The Drudge Report on Monday afternoon linked to a story on Worldnet Daily’s website about my new book, Implosion. The headline of the WND article is: “‘Modern Day Nostradamus’ warns of U.S. doom.” The article is the most in-depth look at Implosion published thus far. It examines just how serious the risks of an American collapse really are, and whether the U.S. is facing doom or the possbility of a spiritual renaissance involving millions of people repenting of their sins and turning to faith in Jesus Christ.
“Rosenberg looks at historic lessons from the remarkable and sweeping Christian revivals known as the First Great Awakening of the early 1700s and the Second Great Awakening of the early 1800s and considers the possibility of a Third Great Awakening today,” notes the article. “Rosenberg says the U.S. has experienced two great spiritual revivals in the past and it could experience another. Rosenberg bases this belief on 2 Chronicles 7:14: ‘If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.’ That’s what God told the ancient Hebrews, Rosenberg says. While it’s not a promise for the U.S. or other nations, Rosenberg says he believes it sets forth a biblical principle. ‘The history of Israel in the Bible gives us an understanding of how God operates,’ Rosenberg says. ‘Let me put it this way. God is not a vending machine where if you put in enough prayer quarters we get a Reese’s Pieces bag that pops out. If we pray, fast and humble ourselves, it doesn’t mean God is obligated to give us a massive spiritual revival to save America because maybe we’ve passed that point. But we can be sure if we don’t pray, fast, humble ourselves and changed our wicked ways, then we definitely can’t expect God to give us a massive revival.’”
The article also raises the question of whether the United States is mentioned in End Times Bible prophecy. While the headline isn’t one I would have picked — I don’t consider myself a modern Nostradamus; that moniker came from a U.S. News & World Report about me back in 2003 — I would commend the article to those of you interested in the book.
