I’m Still Looking For Revival

Myself, I am still looking for revival to sweep across all of North America and affect 100’s of churches in hundreds of different places all at the same time. Then like a tidal wave engulf the UK and wash up on the shores of France and Northwestern Europe. A revival coming soon near you.

A revival that crosses all the man-made divisions and denominations. A revival with no ‘superstars’ to elevate or tear down. A revival that looks to Jesus, engages culture, and brings repentance and change. A revival with lots of healing, that brings folks closer to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

So many are looking for Jesus to come for his church, I’m looking for him to come to it. Come to it? What exactly does that mean? I’m not entirely sure what that means except it’s a ‘word’ that I keep hearing in the Spirit and the church is going to get closer to Jesus and his people will hear his voice in a profound way.

I look for a revival that will bring with it ‘a changing of the guard’ and a whole bunch of new young leaders.  A revival that will change the face of the American church–the end of ‘churchianity’ and the beginning of greater outreach to the community.

This is what I was looking for when the Lakeland outpouring started and had hoped it would be the beginning of. In spite of all the controversy and division in the aftermath, I am still looking for revival…

I say, Come Lord Jesus and surprise us!         *Top

  1. Thanks for the link (although it should be “Gentle Wisdom”, not “Gentile…”). Yes, I too am still looking for the kind of revival you are looking for. I am still looking for it to come from the remains of Lakeland, all the more likely now that the “superstar” has been taken out of the way.

  2. thanks Peter, wow, can’t believe I put that ‘i’ in there.

  3. Dr. D,
    I admire your heart. It’s hard for me to embrace the concept of the “big end times revival,” though– mainly because of Matthew 24:10-13. Nonetheless, inside, I still want it too.

    When I think about the historic revivals that reached something of the level you write about, I cannot recall any flaky leaders. Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Finney, even McGready, and Seymour were godly men, with no appearance otherwise. What has been foisted as revival of late seems to always involve the flamboyant, the over the top, the inconsitent and unreliable. That’s gotta make even an optimist like you pause and wonder. 😉

  4. P.s. Thanks for the link, my brother.

  5. Thanks SLW-

    I believe in Matt 24:10-13 however I also believe that it is a matter of timing–Is God through with us yet?

    I also believe in Matt.28:18-20 and Matt 24:14–is the gospel really being preached in every nation, to every people and tongue? I am looking for revival to break out in Saudi Arabia and all the Muslim nations before it is all over!

    I agree with you when it comes to leaders, I am looking for a revival that has every eye on Jesus.

    Maybe I am looking for a city like Abraham that I will not see in this life but God has instilled the vision, the hope, and faith for it deep within my soul.

    Blessings,
    Michael

  6. Michael,
    It’s not like we can live in faith, rolled up in a fetal position waiting for the end to come. So all things being equal, I think I’ll join you in longing for and working toward the outbreak of harvest. God bless.

  7. Thanks again SlW, I always appreciate your perspective and your comments.
