  • What is true Pentecostal ?

    "The very truths that gave birth to the Pentecostal movement are

    today generally rejected as too strong." - Frank Bartleman

    "Do the Pentecostals look back with shame as they remember

    when they dwelt across the theological tracks, but with the glory

    of the Lord in their midst? When they had a normal church life,

    which meant nights of prayers, followed by signs and wonders,

    and diverse miracles, and genuine gifts of the Holy Ghost? When

    they were not clock watchers, and their meetings lasted for hours,

    saturated with holy power? Have we no tears for these memories,

    or shame that our children know nothing of such power?"

    - Leonard Ravenhill

    "This Pentecostal movement is something which God has started

    at high speed, but the faster we go the greater the need of

    holiness... May God give us holiness with our Pentecost, for we

    surely need it. No revival can continue with the blessing of God

    upon it that does not have a high standard of holiness."

    - Donald Gee

    "The GREATEST HINDRANCES to the evangelization of the world

    are those within the Church."
    - John R. Mott

    "The self-righteous never apologize." - Leonard Ravenhill

    "When HOLINESS loses its sweetness it is a fierce thing to come

    in contact with." - Frank Bartleman

    "If we refuse to prescribe to the Christ honored methods of humility

    and prayer, we will certainly be refused for the Master's use in the

    coming revival." - David Smithers

    "They who pray not, know nothing of God, and know nothing of the

    state of their own souls." - Adam Clarke

    Enjoyed the quotes. Especially the one repeated above. It made me think that I would have penned a little differently.
    When holiness losses its humility it is a fierce thing to come in contact with.
    Of course, whether it is sweetness (kindness) or humility, holiness does not exist without these.
