"Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come."
"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
"But of that day and hour, knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

"Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2, Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful."

History of Revivals
The First Great Awakening - In the New World a series of revivals known as the Great Awakening, spread through the America colonies between 1725 and 1760. Under preachers like Gilbert Tennent, Jonathan Edwards and English evangelist George Whitefield, the revivals reached their peak from 1740 to 1742.
The Second Great Awakening - America's next revival began in 1801 at the Cane Ridge camp meeting in Kentucky, where as many as 3000 were converted. The banner year for camp meetings was 1811, when approximately one-third of all Americans attended one of them.
The Prayer Meeting Revival - which started with just six people in New York City in 1857. The Prayer Meeting Revival spread quickly throughout the world. Over the next two years, a million converts were added to American churches and a million to churches in England and Ireland.
The Welsh Revival - It began in 1904 under the preaching of Evan Roberts. Within two years 100,000 converts were added to the Welsh Church. More than 5 million came to Christ as the revival spread throughout the world.
These are just a few to mention. There have been many revivals and many lost souls found the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.
