The LAST REVIVAL

by David Wilkerson

 

What is ahead for the church of Jesus Christ? This is a question

of great concern to believers worldwide. As cataclysmic events

take place all over the globe, many are wondering, “Is the Holy

Spirit going to revive the church before Jesus returns? Will

Christ´s body leave this world with a whimper or with a shout?”

 

The New Testament is filled with predictions of a last-days falling

away. False prophets will rise up and lead many astray. Wolves

will come in sheep´s clothing, bringing powerful deceptions to

“deceive, if possible, even the elect of God.” Wickedness will

abound, causing once-hot believers to lose their first love. With

the flood of iniquity to come, the love of many will grow cold.

 

Jesus prophesied these very things. And his warnings were

meant to challenge our faith. As overwhelming iniquity floods

the earth, he asks: “When the Son of man cometh, shall he

find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:).

 

Think about it: Christ knew everything we would be witnessing

today, from horrifying school shootings, to the rise of militant

homosexuality, to terrorist acts taking place throughout the

world. In the midst of these things, he asks us, “Will you

continue to believe, though things wax worse? Will you faint in

your confidence when things don´t happen as you thought they

would? Or, will you continue to trust in me?”

 

You see, despite the rise in iniquity and great calamities, Jesus

knew there would be a great last-days revival. The Holy Spirit

inspired Isaiah´s prophecies, and he knew full well about the

prediction of a revival as the end draws near.

 

Isaiah said there would be a great, worldwide awakening just

prior to Christ´s return.

 

This prophecy is found in Isaiah 54 and is summed up in these

verses: “Thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left;

and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate

cities to be inhabited” (54:3).

 

I believe with a number of Bible scholars that Isaiah´s prophecy

has a dual application. It speaks not only about natural Israel

after captivity in Babylon, but also about the spiritual Israel that

was to come: the body of Jesus Christ, the church of the New

Jerusalem. Paul quotes from Isaiah 54 when he refers to the

“Jerusalem which is above…the mother of us all” (Galatians 4:26).

Paul saw Isaiah´s prophecy as directed “to the children of

promise,” those in Christ by faith.

  1. WHAT “END TIME” WORLD WIDE REVIVAL??
    Reference to an “END TIME” World Wide Revival is often stated and proclaimed by some Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers (Ephesians 4:11) Where are the Bible Scriptures to support such a claim? Where in the Bible does it mention an End Time World Wide REVIVAL? Like the Bereans in Apostle Paul’s day (Acts 17:11) We too are searching the Bible Scriptures to “confirm” such a proclamation.
    Bible Scriptures: in the Old & New Testament are constantly commanding that we ought to REPENT OF OUR SINS; TURN AWAY FROM THEM & TURN TO GOD. We are to REPENT of our wickedness and disobedience to God’s Word (Acts 17:30)

    In recent years, there was a “coming together” of people from all over the United States and the world. It was called: THE BROWNSVILLE REVIVAL. This was NOT a revival. This event was called a revival, but actually this was a “CALL” by the Almighty God for WORLD WIDE REPENTENCE. This certainly included the United States and the ENTIRE WORLD population. As a result of that year long move of the HOLY SPIRIT; multiple thousands of souls were drawn to this location: the people CRIED OUT and REPENTED OF THEIR SINS (turned from their wickedness and unrighteousness) they were Born-again and filled with the Holy Spirit (John3;5/Acts 2:38/Acts 4:12/Acts 10:44-48/Acts 19:3-6)

    In retrospect, Noah DID NOT preach any REVIVAL MESSAGES!! He told the inhabitants that it would RAIN (a warning of judgment) The Almighty God instructed Noah to also prepare and Ark in order to escape the COMPLETE DESTRUCTION of the entire earth. No living soul; human, plant, foul or animal would survive OUTSIDE of the protection of the Ark. (Genesis 6:11-17)

    Not Lot, the nephew of Abraham– nor any of the Angels preached a REVIVAL MESSAGE before “FIRE AND BRIMSTONE” rained down upon the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah; resulting in their COMPLETE DEVASTATION AND TOTAL DESTRUCTION— not only those two cities, but ALL the surrounding cities, plains and inhabitants. Not even the animals and ground escaped destruction. (Genesis 19:24-29) The Almighty God — WARNS THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD through His Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers — BEFORE JUDGMENT (Ezekiel 33:11)
    “Say unto them, As I live saith the Lord God, I have NO PLEASURE in the DEATH OF THE WICKED; but that the wicked TURN FROM HIS WAY AND LIVE… Turn YOU— TURN YOU— FROM YOUR EVIL WAYS— FOR WHY WILL YOU DIE?”

    God is still asking the very same question today: WHY DO YOU REFUSE TO REPENT & TURN AWAY FROM YOUR WICKEDNESS?? Father God has provided a way of “escape” through the SHED BLOOD & SACRIFICE OF HIS SON: JESUS CHRIST (Act2 4:12)

    NO “END TIME” REVIVALS— BEFORE THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! (I Thessalonians 5:2)

  2. JESUS– WARNED THE MULTITUDE during His earthly ministry:
    “…Except YOU REPENT– YOU SHALL ALL — likewise PERISH”
    Luke 13:3-5

    Jesus went about preaching and teaching the people of that day: proclaiming The GOSPEL; “THE GOOD NEWS”— Even in Matthew 24:14, Jesus speaks of the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM shall be preached in ALL THE WORLD for a witness unto ALL NATIONS; then shall THE END COME”
    This Bible Scripture has NO reference to a WORLD WIDE REVIVAL!! As we have mentioned in our previous comment on this subject; JESUS NEVER instructed any of His Followers or Disciples to speak on an END TIME REVIVAL. Last Book of the New Testament written by John– NEVER speaks of a WORLD WIDE REVIVAL!! The Lord God is addressing the SEVEN CHURCHES and some are told TO REPENT!! The 3 are listed below—

    Revelation 2:5 (Church of Ephesus)
    Revelation 2:21 (Church of Thyatira)
    Revelation 3:19 (Church of Laodiceans)

    And the majority of END TIME messages on this website are from the LORD JESUS telling us to REPENT–
    “In those days came John the Baptist PREACHING in the wilderness of Judea. And saying, REPENT YOU; FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND” (Matthew 3:1-2)

    As it was in John the Baptist’s day– so it is still for us to REPENT OF OUR SINS & FORSAKE THEM and Live a RIGHTEOUS LIFE before the Almighty God.
    “But YOU are a CHOSEN GENERATION, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD and Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that YOU SHOULD show forth the PRAISES OF HIM (JESUS CHRIST) who has called you out of darkness into HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT…” (I Peter 2:9)

    “And they (Jesus’ Disciples) went out and PREACHED that men SHOULD— REPENT” (Mark 6:12)
