Resurrection Power

The apostle Paul wrote, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17). In other words, the resurrection power of Jesus frees believers from every bondage, sickness, and sin. Salvation requires not only repentance, but actually believing this about Jesus. This is more than...

Like the Day of Pentecost

Like the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to Ibambi in the northern Congo. He changed the quiet, proper prayer meetings into powerhouses. In particular, the Christians learned by experience the difference between prayer and intercession. Simply, in an intercession, those praying feel as if they will die if the Lord does not answer....

God’s Resting Place

In the new covenant, God’s resting place is in the hearts of holy Christians. Jesus said that he and the Father would make their home in those who loved Jesus and kept his commandments (John 14). One woman in the Congo Revival testified to this experience. She loved Jesus, belonged to him, and did not...

Confession in the Congo Revival

Confession in the Congo Revival caused the revival to spread. But more than that, in one sense confession was the very heart of the revival. With confession came great joy, forgiveness, mercy, and power for ministry. Our need for revival in the United States is linked to this need for Holy Spirit conviction, followed by...

Tornado of Blessing

The revival in Opienge, Congo, began with a few small drops that turned into a tornado of blessing. At first, several people began to shake in the meetings. Then, at home, one man struck his wife, and immediately felt such remorse that he spent the night wailing and crying to God for mercy. Soon, people...

Keep Your Hands to the Plow! (2018)

Jesus said, “No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62). The prophet Elisha is an example of one who didn’t look back. Instead, he burned his farm equipment, slaughtered and ate his oxen, and devoted the rest of his life to serving...

A New Heart

A New Heart

Gospel freedom includes a new heart that hates evil and loves God. If you repent, believe, and are born again, you will have this new heart. The Holy Spirit will arouse strong feelings of hatred for sin and love for God, others, and righteousness. As a result, God can make his home in your heart....
