The present leaders are too comfortably situated as a rule to desire innovation that might require sacrifice on their part. And God's fire only falls on sacrifice. An empty altar receives no fire!- Frank BartlemanWe cannot organize revival, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from Heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again.- G. Campbell MorganIf revival is being withheld from us it is because some idol remains still enthroned; because we still insist in placing our reliance in human schemes; because we still refuse to face the unchangeable truth that, 'It is not by might, but by My Spirit.'- Jonathan GoforthI 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!'- Leonard Ravenhill

Amen Brother GregLet no one say that a man has come, but that the Love of God, in the Blood of Calvary, has come and is shed abroad ...in Scotland. And that the sons of Abraham worship God as Isaac worshiped. (Romans 5:5; Gen. 22; Gal. 3:7, 29; Phil. 3:10}
