REVIVAL FIRE

 

Throughout the church history, God raised many individuals to usher in revivals in the churches and the nations.  During revivals God accomplishes more in hours or days than usually results from years of faithful evangelistic ministry.  Though revival involves preaching and evangelism to some extent, revival is far more than evangelism. During the early years of 20th century, revival fires broke out in Wales and many places in England, Scotland, Ireland, USA, India, Korea, Manchuria, China, Japan, Australia, Madagascar, Norway, parts of South America and the Caribbean islands.  In the middle of this century, God sent revival to some of the American Christian colleges and outpoured His Spirit on some of the  Hebrides  islands.

 

The grand Old Testament prophet Elijah is symbolic of a revivalist. Elijah stood up in the midst of the people steeped in worship of Baal, and cried, “The God who answers by fire, he is God” (1 Kings  18:24 ).  Elijah prayed a simple prayer, “O Jehovah, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known today that you are God” when the holy supernatural fire of God descended from the heaven and burned up the sacrifice, wood, stones and dirt and evaporated the water in the trench. When God pours out His revival fire on the earth, it burns up things that are not of God.

 

In this page, let us meditate on the life and the ministry of many such revivalists so that we can follow their footsteps.

 

The ever first revival under the New Testament is recorded in the 2nd chapter of Acts, when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the disciples of Jesus for the first time in the church history.

 

Study of the church history shows that one lone man, totally surrendered to God, burning with passion for the lost souls and with a hunger for revival in the churches, had turned the tide against the evils in the churches, in the governments and the lives of the people. One prayer warrior by the grace of God can be used to turn the tide and prepare the way for a mighty revival. Why cannot you be such a vessel of God?  

 

What is revival?  

 

When men in the streets are afraid to open their mouths and utter godless words lest the judgments of God should fall; when sinners, overawed by the Presence of God tremble in the streets and cry for mercy; when, without special meetings and sensational advertising, the Holy Ghost sweeps across cities and towns in Supernatural Power and holds men in the grip of terrifying Conviction; when "every shop becomes a pulpit; every heart an altar; every home a sanctuary" and people walk softly before God, this is Revival!

Today the word Revival has largely lost its real meaning. Our present generation, never having witnessed the mighty moving of God in nation-wide spiritual awakening such as has taken place in past generations, has little conception of the magnitude of such a "visitation."

Heaven-sent revival is not religious entertainment, where crowds gather to hear outstanding preachers and musical programs; neither is it the result of sensational advertising - in a God-sent revival you don't spend money on advertising; people come because Revival is there! Revival is an "awareness of God" that grips the whole community, and the roadside, the tavern, as well as the church, become the places where men find Christ. Here is the vast difference between our modern evangelistic campaigns and true revival. In the former, hundreds may be brought to a knowledge of Christ and churches experience seasons of blessings, but as far as the community is concerned little impact is made; the taverns, dance halls, and movies are still crowded, and the godlessness marches on. In revival, the Spirit of God, like a cleansing flame, sweeps through the community. Divine conviction grips people everywhere; the strongholds of the devil tremble, and many close their doors, while multitudes turn to Christ!
