What is Revival?
As an evangelist I am often asked about revival. It is a term usually associated with the ministry of an evangelist. It is also often misunderstood, as we causally refer to specially scheduled meetings as a church as “revival.” It is expected that the visiting preacher, or evangelist, will bring “revival” in his briefcase.
True revival, a biblical revival is more than a specially scheduled meeting, but rather, it is a movement of God that causes Believers to confess and forsake their sin and seek God with renewed passion. Revival cannot be planned or scheduled. It cannot be worked up, it must be prayed down. When revival comes, Believers will have a renewed passion
to reach the world with the Gospel.
Psalms 85:6 “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”
In the attached video, we will look at what revival is NOT, and what is revival. May God revive us again!
