The following article is largely based on a posting on our 'Prophetic' Email Discussion List.
The following vision by Rick Joyner is one that I believe is crucially important, and gives us real insight into some of the characteristics of the coming move of God. In the vision he sees "Right-wing" extremists waiting in the wings to give the youth a 'cause' to fight for, if the Christians are not quick to give them the true cause. One thing that is very important to grasp is that the coming Revival will clearly come in with a wave of "right-wing" sentiment that is already building steadily around the world, though it is still largely submerged. For the last thirty years we have lived in an environment of "Leftish" dominance in the West (where feminism, political correctness, liberalism, sexual permissivness, etc, have held sway). But this is about to change, and it is likely to change violently, with extreme elements taking advantage of it if the Christians fail to do so. What we are looking at is a kind-of 'sixties' revolution, but in the opposite direction (ie. towards conservative values rather than permissivness). The devil is very aware of this, and he is an expert at using such 'revolutionary' swings of sentiment. This is how Hitler got into power, after all. Left or right, it matters little to the devil so long as he is in charge. He will happily ride a fascist tide, just as easily as he will ride a permissive one. But the coming 'philosophical revolution' in the West is also a golden opportunity for Christians to seize the moment and for God to move mightily around the world. Such moments often come only once or twice in an entire generation. If the Christians "seize the day" and use the tide that is turning against permissivness and political correctness to point to Jesus Christ and His Truth, then there can be a great harvest (particularly amongst the youth) around the world. But woe betide us if we miss such a golden opportunity. We live in a sin-sick world - rapidly tiring of sleaze and violence, but not quite sure what coherent alternative there might be. The tide has been turning for some time, but the wave that is coming will be far more violent than most people realize. Unless the Christians channel and harness this wave, then a form of right-wing extremism could well take hold in the West, particularly amongst the youth. We live in truly dangerous times, and unless God can find 'men and women of valour' to stand up for His Truth at this time, then we will deserve everything we get. I have thought about all this a great deal over the last few years, and I am convinced that this wave is not far away. Already these sentiments are bubbling everywhere just below the surface. (Just talk to a few worldy people and you'll see how widespread these 'conservative' sentiments are). But as yet there is no coherent 'movement' to give voice to these sentiments in a down-to-earth way. The devil would love to provide just such a movement at the right moment, if the Christians cannot. (He will point to reactionary politics as the answer, rather than Christ). I believe God is giving us this challenge. And what fools are we, if we let it pass us by. There has probably never been a time when the old saying about "seizing the day" has been more applicable to the Christian church. But if we think "preachers in suits" are going to reach the youth of this generation, then we must be out of our minds. Truly, great daring and boldness is required. Tell me, friend, will you rise to the tremendous challenge that confronts us? -Andrew Strom. ************** From the MorningStar Bulletin, Jan 96:- A VISION FROM RICK JOYNER: I saw multitudes of young people, black and white together, marching and demonstrating. They all carried banners but there was nothing written on them. I then heard a voice from heaven saying, "Who will give them their cause?" I saw a long line of men and women waiting to speak to the crowd. They represented many different causes, but to my shock most of them were Nazis. I then felt a gripping urgency to speak to this great crowd before they did. INTERPRETATION: Before my conversion I went to many rock festivals and anti-war demonstrations. I had some political convictions, but they were mostly an excuse for going to the party. I found the same to be true of most of the others who went. However, I was always amazed at how these people would become raging lions of courage during these demonstrations, suffering beatings or worse before they would retreat. This was the same radical resolve I saw on the young people in the vision. If the church does not rise up to give our youth a cause, and one that requires radical commitment, another cause will write its name on their banners. The greatest threat this time will not be socialism or communism, but fascism. APPLICATION: The youth are going to be mobilized again, and they are waiting for a cause. They will respond to radical Christianity, but they will be repulsed by watered-down versions. If the church does not fill the increasing void in youth that demands a cause, they will turn to a power that will mobilize them for the most sinister reasons. I felt that my urgency to speak to this crowd was from the Lord. I felt inadequate, and did not know what I was going to say, but I knew that if I started speaking I would have their attention, and that I had a very real opportunity to win them over. We just need to start with what we have, with what we feel, and trust the Lord to give us the words and the strategy as we begin to minister to the youth. If we neglect the youth now, we will pay a very terrible price later. -------------------- -From MorningStar web-site - http://www.eaglestar.org/
