The 20th Year of Revival

Just back in the UK from the Partners in Harvest & Catch the Fire 20 year celebration.

What started out as an incredible Grace/Holy Spirit outpouring at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship (Now known as Catch the Fire Church Toronto) has become a global movement of thousands of churches and tens of thousands of revivalists in many many nations. I remain completely amazed how this fire of God is spreading unabated in so many different places. We heard revival reports from Russia, China, Southeast Asia, India, Europe, North America, and many nations too sensitive to mention by name. In one church alone in Russia there have been 30,000 documented and reported healings.

I believe one of the main reasons for this continual outpouring is the honour with which we host the presence of the Holy Spirit and the centrality of the word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Truly a word and spirit fusion which is causing spontaneous growth around the world. When this is combined with a humble dependence on the Holy Spirit and the healing of the emotions, soul and spirit in the Father’s love it becomes a sweet smelling fragrance of adoration and love going up to The Lord.

It is very true that this is only one small expression in the wider Body of Christ with its 2 billion Christian members, but I believe it is a sweet smelling and precious thing in the sight of Jesus and a healing balm in the body of Christ for the sake of the nations.
