Revival Thoughts

Written by: Gene

As I have been meditating on the Word given to me about the upcoming revival, that the Lord is bringing to those who are looking for it, I feel compelled to explain where it is coming from through scripture.

If there is one thing I know about revival, it is that we have everything at our disposal to be revived. I read the Word of God, and it revives me. I listen to the Holy Spirit as He shows me things about God through the Word, and it revives me. I meditate on the faithfulness of my loving God, and I am revived.

God isn’t going to bring a forced revival to a people who don’t truly want to submit to Him, but He is looking for that “remnant” who is actively seeking Him and preparing for His presence.

Like Luke 18:-7-8 reminds us, it is those who cry out to Him daily for His justice, mercy, grace, and will to be done (to list a few), will He show up in a mighty way to deliver them.

It will be this group, that will usher The Lord into our presence so that we will be able to bring the harvest that is so great. A revival that does not end up drawing the lost to Christ, isn’t a revival at all.

It will be this revival that helps the believer endure the persecution, that comes from the rapid snowballing effects of sin in this world, that is ready to blow like a time bomb against everything that is good and holy (2 Timothy 3).

It will be the revival that changes the church “in a moment” into the glorified church that God intended it to be as spoken of in 1 Corinthians 15, because “the natural must happen first before the spiritual v.46” 

It will be the revival that changes us from corruptible into incorruptible, and ushers in the Kingdom of God.

This will be a critical time, and we must keep oil in our lamps (Matthew 25:1-13), and be on guard against the deceiver (2 Thessalonians 2).
