A Brief Teaching on Revival

– Brief Outline –

The Serpent of Moses

The Serpent of Moses devoured the serpents of the Egyptian magicians. For a season there was one manifestation with two spirits at work. Discernment is critical for the Day we are in.

Zerubbabel’s Revival and the Rebuilding of the Temple

A True Revival

Temple rebuilt – but…

“And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the Lord; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid. But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy: So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.” (Ezra 3:11-13)

Zerubbabel means – “Born in Babylon”

Why did the elder priests, Levites, and the chief of the fathers weep while the younger ones shouted for joy? Because they realized there were things of God that were missing from the “first house” nevertheless God was moving and restoring His covenant to them even in their captivity!

Things missing from the former house and the size of the new compared with the glory of the “first house”.

  1. The ark of the covenant,
  2. The stone tablets
  3. The golden altar
  4. Aaron’s staff that budded
  5. The Urim and Thummim
  6. The Eternal Fire

All God-inspired revivals are a blessing and we should always rejoice in God’s mercy at work in His people but, we must be discerning as to the depth and the scope of each. As with all things, it is important for us to remain in the Spirit so that we may not be carried away in the emotion of the moment that we may see that which is of the Spirit and that which is of the flesh.

A Scriptural Example of False Revivals

False Revival – Man’s Ways

Also Adonijah – 1 Kings 1-2


“And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Beth–el, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Beth–el the priests of the high places which he had made. So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Beth–el the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Israel: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense.” (1 Kings 12:32-33)

Jeroboam’s name means – “May the people increase” or “The increase of people”

Lloydminster – sovereign move among the unsaved apart from others (as far as I know).

“He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.” (John 1:41)

Among His Own

Solomon – a New Temple
(A New Wine Skin)

1 Kings 8:1 – 11
2 Chronicles 5:13-14


“And they were as one to the trumpeters, and to the singers to cause one sound to be heard to praise and to thank Jehovah. And when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised Jehovah, saying, For He is good; for his mercy endures forever; and a cloud filled the house, the house of Jehovah; so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of Jehovah had filled the house of God.” (2 Chronicles 5:13-14)


2 Chronicles 29-30 chapters, specifically read Chronicles 29:1-11

In The Day of the Lord, He will pour out on His own…

The Spirit of Grace and Supplication

Please See: Zechariah 12:10-13:1

The true Spirit of Grace will always bring His people to the spirit of supplication (deep intercession)!

As Frank Bartleman declared: “The depth of revival will be proportional to the depth of repentance”

Even so, Lord Come and pour out afresh the “Spirit of Grace and Supplication!

Jeremiah’s Prophecy concerning the Ark and the promise of the New Covenant

“And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more”
Jeremiah 3:16

God is always moving us toward the Day of the Son; for in Him is the utter fulfillment of all things.

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.”
John 2:19-21

Christ, Himself is the Temple and He embodies all of the true fulfillment of the furniture which is given to bear us the testimony of His ministrations.

  • Gary Fultz says:

    I find myself constantly asking for wisdom and awareness in our times, with people and with how God is moving in my own heart each day. A good and thorough teaching the prayers for revival are often asking God for a predetermined outcome as a result, rather than humility and a contrite heart seeped in repentance.

    • Brian T. says:

      Yes amen, God never fits into our schedule, our concepts, or our expectations. Namaan almost missed his healing because of his ideas about how God would do it; so with us.

      Always appreciate your input, your wisdom, and your heart.

      Blessings to you brother
