Digging the Wells of Revival
The Journey 2006-2013
This journey from 2006 in Wales clearly depicts the call on our lives to re-assign the desolate inheritances and to restore the land through praise, prayer and prophetic intercession keeping in step with the movement of the Holy Spirit's leading at this time as the Lord directs.
Isaiah 49: 8-9 'In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘be free!’
Gill my wife of 26 years was born with a rich family inheritance of itinerant ministers in Wales and in Scotland, whilst I was born 4 miles away from a visionary place where George Fox (the Quaker movement in 1652) had a gret vision of a 'Tsunami of souls dressed in white raiment' being harvested into the Kingdom of God.
Little did I know that in later in life I would visit many wells as God led me too them with the purpose of re-assigning the desolate inheritances to their former Glory.
One of the first Wells of salvation I became interested in was one close to my birthplace Here is an extract from George Fox's biography mentions Pendle Hill (4 miles from birthplace)
A New Era Begins 1652.
As we traveled we came near a very great hill, called Pendle
Hill, and I was moved of the Lord to go up to the top of it; which I did with difficulty, it was so very steep and high. When I was come to the top, I saw the sea bordering upon Lancashire. From the top of this hill the Lord let me see in what places he had a great people to be gathered. As I went down, I found a spring of water in the side of the hill, with which I refreshed myself, having eaten or drunk but little for several days before.*
At night we came to an inn, and declared truth to the man of the house, and wrote a paper to the priests and professors,
declaring the day of the Lord, and that Christ was come to teach people Himself, by His power and Spirit in their hearts, and to bring people off from all the world's ways and teachers, to His own free teaching, who had bought them, and was the Saviour of all them that believed in Him. The man of the house spread the paper abroad, and was mightily affected with the truth. Here the Lord opened unto me, and let me see a great people in white raiment by a river side, coming to the Lord; and the place that I saw them in was about Wensleydale and Sedbergh.
* This spring is still called "George Fox's well."
So I was born right on this well and for many years as a youngster and every time I visit I go up that hill, and it is only in the last few years I have realised its significance.

Below is Pendle Hill the first and second photos and the rest is George Fox's pulpit at Firbank near Sedburgh, Northern England
I will begin at 2006 when the Lord started to create in me a stronger, increased desire for intercession in 2006.
For many years up until 2006 I had been involved in prayer meetings, leading worship, praying in the 'Sowing seeds of revival meetings in Llanelli through the mid 1990's.
Suddenly I met Gail Dixon from Nations Lanelli who was carrying an interesting vision which was sharing at this meeting.
At the time the Lord was reminding me of the cries of the people without water, direction, hope from Isaiah 41:17,18
“The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst.
But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.
Celebration for the Nations begins 2007
The following is an extract fro the Celebration for the Nations vision. see the link in the About us , vision and links tab or click on the following link wwwcelebrationforthenations.org
Come from the four winds! Ezekiel was told to call to the four winds to come and breathe into the slain so that they could rise up, a mighty army.
Blocked wells, dry bones
The 1904 Welsh Revival was the first one since Pentecost to go to the nations. It affected many parts of Europe and Russia and fed into what happened in Asuza Street, USA, as well as impacting Korea, India and other nations mentioned above.
The First World War, saw revived nations fighting each other just ten years later. The Japanese invasion of Korea did the same thing. Spiritually Wales, England, France, North Korea, and many other parts of the world touched by this move, have become blocked up wells. The bones of believers are scattered, their dreams unfulfilled. Yet, like Abel, by faith they still speak, even though they have died..
Can the well be unblocked? Forward by Gail Dixon from Nations, Llanelli.
In 2004, the centenary of the Welsh Revival, I had a vision. I have been involved in Christian ministry for over 30 years, and though I have often had pictures and impressions from the Lord, I have only ever had two visions. The first one led me to move to North Africa where I worked for a number of years, and the second one is what has made me so sure that we must call together this Celebration.
