I believe this generation is very close to revival. Some parts of the Christian world already seem to experience it. For instance, NewSpring Church led by Pastor Perry Noble, has so many people that are looking to grow closer to the Lord they are having 33 services this Easter. Elevation Church led by Pastor Steven Furtick, had 2,410 baptisms in 2011. I read recently where Saddleback Church led by Pastor Rick Warren is set to launch 12 churches in 12 cities soon. And I can go on and on with awesome and amazing updates all over the United States!
I know this may sound harsh. Maybe brash. Probably a little arrogant. But I am tired of simply watching God pass down the street to go somewhere else where the people really want Him. And here’s the deal: I think you are too! I think you are at the point where you realize that God IS going to move, and your prayers are “Lord don’t pass us by.” However, for some reason there seems to be a disconnect between our prayers for revival and God’s move of revival.
The equation for revival is the same as it always has been:
If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves (admit they don’t know everything and need Jesus), and pray (actually talk with God), and seek My face (actually desire a relationship with God more than anything else), and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
