America’s Desperate Need for Revival: A Call to Spiritual Awakening

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Bite-Sized Motivation

In the heart of every Christian beats a fervent desire for revival—a profound awakening of spiritual consciousness that transcends the bounds of human effort and transforms nations from within. As an evangelical, I firmly believe that America stands at a critical juncture in its history, where the need for revival has never been more urgent. In a world inundated with political strife, economic uncertainty, and military tensions, it is clear that these worldly solutions alone cannot heal the deep-seated spiritual malaise afflicting our nation. Instead, what America desperately needs is a revival—an outpouring of divine grace that can only be sparked by a genuine spiritual awakening.

The history of revivalism is rich with examples of how God has intervened in human affairs to revive the hearts of individuals and nations alike. From the Great Awakening of the 18th century to the Welsh Revival of 1904, these movements have demonstrated the power of God to transform societies from the inside out. As the renowned preacher Jonathan Edwards once proclaimed, “The only hope of a nation lies in the righteousness of the Church.” Indeed, the Church has a sacred duty to be a beacon of light in a world engulfed by darkness, and revival is the means by which this light can shine brightest.

The Wesley brothers, John and Charles, were instrumental figures in the First Great Awakening, preaching a message of personal salvation and holiness that ignited the hearts of countless individuals. John Wesley famously declared, “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.” Such was the fervor of their conviction that it sparked a revival that swept across continents, leaving in its wake a legacy of transformed lives and renewed communities.

Similarly, George Whitefield, with his impassioned sermons and tireless evangelism, played a pivotal role in the First Great Awakening, drawing immense crowds and stirring hearts with his proclamation of the Gospel. His words still resonate today: “The soul is most affected when it is exercised with the most weighty and important matters.” In an age marked by superficiality and distraction, Whitefield’s emphasis on the eternal significance of the soul serves as a timely reminder of what truly matters.

Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” carried on the legacy of revivalism into the 19th century with his powerful sermons and unwavering commitment to biblical truth. He once proclaimed, “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.” Spurgeon’s words ring true in an era where entertainment often takes precedence over edification, reminding us of the importance of staying true to the Gospel message even in the face of opposition.

Leonard Ravenhill, a 20th-century revivalist known for his uncompromising message and fervent prayers, echoed the urgent call for revival in his generation: “Today’s church wants to be raptured from responsibility.” Ravenhill’s words serve as a sobering reminder that revival requires more than mere enthusiasm or emotionalism—it demands a willingness to confront sin and seek God’s face with humility and sincerity.

In the midst of America’s current challenges, it is tempting to place our trust in political leaders, economic policies, or military strength to secure our future. However, history has shown time and again that such worldly solutions are ultimately fleeting and insufficient. As the psalmist declares, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Psalm 20:7). Only through a genuine spiritual awakening can America experience the lasting transformation it so desperately needs.

Revival begins with repentance — a turning away from sin and a turning towards God in humble submission. As the apostle James admonishes, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:8). It is only when we humble ourselves before God and acknowledge our need for His mercy and grace that revival can take root in our hearts and spread throughout our land.

As evangelical Christians, we have a solemn responsibility to pray fervently for revival and to live lives that reflect the transformative power of the Gospel. We must be willing to stand boldly for truth in a culture that often rejects it, to love sacrificially in a world consumed by selfishness, and to proclaim the hope of Christ in a society plagued by despair. In doing so, we can be agents of revival in our homes, our churches, and our communities, trusting in the promise of Scripture that “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

In conclusion, America’s need for revival has never been more urgent, and the time for spiritual awakening is now. Let us heed the call of history’s revivalists and seek God’s face with renewed fervor and dedication. May we never lose sight of the transformative power of the Gospel and the hope it offers for our nation’s future. As the hymn writer William Cowper famously penned, “Where is the blessedness I knew when first I saw the Lord? Where is the soul-refreshing view of Jesus and His word?” Let us pray earnestly for a revival of such blessedness in our time, trusting in the faithfulness of God to answer our prayers and heal our land.

Antisemitic college demonstrators should be expelled

Published

on

Jewish students are being assaulted on American and European campuses with a viciousness that is reminiscent of 1938 Nazi Germany. The demonstrators, many of whom are professional agitators in their 40s who have been trained to cause mayhem, scream “kill the Jews” as they physically prevent Jewish students from attending classes. Jewish students were told to “go back to Poland.” In New York City, Jewish students at Cooper Union sheltered in a library while pro-Palestinian demonstrators banged on its glass windows and doors. Protesters at Tulane University assaulted a Jewish student, breaking his nose.

“This truly has been the worst antisemitism crisis on campus that we have seen for a generation,” said Edward Isaacs, president of the Union of Jewish Students in the UK, “and its impacts run deep throughout the Jewish student population.”

With few notable exceptions, college administrators have coddled the demonstrators instead of expelling them for committing assault, destroying university property and creating an unsafe environment. Local police have been told to stand down instead of enforcing the law.

When it comes to choosing sides between violent antisemitic demonstrators and Jewish students who simply want an education, I am clearly coming to the defense of the innocent students. Instead of hearing angry responses from people who object to the flagrant contempt by the demonstrators for law and order, we have witnessed members of Congress, led by Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Cori Bush (D-Minn.), express their demands that police should protect the violent demonstrators.

Omar and Bush have compared police responses after pro-Hamas protests on campus to the so-called Kent State massacre of May 4, 1970, where four students were killed by the Ohio National Guard. The students in that case were protesting against American military involvement in Vietnam. “On the 54th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre, students across our country are being brutalized for standing up to endless war,” Bush tweeted on X. “Our country must learn to actually uphold the rights of free speech & assembly upon which it was founded. Solidarity with our students.”

