This Is The Awakening… by Randolph Jason for Gospel News Network
An ongoing theme for 2019, at least on these two associated websites, has been the “essence of collapse“. There have been several articles produced around the idea of economic and financial collapse only being the symptoms of a much larger, far deeper societal problems. If we simply open our eyes and unclog our ears we will see and hear what is actually happening around us.
Youth suicide exploding by 56% over the past ten years, people graduating from high school unable to read, write and do basic math, loneliness gripping our society in ways no one ever thought possible, suicide by military personal to the tune of 22 per day. This is to say nothing of the global war on Christianity and conservative values. Without a solid foundation of love, faith and hope all the other items, naturally, begin filling the void.
This list of horrors should get the attention of very family in this country. Unfortunately, the family too, has suffered a devastating blow beginning in the 1960’s. The nuclear family has been ripped to shreds and now something of an anomaly in the western world. Women, in particular, have been convinced that men are no longer necessary and their career is more important than having children. This is a lie. A significant percentage of women in their late 30′ and 40’s are discovering that having children might be a good idea and having a man, not a “partner”, in their life may be more fulfilling than the lie they bought in their 20’s.
There is some really awesome news on the horizon. There seems to be shift happening at every age level throughout America. You wouldn’t know this by listening to most of the corporate and some prominent alternative media sources. If you listen to the “polls” and “statistics”, well, they both paint a fairly hopeless picture – nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus Christ is alive and well. The Christian church, as we have documented, is growing and growing – it is not falling. The church I attend is growing. Christian music is growing in popularity. There is a shift happening at the church and Dr. Michael Brown does an excellent job of explaining why the polls and statistics have it wrong and are not only asking the wrong question the pollsters are looking at the wrong data.
The liberal church with it’s liberal, nonChristian agenda, the more traditional church and churches that ignore the supernatural teachings of Jesus Christ are absolutely dying. Churches that bring Jesus Christ to life, openly discuss supernatural healing and supernatural life are growing like no one ever expected. This foundation of Christianity is fueling another fire that is being seen around the world – people are standing up and pushing back against the people in power that are attempting to completely change our world.
The election of Donald Trump, BREXIT and the election of Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro all signal a massive change from the status quo of liberal, nonChristian values. Salvini, which is not out of the Italian political picture, was making serious waves in Italy until the corrupt to the core European bureaucrats stepped in and squashed his momentum. Salvini is currently rebuilding and the Lega Party is on it’s way to being in charge of Italy bringing home another country to Christian, conservative values.
While this information is not intended to be political, politics are important as this is how neighborhoods, communities, states and nations change. It begins with a small number of people that band together and speak with one voice. In this case, that voice is the Holy Spirit speaking through all of us. We pray for guidance and pray for the Holy Spirit to fill our souls, soften our hearts and bring forth the Light of Jesus Christ – the Holy Spirit obliges and families change. This is not only seen by others it is repeated by others and the next thing you know change is taking root; Jesus is now entered the lives of many.
This is what is happening with the Christian church. We don’t have to fight as we see our liberal friends fighting. We don’t have to take up arms and beat people into belief, besides it doesn’t work. No. Jesus is a radical. Jesus teaches us to become radical and to love another person until they love themselves. When this happens lives are permanently changed.
I beg you please do not listen to me. Put your ear to the ground and listen to the ground swell happening all around you. Listen to the voices crying in the wilderness. Listen to the Holy Spirit bringing about radical change in our lives, in our community and all around the world.
“God is using me as a human being — as humbly as I can put it — He’s using me to show off,” West believes. “Last year, I made $115 million and still ended up $35 million in debt. This year, I looked up and I just got $68 million returned to me on my tax returns,” he explained. “People need to hear someone that had been put into debt by the system talk about these kind of numbers now that they’re in service to Christ.”
“People who don’t believe are walking dead,” he declared. “They are asleep and this is the awakening.”
The rapper also discussed his family life, saying that while “people thought it would be uncool to be married,” in reality his marriage to Kim Kardashian is “heavenly” and “magnificent.” The father of four added that he hopes to ultimately have seven kids, because “the richest thing that you can have is as many children as possible,” said West.

When someone with a platform the size of Kanye West begins speaking about Jesus Christ people are, almost, forced to listen. People may or may not take him seriously, but they do have to listen. When Lauren Daigle appears on a late night corporate media talk show to bring back Jesus Christ to family rooms all across the land people have to listen. These are massive signs of change. We need to embrace them and take them to the next level. In doing so, we spread the gospel, heal lives and bring Jesus Christ to life.
