 The Awakening of 1727 Onward by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: Preached at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys. Orr sets out on part 1 of describing what is known in America as "The Great Awakening" and its equivalent in Britain starting in 1727 with on fire Moravians. The conditions in the world at that time that preceeded the awakening were deplorable and rotten--the gambling, drinking, slave trade, etc. as well as the once powerful Baptists, Congregationalists and Puritans that had lost their spirituality and power. John Wesley, George Whitfield and Jonathan Edwards came into prominence around 1738 and Orr, in his typical fashion, paints a colorful description of what God was powerfully doing through these men of God.

 The Awakening of 1792 Onward by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: Preached at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys. Orr describes the "unparallelled moral slump" that preceded the Second Great Awakening starting in 1792, so bad that churches were in fear that Christianity might be wiped out. Jonathan Edwards and others called for "extraordinary prayer." A union of churches began praying, with Boston seeing the beginnings of revival in 1792 and general national revival by 1798. James McGrady asked his congregants to pray for him in 1799, and showers of blessing came in 1800 on the Kentucky frontier. Out of this revival missionary societies began and colleges became training centers for young pastors and missionaries.

 The Awakening of 1858 in America by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: Preached at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys. This great revival was termed "the event of the century" and in Orr's opinion one of the most cooperative periods in American history where the denominations acted as "one man". It was spectacularly noted for extradordinary conversions and calls to service. What led to this great awakening was a laymen's movement among churches for united prayer for God's outpouring of the Spirit. Orr noted some interesting movements among the slaves and armies in the Civil War and the continued effects up until the death of Moody in 1899.

 The Awakening of 1859 in Britain and Elsewhere by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: Preached at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys. In this relatively short sermon, Orr explains how the revival in America caught fire starting in Ireland, and its effects even surpassing that in America. Sinners were violently prostrated in what they called at that time "slain in the Spirit." He chronicled how prayer meetings mushroomed all over Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, and literally hundreds of thousands converted to Christ. The fires of revival spread to the Scandanvian countries, Germany (which had 30 years of it) and the greatest outpourings ever to occur in Australia and South Africa.

 The First Word of the Gospel by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Gospel
Scripture(s): Matthew 4:17, Mark 1:15, Luke 15:10  
Description: Dr. Orr discusses the modern corruption of the word 'repent,' what the Scriptural meaning is, and discusses the Greek word that was translated into 'repent.' The main push of the message is that the gospel always begins and continues with repentance, and that the gospel preached without it is not the true gospel at all. "Now, would it not be a master stroke of the enemy of the Christian faith to take the very first word of the gospel and change its meaning...well that's exactly what's been done."

 The Movements Between World Wars by J. Edwin Orr

Topic: Revival History
Description: This comprehensive series "History of Revival" was presented at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys, California in 1981. Although the revival tide was out between World War I and World War II in America, Britain and western Europe, God was doing great things on the frontiers. Orr recounts revival in Ireland under Nicholson in the '20's which affected his life. He recollects personal testimony of being in revivals in Norway, Canada and a localized one at Wheaton college. Orr closes by highlighting great extended periods of revivals in China and East Africa that prepared the Church to stand under great times of persecution.
