A New Decree
As in the days of Esther, decrees are being released in our nation that are not based on Truth, Life, or the Word of God. These decrees are destructive to our way of life and to our basic Christian beliefs. Therefore as those who hold some spiritual authority over the heartland of America, we, the Apostolic Council for Missouri Prayer Global Mission, have taken a stand for righteousness, justice, and Godly principles.
Please read "A New Decree" and if you are in agreement with it, release it as a new decree that overrides false and destructive pronouncements and send it to those who desire to reverse the presidential, judicial, and or congressional decrees that stand against the Word of Truth.
This is a time when decisions are being made for your future and the future of your children and grandchildren that are meant to remove our rights and privileges as believers in Jesus Christ. We must stand together decreeing righteousness and justice in our nation.
We go before the King of kings and the Lord of lords asking for a reversal of destructive decrees. As in the days of Esther, we must war against that which has been released to destroy us. As for me and my sphere of influence, we chose LIFE, who is a person, Jesus Christ.

A New Decree
Whereas The Apostolic Council of the Great State of Missouri, standing in a position as gatekeeper for the nation, and also standing in a position for Truth and the Design of God, hereby
Renounce and reject the proclamation made by the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, that America is no longer a Christian nation.
Whereas this nation was founded on Godly principles, formed as a nation under God, and stands on that foundation, we decree that this foundation will not be destroyed or changed by the voice of man. The belief in Christian principles and a nation in need of a Savior and Lord is inherent in our constitution.
America was born a Christian nation and is still a Christian nation and will forever be. Just as a horse cannot be renamed a "cow" and it be so; even so America, born a Christian nation cannot be renamed.
We further renounce and reject the president's decree that June 2009 is a month to honor homosexuals.
Homosexuality is a sin and will forever be a sin. The eternal word of Almighty God has determined it so!
Although Barack Hussein Obama is trying to issue a decree that supersedes the Word of God, it will not stand because "the Word of the Lord stands forever."
Every creature besides man knows the eternal order of created things. Only rebellious homosapiens in their foolishness defy the eternal order set by the Creator.
Many of our leaders and rulers have taken counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
"Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us." Psalms 2
These presidential decrees have exalted themselves against the knowledge and design of God.
Therefore, we, the Apostolic Council of the State of Missouri, issue a new decree, tying in to the Godly foundation of this nation, that American is a Christian nation, and that God's design for marriage, between one man and one woman, will not be changed by presidential, congressional, or judicial decree.
It is our desire to see those caught in the delusion of homosexuality and lesbianism come to their senses and escape out of this trap of the enemy. We cannot condone any decree that would lift this up as an alternative lifestyle. There is no alternative to the design of God.
We choose submission to those authorities over us who are submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. Where that differs, we choose to follow the Lord. In our sphere of authority, we will decree righteousness. We will not condone rebellion, sin, appeasement, or ungodly decrees with silence.
America is a Christian nation and forever will be. We decree July, 2009 as a month to honor marriage, defined as a covenant between one man and one woman.