I saw sparkling water the colour of sapphire, and it had light within itself. I tried to touch it, but something clear as crystal blocked my hand. I looked up and saw people from many other nations also trying to reach the water. None of us could. I cried out to the Lord, asking why we couldn't touch it. I heard him say,
'It is impossible from your side, but if you sing, the water will rise up and break out.'
At the same time this scripture came into my heart:
“Gather the people together and I will give them water...
'Spring up O well!
Sing about it,
about the well the princes dug,
that the nobles of the people sank'” (Numbers 21:16-18).
The nobles were our forefathers who faithfully prayed and saw God come with power.
The Lord is calling us together to sing to the water, so it will spring up in our generation, and transform hearts and lives with the power of the kingdom of heaven.
We are calling to believers from the four winds. Come and breathe on these slain. Come and sing to the wells that our fathers dug. We gather in obedience to the Lord, that as we sing, the water will spring up again in our generation.
This began a yearly event in Llanelli which has caused the opening of some wells in the area as we have faithfully served the Lord in the vision. There have been SEVEN years of Celebration for the Nations in Wales from 2007.
Since then 2 in in South Korea and finally this year 2016 it is to be held on Mount Carmel, Israel in July through August.
In addition to those Celbrations there have been Monday night prayer and intercession meeting we have been involved in for 10 years!
My experience as well as many others at this gathering was that the Lord increased giftings, intercession, released revelation and caused much repentance and re-alignment with His word. apurifyiung fire came upon the body of believers.
I remember feeling the Father heart of God breaking in an incessant river through me as I prayed for some young Koreans who had asked for 'More of Jesus'. The Lord answered them and said that if we were all to come to him like these then He would not fail to pour out His blessing and power upon us like Mighty Living Rivers of water.
Celebration 2013 is photos 1,3,4 and Celebration 2008 is number 2
Florida Prophetic Healing outpouring - April 2008 Greater glory poured out.
At this time I had been praying in the mornings in Nations Llanelli and the Lord promised me that He was pouring out greater glory in these days (April 2nd 2008). Then the day after He said that if I sought Him with all of my heart He would release upon my life a healing prophetic annointing that I had never seen before.
After the first Celebration we experienced such an increase in intercession, worship, prayer and prophecy, but God told me that this would far exceed that.
Jn 14:12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
The Florida healing outpouring started on April 2nd 2008 and this was the stirring the Lord had promised. I ended up going to Dudley to Revival Fires where I was mightily impacted by the Holy Spirit. Everything thing became different. Intercession, a heart for the lost, prophetic flow all increased and the Celebration for the Nations in July-August 2008 was a real breakthrough in the Supernatural like we had not experienced before.
There were healings, must most of all a deep healing work at the emotional level occurred particularly among the Koreans.
We prayed as a prayer team pretty much 12 hours a day for all who requested it.
Thank You Lord.
Stand in the Gap - November 2008 - Stand in the Gap
When I attended a Bill Johnson conference in Dudley at Revival fires England in November 2008 I heard the Lord asking me (whilst I was weeping in intercession) if there was anyone would 'Stand in the Gap' for the local neighbourhood (Swansea, Llanelli, South Wales), particularly those trapped in addictions and life controlling problems.
This came with weeping and a deep intercession by the Spirit of God, which made me oblivious to anything else going on in ther conference, (someone was preaching at the time, but I was just weeping).
I sensed that the Lord was telling me to quit any unnecessary activity and just to pray and intercede in this next season.
New Vision - Blow the Shoffar - January 2009 - Moriah Chapel - Loughor
In early January 2009 I attended a very small meeting of intercessors (including Gail from Nations) in Moriah Chapel in Loughor (where the first night of the 1904 Welsh Revival began on October 31st).
An intercessor from Egypt (with us in Moriah) had been given a word for Wales from Hosea 10:12. "Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unploughed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you".
She had been praying with her group and the Lord impressed upon them this word whilst praying over the nations of the world. She saw like a hard crust in the spiritual atmosphere over wales. This block would not allow water (of the word) and oil (of the Spirit) through to reach the people needing revival, refreshing and awakening. She felt that worship, and prophetic intercession would break up this hardened ground and allow The Word and the Spirit to touch the land once more bringing revival and awakening.
