Revival

Why would God send revival in the last days? In the Bible, He always gave believers an opportunity to repent, and he often allowed the worst of pagans the opportunity to repent as well (eg. Nineveh).

China fears superstition and religion will crush Marxism
June 22, 1999 - In a rare front page editorial, a warning was issued that superstition had been gaining ground over "the scientific world outlook of Marxism."
"We should be highly vigilant against superstition for it may confuse our thinking, undermine our fighting will, shake our beliefs and destroy our cohesiveness," the newspaper said. The commentary came less than a week after the central authorities issued an extraordinary public denial of rumours that China was preparing to spend £300 million securing the extradition of Li Hongzhi, the US-based leader of the Falun Gong self-healing sect.

The Ten Commandments Bill
June 18, 1999 - In this commentary by Joseph Farah he states:
The debate in Congress over an appropriate response to the senseless and brutal violence witnessed in Littleton, Colo., and elsewhere boils down to two basic viewpoints: One side would further restrict access to the tools used by the perpetrators; the other would try to hold back the tide of decadence and immorality roaring in from the popular culture and a state that has arrogantly placed itself above God.
He then prints the powerful testimony before Congress of Rachel Scott's father who accused them of allowing the errosion of moral values. Scott said, "My daughter's death will not be in vain. The young people of this country will not allow that to happen."

Christian Curriculum in Hungarian Schools
May, 1999 - This month's letter from Campus Crusade for Christ includes this exciting information:
Concerned about the decline of morals in their nation, the Hungarian government passed into law a mandate to bring Jesus Christ into the schools. As no curriculum exists for such a task, they have agreed to let Campus Crusade for Christ develop a curriculum, come into their public schools, and teach their youth about our Lord and Savior.
This new national thrust requires that every child, by 16 years of age, learn the meaning of words like Redeemer, Messiah, Mary and Joseph, Calvary, and Jesus. They must also learn about the life of Christ, the origin of Christianity, and three Bible stories.

15,000 become Christians every day in India
April 15, 1999 - Despite persecution, hundreds of new churches are being planted by many evangelical groups, and thousands of Hindus and Muslims are turning to Christ.
...Prayer and a new missionary zeal are behind the success, Anderson said.

But the prayers of Christians worldwide have given the Indian church more boldness, he said. "Now, because the Spirit of God is moving, people are willing to sacrifice -- you have to be willing to sacrifice your very life -- and we are sending more native and local missionaries there."

Albania's evangelicals rush to aid Kosovo's refugees
April 13, 1999 - Every one of the 160 evangelical churches in Albania have dropped their agendas and have taken leadership in helping the war refugees from Kosovo.
"This is the moment for the Albanian church to be salt and light to the nation," Begu said. The church is small and young, but it still has a role to play in demonstrating Christís love. "In a time when our nation goes through very difficult times we want to show that we are people that care for our country and its future." The formerly communist country severely persecuted Christians; evangelical groups began working there only in 1991.
...Albanian Christians have been praying for Kosovo since last year. The Muslim-dominated enclave is a mission field, Begu said. "We have never had the opportunity to go to them. Now the Lord is using this situation to bring them to us. Our goal is not to take advantage of this situation and go hit their heads with the gospel. We recognize that we can show the gospel by serving them, caring for them, listening to them, and living the gospel in front of their eyes."

Revival Impacts Public High School
Jan. 1, 1999 - More than 300 high school students from varied ethnic backgrounds have become Christians in the past few months at a Southern California high school.

According to Eastridge, the phenomenon is the result of prayer by many people for several years. The student catalyst for the revival was -
a "backslidden Christian" whom Eastridge taught in his class attended a meeting and "broke down and confessed sins and repented." The student, an average, nondescript kind of person, "turned into an evangelistic fireball and started witnessing."
