The question arises, "If these are the end times, would God send a revival when He has already predicted apostasy and spiritual decline?"

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 He give an opportunity, especially to the young people of our generation who have never really understood the Gospel?

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

July 11, 2017 - In response to a reader's question about why many people are drifting away from religion, Billy Graham said that this trend reminds him of a Bible prophecy about the "Last Days."

Graham and his evangelist children (Franklin Graham and Anne Graham Lotz) join Greg Laurie and many others who are hoping for a great spiritual awakening.

'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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.' (2nd Chronicles 7:14)
