Understanding Revival and Addressing the Issues it Provokes

So that we can Intelligently Cooperate with the Holy Spirit during times of Revivals and Awakenings

Revival is an amazing outpouring of the Holy Spirit as the dew of God’s heavenly blessing descends to revive the Church and saves sinners, as God vindicates His name. But history records that many who have prayed for revival have rejected it when it came because they misunderstood the workings of the Holy Spirit and only wanted God to bless the Church on their terms and not His.

During times of heavenly visitations there are Divine paradoxes; times of solemn commotion and Divine disorder which involves sifting and shaking, repentance, brokenness and confession of sin mingled amongst the shouts of praise and adoration as the Refiner comes to prepare a pure and holy Bride, to glorify Jesus. During revival in the midst of God’s dynamic, the devil will come to infiltrate and imitate so let us understand revival so that we do not reject it when He comes or bring the work of God into disrepute.

Understanding Revival and Addressing the Issues it Provokes; through the use of Scripture and church history reveals how we can intelligently cooperate with the Holy Spirit during times of revivals and awakenings and not reject His workings due to religious affections, physical phenomena or manifestations and that we may be not be caught unaware of the tactics of the enemy.
