The Nature of True  REVIVAL


To know true revival….

We need an utter dependence on Almighty God with a submission in Faith to His Will


For true revival is…..

 A Sovereign outpouring of the Spirit of God in a remarkable and unusual way, in circumstances which do not ordinarily or necessarily warrant it.


The results of true revival…..

 It humbles Christians, draws them to God through Christ and fills them with the Holy Spirit. It heightens their spiritual desires.

 It has an effect on the World, i.e. non Christians, it give them a sense that “God is in this place” and “woe to them”, for they have not Christ,

 It gives the unsaved and Christians a heightened sense of their sins and a feeling of utter unworthiness to stand in the presence of a Holy God.


Verse that show what true revival is….

 Matt 19:26 seems to sum up for me what true revival is about

 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”

 Revival is all of God, not of man. We do not look for organisation, meetings, campaigns, or the such like, we cannot organise true  revival.


A way to promote true revival…

 Yes:   While saying the above though, I acknowledge that true Revival often goes hand in hand with a band or group of the Lord’s people who have been earnestly seeking the intervention of Almighty God in the current situation, faithfully engaged in prayer and seeking personal revival of their own hearts and souls.

BUT God is still absolutely Sovereign in sending forth His Spirit in True Revival


What are we to do….

 Lets us seek the Face of the Lord for Revival in our own Lives firstly,

 then in the Life Church that she might fully glorify God, be holy, and  set apart for the Masters use,

 so that the world might be aware of the presence of God in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.

 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Ps. 85:6

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Is. 57:15

O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy. Hab.3:2

One Response

  1. Yes: there are those who harden their hearts in the midst of revival. The wonderful thing about true revival is that God works with Irresistible Grace in a powerful way and many are turned back to God and many are truely converted. My prayer is that our gracious God would revive us agin in the midst of these dark years.
