Psalm 63: 1,2: You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.  I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.

Isaiah 60: 1,2: Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.


John Kilpatrick stood on the stage of the Attwell Centre, basking in the glow of an hour of exuberant, exquisite worship. He smiled broadly and asked Don Potter to come to the stage to play his favorite worship song, “Show Me Your Face.” Potter’s almost painfully beautiful rendition of his classic flowed smoothly into Kilpatrick’s message on the Glory of God. Light the Fire Again was off to a lovely start.

Light the Fire Again is a conference that produced by Christ for All Nations, an international evangelistic ministry that leads huge gospel crusades, mainly in Africa. Held at the site of the Toronto Blessing revival the conference had more than 3,000 people in attendance coming from all over the world to spend three and a half days in worship, prayer, fellowship and teaching. Kilpatrick’s opening address on the Glory of God set the tone for the whole conference. Though the speakers claimed to not have compared notes beforehand the theme of the Glory of God, holiness, the power of God, and evangelism ran through virtually every speaker with most messages building on the messages that came before.

Considerable insight was given into the Toronto Blessing itself. John Arnott, who was the pastor of what was the Toronto Airport Vineyard Church at the time, described how he asked Randy Clark to come and speak at the church. Clark had been a Baptist pastor who had seen a revival break out in his church in 1984. Arnott said he asked Clark to come and speak because the congregation of the Airport Vineyard were hungry for revival as well. Arnott says that Clark told him he would come, but warned him that “it only happened once.”

The fire that was lit at those initial meetings in 1994 went on for years, and in conjunction with other revivals occurring in the time period (Brownsville, Lakeland, etc) spread throughout the world. Hundreds of thousands of people streamed through the doors of the Airport church during the times of the outpouring, and visitors carried the blessing home. Appropriate to the fact that this revival didn’t happen in isolation from other churches and movements, pastors, evangelists, and worship leaders from some of the other streams flowing lead parts of the conference as well.

Kilpatrick, Lou Engle, Randy Clark, Dr. Michael Brown, and Lindell Cooley (among others) ministered from their experience, study, and anointing to inspire and impart to the hungry crowd.



Christ for All Nations (CfAN) was founded forty five years ago by evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, and in that time over 78 million documented decisions for Christ have been recorded. Now lead by evangelist Daniel Kolenda, CfAN has seen crowds of up to 1.6 million people attend single events and miraculous healings occur along with masses of people coming to Christ. Kolenda himself gave a powerful message on Friday night about the Glory of God, healing, and evangelism.

In talking with many of the attendees it was clear that they didn’t travel halfway around the world to simply have an experience or get goose bumps. These were people who are truly hungry for the Glory of God, the manifestation of His will in their lives, and the completion of the good work He has started.
