FREDERICTON, July 26 / Will God send an Spiritual Awakening? Yes, is the resounding answer from the 30 year old Greg Gordon who is the founder of SermonIndex.net an online digital tape ministry spanning the world. A quote by Andrew Gih from one of the Revival Conference brochures reflects this optimism "God's time for revival is the very darkest hour, when everything seems hopeless. It is always the Lord's way to go to the very worst cases to manifest His glory."
Over the past 3 years there have been revival conference events that have been held in Ohio, Atlanta, Oklahoma, Scotland and now planned in Wales, Ireland and Indiana. And more planned for next year in Canada potentially. There were over 1000 in attendance at each event to date and attendees from over 30 countries and all different denominational backgrounds gathered together. But if you are thinking these are typical "revival meetings" are you in for a surprise. The vision of the conferences on the website RevivalConference.com reflects this:
"There are over 10,000 conferences that happen every year. The 'Revival Conference' is not to be just another conference but a honest, sincere, earnest plea for the desperate need of revival. There is no cost to attend the event. No materials will be sold. There will be no big bands. The conference will have the chief object to be God-glorifying. The speakers will come on their own accord trusting God for provision. There will be no emphasis on money during the event. The event will be a simple, apostolic, yearning for a genuine biblical revival in our day. The conference is hosted by the ministry of SermonIndex.net and is a inter-denominational event."
Greg shares, "I personally believe some of these events have become historic in my mind. For instance in Atlanta last year Paul Washer delivered a message called 'Ten Indictments Against The Modern Day Church.' As soon as this message was delivered I knew this was going to spread around the entire world, and it did! This message has been viewed now by over 1 million people across the world." Paul Washer will be speaking in Wales and Ireland this year and there is a real expectation of what messages he will deliver in the UK.
