When men in the streets are afraid to open their mouths and utter godless words lest the judgments of God should fall;
when sinners, overawed by the Presence of God tremble in the streets and cry for mercy;
when, without special meetings and sensational advertising, the Holy Ghost sweeps across cities and towns in supernatural power and holds men in the grip of terrifying Conviction;
when “every shop becomes a pulpit, every heart an altar, every home a sanctuary” and people walk softly before God.
This is Revival!
The best definition of “revival” is the phrase:
“Times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord.”
