Breaking the Unsaved People Barrier
INTRODUCTION: As leaders and ministers of the gospel, our aim is to share the whole gospel with the whole world. Our goal is that every person is presented with the gospel before he or she dies. This year in the United States, over 2.4 million people will die, the majority of them without ever knowing Christ. There are over 313 million people in the U.S. According to research, about half of those 313 million people are unsaved.
We have all been praying, fasting, and begging for revival. Some have had a taste, others a drink, maybe some a real authentic full river revival. Every revival in the history of the modern world has been grounded in an explosion of prayer and evangelism. As the Holy Spirit continues to reshape the church, we find ourselves journeying through different phases of changes and different levels of crisis.

1 John 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
2 Timothy 2:26 And that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
