Until recently, I prayed for revival. I thought it would be awesome if the Holy Spirit would light a fire in the Church and get people burning for Christ again. Signs and wonders would abound and people would be saved left and right. A “Greater Awakening,” if you will.
I believe, as I heard an evangelist say recently, that God is calling for and indeed beginning not a revival of how things supposedly were once upon a time but a new revolution that will be something, somehow, new.
I’m not sure what this will look like or how this will happen. I’m just saying…..
