Do We Want Revival? — 4 Comments

  1. Definition of revival
    1: an act or instance of reviving : the state of being revived: such as
    a: renewed attention to or interest in something
    b: a new presentation or publication of something old
    c(1): a period of renewed religious interest
    (2): an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings
    2: restoration of force, validity, or effect (as to a contract)

    Do I want revival?  I certainly do.
    Do I want the King and the kingdom He brings?  Yes I do!

    I don’t believe the two concepts are mutually exclusive or opposed.  I want them both.  I believe they come in tandem with a unified church.  May we stand together in agreement waiting on the Lord to bring Holy Spirit fire to a moribund church.  I’m all in.

  2. “Do We Want Revival?” I believe the better question: Do we want the King and the kingdom He brings? King Jesus never mentions revival, but why do we talk about it ad nauseam? He does passionately proclaim, illustrate, and demonstrate the Kingdom! We may need to lay down the idol of revival at the feet of the King, and go demonstrate, proclaim, and illustrate the Kingdom of heaven!

    Should we continually cry out for something (revival) that seems always beyond our reach and over the horizon, or respond in childlike faith, while entering a Kingdom that is already here? . . . Maybe we need to dry our tears; grow up to maturity in a childlike way, and follow and move with the advancing King! He is still the King of His kingdom! . . . And will we follow the overcoming, powerful, childlike King?

    • I agree, and would add that if we want revival more than we want the Lord, not only should we question our motives, but it is unlikely that we could be trusted with dealing with revival when it comes, as an influx of newly saved souls who will need to be discipled.
