And so we have yet another gathering of Catholics and Evangelicals, (ala Bill Bright’s unity theory) joining with false prophets, teachers and politicians to fast and pray. The prayer and fasting for 40 days and 40 nights will be in large gathering places and broadcast on notGodtv (false prophet Wendy Alec supported and broadcast Bentley’s “Outpouring”). Once again an attempt is being made to turn America back to its Godly covenental roots/heritage/destiny. (See link above.)
Lou Engle believes that because God performed various things in 40 days or 40 years that there is a correlation between the 1960’s and this year, as there is a span of 40 years in between. (Actually, they started harping on this in 2008 because that marked a 40 year period since the “summer of love” in 1968. Well, the 40 year period has come and gone 2 years ago by my calculation. It didn’t work. But, it’s kinda sorta still 40 years, so why not keep on it, right?) It is a grave mistake to expect God to perform in a way that is against His plan or will. Irreprerable damage has been done to the faith – believers, ministires, churches and families – out of man’s expectation or imagination of “what God is doing now”.
Engle thinks our country has been in a downfall since the 60’s. Well, I have news Lou, sin existed way before that, it just became more open and free. People did drugs and had sex and were slothful way before 1968. They were just more inclined to do it behind closed doors. Besides, shortly after the beginning there was a garden…
Listen, prayer and voting are very good things and we should make our requests known to God and voice our opinions and expectations of our leaders who are in fact servants of the people. To this I will add most of them have forgotten that! But this group of people are not following the way of the Lord in dilligently seeking Him and His ways. They twist the bible to say what they want it to, they prophecy false words and mislead untold numbers. That is not a good thing for anyone regardless of the good intentions they may have or seem to have.
Jim Garlow, Chuck Colson, Mike Huckabee and Lou Engle joining forces…
Friends, we as a nation will now determine which way the door will swing. We face unprecedented challenges to three foundational principles of justice and the common good:
- The sanctity of human life in all stages and conditions
- The sacredness of marriage as the covenantal union of husband and wife
- The right to religious liberty and respect for conscience
These principles are moral treasures of our civilization. They have played indispensable roles in preserving the great experiment in republican government and ordered liberty bequeathed to us by the Founders of our Nation.
We must work tireless in all the “seven spheres of cultural influence:” (1) the home, (2) the church, (3) civil government / law / military, (4) business / technology, (5) education, (6) media, and finally (7) arts / entertainment / professional sports.
(I hadn’t realized those three items were a part of a great experiment. I thought they were given to us by God – to not murder is a commandment, marriage is between husband and wife only, and yes, America does provide the freedom to worship …but to say these are experiments…hmmm
Seven spheres means the seven mountains which spells dominionism…and you know what that means…the NAR is here again. AND see how they carved out “professional sports”. Where would America BE without football, baseball, basketball and hockey?)
Yes, yes this is all tied in with the Manhattan Declaration which they are asking all participants to sign.

I believe we would have much more success in turning this nation if people who claimed to stand for God would simply preach the gospel. Change can only happen through repentance and in following Christ. He is the only one who can change a heart. When the heart is changed so are decisions. Fasting and prayer alone will not do the job, not to mention the fact that Jesus warned against public and repetitive prayer and fasting. God gives everyone a free will to make their own life choices and He will not violate that free will regardless of all the prayers for Him to do so. It is only through Christ that we are free.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of writing on this as I’ve already done that in other articles although there is a lot going on here. It’s mostly just a head’s up to what is taking place and who again is joining forces in false doctrine. Remember dominionism taught by the NAR is a false doctrine that teaches believers Christ cannot return until they take the world over (take dominion) for His kingdom. This is accomplished using their gifts through the seven mountains of influence. There is no truth in their doctrine which truly denies the supremacy of Christ.
Pray for those who are caught up in this dangerous false teaching and blinded from seeing the truth.
