  • National Day of Prayer a Time for Americans to 'Shout it Aloud' [TODAY]

    CBN News ^ | May 5, 2016 | N/A
    Thursday May 5 marks the 65th annual National Day of Prayer and organizers are calling upon Americans across the country to humbly come before God's throne. The theme for 2016 is Wake Up America, which highlights the need for people, as a group and individually, to turn back to the God of our Fathers and revere His Holy Name. This year's National Day of Prayer Scripture is Isaiah 58:1a: "Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet." The co-chairmen of the Congressional Prayer Caucus released a video to recognize Thursday's observance and the importance of...

    Just before I sat down to write this article, the terrorist group known as ISIS claimed responsibility for another attack in the Middle East. In this latest incident, Muslim terrorists reportedly killed more than twelve people, injured more than twenty-five people, and took as many as fifty hostages. Sadly, we have grown accustomed to such horrendous news—so accustomed that we have almost come to expect such news every day. If we have not become desensitized to these sinful and shameful acts of terrorism, we feel a range of emotions, from anger to sadness, vengeance to helplessness, defensiveness to aggression. ISIS...

    LANCASTER, Pa. -- America just marked its 239th Independence Day, the birth of what many consider the greatest nation on earth. But after all these years of celebrating, Americans may soon be mourning its downfall. That's the conclusion of researcher George Barna and historian David Barton in their book U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots. ***** Faith is losing its foothold in the land. "The proportion of unchurched people has risen from 28 percent to 48 percent in six years," Barna shared. "The fastest growing faith group in America is atheists and agnostics."

    We are the modern-day Nineveh which was the most corrupt and immoral city of its day. The prophet Jonah, against his will, went to Nineveh under orders from God and warned the citizens that they had forty days until their utter destruction at the hands of God. To their credit, they repented and wearing sackcloth and ashes, cried out to God begging His forgiveness. In His mercy, He spared them.

Though the forces of evil may try, there are many Christ followers who intend to see spiritual revival break out in this, one of the two greatest nations on earth. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will...

In this verse is threatened the vengeance of God on the wicked unbelieving Israelites, who were God’s visible people, and who lived under the means of grace; but who, notwithstanding all God’s wonderful works towards them, remained (as Deut. 32:28) void of counsel, having no understanding in them. Under all the cultivations of heaven, they brought forth bitter and poisonous fruit; as in the two verses next...

    A couple of years ago, a former archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, warned Christians that the faith is in danger. Here is the article: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Christianity-Anglican-Extinct-Carey/2013/11/25/id/538425/ According to the article, only 800,000 people are church-goers in Britain. Britain had a total population of 64 million in 2013. This means that only 1.25 percent of the British population are church-going Christians. The future of America seems to be going in Britain's direction. I wanted to add an update to Lord Carey's observations. A lot of people think the Third World is the future of Christianity. But Brazil, the largest Latin American country,...

Large crowds of poor people have been attending these churches looking for answers for their physical, material and spiritual needs. The Brazilian Catholic Church, plagued by the Liberation Theology, has been worried about this growth. And even mainline Brazilian Protestant churches, similarly plagued by Protestant versions of the Liberation Theology, have been worried. International onlookers see such growth as a phenomenon or even evidence of “revival.” Yet, Brazilian Calvinist critics question that if it were genuine, Brazil would not have now...

    When Jonathan Edwards described the awakening in his church, he had to use words like “surprising,” “extraordinary” and “astonishing.” The Bible says of the early church that “awe came upon every soul” (Acts 2:43). We can’t program that into our worship: 10:45 am – Awe comes upon every soul. Since revival is of God, we should pray for it. But how? The Bible teaches us how to pray; Isaiah 63:15-64:12 is a biblical prayer for revival.

    This is the sixth and final post in my blog series, titled: The Price of Liberty. If you’re just now starting the series, you can begin with the first post here. During the middle of the nineteenth century, spiritual conditions in the United States deteriorated considerably. Conditions were quite different then because the nation had moved away from its early days of godliness. Moreover, people became obsessed with making money, and as they prospered they turned their backs on God. Then a man named Jeremiah Lanphier began a prayer meeting in the upper room of the Dutch Reformed Church in...

