Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs yesterday announced a new initiative, FastForward, for followers to elect “pro-biblical value candidates” and pray for “God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates.” Last year, Jacobs at a prayer rally claimed that God told her, “I am going to start targeting elections” and “if they resist who I am, I am going to move them out and I’m going to move my people in.”
In her guide for prayer warriors [pdf], Jacobs asks for people to “war against” the separation of church and state and declared Everson v. Board of Education, which held that the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause applied to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause, “one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today.” Jacobs also called on members to pray for judges who “will not legislate from the bench” and “rule morally and in the fear of the Lord.”
Determine to vote in 2012. If you have not registered, find out if it is still possible for you to do so in your state. If you have registered, plan to vote. Repent of any apathy you have had. Repent of any mindsets where you may have felt your vote didn’t matter. Repent of any religious thinking or “separation of church and state” thinking you may have had that Christians should stay out of the governmental arena. We cannot shift our nation unless we all ACT as well as PRAY!
Ask the Lord to remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from this nation’s governmental philosophy and from Believers mindsets! There is no such language in the Constitution. The wording of the Amendment is “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The intent of the Constitution’s framers was to prevent a state-run religion, such as England’s Anglicanism, headed by the King. In a letter to the Danbury Baptist association in 1802, Thomas Jefferson assured them the Constitution would not ever limit an individual’s free expression of religion, reiterating the Constitution’s intent. Jefferson’s statement was turned around by an activist court in the 1947 case, “Everson vs. Board of Education,” to mean that the framers meant to keep religion out of government. This ruling has become one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today. War against it today! Use the sword of the Lord, the Word of God, and strike it down in the spirit!
Pray for our Supreme Court. Decree that God will set judges upon the bench of our highest court that will not legislate from the bench, but who will adhere to the Constitution’s original intent. Pray that the Justices will rule morally and in the fear of the Lord. “And I will restore your judges as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning.” Isaiah 1:26a
Begin the day by praising God that the United States will become the “city set on a hill” that was envisioned by our Founders. Ask God to once again place godly elected officials in office who believe as our Founders did in this regard.
Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates. Pray that pro-biblical value candidates will be voted into office.
