Indian Reservation Declares “Jesus Christ Is Lord” With GIANT Billboard

If you are driving through Montana, you might come across a 33-foot billboard from the Crow Nation declaring, “Jesus Christ is Lord.”

No doubt it makes liberals want to break out diseased blankets, but the Crow Nation has no reason to be concerned.

In 2013, the Crow Nation unanimously passed a “Jesus is Lord” resolution drafted by Crow Senator Conrad J. Stevens.

“AS a sovereign nation, we’re not bound by separation of church and state,” said Stewart. “People are afraid to say, ‘Jesus’ in the political arena, but we did it today, as a people.”

Tribal members also say the sign is about peace.

“Within our nation is a struggle of peace,” said tribal secretary, AJ Not Afraid. “This is part of the foundation to initiate peace, initiate joy, initiate happiness.”

The sign also quotes Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.”

The Crow Nation has strong ties to the Pentecostal denomination.

In the 1920’s Pentecostal missionaries John and Georgia Forbes introduced the Crow Nation to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

The Crow Nation is also a strong supporter of Israel having passed a sister bill to the “Jesus is Lord” resolution declaring their support for the nation of Israel. 

Lord, bless the Crow Nation for their boldness in proclaiming Your Name and Lordship. Bless them in a very visible way. Glorify Yourself through these blessed people.
