‘Is God preparing us for something?’: Reports of move of God at 7-day revival meeting in Kentucky

by Heather Preston

A Christian university in America has been speaking of a revival taking place at its Kentucky campus.

Asbury University has been the site of continuous prayer and worship since last Wednesday - following an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

It’s thought to have started following one young man’s confession of sin at the campus chapel following a service – which lead to people joining a meeting which to date has not stopped.

There have been lines to get in the door of Asbury’s Hughes Auditorium as churches and other campuses have brought busloads of people to join in sharing testimonies, praising God in worship and bringing scripture in the ongoing revival.

Trevor Baker is the apostolic leader of Christian ministry Revival Fires.

He tells Premier God is using this 'awakening' to lead people to repentance.

“I believe there's a clear sense of God's presence coming amongst his people. And with that, He is revealing, I believe something of the goodness and the kindness of God.

“Paul says in Romans 2:4 ‘It's the goodness and the kindness of God, that brings us to a place of repentance.’ We're seeing this as people are worshipping Him.

“They're just getting delighted with the presence of God again, they're finding that God is for them, not against them.

“They're beginning to realise that this kindness is leading them into a deeper experience of getting their lives in alignment with his present.

Baker says the fact that this revival is not lead by a particular denomination and has continued throughout the night raises his expectation for a move of God.

“God has chosen to come into this campus, a group of young people. Is he preparing us for something?

“Asbury university now will give the church a heightened awareness. That when we come together, (that's what I'm praying) that there will be this heightened awareness that God's presence is here with us - not coming, but here with us.

“I feel that there is going to be some spontaneous dropping in of the Holy Spirit, where there are communities that are giving him room to come and to minister to their hearts.”

Asbury University experienced another revival in 1970, said to have swept its campus and then the nation.
