The Real Keys to Revival
I. INTRODUCTION - THE CONSTANT NEED FOR REVIVAL
A. General Quotes on Revival
Billy Sunday - They tell me a revival is temporary; so is a bath, but it does you good.
Vance Havner - When I was a boy, preachers used to talk about "olding a revival." What we really need is somebody who will turn a revival loose.
-Throughout the Bible there have been records of revival that took place:
- Under King Jehoash - 2 Kings 11-12
- Under King Hezekiah - 2 Kings 18
- Under King Asa - 2 Chronicles 15
- In the time of Zerubbabel - Ezra 5-6
- In the time of Nehemiah - Nehemiah 8-9, 13
- At Pentecost - Acts 2-3
- At Samaria - Acts 8
- In Cornelius's household - Acts 10
- In Ephesus - Acts 19
-There are more than these that took place as well.
-I would suppose that any preacher who is worth his salt has a great desire for a revival to take place in his own personal life and in the church that he may be called to pastor.
