Q. I hear of many churches, including my church, speaking of a last days revival. While I want to be part of any soul saving the Lord has in store for my community, I don’t see this last days revival in scriptures.I actually see the opposite in that there will be a falling away such as in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. Please comment.
A. I agree with you. The Bible doesn’t call for any last days revival, nor is there any evidence that such a thing is taking place. This is a false teaching from dominion theology, which holds that the Church will take over the world in the last days.
The Bible says the true Church will grow weaker and less influential in the last days (Rev. 3:8), and that there will be a falling away of “in-name-only” Christians from Bible centered churches to those that say what people want to hear (2 Tim. 4:3). All you have to do is look around to see these things happening.
