And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15

What does God's Word say about "Revival"
God’s Holy Word, the Bible, describes the word,
“Revival” into two areas, and they are:
CONDITIONS FOR REVIVAL AND
In order for us to address God’s
description of the word Revival, we must
first look at how man has distorted it, and
then we will see it clearly, as shown above.
Man ran out of excuses, and finally in their
meager attempt to define it correctly, they came close with their 5th definition, but the 6th one is
the very best they could do to explain the wayit sometimes happens.
No matter what man says or does,
God’s Word is always the final say in all things. Why? Because without Him
there would be no existence whatsoever;
so, to God be all of the glory and honor as we attempt to show you God’s feelings about this very important word.
The Bible defines Revival as a period of unusual blessing and activity in the life of the Christian church which is caused through His Holy Spirit.
In order for these blessings to come . . .
In order for these blessings to come,
we must realize that it is nothing man can do to bring it about.
Man is not in control – The Lord God Almighty is.
Revival starts in one person,
and when that person has met conditions that the Lord has set for us through His Word, good things always happen.
What are these conditions? They are:
II Chronicles 7:14
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.
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people
may rejoice in thee?
“In the midst of the years revive it; in the
midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.”
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.
For we were bondmen; yet our God hath
not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath
extended mercy unto us in the sight of the
kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to
set up the house of our God, and to repair
the desolations thereof, and to give us a
wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving
the soul; the testimony of the Lord is
sure, making wise the simple.”
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and
renew a right spirit within me.”
“Then we will never abandon you again.
Revive us so we can call on your name
“Repent therefore, and turn back, that
your sins may be blotted out, that times
of refreshing may come from the presence
of the Lord, and that he may send the
Christ appointed for you, Jesus.”
Confess your faults one to another, and
pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man availeth much.
A BROKEN HEART -
Reproach has broken my heart, and I am
full of heaviness. I looked for some to
take pity, but there was none; For
comforters, but I found none.
If I cherished sin in my heart, The Lord
wouldn't have listened.
But what do you think? A man had two
sons, and he came to the first, and said,
'Son, go work today in my vineyard.' 29
He answered, 'I will not,' but afterward he
changed his mind, and went. 30 He came
to the second, and said the same thing.
He answered, 'I go, sir,' but he didn't go.
31 Which of the two did the will of his father?"
They said to him, "The first."
Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly I tell
you that the tax collectors and the
prostitutes are entering into the Kingdom
of God before you. 32 For John came to
you in the way of righteousness, and you
didn't believe him, but the tax collectors
and the prostitutes believed him. When
you saw it, you didn't even repent
afterward, that you might believe him.
TURNING FROM SIN -
1 John 1:6-8
If we say that we have fellowship with
him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do
not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light, we have fellowship
one with another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If
we confess our sins, he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say
that we have not sinned, we make him
a liar, and his word is not in us.
This is one of the most powerful and
personal Scriptures from the Lord God
Almighty Himself, for we, his children, to obey.
Most of the problems of the entire world
stem from total disobedience of this
Scripture from The Great I AM. In order
for Revival to begin, we must dig into
this scripture and see what it is the Lord is saying:
He is telling us personally:"If My people,
"Which are called by My Name," that
means people who call themselves
“Christians,” shall (that means will) do
what? Humble themselves. If we refuse
to obey this command from God or, we
choose to “look the other way” and
disregard this direct order from God to us
– why would we even bother to continue
in this “walk?” It would make no sense.
But for those who choose to obey God
here, He gives us “further instructions,” and they are:
Seek God's face, and
Turn from their (our) wicked ways
Then God says, after we have
here, He gives us “further instructions,” and they are:
done all that, He promises:
Will I hear from heaven, and
Will heal their land
This scripture is a turning point in the
walk of Christians worldwide.
holygosthrevival.org has personally
pleaded with God to allow these ministries
to be saturated with His Holy Spirit,
together with: signs, wonders, miracles,
powers, authority; and with the grace to
bind, loose, and release the captives and
set them free! Revival is primarily for
believers and insiders, but it also affects
outsiders as well. The Lord has
commissioned these Ministries as an
Evangelistic Crusader to launch revival
campaigns to those inside and outside the
church and utilize the gospel of our Lord
Jesus Christ as a vehicle to fulfill these
unique tasks. Also the essence of
these revival campaigns is that Holy Spirit of God
will descend and preside over them in order to:
CONVERT PEOPLE ON THE THE WAY
TO REVIVAL GROUNDS

WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THEIR LIVES
CAUSE PEOPLE TO STOP THE
GROANING AND AGONIZING ABOUT
WHAT IS GOING ON IN THEIR LIVES
MINISTER TO AN EMPTY LIVES
AND REFILL THEM TO THE MAXIMUM BASED ON
THE WORD AND MESSAGE OF GOD
BRING BACK THE LACK OF PRESENCE
OF GOD IN CHURCH MEETINGS AND THE
VARIOUS PROBLEMS OFTEN RELATED WITH REVIVALS
SUPERNATURALLY DRAW YOUR PEOPLE
TO THE MEETING WHO WHERE NOT EVEN THINKING
1. The Presence Of God
2. The Reverence For GOD
3. Acknowledging God
4. The Fear of God
5. The Glory of God
People will know Revival is coming when
the presence of God is already on the
premises, hovering and waiting for God’s
people to attend, because some have
taken the time to pray over the area long
before the revival is due to begin.
