  • Quotes from men who knew God that are well worth reading !

    "By the time the average Christian gets his temperature up to

    normal, everybody thinks he has a FEVER!"
    - Watchman Nee

    "You must pray with all your might. That does not mean saying

    your prayers, or sitting gazing about in church or chapel with eyes

    wide open while someone else says them for you. It means fervent,

    effectual, untiring wrestling with God.
    ..This kind of prayer be sure

    the devil and the world and your own indolent, unbelieving nature

    will oppose. They will pour water on this flame."
    - William Booth.

    "A man set on fire is an apostle of his age. And the only one who

    can kindle the spark of light and fire on the hearth where it has

    died down is He who has revealed Himself as the God of fire, our

    Lord Jesus Christ. 'Our God is a consuming fire'...Tell me, is your

    ministry a burning and shining light, or a smoking wick, slowly

    dying out to ashes? ...It is a strange custom that we should

    supply a minister with a glass of water; if only we could supply

    him with a bonfire in the pulpit, a spiritual bonfire. We need the

    dynamic of a flaming ministry that will set the Church on fire."

    - Samuel M. Zwemer (Keswick 1937)

    power of God stretches the sinews of the soul and hardens its

    muscles. To pray is to grow in grace. To tarry in the presence of

    the King leads to new loyalty and devotion on the part of the

    faithful subjects. Christian character grows in the secret-place of

    - Samuel M. Zwemer.

    "At Waterloo, the English troops obeying orders fell on their faces

    for a time and let the hot fire of the French artillery pass over them.

    Then they sprang to their feet and rushed to the thickest of the

    fight and beat back their foes. The Lord wants His people flat on

    their faces, before they attempt to meet the great crises of life."

    - A. T. Pierson.

    "A marble cutter, with chisel and hammer, was changing a stone

    into a statue. A preacher looking on said: 'I wish I could deal such

    changing blows on stony hearts. ' The workman answered: 'Maybe

    you could, if you worked like me, upon your knees.'"
    - A. T. Pierson

    "How often has very earnest prayer for the fullness of the Holy

    Ghost been in vain, because he who sought that unspeakable

    blessing sought it rather for the glory which the possession of it,

    or the reputation for the possession of it, might bring to man,

    for the honor and praise that might be brought to God."

    - G. H. C. Macgregor

    "Our power in drawing others after the Lord mainly rests in our joy

    and communion with Him ourselves."
    - J. G. Bellett

    "Do not be satisfied with as much Christianity as will only ease

    your conscience."
    - J. B. Stoney

    "If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our

    bodies. If they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their

    knees. Let no one GO there UNWARNED and UNPRAYED for."

    - Charles Spurgeon

    "The great battles, the battles that decide our destiny and the

    destiny of generations yet unborn, are not fought on public

    platforms, but in the lonely hours of the night and in moments of

    - Samuel Logan Brengle
