Continuous Revival Reviews
Good encouragement.Read it again in February of 2015. All these truths are glorious -- my one caution would be against the institutionalization of "open" fellowship, a caution which he himself notes. But very good.
Continuous Revival is a great 63 page booklet to pick up on a Sabbath afternoon and read strait through. As a Christian, you'll be reminded 1)how to "walk with Jesus", 2) of the humility of brokenness, 3) of the joy of having your "cup running over", 3) of what causes "cups to not run over", 4) of the necessity of "mouth-committal" once there has been a "heart-committal" 5) of the "further stage of revival fellowship" which entails "mutual exhortation", and lastly, 7) continuous revival being the "continuous walk" before "God and one another."
I loved this book. I think I just love honesty in the Christian life as well as visible and vital signs of the heartbeat of Christ in people, especially myself... Which is easier said than done, and easier done than maintained. Norman Percy Grubb emphasizes a felt-by-all realness that evades most churches today. He shows that maintaining a moment by moment WALK with Jesus is the first key to revival, then comes: brokenness, out-spilling joy-- that's unhindered by sin, a coming clean, an initiative to share joys and freedom from struggles via testimonies, sharing Jesus with the lost but not under compulsion and lastly a consensus of helping each other in this walk-- whether through correction or encouragement. My favorite chapter was chapter 2, called Brokenness. Basically, Grubb explains that the sins of Christians are like a house with a roof and walls. He says "...we are a two-way people." And "...Our obligations are two-way all the time." Actually, I just want to share this entire quote "So saving faith, the attitude of brokenness, is a two-way activity, towards God and man, as are righteousness and love and indeed all the relationships of Christian living. Indeed, we can put it this way. We can liken a man to a house. It has a roof and walls. So also man in his fallen state has a roof on top of his sins between him and God; and he also has walls up, between him and his neighbor. But at Salvation, when broken at the Cross, not only does the roof come off through faith in Christ, but the walls fall down flat, and the man's true condition as a sinner saved by grace is confessed before all men." And, "Continued revival is continued brokenness, but brokenness is two-way, and that means walls kept down as well as roof off." Another interesting thing he expresses it the fact that confession to men is harder than confession to God. Why? He says, "We just have to face the fact that we are very human, and our human relationships are more vivid to us than our fellowship with God. Thus we have a far more vivid sense of shame about sin when we tell our (contemporaries), than when we just tell God." Adding that this is the secret to daily revival.
So...I am apparently the only person in the world not to think much of this book. There were just too many places where I thought he was reading a passage wrongly, and that made it too difficult to follow the argument he built from there. I believe that most of his main points were valid, and could be supported from elsewhere in Scripture, but overall I found it pretty weak.
A brief, helpful, fleshing out of 1 John 1: how to walk in fellowship with God and others through confession of sin and receiving the cleansing of Jesus' blood. My parents learned this principle from Jim Wilson, who was heavily influenced by this book. We have found it true and highly practical (now as the 3rd generation).
Grubb, which is fun to call a man, lays out the means of living in fellowship and joy with God and men. The subtitle made me skeptical which shows what contemporary Christian schlock has done to words like "secret" and "victorious", or perhaps just what it has done to me. Grubb found these principles of personal (and communal, I suppose) revival--brokenness, cups running over, confession, conviction, cleansing, testimony, and exhortation--to be effective in his Rwandan ministry in the 50s and 60s. The book is short and therefore easily ingested for non-readers.
Daily attitude of humble brokeness is how to walk with God.
one of the greatest books I have ever read on revival
A good little book about simply seeing Jesus and being changed by Him.
