decided to host a prayer rally, The Response, with the bigoted American Family Association and the radical International House of Prayer, Right Wing Watch noted the two groups’ bigoted and extreme beliefs along with the rally’s goal of proselytizing to non-Christians.

Yesterday we noted that one of the leaders of Texas Governor Rick Perry’s The Response, ‘Apostle’ Doug Stringer, blamed America for the September 11th attacks because of what he saw as the country’s increasing secularism and acceptance of homosexuality, and that the AFA began using other ‘apostles’ to defend Perry as the answer to their prayers. Already, Kansas governor and former senator Sam Brownback has signed up to participate.

One of The Response’s endorsers, Cindy Jacobs, is a self-declared ‘Prophet’ and a well-known advocate of the “spiritual warfare,” writing books such as Deliver Us From Evil and Possessing the Gates of the Enemy: A Training Manual for Militant Intercession. For example, Jacobs used spiritual warfare against Craigslist, non-Christian religions, and gays and lesbians.

Another The Response endorser is “spiritual warfare” leader James ‘Jay’ Swallow, a Native American “apostle” who founded the Two Rivers Native American Training Center. Like Jacobs, Swallow has spoken at The Call rallies including one in which he accepted on behalf of all Native Americans Brownback’s apology for the federal government’s mistreatment of indigenous people. According to his biography, “God has given Dr. Swallow extraordinary insight into ‘healing the land’ through prayer and spiritual warfare.” The Center is built around the “Strategic Warriors At Training (SWAT): A Christian Military Training Camp for the purpose of dealing with the occult and territorial enemy strong holds in America.” Seminars include “Demonic Spirits,” “Spiritual Warfare,” “Identifying the Strongman,” and “Freemasonry.” The training is apparently so intense that Swallow asks participants sign a “release of liability” form to waive their right to sue.

According to the Swallow, the theme of the training is “We have declared war”:

In the last decade great leaders have been given the revelation of ingredients that have instituted the desire of God to recover from the enemy the promises of our nation, America, and to compact the many divisions into an expression of Biblical Christianity.

The enemy has fortified his temporary property by placing strongholds of resistance to the coming invasion. He knows he is to be removed from authority over areas that we, the divided church, have given him permission to rule.



The next two weeks will make warriors out of you. I don’t mean armchair warriors, but a SPECIALIZED COMMANDO group that will engage and set the order of discipline and order to tear down the first line of defense against the enemy.

Our job will be to establish a beachhead and occupy until the main forces can mobilize to secure the territory in Jesus’ Name.

Again, these are just a few of the people who Rick Perry is working with to put on his prayer rally.

Rick Perry Partners With 'Apostle' Who Blames America For September 11th Attacks

Right Wing Watch has looked into organizers of Gov. Rick Perry's The Response from Cindy Jacobs, who blamed the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell for mass bird deaths in Arkansas, to televangelist John Hagee, who claimed God sent Hitler to be a “hunter” of Jews, and the rabidly anti-gay International House of Prayer. The Response's National Church and Ministry Mobilization Coordinator Doug Stringer, a Texas ‘Apostle’ who believes that the America only had it self to blame for the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 because the country rejected God and His protection:

In our gathering in Dallas, we realized there are three primary things in Scripture that are so disheartening to God that they cause Him to be ill, and they ultimately cause His presence to depart from His people:

1. Ritual or temple prostitution

2. The shedding of innocent blood on the altar

3. Licentiousness or moral looseness to the degree that it is “in your face,” including homosexuality



Immediately after the tragedy of 9/11, I was contacted by national media who asked me if I thought this was a judgment of God. Along with Anne Graham Lotz, I stated:

“WE ASKED GOD NOT TO BE IN OUR SCHOOLS, NOT TO BE IN OUR PUBLIC VENUES, NOT TO BE THE LORD OF OUR LIVES ANY MORE EXCEPT IN IMAGE. YET WE WANT TO BLAME GOD WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPEN?

