What is revival, and why is it important? What makes revival happen? Is God calling for revival right now? The answers to these fundamental questions will shape our understanding of revival–and therefore, our behavior.
We answer, “Revival is getting right with God and saving sinners.” Revival is a new beginning of obedience to God. When we take seriously Jesus' command, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect,” we repent and receive the Spirit of Christ to live in us an make us holy.
Then, we begin to cry out to God for the Pentecost power of the Holy Spirit. When God answers, many individuals get right with God in a short period of time. The result? The transformation of entire cities, laws, and the culture. Truly, the kingdom of God comes on the earth as it is in heaven!
God is willing right now to pour out his Spirit in revival power. But, we must meet the conditions. Will you get clean with God, and keep asking him to send the Pentecost power of the Holy Spirit until he does?
