Viewing the Election from a Prophetic Vantage Point
by Alveda King
While Christian leaders are still taking sides in the current elections there is yet a non-partisan place in the spirit where we can speak justice and mercy to all, including to all candidates.
Open letters are useful from various vantage points. I’ve signed a few myself.
For example, this was released by leaders who favor Sec. Clinton.
This was released by leaders who favor Mr. Trump.
I released this video yesterday:
We need help.
Consider Vashti and Esther:
Two women, living in a system of female oppression in a harem. When married to the king, they responded to a crisis from two vantage points. We learn from Vashti that indignation without prayer ends in short-circuited justice. Vashti responded with emotions. Esther prayed and sought divine solutions, and won justice for herself and her people.
Consider Sarah and Hagar:
A wife and concubine in competition started the longest family feud in history. While both of their sons by Abraham received God’s blessing, the battle over being the bloodline for the earthly entry of the Messiah has caused a rift that needs the healing power of Agape.
A Civil Rights Lens:
Consider Michelle and Hillary:
As the daughter of former slaves and a daughter of former slave owners, they embrace the pro- abortion agenda. It’s no coincidence that they are married to two of America’s most powerful icons.
“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.” MLK (sons and daughters/humanhood – One Blood/Acts 17:26)
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts 17:26 NIV
Yet how can the dream survive if we murder the children? As we connect the dots, racism, reproductive genocide, poverty and sexual perversion are common enemies that must be defeated.
In this election cycle we are coming full circle, facing a deep wound in the wombs of the women of America. The Barren and Post-Abortive Woman, Vashti and Hagar must be healed; and Queen Esther and Sarah must fast and pray as America returns to God. Read full article at PriestsForLife
