Revivals of the Past

The Azusa Street Revival marks a period in the history of the Pentecostal Movement that is remarkably similar to the long-lasting effects of the San Francisco Earthquake of the same period. It had its warning tremors in the teachings of the manifestation of the Holy Spirit by such preachers as Charles F. Parham, and its aftereffects can be felt in the Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches even today.

The Welsh Revival of the early 20th century was the start of the great Pentecostal Movement throughout Wales and into the United States. Throughout the revival, there was a rise in the manifestation of the baptism by the Holy Spirit and the revival saw a transformation in the lives of many individuals and families. Men of God were used in mighty ways to lead prayer groups and fasting, which lead to changes that can still be felt in Pentecostal churches today.

One of the most significant periods of religious revival began around 1730 in what historians have named The Great Awakening, or the Age of Faith. Following the Glorious Revolution of 1688, all of England worshiped as one denomination under the umbrella of the Church of England. Colonists in the New World followed this doctrine of theology as well. The emphasis was on intellectual theology, making the sermons and services dry and uninspiring.

The Argentine Revival actually began in a little church located in Mendoza and City Bell Bible School. It started spreading across the land, and the Argentine committee for mass evangelism employed the service of a widely known missionary, who was a healing evangelist from the U.S. Unfortunately, that well known evangelist was not available, so sent in his place was Tommy Hicks, who at the time was a little known healing evangelist.
