Dominionists in Search of Warriors: More from FRC - Cindy Jacobs 2012 Kickoff Rally

We have been reporting on last week’s Gathering of Eagles in Washington, D.C. where the Family Research Council teamed up with “Apostle” Cindy Jacobs to launch a prayer campaign designed to influence the 2012 elections. 

The event was vivid evidence of the Religious Right’s willingness to embrace the radical dominionists of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).  The Family Research Council is probably the most prominent political group on the Religious Right; its Values Voter Summit attracts Republican presidential candidates, congressional leaders, and other officials.  FRC is teaming up with proponents of politics as spiritual warfare against demons who control Washington, D.C. and other cities.  FRC and NAR leaders have common political goals (defeating President Obama, opposing LGBT equality, etc.) and a shared disdain for the separation of church and state.

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins didn’t show, but the group’s chaplain and national prayer director Pierre Bynum represented FRC, asking for “miracles” during the election year prayer project and “joy” in November.  Bynum recounted God’s instructions to Moses, through his father-in-law, regarding the kind of men he should select as leaders (men who are capable, who fear God, who love truth, and who hate dishonest gain).  Then Bynum spoke wistfully about a time when he says there was a clear religious test for public office -- something explicitly forbidden in the Constitution.

…used to be you couldn’t hold public office in America unless you believed in Jesus Christ, and also believed not only in Jesus Christ but in a future destiny of rewards and punishment for people – you had to believe in a heaven and a hell to be elected for public office in the United States.

But Bynum, and Cindy Jacobs herself, were just the warm-up crew for “teaching apostle” Dutch Sheets, a leader in the New Apostolic Reformation.  Sheets’s keynote was part lecture and part battle cry, structured around what he portrayed as two aspects of the church – the oikos – which represents the church as family – and the ekklesia, which he says is the church as legislative body, as God’s government on earth.  His thesis is that the American church is too caught up in pastoral care and taking care of individuals and congregations – the oikos – and not nearly concerned enough with their responsibility to legislate, govern, and manage the earth in partnership with god. 

Sheets blames that on Satan, who stole from people the concept of being an ekklesia , a “nation-discipling, ambassadorial, earth-stewarding extension of his kingdom.”   Satan, it turns out, also had some help from King James, sponsor of the beloved 1611 English translation of the Bible.  Sheets says King James was uncomfortable with people thinking of themselves as a government (“kind of like our government that is trying to sell us separation of church and state”) and so he instructed his translators to use the word “church” when translating ekklesia.

Sheets is out to change the emphasis on the "family" side of church. He says he’s looking for soldiers and warriors who understand the commission in Matthew 28 to disciple the nations as a grant of authority to be partners with God.  “Disciple, rule, manage the earth. Make it look like heaven.” This is not a new concept, he says, but “a renewing of the Genesis mandate to manage our home -- and make this part of the kingdom look and think like the kingdom of heaven.”  In fact, Sheets said, the earth itself is “groaning” for the sons of God to exercise their proper dominion and authority, saying that if they don’t, it doesn’t rain when it’s supposed to rain and crops don’t produce.

He was not implying “that we’re going to take over everything and rule the earth completely for the Lord,” he said. “But we’re supposed to try.  It is our commission….There’s no insinuation here that we’re going to take over everything, but our assignment until he comes, is to bring his kingdom rule into the earth so that our region looks like heaven again.” According to Sheets, the church as ekklesia was meant to “divide and conquer” and, pointing to Harry Jackson in the front row, said, “it gets a little divisive when you try to rise up and save marriage, doesn’t it?”

Sheets repeatedly mocked “little sheepies” – people focused on the caring and pastoral work of the church (while insisting he wasn’t demeaning that work) – and called for warriors, saying “I’m trying to raise up an army!”   In his final prayer, he denounced as lazy, self-centered, narcissistic sheep those Christians who don’t register to vote because they don’t want to serve on jury duty, and asked God to “raise up kingdom warriors that are ready to do whatever it takes to bring forth your kingdom rule in the earth.”

Harry Jackson and Apostles Waging Spiritual Warfare in Maryland

When we last saw Bishop Harry Jackson, he and Cindy Jacobs and others were gathered at a church in Maryland raising money for the fight against marriage equality in Maryland and preparing to wage spiritual warfare against "the ruling principality over this region that has created perversion, collusion and division" in legalizing marriage equality in Washington DC.

