Sorry to publish something again so soon. There have 
been a number of questions arising from my "AMERICA" 
email yesterday. People are also asking about my 
itinerary in the USA, so that is included below as well.

Firstly, a few people got the impression that I was saying 
that "Revival is not coming to America". Far be it from me 
to ever say such a thing!  You know, I was close to tears 
at times yesterday as I was pondering and writing on this 
subject. Because the possibility of a Revival powerhouse 
like America actually missing her "hour of visitation" is a 
nightmare. There are very few places in the world that 
have EVER been a "Land of Revivals" and America is one 
of them. The consequences for the church and the whole 
Western world are just enormous.  I don't think we realize 
how important it is that for generation after generation, 
GOING BACK CENTURIES, America has had regular 
Revivals and Awakenings. This has altered the course 
of history - it really has.

The point I was making is that, although America truly 
is a "Land of Revivals", this cannot be taken for granted. 
Wales also was a Land of Revivals - yet look at her today!
It is possible to lose it all - in the space of just one 
generation.

That was the point I was making. There is an urgency for 
Revival in America. Because if this generation goes by 
and does not see Revival, America could lose everything 
she has had. Wales simply missed ONE GENERATION 
and lost it all. 

There is something very significant about the 50-year 
gap between Revivals.  Wales missed her "next window 
of Revival" so to speak, and it was all over!  It is very 
hard to recover after that, because the generation that 
"remembers Revival" passes on, and the momentum is 
lost. It has now been 50 years since America's last 
major Revival. So we need to get an URGENCY in our 
spirits about this - we really do.

Some people have reminded me that the "Jesus 
Movement" of the late 60's and early 70's may have
been a kind of Revival.  I am aware of this movement,
but hesitate to call it a "Revival".  I think it was more
of an outgrowth of the charismatic movement. It was 
great for a few years and ministered to the hippie and
youth movements of the day - but I just don't think it 
amounted to a full-on "Revival".  However, those were 
indeed good days and perhaps this has bought us 
some time. Who knows?

But my own feeling is that the "50 years" thing is
significant. This is what I felt God impressing upon
me when I was pondering and writing about this.

The 50 years are up.  Could America miss her next 
hour of visitation? 

We need to pray with real urgency about this.
