NOTE from ANDREW: The Bible declares in both Joel and Acts that in the Last Days, God’s Spirit will be poured out upon “all flesh”. And yet many today say there is “no hope” for the church in the Last Days – and that it is “only apostasy” that can be expected. Below is what David Wilkerson wrote on this topic before he died…
THE LAST-DAY CHURCH
-extracts by David Wilkerson.
The church in America is far from what God envisioned it to be. For
the most part, entire denominations today operate without the Holy
Spirit. They are devoid of the presence of Jesus and bankrupt of all

heaven, hell, repentance and judgment.
