Follette was a gifted Bible teacher and author, who had both perspective and spiritual depth in his interpretation of the Word.

He received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1913 while a student at a Bible School in Rochester, New York, and later became a teacher there until the school closed. He also taught for many years at Southern California Bible College.

He passed into his eternal reward in 1966 at the age of 82.

Peter After
       The second incident which I think is one of "these things" spoken of in the opening phrase, is found in John 18:15-19. Here is the sad picture of Peter's failure. He has denied his Lord and is now among His enemies. He has made a fearful botch of t ... read more

Peter Before
       This afternoon I want to talk to you about Jesus. I want you to see Him in action that you might see how He handles certain situations. He is unique in the way He deals with people because He has such wisdom and tact. The story I want to take up is ... read more

Pools of Heshbon - His Reflectors
       THE SACRAMENT OF THE HILLS I have seen beauty my heart cannot sing! How can I tell in words the sacrament Of truth God spreads upon the autumn hills? How strange the silence deep within my breast When I beheld this miracle of grace! ... read more

Prayer and Intercession
      Touch Him when you don't know how to read the Bible, but touch the Word -- touch Him; know His will; know God; know His purpose. Keep up a wonderful fellowship with the Son of God. You can read a lot of books on prayer, some of which are quite materia ... read more

Principles of Faith
       Many Christians approach the realm of the Spirit as if it were a "happy hunting ground" in which they are free to move as they please, regardless of spiritual laws. Then they mistakenly expect to have a well-balanced Christian experience. In our ... read more

Realm of Spirit
      The most real thing in the world is a life in the Spirit; most detaching, because our spirit is released. Keep that spirit open, as a sensitized plate that's exposed continually to God. Then that application of God, flowing and moving over us continually ... read more

      Paul, with regard to his body, spoke of its majesty as a "temple of God", a sacred, wonderful thing. Paul gave it the elevation it needed. "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God?" He will dwell in it, and there will be temple worship. He will dwel ... read more

      The resurrection of Jesus was God's seal and act of approval signifying that His death was sufficient. Jesus never resurrected Himself -- God raised Him from the dead. God the Father was pleased, and satisfied with His victorious life and death. In raisi ... read more

Samson Slays a Lion
       Out of the Strong Up from the vineyards of Timnath A young lion came one day-- The flesh in its strength and beauty-- And roared as he sought his prey. Snarling and growlinq from hunger He moved down life's dusty road, And roa ... read more

      When the devil looked at Calvary, he saw his Waterloo -- his defeat. That's what is the matter with him. The devil is conscious of his defeat. That is why, in the closing of this dispensation, the wroth of the enemy is being felt all the time in more int ... read more

Second Coming
      In regard to the Second Coming, the believer does not need the external signs such as the Jew returning to Israel. Those are for the ones who need to be aroused by great signs -- but the believer is looking for these spiritual signs: 1. When the cup o ... read more

Spiritual Development
      I keep warning young people, and I often say to them, "Listen, this is the only time you will have to make certain decisions, surrenders, and choices in your life. These decisions and choices that you make now govern marvelously things which will happen ... read more

Spiritual Food
      "... Lord, feed me with food convenient for me." (Prov: 30:8b) People are choicy, they want the things they want. They may not need a thrill; they may need a pill! A child can't diagnose his need; the wise parent has to feed him. "... Lord feed me wit ... read more

Spiritual Laws
      I want to help you so that when trouble comes, or when you have difficulties, you will not cast away your faith, but be able to have it stabilized in God, and take of the grace of God, which He has freely given, and does give to tide us along. I want you ... read more

Substance and Evidence
       "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Heb. 11:1). Faith makes the unseen things for which we hope, certain to the soul. Concerning faith we must always remember three things. These are true in any cas ... read more

      Suffering brings us into the fellowship of the Trinity: 1. Father -- Disciplines us as sons, and we recognize Him as our heavenly Father. Discipline entails or spells suffering, which is necessary and needed; otherwise we are bastards. 2. Son --Jes ... read more

      The reason why Paul taught as earnestly as he did, was because his great field was that of a teacher. He was a missionary -- that was the external manifestation of the work which he did, but underneath all of that, there was the most profound urge and dri ... read more

      "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Prov. 22:6) I have learned a lot of things you parents don't know. Your proximity hinders you. Does it say 'tell' a child what he should do, and when he is o ... read more

Testing and Proving
      I always deal with God. I never deal with the devil. We say: "I defy the devil!" It takes the LORD to rebuke him! He is loose, but God is back of him. I get right behind Jesus; He is my Elder Brother. He will take me through, and He is my glorious High ... read more

The Camels Are Coming
       The spiritual lesson I wish to bring to you from this story is based upon a dramatic and picturesque incident in the life of Rebekah; namely, her dealing with the camels. Therefore I will not go into detail with the beautiful analogy of spiritual trut ... read more

The Four Questions of God Part One - Two Questions from the Old Testament

The Four Questions of God Part Three - Two Questions from the New Testament

The Four Questions of God Part Two - Two Questions from the New Testament
       Now I want to talk about two other questions which are asked, and both of them are asked when the Lord knows exactly all about it, and yet, He goes and asks it. As we found yesterday, there is a reason why He should do that. Not for His benefit; it ... read more

The Purpose of Adam's Test
       In 1Peter 2:2 we find a very suggestive statement or command, "As new born babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby." Some people seem to think it reads, "That ye may be happy thereby," or "That ye may be refreshed." O ... read more

The Spiritual Purpose and It's Attainment
       I like to know what I am doing and why. I must have design or purpose in what I do. This I have in the simplest matters of daily living. Some I know are not constructed so, and life to such is generally a series of accidents or unrelated circumstances ... read more

The Value of His Dealings
       "For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren" Rom 8:29. Our being predestinated is related to the foreknowledge of God. He chose us because ... read more

Trouble -- A Servant
       Did you ever test yourself as to how you react to trouble or tragedy? In life's school we often find that God uses trouble or misfortune to prove our faith or to test our character. Trouble has a way of stalking down the road and meeting us so many t ... read more

      I have given out plenty of Truth, and yet some say, "Oh, give us more." What have you done with what I have already given? You enjoy the Truth, but sometimes there is a fascination in its revelation that bewitches you, and you want to know more about th ... read more

Will of God
      The highest expression of our spiritual life is, in the last analysis, back again to God. That is what we were made for. In the pattern and design for our living, God said He made us in His OWN IMAGE and LIKENESS. We were created for His glory and His ple ... read more