“IT REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU MEAN BY ‘JUDGMENT’ OF GOD. IF YOU’RE SAYING GOD’S NOT PRESENT SO JUDGMENT COMES, THEN THE ANSWER IS YES. BUT THE BIBLE SAYS SIN PRODUCES DEATH. IT WAS OUR CHOICE TO ASK GOD NOT TO BE IN OUR EVERY DAY LIVES AND NOT TO BE PRESENT IN OUR LAND. THIS IS NOT AN ACT OF JUDGMENT, IT’S A WAKE-UP CALL. GOD IS LONGING TO BE IN THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE AGAIN.”

When I asked my friend David Ravenhill to address a gathering of pastors in Houston, he challenged us with this question: “Are you asking God to come as invited guest or as an inhabitant?”

I have many close friends who will invite me into their houses and tell me to make myself at home. While there, I know I can help myself to the kitchen, get up or go to bed when I want to, borrow a book from a bookshelf. But what would my friends think if I began painting the walls, changing out the furniture, or redecorating the living room to fit my own tastes?

This is, sadly, what we do with God. We want Him around, but only as our invited guest rather than One who has the right to create an atmosphere or an environment in which He wants to dwell.

My spiritual grandfather, Leonard Ravenhill, used to say, “Is the life you’re living worth Christ dying for?” We cannot live the kind of life worth the price our Savior paid unless we allow God in, not as a guest but as an inhabitant. We must open our hearts, our churches, and our public venues as dwelling places and allow Him to conform them to fit His preferences instead of our own. That is the difference between institutional Christianity and impartational relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.

The Response Organizers Say Rick Perry Is An Answer To Their Prayers

The American Family Association is taking to defend the prayer rally, The Response, that they are hosting with Texas Governor Rick Perry. The AFA’s OneNewsNow today interviewed Tom Schlueter of the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network to defend the rally, whose spokesman said is meant to bring people of different faiths “to seek out the living Christ” and worship Jesus.

The Texas Apostolic Prayer Network is just one of many ‘New Apostolic’ organizations to work with Gov. Perry and the AFA on The Response, and the group calls on people to file “a decree of divorce from Baal,” renounce Free Masonry, and pray for the conversion of Muslims who are “rooted Deeply into Satan’s schemes.” And the group’s advisers include leading ‘prophets’ in the New Apostolic movement like Cindy Jacobs and Doug Stringer, who are endorsers of The Response, and Chuck Pierce.

Schlueter tells the AFA’s OneNewsNow:

Dr. Tom Schlueter of the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network says many citizens have been praying for a political leader to be bold enough to call the nation to its knees.

According to Schlueter, the event is decidedly apolitical…but Perry is also the answer of prayers that God will raise up a leader to bring the country to prayer:

"One of the things that we have been asking the Lord for many, many years has been a time when one of our political leaders will rise up and make this kind of a call to the state or to the nation," he shares.

As Rachel Tabachnick of Talk2Action notes, Schlueter once tied Hurricane Rita to the campaign to pass a constitutional amendment in Texas banning gay and lesbian couples from marrying:

Two weeks before Hurricane Rita hit Texas, the USSPN began a God-ordained national effort to bring the governmental rule of the King of Glory to our nation along the I-35 corridor. This effort began in the largest inland port in our nation, Laredo, Texas. Through Apostles Jay Swallow and Doug Stringer and Prophet Chuck Pierce, God positioned the Church of the region (Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico) in unity and governmentally set the Church in order, commissioning the Church to develop and move with Kingdom authority. The United States of America will either be held together or divided by what occurs during the next three years along the I-35 corridor. What began with the Church of Laredo-Nuevo Laredo must continue all the way to the Canadian border. The Lord Jesus Christ wants the Church along the I-35 corridor to move in obedience to Him with unity, order, and authority.

