The entire church of Jesus Christ in our nation needs to convictionally come together in unified prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. There is no greater need in America. What will it take to wake us up, die to ourselves, and come together under the banner of the cross?

There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God’s people. Regardless of our denominational identity or independence, the time is now for us to come together before God in clear agreement, visible union, and extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God that will catapult us into reaching the world with the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe that unified prevailing prayer will lead to these results. Continue reading

Cross Pollinated With the World

The Church has made a critical error it that it has gleefully chosen to cross pollinate itself with the world.  And, in doing so it has not passed along its best traits to the world but it has been tainted by the traits of the world.  As a result, the Church no longer stands pure but displays characteristics and attitudes that are not natural to it.  At the same time this cross pollinated Church isn’t aware of the effects of its cross pollinated condition.  What it considers normal and natural is strange and destructive to those who experienced and remember a more pure Church before the cross pollination.  The “flower doesn’t look like it did before.  It responds to a new kind of environment.  Its beauty has been altered.  Continue reading
