Vote: Pray For The Ballot in 2014 and 2015

141002 blog image9Not in recent history has an elections been as important as the upcoming mid-term elections on November 2, 2014. With the directions our country is heading, now is the time for Christians to step up to the voting booth and make their votes count so we can turn our directions around. All the recent events of today, terrorist beheadings, Ebola crisis, the economy, education and Common Core, unemployment, abortion, attacks on religious freedom, all, are a result of our turning away from our God and the culture of life and embracing a culture of death. Now, this election cycle, is the time for men and women of faith to vote their biblical values and help steer America back on a path to freedom: freedom from terror, freedom from disease, freedom from joblessness, freedom from abortion. The Church in America is instrumental in accomplishing this so we call on Pastors of every denomination to inspire their congregations to vote for biblical principles.

In 1957, my Uncle ML demanded “Give Us The Ballot.” Now in 2014-2015 I am urging us to “pray for the ballot and vote for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Our nation deserves no less.

From “Give Us the Ballot, We Will Transform the South [Nation]” by Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech given before the Lincoln Memorial at the March on Washington, May 17, 1957 [annotated where indicated]

“Give us the ballot and we will no longer have to worry the federal government about our basic rights. Give us the ballot and we will no longer plead to the federal government for passage of an anti-lynching law; we will by the power of our vote write the law on the statute books of the [southern] states and bring an end to the dastardly acts of the [hooded] perpetrators of violence. Give us the ballot and we will fill our legislative halls with men [and women] of good will, and send to the sacred halls of Congressmen who will not sign a [Southern] Manifesto, because of their devotion to the manifesto of justice.”

Should Christians Vote?

Friday, October 10th, 2014

SPACER141002 blog image7This is part three of what is becoming a series about voting. Some of the intel from the previous two articles is recapped here.

Just before I was born-again in 1983, I served two terms as a State Legislator for the 28th Georgia House District. I was a Democrat. Years later I served as a Republican Presidential Appointee. Along the way I remember learning that God is greater than politics and that politics can become an idol.

Coming from a Christian family who was very active in the 20th century Civil Rights Movement, we marched and some died for equality at the ballot box; the right to vote. So yes, I honor the privilege and responsibility of taking part in our electoral process.

Yet, for far too many, the issue of voting is still shrouded in debate. Many are still asking: “Should believers take part in the politics of this world, including elections?”

In 2008 two of my friends experienced startlingly revealing dreams about the soon to be “first Black President of America.” Please note that America’s president is not the first Black president in the world; only in America. For instance, countries on the continent of Africa have been electing Black presidents for ages.

So many Americans made an idol of a man’s skin color; electing him for the color of his skin rather than the content of his character.

Never mind that racism is based upon the lie that we are separate races rather than accepting the truth that we are one human race.

Acts 17:26 – “Of one blood God created all people…” YES! One race.

In 2008, amidst the skin color furor of the campaign trail, my radio co-host Emmanuel Boose of cycbroadcast.com was a surrogate speaker for the soon to be elected Black President of the United States. Just before the election, my friend dreamed of a field covered with black garbage bags. As he walked through the maze of bags, he heard a wailing cry from one of the bags. Investigation revealed that the bags were filled with aborted babies. Emmanuel woke up crying, sweating and praying. He knew that he couldn’t vote for his candidate. Emmanuel now had to raise his voice and his vote for the lives of the babies.

During the same time, the wife of another minister friend had recurring dreams of then Senator Obama in a hospital wearing a medical lab coat and a stethoscope. He appeared to be a doctor or medical professional.

It would later be revealed that as US President, Mr. Obama would support an HHS Mandate as a “healthcare cloak” for abortion and harmful experimental contraceptives. The medical guise in the dream represented the invasion of deceptive medical reform.

I was angry about what God was revealing at that time. We were going to elect the most abortion supporting, marriage threatening president we had ever known, and skin color would be used to do this. Wow!

Yet another minister friend, Rev. Clenard Childress of LEARN reminded me to forgive God because God would use this president to expose racism, abortion and the attack on Bible principles for marriage in a way that we had not yet seen.

Since that time, I’ve been praying for the President and his family; and have even visited the White House twice in the last seven years to express God’s love to the President.

Now, voting time is upon us again. Yes, I do vote. When I can’t reconcile my faith to the platforms, I write in names. Yet, I vote. People died for my right to do so.

