Scottish Revival

By Editorial Staff
Published March 31, 2008

EDINBURGH, Scotland (FR) – A billboard in the Scottish capital city of Edinburgh reads “Scotland Awakens to God! Thirty Years of Decline Are Over!” One might expect such a message to be broadcast from a small, enthusiastic church. But this billboard sits in front of the headquarters of the Church of Scotland. Christian spokesmen within the mainline denomination as well as evangelical leaders from other churches all agree that Scotland is now experiencing the beginnings of a national revival.

Scotland has experienced revival in every century since 1500. According to church leader David Anderson, “Apart from minor and more limited awakenings such as the Welsh Revival of 1904 and the Lewis Revival of 1949-50, this is in fact the first century since the Reformation when Britain has not known the outpouring of the Spirit.” Anderson then added, “Is this mere coincidence, or could it be that in the last decade of the 20th century we are going to witness across the face of our land a movement of God on a greater scale than any experienced in a previous time?”

Although church attendance has been on the decline in Scotland in recent years, reports are now surfacing that the growth of Christian churches and ministries is now accelerating. This has been accompanied by a renewal of interest in prayer for national revival. For example, plans are now being implemented to set up weekly and monthly prayer breakfasts for Christians in each of the 56 local government districts in Scotland. In Edinburgh each month hundreds of Christians meet together to pray for the city and revival. Just last Easter the city’s largest concert hall was filled with more than 2000 Christians praying for revival.

Anderson, who leads a congregation in the Gorgie area of Edinburgh, reports that an early morning prayer meeting in his church – which began in January of this year – has now moved to a large hall because of the increased interest in prayer. Miraculous events have accompanied the movement; in Sutherland, a mother was recently converted after hearing her small son pray for her for almost two hours. In the Highlands, a man with no church connection was literally “smitten by the power of God and deeply convicted of his sins.”

Anderson, who released this report added, “The fact is that, during the past 20 years and all over Scotland, in villages, towns, and cities, hundreds of praying groups have sprung up on a scale unprecedented in this century.”

I am a Baptist minister from the state of Oklahoma, USA. I have been praying for Scotland for several years. I have written two books on revivals in Scotland. “Catch the Wind” concerns the Lewis Revival of 1949-53. “The Land God Chose to Love “ concerns ten glorious revivals on the Isle of Lewis in the last 180 years. May God send revival to Scotland and to America.

I am the Founder of the American Fellowship of Home Churches. The Lord recently sent us back to Scotland, where my wife is from, in order to check out the spiritual landscape of the nation. The Lord showed us some exciting things that are happening in the spirit and is causing a hunger and thirst to rise up in His people once again. Something which He showed us back in 2004 as well. We are excited and are praying and interceding for the church there. We are also working with some people there in order to encourage and support them for what is about to happen. The Lion of Scotland is arising and will be all that the Father has called them to be. Be Blessed!!!

There is an expectation and faith for Revival! The former and latter rains that will see the Lord’s return. Scotland will arise to be a light, example and witness of the Glory of God.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Running time: 85 minutes

Packaged in a double DVD case with the updated The Abortion Matrix DVD.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes
