In the last blog post, I had trouble limiting the number of Holy Spirit nuggets to share in the post. Honestly, I struggled because, over the years, I have collected so, so many powerful quotations from men and women of God that I love and honor. To me, these nuggets are just too good to remain hidden on the pages of the books sitting on my bookshelf or tucked away in Excel spreadsheets on my computer. Hopefully, you enjoyed and have meditated on the quotations that I shared.
Here are a few more nuggets to enjoy and allow to impact your life.
C.M. Ward “The more of the Spirit that possesses me, the more that I see. Without Him, I am blind to the treasures lying at my doorstep.” Ward, C.M. The Holy Spirit (Santa Ana, CA: Trinity Broadcasting Network,1970), 21.
C.M. Ward “The Spirit can never be confined to the conventional.” Ward, C.M. The Holy Spirit (Santa Ana, CA: Trinity Broadcasting Network,1970), 41.
John G. Lake “I want to talk with the utmost frankness and say to you, that tongues have been the making of my ministry. It is that peculiar communication with God when God reveals to my soul the truth I utter to you day by day in the ministry. Many times, I climb out of bed, take my pencil and pad, and jot down the beautiful things of God, the wonderful things of God that He talks out in my spirit and reveals to my heart.” Lake, John G. John G. Lake: His Life, His Sermons, His Boldness of Faith (Fort Worth, TX: Kenneth Copeland Publications, 1994),485.
P.C. Nelson “Without His (the Holy Spirit’s) presence, the believer is as devoid of power as is a dead locomotive with neither fuel, water nor steam.” Nelson, P.C. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Fort Worth, TX: Southwestern Press, 1942), 11.
P.C. Nelson “It would be an insult to our Lord to say, or even tacitly imply, that we do not need such an experience as the baptism in the Spirit, and no less an insult to Him to be indifferent and unconcerned in relation to it.” Nelson, P.C. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Fort Worth, TX: Southwestern Press, 1942), 17.
Rod Parsley “Receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit does not depend on your holiness or lack of it. It is a gift, and it is given freely to all believers who ask for it.” Parsley, Rod The Fire Within: A Guide to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Columbus, OH: Results Publishing, 2021), 53.
Howard Carter “We must not forget that the speaking with other tongues is not only an initial evidence of the Holy Spirit’s indwelling, it is a continual experience for the rest of his life to assist in the worship of God. It is a flowing stream that should never dry up, and that will enrich the life spiritually.” Carter, Howard Questions and Answers on Spiritual Gifts (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, Inc. 1976),120.
It is so difficult to end this blog post. There are so many more powerful nuggets that I want to share. So, guess what…I’ll share just a few more in the next post.
