What Does Prayer Mean to You?

Sadly, I do not hear many folks talking about the movie WAR ROOM anymore, and how it changed their life! I am still on fire from that movie and the message! It changed my life! One thing I am finding about so many folks these days they jump from one thing to the next without letting anything stick to them! Meaning the knowledge from the movie WAR ROOM is forgotten, just like many sermons that Pastors give. We are a society that moves so very fast, from one thing to the next, the next event to the next church program. Many jump so fast into the next phase, they do not let God work on them. They miss the movement and knowledge of the Holy Spirit.

I encourage you to read the book pictured below, which came from the WAR ROOM movie.

Prayer, at the heart, is communicating with God. Reverently and openly. Sincerely. Interacting directly with the magnificent God of the universe who is really there. The reason a basic reminder is even needed is because, honestly, we can deceive ourselves with our own performance or forget we’re in His presence when we pray. From page 33 in chapter 5.

Always pray with your Bible and take your Bible wherever you go, even to work. I wonder how many Christians take their Bible wherever they go?

Charles Spurgeon said, “Read many good books, but live in the Bible” Are you living in the Bible? Where do you live?

Then behave like you live in the Bible, don’t leave home without it! Don’t embarrass God.

We are not electing a pastor
At the risk of angering some of you beyond reason, last night’s primary has set the stage for what many Christians have been saying-“If Donald Trump wins the nomination, I’m not voting.” Folks, there is a reality here that we must face up to. Irrespective of the who gets the Republican or Democratic nomination for President, your civic duty is to shape the world around you the best you can for Christ. The early Christians didn’t give up because they were under Roman rule. At least we have a say. And, quite frankly, not voting at all or writing someone in who hasn’t a chance, is a cop out. Tough words, I know, but we are not electing a pastor. If we were, by the condition of the church, we haven’t much to show there either.
Many have written and asked what I want you to do. It’s not what I want you to do. It’s what the Holy Spirit is telling you to do. We often are so heavenly minded, that we are not much earthly good. We live on earth today. This life we are living is the basis for how we will be judged by the Lord. He has given us the Holy Scriptures to educate us in His ways. He has sent the Holy Spirit to guide us. Trouble is, there has been so much unholy doctrine taught, so many conflicting viewpoints, so much strange fire and noise that we often cannot even discern the truth to make a decision. How many emails have you received that say “Here is the real truth about…” only to find they are nuts? Just saying.
In the lead up to Ronald Reagan’s candidacy, Christians became very active at the local political level. We became committee members, assisted in the selection of candidates, and became delegates. We not only elected Reagan, but also a Republican majority in the Senate for the first time in nearly 30 years. This all occurred because we engaged locally. But there were many, many pastors who preached against us, saying that Christians should not be involved in politics. These pastors handicap Christians by their false teachings about Romans 13:1-2, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.”
If this meant to just accept evil rulers, Peter and the Apostles would have brought upon themselves damnation by resisting the Sadducees in Acts 5:29, when they said, “We ought to obey God rather than men.” A couple of points: 1) If we don’t like the choice of candidates, we have to get involved early in the process-that’s not an option now, and 2) we are not electing a pastor-we need to choose the candidate we believe will do the best to protect ourselves and our families and preserve our freedom. To do that, you must vote, and vote for a viable candidate rather than hide behind some esoteric concept of false spirituality or haughty, but misguided, principle. This is real. Life is now. We must act here on earth.
