    Many people who are don't realize the death they walk in every day.
    A revival is not going to "resurrect them". It's going to make them feel good, which like any high, soon falls away and you are right back where you were.

    I daresay you have a lot to learn, to say the least.
    Revivals are not in the Bible, so I guess I remain ignorant, afayac.

    God doesn't want us to stagnate... He is alive... He wants us to not only read our Bibles but to make use of what is in there: a roadmap that leads to His Holy Mountain.
    The Holy Mountain is Jesus. If we are in Him, we are there permanently.

    In your opinion. God brings revival to awaken dry bones. His Purposes are always satisfied. His Word never returns to Him void.
    There is nothing about "awakening dry bones" in the NT. When one is in Christ, they are complete, at peace, and satisfied - which means overflowing with love and gratitude, praise and worship.

    You're preaching to the choir.
    A revival is not going to "resurrect them".
    That is exactly what God does in most revivals. It's why it is called: "Revival."
    It's going to make them feel good, which like any high, soon falls away and you are right back where you were.
    Only silly persons are carried about by their feelings.
    Revivals are not in the Bible, so I guess I remain ignorant, afayac.
    There is a LOT that God makes available to us that isn't explicitly spelled out in His Holy Word. That is exactly why He designed His Book to be a roadmap to guide us into a dynamic relationship with Him through His Spirit.
    The Holy Mountain is Jesus.
    Symbolically, I guess you could say that. It is also His Dwelling-place, His Holy Presence, which will be our goal for our temporal lifetime.
    If we are in Him, we are there permanently.
    Anyone can fall from any level. Be careful when you think you stand; lest you fall.
    There is nothing about "awakening dry bones" in the NT.
    So?
    When one is in Christ, they are complete, at peace, and satisfied - which means overflowing with love and gratitude, praise and worship.
    So, when you were saved you were transfigured and now have a glorified body?!?

    God does not speak of revivals in His written Word.

    That is the basis of revivals - feelings and emotions. Which is why they don't last.

    The work of the Holy Spirit is expressly spelled out in His Holy Word. Revivals are not "listed".

    That is exactly why He designed His Book to be a roadmap to guide us into a dynamic relationship with Him through His Spirit.
    The "roadmap" does not include revivals.

    Symbolically, I guess you could say that. It is also His Dwelling-place, His Holy Presence, which will be our goal for our temporal lifetime.
    Jesus lives in us, has made His home in us. You can't get any closer than that

    So? So, when you were saved you were transfigured and now have a glorified body?!?
    Spiritual, not physical. We can't take anything with but what is in our spirit/soul/mind/heart > not physical, spiritual.

Putting new wine into new wineskins. Rushing mighty wind filling men with The Holy Ghost. Born again. It's all over Scripture. You're just not hearing God.

    You're entitled to your opinion. God uses broken vessels. He maketh it yet again another.
    Jesus lives in us, has made His home in us. You can't get any closer than that
    Yes, but so many people make of God what they want Him to be. He wants to make His Home in us. Not our home. Not some preacher's idea of His Home. Not church on Sunday and living for one's belly all week. Home.

    He did NOT finish His Work in you the moment you were saved. He is still working on you or you'd be home by now.

    That is not quite what a revival is. It does not bring to life that which is dead.


    1: an act or instance of reviving : the state of being revived: as

    a : renewed attention to or interest in something

    b : a new presentation or publication of something old

    c (1) : a period of renewed religious interest (2) : an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings

    2

    : restoration of force, validity, or effect (as to a contract)


    You're entitled to your opinion. God uses broken vessels.
    We agree on this.

    But a revival, according to your position revives that which is dead. A person who is in Christ is not dead, so why would they have to be revived?

    Yes, but so many people make of God what they want Him to be. He wants to make His Home in us. Not our home. Not some preacher's idea of His Home. Not church on Sunday and living for one's belly all week. Home.He did NOT finish His Work in you the moment you were saved. He is still working on you or you'd be home by now.
    He HAS made His home in us. Not "going to" or "wants to". When one believes, the Holy Spirit indwells, that is making His home in us - the Temple of the Holy Spirit, just like God "lived" or resided in the OT Temple.

    What a revival does, as you have stated here is: a preacher's idea of His home, living for one's belly, etc.

    I did not say the work within is finished when one is saved. I said, Jesus' work was finished on the cross aka salvation in full [forgiveness of sins, eternal life, the spiritual blessings of God in Christ].

    We are changed to be made in the image of Christ. We run the race with our eyes fixed on Him. That is not a revival, it is simply living in Jesus, through Him and for Him. It is a choice that people make. Revivals do not "fix" lethargy - they only emotionalize the Gospel into a mountain top experience that does not last making people fall back into their old routines because what they experienced is not a true response to the Gospel of Christ.

    Life in Christ is not about being revived every other day - it's about moving forward steadily in His grace, strength, mercy, and love through pain and suffering and sickness, in health, in good times and bad, bearing one's cross daily. No one wants to hear that at a "revival" - they want to hear all about the good stuff and have a warm fuzzy experience.

    Because empty dead religion has gotten ahold of them and they believe they are already as 'right-as-rain' and so: cannot be taught anything. They've died in their empty, dead religion and inside them they are full of dead men's bones.

    That isn't revival, that's churchianity. God wants to bring 'Christians' into a one-on-one relationship with Him through His Son. Without that: no one will survive what is coming.

