“For thus says the High and Lofty One … I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” (Isaiah 57:15).
What is revival? Is it still possible today? How can we experience it personally? As we look at the events occurring in our nation and around the world, we may wonder-where is it all heading? The world certainly seems ripe for judgment, but revival may be just around the corner.
In Consuming Fire, Pastor Brian Brodersen reminds us that throughout history, God’s patience has been a defining characteristic of His interaction with mankind. The revivals of the past show that not only has He been reluctant to judge, He has delighted in showing mercy!
Can we say for sure that a worldwide awakening is coming? No. But of this we can be sure: Personal revival is guaranteed to those who follow God’s blueprint found in the Scriptures. Those men and women who wholeheartedly dedicate their lives to Christ will find Him to be a Consuming Fire.
