One eyed Revivalists

You might think it is William Seymoure of the Azusa Street Fame. However, the first one we found dated back to the early 1700s. It was surprising to hear of the first Revivalist that we have located so far who had the "moniker" of being a one eyed preacher was --in the First Awakening-- Reverend George Whitfield. As you know, he was also the Father of the First American Awakening. They believed being "one eyed" was a symbolic connection to having a strong connection to the Lord. You spend so many hours reading diaries and journals and hearing how back then they saw it as one eye that saw spiritually, one eye that saw naturally and they honored him for it. They saw it as a clear channel to focus on the things of God, in diary after diary, and even the paintings of him all clearly depict this. In all the miracles that happened throughout his ministry (and the salvations are usually discussed more), they never dreamed of praying him into having two functional eyes. I know when researching Reverend Seymour, it was quite surprising to see him with that "moniker", too. As I had wondered with Whitfield, why in all the miracles that he participated and witnessed, and miracles was the norm for William Seymour, when he certainly saw enough eyes healed, even eyes brought in supernaturally where there had only been an empty socket, why did he not ask God for his healing? In everything read, he apparently never considered asking, as Whitfield never considered asking. Whitfield with this moniker unified a nation and prepared them to birth a new nation. Seymour unified beyond all expectations –I am awed to the level he was willing to go to net the goal God set before him—so we could have that spiritual birth in the Spirit. His work inspired the birth of Pentecostal denominations but also all the west coast ones. Aimee Semple Mcpherson would say without William Seymour she would not have had the ministry she had. Ministers high up in that denomination (who ran the denomination) have told me that his work just birthed it all. You listen to things and ponder and marvel at what God put together though one man’s loving heart, sacrifice of praise and faithfulness. As people said it would be impossible to birth America, to free her from being a colony of England, what William Seymour did in sharing the birth of the working of the Spirit was --huge. Birth a physical new nation? Birth a people who can chose to see no limits in the Spirit? Huge. We saw this Spirit baptism tested when Russia moved from being under the Tsar to being the Soviet Union. That work was a birthing of Rev William Seymour, too. When the newly Soviet church was put behind bars there and tortured, when over 11 million believers were killed that revelation William Seymour prayed in spawned a multi-million salvation revival BEHIND bars. For everyone killed, the KGB saw with horror there were at first 1 then 2 then ten that took the place of the dead believer. Where in other revivals, notes were kept on salvations only, the KGB also kept notes on the numbers of those filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. And the many who were –those were only the known ones. Likely the numbers of those were in the millions, as well. And it was known around that place that it all started at Azusa Street. William Seymour. His prayers. Faith. The kindness to share what so many never deserved to hear, at all. He walked in such great love. And that love went around the world. Both men certainly had an awesome eye --eyes-- for the things of the Spirit. I love that when Seymour prayed, that box he put his head into (or whatever he was near) would resonate. The box actually turned a blue color and no one would touch him, not being sure what could happen. Reports said his prayers netted many things though the children loved playing in the fog his prayers certainly enacted. and the fog brought healing to whoever walked in it. George Whitfield's work unified a country, prepared them for the war that would create this nation. He didn’t live to see the revolution start though he fought every battle that came his way before that but most importantly he did everything to help our people prepare for war. William Seymour's work brought the power of Holy Spirit not just to transform this nation but into every nation. He likely never knew the far reach of his ministry and teaching. We are still learning as documents are declassified in various lands what all that impact was. The power to make changes, and bring healing no matter the area. His ministry showed the effect of the spiritual war and how it reaches to change us in the natural. No one else had a ministry in our nation to that point that so distinctly pointed that out. As far as we can tell, no other revivalist held the title that these two held. No one else quite birthed what they did, either. They changed the world we know or knew. There was a courage there that brings awe and each man bore scars like stars. Each man rose above what he experienced, what he knew and we will never be the same.

Evangelist John Alexander Dowie

There is so much good we can learn from this evangeilst's life. Dowie was born in Edinburgh to John Murray Dowie, a tailor and preacher.[1] He moved to Adelaide, South Australia, with his parents in 1860 and found work in a prosperous shoe business run by an uncle, Alexander Dowie. After a few months, Dowie left the employment of his uncle and had various jobs through which he advanced his position. At length, he became confidential clerk for the resident partner of a firm that was doing a business of $2 million a year.[2][3] His father was president of the South Adelaide chapter of the Total Abstinence Society in 1867, and John Alexander an active member.[4] Around 1868 at the age of 21, Dowie returned to Edinburgh to study theology. He then returned to Australia and was ordained pastor of a Congregational church at Alma, South Australia (near Hamley Bridge), in 1872. Dowie received and accepted a call to a pastorate at Manly, New South Wales, in 1873, and at Newtown in 1875.[2] He married his cousin, Jane Dowie, on 26 May 1876. They had three children, Gladstone (1877–1945), Jeanie (1879–1885), and Esther (1881–1902).While liberal news loves to share anything they can make up that might be wrong, in the pea soup of what was said, he did have some kind of senility that led him into errors later in his life. However, for hte good he did, we can also learn by so check this out to get the positive side of his ministry

