I agree. We can only hope a revival is ahead. We need a return to the basic foundations our country was built upon. The Biblical principles were never meant to be strewn aside in order to build a government of the people.
Why the inverted commas around childish, Norine. If you think it's childish, you should say, "Now, that's childish." Do you want some help with English? You certainly go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on with Gospel readings.
Why do "I" stay on your mind? What possesses you? Is there something I have you want or Satan doesn't want? Why am I important enough for you to continue to waste your time on "blah, blah, blah, blah?"
Maybe I'm the Antichrist (in some Christian teachings) a personal opponent of Christ expected to appear before the end of the world. "the battle between Christ and the Antichrist" a person or force seen as opposing Christ or the Christian Church.
And you wish to be? I wouldn't want to be associated with anything "evil" in any belief! I have a "witch" commenting to me this morning too; "happy" in her beliefs and you display a demonic spirit as well and you "brag" on it?
Lol, with all due respect, look at every comment section on this thread. Isn't it clear who is picking fights? Why should it be surprising that the incessant ravings of one person get annoying enough that someone lashes back?
Witch: I give WORD to those who DEFY SCRIPTURE whether one "believes" or not! Unbelievers (Satan) don't like TRUTH & become possessed w/demonic spirits lashing back! Job 1:6 "Satan is ALWAYS "in the midst!"
Oh, come on Lolita. Norine epitomises everything I hate: intolerance, a closed, vindictiveness, name calling. I was brought up Christian & believe it is founded on kindness, love & charity. If Jesus Christ were to look into Norine’s soul he'd
I'm glad HE "looks" & not u! Twi, I've never done anything to u but told TRUTH! Allah is a LIE to say he is GOD if he never "begat" (Qur'an 112:3)! I wouldn't want a God who never "begat" anything! TRUTH brought out a demonic spirit in u!
FATHER, in Your Name – “JESUS,” I come to you thanking and giving You ALL the GLORY for everything You’ve done, You are doing and You will do! I thank you for sending Your GLORY “AS OF” Your only begotten Son – “JESUS” for without HIM, we would be “nothing!”
I thank you for Your anointing and as is ALWAYS my prayer “When I open my mouth, let the world see “JESUS” for “there is none other Name given among men, whereby we MUST be saved” (Acts 4:12)! LORD, “guide me,” so when I open my mouth, it is YOU and YOU ONLY who is “glorified!”
“Give me now wisdom and knowledge that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people that is so great” (II Chronicles 1:10)? You Promised, You would “never leave me nor forsake me” (Deuteronomy 31:6) and “I BELIEVE!” I come to You asking “That the eyes of their understanding be enlightened; that they may KNOW what is the HOPE of Your calling, and what the RICHES of the GLORY of Your inheritance is for saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of Your Power toward us who BELIEVE, according to the working of YOUR Mighty Power” [paraphrasing; Ephesians 1:18-19]!
Bless them LORD! Give them “new eyes” and “new ears” so they can “understand” the “Greatness of Your Mighty Power!” Remove “stony hearts” the world has created in them! Give them the “understanding” of what YOU SAID in John 4:23-24 “TRUE WORSHIPERS “MUST” worship You in SPIRIT and in TRUTH” for that’s the ONLY “language” You Speak!
LORD, I KNOW “You desire no one is lost” (II Peter 3:9) so I ask these things in YOUR NAME – “JESUS!” Amen
Matthew 24:14 "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come!"
What an hysterical comment. Did you realise that by putting speech marks, quotation marks, (apostrophes) around JESUS as in “JESUS” you are indicating that it is a quotation and therefore an opinion or reported speech?
We need a revival--we need one in the worst way. I keep hearing that there will be one, and I believe there may be, but not enough to divert what is coming--which is God's wrath upon America. I think the verdict has already been set in heaven, but I pray that enough people will come to Christ as possible to save their souls, even if they cannot save their country. I think that it is by most people's prayers that America's day has not come yet. It may have been postponed, but it's coming.
No, I'm not hateful. I am just a little annoyed because she deliberately misread my words, or did so to score a point. I do believe in God, but for some reason, I don't think God only believes in Christians. I have a feeling He is there for everyone.
