Fourteen years ago, while taking a prayer walk in the east Texas countryside, God spoke to my heart that the world was about to change–radically. I thought it would happen immediately (prophetic people sometimes get the right idea but miss the timing).
Looking back, I believe the Obama years accelerated change in America–and now it is upon us.
We’re entering a new world–a new era in history. The critical thing we must develop is the character necessary to survive and thrive in it.
Character is destiny.
Much is happening in our world this week with the “Freedom Convoy” in Canada, (we need one in every nation), tensions on the Ukrainian border, and the censorship battle over the “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
The global civil war for freedom and souls is heating up–and we must be armed with knowledge and on be fire in prayer.
I also chatted on-line this week with a friend who helped widen my vision of the spiritual war and “voices” we hear. I was reminded about one of the bigger lies of the current worldview war–Critical Race Theory– and how to recognize Satan’s voice in it.
One thing that separates the Bible from the Koran is the prevalence of stories that inspire us about life and truth. While the Koran contains the “recitations” of one man over a few weeks, the Bible was written by forty authors over two thousand years. That’s an amazing difference.
Because of its depth and breadth, God’s Word contains many stories, both historical and allegorical, that are memorable and life-changing–such as the parables of Jesus. One of my favorites is the Prodigal Son. It instructs us on the dangers we face in the Western World–and how to find the way home.
But what will it take to awaken the Prodigal West?