That you are praying for Texas the week before the citizens of our state vote for or against God's definition of marriage is NO coincidence. The people of Texas and especially the Church of Texas have been summoned to decide between two "opinions". Will the Church "hesitate" between these two or will the Church follow God? The opposition is gathering their forces, meeting regularly, and planning strategically. We need the Lord to bring down fire from heaven to consume the plans of the enemy and to bring a downpour of rain to bless the efforts of those who are obediently and diligently trying to inspire and inform the Church of Texas about the upcoming vote concerning the marriage amendment.

More Anti-Gay Activists Sign On To Rick Perry's Prayer Rally

Organizers of Rick Perry's "The Response" prayer rally are slowing adding more names to the list of those participating or endorsing the event.  In addition to the American Family Association, Jim Garlow, and John Hagee, the event website has now added a new page of endorsers that includes another Lou Engle associate and several more anti-gay activists:

Barton is obviously well-known, but Che Ahn, who plucked Lou Engle from his life mowing laws and gave him a job as a full-time prophet and worked with Engle in co-founding The Call, is less so.

Dave Welch is the viciously anti-gay founder of the U.S. Pastor Council who apologized to the nation for failing to stop the "enemy" when an openly gay woman was elected mayor of Houston and declared her election a sign "of cancer of the soul among the people."

And then, of course, there is "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs who explained earlier this year that birds were dying in large numbers because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell:

This is quite a line-up that Gov. Perry is putting together.

Cindy Jacobs Reveals Meeting With Mexican President Felipe Calderon

Back in April Cindy Jacobs issued a "prophetic directive" that was known as "The Cinco de Mayo Initiative," and which consisted of "a highly strategic 21-day prayer and fasting initiative to contend for righteous trade, peace and security at our nation’s southern border."

In her latest Generals International news update, Jacobs reveals that, as part of the effort, she and her husband were invited to Mexico to meet with several high-ranking members of the Mexican government, including President Felipe Calderon and the First Lady:

We joined 29 other leaders who had converged from all across America for a briefing from Transform, Mexico. We were delighted to also have received an invitation from President Calderon and his gracious first lady, Margarita. The list of American leaders looked like a who’s who of evangelical leaders. We were blessed to be there with them.

...

After going through the security checkpoint, we entered a lovely, brightly colored conference room. We were to be hosted at this juncture by the First Lady, Margarita, and Dr. Poire’, a Harvard grad and teacher who has a cabinet position that similar to that of a U.S. Secretary of State ... Another cabinet secretary came in and sat at my right hand. He explained that he is the equivalent to our Homeland Secretary. He was most kind to be there in our midst. To his right was President Calderon and the First Lady, Margarita ...

After we dined, we were briefed by Alex Orozco, who is in charge of programs for the well being of the nation’s elderly population.

Then President Calderon, a graduate of Harvard University, greeted us in flawless English. What a great man he is! I thought to myself, “We are in the presence of a living legend who is risking his life every day to serve his nation!” He shared a number of excellent points with us but as I didn’t have note cards at this point I wasn’t able to write them down. He shared that the unemployment rate for Mexico is lower than that of the United States; which surprised me. He also expressed how the murder rate was lower than many places in the U.S. and gave some statistics.

After a time, we were able to ask him questions as well. At one point, I was able to voice what many of us had expressed privately to one another, “Mr. President, I believe I can say that many of us have felt both embarrassment and sorrow at some of the things we have heard today about how our nation has caused so many problems for your nation.“ I went on to ask his forgiveness for our greed for money, drugs and lust. Many leaders shook their heads in agreement. It was a snapshot in time that I will personally never forget. I don’t think it was just my imagination, but there was a tangible change in the atmosphere at that point. At the very least, I was greatly relieved to have had a moment to share the heaviest of heart I had felt after hearing the Mexican side of our border problems. We, as Americans, cannot point fingers at “them” without taking a hard look at ourselves.

The crux of the matter is that the Bible commands us to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” Mexico is our neighbor. We made a covenant with them through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo to be friends and have reciprocity in our relationships. That day the covenant was repaired—in our hearts and beyond.

