God, You reign above all! We look to You for Truth and Justice in our nation and among the people of our nation.

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is more than a curriculum debated at a school board meeting. It’s more than a training your company’s HR department is requiring you to attend. These are merely manifestations of what is going on behind the scenes.

CRT is a mindset. It is an attitude. It is a prevailing spirit resting upon our nation at this moment in time.

CRT’s grandfather, Critical Theory (CT), dates to the 1930s. CT offered a false dichotomy as the lens through which to view life and economic status. Proponents of CT started a dispute between the working class—proletariat—and the capitalist leaders—bourgeoisie—that created a power vacuum resulting in Marxist revolutions. You were either rich or you were poor.

Similarly, CRT is attempting to force upon the American population a single false dichotomy to look at our world. But this time the division is primarily race, not socioeconomic status. CRT divides on the basis of two negative outlooks: based on your race, you are oppressed or you are the oppressor.

This modern day rendition of this spirit is pitting minority groups against majority groups by forcing people to choose between the minority groups, which are oppressed, or the majority groups, which are the oppressors.

All of this division is based upon external characteristics.

The lie is that you are either oppressed or you are the oppressor. This is the only choice you have.

Please understand, this tactic is not new! Creating false identities is this spirit’s specialty.

The CRT mindset gives the permission to someone, the oppressed, to take on a “victim identity,” which gives the right to be angry, bitter, and hopeless because of the person’s circumstances.  The thinking goes on, since you are a victim, you are not responsible for aspects of your life and the only remedy is that others have an obligation to take care of you.

 

This spirit also attempts to convince the so-called oppressor that they have a responsibility to the oppressed because they, or their ancestors, have injured them. The resulting feelings of shame and guilt propel people to want to take care of those that are injured (in this case by racism).  This cycle has created an entirely new ethos among a generation to become social justice warriors desiring to right the wrongs of injustice. Christians who embrace this (and this is a HUGE group) have now chosen to care more about social injustices than spiritual damnation.

A focus on economic status created cultural turmoil and resulted in Marxist revolutions ninety years ago. Today, under the guise of addressing racism, we are falsely forced to identify as either oppressed or oppressor and we are seeing tremendous cultural turmoil. Regardless of what today’s turmoil will lead to, the spiritual roots and results are the same.

We as Christians do not have to idly sit back and let this happen nor are we limited to just showing up at school board meetings to protest!

I was struck the other day by Ephesians 3:10: “His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms…”

God’s intends for us to “make known” to the spiritual entities empowering this demonic lie the wisdom of God. The Greek word for “make known” is the word declare or announce! We are to announce to these spiritual forces the wisdom of God:

  1. We are not forced to only choose between being oppressed or being an oppressor. Rather we announce that we are more than conquerors! (Romans 8:37)
  2. We declare that we don’t have to be angry and bitter because we have been wounded! (Philippians 4:19)
  3. We declare God has created wonderful things for us to accomplish, which no one will take away! (Ephesians 2:10)
  4. We speak the truth that God is the one who brings us justice! (Psalm 37:5-6)

    This MUST WATCH video perfectly demonstrates the oppressor, the oppressed and the appropriate response. There is something at the end that we are not endorsing, but despite that we believe this is a powerful video to consider.

Dear God, I pray for our Christian leaders who are fighting to do what is right in Your eyes for this nation. Give them the wisdom and discernment and allow them to lead in proposing good ideas and plans to make them laws for the sake of the next generation. Lord, forbid any false and harmful plans the progressive left Democrats have introduced to make them law in this land. Because You are Sovereign Lord, may Your name be always exalted and honored in our hearts and minds and in this country.

CRT: Christ Reigns (In) TRUTH!

I truly can hardly believe what I have seen happen since Covid, to the American people!! It’s like there is a spirit of insanity and deception, that has engulfed even some believers! I never thought I would see the amount of “normal” people go berserk, with fear, animosity, (even family members against one another). Now, with CRT, we stand to “go over the cliff,” completely, if we don’t wake up and fight back!! CRT is a Marxist ideology that is causing, and teaching, some people to literally, hate!! There is no room for CRT, anywhere, in this country! White guilt, “woke,” oppressed, oppressor, these are ALL demonic, satanic lies, right out of the pit of hell!! I agree with Eric Metaxis, who believes, strongly, that Christians HAVE to stop being silent! It’s time to take a stand and start speaking up! Remember, it is up to us, His people, to humble themselves, seek His face, turn from our evil ways, THEN, He will hear from heaven and heal our land! We cannot afford to stay silent ever again.

“Father guide us on what your will is for this nation. Teach us to pray the prayers that will lead all peoples hearts and souls to do your will.” I would not bow down to anyone accept Jesus Christ.

Thank you for sharing. No wonder there are so many accepted identities today. This spirit definitely mocks God. Father, help us to stand against these demonic rulers and authorities. Gives us the words to prophetically speak and declare against them as we knock down their lies and replace them with the truth of God’s word. Father, thank You that You have empowered Your people to set the captive free. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Disgusting acts of self-abasement will not remove your “inherited guilt.” Just ask the Kulaks in the Ukraine in the 1920s. Ask the farmers in Zimbabwe ten years ago. Ask the South African farmers TODAY.

