Is Revival Coming to California?
By Troy Anderson, A Pulitzer Prize-Nominated Investigative Journalist
As the ‘Asbury Revival’ spreads nationwide, “Hope Fest” floods California with the love of Christ, revival breaks out at Point Loma University in San Diego and the movie Jesus Revolution is giving people hope for what evangelist Anne Graham Lotz calls the ‘last great awakening,’ Kathy J. Looper, a licensed marriage and family therapist and author of Redeem California: With God All Things are Possible, is calling on evangelical Christians to vote in far greater numbers and run for office to help turn things around not only in California but throughout the United States.
You prayed for God to forgive America during The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance, you’ve watched the Asbury Revival spread nationwide, you just saw the movie Jesus Revolution, now it's time to get involved and take action.
A new book, Redeem California: With God All Things are Possible, by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Kathy J. Looper, contains a realistic, strategic plan to help turn things around in California and America.

As revival spreads nationwide, and hope grows for another “Jesus Revolution”—what Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, says could be the "last great awakening"—Redeem California reveals that there are 8 million evangelical Christians in California, more than the population of 38 states, and yet just a small proportion usually vote.
In many elections in California, Republicans win about 10 counties and the election results in approximately 18 counties are quite close between Democrats and Republicans. If more Christians voted, California—with its 55 electoral votes in presidential races—and America could be completely different places.
The New York Times recently ran a story, conceding that it’s plausible for California to turn “purple,” and Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, aware of this, has toured California during past elections, encouraging more Christians to vote.
If we don't take action now—as the globalist elite are attempting to take away our freedoms and liberties (witness what happened during the pandemic with many churches shuttered and the acceleration of wokeism and the “cancel culture”), I believe we could essentially lose America, with the nation that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died for transformed into something completely different than we've ever known.
If America is subsumed into the elite's "Great Reset" plan, or what President Joe Biden recently described as the "new world order" that America must lead, the rest of the world will soon merge into a global technocratic state where people will have little if any freedoms and suffer economic and other forms of harm for not going along with the woke ideology of the globalist elite.
The book of Revelation predicts the rise of the Antichrist and False Prophet and a world government during the seven-year Tribulation period, but I believe the reason God didn't make the timing of these events explicit in Scripture is because He’s put the ball in our court.
If we stand up, pray, be bold and courageous, take action, and do our part in following God’s will, I believe that God will send, as Anne Graham Lotz says, one "last great awakening" before Jesus Christ’s return.
Billions of souls, especially those of our children and grandchildren, are hanging in the balance. God is looking to us, His followers, to step up to the plate at this critical time in history.
What’s happening today is not unlike what happened to Germany in the 1930s—as New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas has so eloquently written in his new book, Letter to the American Church—when Adolf Hitler was rising to power, ushering in World War II, the Holocaust and the deaths of tens of millions of people.
The #1 bestselling books I've coauthored with former nationally-syndicated radio show host Paul McGuire and retired U.S. Army Chaplain and Colonel David Giammona - The Babylon Code, Trumpocalypse, The Military Guide to Armageddon and The Military Guide to Disarming Deception—are filled with credible information, along with hundreds of interviews with the world's foremost experts in existential risk, military affairs, intelligence, economics and eschatology—warning of the dangers America is now facing.
With Russian President Vladimir Putin threatening the West with nuclear war, we could be on the precipice of World War III as well as the rise of the Antichrist and False Prophet and a world government. 1 John 4:3 says: “And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”
In each generation, the "spirit of the Antichrist" is present. This doesn’t mean that it’s inevitable that the Antichrist will arise in our time. Prior to World War II, many people thought Hitler was the Antichrist, and many of our grandfathers and others rose to the occasion, fought the Nazis and the Axis Powers, and repelled this demonic assault on the world, resulting in decades of freedom, liberty and prosperity.
“As California goes, so goes the nation” is a truism that has been tested over time in America. California, the nation’s most populous state with 39 million residents, has been the birthplace of the largest revivals in history, including the Azusa Street Revival in the early 1900s and the Jesus Movement in the 1960s and 70s, often described as the greatest spiritual awakening in American history. Collectively, these revivals brought hundreds of millions of people to faith in Christ worldwide.
With the Asbury Revival spreading nationwide, along with soaring rates of suicides, addiction, violence, homelessness, and hopelessness in California and across the country, it seems conditions are ripe for the “last great awakening”
In Redeem California, Looper, who holds a Masters in Psychology, Marriage & Family Therapy from Chapman University in Orange, California, issues a heralding call to Christians in California and America, offering a strategic plan of action to encourage believers to not only vote, but to run for elected office in our cities, counties, and state, as well as for Congress and even the presidency.
Without Christian’s being elected to office, state and federal policies, mandates, laws, and agendas will never change. The power and favor of God will make it happen if we pray and get involved.
The book is a call to action. It is an invitation to believe God for the impossible again and return to our most pure faith, that God is who He says He is, and He can do what seems impossible to us. Through practical and spiritual action, Christians can act now to be a part of God’s next move in the Golden State and throughout America and the world.

Prophecy Investigators’ Prayer for the Great Revival
Heavenly Father, We come before you with humble hearts, seeking a mighty revival in our midst. We know that you are the God of revival, and we believe in your power to transform lives and communities. We draw strength from your promises in your holy word, and we stand on your unchanging truth. Lord, we pray for a revival that begins in our hearts, that we may be renewed and refreshed by your Spirit. Your word reminds us in Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me." We ask that you cleanse us from all unrighteousness and fill us with your love and grace. We pray for a revival that spreads to our families and friends, that they may also come to know you and experience your salvation. Your word declares in Acts 16:31, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." We claim this promise for our loved ones and ask for their hearts to be turned towards you. We pray for a revival that impacts our churches and communities, that they may be transformed by your presence and power. Your word encourages us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." We repent of our sins and ask for your forgiveness and healing in our land. We pray for a revival that reaches the lost and broken, that they may find hope and redemption in you. Your word promises in Romans 10:13, "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." We ask that you draw those who are far from you to yourself and reveal your love and grace to them. Lord, we trust in your faithfulness and power to bring about revival. We wait in expectation for your move among us. May your Holy Spirit move mightily, transforming lives, healing hearts, and renewing communities for your glory. In the precious name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
