What in the world happened to the church? Where is her clarion call for righteousness? Where is her authority? Where is her courage to speak boldly into the critical issues of our day? Where is her faith that the Word of God will not return empty?
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isa 55:10–11)
I submit that the church has lost her prophetic voice.
We are at the point now where we can hardly discern the impact of righteousness on the nation. Consider this: There are about 300,000 churches in America; 300,000 army outposts for Christ, the King and Ruler of the universe; 300,000 groups of elders who are boldly declaring God’s Words, right? How in the world can 300,000 churches in a country of 30 million be doing this badly? Has God abandoned us? I don’t think He has. Perhaps, we have abandoned Him.
This is the heart of this book: The Playbook: Five Strategic Plays to Restore the Prophetic Voice of the Church in America.
Simply put, I believe if the church is to recapture her prophetic voice, the Gospel must be Reclaimed, Holiness must be Reestablished, the Family must be Reformed, the Church must get Ready through biblical Stewardship for what lies ahead, and Trust in Church Leaders must be Restored. We must purposely teach our children (and adults too for that matter!) a Biblical Worldview. We must repent of misusing God's Word and once again cry aloud and spare not!
