What is Revival?
Most of us have grown up hearing about revival meetings -- healing revivals, evangelistic revivals, miracle revivals; but what is the true meaning of revival? We've been told to pray for revival, seek for revival, or give for revival. But how does revival really come?
Today we examine the Word of God, and take away with us a new appreciation for what true revival really is and what we must do to see it in our own life.

How Can We Experience Revival?
In Ezekiel chapter 37, we read about the valley of dry bones. As Ezekiel obeyed God and spoke the Word of the Lord, those bones were clothed with flesh, and then God breathed life into them, raising them into a great army.
If revival was ever talked about in the Bible, this certainly would be one of those times, wouldn't you agree? The people of God, dry and without hope. And God says to them, "O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel."
Do we need this kind of revival today? Perhaps you feel empty and dry. You don't have life, you don't have joy, and you don't have any living hope. But God wants to open your grave, and cause you to come up out of your grave, and bring you into the land of the living where you have joy and life and purpose and hope.
The truth is that, even though God loves to bless his people, the revival we need to see in our time is not one of financial prosperity, miracles, healings, or signs and wonders. Those things will come when and how God determines as we obey him.
But the revival we desperately need is one of getting serious with God, more serious than we are about taking our next breath. And God will not raise us up from our valley of dry bones as a great, jolly country club who rules the world. Rather, he will raise us up as a great army, to war in the spirit and go out and make a difference in our land; as it says in Ezekiel 37:10, "and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army."
