Introducing Call2Fall 2013, Part 3

This call to fall on our knees before God is not an end in itself, but rather an opening for the Holy Spirit to move in a phenomenal way at a very critical time.  I believe the answers we are seeking will then begin to flow freely. I shared these thoughts with FRC’s Pastors Council; […]

Introducing Call2Fall 2013, Part 2

One Sunday morning in March, 2009, I was scheduled to preach at a large Calvary Chapel outside of Los Angeles.  I woke up early, about 4:00 am and began to pray not only for the four services that morning, but for the Lord to give me the answer to the questions I was being asked. […]

Introducing Call2Fall 2013, Part 1

Dear Pastors and Christian Friends, In introducing the Call2Fall Blog I want you to know just how the idea came about. As a two-term member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, a GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, and for five years, President of the Family Research Council, I have been actively involved in the sphere […]

The Hope

Joel now turns to the Hope we have in turning back to God (3:18-27).  God’s zeal to punish will be transformed into a zealous display of mercy, protection and provision.  The promise here is not only to end the destruction that is taking place, but restore what the “locust has eaten” (2:25).  This is a […]

The How

Joel moves on to “the how” of returning to the Lord.  Scripture bears witness to the fact that it is the humble who will experience the grace and mercy of God (Prov. 3:34; James 4:10; 1 Pet 5:5).  Joel calls for the people to humble themselves through a universal fast and sacred assembly on behalf […]

Joel: The Hurt, The Heart, The How, The Hope

The Heart: “Now therefore,” says the Lord, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”  So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm.  Joel […]

Joel: The Hurt, The Heart, The How, The Hope

The Hurt: The prophet Joel opens his discourse with the people by asking a rhetorical question that reveals the depth of the hurt the people were experiencing as a result of their rejection of God and His ways.  “Has anything like this [destruction] happened in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?”  […]

Great Multitude of Witnesses

I shared the idea about the “Call2Fall” with FRC’s Pastors Council; a group of leading pastors from across the country who have partnered with FRC to help us better serve the nation’s churches. I spoke with other leading pastors from various denominations. I spoke with long-time leaders in the intercessory prayer movement and with nationally […]

The Prescription

For weeks I have studied and meditated upon the book of Joel, which is 2 Chronicles 7:14 in book form.  There are certainly parallels to be made between what Joel describes and what America is facing today.  The chewing locust, the swarming locust, the swarming and crawling locust devoured the produce of the land leaving […]

Godly Lady and a Grand Patriot

The services that morning at the Calvary Chapel were a remarkable display of God’s grace. Over 50 people made professions of faith. After the 3rd or 4th service, an elderly African American woman came up to me and said “You have the message that the Church needs to hear. You have the answer to what […]
