We talk about having a "Revival" like we talk about looking forward to Spring. We want the "freshness", the "renewal" and the "purity" around us, but we don't want to change ourselves to experience it to the fullness. We want others to change but we want to continue our selfish ways. Our Churches have become so anemic that they worship GOD as "they" have created HIM in their image, and not GOD as HE is revealed in the Scriptures. Do we really want a "REVIVAL"? Revival is not some emotion or worked up excitement, it is an invasion from Heaven that brings a conscious awareness of GOD; it is a DIVINE interruption of our way of life; Revival is a renewed passion for holiness, righteousness, worship, prayer and witnessing. Acts 3:20, "that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the LORD." Without "Revival" we continue to "clean up the surface" but never scrub the heart. If you were asked what you thought happened in a "REVIVAL"? Would your immediate response be, CATHOLICS, JEWS, BAPTISTS AND PENTECOSTALS all sitting in the same pew with their hands raised, shouting HALLELUJAH!