On this occasion the Lord had given me these scriptures from Jeremiah 6:16,17
16 "This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
17 I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen.’ Next I blew the shoffar in the schoolhouse of Moriah and the power of God hit us. WOULD WE WALK IN THE GOOD WAYS, THE ANCIENT PATHS? WOULD WE LISTEN TO THE TRUMPET CALL OF THE LORD?
I blew the shoffar for the first time and the power of God fell on us all . SO I DID IT AGAIN AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED.
Psalm 85 was then read out by one of the leaders alongside Evan Roberts grave with weeping by the Spirit of God.
God was on the move!
Moriah Chapel, Loughor, the start of the Welsh Revival involving Evan Roberts, 31st October 1904
Jan 19th 2009 A VISION of the Fire of God! -Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Canada.
A few days later I received a vision "I AM SENDING FIRE ON SASKATCHEWAN AND "EVERYWHERE YOU SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS I AM SENDING fIRE FROM THE NORTH" and this triggered off a great journey.
Jan 2009. Divine revelation of a Revival Well in Saskatoon Saskatchewan
After this prophetic word and fision where I had seen a flame of Fire on Saskatchewan (I pinpointed it to Saskatoon on the South Saskatchewan river) and then up to Alaska then many others across Northern Canada I realised the Lord was alerting me to what He was going to do.
Back home I googled 'Saskatoon Revival' and 2 revivals came up!
1948 - Birthplace of the latter rain movement student revival and
1971 - CANADIAN REVIVAL - This Revival was birthed when a pastor (Bill McLoed) prayed for revival and younsters joined him and after 5 years revival broke out!
Read the account on this link:- http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=29901&forum=40
God was saying that if I was willing to pray and do what He said then revival would come in Wales.
As a result of these visions received early January 2009 I ended up going to a conference in Saskatoon Saskatchewan in May 2009.
Over the next 16 months the Lord began to speak to me about the timing of a great awakening and revival. Here is the word given over the 16 months period from Jan 2009 to May 2010 and released on 23/05/2010.
See the Prophetic word 2009-2013 tab on the menu for the full word.
May 2009 Match and Coal in Saskatoon Saskatchewan conference in Canada
I attended the 5th Fire and Glory conference in Saskatoon. At the end of it a lady flew in from across Canada on the last night of the conference and God had told her to deliver 2 items to someone in this conference. She realised they were for me as I was the only one from Wales in the room. She presented them to me.
One of the items was a piece of shiney black anthracite COAL (WELSH COAL) and the other was a LARGE MATCH. In years gone by Welsh coal has been taken to other lands and it has taken revival with it! Welsh anthracite is the purest hottest burning coal in the world.
I felt that God was saying to me that if I was to pray like He told me to then I would see revival in Wales, and through these prayers then it would ignite the coals of revival once more in the land.
Pictures of the saskatoon Conference and the second one was Marlene who brought the Welsh coal and a match from Thunder Bay.
July 4-5th 2009 - Thunder on the Mountain! Pembrokeshire -Intercessory First Nation's drum
Shortly after coming back from Canada I received an e-mail from a First nations lady intercessor in Thunder Bay. She had been praying and interceding with a 'clean' hand drum for 3 years for revival to break out amongst the First Nation people in Canada in 1993. By 1996 a local pastor put on a conference called 'Fan into flame to the beat of the drum' which caused 120 First Nation peoples to gather to drum, worship and intercede for revival. This broke something in Canada at that time.
So having heard that I was going to a Pembrokeshire event called 'Thunder on the Mountain' she and other intercessors sent this drum for me to use at the 'Thunder on the Mountain' event.
This event was headed up by Ray Hughes and a group of drumming intercessors. Continuous worship and intercession went on for 24 hours in a filed near the Preseli Hills West Wales.
I was able to play the drum with them all. It was yet another step of openining up the wells at the source of the Cleddau river, which means Sword river in English.