Jacobs: "It Is Time For Many Jewish People To Turn To The Lord"

The response from the Religious Right to President Obama's recent speech on the Middle East has ranged from allegations that he is anti-Semitic and encouraging ethnic cleansing to fears that he is cursing America and dividing the nation.

But Cindy Jacobs sees an upside - namely that God is using this as an opportunity to "shake up Israel" so they will turn toward Jesus:

We are sorry to be so slow in responding to the shocking comments that President Obama made concerning Israel last month. We were traveling out of the country during the time of the President's statement on returning the borders of Israel back to its 1967 borders.

As you know, we as a prayer network stand with Israel and believe strongly that a dividing of the land of Israel and Jerusalem in particular will cause our own to be divided in some way.

As I prayed about the current situation in the Middle East I feel that God is going to use this pressure to shake Israel up and cause them to seek His face. I saw many young Messianic believers boldly proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ without fear of repercussions. It is time for many Jewish people to turn to the Lord.

Engle: Black Leaders Must Forgive White People Or Else "You Are Actually Holding Us As Slaves"

Last week we stumbled upon the website for an organization called Transformation Michigan, which appears to be one of those New Apostolic Reformation prayer networks dedicated to transforming the nation via intercessory prayer.

The website had posted several recent conference calls hosted by Transformation Michigan with the likes of Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle, Jerry Boykin, and Janet Porter.  And while the calls were mostly rather dull, they did contain some revelations ... such as the fact that there is a prayer team in Michigan that is dedicated to praying over every mosque in the state; an idea Boykin would like to see spread all over the country:

Janet Porter spent her conference call arguing with supporters of the radical "personhood amendments" who were intent on attacking Porter's own "Heartbeat Bill" for not going far enough, to which Porter responded by comparing her effort to that of Oskar Schindler:

For her part, Cindy Jacobs declared that were it not for abortion, "our housing industry would be stellar [and] the economy would be booming":

Finally, Lou Engle declared that the next The Call rally to be held in Detroit on 11/11/11 would be an opportunity where "Whites must repent for any racism" while "Blacks must forgive [white people]" because, if they don't, "you are actually holding us as slaves":

AFA Yanks Post Calling Out Religious Right For Aligning With False Prophets

The other day we noted that it was rather odd that the American Family Association's blog would publish a post attacking the Religious Right for aligning itself with members of the New Apostolic Reformation like Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, and Lou Engle who are "in the grip of evil."

The post's publication was especially surprising given that a) these activists have become accepted members of the Religious Right movement and b) the people who have eagerly welcomed them into the movement are themselves close allies of the AFA.

So the AFA did exactly what you would expect them to do: they removed the post.

Of course, the cached version is still available here and the post can still be read over at RenewAmerica.

AFA Blog Post Calls Out Religious Right Leaders For Associating With False Prophets

We have been writing about the growing overlap between the traditional Religious Right and the new brand of self-proclaimed prophets and apostles like Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, Chuck Pierce, and Lou Engle, who have emerged out of the New Apostolic Reformation movement.

In recent years, old-school Religious Right leaders like Tony Perkins and Janet Porter have eagerly embraced leaders like Joyner, Engle and Jacobs and welcomed them into movement, often placing them front and center in their events. 

So imagine our surprise when we took at look at the American Family Association's blog today and saw a post by Marsha West laying out her concerns about the movement and calling out various Religious Right leaders by name for aligning with false prophets like Jacobs:

Last year self-professed NAR prophet Cindy Jacobs’ and General’s International held the May Day 2010: A Cry To God For A Nation In Distress at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial where “local representatives shared about their state’s Christian heritage and lifted up prayers for their state and the United States. National leaders offered up prayers of repentance for seven main issues: family, the church, education, arts and entertainment, business, government and the media.” Janet Porter of Faith2Action had an active role in organizing the gathering. In attendance were such notables as James Dobson, Tony Perkins, Wendy Wright, Jerry Newcombe, Peter LaBarbera, David Barton, Mathew Staver, Robert Knight, Alan Keyes, to name a few. Also in attendance were several NAR leaders including C. Peter Wagner, Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets, Lance Wallnau and Rick Joyner.

