Purpose of Revival:
To carry out Great Commission
The Great Commission is carried out as the fruit of the revival. Revival is an outpouring upon the Church collectively to carry out the Great Commission. In Acts 1: 8, the reason for revival in the Church is clear. "... But you will receive power as the Holy Spirit (revival / empowerment) descends upon you ... and you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, all Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth (purpose = Great Commission)”. If we do not want to go to cities or nations to speak about the love of God to the lost, it does not make sense to receive the power from above that is released in revival; God´s goal is to reach the world and not just us.
As we fulfil the Great Commission, then the return of Jesus will come (Matthew 28:19). Revival will push the Church to do this, to go after the lost; the world will see the Church full of the glory of God and will be drawn to know him. We need a Holy Spirit outpouring to stand in our identity as the Church, doing our part to fulfil this Great Commission. Without revival, we will not be able to prepare the way for Jesus' return by preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, as in Matthew 24:14.
The fate of a city, of a nation, is in the hands of the Church. We need to position ourselves for this responsibilty.

- There is extraordinary numerical growth in the Church, membership multiplies supernaturally.
- Society now respects the Church as the Divine Institution it is.
- This revival does not come to liberals, mystics, syncretists and the merely religious, but to a people desperately longing for the presence of God.

Revivals, Great Awakenings and visitations from God in the United Kingdom over time
This timeline is to help you get to know and understand God's moves within the UK from when God used a humble man in Ireland (in the 5th Century), Saint Patrick, through many other men and events up until modern times. These men defied the circumstances of their times and made history, being hungry and desperate for the presence of God. Many of them were not understood in their day, but today are examples of people who dared to obey God and in doing so, changed the course of history. Here in the United Kingdom, there were many visitations from the Lord which touched generations both here and around the world, writing chapters of the history of the Church. These amazing accounts demonstrate God's great love for Britain. You will know all or some of the following ‘brave hearts’ for God. We believe that there were many others whom history did not recognise, but they are eternally recorded by the Lord.
We are the next generation that will make history in the UK; WE who are here now on this site, wanting to know more about revivals and about God's next move in the nations of Great Britain.
... If you agree, say Amen!!