Today, Jackson tweeted a link to a recent sermon he delivered "on the role of the Apostle in today's culture" that was tied to this same issue.  Jackson, who considers himself to be a modern-day apostle, discussed his role in fighting gay marriage in DC, explaining that he really did not want to get involved even though God had ordered him to do so.  As such, Jackson challenged God to provide him with the money and resources he would need to take on this issue and said he'd need a large donation as proof within the next 36 hours.  When he work up the next morning, he checked his email and learned that someone had sent him a donation for $50,000 overnight.

The point, Jackson explained, is that God has made preparations for his agenda well in advance and that people just need to do as God commands and will find that everything they need is already put in place.  As such, God made preparations for the fight against marriage equality in Maryland "before the foundation of the world."  Jackson went on to explain that if anyone is "crazy enough" to try and stop apostles like Jackson from carrying out God's will, those enemies have "doomed themselves to spiritual defeat" with the end result being that "they have just signed over all their stuff to you":

Jacobs: Elect Right-Wing Politicians…Or Else

Cindy Jacobs revealed her prophecy of what will happen to the United States in 2012 in an email to members yesterday following her meeting with the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, a group which includes C. Peter Wagner, Lou Engle and Harry Jackson, among others. She said God told her that 2012 will be a “‘do-or-die’ year for the country” and the “presidential election cycle will determine where we stand as a nation.” Jacobs goes on to say that pastors will begin to “thunder from the pulpits and not compromise scripture” by challenging politicians who are “standing in the place of the ‘accuser of the brethren,’” or Satan.

According to Jacobs, right-wing Christians will be victims of the “liberal media” and “hate crimes” as “Satan fights back with great wrath,” but in the end “God is going to ‘blow away’ the covering of some people and reveal the truly righteous and conservative.” However, she warns that if Americans do not support such conservative politicians and “throw off the shackles of abortion, poverty, pornography, and sexual sins of all kinds, including homosexuality,” there will be a “great shaking” and the U.S. will be punished just like Europe and Muslim countries for “God will use this season to uproot the anti-Christ spirit”:

The Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders met in late November to seek a word of the Lord for the coming year, as they have since 1999. Due to world-wide shaking, this was probably the most sobering council gathering to date. Many prophets around the world believe that the United States must make a major shift toward reformation in 2012 and that it will be a "do-or-die" year for the country to be re-established on the course of becoming the "city set on a hill" envisioned by our Founders.

Twelve in scripture represents government. This presidential election cycle will determine where we stand as a nation. The United States has already lost a measure of its greatness but, without a shift, will lose even more in the coming days. In the Word for 2011, we felt it would either be a "tipping point year" or the year of the "perfect storm". Internationally, this seems to have been very accurate, as it was quite literally the perfect storm for Japan, much to our sorrow.

However, there was a sense that 2011's shaking was nothing like we'll see in the coming world-wide shaking. In the coming season, the whole Body of Christ must find her voice and authority in the nations of the earth and learn to "occupy" until He comes. The Council does not believe, however, that the end of the world will come in 2012, as some predict.



There is a coming shift where the Body of Christ will rise up as the "ekklesia" or legislative authority. Many pastors will throw off the bondages of political correctness and find their voice. Preachers will thunder from the pulpits and not compromise scripture. This will cause many politicians to realize that they have gone too far by standing in the place of the "accuser of the brethren" and the fear of the Lord will fall upon many.



Counter-attacks against reformers will be fierce, as Satan fights back with great wrath. This will happen in the media, but those who attack will find themselves under fire as God takes up the battle. Out of this will arise the ekklesia as a shining light that cannot be shaken!

Do not be intimidated by these attacks and you will win. The church will find her voice. The liberal media will particularly come against those who are pro-life and pro-biblical defense of marriage. Hate crimes will be tolerated and called acts of justice.



Europe is going to shake, shake, shake. The EU, who felt they could leave God out of their government and even imprison pastors for preaching the gospel, is going to be dealt with by God, Himself. In the midst of the shaking, God is going to awaken the church as never before seen in history. Other nations such as Russia and parts of Asia will shake as well. In some nations, dictators will topple who have seemingly had such a deep hold on their nations that they have been considered immovable.

Many nations will experience rioting in the midst of the economic shakings. God will use this season to uproot the anti-Christ spirit, as many who were formerly favorable to "isms", such as Islam, will see it for what it truly is and turn to Christ. Turkey and Egypt will try to intimidate Israel. Again, the Lord spoke to us that we must stand with Israel.



