In my last Living Strong article, I wrote of judgment on America and explained that the Bible reveals that judgment comes in two ways. I also said that it is foolish thinking on America’s part to believe that we can escape the ramifications of sin and disobedience even those that defy natural law (Romans 3:23).
But, now the question is this… Is God finished with America?
I believe America will survive the judgment. I still believe we will experience a great reveal, a third Great Awakening, followed by a great reformation. IF this occurs, it will return America back to God and save us from total apostasy and destruction. A revival of this magnitude is our only hope! This revival will not stop the judgment but will occur in spite of the judgment. Quite possibly, it might happen in part because of the judgment. But I and other trusted leaders that I have conversed with about this matter, have very strong promises from God regarding the coming of this revival.
God will turn us back to Himself. God loves this generation, and He loves the millions of unsaved people in America and through the earth. He needs an America in right relationship with Him in order to reap the potential harvest. A great revival will restore to us this amazing destiny. Do NOT be deceived; the war for the soul of America is linked to this greatest harvest of souls in all of history.
If America ever needed another Great Awakening, it is now! Those of us who are followers of Jesus Christ must appeal to heaven for God’s Awakening and Revival. There is still a window of time, but it is CLOSING fast. Let’s cry out for mercy and grace, appealing to heaven for a third Great Awakening.
There are pockets of revival breaking out across America right now. Though small in number, it is a beginning.
On to Victory,
