Would you believe me if I told you that Christianity is seeing a massive global revival never before seen in this history of the church?
In the last few decades, people seem more willing to accept Christ than ever. This miracle is being witnessed every day all over the world and the sheer numbers may shock and astound you.
In Latin America alone, more than 34,000 believers are added to the church every day. They are receiving love and purpose and they are grasping it with all that they have.
Sadly, many of us in the United States don’t even realize that this is happening.
This is not necessarily our fault. The fact is, much of the mainstream media, Hollywood, and other sources of the content we see every day are owned and operated by secularists who do everything in their power to ignore what God is doing all over the world.
The secular culture that has gained power in America does not want you to know about the victories being achieved for His Kingdom, and our enemy, Satan, exploits that to keep you in the dark.
So much that is untrue is pushed upon us by media and other sources around us and we are so distracted by these things, that it is hard to see beyond them.
But at Christian Life Daily, our mission is to keep you informed and arm you with the TRUTH of what God is actually doing.
Here are the facts:
Take a look at South Korea. In 1900, there were no Protestant churches in South Korea. Today, there are over 7,000 churches in the capital of Seoul alone with 6 new churches opened up around the country every day.
These numbers are astounding. A country that had basically zero native Christians just over a hundred years ago is now 30% Christian. That kind of fruit is proof of the work of the Holy Spirit!
Jump on over to Africa, which has become the first continent where Christianity has gone from being a minority to a majority of the population in a single century. This means that in about 100 years, Africa went from having very few Christian believers to having more than 50% of their population turn to Christianity!
What’s even more inspiring is the growth of the church even in areas where it is extremely unsafe to become a follower of Jesus.
Islam has a large stronghold on Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Asia and the devout followers of Islam do not take kindly to Christianity. There is Christian persecution all over these parts of the world, so it might seem surprising that so many people are converting to Christianity despite the dangers.
But the fact remains that Muslims are giving up their religion to follow Christ in droves.
In a single summer in Mombasa, Kenya, 56,000 Muslims turned to Christianity. That is just a fraction of the over 2 million former African Muslims now living out the Christian faith, and only a fraction of a fraction of the over 10 million Muslim-to-Christian converts around the world.
In fact, there is a country in Asia that is dwarfing the continent of Africa when it comes to converts to Christianity.
Indonesia has seen the biggest turn-around from Islam to Christianity in the world with a whopping 6.5 million converts to the Christian Faith since 1960!
According to one source, this has a direct correlation with Muslim tyranny and violence in these areas. When people see the violence being carried out in the name of Islam, many times against their own people, their hearts see this false religion for what it is and they begin to search for something greater. Christ’s message of love and peace just makes more sense to people than a message of violence and legalism that nobody can possibly hope to follow perfectly.
The Spirit is calling all over the world.
Just look at the percentage growth of different religious groups per year and you will see this with more clarity. Christianity is at the top with a growth of 6.9% per year. No other religious group even comes close to that!
The non-religious group comes in second at 2.8%, Muslims third at 2.7%, followed by Hindus at 2.3%, Nominal Christians at 2.2%, and Buddhists at 1.7%.
That growth is amazing and could only be accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The number of people being offered the message of salvation each day comes to just over 260,000 and those who accept Christ averages out to around 174,000 per day.
The time of Jesus’ return looks nearer and nearer. The harvest is ripe and we must be the harvesters to bring the people to salvation. There are people all over the world whose hearts are ready to accept Jesus Christ, even in your communities.
I encourage you to search for them and share with them the strength and the conviction of your own Faith in Jesus. We are here to change the lives of the people around us.
Whether you feel called to be a missionary in a foreign country, or in your own neighborhood, there is plenty of work for all of us to do.
Christianity is reaching out to all corners of the world, just like the Bible said it would. The time is coming when every tongue will confess Jesus as Lord and we should be teaching others the truth that will set them free from sin and give them the ability to profess that Jesus is King.