A report of the day said:-
In spite of a few showers, clear skies prevailed above and clear cries of worship, intercession and prophetic declarations prevailed in this farmer's field below. With marvelous views of green countryside in central Pembrokeshire, the heavens resounded with worship and warfare, dance and triumph of God's glorious Kingdom in this land.
This 24 hour event is going on through the night as I write this, and helps bring the wind of the Spirit to fill the sails of our Captain's ship. Organized by a local church and a group of worshippers and intercessors from the U.S., together with a host of worship teams from south and West Wales, well over a hundred people turned out to give this event a powerful impact on the land. The mood was jubilant and the music uplifting, dispelling any doubt that God is sovereignly at work in this place once again!
First Nation drum and prayers for Welsh Speaking Welsh people at the Wells in Wales
I had the privilege of using it at the event above then around various revival sites in Wales along with Welsh speaking Elaine.
We prayed at various revival sites for the indigenous Welsh people to be touched by the Lord, the gatekeepers of the land over a few months including the 2009 Celebration for the Nations
The Lord listens to every prayer and sees every act of obediance.

July-August 2009 - Celebration for the Nations
This event of 8 days of international praise, worship and intercession took place just a few weeks after the Thunder on the mountain. More 'Singing to the wells, to Jesus the Well of Salvation'
Jun 2010 - Howell Harris revelation and Well of fiery impartation in 1735.
At the end of May we just ended up at Langorse lake near Brecon, a place we had not been to for 13 years. On the shores of the lake a heard the Spirit of God saying that 'there is something I want you to pick up from this place'.
I could not see any church, monuments or history there but later we arrived at Trevecca College just up the road.
There was a plaque with the name of Howell Harris of Trevecca on it. I did not know who he was.
Some 3 weeks later in an intercesion meeting I was deeply stirred about praying for the lost, to such a degree that I felt I must look at some old evangelists around Wales.
I came across Howell Harris on the website and found out that he had been saved in a nearby church in Talgarth.
More than that the sermon extract below by Martin Lloyd Jones gave an account of Howell Harris's fiery encounter in the church at Llangasty on the shores of Llangorse lake. WOW
This spot was exactly opposite the place where God had whispered to me that there was something to pick up there. The church was hidden in the trees!
So I went up there to pick up the annointing from the well and had a deep encounter with the Lord there. This date was exactly June 18th 275 years on.
Here is an extract from the text that I had read:-
'Howell Harris was now converted, he knows that his sins are forgiven and he has lost his burden. But still more important is what happened to him over three weeks later, on June 18th, when he had a further experience. He was reading the Scripture, and praying in the tower of the Llangasty church, where he had given himself to God, when he received a further experience which eclipsed all previous experiences.
It is from that moment that this man began to be the flaming Evangelist of whom we speak, and whose memory we commemorate this evening. As a result of this experience he felt a compassion for souls and a sorrow for all people who were in sin. It was this experience which led to his evangelistic activity.
At first he just began to visit people who were sick, and to read to them out of certain books, The Practice of Piety and other books which had helped him. But he read with such power that people were profoundly affected.
After a while, whenever it was heard that he was going to read out of a book in any sick room or anywhere else, people crowded together to listen to him; and this went on in a cumulative manner until eventually the crowds became so great that he began to preach to them in the open air.
Great crowds began to gather, and large numbers of people were brought under conviction, and many were brought to conversion'.

Also see the first page where there is a 'Links Tab called Howell Harris
Yes we can go to the old wells, the open heavens as the Holy Spirit leads and pick up the annointings of old saints.
Below are pictures of the Church at Llangasty where Howell Harris was so deeply impacted.
Jul 2010 - Celebration for the Nations and Pisgah Chapel - Vision and timing
A couple of months after releasing the prophetic word on 23/05/2010 see (Prophetic word 2009-2013 tab) I felt that the Lord wanted me to start a prayer and worship meeting with the view to building a Prayer/Worship House by meeting once a week as Bill Mcloed did in Saskatoon.
It's aim would be to pray for a great awakening and revival to take place in Wales as in days gone by. I knew it had to be in Loughor the Lord said to me which has been a 'Thin place' where heaven has opened before.
