For those of you who were born in the 80s and beyond, let me give you a bit of history.
Back in the 60s there was a lot of unrest in the US. We had four assassinations – John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X; there were awful riots and looting in Watts [Los Angeles, CA]; Civil Rights protestors, the drug and hippy movement was alive and going strong; protests and burning of buildings in Berkley, CA; the Vietnam War was raging – unlike any other war in history; and of course, of all things, the “God is Dead Movement” – especially among university students. These are just a few things that characterized the unrest in our country during the 60s.
So what does all this mean? Well, in the late 60s and 70s, the Jesus Movement came on the scene. And oh what a time it was! That’s when I got saved and it changed my life forever! You see, the devil was trying with all his might to stop that movement but he couldn’t.
Now, fast forward to today – January 2021. Look at what we’ve been through in the past year: the apathy of the Church regarding political and social issues; the Covid-19 pandemic that affected the whole world; the lockdowns; the rise of suicide and domestic abuse because of the lockdowns; businesses closing and poverty raising its ugly head; censorship on social media; trying to silence the President of the USA, which is the height of arrogance gone to seed; rioting, looting, and violence – to name some of the turbulence that has taken place and is still trying to hold us back.
I ask you why did and is all this happening? Because the Great Revival – the Great Awakening – is about to break forth in a way we’ve never imagined! It’s going to be awesome and righteousness is coming back to the land. That’s why the enemy is trying so hard to keep us distracted with all that’s going on around us – to stop the move of God that’s about to break forth! We need to keep our eyes on God!
What an awesome time to be alive! We’re so blessed to be this generation and be part of God’s wonderful Plan, and has He got a Plan! Know this for sure, good always triumphs over evil.
So, dear brothers and sisters, prepare you hearts for this awesome Revival that’s about to break forth because the “sleeping giant” is waking up and we’re going to see the glory of the Lord cover the earth!
Habakkuk 2:14 (KJV) 14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 5:20 (KJV) 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
