Revival is the atmosphere in which grace grows us.

revival final

But may the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, will perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.1 Peter 5:10.

 Our “God of all grace” has freely given us all that Christ accomplished in His death and resurrection. Grace is God’s love in action on our behalf, freely giving us His forgiveness, His acceptance, and His favor, and abiding with us as the operating power of heaven to meet every need in our lives.

In revival, the “manifold (polupoikilos, varied, many colored, ports of wisdom) grace of God”

v  Restores to wholeness (Greek, katartizo, “to restore, to repair, to perfect, bring to maturity, to complete, to mend, and to equip”);

v  He lays a solid foundation and grounds us securely in the truths of His unconditional love;

v  Provides the ability to stand firm, knowing His strength in our inner man to live triumphantly;

v  He brings the blessedness of His “rest” and the fullness of His promises.

 The ultimate purpose of revival is to glorify God the Father on earth as Jesus did. To prepare for and live in revival, it goes without saying that we must possess this same desire to glorify God. Let’s submit and get on with it!

    In revival, the “manifold grace of God” is well described by the four points you have listed here, Manny.

    “The ultimate purpose of revival is to glorify God the Father on earth as Jesus did.”

    I could not agree more.

    Our God is an awesome God.

    God’s blessings…
