Making America Great Again

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

By Timothy Zebell | September 18, 2019 | 0 Comments

For Christians to sit as spectators in the stands while rooting for President Trump to Make America Great Again is foolishness. Government and legislation are important but can only take a nation so far. How then can the church be used of God to make America great again?

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HOLINESS?

By David Warn | August 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

It’s a rare conversation when Christians discuss how to live a holy life. Indeed, conversations often lean toward embracing a form of grace that does not appear in the Bible and results in people feeling less convicted about sinful habits and repeated failures to follow God….

The Dangers of Normalcy Bias

THE DANGERS OF NORMALCY BIAS

I’m outside enjoying the unusually green July grass, birds singing, lush forest, and I’m not in a hurry to do anything while I sip a cup of coffee. It seems almost impossible that something could disturb this peaceful atmosphere. And yes, I want it to last as long as possible.   Even so, as I…

Is FOA Politically Motivated?

IS FOA POLITICALLY MOTIVATED?

At Forerunners of America, we are focused on warning people about three things:   1) The consequences of ignoring our national purpose of drawing people back to God (Acts 17:26–27) 2) The consequences of God’s people remaining silent on moral issues in our country 3) The consequences of our nation’s rebellion against God’s moral standards…

Are You Sleeping

ARE YOU SLEEPING?

There are few things more tragic than a sleeping church in a time of great need. In Luke 9:32, as Jesus prayed on the mountain, His appearance was radically transfigured. Yet, Peter, James and John almost missed it, simply because they were “overcome with sleep”….

Have Churches Evolved Into Entertainment Centers

HAVE CHURCHES EVOLVED INTO ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS?

Wilhem Ten Boom, a Dutch pastor in the 1930’s, tried to awaken his listeners to a biblical understanding of Europe’s instability and the rise of a new dictator, Adolph Hitler. Rather than responding to his messages with faith-filled action, one church after another decided…

Full Engagement

FULL ENGAGEMENT

My overarching takeaway from our recent Forerunners conference is the necessity for me (and each of God’s people) to become fully engaged in God’s now purposes. Simply put, a business-as-usual mindset will not win the day nor adequately prepare us for the future.   As a backdrop to this takeaway, I am reminded that Jesus…

Something Stunning Just Happened! Will We Sustain It?

A STUNNING THING JUST HAPPENED! WILL WE SUSTAIN IT?

Before describing the stunning movement of prayer that God orchestrated last week from coast to coast, let me briefly provide some context.   For almost 100 years, concluding around 1915, there was serious national engagement in prayer for college students. Many believers, the vast majority of whom had never attended college themselves, paused on the…

ADDRESSING THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR NATION

ADDRESSING THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR NATION

After listening to Tuesday’s State of the Union Address, I couldn’t help but to consider the spiritual state of our nation. The following is a warning – a warning over realities that are only seen with spiritual eyes (2 Cor. 4:16–18). First, I will share my burden for the nation and the condition of the…

Does God Support Open Borders

DOES GOD SUPPORT OPEN BORDERS?

The controversy over how to secure our southern border has produced the longest government shutdown in America’s history. Much has been said about the morality of building a wall, its effectiveness, the cost, and whether President Trump is demanding a wall for political gain. However, as this debate rages, I can’t seem to escape this question: How much of the resistance to secure our borders is rooted in an ideological commitment to globalism?…
