The 7 Ps of Revival.

Coal Fire

The seven Ps of revival:

PROMISE – God gives general promises from Scripture and specific promises from prophetic words.

PRAYER – This is not nice tidy prayer, but costly prayer as we humble ourselves before God and seek him and his face and hand before everything else. Continuing prayer movements is also a mark of revivals

PROCLAMATION (1) – This is both bold proclamation of the Gospel and of what God is already doing elsewhere.

PRESENCE – One hallmark of a true revival is the presence of God, both in a building and beyond it and associated with people wherever they are.

PURITY – One response to God’s presence is confession of sin and sin being dealt with radically, compromise is no longer an option.

PRAISE – Whenever God moves in revival power a new sound of praise and worship comes out of it as people sing a new song to the Lord.

POWER – Revival is a power encounter with God, God moves in healing, deliverance and miracles in an extraordinary way.

PROCLAMATION (2) – Continued boldness proclaiming the Gospel and new missionary movements are born out of revival.

I’ll look at each of these in turn in blog posts and link them to this post as I do them.

Revival – A Short Definition.

Coal Fire

Here is a short definition of revival I came up with, it’s not perfect but I think it sums it up quite well:

Revival is a sovereign move of God in response to the Prayers of the saints for God to fulfil his Promises, where we see an extraordinary manifestation of the Kingdom of God by his Presence and Power, and the church restored to Purity and resounding with a new sound of Praise.
This then goes beyond the walls of churches with bold Proclamation of the gospel which results in souls saved, and leads to a radical change of the society where it happens that is beyond that which could be accomplished by human power or reason alone.
