Before every divine visitation, God begins to awaken the consciences of His people first to the possibility of revival, and secondly to the need for revival. How can a thirst for revival begin in the hearts of God’s people unless there is a conviction that such a work of God is even for today? Perhaps the greatest hindrance to God sending revival amongst the so-called remnant Church in this land is the sin of unbelief. Simply put, we do not believe that such a work of revival is possible today. Just mention the word “revival” and with a disheartened look of disapproval, you will be pointed to the headline news which daily announces the moral and spiritual decadence of our nation. But look, Biblically and historically, revival has always come out of moral lows. When God’s people get burdened over the spiritual rot in their own lives and the lives of those around them, then they begin to cry out to God if perhaps He might do something about it!!!
This sermon is part 2 of a 3-part mini-series, looking at revival.
