What role does revival play in changing the culture of society?  Is this something we can hope to see today?  Don’t miss this special show today with Dr. Brown on the Line of Fire!

Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: God wants to visit and change us; He wants Jesus to be glorified in us and through us; He wants the world to know who He really is, and that means we must be revived.  If we’re hungry, thirsty, and desperate, He will meet us.  

Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: God wants to pour out His Spirit and revive us; He is more desirous of pouring out revival than we are of receiving it.  Go after Him, seek Him, and see what He will do!

Jesus, Christians and Politics online article by Frank Turek:

The United States Congress was in a rare joint session. All 435 representatives and 100 senators were in attendance, and the C-SPAN-TV cameras were rolling. The members were gathered together to hear a speech by a descendant of George Washington. But what they thought would be a polite speech of patriotic historical reflections quickly turned into a televised tongue-lashing. With a wagging finger and stern looks, Washington’s seventh-generation grandson declared, […]

Revolution: The Call to Holy War by Dr. Brown: This book is not a call for the violent overthrow of the government, nor is it a call to take up arms, nor is it a call to political activism in and of itself. It is a call to something far more extreme, a call to live out the gospel…

  1. Just came back from taking my youngest child driving. (He has his driver’s permit)

    Picture this…We were driving in the DARK. So, we had to use the headlights. As we were driving, all of a sudden we had to come to a halt. There was a deer crossing the road in front of us. Now when light flashes in a deer’s eyes, the deer freezes in its tracks. The deer just stopped and stared at us. Froze and then ran away.

    This is an analogy of how it is when the Lord’s light shines on people who live in sin(darkness). When the light shines on them they freeze up because they got caught red handed in their sin.

    I pray that the Lord’s light will BRIGHTLY shine on those who call upon the name of the Lord. I pray that all the unholy Christians who are living in a displeasing way will feel convicted and will change their wicked ways.

    I pray that they will thirst for the righteousness and Holiness of the Lord.

    Psalm 42:1
    As the deer pants for the water brooks,
    So pants my soul for You, O God.

    I cry out Lord for a change. I pray Lord that there will be a wake up and a TOTAL SURRENDER to you Oh Lord. Do it Lord, Do it!!

    We serve a GREAT GOD. TY Lord.

  2. Detroit prayer rally draws protests

    By Niraj Warikoo, Detroit Free Press

    Updated 12h 35m ago

    Speaking to thousands inside Ford Field, the controversial leader of a 24-hour prayer rally in Detroit called for Jesus to rule over Detroit, Dearborn and America. Otherwise, he warned, the U.S. will fall into ruin.

    By Jeff Karoub, AP

    Ford Field in Detroit was used for TheCall, a 24-hour Christian prayer gathering.

    ‘We need Jesus’ face to appear all across America,” Lou Engle thundered to a cheering crowd Friday night at TheCall, a movement that has drawn criticism.

    STORY: Arab-American leader mistakenly arrested

    STORY: ‘All-American Muslim’ reality show debuts

    Before the rally began, about 150 people protested against Engle, who is with a movement called the New Apostolic Reformation. Its leaders often rail against Muslims, gays, abortion, Catholics, African Americans and politicians who support abortion rights.

    They say Dearborn is under demonic control because of its Muslim population. And they say they believe African Americans have been cursed by Satan in recent decades because they vote Democratic.

    Organizers for Engle’s prayer event were expecting 50,000 to 70,000 people to show up, but the crowd size was markedly smaller than that, with much of the stadium unfilled. They also were heavily targeting African Americans in Detroit, but most of the crowd was white.

    “Their message is not one of inclusion; it’s of hate,” said Jennifer Teed of Detroit, who opposed Engle’s prayer event. “I don’t see how that’s religious.”

    She held up a sign that read, “All are people” and “Standing on the Side of Love.”

    The protest against Engle featured Catholic, Baptist and Methodist pastors from Detroit, as well as gay rights and women’s activists. Chanting “Stop the hate” and “Spread the love,” the protesters said the prayer rally inside the stadium promotes division and intolerance.

    “God did not call us to hate,” said the Rev. Charles Williams of Historic Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit.

    In the past year, Engle and his supporters have said their message is the key to reviving the world. Engle says black gospel music can defeat pop culture and then lead a generation to convert Muslims.

    “We believe that God wants to raise up a new worship sound out of Detroit,” said Engle, who is based in Kansas City, Mo., at the International House of Prayer.

    But several Detroit clergymen said they were being patronizing and racist toward minorities. Some Muslims were concerned about their mosques because Engle and others made references to targeting local Islamic centers.

    During his talks Friday night, Engle often referred to Dearborn, calling for Jesus to appear “all over Dearborn, all over Michigan.”

    Ohio couple’s godly gifts could land them in prison USATODAY.com in News

    The above was reproduced in USA Today from the Detroit Free Press. Trending here is that the Call to North America must be extended from all who call upon His Name. To affect the change needed we must heed the Call to declare a Council, and seek His mighty intervention for this present Lost Generation. Each and every believer, wherever we bow our knees before the father, in prayer closets and in fellowhships across this great Continent declare a Fast, and set a three month season for petition of consecration, repentance, rededication, and holy humble regard: to break the bondage over our Land we must join as ONE. Our placement is all over the Continent, and the present darkness requires more than seven key cities for a mutual petition, repentance, and request of the Father to visit again his people. Look up the Asbury Renewal of 1970 on You Tube, the half hour version report, and begin to see the need for all who call upon his name heeding the Yom Kipper Call in 2012, ignored in 2011: for the time is short. If His People, who call upon His Name, will humble themselves, repent, etc….

    We are still responding in camps, in preferences of pursuit of ways and means, and in predictable religious scripted manner. This will not suffice. It is time for the Lord to visit His People, this great Land, and for us to see and find Christ the Hope of Glory in One another to make a conjoint effort for the change He will bring.
