The United States was founded on godly principles; principles of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When Rep. Emanuel Cleaver invoked the name of Brahma in his January 3 prayer, he invoked the name of a pagan god. What does this mean for our country?


[Darris McNeely] I truly believe that something awful has been unleashed in the United States of America. I've yet to make a comment on the attack on the United States Capitol building on January 6th of this year that, of course, just stunned everyone, something that was terrible. It was horrible. It was wrong. Two people died in that. And I thought it might be time for us to put that into a little bit more perspective with the few weeks that have passed by since that time. I think we were all shocked by that and condemn any effort to attack the United States Capitol. It was the first time that something like that has happened there since the war of 1812 and it was British troops at that time that took place.

But what I wanna really focus on is perhaps something that no one else has talked about. No news coverage has said this. I've written about it in an upcoming "Beyond Today" article in our magazine. Three days before that event took place on January 3rd, the present Congress was sworn in. It was a Sunday. As that Congress opened up, a particular Congressman, his name was Emanuel Cleaver, from Missouri, gave the opening prayer. And as he gave that prayer and brought it to a conclusion, here's what he said, "May the Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon us and give us peace, peace in our families, peace across this land, and dare I ask, oh, Lord, peace, even in this chamber." So far, so good. But then he concluded, "We ask it in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma, and God known by many names, by many different faiths." And then he said, "Amen," and then he said awoman. Most people focused on the amen and the awoman and the point that he was trying to make about gender issues and gender politics. But what he said before to me is far more interesting to look at and important because he called upon the name Brahma, the chief deity of the Hindu religion, a pagan deity and the God He said known by many names by many different faiths.

This Congressman invoked a pagan deity by prayer upon the House Chamber in the United States Capitol building. That was a sacrilege. That in itself was a desecration.

It was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that America was founded upon and people believing in that God, the God that is revealed in the Bible. That was the God that is intended in the model of the United States of "In God we trust." And it is that same God, who in the Pledge of Allegiance we ask and say that we are one nation under God. It's not Brahma. It's not God known by any other religion. What that congressman did was invoke the name of a pagan deity.

The Apostle Paul had something to say about demons and idolatry. In 1 Corinthians 10, he said this, "What am I saying? That an idol is anything or what is offered to idols is anything, rather that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of the demons. You cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons." That's 1 Corinthians 10:19 1 Corinthians 10:19What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
American King James Version×
, 21."Those who worship idols," Paul says, "are worshipping demons behind those."

Pagan deities invoked in the House of Representatives brought down the name of a pagan deity, behind which is a demon. This is what the Bible says. It was, as I say, a desecration and a sacrilege and it was invoked in the Chambers of the United States House of Representatives. Three days later, a mob attacked and those lawmakers had to flee for their lives in the moment, in the business that was taking place. That I think is what people haven't focused upon.

I think something awful has been unleashed upon this land. And it bears our consideration, as we think through the events that we are living through right now and have been for several months with problems and difficulties in America. God is not pleased with what happened. I ask myself and I wonder, has God began the process of removing His presence and His blessing off of this great land?

Time will tell. But what happened in that House Chamber that day was not good. And all of us should think about that and understand it, in light of the Biblical revelation that God tells us.

That's BT Daily. Join us next time.

    I am not surprised one bit. Hegelian dialectic is being played in our political system and the satanic secret societies are now doing things boldly in your face. The Masons infiltrated America a long time ago but it's only obvious to those who know it.

    This is what I think our country was founded on, quoted from The United Nations on Human Rights: “Freedom of religion or religious liberty is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance. “ That is what the country was founded on, Freedom of Religion. What was really missed byMr. McNeely is the evils of White Supremacy that has plagued our country for decades and that our ex President Trump supported and edged on through his bigotry, racist and xenophobic platform over the past 4 years. I feel that this what needs to be addressed if we’re going to address the issue at all.

