God has set in order gifts for His church. Ephesians 4:8,11, 12. tells us that these gifts are fivefold ministries that work together as a team for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ.
These gifts include, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. It is God's unique plan to bring man into a greater relationship with Him. I believe along with these gifts God uses men and women that have been anointed to assist as a "specialist." When the local church becomes diseased and has a "loss of breath," there is need of a resuscitation. It is God's ability flowing through his servant to help the pastor and the church that is in spiritual decline. I believe in Revival!
God has anointed those to perform CPR on His church today. Revival means; the process of being revived--to restore to a previous or better state after gradual decline.
I believe there cannot be evangelism without first having a reviving. God is calling for us to "wake, arise," and come to the place where we can be effective for the sinner and saint alike. God has placed within my heart a passion for His church and I desperately desire the Church to come and take her rightful place. Acts 2 is the birth of Revival! What's the difference in a series of services and "true revival?" It is an habitual change in the hearts of the people. Life replaces that once dead, decayed ritual of traditional methods. May God display His manifested glory to us once again and because of this glory become, FOREVER CHANGED!
