You would think that Christians would be in favor of Revival. After all, Revival tides are where King Jesus becomes wonderfully present, attracts large numbers of new Christians to Himself, writes His laws on many hearts—in short, He advances His kingdom during these seasons as at no other times. And yet, every Revival tide is opposed— not by pagans, but by Christians. It has been so consistently through the centuries. In this video, I tell the story of the first man to establish this pattern of opposition: King James I of England, who was also King James VI of Scotland. Yes, that’s right—the very man who loaned his name to our King James Bible. One of the great ironies of Christian history. But there it is.
By the way, all my newsletter stories are intended to give you brief glimpses into my next book: Glory Through Time, Volume Two, the Forgotten Legacy of Transformational Revivals. Hope to produce this book by Christmastime.