How do u define "Believing in GOD?" That there's a Big Pie in the Sky who created you? Jn 1:1 "THE WORD "IS" GOD" but u don't believe WORD? How can u say u believe in GOD="Not a Christian?" How? I give WORD not "score pts!" This is not a "game!"
I don’t know about America, but the rest of the world is surviving quite well without the muddled reasoning and hysteria I am already reading in comments on your initial question. I hate to have to be so rude as to inform one of two of them, and to one in particular, that very emotional little sermon relied on an improvable set of theories. And these she has tried to substantiate by quotes from religious tracts. God, one must realise, or the existence of God, can not be proven. Believe in Him, if one must, and I also believe that He exists, but only as a matter of faith. My goodness, next minute these people will be expecting us all to believe that everything in the Bible is true, In fact, it must be taken word for word and that the world was created in seven days, or something ridiculous like that – or that this scheme of things has only existed for about 5,700 to 10,000 years. But that would be silly, wouldn’t it? I mean, who would subscribe to that theory? Even the most rabid Christians couldn’t go that far. And frankly, why is it that when someone shouts (as in using capitals to make a point) the following badly punctuated sentence: “FATHER, in Your Name – “JESUS,” I come to you thanking and giving You ALL the GLORY for everything You’ve done, You are doing and You will do! I thank you for sending Your GLORY “AS OF” Your only begotten Son – “JESUS” for without HIM, we would be ‘nothing!’” someone else doesn’t reach for the telephone to call the police? It’s no more, or less, stating a held belief than if I were to call out: “Allah hu Akbar!” And “I keep hearing that there will be one, and I believe there may be, but not enough to divert what is coming--which is God's wrath upon America.” God’s wrath on America? What’s all that about? Eek! The end is nigh.” “Prepare to meet your doom.” And “Blah-di-Blah-di-Blah!”
Just as I expected; the typical "Christian" response. What would Jesus think of your reply? In another age you would have burned me at the stake or something as characteristically unkind. Open your mind, woman. Jesus preached of love & forgivene
Typical non-Christian response: Jesus preached love and forgiveness. Yes, he did, but he would not approve of the way many people live today. If you pay attention to the bible, you'd know that He said multiple times that we need to repent.
Norine, I know you don't read too well, so what I have written may be beyond you. However, I said that I do believe in God, but it is not provable. It's a matter of faith, not fact. Spouting details from man-written text (or texts) is not scientific.
The rest of the world is doing well? Have you not heard of these countries? Congo (Democratic Republic of the) Rwanda Burkina Faso Lesotho Sierra Leone Mauritania Central African Republic Haiti Guinea Nepal Syria To name a few.
Savvydating, your point would be? A list of countries but no explanation as to why you chose them. Perhaps I should admit that I don't think that a Christian revival in America would help them. Perhaps their own governments?Less corruption? Hmm?
Twilight, I think she named them to imply that they are not doing well. Just a guess. BTW, you can't say you believe in God but then say it's not provable that He exists. If you believe, you believe He exists.
Lolita, I love the way that you are trying to be the peacemaker here - For Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall inherit the Earth. But you are wrong. The existence of God cannot be proven, He is not tangible. If He were, He wouldn't be God.
HE sure isn't "tangible" to those who didn't do as commanded ("WAIT" Acts 1:4) so they would "see" (carnally) HIS "tangible" benefits; of which HE has MANY! So bcuz you didn't obey, you blame HIM? Blah, blah, blah! "Science" v "Faith?" R u Misfit?
What is a Christian revival? Will there be a greater awareness of the need for Peace? Yes, Yes...it has already started. Some universities are incorporating Mindfulness, and the kids are doing better at school. Jefferson, Emerson and many more lefts ideas on the American consciousness, which sooner or later will bear fruit.
What is a revival if not the universal appeal to be happy, loving, peaceful....to reach out to Something Higher... a longing to be free; to soar like an eagle. Yes, yes, my friend. We do need this very badly, and the kernels have already started taking roots. We are all interconnected and so American cannot be seen as an isolated entity. Much Love.
