Voice of Revolution is the online magazine of the ministry of Dr. Michael Brown, devoted to helping equip, strengthen, and mobilize a Jesus-people in the earth today: a people devoted to the teachings and character of the Son of God, a people committed to being like Him as well as to doing His will, a people who take God’s Word seriously and feel a holy calling to make their lives count for the Master, a people who believe that as the salt of the earth and the light of the world, we can make a difference. And far from feeling that this is a special or elitist calling, we believe that this is the sacred privilege of every child of God – in denominations, in house churches, in fellowships of all kinds around the world. All those who truly know the Lord are called to live countercultural lives and to be ambassadors of His kingdom.

We believe that it is time for God’s people to take hold of His revolutionary purposes on the earth today. As one socialist said in the 1920’s, “We socialists would have nothing to do if you Christians had continued the revolution begun by Jesus.”

As followers of Jesus, then, we renounce self-will, anger, hatred, violence, carnal force, rebellion, judgmentalism, and intimidation – all the characteristics of worldly revolutions – and we embrace the cross, self-denial, sacrifice, purity, justice, the power of the Spirit, and unfailing love – the characteristics of the Jesus-kind of revolution. (For more on this, see the Jesus Manifesto.)

In keeping with this vision, the Voice of Revolution has three main goals:

  • Educate! Our online magazine provides timely and relevant information that will expand your knowledge of God and help give you a kingdom perspective on what is happening in our culture. We need to be like the sons of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do (see 2 Chr 12:32).
  • Encourage! We want to infuse you with courage, purpose, and vision so that each of you can fulfill God’s mandate for your life. It is true that we are in a battle with the flesh, the world, and the devil, but it is also gloriously true that in Jesus, we are more than conquerors (see John 16:22; Rom 8:31-39).
  • Enlist! The needs are great and the workers are few, but everyone of you can make your life count in a significant way. God has no superstars, only “ordinary” believers who make themselves fully available to Him. We gave ourselves to sin and self in the past, now let’s give ourselves to God and join forces for His honor and for the good of this world (see Rom 6:13-23; 1 Cor 6:19-20; 1 Pet 4:1-3).

Together in Him, we can make a difference!
