While news media outlets jammed the airways with political rhetoric, something powerful was happening in the sleepy town of Burlington, North Carolina; a revival. Lead Evangelist C.T. Townsend talked about the miraculous event that saw thousands attend daily, and over 1250 accept Jesus Christ.
“What a joy; what an honor, and what a privilege to see God working in this day. I’ve never seen anything like it, and this meeting has changed my life”, said Townsend.
“It has changed everything about me,” he continued. “And I am so thankful and honored for what God has done and what God is doing — not just here in Burlington, but the aftershock that has literally shook across this nation.”
Although the services have ended, Townsend said the work is not over.
“I believe that Jesus is soon to return, and we all have to do our job to seek as many souls as we possibly can before His return,” Townsend said. “I’m believing by faith along with many other people that Burlington is not the end, but it is the beginning of what God is doing in America.”
“We are trusting God because we know that revival is the only answer that we have,” he said. “Another Democrat or another Republican, no matter how good they are, is not going to fix the problems that we are in.”
The revival started with a church service at New Hope Baptist Church on Mother’s Day, and grew to using a large commercial tent. It has reported the only reason the revival was ended was because the tent owner needed his tent back for another event. Planning for the future, organizers formed a tent purchasing committee, which will oversee the purchase of a new tent and all accessories.
“God’s people miraculously raised almost $340,000 this past week in efforts to purchase a brand new tent,” “What a mighty God we serve,” he also wrote in a text.
The Burlington revival could be the beginning of a widespread revival in America. As outlined so frequently through the chronicles of Judaism and Christianity, God will breathe new life into a land, even if it has flat lined. The general prerequisite is that the Lord is petitioned by his people. Let us make calling upon the Lord to heal our land a priority, because He is our only true means of rescue.
