Loren Sandford: Purifying the Prophetic

Sandford proclaims (dare one say prophesies) fresh or refreshed direction for the church to emphasize in her teaching. He calls for church leadership to reconsider the Toronto Blessing and the Brownsville Revival events. Additionally, he challenges the response of church leadership to emerging revival or renewal movements. Sandford closes with the biblical illustration of Samson—his call to leadership, his sin and final restoration—and insists that a multi-generational approach is needed for the church to experience ongoing revival. He quickly recounts the ebb and flow of the renewal movements of the past half-century and points to the invigorating desire that God has for His Church. He pleads for humility in the Church so that she might receive all that God desires to give.
