Chapter 12 – Old Testament Revivals


Upon completion of this chapter you will be able to:

  • Write the Key Verse from memory.

God moves in this world through people who walk in obedience to principles revealed in His Word. The study of Old Testament revivals provides principles which can be applied to prepare you for the reviving move of God in your own life. We have the assurance of Scripture that…

…whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.
(Romans 15:4)

Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written
for our admonition… (I Corinthians 10:11)
