 John Flavel Quotes...


"Oh sirs, deal with sin as sin, and speak of heaven and hell as they are, and not as if you were in jest."
JOHN FLAVEL

[b]"Oh, that I might live to see that day when professors shall not walk in vain show; when they shall please themselves no more with a name to live, being spiritually dead; when they shall no more (as many of them now are) be a company of frothy, vain, and unserious persons, but the majestic beams of holiness shining from their heavenly and serious conversation shall awe the world, and command reverence from all who are about them; when they shall warm the hearts of those who come nigh them, so that men shall say, 'God is truly in these men!'"[/b]
JOHN FLAVEL

"Oh, study your hearts, watch your hearts, keep your hearts! Away with empty names and vain shows; away with unprofitable discourse and bold censures of others. Turn in upon yourselves, get into your closets, and now resolve to dwell there. You have been strangers to this work too long; you have kept other vineyards too long; you have trifled about the borders of religion too long. Will you now resolve to look better to your hearts? Will you hate and come out of the crowds of business and clamors of the world and retire yourselves more than you have done? Oh, that this day you would resolve upon it!"
JOHN FLAVEL

"Tell me, you vain professor, when did you shed a tear for the deadness, hardness, unbelief, or earthliness of your heart? Do you think that such an easy religion can save you? If so, we may invert Christ's words and say, 'Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to life, and may there be that go in there.'"
JOHN FLAVEL

 Re:

John Flavel (1627 - 1691), divine, born at Bromsgrove, studied at Oxford, was a Presbyterian, and was settled at Dartmouth, but ejected from his living in 1662, continuing, however, to preach there secretly. He was a voluminous and popular author. Among his works are Husbandry Spiritualised and Navigation Spiritualised, titles which suggest some of his characteristics as an expositor.

yes brother some of this saint's words are very piercing to the soul. Oh these men that [b]knew[/b] God! One verse I have been praying through is: Judges 2:10 "...which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel." We don't know God and the things above (divine things) as we should and we don't know the works of God (the supernatural works) God working amonst men, Revival!

 Re: How Desirable

[b]Consider how desirable it is for a Christian to

overcome his evil propensities, how much more

present happiness it affords, how much better it

is in every respect to mortify and subdue unholy

feelings than to give way to them. When upon your

death bed you come calmly to review your life, how

comfortable will it be to reflect on the conquests

which you have made over the depraved feelings of

your heart? It was a memorable saying of

Valentinian the emperor when he was about to die

"Amongst all my conquests there is but one that

now comforts me" being asked what that was he

answered "I have overcome my worst enemy, my own

sinful heart".

-John Flavel [/b]
