COMPONENTS OF REVIVAL FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS (NIV text quoted exactly as it appears in the text, God-willing)
Based on a review of the Book of Acts, the following were forerunners of the power and revival coming to the Early Church and Nation of Israel (what were the people doing as a precursor to the revival that they experienced in Acts chapters 2-4)
1) Devoted themselves to:
        a) The apostles teaching
        b) Fellowship
        c) Breaking of bread
        d) Prayer
2) Openly taught and proclaimed God’s Word in Jesus name
3) Openly confessed sin and repented of it
4) Publicly burned their idols
5) Gave their attention to prayer and the ministry of the Word
6) Constantly gathered together in one place to pray
7) All believers were together and had everything in common
8) No one claimed any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had
9) Sold their possessions and goods and gave to anyone in need
10) Those people who owned land or houses sold them and the money was distributed to anyone who had need
11) The believers met together daily in the temple courts
