Prophetic Leaders Give Direction After Midterms

This week national prophetic voices gathered to assess the state of the nation and church following the midterm elections during a live broadcast.

While most agreed the outcome of the midterms moved the nation in the right direction, they insisted that prayer and repentance will bring true national transformation.

The one-hour online show G.I. Connect was hosted by Mike and Cindy Jacobs, heads of Generals International in Red Oak, Texas, and featured an array of ministers. Among them were Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministries in Fort Mill, S.C.; Harry Jackson of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, M.d.; Bishop Bill Hamon of Christian International and Pastor Jane Hamon of Christian International Family Church in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.

Jackson, who was interviewed first, said the GOP gains were further evidence that God was "cleaning house" among the nation's leaders both in government and in the church. 

"God is about to sweep clean many, many places of power in America, just as he has done with removing Democratic Party leaders at an unprecedented level," Jackson said.

He also said that this "sweeping" is giving rise to a new crop of underrepresented leaders in government, such as Hispanics like Marco Rubio who recently won a Republican Senate seat in Florida.

Jackson said the midterms made it apparent that the president and the Democratic Party no longer had a foothold in the minority faith groups.

"I think the church is starting to get it," he said. "The defeat at midterm really speaks of a greater problem that the administration is going to have. Unless there is major repentance and turning, we are going to see a major shift in 2012."

Cindy Jacobs agreed with Jackson's comments and added that the next pro-family move will be led by minority voters. "The greatest voter that will be pro-life and pro-defense of marriage, will be black and [Hispanic]," she said.

During his segment, Joyner encouraged believers not to become complacent as a result of the recent political "victories," and he admonished them to pray for the nation as never before. He said Christians can't wait for 2012 elections to see change in the nation, but that Christians must make spiritual changes now or the country will go into a deeper decline.

"2011 could be one of the most intense years we've ever had," he said. "We can't be controlled by political correctness. We've got to stand up boldly and preach the truth or we're going to lose."

Bill Hamon said the change America is looking for will not come from politics alone but from Christians interceding for true transformation in this nation. The church must prepare for the coming spiritual awakening.

"If we get everybody praying in the spirit. And let the Holy Spirit lead … we could start turning the heavens upside down for the glory of God," Bill Hamon said. "[This will] bring reformation and bring transformation to America."
