We find ourselves in the great challenge to represent Christ’s love to the homosexual and at the same time stand against deception and the homosexual agenda that is threatening to mainstream destructive lifestyles and laws into the veins of American life and culture. Jesus modeled the proper posture and was described by the Apostle John as full of grace and truth. We must be filled with the love, compassion and mercy of Christ when ministering to the homosexual, but we must recognize the spiritual darkness behind the homosexual agenda and confront it with massive intense fasting and prayer. We pray against this agenda, by asking God to release the Kingdom culture! We ask God to (Eph 1:18) enlighten the eyes of the target youth to the knowledge of Jesus, and that He would give them wisdom and revelation in the Knowledge of God. We ask that He deliver them from evil, and lead them out of temptation and into the Father’s will for them.
It is time to raise up a nation wide prayer movement now to stand in the gap crying to God to restrain the homosexual ideology that is hostile to biblical ways and the freedoms we have been able to live in and enjoy in the 233 years of our American history. Even now in certain places christian schools are being pressed to teach pro-homosexual curriculum. Pending hate crime bills will make it extremely difficult for people simply to speak truth on this subject in the public square. In Massachusetts we are very near the point where pastors will not be able to preach biblical truth without punitive measures being taken against them.
We must win the battle against spiritual unseen powers if we are going to see freedom for the homosexual and the restraining of the ideology. 40 years ago the Stonewall Riots of New York City, marked the beginning of the homosexual revolution. 40 years later we are coming to the ripening and legal empowering of the movement. Apart from God there is no way of turning this back. We are headed the way of many European nations, but I believe the Lord wants to raise up a “Stonewall” of intercession, a prayer stand if you will, expressed in Ezekiel 22:30 “I looked for a man to stand in the gap to build up a wall before me …”. I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me “Build me a Stonewall of intercession that could hold back this giant rumbling across America.”
We are praying God would raise up houses of prayer to contend against the spiritual powers behind the ideology and to contend for an outpouring of the delivering power of Jesus that can set the homosexual, the transgender, and the porn addict free. Come take your stand with our brothers and sisters and cry out to God for a great mercy to sweep over America. -some text taken from lou engle email related to the Stonewall fast in Charlotte, NC which ended on 07-25-09
1 Cor 6:9Know all of you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 but all of you can be washed, but all of you can be sanctified, but all of you can be justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
