The signs that a believer in Christ is experiencing spiritual decay and therefore needs revival.
CHARACTERISTICS OF SPIRITUAL DECAY IN A BELIEVER
1. A MECHANICAL SPIRITUAL LIFE: A situation where one is moved with flesh is an act of a mechanical spiritual life. One may still be engaged in activities but all will be in human strength. Judges 16:20
“And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.”
2. UNPROFITABLE, UNINTERESTING QUIET TIME: Engaging in activities that are not profitable instead of observing quiet time. 1 Samuel 28:6
“And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.”
3. CARNALITY IN PERSONAL LIFESTYLE: 2 Timothy 4:10
“For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.”
