Updates from the Road

“I have witnessed many people get healing through prayer. When fellow believers and ministers lay hands on you and you receive “deliverance ministry”, something breaks in the supernatural. If you feel you need deliverance from bondage in your life, I would highly recommend getting prayed over.  I have spent much time at the altar myself over the years, receiving prayer for deliverance”.-Pastor Todd

What does the Bible say about deliverance?

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance in the Bible is the acts of God whereby He rescues His people from peril. In the Old Testament, deliverance is focused primarily on God’s removal of those who are in the midst of trouble or danger. He rescues His people from their enemies (1 Samuel 17:372 Kings 20:6), and from the hand of the wicked (Psalm 7:217:1318:16-1959:2). He preserves them from famine (Psalm 33:19), death (Psalm 22:19-21), and the grave (Psalm 56:1386:13Hosea 13:14). The most striking example of deliverance is the exodus from Egypt (Exodus 3:86:68:10). Here is God defined as the Deliverer of Israel who rescues His people, not because they deserve to be rescued, but as an expression of His mercy and love (Psalm 51:171:286:13).

In the New Testament, God is always the subject—and His people are always the object—of deliverance. The descriptions of temporal deliverance in the Old Testament serve as symbolic representations of the spiritual deliverance from sin which is available only through Christ. He offers deliverance from mankind’s greatest peril—sin, evil, death and judgment. By God’s power, believers are delivered from this present evil age (Galatians 1:4) and from the power of Satan’s reign (Colossians 1:13). All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ, who was Himself delivered up for us (Romans 4:25) so that we would be delivered from eternal punishment for sin. Only Jesus rescues us from the “wrath to come” (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

Another aspect of deliverance concerns the temporal. While believers are delivered once for all time from eternal punishment, we are also delivered from the trials of this life (2 Peter 2:9). Sometimes that deliverance is God simply walking through the trials by our side, comforting and encouraging us through them as He uses them to mature us in the faith. Paul assured the Corinthian believers that “no temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). In these cases, rescue is not immediate, but in due time, after patience has had its perfect work (James 1:2-412). God makes the way of escape simultaneously with the temptation which, in His perfect will and timing, He permissively arranges or allows for His people.

“I have witnessed many people get healing through prayer. When fellow believers and ministers lay hands on you and you receive “deliverance ministry”, something breaks in the supernatural. If you feel you need deliverance from bondage in your life, I would highly recommend getting prayed over.  I have spent much time at the altar myself over the years, receiving prayer for deliverance”.-Pastor Todd

Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. It’s important to understand that, as believers, we already have eternal victory over Satan and demons. But we can be delivered from their influence in our lives by using two weapons God has given us as part of our spiritual armor with which we battle “against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12-17). The believer defends himself with the shield of faith and uses the offensive weapon of the Word of God. Against these two, no spirit can prevail. By holding up the shield of faith, we extinguish the flaming spiritual arrows they send against us, arrows of lust, doubt, guilt, jealousy, evil speech, and all manner of temptations. With the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, we overcome the evil one by proving his temptations to be lies because he is the father of lies (John 8:44). John’s second letter commends the young Christians whose spiritual strength came from the Word of God living in them. By the offensive weapon of the Truth, we overcome the evil one (1 John 2:14).

Deliverance from sin, rescue from trials, and escape from the influence of a world in the control of the evil one come only through Christ, the Son of God who has come and “has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life” (1 John 5:19-20).

The Religious Liberty Coalition—Crucial to America for a time such as this!

This is a speech that was given at the Bible Museum in Washinton, DC at the “Well-Versed Summit” put on by Well-Versed Ministries and Dr. Jim and Rosemary Garlow. It featured many speakers throughout the day talking about many of the issues on the ballot in 2020. 

The greatest threat to America is not the COVID-19 virus.

