Scripture Focus…

“Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.”
(Isaiah 43:19 MSG)


The following commentary to Isaiah 43:19 was taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Has not our unbelief sometimes fed upon the novelty of the promised blessing? It seemed a new thing to you sinners that the Lord should in a moment pass by your sins, and make you righteous in the righteousness of Christ; yet the new thing has come to pass. When we hear of a more than ordinarily successful Christian work, many who have not been favored with such prosperity cannot believe it to be true. Had they seen two or three people converted and added to the church in a year, they would have said, “This is the finger of God,” but if they hear of forty or a hundred, or even a thousand converted during a gracious revival, they are very skeptical. The conversion of thousands under one sermon they admit may have taken place in Old Testament times, but that is a long time ago; we cannot expect to see such things now. Thus, they reason in their hearts, and insinuate that the Lord’s arm has waxed short. Oh, brethren, if God has given us a promise which has not yet been fulfilled, and if there never has before occurred anything like it, this is no excuse for our disbelieving the divine Word. Has He not promised, “Behold, I will do a new thing”? Did He not say to His people Israel, “I have shown you new things from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them”? Is not everything new when for the first time the Lord reveals it? (CHS)

The following excerpt is taken from Opened Windows The Church and Revival by James A. Stewart:

Believing for Revival

Whenever revival has broken out during the course of our own ministry we have always searched quietly and reverently to discover what individual or group of believers had been embracing the promises. We know that revival does not come because of the eloquence of great preachers, or because of the power of a great organization. It is the supernatural spontaneous work of God, which commences in the secret place of intercession, because some believers dare to believe that God can fulfil His word even today. (Revival never begins with a great noise or with great crowds.) I could give countless illustrations of this blessed fact. I have known of whole groups of churches lifted up to a high standard of holiness and thousands of souls saved as the result of a few believers who held on to God to do a “new thing” (Isa. 43:19).

One day in a northern city of Eastern Europe (now in Soviet Russia) I was concerned because, for no apparent reason, God had suddenly sent revival. In other cities and countries it usually comes after several weeks or even months of throne ministry. But here on the fifth day, the heavens were rent asunder, and we were deluged with heaven-sent blessing. One thousand believers packed the church building each morning for Bible study. Thousands heard the Gospel in the evening in a larger auditorium. So great was the hunger for the Word among the unsaved that there was no room for the believers in the evening service. I asked them to go to their own churches and pray and not take up the seats which should be occupied with unsaved. The spiritual distress among the unsaved was great, as the Sword of the Spirit stabbed their hearts night after night. It was midnight and after before I could leave the building. I was greatly disturbed in my mind and could not sleep, being at a loss to explain the “open windows” (Mal. 3:10). I had arrived unheralded and unknown, only by the invitation of the Holy Spirit. The meetings had commenced on a Friday night with some seven people at a prayer meeting!

One evening the Lord very kindly allowed me to discover the secret of blessing. Being afraid that I would not have sufficient power of the Sprit to proclaim the Evangel to the thousands who had gathered, I made my way to the basement of the auditorium in order to have a few minutes more of prayer. I began to pray in the darkness, but it was not long before I felt an overwhelming sense of the majesty of God. I knew right away there was someone else in the large basement, praying. I quietly put on the light, and there I saw at the extreme end of the basement some twelve sisters, flat on their faces before God! They were totally unaware of my presence. They were “inside the veil,” touching the Throne, by the power of the Spirit, while upstairs God was working mightily among the unsaved.
