Revival Over Riots: Take a Stand for Christ


In these times, the harvest is so close, but we see so many leaders sitting down instead of standing up. Jesus made it clear that the harvest is plenty, but the harvesters are few.

I believe this has never been truer than today. Great movements are ripe on the vine in times of social and world chaos. Now that the harvest is ripe, we see a nation of cowards retreat into a tomb filled with lies promising safety.

Benjamin Franklin said, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." I'm so glad Jesus doesn't give us what we deserve; however, the lesson speaks boldly from a great man in our nation's history.

Safety based in fear will not give you liberty. Liberty is waiting at the end of the roar released from the Lion of the tribe of Judah. People are looking for leaders to lead in this season. Are you going to lead?

This is the greatest time to step up and be all that God has called you to be. Times of crisis will elevate you to new levels of leadership if you will just let God roar through you. In this short podcast, I share why I'm taking a stand and leading a mass revival protest at the state capitol of California. This very well could be the biggest event of this kind in California history as people have started to stand with me across the nation.

On Aug. 1, people will fly in from all over the United States to take a stand. This movement is called "Revival over Riots," and we are now scheduling these mass revival protests across the nation and even at the United States Capitol. Listen and learn how you can plug in.
