What Is A Revival

Exactly what is Revival?

I'm really not sure what revival is. Can it be when people get saved in a meeting?

Revivals began in the hearts of believers. Some Scriptures and there are plenty of them>>>Acts 2:1-5, Jonah 3:4-10, A Little testimony: I said to God one day, I am always saying things to Him asking Him questions: I said, "How were you able to stay focus with all the distractions around you", And He had plenty of them? God said to me, "I could not afford not to".

once upon a time a false minister determined that the money plates would become overfilled with money when his brainwashed followers were caught up in an emotional frenzy

a great sales tactic if there ever were

a revival is neither of the choice of a b or c

how about none of the above

look to Holy Scripture to see that no such thing exists ...there is no "revival" and MOST importantly not one of the answers is IMPLIED in Gods Word

although many who have been duped into the MAN MADE "REVIVAL" HOAX have been TOLD by their false ministers which scriptures to read and believe support a "revival"

Acts 5:34,35,38,39 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space, And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men...And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it, lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

I believe revival is all the above.god has no respect of person therefore when he moves it can have a major effect on any & everyone in his holy spirit presence.

Revival begans in the hearts and minds of God's people. So I would have to say B my best answer. Unbelievers, no revivals. There has been a lot of talk about revivals. I have never seen much excitment in this among church going people. Now, I am beginning to see why. And if it should start it could be all a fake. So be aware!
---catherine on 3/10/09

The Gospel of Truth of Fire and Power of the Resurrected Christ should once again be preached in the churches, and also outside the churches. Not only should there be a revival in the country but there should be a revival first in the hearts of Gods people who go to church, but with a willingness to preach the Gospel of Truth to their families and to every unbeliever they meet in their jobs and bring those unbelievers to their churches to be born-again.

Revival does not start in the country. It starts in the heart of every born-again believer who has an urgency of seeing those saved that dont know Christ and are on the way to hell, and that is their mission, to get those people saved.
---Harry on 3/8/09

I believe that a revival could be all of the above answers. I was once lost but now I am found. I was once weak and now I'm strong. I have a deeper love for the Lord than before. I have been revived.

Revival is when we receive RENEWAL OF ZEAL and this creates a refreshing. when we lose focus as christians and our zeal for the Lord becomes cold, what we need is a renewal of zeal and refocusing and this is what we call revival.
when our zeal is renewed, our faith is re-activated and alot of good things eg. miracles happen as a result. stay blessed and receive daily revival in your soul. Amen

Revival, Jesus is not looking for another revival, He is looking for a Body that will say what they hear Him say, and do what they see Him doing. He has been given that right. Ephesians 1:last several verses. Will He cause a Revival? yes, to gather in His Body.

I look back into the bible where there were 120 people gathered together in one accord, all agreeing in prayer, I wish I was there. You can have two people agree on what color the sky is let alone God's word. So how are we supposed to come together in one mind and one accord if we can't even agree on the simple things? Too many people have hand me down religion. Their great-grandparents believe a certain way, and so are they. People just needs to wake up and except the truth.

A revival is a time to reflect on Christian hearts and renew our strength in Jesus Christ as well as bring new hearts to Christ's altar. It's a powerful, uplifting, confirmation time in which God's power is stronger than every Sabbath's sermons and music.
---Karen on 6/12/08

Revival begins with a change of heart in one person.That person through the agency of the Holy spirit effects others. It does not matter the age of the person, it can be a young child or an aged man. U can be rich or poor. there is no special rules other than Being U and in touch of the HOLY SPIRIT

revival does mean an awakening, but it has a life even outside of that! it's a refreshning to god's war wereay soldiers and a brand new start to the unbelievers who will her his voice! it's a total change naturally and spiritually. like a cool breeze on a warm day or that first sip of cold water on a very hot day it can be mind blowing and humble all at the same time. in short revival is necessary in this life no matter what stage of god your in or if you have never even met him.
---steph on 6/12/08

Revival refers to a time of reawakened interest in religious faith. Another revival definition would be to recover, repair or restore. Compare Hosea 10:12, which says: "Sow to yourself in righteousness, reap in mercy, break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord till He come and reign righteousness upon you."
---Nadine on 6/12/08

I would think that re in revival is important. A saved person can grow weary,get spiritually lazy,etc...and need a touch to the heart from theLord. He is the one that saves,grows and sustains.Psalm 138

Revival begins with the individual person, then the individual will be able to see others saved by the Only & ONE Salvation Plan that God's Word offers,which is found in Acts 2 v's 37-40 & it Fulfills Matt. 28 v's 19-20. Thank you.

When some one passes out you revive them. Heaven is dripping down revival, we are awaiting a huge wave coming from west to east. It is starting. Can you hear the sound?
---Lynn on 6/5/08

When people pray for hours, weeks and months and wait upon the Holy Spirit to move, then revival will happen. We do not direct the Holy Spirit. He comes when HE is directed to come. Real revival must start in the hearts and minds of Christians who are willing to wait upon the Lord for HIS timing.
---KarenD on 6/4/08

When people can lay their differences aside and come into one mind and one accord. But until then, how can the Holy Ghost move like he needs to? He can't. Too many people are hung up on religion instead of just letting go and agree on the word of God. It is hard for God to have a revival if people can't even agree on the word of God.
---Rebecca_D on 6/3/08

A revival is a reawakening and restoration to life, strength, and vigor. It is to revive. Healing is revival because it is restoration. Getting saved is not revival, it is an awakening, not a reawakening.

---tom2 on 6/2/08

A service of Revival is to Revitalize the hearts and nature of previously Christian Believers. Other things may take place in such a series of services but that is it's intended purpose.

No person can get saved of his own volition he/she simply can come to an understanding of their dependence upon God. And if God has previously chosen them, become aware of their ransom and adoption into the family of God with Christ as their brother. with all the fill rights of that membership.
