In recent weeks, a spiritual revival has been sweeping through college campuses across the United States, with reports of students experiencing profound encounters with Jesus Christ.
This started with the Asbury revival, and the latest campuses to experience this phenomenon are Texas A&M, Indiana Wesleyan, and Louisiana State University (LSU). According to witnesses, the revival is marked by students gathering in large groups, singing hymns and worship songs, and sharing their testimonies of faith. Many have described feeling the powerful presence of God and experiencing deep emotional and spiritual healing.
“It’s not religion. It’s just meeting Jesus,” said one student at Texas A&M.
Bonnie Fehlauer, Lead pastor of New Life Church, Corpus Christi Texas, had uploaded a series of videos and pictures on the intensity of the revival. He also mentioned that baptism of those that received the gospel was done on the premises.
In one of his captions, he said; “Just received this text from one of young adult leaders who served with the elementary kids at New Life Church.
“Hey PM! I know it’s late but I thought I’d share this! This morning in the 11am service The Holy Spirit was just poured out into the kids!
They were praying for forgiveness, receiving the love of Jesus, and all kneeling before God. It was the most powerful one we’ve had yet! Many were weeping and being redeemed from trauma they’ve been holding on to for a long time! The leaders began to pray over them to receive the filling of The Holy Spirit and we ended up staying in worship for over an hour!
The leaders were crying at how powerful it was! God is good!”
At Indiana Wesleyan, the revival has been particularly intense, with reports of students falling to their knees and weeping in repentance. At LSU, the revival has attracted attention from both students and faculty, with some professors cancelling classes to attend prayer meetings.
Despite the fact that the revival is not officially sanctioned by any particular religious group or organisation, it has been largely welcomed by campus officials.
As the revival continues to spread to other campuses across the country, many are hopeful that it will lead to a renewed sense of purpose and faith among young people.
