Urgency, holy zeal with a good type of fear of God, proper passion with a laser focus on Christ. So SO needed. So little time, so few laborers, so many in the harvest fields and the valley of decision. What will you do?

Do you like to ask the Lord of all the Universe what your part is in helping to bring closure on the Great Commission? Are you strong spiritually and close to the Lord, so His heart-beat and passion are rubbing off on you.. to the point where His love is constraining you? It's time to be controlled by the Holy Spirit every moment. 

I want to implore and encourage you to keep hittin' it to your knees until you hear from God.. 'til you break through and see God move.. 'til you just wanna get up and go out as a new man or a new woman with fire burning down deep on the inside.. and spread that fire if you will. 

You know how too many in our day serve the Lord with such a mediocre, passe, goin'-through-the-motions, been-there-done-that-kinda-attitude. And yes you indeed know that such a ho-hum sort of mentality and way ain't going to cut it.. according to what we've been called to do. Let's be done with that, and intentionally re-fall-in-love with our First Love who really cares about the lost ..across the sea and across your street. This is the time to become red-hot on fire for Christ.  This is the time to hang out with and help those who are red-hot and balanced in Jesus.    

That type of "pull out all the stops seeking of Jesus" in worship etc... is indeed a good thing for our day at this stage of the game so to speak. It's later than it's ever been before. 

You know what I mean. It's really no game. Some say, "Kurt, Jesus Freaks have been talkin' about this 'catching away' of the saints to heaven since the early 70s, but where in the world is He? We're still waiting" But I say check out the signs and super-signs in light of the Scriptures. Israel is and has been a nation again when that looked like it would never happen. Check out the other fulfilled prophecies. I say Look around you, it's by far a new and different day with greater needs globally, with people getting more desperate in a volatile economy. Look at Greece. That's where we could soon be. Look at how all types of fornication and perversion have become the media-defended norm, look at how open sin as a lifestyle is obviously more rampant than ever before. We are all the closer to that time of being raptured out of here, but that doesn't mean set a date or do nothing. Hey, what we do or have been planning to do in the Spirit for Christ, we must do it now. 

Last days urgency follows upon the heals of last days fervency in seeking the heart and mind of the One who sends people to reap.. I mean seekin' Christ like ur life and the life of others depends upon it. It does. Yes, do gain urgency in wisely declaring the Gospel, in passionately explaining It with patience, in clearly persuading people ..for decisions. We are not here to be marked by that lukewarm or worldly maintaining of the status quo in the name of Christianity. Let repentance begin with us, and then let's get on with it.  

"Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." 5/16jam. nkjv 

We see.. a unique occasion to reemphasize the urgency of taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth. This year can serve as a milestone to mark the advance of the Gospel as a focal point for intensified evangelistic work ..a transition to a new century of missionary outreach. ~ GCOWE Declaration

"I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house." 42/6,7isa. 

Surely you can see how we are living during a time of unprecedented opportunities (not to mention technologically with tools that can help get our Message out farther and farther..). Yes along with larger numbers of desperate people waiting for the Church to actually be the Church, we are in our last days. There are a lot of great avenues where you can serve (choose to be active in finding out what God is doing here on this sin-cursed planet and then get involved with those who are already involved and being used of God to spread the Gospel), but if you still can't find out what exactly to do practically, then we can help you. Just join me and our my wonderful evangelistic friends, people of harvest if you will, who know and are perfecting what they are already doing for Christ in reaping (HarvestAmerica.com). Pray for and talk to your pastor.. and perhaps show him the H.A. promo video. Here's some more info for him if he would like to sign up. I really can't think of a better investment of your time, your talent, and your treasure if you choose to help us with this Nationwide One Day, One Church, One Message event. 

Let's pray together like we mean it, because hey.. we do mean it! We love our friends and loved ones too much to allow them to go to hell without a chance to turn as we have. They at H.A. have a great 20 plus year track record if you wanna check it out, and together we are expecting God to work. We are expecting that more will turn to Christ ..on August 26th, '12.. than have turned and been born again in any U.S. one time event before. It's exciting and I certainly feel excited about it - about Jesus.
