On the eve of the US elections, I had the privilege of interviewing six prominent members of the Evangelical community: Dr. Lance Wallnau, Cindy Jacobs, Bishop Henry R. Jackson, Alveda King, Mario Bramnick and Ramiro Peña. We spoke about a variety of topics, from the importance and power of prayer, to race relations and the role of the US in standing for religious liberty across the globe.
The event was called Rise Up, and it took place at Hope Christian Church in Beltsville Maryland. This unique, multi-ethnic bi-partisan prayer gathering was gathered under the banner of no King but Jesus.
Although there are real issues and hardships our Nation must navigate, the gathering was full of hope for a prosperous future and a united America. Now is the time for all born again believers to seek the face of God, hear His voice, and live from our connection with Him. Our actions can expand the Kingdom here and now, but we must rise up.
Evangelist Alveda C. King shared a vision of hope for the future rooted in the gospel of Christ. “I know we can be one race, not separate races. And I believe that we really can learn to live, to love and to grow together as brothers and sisters. In that way, all of the violence and all of the issues can begin to cease. And we can come together and have better lives in America and around the world.”
Do you believe? Rise up!
