"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." -Matthew 16:18

During the 1900's the church lost its edge and became tolerant of wickedness. In times past, the church contended with the wicked but many things have changed in the dispensation of the "sloppy agape" age.

However, when Jesus Christ said that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church, He said this with the intention of the church being aggressive and militant. Unfortunately, the church has became lazy and no longer goes on the offensive. However, a new dispensation of reformation is reviving the church of Jesus Christ.

Many Christians are waking up to the lost idea of the church triumphant. As our armor is only designed for offensive engagement so to Christ has only promised victory to His church when it is engaged in offensive warfare.

General Patton said that digging foxholes was but digging graves. As we look through history there is a common trait among all great military commanders--they all fought offensive wars. The problem with the church in the 1900's is that it retreated to defensive positions giving up valuable ground that now must be taken again by charging the gates of hell.

Gates are, of course, stationary and do not move. The only way that we can prevail against the gates of hell, as Christ promised, is to storm the gates. The gates of hell cannot stop the advancement of the army of God. If the church becomes defensive the gates will stand.

However, in 2003, we are witnessing the revitalization of the church of Jesus Christ. We have came out of our defensive positions, or as some put it, "out of the closet." The winds of revival are blowing as the "spirit of Montgomery" has now blowing from "sea to shining sea."

We will no longer remain silent. On September 25th, 2003, Union Christian Church put the Federal Court in Indianapolis, Indiana on notice. We proclaimed that their rulings were "no longer binding upon us, upon our children, or upon our nation." We shall resist their attempts to destroy our Godly heritage. We shall fight them with every ounce of strength we have through Jesus Christ.

The revolution has begun and we shall not retreat anymore. We will not bend or break as the kingdoms of this world are rocked, shaken, and crumbled by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ and the Word of our testimony.

"And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire." -Hebrews 12:24-29

Union Christian Church and the Independent Christian Action Network is storming the gates of hell without compromise, without fear, and without quarter. We shall charge into this extension of the Second American Revolution under the black flag and as "Stonewall" Jackson said, "Give'em the bayonet!"

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." -Hebrews 4:12

Therefore, we issue the call for soldiers. Who will go forth to the battle? It's time to take a stand!

Stand

Performed by Petra

 

Verse:

You had a blank stare-there in your easy chair

You watched as things got out of hand

But now your eyes blink and you begin to think

Of what could happen if you stand

You think about the ground you might have lost in this round

Your eyes are open to the things that had you bound

And then you rise up from your sleep and put your foot down

You take one final grasp of air before you drown and take a...

 

Chorus:

Stand have done all this

Stand with emphasis

Stand no analysis

Even when you don't understand

Put your armor on

Stand on the foundation

Stand rely upon

The strength that has always been there

 

Verse:

And now you stand firm-but not on your terms

We have no power all alone

But you can feel safe there with your shield of faith

The inner strength in you has grown

And when you drawn your sword the enemy is fair game

We're more than conquerors in Jesus' name so take a...

 

Chorus:

Stand have done all this

Stand with emphasis

Stand no analysis

Even when you don't understand

Put your armor on

Stand on the foundation

Stand rely upon

The strength that has always been there

Stand all alone if there's no one around you

Stand on your own

Stand through the night-wait for the morning to bring you the strength

To finish the fight

Stand up tall-Stand or fall

Stand your ground-Don't stand down

Stand connected-Stand corrected

Stand in faith-Stand elected