I drove around Loughor and came across this small chapel called Pisgah Chapel in July of 2010. I knew nothing about this Chapel's history .
Outside this chapel I felt that I heard Him say "Wouldn't this place be a good place to pray".
I imagined 24/7 written over the place, a 24/7 prayer house.
A week later in the middle of the Celebration For the Nations, Singing to the wells of Wales gathering I bumped in to someone who knew all about Pisgah Chapel. He gave me some contact details because the chapel had closed down.
This sparked off a journey which resulted in us having permission to use the chapel for prayer.
Dec 2010 - Pisgah House of Prayer was started.
On Dec 18th 2010 we were allowed to use the chapel for a prayer meeting once a week.
The Lord had previously told me to "ask for the mountain' - like Caleb did" and later I found out that Pisgah peak is on mount Nebo where Moses was allowed to see all the promised land.
Evan-Roberts before he came back to Loughor, pre revival saw a vision of 100,000 souls entering into the promised land.
He must have named it Pisgah because he could see the promised land of revival and prayed, preached and entered in. What a place to pray from and into the promised land of revival and awakening.
How about digging that well with the Haggai promises of a stirred remnant getting it done? Is it possible?
May 2011 - Prayer venue moved to St Michael's hall just on the Loughor side of the Loughor bridge
Due to the structural deterioration of the old Pisgah chapel during the harsh winter of 2010 where the frost and ice had taken its toll, we could no longer meet in it any more. See the first picture above of Dec 2010. God had given us a word to pray and see its restoration come to pass so we continued to meet. I still looked after the place and liased with the current leaseholders who shored the walls up and prevented further deterioration.
We continued to meet weekly in St Michael's hall Loughor once a week for another 4 or 5 years where we continued to believe that God would restore the old Pisgah Chapel and would restore the Revival that broke out in 1904!
Isaiah 58:12. 'Our people will rebuild the ancient ruins. We will restore the age old foundations, and we will be called 'repairer of the broken walls and restorer of streets with dwellings.
Isaiah 49: 8-9 In the time of my favour I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘be free!’
June 2012 - Visitors of 17 Canadian intercessors from the Apostolic Church in Canada.
The coals of two Nations meet!
Pastor Janet was born in Wales and was brought up on stories of the Welsh Revival from her grandmother. Her mother was present and was 80 years old and had emigrated when Janet was 12 from the Apostolic church in Wales with her late Father David Morris
This group came to claim their legacy and inheritance.
Remarkably one of their party had been instructed by the Lord to bring some Canadian coal and find some Welsh coal to burn them together to represent the forging and interaction of the anointings of two nations. WOW
After 3 hours praying and worshipping in Moriah Chapel Loughor we went to Pisgah Chapel.
The historical tour guide told us that the founder of the Apostolic Church in Pen-Y-Groes wa ssaved in Pisgah Chapel in 1914 approx. In later years he went back there and was prayed for and received the impartation of fire in Pisgah in the late 1920's. This was the root of the Apostilic denomination which is in 60 nations of the world.
Janet and her husband John and the group had come to the old well, the foundation of their church (even though they did not know that) and we were asked to impart to them.
When we prayed on the old coal mine site in Loughor and burnt the 2 coals together, the Holy Spirit fell and everyone was overcome on the ground for a time. There have been great reports of what the Lord has done since their visit in their church in Canada.
The significance about Welsh coal is that when it was taken to other nations from this revival land, revival broke out in those nations it was taken to. Welsh coal is the purest in the world and when set alight it burns with the hottest brightest flame. So does a pure Body of Christ. So receiving Welsh coal and a match in Saskatchewan was not too crazy after all.

May 2012 - OLYMPIC TORCH PRAISE BUS - Carriers of the Fire (2012)
In 2012 we were asked to put together a worship team to participate in the vision of a praise bus that was organised by Escalls Chapel in Lands End Cornwall.
This awesome vision was to carry the flame of the Lord's praise ahead of the Olympic Torch which was travelling within 10 miles of 95% of the population of the UK ahead of the Olympic Torch route.
