Andrew Comiskey – The moral majority has become a minority

The following excerpt is from the essay “Mercy 3: Sweet Water for Bitter” on Andrew Comiskey’s blog: … “Election Day, November 2012. For the first time in US history, each of the four states voted favorably for ‘gay marriage.’ (Never before in any state election had a popular vote carried ‘gay marriage.’) April 2013. The Supreme Court upheld ‘gay marriage’ in California. Dreadfully clear: the moral majority had become a minority.”

“That Election Day, we at DSM prayed with the Twin Cities House of Prayer, a venue situated on a campus church of the University of Minneapolis. Midway through our vigil, I took a walk through the campus and was stunned to behold a large minority of students who were almost unrecognizable in their gender identities. With painful clarity I could see how the powerful ‘spirit of the age’ had conformed these young adults to an image far less than that of their Creator.”

“Evil is real and effectual in these gender wars. The enemy of our souls is disintegrating the lives of a generation. He loves to desecrate who God deems apt representations of Himself.”

“Back in the prayer room, the leader asked all men and women who had come out of homosexuality to come forward and testify of how Jesus was setting them free from its domination. Humble, earnest voices witnessed to the God of mercy who met them in such kindness and authority: the Father, revealed in Jesus, who had aligned them with true personhood.”

“I went out a second time onto the campus but this time I could see that our prayers had loosed a healing flood that was pouring out to the crowds. I thought immediately of Ezekiel 47: the healing waters rising in the temple with power to make even bitter waters sweet. In spite of the majority steeped in such bitter waters, I took heart. God is not discouraged. He attends to the cry of those who plead for mercy on behalf of the ‘harassed and helpless.’ He will pour out rivers of sweet water upon the humble and broken. He will set them free.”
