There’s No Real “Revival” Without Deep and Brutal Repentance

(* The following is from my new bestselling book, John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening)

I predict that if the Church in America is going to experience a revival, a reformation, a renaissance (whatever you wanna call it) it’ll first experience a Rude Awakening. The reason being is the American Church, like the world, has a massive entitlement mentality, a Laodicean fascination with stuff, a cowardice before evil politicians and their satanic policies, an aversion to godly duty, an addiction to avarice, and a laissez faire attitude regarding the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. In addition to that slop, the Church also sports in spades an allergic reaction to any preaching that steps on their well pedicured toes. Which means, my beloved, some Christians toes are going to get walked on. Remember, the “Rude Awakening” brought to you by John The Baptist always precedes the “Great Awakening” brought toyou by Jesus. True revival can be brutal, especially for the fragile evangelical snowflakes who are used to being handled with kid gloves.

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
