"Oh, the lives eternally wrecked by the yellow gospels of the
day-the bloodless theories of unregenerate men that send their
hearers to their doom instead of stopping them on their downward
road!" - H. A. Ironside

"And what is wrong with the old method of scaring the ungodly with
a sermon on hell?" - Vance Havner

"There is a lot of soft, sentimental talk about Him today that brings
no conviction. When Isaiah saw the Lord, he did not feel comfortable!
Neither did Habakkuk nor Daniel nor Paul nor John. We want a
picture of Him today that does not disturb us, that smiles at sin,
and winks at iniquity. I remember a man who told me he wanted to
hear no hell-fire sermons but rather about the meek and lowly Jesus.
Yet the poor man did not seem to realize that the meek and lowly
Jesus said more about hell than is reported from the lips of anyone
else in the Bible! We need a true and complete vision of God in
His holiness and Christ in His glory that will bring us to repentance."
-Vance Havner.

"Obedience is the crown and honour of all virtue."
-Martin Luther

"Spiritual maturity is reached when obedience [to God and His
word] becomes a joy." - Jesse Yoder

"In Acts the apostles prayed for 10 days then preached for 10 min-

"It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the
hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher."

"You may pay for the book in which the Gospel is contained; for the
Church or chapel in which it is preached, for the minister who
preaches it to you ... but, the Gospel itself is as free as the light
that shines, as the rain and dew which fall from above; as the air
which you inhale and as every other blessing of God"
-John Bate

"This life is a dressing room for eternity - THAT'S ALL IT IS!"
-Leonard Ravenhill

"If the service of God is worth anything, it is worth everything. We
shall find our best reward in the Lord´s work if we do it with
determined diligence. Our labor is not in vain in the Lord, and we
know it."
- Charles H. Spurgeon

"The evangelist who preaches for eternity is never great on numbers.
He is not apt to count hundreds of converts where there is no
restitution, no confession, and no glad cry which proclaims, 'The
lost is found, the dead is made alive again!'"

the Christian Church today is true preaching; and as it is the
greatest and most urgent need in the Church, it is obviously the
greatest need of the world also."

"Are you living for the things you are praying for?" - Austin Phelps

"A prayerless man is proud and independent, and any church that
neglects corporate prayer is sadly no better. Only God's humble
and needy children take the time to pray. Everyone else is just
going through the motions and naively trusting in their own
strength!" -David Smithers

"We need a baptism of clear seeing. We desperately need seers
who can see through the mist--Christian leaders with prophetic
vision. Unless they come soon it will be too late for this generation.
And if they do come we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the
name of our worldly orthodoxy." -A. W. Tozer

"The time factor in prayer is very important. In the exercise of
prayer God is not tied to our clocks. Neither is He at the other end
of the phone to receive and answer our two-minute calls. It takes
time to know the mind of God, to shut out the material things of
earth and to be wholly abandoned." -Hugh C. C. McCullough

"He can do all things who prays well. All soul-winners have
conquered on their knees. Wherever the secret of prevailing prayer
is found, something supernatural will come to pass." - G. F. Oliver

"No system of doctrine, preaching and worship which fails to
develop prayer, faith, spiritual labor, and success in converting
souls from sin, can long have the face to claim to be the religion of
Jesus Christ!" -William W. Patton

"The true man of God is heartsick, grieved at the worldliness of the
Church... grieved at the toleration of sin in the Church, grieved at
the prayerlessness in the Church. He is disturbed that the
corporate prayer of the Church no longer pulls down the
strongholds of the devil." - Leonard Ravenhill

"There are different kinds of fire; there is false fire. No one knows
this better than we do, but we are not such fools as to refuse good
bank notes because there are false ones in circulation; and
although we see here and there manifestations of what appears to
us to be nothing more than mere earthly fire, we nonetheless prize
and value, and seek for the genuine fire which comes from the altar
of the Lord." - William Booth

"We must continue in prayer if we are to get an outpouring of the
Spirit. Christ says there are some things we shall not get, unless
we pray and fast, yes, "prayer and fasting." We must control the
flesh and abstain from whatever hinders direct fellowship with God."
- Andrew Bonar

"The history of missions is the history of answered prayer. From
Pentecost to the Haystack meeting in New England and from the
days when Robert Morrison landed in China to the martyrdom of
John and Betty Stam, prayer has been the source of power and
the secret of spiritual triumph." - Samuel Zwemer

"This much is sure in all churches, forgetting party labels; the
smallest meeting numerically is the prayer-meeting. If weak in
prayer we are weak everywhere." - Leonard Ravenhill

"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on
of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is
that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it
simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain
precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get
nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop
using it as a substitute for obedience." - A. W. Tozer

