As the "Save America Gathering" organized "555 Days of Prayer to Save America" reaches the eighth day of its outcry to Almighty God for the purification and restoration of His people, His Church, the planners of the prayer initiative are calling for all of The Church to return to its true, scriptural, Kingdom-focused roots, and for some to stop being an inauthentic Church: one more interested in the its station in the world than in the progress of the Kingdom of God.
Said Robert Berry, prime planner and spokesman for 555 Days of Prayer to Save America, "I was at a funeral service, yesterday, in which the friends and family of the departed woman spoke, lovingly, of her, as a person who "kept it real," and did not tolerate "fake" people. We have to be reminded that God, almighty, is not going to accept a 'fake' church."
"The reason for our current prayer segment, a 100-day outcry to God for the purification and restoration of His people, His Church, is because His Church, His people, us, need purification and restoration," said Berry. "The world is too much with us," as wrote William Wordsworth:"
"The World Is Too Much With Us" The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;— Little we see in Nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon! This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon; The winds that will be howling at all hours, And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers; For this, for everything, we are out of tune; It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; So might I, standing on this pleasant lea, Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn; Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea; Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn."
"We are lured away from the finality of The Word of God by hedging and compromise. Or, we are forced by persecution and a misunderstanding world. We seek to mollify forces that do not have our best interests at heart. There are others who wish to use The Church as "The Enemy;" the intolerant, unchanging, anti-modern, boring, stuffy and dusty institution. Note that I am not saying that is what The Church is, but rather, see that I am pointing out attitudes regarding The Church, that are believed and promoted by 'others, ' and Satan. The Church's enemies. But, how else would Satan, the enemy and the accuser, characterize The Church? After all, Satan has spent the last 2,000 years working to ruin The Church. He likes to think himself successful. He likes to brag, a little bit."
"However," Berry continued, "it is our great privilege to bring these things before The Lord, our God, in prayer. To cry out for Satan's 2,000-year labor to be erased from God's people, His Church, that we might be the Church Jesus envisioned as He hung, bleeding and broken, on the cross. We have to keep it 100% real! Jesus kept it 100% real, and so, therefore, will His Church."
The 555-day long prayer initiative has reached day number 363, today. "555 days of Prayer to Save America" will end on September 11, 2014, with The Great Wave Offering," which will draw upon themes from the delivery of the Torah to the Jewish people, by Moses.
