Awakenings are surges of the Spirit exalting Jesus over an area. The early believers in Jerusalem witness the first wave. On that day Peter quotes a prophecy of Joel to describe what is happening. He declares, “In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people’” (Acts 2:17). God intends to honor his Son in these last days through awakenings. Since Jesus, first coming each successive wave drives the tide of history toward his return.
This Seedbed Seedling briefly looks at some awakenings in our history. Understand, it only samples a few. Countless more recorded revivals exist, not only from the West but from many other nations. Some are going on right now!
God seeks a people who dare to risk for another great awakening. It’s our prayer this little taste stirs you to join that company.