In April 2010 conservative Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA hosted The Awakening 2010 conference sponsored by the Freedom Federation. They define themselves as “a group of the nation's largest multiracial, multiethnic and multigenerational faith-based and policy organizations representing more than 30 million Americans united by core values. The group’s mission is to bring together community leaders committed to mobilizing the Judeo-Christian worldview to preserve freedom and promote justice.”

One of the speakers at the event was Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Other influential leaders include Newt Gingrich, Gary Bauer, Tony Perkins, Wendy Wright, Richard Land, Andrea Lafferty, Kelly Shackelford, Ken Blackwell, Mat Staver, Rick Scarborough, and NAR Apostles Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle, Harry Jackson and Samuel Rodriguez.

What is wrong with this picture? People from the NAR who are in the grip of evil were invited to participate in both of these events. One example is Cindy Jacobs. Jacobs is the NAR’s “lead U.S. National Apostle.” Cindy is supposedly a modern day prophet. But I beg to differ. This woman has uttered more false prophecies than Walgreen’s has pills, proving beyond a reasonable doubt that she is no more a prophet of God than Lady Gaga! The truth is, Cindy Jacobs is a false prophet.

Considering that Perkins regularly co-hosts a radio broadcast with AFA head Tim Wildmon and Dobson, Barton, Staver and the like are key ideological allies of the organization, I wonder how they feel about being called out for associating with people "who are in the grip of evil."

The Religious Right's Merger With Apostolic Dominionism Continues Apace

Janet Porter lost her radio program after she became deeply involved in Dominionism ... but that hasn't in any way dissuaded her.  And why would it?  Dominionism is an increasingly accepted agenda within the Religious Right.

So, since losing her program, Porter has gone on to fully embrace the movement and its theology, bringing in Dominionist economists to testify on behalf of her "Heartbeat Bill" in Ohio and teaming up with Cindy Jacobs to pray that God will hand the government over to Christians.

So it is no surprise to find out that Porter will again be joining Jacobs for a "Sealed Conference" in August in Arizona where she will once again preach on "Reclaiming the Government":

But before that, Porter will be in South Carolina with Rick Joyner and Jerry Boykin for the "Oak Initiative Summit" this weekend which has just made two key additions - Alan Keyes and Tony Perkins:

I guess it should not come as a surprise to see Perkins lining up with full-blown Dominionists like Porter, Boykin, and Joyner since just last month it was announced that he'd be part of the modern-day Spartan army of Religious Right activists they were forming called "300":

Right Wing Leftovers

  • The Family Research Council announces that Ken Cuccinelli has been confirmed for the next Values Voter Summit.
  • Tim Pawlenty is officially running for president ... just not officially.
  • Hey, they found the nails used to crucify Jesus.
  • Apparently California Christians need an amendment to the state constitution guaranteeing that they are free to "share Christianity without the persecution that comes with it."  Huh?
  • Finally, Cindy Jacobs is apparently "Dr. Cindy Jacobs."  At least, that is how she introduced herself in her latest video.

Lou Engle Heading to Wasilla

A few weeks ago, we posted a video of Cindy Jacobs preaching at Sarah Palin's home church in Wasilla.  Now Lou Engle is announcing that he and The Call will be heading to Wasilla in June for an anti-abortion prayer gathering:

Anyone want to take bets as to whether this Engle event is held at Palin's home church as well?

Jacobs: "Everything That I Said Has Happened"

In January, Cindy Jacobs posted a video claiming that birds were dying in Arkansas because the United States had repealed Don't Ask, Don' Tell.