Careful, manatita44. Norine is likely to call you Satan or Beelzebub or whatever. She's a rabid "stone 'em & burn 'em" Fundamentalist Christian who hates people having opinions other than hers. Fortunately, she doesn't read too well so you may es
I think there are always going to sporadic bursts and lulls in interests and faith movements, but I don't think there's going to be a Christian revival in terms of the country going back to when almost everyone was Christian and it was taken for granted that it was the way of things.
I don't think we need one at all; in fact I think we badly need to keep all religions on equal par and to allow for more diversity as society changes, and as people's needs in religion and spirituality change.
Don't forget the parable of "The Sower" (Matt 13:3-9) so everyone WON'T "hear" but Matt 24:14 "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto ALL nations; & then shall the end come!" "On equal par" a LIE (Exd34:1
To each his own but Provide a book w/as many "accurate" fulfilled prophecies written BEFORE the Bible, then you MIGHT have something to talk about; otherwise ONLY "your opinion!" I Cor 10:21 "You can't eat from the Lord's table & Satan's!" SATAN
I've studied the Bible pretty intently during & after college. I didn't see all these accurate fulfilled prophecies (a lot of people jumping to conclusions, though). I don't believe in Satan either. Again, not relevant to my point here.
Well "conclude" this! Right is rt; wrong is wrong! Heaven is for real & Hell is too! Chose (Joshua 24:15)! You've chosen - SATAN - therefore "your point" is irrelevant as far as a "Christian" Revival is concerned!
Conclusion: you're entitled to your beliefs & opinions. I don't share them at all. I didn't say any God was irrelevant. I said your opinion on your scripture (which I don't believe for 1 second comes from a God) is irrelevant to my answer's poin
Yes! We all are entitled to "our opinion" & as far as GOD is concerned, "sorcery" is OUT! If not an advocate for GOD then who? U all think I'm hateful, I just call them the way HIS WORD sees them! SATAN!
That's not the God I believe in, hon. Or his little red sidekick. I don't believe any of these ideas you espouse came from anywhere by people's heads. The By the way, calling me 'Witch' doesn't offend me in the least, nothing wrong with it ;o)
I know! Your god is "his little red sidekick!" Well, as you said "We're all entitled to our opinion," but as far as the question goes, why should a witch's (Satan's) opinion matter? The question regarded a "Christian" Revival"
You should follow what you believe is good, right & true. That's admirable of you. I do the same. The question was in Religion & Philosophy; It's not in the Christian section. I gave my answer from my religious perspective.
Maybe you don't "comprehend?" "QUESTION" pertains to CHRISTIAN (Christ Followers) not "RELIGION" (Satan Followers) there is a BIG DIFFERENCE! CHRIST doesn't like witches RECRUITING ("...people's needs in religion.." under HIS (CHRISTian) Name!
The question asks about whether there will be a Christian revival in America. It doesn't specify who can answer, and it's not in the Christian section. So deal with it. I don't believe in Christ, so it doesn't matter to me what you think he thinks.
"I don't believe in Christ" which makes ur comment "irrelevant!" Q didn't ask if there was going to be a "SEANCE!" Can ALL see what the word RELIGION attracts! Any THING that think their spirit is involved think they're RELIGIOUS; even SATAN!
Sorry it threatens you that people have different beliefs and drives you to such hostility. But if you look up 'religion,' check the Constitution, & HP guidelines, you'll learn you just have to deal with my existance. I'm not the one hounding you
It's not the "dictionary, Constitution, or HP guidelines" I'm speaking from but a "Christian" standpoint which the Q asked! The point is, Q didn't ask "Will there be a "religious/spirit" revival!" U addressed "religion & spirituality" - recruiti
Sorry N, you're wrong. I'm within my rights join discussions about any religion here. If you think otherwise, why not take a more dignified approach and just report me, rather than trying (and failing) to insult me or upset me?
