Inside Moriah ChapelDescription: The disciples, on the day of Pentecost, had more than force. They had had understanding, when Christ opened their minds to the interpretation of the Scriptures; they had had knowledge in the three and-a-half years in Gospel work: in healing the sick, in casting out demons, in seeing miracles performed, in listening to the things of the Kingdom uttered in parable and without parable Â— uttered in illustrative and picturesque language, and in open truth Â— the flaming swaying sword of truth. They had been trained to watch; trained to pray; trained to observe; trained to detect the presence of evil spirits in men and to cast them out; trained to heal the sick. Things, which they had never comprehended, were now, on the day of Pentecost, rightly interpreted to them by the Holy Ghost. Sin they knew had to be dealt with, and Satan, too.
LIVING ECHOES OF THE WELSH REVIVALDescription: This book contains some vivid pen sketches of seven of the principal revival leaders that were used during the Welsh Revival including Evan Roberts, Joseph Jenkins, R. B. Jones, W. W. Lewis, Seth Joshua, W. S. Jones and Keri Evans.
LlanddowrorDescription: Llanddowror the town where Evan Roberts preached in the welsh revival of 1904. Note how David became weak before NathanÂ’s charge: Â“Thou art the man.Â” DavidÂ’s previous and just judgment on the unnamed criminal fell back heavily upon himself. Sin is a weakening factor Â— then get rid of sin, and let it not reign; and cast off the works of darkness. In fact, get rid of all that morally weakens you. There is moral strength; there is physical strength. The man of Belial can never be a leader of men; his courage is rage, bordering on madness, and is over-full of folly. The just alone can stand in the place of the righteous. Sin weakens you, because it brings all the power of God and of goodness against you. Israel could not stand before the men of Ai because of sin in the camp. Then Â“Be StrongÂ” BY NOT BEING WEAK. Remove all that makes you weak; remove all that hinders you being strong. CainÂ’s moral strength was weakened by the acceptance of AbelÂ’s offering. The strong became weak through sin.
Meeting in a coal mineDescription: Ignorance is a source of weakness. JoshuaÂ’s ignorance of the wile of the Gibeonities led him to lose a victory over a section of the Canaanites. John the Baptist in prison fell into doubt concerning Christ and his own prophecy, because he did not understand the ways of God. He said: Â“Art Thou the Christ?Â” He possibly reasoned thus: Â“If Thou art the Christ, and Thou art undoubtedly doing wonderful things, then why not do one miracle more and release me from prison?Â“ JosephÂ’s soliloquy in prison is not recorded, but he must have undoubtedly questioned his Â“theology.Â”
Moriah Chapel todayDescription: Peter, in declaring his allegiance to Christ, said, in order to prove its genuineness, that he would abide with Him unto death; yet by the taunt of a Roman maid he revoked his utterance, revealing his allegiance to be less than superficial. In reality there was none when he said, Â“I know not the Man.Â” What a descent from the highest point of declaration of allegiance to the lowest point of denial! The Â“old manÂ’sÂ” words and the Â“old manÂ’sÂ” deeds do not agree Â— there is painful discord. He said, Â“I will die with Thee,Â” but the truth was, Â“I will deny Thee.Â” Â“Die withÂ” and Â“Deny Â“are two irreconcilable extremes. But the manÂ’s volition only needed, and needed, a clothing with the new manÂ’s power. The words were those of a courageous man. But he who has suffered not can well promise to die. The poor would give alms if only they were rich. The promises of the experienced are to be trusted. The sufferer is the one to promise Â“to die with,Â” He knows what suffering is, and how to bear and how much to bear. PeterÂ’s declaration savoured of courage; his faithlessness that of a coward.
Mr. Dan Roberts 01Description: If you desire physical strength you must pay the price by complying with the laws of strength. In the spiritual world suffering Â— spiritual suffering Â— is one condition of strength. In the physical world it means a long course of sustained physical exercises, and obedience to the laws of health, but prior to that an understanding of them. Then CONFORM WITH LAW IN ORDER NOT TO BE WEAK; conform with law that you may be strong. Sin in the camp, or congregation, or in the life, will cause the foe to win. No strength is substitute for righteousness.
Mr. Dan Roberts 02Description: Saul in height was head above all of that camp in Israel, yet he lacked moral strength. A javelin served him to express his anger and jealousy. In heart and purpose this revealed him to be a murderer. He sought the life of David. Worldly or social position is no guarantee of moral strength; the high in office may be the low in practice. The injunction to Joshua indicates a great moral secret of success with God and man. It was this: Â“Only be courageous.Â” And again to Jeremiah: he the one to be against the whole land, against the Kings of Judah. Ah Â— but the secret God had made him Â“A defenced city, an iron pillar and brazen walls.Â”
Nazareth C.M. Chapel BirchgroveDescription: Nazareth C.M. Chapel Birchgrove was a chapel that evan roberts preached at. The great strength of the Christian will be through his full conformity of spirit, soul and body to divine laws, both spiritual and natural. See to it that you conform to the laws of the body, the laws of the brain Â— the whole of the mental faculties Â— and the laws of the spirit. Remember that sin slays its tens of thousands; trouble more than work; anxiety more than heavy problems. Avoid strain; avoid evil-work and over-work.
Odlau Mawl... 1905Description: 'Odlau Mawl: Tonau ac Emynau y Diwygiad', published in 1905 in Pwllheli.
Pisgah ChapelDescription: The last great effort of the worldÂ’s whole moral and physical strength in unison was seen in the attempt to build that gigantic tower of salvation at Babel. But it was never roofed. These men endeavored to fight God with His own weapons. But NATURE NEVER SIDES WITH SIN. They attempted to get nature on their side against GodÂ’s possible vindictive judgment. Nature is GodÂ’s, and should not be sought to aid or to cover evil. With nature Â— not contrary to her Â— is the best way of salvation.

Sacred Songs and Solos. ca. 1880Description: 'Sacred Songs and Solos' by Ira D Sankey, London, ca. 1880. This is the most important collection of English-language hymns used during the Revival of 1904-05. Ira D Sankey was a well-known singer in Revival meetings at the end of the nineteenth century and this volume is a compilation of old and new hymns together, which became the foundation for many hymns that appeared during the Revival of 1904-05.
Seth JoshuaDescription: An evangelist with the Forward Movement of the Calvinistic Methodist Church. Who was in the meeting when Evan Roberts had a life changing experience with God. Divine strength is not withdrawn, even after moral laws have been transgressed. See how Samson sinned at his entrance into Gazeh. Even after sinning he took away by his own divine-given strength the gates of the city. His strength left him not, because he had not violated the conditions for maintaining the special gift of strength, which was his through the law of the Nazarite. Even after lying to his wife, his strength still remained. You are punished by the law you transgress. But did it remain after violating the law of the Nazarite? Then strength was gone. And when strength goes, it is often because some law has been transgressed.
