This is an account of an amazing event that happened in the isle of Lewis in Scotland in 1949. Hopefully, you will get convicted and will start your prayer for God’s mercy and revival in your land, for pouring of the Holy Spirit over your town, city and nation. Even if the judgement of God has already started we still have a chance to pray to the Lord for mercy and stopping the terrible plague which is killing people globally. If we ask that the Lord gives us more time, pray for salvation and the power of conviction coming over the unsaved people so that they will repent and come to their senses, there is a chance that God will grant us our request. Why not start praying, fasting and pleading with the Lord instead of waiting for the doom and terrible drama and doing nothing? Isn’t it a duty of every Christian to pray? God answered several times to prayers of His people in the past, including stopping the plague.
In 1949, Campbell felt called to rejoin the Faith Mission, which provided him with a house in Edinburgh. However, his ministry took him back to Skye, where he had worked 25 years before, travelling to and from Edinburgh by motorcycle. This work was successful, leading to people being converted to Christ. He was thoroughly engaged in that work when he received the call to go to the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. He initially resisted this call, but doors closed in Skye, opening the opportunity for him to go.
The call came from the Reverend James Murray MacKay, at the prompting of two Gaelic-speaking sisters in their eighties, who had been praying for revival. It was only at the third invitation that Campbell accepted. Over the following years he traveled from village to village preaching with many people being converted.
On one occasion Campbell was the main preacher at the Faith Mission Convention at Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church in Bangor, Northern Ireland, when he suddenly felt that he must leave at once, despite being engaged to speak at the closing meeting there the next day. He went (according to the call) to the island of Berneray off Harris, where he met an elder of the local church (then without a minister), who was so convinced that Campbell was coming that he had already announced the meetings at which Campbell was to preach. After several days of meetings, suddenly the island was gripped with a new awareness of God.
After unreliable reports of events on Lewis, he published a booklet, The Lewis Awakening, as an official account of this revival.
Campbell was outspoken about two aspects of the work of the Holy Spirit. The first was that, in his view, a true revival was a move of God that affected, not only church members, but the surrounding community in a way that was visible to all parties concerned (work stopping, bars closing, crime ceasing, etc.). The second was the definite and profound experience of the baptism of the Holy Ghost subsequent to conversion.
His practice in evangelistic meetings was not to make the usual altar call, but to invite people to come to another room to pray and seek God. In his ministry in Lewis, he sought to transcend denominational boundaries, but this was at times difficult.
Duncan Campbell was, before everything else, a man of prayer and almost invariably started the day with a period of prayer and study of the Bible. (Wikipedia)
Satan often uses fear as the gate for evil spirits, variety of demons such as panic or panic attack, paralyzing fear, dread and several kinds of similar, related spirits and you do not even know it. That is why you need to guard your heart and mind and keep trusting the Lord. I experienced it myself when one day I was talking to one, young very demonized lady and suddenly demons in her managed to frighten me (it was at the beginning of my deliverance training) I virtually felt demons entering my body, it was a horrible experience but, thank God, He rescued me very quickly and cast them out with the help of my Christian brother. This is real people, that’s why the enemy is using all kinds of media to bring panic and horror among the population of the world, to terrify us with sickness and death. There are several meanings behind this virus, and I am talking now about spiritual meanings only. For Christians, it is a call to deeply repent and get stronger in Jesus to be holy as His coming is getting closer, for non-Christians it is a call for repentance and seeking God with all their hearts. It is sin that brings the judgement of God in the form of a biblical plague. Who reads the Bible knows that God often uses plagues to punish sinful and rebellious people and as we know the sin today and perversion of people are unbelievable.
Truly born again Christians should not fear as we know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord so if we die from corona or any other reason we are going to be with Him. It is God who decides about life and death, not the virus. I know it’s hard when we worry about family, unsaved relatives, money etc. but this is the time to spend with God and with the bible, to get stronger in Him and tell others about Jesus, to trust Him with our tomorrows and get rid of that panic and fear that all the news are trying to incite in us because of the raging virus. God promised to protect us, and we need to trust Him, basically to fear is to sin as this is rebellion against what God commands which is FEAR NOT. So, calm down, pray a lot, speak to Him whenever you can and keep trusting.
He is the Almighty, the Alpha and Omega and nobody can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If you are feeling lonely, abandoned by your church which is closed now, if you need Christian company or fellowship, bible study or just some chat, let me now, please. Email me, and we can organize regular meetings on skype with several other lonely Christians and encourage one another. That would take place on Sunday evening initially.
If you are a born again Christian living in fear now, do command all the evil spirits named below to leave you in the name of Jesus. Repent from not trusting God and command all these demons to leave you right now. You must believe that you have power and authority from Jesus Christ, your Savior, to do self-deliverance, without faith, God will not honour it. So, think about what is written in the bible and trust God.
