Revival is not really an early Christian, nor even Scriptural, concept. It is used primarily by Protestants beginning in the 18th century. Thus, the quotes on this page begin quite late in Christian history.
So much as one person with a contrary spirit to God is enough to affect all the meetings - that the revival fire did not flow until that person broke and confessed, or the Lord removed him. (unknown)
I do not understand Christian people who are not thrilled by the whole idea of revival. . . . If you want a perfect exposition of 1 Corinthians 1:25-31, read books on revival. (unknown)