Today, she posted a new video discussing the various situations in the Middle East, the earthquake in Japan, and the looming earthquake in California which she used as an opportunity to declare that everything that she said would happen in her last video is now happening because "we have disrupted the laws of God":

David Barton Advocates Seven Mountains Dominionism

As we have been noting for nearly a year now, a theology known as "Seven Mountains" has been slowly creeping its way into "mainstream" Religious Right activism. 

Beginning with Janet Porter's "May Day for America" prayer rally on the National Mall last year, this Dominionist theology has become increasingly common place in Religious Right events, ranging from the National Day of Prayer events to Jim Garlow's "Pray and Act" 2010 election effort.

As we have explained before, Seven Mountains dominionism seeks to place Christians in control over the seven forces that shape and control our culture: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion.  The reason for this, as Lance Wallnau, the leading advocate for Seven Mountains theology, explained is that Jesus "doesn't come back until He's accomplished the dominion of nations."  And the way "dominion of nations" is accomplished is by having Christians gain control of these "seven mountains" in order to install a "virtual theocracy" overseen by "true apostles" who will fight Satan and his Antichrist agenda.

In the past we have caught people like Porter teaming up with Seven Mountains advocate Cindy Jacobs and praying for God to give Christians control over the media and government mountains. We've even found David Barton sharing the stage with Jacobs.  In fact, later this month both Barton and Garlow will be joining other Seven Mountain Dominionists/Spiritual Warriors for an event called "Government Transformation Summit For Visionary Leaders" [PDF] in Texas.

But Barton has tended to keep his ties to this movement under wraps and we had never heard him explicitly advocate Seven Mountains Dominionism ... until today on his radio program:

Barton: There's five areas that you have to be able to influence and control if you are going to take a culture and that's media, business, government, education, and pulpit.

Now, for twenty years as it turns out - I wasn't even aware of this - way back, Bill Bright from Campus Crusade, when he was still alive, Loren Cunningham, Youth With a Mission, these guys got together back at the same time and really felt like there were seven areas that had to be taken for a culture and these are the seven that they gave: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business and government. Now we've grouped some of those together and throw some together, but they said those are the seven areas you have to have and if you can have those seven areas, you can shape and control whatever takes place in nations, continents, and even the world.

Green: So it's the same idea, saying "look, every single area of the culture you need to be involved in."

Barton: That's right. Christians got to get involved. And there's a Scripture they used that came out of Isiah 2:2 and it says "Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains," so this is now called the Seven Mountain Prophecy, there's a book out by that name.

It says the Lord's house is going to be established on top of the mountains and these are the seven mountains. If you're going to establish God's kingdom, you've got to have these seven mountains and again that's family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business and government.

Now that's what we believed all along is you got to get involved in this stuff. Jesus said "you occupy 'til I come." We don't care when he comes, that's up to him. What we're supposed to do is take the culture in the meantime and you got to get involved in these seven areas.

It was just the other day that Mike Huckabee was saying that all Americans should be forced to listen to Barton's messages - at gunpoint if necessary.  

Is Barton's call to have right-wing Christians take complete control over every aspect of society the message that Huckabee had in mind?

Wagner: God Allowed Japan Earthquake Because Emperor Had Sex With The Sun Goddess

As we have noted before, C. Peter Wagner is widely regarded as the man responsible for the New Apostolic Reformation which gave rise to the self-proclaimed prophets and apostles like Lou Engle, Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, Chuck Pierce, and the other Dominionist/7 Mountain advocates who are slowly working their way into the Religious Right mainstream.

Given that Pierce, Joyner, and Jacobs have all weighed in on the recent earthquake in Japan to claim that it was an effort by God to shake the nation free of its "spiritism" and pagan ideology, it only seems logical that Wagner would also weigh in and do so in a manner that puts all the others to shame.

You see, as Wagner explains, he has been working to free Japan from this paganism for decades but has failed miserably because "the enemy has built seemingly impenetrable strongholds to prevent [God's destiny] from manifesting":

Japan's culture has been virtually uninterrupted for 3,000 years. Paganism is deeply rooted in the warp and woof of the nation. The spirits over Japan have had their way and they are not prepared to allow Christianity more than a token presence.

