Powerful. Impactful. Shareable. These are the three best words that I can find to describe the quotations shared in this and last week’s blog posts. I have gathered these powerful quotes over the years from books written by men who just didn’t know about the Holy Spirit, they intimately knew Him. Without reservation, I can say that each and every quote has greatly impacted my life causing me to know and flow with the Holy Spirit in a greater dimension. And finally, while I know that I have incorporated these quotes into previous blog teachings over the past eleven plus years, they definitely need to be shared again and again and again. Hopefully, they will resonate within you.
Here are this week’s quotable nuggets.
“Since the days of Pentecost, has the whole church ever put aside every other work and waited upon Him for ten days, that the Spirit’s power might be manifested? We give too much attention to method and machinery and resources, and too little to the source of power.” J. Hudson Taylor ~ The Source of Power for Christian Missions
“If the supernatural was in evidence during the dispensation of the Father, and again in the dispensation of the Son, what reason is there to suppose that miracles were to cease during the dispensation of the Holy Ghost?” George Jeffreys ~ The Phenomena of Pentecost
“The most important thing, the one thing that counts, is to see that we are filled with the Holy Spirit, filled to overflowing. Anything less than this is displeasing to God. We are commanded by God to be filled with His Spirit, and in the measure that you fail of this, you are far short of the plan of God.” Smith Wigglesworth ~ Ever Increasing Faith
“The failure of the Christians to live and walk in the Spirit, limits the Holy One of Israel; because our being filled with the Spirit is the condition for His perfect working.” F.F. Bosworth ~ Christ the Healer
“If we preach the original gospel, we will have the original results.” Reinhard Bonnke ~ Evangelism By Fire
“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.” Howard Carter ~ Questions and Answers on Spiritual Gifts
“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.” John G. Lake ~ John G. Lake: His Life, His Sermons, His Boldness of Faith
