TOPIC: Holy Spirit: The Chief Agent of Revival

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ezekiel 37:1-12 
37 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, 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.

“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”
Psalms 85:6

MFM Daily Devotional 13 January 2024 MESSAGE

The utmost desire of God for every child of the Kingdom is for him or her to be on fire perpetually, gloriously fulfilling divine purpose. However, it has been discovered that the enemy of our souls is always at work projecting the spirit of lukewarmness against believers. So many who used to burn for the Master have been swallowed up by the monster of backsliding.

The love of so many has waxed cold and heaven is weeping over the failure and spiritual bankruptcy of many Christians. This is the time to cry to God to send down revival truly.

What is your spiritual state at this moment? Can God boast about you as He boasted to satan about Job? Are you making Jesus happy? Or are you one of those who are always grieving the Holy Spirit? If you cannot answer these questions confidently from a positive angle, then you need revival.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 12 January 2024 – Do Things Differently (IV)

As a believer, when do you need to cry for revival? You need to cry for revival when your hunger for God has disappeared, when worldliness has taken over your soul, when holiness is no longer your priority, when prayer is no longer your commitment when you no longer have passion for lost souls; when Mr flesh has taken dominion over your life, when you see yourself always falling short of divine expectations, when Bible reading is now boring and has been neglected all together, etc. Many modern-day believers are neck-deep in varied degrees of spiritual rut.

However, engaging the power of the Holy Spirit is the surest way out of the spiritual rut. The Holy Spirit of God is the Chief Agent of revival. He is the Spirit of revival. When you sincerely acknowledge that you are in the grave of spiritual dryness, cry to God for revival, and just as the wind of God came upon the dry bones we read about in our Fire Scripture and raised them up as a mighty army, so also will the Breath of the Holy Spirit come upon you to revive you again, in Jesus’ name.
