Summary: The heart cry of God to the church today is to raise a new generation of born again Christians. This generation of Christians are like post- Joshua generation Christians who knew not the Lord.We need a brand new generation.
Judges 2:10-15 NIV
"After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. 12 They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord's anger 13 because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. 14 In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. 15 Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the Lord was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress."
The heart cry of God to the church today is to raise a new generation of born again Christians. Our current Christian generation is like the post Joshua generation described in verse 10 above - they do not know the Lord. Not that they are not going to church, seminars or conferences, they simply do not serve God as he should be served.
