            WERE YOU THERE?

Watch!!! You may give away your age.!!!

Glasgow Kelvin Hall 21st March to 30th April,1955;- Ibrox , Friday night 50,000

Saturday Hampden 100,000 as big a crowd as any international.

London broke the ice and Scotland swam in a warmer current.

            Allegedly shots of brandy were given to any who fainted in the crowd.

Grady Wilson, one of Graham’s team is adamant that he saw one lady faint three times.

Legend, myth or truth…. Who knows.? One thing is sure for certain. Many thousands were drinking deeply from the Holy Spirit on that wonderful occasion.

            Perhaps no other single factor played such an important part, and had such a profound impact on the spiritual life of Scotland for many years as the Billy Graham All Scotland Crusade.

            Many who responded to the gospel challenge later went on to become ministers in the church. They in turn touched many thousands of more lives.

            That first generation of ministers is now dying out. Scotland is fervently praying for such a new infusion to the ministry.

            Again via Live-links thousands more lives were again touched.

            What was the reason for spirit filled messages?

What lay behind such convicted lives.

            Surely the centrality of the Cross of Jesus Christ, backed by the authority of the Scriptures.

People were made to face up to the hurt and offence to a Holy God, by our disobedience and sins. But they were also reassured that God is a forgiving God, and Jesus is a wondrous Saviour.

            That’s why this morning, surrounding the viewing of the film we will sing Just as I am, Blessed assurance, and Who can cheer the heart like Jesus.

            That message still needs to be heard in a very liberal, God-neglecting, Scotland today.
WAS YOUR LIFE TOUCHED AND CHANGED FOREVER?

“BEING A CHRISTIAN IS MORE THAN JUST AN INSTANTANEOUS CONVERSION - IT IS A DAILY PROCESS WHEREBY YOU GROW TO BE MORE AND MORE LIKE CHRIST.”



(Rev William Izett)
