*** Before I share a study from more than 40 years ago about revival, I want to address some of the ‘revivals’ that are going on in our country right now (2018).
Many modern revivals are focused on evangelism. That’s similar to what I remember as a child in church in the 1950’s and as a young Christian in the 1970’s. The emphasis was and still is on salvation.
Some of today’s revivals are focused on church membership – getting people back in church after a time away from attending services.
Other ‘revivals’ are focused on politics, making changes in government and getting voters to the polls. I read about one “progressive Christian” group that is focused on “flipping” Congress in November’s elections. I say “progressive Christian” because of the identity of the leaders. [More information about these leaders is available here and here.] The group is holding rallies across the country for the express purpose of voting one particular political party out of power.
“Let’s get Biblical instead of Republican this voting cycle and vote for the common good that will be a direct result of flipping Congress!” Vote Common Good
What does it mean to “get Biblical” when talking about revival? Here is the outline from a radio program script from the mid-1970’s. Let’s see how it approaches the question about “Biblical” revival. ***
Teaching Notes are Bible studies we taught before GraceLife Ministries began publishing articles online in 1995. Some were presented as sermons, others as group studies.
Our hope is that these older studies will be a blessing to you in your life and ministry. Please use them in any way God leads you.
These teaching notes are from a study about Revival.
