The question arises, "If these are the end times, would God send a revival when He has already predicted apostasy and spiritual decline?"
The answer is "Yes!" He gave opportunity to Noah's family, Lot's family, and the believers in Jericho and Nineveh to repent and be spared. Why wouldn't
He give an opportunity, especially to the young people of our generation who have never really understood the Gospel?
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that
all should come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9
Revival must come through God's Holy Spirit. But His people must really want it.
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14

Dec. 9,, 2016 - Dedra Shannon, a student at Texas' Patterson Middle School, put her Christmas poster up, featuring Linus, a scrawny tree and a
statement about the true meaning of Christmas from "A Charlie Brown Christmas":
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown,” Linus said.
Dedra's fellow-students and teachers appreciated the poster, but the principal told her to take it down or remove the religious content. At that point, the state's
Attorney General stepped in, reminding the administration of a 2013 “Merry Christmas” law that says no school official in Texas can silence a Biblical reference to Christmas.

an election" to drive us back to the Lord. He quotes Scripture:
“If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation
I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.
And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight
and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.” (Jeremiah 18:7-10)

[NewsBoys] lead singer, Michael Tait, described the film franchise to CBN News saying, "It's just a little spark in the dark [that] can light up the
whole scene. And 'God's Not Dead' was that little train that could."