In the United States elections, God is going to "blow away" the covering of some people and reveal the truly righteous and conservative. We are calling for a year of prayer and fasting for the nation. The United States has one year to shift or be seriously shaken.



Lou Engle puts it this way, "In the dark hours before dawn, the youth begin to collect. The ground that was dry before now sparkles as far as the eye can see. It is the enemies' worst nightmare to go to sleep, only to awake the next morning surrounded by an army that materialized out of thin air! What had been an empty field is now filled with soldiers whose weapons glint in the sunrise. Literally overnight, an army of devoted young people is going to arise out of this present darkness. This vast youth army is already mobilizing. Invisible now - Invincible later."

Cindy Jacobs adds, "This is God's breaker-of-the-dawn army! Fresh troops for the battle, burning with holiness and fiery with passion for the Lord! They are beautiful in holiness, and have the anointing to throw off the shackles of abortion, poverty, pornography, and sexual sins of all kinds, including homosexuality."

Gathering of Eagles Prays for Ex-Gays to 'Blitz' the Media and Defeat the 'Homosexual Agenda'

Jeff Wright of the National Prayer Embassy joined Cindy Jacobs of Generals International, Pierre Bynum of the Family Research Council, Dutch Sheets and Harry Jackson at Tuesday’s “Gathering of Eagles” prayer rally, where he called for the Religious Right to push back against the “homosexual agenda” and for the media to give a greater voice to “ex-gays.” Wright claimed that opponents of marriage equality face a media “blackout” and condemned churches, such as St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington D.C., for supporting equal rights for gays and lesbians.

He said that God used “the Bachmann campaign, the testimony of her husband,” to bring the ex-gay issue to light (Marcus Bachmann’s clinic practiced discredited reparative therapy) and while leading the audience to pray in tongues, Wright called God have the ex-gay movement “blitz” the media in order “to get promotion and favor in the media of all kinds so that our culture can catch the vision.”

At the event, Jacobs also prophesied that God would send a blizzard to reverse the Obama administration’s LGBT rights initiative and Jackson led the church in spiritual warfare against the Queen of Heaven, which he said was the demonic force behind the push for marriage equality “perversion” in Maryland. 

Watch:

Now Senator Brownback at a prayer meeting a few years said ‘we’re winning the pro-life war but we’re losing the pro-traditional marriage war’ because there’s been those mountains that own the culture and media, there’s been a blackout of the pro-traditional marriage view and a blitz of the homosexual-promotion. So lately, in fact I spent a year going to church with President Bush down here at St. John’s, the President’s church, and one week we got a newsletter from the Bishop saying it would be a sin for us not to ordain homosexuals, it would be a sin for us not to perform homosexual weddings because we would be abandoning our homosexual brethren. That showed me how to pray, that’s the road to hell paved with good intentions. I believe that people, like Jesus said, those who are pushing the homosexual agenda are doing the work of God, and I believe that the people who are promoting the homosexual agenda believe they are doing what God wants them to do to be nice to homosexuals and to help them in their pain, it’s the best they know. They have no revelation that God can change people by His power.

That’s why—what’s God’s done through the Bachmann campaign, the testimony of her husband, has been so powerful and answered our prayer. Lately, I’ve been praying that God will help, and this will be at the primary, center of the Hollywood prayer tour this year next month, that God will help the ex-homosexuals who have been delivered by the power of God to get promotion and favor in the media of all kinds so that our culture can catch the vision, that people can change lives.

I want you to pray with me now: Father we just thank You tonight, we receive agreement Lord, for that blackout of the media to be broken just like it was 30 years ago on the pro-life issue, and for it to be replaced with a sudden reversal, a blitz come forward from other creative ideas Ted Baehr’s friends, those in Hollywood, movie, TV, New York. Father, we thank you that your saving, your witnessing, I sense that are out there right now, we just give out our faith to there’s right now, those ex-homosexuals who have been delivered by the power of Jesus Christ, that need that platform of promotion through the media to let their people catch the vision so that multitudes can go free.

