Description

Excerpt from The Kentucky Revival, or a Short History of the Late Extraordinary Outpouring of the Spirit of God in the Western States of America, Agreeably to Scripture Promises and Prophecies Concerning the Latter Day: With a Brief Account of the Entrance and Progress of What the World Call Shakerism, Among the Subjects of the Late Revival in Ohio and Kentucky III. That this extraordinary work sprung from some supernatural cause has been universally granted; but whether the cause was good or evil, has been a matter of much debate, even among those who profess to take the scripture for their only guide. Christians so called; of all others have been the most divided in their judg ment concerning it and while some without hesitation have pronounced it a glorious work of God; others who professed to be children of the same father, follow cm of the same Saviour, and instructed by the same word of God, have with equal confidence pronounced it witchcraft, enthusiasm, fanaticism, and the very ener gy of delucian. Hence the various predictions con cerning it: Some affirming that it would shortly ter minate and leave the unhappy subjects of it, in a worse condition than ever; others that it should cover the earth, as the waters cover the sea, and gather the tions into one united body. IV. As the continuance of the revival was so strong ly predicted and asserted by its subjects, it will be pro per to consider how far and upon what footing, those predictions and assertions are tenable. That it should always continue in the same measure and appearance without any increase, was never intended; therefore if that same power continues to work, though it, should be in a greater degree and more extraordinary manner, and tho' it should be among a different people, this will not prove the above predictions false, provided it be the same power working to the same end.