So what do we do now? Let’s start at home base.

What does the Bible say about voting in elections? Surprisingly nothing specifically. Why?

Consider that in the times of Jesus the Jews were under Roman rule and they were not Roman citizens. Therefore, they were not permitted to vote. In fact, most Roman citizens couldn’t either. Only the very wealthy were allowed to vote.

But we can see in Acts 6:1-5 that an “election” of sorts did take place.

“Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. And the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. “But select from among you, brethren, seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. “But we will devote ourselves to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” And the statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch.”

Clearly the seven were to help protect the rights of the people and settle the dispute between the Hellenistic Jews and the native Hebrews.

So it is with our government of today. Once the elected people, “politicians,” are in office, they are expected to safeguard our rights. But one difference is that in the Bible days, the people elected “men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom.” Today, you would have to question the “good” reputation of many in office and more importantly whether they are even men and women who are “full of the Spirit.”

In the elections of 2012, Billy Graham began a campaign, “Vote Biblical Values,” in which he encouraged people to vote for candidates that espoused biblical values and morality, “men/women full of the Spirit.”

So it should be for this election cycle and all elections as well.

In his recent report on “The Shemitah Prophecy” author Rabbi Johnathan Cahn talks about Biblical cycles of blessings which are sometimes affected by negative forces like economic depression, death affirming legislation, 9/11, world wars and the like. These cycles began in the days of Moses and are present today.
http://youtu.be/F6AXP41mr7Q and http://youtu.be/W8B14NSIWc8.

Of course the Shemitah is only one among many warnings of judgment. For example, the year 1963 when prayer was voted out of schools wasn’t a Shemitah year, but much harm has impacted our nation from that occurrence.

Still, all too many ignore God’s signs and judgments, preferring to consult astrology, psychics and demonology. Foolish and shameful!

“O foolish Galatians,” [and Americans] “who has bewitched you, that you turn away from obeying the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ has been evidently set forth, crucified among you?” Galatians 3:1 [annotated]

The Rabbi’s words on Shemitah reveal that the 1973 Roe VS Wade decision that made abortion – the killing of babies in the womb – legal is likely and largely connected to many of the problems America is experiencing.

Mother Theresa once said: “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

She also said, “If we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, rather, to use violence to get what they want.”

As in the days of old, isn’t that what the fear mongers of the world are doing today? Promoting greed and violence over regarding the sanctity of life… Selling birthrights and then shedding innocent blood to wrest erstwhile or unearned or unsecured inheritances by any means?

Yet all is not lost. We can still help shift our world towards a culture of life by voting for those who regard the sanctity of life, marriage, family and THE BIBLE.

So now, as we seek to reconcile everything, what would God have us learn regarding the electorate process?

The heart of God is expressed in the Bible as to His concern for government leaders and leadership by telling us as Christians that we should pray in this vein when we look at the admonition in the following verses:

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

It is our duty as Christians and as citizens to participate in prayer for the elections and those who seek and gain power to lead. But are we to pray only and not vote?

“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?” (James 2:17-20 NLT)

Some may say that the Bible doesn’t say vote so I’m not doing it. Well, I haven’t read in the Bible that we are to flush the commode after we use it, but I still do it. Seriously. Is anyone getting this?

So we pray in faith and then go to work; in this instance, vote.

With our votes we can elect godly men and women who will make laws that conform to biblical values.

Thankfully not all of us are called to be political servants. The majority of us will never hold office but still we have an important role to play. We must begin with prayer and discernment. We must educate ourselves on the stances of the candidates and vote accordingly.

October is the “Month for Life,” and is a critical month every year, especially in an election year. As we continue to pray over the upcoming elections, we ask you to spread your payers far and wide via your social media networks and email lists, and in your pro-life groups, community and civil rights meetings, and churches in the coming weeks.

After the elections, no matter what happens, continue to pray. Remember to warn your children and grandchildren about the foundation of Halloween being witchcraft.

Then get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, always thanking and giving glory to God for His goodness and the gift of His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. His pure, sinless, shed blood can never lose it’s power because it cannot die! Jesus’ blood never died. It was shed into the earth for us. He temporarily gave up his body, but was resurrected. HE LIVES.