Cindy Jacobs Prophesies Obama 'Cover-up,' Prays for Religious Right Leaders

During Tuesday’s prayer event hosted by the Family Research Council and Generals International, Cindy Jacobs read and endorsed a prophecy by Sam Brassfield, the very same “prophet” who worked with Jacobs in prophesying that Interstate-35 is a “Highway of Holiness” that will bring Christian revival, declines in drug and alcohol abuse and gays leaving homosexuality. According to the prophecy, God will use “blizzard conditions” to “freeze the plans of the enemies” by erasing the Obama administration’s global LGBT rights initiative and that “a great cover-up is about to be exposed concerning Obama and the White House”:

Jacobs later prayed against the supposed media “blackout” of anti-gay activists and the separation of church and state. She also asked to strengthen and amplify the voices of Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Bishop Harry Jackson, Maryland Marriage Alliance spokesman Derek McCoy, and right-wing pseudo historian David Barton, then called upon the Lion of Judah to “shake your mane over Washington and roar!’

Watch:

We decree a free press. We decree that their righteousness will come into the media realm. We decree in the name of Jesus that the separation of church and state and the blackouts, allowing righteous people to say what we really believe, Father we pull that down and we decree now that we will have our First Amendment right as Christians will be maintained but we can speak in the media on biblical defense of marriage, Lord strengthen Bishop Harry, Lord strengthen Tony Perkins, Lord strengthen David Barton, strengthen Derek McCoy and these others that are speaking up. We decree, you will give them a loud voice. And finally, Lord, you showed me that you, the Lion of Judah were about to stand up and shake your mane over Washington and roar! So Lion of Judah, shake your mane and roar! Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar!

Harry Jackson Brings Down 'The Queen of Heaven' Behind Same-Sex Marriage 'Perversion'

Bishop Harry Jackson has become a favorite of Religious Right groups such as the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage and is always ready to shill for the latest anti-gay or pro-corporate cause. As a favorite of both the traditional Religious Right groups and the “prophets” and “apostles” of the New Apostolic Reformation—Jackson has openly embraced NAR’s Seven Mountains Dominionism mantra—it was only fitting that Jackson made a surprise appearance at last night’s event, “A Gathering of Eagles,” hosted by the FRC and NAR prophetess Cindy Jacobs’ Generals International.

Jackson, who led the unsuccessful effort to defeat marriage equality in Washington D.C. and is now leading the fight against marriage equality to Maryland, called on people to pray against “The Enemy”—Satan—whom he said is behind gay rights.

Jackson said that Washington D.C. and Maryland are facing problems because of the Queen of Heaven, which NAR founder C. Peter Wagner and Jacobs believe to be the demonic force with power over Roman Catholicism, Islam and other faiths. Wagner even wrote a whole book on the subject, Confronting the Queen of Heaven, and along with Jacobs was involved with a spiritual warfare expedition called Operation Ice Castle on Mount Everest, where the Queen of Heaven allegedly resides. They gloated that the expedition led to the deaths of Mother Theresa and Princess Diana, in addition to the “earthquake [that] destroyed the Basilica of Assisi.”

He urged people at the church to pray against “the power of the Queen of Heaven, the ruling principality over this region that has created perversion, collusion and division.” Jackson called the legalization of same-sex marriage “an assault” and said “The Enemy wants it to be a legacy, or a seed that is planted in this generation that corrupts, perverts and pollutes” society. He then led the congregation in praying in tongues, and said “we agree together that the Queen of Heaven has no authority over Maryland” and that they will bring down the Queen of Heaven who led to the “perversion of doctrine, perversion of morals and perversion of ethics in D.C.”

Jacobs later asked people to fund Jackson’s campaign against same-sex marriage, and as people left money on the altar Jacobs asked God to “multiply” the finances of his campaign.

Dominionism on Parade at FRC-Cindy Jacobs 2012 Launch

As Kyle and Brian have reported, the Family Research Council is teaming up with "apostle" Cindy Jacobs' Generals International in a major push to influence the 2012 elections. In Washington, DC, last night, the FRC, Jacobs and other “apostles” affiliated with the New Apostolic Reformation launched “Fast Forward,” a year-long “prayer and action” campaign designed to influence the GOP caucuses and primaries as well as the November presidential election.  The launch event, “A Gathering of Eagles,” was held at a Baptist church in northwest Washington. It featured plenty of prophecy and lots of rhetoric about the 2012 elections as war – a spiritual battleground against demons, marriage equality, and the Obama administration.  

We are sorting through video and will be posting highlights and analysis over the next couple of days, but the entire three-plus hours should be required viewing for any reporter or pundit who has downplayed the goals or influence of Christian dominionists in American politics.  Jacobs said the Lord had told her that 2012 is the “do or die” year for bringing America back to a “biblical worldview.”  She “decreed” that separation of church and state would be pulled down.  Jacobs was joined by the Family Research Council’s Pierre Bynum, who spoke wistfully about a time in America when you couldn’t hold public office without believing in Jesus Christ, heaven, and hell.   

