Watch the Inspiring Message of Pastor Rafael Cruz
Message from Ron & Sue, Prayer Warriors and Peaceful Action Partners with My Faith Votes
We were personally blessed a couple weeks ago along with Christians from all over the Country in our weekly My Faith Votes Prayer group to hear a very powerful and timely message from Pastor Rafael Cruz, Senator Ted Cruz's father. We were inspired by his message and personal story, and by the conviction in his voice that truly conveyed the power of his own personal FAITH, his TRUST in our LORD and SAVIOR, the TRUTH as it is conveyed in the Holy Bible, and the LOVE he has for this Country!!
BIOGRAPHY OF PASTOR RAFAEL CRUZ
Rafael B. Cruz is a powerful example of the American Dream. Born in Cuba, Rafael lived and suffered under a cruel, oppressive dictator. He began fighting Batista’s regime as a teenager and was imprisoned and tortured simply because he wanted to be free.
Rafael arrived in Texas in 1957 on a student visa. He got a job as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour, and worked his way through the University of Texas, while learning English. He later built a small business in further pursuit of the American Dream.
In early 1980, Rafael Cruz joined the State Board of the Religious Roundtable, a Judeo-Christian organization that mobilized millions of people of faith during the Presidential Campaign of Ronald Reagan.
He is an ordained minister and the Director of Grace for America, sharing the Word of God in churches and Pastors Conferences throughout the United States.
His son, Ted Cruz, is a constitutional conservative U.S. Senator from Texas and candidate for United States President in 2016.
When Ted was a child growing up in Houston, Rafael would tell him, “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?”
That is why Rev. Cruz is passionate about returning America to the biblical and historical foundations that made this country exceptional.
Throughout our history, American pastors and churches have played a vital role in establishing and preserving religious and civil liberty.
Being “salt & light” requires knowledge of the culture we are attempting to preserve as we fulfill the Great Commission to “make disciples.”
Being Biblical Citizens requires a knowledge of Biblical principles and how to apply them to the world around us. You and your church can be the catalyst for restoring Biblical values in your neighborhood, State, and Nation.
