The nation was shocked as 68 billboards were suddenly unveiled in Atlanta, Georgia, that virtually shouted, “Blacks are an endangered species – toomanyaborted.com”. The nation raged, but the life-people rallied around the SIGN. The new true black prophets are now raising their voice. Something is going on in America.
A few months before this 13,000 people, with Blacks and Hispanics leading, gathered to pray and march at TheCall Houston as a prophetic witness against the largest abortion mill in the Western Hemisphere that is clearly targeting Black and Hispanic neighborhoods. They were marching to the sound of a new justice movement that was clearly echoed through that great pastor John Piper’s Twitter concerning the challenging of the spirit of abortion in America. It reads:
“Wave 1: Catholics say No to abortion.
Wave 2: Evangelicals flood the land with [Crisis Pregnancy Centers].
Wave 3: Blacks and Latinos bring it down.”
Now, a young woman, Dehavilland Brown, broken for her people and fueled by fasting and prayer, is calling thousands of Black American young men and women to rally to the SIGN in Atlanta to launch the 8:18 prayer movement. Isaiah 8:18 says, “I and the children you have given to me … are for SIGNs and wonders.”
The sign in scripture is always the child. Isaiah 7:14 says, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a SIGN: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Then again Luke 2:12 says, “And this will be the SIGN to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” Also, 2:34 says “… Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a SIGN which will be spoken against.” Revelation 12:1-4 says, “Now a great SIGN appeared in heaven a woman … being with child … and another SIGN … a great fiery dragon … and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.”
The history of civilization could be described in the scenario of the war between the offspring and the powers that would seek to destroy the SIGN. Genesis 3:14 says, “So the Lord God said to the serpent: … I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall bruise your head. And you shall bruise his heel.”
The abortion holocaust runs rampant through the black community, but God is raising up a standard. TheCall is standing behind Dehavilland Brown as she trumpets this summons to gather this August 16–18 to enlist in the 8:18 prayer resistance. On the 18th there will be a 10-hour solemn assembly. The gathering will be called the SIGN. Let us rally to the SIGN and fight for the child.