It featured Jacobs and others demanding that angels deliver Bishop Harry Jackson the half-million dollars he said he needs to defeat marriage equality in Maryland.  But the evening was dominated by Dutch Sheets, another NAR apostle, whose presentation focused on the need for Christians to get away from a sheep-like focus on pastoral care, and start becoming an army of warriors prepared to take their rightful dominion and rule the earthly part of God’s kingdom.

Just a taste – more to come.

FRC Teams with Cindy Jacobs to Target 2012 Elections

Last week, Cindy Jacobs was at Chuck Pierce's church in Texas "giving the word for 2012" where she related several other miracles that she has performed, much like how she once reversed a hysterectomy.

Speaking last week, Jacobs warned that while God had urged them to prepare for crisis, God will also provide them with all the provisions that they need and recounted, for example, the time that she, Chuck Pierce, and Dutch Sheets managed to feed three thousand people with just three loaves of bread and still have bread left over. 

She then related a more recent example where she and her husband Mike when to the bank to deposit $13,000, which miraculously increased by $5,000 when it was counted by the tellers:

As Brian noted last week, Jacobs latest project is a prayer and mobilization effort aimed at electing "pro-biblical value candidates." She is currently in Washington, DC to kick off this effort where she will be joined tonight by representatives of the Family Research Council, including FRC president Tony Perkins:

Cindy Jacobs Unveils Election Initiative to 'Remove the Lie of Separation of Church and State'

Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs yesterday announced a new initiative, FastForward, for followers to elect “pro-biblical value candidates” and pray for “God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates.” Last year, Jacobs at a prayer rally claimed that God told her, “I am going to start targeting elections” and “if they resist who I am, I am going to move them out and I’m going to move my people in.”

In her guide for prayer warriors [pdf], Jacobs asks for people to “war against” the separation of church and state and declared Everson v. Board of Education, which held that the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause applied to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause, “one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today.” Jacobs also called on members to pray for judges who “will not legislate from the bench” and “rule morally and in the fear of the Lord.”

Determine to vote in 2012. If you have not registered, find out if it is still possible for you to do so in your state. If you have registered, plan to vote. Repent of any apathy you have had. Repent of any mindsets where you may have felt your vote didn’t matter. Repent of any religious thinking or “separation of church and state” thinking you may have had that Christians should stay out of the governmental arena. We cannot shift our nation unless we all ACT as well as PRAY!



Ask the Lord to remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from this nation’s governmental philosophy and from Believers mindsets! There is no such language in the Constitution. The wording of the Amendment is “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The intent of the Constitution’s framers was to prevent a state-run religion, such as England’s Anglicanism, headed by the King. In a letter to the Danbury Baptist association in 1802, Thomas Jefferson assured them the Constitution would not ever limit an individual’s free expression of religion, reiterating the Constitution’s intent. Jefferson’s statement was turned around by an activist court in the 1947 case, “Everson vs. Board of Education,” to mean that the framers meant to keep religion out of government. This ruling has become one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today. War against it today! Use the sword of the Lord, the Word of God, and strike it down in the spirit!

Pray for our Supreme Court. Decree that God will set judges upon the bench of our highest court that will not legislate from the bench, but who will adhere to the Constitution’s original intent. Pray that the Justices will rule morally and in the fear of the Lord. “And I will restore your judges as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning.” Isaiah 1:26a

Begin the day by praising God that the United States will become the “city set on a hill” that was envisioned by our Founders. Ask God to once again place godly elected officials in office who believe as our Founders did in this regard.

Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates. Pray that pro-biblical value candidates will be voted into office.

Right Wing Watch: The Year in Video

With the end of the year approaching, we decided to take a look back through the hundreds of videos we had posted this year and highlight twelve of our favorites from the past twelve months. 

Here are our choices, in chronological order:

  • Cindy Jacobs claiming that birds were dying in Arkansas because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

  • Alan Keyes calling for the impeachment of President Obama grounds that the international interventions in Libya and the Ivory Coast were done to establish a "precedent" in case Obama were to lose his reelection bid, allowing the international community to intervene militarily in the US to keep him in office.

  • Jerry Boykin explaining that the 2008 economic collapse was part of a plot by George Soros and the Council on Foreign Relations order to help Barack Obama win the election and install a Marxist, one-world government.

