The New Great Awakening

In January 2014, God spoke to my heart again that He desires to brinbald_eagle_head_and_american_flag1g a NEW Great Awakening to the United States. In upcoming weeks, I want to post blogs about the first two Great Awakenings in the 1700s with evangelists Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and later others that joined this move of God.

Today.  Now.  Do we want to complain about America or pray for her?  Here are some friends who are leading us into prayer:

1.  Evangelist Cruse and his wife Michelle at Repent America Now  (the small Harrisburg initiative going on, ending tomorrow)
2.  Anne Graham Lotz at the National Prayer Breakfast last month. She’s started a prayer initiative for our nation July 1 to 7, and said that this nation is headed for A NEW GREAT AWAKENING!!!! HALLELUJAH!!
4. Youth for Christ (YFC) National President, Dan Wolgemuth and YFC leaders from across the U.S. are joining Bob Vander Plaats (sorry, I have no idea who he is) and Mike Huckabee who is leading the “If 7:14” movement.
Harvest5. While the people are fasting and praying, God is sending his evangelists out into the harvest fields, on fire for winning souls!  Evangelists such as Reinhard Bonnke, Franklin and Will Graham, Greg Laurie, and Anne Graham Lotz are preaching the gospel with holy zeal all over America. Harvest is coming!

But today,this hour,woman prays looking out window B & W right now, it is incredibly dark in America. Sin is abounding.  What will we do?  We will do what we must do.  PRAY.

If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land (II Chronicles 7:14, NASV).

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

    America certainly needs a new Great Awakening, but are we ready for firebrands like Charles Finney to show up and pierce our hearts with their messages? I hope so because our business-like Christianity needs to be set afire at the stake and replaced with the simplicity of the gospel.

  2. Well said, Larry! If you have any writing on Charles Finney or another great revivalist especially from the Great Awakening, please let me know. I think we all want to know what’s coming! I know that Jonathan Edwards preached in monotone, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”, and oftentimes people said the floor appeared to open up beneath their pews and they saw and heard the damned crying out in hell. Finney showed up in a city and people fell down on the sidewalks under the power and presence of Almighty God.

  3. If anyone else has writing/comments/editorials on the Great Awakening, please let me know. I only ask that factual events shared are historically accurate.

    Do not wait for a Charles Finney or such – you are the ones I am sending – it is not the vessel but He Who is in the vessel that is The Power and will bring The Awakening . Let those with ears to hear – Listen.

    • Excellent word of wisdom here, Bill. Thank you for posting it. I was watching Phil Driscol (trumpet player) on You Tube and he said God is not waiting for one more song to be written, He will come when His people cry out to Him with all their hearts. Of course, Phil being Phil he said he also believes the Lord will return upon the praises of His people. Now there’s something to think about. I trust the Lord to awaken us, visit us, and reveal Himself to us–SOON!
