Chaos – The New Normal That Must Be Replaced

By David Warn | June 24, 2020 | 0 Comments

Stunned, I sat listening to an African American brother in Christ explain that last weekend, near the area in Chicago where he grew up, 104 Blacks were shot—almost exclusively by other Blacks—and 14 died. As our conversation concluded, his remarks piqued my interest: “Where is Black Lives Matter now? Why are there no protests over…

Something Must Change

By Timothy Zebell | June 16, 2020 | 0 Comments

Where are we as a nation when a pagan is giving greater voice to truth than our Christian leaders? And how is it that she managed to stand more firm in her beliefs when she came under fire for her boldness than what I often witness in the Christian community? Perhaps it is time we…

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 3)

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 2)

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 1)

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…
