The problem with some Christians is that they see “revival” as a mystical or highly personal spiritual experience. Revival has this element to it, but it cannot stop there. It must be carried out into all the world around us. Jesus did not call us simply to be “in the world but not of it.” He called us to be transformers of the world system. The sad fact is that most adult Christians have already missed their call to spiritual awakening. The vast majority of church-going America is too culturally irrelevant to be used of God to transform our society. In the meantime, our nation’s young people are ready to receive their marching orders. Can we move beyond our own pietistic foolishness to see the need and act as Joshua and Caleb who led a generation of revived youth into the land of promise?
Most adults do not believe that America can be transformed into a Christian nation. We see the reality of evil and lose heart. We have become as “grasshoppers in the eyes of giants.” This was the attitude that Joshua and Caleb confronted in the wilderness. God told Joshua and Caleb that they and the younger generation under 20 years of age would be the ones to go into the Promised Land because they had wholeheartedly followed God. They had full faith and belief in God that He could defeat all of their enemies once they went into the Promised Land to conquer and possess it.
Do you have the faith of Joshua and Caleb? Are you able to stand with the youth of the current generation? Are you ready to be used to lead an army of young people? Do you want to know what the plan of God is? Do you feel an urging to do something that can be used of God even though most Christians around you are fearful to upset the world system? The only effective plan of action is from God’s Word itself. God will begin to unfold His plan if you will simply covenant yourself with God’s purposes revealed in scripture.
Covenant Prayer: A plan to reclaim the promises of God for our generation
Covenant prayer is a method of praying whole passages from the Bible that contain God’s promises to His people. As you begin to read the scriptures, look for prophecies concerning Israel that are applicable to what you see around you today. As you begin to pray these scriptures, they will come alive and you will be inspired to believe great things for your nation. Every book of the Bible contains covenantal promises, but there are two places that are paticularly rich.
If you will spend just a few minutes each day not just reading but praying and meditating on the following passages, see if God does not give you a vision for revival in our time.
1. Isaiah chapters 52 66
2. Deuteronomy chapters 28,29

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism
Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner
The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.
Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.
Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