I'm only telling u what GOD saysI U have a choice & can worship a tea kettle as far as I'm concerned but GOD'S WORD is what I give: 2Kgs21:6 "he dealt w/familiar spirits & wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provo
I assure you, I am following what I whole-heartedly and sincerely believe to be good, right and true. I know you think I'm wrong; I disagree. I gotta follow what my Gods tell me-- not what you say your God tells you. We can disagree & be respectf
Mackenzie, I like what o say. Tolerance is what is needed, in America and the rest of the world. But beware, Norine has a closed mind, full of dogma and a limited understanding of what she really spouts. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Wic: U've chosen! I'll "shake the dust off my feet" for it's no need to "cast pearls among swine!" Twilight: Same 2 u! "Birds of a feather flock together" (Ps 119:63)! Go & continue worshiping your "god" who "never beget" or "created" ANYTHING!
Twi, I know thx ) There is nothing so sad in my opinion as someone who can't see the massive ego it takes to think they are the only one to know the will of Gods. But she's shaken us from her feet now. I hope she finds peace someday.
Mackenzie, I made the mistake of getting into a conversation with Norine here & on one of her hubs. She is frighteningly intolerant, muddled in her reasoning & rude. Some knowledge but poorly expressed. Calls to mind heretic burners - Ha ha.
Muslims (Antichrist="never begat") are WORST than TWISTED "Christian" beliefs! The "inspired WORD of GOD" (II Tim 3:16) applies to ALL & it says "ANYONE preaching any other GOSPEL is "ACCURSED" (Gal 1:6-9) the ONE Scripture "Christians" not taugh
Norine, no, Muslims are not Wiccan. Wicca is a different religion than Muslims, which is why you lost me throwing Muslims into this. Scriptures are like any other myths, I don't take them literally. Glad you find spiritual inspiration, but I don't.
I was addressing Twi not u fool; it's under his name or can't u follow! I guess not since you're twisted in your religious belief (Satanic)! Job 1:6 applies! The devil is always in the midst of Christianity!
Nor, name calling like a child? Really? Why are so rude? That's just sad for you. You're not setting a good example of your faith. How am I supposed to know who you're addressing? You are commenting on my comments. Keep to the topic.
Oh... Ok. I'm sorry :'o(. That's very sad. I can't see how hostility will lead many people to Christ, but I am sorry you have to live with that anger. I do hope you find peace on your path. I can't imagine living with that kind of inner turmoil. GL
If Satan has already been defeated, why are you still railing at him? I think it's about time someone washed your abusive little mouth out with carbolic soap, Norine. take my word for it. Leave scripture & study written English. It would benefit
This world is his kingdom (temp) & his demonic spirits are recruiting naive ones (unbelievers) to act on his behalf. However, the end of the story will be fulfilled and HE HAS BEEN DEFEATED! Until then, we must warn you! Take IT or leave IT!
I am sorry for YOU N, not Xtians. I know Xtians who do not live with fear, anger & hostility eating them up in side. They find peace & joy in their faith. Wiccans to for that matter. You do not; therefore I'm sorry & hope you find peace.
You can't feel too sorry for me, calling me names & trying to insult me, lol. Your faith, I respect; your pov, I respect. your attitude contradicts your words though. People who find peace & spiritual fulfillment generally don't sound so agi
I 'm not "insulting you" but your belief which is AGAINST GOD! "Rebellion is as sinful as withcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols. So because you have rejected the command of the LORD, he has rejected you.." (I Sam 15:23)!
"Fool,' 'twisted,' etc. are insults. Coming off as if no one else has a right to be here is rude. You come off as rude & angry. Not your beliefs... your personality. Plenty of Christians espouse their beliefs w/out sounding rude. It's your attitu
Why do u thk we're called "CHRISTians?" READ Matt Chapter 23 to find out what JESUS called the Scribes & Pharisees! "FOOLS/HYPOCRITES" or "TWISTED!" "I would not have your "IGNORANT" (I Thess 4:13; I Cor 12:1; Rm 11:25) re: JESUS! Know Bible!
Listen Wiccan (Witch), if 1 proclaims to be a Christ-Follower 1 should do as HE did not just "pick out the parts" that are "politically correct!" I see same characteristics you have in PROCLAIMED CHRISTIANS on HP! SATAN "proclaiming" Christianity!
