DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES HIRE PASTOR TO DRAW EVANGELICALS

Father God, we pray for a revival among evangelicals, that we would be rooted and grounded in Christ, in Your Word, and full of the Holy Spirit.

At least two Democrat candidates, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, are hiring “faith advisors,” and the Democratic National Committee has hired Rev. Derrick Harkins, an anti-Trump pastor who left his longtime post at Nineteenth Street Baptist Church to take a job at a controversial college in New York.

“The DNC hired former Washington, D.C. anti-Trump pastor, Rev. Derrick Harkins,” Fox News reported last month, saying he “held a similar position in 2012 and has been the senior vice president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which recently celebrated ‘rejoicing in the queerness of God.’”

Within the Democratic Party, there is a huge spectrum of deeply faithful people,” Serene Jones, president of the college, told Fox News.

She continued:

For too long, when we look at religion in America, we have associated with just politics and the religious communities that have been associated with the Republican Party and conservative politics…and there is a strong progressive Christian voice that is being spoken and lifted up and demanding to be heard.

“Aside from the pro-abortion platforms, the Democrats have also alienated religious voters by working so tirelessly to remove God from daily political activities,” Clarion News reported. “For instance, the phrase ‘so help me God’ was removed from U.S. House Committee oaths earlier this year at the insistence of Democrats.” (Excerpt from Breitbart.)

  1. Matthew 7:16a, Ye shall know them by their fruits; Galatians 5:22, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith. I don’t see the fruit of the Spirit of God in these men nor in the party they represent. I see a smokescreen in the making. I pray they will be exposed before ANYONE is sucked into their scheme.

  2. Father, I am heartbroken that some in the community of faith chose to call you what you’ve clearly called an abomination. Forgive us for the times we do not speak out against such slander. Forgive me, Lord, that I don’t have the courage to always speak for you. Give me courage and wisdom in these times that I may speak truth into darkness.

    1. Linda Todd I pray our God gives you assurance You Are Not Alone in your prayers and also are in the throne room as Wanda said! Also you are seeing the first part of Mat 10:16! Which is why I don’t give my last name! Now trust the Holy Spirit In You to pray to God for the second part! Lastly have you seen the National Prayer map listed in the menu; of all the people praying with the IFA?

      1. Tom,
        Yes I know hundreds of thousands of Americans and others across the world are praying for America. Those of us who understand the founding of this country by the Lord God Himself, realize that it’s up to us to pray to change the hearts of those who wish us harm. Just like Israel so many times, we have allowed others to try to rip the Lord away from us. We must hold strong. As in Joshua 1:9, the Lord tells Joshua, ‘Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, be strong and courageous, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.’ God gave the Israelites their promised land. For me, America is our promised land, in the name of The Lord God Almighty. He is the One who wants us to stand up for Him, and for the glorious life He’s given us in Christ Jesus. We must stand for Israel. We must stand for sanctity of life. We must stand for truth. We must stand for Christ. God will prevail. God is in control. The Israelites believed God when He asked them to turn to Him and turn from their wicked ways. We are not innocent. We must turn ourselves before we can turn others. I pray for God to reveal to me those areas of my life where I am not a light for Him, so that I can be a light for othe God is in control and God will prevail. Truth and light always prevail.

        By the way, for me, including my last name, means I am not afraid of those who come against God or against me for my faith.

        1. “When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes. I believe and I doubt, I hope and get discouraged, I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious. I am honest and I still play games. Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer.”
          To live by grace means to acknowledge your whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting your shadow side you learn who you are and what God’s grace means. As Thomas Merton put it, “A saint is not someone who is good but who experiences the goodness of God.” (As truly eternally good)
          ― Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out
          (Also we can have no fear of death while having plenty of fear of suffering)

          1. Tom, you said: “I believe and I doubt”, among other paradoxical statements. This certainly does not represent everyone. I, for one, believe in God and I do not doubt. Ever. Why? Because I know Him. I don’t just know ABOUT Him; I know HIM. He is God, the One whom I gave my life to. I gave my life to Christ and the spirit of God came into me, causing me to intimately know Him. So I have no doubts about this basic faith and fellowship with my God, my Creator.
            It would be dishonest of me to say that I doubt. God is very responsive when I ask Him things. I can attest that I ‘hear his voice and follow Him.’ John 10:27: Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me.” I can attest by experience to the truth of Jesus’ statement. This is the experience of many believers in Christ, not only my experience.

  3. Lord God we pray that you be at work in anyone; especially those in the church who doubt that this is the day of people calling black White and evil good! As we pray for ourselves to submit to the power of your Holy Spirit in us to realize our Society is truly as bad as it seems to be! So that we see it is becoming more obvious; that if God does not judge America he must apologize as being unfair to Sodom and Gomorrah!

    1. And that’s the issues with Humanity in today’s aged! Sodom and Gomorrah wasn’t under the GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD, THROUGH GOD’S SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST! You just can’t compare that. So, help us GOD!

  4. Regarding Booker and Buttegieg hiring faith advisers, only God knows what their true intentions are in doing so. I pray that it will help them both find their own relationship with Christ. Will it mean, winning the Democratic election? That is also in the hands of God.

  5. Thank you Lord for dealing with apostasy. We will see the results of your operations when we see them.
    You alone are God, you alone are sovereign. Praise your name.