This is the movement of EQUALITY discussed by Fredrich Neitchze in the late 1800s. “Equality! We demand EQUALITY! For after all what is equality but that the universe be filled with the storms of our revenge. against all those for whom we are NOT their equal.”

Thanks for this insight. I added my public comments at the local school board. School District Administrator stated they are training staff to implement Critical Race Theory. School board president states no, it is not being implemented in the district. Poor communication but our small community will now attend meetings to demand CRT is not taught to 1300 children in public schools.

The public will ultimately demand SCHOOL CHOICE FOR ALL.

The problem is people don’t know God or His word. The Word is a double edged sword.
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and joints and marrow, and is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 NKJV

We must tell people of the good news of Jesus Christ and salvation, the “Great Commission.”

LORD I pray the as Your children we are bold in speaking of Your Son Jesus. That we know Your word because it is our sword to fight against the dark powers in our country. That we cast off demons from people like this young man. That we heal the sick. LORD I pray that Your children know Your word and put on the armor of God daily. This young bowed down to kiss the feet of man because He does not know You or Your word. You have given us a spirit of power & truth, a boldness. We must remember we can do all things in Christ who
Is our strength. Father I pray for America because right Satan is running rampant and roughshod. I understand as Your child it is my responsibility to speak Your word and bring people to Christ. I understand we are fighting a spiritual war against the principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age. “and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Ephesians 6:19-20 NKJV LORD I pray for the young man kissing the feet of the black men who were perverting Your word. Please forgive him Father for he knows not what he did. I ask You to remind us that we are Your children and that we call to remembrance all You have taught us. Write it on our hearts LORD. In Jesus name I pray. Amen 🙏🏼❤️

Jesus remove the veil of blindness from everyone regarding the truth of CRT. Jesus in your mighty name we plead your blood over our nation to free all people from the crises and prison of CRT. Victory is yours by the power of the Holy Spirit to release all people from their bondage of CRT. In your name we pray! Amen! Amen

It is obvious that the spirit behind this CRT nonsense is Satan. He is the spirit behind all the ungodly behavior and thinking in the world today. That said, we bind the spirit of oppression and falsehood behind this CRT in Jesus’ name. We loose a spirit of integrity, honesty, and pray that this CRT, and all the other ungodly, radical nonsense will not be allowed to happen in our nation. Thank You, Jesus.

That photo is very disheartening. Guilt truly has gone too far. The only feet I would kiss and worship the ground He walked on would be Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

That’s exactly right. Parents, not the schools, have the responsibility to know what their children are learning. Parents need to pay much more attention, and not only that, get involved in their children’s schools and speak up about things they see that is wrong.

That photo? There’s no way I would bend down to ANY man & kiss his feet! The only person that that obedience would belong is Jesus Christ, my Lord & Saviour.

For decades the school systems have been teaching more and more unnecessary and inappropriate things, and at the same time failed to teach essential information, but look at parents now! An issue regarding race crops up, and wow, they FINALLY spring into action! Gosh, even teaching little grade schoolers about “Two Mommies”, and “Two Daddies”, and there were just a few parents who tried hard to stop it all. But bring into the mix a race issue, and zowie! Parents finally give a darn about what their children are being taught! Parents wouldn’t tolerate for a week what most of their children have to put up with in classrooms, such as chairs being thrown, fights starting, yelling while trying hard to learn. Parents have far too long have been incredibly lazy, self-centered, and lacking.

    Parents are lazy. It’s up to school to teach the child, on everything, except reading, writing, and arithmetic. The 6 year old can’t say the Abc’s, or add 2+2, but they sure do know a lot about anal sex. It’s sickening that with all the vouchers parents can get to send their pride and joy, to a great school, they are too busy watching the big game on television, to do it. And don’t even get me started on so called patriots. A joke, by any standard. Real patriots, of yesteryear, are truly rolling in their graves.

Father, I thank You that we have been created in Your image to rule and reign on earth as You rule and reign in heaven. Father I thank You that when Adam handed our authority over through disobedience that You already had a plan for our redemption because You are not bound by time, You are the creator of that as well. Jesus, my Redeemer, thank You for paying the price we could never pay through Your perfect sacrifice on the cross, and resurrection You have raised all who confess with their mouths and believe in their hearts that You are LORD. We are now seated with You in heavenly places and the authority to rule and reign on earth is ours once again. Father I pray revelation knowledge over Your body on earth that we would see clearly our position and standing. It is by the blood of the Lamb and THE WORD of our testimony that we defeat the enemy of our souls.Your Word IS our weapon spoken aloud and released in faith we fight FROM a place of victory, not for a victory. Father I pray You would set every heart ablaze and cause us to walk in holiness (set apart) because You are Holy. We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us. We need not shrink back in fear because no weapon formed against us shall prosper and the gates of hell will not prevail against Your church. Awaken us daily to suit up in the full armor You provide for us and rest in the fact that the battle belongs to You. We need only to be obedient and live our lives faithful to Your Word putting on the new man and walking in the Spirit.
Thank You for I.F.A. and the contributors that educate us and show us how and where to pray so we can effectively bring Your kingdom come, and Your will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven. Thank You for eyes to see and hears to hear Your Spirit speak and most of all I pray that You will give us all hearts to obey when You speak.
Thank You Father that we can ask and know we receive because of the matchless name of Jesus🙌🙌🙏

Maranatha, Lord Jesus, come quickly…In You perfect Name we pray!
