The Welsh Revival Remembered
By Evan John Roberts
The Heater that brings Revival!
A Word of encouragement…
“Tonight I was walking home from the prayer meeting and the cold air was bitter in my face as the winds were opposing me.
I knew that if I kept going, I’d reach a nice warm house. Then suddenly I walked under an air outlet on the outside wall of a restaurant.
The warm air was lush and I just wanted to stay there under it forever! It was refreshing compared to the cold!
But I knew that I had to continue through the cold in order to reach the nice warm cosy house where my wife would be waiting to greet me and a hot meal ready.
Then the Spirit spoke!…
That walk through the cold is like our lives of prayer! We push and push, knock and knock, call and call, cry and cry!
Then ‘suddenly’ we get a glimpse of the warmth, the moment and time of refreshing, an experience of the ultimate destination that we call Heaven! It is otherwise known as ‘Revival Time!’
Like the heater in the wall, we want to stop and remain. We never want to leave that place.
But soon the heater will switch off and the restaurant will close, and so we must go on because there is an even better destination ahead!
1904 was such a ‘heater’ that came and went…
If I hadn’t started out on the journey, I’d have never come across the heater. If we don’t pray, we’ll never experience revival.
I didn’t know the heater was there but the walk ensured that I was heading in the right direction. Like this walk, when you pray God will ensure that you will be in the right place at the right time when He moves by His Spirit!
That’s His responsibility! But walk you must!
Keep going! Keep praying! It’s hard and life, the flesh, and the enemy opposes like the bitter winds but don’t give up! The ‘heater’ could be just around the corner!…
And to those who have left a heater behind them, don’t give up! A bigger, warmer heater may be ahead!…
Then we reach the ultimate! A place where the lover of our soul awaits patiently with a meal fit for a king and warmth that will last forever!
Keep going! Don’t give up!
Take my hand and let’s walk together in unity with The LORD!” ❤️

A Now Word from one who experienced Revival like very few others have ever experienced it.
Can we heed the Wisdom here?
Can we too feel the Heater as a small sample of that which is to come?
Can we press in until we get the full manifestation?
Oh LORD, hear our cries today and every day — turn your ‘heater’ on full blast so that we too may find You and Your Revival \0/
