The strict revival prophet William Bramwell

Publicerad 2020-09-17 19:43:00 i Church History, History, Revivals, William Bramwell,

This page writes this about oldtestamently strict revival prophet William Bramwell:

"Bramwell was sent to Liverpool in 1808. He found the Society there in bad condition and within three months he had removed 100 members. He was quite strict when it came to removing people who did not follow the rules or display the right character for a Christian. He was criticised for being too strict, but he probably felt that anyone in the Society who was not seeking God or exhibiting the true characteristics of a Christian would bring others down to their level. Despite this he was able to write that 130 had been added by the following quarter. He was also able to bring back the doctrine of sanctification which had been given up several years earlier.

A letter at this time shows Bramwell’s concerns. ‘The reason why the Methodists in general do not live in this salvation is, there is too much sleep, too much meat and drink, too little fasting and self-denial, too much conversation with the world, too much preaching and hearing, and too little self-examination and prayer.’ Over the years little changes."
