Washington D.C. Bully Pulpit- Don’t let them push you to do wrong
Greg, John, and Pat share about bullying but it is not what you might think. They speak about bullying that takes place from Washington DC,. When someone is bullying someone they are trying to provoke them to act out and take a swing. They do this so they can release all the pent up anger, rejection and twisted emotions in them. It has nothing to do with you. It was President Theodore Roosevelt who first coined the term bully pulpit when referring to the Whitehouse as a terrific platform from which to advocate and agenda. Up to this point this famous Bully Pulpit had been used for new tax schemes, for defending the nation, to expand national parks, to build monuments and to fight wars. BUT THERE’S A NEW BULLY IN WASHINGTON DC… who is using it to Bully American’s to GIVE UP THE CHRISTIAN GOD WE SERVE, and IT’S SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND the U. S. Constitution which the president ,congress, and the suprememe court swear to defend and acknoweldge that is their only purpose of being there.
Our leaders in Washington have poke American citizens and especially the
Church, America’s founding fathers, and America’s Constitution in the chest
so many times it can only be explained as President Theodore Rosovelt did…THEY ARE BULLYING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, using Washington as a Bully Pulpit! Don’t fall prey to Washington DC’s Bully Pulpit and act out in rage. It’s time for the church to repent and instead of hitting the streets it’s time to hit our knees. We are seeing our nation being turned over. We need to turn back to God and follow the ways of those who have gone before us like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr who stood up for what’s right in the right way before God and men. He was willing to lay down his life for the next generation.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Gideon rise up: stand up for God and for Israel
Greg, John, and Pat share regarding Gideon in the Bible. He was a man that was trying to earn a living in the midst of strife filled people when God called him. Gideon was called a mighty man of valor, (even though he was chosen because he was the weakest and less likely) so he could begin to do something where God can show himself mighty. It’s time for God’s people to rise up and join the flanks of Gideon’s army around the world. It’s time to stand for God and for Israel. Some of those who are rising up are in International House of Prayer where they release prophetic worship. You can listen in this segment to a prophetic song and rap regarding Jacob, Israel, – “Jacob where are you”. It is a very encouraging prophetic release about what God is doing. Join Gideon’s Army. Be a part of this spiritual army that hears what God is saying, and does exactly what he tells them to do.
