The revolution has begun in Jackson, MS! I had the honor of ministering alongside (left to right): Allen Rice from the Minnesota Vikings, Paul Cole, President, Christian
Men's Network and PS. Dwayne Pickett from New Jerusalem church.
Young men and women all over this country are in bondage to an oppressive tyrant. This tyrant has told them that they will never amount to anything. The Tyrant has told them that in order to be an accepted part of the culture, they must embrace the societal norms of drug use, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, and whatever their friends and popular culture deem as acceptable behavior.
They are told that in order to be viable, they must be vulgar.
They are hurting, broken, empty, discouraged, and dying. Global suicide rates for youth ages 15 to 24 is 600,000 annually.
The good news is: A revolution is stirring! A revolution of righteousness. A restoration of the lost virtues of chivalry, honor, integrity and righteousness. The tide will turn as we launch a grass roots movement across the nation in every place where young people gather.
This month in Jackson, Mississippi we have launched the Men of Honor program into the Jackson public school system and the Mesquite, Texas public school system. In Jackson, where young black men are 3 times more likely to finish their G.E.D. in prison than graduate from college, they are being taught that "manhood and Christ-likeness are synonymous" and that "there is no greatness outside of God".
At the first introduction of the program in 7 Jackson middle schools, 1,075 young men indicated a desire to be part of the Men of Honor program!
What will this state look like when these young men graduate as Men of Honor? What will will the statistics reflect when young men grasp the fact that they are created in the image of God and have world-changing power on the inside of them. They will be prophetic and not pathetic!
The comprehensive and systematic strategy that we have been given by God has the power to change our schools, our communities, our states, our country and eventually the world. What we need now is God's people, the enablers of this great revolution to pray, support, and strengthen the movement. To sponsor these world changers through camp, provide life-changing curriculum, and give them an opportunity to change the world, give online today at www.themenofhonor.org.
Be encouraged! The tide is changing and the revolution is stirring. The Lord promised, "I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and daughters will prophesy!"
