This event happened on October 29 last month. I saw this posted on Pharyngula, but the name sounded familiar. I went over on Talk2Action and there were several stories about her, her friends, and their antics.
Cindy Jacobs is a leader in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement within the larger Charismatic Christian community. NAR churches are extremely cult-like and controlling of their members.
These churches preach a warped version of the Prosperity Gospel. Unlike the general Charismatic or Pentecostal churches, NAR churches preach that Christians need to grab power in this world and control everything in order to bring about the return of Christ. According to Bruce Wilson:
As the top leader of the New Apostolic Reformation, which extensive evidence suggests is Sarah Palin's chosen religious and political movement, C. Peter Wagner proclaimed, on June 21, 2006, that "God has declared through His prophets that the wealth of the wicked will be released to the Kingdom of God," and Wagner declared, threateningly, "the enemies' camp will be plundered."How very Old Testament. Are they going to spare the female virgin non-believers in order to make sex slaves of them? I think death would be preferable than being a sex slave to a toupee clad televangelist. Ewwwwww!
Cindy Jacobs wants to pray for wordly goods and power at the Golden Bull on Wall Street. Has she even read her Bible? According to CBN, Cindy thinks that she can control God and change the stock market in her favor.
Looks like Christian spell casting to me. And these are the same people that are worried about witches casting spells. Looks like a case of projection to me. And what happens when her or her follower's prayers aren't answered? Will they grow tired of waiting? Will they "release" us non-believers to God (kill us) and take our property?
For these and other reasons Cindy is calling for a Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. They are calling for prayer for the stock markets, banks, and financial institutions of the world on the date the stock market crashed in 1929. They are meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and its 12 principal branches around the US that day.
“We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion’s Market,' or God’s control over the economic systems,” she said. “While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.”