First Woman Licensed to Preach Methodist Church

Margaret Newton Van Cott was born in New York City on March 25, 1830. She was the eldest of four children to William K. Newton and Rachel A. Primrose. Her father was a wealthy real estate broker. Margaret's training was strictly Episcopalian. She met Peter Van Cott in the Winter of 1847 and married him in January 1848. They had two girls, Rachel, who died as an infant on New Year's Day 1852; and Sarah Ellen Conselyea, who was born later the same year. Van Cott was deeply involved in her husband's wholesale pharmaceutical business, actively peddling patent medicines throughout the New York and New Jersey area. After his death, she supported her family with these skills as a successful salesperson. She joined the Methodist Church, and had an experience of conversion which was described thus: "On the way to work one morning she suddenly heard a voice calling on her to turn over her life to the Lord. That moment she stood on the pavement in front of Old John-Street Methodist Episcopal Church, and from heaven light streamed in upon her soul. She was soundly, powerfully converted." Later in a discussion with her husband, Peter, and the pastor of the Duane Street Methodist Episcopal Church whose first name was John, she first uttered the words which, until her last days, were her manifesto of independence, "I believe my tongue is my own, John, and I will use it when I please, where I please, and as I please." In 1866 she visited Durham, New York where she made her first public address in a school-house. She followed with others, and many conversions seemed to give her efforts the divine endorsement. In September 1868 she received an exhorter's license from the Reverend A. C. Morehouse, which empowered her to conduct prayer meetings and to exhort; and on March 6, 1869, the quarterly conference of Stone Ridge, Ellenville, New York, gave her a local preacher's license. In her first year of itinerancy five hundred souls were brought to Christ who became members of the various Churches in the area. On her 50th birthday, in 1880, it was said that she had traveled 143,417 miles and held 9,933 revival meetings. During this time she preached 4,294 sermons. Her remarkable career as an evangelist lasted from 1866 until 1912, by which time she was known throughout the United States. It is said that "She had the stature and bearing of a queen, and a voice of strength and sweetness, such personal gifts as impress and control an audience, and her word has always been attended with excellency of power." Margaret Newton Van Cott died on August 29, 1914 at the Olney Home in Jefferson Heights, Catskill at the age of eighty-four. RELATED STORIES

Anabaptists

Zurich city council insisted that all newborn infants be baptized, which was a serious matter since Grebel’s group believed water baptism was not for infants, but for believers only. And now that Grebel’s wife had just given birth to a new baby, what were they to do? The Grebels refused to baptize their baby. Other parents followed suit. Zwingli met secretly with Grebel’s group, hoping to talk them down off the ledge, but to no avail. Then Zwingli wrote an article accusing his own followers of causing rebellion and unrest. On January 17, 1525, the council sided with Zwingli, ordering anyone refusing to have their child baptized to be expelled. Four days later, on January 21, 1525, as Grebel’s group met at Felix Manz’s house, George Blaurock, a former priest, turned to Conrad Grebel and asked him to baptize him. The first adult water baptism was performed, and the first free church (free from state rule) in modern times was born. The Catholic Church called them Anabaptists, meaning “rebaptizers,” to label them as heretics and begin the process of persecution. They resented the title, preferring simply “Baptists.” After all, since the ceremonial sprinkling of infants was unscriptural, theirs was not a rebaptism but the only baptism. In 1526, the Zurich city council released a mandate stating that anyone who rebaptized another did so under penalty of death by drowning. Evidently if these heretics wanted water, they decided to let them have it! In less than two years, Felix Manz, the man in whose house the first Anabaptist meeting took place, became the first Anabaptist martyr. George Blaurock fled east and was burned at the stake. Within four years, between 4,000 and 5,000 of the Swiss Brethren were executed by fire, water, or sword. Others fled to Germany, Austria, or Moravia, where sympathetic and tolerant princes remained. --except from autho Jeff Oliver's book

Reverand George Gale

Reverand George Washington Gale was famous for saying Charles Finney would never accept Christ. Then after he did, the Reverand was famous for saying to Finney -don't tell who trained you because you know nothing right. Then finally, after the hundreds of throusands found Christ, confessing that he was so glad Finney ignored him because he though if Finney had listened, there likely would never have been a second Awakening

