“It really caught my attention that the congresswomen in that meeting had extraordinary authority, and spiritual authority as well as authority. I thought these are truly remarkable leaders … and some of them you are going to hear about, some of them, one of them, I have seen on the news constantly doing interviews and all - that was Michele Bachman? . I was taken by her at first, this girl really has something on her.
And I spent a while this week talking to Sarah Palin on the phone …
“… and trying to encourage her, tell her how much we appreciated the incredible campaign that she ran. You know this lady really got beat up by the press and to me it was shocking the bias and how the other side would say the silliest things you could imagine and not even get a mention on it, and things Sarah Palin said was just taken out of context. But in one sense that really encouraged me and it encouraged me that the democrats have their people up in Alaska right now watching her every move trying to find anything they can just hammer her on and make it out in a negative sense. And they are obviously extremely threatened by her and I believe rightly so. I believe there’s a spiritual authority and calling on Governor Palin and it is extraordinary, and I told her in no uncertain terms that I appreciate her heart for Alaska – and she truly has a heart for Alaska, I mean she is just in love with her state and we should all be that way. She wants to be the best governor she can and do the best job for the Alaskan people, and that is certainly wonderful but I believe she has a national calling on her life. I felt that when I first saw her on the television. When I was walking through the room I didn’t even know who she was, it was when John McCain was entering and using her as a running mate, but she was already speaking and I didn’t even know who she was but I felt right away I was listening to the president of the United States and it is just a strange feeling. I have prophetic feelings like that and they come true
“… and even though I didn’t share publicly, I shared it with a number of people in the last few years and I felt the same way when I heard Obama speak at the democratic convention. This guy has a call on his life ans authority whether you think its good or evil or what he’s doing up there. And I believe he is, and I’m still praying for the man to get a revelation, to get godly counsel. I’m deeply concerned about the way things are going and the ways things are being run up in Washington. And the bills that are being passed, I cannot even connect with them, I cannot understand what they are trying to do. But I’m not giving up on the man, I’m not giving up on Sarah Palin either.
And the reason that I’m sharing that with you is that we all need to – you know, when the press goes after someone like that, or when the accuser goes after someone like that – you know, I don’t think we need to let them win. I don’t think we need to let the media win and just beat someone down like that. We’ve let it happen in the past – some of our really good people. I’ve met Dan Quayle, I knew him a little bit. He is a brilliant man, even the democrats in the senate said he was a brilliant senator, yet the media pasted him as some buffoon. And it just wiped out his career. I think he could have been an incredible public servant.
We cannot allow the media to win with Sarah Palin. I don’t believe that. I’m gonna stand up and I want to encourage her but encourage you to. We need somebody like her and … but it really got my attention with these congresswomen. It seems to be an extraordinary authority coming on women for leadership and government. And I know a lot of Christians don’t believe women should carry that kind of authority but I do. I personally do. I really believe we need some more Margaret Thatchers. And I believe… that’s what I’ve been praying for.. for the Lord to raise up….I look forward to the next woman president. I’m not ashamed of that.
I think we’ve got some extraordinary leaders raising up and in these times when there seems such a void of leadership it may be coming through places and people we’re not expecting. And I’m sharing this trying to encourage you to open the eyes of your heart, of your eyes, I want the Lord’s leadership whoever it comes through and I think we’re going to have some extraordinary women to arise for leadership for our country and I’m excite about it …”
Now, let me ask you a question – do you really want the likes of Rick Joyner giving counsel to any of our elected leaders?
