  • Do you want revival ? This is what revival is !

    "Defend the Bible? I would just as soon defend a lion. Just turn the

    Bible loose. It will defend itself."
    - Charles Spurgeon

    "Inner purity results in outer power." -

    "With complete consecration comes perfect peace." - Watchman Nee

    "Many have an idyllic and sweet idea of revival. And they pray to

    this end. But our prayer should be to expose sin and lies, first in

    our own hearts and then in the churches. To pray for a great

    conviction of sin and that man would crumble and surrender at the

    terrifying presence of a Holy God. Then they would find the sweet,

    rapturous joy of being at peace with their God!... Do you still want

    revival? We must pray and PREACH to this end. If we are silent,

    or silenced, many in the churches will perish."
    - Jeri Woods.

    "To the church, a revival means humiliation, a bitter knowledge of

    unworthiness and an open and humiliating confession of sin on

    the part of her ministers and people. It is not the easy and glorious

    thing many think it to be, who imagine it fills pews and reinstates

    the church in power and authority.... It comes to scorch before it

    heals; it comes to condemn ministers and people for their unfaithful

    witness, for their selfish living, for their neglect of the cross, and

    to call them to daily renunciation, to an evangelical poverty and to

    a deep and daily consecration....Because it says nothing to them

    of power such as they have learned to love, or of ease, or of

    success; it accuses them of sin, it tells them they are dead, it

    calls them to awake, to renounce the world and to follow Christ."

    - James Burns in his 1909 book 'Revival, Their Laws and Leaders'.

    "It's not the parts of the Bible I don't know that worries's

    the parts that I do."
    - Mark Twain

    "Tell me what you do with your time and money and I will tell you

    where your heart is." - Xavier
