5.30: Riots 2020 and Pentecost: What in the World is Going On?

Last night I watched a beautiful live streaming celebration of Shavout, the Jewish feast of First Fruits — what is known to us by its Greek name — Pentecost. At the same time, I couldn’t help but keep checking Twitter for the latest on the riots in not only Minneapolis, MN, where George Floyd was killed by an overbearing police officer, but also in Atlanta, GA, New York City, Denver, CO, and even here in Phoenix. Thank God the protest here in Phoenix never escalated to a riot — I can’t say that for the others.

Today, more cities were added to the fray, including Salt Lake City! Now, isn’t that the heart of Mormon territory? You couldn’t tell by the group that I watched turn a police cruiser on its side then set it ablaze.

To me, I can’t imagine if any of those people rioting, spewing hate, damaging and destroy property, shops and buildings belonging to innocent people, can call themselves Christian.

What I saw taking place — these riots — goes 100% against the Holy Spirit!

A Pentecost Prayer for America…

Merciful Father, thank you for giving us the precious gift of the Holy Spirit! Right now, in Pentecost 2020, when our nation is literally in flames and there is so much hatred and violence, we desperately need a spiritual revival! I pray as churches are reopening this Pentecost, that each and every person, each and every pastor and preacher, each and every child, woman and man who believes in the salvation and glory of Jesus Christ, be revived and become “on-fire” for Jesus! I pray that this revival spreads like wildfire igniting any and all halfway Christians. Opening the eyes, minds and hearts of those attending churches that preach a watered-down Gospel. I pray that they become seekers of the truth.

I pray Colossians 3:12-17

God, you chose us to be the holy people you love, clothe us with your tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Help us to make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends us. Thank you, Lord for forgiving us, so we must forgive others. Above all, help us to clothe ourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in our hearts. For as members of one body we are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill our lives. Help us to teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom the Holy Spirit gives. As we sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. Help us also, Lord to no matter what we do or say, to do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. I pray this in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!

Soli Deo Gloria — to God Alone be the Glory!