2 - 3 bands were to play in rotation. Our leg of the journey was on day 8 which was on Pentecost Sunday 2012 travelling from Llanelli to Aberystwyth via Carmarthen, Haverfordwest, Fishguard Cardigan and Aberaeron.
We sang, played and praised the King across the land and over the people. Waves of the Holy Spirit were felt as we raised up the name of Jesus the King of Glory.
Wow what an honour!
More Spiritual Wells revealed 2013
May 2013 - The remote spark that triggered a fiery revival 1797 = Soar Y Mynydd, (Soar on the mountain).
On a wet day in May travelling across the barren land near tregaron on the way to
Aberystwyth we came across a wonderful chapel in the middle of nowhere. We stopped and tried the door and to our amazement it was open.
As soon as we entered the power of God fell on me and I could barely stand up. Wow, what must have happened here, it must have been powerful. the presence of God was overwhelming.
There was an information sheet there wich read:-
"This fellowship started in 1747. In April 1779 a man of ordinary preaching talent but had great piety preached and a fire was kindled that Sunday afternoon in the congregation as they became deeply concerned for their everlasting safety.
The congregation then broke out crying and shouting in an uncommon way, religious and irreligious together, among them two of the sons of the house, and they continued crying and praising until daybreak on Monday.
Daniel Rowlands heard of this and went up the mountain to the chapel the following week where God moved in a more powerful way.
On his return home he said "It was a heath fire that would spread abroad." And it did it spread around the mountain and into the South and North of Wales, and thousands were brought earnestly to seek everlasting life.
Many of these touched by these fires met in various Chapels like this one Soar-y-Mynydd and the one in Langeitho where Daniel Rowlands lived a few miles away.
Many took it abroad. "LORD LIGHT THE FIRES AGAIN"
How amazing is the Lord's leading. If He reveals it to you YOU CAN HAVE IT!. Yes Lord send the fire again and let us walk in those fires of revival once more.
Below are pictures of Soar Y Mynydd:-
Some 3 weeks later we arrived at Soar again for a monthly service in the Welsh language. The preacher was talking about Caleb, and his wholehearted faith, being a 'Father of the faith' example for us to follow.
And again in July we took some Canadian friends, one with Welsh heritage to the chapel and God impacted them mightily. Praise God.
May 2013 - Capel Ggwnfil- Llangeitho - Daniel Rowland - Son of Thunder!
The same day as Soar Y Mynydd we ventured to Daniel Rowland's Chapel at Llangeitho. He was mightily touched by the Soar Y Mynydd revival as mentioned above.
He also teamed up with Howell Harris, William Williams-the Great Hymn writer - 'Bread of Heaven' or 'Guide me thou O Great Jehovah' was one of his hymns.
Thousands came to hear Rowland preach here for years, especially for Association meetings when they also had the chance to hear other great preachers.
All through this time Rowland was preaching with enormous power and anointing. An Englishman heard him speak, not understanding a word of Welsh, he writes, “I heard much of him, but it could never have entered into my heart to conceive of the mighty energy and power that accompanied his preaching. His words did fly like darts.” Everywhere there were reports of the power and effectiveness of his preaching.
Rowland is still preaching powerfully, Howel Harris writes in September, “You would all wonder at what we daily see and hear. As for my part I can say I never had such power as I have now every day, mostly to preach. Whole multitudes are under concern. Many of them that were enemies of my doctrine, and way of preaching, do now experimentally understand what He enables me to deliver them from the pulpit. Some confess that they went from home on Sundays with an intent to go to another place of worship, but were, they know not how, carried to Llangeitho.”
Whitefield wrote on hearing Rowland, “The power of God at the Sacrament, under the ministry of Mr Rowland, was enough to make a person’s heart burn within him. At seven in the morning I have seen, perhaps, 10,000 from different parts, in the midst of the sermon, crying ‘glory,’ ‘praise,’ ready to leap for joy.”
