He preached about the Holy Spirit. The works of wonders of the Holy Spirit. Did he really believe, that the Holy Spirit could actually do it again?
The culture of multiplication is historically proven. The story of revival among the gypsies. So Europe has many stories of movements really seeing the gospel going forward historically. But are there any stories like the last 100 years? Or after the Second World War in Europe that you know about? One name and one date. Clement Le Cosaque. 1946 Clement le Cosaque is a pentecostal pastor, Assemblies of God. He is in Lille, And in one day a young man, who was in his twenties. The guitar player in the gypsy community comes to him and says my mother is sick. And we tried everything. Doctors. There is no hope. I heard you this morning. You talked about the Holy Spirit. You talked about a God, who is healing people. I want this God to come and heal my mother Clement le Cosaque was in shock He preached about the Holy Spirit. The works of wonders of the Holy Spirit. Did he really believe that the Holy Spirit could actually do it again? The story of revival among the gypsies. And that afternoon, he came to his caravan, because they live in a caravan. There he saw the mother of the young man. She was laying on the floor, not even in bed. He kneeled down, shaking in his boots praying that the Lord would honor the faith of this young man He prayed for this woman. And that started the revival among the gypsy people. The gospel moved across countries. From Lille, in the north of France to Normandie, to Belgium, to Germany, to Spain, Italy. And in less than 10 years Across Europe, you had a revival. Up to half a million gypsies gave their lives to Christ. Became disciples. And planted churches, where they were. Either in the caravans or during the summer conventions, where they liked to gather with brothers and sisters coming from all over Europe. It didn’t stop there. The revival that started in Lille in 1946 moved beyond Europe, to Eurasia, Africa, all the way to Japan. All the way to the Americas, back to Europe. Because it started with the acts of the Holy Spirit in 1946 Healing an old woman in a caravan, nobody would give a chance for survival.
