California is a mess and I sense God is moving Heaven and earth to turn that great state around.
Liberal policies declare California a ‘sanctuary state’. Sanctuary for whom? Consider the case of illegal alien Luis Bracamontes who admits to killing two deputies in 2014. In court before a judge, he recently pledged to break out of prison and kill even more. Read more via this link: http://cbsloc.al/2DGD5Dn
Socialist policies have made the state a wasteland of homelessness. The homeless include groups of mentally ill people, unemployed workers, young adults seeking fame and fortune in Hollywood, and university students.

Progressive (godless) California leaders have sown the wind and they shall surely reap the whirlwind.
So, what’s next?
What I call warm-and-fuzzy folks point to 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” That’s all it takes. Right? Wrong. Read this promise in context, starting with the preceding verse 13: ““When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
The message is this: God uses life-threatening disasters to capture the attention of his children in order to turn them to Him.
At present, the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un threatens to launch nuclear bombs carried by intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). Wildfires, floods, eight active volcanoes, and the collision of tectonic plates pose life-threatening dangers.
It’s entirely possible that spiritual revival could erupt any moment now, but it seems more probable God will use a natural disaster to move his people to their knees.
How do I pray for Californians? I plead for a replay of the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Movement. I ask God to remember the Christian minority and to be merciful for their sakes. Will you join me?