Then on to the New Year of 2015, another Shemitah Year where the election cycle continues with the election of a new president. What does God have in store? His will is sure to be revealed.

Meanwhile, continue to pray and vote for candidates who agree with and follow THE BIBLE; who support life, marriage and family according to God’s way as if your quality of life is impacted by it. Because it is.

WHY WE MUST VOTE

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

141002 blog image

Should believers take part in the politics of this world, including elections?

What does the Bible say about voting in elections? Nothing specifically.

Let’s remember that in the times of Jesus the Jews were under Roman rule and they were not Roman citizens. Therefore, they were not permitted to vote. In fact, most Roman citizens couldn’t either. Only the very wealthy were allowed to vote.

But we can see in Acts 6:1-5 that an “election” of sorts did take place.

“Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. And the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. “But select from among you, brethren, seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. “But we will devote ourselves to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” And the statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch.” (NASB77, highlighting added)

Clearly the seven were to help protect the rights of the people and settle the dispute between the Hellenistic Jews and the native Hebrews.

So it is with our government of today. These elected people, “politicians,” are supposed to safeguard our rights. But the difference is that they elected “men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom.” Today, you would have to question the “good” reputation of many in office and more importantly whether they are even men and women who are “full of the Spirit.”

In the elections of 2012, Billy Graham began a campaign, “Vote Biblical Values,” in which he encouraged people to vote for candidates that espoused biblical values and morality, “men/women full of the Spirit.”

So it should be for this election cycle and all elections as well.

It seems that our nation and the whole world is getting further away from God and His teachings. And we are paying for our sins. It’s evident in current events. ISIS, Iran, Russia invading other countries, beheadings of prisoners of various nations, and even a beheading in America.

A couple of quotes from Mother Teresa are appropriate for our discussion. She said: “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

Abortion breaks the most sacred bond, the bond between a mother and her baby, and reduces the sanctity of life to someone’s “choice.” If we are willing to accept abortion then how can we be surprised when one person makes the “choice” that your life must end because you don’t believe what they believe?

She also said, “If we accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill each other? Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, rather, to use violence to get what they want.” Isn’t that what ISIS is doing? What Russia is doing? What Alton Nolen did? Accepting violence over regarding the sanctity of life…

We can help shift our world towards a culture of life by voting for those who regard the sanctity of life. What would God have us learn regarding the electorate process?

The heart of God is expressed in the Bible as to His concern for government leaders and leadership by telling us as Christians that we should pray in this vein when we look at the admonition in the following verses:

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

It is our duty as Christians and as citizens to participate in the elections. With our vote, we can elect godly men that will make laws that conform to biblical values.

Priests for Life promotes National Voter Registration Sunday

Friday, September 5th, 2014

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 5, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK, NY — The final National Voter Registration Sunday will take place this Sunday, Sept. 7.

Voter Registration Sundays are promoted by Priests for Life and other national pro-life and pro-family organizations to encourage pastors and church attendees to do what they are legally entitled to do – conduct non-partisan voter registration drives.

While this Sunday will be the final official day of these registration efforts this year, churches, prayer groups, and Bible studies can register voters on any day of their choosing.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented on the importance of registering voters in time for the November elections.

“It’s mid-term election season, and the importance of an active and informed electorate is greater than it has ever been. The moral direction of America is largely in our hands. Our duty is not only to convert minds and hearts; it is to change laws and policies. And we do that by electing those who share our convictions about what those laws and policies should be.

“The first thing to do, practically, is to register to vote, and to call upon our pastors to have non-partisan voter registration drives in our parishes. Then we have to look closely at the races in our states, and find out who can, in our judgment, best advance the Culture of Life.”

For a list of Vote Pro-Life Coalition partners and to find practical suggestions on helping to get out the vote, go to www.VoteProLifeCoalition.com

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org

Election Prayer and Voter Registration Announced by Priests for Life

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

PriestsForLife

August 19, 2014

Staten Island, NY – Priests for Life today announces a special nine-week Election Novena, starting September 2, that coincides with its other election-related efforts, including Voter Registration Sunday on September 7th, and Fr. Frank Pavone’s hard-hitting series of articles, “Politics and the Pulpit.”

