Awakening #5 – The First Modern Awakening
Just now, I am writing about the first modern Great Awakening, one that most of us have forgotten all about. It happened in Scotland during the latter part of the sixteenth century, and, through three waves of Revival, ended up transforming all of Scotland as a nation. This video tells this vastly important story, in brief. (In Volume Two of Glory Through Time, it will take eight chapters!) I am telling these stories to show you the people who began to surrender their lives so that God could use them to bring forth, in their generation, the Kingdom of God in all its transformational power.
My goal in writing Glory Through Time is to reawaken the memories of what God has done in previous generations so that we can catch the true vision of the Gospel of the Kingdom that is not “worked up,” but “prayed down.” And we can learn many, many lessons from those years to inspire and encourage us in our prayers.
Incidentally, Volume One of Glory Through Time is making good progress toward publication by Trilogy Books, the publishing arm of Trinity Broadcasting Network. I believe it will be out by August.