The most serious setback for Japan's territorial spirits came during a seven-year period following World War II. Despite a Buddhist facade, Japan's most deeply entrenched spirits are the principalities controlling Shintoism, which is a spiritualized form of nationalism. The chief visible figure employed by these dark angels is the emperor. In the popular mind, the emperor was himself a deity. But as a part of the World War II peace process, Emperor Hirohito publicly denied this status and the Japanese government agreed to separate itself officially from any religious institution, including Shintoism. General MacArthur called for thousands of Christian missionaries, many went, and Christianity grew well for what are now known as the "seven wonderful years."

For more than 30 years it appeared, in the visible, that Japan was maintaining its status quo. But in the invisible world, the dark angels began regaining their foothold. The growth of the Church slowed to a crawl. Then Hirohito died and his son, Akihito, would become the new emperor. A crucial question revolved around the Daijo-sai ceremony, the spiritual component of the traditional inauguration of the new emperor.

Now, if you know anything about Wagner, you know that he believes that it is the "Daijo-sai ceremony" that is the key to Japan's enslavement to demonic forces because, during it, the Emperor has sexual intercourse with the Sun Goddess:

Japan, as a nation, is one of the nations of the world which has consciously, openly, invited national demonization. And they do this though what’s called the Daijosai ceremony…where when a new Emperor comes in to power…And as a part of this ceremony the Emperor goes to this specially chosen…place…He eats rice that has been planted and harvested and chosen through witchcraft. And at a certain time that night the Sun Goddess visits him in person, and has sexual intercourse with the Emperor…So the emperor becomes one flesh with the sun goddess and that's an invitation for the Sun Goddess to continue to demonize the whole nation.

So, according to Wagner's logic, it only makes sense that Japan would continue to suffer unrelenting hardship and remains impenetrable to the Holy Spirit:

In the invisible world, the two ritually become one flesh and, through its supreme leader, the nation officially invites demonic control as long as he is emperor.

Unfortunately for Japan, as for Haiti, a foolish decision was made and Emperor Akihito decided to reverse his father's post World War II position and once again became, in the popular mind, "deified" through the Daijo-sai ceremony. Not only that, but the government paid the expenses of the multimillion dollar ritual over the vehement protests of the Japanese Christian leaders.

Since then, predictably, the overt participation of government officials, as national leaders, in pilgrimages and rituals connected with traditional Japanese paganism, have been on the increase.

Gingrich To Kick Off Awakening 2011 Via Invitation-Only Luncheon With Birther King Joseph Farah

The Freedom Federation's "Awakening 2011" conference is being held next week at Liberty University and I think nothing better sums up what we can be expected from the event than the fact that it kicks-off with a speech from Lila Rose followed by an invitation-only luncheon with Newt Gingrich and Birther king Joseph Farah:

In addition to Rep. Tom Price and Texas Senate hopeful Ted Cruz, the event features a panoply of right-wing participants and speakers including Matt Barber, Frank Gaffney, Harry Jackson, Robert Knight, Andrea Lafferty, Mat Staver, Rick Scarborough, Ryan Sorba, Janet Porter, and Penny Nance.

And while Cindy Jacobs is not listed on the schedule even though she participated in last year's conference, her fellow prophet Rick Joyner is:

  • Confronting the Culture: Engaging People of Faith
    • Rev. Rick Scarborough (Moderator)
    • David Brog
    • Rev. Rick Joyner
    • Cynthia Dunbar, Esq.
It is especially timely that Joyner will be discussing how to engage people of faith given that he is convinced that the earthquake in Japan is a sign that demonic Nazism is about to take over America after God destroys California.

Jacobs In Alaska, Announces Mobilization of a Half Million Intercessors to Swing 2012 Election

Pop Quiz:  What is this?

If you answered "Cindy Jacobs preaching," you get a gold star. 

But can you tell me where Jacobs is preaching?

