Hope for the Future

Before its foundation America first flew the Appeal to Heaven flag. It was the banner George Washington used on his navy ships to signal that their only hope against British rule and religious persecution was an appeal to heaven. The crusade continues today.

Indeed, pockets of revival are breaking out under the appeal to heaven banner across the nation. Some are expecting the next great move of God to emerge under this banner that pictures an evergreen tree on a white flag with the words “An Appeal to Heaven” across the top.

“Our nation is in crisis. It has grown darker over the past six years. It will continue growing darker until we turn back to God as a nation. The good news is when we do, we’ll see a Great Awakening and many souls will come into the kingdom,” says Jennifer LeClaire, senior editor at Charisma magazine, contributor to BarbWire and author of The Next Great Move of God: An Appeal to Heaven for Spiritual Awakening. “I’m blowing the trumpet. I’m sounding the alarm. There is hope for America, and that hope lies in the body of Christ rising up to do as Jesus commanded: Occupy until I come.”

I want to encourage you to pick up The Next Great Move of God. LeClaire has become a rising prophetic voice for revival in America. The wisdom she’s been given by the Holy Spirit and the vision she has for God’s move in America is something to which every Christian should pay notice. Jennifer is a fearless voice for Christ’s truth, in love, and has earned my tremendous respect in the years we have known each other.

“Sparked in part by a revelation Dutch Sheets received over the course of 12 years,” notes LeClaire, “the nation is being called back to prayer for a Third Great Awakening.” Through in-depth interviews, eye-witness accounts, transcribed speeches, and prophetic visions from noted leaders such as Billy Graham, Reinhard Bonnke, the late Steve Hill, and others, LeClaire’s The Next Great Move of God serves as a means to not only fan the fires of revival unto this awakening but also equip you to sustain it.

“For every prophecy about judgment on America, there seems to be another prophecy about a revival, renewal or awakening. The Lord has spoken to me—and many others—about another Great Awakening,” says LeClaire. “He told me it would grow darker before the light shines brightly in this nation again. It has indeed grown darker. I believe it will grow darker still, but the darkness will not overpower the light. I see an emerging move of God—the next great move of God; a Third Great Awakening.”

To that I say, Amen.
