America's Hope Rally Urges Return to Christ

Christian radio host Rick Wiles says there's a simple solution for America's complex problems: "The nation must return to Jesus Christ. There is no other option that will succeed."

Wiles is the founder and president of Trunews--a one hour international newscast broadcast on the Internet and three world-band radio stations. Trunews recently sponsored a major public event to drive home Wiles' message. The Christian broadcast ministry sponsored a three-night event in Vero Beach, Fla. titled America's Hope. The theme: "Jesus Christ is America's only hope."

Trunews purchased a huge revival tent--nearly 10,000 feet in space--and 1,000 padded folding chairs, and invested tens of thousands of dollars in a widespread advertising campaign throughout Florida's Treasure Coast. The advertising campaign included half-page newspaper advertisements, television commercials on Comcast Cable TV, and 60-second commercials on talk radio and Christian radio stations.

Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jewish pastor from New Jersey, opened the first night with a message titled "God's harbinger to America." According to Cahn, there are troubling parallels to the September 11 attacks found in Biblical passages in the Book of Isaiah. Cahn warned the America's Hope audience that the US appears to be mimicking the same mistakes made by the ancient Israelites. If he is correct, the consequences for America will be disastrous. Cahn recently published a new book titled "The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future."

Trunews host Rick Wiles delivered the keynote message on the second night. The former Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) marketing director told the audience about the life-changing vision he experience in 1998 while working for TBN in Irving, Texas. In the vision, Wiles saw American cities on fire and stunned refugees fleeing the burning buildings. He told the audience that the vision was so stunning that he eventually resigned from TBN and traveled across the US for nine months speaking to audiences about trouble coming to America. He told audiences in 1998 and 1999 about Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, nuclear terrorism, food terrorism, cyber attacks, and a coming financial collapse caused by a crash in the derivatives market.

Dr. Allen Keyes was the keynote speaker for the third night. The former US ambassador delivered a speech about the origin of our freedoms and liberties--and the on-going assault today to erode those rights. Keyes boldly proclaimed that our rights come from God, not government.

Wiles, senior pastor of Flowing Streams Church in Vero Beach, said the purpose of the three-day event was to accentuate the message that there are no political solutions to America's economic, political, and social problems. "Many Americans--including devout Christians--are mistakenly looking to the 2012 elections as a solution to the nation's worsening condition," he said. "No politician can fix our problems. Jesus Christ is America's only hope."

Wiles strongly supports Christian involvement in the political process, but he said that's not the solution. The blame for America's problems does not belong in Washington, he argued, it belongs in the pulpits of America's lukewarm churches.

"If Christians really desire to change America, they must change the hearts of millions of men and women who no longer follow God's ways," Wiles said. "This nation has lost its fear of God. If we don't return to obeying God's commandments, this nation will continue to decline until it collapses under the weight of its sins and rebellion. There's not much time left for the USA to decide which way it wants to go."