Are we denying the free speech and assembly rights of the demonstrators? The real question is, should we protect speech when it becomes violent? The answer is straightforward. When violence occurs, it is no longer about protecting free speech—the rule of law must be upheld. “Violence, vandalism, and antisemitic harassment and intimidation are not free speech and those engaging in this behavior should be held accountable,” read a statement from Congressman Adam Schiff’s office.

When it comes to free speech, the pro-Hamas protestors are intolerant of opposing points-of-view. One student at Columbia University made that clear when she expressed sympathy with pro-Palestinian protesters and not with students of opposing views. “At the end of the day,” she said, “I don’t want a relationship with students who don’t support the cause.” Free speech for me but not for thee.

Many of the current crop of demonstrators who are physically assaulting Jewish students, shouting “death to the Jews,” believe they have the right to exercise violence in support of their views and think they should bear no consequences for their violent actions. They are upset at the prospect of being suspended or expelled. Most of them wear keffiyeh and Covid masks, presumably to protect their future Goldman Sachs job prospects.

“I think that the university needs to start with dismissing all their charges against the students if they want to rebuild trust,” said a deluded student at Columbia. Alex Morey, director of campus rights advocacy at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, disagreed. “That doesn’t mean that students are immune from the consequences of their actions,” Morey said. “You don’t want to see cops in riot gear descend on peaceful student protests. But if they’re breaking the rules and engaging in civil disobedience … sometimes that’s what has to happen,” she says.

Beating up Jewish students and destroying campus property do not come under the heading of civil disobedience. They constitute a flagrant contempt for law and order. Such activities must be stopped right at the outset. Jewish students across America are terrified, as they should be. They will not feel safe on their college campuses as long as hateful, antisemitic rhetoric, violence or intimidation go unaddressed.

Violent, antisemitic demonstrators deserve to be arrested, put in jail, and then expelled from the university. Campus administrators like Minouche Shafik at Columbia who attempt to negotiate with the neo-Nazis are doing a disservice to our republic. University leaders should take “personal responsibility” for protecting Jewish students on campus, said UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. This is not 1938 and we must not give an inch to the haters.

Biden: Admit Hamas Terrorists

Published

on

Joe Biden’s policies reflect the contempt he and his handlers have for our country. The latest example is Joe’s announcement that he wants to bring thousands of Palestinian “refugees” into the US with a pathway to citizenship. This will certainly include members of the terrorist organization known as Hamas. In what conceivable way does this benefit America? “Whatever hurts America the most,” said author Sean Parnell, “is often where the Biden Administration lands on any given issue.”

According to CBS News, “The Biden administration is considering bringing certain Palestinians to the US as refugees, a move that would offer a permanent safe haven to some of those fleeing war-torn Gaza, according to internal federal government documents.” Which Palestinians? Those “who have immediate family members who are American citizens or permanent residents. Those who pass a series of eligibility, medical and security screenings would qualify to fly to the US with refugee status, which offers beneficiaries permanent residency, resettlement benefits like housing assistance and a path to American citizenship.”

Requiring a connection to “American citizens or permanent residents” is a subterfuge when you consider that activists in Dearborn, Michigan were heard chanting “death to America.” These people, who support Hamas and its terrorist activities, make it likely that we would be admitting Hamas terrorists. It is important to recognize, as pointed out by journalist Katie Pavlich, that the Palestinian Center for Policy Survey and Research found that 72 percent of Palestinian respondents believe that Hamas’ attack on October 7 was “correct.”

As reported in Townhall, “A ‘path to American citizenship’ would also mean that these people would get to vote, likely one more tactic of how Biden is looking to gain support from the far-left, anti-Israel part of the Democratic Party. The Biden administration would thus not just be bringing over future potential Democratic voters, but be bringing over ones who are among a population that we know supports Hamas and their attack against our ally in the Middle East.”

A wave of commentators condemned Biden’s plans. “We are ruled by malicious traitors,” said Blaze commentator Auron MacIntyre. “Horrifying,” said NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck. “We are a nation committing suicide.”

“Anyone seeing the protests on college campuses right now should not need to be told why ideology matters when conferring the privilege of access to the United States to outsiders,” said Daily Wire reporter Megan Basham. “We do not need more people here whose worldview so clearly clashes with that of the American founding. We should not accept immigrants from among people known to harbor terrorists.”

More than two dozen Republican senators are calling Biden’s policy a national security risk. As reported in The Hill, “The GOP senators doubt that the Biden administration could prevent Hamas-members or other members of a terrorist group from entering the US. ‘We are not confident that your administration can adequately vet this high-risk population for terrorist ties and sympathies before admitting them into the United States,’ they wrote.”

“The open border isn’t enough,” Senate Republicans added. “Now Biden wants to import people who supported the murder and rape of Israelis. Unfortunately, the risk of terrorists entering our homeland is no hypothetical matter,” the senators wrote, citing that in 2023 border officials arrested 169 people on the FBI terror watchlist.

“President Biden consistently undermines our national security with reckless decisions like this,” said Sen. Tim Scott. “We have no clue who is coming into our country, whether on our southern border or from war-torn regions run by terrorists. Not a single Hamas sympathizer should be let into this country.”

The administration kept its intentions secret until this week. No one knew about it. Commentator Mark Levin is angry that Congress did not seem to know about it, or if they did, nothing was done to stop it.

Biden’s anti-American actions prove that he is an infiltrator. Does he do the bidding of Iran or China? The Squad also are infiltrators—they have infiltrated our Congress. They hate America. What sort of country allows this? If he gets another four years, Joe and his Obama/Soros puppet masters will complete the destruction of our country.

“Other insanities aside,” someone tweeted, “this is politically insane. Biden is forcing people to consider voting for Trump. I have every intention of leaving President blank in Nov, but not if Biden insists on opening the doors to a terrorist state.”
