National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day occurs annually on Dec. 7, commemorating the attack on Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. At 7:55am on Dec. 7, 1941 approximately 200 Japanese aircraft attacked the US military base, leaving nearly 3,000 dead. With this attack, the US entered into World War II, declared by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress on Dec. 8, 1941.
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is also referred to as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day or Pearl Harbor Day. The flag of the United States is flown at half-staff until sunset in honor of the fallen patriots.
A Spiritual Parallel
Dennis Cramer, internationally recognized for his prophetic ministry, drew a spiritual parallel to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Here is an excerpt from a message to the Body of Christ. Click here to read the entire message:
I believe this is the word of the Lord for you: It's Dec. 7, 1941, all over again! You have just been through your spiritual Pearl Harbor experience. You have just been blind-sided. You have just been hit below the belt. You have just been thrust into a spiritual war, a combat zone, a hostile environment, totally against your will.
A strong biblical response is necessary. . . You must fight back. You must defend yourself. You have been the target of a demonic "sneak attack" and you have suffered, nearly becoming another spiritual fatality. You've been spiritually bullied around too long. You've been spiritually victimized too long. You've been spiritually defeated far too long. It's simply time to win. It's time to emerge as the victor! And to the victor go the spoils!
I'm convinced that praise is the number one weapon of YOUR warfare. Through praise it's time for you to execute vengeance, punish your enemy, bind evil forces, and carry out the judgment against all of hell. Also, as you praise God, I want you to do something more. It's time for YOU to claim the four-fold guarantee of Christ's atonement. Plus, realize that his atonement was and is a finished work. Jesus didn't say, "It is over." He said, "It is finished." The work of the cross was and is a finished, completed, perfect work for YOU. There's nothing more you can do except to receive within YOU what Christ did for YOU. This includes total forgiveness, healing, deliverance, and prosperity for you, as well as total defeat for your archenemy, the devil.
Receive now His forgiveness for all your sin, past and present. Receive now His total healing for your life: spirit, soul, and body. Receive now any deliverance you may require to be free. And, expect to walk in total prosperity now, both in natural things as well as in spiritual things. Accept the total package Christ has for YOU now. Remember, YOU are the one who must do the receiving. This is your right and your responsibility.
Each year the nation recalls what took place on Pearl Harbor on that fateful date, December 7, 1941.
