January 6, 2021 will ultimately go down as one of the saddest days in American History! The reason will vary depending on who you ask. Some will say it is because of the defiance of an American President, others will say it is because of the outcome of a stolen election, still others will say because it is the beginning of the Socialist takeover of America.
However, the reality is that when a group of thugs overrun the Capital building in the name of protest, we have stepped into a place in history that sadly will live on for decades. It is heart breaking that people were hurt, a young lady was killed, and people lived through the fear of this event. Justice must be carried out, every person involved must be prosecuted.
The reality is, we must STOP the madness! Most importantly, it is time for the Church to do what it does best, step up to its rightful place in America and become the Great Healer. It is time for the Church, first and foremost, to unite in PRAYER for the next great move of GOD! No matter your political affiliation is, your race, your socioeconomic status, or even your gender; the only thing that is going to heal America is prayer and a move of God!
We hear a lot of people quoting 2 Chronicles 7: 14 during moments like we experienced just yesterday. In the King James Bible it reads: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.”
If America is going to survive the next 50 years, let alone another 200 hundred years, we need the Christian Church to unite in prayer. We need to see a “Transformation, a Reformation, and then a Proclamation of the Gospel across America” We need to be praying for a revival to sweep the land from the “White House, to the Farm House, to the Beech House across America and from the Eastern shoreline to the West Coast, from the Northern Boarder to Southern Boarder of America."
We need to stand united at the throne room of Heaven, praying, weeping, pleading, and believing God for the Next Great Awakening, a Revival that will sweep the land with such power that men and women will fall to the ground on their faces pleading for God’s forgiveness of sin. We need to pray that pastors, chaplains, and Christian educators will stand to their feet and preach and teach the Bible as the infallible word of God, that Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the grave, and is coming back soon.
Let me be clear as a close, I don’t personally think that President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris are the best choice to lead America. I, from a Biblical point of view disagree with their position on several things. However, on January 20th they will be sworn in as President and Vice-President. As a Christian it is my job to pray for them, pray that they hear from God, and pray that they lead America as God would do. I will do this while continuing to pray for the revival that I believe God is going to use to shake America and the world.
