Joel 2:28-29 NKJV
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”
God is moving. And He is moving powerfully. Despite people saying there was no hope for America, that it is no longer a Christian nation and never can be again. God is doing a revival in America.
Tonight I watched a testimony of Brian “Head” Welch, former member of the band Korn. It was part of a YouTube series called I am second. I was amazed and excited to see how powerfully God saved him.
Scanning the list of related videos I saw one that was by Anne Rice that was part of the same series. I thought, no that can’t be the same Anne Rice. I was only debating against a quote of hers with an atheist friend on Facebook over the morality of God. Let me put her quote on here so you can see why I was so surprised.
“One reason I fear Christianity is I believe it pressures one to accept an immoral God. Take Jesus as your savior, I was told, and you can smile as he hurls countless others into a lake of fire, including the Dalai Lama, Ghandi, Anne Frank, and all those friends and neighbors who don’t “believe” in Him. I found this idea pagan and ugly. Don’t try to be superior to God, I was told. His ways are mysterious. Well, I wanted my ways to be moral, merciful, kind and just. I may fail every day at this but I want to try. This is a magnificent world we live in; surely it wasn’t made for a fiery apocalypse. To love, to serve, to witness, to try to do something meaningful– that is what makes sense to me.” -Anne Rice
Now, this is what our debate started on. Please watch this video before you continue to read.
What!?!?!? Are you serious!?!?!?! God is capturing the heart of the druggy rock star as well as the hard hearted atheist intellectual. Of course I hurriedly posted this video at the end of the post with my atheists friend over Anne Rice’s new found change of heart.
Amazing, simply amazing.
Never give up hope my friends, God is God. There is nothing too hard for Him. There is hope for America. This hope is God Himself. He must be Savior, and He is showing Himself as powerful as ever.
Romans 15:13 NKJV
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Galatians 6:9 NKJV
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