Daniel Rowlands was at loggerheads with the clergy and was slung out of the Anglican church. After his expulsion from the Anglican Church, Rowland’s followers built this chapel, although it has been re-built since. The original building was approximately where the statue is today. Christmas Evans wrote. ‘I see him now entering in his black gown through a little door from the outside of the pulpit.
Revivals took place here in the chapel in 1780, 1790, 1797, 1811, 1813, 1819, 1824 and 1832. One of these revivals happened when William Williams had brought new hymns out, it just broke out when they were sung.
The greatest revival happened in a field nearby where 20,000 gathered to receive conversion and a baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Yet again the Lord led us to this place where angels gathered and many men were set on fire to preach the gospel at home and abroad. You can see the chapel and a photograph of the meeting of the New Methodist ministers including George Whitfield. This picture is in the vestry at this chapel.
We revisited this location with a group in 2014 and the Holy Spirit fell on us with such power on all of us 20 people as I read the old revival stories from that place. Supernatural power just hit us, there was weeping, laughing an inability to stand. I had to hold on to the pulpit. I was not preaching just recounting the old stories of when God had moved in power. 10 revivals in 160 years.
See 2014! The picture when I was in the pulpit bowed down is when God's power hit us all simultaneously. The door behind is where the people would push through Daniel Rowlands to preach. Outside the door is the ground level.
July-August 2013 The final Welsh 10 day 'Celebration for the Nations'
This Celebration For the Nations was enormous and completed a cycle of 7 years. There were 10 days in total.
The theme of the Celebration was based around the wedding feast of the Lamb. Revelation 19 vs 6 and 7.
6 Then I heard again what sounded like the shout of a vast crowd or the roar of mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder:
“Praise the Lord!“Praise the Lord! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.
The full passage:-
Songs of Victory in Heaven Rev 19
1 After this, I heard what sounded like a vast crowd in heaven shouting,
“Praise the Lord! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God. 2 His judgments are true and just. He has punished the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality. He has avenged the murder of his servants.”
3 And again their voices rang out:
“Praise the Lord! The smoke from that city ascends forever and ever!”
4 Then the twenty-four elders and the four living beings fell down and worshiped God, who was sitting on the throne. They cried out, “Amen! Praise the Lord!”
5 And from the throne came a voice that said, “Praise our God, all his servants, all who fear him, from the least to the greatest.”
6 Then I heard again what sounded like the shout of a vast crowd or the roar of mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder: “Praise the Lord! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.
8 She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear.” For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God’s holy people.
9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” And he added, “These are true words that come from God.”
10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said, “No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers and sisters who testify about their faith in Jesus. Worship only God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.
There was a picture towards the end of an alters with coals on it unlit until now. All it needed was the match or the ignition from heaven to light the fire in the land.
I played the Canadian intercession guitar I had been given from Canada with the Celebration mobile Korean team at the end of the Celebration. Also from Canada came a flag signed by all the fellowship in Canada where Louise, Nic, Henry had come from.
We also wrote on a flag for them to take back to Canada.
Here are a couple of pictures from this event and also our Pisgah House of Prayer meeting that week
The Celebration ended with the Lord communicating a few things to us about being married to the land of Wales because His delight was in her.
Isaiah 62:4 No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married.
Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land." Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride.
Finally hope in an answer to these verses in Psalm 85
9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. 10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 1 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
July-August 2012 - Celebratation For the Nations
Persistence and Perserverence are the watch words now
We kept obeying the Lord in the vision of international worshippers seeking to release the wells in Wales and for an outpouring of the Lord's favour once more. Another 8 days of international worshippers at Celebratation For the Nations gatherings in Llanelli.
This yearly celebration was the sixth one. We were still praying for the Lord to restore Pisgah Chapel, to restore all the old wells of salvation in wales to affect the Nations once more.
Weekly Nations meetings were continued believing that God would release the rivers of living water again.
We continued to meet once a week as Pisgah House of Prayer on Saturdays in St Michaels Hall in Loughor, believing that the Lord would restore Pisgah Chapel and the previous revivals in this area and Wales if we prayed for 5 years as the word said.
This was the 3rd year of praying.
