LET’S START A BIBLE REVIVAL IN 2020

Heavenly Father, we pray for a Bible revival in 2020. We pray Your word will be not only be in peoples hearts, but on their lips as they read and digest what Your word has to say.

The Year of the Bible is underway as missions organizations, churches and other ministries are seeking to usher in a grassroots “Bible revival.” One evangelist believes many, including Christians, have yet to learn to love the Word of God.

OVER 1000 PRAY FOR AMERICA BIBLES WERE MAILED BY IFA TO INTERCESSORS IN DECEMBER. HAVE YOU BEEN READING THE BIBLE DAILY FOR THE FIRST TIME? LEAVE A COMMENT–LET US KNOW HOW GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU.

“I just think we’ve taught a generation how to love good preaching and how to love good worship, but we’ve never learned how to love the Bible,” said Nick Hall, who some have referred to as the “Billy Graham of the next generation.”

“I think in a lot of our churches and ministries, the majority of the people just aren’t reading the Bible for themselves. And so as biblical literacy has gone down, it has had a domino effect on a million things in our church and in our culture. We find that when people read the Bible more, they love their neighbors more, they’re more involved in compassion and justice initiatives and they’re more involved in evangelism.”

The Year of the Bible movement was established by a coalition of international ministry networks called The Table Coalition, formerly known as the Mission America Coalition. It hopes to be the largest digital next-generation biblical marketing campaign in history. The aim of the movement is to inspire people to make 2020 the year they make the Bible a “foundational part of their lives.”

“It’s one of those deals where a lot of us have these understandings that the Bible is boring or the Bible is judgmental or the Bible is archaic,” Hall told The Christian Post. “We just want to help people see that there’s a different narrative.”

The goal, he said, is to inspire as many people as possible to dedicate their year to God’s word and listen to what He has to say in their life.

As the movement aims to end Bible poverty worldwide, one of the problems in Western cultures today, organizers say, is that the Bible is becoming less significant as more children are growing up without exposure to the Gospel or a biblical worldview.

Barna research suggests that while almost half of Americans identify as Christian, only a small fraction of Americans hold a biblical worldview.

Hall explained that the aim is to inspire people to form a biblical foundation for themselves at a time in history when it is “so easy to be led by feelings and emotion.” He said it is important for the next generation to be “anchored on the rock and not on the shifting sands of culture.”

“The story of King Josiah has kind of been our biblical framework,” Hall, the founder of PULSE and the visionary behind the Together ecumenical Christian events, said.

“We just see that in that passage and in that time in the history of Israel, they had lost God’s Word. For an entire generation, people didn’t have the Word of God. And then there was this discovery of this ancient book and then it brought them to repentance. And then there was this mass [of people] coming back to the word and reading it in public.  And the public reading of Scripture is a big part of this.”

So far, entire denominations such as the Assemblies of God have declared 2020 as the “Year of the Bible.” Additionally, some churches are planning to read through the entire Bible in one year through reading plans.

“We really see that a big problem that’s happened in the Church is that we have really started to turn to a lot of secondary sources instead of looking to the main thing,” Hall said. “And so we just want to kind of drive this conversation that there’s something better than hearing somebody talk about God. And that’s hearing from God for yourself.”

According to Hall, several youth organizations are rallying around the effort, including InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.

In June, thousands of Christians will gather at the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to read the Bible and worship at Together 2020, an event that will feature some of the day’s most well-known Christian leaders and musicians.

Hall said that the entire day will be a “tribute to the Bible” as each speaker has agreed to dedicate half of their remarks to extended readings of Scripture.

“It’s a ton of just reading the Bible and really showcasing for a generation that this word is worth basing your life upon,” he said.

In addition to the sermons and performances, Together 2020 will feature three hours of a public reading of Scripture from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“I would just say what we’re praying for and what we’re seeing is a Bible revival,” he said.

Plans are in the works to hold about 10 or more “Let It Speak” summits for Christian leaders, most of which will be held in the U.S. A few will likely be hosted internationally. The summits will allow Christian leaders to discuss how to improve Scripture engagement in their churches.

So far, a “Let It Speak” Summit is scheduled for March 4 at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. Hall said that they plan to hold summits in Los Angeles, Pheonix, New York, Kansas City and somewhere in the northwest. . .

  1. Yes I read the Bible every day. and try to put the Lord’s word in my daily life for I know I’m a sinner and repent every day of my sins. and thank the Lord and Bless him each and every day.

  2. For ladies (and men) interested in a weekly online bible study, take a look at comegrowwithmeonline.com. Francine Perry is a spirit filled lady with a very interesting bio. I know her personally.

  3. This is such a confirmation. I’m living in a Retirement Community in Reno NV and just started reading a “Chapter a Day” group / Book by Book, with good response! It’s great to know we’re in that flow from God for this year!!!!

  4. Though I have read the Bible through cover to cover several times, I have never read it in one year. So I requested the IFA Pray for America Bible and have been faithfully reading and praying every day. I have never read much of the NLT and am enjoying the easy readability. The words are different so I don’t pass over them but focus on what is being said. Very appreciative of this opportunity.

  5. This is a very important post. I agree completely with this one. My mother goes to a large church with all the modern bells and whistles- coffee shop, smoke machines, etc. She volunteered as a door greeter to the children’s area. She noticed that none of the children, in that large church, brought Bibles. So she started bringing in a basket of candy and told kids they could take a piece of candy if they brought their Bible with them to church. Of the hundreds of children who went through the main door where she greeted, most of them said they did not even own a Bible. But the candy excited the children so much that not only did the kids start buying Bibles, the parents started buying Bibles for themselves. It has been remarkable to hear how many people now have purchased a Bible just because my mother got them interested. That is some good news in a world filled with people who have turned away from God and from Bible reading.

  6. I am so grateful for the ministry of IFA. It has given me an organized way to pray for the needs of my nation and for our political system and leaders. The news is timely and gives me a “jumping-off place” for prayer for the issues our country faces.

    I am one of the over 1000 who received a PRAY FOR AMERICA Bile, and so far, I have been faithful in reading it. It’s been a few years since I’ve read the Bible through in a year, and I’m looking forward to how the Lord uses this commitment in my life. I’m enjoying the New Living Translation which I had never read before.

    God is speaking to me regularly through the readings, just this morning, the reading from Proverbs 6:12-15 made me think of those in our government who are seeking to destroy our President – a man who stands for life and for the Nation of Israel.

    12 What are worthless and wicked people like?
    They are constant liars,
    13 signaling their deceit with a wink of the eye,
    a nudge of the foot, or the wiggle of fingers.
    14 Their perverted hearts plot evil,
    and they constantly stir up trouble.
    15 But they will be destroyed suddenly,
    broken in an instant beyond all hope of healing.

    Thanks you again to all of you who work so hard to make this ministry available

  7. Although I have read all of the Bible many times, last year for the first time in my life I successfully committed to reading through the Bible in one year. I have been a committed Christian for over 40 years, but I have to say that getting that daily dose of God’s Word was the life changing for me. I am doing the same thing again this year because now I cannot imagine going a day without reading His Word. The Word of God is a life giving, life changing truth bomb. I know Christians who sincerely believe the Bible is not relevant for today–they are so wrong. The Bible is cure for all that ails mankind and I challenge anyone who doubts that to commit to reading through the Bible in one year and see for yourself how it will change your life.
