Holiness or Hell

Does a person have to keep sinning until death? A fierce battle over this question has raged for hundreds of years. One preacher, William Godbey, took the strong position, “Holiness or hell.” This dear brother lifts up Jesus as a complete, all-powerful, “NOW,” Savior. He is able and willing to save his people completely and...

The Kentucky Revival

In 1800, deism and Calvinism had infiltrated the Kentucky churches. They were powerless, dead, and filled with sin. In answer to prayer, God sent tremendous convicting, slaying, saving, and sanctifying power. The Kentucky revival lasted about a year. Most notably, in the 20,000+ person Cane Ridge revival meeting, at least 3,000 people literally fell under...

That You May Believe

After Lazarus died, Jesus said that he was glad he hadn’t been there. Why? So that the disciples might believe. But what were they to believe? And what are we to believe, in order to be saved? Picking up on this introduction by Pastor Ray, Alexandra goes on to show that we are to believe...

Send the Fire

For ten years, the evangelists in Argentina prayed, “Lord, send the fire!” Though thousands of pagans had been healed and converted in the revival, they lacked the deeper workings of repentance, contrition, and holiness.

These Little Ones

“Pure and undefiled religion is this,” wrote the apostle James, “to care for the orphans and widows.” In Argentina, these little ones included abandoned children and orphans who lived in mud-huts, open plazas, hospitals, and even an insane asylum.

A Monument to His Faithfulness

During the Argentine revival, a serious question arose. Where were the pastors to teach the new converts? Who would establish them in the Lord? Surely, God did not intend to abandon them.

The Day God Visited

When God visited Chaco, Christ’s kingdom came in power in thousands of beautiful instances of healing and salvation. This revival followed years of unsuccessful, yet faithful, missionary work. Suddenly, God transformed church meetings from a handful of occasional visitors into an unending tide that flooded the parsonage. Soon, the crowd spilled into outdoor meetings boasting...

Breaking Impossibility Wall

After an entire Argentine church was born from the 11-day healing service in Necochea, evangelists traveled to Loberia to continue working. But there, the situation seemed hopeless. Several elderly missionaries, after years of toil, had produced only about a dozen converts. When the new evangelists arrived, the police refused permission for healing services. Exorbitant rental...

Healing in Necochea

When the heavenly visitor came to the Bible Institute in Bell City, he promised a continuous wave of revival in Argentina. But, there was a condition. The people of Argentina had to accept, and not refuse, the revival. So after the Tommy Hicks healing services ended, the remaining five evangelists wondered: Was this just a...
