I continue to hear the cry for Revival in America, and around the World. However, as I see three things must happen.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (HCSB) “My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”
· Transformation of Individuals Hearts within the Church to live a Holy and Righteous Life!
· Reformation within the Church, pastors and members return to the Biblical Mandate of Christ for the church.
· Proclamation of the Gospel to a lost generation that needs to hear about the Love of Christ. Sharing our faith, not our opinions!
Personally, when studying the history of Revival … I don’t see Revival happening on the street corners, in the bars, at the workplace, or in the schools until it first happens in the Church!
I like how J.I. Packer pastor and theologian who at the age of 93 recently passed away put it:
“Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restores a deep sense of God's near presence and holiness. Thence springs a vivid sense of sin and a profound exercise of heart in repentance, praise, and love, with an evangelistic outflow.”
It is time for a major Transformation, Reformation, and Proclamation throughout the World by the Church of God!
