Revival is for the Church and Beyond
Revival is the Church being saturated with God – it is primarily intended for the Church so that
they can be revived into a true, proper and correct relationship with God. From this, revival begins
to affect those who are outside of the Church to a lesser or greater degree. Theologically and
historically the river of revival begins amongst the Church (the body of Christ), but will
naturally flow outwards and brings to life those who are dead in their trespasses and sins
(non-Christians) because God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. During times of revival,
Christians always get revived before sinners get converted because that is a spiritual law of revival.
‘If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their
wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land’ (2 Chronicles 7:14).

out My Spirit on your descendants and My blessing on your offspring” (Isaiah 44:3).
‘O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do it for Your name’s sake; for our backslidings are many,
we have sinned against You’ (Jeremiah 14:7).
