Quotes on Revival

Updated: Nov 5, 2019

We cannot organize revival, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan

A revival is not a special service or a crusade or an evangelistic campaign. A revival is a refreshing from God, a reviving of existing spiritual life, a fire from Heaven, a moving of God’s Holy Ghost in and upon the lives of born again people.
 Tom Malone

A true revival means nothing less than a revolution, casting out the spirit of worldliness and selfishness, and making God and His love triumph in the heart and life. Andrew Murray

When Holy God draws near in true revival, people come under terrible conviction of sin. The outstanding feature of spiritual awakening has been the profound consciousness of the presence and holiness of God. Henry Blackaby

During true revival, thousands of lost people are suddenly swept into the Kingdom of God. Scenes of the lost coming to the Savior in great, and unprecedented numbers, are common. Henry Blackaby

Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restores a deep sense of God’s near presence and holiness. Thence springs a vivid sense of sin and a profound exercise of heart in repentance, praise, and love, with an evangelistic outflow. J.I Packer

There are no magic formulas for revival. We cannot command it. We may await it with longing, and we are bound to express our longing in prayer. Tom Wells

All revival begins, and continues in the prayer meeting… Henry Blackaby

Recounting the great acts of God in past revivals serves to stir the hearts of today’s believers with hope toward such an awakening in our day. The act of remembering is not merely indicating an interest in spiritual history. It is a method, and a biblical one at that, by which we can create a longing within the church for a fresh encounter with the living God. Remembering past revivals can create opportunities for the hope for revival to enter into the awareness of the body of Christ. David Butts

In an era when it is popular to focus on “quick fixes”, we need to ask God for the stamina to keep laboring with all our might for personal revival in that one individual, that one family, that one church, and that one community with whom we most regularly associate.” Bryon Paulus

Revival is always born in prevailing prayer. This is the one basic unalterable, central principle of awakening. Henry Drummond

God hath had it much on His heart from all eternity to glorify His dear and only begotten Son; and there are some special seasons that He appoints to that end, wherein He comes forth with omnipotent power to fulfill His promise, and these times are times of remarkable pouring out of His Spirit to advance His kingdom. Such a day is a day of power.” Jonathan Edwards

The reason why congregations have been so dead is because dead men preach to them. George Whitfield

In times of evangelism, evangelists seek sinners. But in times of revival, sinners seek the Lord. Bill Mcleod
