The answer is "Yes!" He gave opportunity to Noah's family, Lot's family, and the believers in Jericho and Nineveh to repent and be spared. Why wouldn't

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that
all should come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9
Revival must come through God's Holy Spirit. But His people must really want it.
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14

- Shifting of theological training from seminaries to local churches
- Greater interaction of churches with their communities
- Further waning of denominational influence
