Lessons of the Welsh Revival - G. Campbell Morgan - ebook
Opis

I have not read these words as a text, but as an introduction, to what I desire to say, as God shall help me, concerning the most recent manifestation of’ the Pentecostal power. I refer to the great work of God that is going on in Wales at this time; and I trust that something more than curiosity makes you desire to hear of this work, for I am not speaking with any intention to satisfy curiosity. I want now in the simplest way to speak to you, first, very briefly, and as far as it is possible, of what my own eyes have seen, my own ears heard, and my own heart felt.I do this in order that, we may ask finally, what are the lessons God would teach us in this day of His visitation? Yet I cannot help reverting, before going further, to the passage that I have read in your hearing. Peter stood in the midst of one of the most wonderful scenes that the world has ever beheld. When men said of the shouting multitude that they were drunk, Peter said, “No, those men are not drunken as ye suppose”; but “this is that,” which was spoken by the Prophet Joel. If anyone shall say to me, “What do you think of the Welsh Revival?” I say at once, “This is that.”

LESSONS

OF THE

WELSH REVIVAL

“For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day; but this is that which hath been spoken by the prophet Joel:

“And it shall be in the last days, saith God,

I will pour forth out My Spirit upon all flesh:

And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

And your young men shall see visions,

And your old men shall dream dreams:

Yea, and on My bond-servants and on My bond-maidens in those days

will I pour forth of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy.”

—Acts 2:15-18.

I have not read these words as a text, but as an introduction, to what I desire to say, as God shall help me, concerning the most recent manifestation of’ the Pentecostal power. I refer to the great work of God that is going on in Wales at this time; and I trust that something more than curiosity makes you desire to hear of this work, for I am not speaking with any intention to satisfy curiosity. I want now in the simplest way to speak to you, first, very briefly, and as far as it is possible, of what my own eyes have seen, my own ears heard, and my own heart felt.

I do this in order that, we may ask finally, what are the lessons God would teach us in this day of His visitation? Yet I cannot help reverting, before going further, to the passage that I have read in your hearing. Peter stood in the midst of one of the most wonderful scenes that the world has ever beheld. When men said of the shouting multitude that they were drunk, Peter said, “No, those men are not drunken as ye suppose”; but “this is that,” which was spoken by the Prophet Joel. If anyone shall say to me, “What do you think of the Welsh Revival?” I say at once, “This is that.”

This is no mere piece of imagination, and it certainly is not a piece of exaggeration. “I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,” is the promise now evidently fulfilled in Wales: If you ask for proof of that assertion I point to the signs. “Your young men shall see visions!” That is exactly what is happening. It does not at all matter that this cynical and dust-covered age laughs at the vision. “The young men are seeing it. “And your old men shall dream dreams,” and that is happening. The vision goes forward, the dream goes backward; and the old men are dreaming of ‘59, and feeling its thrill again. “Yea, and on My bond-servants and on My handmaidens,” that is on the slaves and the domestic servants, “I will pour My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.” It does not at all matter that some regular people are objecting to the irregular doings “This is that.” If you ask the meaning of the Welsh Revival, I say,

It Is Pentecost Continued,

without one single moment’s doubt.

But, for a few moments let me speak of the thing itself. Let me talk familiarly and quietly, as though sitting in my own room.
