Re-digging the Wells of The 1905 Revival

Posted in Colorado Overview

The headlines in the January 20, 1905 Denver Post read “Entire City Pauses For Prayer Even At The High Tide Of Business As The Soul Rises Above Sordid Thoughts.”

Businesses closed their doors for prayer between noon and 2:00 PM at the request of J. Wilbur Chapman who came to town and called the people to pray.  A quote from this article: “Seldom has such a remarkable sight been witnessed-an entire great city, in the middle of a busy week day, bowing before the throne of Heaven and asking and receiving the blessings of the King of the Universe.”

Pray with us that the wells of the 1905 revival are re-dug and opened to bring a new awakening to the people of Colorado that permanently transforms us into the people God has destined us to be.

Sand Creek Massacre Healing

Posted in Colorado Overview

On June 20, 2014, Bishop Elaine Stanovsky (of the United Methodist Church) and 650 members of the Rocky Mountain Annual Conference made a pilgrimage to the site of the Sand Creek Massacre, traveling three hours by bus to the hot, barren place near Eads, Colo., which was dedicated in 2007 as a national historic landmark. The bishops, guest bishops and Native Americans from the area—including descendants of those who were attacked that day in 1864—recalled the incidents leading up to the Nov. 29, 1864, slaughter and reflected on the impact on Native people and others. Stanovsky and other clergy marked visitors on their foreheads with ashes as a symbol of atonement. Henrietta Mann, founder of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College in Oklahoma, and a great-granddaughter of one of the survivors of the 1864 battle, told the United Methodist guests about her ancestors in a tribute to those ancestors.

Declaration of Repentance

Posted in Colorado Overview

Declaration of Repentance – Wednesday, June 27, 2012

We agree here today as citizens of the United States of America, residents of Colorado and as citizens of God’s Kingdom. Our American citizenship being conferred to us by mutual places of birth and residence in God’s providence; our Heavenly citizenship being purchased for us by the finished work of Jesus’ death and resurrection on the cross in which we corporately trust. We recognize that as members of both the earthly and heavenly kingdoms, it is our sacred duty and trust to bridge the gap between our state and the Almighty. It has fallen to us, and to our watch, to bear witness of His righteous judgments in the face of impending calamity – especially the fires throughout the state. We now endeavor to sound the trumpet of a watchman thus commissioned by God and stationed upon the ramparts of our great state of Colorado. (Ezekiel 33:1-7)

On behalf of our statewide sins and to any degree in which we have personally partaken we do now repent for:

General Information

Posted in Colorado Overview

 

State Motto:   Nothing without Providence

Preamble:  We, the people of Colorado, with profound reverence for the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, in order to form a more independent and perfect government; establish justice; insure tranquility; provide for the common defense; promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the "State of Colorado".

Colorado is the 38th state:

The number thirty denotes; in a higher degree, the perfection of Divine order, as marking the right moment. The number eight means new beginning or first of a new season. Declare with us that Colorado and this nation will come into a higher degree of perfection in God’s divine order and this will be a new beginning of heaven’s revelation of the wonders and power of our God to accomplish all His Kingdom purposes in this land.

Colorado Geography:

The average elevation of Colorado (6800 ft. above sea level) is higher than any other state and it is the home of 54 mountain peaks that reach over 14,000 feet.   The Continental Divide, stretching across the state, makes Colorado a watershed.

Out of the mountains of Colorado flow the headwaters of 9 significant rivers including the Colorado River, which flows west and is principle drainage for the entire southwestern United States.  The Rio Grande, Arkansas and South Platte are three of the main rivers flowing east. Colorado provides water for Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California.

Colorado is rich with natural resources including oil, gas, gold and silver. More gold was mined out of Cripple Creek, Leadville, and Central City than all of California combined.

Military:

There are six major military bases in Colorado.  The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is located in Colorado.  NORAD is responsible for “watching”, “warning” and “responding” to threats on North America.

Communications:

Colorado is satellite friendly. It has been reported that the 105th longitudinal line, which goes directly North to South through the Denver Metro area is very significant.  It provides a satellite single hop from Europe to Asia. Satellite is the favored method of transporting television for cable distribution in local markets. Denver became the new location for many cable companies in the 90’s. Now Denver is the unrivaled hub for cable television distribution in the world. That distribution goes to all continents and serves local area cable vendors and hotels and resorts. “Colorado Companies are making millions in pornography, “feeding on flesh.”  Denver Post 4/3/2004

Restoration of Colorado wealth begins with Southern Ute:

The Southern Ute suffered decades of oppression and poverty. But today, with their Red Willow Offshore, LLC and other tribal businesses the 1400 or so tribal members are collectively worth billions. They built their empire by taking control of the vast coal bed methane and natural gas deposits that lie under their land. The Southern Ute Reservation sits on one of richest gas fields in the country.

Defiled Roots and Their Fruit:

In 1967, Colorado became the first state to reform its abortion law based on the American Law Institute (ALI) recommendation. The new Colorado statute permitted abortions if the pregnant woman's life or physical or mental health were endangered, if the fetus would be born with a severe physical or mental defect, or if the pregnancy had resulted from rape or incest. Other states began to follow suit, and by 1972, 13 states had so-called ALI statutes.


Same sex marriage was initiated in Colorado 29 years ago. The Denver Post on April 3, 2004 reported that on April 21, 1975 two homosexual men Adams and Sullivan from California were granted a marriage license in Boulder, CO. Before long the practice was stopped by the Colorado Attorney General expressing other Colorado laws invalidated any such marriages. But the Adams & Sullivan “marriage” has never been declared invalid. It is still listed in the Colorado archive: Adams listed as groom and Sullivan listed as bride.


Pornography is widespread in Colorado  An article in the Denver Post April 3, 2004 stated Colorado’s strong high-tech foundation, its history as a cable-satellite-and TV hub and a technology evolution has made it easier to deliver adult material directly in to the homes. Colorado Companies are making millions in pornography, “feeding on flesh.”
