Anointing in Preaching – Duncan Campbell

Anointing in Preaching – Duncan Campbell

Preaching truth without the anointing of the Holy Ghost is helping the devil to damn souls. There’s nothing on earth today so deadening as preaching without heaven’s anointing. Refrain from preaching unless you know that the dew of heaven is on your soul.

The Spirit – Richard Sibbes

The Spirit – Richard Sibbes

The Spirit runs through it all. It is by the Spirit of the Lord that we behold. It is the Spirit of the Lord that takes away the veil. It is by the Spirit of the Lord that we are changed from glory to glory (see 2 Corinthians 3:16-18).

Do you live in God’s power?  – Ian Thomas

Do you live in God’s power? – Ian Thomas

There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is.

Indwelling Holy Spirit – Henri Nouwen

Indwelling Holy Spirit – Henri Nouwen

Without Pentecost the Christ-event—the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus—remains imprisoned in history as something to remember, think about and reflect on. The Spirit of Jesus comes to dwell within us, so that we can become living Christs [Christians] here and now.

Do we have Holy Spirit power? – Leonard Ravenhill

Do we have Holy Spirit power? – Leonard Ravenhill

But have we Holy Spirit power—power that restricts the devil’s power, pulls down strongholds and obtains promises? Daring delinquents will be damned if they are not delivered from the devil’s dominion. What has hell to fear other than a God-anointed, prayer-powered church?

A demonstration of God – Duncan Campbell

A demonstration of God – Duncan Campbell

The average man is not going to be impressed by our publicity, our posters or our programs, but let there be a demonstration of the supernatural in the realm of religion, and at once man is arrested.

The Gift of Pentecost – Samuel Chadwick

The Gift of Pentecost – Samuel Chadwick

I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is by fire that a holy passion is kindled in the soul whereby we live the life of God. The soul’s safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power.

Do you believe in the Holy Spirit? – Charles Spurgeon

Do you believe in the Holy Spirit? – Charles Spurgeon

My brethren, do you believe in the Holy Ghost?… Have we such a reliance upon the Holy Ghost? Do we believe that, at this moment, He can clothe us with power, even as He did the apostles at Pentecost? Do we believe that, under our preaching, by His energy a thousand might be born in a day?

Blasts from Heaven – Smith Wigglesworth

Blasts from Heaven – Smith Wigglesworth

Pentecost came with the sound of a mighty rushing wind, a violent blast from heaven! Heaven has not exhausted its blasts, but our danger is we are getting frightened of them.