"Don't plan without God. God seems to have a delightful way of
upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken Him
into account." - Oswald Chambers

"I know men, and I tell you that Jesus is not a man. The religion of
Christ is a mystery which subsists by its own force, and proceeds
from a mind which is not a human mind. We find in it a marked
individuality, which originated a train of words and actions unknown
before. Jesus is not a philosopher, for His proofs are miracles, and
from the first His disciples adored Him. Alexander, Caesar,
Charlemagne and myself founded empires; but on what foundation
did we rest the creatures of our genius? Upon force. But Jesus
Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of
men would die for Him. I die before my time, and my body will be
given back to the earth to become food for worms. Such is the fate
of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss
between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ, which
is proclaimed, loved, adored, and is still existing over the whole
earth!" Then, turning to Gen. Bertrand, the emperor added: "If you
do not perceive that Jesus Christ is God, I did wrong in appointing
you a general." - Napoleon Bonaparte

"Prayer can do anything that God can do."
- E.M. Bounds

"Revival is a renewed conviction of sin and repentance, followed by
an intense desire to live in obedience to God. It is giving up one's
will to God in deep humility." - Charles Finney

"What I have seen in the past 10 years of traveling - performing at a
church one day and a casino the next - is that a lot of people in the
church want to be entertained, and people in casinos want to be
ministered to. That's hard to understand, but I see a hunger in the
world that I don't see in the church." - Ricky Shaggs (musician)

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For
whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose
his life for my sake shall find it."
-- Matthew 16:24,25 (KJV)

"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning
the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope
means hoping when everything seems hopeless."

you up to its level." - David MacDonald

"Revival and change are almost synonymous terms and both
clearly cut across traditionalism. There is no way true revival can
occur without major changes disrupting and reordering the life of
the Church... God is no traditionalist. While God is orderly, He is
always fresh and vital. If a church can run according to forms and
traditions of men, it will run without the presence and power of God...
Is it any wonder the love of tradition is an enemy to revival? Revival
and new life go hand in hand "
- Richard Owen Roberts

"I believe there is one thing for which God is very angry with our
land, and for which His Holy Spirit is so little among us, and that
is the neglect of united prayer; the appointed means of bringing
down the Holy Spirit." - Brownlow North

"From the day of Pentecost, there has been not one great spiritual
awakening in any land which has not begun in a union of prayer,
though only among two or three. And no such outward, upward
movement has continued after such prayer meetings have
- A. T. Pierson

"There is no question that God works, often powerfully, in the old
structures. But it is inevitable that those very structures put
serious limitations on His working. It is all too easy for the ground
gained to be lost, for the situation to revert, and for the whole
process to need repeating within a short space of time. Take the
1950, Lewis Awakening. Though confined to certain Presbyterian
churches in the Outer Hebrides, this was a powerful movement of
the Spirit that deeply affected those communities at the time.
Many found faith in Christ, and some of these are now in full-time
service. But the fact remains that in less than a decade you could
visit those very churches where God had worked so powerfully and
never suspect that they had ever tasted revival. Without a change
of structure it is virtually Impossible to conserve the fruits of revival."
- Arthur Wallis

"If our GOAL is Revival, we will be quite unbalanced when it comes.
If our goal is God, we will be able to walk with Him calmly and
steadfastly through years of waiting and through the joys and
victories of a season of refreshing. Christ crucified and risen is not
only the Door, and the Way, but the End also. It is our personal
relationship to Him which counts more than anything else. Oh, the
need for men and women who know their God! The Church of
Christ will only arise militant, triumphant, an 'exceeding great
army', when individuals get rightly related to God."
- Nancy B. Morris

"Perhaps the greatest barrier to revival on a large scale is the fact
that we are too interested in a great display. We want an
exhibition; God is looking for a man who will throw himself entirely
on God. Whenever self-effort, self-glory, self-seeking or self-
promotion enters into the work of revival, then God leaves us to
- Ted S. Rendall

"The disappearance of the 'prayer meeting' from the life of many
churches is something which occasions widespread regret, even
among many who would not normally attend. Indeed, the prayer
meeting in which the laity participated freely is a legacy from the
1859 (Ulster) Revival...These prayer meetings were not in many
cases in existence before the revival set in. The very establishment
of them in the first instance, was an evidence that it was spring-
time again in the Church of Christ, and the restoration of them
today would be for her reviving once more." - John T. Carson

"I am tired of hearing the words 'I can't'. Jeremiah said, 'I am a
child'; but the Lord didn't pat him on the back and say, Jeremiah,
that is very good, I like that in you; your humility is beautiful.' Oh
no! God didn't want any such mock humility. He reproved and
rebuked it. I do not like the humility that is too humble to do as it
is bid. When my children are too humble to do as they are bid, I
pretty soon find a way to make them. I say, 'Go and do it!' The
Lord wants us to 'go and do it'." - Catherine Booth

"All practical power over sin and over men depends on maintaining
closet communion. Those who abide in the secret place with God
show themselves mighty to conquer evil, and strong to work and
to war for God. They are seers who read His secrets; they know
His will; they are the meek whom He guides in judgment and
teaches His way. They are His prophets who speak for Him to
others, and even forecast things to come. They watch the signs
of the times and discern His tokens and read His signals."

