Holy Fire Publishing releases Urgency to Rise, a Call to the American Church, (Paperback, US$10.99, ISBN#978-1-60383-103-1). Strang calls professing Christians to examine their faith, understand their depravity apart from God, seek the Lord with all diligence, and put their faith into tangible action, because the "Urgency to Rise is upon us!"
Strang's Urgency to Rise, a Call to the American Church, admonishes preachers, teachers, deacons, bishops, priests, and the Pope, to tell people the truth about their natural state or be in violation of God's Word. Strang writes, "If you say you believe God's Word, and yet refuse to teach these things, you are a hypocrite. If you truly believe God's Word, then teach the deeper things of God to your people. Depravity does not go away with turning a blind eye, un-repentance, or disbelief. God's complete Word needs to be preached in the power of the Holy Spirit, so that dead hearts of stone can be busted open and exposed to the healing light of Jesus Christ. The light of Christ demands repentance. The Urgency to Rise is knocking on America's door."
Strang acknowledges that the last thing Christians need is another book to tell them how to "quick fix" their lives. Instead, Urgency to Rise calls Christians to spend time on their knees, time in God's Word, and time crying out to Him with an authentic desire to know Him. Strang writes, "Your choices are: Seek Him till you find him, or do nothing and accept eternal punishment. What will you do?"
"As I take a personal look at myself, I find some startling discoveries; and if I am willing to admit the truth to myself, then I find that I have fallen miserably short of the glory of God. I am startled to find that I am prideful, self centered, self-serving, sinful, deserving death, and not deserving of the sweet power of Grace that flowed from every drip of blood that Jesus willingly and painfully gave for my human failures and sinful rebellion. I have no one to blame but myself…The accountability starts with me. We need a revolution (of Christians) becoming intentional towards living out total victory in Christ Jesus."--Jeremy B. Strang
Strang's passion is for professing Christians to respond to God's calling and understand the deeper truths found in Jesus Christ. He warns that "American Christians will face physical persecution, and the imminent righteous judgment of God will be fulfilled." His desire is to "shock dead hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit into new life."
