REVIVAL SIGNS

Same source as below – here are (according to Jim Packer) some defining signs of an authentic revival:

  • God comes down.
  • God’s Word pierces.
  • Man’s sin is seen.
  • Christ’s cross is valued.
  • Change goes deep.
  • Love breaks out.
  • Joy fills hearts.
  • Each church becomes itself—becomes, that is, the people of the divine presence in an experiential, as distinct from merely notional, sense.
  • The lost are found.
  • Satan keeps pace.

Not really liking the phrasing of the first one – creates too much of a ‘distant God above’ theology that flies in the face of His omnipresence and immanence.

Not quite sure what he meant at number 8?
