Thanks to Geri who sent me the following article found here:
In the latest attempt by the patriotic/conservative wing of the visible church to take back America, believers are urged to come to Washington D.C on May 1, 2010 for a day of repentance and prayer.
May Day 2010 – A Cry to God for a Nation in Distress
Led by a who’s who of political, religious and cultural holy warriors we are assured that:
“This event is not to impress the media or those in Washington, but to reach the heart of God. Publicly repenting and crying out to God for His mercy instead of the judgment our many sins deserve.”
Sounds great doesn’t it, just what this country needs, a good dose of humility and true turning to God but is that the only agenda at work here?
My first thought when I saw this was, why did they choose the day that is historically associated with the celebration of communism? Perhaps it was only a coincidence. Then I realized the name and date was a play on words. Mayday is the international signal for ships in distress and there is no question that our ship of state is currently in great distress.
But as I examined the press release for this event I noticed something else at work
The group will repent for how the nation has turned from God in every area of influence: 1) business 2) government, 3) media, 4) arts and entertainment, 5) education, 6) the family and 7) religion and invite God back into each area of Americans’ lives.
There it was just as plain as day. The 7 areas of influence (aka the Seven Mountains) are the 7 cultural arenas which, according to Dominionist teaching must be conquered by the church before Jesus returns.
Dominionism (aka Kingdom Now theology) is the heretical idea that the church, not Jesus will bring righteousness to this world. It is based on many false teachings, not the least of which is the belief in a great end time revival. In dominionist doctrine this great end time revival will be led by a group of ‘super Christians’ who have reached a state of sinless perfection in the flesh, thereby empowering them to do great miracles. This sinless company of believers (sometimes known as the manifest sons of God, the manchild company, the bride of Christ, or the latter rain company) will in turn be led by a group of restored apostles and prophets. These apostles and prophets will have the power to speak on Gods behalf to all believers and to the world.

My suspicions about this event were confirmed when I saw the list of names on the organizing committee. Among the politicians and culture warriors are three of the biggest guns of the New Apostolic Reformation
Chuck Pierce – Glory of Zion International
Dutch Sheets – Dutch Sheets Ministries
Cindy Jacobs – Generals International

Do not be deceived folks. This dominionist/kingdom now theology is nothing more than Church Jihad. The bible does not teach that we will bring righteousness to the world. It is Christ alone in his physical return to this earth who will establish a righteous world government. It is Christ alone who will rule the nations with a rod of iron, not man. There is no great end time revival but rather a great end time falling away from the truth of scripture and this deadly doctrine plays right into that great apostasy.
Nothing good can come of this. Do not join yourself with apostates, unbelievers, and Chino’s (Christian in name only). America is not Gods chosen nation. It is true that God has used America as a vessel of honor but it is also true that we have been used as a vessel of dishonor. The Lord has decreed that in the latter days all nations shall come against His covenant people and that includes the good old USA.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2Chronicles 7:14
True revival begins in the hearts of men as the Holy Spirit brings conviction and the reality of sin righteousness and judgment. Only then will men see themselves as the wretched sinners they truly are and only then will they repent and turn to Christ in holiness and truth. The nation will never change until change comes to the hearts of men through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And that change needs to begin first of all in the institution that calls itself the church.
Turn from your belief in the wicked way of man centered kingdom now theology. Turn from your wicked ways that equate patriotism with godliness. Turn from your desires to fight for and against the kingdoms of this world. Repent and understand that the kingdom of God is not of this world. Our warfare is centered around the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The time is short. Judgment is at the door. Who’s kingdom will you fight for?
RedeemedHippie:[It will be a hard task for some of you to say "No!" to this. Your churches may be planning on going. You will be made to feel like you should go or you are not as "spiritual" as those going. Are you willing to say "no" and stay home? Instead of being seen by men in some great gathering, are you willing to go into your prayer closet and pray? Which is Jesus more pleased with? How did He tell us to pray?
Think about this too: Any time there is a great movement of multitudes of people together, it creates a camrederie. Do you really want to be part of something that not only could lead you into further deception down the road, but actually join you with the those who have no discernment, and follow FALSE leaders and teach doctines of demons? Think about it, friend. There is a remnant for the last days. Decide who are you going to follow: the masses? God just may call you to be alone for awhile. It is better to be alone with Him than to be with a sea of people who may just end up helping to usher in the antichrist.]
