The global church is at the tipping point of a transforming revival. Discontentment has
turned to disillusionment with traditional religion, but mercy drops from God are awakening
the Church to its real need. Voraciously hungry and desperately thirsty souls yearn for
something they cannot identify. Though they may not yet know what will satisfy, it is God’s
presence they long for. Like a mother who knows the cry of her baby and quickly
responds, so God hastens at the voice of His child.
Each trusting cry ripples upward to the God Who hears—hope does not disappoint. We are
approaching a critical mass of collective prayer that will soon touch our Father’s heart and
move Him to pour out repentance and revival like the world has never known.
A look at past revivals informs us of many things—common preconditions and our need
for revival is seen all the more when His presence comes and changes everything. There
are examples of great things that happened from past revivals like salvation and changes in
society and culture. Along with these, unfortunately, revival also is a time of division and
denominationalisms to many. Some old ways must pass away. Unfortunately, not many
embrace the changes required. This creates a rift between those who want the change of
bold, fresh wine and those who are unhappy about change.
This rift however, is not the worst effect of revival—lack of sustainability is. History
records that in addition to paradigm shifts, there are diverse demonstrations of the
presence and power of God. This is good; however, the hardest thing about revival is
knowing how to turn it into a sustainable transformation. Jesus taught us that the soil that
produces most quickly has no ability to endure the test of time.
Since the book of Acts, the last 2000 years have seen a few fingerprints in most of the
places where God has poured out revival. The Azusa Street revival which ended in
roughly 1909 may be an exception. For the past 100 years, there have been pockets of
revivals born out of this outpouring. However, Martin Luther set the limit of influence from a
revival to thirty years, and Isaac Taylor set it at fifty. Rarely does revival last beyond a
generation. In fact, after a few years, some places appeared to be worse than they were
before God’s move. The recent memory may as well be the Lakeland Revival or Florida
Healing Outpouring, which began on April 2, 2008, with Evangelist Todd Bentley of Fresh
Fire Ministries and lasted for about 8 months.
Think of the national revival in the biblical Nineveh, brought on through the prophesies of
Jonah; that repentance was short-lived. In 612 B.C. Nineveh was swept away by an
overwhelming flood of God’s judgment because of her rebellion (Nahum 1:8). “What started
with a pattern of revelation ends by the process of crystallization, terminating in
secularization” (Edwin Louis Cole, 1992). Why?
For decades, numerous servants of God have prophesied about the soon-coming revival.
Prophets like William Seymour, who lead the Azusa Street revival, declared that a great
revival would occur 100 years after the Azusa outpouring that ended 1909. I am thirsty for
a sustainable transforming revival that will change the culture, land and peoples of the
world and set the Kingdom of our God and His Son on top of the mountain. I need a wine
that is new every morning. Bold, fresh wine is necessary for a sustainable transforming
“God has privileged us in Christ Jesus to live above the ordinary human plane of life. Those
who want to be ordinary and live on a lower plane can do so, but as for me, I will not”
Smith Wigglesworth (2000).
