In a recent interview with Charisma News, Pastor Brian Gibson shared the electrifying accounts of ongoing revivals at his church’s campuses filled with testimonies of supernatural encounters. The intensity of the events left Pastor Gibson, and those involved, in awe of the power of God.
“I’ve done like, two solid weeks of preaching right now every night. Right. But it’s been, it’s been great,” Pastor Gibson shared, capturing the exhilaration of the revivals taking place. What started as scheduled conferences in Kentucky and Texas quickly turned into something extraordinary—a manifestation of the Holy Spirit that is transcending expectations.
The Texas revival, in particular, took an unexpected turn when Pastor Gibson and others sensed a powerful presence in the room. Describing the experience cautiously, Pastor Gibson shared, “I physically felt something touch me on my head. And I opened up my eyes and there’s nothing there.” This encounter, echoed by others present, marked the beginning of a series of miraculous events.
Miracles unfolded as the power and anointing of God permeated the atmosphere. Healings occurred, ranging from a blocked aorta miraculously opening to individuals finding relief from physical ailments. The divine touch was evident, sparking excitement and drawing crowds even before any big names were associated with the revival.
Pastor Gibson emphasized the need for a revival in America, recognizing that no political remedy could address the nation’s deep-rooted issues. “The only thing that can help this nation is an awakening,” he asserted. The revivals, according to him, are not just about saving a nation but about transforming lives through a renewed passion for Jesus.
Sharing a poignant moment from the revival, Pastor Gibson recounted a night when, instead of a guest speaker, Jesus Himself took the spotlight. “Can I be your special guest tonight?” Jesus asked, leading to a night where the focus remained solely on the Savior. The absence of a renowned guest allowed attendees to experience the profound simplicity of encountering Jesus.
The themes preached during the revival centered on believing God for bigger things, the controversy between the Jews and Palestine and the return of false gods in contemporary culture. The revival aimed to keep Jesus at the forefront, emphasizing that the ultimate goal is not just the manifestation of spiritual gifts but a genuine connection with the giver of those gifts.
However, the supernatural encounters extended beyond the church services, reaching into the streets of Owensboro, Kentucky. Pastor Gibson described a surge in demonic activity, manifesting as people oppressed or possessed by evil spirits. The battle against occult practices, coupled with the influx of drugs, brought the spiritual warfare to a new level.
As the revivals continue, the church grapples with unprecedented challenges and opportunities to minister to those in need. The stories of deliverance and transformation underscore the profound impact of these revivals, serving as a beacon of hope in a world yearning for a move of the Holy Spirit.
In the midst of the extraordinary, Pastor Gibson remains committed to his conviction: “We didn’t come for the gift; we came for the One that gives the gift.” The ongoing revivals, with their miraculous events and encounters, stand as a testament to the transformative power of a genuine encounter with Jesus Christ.
