Jesus said - in Matthew 4:17 - that we need to repent - turn and re-focus our attention on Him in this last great season before His return. He says His Kingdom is literally pursuing us; all we need to do to find Him is turn and let Him catch us. He says this repentance is the greatest privilege ever offered.
Author James A. Wilson is a co-director of America's National Day of Repentance and the leader of PrayNorthState, a California ministry of repentance, reconciliation, and gathering. His blog reaches some four hundred thousand readers. His vision for a California Day of Repentance was spearheaded by his prayer teams in more than thirty California counties and his writing. The Day became a rolling reality that encompassed five west coast states (including British Columbia in Canada) and led to fruit ranging from thousands of decisions for Christ to the ending of drought in California. This book is a collection of the best of his blog postings over the past five years. They are arranged in chapters reflecting topics from Confronting Culture, Church, and Society to Authentic Science versus the Religion of Scientism to Waking to the Awakening. It is a fun read that - he hopes - stirs readers to turn into His pursuing arms.
Faith in an unseen God seemed illogical to James Wilson, until one fateful night when he experienced a vision from God and felt the pull to confront this God others talked about. The more he pursued knowledge of Jesus, the more he felt God's pursuit of him and encouragement to give God his all. Such revelation prompted the creation of his new book, Kingdom in Pursuit, a collection of essays that define the responsibilities of Christians as they are selected by the Lord to stand tall on faith and proclaim the gospel to others. James discusses the spiritual transformation that occurs once people receive Jesus Christ into their lives and present a sacrifice of repentance to Father God. The topics of the essays range from politics to debunking science beliefs to discussing the Great Awakening; all to aid believers in acknowledging God before men and humbly seeking Him in earnest.
James Wilson has served the Kingdom of God over four decades as educator, pastor, and founder/president of international parachurch ministry PrayNorthState. He envisioned and helped organize Bible Breakthroughs in multiple American states and nations - including Australia - and God gave him vision to organize and lead the first retreat for California legislators. His vision for a California Day of Repentance spanned four states and Canada's British Columbia. It resulted - by God's grace - in cultural shifts with pragmatic impact. He has a special heart for ethnic reconciliation and has delivered plenary addresses to multiple World Christian Gatherings on Indigenous Peoples, but his heart is to engage encouraging relationships with indigenous and immigrant leaders. His blog reaches some four hundred thousand readers. He believes the last Great Awakening is just beginning alongside the End Times Tribulation. He is married to Jillian and is the father of three children.
