What is True Revival?

Revival is defined as an improvement in the condition of something or someone. It is to recover, to rally, to pick up, and to turn for the better. It's an upturn and an upswing. It's a reintroduction, a restoration, and a resurrection. 

In order to revive something, it first has to have already existed. You can’t revive something if it was never there in the first place. 

When we talk about revival, it’s not a subject for those who don’t know Christ. It’s for Christians— followers of Jesus. It is a reminder that there needs to be an awakening and refreshing in our spirit. 

Revival should leave a legacy. Revival is meant to have lasting impact on a city, a community, a church, a nation, and the nations . Revival is God's military tactic that concentrates His resources for a vital blow at a crucial moment."

Revival is God’s military tactic! Revival in its true form is an attack on the forces of darkness. It’s a victorious way to drive out the enemy and take ground for the Kingdom of God. 

We have seen revival in the past. If we are to see revival again Jesus must be lifted up, if not it's not revival. If a person, personality, location, or even a church takes the fame from God, it’s not true revival. True revival stirs up your love for God and your love for people. True revival happens more on the inside than it does on the outside. 

Here’s the test: if inward change has not taken place, it’s not true revival. 

How do you know inward change is happening? What are the signs? What is the fruit? 

The fruit of revival is LOVE. 

“Then we will not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭80:18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Father, in Jesus name awaken our spirits, ignite a fire in our soul, return us to our first love, “your son Jesus”. We need revival, we ask for revival and we pray that you will grant us revival do again what you’ve done before in Jesus name.
