Revival Without Reformation

https://youtu.be/xYADuHQ6dgI

 

(Proverbs 1:8) My son, listen to your father’s instruction, and do not let go of your mother’s teaching.

(2 Chronicles 7:14) when my people humble themselves—the ones who are called by my name—and pray, seek me, and turn away from their evil practices, I myself will listen from heaven, I will pardon their sins, and I will restore their land.

 

What do you understand by the word “reformation”? It is often used to change from the old to make something new. Reform a house, reform an office, reform an outside sitting area..etc. However, Biblical reformation is not necessarily doing something new, but rather, going back to the roots, traditions, and foundations upon which the Church was built.

The modern church we see is full of political committees, flashy lights, promotions, loud music, and preachers who instead of preaching, entertain, and share stories to make you emotional. We seem to need to have snacks and post-meeting activities in order for members to have fellowship. Only when there is a guest speaker will we allow the sermon to go over 30 minutes….. Shall I go on?

We need a reformation of the modern church in order to bring the revival we are waiting for. That is, to go back to preaching about repentance, about the kingdom of heaven the way Christ taught it in over a dozen parables, to go to each other’s homes sharing what we have, and continue to fellowship. To go to the streets and invite people to the knowledge of Christ, allowing the Holy Spirit to use us for signs and wonders.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of hearing the elderly people talk about times when the power of the Holy Spirit was so strong that every meeting was full of souls answering altar calls, full of prophecies, and testimonies of God’s supernatural power. I want to witness it, and not just for it to be something that was for back then when we truly feared God. I want it now, for my generation!

Then and only then, will we be able to experience the healing of the Land as promised in the Bible. In the book of 2 Chronicles, we have a basic layout of how revival can take place.

1.) The people of God (not the world) have to seek God’s face by praying and being in His presence.

2.) They have to repent of their current, modern ways and see what they have compromised with the world in order to bring more members to their churches or be accepted by society.

3.) Finally, they have to accept God’s forgiveness and instruction and then start to enjoy all the blessings and healing He will bring about.

 

 

What is the point of revival if in a few days we will go back to our modern ways and reject the reformation God wants to do? That would be like attending another church camp where we get on fire for a week and then end up colder than we started.
