Revival: We Will Pray, or We Will Fail!

Revival:  We Will Pray, or We Will Fail!


Psalm 85:6 is a prayer for revival.  It asked God, “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

I firmly believe that America needs a revival.  You need a revival.  I need a revival; Our Churches are in desperate need of a revival.  Most families are in dire need of a revival. We need revival! We must have revival! Revival is no longer an option.  It is something we must have!

 

Questions Each Christian Must Seriously Ask and Answer
 
  • Do you REALLY want to have a revival? 
 
  • Are you willing to pay the price to obtain a Heaven-sent revival?
 
  •  Are you willing to humble yourself, and pray, and seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways? (II Chronicles 7:14).
 
  •  Are you willing to allow the Holy Spirit to perform spiritual surgery upon your proud, and independent heart?  
 
  • Are you willing to submit to the painful process of Biblical repentance of allowing the Holy Spirit to Break up your Fallow ground?   

Hosea 10:12:
“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. “  Fallow ground is ground which at one time was fruitful, and productive.  But over the years a certain hardness has settled into the soil and now the ground is barren and fruitless. This is the true condition of most of our hearts, my fellow Christian.   If we REALLY want to have revival, we must start his process individually before it can sweep across America Nationally.  We can no longer say that America is sinful until we see the exceeding sinfulness of our own person sin that has contributed to the demise of this GREAT Country (Romans 7:13).
Some Are Questioning, Will God Send a Revival to America?
 
The answer is an emphatic ‘YES’.  God can, and will send revival when you and I are willing to pay the price to obtain one. 

There Are Many Reasons Why God Has Withheld Revival From America

 

1.  The reason we’re not having revival may be that we have not been praying for one.  Or, if we are praying for a revival, are we praying with the faith to believe that God ‘Can’ send the revival we so desperately need?  James 4:2 reminds us that “we have not because we ask not.”

 2.   James has taught us that when we pray.” we must ask in faith, nothing wavering…    (James 1:5-8).  1 John 5:14,And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:”  We know that it is God’s will to send revival, so we may ask boldly and confidently, expecting God to grant our desire, (Psalm 37:4). 
 
3.   And yet is still possible to ask, and to even ask in faith, yet not obtain.   James 4:3 makes this very clear, “Ye ask , and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”  This is simply praying with selfish motives.   In revival we need to be concerned about the Glory of God and not so life will be easier for us as believers in America. 
        At this point, I want to ask you, why do you want to have a revival?  What are your real reasons for desiring revival?  What are your motives for seeking revival?
4.     Sin will prevent God from doing that which is obviously His will to do, which in this case, is to send a revival to us.     

God said to Moses, after he had heard the cry of Israel in bondage, Exodus 3:7 And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows.”
Yet years later, speaking this time through the Prophet Isaiah,  but about the same people, God had this to say about their prayers:  “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear,”  Isaiah 59:2.    
We must now take time to do what David did in Psalm 139:23-24 and invite the Holy Spirit to search (ransack)  our hearts and for Him to reveal any and all of the wickedness in our hearts.Here we see the position of God with regards to the prayers of his chosen people Israel, both prayers were made by his people, and it was a cry unto the Lord, but we see God being favorably disposed to one, while to the other one he hid his face.For every prayer that is presented, God, who is the Omnipotent one has the ability, the power and the resources to fulfill them (Philippians 4:19, Jeremiah 32:27). 
But such prayers must first of all get his attention. Even the enemy of our soul knows this simple truth, and this is why his attack on the prayer life and the prayers of believers is either to get them out of their prayer closet through discouragement, or simply to set up road blocks in order to intercept and derail their prayers.So our job is to remove those barriers and clear the way for God to listen to, and then move in response to our prayers.  James 5:15 has reminded the believer that  “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”   We need to have prevailing prayer which is prayer that gets that which is asked of God.
 
In a revival, the hearts of God’s people are broken in repentance and genuine humility, the Lord’s people come together in love and service, and the Lord’s work of ministry, giving, witnessing, and missionary activity moves forward at lightning speed.

Oh may we all pray this prayer so fervently, and yet so sincerely from the depths of our hearts:

Lord, Send a Revival,
Lord, Send a Revival,
Lord, Send a Revival,
And let it begin in me.

We MUST Have Revival in America

jeremiah-weeping

We Must Have Revival in America: When God Judges a Nation

 

 

Jeremiah 9:1 describes what is needed in the Men of God and from the people in the Church, “Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!”

