i like this…
Where in the New Testament do we hear a call to pray for revival?
Where did Jesus ever advocate, we need a big revival to fix this problem we’ve got? I realized, its simply not there.
The emphasis has never been upon, you need a revival. That’s a term out of the old covenant.
Jesus came to start over & bring us a brand new covenant with better promises, a better covenant… A whole new order
So I started thinking through that & realized, he asked us to pray… Your kingdom come
So how did we ever change the script and start saying, Lord, send revival. We beg you for revival. We want to talk you into revival. You probably don’t realize the mess we’re in. If you did, if you ever understood the problems we got, you’d get interested…
We go through all these gyrations, trying to get his attention, & he’s already told us, he wants the kingdom to come!
In fact, Luke 12:32 is…
Fear not little flock, it is the fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
i know many people are passionate about ‘revival’, & i love & respect them. i am too! but i’m with jim on this one… why stick with terminology that is not in the gospels?
