REVIVAL ...What does it mean?
When something or someone is revived they come back to life or receive a fresh inspiration, vision, purpose, or revelation They find what they had lost & are conscious of what really matters . We as society are desperate for a moral revival, a revival of love, care & humility. A revival that brings an understanding, a revelation, a deep conviction of the state this world & society is in. Oh sure some like to brag... “I’m living life to it’s fullest & we have never been so well off.” Yet truthfully most who brag such are selfish & proud, & although maybe set financially in this world,  spiritually they are wretched, blind & poor. On the outside many people seem to “have it all together”, but within they are lonely, fearful, guilty & sad! Why is this?....I believe it is because we have stopped honouring the very giver of life, the creator of life itself, our father who is in heaven & His son Jesus Christ. We have offended His Holy Spirit & to our own detriment have wondered of & are like sheep without a shepherd, or like the prodical son that thinks he knows it all, & better than his father, so goes into the world to “have a goodtime & live it up”. Yet when he lost it all it brought him to his senses to understand that all was just plastic, pretence & shallow. Do we really need calamity & heartache in our lives to wake us up & bring us back to basics...back to God? I’m not talking about religion here, but rather a real, powerful encounter on a personal level with God almighty. He is a God who dearly loves us & desires to gather us in His arms & pour out all His indescribable love & peace into our lives. We deceive yourself thinking we can find it elsewhere. God has made clear in His word that broad is the road that leads to destruction & many follow it, but straight & narrow is the road that leads to eternal life & few find it... Even though it is offered to all as a free loving gift! We need a revival a mighty awakening & outpouring of Gods love, healing & power. A revelation of the scriptures & a turning away from ungodliness & an embracing of right living, love & obedience  to one who knows best for us & wants what is best for us....God himself!      

HE still forgives & heals today!
He is a God that forgives all our sins & heals all our diseases...Bless the Lord & forget not His benefits. Psalm 103:2+3
God sent Jesus for one purpose....That is to benefit mankind. That’s you & me. To restore a broken relationship with our heavenly father.  All God has for us is good! How do we not understand that He is our only hope. He is our only source of life, health, healing, freedom, deliverance, salvation, joy & peace. He came to set captives free. Those who are oppressed & sick can find freedom, release & healing In Jesus Christ, God’s only son. There is no other name given to us under heaven by which we can be saved from the consequences of our sins & be healed from all the hurt, pain & sicknesses this world throws upon us. You see, He has overcome the world. He has paid the costly price
for your forgiveness, salvation & healing. All we need do now is accept His love, healing & forgiveness, make a calculated decision to forsake (repent)our sin & selfishness & turn to God to receive from Him all His benefits. It’s time to turn to God. To turn to Him with all our hearts & forsake ungodliness. To acknowledge Him in all our ways to make level paths for our feet & walk in His ways & so He will direct our paths into His everlasting love. We must choose to follow Him & obey His commandments & in doing so choose life over death.
If we remain in this world as we are, in partaking of ungodly ways & living in pride, selfishness & rejection of Jesus Christ, we stand condemned by our own actions. However if we receive Gods word to us, which is life & freedom & hear & obey then we pass from death to life. For all who receive Him pass from death to life.
All who call upon His name shall be saved. The Kingdom of God is at hand. In fact it is available to all who open their hearts & live their lives in obedience to Him. He is longing for you to open your hearts & lives to Him so He can Heal & cleanse you! Allow Gods goodness & love to touch
you & set you free from all that holds you captive. He came to heal the broken hearted . He came to give sight to the blind. He came to save those who are lost. Like sheep gone astray. It is time to return unto God & allow Him to put us back together! 

The world is shaking
“...Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and  godly fear.” 
(
Hebrews 12:26-28 Bible). 
Let’s not be an ostrich & stick our heads in the sand & pretend there is nothing wrong! The facts are, there is much wrong, & it starts with our gross ungodliness & arrogance, turning away 
from acknowledging the truth. “God’s Word”....Yes it is His word alone that gives freedom, life, blessing, healing, deliverance & peace. It is in the Gospel that we have the knowledge of God’s 
purpose, way & salvation. For it is the power of God expressed unto us.  Christian & non Christian alike, it is time to look closely at what motivates you, what is the strongest desire in your life? What are you spending your time, effort, strength & money & achieving in this life. Is it is to acquire the best & “keep up with the Jones’s”. Is it about gathering wealth & satisfying your own desires, over the hurt & rejection of others, even the ones you love? Is it work, sport, travel, hobbies.... the list goes on. All these are not necessarily bad in themselves, but when they become our prime desire, then we have missed the mark & are speedily heading for disaster. “What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world & lose his own soul? (Math 16:26).
What foundation are we laying? What seeds are we sowing? because we will reap what we sow! If we sow ungodliness we will indeed be counted amongst the ungodly in the day of theLord. If we sow righteousness (endeavour to live in right standing with God, by submitting to His guidance, blessing & love) then we will inherit salvation, blessing & the favour of God in our lives & for eternity. God sends a great shaking that will reveal the purposes & attitudes of our hearts. We all will be layed bare & stripped naked leaving only what is good, righteous & Holy.
