Televangelist James Robison told listeners on last week’s Tea Party Unity conference call that the country is about to witness a merger of the Religious Right and the Tea Party that will bring God’s blessing back to America.
Robison said that the Tea Party doesn’t have “the numerical support” to win elections without the social conservatives, and “God is going to do something very great” to build a new “communications stream” that will unite the conservative movement and attract a bigger audience than the Drudge Report.
After praising his fellow speaker Rafael Cruz and Tea Party Unity — which was created by right-wing pastor Rick Scarborough for the very reason of bringing Tea Party and Religious Right activists together — as “answers to prayer,” Robison said he will be working to “get the message and the truth that flows from the heart and mind of God and the wisdom of God” to activists, while making sure that it won’t be “filtered down, misrepresented and ignored by a very biased, upside-down-worldview prevailing media.”
“We are creating a communications stream, a faith and freedom communications stream that the enemy will not be able to hinder,” Robison said. “Freedom is in the process of perishing, so this communication stream will bring together the leaders of the free market and the faith community and we will create a stream hopefully that will get more traffic than Drudge does.”
Robison later revealed that he’s working to “influence the influencers” by meeting with religious figures and “free market leaders like Foster Friess and many others of that caliber,” referring to the GOP mega-donor.
“They cannot win – the whole Tea Party has got to understand this – they cannot win, they cannot change legislation, they cannot correct our nation’s perilous course without the numerical support of the faith community,” he said.
He then warned that America is currently experiencing God’s judgment: “If you go to Joel 2 you’ll find the key for today. In the first part of that chapter you see the locusts coming in as a representative of all the forces of judgment for a nation that has gone away from the wisdom and counsel of God. And those locusts don’t break step, they don’t get out of line, all of these strange bedfellows come together and they move in total unison to consume the prosperity and the productivity of the land because people have left God out.”
“I believe we’re going to see the miracle,” he said,” and I have seen enough in the leadership areas in both the faith community and the free market community to believe we can witness this miracle.”
