 Re: Can you imagine...

"The Church used to be a lifeboat
rescuing the perishing.
Now she is a cruise ship
recruiting the promising. " Ravenhill

 Ravenhill Quotes

All time favorite:

"If you are going to get mature in God all the dwarfs around you will criticize and sneer at you and say 'Your trying to be holier than the rest of us, ah?"

Reminds me of a Mark Twain quote:

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

I share the view of E.M. Bounds that it takes God twenty years to make a preacher.

 Re:

“Finney never made an altar call within the first twenty eight nights of preaching. Most of our evangelists don’t have twenty eight sermons. Twenty eight nights in a row and he never made an altar call. He didn’t preach the love of God. He didn’t say “you’re a sinner, God loves you.” He said “God is angry with the wicked every day” (Ps 7:11) which the Word of God says. He didn’t preach grace, he preached Law. He didn’t preach love, he preached judgment. He didn’t preach heaven, he preached hell. He didn’t say “you’re a wonderful person” he said “you’re a rebel”. But he got results. 64% of D. L. Moodys converts backslid, 72% of the converts Finney got stood because he knew how to attach the human will, not just the emotions.” Leonard Ravenhill

 Re:

"We talk Apostolic doctrine
but lack Apostolic deeds.
We claim Apostolic faith
but lack Apostolic fruit.
Some trumpet Apostolic power
but lack Apostolic poverty.
Some claim Apostolic enduement
but lack Apostolic accomplishment.
We may have Apostolic vocabularies.
Do we have Apostolic victories?
Many claim Apostolic succession.
Few, if any, dare claim Apostolic success!"
-Leonard Ravenhill

 Re:

I read of the revivals of the past, great sweeping revivals where thousands of men were swept into the Kingdom of God. I read about Charles G. Finney winning his thousands and his hundreds of thousands of souls to Christ. Then I picked up a book and read the messages of Charles G. Finney and the message of Jonathan Edwards on 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,' and I said, 'No wonder men trembled; no wonder they fell in the altars and cried out in repentance and sobbed their way to the throne of grace!'
