Revival Answers, True and False Revivals, Genuine or Counterfeit
Do not be Deceived. Discerning Between the Holy Spirit and the Demonic.

What is true revival and how can we tell the genuine from the false, the true from the spurious? With many preachers claiming to have ‘revival,’ some wanting to impart it into your life, with many evangelists, churches and conferences declaring they will have revival (so come and receive a touch) – what is the truth?

Revival Answers, True and False Revivals will answer these questions and many others, so we can discern genuine heaven-sent revival and not be deceived by a counterfeit. Many Christians who faithfully and persistently prayed for revival have rejected a move of God because they did not recognise it. Let us not be guilty of resisting the Holy Spirit, or condoning the flesh or the demonic.

Drawing from Scripture and Church history, this book will sharpen your senses and take you on a journey of discovery. What God declares in His Word and what Church history records as you search for a personal revival, and a move of the Holy Spirit within your local fellowship and beyond.
