Fresh Baptism of Love

John Wesley writes of New Year’s night in 1739 when about sixty brethren gathered and the power of God visited them.

Messrs Hall, Kinchin, Ingham, Whitefield, Hutchins, and my brother Charles, were present at a love-feast, with about sixty of our brethren. About three o’clock in the morning, as we were continuing instant in prayer, the power of God came mightily upon us, insomuch that many cried out for exceeding joy, and many fell to the ground. As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of His majesty, we broke out with one voice, “We praise You, O God; we acknowledge You to be the Lord.”

Whitefield said, “It was the happiest New Year’s day I ever saw. It was a Pentecostal season, indeed.” Sometimes, in these meetings, whole nights were spent in prayer. Often have we been filled as with new wine, and often have seen them overwhelmed with the divine presence, and crying out, “Will God, indeed, dwell with men upon earth! How dreadful is this place! This is none other than the house of God and the gate of heaven!”

In this way, endued afresh with power from on high, did the three great evangelists George Whitefield, and John and Charles Wesley, begin together the memorable year which has since been recognized as “the epoch of Methodism.” (FB)

Frank Bartleman (1871–1936): author, revival eyewitness, historian, Holiness, U.S.A. Best known for his account of the historic and nation-affecting revival in Azusa Street, Los Angeles, this Holiness street evangelist wrote Evan Roberts in Wales for advice on how to spark a move of God in the “City of Angels” that would echo the Great Welsh Revival of 1904–1905. As the story goes, Roberts wrote back, “Congregate the people who are willing to make a total surrender. Pray and wait. Believe God’s promise.”

Scripture Focus…

“Meanwhile, friends, wait patiently for the Master’s Arrival. You see farmers do this all the time, waiting for their valuable crops to mature, patiently letting the rain do its slow but sure work. Be patient like that. Stay steady and strong. The Master could arrive at any time.”
(James 5:7–8 The Message)

We worship You!
Lord, we continually press more into You!
Seeing things and secrets being revealed to be used in this hour
There is a supernatural moving
We know there is a way for that to be uncovered and revealed
We stay the course—watching and listening
Moving out of the shadows into the light
The Church coming around the bend
That must be cleared and leveled out in Jesus’ name!
We stretch our faith in developing that plan
That is being stirred and revealed
It is a new hour and time, for it is a new day!
Reaching for the release
Seeing miracles and things we have not seen before begin to operate in our land!
Great recovery and restoration of the storehouses!
There is abundance!
So much more territory and empowerment
We do not lean on our own understanding
Turning, opening, and moving through!
In Jesus’ name, we continue to believe and receive!
We cannot stay in the same place, so we press in!
Praying for the changes that are to come
Praying over all of the eyes—eyes to see!
We stand on the watch over the city on the hill
Declaring protection over Israel by the blood of Jesus!
Covering all of the leaders
Money, come into the body of Christ now!
Greater influence!
The body of Christ is on the increase!
Covering the body of Christ in the blood of Jesus all across the world!
Seeing things begin to move in the right way and settled in God’s way!
Now is the time to watch and pray!
We yield to You with all that is in us, Lord!
By faith, we receive the declaration You will reveal to us!
We know things are being smoothed out now!
You get all the glory and praise!
