“When we talk about revival, we don’t want revival for the sake of revival. We want revival because when it comes here it drives us into intimacy with the father. Revival is to make Jesus’s name famous. ” — Pastor Renee Evans
Listen to Pastor Renee Evans, senior leader of Bethel Austin, as she discusses the second part of her series on Revival History. Giving us an exciting new insight on what we can learn from the recent revivalists of the 20th Century.
How many of us can predict when a great move of God is coming? Are there any indicators for this? Every great move of God came after a time in history that was filled with conflict, strife and hopelessness. Where the world was turned upside down from the great depression to plagues. The struggle we have on the earth today, is recognizing what the Holy Spirit is saying in these uncertain times.
Our repositioning is key to being a revivalist, learning how to lay it all down at the foot of the cross. We want revival not to be about a charismatic movement to make our church known, it’s about the name of Jesus being known. God is not looking for silver or gold vessels to fill, he is looking for yielded vessels refined by him.
Who will be the future revivalist? The decision to be a world changing apostle should be in all of us, shaping cultures in the community around us. Where we actually have an impact on our sphere of influence and sphere of authority.