Psalm 85:6 should become the constant cry of each Church in America, “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”

Isaiah 57:15:. revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

Habakkuk 3:2 we hear Habakkuk pouring out his soul unto God when he prays, “O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid : O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known ; in wrath remember mercy.”

There once was a time in which revival was a good thing to have. A time in which having a revival meeting was something the people actually looked forward to. A time in which Christian would gather around the old altar late into the night, and into the early morning hour crying out for a personal and national revival.

I remember some of those days. The crying, the agonizing, the souls panting after God wanting to get a glimpse of the Glory and Majesty of God. America today is unrecognizable to me from those days of yester-year. We live in a nation on the verge of collapse. Oh my soul cries out to God to allow me to do my part in turning over a better world for my Grandchildren to live in.

Our American families have been shattered. Our faith has been compromised where you can enter a church and not even hear the name of Jesus even mentioned except at the close out each prayer. Yes, we MUST have revival in America.

Look at the Condition of our Country, Church, and Christians

 

We are living in days similar to the times of Isaiah the Prophet. He described his nation this way in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

 

  • We have ALLOWED Jesus Christ to be kicked out of American schools for years, with nothing more than a whimper from the Church. We now live in a world where Christians and the Church has ALLOWED Jesus Christ to be removed, while actually allowing and promoting Islam in schools across America.

 

  • We allow Islam to be taught and studied, yet a child cannot even read his Bible during recess time in America without severe repercussions. Why has this happened? Because we have grown cold and complacent in America. In the Pledge of Allegiance to America, God. We must have revival in America!

 

  • Since the Row vs Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973, America has stained the blood of 58 million BABIES! God help us! During the last 30 years, our countries combined have brutally murdered 1,322, 372,570 precious babies. During the first 22 DAYS of January, 2015 America has already butchered 65,000 innocent babies, with 2.2 billion priceless babies already murdered in our world. We MUST have revival in America! We have got to have a National revival. A return to godliness.

 

  • We have ALLOWED, as a result of our spiritual weakness, and because we have lacked the courage, and spiritual back-bone to take a strong, uncompromising stand for Jesus Christ (Ephesians 6:11, 13).

 

  • Our average American Church is lukewarm at best, hearing the preaching without the Word of God making any deep, abiding spiritual impact upon our lives. We have preachers that REFUSE to obey the admonition of Isaiah, in Isaiah 58:1 when he said rather strongly, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

 

  • Where do you go in America to hear a preacher passionately pouring out his heart against sin while promoting the holiness of Jesus Christ? The average pulpit has been stripped of its spiritual power when it quit preaching against Biblical sin! This is why we MUST have Revival in America. America will never experience revival until the preacher starts lifting up his voice to bring people back to God.

 

Last year while reading through the Books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, I was reminded of a man that likewise was very concerned about the spiritual condition of his country as some of us are this morning.

His name was Jeremiah. He was a true Man of God. Let me give you some background into the days in which Jeremiah lived and see if you can see America, or your country in the Biblical account of the nation of Judah.

Around 975 B.C., the nation of Israel had divided. Jeroboam I led the 10 northern tribes to become insurgent against King Rehoboam, the son of Solomon. The Northern Kingdom came to be known as Israel. Its capital was eventually located in Samaria. All of the kings who ruled over the Northern Kingdom were wicked, godless men. Israel was conquered by Assyria in 721 B.C. Nearly all of the people were taken into Assyrian captivity.

The Southern Kingdom was known as Judah. Judah was made up of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Their capitol city was Jerusalem, where the temple was located. Although most of its rulers were wicked, they did have a few that were faithful to God. However, Judah became a godless nation. Because of this, God allowed Babylon to conquer it in 606 B.C. Some of the leading citizens, including Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, were taken to Babylon at this time. When Judah rebelled against Babylon in 596 B.C. others, including Ezekiel, were taken as captives to Babylon. Finally, in 586 B.C. , in what was a preview of what I believe could very well happen to our blessed country of America, the army of Babylon destroyed the city of Jerusalem. Solomon’s temple was torn down. Most of the remaining people were carried away into Babylon. During Judah’s last days, Jeremiah served as God’s spokesman to them.

Jeremiah, like many in America, was born during a troubled time in his country’s history. As we face in our world of the 21st century, great nations were struggling for control of the world. Does this sound familiar with the modern day terrorists trying to seize control of the world, infiltrating one country at a time?

