Bishop Harry Jackson, co-founder of The Reconciled Church, called believers at Liberty Counsel’s The Awakening event to maturity rather than a worldly agenda.
“We need a radical invasion of the person and presence of the Spirit of God,” Bishop Jackson said.
At the annual event focused on the Christian and his relationship to politics, he said politics focuses on the question, “What’s in it for me?”
“Everybody is voting our interests,” he said at the event March 5 at Faith Assembly in Orlando, Florida. “But somewhere, we, the church, have to get to the point where we say that we are for God’s agenda, the righteousness of God, and when we get to that point, we will begin to lead a healing that America has never seen before, and the greatest days of the blessing of God that He’s ordained for our land will be ushered in by the church rising up in the matchless name of Jesus.”
Bishop Jackson confessed to the audience that he was angry, but in anger, we are not to grieve the Spirit, he said, citing Eph. 4:30-32. However, he said, there is a place for anger, the kind of anger that does not lead to sin but causes us to want to make a difference in the world.
“Anger is a precursor for change,” he says. “I believe we ‘re on the verge. If we could just channel our anger with righteousness into the pathways of God, we can change America for good. But it’s got to be a church that says time out for business as usual, time out for doing it the way other people are saying it. But we’ve got to recognize that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they’re mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.”
Reflecting on the race problems in America, Bishop Jackson said we need to know that in anger, “We can reach the place of murder.”
Many ask why blacks and Hispanics don’t “vote the Bible,” but Bishop Jackson says the answer is simple.
