JD: David let’s get to the book “The Great Awakening is Coming”. What does it have to say about a future great awakening or a revival?
DJ: I would say that I was somewhat surprised by the book overall. It wasn’t what I expected. The ads on Fox News give the impression the book would be what’s in store for America but after reading the book that really all feels like marketing hype and is sort of a bate and switch.
Evans opens his book by saying, “God has given me a word that has shaken me to my knees.” “I picked up an old Bible and a handwritten note fell out it was from a meeting I had with Dr. David Wilkerson.” Wilkerson apparently told Evans the following, “I see a plague coming on the world and the bars and the churches and government will shut down, the plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken.” “The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit and out of it will come a third grade awakening that will sweep America and the world.
JD: What can we expect in a global great awakening? In other words is that in the scriptures?
DJ: Well the Bible doesn’t necessarily discuss everything that will happen in history between the first and second comings of Christ. But it does tell us what things would be like as we move deeper into the last days leading up to the Rapture in Daniel’s 70th week. For example in I Timothy 4 Paul said now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith giving he to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. The general global trend will likely be more toward conflict and apostasy then toward revival. We must continue to prepare people for the rapture and warn them of the judgment that’s going to be coming afterward.
JD: David James with his Bible in his hand comes with his review of a book now on bookshelves entitled “A Great Awakening is Coming”.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
David James warned us that the new book by Mike Evans uses the bait and switch method to get people to purchase this book. As David mentioned in his review there is no scripture to back up the fact of a great awakening coming to America and in fact the entire world. The apostle Paul warns us in I & II Timothy where he reveals the opposite is true. The church is heading towards doctrine of demons I Timothy 4:1 and denying the power of Godliness II Timothy 3:1-5. False teachers in the last days will pervert the truth of God’s word. This is in the future according to Jesus, Matthew 24:4, 5, 11, 24.
