Albus Dumbledore on Leadership and Authority

"Those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it".

J K Rowling - "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" - Bloomsbury, London (2007) - (p575).

R T Kendall on Worship

"Real worship takes place when we are unafraid to express what we feel".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p169).

R T Kendall on Grace and Legalism

"Just as there are those who are afraid to believe in justification by faith because of the fear of lawlessness, so also there are those who want things to be in rigid order because of the danger of fanaticism. Those people are in danger of quenching the Spirit".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p168).

R T Kendall on Fasting

"If enough people in a church took fasting seriously, it's impact on the worship could be quite dramatic".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p144).

R T Kendall on Worship Leaders

"Leadership in worship must be a leadership that keeps out of the way as much as possible and enables the people to see and follow Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p117).

R T Kendall on Worship Leaders and the Holy Spirit

"In worship the leader should see and follow the Holy Spirit".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p116).

R T Kendall on Worship Leaders

"What I mean by "lead worship" is to lead the congregation to worship and adore God".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p114).

R T Kendall on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

"There is not one shred of biblical evidence that the gifts of the Spirit have ceased just because we now have the Bible ... this is simply a theological cop-out by those who want to explain the abscence of supernatural power in the church today".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p103).

R T Kendall on the Holy Spirit

"We honour the Spirit by releasing Him".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p37).

R T Kendall on Revival

"A telling sign of revival is that people are oblivious of everything but God".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p22).

R T Kendall on Worship and the Holy Spirit

"Dynamic worship is worship by the Spirit of God. And we will know that the Spirit is present in our worship if these 3 things follow: 1. An increase of faith. 2. An increase of fellowship. 3. An increase of freedom".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p21-22).

R T Kendall on Defining Worship

"Here then is my own definition of worship; it is the response to and/or preparation for the preached Word".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p16).

R T Kendall on the Holy Spirit and Worship

"Worship is only really done by the Holy Spirit. As genuine revival only comes by the Holy Spirit so too does true worship. The Holy Spirit is as essential to one as the other".

Dr R T Kendall - "Worshipping God" - Hodders, St Ives (2004) - (p10).

Don Basham on Submission and Authority

"The measure of our submission to God then is not expressed when we submit to just authority but when we submit to unjust authority".

Don Basham in "Secular Authority and the Christian" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p56).

Don Basham on Submission and Authority

"Submission to authority is not based on the personal character of the man in authority nor is it based on how justly or unjustly the authority is applied. Our submission is to God who gives the authority".

Don Basham in "Secular Authority and the Christian" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p54).

Don Basham on Authority

"Submission to authority is essential for us to grow in maturity in Christ".

Don Basham in "Secular Authority and the Christian" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p51).

Derek Prince on Intercessors

"One man could have turned the tide for a whole nation. God is looking for a man!".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p46).

Derek Prince on Intercessors

"We are the decisive factor in the affairs of the universe".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p45).

Derek Prince on Territorial Spirits

"I believe that behind every kingdom, every nation, every great city there is an invisible rulership ... I have travelled widely and I have noticed when you go to certain places or certain cities you can feel the presence of spiritual power ...

There is never a breakthrough in the Kingdom of God until these spiritual powers have been brought into subjection by prayer. When that happens the avalanche of revival will cover a nation or a kingdom or a city. The great barrier to a real move of God is in the unseen realm".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p44).

Derek Prince on Intercession

"When you seek God's face you do not stop until you get into God's Presence - even if it takes all night. There is a lot of praying that is not seeking God's face - it stops short of contact with God".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p35).

Derek Prince on Intercessors

"We are the people who are the defense of the country. We are the bullwark of any nation ... the righteous man can preserve a whole city".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p33).

Derek Prince on Prayer

"God desires the church to exert a controlling influence on the affairs of this world through prayer".

Derek Prince in "Praying for the Government" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p31).

Ern Baxter on Doctrinal Orthodoxy

"Truth is not a legalistic set of facts but rather a life-changing stream that flows and prodcues change by the power of love".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p28).

Ern Baxter on Doctrinal Orthodoxy

"Truth divorced from love is no longer truth for once the love factor goes out of truth, that truth becomes a distortion and a caricature".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p28).

Ern Baxter on Doctrinal Orthodoxy

"We too as Christians dedicated to the truth must see that we don't fall into the same trap; by becoming unlovingly dogmatic, unChrist-like and severe. It is so easy when we are convinced we are right to become self-righteous in pressing our claim".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p27).

Ern Baxter on the Ephesian Church

"What was the sin of the Ephesian church? (Revelation 2:5) ... They left their first love at the point where they had stopped being loving in pressing the claims of truth ... I believe that He was referring to the fact that they had become so severe and so dedicated to being 'right' that they had moved into legalistic righteousness and had lost the touch of love".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p27).

Ern Baxter on Revival

"Revival means to restore health and vitality to life that has ebbed or fallen into subnormal conditions".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p25).

Ern Baxter on Baptism in Water

"Baptism is linked with repentance (Acts 2:38); "Repent and be baptised". Someone may ask "Can't I repent without being baptised?". Why would you want to? If repent means changing one's mind and wholly agreeing with God on everything and God's Word says "Be baptised" - why would the question even be raised?".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p25).

Ern Baxter on Defining Repentance

"Repentance is the informing and changing of the mind, the stirring and directing of the emotions to urge the required change and the action of the yielded will in turning the whole man away from sin to God".

Ern Baxter in "Repentance" from "Vintage Years - Selected Articles from New Wine's First Decade: 1969-1979" - New Wine Publishers, Mobile, Alabama - (p16).

Gordon Fee on Jesus Christ

"Christ is now the Warrior King who through His death and resurrection, not only subdued all of God's enemies but also is the source of all gifting in His Body - the Church. Secondy what are ordinarily and rightly understood as the preogatives of God alone are now equally shared by Christ the Lor and this without apology or explanation".

Gordon D Fee - "Pauline Christology - An Exegetical/Theological Study" - Hendrikson (2007) - (pp358-359).

Gordon Fee on the Church

"The church where Jew and Gentile have become the one people of God is pictured as the Body of Christ - the Lord who now sits enthroned in the heavenlies and under whose feet all over powers have been subjected".

