“Pentecostal Joel Demos Takes on Muslim Ellison”
That’s the title of a recent article in the Apostolic News (link) written by the parents of Minnesota Fifth District’s Joel Demos, introducing their son to the Apostolic community.
You go read the article. But for those of you who are uncomfortable visiting such a site, imma give you a taste:
…Less than three months ago, our own son Joel was reading an article by Karl Rove, appealing for young people to enter the political arena. Joel… felt a spiritual urging to consider the possibilities in his own area. …
His opponent is a four-year incumbent, Keith Ellison – the first Moslem elected to US Congress. … Joel’s battle has been uphill in every way possible, but he believes that God was in this decision and miraculous doors have opened thus far. …
We ask for your prayers that God will use Joel to advance HIS Kingdom and help bring America back to her knees! Joel has passed phase one of this venture … Now, it is crucial that he pass through the second phase successfully, raising the large amount of money … Pray that the finance needed for this venture will miraculously come in from unexpected and solicited sources. Pray that the Word will be fulfilled…
For the Kingdom and for America,
Alan and Valerie Demos
The letter also refers to Matthew 10:18-20. You should probably know what that says because this an election and all:
And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Okay…just so you know what or whom you’d be voting for.
