About the author:
Joel Hitchcock has a passion for young people to know God and make Him known.
Joel experienced a revelation about the omniscience of God when he was eight. This experience immediately compelled him to become a preacher of the Gospel.
Shortly afterward he received Christ into his heart after reading a gospel tract. He preached his first message when he was twelve.
During a fast at age 13, he asked God if he really should become a preacher. He heard the voice of the Lord saying "Yes my son, I want you to become an evangelist".
Joel started spending much time in prayer and the study of the Word, and read the Bible from cover to cover.
At an early age Brother Joel had a strong interest in the supernatural things of God, which still continues in his life today. He would see visions during prayer, and hear the voice of the Lord.
Joel pursued a miracle-healing ministry of signs & wonders and many have witnessed the supernatural healing power of God in his ministry. Thousands have witnessed many healing miracles such as cripples walk, the blind see, the deaf hear and the mutes speak. Those bound by unhealthy habits and in Satan's grip are set free.
Alongside his ministry of healing and miracles, he especially carries a strong anointing for international mass crusade evangelism. Many thousands of souls have attended his miracle campaigns. Reports about these citywide campaigns can be read about at www.joelhitchcock.com and www.joelhitchcock.blogspot.com. Joel hopes to win 100 million souls to Christ in his lifetime.
Joel is married Heidi, a native of the State of Delaware. They have four children-Anthony, Rebekah, Timothy, and Trey. Joel and Heidi teach their children to love God and the ministry.
In addition to his evangelistic ministry, he has also planted the non-denominational, Spirit-filled River City Church. See www.rivercity.co (not .com).
Joel is well received at many churches with different denominational backgrounds and styles.
Joel wants young people to encounter God and experience Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
Youth Revivalists for the End Time Great Awakening
Revivalist Joel Hitchcock believes that youth revivalists can learn from the revivals and spiritual awakenings of the past in order to facilitate a World-shaking Revival and Great Spiritual Awakening in our generation.
Joel discusses several revivals of the past - such as the Great Awakenings, Welch Revival, the Azusa Street Outpouring, and others, as well as his own experiences, to challenge young people as the next generation of revivalists to usher in the greatest move of God this world has ever known.
God is raising up a younger generation of revivalists for the end time Great Awakening. Great revivals and spiritual awakenings have occurred throughout history in many nations.
Great revivalists blazed the trails of great awakenings in the past, and have passed the torch to a younger generation of revivalists. This younger generation of revivalists are the Young Fires that God is raising up to accomplish His purpose in the end time generation. The Young Fires look back and learn for the flaming revivalists of old, then look at our current generation, and cry, "Wilt thou not revive us again?"
Joel Hitchcock Writes in the first chapter: "I wrote this book in 1999 under the title, The End Time Revival and Great Awakening. At the time I had a tremendous passion for God to move in our generation in a mighty way. I prayed that God would use me and raise up others to usher in a mighty end time revival and spiritual awakening. I have changed the title of this book to Young Fire - End Time Revivalists for the Great Awakening, because not only was I a youth when I wrote it, but it is my deep desire that young people that read it will catch the spirit of revivalism, and be used by God in their generation.
As this book goes into yet another printing, I reflect on what the Lord has done in our generation. I see how God has raised up many powerful men and women of God, who were unknown at the time that I had written this book. Some of them were barely teenagers.
God has indeed raised up some great revivalists. I now look forward to what God may do in the next 20 years and beyond. I wonder what kind of nation-shaking revival God may grant us.
Regardless of the powerful revivals that God had blessed this nation with, they all seem to fall short from the awakenings in the USA, Wales, Hebrides and others from early 1700s through the early 1900s.
Yet we cannot underestimate what God has done recently. Countless lives have been changed and the impact of this move of God will only be appreciated to its full in time to come.
Yet our world seems in a horrible spiritual state. Perhaps these most recent revivals were but tremors before the big one hits. I believe this may be the case.
An author is always hesitant to put into print a work he or she did many years back, without completely re-editing it, or maybe rewriting it altogether. The reason for this is because authors views on certain things change, they may have come upon greater clarity on certain theological topics, their audience is no longer the same as the one present when they initially wrote their book, and their writing skills have also changed or improved.
However, I am putting this book back into print, as it was in 1999, with some editorial changes here and there. The reader may notice that the style of the author reflects that of an on-fire young man, eagerly expecting a mighty move of God.
After serving God for many years, and after over 25 years of full time ministry, I am as on fire now as I have ever been. The spirit of revival is more caught than it is taught. It is my prayer that this work would stir a passion for revival and spiritual awakening in you and in our young generation...
