USA Tour – Revival
Keith Gerner (77) at Sturbridge Revival Centre shares how he has seen continual revival with the congregation (then under the leadership of Prophet Dan Lee). From personal experience and studies at Oxford University, he shares the various Scriptural bases for Revival from leading men of the past, up to more recent people God has used. This will open your eyes, if you are hungry for more of Jesus and explain how to avoid being trapped into any one wave of an incoming ocean before the Lord returns.
Lesson 1. The meaning of Revival
Includes some miracles Keith has seen in Ireland and in a life proving God can meet weak people with unexpected supply of His power.
Lesson 2. Ezekiel chapter 37 Revival
The Lord must give the vision to start revival, which essentially starts with the dead coming to life, and light in place of darkness. Keith shows the contrast between a dead and a living Jesus, and challenges believers to ACT their faith.
Lesson 3. John Wesley and the 1700s Revival leading to Holiness Movement
The Holy Spirit challenge to the Episcopal church is outlined by Keith through the life of John Wesley, whose prayer and preaching to common people are a modern challenge. We need to face the challenge. “Are we victorious over sin?” and this teaching segment cannot leave you unmoved.
Lesson 4. REVIVAL LECTURES BY FINNEY WAS A NEW MOVE!
Reliance on prayer and the move of God in His sovereign timing was promoted by Jonathan Edwards and others, who promoted a Calvinistic view of the sovereignty of God, where Finney as a lawyer swung the balance back to HUMAN RESPONSE. He also used prayer but started public meetings where he employed his legal training to challenge people. “You say you love God? How much time did you spend with His word today?” The production of an “anxious seat” and the writing of his classic book, sparked a whole new move of God in America, with a huge emphasis on guilt, repentance and the fruits of a new birth in holiness. This session and teaching is something you need to hear to bring possession to profession!
Revival 3 – John Wesley
Revival 4 – Charles Finney
He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another; and that you love one another as I have loved you. By this everyone shall know that you are my disciples, if you have love for each other.
And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.