We don’t dismiss the scientific and legitimate medical concerns of COVID-19. However, the virus isn’t the most pressing threat to our country. The most imminent danger to our republic is the complete and utter overreach of government power, especially in many Liberal run cities, counties, and states. Our nation faces a fatal risk when the government takes actions that violate our fundamental freedoms. Blue state Governors and Mayors are leading us down the road of tyranny eroding our constitutional rights.

In the last few months, we have seen officials in numerous states abusing their authority to severely restrict freedoms, as they don’t want to let “a good crisis go to waste.” Nowhere has this been more apparent than discriminatory policies directed against America’s houses of worship in the last few months.

Religious Liberty for Some or Religious Liberty for All? - Center for American Progress

People of faith nationwide have largely shown love for their neighbors, complied with health guidelines, gone the extra mile to adapt religious services, and continued serving communities as our faith teaches. Even still, outrageous violations of religious freedoms are constantly launched against us. What does this say about the state of our nation? How long can the Church and Christian based organizations tolerate these abuses of power?

One thing is increasingly clear. The attacks on our First Amendment rights during the health crisis are a warning sign that America is facing a constitutional crisis due to activist judges and those in positions of elected authority who are not only willing but anxious, to violate and usurp the law of the land.

The Religious Liberty Coalition (RLC) is on the front lines of this crucial fight, keeping an eye on every government order—from the local level to Capitol Hill. We are working daily with churches, pastors, ministries, non-profits, and those on the front lines in the faith community.

As we have watched many of the news stories in recent months regarding churches and pastors who are getting fined, harassed, and sometimes even arrested… it makes us understand the deep need for the RLC in a time such as this. Religious freedom—including the inalienable right to exercise one’s beliefs by attending church—has become “ground zero” in the battle for our republic. We must respond to these actions and stand up now.

There’s a reason why our Founders fought to ensure that religious freedom held a special (and first) place in the Constitution. They understood that people of faith and churches are essential to the fabric of our society, and therefore it is necessary to restrain government power. The Declaration of Independence declares our rights are from God, and the Constitution guarantees those rights so religious communities could freely live out their faith and contribute to the flourishing of our country.

Here’s the bottom line: If “We the People” forget, willfully ignore or downgrade religious liberty from being first on the list of freedoms listed in the Constitution, we could lose these freedoms forever. Throughout the pandemic, there’s been no shortage of government leaders abusing their power and trampling on the Constitution by singling out and discriminating against people of faith and churches. The current Governor of New Jersey recently commented that he never even considered the Constitutional rights of citizens when he issued his executive orders infringing on citizens freedoms and the freedom of the church

The Constitution is designed to protect religious institutions, so that no governor, state, or local official arbitrarily singles out religious activities for restrictions that do not apply to other areas of American society. But as we see from the examples above (as well as many more not mentioned here), some in positions of authority don’t grasp the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom.

The RLC is on the front lines of the battle.

Right now, we are fighting for and reclaiming the First Amendment freedoms of religious communities nationwide. Protecting religious liberty is essential in this critical time, and it’s the first step in making sure we preserve America’s precious and unique constitutional system.

No Church or faith organization can do this alone. We need an alliance of partners around the nation that will be willing to stand together in prayer, and together in strength to resist the attack on Christians. We need to stand together and offer financial support when necessary to take on the “Goliaths” of our day. Will you stand with us to ensure that our rights to religious freedom are not compromised? Will you stand with many pastors, churches, and ministries all around this nation that need your help right now?

Please contact Todd Coconato at 615.357.7643 Todd.Coconato@RLCUS.org to discuss joining the RLC today.

Or if you want to support the RLC in defending the First Amendment and faith leaders/churches/organizations please follow this link.

Thank you and may God bless this great nation and return us to the Judeo-Christian morals and principles that we were founded upon.

Remembering the “Jesus Movement” of the 1960s and 70s…

Remembering the “Jesus Movement” of the 1960s and 70s…

The Jesus Movement was a counterculture Christian youth revolution that emerged in the United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s. This change in the American religious landscape corresponded with a period of social upheaval in the youth culture of these two decades, which was a time of protest, uncertainty, and rebellion against societal norms.

