All the pages under the 40 day fast all work together to explain the purpose of the Bible Baptist Church of York starting Jan. 1 of 2020 with a 40 day fast.
JUST TO BE CLEAR:
We are not asking each individual to fast for 40 days. We are asking for our church to fast for 40 days. Meaning, spread out over 40 days we have different people fasting each day for the 40 day duration. Some may fast for 3 of the 40 days, some may fast for 7 days, but over the 40 days there are people from BBC fasting for God.
EXTENDED FASTING MUST BE SPIRIT LED:
Be sure to pray on this and have a Spirit led direction as to how long to fast and as to what type of fast. The types of fasts are covered and explained under “TEACHING ON FASTING”.
AT A CROSSROADS:
There is no question we are at a crossroads politically, economically, spiritually, morally, and the list could go on! We have got to do something about it! Not just go down to D.C. and meet with our government officials (although I am and BBC is 100% behind meeting our officials), not just make videos for pro-life, not just feed the hungry, not just pass out tracts (again I stress that BBC is 100% supportive and is also engaged and involved with all these type of activities), but the funding power that can break the strongholds and the gates that Satan has fortified over centuries of time can be accomplished by the church praying and fasting! So, here we are approaching 2020… what are we going to do about it?
IT IS NOW OR NEVER:
As was said by Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” This rings even louder now in 2020. If we neglect this call of prayer and fasting as the only source of changing this country and ultimately world, God will move His hand of power and blessing to another country. America as we know it will no longer exist. The old red, white, and blue will only be a memory in pages of history. Our kids and grandkids will live in bondage to evil and darkness. May we fight through prayer and fasting for the unleashing of angels, for the outpouring of His Spirit, and for the Almighty to extend His arm to sweep this nation by His hand unto repentance and righteousness unto Him.
