 Quotes From E. A. Johnston


"The Apostle Paul, Luther, Wesley, Whitefield, Knox, Spurgeon, Moody, each shared a common denominator; a fire in their belly. They each were so eaten up with the Gospel and thirsty for Christ and filled with the Holy Ghost---they could not stand idly by while others perished. They saw nothing but eternity, worshiped a Holy God, and served a Risen Christ; living not for earth nor it's gains but living only for heaven and it's rewards. When they preached they linked the Devil with sin and the Cross with salvation. They preached hell and it's fire and Christ and Him crucified. Not one of them feared King, Queen, or Pope; and not one of them sought the compliments of men."'
E. A. Johnston from Realities of Revival

"In 1740 when God moved through New England it was called 'The Great Awakening'. Revival has often been referred to as 'an awakening'. At Gethsemane Jesus faced the 'crisis point' of His earthly ministry and His disciples slept right through it. Today the church is in a 'crisis point' and we are sleeping right through it."
E. A. Johnston from Realities of Revival

"If the Church will not defend His holy Name then the Almighty must. God will either pour out His blessings in revival to defend His holy Name, or He will pour out His wrath upon mankind to avenge His holy Name. It will either be a defending or avenging to show forth His glory and remind mankind He alone is the Sovereign ruler of all.
E. A. Johnston from Call To Revival

God's eyes are continually searching the earth for those rare individuals of 'whom the world was not worthy'. Men like Moses and John the Baptist; Luther and Calvin; Whitefield and Wesley; Studd and Moody. Men who live in a different atmosphere than other mortals; men who have annihilated self with the Cross and whose lives are broken alabaster boxes from which fragrances arise to the heavens from the broken pieces of selflessness, self-sacrifice, and self-crucifixion. God is always on the 'look out' for such men."
E. A . Johnston from The Church in Revival

"There can only be one answer to the question, 'Why has the Church lost her power?'. The answer lies in the reality that the Church has forsaken the Third Person of the Trinity, replacing Him with programs, money, and man-centered methodologies. Our reliance is on self rather than reliance upon the Holy Spirit to empower us to pray, preach, and witness with an enduement from on High."
E. A. Johnston from Call To Revival

"There is a golden thread that weaves it's way through revivals and if this purified thread is broken it has been a bar to revival throughout history; to which I refer is the golden thread of a forgiving heart toward others. When one researches the history of revival it is plainly shown that many revivals began accompanied by a sudden manifestation of God's presence when Christians began to confess their sins of an unforgiving heart to one another."
E. A. Johnston from Realities of Revival

"God will always raise up an Elijah whose prayers impact a sleeping nation. The Church in each generation has had individuals who live upon their knees, whose prayers reach heaven with a holy violence. India had her 'praying Hyde'; China her Hudson Taylor; England her Puritans; Scotland her Covenanters; America her fiery E. M. Bounds; voices which gained the attention of the Throne-room, startled angels, and shook the gates of hell making even the demons quake and tremble with their desperate prayers."
E. A. Johnston from The Church in Revivial

"It was said of the Apostolic Christians that they 'turned the world upside down.'. If that was said of us worldly Christians today, we'd be standing on our heads!"
E. A. Johnston from Call To Revival

"Both Wesley and Whitefield preached the 'law' before 'grace'. In fact, George Whitefield would comment that, 'A sinner must first be brought to Mt. Sinai before he could be brought to Mt. Zion.' Today's evangelism says, 'God loves you! Just believe in Him and you will go to heaven!' Is there no wonder that our congregations are mixed herds of sheep and goats who cannot get along and bite each other's tails."
E. A. Johnston from Call To Revival

"In Great Britain and America today the bane of the Church is self-indulgence, self-preservation, and self-centeredness. The Gospel message is all about 'us' served on a man-centered platter at a sumptuous banquet laden with delicacies. Other generations knew the price of discipleship and the cost of following a crucified Savior. John the Baptist had a platter but his head was upon it; Stephen was baptized with stones as he saw Jesus rise from His throne; Paul finished his ministry not with accolades and applause but with a falling axe. The blood of the martyrs cries out against the self-absorbed Church of this generation."
E. A. Johnston from The Church in Revival

 Re: Quotes From E. A. Johnston

Good quotes. Combined with His Word, this could be the beginning of laying a foundation for what is to come for those who are seeking revival.



That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive ...

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But ye have not so learned Christ;

If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

Neither give place to the devil.

Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

But fornication ['porneia'], and all uncleanness, or covetousness,

let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person,
nor covetous man, who is an idolater,
hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.


Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.





Eph 4 & 5
