Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Late last week, New Apostolic Reformation "prophetess" Cindy Jacobs announced the yearly "Word of the Lord" from the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, an outfit that, along with the International Coalition of Apostles, is the lead element of this fascist brand of Christianity. (h/t to PFAW's Right Wing Watch).
This "Word" makes for pretty chilling reading. Jacobs declares that this will be a year of a "world-wide shaking"--and that this country is going to get shaken as well unless it shifts hard to the right.
It was sensed from Isaiah 22:15-22 that God wants His church "shut the door" to those who will try to stand in the highest offices of the nations who do not have a father"s heart for the people. Dramatic shifts will take place in election cycles. Some politicians are in the balance and will either vote righteously or go into a deep darkness.
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.
Without such a shift, Jacobs thinks we could go the way of Europe, which is about to "shake, shake, shake" because it thought it could "leave God out of their government." The rest of the world is in for a massive shaking as well.
Jacobs warns that with the coming shift, her followers can expect to be persecuted big-time--apparently because deep down, the "evildoers" know they have the real authority and don't want to admit it.
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.
This ekklesial shift will, for a time, cause the enemies' wrath towards believers, but they will find they have gone too far. The pastors of the United States and Europe will become the mouth pieces for both an awakening and a reformation. A new generation of Wesleys and Wilberforces will stand together and once again call for the church to rise as a moral authority.
Never mind that by pushing for the abolition of First Amendment freedoms, Jacobs and friends are calling into existence the very enemies they whine against.
