Remnant Revival

 Revival happens to a believer in Yeshua when the depth of their  relationship with Himself increases awareness of God’s constant and holy presence, and often is worked out in a complete turning over of self and one’s pursuits for God’s shaping and direction.  Revival begins in an individual’s heart, humbled by God and before God.  Historically, this sometimes has happened when a group of Christians, praying in a similar heart-felt and biblical manner, seek Him; although it always begins within one’s personal relationship with Yeshua (Jesus).

Revival is often equated when a believer who has wandered away from his First Love, Jesus Christ (Yeshua) but it always yields a growing desire to draw nearer to God and be conformed more into His image and ways. The Lord is calling people to surrender their hearts and minds fully to Him.

Awakening is a term used that describes God’s wooing of hearts, convicting of sins, and turning of hearts toward Himself and away from self or other sources that have taken or are keeping Him out of His rightful place as #1 in one’s heart.  Awakening happens amongst non-Christians, although also within churches- within attendees who’ve never received JYeshua and Savior or have entered into a personal relationship with Him.

An awakening goes beyond the influence of a revival. Revival brings back to life the people of God from a state of slumber and apathy.

A “Great Awakening” comes to a whole nation, changing even the culture of the time.

The Psalmist exhorts us that: “What we have heard and known, what our fathers have told us, we will not hide from our children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord …” (Psalm 78:2-7).

Ask God to bring deep conviction of sin, spiritual brokenness, a holy fear of God and genuine repentance among His people. There will be no revival without these elements and only God can produce them in His people. After all we cannot program or work up genuine brokenness and repentance. (2 Corinthians 7:10)

Pray for deep cleansing, genuine repentance, and spiritual power to engulf pastors and Christian leaders. Revival and spiritual awakening are extremely unlikely without a mighty move of God in pastors and Christian leaders. Renewed pastors are absolutely crucial to a move of God in our day! (Ephesians 6:14-20)

Pray for God to bestow spiritual hunger in His people and draw them to fervent intercession.God has to grant people the genuine faith and the fervent desire for prayer. With all our promotion and programming, we cannot “produce a genuine prayer movement. (Philippians 2:13)

Pray that God will bring loving unity in our churches and a deep harmony between our churches. Many churches need healing among members and many churches need to stop competing jealously with other churches. (John 13:35)

Pray for God to fill His people with a passion to see people saved. (Only God can give a genuine burden for souls.) Until God’s people intensely pray for the lost and do aggressive soul winning revival will tarry. Be sure you are constantly praying for many lost people by name. (Romans 9:1-3)

Pray for God to give His people a passion for missions and starting churches. Great revivals produce an explosion of mission projects, new ministries and new church starts. Only God can grant a genuine passion for missions.  (Matthew 28:19)

Pray that God will call thousands into ministry, missions and Christian service.Many churches are dying for lack of soul winners, teachers and church workers. Furthermore, we can start only as many churches as we have church planters to start them. (Matthew 9:37)

Pray that God will pour out His Spirit like a mighty purifying flood.Ask God to purify our motives as we pray for revival. After all it is possible to pray for revival for selfish or ambitious reasons. Our motives must be solely for: (a) the glory of God, and (b) the increase of the kingdom of God. We must not pray for revival just to solve our own problems or make our church successful in the eyes of men. (James 4:2)

Pray for a mighty move of conviction and salvation upon communities of cultural influence.Some key examples are Hollywood actors and producers, government officials, educators, teachers, and college professors, news and media people, talk shows hosts, comedians, homosexual activists groups, and the music industry. (1 Timothy 2:1-2) Provide specific lists for your congregation.

Specifically pray for God to pour out His Spirit in a fashion even greater than He did in America in 1858 and Wales in 1904. (Ten percent of Wales’ population was saved in five months!) Ask God for a modern day of Pentecost in the United States and Canada. (Mark 11:22-24; John 14:13-14.)

There’s a difference between Revival and Awakening that’s important to first define. Revival happens to Christians.  It can come when God is sought to increase a Christian’s depth of relationship with Himself, an increasing awareness of God’s constant and holy presence, and often is worked out in a complete turning over of self and one’s pursuits for God’s shaping and direction.  Revival begins in an individual’s heart, humbled by God and before God.  Historically, this sometimes has happened when a group of Christians, praying in a similar heart-felt and biblical manner, seek Him; although it always begins within one’s personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Revival is often equated with a Christian who has wandered away from his First Love, Jesus Christ; but it always yields a growing desire to draw nearer to God and be conformed more into His image and ways.

Awakening is a term used that describes God’s wooing of hearts, convicting of sins, and turning of hearts toward Himself and away from self or other sources that have taken or are keeping Him out of His rightful place as #1 in one’s heart.  Awakening happens amongst non-Christians, although also within churches- within attendees who’ve never received Jesus as Lord and Savior or have entered into a personal relationship with Him. An awakening goes beyond the influence of a revival. Revival brings back to life the people of God from a state of slumber and apathy.
