Revival Falls on a Lonely Scottish Island

The power of God quickly fell upon other villages until the area was ablaze with holy fire. This was true New Testament revival. Even the shaking of the building paralleled two events in the Book of Acts—Acts 4:31 and 16:26. More importantly, the people were changed (Acts 2:37). Why had it happened? Hector McKennon was a man of unrelenting prayer; Duncan Campbell was a man of unrelenting obedience. Hector pulled the power out of heaven and down upon his island. Duncan was the window through which the power roared. Their combination was unstoppable. Both stood, feet on earth, faces in heaven. Revival!

What happened in the Hebrides is the kind of revival for which the church in our day must pray! Anything less is insufficient. Good as our “church meetings” are, most are only “feathers in the wind”. We need New Testament, Book of Acts, outpourings of the Holy Spirit. Our church pews would not be vacant, altar calls would not be empty if we dared pray with the authority of this Scottish man who seized heaven and shook hell. We need sovereign, sinner-quaking, city-shaking revival! You can become that Hector or Duncan for your church and town. All God seeks is a willing heart. He does not want your ability; He wants only your availability.
