Danger zone

Here in the United States we live like kings compared to millions in other lands. Our greatest danger is not even moral, bad as that is, but spiritual. Prophets, as I have said and written so often, are God's emergency men for crisis hours.
They thrive on perplexity, override adversity, defeat calamity, bring the new wine of the Kingdom to burst the withered wine skins of orthodoxy, and birth REVIVAL. Let no Christian's heart fail him because it seems like the enemy has come in like a flood, that the voice of the prophet is not heard in the land. God has His men hidden. They will come forth WITHOUT PRICE TAGS; with nothing to sell, nothing to propagate but "holiness unto the Lord." 
~ Leonard Ravenhill (1907-1994)
