Are there words to even describe what a Revival actually should be? Many times we may think of them as being a “Revival Meeting” which is what has been my recall of them – a Summer Pulpit Revival Series for instance or a Winter Revival. Many of us have seen or heard the following verse of Scripture referenced, as is the title for this Series built upon:
“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”
Psalm 85:6 | King James Version
When the state of our world is contemplated, how we have squandered our religious freedoms and released our values, it reminds me that the Voice of the LORD should be our director — not one we at all points turn away from. Habakkuk shared his realization to the LORD in this manner at the beginning of this Verse of Scripture:
“O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.”
Habakkuk 3:2 | King James Version
The Bible reminds us, from the Word given unto Paul, written in Romans, the charge of how our lives are to be aligned. The world does NOT do this and sad to say, MANY Christians have no idea what they have been Saved from or Saved unto as they aimlessly wander (and wonder) around.
“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”
Romans 14:8-9 King James Version
What We Are All To Be Doing Right Now
The header above will strike most folks odd… Look at it, almost a brain twister isn’t it? Your mind wants to say “What We All Are To Be Doing Right Now”, but the words “We Are” are together on purpose. WE ARE, All of us, to:
- Abide In Him
- Doeth Righteousness
- Have Confidence
- Hope In Glory
- Not Be Ashamed
- Pray Unto The Father
- Tell Our Own Testimony
- Sharing The Gospel
- Walk With God
This Series being built upon a WONDERFUL time our family has had for what God has done in all of us through a godly man who was willing to do what God the Father has called him to do in a time aptly named a Winter Revival at our church. Bro. Capaci was faithful to deliver, but each of us has to be faithful to be revived!
How does the above list describe your life? The verse following is the key builder to showing us how it should be!
