Key statements made in this teaching…from Leonard Ravenhill.
1)HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE REALLY SEEN A MAN ON FIRE FOR GOD? His experience with that:
“He came in the most broken down automobile Ive ever seen. He was nuts,
pardon the phrase, but he was sanctified nuts. He came in clothes that were almost
worn out. He bought all his clothes at the Salvation Army. This old car
came wheezing up the street, rheumatism in all the wheels and asthma in
the motor. It was sobbing and groaning as it came up the hill… but he was giving
thousands of dollars away to missions!”
2)GOD HAS MANY THINGS TO SHOW HIS PEOPLE BUT THEY’RE NOT GROWN UP ENOUGH TO RECEIVE THEM (and this isn’t things of this world, but true spiritual insight).
“You’ve heard me say this and I say it again, I am scared that when I get to the judgment seat and there are a billion people looking on me that God will say to me, “Son I had many things to tell you, but you couldnt bear them. You werent grown up enough.”
— A man leaves his son millions of dollars. He puts a caution in the will, he says,
“You cant spend a dime of this until you are twenty years of age.
This money is all tied up until you have enough sense to use it.” —
I believe Almighty God is saying that to the Church today. Weve toiled, rather weve trifled with gifts of the Spirit. We are far more interested in the gifts of the Spirit than with the Holy Spirit Himself. And God has treasures beyond our comprehension.”
The problem with people not truly receiving the things God is doing now and will do in the days to come is because one, they’ve NEVER truly seen a man on fire with the Spirit of God and two, they’re not mature enough spiritually. They’re still childish in God’s eyes regarding spiritual things. Remember, God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts. (Isa. 55:8-9)