  • Rep. Vicky Hartzler declaring that letting gays get married was just like giving a three-year old child a driver's license.

  • Rod Parsley pretending to drink shots, smoke a bong, and dancing around in a fat suit.

  • Lou Engle proclaiming that the massive tornado in Joplin, Missouri was God's punishment for the sin of abortion.

  • Mike Bickle warning that Oprah Winfrey is a harbinger of the Antichrist.

  • John Benefiel warning that the Statue of Liberty is actually a demonic idol.

  • Pat Robertson suggesting that the East Coast earthquake which cracked the Washington Monument was a sign from God.

  • Bryan Fischer calling for the criminalization of homosexuality.

  • Kirk Cameron failing his own history lesson.

  • David Barton asserting that politics is actually a spiritual battle against demonic forces.

How Cindy Jacobs Reversed a Hysterectomy

The November 21 episode of Cindy and Mike Jacobs' "God Knows" program was called "Filled With Power" and dedicated to discussing what it is like to be "filled with the Holy Spirit's power."

Much of the program was dedicated to Cindy talking about her own electrifying experiences being filled with the Holy Spirit and how, the first time she sought to channel the power, it knocked her off her feet and into her bathtub. 

The discussion then moved on to how she has been able to use this healing power to cure all sorts of maladies, particularly barrenness, including one time when her prayers "completely replaced everything" for a woman who had had a full hysterectomy, resulting in her pregnancy:

Right Wing Leftovers

  • The Tea Party, right-wing activists, and corporate interests are positively thrilled with the administration of Gov. Sam Brownback.
  • Looks like Ken Ham's Noah's Ark theme park is running into a bit of financial trouble.
  • The next Oak Initiative Summit will feature Rick Joyner, Cindy Jacobs, Jerry Boykin, Janet Porter, Lance Wallnau, and others.
  • Bill Dononhue says that "secularists cannot survive without parasitically feeding off Christmas [and are] thus giving us Christians a back-handed compliment."
  • Finally, the AFA 's Tim Wildmon defends Christmas by asserting that "if Jesus Christ had never been born, there would be no United States of America."

Bachmann, Gingrich and Santorum to Participate in Forum hosted by Radical Anti-Choice Activists

Republican presidential candidiates Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have signed on for a “Presidential Pro-Life Forum” hosted by Personhood USA and moderated by Iowa conservative radio personality Steve Deace. The three candidates along with Rick Perry have already announced their support for personhood laws.

Personhood USA wants abortion and even common forms of birth control banned without exception, and personhood laws may even outlaw in-vitro fertilization and the treatment of problem pregnancies. The group launched unsuccessful referendums in Colorado and Mississippi, and has characterized President Obama as the “Angel of Death” and likened opponents to Nazis.

The other organizations listed as hosts of the forum are just as radical, if not more so.

The Call is led by Lou Engle, who has claimed that legal abortion may lead to civil war and is responsible for the Joplin tornado. Engle has also used his The Call prayer rally to bolster Ugandan legislation that would criminalize and in some cases give the death penalty for homosexuals. Moreover, Engle has compared gay rights to Nazism, advocated for Seven Mountains dominionism, and said that both gays and Muslims are demonic.

Another organization hosting the forum is the Oak Initiative, a project of South Carolina pastor Rick Joyner, who has argued that God will imminently destroy California, Hurricane Katrina was God’s judgment for homosexuality, “extremist Islam” is God’s judgment for “perversions” and “abortions,” and that very soon “God’s judgment is going to come upon Hollywood.” Joyner also believes that President Obama may be a Muslim and that Muslims are trying to take control of Michigan, school textbooks and Christianity. Like Engle, Joyner is a proponent of Seven Mountains dominionism.

Both Engle and Joyner are closely affiliated with the New Apostolic Reformation, which believes that God is raising up modern day apostles and prophets, and another cosponsor, the Freedom Federation, includes the NAR groups Generals International, led by the self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs, and Harvest International Ministries of self-proclaimed apostle Che Ahn.

Three Republican candidates for the nation’s high office including Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Senator Rick Santorum, and Speaker Newt Gingrich have confirmed their participation in the Presidential Pro-Life Forum on Tuesday, December 27, from 8:00 to 9:30 pm CST. The national tele-town hall and radio simulcast will be hosted by Personhood USA and their partner organizations: National Hispanic Christian Leadership Coalition, Liberty Counsel, Bott Radio Network, Freedom Federation, Frederick Douglass Foundation, Champion the Vote, Oak Initiative, The Call, Georgia Right to Life, Rock for Life, and Iowa Right to Life. An invitation has been extended to the remaining GOP presidential candidates.