The powerful Assyrian Empire was slowly dying, as is some of the truly great countries in our lifetimes. Babylon became a superpower once its army defeated and conquered Nineveh. Nineveh was capital of Assyria Empire, in 612 B.C.

Egypt had been a world power for more than one thousand years. It was striving to maintain its power against threats from Babylon. The little nation of Judah was located directly between these two global giants or superpowers. When the armies from the Babylonian Empire marched to fight the armies from the Egyptian Empire in the Nile Valley, they had to go through Judah. Many times, battles were fought on Judah’s territory. Its people suffered greatly as a result. Kings of Judah were tempted to make alliances with either Babylon or Egypt as protection against the other one. Jeremiah and the other prophets warned them to trust in God instead of these alliances.

Spiritually, the people of Judah had sunk very low. After the death of Hezekiah, a good king, his wicked son, Manasseh, came to the throne (2 Kings 21:1-9). Manasseh was followed by his son, Amon, who was also wicked (2 Kings 21:19-22). When Amon was killed by his own servants, his eight year old son, Josiah, was placed on the throne (2 Kings 21:23-26). Josiah was the last of the good kings of Judah. He led the people back to God and His Law (2 Kings 22, 23). Sadly, his godly rule was cut short when he was killed in battle at the age of 39 (2 Kings 23:29). It was during these times that God called Jeremiah to prophesy during the rule of Josiah (Jeremiah 1:1-10).

Jeremiah saw what was about to happen to his country of Judah. He knew that unless the people got serious about revival that their beloved city and temple would be destroyed. Further, he knew that many men, husbands and fathers would be killed in the fierce battle. He likewise could see the women and children being carried away as slaves to the wicked Babylonians.

I can visualize the agony on the faces of the Men as they were now fighting a losing battle. Their opportunity to repent and experience a genuine revival had passed. Judgment was now in the form the battlefield where these valiant men were losing.

Judgment could be heard by the weeping and wailing of the women and children as they were being carried away from their homeland forever. The pain on the faces of the surviving men from the battle as they were now bound and absolutely helpless to prevent their women and children from going into a hostile land.

You read of Jeremiah boldly preaching to the nation of Judah to repent and return to God. As with some of you reading or listening to this message, they just do not believe that God would really bring Judah down by using a heathen nation to chasten them. Guess what, neither do you or MOST of America.

We just cannot envision God using terrorists people and countries banding together all over the modern world to bring America. Yet God is allowing this to happen, right before our very eyes. Every night on the news we read or watch of more Christians beheaded; small children and women buried alive at the hand the enemy of Jesus Christ. I believe God is allowing this to happen to create the type of persecution that will drive Christians back to Jesus Christ.

Jeremiah warned his country with tears, to flee to God. They just refused to listen. The agony upon his heart was excruciating. All through the book of Jeremiah, we see the Man of God warning, begging, and pleading for the nation to return to God. They just would not listen!

Once you begin reading the second book which Jeremiah was used of God to write, called the Book of lamentations, the judgment had fallen. Some have described Lamentations as “a funeral chant for Jerusalem. Lamentations is often called “The Tears of Jeremiah.” Each of the five chapters of Lamentations is a poem. It shows clearly that God will punish even His own people if they do not repent of their sins.

Watch the Man of God, with his heart shattered at what he was watching, the captivity had begun. It was now too late to avert the judgment of God.

America, we are very close to destruction. I just lost some of our more liberal Christians. You simply do not want to hear the truth. Therefore you are not willing to help bring America back to God. We are living during days in which the America I experienced for 60 years of my life, is coming to a close.

We have become like the frogs on the stove. If you place a number of frogs in a pan of lukewarm water, and then place that pan of living frogs on a stove, then turn up the heat all at once, and they will all jump out to save themselves. But place those same frogs in a lukewarm pan of water, and SLOWLY turn up the heat, the frogs will become immune to the slow temperature change and remain in the pan of water until they slowly boil to death.

The time has NOW come! America, Don’t Wait, until It is Too Late!

Our time IS Short (I Corinthians 7:29), so we MUST pray, we must repent, and we must GET INVOLVED (Nehemiah 1:11). Christians, we MUST have a Revival in America!

What are YOU Doing to help Save America? What are you REALLY DOING to make a difference? Will you begin by returning to God? Will you confess your sins as David had in Psalm 51:10? Will you confess your sins and receive the cleansing needed in your life as promised by God in I John 1:9?

Jesus Christ is Our ONLY hope. The early Church turned the world upside down for Jesus Christ. We can to! We MUST do all that we can, while we can!

