From Beaches to Prisons, Holy Spirit Jolts America Into Revival

by | Apr 27, 2023 | Prophetic & Revival, Revival

There’s a whole lot of baptism going on these days. As CBN News has reported, signs of revival have been ongoing around the U.S. since February when a spiritual awakening began at Asbury University.

Initially, the awakening seemed to mainly be happening among college students. But the latest evidence is being seen in the form of hundreds of salvations and baptisms at churches across the country in just the last two weeks alone, not to mention over the past two months.

From scores of souls being baptized at churches, to dozens being baptized at one prison, pastors across the U.S. are declaring that God is on the move.

Pastor Eric Petree of Citygate Church in Cincinnati, Ohio posted online, “Over the past two weeks at Citygate we have seen 650 people give their life to Jesus, 93 baptized and yesterday hundreds of people filled the altars seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit.”

“REVIVAL IS HERE!” he proclaimed

Sam Rainer, lead pastor at West Bradenton Baptist Church in Florida, tweeted on Sunday, “Today we baptized 21 people at the beach. God is good! What a blessing!”

At the Crossroads Church Jersey Shore Campus, 17 people professed their faith in Christ through public baptism.

At the University of Houston, several students chose to be baptized in a public fountain after a Bible study.

And Regent University here in Virginia Beach just baptized nine students last week.

A revival event was reported in mid-April in Damascus, Maryland at Difference Makers Church with non-stop worship that lasted for several days, with young people dedicating their lives to Christ.

Jeremy Tucker posted the following photo, saying, “Worship has been going for 41 hours straight! Young people from churches all over Maryland/Virginia/DC are gathering to unite the bride of Christ for non-stop worship! We thought we’d never see it, but the Holy Spirit is finally breaking out in Maryland! Come Lord Jesus!”

March CM CoverAnd it’s definitely not just happening with the younger generation.

Dr. James Merritt of Cross Pointe Church in Duluth, Georgia posted, “Two Sundays ago on Easter Sunday this 91-year-old man who I’ve been witnessing to for a year and a half gave his life to Christ. Today I baptized him as he verbally and publicly confessed his faith in Jesus. The #gospel is STILL the power of God to all who believe!”
