Azusa Street revival
I noticed over the last few days that Jeremiah Johnson, a speaker who travels a little bit and tells churches how happy he is they give money was not in my feed. The reason was figured out quickly: for some reason, he blocked me.
The Church of God (Cleveland, Tn) is a very interesting group of people. They are a Pentecostal movement that came around the same time as the Azusa Street Revival but they were not part of that outpouring. They had their own movement going on and later received greatly from what became known as the “Azusa of the East Coast” [...]
There is a reason that I support Bill Johnson and his ministry. It is not because I think that Bethel Church is beyond correctness. I have voiced my own concerns over how the school is run and some of the eschatology that is trumped from Redding.
Most of us know the names like William Seymour and Charles Fox Parham but another leader that you might not know about is a man by the name of William Durham.
Dr. Tim Hill claims in an article on Faith News Network that revival is breaking out in the Church of God. What we have on our hands is a gross misrepresentation of revival and it actually means. Yes, there are some Pentecostals that do not have a clue about what is and is not revival.
I was looking around Youtube a week ago and found an odd video of Perry Stone, the Church of God evangelist based in Cleveland, Tennessee talking Valley of Dry Bones.

William was a man that was deeply touched and he was living in the revelation of Jesus as the Hope of the Nations. He was hungry for more of God. He lived to study the Bible and he wanted everything God had for him. Seymour did not have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit yet but he was hungry for more; that’s a great place to start in [...]
I am a Pentecostal. I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to save, heal, deliver, and fill. I am washed by the blood of Jesus but I am finding too are closer to brainwashed. This is very concerning to me. This is one reason I raise questions about World Revival Church in Kansas City and even IHOP University but it goes alot better [...]