Here's a hint: Sarah Palin

Looks familiar, does it not?  That is because Jacobs was preaching at Palin's home church, Wasilla Assembly of God, on March 3, 2011.

And what was Jacobs preaching, you ask? 

That her army of prayer intercessors was responsible for the Republican wins in the 2010 elections; so much so that they are mobilizing 500,000 such intercessors to shift this nation in the 2012 election toward righteousness and justice:

And, just as a reminder, here is Jacobs explaining earlier this year that birds were dying in Arkansas because Don't Ask, Don't Tell had been repealed:

Last Wednesday evening, Cindy Jacobs and Generals International held a "Reformation Day" pre-election prayer rally where speaker after speaker prayed that the humanistic, anti-Christ systems ruling over this nation would be broken, that the Holy Spirit would reach both President Obama and the Supreme Court and bring an end to abortion, and that Christians would rise up to take back this nation through an army of evangelical voters who will put God's man in the White House. We edited down the three hour event to this three and a half minute clip of the "highlights":  MORE >

John McCain says Colin Powell's endorsement of President Obama will turn off voters because Powell "got us into Iraq." Yes, he really said that.  Newt Gingrich's SuperPAC wants you to be very scared. Cindy Jacobs is calling on her prayer warriors to pray against Hurricane Sandy and "rebuke this storm in Jesus' name. The authority of the believer is powerful enough to shift weather patterns!" Jim Garlow's continued use of his wife's cancer as a metaphor really is rather tasteless: “My wife has advanced cancer and I am fighting for her... MORE >

There is an election coming, so that means we will be seeing various Religious Right coalitions organizing redundant prayer efforts. CitizenLink thinks a video of President Obama talking about the importance of religious liberty is really an effort to use religion as a wedge issue. Tommy Thompson says he'll make a great Senator because "who better than me, who's already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with Medicaid and Medicare?" Newt Gingrich says Obama "is like the substitute referees in the sense that... MORE >

Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs, who blamed freak bird deaths on the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and predicted that the Obama administration’s support for LGBT rights will lead to a blizzard and the exposure of a major government scandal, warned Jim Bakker last week that more disasters are coming to America thanks to President Obama’s leadership. Jacobs told Bakker that she prophesied “that God had seen decisions made from our White House that were anti-biblical and that we were going to come into the season of the greatest weather patterns and disasters...

During an interview with self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs, televangelist Jim Bakker warned that “America is under curse” and God let his protective hand of protection down to allow the September 11 attacks to occur in order “to get your and my attention.” Bakker tearfully decried legal abortion and limits on organized school prayer and the public placement of religious items like the Ten Commandments, telling viewers that now “God is weeping in Heaven.” Watch: MORE >

Last time self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs appeared on The Jim Bakker Show, the two talked about how they prophesied the September 11th attacks, warned of an imminent nuclear catastrophe and how Jacobs prevented two African coups. But when the two got together last week, Bakker did most of the “prophesying” as he recounted how “God spoke to me there’d be death by water and one day New Orleans will be under water forever,” with Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac revealing God’s judgment on the city. “There’s going to be many, many disasters, desert...

Self-described "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs appeared on the program "Power For Life With Matt Sorger" where she discussed her work as both a prophet and an intercessor for nations, revealing that "time and time again" she and her prayer warriors have managed to "avert a number of different potential bombings." In fact, Jacobs revealed that the accountant at Generals International had a dream about a terrorist attack being planned for Dallas and so the staff began to pray that the police would launch a sting operation and "it was...

Over the last year or so, we have been noting how the Family Research Council was slowly becoming more and more intertwined with various leaders within the New Apostolic Reformation movement, the collection of modern-day "prophets" and "apostles" who believe they posses the same miracle working abilities as Jesus.  NAR's public political activism has cooled since leaders had their coming-out at Rick Perry's massive prayer rally last summer, but obviously efforts to work its way into the larger Religious Right political movement continue.  Case in point, today we...
