Do we want another "Great Awaking?"


In a recent article entitled “The minister no church was big enough to contain” which you can check it out at: https://www.wnd.com/2018/09/the-minister-no-church-was-big-enough-to-contain/#sZfsuxD7ALzWaxpd.99

Author Bill Federer shares a great observation of one of the Giants of American history and especially of the American Church. When America was still in it infancy, several preachers came from England to preach and set the stage for revival.  The writer recounts the story of a preacher name George Whitefield a man that Benjamin Franklin would make a point of praising Whitefield in his autobiography.  Franklin shared about how he felt this preacher stood with a message from God on his heart and a concern for the loss souls of the world.

I’m convinced if we want another Great Awaking, it is going to take Men of God, standing with the message of repentance, conviction of the word of God not man’s culture or lies (Calling what God call’s SIN, call it the same from the pulpit and the street corner).  It is time for Men/Women of God to stand in the pulpit of America and declare like Whitefield the message of repentance.  Pastors, need come down from their pedestal and remember “The Bible Never Mean’s, what it never meant” Let me give you a few examples:

1.     The Bible never meant it was ok for preachers to tell folks there is No Hell and no judgement for Sin.

2.     The Bible never meant it was ok for preachers to tell folks that there is another way to heaven.

3.     The Bible never meant it was ok for preachers to tell people that the Virgin Birth, Death, Burial, Resurrection of Christ were simply stories (or fairy tales) that were made up, and definitely never meant for preachers to  deny the foundation of Scripture simply because they didn’t like how people would be offended.

Let’s call it like it is ladies and gentlemen of the Clergy! Revival will happen in a America when “Men and Women” that are called to preach quite preaching an agenda and start Preaching CHRIST … The death, burial, resurrection, heaven and hell, and He is coming again for the Saints (Believers) only.

Sadly, we have to either “Momma called Daddy sent preachers, or paid soothsayers (will say whatever you want me to say) in order to sell a book, get a speaking gig, or get you to donate to my ministry.

When God’s Preachers stand in the pulpit and marketplace of America and the world, and proclaim the truth of God the New Great Awakening will rock out world like the preachers George Whitefield, Charles Finney, or D. L. Moody.  It is God’s time to change the course of America like he has in the past.  However, the fear I have is how many preachers he will have to remove to accomplish it.

I think back over our generation and I see men like Billy Graham and others that have preached the Gospel is stadiums, and huge fields. They stood with the conviction to see people saved.  Where are the Whitefield’s, Wesley, Moody, and Grahams today?
