CCC Communiqué – May, 2016

“Christians, we are at war. Maybe it’s time we accept that fact.”

My wife brought to my attention an online article which clearly and somewhat shockingly sounds the clarion call to sleeping Christians. Matt Walsh reminds us of the Apostle Paul’s words:  “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

In case you missed it, droves of news stories have been pouring in over the last few weeks with demonstrably increasing frequency, establishing America’s direct correlation with Romans 1:18-32.  We have, nationally, effectively stripped ourselves of reasoning power, and not only called ‘evil’ ‘good,’ but even heralded that switch as noble and virtuous. (Is 5:20)

People stand in prayer after marching about a mile to the police station to protest the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August.

Brothers and sisters, now is the time for us to rise up by falling on our knees before our Lord and King, and wielding the one weapon we have been commanded to use: Prayer.  

Let us pray unto our Father:

  • To restore the crumbling moral foundation of this land
  • For the crime of abortion to cease
  • To restore to this land a Biblical view of sexuality and refuse to entertain the enemy’s lies
  • To return the fathers to their homes and be the men of God they must be
  • For Godly men and women to be elected to all levels of government
  • For His Church to awaken out of our slumber and rise to action
  • For a revival to strike this land with power from on High that will shake the gates of Hell

My fellow CCC Family, I urge you….I beg you to join me in this war.  We are at war.  Please, spend time this very day on your knees for the renewal of our hearts, and putting on the armor of God.

The time is drawing near.  His return is nearer with each passing day.  Let us pursue Him with more passion and with greater fervor than ever before.

 

Pastor Neil
