Revised and updated in 2017. Revival Fires and Awakenings features thirty-six of the most powerful revivals and awakenings from world history, as well as little known visitations of the Holy Spirit. These revivals span eighteen countries on six continents and whilst each move of God is different, the author reveals the common characteristics and reoccurring experiences which come to the fore during times of God's showers of blessing.
Throughout the book there is a watermark and undercurrent of the influences of the British Awakening (1739-1791) and the Welsh Revival (1904-1905) and how Christians were stirred and encouraged by past visitations of the Holy Spirit; or encouraged and inspired by the lives of revivalists, to see the blessing of revival in their own town or nation.
Read about the glorious workings of God during times of heavenly visitations: Revived Christians, saved sinners, transformed communities and nations; healings, physical phenomena, conviction of sin, miracles, signs and wonders, deliverance from demons, prayer and intercession. Including visions and prophecies of revival for the United Kingdom and beyond. Learn from the past, be challenged for today and be inspired for the future!
