What is Revival?

Revival means bringing or returning to life, vigour and restoration and is brought about through the manifested glory (presence) of God. 

Revival brings: 

  • repentance
  • holiness
  • salvations
  • miracles
  • the anointing which destroys yokes
  • deliverance
  • joy
  • physical healings
  • emotional healings
  • baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • prophecy
  • refreshing
  • rest
  • blessing
  • igniting 'fires' in the hearts of people

The Lord desires us to become so consumed with revival that we can think of nothing but revival and talk of nothing but revival.  Let our lives be totally oriented toward revival.  If we will do this, others will catch the fever.  Revival fever is catching, and if you will get excited about it, others will too.  This is the hour of revival, and we must become revival oriented.  Speak it every where you go.  Believe for it every waking moment.  Stand on the promise of it.

Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

It is God's time.  If the whole Earth is to be "filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord" that means that our town and our house will be filled as well.  God said it will happen.  Let us stand together in unity and believe for God to bless as He has promised.

Numbers 23:19
God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
Jeremiah 1:12
...for I (God) will hasten (watch over, or stand behind) my Word to perform it.

We are on the brink of the greatest visitation of God the world has ever seen.  Determine to be part of it.

The wind of the Spirit is blowing and it will eventually touch every area of this planet - north, south, east and west and this wind of the Spirit will breathe new life into the spiritually dead and cause them to stand upon their feet as an exceeding great army.

Hunger & Thirst for Revival

Matthew 5:6
Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.

If we hunger and thirst for His righteousness and His glory, He will see to it that we are satisfied.  Let your hunger and thirst for God, grow more and more.

The River

God allows the river to flow as a response to the hunger He sees in us.  The river that flows down from the throne of God, flows down into the very depths of our beings and flows out through us to others. If we are genuinely hungry for revival, we will do whatever it takes to achieve it.  We need to get so hungry that we will respond to God.  If the water is there and the invitation is there and the opportunity is there, what are we waiting for?  It is time to swim on out into the deep river of God.

Ezekiel 47:5
Afterward he measured a thousand and it was a river that I could not pass over; for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.

The water that God is calling us to swim in is wonderful, but unless we start swimming, we cannot know how wonderful it is.   The waters of God are glorious and are deep and pure.  They become "waters to swim in" only if we get in and swim.  So start swimming!  Get your head into the river.  Let the river touch your hearing; let it touch your seeing; let it touch your reasoning faculties; let it touch every part of your life.  It's all in the yielding.  You can get into the river just as quickly as you want to.  You can get into the glory just as quickly as you want to.  If you are hungry enough, you'll yield.  Just get in and let the river carry you out.  God is saying 'Get out there and swim. There are waters to swim in'.
