How Spirit-Filled Christians Can Save America

Christian apathy has spread over the years, partially due to the fact that according to the Bible Jesus triumphantly returns and forever vanquishes sin and death.

Until that time however, there is much work to be done for the kingdom of heaven because Christians are seeing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a society that consciously removes God everywhere possible.

This is why author and founder of The Western Journal Floyd Brown wrote his newest book, "Counterpunch" to help reclaim the narrative in America.

If Christians are truly honest with themselves, they'll admit they are losing the culture war in America.

"This book 'Counterpunch' is really a handbook for our movement. To recapture the agenda on narrative. And also, for us to learn about the important strategies we need to pursue in order to push back and capture ground," explains Brown.

God is assuredly omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. Within the pages of the Bible He spells out very plainly His call for Christians to put their faith into action and take His gospel message about the saving knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ to all the world.

Do people think the Israelites would have been led by Moses to reach the Promised Land if he had not answered the call God had on his life and went to tell Pharaoh to let God's people go?

Would David have ever become king of Israel had he not stepped up to Goliath in honor and obedience to the Lord?

Do Christians around the world today think there is going to be any change made in society if they do not take up the call of the Great Commission and display the love of Christ to those still mired in sin?

When it comes to looking for a savior to change the status quo, nobody does this better than Christians, which is one area that Brown calls out in his book: "Why have we failed [to change the culture]? We're always looking for somebody, Newt Gingrich, Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump, to ride into Washington and save us from the top down," Brown bemoans.

"The book 'Counterpunch' is all about having Christians show up in the culture, in what Lance Wallnau calls 'The Seven Mountains.'...We can't win unless we're in the battle," he added.

Even when God won battles for Israel when they took the Promised Land, they had to get in formation and fight! God won the battle, but not while the Israelites were still in their camp sleeping.

God often uses unconventional humans to accomplish his goals. Gideon was no leader until God called him; David was a shepherd not a king; Ronald Reagan was an actor in Hollywood and Donald Trump was a playboy billionaire.

All them were used by God, yet once they left their positions of power, the people they had been in authority over often turned away from the Lord to live in sin.

Christians must understand that being a disciple of the one true King is a 24/7 commitment.

"We are commissioned by our Savior to go out into all the world and to speak truth to power. Every Christian needs to do it. Now," Brown says.

"The key is for Christians to occupy where they're at. Remember, Satan comes to bring chaos, to bring disunity, to bring hate. We come to bring love, we come to bring unity. And first we have to have unity within the church. Then we can bring unity to society through our love. It's all about love," Brown added.

So if you want to make a difference right in your own neighborhood and start the movement that will street by street, town by town and state by state radically transform the world by the love and power of Jesus Christ, get "Counterpunch" today and start making a difference in your community for the Lord.
