Last week Lloyd Gill has returned from Komasi in Ghana where he has visited and ministered for Dr Ben and his congregation. Dr Ben and his wife are among the finest of believers and have served the Lord tirelessly in the vineyard given them.

Ten years ago Lloyd was with Dr Ben but due to other circumstances has not been able to go back, even though he was able to visit many other African nations. Yet God has re-opened a door, and we believe great good will flow because of that. The best part is seeing what Christ is doing, and will do through Dr Ben.

How do you maintain a revival once you have one? The question is relevant, because most of the revivals in history have been very short-lived. Not many revivals last more than a year or two; some last only a day or two. Who wants to go through years of prayer to obtain something from the Lord only to have it dissipate?

I will come to the specific issue of vows and covenants in a moment, but first some background is needed. Years ago I spent time seeking the Lord on this important question – because my heart’s desire was to see a revival that would span multiple generations.

Over the last few decades as apostolic concepts have been explored around the world, there has frequently been a tendency towards external things. It's easy to observe what can be seen and praise the latest, greatest things happening.
