About the Book
Book Excerpt from the Prologue:
IT ALL BEGAN for us in 2005 as God brought us personally to our knees and through a time of great repentance, brokenness, cleansing, and purifying. It was during this time we surrendered everything and rededicated our lives fully to Christ and the call He originally had given us twenty years earlier in 1985.
We had been on staff of what some would consider a budding, hip, seeker-friendly church, as are many churches today. Everything looked great and successful on the outside, but we were dying spiritually on the inside. Our love for God had been replaced by the love of the world and the pride of life. We were in a backslidden, compromising, sinful state and completely unaware of our blind and sorrowful condition. Then one day God in His great mercy opened our eyes to see our dire spiritual condition, deception, and just how far we had fallen from our first love.
God transitioned us out of that church as the Holy Spirit began to do a powerful work and a deep cleansing in us. He drew us in very close to Him and into an extended season (over seven years) of prayer and fasting. It was during this span of time God gave us a tremendous burden for His church and our nation. It was there on our knees as we sought Him that He began to speak to us, and the message of this book was born.
At times we were overwhelmed by the serious nature of what was revealed and also brokenhearted as we began to see things through His eyes. Yet, in the midst of all this, He also gave us great hope and vision for His glorious church and for our nation. God made it clear that the deep work He was doing in us He was also preparing to do throughout His church and in our nation.
“God’s Answer….” Why Such an Audacious Title?
How Did God’s Answer Come?
BOOK EXCERPT: Seeking God’s Answer
Throughout biblical history we see that often when God’s people faced a crisis or battle, their leaders would inquire of the Lord and seek out His counsel. God always had the answer and gave them specific instructions that if carried out in obedience would always lead them to amazing and often miraculous victories. God has not changed His ways (Mal. 3:6)!
This is one of the key parts of 2 Chronicles 7:14 that seems to be often over-looked: “If My people [will]…seek My face” (emphasis added). As God’s people and leaders humble themselves, repent, pray, and seek Him—inquire of Him— God will present a solution, an answer for the nation. We believe He has done this. For it was during an extended season of prayer and fasting, that God revealed His instructions of how to bring a Great Awakening and turn America back to Him and greatly change our churches and our nation on multiple levels. God’s Answer changes everything!
