"August is going to be a month of incredible transition. Those who go away during the month may come back to an entirely different world" (Pastor John Anderson, Alliance for Revival & Reformation).
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeanceÖand punishmentsÖto bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of ironÖthis honor have all his saints (Ps 149:6-9).
"Those [elders-leaders] who have sinned rebuke before all, that others also may fearÖobserve these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality" (1 Tim 5:19-22).
"Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heavenÖ" (Mt 18:17-20).
This is a defining hour for America! The role of God's interceding people could not be more important than now. Among many questions Americans now face, two stand out. First, will we bequeath our children a nation where the rule of law prevails - where truth and justice are genuinely exalted? Second, will shameless adultery become the new standard of moral conduct for America's leaders, including the President of the United States? Wrong answers to either question portend the outpoured wrath of the Supreme Judge of the Earth (see Dt 29:21-27; Jer 23:14).
For 6 years, Americans have been confronted by the spectacle of unprecedented vulgarity, lawlessness, and criminality continuously undulating from the Clinton White House. Until now, the Clintons have avoided accountability via lies, deceit, obfuscation, stalling, stonewalling, shameless legal maneuvering, dirty tricks, even psychological warfare, all aided by tax-financed legal & media propaganda machines.
Now the President, who seems to have avoided all earthly accountability for a lifetime of misbehavior, must give an account for an alleged 18-month adulterous affair with a 21-year-old intern, and attendant perjury, encouraging others to commit perjury, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Yet this matter, which has dominated the airwaves for the past six months, is only the tip of the iceberg. Since inauguration day, 1993, the Clintons and their revolutionary cabal have devoted themselves to radically change the face of America. If the President is not held accountable for matters within the limited Starr investigation (Whitewatergate, Fostergate, Travelgate, Filegate, and Monicagate), he (and other guilty administration insiders) will never be held accountable for more serious crimes (e.g., secrets to Red China, campaign bribe-taking, etc.) which have literally jeopardized the entire world.
Rather than indict, Ken Starr is most likely to simply deliver the results of his investigation to a Congress which, thus far, has demonstrated little will to act. The American people appear to be casual and unconcerned, while historic standards of morality and truth are going up in flames. The future of both, and ultimately America's survival, may depend entirely upon the repentant prayers of God's people this month. Please, whatever else you do during the month of August, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!
