  Yes! This is the Great Need of the Church today!

  Yes! God is merciful and can sovereignly bring it about!

  Sometimes. It is not that important to me I'm saved and that is enough.

  No! The times of Revial and Awakenings are over so why bother.

  No! God has ordained things to be as they are.

  No answer. Skip this survey, I do not care to vote on this topic.

Recently I listened to a clip of a preacher speaking on REVIVAL

who stressed the I, I, I, I statements found in Ezekiel 36:16-38

Over and over again the LORD says
I will ...
I will ...
I will ...

'not for your sake'
BUT FOR MY HOLY NAME'S SAKE

Oh! if you long for revival please take it to heart the PROMISE He Himself gives AND Pray and Seek Him for it because...

Ezek 36:37
Thus says the Lord GOD:
“I will also let the house of Israel
INQUIRE OF ME TO DO THIS FOR THEM: ....

Sadly you are too much on the mark of what I will call "the establishment" in churches beating a passion for a real experience of Christ out of new or revived believers. Makes them look bad.
Makes you wonder whose side the churches are on, eh?

But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations. And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house? And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.
2 Chronicles 7:19-22 KJV

The devil must be very clever to get the Lord angry with his own people. But then, this is where our human responsibility comes in.

That is, until it is KNOCKED out of them, just as a furious householder might swat a moth because it is buzzing around the light bulb.
My dear friends, Christianity is NOT a CONCEPT, it is a matter of being RECONCILED to GOD, and that by God himself. If doctrine is soooo important to the church, then why is it no-one is preaching and teaching on the doctrine of the fundamental purpose of Christianity, namely, the experiential and experimental angle? Without this, we will degenerate into a bunch of cold-hearted theologians, and miss the most valuable blessings the Lord has for us.
Oh that God would enlighten us as to our true, poor state, even though we be born anew.

Biblicist
Limited space here

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—
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.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Eternal Life is to know the Father and Jesus Christ whom He has sent NOT JUST THINGS ABOUT GOD and PLAYING CHURCH

Jesus told us wherever 2 or 3 gather together in His Name THERE He is in the midst. IMHO if He is THERE people can tell that He is

So I agree with John UK. It would be a blessing for our churches to humble ourselves before the Lord and seek His face and cry out to Him that He might cleanse us from our sin and REVIVE US AGAIN Until we are so forgiven, cleansed and CHANGED BY GOD, filled and led of the Spirit we truly meet together In His Name and know His Awesome Power and Glory like in Acts.

2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
Or does this not apply to churches, as most revivalists and those who preach on revival believe?
1. The verse does not suggest that normal life in Israel was to come to a complete stop until the Lord heard the prayer.

2. The promises that God makes, he will fulfill. But, we dare not dictate to God the timetable. The promise itself says nothing of time!

Often God tests even the repentance of his people by withholding blessings for a season!

Have a great weekend and catch you next week D.V.

I don't think that generalisations are helpful. Every church is different. One would hope that one's advice would be tailored to each as necessary, as in the book of Revelation.

Where in the addresses to the Revelation churches do you read John's advice? viz. that all church services and activities should come to a halt and the people should concentrate solely on repentant prayer?

That would NOT be my advice. My advice would be "put your house in order" - repent, put right what needs to be put right, do those things that you did when you first fell in love with the Lord, show the same zeal, affection etc.
BUT don't stop the worship services, or the Bible study etc because these are all means of grace!! AND why add outright DISOBEDIENCE to all the other sins? Do you suppose God will hear you more for this?
Me whacko?

Okay, let me explain:

#1 At the Sunday Service, the pastor announces that God has changed the name of the church to Ichabod Free Church, and that all meetings are cancelled until God changes the name back.
#2 The building is opened up 24 hrs a day for the entire church to come and pray in repentance, and sort things out, instead of sweeping all nonsense under the carpet.
#3 Because God hears penitient prayer, and his people have humbled themselves, he hears from heaven, and revisits the church, taking his rightful place as HEAD of the church.
#4 Because God has responded before the midweek meeting, no meeting has been lost, and the church can again make progress.
#5 Any church playing the ostrich will lose out and close.

Do you really imagine today's imitations and outright counterfeits or substitutes for what the early believers had in the Book of Acts are means of grace?

Mark 6
6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Having read what Jesus Christ said to the CHURCH of the Laodicean and the other 7 Churches in Revelation IMHO I have to concur with John UK's recommendation.

Michael, what an excellent reply, and I accept it for sure. And I too long for a genuine heaven-sent revival, that will bring churches back to worshipping God in spirit and in truth instead of merely going through the motions week after week. It would also restore lost confidence in the power of the gospel, as they see it have an amazing impact.

Isn't Jesus ever living to make intercession for those (us included) who draw near to God through Him?
What do you think He is praying for in our lives? To just somehow barely hold on until we go to heaven? Or that we would grow in our faith and a bear fruit for His glory and our exceeding joy? That we would have victory over sin? That we would have the filling and empowering of the Spirit in Witness? That we would be fervent and effective in our praying? However you may choose to look at the matter I cannot believe Jesus is praying for our mere survival but that we have victories in our faith to live faithful and joyful and obedient to Him walking in the good works we were made new creatures for. And if Jesus is praying anything like that for us shouldn't we be fervently praying for His will to be done in our lives

Perhaps not a dictionary definition of Revival but IMHO I have to think the intercession of our Great High Priest is very much related to true REVIVAL in and for the lives of those He died to save.

To you who are somehow aloof from and opposed to praying fervently for Revival just what are you praying for? Failures? Disappointmens? Defeats? Embaressement and Shame?

Do you think that maybe there is not enough of the elect around to make this a viable prayer, at the moment?
Briggs
Maybe we should remember the effective fervent prayer of "A" righteous man avails much. Sure it would be wonderful to have the encouragement in praying to be a part of 6 or 7, maybe 12 or even 120 but the example the Holy Spirit gives to us in the Book of James is one single individual (and this is sometimes real hard to take in) with a nature like ours! Wow! What excuse then do we have for our wretched prayerlessness?
