Psalm 22:27

King James Version

27 All the ends of the world shall remember 

and turn unto the Lord: 

and all the kindreds of the nations 

shall worship before thee.

What does it take to revive a church?

JESUS, of course.

Who speaks only of GOD.

Who brings us back to GOD.

Who gives us eternal life.

With SPIRIT reminding us everything JESUS taught.

So far, this is third* in a series of articles on revival of our churches, and spirits.

All because SPIRIT led me to a Leonard Ravenhill video on preachers.

From which, two other articles were born.

This, being the third.

In that video, Ravenhill says much about revival:

Oh God, 

don't let this generation pass, 

without seeing your glory.

There isn't a revivalist in America today; 

not one.

When revival comes, 

the total environment is changed.


is an integral part of revival.

No life

We've go the letter but no life.

We've got the words but no Spirit.

We've got the terms but no reproduction.

the word of God is alive

And now, Scripture tells us about revival.

How our sagging spirits, and churches, can be revived.

Through the TRIUNE GOD:

2 Chronicles 7:14

King James Version

14 If my people, 

which are called by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn from their wicked ways; 

then will I hear from heaven, 

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.

Psalm 19:7

King James Version

7 The law of the Lord is perfect,

converting the soul: 

the testimony of the Lord is sure, 

making wise the simple.

Psalm 36:8-9

King James Version

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied 

with the fatness of thy house; 

and thou shalt make them drink 

of the river of thy pleasures.

9 For with thee is the fountain of life: 

in thy light shall we see light.

Psalm 42:1-2

King James Version

42 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, 

so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

2 My soul thirsteth for God, 

for the living God: 

when shall I come and appear before God?

Psalm 51:1-3

King James Version

51 Have mercy upon me, O God, 

according to thy lovingkindness: 

according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies 

blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, 

and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: 

and my sin is ever before me.

Psalm 51:10-12

King James Version

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; 

and renew a right spirit within me.

and uphold me with thy free spirit.

King James Version

15 For thus saith the high and lofty One 

that inhabiteth eternity, 

whose name is Holy; 

I dwell in the high and holy place, 

with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, 

to revive the spirit of the humble, 

and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Isaiah 64:1-3

King James Version

64 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, 

that thou wouldest come down, 

that the mountains might flow down 

at thy presence,

2 As when the melting fire burneth, 

the fire causeth the waters to boil, 

to make thy name known to thine adversaries, 

that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

3 When thou didst terrible things 

which we looked not for, 

thou camest down, 

the mountains flowed down 

at thy presence.

Jeremiah 17:13

King James Version

13 O Lord, 

the hope of Israel, 

all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, 

and they that depart from me 

shall be written in the earth, 

because they have forsaken the Lord, 

the fountain of living waters.

which was full of bones,

Ezekiel 37:4-6

King James Version

4 Again he said unto me, 

Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, 

O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; 


I will cause breath to enter into you, 

and ye shall live:

6 And I will lay sinews upon you, 

and will bring up flesh upon you, 

and cover you with skin, 

and put breath in you, 

and ye shall live; 

and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

Prophesy unto the wind, 

prophesy, son of man, 

and say to the wind, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Come from the four winds, 

O breath, 

and breathe upon these slain, 

that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, 

and the breath came into them, 

and they lived, 

and stood up upon their feet, 

an exceeding great army.

Ezekiel 37:11-14

King James Version

11 Then he said unto me, 

Son of man, 

these bones are the whole house of Israel: 

behold, they say, 

Our bones are dried, 

and our hope is lost: 

we are cut off for our parts.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Behold, O my people, 

I will open your graves, 

and cause you to come up out of your graves, 

and bring you into the land of Israel.

13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, 

when I have opened your graves, 

O my people, 

and brought you up out of your graves,

14 And shall put my spirit in you, 

and ye shall live, 

and I shall place you in your own land:

 then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, 

and performed it, 

saith the Lord.

O Lord, 

revive thy work in the midst of the years, 

in the midst of the years make known; 

in wrath remember mercy.

Matthew 6:30

if God so clothe the grass of the field, 

which to day is, 

and to morrow is cast into the oven, 

shall he not much more clothe you, 

O ye of little faith?

Matthew 6:31-34

King James Version

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, 

What shall we eat? 

or, What shall we drink?

or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) 

for your heavenly Father knoweth 

that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: 

for the morrow shall take thought 

for the things of itself. 

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven 

as of a rushing mighty wind, 

and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them 

cloven tongues like as of fire, 

and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, 

and began to speak with other tongues, 

as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 3:19-21

and be converted, 

that your sins may be blotted out,

from the presence of the Lord.

until the times of restitution of all things, 

which God hath spoken 

by the mouth of all his holy prophets 

since the world began.

and he will draw nigh to you. 

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; 

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: 

let your laughter be turned to mourning, 

and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, 

and he shall lift you up.

let him take the water of life freely.

The revived church is the humble church.

A humbled, and repentant church.

Realizing, only through JESUS can we accomplish anything worthy.

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.
