“Loren Cunningham is the founder of Youth With a Mission (YWAM), an organization that has equipped and sent more than five million people on short-term mission trips. God called him to ministry at age 13, and later gave him the vision to call and equip waves of young people to wash up on every continent on earth to share the gospel message.” – Voice of the Martyrs
In the following podcast, Steve Strang interviews Loren Cunningham who speaks to the future and a coming spiritual revival the likes of which the world has never experienced.
Podcast: YWAM Founder Loren Cunningham Believes a Great Revival Is on Its Way
Whereas in times past, pastors, priests, evangelists, and leading Christians have been honored leaders in America, we are today reviled as homophobic, sexist, and hateful. 52 of the 55 signers of the U.S. Constitution were so honored. In today’s world, the unbelievers revile Vice President Pence because he will not dine alone with any woman other than his wife.
Around 1,960 years ago, the Apostle Paul, writing to Roman Christians, foretold present-day circumstances.
- The people become unthankful, foolish in their hearts, and reprobate (morally depraved and unprincipled)
- Professing to be wise, they become fools
- Cease to honor God
- Rampant homosexuality among men and women
“26 For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Persecution is not coming – it’s here now
Loren Cunningham says the keys to overcoming persecution as we move into this next global revival are Tenacity, Endurance, Kindness.
