Why Does YWAM Founder Loren Cunningham Believe a Great Revival Is on Its Way?

Loren Cunningham points to a plaque at YWAM's University of the Nations, prophesying he saw "waves of young people from all the nations of the world going to share God's love to all the nations of the world."

Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), is one of the great Christian leaders of our generation.

I recorded a podcast with him yesterday and asked what he believes is happening spiritually in a morally decadent culture. He said the greatest revival in the history of mankind is coming and backs up what he says with history, explaining that something huge happens in God's calendar every 500 years.

This year marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Reformation.

With so many lives disrupted by natural disasters, terrorism and other crises, Cunningham believes millions will turn to Christ.

He says he sees the tide turning. It's well-known that in China, Christianity is growing faster than anywhere else in the world. Cunningham also said more people have come to Christ in the Middle East in the past two decades than in the past 1,000 years.

I hope you will listen to our interview, recorded as we drove around Kona, Hawaii, the home of YWAM's University of the Nations. I was there on vacation and was thrilled he would fit me into his busy schedule during the few hours our cruise ship was anchored there.

I will write later about what I saw and heard on my whirlwind trip to Kona, including Cunningham's vision to see at least a portion of the Bible translated into every language on Earth by 2020. I felt it important to share today what he says is happening spiritually from the vantage point of his contact with YWAMers around the world.

For those Christians who feel overwhelmed by what they see in today's society, Cunningham urges tenacity and endurance mixed with kindness. That's excellent advice.

Enjoy this podcast—even though it was recorded in the car. The excellent content offsets the less-than-optimal production quality. Please share it with others who will be encouraged by Cunningham's spiritual insight.
