Pentecostal 100 Anniversary
Osaka, Japan (September 11~12, 2001)

The 100th Pentecostal Anniversary was celebrated in Osaka, Japan for two days beginning September 11, 2001, under the leadership of the anniversary congress chairperson, Rev. Sugimoto Shunsuke, and under the sponsorship of DCEM (David Cho Evangelistic Mission). Dr. Cho was invited to preach for both days. He stressed the importance of working with the Holy Spirit for the revival of the Japanese churches. About 7,000 people gathered at the Osaka International Conventional Center (OICC) for two days. The theme of the rallies was, "Come from the four winds, O breath” (Ezekiel 37:9, NIV).

Dr. Cho emphasized that we should accept the Holy Spirit as a partner for the revival of the Japanese churches. He continually stressed that Christians saved from sin, the curse and suffering, should be led by the Holy Spirit. On the second day of the rally, September 12, after the terrorist attack in the United States he preached that we should love one another with upright faith. Then this kind of terrible event will not happen again on the earth. He also said that professing the wrong kind of faith is the cause of this disaster. The only way to overcome the crisis is love each other with God’s love. After his sermon, people stood up and repented of their sins for not showing love to one another, and they also prayed for America.

Two hours before the rally, people lined up to go into the OICC. Mr. Keichi from Yamagata province excitingly said he has been reading Dr. Cho's books since 10 years ago. He said that he drove for 12 hours from his place to Osaka to listen to the well-known Holy Spirit movement preacher. After the rally a young man said, “It was easy to listening to the preaching and it was my first time to experience the leading of the Holy Spirit so vividly.”

The executive director of the 100th Pentecostal Anniversary Congress Committee, Rev. Murakami Yoshinobu, mentioned that the Japanese churches have been greatly influenced by Dr. Cho and therefore Dr. Cho was invited to be the main speaker. He said that they expect to have a revival in the Japanese churches because of these rallies.The rallies commemorated some of the first people to receive the Holy Spirit at a Bible school in Topeka, Kansas USA in early January 1901. Japan also wants to receive the Holy Spirit, so they held the 100th Pentecostal Anniversary in Osaka. About 100 Pentecostal churches throughout Japan joined in the rallies in Osaka.
