WIGGLESWORTH on END-TIME REVIVAL:- "The WORD and the SPIRIT JOINED" NOTE: Before we get to Wigglesworth's prophecy, it is important to understand that there have been two major types of Revival in history. Before about 1900, virtually every Revival worldwide was basically a 'Repentance' Revival - with great conviction of sin and piercing preaching at the center of it. Eg. Finney, Wesley, Whitefield, etc. But after the Welsh Revival and Azusa Street in 1904-1906, tongues and healings began to be seen in more and more Revivals. The Hebrides Revival of 1949 was basically the last one of the "old" type that I have come across. It was the last one NOT to have a 'Pentecostal' emphasis, so to speak. My research shows that after 1950, pretty much every major Revival worldwide has been a "miracles, tongues and healings" type Revival. The rise of the US 'Healing Revival' and Charismatic movement also coincided with this. God had instigated a new era. As far as I know, all major Revivals today are of the Spirit-filled 'Pentecost' type. This has been the case for decades now. But the thing that makes Wigglesworth's 1947 prophecy so significant is this: What I believe is coming is a joining of the two types. -Piercing 'Finney'-type preaching along with miracles and healings. -Very powerful. This is probably a combination that the world has not seen since the Book of Acts. Below is Wigglesworth's prophecy relating to this. God bless you all. -Andrew Strom. -------------------------------------------- A prophecy attributed to Smith Wigglesworth in 1947: "During the next few decades there will be two distinct moves of the Holy Spirit across the church in Great Britain. The first move will affect every church that is open to receive it, and will be characterised by a restoration of the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit. "The second move of the Holy Spirit will result in people leaving historic churches and planting new churches. "In the duration of each of these moves, the people who are involved will say, 'This is a great revival.' But the Lord says, 'No, neither is the great revival but both are steps towards it.' "When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidence in the churches of something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit. When the word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed, the world has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years...."
