Revival in England

It is time for a clean break with the past. We have been sinking deeper into the mire of compromise with feminism in the church, as well as dallying with heresy in the essentials of the Christian faith, and there is little sign yet of an admission by the present generation of leaders that the experiment has failed to produce the revival in England and beyond that many have been longing for and even praying for during many long years.


The best known prophetic vision of revival in these islands is that of Jean Darnall, who was shown the fires of hungry believers seeking New Testament christian life, followed by lightning striking the fires and a great explosive wave of evangelistic fervour sweeping the land. What is not well known is that when she toured Scotland in 1987, she said wherever she went that the first sign of the great awakening would be a men’s prayer movement. This is in accordance with the scriptures, since they exhort first of all that prayers be made for all men that all may be saved, and then direct the men specifically to fulfill this most essential and holy ministry with uplifted and clean hands in every place without wrath or doubting.

Let us therefore heed the prophetic word and follow Jesus Christ in His mighty intercessory ministry and not fail the test by losing faith in God’s promise to Britain to restore its greatness and bring forth a new generation of holy missionaries who will not fear to evangelise the nations that are now held down in the darkness of false religion and idolatry.

I am reminded again of Winston Churchill’s moment of greatness when he rallied and fortified this nation to fight against the onslaught of an evil tyranny. Just three days after assuming leadership of a divided and irresolute country, and in the face of the breach of the defences of France and the Low Countries, he announced a policy of total war unto victory, and reversed the tide with faith and great courage. Taking up his task ‘with buoyancy and hope,’ he led the people of England into battle: “Come then, let us go forward together in our united strength.”

This not a time to give up, nor to draw back, but rather to march forward in unity and determination and fervour. The light of the gospel of the glory of Christ is shining still – let us work while there is still light.

My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.

(Hebrews 10 v 38)

Let us not be of those who shrink back to destruction, but be those who persevere in faith and hope and victory over the powers of darkness which assail us.

The fires of war are building in strength in the Middle East, and especially over the rocket war, for the Moslem nations have found a way to challenge Israeli military superiority without committing themselves to all-out battle. Syria is especially vulnerable to being used as a proxy by bigger powers who are currently close to breaking American military and economic hegemony through pressure in those areas combined with the subversion of that nation’s Christian foundations both in the church and in the social sphere. Oh that we would wake up and see the danger before it is too late.

I live for Jesus. He is my life, my hope, my Saviour and Redeemer and Lord. Hallelujah! God has blessed me with a wonderful wife called Alison, and we serve the Lord together with gladness and joy. Pray for us that we may fulfill our calling and persevere to the end on the narrow path that leads to life.

  1. Good Morning Andrew.
    It excited me when I read your comments. I had a 2 Visits from a Chilean
    evangelist based in Sweden in 2008. As he was praying in the spirit, I saw all these little fires burning. The next day I was visited by Jackie Shuttleworth who actually confirmed this vision. We are living in exciting times !

  2. Dear Andrew, good to see you still going strong. I had a feeling you’d reached your final spiritual destination.

    Currently in Budapest again, about to launch a non-fiction publishing house. {Though that’s in English in England – but with the internet doesn’t matter where I am. Can work from anywhere.} Just have to get the last couple of authors for the first book, and edit the thing and give it to the layout designer before Christmas…

    Best of luck with the revival you’re working for! From the January 2009 date, I assume this is a very occasional commentary page of yours. My weblog is at http://www.otherlanguages.org

    Ciao,

    Mark

  3. In my last reply I mentioned about the possibility of organizing prayer meetings, praying for revival. How about starting it, if thats what you want I will meet up with you and maybe start the first one. It’s time for action, let’s do what Jesus did, and get out there. I am waiting for a people like minded to me, are one of those people, if so let’s rise up and be heard.

  4. I thank God for those who have been praying for revival for many years and even decades, hidden from men but known to God, and yes I am always open to new prayer meetings or initiatives. 1 Timothy 2 v 8 is a call to the men in particular to pray in every place lifting up holy hands without wrath or doubting or disputing, and this is what the Lord has laid upon my heart to commend to the brethren who are seeking Him for the way forward in this hour of deepening darkness.

  5. Hallelujah…fully agree with you on 1 Tim 2:8 as I pray and believe 2 Chronicles 7:14. I am of firm belief that revival isn’t coming…it is here!(Faith..’the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen’..). It starts within the heart of true believers and is contagious, thus spreads to those around us, Amen……so let’s get the fire started, don’t wait for someone else, God has placed the anointing in you (us), what are we going to do with it is the question!!!
