There have been numerous revivals over the course of world history and in America. There have been pockets but will there be a final awakening?
Are we drawing to the age in human history whereas the scriptures say in Acts chapter 2 verses 17 – 21:
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people? Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
The whole history of revival has been the history of God’s intervention to retrieve mankind when all other humans have fallen short.
We today don’t just need the power of God to come down to the church, the church needs God’s power to overtake it. Real revival is nothing more than, nothing less than, an outpouring of the Holy Spirit of the living God upon the people of the land.
From camp meetings to all out outpourings of God’s Spirit, He has chosen to visit His people, but what are the keys that seem to unlock the door of revival? Holiness plays a giant role. It is one of the keys as well as prayer being just as big and maybe the biggest factor.
Transformation from revival will only come when we are desperate for it to come. For without an awakening to revival, sinners will grow harder and old saints, colder.
Revival always starts in the life of spiritually lacking Christians as they truly confess their sinfulness. Then it will spread to the lost, for the church must be brought into spiritual order before the lost want to be.
Revival should be for the church a strategic attack by God’s people upon the strongholds of Satan. This nation has a great Christian heritage, a great revival heritage and this heritage needs to be re-visited today or we as a nation will fall into decay.