Gordon D Fee - "Pauline Christology - An Exegetical/Theological Study" - Hendrikson (2007) - 354).

Rob Rufus on the power of God's acceptance

    "...once they have the revelation, 'I am accepted; even if I don't pray, I am still accepted!' they can respond to the call, 'Come on , let's pray. Let's go to the nations,' because they are not doing it to obtain God's acceptance and approval - they already have that."

    Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (p4).

John Hosier on Ephesians 4 Ministries

"Apostles lay foundations and discern emerging leaders. Prophets challenge, stir up and motivate churches to keep to the vision. Evangelists train the church in reaching out to the lost. Pastor/teachers care for and instruct the flock of God. Such a Restoration of ministry is a huge help to the local church".
John Hosier - "A New Day of Restoration" - NFI Magazine Aug-Oct 2002 - (p34).

David Devenish on Restoration in Practice

"So we are committed to a Restoration of New Testament doctrine and practice to the Church. Hence we stand together for the truth of God as against legalism. We believe that every member has a contribution to make in terms of service within the church, towards the community and during worship. Worship is not to be dominated by a band any more than it was to be dominated by an organ and a set list of hymns. We are to expect the Holy Spirit to intervene in all our meetings with gifts distributed as He chooses. We do not believe in clergy/laity distinctions but relational servant leadership with the anointing of God as described in Ephesians 4 giving the gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists and pastor/teachers".

David Devenish - "A Vision for an End-Time Glorious Church" - NFI Magazine Aug-Oct 2002 - (p12).

Terry Virgo on the Holy Spirit in Church

"The Holy Spirit is not a theological abstraction but the manifestation of God's Presence in the redeemed community making everything new".

Terry Virgo - "Does Anyone Still Believe in Restoration?" - NFI Magazine Aug-Oct 2002 - (p9).

Terry Virgo on Ephesians 4 Ministries

"The church will arrive at this maturity only through the equipping ministries of the gifts of the ascended Christ ... They are not appointed by men nor voted into office nor simply the product of theological training but gifted and given specifically by the Lord Jesus Christ to His Church for the effectiveness f the body ... without the full activity of these trans-local ministries, the members of the body will not be equipped and brought into the maturity anticipated and described in Ephesians 4".

Terry Virgo - "Does Anyone Still Believe in Restoration?" - NFI Magazine Aug-Oct 2002 - (p7).

Terry Virgo on Word and Spirit

"It had been my longing that the conference would welcome the Spirit and honour the Word. Why is it so rarely that we are privilidged to experience at the same time the manifestation of the Holy Spirit's power and true respect for the Word of God? How sad that we so often have to put up with a lack of one or the other".

Terry Virgo - "Firstline" - NFI Magazine August-October 2002 - (p3).

Terry Virgo on Apostles Today

"Those who have argued that apostolic ministry ended in the first century have failed to provide a substitute for the crucial ongoing role of apostolic ministry in church life".

Terry Virgo - "Apostles" - NFI Magazine - Autumn 2000 - (p8).

Terry Virgo on Truly Charismatic Churches

"Our churches must be centres of Holy Spirit activity. God is with us! His Presence is to be enjoyed. Beware the danger of thoughtlessly grieving or quenching the Holy Spirit and getting used to meetings where His Presence is hardly known ... When did you last feel the powerful sense of the Lord's Presence in your meetings? When were you last genuinely built up by a prophetic utterance? We must 'covet to prophesy'. Beware creeping passivity and simply waiting to see what the lead guitarist will do next.

God is present! He is willing to scatter spiritual gifts among you and the manifestation of the Spirit is for the good of us all".

Terry Virgo - "Firstline" - NFI Magazine Autumn 2000 - (p3).

David Holden on Churches and Worship

"In a way we should not be here just to impress the world though. Surely when we worship in a God-honouring way, being biblical and spontaneous in a charismatic atmosphere and in a format where all of us are worshipping not for what we receive but rather to the glory of God and then the nations will say "God is really among us" (1 Corinthians 14:25). In the end if our worship is evangelistic it will draw all people for Jesus is truly lifted high".

David Holden - "Worship! Who Leads?" - NFI Magazine Winter 2001 - (p35).

David Holden on Being Truly Charismatic

"Being a charismatic church means that you have a deluge of spiritual gifts in your worship. Is that true for you? How can you be truly charismatic if it is only by reputation and not in reality? When was the last time you had a tongue and an interpretation in your meeting or a time when many individuals brough "songs in the Spirit"? Gifts are not an option; they are essential for biblical worship and for the churches to come to maturity. Gifts are not the pinnacle of worship; they are aids to help us to worship more effectively".

David Holden - "Worship! Who leads?" - NFI Magazine Winter 2001 - (p35).

David Stroud on Discipling Christian Leaders

"One of the roles of every generation of Christians is that they must hand on the baton to the next generation in due course".

David Stroud - "Handing on the Baton" - NFI Magazine May-July 2002 - (p7).

Terry Virgo on Ultimate Triumph

"God has a global programme to bless all the nations. An inward-looking, legalistic church devoid of the Holy Spirit, enslaved by law and sin with an eschatology of despair was hardly likely to get the job done ... Giid wants militant Christians determined to bring Christ's liberty not only to entrenched and lifeless churches, He also wants His light to shine throughout the world. He wants restored churches to recover missionary passion and see world evangelisation as a God-given command".

Terry Virgo - "Firstline" - NFI Magazine May-July 2002 - (p5).

Terry Virgo on New Covenant Life

"The glory of the New Covenant is that each one shall personally know God from the least to the greatest ... the outpouring of the Holy Spirit brough the personal accessibility of God to every believer. The truly mature Spirit-filled Christian will rejoice in his personal potential to know and enjoy God for himself, to hear His voice and to know His guidance".

Terry Virgo - "Follow My Leader" - NFI Magazine Nov-January 2002 - (p9).

David Devenish on Ultimate Triumph

"We are to be a people who are concious of being sent because we have heard the cry from heaven and have seen the vision. That is an apostolic people. It is why we can together be described as a "family of churches" or a "movement". We are based on relationships but that is not stagnant navel-gazing. We are going somewhere and want to be sent. We want to move into nation after nation. We want to go to unreached people groups. The original command to Adam and Eve was "Fill the earth". Today's command is "Fill the earth with disciples of Jesus". That is what Jesus said in the Great Comission".

