The Amish Glory Barn–Send the Fire!

You may find this hard to believe, but last night I visited The Glory Barn in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  With permission from the leader, David Lapp, I took a few pictures while I was there.

The Amish children wait at the bottom of the lane, watching for the next visitor coming to their Glory Barn meeting.

The Glory Barn is led by Amish people in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, who long for the fire of God more than the traditions of men.  They meet on Thursday evenings at 5 or 5:30PM for a pot luck dinner and their mid-week meeting begins at 7PM. The guest speaker, Henry Gruver, asked the Amish and “Englishers” (the meeting held about half and half in attendance) a question.   “What is it that you want God to multiply tonight?  What do you want from God?””Fire!” someone called out.

“Fire!” the Amish leader called out in agreement.

“What do you want from God tonight?”

Who would have thought the Amish were interseted in the fire of God?  Now you can unfollow me if you want to, but I want the fire, too!  These precious Amish brothers and sisters are crying out for the SAME FIRE that William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, called out for in the late 1800’s in England.  Booth wrote:

It’s fire we want, it’s fire we need

Send the fire.

This fire will meet our every need!

Send the fire today!

I met a new friend who gave me permission to photograph her and her camera shy baby girl!

Well, I’ll write more on William Booth another time.  The truth is, there are people who are hungry for the fire and glory of God and people who really don’t want to move on with God.  Most of the time these folks are afraid of what people think.  I’ll tell you whose opinion to fear.  FEAR GOD’s OPINION.  We must humble ourselves–go low, my Brother and Sister, go low.  Bow low before the Lord our God our Maker, our Redeemer.  It is only through the blood of Jesus that we can withstand the glory.

Brother Henry Gruver says that when the glory of God comes, whatever is inside of you will multiply.  We don’t want our sin of pride, strife, jealousy, or anger to multiply do we?  Then we must GO LOW.  That is why it is only through the blood of Jesus that we will be able to go to heaven–where the God of ALL GLORY reigns forever.

Henry Gruver is a father in the Lord and a prayer walker to the nations. I don’t

Brother Henry Gruver shares in the Glory Barn the three times in his life when he saw the glory of God manifest in fire.

want to post his sermon here, but I have it in my possession and if you would like to listen to last night’s message from the Glory Barn, I’ll send you a link.  Email me at seehope@comcast.net  The glory of God is precious and I don’t want to exploit His message or his Amish family.

But I am thinking about you, my friend.  So far, you have found the cross of Jesus valuable and decided to follow this blog.  I don’t want you to miss out on this important message!  Email me.

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

    Leonard Ravenhill often cried out, “Lord, send the fire.” He, too, loved William Booth.

    • Larry, that’s the second time his name was mentioned this week. I’ve not studied his ministry and life, but would love to hear more. Thanks for sharing!

        Leonard Ravenhill is the best preacher that I have ever heard and his two books, “Why Revival Tarries” and “Sodom Had No Bible” are classics. David Wilkerson compares a little to his style since Ravenhill was a mentor and close friend of Wilkerson.

      • Now, that’s an interested title–Sodom had No Bible. Was he from Canada? I signed up for David Wilkerson’s daily devotionals about 2 years ago. Even though he was killed in a car accident one year ago, his son Gary still sends out the devotionals every morning. It amazes me how that man’s fire is still here on the earth through the writing (and I’m sure the audio/video sermons) he left behind. Writing is a powerful medium. I’m going to need to get WHy Revival Tarries and Sodom Had No Bible. Thanks for the tip, Larry.

    • That’s great, Jean. The only way to the glory of God, on earth or in heaven, is through the blood of God’s Son, Jesus. “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but that the world might be saved through Him.” LOVE YOU JESUS!!!
