Avoid the ‘Wouldas’ and ‘Couldas’

Charisma tracked down a few veterans in the faith to give young people sage advice about faithfully standing the test of time. Go to mentors.charismamag.com and get advice to avoid your own "wouldas" and "couldas."


Embrace Change

One of the most important lessons for any leader to embrace is that change is constant, and change is our friend. God has ordained a life of change, for our entire lives. David wrote, "Because they do not change, therefore they fear not God" (Ps. 55:19). It is during times of change that we realize our need of God. read more

A Cry for Intimacy With God

I'm part of a generation that hungers to know God. We want a real relationship with Him—the kind that's filled with the laughter, tears and honesty even when it hurts. We want a relationship with God that isn't tampered with by artificial additives that promise to make it sweeter, sourer or tastier than it really is. We want an organic relationship with God.Why organic? read more

The Generational Elephant in the Room

Vision for 2020 Extended

American Church in Crisis
Rick Joyner
I've been told the same word for "crisis" in Chinese is also the same word for "opportunity." That may best describe the period we are entering-both crisis and opportunity.









One of the most remarkable verses in the Bible is Revelation 3:20, where we see the Lord standing outside the doors of His own church, knocking to see if anyone will hear Him and open to Him. During this age He won't enter where He isn't wanted, even in His own church. For the last few decades America has basically asked the Lord to leave every public place. In our public schools you can now use the f-word without impunity, but if you say the name of Christ (except as a curse), you can be expelled. The meltdown of American citizens' basic character has occurred, and studies show that in basic morality and integrity you can no longer distinguish between Christians and non-Christians. Without revival or another Great Awakening, America will not likely survive this decade as either a great nation or a free nation. read more
