The Essence of Revival

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones speaking on revival said, “Suddenly they are aware of this presence, they’re aware of the majesty and the awe of God. The Holy Spirit literally seems to be preceding over the meeting and taking charge of it, and manifesting His power and guiding and leading them, and directing them. This is the essence of revival.”

The Word Revival

The word ‘revival’ comes from the Latin word ‘revivere’ meaning to live, to return to consciousness, to reawaken or a renewal of fervour, ‘but strictly speaking, it means to bring to life again, to reanimate…’ so wrote G. J. Morgan. The Greek word for revival is anazorpureo, which means to stir up or rekindle a fire which is slowly dying, to keep in full flame. It is used metaphorically when the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, ‘…Stir up the gift of God which is in you…’ (2 Timothy 1:6).

Welsh revivalist, Christmas Evans from the eighteenth century wrote: ‘Revival is God bending down to the dying embers of a fire just about to go out and breathing into it until it bursts once again into flame.’

The word ‘revival’ first came into the English language in 1702; the standard definition being: an awakening in or of evangelical religion. Sometimes the concept of revival is referred to as: a quickening, a spiritual awakening, a visitation, the Holy Spirit descending or a Pentecost etc. From: Understanding Revival by Mathew Backholer, page 9.
