It looks like the Revival Hymn compilation has been used again by God to stir a heart!I have been burning this compilation along with Ravenhill's 'True Revival' to CD and passing them out at my church for some time now. About six months ago I gave one to a dear brother whom I serve with in a homeless ministry. Just this past week he finally listened to it and it changed his life. As I was exiting the sanctuary at church this morning I hear, "Ron, Ron!" from halfway across the room and there he is waving to me. He was excited and told me that he had listened to the compilation and was just floored by it, especially the parts from Paris Reidheads "Ten Shekels and A Shirt". He told me he just wept through it and has listened to it over again about 8 times. It's interesting, he's a little confused about what to do with this truth that his eyes have been opened to, he's so used to hearing and sharing the humanistic gospel with others, he's convicted that what he heard is the truth though. Praise God, his face was lit up, he was very excited, asked me for more CD's. :-)In Christ,Ron
Love it...Just listened to it again last week, still gets to me. We have the text as well if he is interested.

or turn their backs on it because it conflicts with all they've been taught and have believed.
Embracing it as truth would mean a complete overhaul on their beliefs and they way they look at things. It could change their 'spiritual' world. Some don't want that.
I think many people that listen to things like the Revival hymn and Ten Shekels, have a hard time knowing what to do with it. It's like they have a decision to make. Either embrace the truth (which means that they have been believing many wrong things all along and have been taught wrong) or turn their backs on it because it conflicts with all they've been taught and have believed.