David Devenish - "Here I am. Send me!" - NFI Magazine Winter 2000 - (p62).

David Devenish on Restoration

"Notice I said restoring, not restoration of the Kingdom. Although the Kingdom has now come, it has not yet come in all it's fullness. The kingdom will not be fully restored until the new heaven and the new earth. This is very important and helps us to be free from the triumphalism which sometimes as restorationists we are accused of. The Kingdom will only come in all its fullness when Jesus returns. However we are to see the 'powers of the age to come' breaking in today".

David Devenish - "Here I am. Send me!" - NFI Magazine Winter 2000 - (p62).

David Devenish on Worship

"Let our worship declare the wonders and glories of God. Even the functioning of spiritual gifts in our worship is so that people can say "God is among you". Worship of God's greatness is more important than style, technique or even musical quality".

David Devenish - "Here I am. Send me!" - NFI Magazine Winter 2000 - (p60).

Dave Holden on the Ultimate Church

"When church in your town is a city on a hill; a house of prayer; Zion - God's dwelling place; the fullness of Him who fills all in all; God's chosen people; a royal priesthood; a holy nation; the salt of the earth; the light of the world; the joy of the whole earth; the prepared and wating Bride - then the impact on your town will be enormous as it was in the New Testament. Remember, the latter glory of this house (21st Century?) will be greater than the former!".

Dave Holden - "Restoring the Church" - NFI Magazine Winter 2000 - (p47).

Bill Hybels on the Church

“Life to the full – when Jesus promised us life in all its fullness I think He really meant it. I want to introduce life in awesome technicolour … awesome highs and devastating lows. This is the real deal. This is the only crack at life I am only going to get … If you love deeply then you are going to get hurt badly … celebrate raucously because celebration is a gift from God. I love local church work – I love the people I do it with – the stakes of it – it’s heaven and hell – it is the highest stake gain in town – I love that” – Bill Hybels.

John Hosier on Faith

"The opposite of faith is fear".

John Hosier on Ephesians 4 Ministries and Stagnation

"In a time of stagnation, the Ephesians 4 Ministries will be a major weapon of attack against stagnation. You may need to call in apostolic ministry to lay some foundation of grace. You may need prophetic ministry in the church to awaken vision again. In (Haggai 1:13); “The work stagnated” – enter the prophet Haggai. “I am with you declares the Lord … they came and began work on the house of the Lord their God”. The prophet came in and stirred a stagnant people and the work on the temple began.

You may need an evangelist to come in and model something with regard to the Alpha programme. You may need to call in an experienced teacher to thrill people with truth.

When nothing is happening – don’t let nothing happen. Fight! You need Ephesians 4 Ministry that will stir and rally the people".

John Hosier at TOAM '07 - 11th July 2007

Terry Virgo on Spiritual Warfare

“Christian life is not like a battle – it is a battle” – Terry Virgo.

Cited in John Hosier at TOAM '07 - 11th July 2007

John Hosier on Spiritual Warfare

"I believe the most intense form of spiritual warfare is engaged when we are building the local church".

John Hosier at TOAM '07 - 11th July 2007

Sam Storms on the Book of Psalms

"What might be said to have constituted the central and controlling theme throughout? I think the answer is obvious: Big God! Beautiful God! Faithful God! Great God! Gracious God! Powerful God! Loving God! Loyal God! Righteous God! Merciful God! Majestic God! Enjoyable God! Joyful God! Judging God! Holy God! Happy God! And to top it off, he’s our God!".

Rob Rufus Reflecting on TOAM 07

"What characterised this trip was the number of notable miracles instantly testified and fully formed ... Human beings are desperate for the real thing ... I have never operated before at that power - that is the truth. 80% of the people had an immediate release of power at CCK in the evening on 8th July. Glenda had a prophetic word that Terry Virgo completely confirmed something they had been praying into ... People are tired of teaching that isn't backed up with substance - but people were seeing things! ... 110 people were healed in a ten second prayer on the last session ... one of the leading prophets got up and said at the last session that "God says you have changed address - the whole movement has gone to another realm in the supernatural".

Terry Virgo said to me after the session; "Rob - this visit has changed our whole movement".

And that came from Hong Kong! This little church is being used to change the expression of Christianity across the world".

Rob Rufus - "His Great Power That is At Work within Us" - 15th July 2007 - City Church International, Hong Kong.

Rob Rufus on Pastors in Revival

"Pastors and teachers can help keep a church in a revival atmosphere without everyone get exhausted, but also keep the level of faith in the miraculous high. The early church lived in the miraculous while shepherding and caring for one another! The local church should be a place where the glory of God comes – the supernatural Presence of God is going to be in the place".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 - 10th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Deacons

"Today we just see them as putting out chairs in the church – yet the Bible suggests that the deacons are to help the elders govern. One of their main roles is to help the church move forward in unity ... These men had to be full of the Spirit and wisdom".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 - 10th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Faith and Humility

“If you get an unbroken sequence of miracles the danger is you get stupid. God will give us longer unbroken stretches of miracles if we stay humble!” .

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 - 10th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Faith

“It’s better to get out of the boat and try to walk on water and drown than die of boredom sitting in the religious safety of the boat”.

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 - 10th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Divine Sovereignity and Human Responsibility

"We must get an understanding of how to cooperate with the sovereignity of God yet not abdicate everything to the sovereignity of God and get into fatalism and sit around in fatalism waiting for the sovereign initiatives of God before we even step out in faith".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 - 10th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Faith

Greg Haslam on Ephesians 4 Ministries

"Until such ministries are again heard and seen in action among us, we shall remain somewhat handicapped and stunted indefinately and never reach our full potential. God help us if that should prove to be the case".

Greg Haslam - "Ephesians 4 Ministries and Church Unity - Appendix 2" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p622).

Greg Haslam on Ephesians 4 Ministries and End-Time Glorious Church

"We are to become nothing less than the vanguard display of God's ultimate plan for the whole cosmos! As trans-local ministries ignore denominational boundaries and cross-fertilise diverse congregations they will help break up the lonely, isolated and in some cases fiercely independent ethos of many Christian groups ... it is futile to pray for unity and expanding mission whilst at the same time disparaging the instruments that God uses to effect this".