The 90-minute pro-life tele-town hall will feature the candidates discussing their views on the rights of the preborn and other issues of great importance to pro-life voters. Pro-life groups around the nation are inviting their members to attend. Callers will have an opportunity to ask questions via email and give instant feedback to thoughts and ideas shared.

Nationally-syndicated radio host Steve Deace, whose influence in the Iowa Caucuses has been highlighted by numerous national media outlets, will broadcast the event live on his Salem Network program. Last week, four candidates, Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, and Gov. Rick Perry, signed Personhood USA’s Personhood Republican Candidate Pledge, declaring their intentions to stand with President Ronald Reagan in supporting “the unalienable personhood of every American, from the moment of conception until natural death.”

“We’re pleased to see the candidates standing for the rights of every person to live, love, and be loved. The time has come to end the 40-year reign of the abortion industry, once and for all,” said Keith Mason, President of Personhood USA. “This is an opportunity for everyone who understands that ‘all men are created equal’ to hear from the candidates their plans to recognize the most fundamental rights of every human being, no matter their age. Come, take advantage of this interactive and important event, and be a voice for the voiceless.”

The Deepening Ties Between Spiritual Warriors and Anti-Islam Activists

Back in 2007, Cindy Jacobs set about creating the United States Reformation Prayer Network after God told her "about a new prayer movement that would arise to 'Possess the Gates in 2008.'" Since then, USRPN has "been at work building a network in all fifty states" in order to reach "the goal that God has given us ... to join 500,000 intercessors praying for reformation and to see a prayer saturated nation!"

Since we never tire of chronicling how spiritual warfare activists like Jacobs are making inroads and connections to the more "mainstream" Religious Right movement, we felt obligated to highlight this latest USRPN update from Jacobs in which she reveals that she has now started working with Andrea Lafferty and her anti-gay, anti-Islam hate group, the Traditional Values Coalition:

Several months ago, I had the privilege of befriending Andrea Lafferty, President of the Traditional Values Coalition. Just a few weeks ago, we were honored to have had Andrea and her husband Jim serve as guest speakers during the USRPN/HAPN National Leadership Gathering in Oklahoma City.

Jim and Andrea delivered an incredibly eye-opening presentation and call to intercession and action concerning the encroachments of Islam in America.

During their presentation, briefed us concerning her attempts obtain entry into an upcoming closed-door meeting of the US State Department with the Oranization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Washington, DC, and requested that we cover her in prayer.

These meetings focused on “negotiating how American understandings of free speech and religious liberties can be tailored to accommodate the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in an effort to prevent what Imam Feisal Rauf has already claimed as “libel”“. Andrea also disclosed that in previous OIC meetings, Secretary Clinton has discussed using “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to coerce and Talibanize Americans into refraining from statements critical of Islam”.

...

Let’s join together to intercede for protection over Jim and Andrea Lafferty and for continued open doors to these very critical meetings, events and other sources of information. We need their eyes and ears to help steer our intercession for the nation.

Please lift up Andrea and Jim Lafferty and the Traditional Values Coalition in your prayer continually, as they are on the front lines of battle to preserve our nation’s Biblical values.

So continues the trend of merging anti-Islam activism with prophetic spiritual warfare that we noted several month ago when Rick Joyner began working with Frank Gaffney.

Cindy Jacobs Warns of Satan's Grip in 'Ungodly' Education System

Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs told participants of the Prophetic Marketplace Conference that the public education system has Satanic origins because John Dewey, who led the development of progressive education, was a signatory of the Humanist Manifesto. Jacobs said that God told her to “go look up the Humanist Manifesto” to learn about who is instructing the people of America and the entire world. “I began to study this and I began to see that there was something desperately wrong because since 1933 the educational systems of the world had been totally diluted, deceived, coopted and taken over by this ungodly system,” Jacobs explained. She concluded that Satan “founded humanism” in the Garden of Eden, which now, because of John Dewey, has taken over public education.

What Once Was Lost, But Now Is Found

A little over a year ago, our first YouTube channel was shut down and we resigned ourselves to living without several great videos we had gathered over the years and used for previous posts. 

