Revival: Why It's Not Happening

"Go into all the world. Preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15 NiRV.)"

"Now after this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them in pairs ahead of Him to every city and place where He Himself was going to come. And He was saying to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest (Luke 10:1-2 NASB)."

"And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ (Acts 5:42 NASB)."

Sometimes the lack of biblical insight, by pastors, is astonishing. They constantly talk about the need for revival and bemoan society's descent into unrighteous living and the consequences currently being experienced and the judgement to come.

In California, where I live, we have gone beyond the ridiculous to the absurd. Boys can now enter the girls' locker room if they tell school administrators that they feel 'feminine.'

But while pastors talk about the need for revival, they usually ignore what the Bible says about the issue. Nobody is going out into their communities to preach the Gospel. Usually, all you hear about this is the need for 'friendship evangelism' and for Christians to invite others to church.

The cults are not so foolish. Jehovah's Witnesses and the Mormons go out in pairs and knock on doors, set up displays and otherwise effectively interact with the public. They evangelize just like the Bible says real Christians are supposed to do. Satan knows how to build up his church.

Going out to share the Gospel, in pairs, is not all that scary. I remember once that two girls—each about 12 years of age—once knocked on my door. As you might have guessed, they were Jehovah's Witnesses.

If Christians want revival, then they need to gather together each week at church and then go out into their communities and knock on doors, set up public displays etc. Maybe not every Christian, but every church should have such a ministry.

Otherwise, revival will not take place. And America's decline will continue.