Greg Haslam - "Ephesians 4 Ministries and Church Unity - Appendix 2" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p621).

Greg Haslam on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The baptism of the Spirit is a movement of the Spirit both within us and upon us. It is ... both a baptism and a filling. It is a movement of God's Spirit from the outside in, so that He descends upon us and penetrates our very life. It is a movement of God's Spirit from the inside out so that He pervades every part of our redeemed humanity and personality. This is both a deluge from above and a flooding from within".

Greg Haslam - "Be Filled with the Spirit - Appendix 1" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p608).

Greg Haslam on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The Baptism of the Spirit imparts to us the spiritual weaponry necessary to become Christ's co-belligerents in spiritual warfare and to reinforce and to extend Satan's defeat and the victory already won for us at the cross of Calvary. No wonder the devil wants God's people to remain ignorant or totally confused about these matters. And no wonder the Church in so many places has for so long hung on like grim death for mere survival with little or no hope of success, and without the remotest expectation of advance and victory. The baptism of the Spirit changes all that!".

Greg Haslam - "Be Filled with the Spirit - Appendix 1" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p608).

Greg Haslam on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"You cannot be a Christian without the Holy Spirit indwelling you (Romans 8:9) but you can be a Christian without Him empowering you".

Greg Haslam - "Be Filled with the Spirit - Appendix 1" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p606).

Greg Haslam on Be Filled With the Spirit

"Most of us heed Paul's command 'do not get drunk with wine' but in my experience it is not drunken Christians who give us the most problems, it is those who have not been filled with the Holy Spirit. Think of the rivalry, slander, gossip, meanness, rebellion ... and lazy apathy that are ruining so many churches - and all because such people refuse to be filled with the Spirit".

Greg Haslam - "Be Filled with the Spirit - Appendix 1" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p603).

Greg Haslam on the Primary End of Preaching

"The Holy Spirit's great priority is first to make worshippers of us all - the primary end of all preaching".

Greg Haslam - "Be Filled with the Spirit - Appendix 1" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p600).

Philip Greenslade on Ephesians 4 Ministries and the Prophet

"Without the prophet the church becomes a spirit-less organization in which even apostolic work hardens into a new form of religious bureaucracy and without the prophetic thrust the teaching ministry perpetuates cycles of timeless truth but is deaf to what the Spirit is now saying to the churches. Without a prophetic voice challenging God's people to lay down their lives for the world, pastoral nuture can easily degenerate. Evangelism too, desperately needs to hear the prophet if it's methods are to be as godly as it's message and if it is to avoid giving stereotyped answers to questions people are not asking".

Philip Greenslade cited in Greg Haslam - "Prophetic Preaching" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p435).

Greg Haslam on Prophetic Preachers

"As those whom God calls and anoints to stanad in His Presence and hear His voice, prophetic people share both God's concerns and God's dreams for His people, and accurately report both. They are the eyes and ears of the church and God opens doors of opportunity for them to minister what they have received. They hear what others cannot hear and they dare to speak what others dare not say. They are not, nor ever could be mere "yes-men" ... They have a large measure of independence from the institutions and prominent people around them. They may be on the payroll but they will not over like a lap dog for pay".

Greg Haslam - "Prophetic Preaching" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p431).

Greg Haslam on Prophecy

"Prophecy helps keep us up to date with God's plans and purposes. In the Old Testament prophets are called "seers"; they are people who "see". Prophetic men and women are in effect the eyes and ears of the church. They see regularly what others don't regularly see. They help convey vision and direction to the church because the sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plans to His servants, the prophets".

Greg Haslam - "Prophetic Preaching" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p428).

Dave Holden on Faith and Preaching

"Dynamic faith is the crying need of the Church in the western world. It is full of unbelief and cynicism which is at least in part the reason why we sometimes do not see much happen. It is not faith in a formula. It is not faith in faith. It is faith in an unchanging God and faith in His unchanging promises , a faith that works in an everyday situation".

Dave Holden - "Preaching to Change A Nation" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p304).

Dave Holden on Holy Spirit and Preaching

"What our land and the Church in the UK needs today is a restoration of Word-based preaching that is powerfully anointed by the Holy Spirit. When, week by week, there is a mixture of Word and Spirit in everything we do and when there is impartation taking place in the preaching so that there is a demonstration of the Holy Spirit's power then we will see men and women's lives changed and transformed".

Dave Holden - "In Demonstration of the Spirit's Power" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p285).

Dave Holden on the Holy Spirit and Preaching

"The Holy Spirit does not anoint sermons that are only geared to what people want to hear".

Dave Holden - "In Demonstration of the Spirit's Power" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p284).

Dave Holden on Word and Spirit

"In my mind it is churches that have the combination of the Spirit and the Word together that will change nations; not churches which have one without the other, but those which are passionate about both together. We need our preaching to be an amalgam of Word and Spirit, we need our meetings to be absorbed in Word and Spirit. I cannot think of one thing that we do in the life of our churches that should not have this combination of Word and Spirit together".

Dave Holden - "In Demonstration of the Spirit's Power" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam" - (2006) Sovereign World - (p277).

Terry Virgo on Defining the Church

"The Church is breathtakingly wonderful. It is a new community such as has never before existed on the earth made up of Jew and Gentile, male and female, Greek and Jew, slave and free, knit together in love, full of the Presence of the Holy Spirit - a new creation in the earth. That, Paul preaches, is what the Church of God is".

Terry Virgo - "Apostolic Preaching" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam) - (2006) Sovereign World - (p215).

Terry Virgo on The Church and Prophets

"The Church will die if it does not understand that it is meant to be a community on the move reaching the world. We are to be a prophetic apostolic community".

Terry Virgo - "Christ's Ascension Gifts" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam) - (2006) Sovereign World - (p192).

Terry Virgo on Prophets

"The people of God are essentially a prophetic community. While we are also a pastoral community and the flock of God does need to be shepherded, we are not essentially to be a shepherding community. We must not forget that our raison d'etre is to be God's voice to the world".

Terry Virgo - "Christ's Ascension Gifts" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam) - (2006) Sovereign World - (p191).

