Our economy is strong. Our borders are secure. Jobs are plentiful. Health care will not be rationed. That executive order will keep us from funding abortion. Global warming is real, but cap-and-trade will fix it. We made the right choices in November 2008. Selecting our president based on race and popularity was a good idea. We don’t need God; we’re doing just fine on our own. If this is what you believe, this article is not for you. Go back to watching MSNBC and filing your White House reports on all that “fishy speech” you’ve been hearing.
Furthermore, if you don’t grasp where we are as a nation and how we got here, you’re not invited to May Day. That’s right – stay home this Saturday because this event is not for you. I’m not kidding. I don’t want you there even if it will “boost our numbers” or bring the media to cover it. You see, this event isn’t for media attention. I’ve said it all along: our goal isn’t to impress any of the power brokers in Washington. We’re having a meeting with someone more powerful than all of them combined.
This Saturday, we’ve asked for a meeting with the Creator of Earth and undiscovered galaxies. And if we confess our sins and turn from them, I believe He’s going to keep that appointment. So this week, I have one action step: get right before God. Turn off your television, shut off your computer and open His Word. Spend time with God like you never have before. Ask Him to cleanse us with the blood of Jesus and give us clean hands and a pure heart. Because that’s the only way God will come and meet with us on Saturday.
The program begins at sunrise on the East Coast. That’s 6:10 a.m. Think that’s early? Churches in Alaska are opening their doors at 2:10 a.m. to join us.
Fast (from something) this week and let God know you’re serious. Think that’s a lot to ask? Everyone else has been fasting for 40 days.
Get your plane ticket, hop on a bus, rent a van right now and head to the Lincoln Memorial. Too much to ask? George Schalasky is WALKING 720 miles from Illinois to come to May Day.
No, our economy is not strong. Our borders are far from secure. Jobs are anything but plentiful. Unless we can reverse government health care, it will be rationed. That executive order does nothing to stop us from being forced to fund abortion. Global warming is false, and cap-and-trade is only about more government control. In November 2008, we chose death, and we are experiencing the consequences of our actions. We are drowning, and it is our own fault. We have never needed God more, and if that is what you believe, please join us at the Lincoln Memorial this Saturday, May 1, at sunrise to cry out to God for our nation in distress.
Send the invitation to those on your contact lists. Post it on Facebook. Pick up the phone and ask people to join you. Fliers you can paste in your e-mail are at www.MayDay2010.org. Bus and carpool information can be found there, too.
If you love God with your whole heart – a heart that’s breaking for our nation – do whatever it takes to be there. Because we’re out of action steps. There’s no one else to lobby. But the good news is, there’s no One better or more powerful.
