NO! IT MUST BE A MOVEMENT FORGED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD!
As I wrestled with these questions, I picked up Leonard Ravenhill’s book on “Revival God’s Way” and opened to where I stopped reading weeks ago and found these words; “Any true revival can be proven by the fact that it changed the moral climate of people, a church, an area or nation.
· It cannot be organized.
· It cannot be subsidized.
· It cannot be advertised.
· It cannot be computerized.
· It cannot be regularized.
· It cannot be rationalized.
· It cannot be denominationalized.
· It cannot be nationalized.
Many people express an interest in revival. There are not so many deeply concerned about it, and fewer still burdened for it, still fewer heartbroken for it…it is imperative!” (Pages 63-64).
What change is taking place in your heart? Is it moral? Are you heartbroken for change?
