Why No Revival? A Very Early Jack Chick Tract
Jack Chick is controversial. I don't agree with him, about Pre-Trib Rapture and Israel among several things however this is an interesting video. I read Jack Chick tracts before being saved.
With the word "revival", while growing in faith with the Holy Spirit's help once a Christian is born again is a good thing, I do not hold to the group concept of "revival" in that the Bible tells us this world is going to wax worse and worse. Our faith and commitment to the Lord can be "revived" but the idea of group change is more dubious.
Psalms 85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
There will be no Utopian time where revival reigns, that only time this will happen is after Jesus's return and we are in eternity with Him. Even those "great Awakenings" you hear about in American history class often were fueled by false prophets such as Calvinists and Millerites, though obviously people would become truly born again. The tract is truthful about many pitfalls in the Christian churches and Christian life.
