From time to time, I love to share a few of the powerful truths that I have gleaned through my reading about the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Hopefully, they will bless you.

Kathryn Kuhlman“He’s more real to me than you are.”  Hinn, Benny Welcome Holy Spirit (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1995), 28.

Kathryn Kuhlman“The one thing I am so afraid of is grieving the Holy Spirit by trying to share the glory.” Kuhlman, Kathryn A Glimpse Into Glory (North Brunswick, NJ: Bridge-Logos Publishing, 1983), 21.

D.W. Kerr“As a Pentecostal people, we hold that the Bible evidence of the Baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples, and to all them that are afar off, and to as many as the Lord our God shall call, is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. We have found that whenever we, as a people, begin to let down on this particular point, the fire dies out, the ardor and fervor begin to wane, the glory departs. We have found where this position is held and wherever it is proclaimed, the Lord is working.”  Kerr, D.W. The Phenomena of Pentecost (Springfield, MO: Gospel Publishing House, 1931), 51.

Kenneth Hagin“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.”  Hagin, Kenneth E. Why Tongues? (Tulsa, OK: Kenneth E Hagin Evangelistic Association, Inc, 1975), 9-10.

Smith Wigglesworth“I have failed to see any man who understands the twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth chapters of 1 Corinthians unless he had been baptized with the Holy Spirit. He may talk about the Holy Spirit and the gifts, but his understanding is only a superficial one. However, when he gets baptized with the Holy Spirit, he speaks about a deep inward conviction by the power of the Spirit working in him, a revelation of the Scripture.” Msewe, Dr. Charles The Holy Spirit: The Biblical Doctrine of the Holy Spirit (Addison, TX: HIS Publishing Group, 2020), 234

Smith Wigglesworth – “When the power of the Holy Ghost is present, things will happen.”  Wigglesworth, Smith Faith that Prevails (Springfield, MO: Gospel Publishing House, 1938), 44.

Jimmy Swaggart – “For the person planning to die within the next few days, there probably aren’t any great advantages to receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. But for those who don’t plan to leave this vale of problems soon, there are tremendous advantages.”  Swaggart, Jimmy The Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Baton Rouge, LA: Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, 1981), 12.

F.F. Bosworth – “As long as the Church remained under the control of the Spirit, the same works continued.” Bosworth, FF Christ the Healer (Old Tappen, NJ: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1973), 29.

Donald Gee – “The Pentecostal Baptism brings us in touch with the supernatural power of God.”  Gee, Donald After Pentecost (Springfield, MO: Gospel Publishing House, 1945), 26.
