“The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on
the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside
down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they
bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise,
apathy, and paralysis. God give to us an intense cry for the
old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!” - A. B. Simpson

“We Christians too often substitute prayer for playing the game.
Prayer is good; but when used as a substitute for obedience, it is
nothing but a blatant hypocrisy, a despicable Pharisaism...To your
knees, man! and to your Bible! Decide at once! Don't hedge! Time
flies! Cease your insults to God, quit consulting flesh and blood.
Stop your lame, lying, and cowardly excuses. Enlist!"
 - C. T. Studd

"Without the Spirit of God, we can do nothing. We are as ships
without wind. We are useless." - Charles Spurgeon

"A Revived Church is the only hope for a dying world."
- Dr Andrew Murray

"The greatest need of this generation is a wholehearted return to
the plan and purposes of God." - Dr Richard Owen Roberts

"It is time to seek the Lord until He comes and rains righteousness
upon you." - Hosea

"When revival becomes a reality, it is always manifested in a
devotion to be like Jesus.

What would happen in our day if believers were to get honest
about their sin and serious about pursuing holiness?

Might we not once again experience the manifest presence of God
in our churches?"

- Dr M. Lloyd-Jones

"Revival is God revealing Himself to men in awesome holiness and
irresistible power."  - Arthur Wallis

"Revival is a movement of the Holy Spirit bringing about a revival of
New Testament Christianity in the Church of Christ and its related
community." - Dr James Edwin Orr

"The re-animation of the life of the believer... there can only be
revival when there is life to revive." - Dr Campbell-Morgan

"A people saturated with God."  - Brian Edwards

"Revival is simply New Testament Christianity, the saints going
back to normal." - Vance Havner

"The Christian church going back to the God-given norm."
- Selwyn Hughes

"Revival brings back a holy shock to apathy and carelessness."
- Winkie Pratney

"Nothing more than a return to Apostolic Christianity" - John Morgan

"Revival and evangelism, although closely linked, are not to be
confused. Revival is an experience in the Church, evangelism is an
expression of the church." - Paul Rees

"In revival, holiness becomes a constant necessity, rather than an
occasional option." - Mark Stippe

"Revival is about God, His children meeting with God, the nation
being confronted with Him." - Colin Urquhart

"Revival is God taking the field." - Colin Whitaker

"The arousing, quickening, and reclaiming of the backsliders in the
church and the general awakening of the classes, and insuring
attention to the claims of God." - Charles Finney
