"It does not appear that these extraordinary gifts of the Holy Ghost
were common in the Church for more than two or three centuries. We
seldom hear of them after that fatal period when the Emperor
Constantine called himself a Christian;...From this time they almost
totally ceased;...The Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ
than the other heathens....This was the real cause why the
extraordinary fits of the Holy Ghost were no longer to be found in the
Christian Church; because the Christians were turned Heathens again,
and had only a dead form left." - John Wesley

"When the Lord's sheep are a dirty grey, all black sheep are more
comfortable." - Vance Havner

“Depend upon it, if you are bent on prayer, the devil will not leave
you alone. He will molest you, tantalize you, block you, and will
surely find some hindrances, big or little or both. And we
sometimes fail because we are ignorant of his devices…I do not
think he minds our praying about things if we leave it at that. What
he minds, and opposes steadily, is the prayer that prays on until it
is prayed through, assured of the answer.” - Mary Warburton Booth

"God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with
a passion for the IMPOSSIBLE." - William Booth.

"Apostolic preaching is not marked by its beautiful diction, or
literary polish, or Cleverness of expression, but Operates 'in
demonstration of the Spirit and of power.'" - Arthur Wallis

"I hope some of you will agree with me that it is of far greater
importance that we have better Christians than that we have more of
them! If we have any spiritual concerns, our most pressing obligation
is to do all in our power to obtain a revival that will result in a
reformed, revitalized, purified church... followers of Christ
must become personally and vitally involved in the death and
resurrection of Christ. And this requires repentance, prayer,
watchfulness, self-denial, detachment from the world, humility,
obedience and cross-carrying.."
-A.W. Tozer

"He is no fool who gives away what he can not keep, to gain that
which he can not lose."