During this era, many young people experimented with psychedelic drugs and sought to expand their consciousness through experimentation with Eastern mysticism and occult religions. In their ideological opposition to the current social institutions, including the Christian church, they sought various methods of protest. They were labeled “flower children” because they wore flowers and distributed flower-themed ornaments to represent their ideals of peace, joy, love, and universal belonging. Young men and women alike let their hair grow long, wore love beads, and listened to rock music.

Do you want a revolution? The 60s and 70s Jesus Movement then and now - The Christian Post

In their pursuit of happiness and a cultural utopia, many of these young people came to faith in Jesus Christ, giving birth to the Jesus Movement, also known as the “Jesus revolution” and the “Jesus People Movement.” Because so many of these converts had been drug addicts and street people, they were often called “Jesus freaks.” But not all who joined the Jesus Movement were former drug users and hippies. Many young people left conventional Christian churches in search of more fulfilling spiritual experiences amid the excitement and transformation of this new movement of Christian renewal.

While the growth of the Jesus Movement was disorganized and diverse, with many scattered subgroups, participants in the spiritual awakening shared common characteristics. Perhaps most apparent were the movement’s intense evangelistic fervor and stress on experience and emotion over doctrine. As part of their anti-establishment shift, the Jesus Movement pushed away from the norms of institutional religious expression. One widespread aspect of their unconventional lifestyle involved communal living. The Jesus people’s worldview opposed intellectualism and conventional social values of the time. Many old-school Christians criticized the Jesus Movement for being too simplistic.

In protest of traditional religious music, the sound of the Jesus Movement was solidly rock and roll. A direct legacy of the movement was the contemporary Christian music industry, which exploded in the following decades. Worship services were typically charismatic, informal, and emotional. An intense interest in end times and apocalyptic prophecy pervaded the Jesus Movement, primarily inspired by Hal Lindsey’s book The Late Great Planet Earth. A popular message of the movement was “Repent! Get ready! Jesus is coming back soon!”

At the height of the Jesus Movement, adherents were estimated to number anywhere between 30,000 to 3 million people. Many of the early founders of the movement—Ted Wise, Lonnie Frisbee, Chuck Smith, Larry Norman—came from Southern California. Other prominent groups sprang up in Seattle under Linda Meissner (the Jesus People Army) and in Milwaukee headed by Jim and Sue Palosaari (the Jesus People). An offshoot of the Milwaukee movement later grew into the Jesus People USA, which eventually settled in Chicago. This group is one of only a few remaining Christian communes with roots in the original 1970s Jesus Movement.

Other outcomes of the Jesus Movement that reflected the influence of the larger secular counterculture were events like beach baptisms and open-air Jesus concerts. Jesus people coffee houses featuring live music, prominent periodicals such as Right On!, and religious bumper sticker slogans were all trendy elements of the movement.

Eventually, by the late 1980s, the Jesus Movement disintegrated in two directions. One portion became increasingly doctrinally unsound and alienated from both the Christian community and the larger society. The other segment was absorbed or reabsorbed into many various Christian groups such as the Calvary Chapel Association, the Vineyard Movement, Jews for Jesus, and the Christian World Liberation Front. I personally have much admiration for Calvary Chapel churches.

Like most revival movements, the Jesus Movement was relatively short-lived but left its mark on Christian history, rejuvenating a portion of the body of Christ through its music, informal worship style, and appeal to young people.

Many people believe that we are starting to see a similar type of movement arising today. There are “pockets of revival” in many places as God is moving through the power of His Holy Spirit! We believe that God responds to the prayers of the righteous. Let’s keep praying and contending for revival in our nation and world in Jesus’ name! We believe its coming and that turning our hearts back to God is the only way to see real and lasting change!