    Does God care about a pagan city? Does He care about Mexico City, Detroit or Chicago? More to the point: do we care about our city? Or could it be that our personal comforts outweigh our commitment to the plight of the urban centers of the world? Nineveh was the capital of Assyria, located about 200 miles northwest of Baghdad or 250 miles from ancient Babylon. Nineveh was on the eastern bank of the Tigris/Euphrates River, and as such, shared a common heritage with the great city of Babylon. In fact, Nimrod, according to Genesis 10:9-11, was the founder of...

    ...John Paul II called for a "New Evangelization." Pope Benedict XVI has made this a central pillar of his pontificate. He erected a Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization tasked with evangelizing countries where the Gospel was announced centuries ago, but where its presence in peoples' daily life seems to be all but lost. Pope Benedict established a new dicastery (Vatican Office) and underscored the seriousness with which he views this mission of the New Evangelization. Cultures formerly infused with a Christian culture are now regularly called post-Christian and understandably so. In April 2009 John Meachem, then of Newsweek magazine,...

In the past, seven to ten percent of the inmates at a facility would attend the meetings, said Annie Goebel, co-founder of Daughters of Destiny. Now, the ministry is seeing anywhere from 30 to 90 percent of the inmates attending the gathering. This past year alone, more than 20,000 inmates attended the ministry’s evangelism events with nearly 7,500 making decisions for Christ. “We call it a revival in the women’s prisons and among women in...

    After Fox News host Glenn Beck led his spirit-filled "Restoring Honor" revival on the Mall last month, he seemed to be reinventing himself as an American Moses delivering America back to the Promised Land -- or perhaps the next Billy Graham, as Southern Baptist leader Richard Land suggested. Yet a new poll shows that Beck isn't quite yet a figure of biblical proportions, with 17 percent of Americans believing Beck "is the right person to lead a religious movement" and 50 percent saying he's not. Even among Republicans and white evangelicals, a highly motivated cohort of conservative voters who view...

    Talk show host Glenn Beck regularly provides conservatives with a wealth of useful information. He can be witty, self-deprecating, and endearing on the radio while dead serious and engaging on TV. Sometimes you laugh until you cry. Sometimes you just cry. There is a great deal to commend in his efforts. Dr. Beck (who received an honorary doctorate from the late Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University), diagnoses the Progressive Movement as the disease killing our land, then courageously goes after people in high places, especially the latest menu of Marxist fruits, flakes, and nuts the Barack Obama administration serves us up...

    Psa 145:15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. God visits Yale In the 1700s, the First Great Awakening came to an end because of the influx of rationalistic thinking from Europe in the form of literature. Revival waned because books containing the philosophy of the Enlightenment were disbursed on the college campuses by the ton. Books containing rationalistic principles which mocked the Bible, such as Thomas Paine’s Age of Reason, were given freely to the students. Dr. Timothy Dwight, then the President of Yale College, described the literature as “the...

    Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Psalm 85:6 --------------------------------------------- On this 234th anniversary of this nation's independence, it is clear now more than ever that America has no hope of being sustained unless the people of God join together in united prayer before God the Father and Christ Jesus His Son and make intercession for this nation. There have been many times in our nation's past where things were very bleak. If the Lord had not been on our side, we would have perished. And just a few obedient souls reaching out to...

    Today the Royal Society will publish the first report based on its Atlas of Islamic-World Science and Innovation Project. The reason we have chosen to undertake this project is the potentially staggering impact that countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others could have on science in the coming decades. Saudi Arabia has established the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, which has risen from the desert in just a few years based on a £20 billion endowment. Qatar has built Education City, a 2500 acre campus outside Doha where seven of the top US universities now have bases....

    This was from Glenn Beck's American Revival in Orlando on Saturday March 27, 2010. This was probably the most amazing experience of the day (and it was all amazing!). An elderly woman needed a doctor in one of the upper levels - at first we all thought the hollering were protesters, but it becomes obvious that it is something else when people start screaming "doctor." While the paramedics rush up there all 8,000 of us are just sort of sitting in silence, when Glenn starts to hum Amazing Grace ... and the crowd starts humming and softly singing with him....

    VII. Religion and the New Republic The religion of the new American republic was evangelicalism, which, between 1800 and the Civil War, was the "grand absorbing theme" of American religious life. During some years in the first half of the nineteenth century, revivals (through which evangelicalism found expression) occurred so often that religious publications that specialized in tracking them lost count. In 1827, for example, one journal exulted that "revivals, we rejoice to say, are becoming too numerous in our country to admit of being generally mentioned in our Record." During the years between the inaugurations of Thomas Jefferson and...
