Just yesterday I noted that Mike Huckabee had joined Tony Perkins, Mat Staver, Pat Roberston and others in recording a message urging activists to attend the upcoming “The Call” prayer rally with Lou Engle in Sacramento, CA.
And one of the points I have been trying to emphasize in my posts about the rise of these self-proclaimed “apostles” and “prophets” like Engle within the Religious Right movement is that when they claim to be battling Satanic and demonic forces, they mean that quite literally.
And, just to demonstrate that point, here is Engle explaining that events like The Call are so important because they unleash spiritual movements in America that can break Satan’s control over our government, though which He is enacting His evil agenda:
Engle believes the anniversary meeting, which thousands are expected to attend, has the potential to turn the nation toward biblical values, as participants pray for “righteous” leaders to emerge from the midterm elections and for God to “shift the whole political system in America and the seven spheres of society.”
“There is a hill above Capitol Hill,” Engle said. “It’s God’s praying church who actually begins to influence the governments of the earth through their prayers.”
Engle makes no apologies for his political advocacy. He believes if Christians don’t influence politics, Satan will.
Prayer and preaching the gospel are the church’s primary calling, he said. “But to say don’t get involved in those high places [of government] is actually allowing our archenemy Satan to put his own people in those high places, where spiritual powers can actually control societies and release laws that actually legalize systemic evil,” Engle added.
