 Email Encouragements!

I am going to post some encouraging emails I have gotten ove the past while, There has been probably literally up to 1000 of these so I will just post a few here to encourage everyone that is part of this ministry project to be encouraged and know the Lord is working in many peoples hearts.

I actually had 100's of testimonies and encouraging emails saved since the beginning of SermonIndex but I lost it when one of the computers drives acted up. :-(

Subject : Leonard Ravenhill

| | | Inbox



Greetings in the name of Jesus:

Please allow me to share my heart. I apologize if it is not composed perfectly, but I do not have time to share like I desire because I am at work. I do not have internet access at the home.

I want to first thank you for the encouragement that your ministry has been to my walk with the Lord. There is a desperate need in our day for the remnant people of God, those who are longing for reformation and revival, to be feed and encouraged. I feel alone at times and it is a great encouragement for me to listen to Leonard Ravenhill or Tozer during these times. I do not always have the time to listen to the others, but I am sure they could be an encouragement as well.

Ravenhill just preaches it straight. I have my ups in downs in seeking for a personal revival in my own life. Brokenness, loneliness, weeping, confessing, and repenting wears me out. I realize that my strength is in the Lord so do not get me wrong. I need to pray through. I cannot explain at times, but who can explain the groaning of the Spirit of God. Anyways, it seems that Ravenhill has the gift to encourage Christians to allow the Lord to bring them to the end of themselves (absolute surrender). We know that the Lord knows our hearts and there is nothing hidden from His sight. I have gone down many of times to die or be really crucified with Christ and to be filled with all the fullness of God, but have come up disappointed. I realize that it is by grace through faith and not of works (I have read about Harry Ironside). I also realize that God is ready and willing, but I am the one who is holding back. Maybe

Brothers and sisters please keep pressing on to perfection, praying without ceasing, encouraging one another, and fighting the good fight of faith.

Thank you again for your ministry.

May He alone be glorified in everything we do,

Kenneth

Can only nod in agreement

Thanks Kenneth,

Hey Greg,

It was our pleasure - my only regret is that we didn't have a faster connection. You are a blessing to me personally. As a pastor, I give out again and again and I need to be replenished through the preaching of divine truths. I love to download Ravenhill, Reidhead, etc. and stir my heart. Again, thanks and don't be a stranger....

pryor, ok

Greg,
Just wanted to email you and say a few things. Now, right off the bat, i
want you to understand that in no way am I praising you or any sort of that
kind of thing. ALL of the praise and thanksgiving i have in my heart goes
directly to God.
So, if you would please, allow me to ramble for a few minutes...

