Ninety-Three year old Alwyn Williams speaks at the Newcastle Baptist Tabernacle about the Welsh Revival. Alwyn's father saw the effects of revival, whilst working as a miner in the United Kingdom in the beautiful country of Wales.
"Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation"
After the wall was built under Nehemiah, in hearing of God's Word His people are awakened and revived. We note 10 responses to God's Word, that led to a spiritual revival. A deep awareness of God, confession of sin and Godly sorrow are precursors to real blessing.
Once the rebuilding work was over, Nehemiah organised the Lord's people. We consider 5 priorities he had to restore the city of God. A wonderful spiritual awakening occurs. The people call for God's word to be read, knowing their sins would be revealed. They understood, their hearts were moved, and lives changed.
Isaiah 40 v 26-31 -- From Weakness to Strength
Isaiah draws our attention to three great truths about God - truths which, if taken to heart, will replace our discouragement with hope, and replace our weakness with His Strength.

Trouble will always be present. Yet, the saint of God must learn the fundamentals of spiritual endurance. They must seek the Word, stand in its promises, and wait for God's provision. He will not fail His saints.
In every believer's life there are times we feel dry, where the Lord seems distant. The Psalmist asks the Lord to bring revival to his soul. This is the Holy Spirit's work. It comes when we ask "wilt thou not revive us again?" and hear God's Word to us.
Much is being said of late about revival with revivals supposedly breaking out in certain locales. Of course if God's Word is not the central focus of one's life or any supposed revival there cannot be a and will not be one. Listen to the 3 steps to begin loving God's Word that could surely lead to a revival for you!
We live in a culture that worships youth and, sometimes, marginalizes the aged. It might surprise you to find that things weren't much different in David's time. Join us as we look at David's struggles with his advanced age and what he did about it.
