Mathew Backholer is the co-founder of ByFaith Media (ByFaith.org) and films and presents ByFaith TV which airs on numerous Christian networks around the world. As a revival historian he collates, documents and records revivals from around the globe. He is the author of a number of books including: Revival Fires and Awakenings, Global Revival, Revival Fire and Extreme Faith.
Throughout the book there is a watermark and undercurrent of the influences of the British Awakening (1739-1791) and the Welsh Revival (1904-1905) and how Christians were stirred and encouraged by past visitations of the Holy Spirit; or encouraged and inspired by the lives of revivalists, to see the blessing of revival in their own town or nation.
Read about the glorious workings of God during times of heavenly visitations: Revived Christians, saved sinners, transformed communities and nations; healings, physical phenomena, conviction of sin, miracles, signs and wonders, deliverance from demons, prayer and intercession. Including visions and prophecies of revival for the United Kingdom and beyond. Learn from the past, be challenged for today and be inspired for the future!
Somewhere, between the pages of this book and the pages of your heart, God is speaking. And He is calling you by name.
Maybe that's hard to believe. Maybe you just can't imagine that the One who made it all thinks of you that personally -- that He keeps your name on His heart and lips.
But it's true. In the Bible and in the circumstances of your life, He whispers your name lovingly. Tenderly. Patiently but persistently. Let these stories remind you of the God who knows your name.
Some of the stories are from the Bible. Some are drawn from everyday life. Most are about people who are lost ... or weary ... or discouraged -- just like you may be. If you let them, they will tell the story of your life. And the story of a God who speaks into your situation.
So listen closely as you turn these pages. Listen for the Father's gentle whisper that can erase your doubt, your sorrow, your weariness, your despair.
It really is your name that you hear, and the Voice that calls is more loving that your ever dared dream. Listen. And learn to hope again.
