Thanks to @brucewilson for this thread on the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & its connections to January 6 – helped me make sense of #Sarasota dynamics related to insurrection. Here's my local contribution: /1

Sarasotans involved with Jan. 6 activism appear to interact with NAR: /2
1. Mike Flynn, disgraced former general
2. Randy McLendon, Sarasota pastor
3. Caroline Wetherington, Women for Trump Florida leader
4. Katherine Harris, former Florida Sec. of State & Congresswoman
According to Wikipedia overview, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) supports Christian dominionism & wants the church to have political power over society. /3…
.@brucewilson notes that #SarasotaSeditionSquad member & disgraced former general #MikeFlynn had been on pre-Jan. 6 Zoom meetings with NAR leaders. /4
Sarasota pastor Randy McLendon ran unsuccessfully for Sarasota County Commission in 2012 as a Tea Party candidate & for Sarasota School Board in 2014, challenging Jane Goodwin. He & his wife are real estate agents in the area. /5
Randy McLendon’s website says he got an undergrad degree at University of Georgia & that he has Master’s in Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, TX. /6

This links to Randy McLendon’s email newsletter dated January 7, 2021, with information that goes back a few weeks before that date. He makes direct references to Dutch Sheets, the NAR leader, as an authority at various points, including recently. /8…
Randy McLendon used his email newsletter to rally Trump faithful on Jan. 6 in Englewood, Sarasota County for a Day of Intercession at Englewood Events Center. His email newsletter notes that on Jan. 6 Congress will be meeting for the electoral college vote certification. /9
McLendon says “will fervently pray into this.” He says “will open the Event Center about 8:00am. Congress will convene at 1:00pm. We will be following the rally and the news so that we can all pray into what is happening real time, binding and loosing as the Spirit leads.” /10
In an earlier posting, Randy McLendon refers to the series of election events in Georgia and at the US Capitol as related to “spiritual warfare for our nation.” /11
Randy McLendon says that on January 6, “We know and stand firm on what God's outcome is to be, but as Intercessors, we will stand in agreement with God's purposes and ‘pull the answers through’ and ‘strengthen the hands’ of those who are in the heat of the battle.” /12
On January 7, Randy McLendon wrote in his newsletter that he was “disappointed” with how things turned out the previous day and that he had “put a lot of hope” in Vice President Mike Pence. He blamed violence on Antifa & shared "proof" of election fraud via Sydney Powell. /13
Prior to January 6, Randy McLendon shared information about the Women for Trump Florida buses to Washington DC for the January 6 Big Lie Stop the Steal events. /14
Women for Trump Florida leader is Caroline Wetherington, a Council for National Policy Board of Governors member, who lives in the Sarasota area. She also interacts with NAR figures & themes. /15

At times Caroline Wetherington has claimed to have had prophetic visions of her own. /20
Women for Trump Florida pressured to overturn the election by urging supporters to join Big Lie Stop the Steal movement in Georgia & protesting outside Sen. Rick Scott’s home in Naples, Florida to urge him not to certify electoral college votes. /21
In addition to sending Women for Trump Florida buses to Washington DC for Jan. 6, Caroline Wetherington urged invocation of the Insurrection Act, which #MikeFlynn also advocated /22
On Jan. 5 rally in DC on the stage set up by Virginia Women for Trump, Caroline Wetherington gave a "Warrior's Prayer" and said she brought 36 vials of anointing oil from Israel to give to the first 36 people who came up to her for a blessing. /23

When Florida GOP Chair & #Sarasota State Senator #JoeGruters met on November 23, 2021 with Sydney Powell & Katherine Harris, I wondered about Harris’s involvement. /27…
.@brucewilson notes that former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, who lives in Sarasota area, has called NAR leaders her close spiritual advisors. As we know now, NAR leaders were closely implicated in Jan. 6. /28
Sarasota pastor Randy McLendon recommends Sydney Powell as a news source in his email newsletter after the Jan. 6 insurrection. Powell closely connected to Mike Flynn, too, of course. /29
