Pastor-will you repent?

Posted by appolus on February 10, 2019

The most extraordinary thing about the meetings I attended was the extent to which they were absolutely without any human direction or leadership. “We must obey the Spirit,” is the watchword of Evan Roberts, and he is as obedient as the humblest of his followers. The meetings open-after any amount of singing while the congregation is assembling-by the reading of a chapter or a psalm. Then it is go as you please for two hours or more. And the amazing thing is that it does go, and does not entangle in what might seem to be inevitable confusion. Three fourths of the meeting consists of singing. No one uses a hymn book. The last person to control the meeting in any way is Mr Evan Roberts. People pray and sing, give testimony, exhort as the Spirit moves them. As a study of the psychology of crowds, I have seen nothing like it. You feel that the thousand or fifteen hundred persons before you have become merged into one myriad-headed but one single-souled personality. (Journalist from London reporting on what he saw at some of the meetings in the Welsh revival-“The great Welsh Revival pg 69)

Can you see this hard-nosed journalists reaction to being caught up in a meeting where the Holy Spirit is leading and Jesus is preeminent? He talks about the oneness of the crowd, he struggles for words to describe how fifteen hundred people, for hours, can be sharing, without any human leadership at all, yet there is no confusion or disorder, in fact, quite the opposite. He says that people sang and prayed and gave testimonies and exhorted as the Spirit moved them. Now what were the results of this kind of freedom? Several hundred thousand people were saved and it turned Wales upside down. It spread all over the world and in the preceding decades countless millions of souls were saved. Have you ever experienced this kind of freedom? Why do you think that is?

The simplicity of these meetings were astounding. No man was elevated, no worship teams, no technology. In our modern times we now dim the lights, bring on the professional worship team, have dry ice, yeah really, dry ice, and all that to try and create an atmosphere. Yet the presence of God cannot be replicated. Here, one hundred years ago, with no help at all, the Holy Spirit moved in mighty power. The one thing that men had to do was to get out of His way and allow Him to move. Pastors, will you get out of His way and allow Him to move? Might be the scariest thing you ever do. Suspend all of your programs and seek the face of the Living God with prayer and fasting. Humble yourself and repent that your traditions and your position has actually been a stumbling block and an obstacle to the free moving of the Holy Spirit. See if He will not respond.

  1. Many churches now have forgotten that pastor is not the head but Jesus Christ is.
