Hear the Chains!

“Why Stand We Here Idle?”


“[I]f My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chron 7:14)


Last week I was privileged to attend the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN. First, let me give you some personal observations:

  • The Tea Party movement is the real thing; it is made up of real people who simply want their country back”.
  • Sarah Palin is also the real deal; I stood ten yards from her during her entire speech and subsequent interview; she is filled with Grace and the Holy Spirit; she can be both tough and witty, and she drives the Obama world crazy because her critiques of their performance are deadly accurate and delivered with a great Anointing.
  • I was deeply moved by a presentation by Judge Roy Moore, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and current candidate for governor of that state; below are some ingredients of his presentation.

Moore believes (as I obviously do, too) that Obama is a Tyrant. He used the following quote from the Declaration:

“A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

Judge Moore also quoted from Patrick Henry:

“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace – but there is no peace. … Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery [i.e. tyranny]? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Finally, we must understand what is happening. Darkness is approaching, and while we still have some Light, we must react.

Brethren: understand! PRAY with desperation! RESIST the approaching TYRANNY! Hear the chains which are being prepared for you and your family by the likes of Obama and his supporters. Yes, HEAR the CHAINS because they are just as real as those discussed in the Declaration and by Patrick Henry!

In Jesus’ Name,

P.S. Below is a link to an article regarding Judge Moore’s address at the Tea Party Convention. May I direct your special attention to Moore’s “Bill of Particulars” (paragraph 15), which references his concern about President Obama.
