Another notable piece from Bill Bennett's The Patriotic American's Daily Almanac. The Great Awakening October 5 is the birthday of Jonathan Edwards, born in 1703 in East Windsor, Connecticut. The Congregational minister’s preaching and writing made him one of the most important figures in colonial America. His famous sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” threatened doom for the unrepentant (“The God that holds you over the pit of *** much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked”) but also emphasized the transforming power of Christ’s love (“Christ has flung the door of mercy wide open, and stands in the door calling”). Edwards became an influential voice in the Great Awakening, the religious revival that swept the colonies in the 1730s and ’40s. Ministers with powerful preaching styles, such as George Whitefield from England, attracted huge audiences. Many established religious authorities, including Church of Engla . ...

Of Parrots and Eagles Chuck Swindol Hebrews 6:11–12 We are running shy of eagles, and we're running over with parrots. Content to sit safely on our evangelical perches and repeat in rapid-fire falsetto our religious words, we are fast becoming overpopulated with bright-colored birds having soft bellies, big beaks, and little heads. What would help to balance things out would be a lot more keen-eyed, wide-winged creatures willing to soar out and up, exploring the illimitable ranges of the kingdom of God . . . willing to return with a brief report on their findings before they leave the nest again for another fascinating adventure. Parrot people are much different than eagle thinkers. They like to stay in the same cage, pick over the same pan full of seeds, and listen to the same words over and over again until they can say them with ease. They like company too. Lots of attention, a scratch here, a snuggle there, and they'll stay for years right on the same perch. You and I can't remember the last time we ...
I just woke up from a dream encounter that left me with such tangible prescence that I could weep.I feel the lord will have me share this and release this over everyone who will receive.In this dream I was walking across a street and saw a huge crowd.They surrounded two black women who preached with such grace,glory and power that people could not move.They were drawn by the unction of the spoken words.Their words were soaked with revival fire. As I woke up filled with the prescence of God, I remembered a previous dream I had months ago where I saw myself and others stood up in different corners and regions releasing the gospel with fire.As I woke up today, I felt this is the face of what is about to break open.There is about to be a real move for street preachers to arise with power like never beforeWe are about to enter or have already entered a season where the glory and unction will spontaneously rest on people who will get up in street corners across the globe.They will rise up like the John Wesleys ...

OPEN REBUKE IS BETTER THAN SECRET LOVE Warning: Sugar-Coated ‘Ear Candy’ Gospel is Weakening Saints by Steve Hill and Jennifer Le Claire Look around and you’ll see the undeniable signs of the times. The Supreme Court that opened the door to murdering more than 55 million babies has failed to defend traditional marriage. The prince of the power of the air is propagating all manner of immorality over mass media. And all sorts of heresy is circulating in the body of Christ. Despite the darkness of the hour, we are still believing for a revival—a Great Awakening. In fact, we believe we’re living in the greatest hour in church history. The true bride will arise in prayer to combat the forces of darkness and open the door to the salvation of many. Yet we must prepare for this outpouring. What’s more, amid this stark contrast of light and dark lies a dangerous time for believers, as many are ill-equipped to face the challenges coming in the days ahead. Despite decades of teaching on the fivefold mini ...

“Ruined by sin. Redeemed by the Savior. Regenerated by the Spirit.” -George Whitefield
Brethren hear this, in the writings of Isaiah we see three clear consequences for the result of the nation of Israel not having repentance towards God. May I say that these three consequences will also be ours if we do not have a renewed repentance in the Church and a revolutionary revival from Heaven. If no revival then we will see these three judgments come on the earth and surely anyone that has been awakened to the hour will realize these monstrous consequences already have fallen upon us. If no revival, then *** will be enlarged. “Therefore *** hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure.” Oh brethren, the horror of it, *** yawning and swallowing multiplied millions of souls that will be damned forever. To just see a glimpse of this reality will shake any soul to ask, “What can be done?” George Whitefield said: “At the day of judgement we shall all meet again.” How will you feel when you meet all of the millions of souls that could have been saved if you prayed and soug .. ...

“But if these things be so, what a miserable condition are those unhappy governors in, who are so far from feeding those committed to their care with the sincere milk of the word, to the intent they may grow thereby, that they neither search the scriptures themselves, nor are careful to explain them to others? Such families must be in a happy way indeed to do their Master's will, who take such prodigious pains to know it! Would not one imagine that they had turned converts to the Church of Rome, that they thought ignorance to be the mother of devotion; and that those were to be condemned as heretics who read their Bibles? And yet how few families are there amongst us, who do not act after this unseemly manner! But shall I praise them in this? I praise them not; Brethren, this thing ought not so to be.” ~George Whitefield
Family Life “There is a great deal in the way in which a man walks in his house. It will not do to be a saint abroad and a devil at home! There are some of that kind. They are wonderfully sweet at a Prayer Meeting, but they are dreadfully sour to their wives and children. This will never do! Every genuine Believer should say, and mean it, ‘I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.’ It is in the home that we get the truest proof of godliness. ‘What sort of a man is he?’ said one to George Whitefield, and Whitefield answered, ‘I cannot say, for I never lived with him.’ That is the way to test a man—to live with him.”—1894, Charles H.

"Speaking in Other Tongues" for additional information: Tongues - Part 2 Apostolic Doctrine - General WHY DID GOD CHOOSE TONGUES? By Fred E. Kinzie HE WAS A DEACON in a fashionable church, but he did not believe in the Pentecostal doctrine relative to the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Yet he had been exposed to that belief through members of his immediate family. One night, at the close of an evangelistic service in an Apostolic Church, he went forward to pray, and was overwhelmingly filled with the Spirit of God. He spoke in other tongues fluently and was so inundated in the Spirit that even hours later he could not speak English. Definitely, this was a Biblical experience accompanied not only with the speaking in another tongue, but also with the joy and peace of the Holy Ghost. Millions have experienced this same baptism in the Spirit. Wherever this message is proclaimed concerning the baptism of the Holy Ghost, the question is asked, "Why did God choose speaking in tongues as the initial, physical eviden ...
THIS DAY IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY: June 17 Looking back on the history of Christianity and the Church, we notice that it is sometimes violent, sometimes inspiring, shocking, tragic, comic, or just plain bizarre. It is certainly never dull. Our Christian heritage was passed down to us through blood, sweat and tears, but mostly by the faith of our fathers. The church age as we know it is coming to an end very soon. Be very blessed and informed as you read these brief notations on the successes and failures of Christianity throughout the ages. June 17, 362: Emperor Julian the Apostate ordered that all schoolmasters and professors must obtain a license before teaching, thus excluding Christians from educating youth. June 17, 1535: Henry VIII had the staunch Roman Catholic bishop John Fisher arraigned; five days later Fisher was beheaded at the Tower of London on trumped-up charges. His real crime" was refusing to sign a document that declared King Henry VIII's unwelcome marriage to Catherine of Aragon unlawful. J ...

As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of His Majesty, we broke out with one voice, 'We praise thee, O God; we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.'" I wonder if that "Mr. Hall" was some of my kinfolk?
