Jesus is alive today: no blind faith required!

As Christians across the globe celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter, many people still view him as just another great moral teacher. Yet one thing sets him apart from all other religious leaders in history – he is the only one who has risen from the dead. Christians’ belief that Jesus is alive today is not blind faith but confident trust, backed up by historical facts! Just look at the evidence…

The Day of Prayer announced for 8 September is not really a National Day of Prayer for the simple reason that the government and monarch have not endorsed it.

Both Buckingham Palace and Lambeth Palace have turned down requests for a national day of prayer for several decades.

The Queen has been repeatedly asked to call for a national day of prayer like her father, King George VI did in the dark days of World War II.

One of the founders of the 1960s Festival of Light (which culminated in two large rallies in September 1971), the late Steve Stevens DFC, wrote regularly to the Queen to request that Her Majesty would call such a day as Head of the Church of England and Defender of the Faith.  Read More

Changing the cultural climate will require the boldness of a revivalist rather than a politician’s pragmatism

It is a year since Theresa May became Prime Minister after six years as Home Secretary.

In that year it does not seem as if anything has improved for Christians who stick their heads above the parapet by graciously refusing to bake a cake, offering to pray for a colleague or quoting the Bible in public (see the report on street preacher Mike Overd in HEART April/May 2017 called ‘Battle for the Bible’).

Vote in heaven’s name

3 April 2015 |

“A nation is righteous in God’s eyes because of its Church; when the Church walks in righteousness, there’s hope for the nation. As churches rise up and proclaim the Gospel, the nation will change and be righteous again.”

This is what one Sussex pastor said to his congregation this year, echoing the accepted wisdom among those who pray for revival. Read More
