The word "Revival" has lost it's meaning in our world. Many churches have "revival" meetings they plan for 1 day to 2 weeks long. What they are really having is crusades. True revival starts in the heart. Joel 2:13 talks about rending our hearts, in other words ripping it out. God doesn't want us to just pay lip service to our relationship with Him, He wants us to give our all to Him. The last 2 major "revivals" in our country were started by students. In the 1970's The Asbury Revival started @ Asbury U and Seminary in KY. In the 1990's it started in Brownsville, TX by a college student at Coggin Ave. Baptist and moved to Southwestern Seminary where I was attending. Revival starts with me. My prayer is that I can be totally submitted to Him. II Chronicles 7:14

revivals are, or at least began, as a "renewal" of the spirit of a believer, a follower of God, of Christ, but somewhere along the lines, it DID become one of those "crusades." these days it's the exact opposite of what is necessary, but at the same time, it's exactly what is necessary. the problem is this- most of the "Church" (what has been referred to as believers in Jesus of Nazareth, aka identified with the Body of Christ) has no idea what it means to follow Christ, whether they are believers or not, they were never properly discipled and taught one-on-one the ways of God. and so for one, you need a crusade within the church, but you also need a revival for those who have lost hope, faith, and love in the One who saved them. unfortunately, they desperately need to be done at SEPARATE times.
