“There are many signs that the hearts of Americans are turning back to God.”

—Diane Hamilton

REFRESHED AND IMPRESSED

The January issue was one of the most well-written I’ve seen in months, with refreshing articles of preparation for 2012. We’re grateful for the information!

AMERICA’S REPENTANCE

Regarding “2012: America’s Final Warning?” (by Jonathan Cahn, January), God is waking up His sleeping body everywhere, and I pray we awaken to His call quickly and decisively. He tests us to strengthen us, but our response to His testing is critical. The Word is clear: He’s counting on us to do the greater works.

Rabbi Cahn is showing us how and why America is falling and how it relates to Israel’s fall in the past, through Scripture and our own history as a nation. People better wake up and repent or we’re next to have our country taken over.

Linda Alvarez, Tacoma, Wash.

 

I respectfully disagree with Rabbi Cahn, primarily that America has been “defiant” toward God and unrepentant. Thousands of intercessors have been faithfully repenting on our nation’s behalf. Many groups have established prayer, praise and repentance on a broad level, such as TheCall, IHOP-KC and Jesus Culture. Yes, God calls us to repentance. But there are many signs that the hearts of Americans are turning back to God.

Title Obsession

Lee Grady, thank you for your boldness in “A Word for the Grand Poobah” (January). That word was long overdue and much needed. I pray that we will seriously embrace the concerns of Jesus about not taking titles for ourselves. Watchman Nee said it so well: ”I want nothing for myself; I want everything for the Lord.”

Charles Schmitt, via email

 

Lee Grady’s commentary on people’s obsession with titles  was right on. But it goes beyond “apostle” and “bishop”—most notably those who insist on being called “doctor” because they’ve received an honorary doctorate. Isn’t it enough to minister under God’s anointing?
