“In times of evangelism, the evangelist seeks the sinner, in times of revival the sinner comes chasing after the Lord.” – J. Edwin Orr.
The Christian Revivals
“Revival is a going of God among His people and an awareness of God laying hold of the community.” – Duncan Campbell.
The Welsh Revival 1904 – 1905.
The Welsh Revival is perhaps the most famous in modern church history. Quite literally an entire nation was set-ablaze and transformed within a matter of just a few months. We join Evan Roberts where the revival began and trace its influence around the nation.
The Hebridean Revival 1949-1952.
This revival is one of the most dramatic outpourings of the 20th century. Find out how the Holy Spirit descended upon entire communities and and discover how His Presence was so tangible that people fell to the ground by the road-side weeping under conviction of sin!
The Evangelical Revival 1739 – 1791.
The Evangelical Revival changed the entire character of a nation and transformed every area of society. Beginning in the hearts of a few members of the Holy Club, the revival spread, leading to the conversion of one quarter of the population!
“Often I have seen them overwhelmed with the Divine Presence and cry out, ‘Will God indeed dwell with men on earth?'” – George Whitefield.
Evan Roberts received an overwhelming burden for the soul of his nation. He began asking God for 100,000 people to be saved and he spent nights in prayer. He was the principle character that God used to birth the Welsh Revival. “You must put yourself entirely at the Holy Spirit’s disposal” he once said.
Duncan Campbell said, “Revival is a community saturated with God.” Campbell witnessed first hand the Spirit of God descending upon a community and learnt to let the Holy Spirit have His way. In his own words, “Seventy-five percent (of the people) were gloriously saved before they came near a meeting…the power of God was moving!”
John & Charles Wesley and George Whitefield were present at the beginning of Evangelical Revival. “It was a Pentecostal season indeed” said Whitefield. “Sometimes whole nights were spent in prayer. Often we have been filled as with new wine!” Around 25% of the population gave their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.
