Is It Too Late for America? posted by John Sorensen on Jun 03, 2021

Dear Friends,

A friend of mine sent me an article yesterday that caught my attention. The headline was from a famous American preacher who exclaimed, “It’s Too Late for America, We’re under Judgment.”

The sermon preached on Palm Sunday focused on the parable of the vineyard owner (Mark 12) and talked about judgement. He shared that every nation comes to the place where they cross a line of no return. He believes the United States has crossed that line.

I can’t fault his logic, his use of Scripture, or even his conclusion. But if he is right, we are helpless to do anything to reclaim America. Perhaps I’m too much an optimist, but I believe he is ignoring something important.

I wrote back to my friend, “It is crazy right now. But I take solace that we have been pretty far gone in this country before, and God, by His grace, has brought us back to Him through a sweeping revival. I’m praying for, and working for, such revival here in this country right now!

We, in the ministry of Evangelism Explosion, are pursuing exactly that. Two years ago, we started a project called Equip America. (3) Through training events across the country, we are taking pastors and key leaders out into the highways and byways to share Jesus with those who have yet to hear.

So far, we’ve traveled to 23 cities, and more than 1,000 pastors and lay leaders from more than 300 churches have come out to see if evangelism still works. As we’ve gone out, we’ve shared the Gospel with more than 1,073 people, and 287 have made a profession of faith for the first time. Praise the Lord!

Hundreds of pastors have shared that they were amazed that the Gospel still works. A few exclaimed to me personally, “You mean I could have been doing this for the past twenty years?”

Here’s the bottom line: if there is still hope for America, it will come through revival. And revival must come through the Church’s devotion to prayer and personal evangelism. These two key activities are what Equip America is all about.

Dr. D. James Kennedy, EE’s founder and first president, was also an extreme optimist. He always believed that one day the Church would wake up and begin to do what she was called to do. He pointed out that when that happens, “the ills of society will simply fade away like the dew before a rising sun!”

But for that to happen, every Christian must become a witness. For that to happen, pastors need to train them. And for that to happen, we have to hit the road, travel across our nation, and demonstrate that evangelism still works!

My friend, evangelism does work. It’s the only thing that ever has worked to change the hearts of men and women, boys and girls, in this nation or any other.

So here is the key question: What do you believe about America’s future? If you’re an optimist as I am, then join us in prayer for this Equip America movement. We hope to hold more than 24 events this year. In the years to come, we plan to visit every state in America, to pray for our nation and to share the Gospel with all who will listen. In the end, a pastor may decide not to pursue evangelism, but they won’t be able to say that it can’t be done.

Will you help us? We offer these Equip America events free of charge. But the truth is that they are not free (each one costs more than $10,000). If the Lord lays it on your heart to help make these events happen and work to bring revival to America, then join us! Maybe God is not done with America just yet!

May the Lord richly bless you as you serve Him.

Together in His service,
