In the Fargo Forum, veteran political reporter Don Davis reports Rural insurance man tapped as MN GOP Senate leader.
Take his appearance nearly a year ago at the Now is the Time! Now is the Season! Jubilee! Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets, Duluth MN in Duluth, at which the state senator joined other Christian dominionists to pray for the Zenith City. (For a quick look into the mind of Dutch Sheets, check out his Baal Teachings, which equate LGBTQ people with demons; someone should find out in Gazelka--who in 2010 grabbed the endorsement from the MNGOP's only openly gay legislator--if he agrees).
We've snagged a screenshot of an Eventful listing for the jubilee:
This wasn't a sudden conversion for Gazelka, who has maintained ties with the New Apostolic Reformation movement for year. His book on extending Christianity into the second cultural "mountain"--business--of seven mountains was issued in 2003 by Creation House Press (which appears to be a co-publishing/self-publishing service, if this Christian author's experience is correct).
Creation House is part of Charisma Media. The book was blurbed by C. Peter Wagner, one of the architect of the NAR. Wagner believes that "Satan and his demons are literally in the world" according to Wikipedia. Wagner discusses the NAR in an article in Charisma here.
In addition to NAR leaders Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce, Generals International State Prayer General and Call to the Wall/Minnesota Apostolic Prayer Network organizer Karen Krueger was on the Jubilee agenda. She's published Sheets and Pierce's "prophecy" uttered at the jubilee on the site. The passage begins:
And the Lord would say, I have come to pierce your ear again in this state. I have come to realign you with Me, saith the Lord. I say that by the piercing of your ear, I am designating that you belong to me (and that is why they do it Biblically-Pierce the ear.) I say as a sign, I have realigned you and you are no longer slaves to the ruling forces that were controlling the people of this region, but now you will hear and become one that serves me and a state that serves me and impacts this nation.
I say to you I have brought you to Duluth because I am giving you an authority in this city to stop the move of the blowing of the witchcraft that has blown across this state. I say beginning this weekend I am capturing the structure of witchcraft that has operated through my people and stopped my movement and I say because you have gathered; witchcraft will have no longer rule in this state.
I say to you the witching winds of the past now will not have the authority to control the movement of my people.
And I say to you the treasures that have fallen and been hidden over the last 40 years, I say to you tonight I start causing those treasures and those resources that have been held up to rise up, and I say out of Minnesota there will come effecting change that will affect the resource of this entire nation. I say to you this is the beginning of my glory coming in and beginning to be the band around the waist of this state. I say the belt of truth now that has longed to rise up and be seen in Minnesota will now rise up and be seen.
And here Bluestem thought what made Duluth special was the craft breweries. Now we learn it's witchcraft. Readers can savor more of this at the site.
We've written about Minnesota's NAR prayer warriors in the past in posts such as Prophetic intercessor Cindy Jacobs promised Dan Severson that Jesus would make him Teflon (Jacobs is the nice lady from Generals international who thought the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell caused birds to drop dead from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas).
These prayer warriors are the spiritual running buddies of Minnesota's new state senate Majority Leader. We'll look further into these connections as the session approaches. Let us pray that no common loons fall from the sky.

Senator Gazelka tells Little Falls forum that Minnesota's new buffer law didn't happen
We suppose we should give him some credit for not blaming the 2015 buffer bill on Minneapolis DFL state Jean Wagenius. It's a ray of something, but we got wonder how much this guy will get it done in St. Paul.
