The Power to Transform
American Christianity has chosen to focus on two of the promises Jesus gave us:
1. Eternal salvation
2. Miracles and deliverance for individuals by the Holy Spirit
But the Bible speaks of a third kind of promise: The transformation of nations. It is for this purpose that Jesus is coming back “to restore all things” (Acts 3:21). And prior to that ultimate triumph of the kingdom of God, He promises “times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19). These are the Revival tides that I describe in my latest book.
God, all along, has had a transformative impact on our world, and especially on the U.S.A., which has experienced an unbroken chain of transformational Revival tides from the start.
in this video I describe this third major promise of the Bible, in preparation for next month, when I describe the connection between the Second Great Awakening and the eradication of the slave industry worldwide—a major example of the role of the Holy Spirit to destroy the works of the devil among the nations. And thereby to transform them.
And by the way, I am looking for people who will review Glory Through Time Volume 2: The Forgotten Legacy of Transformational Revivals, on Amazon. And if the price that my publisher is asking for this book is too much for you, just write to me and I’ll return half, if you will write me a review. It would mean a lot to me to get your feedback.