    Brahma is the first god in the Hindu triumvirate, or trimurti. The triumvirate consists of three gods who are responsible for the creation, upkeep and destruction of the world. The other two gods are Vishnu and Shiva. ... Brahma is the least worshipped god in Hinduism today. ~Google Take a close look. Do you see the fruits of the trinity doctrine? But to us there is but ONE GOD, the FATHER, "of" WHOM are all things, and we in HIM; and One Master Yeshua the Anointed, "by" Whom are all things, and we "by" Him. Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge...

    At two minutes before 11 o’clock in the evening on 11/7/1983, a thunderous explosion tore through the second floor of the U.S. Capitol’s Senate wing. Since the area was virtually deserted at the time, there were no casualties. Minutes before the bomb went off, a caller claiming to represent the “Armed Resistance Unit” warned a Capitol switchboard operator that a bomb had been placed near the chamber — purportedly in retaliation for the recent U.S. military actions in Grenada and Lebanon. May 1988 FBI agents arrested seven members of the “Resistance Conspiracy”: Marilyn Jean Buck, Linda Sue Evans, Susan Rosenberg, Timothy Blunk, Alan Berkman, Laura Whitehorn and Elizabeth Ann Duke.

    The 1954 United States Capitol shooting was a terrorist attack on March 1, 1954, by four Puerto Rican nationalists wanting Puerto Rico's independence from US rule. They shot 30 rounds from semi-automatic pistols from the Ladies' Gallery (a balcony for visitors) of the House of Representatives chamber in the United States Capitol.

    Thank you, Darris, for informing about that prayer! What a shock! What you had to say is extremely important and sobering. With all that has been happening, it will be no surprise if God withdraws His blessings from our beloved country.
  • Frank1
    I noticed this about the 'prayer' immediately while others were making jokes about the man's 'awoman'. He called upon demons and 3 days later the demons answered! Those in government for the most part are thieves, liars , murderers, perverts and anti-moral. Then they ask God to bless America? God is not mocked,-we are reaping what we sow.
  • wmitchell0901
    My sentiments exactly!

    Thank you for this video. It was rather disgusting to see this happen in Congress, but not all that surprising when you realize that those who are supposed to represent the people are merely puppets of a greater evil plan. As the adversary and his servants get bolder, we need to get just as bold about our faith. If the Congressman wasn't afraid to use the name of a pagan deity, then we should not be ashamed to use the name of our Creator, YHWH, the great I AM. We certainly don't want to be included as one of those whom Christ will be ashamed of before His Father.

    True in what is said on this topic. But, the issue of paganism did not start on Jan 3rd nor with the sin of abortion. It's with Christmas practices, Sunday worship, injustice against black Americans, a former lying US President, constant racism and hatred. God is not happy with none of it, so we need to be about our Father's business in spreading the precious and fantasy news about His coming Kingdom and the message of repentance.

    To be fair, we should say "multiple lying US Presidents", since this is much more accurate in describing the leadership we've had over the past century. But much of what we have experienced over the decades has been controlled propaganda fed to us by the media, including much of the racial issues. The adversary uses media to divide us so that we direct our hatred toward each other and not him. It's all designed that way and carried out by his human servants.
    Thank you, Mr. McNeely, for your comments regarding that prayer that was given. Your right I didn't hear anything about that on the news. I am absolutely appalled by what he said!! I'm also very saddened at how our country has dismissed our God and Creator!!
  • Mavrick13
    I caught that so call prayer and knew it was a pagan god but not which one there are so many. It was a slap in the face of congress!

    Ephesians 6:12 " For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
  • annie.ross
    Amen. And the sickening part is being amongst all the darkness and spiritual neglect and ignorance all about us that don’t even see any of this as Anything than freedom ... and it is not ... it is gross and hurtful I know to me as I also cry for our Father and how this causes Him so much pain that I can’t even fathom. Lord Jesus come quickly
  • Breidenthal
    Thanks for that statement!! I admit I was distracted by the focus on Amen and Awoman. No wonder the pagans say Peace and there is violence and friction.
  • mikerow
