 If We Want to See a Revival...

If We Want to See a Revival... “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Psalm 85:6 nkjv).

A revival is a spiritual awakening. And though we can’t bring about a revival in our own strength, we can prepare the way for one.

I was around for the last great spiritual awakening, the Jesus Revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. And I can identify five things we did regularly.

(1) We went to church with a sense of expectancy. In other words, no one ever came late to church, because we were there to meet with the Lord and worship Him. Yes, we need anointed preaching today, but we also need anointed listening. That means going to church and listening to God’s Word with expectation.

(2) We participated in heartfelt worship. Back then, contemporary Christian worship was effectively coming alive before our very eyes. We sang simple choruses, usually Scripture set to music, and we engaged in genuine, whole-hearted worship.

(3) We had a hunger for the Bible. The Bible was taught in all of our church services, not merely referenced. We studied it, and we consumed it. When we’re doing well spiritually, we’ll be hungry for the Bible every day. We need to start every day with the Word of God.

(4) We invited people to come to Christ in every service. And they did—ultimately by the thousands.

(5) We believed that Jesus was coming back. Yes, that was more than 40 years ago. But I still believe that Jesus Christ is coming back. We’re just 40 years closer. In fact, we’ve never been closer to the return of Christ than we are at this moment. And if we really believe that Jesus is coming back, then it will impact the way we live.

If we want to see another Jesus Revolution in our nation, if we want to see a revival, then we need to do revival-like things.

 Re:

Amen brother. These 5 keys are you are sharing are 5 signs of life in a believer. It is a good litmus test for us today, are we doing these things even though there is not a corporate revival happening, are we digging into God and His Word?

Can we see revival again before we die or the Lord comes back?

 Re:

Good question NP.

Did God love the hippies more than today’s kids lost in a technological haze?

Perhaps if just the right people pray just the right amount and just the right kind of prayers and just enough people repent just the right way and if enough people read their Bibles just the right amount we will see a revival.

I suspect God will send revival if He wants to, irregardless of the above factors.

 Re: If We Want to See a Revival...

Thanks for this reminder brother. God has always had conditions on the moving of His Spirit. Movements of God have been spontaneous but they did not occur in a spiritual vaccum. Rather they are the gracious outpouring of His Spirit on a humble and contrite people who have been seeking Him with singleness of heart and mind. True others ( lukewarm and lost) get caught up in the river of God's love but it always begins with the seekers. I pray my generation will seek and not stop till they receive the Blessing.

There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.

 Re:

Define “united prayer”.

How many must unite and in what manner must they unite?
