 Holy spirit and revival

i have been studying the history of revival and i have come to understand the importance of the Holy Spirit in revival.
The first revival witness by the church came when the Holy Spirit was given. The great mystics of old always crave for one thing and that is the Holy Spirit because they know that if they can get the Holy Spirit down then the revival will come. No generation have ever claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit like us; but no result. I think every christian should read acts 1:8 on there knees

 Re: Holy spirit and revival


Yes sister, there is an unreality in Western countries especially where some can claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit but their lives have no results, no fruit, no witnessing to the lost or compassion for the poor.

The Holy Spirit is not a power we can wield or us but is the third person of the Trinity. It is through intimate relationship with Jesus Christ that we can start to share His heart for people around us and let us lives make a difference.

The lack of revival also is no excuse for us to be lukewarm and not be full of love, mercy, kindness, gentleness, self-control, etc. Revival also comes to Biblical churches that have the right foundation, God I believe does not want to revive some systems of Church that are so far from the pattern that He has prescribed. That is why Revival at times creates new denominations as others were in a condition not suitable to be re-used for God's glory.

Lastly, we have to remember that during a time of spiritual awakening the enemy has worked very hard to establish many cults and wrong Churches, this happened terribly during the second great awakening where cults started in the 100's. This has happened in China with the revival also.

The enemy is always sowing tares with the wheat.
