Great Awakenings and Revivals

The Great Awakenings and Revivals of the past.

I truly believe that awakenings, revivals, reformations are divine assaults on society. The word revivals implies first an invigorating of the church to walk with a higher level of spirituality and secondly as a consequence the conversion of sinners. Revival is in many ways the returning of the church to their first love. It is the church hearing what the SPirit has to say to the churches and responding. If you look at the criticisms of the church by the Lord Jesus and the areas He calls us to address, we see to the church of Sardia, “you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.”

Today, many churches are full of powerful programs and look full of life and excitement, yet they are spiritually dead. The rebuke to Laodicea talks about how He sees their “good works” but that they are neither “hot nor cold.” He then calls them to “buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove, and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent.” Revelations 3: 18, 19

To repent means to return to Him with a true heartfelt regret. We see in revivals that the Holy Spirit comes and convicts of sin and as a consequence people are broken. The call of Joel chapter two stands today. It is a wake up call that desires that we return to Him with all of our hearts and render our hearts and not our garments. Much like the children of Israel, the church has seen times of walking in obedience and fulfilling the Great Commission, and then we see seasons where the church is backslidden and asleep. Today, most of the church looks like the world and acts like the world. We need a revival! In this section we talk about revivals and awakenings. My heart is that as you study them, you will be provoked to begin praying for revival and to live at a higher level for Him.

The Cloud of Witnesses Episode 2- A Cry for Revival- the Story of the Ulster Revival of 1859

Ulster is a place that was so divided by bitterness and hate. We all know about the “troubles” which I personally grew up in. Yet in 1859, God moved and changed the nation during that year! We need the SAME! We have the SAME GOD, and HE can do it AGAIN!

I pray as you look around you are being provoked that we need God to move again. Throughout history it as appeared Christianity was over- but God would move as His people cried out to Him. We need Him to move and revival is a divine assault on society.

My guests who I will interview include:
Dr Michael Brown, an expert on revival.askdrbrown.org

Revs David and Michele Vento
Missionaries and seeking to provoke believers to pray

As you watch this video I will seek to show that when God moves in a revival everything changes. Society is changed. This video will encourage you and provoke to get into the secret place with a holy desperation and to seek His face like never before. It will encourage you to gather with other believers and to begin declaring that if He moved in a previous generation He can move in ours.

It is time! We must discern the times and recognize that He is calling us to rend our hearts and not our garments. We are about to see the greatest revivals of all time and we have the honor to be a part of it. We must step up to the plate and be transformed in the Secret Place so that we can truly and effectively be a light and voice for Him in this generation.

We are here because of the price paid in previous generations of the cloud of witnesses who challenge us to stand up and pay the price so this generation can hear the Words of Life.

I pray this video truly provokes and stirs faith on the inside of you. I encourage you to watch it and share it. Let’s make our stand for Jesus. The church’s finest hour is about to come and we can be a part of making history.

There is nothing new under the sun, that which has been will be again. As we look around and see what is going on there are surprising parallels to 1857 the year the Great Awakening started and brought millions to the Lord worldwide.

Today, He is calling to His church to return. We need to know once again the power of the cross and truly return and repent. Then surrender ourselves to Him. Simple acts of obedience can have incredible results and can even spark a worldwide awakening.

Let us return to a holy desperation where we hunger and thirst for Him, His righteousness and His kingdom.

Change is coming and He is about to move. We are honored to live in such an hour. But let us not be found asleep, but rather sober and alert.

My heart’s cry is this episode challenge and provoke you. We need more of Him and less of u

Urgent and bold call to the Church to pledge to pray every day for revival

Guest speaker on video- Dr Michael Brown

Continuing to sound the alarm to the church, this is an urgent call to pray daily for revival. We thank the thousand, including many churches which already have signed up for the prayer challenge to pray daily for revival or an awakening.

All those who call on the Name of the Lord Jesus need to return to Him. We need to repent and allow all hindrances to be removed so He can restore us and manifest His presence and glory through us once again.

The world is on the cusp of the end times. We are privileged and honored to live during this great harvest. But it starts with us returning to Him according to Joel chapter two, awakening according to Isaiah 60, volunteering according to Psalm 110, and allowing Him to:

Remind us who we are in Him and of the heartbeat of heaven- souls for Jesus. When we return to Him and remember who we are and the assignment given to preach His Gospel, souls will come to the knowledge of Him

Restore us so that we can rise up and be a true voice for Him in this generation

The hour is late and the call is urgent. Throughout history there are been dark days before, but when His people cried out God moved. He moved for His Name sake and because of His great mercy. We don’t deserve but He is so merciful and it says He suffers long that all might come to repentance.

We the church of the living God must hear the cry from heaven calling us to wake up. The time is critically short so we must act NOW.

Please join with us and begin to take quality time every day to pray for revival. When

Joel chapter 2 (please read Joel 2) we see a bold clear call to the church to awake up and return to Him. Look around and it is clear the church needs to wake up. We are meant to be a voice and the salt and light on the earth.

It starts as you read Joel by us, His priests, weeping between the porch and the altar. We are to cry out for His people, the church. Listen change will not come by us electing a politician, though I believe we have a responsibility to stand up for His righteousness. No, change comes when we His people get back to crying out for mercy. It starts when out of His love we cry out for His church. For too long it has been lethargic and backslidden. We must return.

As you continue reading chapter two of Joel you see that as we rend our hearts the Father turns to us and restores us. What a powerful day when the church is restored. We are not going out broken and defeated! We are a victorious church. The Greater One abides in us and not in the world. As He restores us He promises to “Then I will pour out My Spirit.” The Greatest Revival comes after we His church return to Him and He restores us. We then begin to fulfill our commission and duty, which is to preach His glorious Gospel and see souls for Jesus.

The victorious Church has the only answers for this world and this generation. We have the ONLY HOPE, JESUS.

I am working on videos to preach the Gospel and reach the hurting and broken and share with them the love of Jesus. So keep watching the page.

But please join me and let us seek heaven. The story of the widow and the unrighteous judge demonstrates that we must be persistent in our prayer. Revival is starting and it is spreading. So time is of the essence.

Please share what city, region you are standing for and what verse in His Word you are standing on. If you are a church please say so and tell us what church. It is an honor to stand with my brothers and sisters in the Lord and to be honored to be a part of the greatest revival and harvest on the earth.

Please share this and like (which we will take as a declaration you are taking up the challenge). This is not a denominational thing. This is a Body of Christ stand!
Please check out the video as I will give more information and talk how this upcoming revival is about a revolution of His love being manifested in His church and through His church.
