I believe that something unique is happening there. I believe that moments like these can be refreshing and renewing. People from the 1970 revival are coming back and renewing their vision. Young people are getting a glimpse of the the kingdom.
But, I also believe that this event in and of itself will only find real value if lives are truly changed and if in the years ahead those that are there now in this mountain top type experience are living lives transformed by the Spirit of God and making a difference in whatever part of the world God leads them to.
The story feels good now and is encouraging, but the true test and greatest value is not in what happened in the last two weeks or what happens in the next couple. The true test is when we look back years from now and we answer the question, "What difference did this revival have in making disciples of believers and bringing people to Jesus who may never have heard the Good News otherwise?"