I first found your site while searching the web for Tozer
sermons...something i had grown frustrated with because they were buried so
deep and I couldn't seem to get my hands on anything, except a few tapes
here and there...but I knew they had to be out there. So, I searched for
them one more time and at first it was the same old story...until i found a
link to your site...'hmmm...never noticed that before..." 'click'...I
couldn't believe my eyes...this happened pretty soon right after you
launched the site. I ate it up. With praises in my heart, I ate it up. i
listened to as much Tozer as I could. I drank it in like water...but you
know how it is. You find some that really speak loud and clear to your
heart's need and you sit on those for a long while.
That is how I heard of Vance Havner. I saw his name, along with some
others i had never heard of, and whenever brothers like Tozer mention names
of men or women or books...i start digging. I make lists of names and books
and keep them for future refernce either to purchase or listen to.
One day I clicked on 'Leonard Ravenhill' by 'coincidence'. It was all
over then. Just as God had used 'The Pursuit of God' to lay me open so many
years ago (and still continues to do so as I meditate and marinate in the
truth of that little book) God had already prepped me to do the same with
Leonard Ravenhill. Time would fail me to tell you all that God has done in
me, not by Ravenhill or Havner or Booth, or Tozer, but by the effective
working of HIS power in me using these men of God.
I am working on a few little booklets/pamphlets on the minor prophets
that were the primer for the pump...things that the Lord has been showing me
about how He dealt with His own people then, How He is dealing with His own
people now (me, personally) and how is dealing with His people as a whole
(the church).
I am a very good friend of Craig Sayler's. And he shares with me what is
going on behind the screen, as he is able to help you out from time to time
with server stuff, etc. What a blessing.
I had an idea last year, as i was steeping in the richness of what is on
this site and how badly it needs to be heard by so many who are 'asleep in
the Light' today in the church. I want to download and burn cases of audio
and dvd versions of so many messages and hand them out to every believer
that i know. I am going to start with Havner's "Getting used to the Dark"
and Tozer's "Where is the Lord God of Elijah", along with a few of Tozer's
"What it is to accept Christ". Those that return hungering for more, a
couple more Tozers and then slip in a Ravenhill occasionally...
but we both know that it's not hearing these sermons that will change
anyone...It's prayer. Pray, pray, pray. God must do it. Unless the Lord
builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. When we pray in secret to
our father who is in secret and He sees in secret, He will reward us openly.
The Lord has been telling me over and over again to pour water on it,
again and again, just like Elijah on top of Mt. Carmel. We need to go out of
our way (into the secret place) to let everyone know that we're not trying
to help God in any way. We are actually going out of the way to pour water
on what we are asking, longing, desiring, crying out for God to do in our
time.
More to say, but i have the distinct priveledge of going to the dentist
now. Oh, Joy!
God draw you closer to Himself, Greg. just as oswald Chambers said in
'My utmost for His highest last week..."If you have heard Jesus voice on the
billows, let your consistency go to the wind, let your convictions go the
wind, but maintain your relationship to Him." Let us never forget that His
name is Jealous. He wants to spend time with us and us with Him.

Talk to you again soon.

Your Brother-In-Arms,
Josh Olson

Gordon & Mike, the Lord bless you for this precious site. I hope you don't mind but we have put a link on our own site to yours. I believe many should hear about this site. I will certainly be recommending it to all my colleagues and friends.

could you also let me know what I can do if I wanted to use a quote or part of a sermon from your site on our own website.

Yours in His service
Scott Cameron

hello to you all.
i thank God for what He is doing in you all through this ministry. this site has
brought me closer to the true God, Jesus, Christ.

i was wondering if the message of david ravenhill cleans up the temple, is on
video only is there any way of getting this message on mp3? this message is for
the church that i currently attend. God is starting to pull our church through a
great healing. it is awesome. i pray that all the churches would go through
this and God would prepare His bride.

this january i have been put at a cross road. the question i've asked God what
do you want me to do. He has told me to know Him more. so i filled out an
application to mount zion school of ministry, and i wait. also i ask for prayer
that God would put this in order. i will continue to pray for you and your
ministry.
amen
adelaide noel

Dear brother in Christ,

Thank you for your article. This is of the Holy Spirit, God is speaking of the urgency of the times to a sleeping and carnal church. l strongly agree with everything be bold and courageous to speak on for The Lord my brother. The Lord impressed me to send a similar cry for Joel's Assembly to thousands of pastors, l got about only 5 response. Please visit our website http://cpmi777.org/ to read about the cry of The Lord to this nation. You recommend it to others if The Lord leads you. It is a mnessage from His heart that l feel everyone needs to hear and warned before it is too late.
l would also like to know how l can send articles like this to be posted and also how to put my sermon tapes on your site. l have written twice to enquire of the procedure but l never got any response.
Let us continue to cry out to God to do whatever it takes to turn this nation back to Him we have hurt Him too much , worst than any other generation or nation. Now the jugment is at our door and surprisingly we are still sleeping!
May the power of The Spirti continue to be upon you

Servant of God
Evangelist Godfried Baning

I can always tell those who HAVE really spent intimate time with Him. It shows! Even the way they speak of Him is intimate. Something deep and meaningful has happened between them. Not only do they see Him in "awe" but in "adoration" as well. There has been two way communication going on- not just one way communication. :-) It is indeed a relationship!

Thanks for sharing.

In Him, Chanin