Mackenzie, Norine is just a rude ignorant cow with a closed mind. You'll never change her. She's probably a lonely, bitter and unfulfilled person with nothing in her life except misguided thoughts. Thank God that Jesus wasn't like her.
U r "IGNORANT" to HIS WORD (I Thess 4:13) & talk as a "FOOL" (Gal 3:1)! IF u would READ vs TRYING to insult, would KNOW how JESUS treated unbelievers - RUDE (Matt 23) & HIS final RUDENESS for unbelief is the Lake of FIRE! So GET READY!
Get a bloody life, woman & learn a bit of humility. You are such a poor advertisement for Christians. Your vicious comments make people ignore what you pretend to believe in. Also, learn to punctuate; your capitalisation & inverted commas are
I "REPEAT" GOD'S WORD & anyone who HATES is of SATAN! You all are not the ONLY ones! "Proclaimed" Christians HATE HIS WORD too! The Bible tells BELIEVERS to "REBUKE THEM SHARPLY" (Titus 1:13) but that's not what RELIGION has taught them!
That's not my world view, this 'god or devil' and 'good vs evil' concept. I don't believe it works like that. I don't have to choose false ultimatums. My faith has brought me down a good path; I have to follow mine as you have to follow yours.
U believe "right & wrong" then u believe "good & evil!" Not trying to persuade just letting u know what HIS WORD says! We ALL have a choice (Josh 24:15)! You've chosen; therefore, II Cor 4:1-18 applies!
Where do you think all of that "morality" (right/wrong) came from-society? How did u come to the conclusion that your religion is "right?" "Forces" powerful enough to create "Universe," you, me? lol Science still trying to catch up! And u & ur r
I'm speaking to a clairvoyant now who asked if one can be "Christian?" GOD is not pleased! Check out my answer to her question but since you don't believe, may be a waste of time but at least you'll know what GOD says!
Norine, read a 3rd grade science book. Problem solved. The Bible is a book of myths. Myths have meaning and are not 'lies'... they're just not facts, they did not literally happen. The Bible didn't fulfill anything. It's just stories written by man.
If you are LIMITED to "third grade science book," so be it! I'm talking BEYOND MAN - THE CREATOR - GOD - "HOLY" SPIRIT! PROVE HE doesn't exist by providing a book not "inspired by GOD" w/as many "accurate" fulfilled prophecies written before Bible!
If a "3rd grade science book" is your proof of more accurate fulfilled prophecies than the Bible, you are LIMITED! Problem is the spirit u worship is NOT AS POWERFUL as THE SPIRIT (CREATOR) & you KNOW this. The spirit (demon) u luv been DEFEATE
I suggested 3rd grd book to fit your apparent reading comprehension level. As for my Gods, they don't need me to act crazy and yell at people on their behalf. You don't have to believe in them, I know you're wrong though so I'm not worried.
When are you going to write in standard English, Norine? Your bizarre capitalisation and random speech marks distract one from understanding what rubbish you are writing. You may have some valid points but they are lost in your childish presentation
lol, again, no such thing as demons. Mythological boogiemen. When you tell me stuff I know is not true, it only reinforces my knowledge that you're wrong. I know my Gods, I have no doubts that you are wrong.
If HIS SPIRIT has "revealed" TRUTH to me & my BELIEF in Bible is Foundation for HIS SPIRIT "revealing" unto me; I'm SATISFIED! Now what have your "gods" done for you? I KNOW they didn't create u, let u breathe, take care of u rt or wrong, etc;wh
They've done so much; life is beautiful, I'm blessed. My Gods reveal truth to me; have been for 25 yrs. I'm very satisfied & at peace, so I don't feel need to harass people like you. Your God did not create me & has no part in my life. Just a
"so I don't feel need to harass people like you." REALLY? That's your JOB, SATAN! Why keep talking? Did they "reveal" this? Christians are the majority! What's wrong with that picture? Witches vs CHRIST? Stop belittling yourself w/your "gods!"
IF ur "gods" were that effective they would have more followers but ppl know they are demonic! Do u see "the crowd" w/me? I want waste any more breathe on "dogs" (Matt 7:6)! You've ALREADY DEFEATED (Rev 20:10); you & your "gods" (Demons)!
