The real biblical meaning of revival in the Bible is when God’s people realize their need to be spiritually restored and revitalized in their walk with Jesus. It starts at home and then spreads to our churches, communities, cities, and our nation. That is the true revival meaning biblically.

  1. If the churches in America actually did and taught what Christ commissioned us to do, and not be following congregant numbers and money … not following greedy denominations wanting accounting of new (albeit fake temporary) salvations and gross receipts and sending their 10% to big corporate church heads… greed of the church is why they fail, why people would vote for abortion candidates, why people don’t follow God… watered down messages with pop culture mass produced books to make the Christian greed factory richer and let the government take care of the poor and needy… after all churches wouldn’t want to feel used by the poor… Churches have failed completely. They are self worshipping huge monstrosities wanting more money for buildings and paying bills rather than paying out to feed the poor, help others In their community, teach a man to fish. No. They have failed their ONE mission because of greed.

    1. Not all churches my sweet Sister in Christ …the church is full of broken people ..even those that try to lead it … you are Right in that there is no perfect Church ….however God does tell us to not neglect the gathering together of the brethren , so we can encourage each other …. ALL The gold and Silver comes from God, He created it . If we leave a 10% tip at a restaurant (these days it can be 12,15 up to 20 percent for large Groups. Why would we not want to at least give 10 cent out of a dollar to GOD’s House. I consider it a Joy to tithe after all,I get to keep the other 90cents of that dollar. It just doesn’t sound like greed to me , just my reasonable service…..God is a giver ‘for God so loved the world the gave….John 3:16’ I want to follow His pattern and be a giver……just sayin 8-13-2021

    Thanks so much for the definition of revival in this article. A lot has associated revival with noise during prayers,or special days set aside to bombard Heaven with supplication for personal needs or destruction if enemies,when the ‘Weightier matters’ of personal spiritual deadness is neglected.
    Whenever I begin to get dry spiritually,the ministry of the Word of God, with the Holy Spirit,praise and worship,confessing and repenting of every known and unknown sins,reading and meditation on carefully selected Christian literature and sermons on revival, Worship and Prayer,etc, quickens(revives)me,by His grace.
    Scriptures like Psalm42:1-2,27:4,24:3-4,22:3; Isaiah 6:1-8; Revelation 4. There’s power in the Word of God,and the Holy Spirit is ever brooding upon the Word to revive us. Revive us oh Lord! Maranatha!

    I totally agree. The church need revival Greed, unholy competition and comparison has overtaken the priesthood.

  4. The prayer of Habakkuk the prophet on revival is so amazing & as christians, we need such revival in this era of covid19 hardship. Habakkuk 3 :1-19.
    May Yahweh revive us again through Christ Jesus . Amen

  5. The prayer of Habakkuk the prophet on revival in the midst of the year (June/July ) is so amazing & as christians, we need such revival in this era of covid19 hardship. Habakkuk 3 :1-19.
    May Yahweh revive us through Christ Jesus . Amen

    It is obvious that the church has gone off its course and is ripe for a change in direction and restoration of it’s mandate. For that awakening to happen, first, there has to be a dissatisfaction of the present status quo, a personal REVIVAL and restoration to the word of God, prayer and evangelism that wld ursher in the corporate REVIVAL that the church is so much in need. That’s the heartbeat of God. Shallom

  7. Am very interested in your preaching ,l will need more of them to empower my spiritual encounter

  8. I love to earnestly pray the prayers of Psalm 80:18 – “Revive us and we will call upon Your name”; Palm 85:6 – “Will You not revive us again that Your people may rejoice in You?” and Habakkuk 3:1 – “O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years. In the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.” God’s promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14 is always true – “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” We so often lack in humble prayer seeking God Himself and repenting. I write more on Blessings.

    1. Peter at Pentecost (Acts 2) sees that revival fulfilling Joel 2 – “I will pour out my Spirit” – and repeats the call to repent and turn to God so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19-20).
