UPDATE:  September 23, 2008 – Video Found of WitchHunter Praying Over Palin Click Here

Palin linked electoral success to prayer of Kenyan witchhunter

Blog_hstrange_2 The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witchhunt against a Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells.

Muthee_400156gAt a speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8 this year, Mrs Palin described how Thomas Muthee had laid his hands on her when he visited the church as a guest preacher in late 2005, prior to her successful gubernatorial bid.

In video footage of the speech, she is seen saying: “As I was mayor and Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he’s so bold. And he was praying “Lord make a way, Lord make a way.”

“And I’m thinking, this guy’s really bold, he doesn’t even know what I’m going to do, he doesn’t know what my plans are. And he’s praying not “oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,” no, he just prayed for it. He said “Lord make a way and let her do this next step. And that’s exactly what happened.”

She then adds: “So, again, very very powerful, coming from this church,” before the presiding pastor comments on the “prophetic power” of the event.

An African evangelist, Pastor Muthee has given guest sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God on at least 10 occasions in his role as the founder of the Word of Faith Church, also known as the Prayer Cave.

Pastor Muthee founded the Prayer Cave in 1989 in Kiambu, Kenya after “God spoke” to him and his late wife Margaret and called him to the country, according to the church’s website.

The pastor speaks of his offensive against a demonic presence in the town in a trailer for the evangelical video “Transformations”, made by Sentinel Group, a Christian research and information agency.

“We prayed, we fasted, the Lord showed us a spirit of witchcraft resting over the place,” Pastor Muthee says.

After the spirit was broken, the crime rate dropped to almost zero and there was “explosive church growth” while almost every bar in the town closed down, the video says.

The full Transformations video featuring Pastor Muthee’s story has recently been removed from YouTube but the rest of the story is detailed in a 1999 article in the Christian Science Monitor, as well as on numerous evangelical websites.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, six months of fervent prayer and research identified the source of the witchcraft as a local woman called Mama Jane, who ran a “divination” centre called the Emmanuel Clinic.

Her alleged involvement in fortune-telling and the fact that she lived near the site of a number of fatal car accidents led Pastor Muthee to publicly declare her a witch responsible for the town’s ills, and order her to offer her up her soul for salvation or leave Kiambu.

Says the Monitor, “Muthee held a crusade that “brought about 200 people to Christ”.” They set up round-the-clock prayer intercession in the basement of a grocery store and eventually, says the pastor “the demonic influence – the ‘principality’ over Kiambu –was broken”, and Mama Jane fled the town.

According to accounts of the witchhunt circulated on evangelical websites such as Prayer Links Ministries, after Pastor Muthee declared Mama Jane a witch, the townspeople became suspicious and began to turn on her, demanding that she be stoned. Public outrage eventually led the police to raid her home, where they fired gunshots, killing a pet python which they believed to be a demon.

After Mama Jane was questioned by police – and released – she decided it was time to leave town, the account says.

Pastor Muthee has frequently referred to this witchhunt in his sermons as an example of the power of “spiritual warfare”. In October 2005, he delivered ten sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God, the audio of which was available on the church’s website until it was removed around the time Mrs Palin’s candidacy was announced. The blog Irregular Times has listings and screen grabs of the sermons.

It was during that these sermons that Mrs Palin, who was then preparing for her gubernatorial run, was anointed by Pastor Muthee. His intercession, she says, was “awesome”.

Her June 8 speech was to mark the graduation of students from the Wasilla Assembly of God’s Masters’ Commission, which, as Pastor Ed Kalins explains, believes Alaska will be the refuge for American evangelicals upon the coming “End of Days”. After her speech, Mrs Palin was presented with an honorary Masters’ Commission diploma.

A must see video of Sarah Palin on June 8, 2008 at the Wasilla Assembly of God Church.   Iraq war is a task that is from God.

It’s video of Palin speaking as the Governor this summer at the Wasilla Assembly of God, where she once attended:

“Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending (U.S. soldiers) out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.”

She also asks for prayers for the gas pipeline.

“I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that.”

Huffington Post says the video “underscores the notion that her world view is deeply impacted by religion. In turn, her remarks raise important questions: mainly, what is Palin’s faith and how exactly has it influenced her policies?”

OneLesbo:  are you making that up?
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  no
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  she went to one of those places for a year where they convert you…
OneLesbo:  I erased what I was going to type

Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  the minute she got there she found a woman
OneLesbo:  I’m sure – that’s what they do – put you in a home together – – oh that will cure a bunch of lesbos . . . what a deal – you don’t even have to go out on one date before you live together – yee haw
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  llaughing but not funny

OneLesbo:  run Forest run
OneLesbo:  so Lori still doesn’t “believe in” marriage between two people of the same gender? 
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  well we never really talk so how could I
OneLesbo:  Kinda like Our son, he’s not sure he believes in the Tooth Fairy
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  she might believe in a legal union
OneLesbo:  Michael at school told him that his dad is the Tooth Fairy, I said, “Mr. Johnson – geez I never pictured the Tooth Fairy looking like that!”
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  you know I have a bit of the same thing as her
OneLesbo:  well, that’s because you’ve never been in a long-term healthy relationship . . . in my opinion – well, except for a short time that I recall quite well 🙂
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  not sure I get the tooth fairy analogy
OneLesbo:  she doesn’t “believe in ” gay marriage
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  well we have been together for 4 years

Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  my IM’s don’t seem to be going to you
OneLesbo:  and at least one of mine went 2 times
OneLesbo:  strange
OneLesbo:  the conversation does seem to be more disjointed that even the usual IM conversation – usually we only have two subjects going at once – I now believe we have 4
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  she is an atheist?
OneLesbo:  yes she is an atheist
OneLesbo:  and quick to say it

Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  Lori and I both have a deep personal faith..we visit different churches..it ws supposed to make you gigle..I hope you told him yes
OneLesbo:  no – that’s not what I told him
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  what did you tell him
OneLesbo:  I said that to be in our family you’re not required to believe in God
OneLesbo:  Mom does not believe in God
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  that’s ok
OneLesbo:  he seemed okay with it
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  everyone needs to come to their own faith but they should be exposed to higher teachings
OneLesbo:  exactly
OneLesbo:  that’s what he and I discussed
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  not sure how many buddhist temples are in the Heartland of America
OneLesbo:  that we would help him find out about different beliefs and then we’d trust him when he’s a grown up to have his own beliefs
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  have one here right next to the house
OneLesbo:  you people in California
OneLesbo:  So, I need to go – we’re going on a cruise and fly out for Miami on Friday
OneLesbo:  Lovely Spouse and I haven’t argued for 2 days
OneLesbo:  don’t want to blow it just before the trip
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  well in my opinion not that it means one thing…I would take him to some houses of religion
Ex-GF/SurgeonHottiee:  good for you..I will pray for you again
OneLesbo:  good – I can use lots of prayers – pray that Lovely Spouse and I don’t kill each other
OneLesbo:  if you see on the news that a woman was lost at sea . . .