You're the one at war, N, not me. I'm just following what I believe to be true. I'm glad you're doing the same, I just don't share your beliefs. I have no doubts about my Gods, so as I've said, what you think about Them is irrelevant. I'm at peace.
Not enough characters, lol. But my religion is about my relationship with my Gods, and how I live my life, what I do with it while I live it... I'm not as concerned as you are about nitpicking on the details of how we got here, It doesn't matter.
Suffice it to say, the story you think is true, is not what I believe to be true... but again, the nature of the universe isn't a discussion to cover in 250 characters. I can recommend a book on my religion if you're that interested in learning.
Mackenzie, you and I are at polar opposites in our beliefs regarding God and religion (one of us - or both,could be right) but your patience and understanding towards the Dreadful Norine, is exemplary. Best wishes to you. Ian
Why am I "dreadful" Twi? For telling TRUTH: Allah is NOT GOD or he LIED! Qur'an 112:3 says Allah (God) "never begats" but the CREATOR (GOD) does (Gen 1:1)! TRUTH is "dreadful" to LIARS! There can be NO "two rights!" Either RIGHT or wrong!
You're dreadful because you’re unChristian But you taught me that Allah is God in Aramaic al-Ikhlās He is Allah, the one Allah, the eternally besought of all. He begetteth not, neither was He begotten And there is none comparable unto Him
So you've confirmed what I already supposed. You are ignorant & don't understand anything anyone here has tried to tell you. Allah is an Arabic & also Aramaic word meaning God. As Deo is Italian, Dieu is French, Gott is German. Translations!
No your IGNORANCE lies in believing the Prophet Muhammad who wrote saying "GOD said" & made ERRORS if he thinks MY GOD doesn't "begat!!" GOD (THE CREATOR) WILL "reveal" ALL LIES in ALL "man-made" RELIGIONS! "Be Still & Watch THE POWER of GOD
You (as scientist) can't explain where you came from & come up w/something as ridiculous as evolution or "farted fm stars!" You don't know where that evil spirit u worship came fm either! I do! GOD! U can't beat HIM may as well join HIM!
I'm not going to be interrogated in 250 characters or less, lol. I don't care if you share my beliefs, I'm not here to perform for you so you can insult me. Like I said, if you want to learn about my religion, I'd be happy to recommend a book.
Well, I'm not interested in any other power but the POWER of GOD & if you don't believe in that, we have no further discussion but I find it remarkable that one can't say where they believe they originated! "HIS hand is still stretched out" (Is)
Oh, I can say; I just choose not to have this conversation with you. You're fighting, I'm not.I don't really care what you believe in and wish you the best in following your path. I will continue on mine; I don't need to justify my beliefs to you.
Fighting? U wish! I know why u're upset & stalk! Worshiping GOD in SPIRIT scares the hell out of you for it is TRUTH & for someone to tell TRUTH is a threat to u, huh Satan? "Syrupy sweetness" doesn't work GOD "sees" u & hate witches!
I'm sorry YOU "think" MY GOD is so hateful! HE told me "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY" (2 Cor 3:17)! If you love MANY "gods," fine w/me; I'm just telling you what MY  GOD SAID! Why would a witch resp to a "CHRISTIAN" Rev?"
You continue to work for your "father" the devil (Jn 8:44)! U see "chastening" as wrong! Heb 12:8 "But if ye be w/o chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then ye are BASTARDS, and not sons." Get it? No chastisement=No LOVE!
Chastisement not devil: Even in the flesh, [I guess you had rules for your kids] one "chastises," so I don't know nothing? Well, if not, you're the ONLY parent who didn't have rules or "chastise!" If you didn't, "you don't know nothing!"
If u see "chastening" as "fighting," I hope you "fought" your kids as any good parent would! Satan has NEVER "valued GOD'S WORD," so what makes you start now? Since you don't I'll just "shake the dust off my feet," but "your blood is not on my hands
Christianity is the religion of suffering. Islamic State fights against Christians. I think that people do not want to suffer. People need religion that will unite all believers in the world. Only religion of happiness can unite all people and to stop all wars in the world!
