I think that church history has proven that it is right to be skeptical and cautious about calling something a revival before you have years of faithful fruit to look back on to call it such.
the Gospel was not preached. Christ was mentioned in the conclusion. It was pretty much a “you can’t love so stop trying and just let Christ do it” message. There was no mention of sin (Acts 2:36), no mention of the cross (Acts 2:23). No mention of repentance (Acts 2:38).
(Jordan Standridge – The Cripplegate) George Whitfield was one of the greatest preachers of all time. He famously rode his horse from city to city preaching the Gospel to whoever would listen. Each time he preached thousands came to hear him. And many seemed to show conviction and repentance of sin. At times those present would communicate to him the numbers of those who seemed to respond, and each time it is recorded that George Whitfield would say this word.
Of course, George Whitfield wanted people to be saved. I mean he was killing himself riding a horse from town to town carrying a pulpit a bible and his Matthew Henry commentary. Of course, he was doing this because he wanted people to be saved, but like any faithful preacher, he wanted people to actually be saved.
