What is True Revival?

Psalm 85:6 Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?

Definition of Revival:
Revival is a supernatural revelation of God's awesome glory, irresistible power and perfect holiness that revives, or restores life, and brings hope and faith back into the hearts of God's people. Eze iel !":5 The #pirit li$te% me up an% &rought me into the inner court' an% &ehol%, the glory o$ the (or% $ille% the temple) Revival moves God's people out of the realm of the natural into the realm of the supernatural. Revival comes into the spirit of God's people as they are overwhelmed with the awesome glory of the manifested presence of God. * +orinthians ":,8 -ut .e all, .ith unveile% $ace, &ehol%ing as in a mirror the glory o$ the (or%, are &eing trans$orme% into the same image $rom glory to glory, just as &y the #pirit o$ the (or%) , #amuel ,/:6 0Then the #pirit o$ the (or% .ill come upon you, an% you .ill prophesy .ith them an% &e turne% into another man) The irresistible power of God is evidenced in true revival by the life-transforming, supernatural manifestations that occur in the bodies of God's children as they encounter the irresistible power of God's presence. 1evelation ,:,2 3n% .hen 4 sa. 5im, 4 $ell at 5is $eet as %ea%) -ut 5e lai% 5is right han% on me, saying to me, 06o not &e a$rai%' 4 am the 7irst an% the (ast) 8ohn ,8:6 Then 9 .hen 5e sai% to them, 04 am 5e,0 9 they %re. &ac an% $ell to the groun%) :ar 5:*; 4mme%iately the $ountain o$ her &loo% .as %rie% up, an% she $elt in her &o%y that she .as heale% o$ the a$$liction) 8o& 8:*, 5e .ill yet $ill your mouth .ith laughing, an% your lips .ith rejoicing) Ephesians 5:,8 3n% %o not &e %run %issipation' &ut &e $ille% .ith the #pirit, .ith .ine, in .hich is

As God reveals imself to mankind in revival, an overwhelming awareness of the absolute holiness of God brings true repentance into the hearts of saints and sinners alike. This repentance is followed by an awareness of God's unconditional love that brings an overwhelming fullness of !oy into the hearts of believers as they become saturated in the glory of is presence.
