Leonard Ravenhill

      Leonard Ravenhill became one of the twentieth century's greatest authorities on revival. His message is drastic, fearless, and often radical.

      Appalled by the disparity between the New Testament Church and what passes for the Church today, Ravenhill gives a no-compromise call to the principles of biblical revival.

Are we willing to drink His cup?
      Luke chapter12, verses 49 and 50. I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! I've been going to meetings for over seventy years all over the world-Pentecostal conferences, Methodist conferences, all kinds of conference

Baptism of Fire
      Luke 3:16 We are going to look into the Gospel as recorded by Luke and the third chapter. I suppose most of us can quote John 3:16 without looking at it. How many of us can quote Luke 3:16? It's the other side of the coin, it should be as well known. Well, here it is' in the good King James version. Luke 3 verse 16: "John answered, saying

Branded for Christ
       In a certain sense, all men are strangers to one another. Even friends do not really know each other. To know a man, one must know all the influences of heredity and environment, as well as his countless moral choices that have fashioned him into what he is. Though we do not really know one another, tracing the course of a man's lif

Christ Magnified in My Body - Part 1
      Phillipians 1:20, "According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body..." I used to think that in the second letter to the Corinthians, chapter 5, Paul gives a summary of his theology. He believes that " If we are absent fr

Christ Magnified in My Body - Part 2
      You can have a blast from Hell and not be moved, if you're in the will of God. They'll hurt. How can you get victory if there's no battle? He said "We are more than conquerors through him that loved us. What are you conquering? Charles Wesley has a hymn in which he says, Should all the hosts of death, and powers of hell unknown, Put their mos

Faith Laughs at Impossibilities
      Peter in prison! What a jolt! We are too far removed from the actual scene to catch the atmosphere of dismay the Christians of that day felt. Peter had moved from Pentecost to prison, from jeers to spears. He was guarded by sixteen soldiers. One wonders why such a defenseless man needed such a group to watch him. Could it be that Herod feared

George Fox - The unshakable Shaker
      "The most remarkable incident in modern history perhaps is not the Diet of Worms, still less the battle of Austerlitz or Peterloo, or any other battle. "The most remarkable incident is passed over carelessly by most historians and treated with some degree of ridicule by others - namely, George Fox's making for himself a suit of leather. "No g

Have We No Tears for Revival?
      "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy." (Ps. 126:5). This is the divine edict. This is more than preaching with zeal. This is more than scholarly exposition. This is more than delivering sermons of exegetical exactitude and homiletical perfection. Such a man, whether preacher or pew dweller, is appalled at the shrinking authority of the Church

It Is Finished
      John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar He said, 'It is finished' and He bowed His head and gave up the ghost." I said last week that I'd attempt to talk to you on the three most important words, I believe, in history - IT IS FINISHED. This is one of the seven sayings, as we say, of the Lord Jesus on the cross. Just three w

It is Hell, It is Hell in My Soul
      It is Hell, It is Hell in My Soul No Peace like a river attendeth my way, My sorrows like sea-billows roll. This heart-breaking lot has just taught me to say, It is hell, it is hell in my soul. My sin- O the grief of this guilt in my heart - My anguish, not part, but the whole, All adds up to loss, and I bear it alone; It is hell, it is

John the Baptist and the Fire of God - Part 1
      Luke 3:16 We are going to look into the Gospel as recorded by Luke and the third chapter. I suppose most of us can quote John 3:16 without looking at it. How many of us can quote Luke 3:16? It's the other side of the coin, it should be as well known. Well, here it is... in the good King James version. Luke 3 verse 16: "John answered, sayin

John the Baptist and the Fire of God - Part 2
      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 couldn't bear them. You weren't grown up enough." -- A man leaves his son millions of dollars. He puts a caution in the will, he says, "Yo

More than Conquerors
      Romans Chapter 8. Read verse 37: "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." This 8th chapter, as many of you know, begins a new section in this wonderful epistle to the Romans. The 7th chapter is a chapter of gloom, the 8th chapter is a chapter of glory. The 7th chapter is a chapter of condemnation, t

No Kiss
      Luke 7:36 - 47 "...whom little is forgiven... loveth little." I might suggest that this was the most exciting day in the life of this man, Simon the Pharisee. He had managed to get the most amazing man in history into his home. I am quite sure Simon thought to filter the number of people he would have come into the place to eat. So his fir

      Lord Montgomery, that unpredictable British field Marshall, said recently that England went into the Second World War equipped to fight the First World War. This was a polite way of saying that in World War II England was way behind the times in battle equipment and strategy. When Sir Christopher Wren designed the great St. Paul's cathedral in

Revival Series - Lecture #1
      Revival......another definition would be to recover, repair or restore. Hosea 10:12 says: "Sow to yourself in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord till He come and reign righteousness upon you." What is fallow ground? Fallow ground is ground that has been fruitful, and then it has been pl

The Power of His Resurrection
      Phillipians 3:10 Philippians the third chapter and verse ten: "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;" There are obviously four statements in this verse: First, "that I may know Him." Second, "and the power of His resurrection." Third, "the fel

Today's Sleeping Giant
      Solemnly and slowly, with his index finger extended, Napoleon Bonaparte outlined a great stretch of country on a map of the world. "There," he growled, "is a sleeping giant. Let him sleep! If he wakes, he will shake the world." That sleeping giant was China. Today, Bonaparte's prophecy of some one hundred and fifty years ago makes sense. Today

      The Cinderella of the Church today is the prayer meeting. This handmaid of the Lord is unloved and unwooed because she is not dripping with pearls of intellectualism, nor glamorous with the silks of philosophy, neither is she enchanting with the tiara of psychology. She wears the homespuns of sincerity and humility and so is not afraid to kneel!

Weeping between the porch and the altar - Part 1
      I'm not really going to preach a sermon this morning, but I want to have a launching pad... Joel 1:13 "Gird yourselves, and lament ye priests, howl ye ministers of the altar. Come, lay all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God. For the meat offering and the drink offering is witholden from the house of your God. Sanctify ye a fast, call a sole
