THE NECESSITY OF
A HOLY GHOST REVIVAL
1Chron. 17:3-6 (17-20); Ps. 85:6 (v4-7)
Psalm 85 was written at a time of spiritual awakening in Judah.
Such a revival took place during the reign of Jehoshaphat.
1Chron 17:3-6  And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,  (4)  Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in:  (5)  For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another.  (6)  Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?
Psalms 85:4-7  Turn us, O God of our salvation, And cause thine indignation toward us to cease.  5  Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?  6  Wilt thou not quicken us again, That thy people may rejoice in thee?  7  Show us thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, And grant us thy salvation.

THE NECESSITY OF REVIVAL.

1. Spiritual feebleness.

a. we have lost spiritual strength

Isa 12:2-3 "Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the LORD God IS my strength and song, and He has become my salvation." [3] Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation. 

b. we have lost the joy of the Lord.

c. David prayed that the joy of his salvation would be restored
Ps 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation, and sustain me with a willing spirit.

2. Spiritual anemia - diseased blood.

a. we need a spiritual transfusion.

b. we have polluted the worship of God.

3. We have substituted formality for power
2Tim 3:5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these.(NAS)

a. We have substituted acceptance by the world for deliverance from sin and spiritual liberty
Jas 4:4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.  (NAS)

b. We have exchanged participation by the world for separation from sin [compromise]
2Cor 6:17 "Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate," says the Lord. "And do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you. (NAS)
Isa 52:11   Depart, depart, go out from there, touch nothing unclean; go out of the midst of her, purify your-selves, you who carry the vessels of the LORD.  (NAS)

4. We have forsaken faith that produces results
Jude 3  Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.  (NAS)

a. The prayer of faith shall save the sick
Jas 5:15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 

b. Spiritual sickness - soul and spirit
1Thes 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (NAS)

c. Physical sicknesses and ailments.

d. Heb 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please {Him}, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and {that} He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.  (NAS)

THE AGENT BY WHOM REVIVAL IS EFFECTED.

1. Not by man - but by God - WILT THOU.

2. Hab. 3:2 "Revive Thy works in the midst of the years."  
NIV "Renew them in our day."

3. Zech 4:6 Then he answered and said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.  (NAS)

THE MEANS OF SECURING REVIVAL.

1. Prayer combined with expectancy - FAITH.

2. Revival comes when the church repents.

3. Sinners will not be born again in churches, until the church produces evidence it is.

4. Babes in Christ will have no desire to be Spirit-filled until saints of the church produces Fruit of the Spirit in their lives
Gal 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  [23] gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  [24] Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. [25] If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  [26] Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.  (NAS)

5. Saints that are spiritually dead need to go back to the well
Eph 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit,  (NAS)

RESULTS OF REVIVAL.

1. JOY – "that the people may rejoice in Thee."

2. SALVATION – Ps 13:5 - "My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation."

3. WATERED GARDEN – Growth –  
Jeremiah 31:12   "And they shall come and shout for joy on the height of Zion, and they shall be radiant over the bounty of the LORD-- over the grain, and the new wine, and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; and their life shall be like a watered garden, and they shall never languish again.  (NAS)

4. THIS IS REVIVAL!
