Former SBC President Dr. Ronnie Floyd will assume the role of President of the National Day of Prayer. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the ecumenical May event has been organized since 1952. It is a time when millions of people of all religions stop what they are doing and pray in unity with one another to whichever god they worship for the well being of America.
The National Day of Prayer must become a multi-church, multi-denominational, multi-ministry, multi-generational, multi-ethnic, and multi-lingual movement of prayer for America.
I believe this is possible by having strategic partnerships with churches, ministries, and denominations. We must create authentic relationships with all people regardless of who and where they are, whatever their age, stage, or vocation may be. With a convictional and competent staff team, we will exemplify servant leadership to all persons. Source
It all sounds good, until you discover that National Day of Prayer has been hijacked by the counterfeit New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement, which seeks to re-establish the governing office of Apostle. These modern-day Apostles, along with their Prophets, have a stated goal of building an end-times army to build the Kingdom here on earth. The NAR movement schedules frequent mega-stadium revival events to unify religions and take dominion over cultural seven “spheres” or mountains in order to activate Jesus’ return. That’s not biblical Christianity, but another gospel. (Here’s what your church needs to know about the NAR.)
Last year we reported that Anne Graham Lotz became Chairman of the National Day Of Prayer, after having received a ” Prayer Mantle of Leadership” from her predecessor, Shirley Dobson. The NAR is the only group of professing Christians who use the term “prayer mantle.”
Why are so many preachers now talking about mantles? We hear them figuratively “bestowing a mantle on the next generation,” like Hillsong’s Christine Cain did at Passion 2015, or Saddleback’s Kenny Luck. Kris Vallotton got the “Mantle of Jesus Christ.” Remember when NAR leaders bestowed a mantle of government on Donald Trump? These leaders are not looking for the Kingdom of God to come; they’re building their own right here on earth, and appointing themselves as divine leaders.
Floyd is the senior pastor of Cross Church and past president of the Southern Baptist Convention. No stranger to multi-mega unity gatherings in which doctrinal lines are blurred at best, Floyd joined hands with Word of Faith leader and Catholic apologist Kenneth Copeland for last year’s The Gathering event.
Floyd also joined with IHOP’s Mike Bickle for OneThing, which featured an interesting mix of Catholics and SeekerMergent leaders in the Evangelical conference circuit.
About the appointment of Floyd to the top seat at National Day of Prayer, Jeff Maples over at Pulpit and Pen reports:
Remember that guy we warned you about in 2014? The guy Al Mohler nominated for the Southern Baptist Convention presidency? The guy JD Greear nominated for a second term? Yeah, that’s him. The one that joined hands with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and Mike Bickle of IHOPKC and downplayed the authority of Scripture as a “matter of secondary importance.” The one who promoted several cult leaders and dangerous heresies such as the “sow a seed” prosperity gospel. (For a recap of Ronnie Floyd’s SBC presidency, see here.)
What does the Bible say about this kind of ecumenical unity?
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? — 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