During the Revival no provisions such as
water, coffee, food and the like will be
provided because the Holy Spirit is in total
control of the proceedings. Therefore, the personal wants and needs of the people will be temporarily subjected and yielded to the Holy Spirit of the Living God.
(Water would be available under certain circumstances).
A Revival could start at 6PM, and it may
not come to an end until the next morning where people are not concerned about time limitations.
If there is no willingness on our part to
sincerely forsake sin and align ourselves
to true repentance in the first place, how
can there be Revival? It is Impossible and it will not happen.
Jesus’ brother, James, wrote this, under
the auction of the Holy Spirit in James 5:16,
"Confess your faults one to another, that
ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righeous man availeth much." Psalm 66:18 says, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me."
WE NEED TO ASK THE LORD FOR WISDOM WHEN
we obey James 5:16, because Jesus Christ Himself said in Luke 6:46, "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" There are many who call themselves "Christians" and Jesus Christ knew exactly who He was speaking to: then, now, and in the future. Confessing your faults to God is the correct thing to do, and sometimes to one another, and to your pastors. Pastors are representatives of God Himself who the Lord uses to help us. So when we truly confess our faults one to another, and we pray for one another, then, II Chronicles 7:14 becomes our starting point to obey God, and when we do, He does exactly what He promised so “We may be healed!” In other words, when we pray “for real” (fervently), God does the rest! Then our prayers will go a long way with God! In fact, they go right to The Throne of Grace! Praise the Lord. But if we “flip the page” so to speak, will The Lord God Almighty hear me if I have iniquity in my heart? NO.
Revival means: “To come back to life.”
Does that mean that you are dead? A
true Revival comes when you admit that
you are dead and far away from God.
Revival means to examine yourself from
the inside out – it is an awakening
moment in your life when you knew that
something was still lacking and you
couldn’t “put your finger on it.” This is
also called the stirring of His Holy Spirit within you.
Psalm 34:18 says: "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him" The Apostle Paul wrote the same Words another way II Timothy 2:15
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” When you have decided to saturate yourself with God’s Word, you will then realize a deep,personal revelation
of “Tasting and seeing that The Lord is good!” Will you be blessed by God? Absolutely!
A true Revival is when you see cars stop
right in the middle of the street, people
getting out of them, getting on their knees and crying out to the Lord, repenting! Atrue Revival is when people in bars and clubs come running out of them, some lying prostrate on the ground, repenting of their sins before a Holy God!
From the time Jesus began to preach, in
Matthew 4:17, the First Word from His
lips was, Repent: for the kingdom of
heaven is at hand. In reality without a
genuine repentance, there will be no room
for a Holy Spirit-Filled Revival. The
special invitation has been personally
remitted to you today by our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ. What are your
decisions? Would you honor this exclusive you by the Prince of peace?
“Repent and come to this revival today”. If your answer
is yes,you will not regret it because Jesus Christ Himself is already at the revival grounds waiting and anticipating your arrival.
What can hinder Revival? Sin! Pure and
simple! Sin paves the way for separation
The fountain of sin needs to be broken up. Psalm 66:18 reveals that: “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” Men, women, boys, girls, young, old, residents, aliens, together with the incapacitated, are openly encouraged to run from their sin. Sin destroys
relationships between God and men; it also shatters personal relationships with your friends and family members. Sin is a mode of self-centeredness; it is just about you and you only.
Sin becomes a vehicle of enslavement and destruction. Sin ultimately cuts life short of its full course.
Sin prevents people from truly loving others.
If sin is not seriously dealt with, sometimes it overwhelmingly becomes habits, and may eventually lead to addictions. Sin places blockage
between men and God from your petition
being heard. Most especially those sins
that are remotely hidden in the depth of your hearts must be dealt with before a Holy and Righteous God, and then allow the bell of a Holy Spirit-Filled Revival to be rung in your soul today.
COMPLETE SURRENDER: ACT 9:5-6 AND ROMANS 12:1-2
God was using Saul, The “Christian
slaughterer,” as the prime example of
complete surrender: “And he said, Who
art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am
Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard
for thee to kick against the pricks. 6. And
he trembling and astonished said, Lord,
what wilt thou have me to do? And the
Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the
city, and it shall be told thee what thou
must do.” …And God later changed Saul’s
name to Paul… When the Apostle Paul finally relinquished himself to Jesus Christ, he paved the way for the King of glory to convert him to be a suitable fisher of men. A complete surrender navigates the road for Jesus Christ to work in you, and when He does, He will implement Jeremiah 1: 5 which says: “Before
I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations which He has designed for you before the foundation of
The root and the backbone of sin must be
demolished. The root and the backbone of sin are your appetite to commit sin, your lack of discipline to control whatyou envisage with your eyes and most of thetime navigates an itinerary
Romans 12:1-2, I beseech you
therefore, brethren, by the mercies of
God, that ye present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which
is your reasonable service 2. And be not
conformed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of your
mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of
God" These great words of God are
simply an ongoing reminder of II Chrinicles 7:14
after they have been applied in our very lives. It is God who gives us the rules – it is we who choose to obey them or not.
Revival starts in each and every one of us
who are sold out totally to Jesus Christ.
There are many books and songs that
have been written about Revival.
However: all comes to naught unless
and until we are completely:
