I want to expand on a little known fact or little reported fact. January sixteenth is a special day for America. It’s special for America as it was founded on Judeo Christian Values, and was founded as a country that would respect a Freedom to worship God without Government interference.
National Religious Freedom Day commemorates the Virginia General Assembly’s adoption of Thomas Jefferson’s landmark Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom on January 16, 1786. That statute became the basis for the establishment clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and led to freedom of religion for all Americans.
Religious Freedom Day is officially proclaimed on January 16 each year by an annual statement by the President of the United States.
Now you don’t have to wonder why these prisoners weren’t released a few weeks earlier. It was Christmas. A time when the world celebrates Christ’s Birth. But God chose Jan. 16, to show His hand, to show that He is God.
“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10)
So Obama can stand as he did this morning and proclaim what he did, but God chose this day, God moved for His people to be released. God moved to free innocents from the clutches of evil just as He did in Egypt, with the Israelites. And before you say that Muslims were freed with Christians so this is null and void. God does not want any to perish but all to come to him.
Prayers of the Saints were sent to the Throne of God not only for Pastor Saeed but for all held hostage in a dark and sinister place. Yes, Iran is still dark, not because of it’s people but because of the dark powers that rule in that land. The Bible even speaks of the darkness in this region. There has been spiritual darkness in this region since the time of Daniel: The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia…….So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia….. Daniel chapter 10.
God sent hope to Daniel but first He sent Michael to battle against the spiritual darkness of Persia. It’s still there today. But God is in control. He will show His hand to the world and all will know that He is God. And Paul tells us that we battle a spiritual darkness, not flesh and blood. This is a great example of Paul’s warnings. This spiritual darkness that rules these lands is not from god, it’s not earthly in fact, it’s a spiritual darkness. Paul warned the Ephesians, saying put on the Armor of God, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
As we witness prophecy unfold in this region, we should pray for God to protect His people and the innocent. And remember God is calling His people to come out of “Her”. As prophecy unfolds our prayers should increase, prayers for strength, courage, and protection for our brethren and for us. I believe we are about to see prophecy explode. Are you ready? Put on the Armor of God and get in His word. Time is running out.
