Reviews The unique position which Principal George Jeffreys holds in the religious life of the British Isles is sufficient reason why his book is being added to the large number already published on the subject of divine healing. He is the founder and leader of the most remarkable Revival and Healing movement of latter years - A movement that has won tens of thousands for the Saviour and brought healing through the name of Christ to multitudes of sick people. The author has pioneered the combined message of salvation, healing, baptism of the Holy Ghost and the second coming of Christ in the largest and most historic halls, including the Royal Albert Hall and the Crystal Palace in London, and the Bingley Exhibition Hall in Birmingham, pictures of which appear in this book. These great auditoriums have been packed to overflowing with massive congregations in the grip of Holy Ghost revival. The many astonishing testimonies of those who have been miraculously healed have received worldwide publicity through the secular press. The vacant spinal carriages and bath chairs, the discarded crutches, the cast-off steel and other kinds of body jackets, the cripples who now walk, the cancer and tumour cases that have been miraculously healed, all eloquently testify to the supernatural character of this ministry.

Stephen Jeffreys Stephen Jeffreys was born and raised in the valleys of South Wales, in a typical minning home. He went to work in the coal mines at the age of He led a very typical mining lifestyle until when the great Welsh revival invaded those mines. For several days he was under deep conviction of sin and very sad. Other men working with him had been converted and filled with the joy of the Lord. Finally he came to Christ and became a totally changed man, he was aged That year Wales was filled with the glory of God and new converts.
Immediately he joined himself to Gods people, attending all prayer meetings and especially all open air meetings. He soon started preaching in the open air with great fire and passion.
He continued working in the mines for some years as he became a witness and testimony to all. This is how God prepared His servant. But later being convinced this outpouring was of God he himself sought the same blessing of God. It was during special meetings, that he received his Baptism in the Holy Ghost accompanied with tongues. He had a mighty experience, and this made the difference in his life as a witness, he considered it an epoch in his life.
He was invited a second time to hold a three day Gospel campaign near Swansea in When he was leaving the mine to go preach he turned to a friend and said, "Well, Billy, if God blesses me this time, I shall never return to the coal-mine. During these beginnings his brother George was found by his side in ministry. This was just the beginning of pioneer evangelism for him, he would enter towns where only a few people would turn up, but would pray, preach and persevere until a break came.
But that changed the day a young girl diseased in both feet who was under threat of amputation sent for him to come pray. He anointed her with oil and laid hands on her in the name of Jesus, instantly she was healed and that night testified in the meeting. Great faith came into his heart to believe God for greater things still. In men like Cecil Polhill and A. Boddy hearing about these early campaigns came to see for themselves. While talking personally with Boddy, these two Brothers made known their passion and burden to see the ministry of the Evangelist raised up in the young Pentecostal movement and to see it grow by soul winning.
As a result the testimonies of the meetings were reported in such publications as Confidence and of course invitations came to preach elsewhere. During that time he would head of on short trips, often to struggling missions to help break ground. Shortly after he came to Llanelli, on a Sunday night in July as he preached, there appeared on the wall behind him as it were a vision, all could see it, only when Stephen finished preaching did he go and sit down and also saw it.
First it was a picture of a lamb which then turned to the appearance of the face of Christ as the man of sorrows. This lasted for about six hours with many hundreds being witness to it. Those who were at first sceptics tried everything to explain it but finally had to confess it was God. Two weeks later he preached on Christ as the "Man of sorrows", that week the First World War broke out lasting for the next five years.
In a powerful move of God took place under his ministry in Aberaman, when he arrived it was a fellowship of nine believers, when he left it had over believers. Then to London at the invitation of Polhill and again God bore witness to His word with mighty conversions and miracles. Together with his brother they filled the largest and most famous halls in the land. In He was in Canada and America for several months of ministry with his brother, then back to Britain. In about He left Elim and became the pioneer evangelist for the young AoG, holding mighty campaigns throughout Britain establishing this new movement and giving it an evangelistic thrust.
He then took a world tour covering New Zealand, Austraila, south Africa and America arriving back in This fearless and tireless, rugged preacher who was often said to be like one of the Old Testament Prophets, had worn himself out in abundant labours.
Quite suddenly he came to a standstill with failing health. Crippled with arthritis he spent his last days in his beloved Wales, preaching his last message just one month before he died in In those last days, friends and family stood grieved as they looked upon his form, frail and bent and hands twisted by arthritis which once were laid boldly on the sick.

Dagrel During these beginnings his brother George was found by his side in ministry. George, along with a small group of peers, became known as the Elim Evangelistic Band in Belfast and all over Ulster. During that time he would head of on short trips, often to struggling missions to help break ground. Stephen Jeffreys was a great British evangelist. During the last year I am of the belief that Elim have used some of these pictures. Also do you know where his grave is located?
