Does the Bible Really Say That Things Will Only Get Worse?
I concluded my recent article on "The 10 Commitments of a Jesus Revolutionary" with these words: "Let's work together with the Lord to see a Jesus revolution sweep the nation-and the nations."

In response, "Princess" wrote, "I hate to be a bearer of bad tidings, but I read my Bible, and there is not going to be any moral, cultural or spiritual revolution. There is going to be a great falling away, which is happening now. Someone has been listening to too many dominionists. Are you still going to be faithful, as almost everyone around you compromises? I pray that I have grace to stand."

I really appreciate Princess's challenge for us to stand firm in the midst of compromise and apostasy-it's a message I constantly preach as well-and yes, we will all need God's grace to keep us strong in the coming days.

And without a doubt, we are in the midst of a great falling away here in America (and some other countries), and there are verses that seem to speak of a final end-time rebellion against God.

But like Princess, I read my Bible too, and I find a very different picture painted there, one that speaks of great outpouring and great harvest alongside of great darkness and great apostasy.

And I'm actually not listening to any "dominionists." (To be honest, "dominionist" is a term normally used by critics who claim that born-again Christians are trying to take over the world.)

I'm doing my best to listen to the Spirit and to base my beliefs on the Word, and to the core of my being, I believe it is the Lord who is stirring my heart and the hearts of His people to seek Him for a sweeping revival that will bring holy upheaval to the nation.

Where is it written in the Word that this will not happen? Where does the Bible say that it cannot happen?

Consider these five simple points.