EVERY American will soon say, “I WISH that I would have, or each will say, Thank God that I did!” It is Your Country, so it is your choice. We are living at the midnight hour. Judah let the clock pass midnight and it brought years of devastation. Will American Christians learn from Judah’s mistake? Will we return to God?

Will you contact me by replying to this message letting me know that God has spoken to your heart about revival and returning to God?   Humility is the first step to revival , (II Chronicles 7:14).

We MUST Have Revival In America!

What America Desperately Needs: Prayer and Revival

wpid-wpid-chronicles71.gif

What America Desperately Needs: Prayer and Revival II Chron. 7:14

Jim Kilgore, Missionary Evangelist

We have become a prayer less generation! Many Christians do not know what it is like to pray for even 1 hour at a time. We say that we believe in prayer, but spend so little time on our knees begging God to save America and your Country! We say we believe that God answers prayer, yet are literally SHOCKED whenever WE receive a specific answer. Why? Because many Christians have become Atheistic Believers. We BELIEVE that God can, yet DOUBT that He will move in response to our prayers.

Great Men of God Believed in Praying

• Dr. Jowett said, “I’d rather teach ONE man how to pray than to teach TEN men how to preach.”

• Baxter said, “Men may spurn our appeals; reject our message; oppose our arguments; but they are HELPLESS against our prayers.”

• Judson said, “The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from our prayer less studies; from our prayer less witnessing; from our prayer less work; YET he trembles when we pray!

• John Wesley said, “Sir, I’m too busy NOT to pray.”

• Martin Luther said, “I am so busy that I must spend the first three hours in prayer.”

• James 5:16 says: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

The Secret of ALL Failure is Prayerlessness

We Christians put on such a show; lives filled with mere pretense. I am weary of mere talk. We can talk a great game. Christians, America NEEDS us to pray! Revival WILL NOT come apart from the prayers of the Righteous Believer. We MUST Have Revival in America!!

America, Please Don’t Wait until it’s too Late!

In Luke chapter 16 we read of a poor soul that entered into the School of Prayer immediately upon his arrival in hell! He asked for relief from his pain. But it was too late! He begged Abraham for just one drop of water to cool his tongue for he is tormented by the flames of hell. But it was too late! He earnestly pleaded that someone warn his brothers about hell. But it was too late! He was turned down! I believe that prayerlessness on earth will go unanswered in hell.

In the Book of Genesis God used one righteous man that Walked with Him to Warn the World of the judgment He was about to send to a godless, God rejecting society. Noah faithfully preached the message of God, yet not even one person would receive the message from God’s man. No, not even one! The entire world could be saved from the flood! Yet they waited one day too late. The rain fell and eventually the flood waters covered the face of the earth and every man, woman and child died. It was so needless. If only they would have believed and received the message of God.

In the Book of Jeremiah, Jeremiah warned the nation about the judgment of God that was about to fall upon them. They, like America, chose to ignore the Call from the Man of God. Yet in the Book of Lamentations, we see the people of God being carried into captivity because of their sins. Hear the cries, the screams, feel their pain as they are now experiencing the fruit of the sin. Feel their pain; experience their loss; above all, learn from their apathy and casual approach to God.

Look around you Christian. Don’t say that it cannot happen to America! We must, we must, we must, we MUST have revival in America! This revival can start with you!

Will you join me as I am trying to call America back to God?

In the book of Jonah an entire city fell to its knees repenting of their sin and God heard their cry and saved each one! This was a city steeped in their sin. This was a city in the Prophet Jonah was hoping would continue in their calloused ways. Yet they repented and experienced the forgiveness of sins.

This can happen to your Church, to your City, to your Country, to your Continent.

My prayer, burning from the depth of my heart and soul has been, “God save America! When I surrendered to preach 39 years ago, I only asked two things from God than, and I pray them daily now. First, God help me to Win many souls to Jesus Christ. Second, help me to be used of you to Wake up America and save our Nation! I have six Children and 15 Grandchildren at the preaching of this message. I do NOT want to see them experience what the Children of Israel experienced.

• Again, will you join me by Repenting of your sin, as I have done?
• Will you Return unto God as I have done?
• Will you beg God for Revival each day for our nation?
• Will you Rededicate your LIFE unto becoming a Difference-Maker for Jesus Christ and America?

