Revival - Key to Survival
Introduction: 1904 - A MIGHTY SPIRIT of REVIVAL
A simple 4 point message that he was convinced could help God bring revival.
1. Confess all known sin to God
2. Deal with and get rid of any "doubtful" area of your life
3. Be ready to obey the Holy Spirit instantly
4. Confess Christ publicly
I want to carefully look at some of the conditions that God places on the outpouring of revival. (Read scripture text)
I. God is looking for people to revive
Point 1. "If my people"
If here is the beginning of the conditions that God is looking to be met before He will act.
Point 2. "Who are called by my name"
God calls us out from among the world. Being a Christian means that we are meant to stand out from the rest of the world.
II. We must look to God to be revived
Point 3. "will humble themselves"
Why does God desire for His people to humble themselves? The word humble means to be in submission, to live in a state of surrender. When we humble ourselves, we are literally saying to God, you are in control of my life.
III. Once we allow God to bend us, we cannot remain the same
Point 4. "and pray"
One of the key principles of revival is a concerted effort in prayer.
Point 5. "And seek my face"
The Hebrew word for seek means "to intend to find or to deeply desire."
Point 6 "And turn from their wicked ways."
When Evan Roberts spoke to those young people, his first challenge to them was to confess any known sin to God. Revival will never happen in your life until you let go of your sin. Sin is nothing more than pure bondage and it holds you in place like a chain wrapped around your body.
Point 7. "then I would hear from Heaven & Heal their land"
Isn't this what we are really looking for? Isn't this our hearts longing?
Today, I firmly believe that God has the desire to bring revival to this church. The only question that really remains is do you have the desire to be revived? If you want to experience personal revival, today is the day to seek God. If you want this church to see a corporate revival, today is the day to seek the Holy Spirit. If you want our community to see a mighty outpouring of power, today is the day to seek Jesus.
