Joel's Army & The Call

The Call is a movement emphasizing prayer, worship and fasting for spiritual breakthrough in our country. Lou Engle, the founder of The Call, believes the nation is being held accountable for how it is being run. The nation and the Church are buckling under an escalating spiritual and moral crisis. They want to see revival in our land, but I'm not so sure I want these people leading it. This is because Lou Engle preaches the Latter Day Rain heresies – which of course the Kansas City Prophets are fully steeped in.

The Call has ties to Joel's Army, the same folks who seek Charismatic revolution in the Church. Joel's Army believers are hard-core Christian dominionists, meaning they believe that America, along with the rest of the world, should be governed by conservative Christians and a conservative Christian interpretation of biblical law. [1]

In my opinion, the coming New Apostolic Reformation revolution within the Church is dependent upon the need for another revival, similar to that of the Lakeland revival in Florida - but bigger. On September 3rd-4th, The Call will be meeting in Sacramento. It will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the first meeting, which was located in Washington, DC, when 400,000 young people showed up for the cause.

The connection between The Call and the C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformations "Joel's Army" is evident by the people participating in the rally, such as his minions: Bill Johnson and Dutch Sheets.

The leadership seems to be fully focused on our young people. Young people have been notorious agents of change, which is why Socialists/Communists use them to bring about revolution. 

On the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders is Cindy Jacobs.  On August 14, 2000, Jacobs issued “A Prophetic Call to Revolution” to Christian youth. This prophecy foretold that certain churches would become official “command posts for revolution” and that God now was calling “radical revolutionaries to the church.”
(Speaking for the Lord:) “For I would say to you, my children, there is a page turning in the heavenlies, and at the top of this page I have one word, and it's 'revolution.' And I am getting ready to write a new page of history among the believers of this nation...." "...And the Lord says, I am calling for an invasion from these churches, from my command posts. And the Lord says get ready, get ready, get ready, for it begins today.”
Since learning about the New Apostolic Reformation and Joel's Army, I began to wonder about the recent teaching in the Church on fear. Several Word of Faith teachers such as Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland and many others have focused on overcoming fear. Many people do have fear in their lives, but unlike the fear brought about when fighting as a revolutionary.

Within one of the websites Cindy Jacobs is associated with, it shows a series that she teaches on fear. The description reads: "Nations all over the world have seen change by understanding and applying these principles. Fearless will equip you to walk in your faith victorious and as an agent of transformation." [2]

It is hard to determine whether they have to power to steer the Church with their agenda. I'm going to speculate that since Rick Joyner and his connection with Knights of Malta factors into this, I suspect they will.
