I do not believe that we are engaged in "politics". I believe we are engaged in prophetic ministry.
Was Moses engaged in politics when he went down and told Pharaoh, "God said, 'Let my people go'"?
Was Samuel engaged in politics when he said to Saul, "Obedience is better than sacrifice; to harken is better than the fat of rams. You have disobeyed God and God has rejected you from being king"?
Was Nathan involved in politics when he told David about the rich man who stole the ewe lamb from the one poor man adn David said, "Where is that man, that man deserves to die!" And Nathan said to his friend, "You are the man"?
Was Elijah engaged in politics when he said to Ahab and Jezebel, "You are troubling the land"?
And my friends, was John the Baptist engaged in politics when he said to Herod, "It is unlawful for you to have your brothers wife"?
Indeed, was Daniel engaged in politics when he told Belshazzar, "I've read the handwriting on the wall and God has weighed you in the balance and found you lacking"?
Was Jesus engaged in politics when he told Pilate, "You have no power over Me except what has been given you from above"?
It's not politics. It's prophetic ministry.
And I believe that we are in an emergency and we've got to throw aside the excuses that have kept us from getting involved. We've got to challenge our brothers and sisters and say to them,
"God is calling you into this battle."
