Throughout history, the great revivals were preceded by a “great awakening.” This was a time when men and women of deep faith shook off the slumber of mediocrity and compromise, and sounded a clear call to repentance, holiness, and the love of God for lost humanity.
Did you know the first Great Awakening in our nation started in New Jersey?
In the 1720’s Theodore Frelinghuysen, a minister in New Jersey, was shocked by the deadness of the churches in America. He, along with another New Jersey pastor, Gilbert Tennent, preached the need for conversion and a profound, life-changing commitment to Christ. They saw many make commitments to Christ and eventually news of this awakening reached Jonathan Edwards and George Whitfield. Whitfield was used by the Lord as revival swept through the colonies, preaching to over 30,000 in one meeting.
Why the history lesson? Could it be that God is about to do something even greater?
This July 10 – 13, Eagles’ Wings is hosting the East Coast Conference in New Jersey, close to the very area where Frelinghuysen and Tennet would have preached. Now in its 26th year, ECC has been used by the Lord to sound a prophetic call to the nation.
This year’s theme is “Awake.” If we are indeed on the verge of another great move of God in our land, then it would seem that we must first have a “great awakening.” We are believing that this East Coast Conference is part of that sound of awakening.
You are invited to participate in this unique moment as the Body of Christ from across the nation comes together to cry out for the “greater things” that God wants to do. With special guest Micah Wood from the RAMP, Julie Meyer, the Fitt brothers, and of course Bishop Robert and the Eagles’ Wings team it promises to be a powerful time of fresh outpouring.
