Cycle of Revival

Reoccurring Revivals Throughout History
Revival is a reoccurring event that is found throughout the Bible, as well as through Church history.

1. God calls people to partner with Him on a mission for global redemption.

2. His people depart from that commitment and follow self-centered desires.

3. God spends a prophet to warn His people that disaster awaits them if they don’t turn.

4. Almost every time, God’s people reject the warning and the messenger with the warning.

5. God disciplines His people for their benefit.

6. God’s people, in desperation, turn from their self-centeredness and pray for deliverance.

7. God raises a deliverer, judge, prophet, or revivalist.

8. Renewing of relationship with God takes place–a return to normality of partnering with God for global redemption.


The Cycle has Repeated for Thousands of Years

But as soon as they were at rest, they again did what was evil in your sight. Then you abandoned them to the hand of their enemies so that they ruled over them. And when they cried out to you again, you heard from heaven, and in your compassion you delivered them time after time (Nehemiah 9:28).
