 Revival

They can be no revival when the Holy Spirit is neglected in the church. What do you think

 Re: Revival

That is why prayer, intercession, and identificational repentance must be made on behalf of the Church.

Past revivals have come when the Church was in it’s darkest hour. Someone stood in the gap.
God always looks for intercessors to restore life to that which is dying.

 Re: Identificational Repentance

Mike- so blessed by your posts. Always make sure I read them. On this concept of “identificational repentance” however could I ask you to please explain or give me a definition. In my five decades of Christian journey I have never heard of it. Is it Old Testament, or part of the New Covenant? Interceding I understand, standing in the gap for one another but is this something different? Did Christ address in some way? Thanks

 Re:

The concept of ‘standing in the gap’ actually comes from the Old Testament in Ezekiel 13.

Quote:
Ezekiel 13:5 KJV
[5] Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord .



Indentificational repentance is highlighted in Daniel 9. This concept is also present in Nehemiah several times.

 Re: Identificational Repentance

Thanks for the response Jeremy. I am familiar with those Old Testament passages and the context, and I also believe they have some relevance to the New Testament, however when confronted with something new to me I look to what Christ said or taught, next to the Disciples teachings, then to the teachings of Paul. Can’t find a substantiative reference. Have now become aware that C. Peter Wagner was a champion of this in the 1990’s and viewpoints vary from “spot on” to heresy. I admit there is an internal “check” that makes me feel real uncomfortable. Will need to investigate.Peace

 Re:


"Identificational Repentance" is a term referring to a type of prayer which identifies with
1 and confesses before God the corporate sins of one's nation, people, church, or family.
Such sins often stand in the way of revival, and God seems to move with greater blessing and power to advance the gospel and the cause of Christ where the Body of Christ prays this way. The purpose of such prayer is to open doors for the gospel and allow God to heal the land, according to the promise of 2 Chron. 7:14, "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." ....

 Re:

Daniel’s Identificational Repentance
For Israel:


4I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:

"O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands, 5we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. 6We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7"Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame -- the men of Judah and people of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. 8O Lord, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you. 9The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; 10we have not obeyed the Lord our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. 11All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you.

"Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. 12You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing upon us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. 13Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. 14The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.

15"Now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. 16O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our fathers have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us.

17"Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. 18Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your
