We MUST have a Revival in America

image

Ladies and Gentlemen, what I am about to share with you is one of the heart. What I’m about to say, is not something which would be nice to have happen. Rather, it is something which MUST happen and MUST happen soon in America. There is a deep sense of urgency in my writing.

What is a “Revival“? A revival presupposes that Christians are not what we should be for God. It further assumes that the Believer has drifted away from God.  It means a drawing back to God!

As I look at our need for revival, I can assure you that our Country, Communities, Churches, and our Homes desperately needs revival. 

Read what I have learned recently while searching the internet:

  • 41% surveyed said they did not believe in a hell.
  • 26% did not believe in Heaven.
  • 67% of those surveyed said they did not believe the Bible literally.
  • During a recent five-year segment of time, violent crime had increased 560%.
  • During this same time frame, there was a 20% INCREASE in teenage suicide.
  • Over 3 million teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17 are now considered “problem drinkers”.
  • Since 1973 there have been approximately 55 million abortions in America!!  This obviously does not included those illegally murdered.

Please do not deceive yourself into thinking a genuine revival is not needed.   We MUST have a revival in America.  As a nation, we have been lulled to sleep.  We have become immune to the sin and spiritual indifference which has permeated our Nation. 

 We have become like the proverbial frog which had been placed into a warm pan of water on the stove.    The frog will grow accustomed to the warm temperature of the water.  Now you can “slowly” turn the temperature up and the frog will literally boil himself to death.  This is exactly what has happened to America.    We are boiling in a sea of warm water and Satan has been slowly, yet surely and consistently, been turning up the heat laughing at our new brand of Christianity.   Many have grown fearful in the pulpit, prophesying “smooth words” that stands for very little.  Our pulpits, which have stood for little, has fallen into a deep sleep that MUST be awakened with the fire which revival will most certainly bring.

II Chronicles 7:14 says: ” If my people, which are called by my name shall HUMBLE themselves, and PRAY, and SEEK MY FACE, and TURN from their ways;  THEN WILL I HEAR from Heaven, and WILL FORGIVE their sin, and WILL HEAL their land”. 

Will you sincerely start doing the above four things NECESSARY to start revival fires in your heart?  And will you partner with at least one other person to  pray DAILY for the revival to start with each of you?  

I believe that in these last days, prior to the return of Jesus, we can experience a National Revival, but it will invariably come,  one Person and one Church at a time.   Will you join me in being that person committed to causing God to show up and begin the process of healing our land? Don’t wait until it becomes too late!!

Please let me know if you will make this spiritual committment.   I will commit to DAILY prayer for your City, your  Church, begging God send a Revival in your heart and Community.  Also, please pass this website for others to read about revival.

II Chronicles 7:14 is a “conditional promise“.   If you do our part seriously, fervently and continually, you may EXPECT God to send the revival.  Do you want it?  Do you see the need for it?   May we pray like the Psalmist of old in Psalm 85: “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee”?
