2007 is quickly approaching! Wow! As I wrote in a past blog, I'm sensing that the Lord is saying that 2007 will be "A Year Like None Other!" What that fully means, I've got no idea, however, I do know that "something" HAS to happen in the American Church, and as far as I'm concerned, 2007 might as well be The Year!
I am very excited at what this New Year will bring.
In the meantime, we can learn many lessons from the past. Corinne and I consider ourselves Revivalists. Some call us evangelists, some call us other titles, but we consider ourselves Revivalists. What's that mean? Very simply put, a Revivalist lives, eats, sleeps and drinks revival. OK.... there are a lot of large churches in America. It surely seems like "something" is happening. But... our question is, "What's happening?" Is our Nation being changed? I sure can't see it. America needs revival. No.... let me change that statement...THE AMERICAN CHURCH NEEDS REVIVAL! (Even the Large Ones!)
There have been many great times of revival within the past 50 years. One of the most noted is the Hebrides Revival of the early 1950's. One of the great leaders of this move of God, off the coast of Scotland, was Duncan Campbell. You can find his recorded messages on the Internet. However, I was recently sent a link to "Revival Messages" from Campbell, Leonard Ravenhill, and others. I have added this link to our website.
Corinne and I first listened to this 35 minute presentation sitting in our car in Northern Florida. We had to drive 15 miles to find a strong enough wireless signal for our laptop wireless card to view and listen. Once we were able to pull up the site, we sat in our car weeping like babies!
If you too believe that America and the American church are in dire need of revival... you MUST listen to this clip! If you are not sure yet, take the time and listen to it, then formulate your thinking.
Please go to the front page of our website and scroll down to "Revival Voices of the Past." Click on that link and go from there. You do need a pretty high speed connection to make this work. However, even if it takes you over an hour to listen through all of the re-buffering, it will be fully worth your time. Oh, one other thing... make sure you have a box of Kleenex handy!

From Corinne and I, please have a Happy New Year, "2007, A Year Like None Other!"
