Revival is NOT the ORDINARY result of ORDINARY work. Revival is always EXTRAORDINARY! Revivals are not explosions; they are spiritual awakenings.
Habakkuk 3:2, "O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, REVIVE thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy."
Psalm 85:6, "Wilt Thou not revive us again: that Thy people may REJOICE in Thee."
Revival produces extraordinary results.
When REVIVAL comes, we will be overwhelmed by a spirit of conviction of sin. Conduct that has always seemed acceptable will appear unbelievably wicked.
When REVIVAL comes, agony over sin will be so great that the thought of prolonging life in the midst of such wickedness will be intolerable. From the depth of a person’s being will come the cry, "O God, save me from myself and sin, from my wickedness and depravity."
When REVIVAL comes, long forgotten sins against members of the Body of Christ will be remembered with great grief.
Those who have sinned in private will make their confession before God whom they have wronged. Individuals who have sinned against other individuals will go to those persons and make their peace. A watching world will stand in astonishment as Christians who have lived like heathens now begin to manifest the love of Christ for one another.
When REVIVAL comes, prideful self-centeredness will no longer be excused. Long habits of self- indulgence will be broken.
When REVIVAL comes, we will re-focus upon the Cross of Christ.
When REVIVAL comes, people may expect to have their well-laid plans and ambitions changed. God's timing, God's purpose, God's plan will rule the day.
When REVIVAL comes, there will be an intense interest in the Word of God. The principles of the Word of God will no longer be relegated to discussion on Sunday, but lived on a daily basis.
When REVIVAL comes, agony of souls will inflame us. Prayer for the eternal welfare of others will become a passion. The results of Revival will be a reaping of a great evangelistic harvest. Souls will be saved as the church will grow and the fruit will remain.
When REVIVAL comes, holiness will become a prime object of life. "To be like Jesus" will become the theme song of the revived.
When REVIVAL comes, prayer will become pure delight. It will be the "sweet hour of prayer."
In Psalms 85:6, "Will thou not REVIVE US AGAIN, that Thy people may rejoice in Thee." Revival is "an extraordinary moment of the Holy Spirit producing extraordinary results." What we need is a great awakening in our midst, in our homes, in our lives and in our church. Someone said, "When the church is aroused to their duty, men will be swept into the kingdom. A WHOLE CHURCH ON ITS KNEES IS IRRESISTIBLE.”
Revive us again; Fill each heart with Thy love.
May each soul be rekindled With FIRE from above.
Hallelujah, Thine the glory; Hallelujah, Amen.
Hallelujah, Thine the glory; Revive us again!
