Have Churches Evolved Into Entertainment Centers

HAVE CHURCHES EVOLVED INTO ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS?

By David Warn | May 15, 2019 | 0 Comments

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

By David Warn | April 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

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…

MONEY IN A TIME OF CRISIS—PART ONE

We long for financial security through stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, savings accounts, and precious metals. But pursuing the accumulation of wealth through each of these means does not provide the certain guarantee that God does. Financial investment for most people will be a fruitful endeavor in seasons of prosperity, but most likely not during…

BUT WHAT SHOULD I DO?

In my last post, I warned that something sudden could happen to our nation. As I have read the Scriptures related to nations and sought the LORD, I believe this is a real possibility.   The frequent response to such a warning is, “What should I do to prepare?” You can find my answer to…

WHAT IF…

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon BP oil rig explosion took place in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon eleven workers were confirmed dead, 115 were rescued, the 500 million dollar oil rig disintegrated into the water, and 8,000 barrels of crude oil a day began pouring into the Gulf. All of this happened within…

LOCAL ACTION REQUIRED

As someone who focuses on national topics, I also realize that I need to engage locally. Not only am I referring to sharing my faith, but also the need to stand firm in the public square on all kinds of issues.   Like me, you may find yourself  concerned by  various  national trends, federal policies and laws, and countless alarming activities taking place from coast to coast. But locally—wow—did I have a wake-up call of…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017—PART 2

For the last 18 months, presidential primaries, campaigns, debates, the election, and finally the inauguration dominated the news. This is why I posted my last blog that included a prayer focused on the presidency and our government. Now, let’s turn to an equally important topic:  “We the people.”   Whenever “we the people” ask our…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017

In a matter of hours Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office and become the 45th president of the United States. It cannot be emphasized enough that leadership at every level of government matters; indeed, government is God’s instrument to maintain law and order and to carry out His purposes (Rom. 13:1-7). I…

GOOD NEWS

When we think of God judging a nation or the entire world, we often feel troubled in our spirits. And in part, this response is good and right. The Scriptures teach that we should tremble at His Word and at what may come upon any wayward, rebellious nation (Isa. 66:1-2; Jer. 18:7-10).   In America…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART THREE

Last February, I went on extended fast. I did not have a specific purpose, other than wanting to be closer to the Lord.   And the Lord did bring me closer. By the last two weeks, He was speaking to my heart almost daily, through His Word and through His still small voice on one…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART TWO

As we continue our spiritual preparation journey, what else are we to do? As much as possible, we must know what to do. So, let’s continue.   Fourth, prepare in community. In light of what I believe is coming to our nation, it would be a serious miscalculation for one person to try to make…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART ONE

The title above assumes that something is coming to our nation for which we need to prepare.   Whether we look at the declining influence of Christianity in America, the humanistic stronghold on higher education (an atmosphere in which I ministered for 27 years), the mainstreaming of sexual perversion, or the national debt closing in…
