1 Kings 18:30-39
In the Old Testament, revivals were common, but they were different than what we call a revival now. Revivals always came on the heels of a time of national disobedience. When revival came, it was a time of social, political and spiritual change.
Most of us agree that we need revival. We need revival in our personal lives. We need revival in our church life. We stand in need of a revival.What we need to understand is that we will not have revival just because we set aside a week for meeting.
We will not have revival just because we have a great preacher and some singers come in for a few nights to minister. We need to understand the truth that genuine revival is a time when God moves sovereignly among a spiritually prepared people.