“Priests for Life is asking believers across the country to participate in our Election Novena by praying during the nine weeks from September 2nd to Election Day,” said Fr. Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “The Novena prayer asks God to awaken His people so that we are faithful citizens of His Kingdom who exercise our solemn responsibility to seek justice for all, including the unborn, when we enter the voting booth. As the prayer states, we ‘are not called to be a sect fleeing the world, [b]ut rather a community of faith renewing the world.’”

The Novena begins just five days before National Christian Voter Registration Sunday on September 7th when Christians of every denomination are encouraged to conduct non-partisan efforts to register as many voters as possible. “Not only is voter registration an entirely legal activity in which churches and non-profit groups can engage, but it’s also part of our moral responsibility,” stated Fr. Pavone.

Already online at Priests for Life’s Political Responsibility website is Fr. Pavone’s series of articles, “Politics and the Pulpit,” which addresses questions relating to the rights of clergy and churches at election time. In his series, Fr. Pavone shows why fears by some Church leaders that the Church will lose its tax-exempt status for speaking out at election time are absurd. He calls on Church leaders to stop stifling their own religious freedom.

For more information on Priests for Life’s Election Novena, please go to www.PrayerCampaign.org.

Fr. Frank Pavone Announces National Christian Voter Registration Sundays

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: March 13, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on all believers to participate in National Voter Registration Sundays to be held on June 29, July 6, and September 7 this year.

“Citizens do not have the luxury of ‘sitting out’ elections,” said Fr. Pavone. “When human life is at stake, when our very ability to freely practice our faith is under attack, we need to defend life and faith. God has given us an opportunity to do exactly that by voting. That’s why this year’s Voter Registration Sundays are crucial.”

Voter Registration Sundays are promoted by Priests for Life and other national pro-life and pro-family organizations to encourage pastors and church attendees to do what they are legally entitled to do – conduct non-partisan voter registration drives. While the official days of these registration efforts this year are the Sundays before and after Independence Day and the Sunday before 9/11, churches, prayer groups, and Bible studies can register voters on any day of their choosing.

“Priests for Life has a wealth of material at PoliticalResponsibility.com that explains how to have a voter registration day in your church, spelling out the activities that all churches and charitable non-profit groups are legally permitted to do,” added Fr. Pavone. “There is no legal reason for pastors or churchgoers to refrain from having registration drives at church. On the contrary, we should feel impelled to do so.”

Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, observed that there is a historical connection to this year’s registration drives.

“This is the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act,” she said. “We have seen in these last five decades how the right to vote has helped guarantee the civil rights of all Americans of any color. Our right to vote today can help restore and protect the civil rights of all Americans of any stage of life.”

The Family Research Council, a chief sponsor of the National Voter Registration Sundays, states on its website, “Christians can have a positive impact on elections and ultimately our nation’s future….Yet every election millions of Christians fail to exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens. We can help our people obey Christ’s command to participate in government (Matt. 22:21) by encouraging voter registration and voting Christian values.”

Priests for Life has formed a national “Vote Pro-life Coalition” (VoteProLifeCoalition.com) to foster joint non-partisan efforts among national groups. Members of the Coalition are promoting the Voter Registration Sundays. For instance, Chris Slattery, founder and President of Expectant Mother Care/EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, said, “Getting ourselves, our family, friends, church and pro-life contacts to register to vote is more important than ever. Let’s take the time to get involved with voter registration drives, especially on the dates promoted here.”

Jo Tolck, Executive Director of the Human Life Alliance, simply declared, “Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Remember to register! Remember to vote!”

More information on the National Christian Voter Registration Sundays is available from Priests for Life at http://www.priestsforlife.org/vote/.

Why Won’t Nancy Pelosi Listen?

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

pelosi_and_pavone_300

First, Father Frank Pavone, thank you for having the heart to reach out to Mrs. Nancy Pelosi to remind her of the position of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of life. She says that she is a responsible and respectful Catholic, so maybe she just hasn’t had time to remember the teachings of the Church. How can she say that she is a practicing Catholic when she admits her faith doesn’t line up with the teachings of the church? I pray that thousands will sign on to your open letter to Mrs. Pelosi, and demand some answers to the hard questions you are asking her.

My question is this? Why won’t she listen to the cries of the babies and their mothers who keep dying from abortions? Does she really not care that women and babies are suffering great pain and dying from so called legal abortions? In RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana tells about all of the dangers that mothers may not even know about when they are considering abortion. After an abortion, the babies usually end up dead, and sometimes mothers die too. Why won’t Nancy Pelosi listen?

