The Gentle Breeze of Jesus by Mel Tari

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews



A revival is a burst of religious enthusiasm, a spectacular bit of frenzy that dies away as quickly as it comes - right?
Wrong - if the Timor revival means anything.
In this book, Mel Tari adds to the documentation he began in Like a Mighty Wind. On his native island in Indonesia, he says, Moslems and animists are still coming to accept Jesus Christ.
Incurable illnesses are still being mircaulously healed.
Satanic powers are still being overcome.
Water is still being turned into wine for Communion services.
The dead are still being raised back to life.
And Christians are still growing and maturing in their faith.
The Holy Spirit's surge of activity continues unabated.
Which may tell us that revival is more the result of human openness and humility than of any alleged heavenly whimsy.
Revival continues so long as we make room for it. So long as we do not tell ourselves, "This can't be hapening." Indonesian believers have lived in its stream since 1965. And the gentle breeze is not limited to the South Pacific.

In the mid-1960s thru the 1970s, the islands of Indonesia experienced what some feel was one of the greatest revivals in the 20th century, which has led to millions coming to Christ. A young man of just 18 when this period of revival began, Mel Tari witnessed amazing miracles like those written in the Bible within the remote communities of Indonesia. Tari became a well-known evangelist and missionary to the world from Timor, authoring the bestselling book, Like a Mighty Wind, which documents the amazing events of this spiritual revival in Asia. Translated into dozens of language, the book has become a classic with its message of a childlike faith in the reality of the Holy Spirit and the power of the Word of God. Tari is also the author The Gentle Breeze of Jesus as well as two additional Christian books.
