With the unprecedented escalation and celebration of homosexuality; steamrolling of same-sex marriage; apostasy and compromise in Christian churches, ministries and organizations; the unbelievable governmental assault on our religious freedoms and hostility towards biblical values; the epidemic of out-of-wedlock births, sexual abuse, pornography, divorce, promiscuity, cohabitation and human trafficking; plus, continued execution of unborn babies in the womb every 26 seconds, isn’t it obvious that we are at a tipping point as a nation and in a state of moral crisis?
Can we sink deeper into the abyss of depravity? Of course, but how far must we plummet before we collectively rouse ourselves out of the slumber and any cowardice? Are you like multitudes sensing that it is time to not only pray but to engage in Spirit-led action?
Remember in Revelation when it lists the eight groups cast into the lake of fire at the end of the age, first in line are the “cowards” ahead of the “unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars” (Rev.21:8).
I’ve been a board member of Intercessors for America national prayer ministry for almost four decades. While I encourage prayer and fasting, there is also an urgent need for courageous Christians and engaged churches to emerge who know “faith without deeds is dead” (Jam 2:26). We are presently involved in a civil war for the soul of our nation and it’s time for volunteers in the army of the Lord of hosts!
Words God spoke to Moses apply here. “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Quit praying and get the people moving!” (Ex. 14:15 TLB)
It is not my purpose here to outline a 10 point action plan for every Christian to follow (my friend Ralph Reed does an excellent job of this in his just released new book, “Awakening”) but rather to challenge all of us to seek God individually regarding what part we can play to foster spiritual awakening in the United States of America before it’s too late. Time really is of the essence and I don’t say this to be dramatic but rather prophetic.
One life can truly make a difference. As in the magnificent film, “God’s Not Dead”, one student in a class of 60 stood up courageously and served as a change agent on his campus and beyond.
The time for silence, neutrality and retreat must stop. The misguided idea that we must not offend anybody but bend over backwards to make sure everyone likes us has to go.
