This is a generation of hopelessness like never before. There is a flood of entertainment that leaves people feeling stale like no other time. Even the depression years and war years didn’t feed into hopelessness like this generation.
Stand in the gap. Face the hopelessness and declare a personal message from Jesus, ‘My rule is here’. Declare hope to the hopeless.
I declare <enter your city name here> as a city of hope! Raise up a generation to declare hope to the hopeless, like never before!
Jerusalem at the time of Jesus’ birth was a city without hope. The faith level was so low that Zacharias the priest couldn’t even receive a message from an angel. So God sends JB (John the Baptist) to announce a message of hope. But they had to respond to the message they heard. You have to change!
A message of hope is not something you just wait for. It is something you prepare for by changing your actions to be in line with the message.
