It was the early February of 2016 , when i saw a name in my vision of a Man who would travel miles across to preach in Singapore about Revival. Revive Singapore it was. yes, God planted the seed of thought in my heart for revival. Ever since , it has been burning and now all set to flame up . Yes, it is reaching a point of getting noticed.
Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation. Psalm 85:6-7 (NIV)
Revival today has become a series of fiery sermons and a few new people accepting Christ. For others, it may mean a Friday night tent prayer meeting complete with music, inspiring testimonies and prayer.
While, all the above must happen, yet Revival is to do with the heart and not the surroundings.
Revival is to RESTORE your spiritual life that has become stagnant, with no growth and now it needs deep stir once more. True revival marks the beginning of the church will be convicted of sin, Christians will have their faith renewed, backslidden believers will be brought to repentance, and the power of sin will be broken.
Revival itself is reserved for Christians – a person must first be alive in Christ in order to be brought back to life. But the effects of revival must be felt outside the church or it cannot be called revival. Once the church is awakened, it will receive a newfound boldness and enthusiasm for evangelism. The salvation of sinners will follow in due time.
It’s true that the INDIAN community needs and is in desperate need of revival. But in order for revival to come, the church must wake up. And the wake-up call begins with you. Are you hungry for revival? Are you ready to experience restoration?
As we move a together, there will be many who will experience a deep sense of conviction to become a new self by renouncing the old self and impurities in life. There would be those who will cry , there will be those who will be deeply burdened for the lost souls and lost lives. This burden must be translated to action by the power of Holy spirit and you working in partnership to bring the Gospel to as many as possible.