Yesterday, Glenn Beck and I were discussing abortion on The Blaze. Glenn tends to just speak from his heart and admit his shortcomings, which is hard to do for most of us. Glenn said that he doesn’t like to deal with the abortion issue. He says it makes it uncomfortable, but when God told him that if he doesn’t deal with how wrong abortion is, God will get someone else to do it. I got the strong impression that Glenn is more uncomfortable with letting God down than not talking about abortion. And as you know, since you are right on the firing line all the time, we need help! We need many more people to join you and address Mrs. Pelosi and everyone else who is avoiding the uncomfortable truth that abortion hurts women and kills babies and sometimes their mothers. I’ll be helping tomorrow during the Tweetfest and I hope others will join in to demand that Mrs. Pelosi answer the questions.

Our friend Kevin Burke keeps telling people about how abortion hurts fathers too, how they regret their lost fatherhood. His blog today is so very compelling. I’m glad that he shared the Flypsyde testimony, and there’ the mention of a trip to California with some of the authors of LIFE AT ALL COSTS. By the way, it is such a blessing for Kevin, me and all the Priests for Life Associates, staff and well wishers to join you in this constant battle for life.

Finally I’ll close after this last news note before this blog begins to sound like a rant. My youngest sons, young men in their early twenties, have been following the Trayvon Martin murder and George Zimmerman’s trial. You may recall that I once said that Trayvon’s death was a “late, late term abortion because he was killed in the prime of life. Too many young people are dying today, the youngest being the babies in the womb.

I know that there are many civil rights battles going on right now, and I am very grateful that people are paying attention to everything from love and marriage, who has the right to vote, who will be able to go to college, how should we treat immigrants, who can have a job and so many other issues. However, I join you in working harder to keep the truth about abortion and the painful impact it has on our families and communities before Mrs. Pelosi and indeed all of our leaders, be they spiritual or political.

We Need Christians To Pray This Prayer Now Throughout America.

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

•CORPORATE PRAYER : November 6th we pray as one voice…Don’t miss this powerful 5 minutes of praying exactly the same words. God Save and Bless America!

Father God, Lord and Master of all the earth, today we’re gathered together as one voice, one nation, and one family. We acknowledge you as the one and only God, that because of Jesus we gratefully can also honor and call our Father. Together we declare and receive your promise that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” We need your blessing Father, so please place your hand upon the heart of this country and your people and cause our hearts to beat in rhythm with your purpose. We speak with a loud and clear voice so the heavens will hear our praise and glory to the name that is above every name!

This is the day you have made, and it is to you we direct our attention, as we listen to your voice of wisdom. Today people all over this country are going to utilize the great freedom of choice given to each citizen by going to their respective polls where men and women will be selected to lead this great land. We are here raising our voices, letting you know that though there are multiple opinions about every candidate, there is only ONE that matters. We choose to stand with you Father. We choose what you choose…that the lives of the unborn are precious in your sight, that marriage is sacred between a husband and wife, that the poor and elderly, widows and orphans are dear to your heart and should not be trampled upon, that there is one God and only one, and upon this truth, our country, America, was established.

We ask that you illuminate the candidates that are most aligned with you. Bring them to the office that will best suit your purpose and use their gifts. And for the one that is to lead this great nation, let the one who will hold the most important position in the world, have a heart for you and your holy wisdom, given liberally to all who ask. May they grow in their faith each day they are in office. Cause them to walk in righteousness as they lead our country honorably and with integrity here at home and with those allies to whom we have allegiance. For righteousness exalts a nation.

You have called us the head and not the tail…the first and not the last, the people of your pasture, the flock under your care, the chosen generation! So please restore to us our FIRST love, helping us not to succumb to the temptations of this world in any choices that we make, but rather to walk with our heads held high because we belong to you and are the called according to your purpose! As we vote this day, may we vote with wisdom, conscience and love, according to your life and Word that is within us.

Let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth…in this country, in this election, and in us …as it is in heaven! For its all about your kingdom and your glory forever and ever. Now…Let heaven make a record of this prayer, prayed on this day at this hour by this people, offered in the mighty and perfect name of our Savior and King, Jesus. Amen
