***The service, a routine meeting, was scheduled for 50 minutes. Instead, it lasted 185 hours non-stop, 24 hours a day. Intermittently, it continued for weeks. Ultimately, it spread across the United States and into foreign countries. Some say it is being felt even today.***

Lately it seems many of us have been sharing many concerns and comments about the latest debacles and the latest false revival.   There are  many occurring presently and I have watched so many videos of people falling to the ground with false anointings that my head is spinning, my stomach is sick, and my heart hurting.The burden many feel for the church is immense. So many are being deceived and loving it.

I have searched the web for true revivals and the result has been  dismal to say the least. Then I was sent a link about the asbury revival. I was skeptical because the link was surrounded by new-age articles. But thank God I was persuaded to watch it anyway. The footage is old and the sound poor to begin with, but it improves in a minute or so.

The Asbury Revival – February 1970 – Wilmore, Kentucky

Dr. Dennis Kinlaw was in Canada, away from the college when he received an emergency message to call the Dean….

I have some quotes from this amazing video. Here goes:

The Dean  – “I have a problem…and I don’t quite know how to handle it.”

Kinlaw  – “What is it?”

The Dean – “It’s chapel..it’s not over yet.”

Kinlaw – “It isn’t over yet? The morning chapel isn’t over yet? What do you mean it isn’t over yet? It is 7:00 at night. (Chapel starts at 10 am) What happened?”

“GOD IS HERE!”

“…the response lasted until the next Tuesday morning, a week later, at 8:00 when we began classes again.”

More quotes:

“Dr. Kinlaw..I am a liar..what do I do?”….”That was the kind of thing taking place. An honest, candid dealing with personal sin and with personal disobedience and personal problems.”

“It is interesting to me to know what the emphasis was…Holy Spirit in those days. There was an amazing openness and transparency.”

“The emphasis was never upon the gifts of the spirit. The emphasis was upon..sin. The need for repentance, need for restitution, the need for repairing relationships, human being to human being and the need for bringing alive into obedience the need for the highest and the best.”

“The amazing thing was a person would tell what had happened, it would be recapitulated, as a person would go somewhere and tell what God had done in his auditorium … it would take place in the church where the person was telling it!”

“The less impressive the student was the more effective an instrument he was”

“How did it come? What called it?…Our need.”

“We had some students interested in prayer. In October before the Spirit came in February six students came together, banded together in what they called ‘the great experiment.'”

“They covenanted for 30 days to take 30 minutes every morning and spend in prayer with the Word, writing down what truth they got from the Word. They were to obey that day, sharing their faith somewhere in the course of the day, and meeting once a week for those 30 days and checking up on each other to see that each one had done his disciplines that week. So for 30 days they met that way and they worked that way.”

********

Did you get that?  What a recipe for revival…… and it is no wonder why there are so few….

Take 30 minutes daily….add prayer while in the Word of God.

Search for truth in the Word of God and apply directly to self in obedience.

Take faith and share daily.

Check weekly for compliance.

DAILY PRAYER       DAILY READING THE BIBLE        DAILY WITNESSING     OBEDIENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD

It is no wonder why the church is in crisis and we have false revivals with false gospels with false anointings. 

Here is the video….It is about 37 minutes…Please take the time (just over 30 minutes, hint…hint) to prayerfully watch and compare with the revivals of today. The quotes cover the basics but i left out the ending.

Actually, I long to attend some of the so-called revivals of today. I want to be in the back of the room, kneeling on the floor with my Bible on the chair. Or just standing at the back, head down in prayer, Bible in hand. First, one should be totally armed with the spiritual weapons of Ephesians before stepping one foot into a demonic meeting.  Please pray with me that those who are truly seeking God will be protected from the evil spirits at these meetings. Pray that the Lord will prick their heart with fear, and warn them with the knowledge that something is wrong and that they need to leave immediately.

Now for that 30 minutes each day… You will set this time aside won’t you? Daily, pray in the Word, obey it  and share your faith.

God Bless….
