A Tribute

A Tribute

This is one of the rare times when you will find me at a loss for words. You see, the hero of my life, my Dad, passed from this life into his eternal reward. His absence has produced a hole in my heart that has me struggling to find words to describe the depth of my love and admiration for this man. At any other time, I could write pages and pages and even more pages about Dad. But today, I don't know how to put into words an adequate tribute to a man who never stood behind a pulpit but preached sermon after sermon as those around watched Christ in him, a man who I am blessed to be able to...

Original To Me? Nope. (But I Wish That They Were!)

Original To Me? Nope. (But I Wish That They Were!)

If you have attended a Holy Spirit Rally or an Ignite & Unite Conference, I know that there is a good possibility that you may have heard one or more of the following quotations about the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. (On a totally different thought, if you haven't been in one of these meetings, what is your excuse? Get to one!!!) Are these quotations original to me? Nope. (But I wish that they were.) The reason for this blog post is really two-fold. First, the truths found in these ten quotations are too powerful to just go in one ear and out of the other ear. They need to be...

If & Why Ponderables

If & Why Ponderables

Once again, Mister Simple is here to share the obvious with you. Today, I am asking you to give me two short minutes to read some if and why thoughts and then add however much time is needed for the Holy Spirit to add His one-on-one thoughts with you. If the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from the Father to every believer (Luke 11:13), and... If, upon receiving this gift, the believer supernaturally receives a download of heaven's supernatural power (Acts 1:8), and... If learning about this gift by hearing preaching/teaching creates a desire to receive this gift in every believer (Acts...

From My Files – Smith Wigglesworth – Part 2

From My Files – Smith Wigglesworth – Part 2

Did you enjoy From My Files – Smith Wigglesworth – Part 1? As I mentioned in that post, there are just too many powerful quotations about the Holy Spirit to squeeze into one blog post. So, as promised, here are a few more powerful quotations from the teachings/preachings of this mighty man of faith. THE QUOTES ADDED TO MY FILES: It is impossible to overestimate the importance of being filled with the Spirit. Wherever the Holy Ghost has right of way, the gifts of the Spirit will be in manifestation; and where these gifts are never in manifestation, I question whether He is present. It is a...

From My Files – Smith Wigglesworth – Part 1

It happened again. When I began to pull Smith Wigglesworth quotations from my files, I could immediately see that there are just too many powerful, preachable, liveable truths about the Holy Spirit to place into one single blog post. Thankfully, the solution became quite simple. What could be one extra-long, wordy post is now two much shorter posts. Read, meditate, and then add these spiritual nuggets to your personal list of resources.  THE BACKGROUND: I will admit up front that many of this blog's readership has never heard of Smith Wigglesworth (1859 – 1947). Originally a plumber by...