    In the days of Ezra the prophet, Israel was in much the same state as the Church today. Happily, however, some of the leaders became convicted that they had been neglecting the Word of God — especially that part which was addressed to them: the law of Moses.

    As a result they built for Ezra a pulpit on which to stand and read the Scriptures to the people (Neh. 8:4). “From morning until midday” he read to them, while others mingled with the audience and “caused the people to understand.”
    “So they read in the book, in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense,” [with the result that] “all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions [gifts] and to make great mirth because they had understood the words that were declared unto them” (8, 12).
    Similarly, after our Lord had explained the Scriptures to the two disciples on the way to Emmaus, they said to each other:
    “Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the Scriptures?” (Luke 24:32).
    Well-meaning groups and individuals have for decades been praying in vain for a true spiritual revival in the Church, but the only sure road to revival is a renewed interest in the Bible, and especially in what God there says to us in the Epistles of Paul.


    When we become convicted of our neglect of God’s Word to us as found in the Epistles of Paul; when men of God “study” to “rightly divide” the Word and begin teaching it from the pulpit, a great spiritual revival will inevitably follow but, alas, most of God’s people are too complacent, too satisfied with a shallow profession to enter into this blessed experience. However, as we study the Word of God for ourselves, and especially that part of His Word which applies particularly to us, we, like the Israelites of Ezra’s day, will experience the joy of understanding God’s love letter to us.

    Not a single cluster of living fruit was, or ever will be, harvested from the tree of legality. Law can only produce “dead works,” from which we need to have conscience purged just as much as from “wicked works.”

    A revival is not going to influence cold dead religion. Religion was never designed to do anything other than to put people in bondage to be dependent on that system, not on the Lord. It's a false dichotomy - come up with a revival to get people stirred up to stay in the same dead system.

    Again: everyone is entitled to their opinion.That isn't revival, that's churchianity. God wants to bring 'Christians' into a one-on-one relationship with Him through His Son. Without that: no one will survive what is coming.
    And that comes by being devoted to the Lord. I often think of Mary Magdalene who loved the Lord so very much. He who is forgiven much, loves much. A revival will not stir people up whose faith has gone cold. It is like putting a bandaid on a gaping hole, and it's going to bleed out anyway.

    What is coming that a good solid believer in Christ cannot endure?

    I'm certainly glad that Daddy Seymour didn't think that way, or the Azusa St. Revival never would have taken place and the current Pentecostal movement would never have happened. Since it has, millions have been saved, baptized in The Holy Spirit and many have been healed, delivered and set free from demonic forces.
    And that comes by being devoted to the Lord. I often think of Mary Magdalene who loved the Lord so very much. He who is forgiven much, loves much. A revival will not stir people up whose faith has gone cold. It is like putting a bandaid on a gaping hole, and it's going to bleed out anyway.
    God doesn't take small steps. He brings what He wants when He wants. He usually does so through revival.


    When one reformer made a pole with two snakes intertwined, as a standard for the people to look to for healing, a nation was saved. When one reformer lay naked in the streets, that same nation was saved again. When one reformer was sold into slavery, they were saved again. When one reformer ate locusts and wild honey and preached repentance, many were baptized. When one reformer nailed his thesis to the vatican door: the protestant movement began, leading billions to the Truth. When one reformer sat outside of Bible college classrooms (because 'coloreds' weren't allowed to attend that Bible college) the Pentecostal movement began. When one little girl spoke to the congregation in Brownsville Assembly the 'River' movement began. Sorry, but God uses revival. Whether you understand His Ways or not or whether you believe He is alive or not.
    What is coming that a good solid believer in Christ cannot endure?
    Death, maybe...

    Revelation 6:11
    And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    I don't want to be put to death early and then be asked why I wasn't aware of what was coming so that I could avoid it. I want to be told of things that are about to happen. I want my death to have some meaning, should I be alive when the Antichrist takes over the earth.

    John 16:13
    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

    God wants us to know what is about to happen. He is more than willing to show us. We just have to ask.

    If you are speaking of the Americanized Church/Business where we pay leaders 6 figure salaries and have members attend a rock concert every Sunday morning for putting a $20 bill in the plate......NO a revival is not possible. The connection is a codependent emotional-economic connection rather than a God - Human connection.

    Rev 3:14 "And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:
    Rev 3:15 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
    Rev 3:16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
    Rev 3:17 Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—
    Rev 3:18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
    Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
    Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
    Rev 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
    Rev 3:22 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." ' "
    My theology is that the elect of Israel became the scattered church among the nations, and when filled up with the full number of gentiles who believe to become one with them, then Christ will return and gather them, and God will then pour out His wrath on the unbelievers of both Jew and Gentile.

    "Western Church." How myopic.

    Not according to scripture, but its all Pentecostals talk about. They are not interested in the truth as revealed in scripture.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    Revival? ... ummm, who died?
    Some drink at the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle.

    Give us a break.

    If God saves one soul that is wonderful, if He saves two or three how wonderful, but if He saves by the hundreds or the thousands then something more remarkable is going on.

    Whether you look at the bible or church history it is quite plain that there have been times when God has worked with power in a special way. During the 18th century so many were brought into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ of all ranks and social position both in Britain and the fledgeling U states of A that society as a whole was transformed and that for the good.

    You call it what you like, I will call it revival. It is happening on other continents.
