The Biggest Revival of The 20th Century
William Seymour was a black man in whom God used to spearhead the biggest revival of the 20th century. Brother Seymour wanted to be filled with the holy spirit. He read of the outpouring in the book of “The Acts of the Apostles” and had known and heard of others being filled with the holy spirit and speaking with other tongues. He prayed daily, seeking God for the manifestation. On one day in April of 1906 in Los Angeles, California, the power fell. People began to fill the house where Seymour was. They were joyfully speaking in tongues. A woman with no piano knowledge began playing supernaturally by the power of God. They sang, worshipped and praised God day and night. Brother Seymour, who was of the Church of God in Christ, taught the word. The house was too small to accommodate the crowds so they rented a warehouse on Azusa St. This is what turned out to be the historic “Azusa St. Revival. This revival lasted over 10 years, as people came from around the globe to experience this blessing. It all began to dwindle when factions of the caucasian race segregated themselves from Seymour and formed what is now known as “The Assemblies of God”.