Terry Virgo on Apostles

"The Church needs to rediscover this ministry. If we are concerned
about world mission, we know that we have to set about planting churches all around the world. It is the role of apostles to lay foundations. For the sake of world mission it is vital that we must re-discover the biblical place of apostles".

Terry Virgo - "Christ's Ascension Gifts" in "Preach the Word!" (ed. Greg Haslam) - (2006) Sovereign World - (p191).

Derek Prince on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The measure is not in God's giving; the measure is in our receiving. We may have as much of the Holy Spirit as we are willing to receive".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - Charisma Publications (2006) - (p250).

Derek Prince on Emotion

"True conversion neither surpresses nor obliterates the emotions. True conversion on the contrary liberates and then redirects the emotions".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - Charisma Publications (2006) - (p212).

Derek Prince on the Gifts of the Holy Spiri

"The Nine Gifts or manifestations of the Spirit may be exercised by believers subsequent to it and as a result of their having been baptised in the Holy Spirit".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - Charisma Publications (2006) - (p204).

Derek Prince on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"We can sum up the differences between the two experiences of receiving the Holy Spirit. 1. On Resurrection Sunday it was:

  • Resurrected Christ.
  • Inbreathed Holy Spirit.
  • Result: Life.

2. On Pentecost Sunday it was:

  • Ascended Christ.
  • Outpoured Holy Spirit.
  • Result: Power".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - Charisma Publications (2006) - (pp195-196).

Matthew Henry on the Song of Solomon

"In this chapter, after the title of the book (ver. 1), we have Christ and his church, Christ and a believer, expressing their esteem for each other. I. The bride, the church, speaks to the bridegroom (ver. 2-4), to the daughters of Jerusalem (ver. 5, 6), and then to the bridegroom, ver. 7. II. Christ, the bridegroom, speaks in answer to the complaints and requests of his spouse, ver. 8-11. III. The church expresses the great value she has for Christ, and the delights she takes in communion with him, ver. 12-14. IV. Christ commends the church's beauty, ver. 15. V. The church returns the commendation, ver. 16, 17. Where there is a fire of true love to Christ in the heart this will be of use to blow it up into a flame".

Matthew Henry - "Commentary on Whole Bible" - Volume 3 - online version.

Jonathan Edwards on Song of Solomon

No 147 - Solomon's Song - "The name by which Solomon calls this song confirms to me that it is more than an ordinary love song and that it was designed for a divine song and of divine authority for we read in 1 Kings 4:32 that Solomon's songs were "a thousand and five". This he called the "Song of songs". That is the most excellent of his songs ... because it was a song of the most excellent subject treating of the love, union and communion between Christ and His spouse of which marriage and conjugal love was but a shadow. These are the most excellent lovers and their love the most excellent love".

Jonathan Edwards - "Notes on Scripture" - Yale University Press, New Haven (1998) - (p92).

Jonathan Edwards on the Song of Solomon

No 86 - Canticles 1:5 - "The people of Kedar it seems used to dwell in tents, in more able habitations and lived by feeding of sheep therefore the Church is very fitly represented by these. It's agreeable to many other representations in Scripture where God's people are called His sheep, His flock and Christ and His ministers are called shepherds and the Church is also compared to a tabernacle or tents. It is fitly compared to moveable tents for here we are pilgrims and strangers and we have no abiding place".

Jonathan Edwards - "Notes on Scripture" - Yale University Press, New Haven (1998) - (p75).

Jonathan Edwards on the Book of Esther

"So it will be by the earnest prayer of the Church that God's people will be delivered from Antichrist and God will extend the golden sceptre of His grace as the king to Esther (5:2)".

Jonathan Edwards - "Notes on Scripture" - Yale University Press, New Haven (1998) - (p62).

Jonathan Edwards on the Book of Esther

"It appears to me very probable that this book of Esther is a history that is a shadow of gospel things and times ... the great feast that Ahasureus made is the gospel feast. Vashti is sent for to this feast to appear before the king (1:11) ... Vashti though she was the king's own wife refused to come for she had a feast of her own. So the Jews though God's perculiar people refused to come to the glorious feast he made through their pride and vanity".

Jonathan Edwards - "Notes on Scripture" - Yale University Press, New Haven (1998) - (p60).

Jonathan Edwards on the Song of Solomon

Number 8 - Canticles 8:1 - 'Oh that thou were as my brother that sucked the breasts of my mother! When I should find thee I would kiss thee; yea I should not be despised'. "Which wish of the Church is now accomplished by Christ's incarnation. The Son of God who is infinitely higher than we is come down to us in our nature and has familiarised Himself to us".

Jonathan Edwards - "Notes on Scripture" - Yale University Press, New Haven (1998) - (p50).

Wayne Grudem on Coming Revival

"I mentioned this to Terry Virgo with tears in my eyes as I felt something of the Holy Spirit's Presence in saying this. I don't think when God brings revival that He is going to pass over the United Kingdom with all that wonderful history of worldwide influence in the spread of the gospel".

Wayne Grudem - "Interview with Wayne Grudem" - Newfrontiers Magazine July-September 2007 - (p39).

Terry Virgo on Secular and Sacred

"Jesus said, 'I am with you all the days'. He comes with us to our place of work as much as to our place of worship".

Terry Virgo - "Coping with Monday Mornings" - Newfrontiers Magazine July-Sept 2007 - (p9).

Rob Rufus on Christian Therapy

"Therapy is a commentary on the lack of power in the Church – therapies that border on humanistic psychologies".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Tangible Anointing

"The power is that tangible it doesn’t matter whether you shake or fall, you can feel it leaving and if it doesn’t leave you know they won’t get healed. The power has to flow out of us and into the body. If it goes into the body the power will go like a heat seeking missile to the problem if it is big enough".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Presence and Power of God

"Love the Presence more than the power. When you love His Presence more than His power then His power will be manifested more than ever. When you love who He is then His power hidden in His Presence is incomparably great".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Gospel with Signs Accompanying

"I once read the book of Acts in one sitting and sobbed and sobbed because saw that every spearhead in the Book of Acts into a new region was broken open by a significant, dramatic miracle".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Word and Spirit

"We are not servants of the Gospel if there isn’t workings of His power! Some are saying the Gospel is just about “peace with God, forgiven sins and heaven”.