But today we received news that our account had been reinstated and reactivated and so, to celebrate, we are going to post a few of our favorite videos that we thought we'd never see again:

  • This 2007 "700 Club" segment on how the I-35 corridor was shutting down porn shops and strip clubs and freeing gays from homosexuality was the first recorded appearance of Cindy Jacobs here on RWW.
  • The opening number from the 2007 "Values Voter Debate" in which a choir re-worked the words to "God Bless America" to reflect the Religious Right's agenda, renaming it "Why Should God Bless America?"
  • Miss USA Runner-Up Carrie Prejean speaking at the Values Voter Summit in 2009, explaining that though "even though I didn't win the crown that night, I know that the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in Heaven for me."
  • Randall Terry hosting a press conference following the murder of Dr. George Tiller in which he says that Tiller "reaped what he sowed" ... and then asked if anyone in the press wanted to buy him lunch.
  • Janet Porter speaking at the Generals International's "Convergence 2010: A Cry to Awaken A Nation" in which she prayed for God to give Christians control over the media.

We are going to continue to post new videos on our RWWBlog account on YouTube, but are thrilled to have recovered the hundreds of older videos from our original account that we thought he had lost and just wanted to celebrate.

Will Matt Barber Take Janet Mefferd to Task for Her Anti-Dominionist Activism?

As we noted in our earlier post, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber joined Janet Mefferd to rail against the Obama administration for attempting to defend the rights of gays and lesbians abroad. But Barber’s appearance on Mefferd’s radio program was notable for another reason. Mefferd has used her show to speak about the dangers of dominionism, while Barber claims that dominionism does not exist and anyone who worries about it is “no different than 9/11-truthers, global-warmers or Holocaust-deniers.”

As we’ve noted, many of the dominionists’ biggest critics are other conservative Christians, including Mefferd, who invited Robert Bowman of the Institute for Religious Research to discuss the movement on her program and the ties between dominionists and Rick Perry’s The Response prayer rally. On the program, Mefferd and Bowman outlined dominionists’ beliefs, the New Apostolic Reformation and the “Seven Mountains” ideology, warned against Christians participating in events like The Response that are affiliated with dominionist leaders and groups, and claimed that traditional Religious Right groups working with dominionists represented an unfortunate and “strange turn of events” for the conservative movement.

One group that has worked with dominionists includes Barber’s Liberty Counsel, who sponsored the “2010 Sovereignty and Dominion conference - Biblical Blueprints for Victory!” with American Vision, and hosted figures associated with the dominionist movement including Lou Engle, Cindy Jacobs and Rick Joyner at their Awakening conference.

But since Mefferd is actively criticizing the dominionist movement, surely Barber will include her with the likes of Rachel Maddow, Michelle Goldberg and RWW’s own Kyle Mantyla, whom Barber called out in an article attacking people who, just like Mefferd, are speaking out against dominionism:

Now, you may laugh. You may think these anti-Christian “Dominioners” like Maddow, Goldberg and Mantyla – these fearless progressives risking all to sound the alarm on the rising threat of Christian Dominionism – are just a bunch of liberal, tinfoil hat-wearing kooks.

You might believe they’re merely a left-wing gaggle of tattooed, body-pierced pot-brownie pies in pajamas, no different than 9/11-truthers, global-warmers or Holocaust-deniers.

Oh, you may suppose these liberal Dominioners – daring beyond measure – are simply a batty band of anti-Christian bigots and Daily-Kos-, MSNBC-types looking to smear Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and other GOP presidential hopefuls as a bunch of clandestine theocrats bent on Christian world domination.

Maybe Barber will next time use his platform on The Janet Mefferd Show not to attack gays and lesbians but instead to chastise Mefferd for investigating and warning against dominionism.

PFAW Edit Memo: The Response: Rick Perry Jockeys For The Fringe Vote

On August 6, Texas Governor Rick Perry will host The Response, a massive rally in Houston that's being billed as a "a non-denominational, apolitical Christian prayer meeting." But one look at the event's sponsors, participants and promoters tells a different story: that Gov. Rick Perry has aligned himself with some of the most extreme figures on the Religious Right and embraced a troubling sectarian vision for the country.

The GOP’s Favorite Hate-Monger: How the Republican Party Came to Embrace Bryan Fischer

Meet Bryan Fischer, a Right Wing extremist who tirades against gays and lesbians, Muslims, progressives, members of the military and President Obama. Prominent Republican leaders and conservative activists increasingly lend undeserved credibility to him, reflecting the GOP’s embrace of the Right Wing’s escalating radicalism.
