The public forums in America and the Western world have been all but swept clean of references to God, faith, and religion. Many are ready to label America and the West as post-Christian. But don’t play taps yet. God is about to speak and come moving mightily among the unlikely.
Get ready, those past their prime who still have some God-fire smoldering in their hearts, your embers are about to be fanned into flame. Let golden years turn to glory years and burn with renewed passion for God so all can see.
Get ready, those who have wearied of ritual and routine and fancy entertainment and have quit playing the games, fire is pursuing you. Stop, let it catch you and cleanse you and send you flaming into society’s darkness.
Get ready, those who don’t want to follow their parents’ faith, a fiery faith is breaking out. Be ignited and blaze with Christ.
Uncontained spiritual fire, the kind that spontaneously spreads everywhere is breaking out. Don’t run away. Let it overtake you and rage within you. Carry the flames to the dry souls that surround you.
Nashville, Tennessee get ready. For out of you comes a move of God that will spread around the world. Youth and young adults with their grandparents (millennials and boomers — old hippies and young hipsters) dancing together in the glory of God, weeping together in His holy presence on the streets, burning bonfires of the things that formerly held them in bondage; generating forgiveness between generations, reconciliation, radical spiritual transformation.
Light, light. Light for all who will see.
