You are right-we are so deep in sin in this country that there is no question we need revival. I say this after having lived nearly 3/4 of a century and have seen the worst of it as a social worker. The 3rd world countries send their missionaries because they see what is so obvious. The question is - do we in America see the black hole that we are wallowing in? YES, SCOTT, WE NEED REVIVAL! OH LORD LET ALL OF US BELIEVERS FAST AND PRAY ON OUR FACES FOR RENEWAL IN OUR LAND!!!

God will ALWAYS send a revival if we (the body of believers) 1. Repent 2. Live a life holy and acceptable to Him. 3. Grow in Him 4. Pray 5. Witness 6. Have a social presence in our communities. Revival tarries in America because believers don't want to do what it takes to bring revival. Look at Latin America, Africa, and Asia to see what revival looks like. If the Soviets couldn't destroy revival, and the Chi-coms can't quinch it today, why does revival tarry here?

It's too late. Yes, the world needs a revival, but it will not happen until the return of Jesus.
It is prophesized that problems will wax worse and worse: gays being accepted into society, babies be aborted, solutions to problems are not working or backfiring.
But there is hope: Jesus' return. Pray to God that you and your family are worthy to be protected during this time. And continue to preach the gospel for the harvest is plenty, but he workers are few.

The reason America has lost touch with God is because she let Grace be exchanged for DisGrace. She has become unjust and Godless. The Word of God states don't let your liberty become a cloke for Malice and that is just what America is doing by embracing and accepting other gods and refusing to correct the ills of her soceities. America is closing her eyes and letting the unjust, the Godless, and the lawless lead her into dis-Grace.

Forget motivational teaching....get training.
We want someone who is actually doing the work of the ministry. Motivational students are not useful. Gorging on more information does not make you strong or able.
Soul winning training is making a comeback - get some.
Christians are removing flakes from their inner circles. Blatant unscriptural teachings always bring a backlash.
They are so blatant that they are waking up and bringing conviction to the believers.

America is a mission field because we have been cowed into complacency. The feel good pep talks are beginning to crash and burn.
Hurricane season is here. Hurricanes are a violent correction for a vacuum. When the air pressure drops in the ocean, the winds rush into balance out the vacuum.
The Church has an acute vacuum. Christians need to pray ahead of the curve.

In 1907, a Welsh Revival was in full bloom, waking up the world. American pastors decided that we should have a revival, too.
They planned it, promoted it, advertised it, with good old American ingenuity.
The result was a giant flop.
Planned revivals, human reasoning is not guaranteed.

Some in the Church are now moving away from feel good to FEEL GOD meetings.
Some are fed up, but not fed. They are starving for a church service that does not skirt the truth. They no longer want a diluted diet of pep talks, skits, and motivational speeches. They do not want a life coach.

If you look at us as a whole today you will see that we are too busy to even pray much less go out and tell the world. If we could slow down and drop to our knees and pray to the God who has delivered us, to our Savior who has paid our debt, we as a country might be more blessed than we could imagine. We need to slow down and make sure that we do fulfill the tasks Jesus has asked of us. Make sure that you teach your children, family & Friends. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and he loves me. John 3:16

Seems 'christians' are similar to our Jewish brethren in this regard!
God 'covenanted' with the nation Israel, & the Jewish people, through Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob [Israel].
God made a 'new' covenant with 'His' church, which America is the cradle of, & not America, which some erroneously believe [Matt.5:13-16].
Therein Lies The Problem(s)!
Declining support of & unwarranted verbal attacks on Israel;
Haughty Spirits/Self Righteousness [Prov.16:18]!

Does a damaged heart need repair, does cancer need to be removed? Americas' spiritual heart is broken and diseased. Does that mean there is no hope no cure? No! The Blood of Christ is the Balm of Gilead. But the people must reach out and realize that they need Jesus as savior, and Lord.
'If my people which are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray.' America get back to God, we need Him.

Here I am Lord, send me.
Z, we are all to be witnesses, some are chosen to be leaders and preachers. But we are to witness every chance we get, and often that means making that 'chance' happen.

America needs revival like a wound needs stitches.
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?"
---Pharisee on 8/19/05|
A revival is not much good if it doesn't start in the heart. I sure have been to some good ones where the spirit of God was so strong, you could feel if someone was under conviction. If you have never been to an old fashioned camp meeting, you are missing a blessing.

Yes it is a shame that things have changed so much but if we hadn't taken it to them first they wouldn't be able to bring it back now would they?
