End Time Revival?

While many are looking forward to great national and worldwide revival that will turn their nations to the Lord. I find the expectation of revival described in the article and video below has a much more sound biblical foundation, and has been my view for many years.

Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. (Luke 21:10-13) NKJV

Revival or Persecution? Unmasking What Revelation Tells Us About the End Times.

One of the most precious promises in the Bible is Acts 2:17, that “In the last days it shall be,’ says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh” (Acts 2:17). We understand this to be a promise of a world-wide revival in the end times. (Yeshua also said that the “harvest is the end of the world” (Matt. 13:39).

Some people do not believe in such a revival in the end times. They point to the prophecies about persecution and tribulation and the Antichrist in the end times, and conclude (reasonably enough) that there could be no widespread revival.

So which is it? Revival or persecution? Victory or tribulation? The answer of course is both. There is revival in the midst of persecution; victory in the midst of tribulation.

  1. AMEN !! By which I mean, literally, “So it is.” Absolutely scripture’s teaching, revival and persecution in tandem…until Jesus’ complete victory, and Rule.

  2. I have seen greater freedom to speak of the things of God with the pandemic. And I just heard that Bibles are selling out. After 9/11 there was also a run on Bibles.

    Yet the following Bible verse gives me pause:

    Matthew 12:45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.

    When ‘houses are being swept clean’, by earthly trials or persecutions, it doesn’t automatically mean they will get filled up, or stay filled up, with faith in Jesus. There is a chance of some ending up more apostate than prior as time passes.

    Lord willing, we who are ‘on the vine now’ will remain clinging to life in Christ!

    Not that I am disagreeing with what’s been put forth here. Greater persecution happens because so many have fallen away/grown apostate, as the Bible makes clear will happen (Matthew 24:12, 2 Timothy 3, etc.). and it is in times of persecution that the church grows/revives as in no other time! So all of this can and does fit together.

    There is just much to ponder and prepare our hearts for 🙂

  3. That’s a very sobering warning from Matt 12.

    There will also be those who turn to God out of fear and panic who will turn away again when their circumstances change.
    The parable of the sower touches on situations like that – some who eagerly turn to God will fall away when further difficulties arise, others will return to their comforts and become unfruitful.
