Charismatic Christian Spreads Spirit-filled Hope, Boldness and Truth to the U.S. House of Representatives by Anthony Hart for Charisma News
One of the most high-profile, outspoken, freedom-fighting and influential conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives is a Spirit-filled, Charismatic Christian.
Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) stepped into the pulpit as a guest speaker at Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colorado, this past weekend, celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade as answered prayer, and boldly declared, “We need the Holy Spirit.”
But she wasn’t there to talk about politics. “I really can’t stand politics,” says Congresswoman Boebert, who expressed her passion for truth, freedom and living in the resurrection power of Christ. “This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats. This is about good and evil. This is about right and wrong.”
The presence of a Charismatic Christian in the U.S. Congress demonstrates once again that God is putting His Spirit-led daughters (and sons) with the Esther anointing into positions of authority to save lives, push back spiritual darkness and turn the United States back to the Lord.
Jim Tarr, senior pastor of the Cornerstone Christian Center, says of Boebert, “She lives her faith in Jesus Christ out loud. She is not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Although she asked the Lord Jesus into her heart as a young girl, it was not until after Boebert got married and started to have children that something changed, and as a result, she was transformed into a powerhouse: she was baptized in the Holy Spirit and experienced power, spiritual discernment, deeper understanding and tremendous boldness. Her life forever changed, and she became a vessel for the power of God to come through.
Exuding leadership qualities aligned with biblical values, Congresswoman Boebert honored Pastor Tarr, publicly recognizing his courage to challenge government overreach as a citizen protected by the U.S. Constitution by continuing to assemble as the body of Christ amid lockdowns, and defying the government-directed mask mandates for children at his Christian school when it was not in the best interest of the children. “I commend your pastor [Jim Tarr] for taking a stand against [government] overreach,” she says.
“There are a lot of forces in the world that would like to keep people in bondage, keep them captive, restrict their liberty, but that is not what our nation was created for,” says Boebert. “I believe there are two nations that have been created to glorify God: Israel, whom we bless, and the United States of America. And this nation will glorify God.”
But she had another wake-up call for believers: “Politics, politicians, government—it doesn’t matter if you aren’t interested in those things, because they are interested in you,” she says.
“You’d better get interested if you want a say in what is happening in your life. We have seen that they will try to control every aspect of your life: what you can wear, what you have to cover, what time you can go to the grocery store, if your kids can go to school, if you can assemble in church, if you can petition your government.”
She continues, “The most important way you can get involved is through your words. Your words are powerful on so many levels. To show up and speak out. To be bold. To contradict those who would limit freedom and supersede the laws of the land and those who seek to do harm on our nation and our children. Show up and speak out.
“We have to start speaking life. You have resurrection power on the inside of you. And to speak that resurrection life into situations that seem dead, lifeless, hopeless; that is the basis of what we are called to do.”
Rep. Boebert shared her personal testimony at Cornerstone on Sunday, June 26, setting the record straight about who she is, what she stands for, and how her faith walk with the Holy Spirit led her to Congress. She smashed all the misconceptions and false accusations that politically driven deceivers have used to try to malign her and create a fake narrative.
The Colorado representative cited John 10:10 in her message at the local church: “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But Jesus came so you may have life, and life more abundantly, life to the overflow.”
Smiling, Boebert says, “We serve a good God.”