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on the Gift of Discerning of Spirits

"The discerning of spirit is not primarily to discern devils although it does do that – but primarily angelic operations. God has got a mighty angelic army meant to minister to the Church".

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on the Book of Ephesians

"Ephesians is not just about a static position in Christ. It is more than doctrine but is trying to communicate to us supernatural life experience. It says “seated in heavenly places”. We are on earth literally ministering from heaven to earth – ministering from eternal to temporary. This is living power! This isn’t just about being saved and going to heaven. This is power to operate in the earth with!".

RobRufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Rob Rufus on Healing

"Healings will always be central to God’s agenda as signs and wonders because He loves people. He didn’t heal because He was the Messiah – He healed because He loved them. The Lord says “I want to heal you as an end in itself”.

Rob Rufus at TOAM '07 (Seminar) - 13th July 2007

Barry Webb on the Song of Solomon

"It's (The Song of Solomon) subject is love but it is neither a philosophical treatise about love nor a sex manual. It is a rhapsody of love".

Barry G Webb - "Five Festal Garments" - NSBT Series (Ed. D A Carson) - (2000) Apollos - (p18).

Smith Wigglesworth on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"I have found it is better to have a man who has not received the baptism of the Holy Spirit but who is hungry for all that God has for Him than a man who has received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and has settled down and become stationary and stagnant".

Smith Wigglesworth - "Smith Wigglesworth on Spiritual Gifts" - (1998) Whitaker House - (pp13-14).

Julian Adams on Prophecy

"The voice of God is about a revelation of His glory – about an experience of His glory".

Julian Adams at TOAM '07 (TT1 on Prophecy) - 10th July 2007

Julian Adams on Prophecy

"For many of us we don’t flow in the prophetic because we don’t understand our sonship. We can read many books but if we don’t get it settled that we are sons then we will live as orphans for the rest of your life waiting for the command of God rather than the heart of God. The prophetic is not about just hearing words but about an encounter with a real Person".

Julian Adams at TOAM '07 (TT1 on Prophecy) - 10th July 2007

Julian Adams on Prophecy

"The basis is not a technological understanding of how we hear God’s voice but an experiential encounter".

Julian Adams at TOAM '07 (TT1 on Prophecy) - 10th July 2007

Julian Adams on the Holy Spirit and Church

"It is so important that we understand we can’t shut down the manifestation of the Spirit in our meetings – it is what distinguishes us".

Julian Adams at TOAM '07 (TT1 on Prophecy) - 10th July 2007.

Derek Prince on Fasting and Revival

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p359.

Derek Prince on Signs and Wonders

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p350.

Derek Prince on Divine Healing

"God expects every sick Christian to seek Him first for healing through faith and by spiritual means".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p344.

Derek Prince on the Laying on of Hands

"Laying on of hands is an act in which one person places his hands upon another person with some definite spiritual purpose".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p339.

Derek Prince on Signs and Wonders

"All true believers have a right to expect that these supernatural signs will accompany and confirm their testimony as, in obedience to Christ's command, they seek to proclaim the good news of the gospel to all men".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p328.

Derek Prince on Word and Spirit in Preaching

"As this Word is ministered to in the power of the Holy Spirit, it is so sharp and so penetrating that it leaves no place anymore for neutrality or compromise".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p325.

Derek Prince on Tongues and Interpretation

"It is God's will for all to speak in tongues; it is therefore also God's will for all to interpret".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p311.

Derek Prince on Charismatic Church Life

"When the Presence and power of the Holy Spirit are publicly manifested through the various believers, the whole life and worship of the congregation are completely transformed".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p308.

Derek Prince on Charismatic Church Life

"The Holy Spirit is never worked up; or comes down or He flows forth from within. In either case His manifestation is free and spontaneous, never laborious or wearisome".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p304.

Derek Prince on Fatherhood of God

"God never usurps the will or the personality of the believer. Satan makes slaves; God makes sons".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p300.

Derek Prince on Charismatic Church Life

"True liberty comes to a congregation in measure as its members acknowledge and yield to the lordship of the Holy Spirit".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p292.

Derek Prince on the Gift of Tongues

"When we come to the end of our own natural strength and understanding, the Holy Spirit can take over our faculties and conduct His own worship and prayer through us".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p274.

Derek Prince on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The baptism in the Holy Spirit gives the believers a foretaste of an altogether new kind of power - a supernatural power that belongs, in it's fullness to the next age".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p269.

Derek Prince on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The key to spiritual power is the baptism in the Holy Spirit".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p265.

Derek Prince on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"As a general principle, wherever people are seeking the gift of the Holy Spirit, a period of instruction from God's Word should always precede any period of prayer. For my own part, if I were allotted thirty minutes to help believers seeking the gift of the Holy Spirit, I would spend at least half that time - the first fifteen minutes - giving scriptural instruction. The next fifteen minutes devoted to prayer would produce a far more positive result than a full thirty minutes given to prayer without any instruction beforehand".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p230.

Derek Prince on Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The essential preparation for believers to receive the Holy Spirit is that they be instructed out of the Scriptures on the nature of God's provision for them and how they may claim this provision through faith in the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p229.

Derek Prince on Baptism of the Spirit and Christ's Enthronement

"(Acts 2:33) Christ first purchased man's redemption by His atoning death and resurrection. Then He ascended to His Father in heaven and there presented the blood that was the evidence and seal of redemption. Upon the Father's acceptance of the blood, Christ received from the Father the gift of the Holy Spirit to pour out upon those who believed in Him".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - pp225-226.

For identical relating of the baptism of the Spirit and ascension of Christ, see Ern Baxter's quote.

Derek Prince on Receiving the Holy Spirit

"In yielding our physical members we no longer seek even to understand intellectually what God asks of us. We merely hand over unreserved control of our physical members and allow God to use them according to His own will and purpose.

The particular member He takes full control of is that unruly member that no man can tame - the tongue. Thus the yielding of our tongue to the Spirit marks the climax of yieldedness, of surrender, of complete obedience. It is by this we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p233.

