“Real revival does not begin with joyous singing. It begins with conviction and repentance on the part of Christians.”

“Revival is an infusion of new spiritual life imparted by the Holy Spirit to existing parts of Christ’s body.”

~ Richard Lovelace

Richard F. Lovelace

“If Christianity is to receive a rejuvenation, it must be by other means than any now being used. If the Church in the second half of this century is to recover from the injuries she suffered in the first half, there must appear a new type of leader. The proper, ruler-of-the-synagogue type will never do. Neither will the priestly type of man who carries out his duties, takes his pay and asks no questions, nor the smooth-talking pastoral type who knows how to make the Christian religion acceptable to everyone. All these have been tried and found wanting.

Another kind of religious leader must arise among us. He must be of the old prophet type, a man who has seen visions of God and has heard a voice from the Throne. When he comes (and I pray God there will be not one but many), he will stand in flat contradiction to everything our smirking, smooth civilization holds dear. He will contradict, denounce and protest in the name of God and will earn the hatred and opposition of a large segment of Christendom. Such a man is likely to be lean, rugged, blunt-spoken and a little bit angry with the world. He will love Christ and the souls of men to the point of willingness to die for the glory of the One and the salvation of the other. But he will fear nothing that breathes with mortal breath.”

~A.W. Tozer, The Size of the Soul, 128-129.

“Oh for a great and general revival of true religion…Let us pray for such a visitation of the Holy Ghost with our whole souls. It is not only desirable, it is essential; we must either be revived by the Lord Himself, or the churches will descend until error and ungodliness swallow them up. This calamity shall not happen but only divine grace can avert it.”

~ C.H. Spurgeon

“O, prostitute Church, you have displayed your foulness to the whole world and you stink to Heaven. You have multiplied your fornications in Italy, in France, in Spain and in all other arts. Behold, I will put forth my hand, says the Lord, I will smite you, you infamous wretch… O priests…you whose example has entombed this people in the sepulchre of ceremonial, I tell you this sepulchre shall be burst asunder, for Christ will revive His Church in His Spirit.”

~ Savonarola (shortly before his martyrdom in 1498 when he was burnt at the stake)

“As long as we are content to live without revival, we will.”

~ Leonard Ravenhill

“There is a growing conviction everywhere, and especially among thoughtful people, that unless revival comes, other forces will take the field, that will sink us still deeper into the mire of humanism and materialism.”

~Duncan Campbell

“Revival brings back a holy shock to apathy and carelessness.”

 

“When Holy God draws near in true revival, people come under terrible conviction of sin. The outstanding feature of spiritual awakening has been the profound consciousness of the Presence and holiness of God.”

~ Henry Blackaby

“Revival begins in the individual’s heart. Let it begin with you on your face alone before God. Turn from every sin that might hinder. Renew yourself to a new devotion to the Savior.”
