#Occupy Wall Street has garnered plenty of press these last couple of weeks. A protest that is based in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, #Occupy is a shot against the bow of Wall Street greed and corruption that has manipulated American politics at We The People’s expense.
Originally thought to be a short lived protest by many, #Occupy has become not just a movement, but a virtual organism. It has a life of its own, it has weathered the harsh environment of rain, NYPD, and media critics. And like any other organism, it’s spawning offspring in other US cities.
As a follower of Jesus, I wholeheartedly support this movement. Like many Americans I’ve watched my day to day living beaten by Wall Street shenanigans and DC corrupt politics. And like the Man from Galilee, we need more people who will speak truth to power even if it hurts. The days of “waiting on God” like many conservatives want to do, while being backed by Wall Street are been done. God is calling us to speak up against these Wall Street crooks and their cronies in Washington.
Occupy Wall Street, #Occupy, until Christ comes. Occupy until He is manifested in real change for all people. Occupy in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, wherever the Spirit leads you. Occupy until God says “well done”.
God is on your side.
