Many will obey the Holy Spirit some of the time. But do you obey the Holy Spirit all the time? We enter the highway of holiness through the cleansing cross of Jesus Christ. Once on the highway, we stay on it by always obeying the Holy Spirit through submission and an ever-deepening surrender to Jesus Christ.
If we refuse obedience in even one area, we will either fail to achieve sanctification, or lose our sanctification once we have it or perhaps backslide to one degree or another. Catherine Booth, for example, was not sanctified for years because she refused to preach.
Revival is simply obeying the Holy Spirit and being filled with his presence. Then, we will interact with and react to other people in a holy way that brings them to Jesus.
