LISTEN NOW! Steve, Barbara, and Pat share an exciting conversation as they declare the wonders of the Lord when God poured out His Spirit in 1906 in what is known as the Azusa Street Revival. God chose a humble one-eyed African American man named William J. Seymour who was simply hungry for more of God in his life. When he received Jesus Christ into his life, segregation was prominent in America. Because of the segregation, William was forced to sit outside of a congregation on the steps and listen to the services through the windows. Since he was African American, he was not allowed in. His hunger and desire to know more of God caused him to push through this. It simply didn’t affect him. William would spend hours seeking the Lord and reading his Bible. He preached about the baptism of the Holy Spirit and prayed earnestly for a move of God in his life. As others heard of his hunger, William was invited to Los Angeles to preach. After only a week, he was kicked out and told that he was not welcome. With no money and no place to go, William was invited into another home where he and one other man would pray, sometimes up to 7 hours a day seeking God. God spoke to him to travel to an apartment to share what the Lord had been speaking to him. Much to his surprise, he was greeted by 3 women who had been praying as well believing the Lord for revival. This prayer meeting moved to a small home where others were drawn to their hunger for a mighty move of the Lord. Crowds began massing around this house as they came together. Police brought this to an end because of the crowds. With this door closing, another opened as the Lord guided William and those alongside him to the humble beginnings of a building that was located on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, CA.
