Revival Bible Verses

Revival Bible verses are all throughout Scripture. They are not merely verses that say the word “revive,” they are verses instructing actions and words, enlightening hearts to what it means to be right with God through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Truly,

A genuine desire for Jesus Christ ignites revival in a heart and mind; it’s a life hungering and thirsting for righteousness.

A genuine desire for Jesus Christ is found in a repentant heart, a heart and mind recognizing God’s grace, a heart and mind submitted unto Him and prayerful, a heart’s desire to seek Him, a heart and mind knowing Christ’s forgiveness, and a heart and mind recognizing their dependence upon Him.

Revival Comes from Seeking God

Revival Arises in Those Who Know God’s Forgiveness

  • “In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.” Hebrews 9:22 NLT

  • “But our High Priest offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then he sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. There he waits until his enemies are humbled and made a footstool under his feet. For by that one offering he forever made perfect those who are being made holy.” Hebrews 10:12-14 NLT

  • “Where is another God like you, who pardons the guilt of the remnant, overlooking the sins of his special people? You will not stay angry with your people forever, because you delight in showing unfailing love. Once again you will have compassion on us. You will trample our sins under your feet and throw them into the depths of the ocean!” Micah 7:18-19 NLT

Revival Arises from Dependence upon God

  • “A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12 NLT

  • “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, ‘For your sake we are killed everyday; we are being slaughtered like sheep.’) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Romans 8:35-37 NLT

  • “But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Isaiah 54:17 NLT

Revival is not found in idolatrous people. It is found in those who have One God and are dependent upon Him.
