TEXAS GOV. Rick Perry is heading up a day of prayer in Houston on August 6th, an event called The Response. We find this disturbing for a couple of reasons: First, Gov. Perry references Joel chapter 2, which describes the demonic army that ravages Israel; and second, this event is coordinated and endorsed by prominent players within the New Apostolic Reformation.
Joel’s Army means something very different to the NAR than it does for most of us, and our prayer is that Gov. Perry means well but is uninformed about what these people are about. Please read the series of articles by Discernment Ministries on this event:
- IHOP Enters Dominion/Christian Right Politics
- IHOP: International House of Political Action
- IHOP and the NAR
- IHOP’s New Breed Leaders
Sadly, leading evangelicals like Jim and Shirley Dobson have also endorsed this event.
Also: Cornell University invents a time shield; India angry over Monsanto’s GM cotton; debt ceiling posturing; and a look ahead to next week’s Future Congress in Branson, Missouri.
