Matt Bennett, Founder and CEO of Christian Union, wrote this article as the first of 40 daily devotionals produced by Day and Night to accompany its call to 40 days of prayer and fasting for America.     “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour…

VIRAL LOVE IN TIMES OF CRISIS

By forerunner | March 20, 2020 | 0 Comments

The story of pandemics is as old as human history. In fact, the rise of Christianity probably would not have happened without them. A close look at the records from Roman cities of the era reveals that the Christian response to epidemics is a large part of the reason why faith triumphed over unbelief….

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…

Why Everyone Should Participate in the Collegiate Day of Prayer

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE COLLEGIATE DAY OF PRAYER

I believe it is imperative for the church at large to pray for our campuses on the Collegiate Day of Prayer. Here are some reasons why, and benefits of, participating in the CDOP…

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?…

A LIGHT THAT TRANSFORMS

A LIGHT THAT TRANSFORMS

Christmas should not depress or exhaust us but should transform us! Each year, my highlight of this season is to reflect on Jesus, the light of the world entering human history as a baby to begin a global invasion of everything good (John 1:5–8). Through the purity, goodness, and love that emanated from Jesus resting…

IT'S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD'S KINGDOM

IT’S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD’S KINGDOM

I have two ambitions in life: to warn the body of Christ about activities that are being embraced in our culture that are proven to provoke God’s judgment, and to see the body of Christ experience dramatically more fruit. Everything I do revolves around this two-fold mission . . . and I love it!  …
