Presumably, Kilpatrick’s “fresh mantle” is related to other revival terms such as a “fresh visitation of the Spirit” and a “fresh anointing.” If the believer is indwelt by Christ (Romans:8:10,11; 2 Corinthians:13:5; Colossians:1:27; etc.) and by the Holy Spirit (John:14:17; Romans:8:9; 1 Corinthians:3:16; etc.), and has an abiding anointment of the Spirit (1 John:2:27), and if Christ is always in our midst when we meet, as He promised, then what could be the meaning of a “fresh visitation of the Spirit” or a “fresh anointing”? Leaders of this current revival habitually invite the Holy Spirit to be present and to work. But He is indwelling us and He is present and at work among us when we meet. So the idea of “revival” as some special anointing or visitation of the Holy Spirit is not biblical and could lead into error, as indeed it has done in the charismatic movement.
