Happy Anniversary!! Can you believe it's been two years since Rick Santelli ranted on CNBC from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile about the latest bailout? Little did he know, on that day, he would have provided the spark that launched one of the most powerful great awakenings in American History.
"President Obama, are you listening???", asks Rick Santelli.
But as We The People have awakened, we've realized that the problems with our government are not about one man, one administration, or one political party. We've come to realize that it's the 100 years of progressive big government, big spending, big bureaucracy, big dependency, big agency, big solution, big promises and central planning that has ripped our constitution to shreds, made our founder's original intent a distant memory and all that which makes us exceptional a mere thing of the past.
For those of you on those original conference calls that are still engaged in the fight today, I salute you. Well done, indeed. For everyone involved in some fashion or another in the tea party movement, I say Thank You, God speed, and please keep up the great work.
For everyone, I ask you to join me in praying for our nation and for those on the front lines of the battle to save our Republic. I ask that you pray these two verses as often as you can. We must put on the Armor of God, we must humble ourselves and we must turn from our wicked ways and call upon God to help us secure the blessings of Liberty He has so graciously provided.
2 Chronicles 7:14 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Ephesians 6:10-20 - The Armor of God 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 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. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
