Honestly, we need a baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire (Matthew 3:11)! Fear rules”"our “faith” is not producing the kind of results that it did in the Bible...believers blazing in love with Jesus! We are far from radical and we are adept at defending our sinful situation with a few out of context passages. The effervescent flames of NT Christianity must be rekindled in the dying American church. The Lord gives us a hope filled promise in times of crisis like today: 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 forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 ...
