This is so difficult for me to believe. This August will be the 12th anniversary of my writing the blog. Simple math will tell you that twelve years times 52 blog posts a year equals 624 posts about the our relationship with the Holy Spirit and insights about how to work together with Him.
This week and next week, I want to go back through these twelve years and share with today’s readers a few of the what I call “quotable nuggets” that have been used in previous posts. I am confident that these quotations from some of my spiritual heroes will be a tremendous blessing to you.
“In the early church, signs and wonders and miracles followed. They cast out demons, blindness and paralysis. That’s normal Christianity! We’re so sub-normal, if we ever became normal, they (the world) will think we’re abnormal.” Leonard Ravenhill
“If the holy Son of God needed the anointing of the Spirit for His ministry, what supreme folly to imagine that we can dispense with it!” P.C. Nelson ~ The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of being filled with the Spirit.” Smith Wigglesworth ~ Ever Increasing Faith
“If you want to know how the Spirit acts now, just read how He did act when He had full possession of the Church. The Book of Acts is a blueprint by which the Holy Spirit wishes to work throughout His dispensation.” F.F. Bosworth ~ Christ the Healer
“As long as the gospel is preached and there are creatures to receive it, the power to demonstrate the supernatural will remain on earth.” George Jeffreys ~ The Phenomena of Pentecost
“Destitute of the fire of God, nothing else counts; possessing fire, nothing else matters.” Samuel Chadwick ~ The Way to Pentecost
“I have found in my own life that the more that I pray and worship God in tongues, the more manifestation of other gifts of the Spirit I have. The less I talk in tongues, the less manifestations I have. Speaking with tongues is the door into the rest of the spiritual gifts.” Kenneth E. Hagin ~ Why Tongues?
“Whether we speak of His ministry during His earthly career or since He returned to heaven, there is no difference at all as to the manifestation of His power in casting out devils, healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing the leper, causing the lame to walk, the blind to see, the deaf to hear and the dumb to speak. When Jesus Christ was upon the earth, He wrought miracles by the power of the Spirit: When He returned to heaven He continues to work by the same power.” D.W. Kerr~ The Phenomena of Pentecost
