The Purpose of Revival.

“I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4 NKJV.

To glorify God the Father on earth was Jesus’ express purpose. To prepare for and live in revival, it is vitally important, that we possess this same desire to glorify God. He will not share His glory with another (Isa.42:8); but to and through those who are consumed with a passion to know God and give all the glory to Him, He will manifest the glory of His Person, His power, and His presence.

To glorify God is the Holy Spirit’s intent in revival (John 16:14).

 Jesus’ use of “glory” goes beyond the word’s use as commonly expressed. Jesus means to make known, to make or leave a favorable impression or opinion of the Father. Jesus’ life clearly did that: He glorified the Father, displaying on earth the splendor of a wondrously favorable impression of the Father.

When people saw Jesus, we saw the Father (John 14:9). But more importantly, Jesus explains how He glorified God: He “finished the work” the Father gave Him to do. To glorify God is to complete an assignment—to do those things He has called, chosen, appointed, and anointed us to do.

As churches are revived and cities transformed by the mighty works of the Holy Spirit, all the glory will be given back to the Father.

    Yes, God should get all of the glory, Manny.

    Rejuvenation of Christians is usually the purpose of revival, at least in my Church. However, I think there is a place for calling those who don’t believe to come to know our Savior at a revival.

    I pray that we have a revival in America, but at this point we may have to wait for the return of Jesus before we see one. I hope I am wrong. I do think revival is happening in other parts of the world.

    God’s blessings, my friend…

    Our country needs revival in the worst way. There is no fear of God in this land.
