Let's pray for a revival

We are reaching the end times as per the Bible. Everywhere there is havoc and disrest, which may be due to natural calamities, corruption, immorality, diseases and deaths, hatred, wars, terrorism, disunity or poverty and debt. The church and believers body too is facing its share of calamities and disasters. This is a sign of the end times. As per the Bible, many will lose their faith and godly love. (Mathew 24:12, Luke 18:8) God's commandments and instructions which were kept and followed earlier , may not be given as much importance as before. The hearts of the Pastors and shepherds may not be bleeding for lost souls and for their sheep as before. God's ministry may have become commercialized in many ways. Its purity and integrity may have been lost in the long run. God's people may be compromising with the world and the devil in their everyday lives. As a result, the Holy Spirit may have moved out of people's lives, families, churches and ministries, leaving a chance for the devil to take dominion over these areas. It is in this scenario that the few anointed ones who are only a minority among the vast body of believers, have to take over, to save God's kingdom, his ministry and his name from disgrace, defeat and destruction. As it is evident, the churches, families, ministries and the world in general, are ripe for a revival. A Christian revival is a term that generally refers to a specific period of increased spiritual interest or renewal in the life of a church congregation or many churches, either regionally or globally. But all those who are called born again believers do not have the qualifications to pray and to be a part of a revival. There are a selected few whom God has qualified for this who can turn the world upside down and do exploits for God. They are the ones who have passed through the storm and the fire, those who have taken up their crosses and have followed Christ, those who have become dead to the world and have become alive in Christ, those who have lost their lives for Christ's sake, those who have lost family members for Christ's sake, those who have fought strong spiritual battles against the enemy and have succeeded, those who have received the dungeon and the wilderness training, those who are fully equipped with God's armour, those who are ready to take that careful destroying aim against the enemy, those for whom God's instructions are commands to be followed immediately, those who have a different spirit in them, those who have run away and have escaped the traps of sexual relationships and marital relationships with unbelievers, those who have walked out in faith not knowing where they were going, those who have become the dung of the earth for Christ's sake, those who have been hated by everyone for Christ's sake, those who have become fools for Christ's sake, those who are not afraid of the enemy's threats, those who are ready to become anything for God and those who have the fire of the Holy Spirit in them. Let us pray for a revival in our families, churches, cities and nation! Christa

The harvest is great but the laborers are few.

It all comes down to whether or not youre in the field working.

This isnt something delegated to a select few...or elites.

Its something we all are called to do.

If you have His Spirit, you're annointed....no need for "impartation" or "transference". Thats Old Testament thinking.

Holiness is a must but God will use ANYONE to reach souls because those lost souls are more important than our faults. In the process of being used, God has a way of cleaning us up...but He doesnt avoid using us...even when we are in sin...just because we are used by God doesnt mean we are approved by God in how we are living...we are just available.

We seek "revival " when that is a term we are never commanded to seek...we ARE commanded to awakento righteouness however.

If you have HIS Spirit you are annointed, empowered and cast out into the harvest...we just got people that for whatever reason think,"Thats not my job"

Re: Let's pray for a revival

Revival is coming! It's even at the doors!! The latter rain is about to fall and it will sweep the whole world. In the midst of great evil a great light will shine in the darkness and the glory of the Lord will be seen upon His last day apostles and prophets, and they will walk in His resurrection power! In Jesus name!

Re: Let's pray for a revival

"he doesn't avoid using us even when we are in sin"
you are kidding right.
do you think one can remain in sin and be full of the Holy Ghost at the same time?