Lydia Root Andrews Finney

"Please remember, it was late March and the omens of Spring were everywhere. And who can look coldly upon the scene where a young man meets for the first time the girl? There was something about the way she moved toward him, something utterly devastating in the swish of her colonial silks as she walked. He instantly realized what he told his Oberlin students a hundred times in after years, "A man's only half a man until he finds his woman, and that's an understatement." The young missionary had a bad time of it in his prayers that night. He could no longer pray as he did when he was first saved. Whenever he tried to talk to his Lord, that girl moved right into the circle, making three. He felt as if this was of sin; and was certain he must be all the more sinful because his heart condemned him not. He tried to pray her out: but she wouldn't go. He feared she was coming between him and God. . He had yet to learn one of the sweetest secrets of life; God never is jealous of the woman He gives. He plans that the man shall love her all the more, to the end that he shall love his Lord even better. Isn't that what the word saith? Give honor unto the wife as being heirs together of the grace of life that your prayers be not hindered! A few weeks later, he rode back to Utica though he felt embarrassed about doing it, and made his way to Whitesboro. She was even better than the dreams he had of her day and night. There she sat in the parlor in her postcolonial dress, which was impotent alas, to hide the fineness of her body. Her hair was a lustrous brown, her eyes a mystic hazel . . . He could hardly wait to say to her what he had rehearsed over and over. At last he stammered, "Lydia, you're only twenty. I'm thirty-two. Would you be content to be the wife of a minister?" She spared him further words. She walked up very close to him, her dainty form beside his tall figure. And she said, "O Charles, I've loved you secretly ever since I was a small girl. I was one of the band that prayed for your conversion. And I am afraid I prayed as much that you might be mine as that you might be saved." (how cool she helped PRAY him into the kingdom!) He said, "We were married in October, 1824!" "There is no point in dwelling upon the belated honeymoon as so many writers do. He planned to go home to make ready for his bride, then, return to bring her back. But on the way, as he watered his horse in a New York village, someone recognized him, a crowd gathered about, and another revival was on. The whole affair had her full approval. But, when at last they were united, she exacted amends for the separation by never being away from him again, save in the hours of motherhood. Everything about the couple warms our hearts, the way they walked from place to place, until they had enough where they could buy a carriage. Then the way they later drove that sparkling surrey all over New England; the way Gotham City loved her, the way she captured Oberlin (when Finney was president of the college)" Hers was a radiant faith that took life by the hand and romped with it. She could carry the deepest reverence in a charming atmosphere of banter. The serious-minded evangelist looked at her over and over and thought, "I wouldn't have her change for all the world." To her, he was an adorable one who needed just such revision as she was prepared to furnish. Take the time when he went overboard, psychologically speaking, and reprimanded the Oberlin choir in his prayer! "O Lord, we trust that Thou hast understood the song which we have been trying to sing, but Thou knowest we could not understand a word of it." Even as he offered this peevish petition, he thought, "Lydia will have something to say about that." She did. The voluminous letter files, which were found in Finney's study at his death in 1875, bear mute evidence of his great love for Lydia. He kept every one of her private papers. You could spend a week going over those charming letters written to Lydia over a century ago. The Man of Like Passions at seventy-five records his own heart break at her going: "That beloved wife of mine died. It was to me a great sorrow. The night after she died, I was lying in my room alone, and some kind Christian friends were sitting in the parlor, watching out the night. I had been asleep awhile, and as I awoke, the thought of my bereavement flashed over my mind with such power! My wife was gone! I should never speak to her again or see her face! My children were motherless! What should I do? I rose instantly from my bed exclaiming, 'I shall be deranged if I cannot rest in God.' The Lord calmed my mind, for that night, but still at times seasons of sorrow would come over me. God asked him do you grieve for yourself or for your wife? Finney said my wife? God said she is doing just fine. All the glories of heaven. stop being so selfish in grieving for yourself and get back out there Finney said, "She died in a heavenly frame of mind. Her rest in God was so perfect. These are experiences in which 1 have lived a great deal since that time He did get out there and was remarried. He would outlive two wives (the second also lived only around 20 years) before marrying a third one, who was in her 50s, and 30 years his junior. That marriage was just over a decade long before he passed. A little later he noted in his woodland walks that May Apples in profusion were springing up at the edge of the timber. The sight of them moved his heart. They always made him remember--Lydia! God help him, he could never get her out of his mind. Every blessed event in their life rushed into memory .... that day when she a lovely girl of twenty stood up to marry him, and he was twelve years her senior! ... she never did get over her sparkling enthusiasm; and he never wanted her to. ... And the May Apples! They made a bright passage in their love life. Each year they laughed like children when they saw the Nile green leaves come up. And the white blossoms setting in the crotch of the stems ... those were glorious days ... but they had to end ... He wept to think how the signs of death came on her young face in 1846 . . . his frantic letters home, "O Lydia, how can I give you up?" . . . her own replies, "Dear Charles, do you love me for my sake, or for Christ's? When I'm gone to be with Him, rejoice in my joy, be happy in my happiness." ... He saw her later, lying there, still in death, and only forty-three. So many stories of her life and liveliness and his love. Her humor. She was so charming. When he was exhausted from the 9 years of extraordinary revival and nonstop travel, he asked her what am I going to do? and after praying her response was "your best days are ahead!" And he was renewed and restored again. She encouraged him. She was his right hand person through all the hardest yet most glorious years --accompanying him on revival to two continents with over 600,000 saved in his meetings to his next seeason where he was a pastor and gave weekly lectures on how to keep revival going. The NYC church they said had non stop fire during his years he was there even just preaching and giving "revival lectures". He was Oberlins President and the local pastor there and even decades later, it was said to go there was to be made a "Finney's man". It was after this Lydia passed though it was said 1000 lights were birthed from the second season where each one was a notable ministry, university, church and if needed a movement.