"By the time the average Christian gets his temperature up to
normal, everybody thinks he has a FEVER!" - Watchman Nee

"You must pray with all your might. That does not mean saying
your prayers, or sitting gazing about in church or chapel with eyes
wide open while someone else says them for you. It means fervent,
effectual, untiring wrestling with God...This kind of prayer be sure
the devil and the world and your own indolent, unbelieving nature
will oppose. They will pour water on this flame." - William Booth.

"A man set on fire is an apostle of his age. And the only one who
can kindle the spark of light and fire on the hearth where it has
died down is He who has revealed Himself as the God of fire, our
Lord Jesus Christ. 'Our God is a consuming fire'...Tell me, is your
ministry a burning and shining light, or a smoking wick, slowly
dying out to ashes? ...It is a strange custom that we should
supply a minister with a glass of water; if only we could supply
him with a bonfire in the pulpit, a spiritual bonfire. We need the
dynamic of a flaming ministry that will set the Church on fire."
- Samuel M. Zwemer (Keswick 1937)

"Prayer is self-discipline. The effort to realize the presence and
power of God stretches the sinews of the soul and hardens its
muscles. To pray is to grow in grace. To tarry in the presence of
the King leads to new loyalty and devotion on the part of the
faithful subjects. Christian character grows in the secret-place of
prayer." - Samuel M. Zwemer.

"At Waterloo, the English troops obeying orders fell on their faces
for a time and let the hot fire of the French artillery pass over them.
Then they sprang to their feet and rushed to the thickest of the
fight and beat back their foes. The Lord wants His people flat on
their faces, before they attempt to meet the great crises of life."
- A. T. Pierson.

"A marble cutter, with chisel and hammer, was changing a stone
into a statue. A preacher looking on said: 'I wish I could deal such
changing blows on stony hearts. ' The workman answered: 'Maybe
you could, if you worked like me, upon your knees.'" - A. T. Pierson

"How often has very earnest prayer for the fullness of the Holy
Ghost been in vain, because he who sought that unspeakable
blessing sought it rather for the glory which the possession of it,
or the reputation for the possession of it, might bring to man, than
for the honor and praise that might be brought to God."

"Our power in drawing others after the Lord mainly rests in our joy
and communion with Him ourselves." - J. G. Bellett

"Do not be satisfied with as much Christianity as will only ease

"I am not permitted to let my love be so merciful as to tolerate and
endure false doctrine. When faith and doctrine are concerned and
endangered, neither love nor patience are in order.... when these
are concerned, neither toleration nor mercy are in order, but only
anger, dispute, and destruction -- to be sure, only with the Word
of God as our weapon." - Martin Luther.

"A chorus of ecumenical voices keep harping the unity tune. What
they are saying is, "Christians of all doctrinal shades and beliefs
must come together in one visible organization, regardless... Unite,
unite!" Such teaching is false, reckless and dangerous. Truth alone
must determine our alignments. Truth comes before unity. Unity
without truth is hazardous. Our Lord's prayer in John 17 must be
read in its full context. Look at verse 17: "Sanctify them through
thy truth; thy word is truth." Only those sanctified through the
Word can be one in Christ. To teach otherwise is to betray the
Gospel." - Charles H. Spurgeon.

"God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon
eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending
His gospel out in the world. God is looking for broken men who
have judged themselves in the light of the cross of Christ. When
He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the
end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God."

pressure to bear, but we have to make the choice...All day long
the choice will be before us in a thousand ways." - Roy Hession.

"Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,

Spirit and washed in the blood. A great deal that passes for the
deeper life is nothing more or less than basic Christianity. There is
nothing deeper about it, and it is where we should have been from
the start...
What we need is what the old Methodists called a sound
conversion. There is a difference between conversion and a sound
conversion. People who have never been soundly converted do not
have the Spirit to enlighten them. When they read the Sermon on
the Mount or the teaching passages of the epistles that tell them
how to live or the doctrinal passages that tell how they can live,
they are unaffected. The Spirit who wrote them is not witnessing
in their hearts because they have not been born of the Spirit. That
often happens." - A W Tozer.
