Dear Fellow Penitent,
Thank you for joining with us in seeking God’s face for the nation. Perhaps you joined with us in collective prayer on the final weekend of October ’22? If so, thank you! It was heartening to hear humble petitions for our Churches and expressions of desire that we reaffirm our confidence in the truth of Scripture in the face of various indications that it has been undermined. Our special focus, for this our inaugural year, was the recovery of a more principled doctrine of the early chapters of Genesis – recognising the awful cost incurred throughout the culture by the Churches’ compromise with the plain historical account of (six-day) Creation, the Fall, the worldwide Flood, etc. Both cosmic (Big Bang) evolutionism & naturalistic Darwinism have convincingly bewitched the masses and provided a ready-made excuse for many to compromise. Via academia and mainstream media our totalitarian humanistic Establishment promulgate propaganda in the guise of various half-truths serve as dressed up as ‘verifiable facts.’ Our failure to build a robust comprehensive worldview makes ourselves and the rising generation vulnerm able to its lies. Worse still is the abject failure of Christian communities to provide an adequate Biblically informed education for their children supposing that a State controlled national curriculum is religiously neutral.
What can be done? We must seek to inform our fellow brothers and sisters of the depth and scope of our losses. Whatever strategic mistakes we have made along the way – especially over recent decades – we must humbly recognise God’s hand of judgement upon us. We have turned our backs on Him; we have sown bad seed and have reaped its inevitable rotten fruit (see Gal 6:7). But God is not to be mocked; we urgently need to acknowledge His providential wrath expressing itself all around us through the questionable Covid health-scare, crippling Government lockdowns, financial collapse, Climategate, Wokeism, Abortion holocaust, spiralling debt national, unwarranted international warfare, etc, etc.
We adopted as our call to arms 2 Chronicles 7:13-14…
“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
We shall continue to seek God in repentance on the first Sunday of each month from 8.15am→ 10.00am. Please join with us via the Zoom link on the Get Involved page.
Additionally, we shall post your letters/comments and regular podcast updates featuring pertinent discussions amongst ourselves and others. By such means we shall endeavour to keep you informed of our plans to advance this project in the spirit of Abraham Kuyper who once declared,
“One desire has been the ruling passion of my life. One high motive has acted like a spur upon my mind and soul. and sooner than that I should seek escape from the sacred necessity that is laid upon me, let the breath of life fail me. It is this: That in spite of all worldly opposition, God’s holy ordinances shall be established again in the home, in the school and in the State for the good of the people; to carve as it were into the conscience of the nation the ordinances of the Lord, to which Bible and Creation bear witness, until the nation pays homage again to God”
