My question was, “What is Revival?” and “Why do we need it?” So, I thought the best place to start was with a definition. I simply did what you probably would do – I performed a search on Google. One of the “hits” took me to Wikipedia. Here is the top definition of “Revival” – “revival…may refer to the resuscitation of a person.” So, I clicked the link….
“From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“CPR” redirects here.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure which is performed in an effort to return life to a person in cardiac arrest. It is indicated in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or only gasps…CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart; its main purpose is to restore partial flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart. It may delay tissue death and extend the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage…CPR is generally continued until the person regains return of spontaneous circulation or is declared dead.”
Well there you have it! The Church in America is in trouble today!! She seems unresponsive, gasping for breath! (If you don’t believe that, just look around!!) If drastic measures are not taken IMMEDIATELY, brain damage and/or death will occur!
Why do we need revival? There is a lost and dying world – right outside the doors of our church. Without a strong and vibrant – HEALTHY – Church, what will happen to them?? LORD, SEND A REVIVAL….AND LET IT START IN ME!!