Rob Rufus on Legalism

"People under law are bound up by a spirit of rejection and they try to tie up others in Pharisaical bondage. They're touchy and competitive - they hate to see other people succeed because that threatens them. We must learn that we are more important than anything we can do or achieve in life. We are not the sum total of our achievements. If people only love us for what we can do for them, we're better off without them. We must understand that God accepts us and then we can be truly free".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (p21).

Rob Rufus on Grace and the Blood of Christ

"The blood of Jesus is not for our examination but for God's! When God told Israel to put the blood of the lamb on the sides and tops of the door frames, this was outside the house. The people were inside the house and could not touch, see or feel the blood. They could not feel the power or effectiveness of it. But the blood wasn't for them - it was for God to examine".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (p18).

Rob Rufus and Empowering Grace

"If we live in the true grace of Godwe will do more than anyone else; we will go further for God, we will go the second mile, we will lay down our lives. When we are empowered by grace, we'll be energized to do great exploits for God".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (p8).

Rob Rufus and the Grace and Identity

"Grace reveals that we are loved, valued and accepted by God as we are. Grace means that God's correction and rebuke does not involve a withdrawal of His acceptance but rather a proof of His love for us".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (pxi).

Rob Rufus and the Grace of God

"Grace rescues us from the syndrome of rejection and insecurity, the tyranny of performance-orientated living and the endless anxiety associated with trying to achieve and earn acceptance by keeping laws and regulations".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (pxi).

Rob Rufus on the Grace of God

"Grace enables us to tap into the realm of unlimited supernatural resources. Unprecidented potential for growth is activated in us when we live in His grace".

Rob Rufus on the Grace of God

"He is never disillusioned with us because He never had any illusions in the first place!".

Rob Rufus on the Grace of God

"When we live in the grace of God, we experience a creative flow, a joy, a spontaneity and an enthusiasm for life; and - we stop trying to live upto some standard that we can never reach, free from the feeling that God is angry with us".

Rob Rufus - "Living in the Grace of God" - (1997) Authentic - (pi).

Kathryn Kuhlman on Grieving the Holy Spirit

"If I knew that the Holy Spirit was grieved, if I knew the Holy Ghost would depart from me, I would never again walk out on this stage. I would never make a pretense of things but in that hour I would be the most ordinary person that ever lived, and nothing would happen. I could say the same words, go through the same form, do the same things, but the secret power is the Holy Ghost.

I cannot use hte Holy Spirit. I can't do it. The Holy Spirit must use the vessel.Understand something. You can have the greatest talent in the world but it will never accomplish anything for God unless the Holy Ghost uses it".

Kathryn Kuhlman cited in "Kathryn Kuhlman - A Spiritual Biography of God's Miracle Worker" by Roberts Liardon - (2005) Whitaker House - (pp128-129).

Kathryn Kuhlman on Facing Death

"The world called me a fool for having given my entire life to One whom I've never seen. I know exactly what I'm going to say when I stand in His Presence and when I look upon that wonderful face of Jesus, I'll just have one thing to say, "I tried". I gave of myself the best I knew how. My redemption will have been perfected when I stand and see Him who made it all possible".

Kathryn Kuhlman cited in "Kathryn Kuhlman - A Spiritual Biography of God's Miracle Worker" by Roberts Liardon - (2005) Whitaker House - (p112).

Kathryn Kuhlman on the Fellowship of the Spirit

"May we never lose sight of the fact that the power manifested through the Spirit-filled life is that of the Holy Spirit and all fruitfulness stems from ... the mighty Person of the Trinity. If ever I know beyond a shadow of doubt that the anointing of the Holy Spirit has been lifted off my life, no longer dwelling within me I will never again stand behind another pulpit, hold another miracle service ... preach a sermon. Why? Because I know wherein lies the secret of the success of this ministry".

Kathryn Kuhlman cited in "Kathryn Kuhlman - A Spiritual Biography of God's Miracle Worker" by Roberts Liardon - (2005) Whitaker House - (pp96-97)

Kathryn Kuhlman on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"On the day of Pentecost they were all filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:1-4) and again there will be such times even in moments such as this, when there will be such oneness in the Spirit, when the Holy Ghost has come upon those in an assembly - those who know absolutely nothing about the Holy Spirit - that waves of glory will come upon them and every person present will be filled with the Holy Spirit and receive that baptism of the Holy Spirit. I believe
that!".

Kathryn Kuhlman cited in "Kathryn Kuhlman - A Spiritual Biography of God's Miracle Worker" by Roberts Liardon - (2005) Whitaker House - (p127).

Derek Prince on Word and Spirit

"Intellectual learning, though useful on it's own level can never be a substitute for the supernatural power and ministry of the Holy Spirit. The more abundantly the Holy Spirit is poured out on God's people, the more this supernatural testimony is strengthened and increased".

Derek Prince - "Foundational Truths for Christian Living" - (2006) Charisma Press - p333.

Paul Hattaway on Missionaries to China

"China today still urgently needs more servants and workers to take the gospel throughout the land. God is looking for people who will stand up and declare "Lord here I am! Please send me!". May our hearts be encouraged by the testimonies of China's Christian martyrs!".

Paul Hattaway - "China's Christian Martyrs" - (2007) - p11.

"Never look at where new Christians are now, look at where they
have come from."

David Devenish, Understanding Islam Training Track 3, Together on a Mission 2007

Steve Bell on Muslims coming to Christ

"Make friends with a Muslim, and help that Muslim become a follower of Jesus... not a Christian."

your testimony"

Ern Baxter on Word and Spirit

"If we don't maintain balance between the didatic and the pneumatic - the Word and the Spirit - we will get off the track. When there is an overemphasis on doctrinal rectitude and conceptual accuracy to the neglect of the inspirational and the pneumatic or the charismatic, the Christian life deteriorates into an intellectual exercise and produces little spiritual food. On the other hand when people get too involved with the experiential and the emotional without hedging it with biblical disciplines and guidelines, they go off into fanaticism and radicalism and the movement eventially dissapates".

Dr Ern Baxter - "The God of Surprises - An Interview with Ern Baxter" - New Wine Magazine December 1980 - (p22).

