In the mid-90’s I received this Spirit-inspired utterance. I believe the fulness of this word is for right now.
“America will come upon hard times. Many hearts will open, and the gospel will penetrate into the cities of America. Revival will sweep the land even as it is being judged. Young men who will be trained and ready will be as special forces, and they will run with fire in their feet and in their hearts. They will be free of care and family ties and at a moment’s notice will respond to the Spirit’s call and go. When the enemy unleashes his onslaught on the cities of America these shall be ready. They will be sent to the battle equipped as troops for the trenches where victories are won. Unconventional wisdom and special skill shall be given them for conquest, and they will go armed to suffer for their Lord and Commander in Chief.
“These special forces shall be men that have no desire for their own glory, but only seek the glory of Him who sends them. They are men with no hidden agendas or secret plans, but only to advance the kingdom.”
Praise the Lord!
Think about how different America has become in just the last 10-15 years ago. Go back even further to the mid-90s when I received this word. As a nation we have reached the boiling point. Something has to give.
The country is divided. The Church in many ways is divided.
For years now, the Democrats have been moving farther left — more pro-abortion, more pro-LGBT activism, more anti-Israel, more anti-Bible, more radically socialist. Even professing Christians have been caught up in this leftist ideology. On what basis can God-fearing Christians be a modern democrat or even vote for them? In my humble opinion, they are the biggest problem in our nation. That is the reason I say that the Church is divided. Just before he went to be with the Lord the late prophecy teacher Hilton Sutton administered altar calls for Christians who voted for Obama. Yes, no joke, he called them to repentance.
CHURCH FULL OF FALSE CONVERTS
“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Lk. 6:46)
I believe many of our churches today are full of false converts or they are just miserably backslid.
You want to know what the greatest opposition to the truth is in these last days? Forget about these university professors, atheistic leftists, false religionists, and skeptics and so forth. The greatest liability in the Church of today are those inside the church. The passive, lukewarm “Christian” who remains in his neutral closet and never engages others in evangelism and in being a living witness for Christ is the leaven that leavens the entire lump.
In a recent George Barna survey 25 percent of those who lay claim to a born-again experience do not even adhere to the basic and elementary tenets of the Christian faith. It is that particular group that are like a cancer in the church. A significant change in them would mean a significant change in our nation, too.
The curse of our nation is the presentation of the “free gift” dimension of the gospel without the Lordship factor and the surrender and submission component. It’s the gospel on our own terms. This contemporary gospel is a huge factor in the moral erosion of our culture, especially as it relates to social issues. Among the number of non-evangelical professing “born-again” Christians, only slightly more than 50 percent identify as social conservatives, and even that number is suspect, based on recent elections. Additionally, on the abortion issue, 37 percent are not pro-life, and 27 percent advocate gay rights. Remember, these are the people who claim to be born again and who say they are good people and never hurt anyone. The absence of a true moral compass in their lives is glaring. The salt has lost its savor. The light they claim to have is great darkness.
Although there is a godly, committed remnant that is alive and well in our nation, imagine if just this 25 percent group were presented and practiced a gospel that included a solid commitment to Christ and biblical values, how much more faith would be interjected into the American culture? Visualize how different of a nation America would be.
