OK, I thought this was really cool! You guys HAVE to read this!
Dear Friend:This past Tuesday, the McCain / Palin Bus came through a little towncalled, Lebanon , Ohio . The LORD allowed me to go to the Rally givingthem a message that He wanted me to personally deliver.Sunday Night - a burden hit me that would only shake me to my knees - Iprayed and wept for our Nation. Never has my heart been so broken beforeGod. I literally interceded for these wonderful people who do not deserveall the hate against them. . . .Monday and into Monday Night - the burden of prayer was so heavy that I wasliterally shaking and could not stop weeping. ( I didn't know that theywere coming to Ohio .) I prayed and walked and wept and walked. . . . onand on.Tuesday at 2:00 A.M. - God spoke these words to me - 'Go turn the Radioon!' Immediately the Reporter's Words w ere - 'McCain & Palin Bus to be inLebanon later this morning for a 10:00 A.M. Rally!'Immediately on hearing that news, I heard God again...God said, 'You are to go. You will meet them and give them a message forMe!'. . . . .I didn't stop praying until I drove over to the town and parkedthe car. The News would later report they were expecting 5,000 people andthe actual head-count of those who had been scanned was more than 10,000people.I simply obeyed...and God actually told me where to stand, who to talkto...and when to be on the move. . . . . and even those standing beside youmay just be an Angel.I struck up a conversation with an agent on the ground - he simply said, 'Ican't allow you to stand here!' Here is where the bus was going to actualpull up . They had to make a much larger perimeter so the entire area wasnow being moved back several blocks. . . . He told me to go through themetal detector zone and just watch from the back. So, that's what I did.Looking over the shoulders and backs and heads of all those people...I knewit would take a miracle for what GOD told me to do.As I was standing there, two Boy Scouts came running up myback...literally, they almost knocked me to the ground because they wererunning so fast behind me.... Their Scout Leader and several smallerboys were behind them...but as the first two were trying to push throughthe crowd, saying they were late...the smaller scouts were left in theirdust. The Scout Leader who was with a McCain Rep from the State grabbed meand told me to bring the other Scouts up front as they continued to pushthrough.As the Rep was shouting back at me......the people parted just like Godparted the Re d Sea.! When I got there I was fifteen feet from thepodium. GOD said, 'Stand here, and don't move from this spot.'Within five minutes...the bus pulled up and around the other side McCain,Sarah Palin and her husband Todd stepped up and the speeches took off. Iwas where God placed me...and even Sarah Palin and Todd were standing on myside of the stage. I made eye contact, I gave them thumbs upgestures...and I knew they were just happy to see me standing there. Ha Ha . . . . .A little lady who stood by me, reached up and told the Rep thatthey had promised a picture with her because she was the one who had lost ason in Iraq , recently. The Rep confirmed she would get a picture withthem and they would talk to her. When McCain came to hug her... heimmediately shook my hand and following his moment with her, I shook hishand . . . . I said, 'God wants you to know that I'm praying for you, Sir!'He thanked me and kept smiling. I repeated that phrase to him five times!He grabbed my hands and looked right into my eyes and said, 'I won't makeit with out prayer. Sir, Thank you for praying for me, and don't let oneday go by that you don't pray for me. I need all the prayers that I canget. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!'As he moved to my right, Sarah Palin, came over to my left side...standingover the crowd and then looking at the little lady who had lost the son. .. . Sarah came and got on her hands and knees on that side of the stageand hugged that little Mom, telling her, '...it was not in vain.. . . . . ..It was at this moment Sarah Palin, reached out for me to help her up and asI was assisting her to stand I was now face to face with her and GOD said,'Open up your Mouth and I will fill it.'Here is what came out... 'God wants you to know that you are a present day Esther!'[She immediately began to cry]!'God wants to tell you that you are Chosen for such a time as this!' 'Youare called, and chosen to be a leader.' 'Don't lose heart and don't fearman.' 'The news and nay-sayers and criticizers are going to be veryhateful toward you... and in the days ahead they are going to turn up theheat...but do not fear.''You are a present day Esther.' You are an Esther. You are an Esther!'Keep your eyes on GOD and know that He has chosen you to Reign!' 'Staystrong...be strong...don't tire. Don't be weary in well-doing. Bestrong.' Her husband Todd came over and I told him what I told her. He began tocry. I emphasized the fact that he was to guard her at this time...andknow that '...she is GOD-CALLED and GOD-ANOINTED.' ...this is a GOD-THINGand your wife is a Present day Esther...she is for God to use at thistime...She is an Esther...she is an Esther...she is an Esther.' You willbe hated...but stand strong...GOD has called both of you to stand!' 'Weare praying and I am praying for you...!'At this moment, McCain came right to where I was finishing talking to Toddand I told Mr. McCain exactly what I told to Sarah and Todd Palin.'Mr. McCain, ...they are called of God and she is an Esther.' 'Don't losehope and don't lose heart.' We are praying for all of you!'He shook my hand and with a deep look of understanding what I had justsaid, he said, 'Thank you for your prayers and support...I really do meanthat!' And he turned and shook more hands...and I watched them as they wentthrough the crowd.When I got to my car I sat there for quite a long time...knowing the GOD ofthe Universe had just used me to deliver a message confirming to Sarah andTodd to realize they are truly chosen vessels of God.I wept. I have not stopped praying and crying. My heart is full knowingthey had to have all the staging and all the hype and all the crowd...butthe GOD of Heaven and Earth...wanted to give them a Divine-God-Appointment!To God be all the GLORY and HONOR. Do you want to know if I believe Godcan speak. Yes...Absolutely!Burdened for all of our Leaders!Pastor Mark Arnold ( Ohio )
