The Great Need for Revival

Revival Must Start in Our Own Lives

We are becoming a nation of lawlessness and violence.

  • We have alcoholic beverages and other drugs to destroy our bodies.
  • We have immorality and perversion to destroy our homes.
  • We have vandalism and mischief to destroy our properties.
  • We have gangs and violence to destroy our schools.
  • We have hatred and bitterness, in the neighborhoods, to destroy our cities.
  • We have false religion and cults to destroy our churches.
  • We have lies and scandals to destroy our government.

What is needed? There is only one solution. The only hope for our country is a sweeping revival. A Heaven sent revival can save any nation! Do you want proof? Read Jonah chapter three and find what happened in ancient Nineveh. Next, read about the Welsh revival of 1904-1905 when the jails were closed because there was no crime.

How can such a revival take place in our country? The revival we so desperately need will not begin in a nightclub, a bar, or a theater. So where would you suppose that revival begins? In the legislature? In the business world? NO! The people in the bar are committed to other things. Those in the theater are looking for pleasure. Those in the business world are buying and selling.

Revival is a Christian word. It is a church word. Revival is for Christians. It is our word! Revival is a gift from God to His people!

Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?— Psalm 85:6

For churches, revival should be normal. Revival ought to be expected among the children of God. Every church service should be a revival service. Every day should be a soulwinning day. Each day, a Christian should walk a little closer with the Lord, worship the Lord a little more fervently, pray a little more earnestly, and seek the lost a little more zealously.

In order for revival to come, I must get right with God. Second, you must get right with God. You and I are part of our beloved country. One by one, each member of our nation needs to get saved, baptized, join a Bible believing church, and get busy obeying Almighty God!

O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.—Habakkuk 3:2b

May God Almighty send a sweeping revival among His people in America and around the world today!
