Is Prophetic Intercession The Future of The Religious Right?

In the last several posts I wrote featuring video clips from the “Convergence 2010: A Cry to Awaken A Nation” conference, I tried to note the rather new development of Religious Right activists like Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, and Janet Porter joining forces with self-proclaimed “prophetic intercessors” like Lou Engle or, in this case, Cindy Jacobs of Generals International, which hosted this particular conference.

But frankly, aside from the fervent praying and occasional speaking in tongues, nothing any of these Religious Right leaders said at this conference was all that different from the sorts of things you hear at any Religious Right conference. 

The difference in this case was the host, Cindy Jacobs and her Generals International.

And written descriptions just cannot do justice to her style of speaking and activism, which is wholly different from what we normally see at Religious Right conferences.

As such, I have put together this video of Jacobs closing out the “Convergence 2010” conference where she recounts the time she had an amazing visitation with God during which he showed her Seraphim and set her bedroom on fire, before she set about about casting out demons, lifting curses, and conducting faith healings of everything from AIDS to Hepatitis C to Glaucoma and even Cancer:

It should also be noted this sort of overlap is becoming more and more common, as both Jacobs and Engle have been invited to the upcoming Freedom Federation summit next month at Liberty University along with elected officials like Virgina Governor Bob McDonnell, VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Govs. Tim Pawlenty and Rick Perry.