Ern Baxter on Word and Spirit

"Some Christians who have lived in a dry religion for years are so enamored with this new-found release that the charismatic movement provides that they don't believe there are any perimeters or boundaries. They go off emotionally - and that brings us back to the constant tension between the didactic and the pneumatic".

Dr Ern Baxter - "The God of Surprises - An Interview with Ern Baxter" - New Wine Magazine December 1980 - (p23).

Ern Baxter on Ultimate Triumph

"Ultimately the decree of God is going to be victorious. God has always had a witness and God will always have a people. These people are destined for ultimate victory to co-share with Jesus Christ the sovereignty over the earth. God is going to work it out! I am a biblical optimist and I believe as we walk in the light we will see God's purposes revealed".

Dr Ern Baxter - "The God of Surprises - An Interview with Ern Baxter - New Wine Magazine December 1980 - (p24).

Charles Simpson on Revival

"I believe that we are on the verge of another great awakening. There is a tremendous upheaval already going on within the Church so much so that the people outside the Church are beginning to be aware of it. When that happens the Church will be the means of redeeming society ... I believe we agree among ourselves that the stage is set for the greatest outburst of evangelism and revival across the earth that this generation has even seen".

Charles Simpson - "New Wine Forum - Ready for Restoration" - New Wine Magazine March 1984 - (p23).

Ern Baxter on Spiritual Gifts in Proper Place

"I hope the Church doesn't make the same mistake that for over 50 years I have observed again and again and that is to make the supernatural manifestations an end in themselves.

When Jesus performed miracles, it was in view of getting the attention of the people so that He could say the things His Father sent Him to say. So many times we preach healing and people are helped and touched and healed but we don't take advantage of the platform that it provides for us to say what God really wants said".

Dr Ern Baxter - "New Wine Forum - Ready for Restoration" - New Wine Magazine March 1984 - (p23).

Ern Baxter on Ultimate Triumph

"I believe that what is happening worldwide in this hour is unprecedented. This visitation of the Holy Spirit is not just to teach us to give us goose bumps and teach us to play tambourines and sing new choruses. That is a part of the package but something is much more important than all of that.

What is vastly more important is God's almighty purpose being revealed. At the end of this age He will manifest His glory in the redeemed commuity. This outpouring of blessing - it is an outpouring of authority. God is establishing spiritual authority in the earth that He may in this hour bring into existence His kingdom in power and answer the prayers of multiplied thousands through the centuries who have interceded by crying; "Thy Kingdom Come!".

Dr Ern Baxter - "King of Glory!" - New Wine Magazine April 1982 - (p32)

Ern Baxter on Defining Worship

"Worship is really the occupation of our hearts with God Himself. It does not include prayer for needs and thanksgiving for blessings. In prayer I am taken up with my needs, in praise I am taken up with my thanksgiving but in worship I am taken up with Him. Worship offers; prayer asks".

Dr Ern Baxter - "Before the Throne; An Interview with Ern Baxter - New Wine Magazine - October 1982 - (p20).

Thomas Brookes on the Conversion of the Jews.

"Now Christians, the more great and glorious things you expect from God ... the conversion of the Jews, the conquest of the nations to Christ ... the extraordinary pouring out of the Spirit ... the more holy, yea the more holy in all your ways and actings it becomes you to be".

Thomas Brookes - Works (1867) - (p444).

C H Spurgeon on Latter Rain

"God is about to send times of surprising fertility to His Church ... brethren where we have seen one converted, we may yet see hundreds, where the Word of God has been powerful to scores, it shall be powerful to thousands and where hundreds in past years have seen it, nations shall be converted to Christ ... God the Holy Spirit is not stinted in His power".

C H Spurgeon - (1860) - "A Revival Sermon" - New Park Street Pulpit Volume 6 - (p82).

C H Spurgeon on the Latter Rain

"We look for a day when the dwellers in all lands shall learn righteousness, shall trust in the Saviour, shall worship Thee alone O God and 'shall glorify Thy Name'. The modern nation has greatly dampened the zeal of the church for missions and the sooner it is shown to be unscriptural the better, for the cause of God. It neither consorts with prophecy, honours God nor inspires the church with ardour. Far hence it be driven".

C H Spurgeon - (1885) - Treasure of David Volume 4 - (p102).

Wayne Grudem on Coming Revival

"I mentioned this to Terry Virgo with tears in my eyes as I felt something of the Holy Spirit's Presence in saying this.

Dave Holden on Restoration

"We have known visitations of the Holy Spirit in the last twenty years. The issue of restoration is a sovereign work of God. All these invasions of God are not about making us better - but to make us attractive and visible. God blesses us so that all the ends of the earth may fear Him.

We don't want people to say "how nice" but to either say we're mad or it must be God - they must make a decision. God's purpose is immediate impact particularly through moves of the Holy Spirit".

Ern Baxter on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

"The Holy Spirit is much more than we have generally concluded. His coming was the result of Jesus' sacrifice before God. One of the reasons why the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the whole matter of the Holy Spirit has been so fiercely contested by people who should know better - is because the Holy Spirit is the communication of God to men concerning the work of Jesus Christ in the Presence of God.

When God baptises you in His Holy Spirit, you have received a bell-like communication that Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, has accomplished His great priestly work. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not a peripheral experience for a few freaks. It is the very normal experience of every child of God. Every child of god has the right to the evidence of the golden bells of the baptism of the Holy Spirit to give him experimental evidence that the legal work of the Cross is real".

Dr Ern Baxter - "The Priestly Clothing Series" - "The Robe of the Ephod Transcripts" - personally transcribed and published - (p97).

John Piper on the Aim of Preaching

"That's the essence of preaching (Jer 2:13). The best way to glorify an
inexhaustible fountain is to keep on drinking and to keep on being so satisfied with that fountain that nothing can draw you away. Therefore the task of preaching is to display the all-satisfying glories of God in such a way that the power of all competing pleasures is broken and God Himself holds people captive
".

John Piper - "Preaching as Worship: Meditations on Expository Exultation" - Trinity Evangelical Divinity Journal - 16NS (1995) 29-45

John Piper on the Aim of Preaching

"Therefore we ask - as every preacher must ask who knows this aim of preaching - how can I awaken the slumbering passions of God's people for the surpassing worth of knowing God and His Son Jesus Christ?".