And I, as a Muslim, feel embarrassed, ashamed, annoyed when ISIS or ISIL are referred to. Call them Daesh - they don't like that term.They are the scum of the planet. They have no connection with true Islam. They kills more Muslims than non Muslims.
One's "belief" should not make 1 "...feel embarrassed (Heb 13:6), ashamed (Rm 1:16) or annoyed (Eph 4:26-27)...!" See the diff in "man-made" doctrine and the "Gospel of Christ?" We are "ALL LOVE" (GRACE) toward those "IN CHRIST JESUS"&ITim2:4!
I do no think there will be a huge Christian revival in America because not too many Christian Americans want to step out of their comfort zones and spread Jesus Christ's Gospel. America desperately needs A revival in this day and age.
Poor things. Imagine what they would have suffered under real persecution. Lions, stonings, burnings at the stake etc. Poor little things being persecuted by scientists and thinkers. Oh bless them. Yeah! Right.
Yes. I believe there will be multiple revivals in different parts of the country and the world. We just need to stop idealizing the past and start recognizing that God works in different ways. Nothing is impossible to God.
I was making reference to the comment by Mackenzie Sage Wright: "the country going back to when almost everyone was Christian." I was also thinking about the Great Awakening. Peipwhontalk about revival usually want to go back to that time period.
Yes, there will be a Christian revival in the whole world, America included. Christians are contained in the body of Christ, therefore, as Christ resurrected and ascended so Christianity will resurrect and ascend.
The world continues to improve, and though America as we know it was established using cruelty (annihilating Natives, enslaving Africans, and oppressing the poor), it is striving to right these wrongs, and is becoming continually more sensitive to the plight of those less fortunate, both here and overseas. Yes, we could use a revival, but I don't think a Christian one would be a good idea, since it has a history of victim-blaming, criminal coddling, and basically demands obedience to muddled instructions without questioning. Currently, the only religions doing well are Buddhism and Baha'i Faith. Buddhism, which is far more ancient than Christianity, has no history of holy wars. Baha'i Faith strives to do away with all classes and racial / gender prejudice, and make the world one big country. I'm all for a Buddhist / Baha'i Faith revival!
Rock on, Norine. Yoleen gave an articulate and very embracing and sensible answer to the question; to which you replied in your usual muddled way quoting scripture that, perhaps you are not aware of, is not universal.
NW - I wasn't going to grace your comment with an answer, but the time I was a fool was when I was a devout Christian who put my life in danger by joining a cult. I don't see how losing respect for an indifferent Deity makes me an even bigger fool.
YO: "the time I was a fool was when I was a devout Christian." You were NOT a "devout Christian" but one who LISTENED to MAN vs THE HOLY SPIRIT! Now u blame your actions on GOD! Man deceived-NOT GOD! We ALL make mistakes; so what? Press FORWARD!
Sure is Satan! New Covenant="and their sins I will remember no more!" You quote WORD under THE LAW: IGNORANT OLD COVENANT THINKER for JESUS had not yet DIED when HE said that & we were still "UNDER THE LAW!" FOOL!
Who should tame the tongue? A member of the body of Christ so as not to disrespect the Head (Christ). Thank goodness for the forgiveness in the new covenant upon REPENTANCE. He only remembers them no more when you repent.
I will NEVER repent of WORD! You are an IGNORANT FOOL if you can't see every since I've come to HP was to tell TRUTH but Satan (you) prevents! There is NO LIGHT IN YOU! Just ego tripping! You are an immature "proclaimed"Christian under OC(Atheist)
Norine, how and why can you be so rude to so many people? Calling others Fools and Satan etc. You are an intolerant, bad mouthed person who one should feel sorry for. But you are so bitter and self-righteous that I don't think you deserve pity.

I was kind! I could've said WORST to another "Accuser of the brethren!" See who u resemble; Atheist & unbelievers (Ps 119:63)? Can't u see you've been "demonized" by Satan? Again, I ask, are you JEALOUS of GOD giving me "revelation" of HIS WOR
