"Do not we rest in our day too much on the arm of flesh? Cannot
the same wonders be done now as of old? Do not the eyes of the
Lord still run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show
Himself strong on behalf of those who put their trust in Him? Oh,
that God would give me more practical faith in Him! Where is now
the Lord God of Elijah? He is waiting for Elijah to call on Him."
 - James Gilmour of Mongolia

"We need a Heaven-sent revival, a burning fire from on high,
A purifying passion and a forsaking of our stubborn pride.
We need a vision of eternity, of Hell and the Judgement Day,
A fervent love for our Savior, that will gladly serve and obey.
We need a Pentecostal purging and a breaking deep within,
A vision of God Almighty and a river of tears for our nations sin.
We need a Heaven-sent revival, a burning fire set ablaze.
Yet, we'll never see such glory, until the Church begins to pray."
 - David Smithers

"Beware of reasoning about God's Word - obey It." - Oswald Chambers

"A revival of religion presupposes a declension." - Charles G. Finney

"A baptism of holiness, a demonstration of godly living is the
crying need of our day." - Duncan Campbell

Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry?
Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die?
Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand?
Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you DAMNED?
 - Leonard Ravenhill

"How shall I feel at the judgment, if multitudes of missed
opportunities pass before me in full review, and all my excuses
prove to be disguises of my cowardice and pride?" - W. E. Sangster

"It is better to have God’s approval, than the world’s applause:
there is a time shortly coming when a smile from God's face will
be infinitely better than all the applause of men: how sweet will
that word be, ‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant.’
(Matt. 25: 21)." - Thomas Watson

"The Church has halted somewhere between Calvary and
Pentecost." - Joe Brice

"Until self-effacing men return again to spiritual leadership, we
may expect a progressive deterioration in the quality of popular
Christianity year after year till we reach the point where the grieved
Holy Spirit withdraws - like the Shekinah from the temple."- A. W. Tozer

"I have need of nothing." -The Laodicean Church

"A man can not lead others where he is not willing to go himself.
Therefore, beware of the prayerless church leader who no longer
readily admits his own need for more of the person and power of
Jesus Christ. Only a seeking, praying heart can truly encourage
spiritual HUNGER in others!" – David Smithers

"God will fill the hungry because He Himself has stirred up the
hunger. As in the case of prayer, when God prepares the heart to
pray, He prepares His ear to hear (Ps. 10: 17). So in the case of
spiritual hunger, when God prepares the heart to hunger, He will
prepare His hand to fill." - Thomas Watson

"The same church members who yell like Comanche Indians at a
ball game on Saturday sit like wooden Indians in church on
Sunday." - Vance Havner

God never intended His Church to be a refrigerator in which to
preserve perishable piety. He intended it to be an incubator in
which to hatch out converts." - F. Lincicome

"There can be no revival when Mr. Amen and Mr. Wet-Eyes are
not found in the audience." - Charles G. Finney

"A well-grounded assurance is always attended with three fair
handmaids: love, humility and holy joy." - Thomas Brooks

"Come as the fire, and purge our hearts with sacrificial flame; Let
our whole soul an offering be To our Redeemer's Name." - Andrew Reed