An International Challenge: Going Global with the Gospel

image

I want to challenge 650 Christians, from at least 25 Countries, to pass out 5 tracts each day during the month of July.    I look forward to hearing that Representatives from across America and the World, are signing up for this soul-winning endeavor.  Will you commit to getting the Gospel of Jesus Christ out to your City, State, and Country?

This is a deep passion and burden which Our Father has spoken clearly and decisively about to me.  Romans 10:1:  “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.”

I am extremely confident the spiritual results will be staggering.  This would mean a minimum of 100,750 lost souls receiving the Gospel in their very hands – and in only 31 days! 

Do we believe the time is short?  Do we believe that Jesus could come at ANY moment?   If so, this is our opportunity to join a focused effort with Believers all over the World in handing God’s plan of Salvation to those who are one breath away from hell!

Daily, I remind myself that I am living in the final years of my life.  What I need to do for Jesus Christ, I MUST do NOW!   Will you join me?

Just think, Christians from different countries, speaking different languages, teaming up in an earnest effort to distribute the Gospel.  We WILL see the hand of God upon this missionary enterprise.  Souls WILL be saved!   This is your opportunity do something which is far greater than yourself!

I would love to publish a brief testimony of your soul-winning experiences for the purpose of Glorifying Jesus, (Matthew 5:16) and to encourage those who are new at witnessing.

Please email me to sign up today.  I will NOT share your social information with anyone.

The information I will need in your email is: 

1)   Name

2)   Email Address

3)   City,  State,   Country

Matthew 28:18-20.   Will you sign up now? Will you pray DAILY for this soul winning effort today?

* I will in turn email you a simple, easy to use “Tract Tracking” spreadsheet.

What Difference Does a Day Make?

image

What difference does a day make?  None you might think.  Britain’s King George III obviously felt this way as he wrote the day’s activities in his diary: “July 4, 1776–Nothing happened today.”

Nothing happened?   Really?  Are you kidding me?  That day  my country  was born.   America’s birth marked an epoch in history for the cause of human freedom.  Yet King George despised the day of small beginnings. He failed to realize the importance of that day.  He obviously viewed it as insignificant.  Perhaps he thought,  as a trend which would, as a vapor, soon  vanish away.

We have no idea what seeds of greatness the African prayer chain, which currently stands at exactly 250 godly Pastors and their  praying  will do for “ALL” of Africa. 

After visiting Africa and witnessing the mighty hand of God in saving 152 souls in such a short period of time, through preaching and street soul-winning, Mufokase now  has many people going out evangelizing and soul winning.  Please, do not despise the days of small beginnings!   God  IS  at work in Africa. I have been communicating with Pastors all over Africa and learning of their intense desire and earnest prayer for revival.  Yes God is starting a movement in Africa which can only be quenched by our sin, unbelief, and casual approach to Christianity.

Don’t underestimate the power of one or two godly men and women begging Heaven for a spiritual movement which can change the course of a Nation! 

II Chronicles 7:14 says: “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 forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

As we look into God’s Promise for Revival,  let us take notice of the times in which this Revival promise was written.

The book begins with Solomon’s plans to build the temple in Jerusalem and ends with its destruction. Between the dedication and destruction of Solomon’s temple is about 384 years.

King Solomon heard these words at the dedication of the temple. He is told by God that disobedience and rebellion will result in judgment upon the nation of Israel. This verse is God’s promise that those who turn from their sins; call on Him and walk in His ways will experience a revival of the presence and blessing of the Lord.   Now, this is a verse to Israel, but it speaks to every generation as well. Those who meet the conditions detailed in this verse will experience the promises mentioned in this verse.

Dear Pastor, dear Christian, we need revival!  We need Revival!  We MUST HAVE A Revival!   It is not even an option anymore.  It has to happen!

We Believers love our meetings; but we need more than a meeting, we need a revival.    We need something that we cannot produce by our ownefforts. Revival is a supernatural event. It comes only by the sovereign decree of the Lord.

We can have a “meeting” where we show up and sing beautiful songs;  we can have a “meeting” where the Evangelist shows up;  we can have a “meeting” where visitors show up.  However,  what every  Country, Continent, and Church needs is for God to show up and meet with His Church!!         All is in vain until the Holy One of God descends down to meet with the Believer.  When God shows up, then things begin to happen!  Souls will be saved;  sins in the Church will be confessed and forsaken; the believer will see God in His glory!

No,  we cannot have a revival unless the Lord gives it! We can only meet the requirements set forth in the above verse, and that will make revival much more likely.

