"The very first agenda item that we have discerned that we are to pray for Israel and to contend fervently that our Prime Minister will continue to stand [in a friendly policy towards Israel] and having done all to stand. We're going to be interceding for a spirit of courage to come upon our Prime Minister because of the upcoming [UN] motion that is coming down the pike."To be fair to Faytene, "very first" may not mean the most important--this could be merely the first of a series of roughly equal priorities. However, to be fair to her audience, she should have said in her promo video today that she is pro-Israel and wants Canadians to be the same way. [My concern here is with honesty. It's unfair to lead pro-Palestinian Christians think that The Cry Ottawa will be moderate on this question, when Faytene--speaking to a friendlier audience--demonstrates that she has picked a side.] The next priority for The Cry Ottawa that she talked about at the July 23 conference is not mentioned in her promotional video of today. On July 23, Faytene said: "The second thing that we are going to do there is pray for America to be strong and stand in support of Israel, which will be an act of God. That will be an act of God. The Congress, by and large, is pro-Israel, but the President sure isn't. And so, we need to pray for the United States of America, like never before, specifically on this issue." After Faytene led prayer for Israel, a young lady named Georgina came up to make prophetic-style declarations about The Cry Ottawa. I don't know if she is one of her interns, but she talks like a mini-Faytene. Declaring that "Abortion is finished!" and "Immorality is finished!", Georgina went on to later say "It's the dread champions that are going to stand up on the [Parliament] Hill! And God said to these dream champions that 'You need to pursue, you need to overtake, and you need to recover all, because it [the evils she mentioned] is finished!" "Dread Champions" is NAR-speak for the "Joel's Army" that will take over the world so that Jesus may return. Grammatically, "these dread champions" would refer to the previous mention, those who "stand on the Hill" at The Cry. So this is a reference to The Cry Ottawa being dominionist in intent, so far. In an earlier post on The Cry Ottawa, I had been wondering out loud whether Faytene and her allies felt a need to remind the Tories that they were only conditionally supporting the party. I think what Faytene said next might be alluding to this. Faytene got the mike back and said that The Cry Ottawa needed to get people mobilized again.
"...It's only a month away, honestly, so we need to mobilize the nation a break off--there's been a sleepy spirit over us. It's almost like since the government shift, there's been this spirit of complacency that's come on. We need to shake it off. We need to shake it off. We're living serious times and we need to pray, and we're the answer. And the glory of God is going to break out and we are going to see the dream of God manifested in our time, as we show up, okay? You are The Cry. Take the posters and spread them around..."No pressure, eh? ;) Well, I'll pray that good things come of the rally. But, so far, it seems to me that that would be despite some of the intentions of Faytene and her friends, not because of them. Being coy to the public, and fire-breathing among friends, is not a good start
