Awesome Video: 1857 United States Revival Goes Global

2 Chronicles 7:14

New International Version (NIV)
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


If you are a Christian perhaps you've been saddened by some of the negative changes that have taken place in this country, and through-out the world over the last several decades.

Perhaps like me you long for a sweeping revival to take over this land...and return this nation to Godly principles, and the Godly Blessings that allowed the United States to prosper and thrive.

I just found an interesting video that describes a Christian "revival" that took place in 1857.

Begun as a business men's prayer meeting with only 6 in attendance it soon flooded across this nation until it was necessary to hold meetings out-doors to accommodate the mass of people wishing to attend.  And then revival began spreading around the world

God often uses difficulties to turn us to Him...and in 1857 it was no different.

The US had suffered through a devastating Stock Market crash and rumors of civil war between the states could be felt in the air.

It was against this background of turmoil...that God began moving in a mighty way.

Perhaps we can see this kind of revival once again in this wonderful nation.

I pray so!

2 Chronicles 7:19-22

New International Version (NIV)
19 “But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21 This temple will become a heap of rubble. All who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22 People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’”
