Revival breaks out in France: Hundreds embrace Christ, '2,000 miracles' take place in one 'incredible night'

"Europe is alive for Jesus!"
The exclamatory statement came from Chris Gore, a minister from Bethel Church in California, who spoke at the Lord at the Grande Conference in Paris last week, CBN News reports.
In a message he posted on his Facebook page, Gore said hundreds of people encountered the gospel and surrendered their hearts to Christ during last week's event.
"What an incredible night in France. We saw tonight around 2,000 miracles and exactly 100 reports of deaf ears opening," he posted along with a video of an auditorium full of people praising God.
The conference was held amid growing concerns about economic instability and more terrorist attacks in Europe this year, with the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organisation exerting more efforts to widen its campaign of terror.
Amid the uncertainties in the continent, the conference was called to urge European Christians to develop a stronger relationship with God. Held under the theme "Mercy triumphs over judgment," the gathering declared God's ability to heal and restore Europe.
Gore writes that during the first session of the conference, "over 70 percent of over 1,000 people gave their lives to Jesus for the first time."
He says thousands more "experienced life-changing miracles."
Gore believes that the key to overcoming the sense of gloom in Europe is to teach the believers how to "become the light of the world."
"Jesus said when He was on this earth, 'I am the light of world.' When He left He said, 'Now you are,'" Gore says. "When we shine our light, darkness has no option but to leave!"
Following the revival in France, Gore and the other ministers are now setting their sights on Germany and Austria which will host similar conferences with the ultimate goal of changing the spiritual condition of Europe with the power of the gospel.
