More GREAT QUOTES -Sermonindex.net "The attitude of the average Christian today is relax and be raptured. But He is coming... and when God gets angry youve no idea what it is. Like a thousand volcanoes exploding. He has appointed a day in which He is going to judge the world and the poor blind world doesnt know much about it and the poor blind church doesnt think much about it now." -Leonard Ravenhill "Lastly--are not the Church in their present state, a standing, public, perpetual denial of the gospel? Do they not stand out before the world, as a living, unanswerable contradiction of the gospel; and do more to harden sinners and lead them into a spirit of caviling and infidelity, than all the efforts of professed infidels from the beginning of the world to the present day?" - Charles Finney "The churchs concern for and identification with the poor are sure signs of its faithfulness to the Kingdom and are often signs of fundamental renewal." -Howard A. Synder "The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became Man for no other purpose." -C.S. Lewis "I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is by fire that a holy passion is kindled in the soul whereby we live the life of God. The soul's safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power Destitute of the Fire of God, nothing else counts; possessing Fire, nothing else matters." -Samuel Chadwick "God uses people. God uses people to perform His work. He does not send angels. Angels weep over it, but God does not use angels to accomplish His purposes. He uses burdened broken-hearted weeping men and women." -David Wilkerson "Prayer is the power of the Church; and could I speak as loud as the trumpet which is to wake the dead, I would thus call upon the Church, in all branches and in all lands: 'Awake! awake! put on thy strength, O Zion! put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem! Arise, shine, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.' Patriarchs, prophets, apostles. martyrs, reformers, were mighty in prayer. '" - Dr. N. Murray "Keep me. Lord, from fainting In this fierce fight, When the foe is rising, Clothe me with Thy might." -Evan Roberts.
