What is Revival?
We need a revelation of revival, those who have study revival for years, those who think they know what revival is, don’t even understand revival, for you need revelation to understand revival. –(1 Cor. 2:9-10)
We need a revelation of revival! The Holy Spirit has begun to talk to me about revival, and He wants me to teach you the revelation of revival that the Lord is giving me for the church. Let those who have an ear hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the church! –(Rev. 2:29)
One word the Lord spoke to me is this is the new apostolic age of revival! This is why the revelation of revival is coming, you need to have faith for revival, and in order for you to have faith for revival you need a revelation of revival.

For years I have been lead to prophecy about revival, the Lord has spoke to me more then a few times about revival, and the church needs to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying about the coming revivals! Now the Lord in His wisdom is going to release the revelation of revival. Not just to me but other prophets and apostles who have apostolic ears to hear the revelation that is coming from the Throne Room. The Lord has brought me from prophecy about revival to revelation of revival, and the Lord wants you to hear and receive with grace. –(Ezek. 37:1-14)
I believe the church will become full of revivals, then overflow upon cities and nations, the church will be full of revival and glory, then the earth will become full of revival and glory. It is not just one revival, it is many revivals, there will never be a time between revival without revival, before a revival ends another revival will begin, there be revival there and here, the church will never again be without revival, and this is the will of the Lord. Revival will come to every city and to every place! –(Eph. 5:27)
Apostles and prophets are laying the foundation for reformation, and reformation is laying the foundation for lasting revivals, many revivals and the revival life. The Holy Spirit spoke to me saying to the degree of reformation we have entered through is the degree of revival we will have. –(Eph. 2:19-22)
Apart from this, there is reformation, revival, social transformation, and Harvest. –(Acts 3:19-21)
Repentance is one of the keys to revival, but throughout the Holy Scriptures repentance is not always needed for revival, only a little percent of time repentance brought revival, yes there is repentance in revival, those who preach repentance and are attacking revivals without repentance is preaching a false repentance, preaching repentance legalism, true repentance is with grace, those who don’t repent of this repentance legalism and attacking true Spirit of revival, will never be apart of the coming revivals. –(Acts 3:19-21, 2 Chron. 7:14)