During the next few days, please get alone with God and  express your desire to have God show up in your life, your Church, your Country, and yes—Your Continent!!  Remind God of your intense desire to Pay whatever Price is necessary to change the course of a Continent for His glory.

The Psalmist, in Psalm 85:6 prayed to His Father, “wilt thou not revive USagain: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”

Please feel free to contact me at: JimKilgoreMinistries@gmail.com if you wish prayer for revival or to make certain you are going to Heaven when you die.

We CAN have a Revival in ANY Country!

image

I had recently written an article entitled, “We MUST have a Revival in America.”  However, my personal concern is for the  “WORLD” to be evangelized and  for Christians to experience the type of revival which has the power to shake the world for Jesus Christ! Therefore, I feel a deep need to teach my audience more of this subject.
 I  returned last evening from 10 days of evangelizing and preaching in Zimbabwe, Africa in which both myself, and the dear Zimbabwe people saw a definite movement by the Holy Spirit. Together,  we saw between 142 – 152 souls come to Christ in this 10 day period. 
A dear, godly Pastor, Bernard Tapiwa Katiyo asked me to lead his congregation out to train his Church HOW to evangelize immediately after the message I preached on Nehemiah 1:1-11. I have been invited to preach in southern India as the pastor said, “India NEEDS the gospel.  You MUST come, he urged. ” 
It is my personal belief that revival can come, one Person at a time, one Church at at at time, one Country at a time.  Revival is NOT limited to one country, but is available for “every” country in this world.  Our vision must be enlarged!  Our concern must be become global!  People need Christ everywhere and Christians in every country need to experience a revival.It is by revival that God truly blesses a nation.  It is through revival that Christians become moved to evangelize those without Jesus Christ.  It is through revival that the Fire of God God falls upon, and then transforms Christians and Churches.  Over 150 people walked the aisle after the Sunday evening service committing to evangelize Zimbabwe! Let me briefly share a few reasons why our world needs a revival. First, why does our World need a revival?We must have a revival which will stop the floodgates of rebellion against God.We must have a revival which will restore the moral purity back into our once glorious nation.We must have a revival which will put an end to the mere lip service many have offered to God.We must have a revival which will cause God’s men to preach His Word without compromise, and without fear of offending people!We must have a revival which will cause God’s people to have a deep sense of urgency in reaching those who are unsaved.We must have a revival which will leadChristians to love the Lord with ALL their hearts.Yes, we MUST have a revival in our World!Second, let us take notice of what a Revival is NOT!It is not mere emotion. Just because some tears are shed, does not constitute a genuine revival. Though tears will invariably be present.It is not an evangelistic Crusade, though again, revival will lead Christians to show a deep concern for the Lost, which will lead to increased witnessing for and sinners coming to Jesus Christ.Third, what then is a genuine revival?It is an awakening in our hearts that leads to an increased awareness of the nearness of God.We will realize that God is ever present with us and our thoughts become filled with Him.This of course, leads us to love Him in a deeper, richer way, perhaps more than ever before.At this point, will you not pray a similar prayer to this daily, and throughout the day, with deep passion and urgency?“Revive me again dear Lord.”  Revival in my country must start in my heart. Send to me, send to my family, send to my Church, and to my beloved Country, the revival which will cause You and Your glory to fill our heart and Church. I am aware that revival will shake things up; challenge the status quo; bring discomfort to our often cold and calloused hearts. Dear God, I want revival!  I needrevival!  I greatly desire and earnestly yearn for revival! I must have a revival!”Revival can, and in fact often starts with one or two people, somewhere in the world which begins to prays daily for God to start a spiritual movement in their part of the world.  The famous Welch revival was prayed fordaily for  13 years by a young man, who, at the age of 26, began his prayer for revival.  Thirteen years later his country expericed what has often been called, the greatest national revival this world has seen!   Places which sold alchol were closed down due to a lack of interest; souls came to Christ by the thousands!  Lives were TRANSFORMED by the Gospel of Jesus Christ!Is this what you desire?  Is this what you WILL commit to?If so, please contact me at: JimKilgoreMinistries @gmail.com   so I may specifically pray for your part of the World.   I have a world map in my home office in which I am praying for souls to be saved and for specific Nations to experience a real, Biblical revival which will change entire Countries!II Chronicles 7:14 makes this promise of revival available to each country:  “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.“Psalm 85:6 expresses my heart’s desire for revival perfectly:  “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?  These promises are for EVEVY Country to claim IF that Person, Church, or Nation is willing to meet God’s requirements for revival.
