Great Quotes on True Revival

 


"Trying to run a church without revivals can be done when you can run a gasoline engine on buttermilk."
- Billy Sunday

"We want a revival to come just in our way. You never saw two revivals come just alike. We must let them come in God's way. People are ashamed to admit they need a revival."
- Mordecai Ham

"Revival brings back a holy shock to apathy and carelessness."
- Winkie Pratney

"I see no hope for a revival among God's people today. They are so enamored and so cluttered up with Hollywood and newspapers and magazines and parties and bowling alleys and camping trips and everything else. How in the world are they going to get still long enough to see anything from God?"
- Lester Roloff

"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and 
it simply will not work."
- A. W. Tozer

"As long as we are content to live without revival, we will."
- Leonard Ravenhill

"Revival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again."
- G. Campbell Morgan

"Revivals begin with God's own people; the Holy Spirit touches their heart anew, and gives them new fervor and compassion, and zeal, new light and life, and when He has thus come to you, He next goes forth to the valley of dry bones... Oh, what responsibility this lays on the Church of God! If you grieve Him away from your-selves, or hinder His visit, then the poor perishing world suffers sorely!"
- Andrew Bonar
 
"28  And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29  And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30  And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call."
- Prophet Joel chapter 2

"1  A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. 
2  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. 
3  God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. 
4  And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. 
5  Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. 
6  He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting."