Father, forgive me for not trusting you, forgive me living in fear and panic, forgive me for trusting more the enemy and the media more than you, please set me free from the torment of fear and help me to walk trusting that you are taking care of my life and it is you who controls it not the enemy, please, increase my faith I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
FEAR HAS TORMENT
In the name of Jesus, I command all the following spirits to leave me now! I do not want you! I command you to go where the Lord Jesus wants you to go, you do not belong here anymore! I am a child of the living God bought with the blood of Jesus Christ and I belong to Jesus forever! He is the Victor, He is the Lord of lords and He died for my sins. Leave me right now, all of you out! Out in the name of Jesus!
To clarify the text below for some readers – this is my personal conviction and opinion supported by others. If you disagree with anything here, take it to the Lord in prayer. I do not claim to be a master or a teacher and to know everything perfectly as someone suggested. Since the beginning of Christianity, there have been disagreements and arguments of which the Apostle Paul himself wrote. It’s not different today. Some of my close, personal Christian friends disagree with me about Christmas, so you need to decide for yourself if you want to celebrate the birth of Christ or not.
I am coming boldly against the lying statements of some Christian and non-Christian conspiracy theorists claiming that Christmas is a pagan holiday which causes lots of confusion and suffering as well. It reminds me of one young family whom I knew at school where I used to teach. They had two lovely kids and also were teachers. The mum of a young father was also a teacher. At one point those young people became Jehovah Witnesses. They stopped celebrating Christmas and other holidays, they became weird and changed dramatically. The mother of that young man complained that her grandchildren are utterly unhappy as they suddenly are denied Christmas, Christmas tree, gifts and all the Christmas celebration they knew from the past. Everyone in that family was unhappy and shocked. Nowadays, someone is diligently trying to destroy this long tradition of celebrating the birth of Jesus. It reminds me that Jehovah witness couple. As most people know Jehovah’s Witness is a cult, who does not even believe that Jesus Christ is God and our Savior (check what they believe exactly, I was told by a former Jehovah Witness lady, that they believe Jesus was an arcangel Michael. According to wikipedia: “Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the Archangel Michael, “the Word” of John 1:1, and wisdom personified in Proverbs 8 refer to Jesus in his pre-human existence and that he resumed these identities after his ascension to heaven following his death and resurrection..) It saddens me badly that devoted Christians are rejecting now the most beautiful holidays of the year. More and more Christians are giving up on Christmas without the proper knowledge and checking if this is true, that Christmas is a pagan holiday. They stop celebrating the birth of our precious Savior, singing the most beautiful Christmas carols and songs which our great, great grandfathers sung to glorify Jesus Christ.
Think about it, who is behind Jehovah’s Witness cult? Isn’t it the devil and the spirit of antichrist? Whoever denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, God Himself and our Saviour is a lair and an antichrist, said John, the Apostle.
So, if this is the case, who does not want Christians to celebrate Christmas? Isn’t it the same spirit of antichrist? I bet it is. I have been walking with Jesus very close for the last 12 years and I have never had any conviction about Christmas. Yes, we are not to overeat and overspend money going crazy about presents and other things, not to mention work Christmas parties where people get totally drunk.
I am talking about born again Christians who love the Lord Jesus and it brings them a joy to remember that He was born for us in December. This is also a great occasion to tell others why we love Christmas and why Jesus was born.
Lots of people just watch some conspiracy videos on youtube and without making any research they just follow blindly anybody who says something online.
This is wrong and this is not very wise because, firstly, this way you can be led astray by anybody. Secondly, how do you know who is the person who made that video? Do you know him personally? Are you sure it is not a satanist who is only pretending to be a Christian? We do not know who is on the other side. Do not believe blindly anything.
Now, anyone can make any video they want and upload it to youtube, Beware and be wise. Jesus Christ told us to be gentle like a lamb and wise like a serpent. Be careful people, satan and his demons are very crafty, much more than humans, check everything and pray about any strange changes that you may want to introduce into your life after watching any unchecked video or reading unchecked articles. That is also true that Christmas has been hijacked by the world and people celebrate it no matter if they are Christians or not. As it is written on the following pages (you can check the validity of the historic information given by going to the old-style libraries with paper, printed books). I cannot imagine the Lord not being happy when His children, the church celebrates His birth every year. Do you celebrate your child’s, mother’s, father’s friend’s birthday? I bet you do, so why we should not be happy that our Wonderful Prince of Peace was born to save us from our sins? There is an excellent, article below with historical facts which explain that IT WAS PAGANS who stole the date of Christmas celebration from Christians. You can read a lot more information there which will prove that Christmas belongs to Christ. The article is well written and well researched.
“An increasing number of Christians have come to believe that Christmas is derived from paganism. They’ve heard that the timing of Christmas may have been borrowed from Roman sun god worship. Or that Christmas trees come from German paganism. Or that the star on top of the Christmas tree comes from astrological worship. But these myths are all so wrong. Christmas—the celebration of the Nativity of our Lord—is a thoroughly Christians celebration. Here’s why.” Read more in the link above.

I love Christmas, I love you Jesus my Lord, my King, my life and my Saviour forever.
And I will not be quiet about your birth, this is the time to tell everybody why we have such joy and why armies of angels were singing when you came to this world.
Thank you, Lord, for humbling yourself and becoming a man to save us.
Amazing, angelic voice.
