“The first time He came, He entered by a woman’s womb. And no one saw Him enter.
The next time He comes, ‘every eye Shall see Him!’
The first time He came as a Lamb.
The next time He is coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
The first time He came to redeem.
The next time He is coming to reign.
The first time He came to die.
The next time He is going to raise the dead!
The first time men asked, ‘Where is He that is born king of the Jews?’
The next time He is coming as the King of kings!
The first time He got a crown of thorns.
The next time He will get a crown of glory and of gold (Rev. 14:14).
The first time He came in poverty, to a stable.
The next time He is coming in power.
The first time He had an escort of angels.
The next time ‘He cometh with ten thousand of his saints.’
The first time He came in meekness.
The next time He is coming in majesty!”
-Leonard Ravenhill in “America is too young to die”, pg. 60-61.
“Are not the Church in their present state a standing, public,
perpetual denial of the gospel? Do they not stand out before the
world, as a living, unanswerable contradiction of the gospel; and do
more to harden sinners and lead them into a spirit of caviling and
infidelity, than all the efforts of professed infidels from the
beginning of the world to the present day?”
“A revival of real praying would produce a spiritual revolution.”
“How often God visited the Jewish Church with judgments because they
would not repent and be revived at the call of His prophets! How often
have we seen Churches, and even whole denominations, cursed with a
curse, because they would not wake up and seek the Lord, and pray:
‘Wilt Thou not revive us again, that Thy people may rejoice in
“All it takes to make a preacher is a sermon – but it takes an altar
to make a man of God.” – B.H. Clendennen

for which we shall soon have no names left.” Jan Amos Comenius
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far
one can go.”
“The one thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from
history.” – Leonard Ravenhill
“Every Minister ought to know that if the prayer meetings are
neglected, all his labors are in vain.”

Oh, how I love this video. It’s good, after debating with Atheists and Theists alike for a couple weeks, to step back and remember “I’m not a genius.”
Sapien means wise. Homo means human. Some scientist decided that we are no longer simply wise humans, but we are WISE WISE humans!
Thanks for reading guys. Enjoy the video.
The only thing between us and eternity is life. And that is the most fragile thing on Earth.
I cannot imagine going through life with a fear of death. What constant paranoia must plague the minds of the un-saved…
It would be unbarable. Not knowing of the afterlife, or of your destination.
Here is a list of interesting final words:

“People do not believe lies because they have to, but because
they want to.” – Malcolm Muggeridge
“I can say that I never knew what joy was like until I gave up
pursuing happiness, or cared to live until I chose to die. For
these two discoveries I am beholden to Jesus.”
- Malcolm Muggeridge
“Contrary to what might be expected, I look back on experience
that at the time seemed especially desolating and painful with
particular satisfaction. Indeed, I can say with complete truthfulness
that everything I have learned in my seventy-five years in this world,
everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my experience,
has been through affliction and not through happiness, whether
pursued or attained. In other words, if it were ever possible to
eliminate affliction from our earthly existence by means of some
drug or other medical mumbo jumbo…the result would make it too
banal and trivial to be endurable. This, of course is what the cross
signifies. And it is the Cross that has called me inexorably to
Christ.” – Malcolm Muggeridge
“You cannot tell the truth about people you don’t like, and
therefore the first duty you owe them is silence.”

“It is not the sty that makes the pig, but the pig that makes the
sty.” – Chadwick
“Unless we have WITHIN us that which is ABOVE us, we will
eventually yield to that which is AMONG us.” – Unknown
“A man being rich under the gospel, when it is known that his
money can be used for the glory of God and the conversion of
souls, is demonstration absolute, that he loves the world
supremely. To say that he is rich, but does not set his heart upon
riches–that he continues to retain his wealth, and yet does not set
his heart upon it, is manifestly absurd and false. For, certainly,
nothing but a supreme attachment to it could cause him to hold on
to the possession of it, when every wind is loaded down with cries
and beseechings to send the bread of life to those that are ready
to perish.” – Charles Finney
“A preacher who preaches the truth uncompromisingly will be
asked ‘Does your preaching always have to be so pointy? Does it
always have to be so sharp?’ And of course the answer is no. He
can blunt his message if he’d like, and become just as dull as the
average preacher.” – Jesse Morrell
“It is not our business to make the message acceptable, but to
make it available. We are not to see that they like it, but that they
get it.” -Dr. Vance Havner
“A man who spoke little English gave this description of a sermon
he had heard: he said ‘Big wind. Much lightning. Loud thunder. No
“A wooden key is not so beautiful as a golden one, but if it can
open the door when the golden one cannot, it is more useful.”
- Martin Luther
“That is the best cat which catches the most mice.” – Martin Luther
“No one can be a good preacher to the people who is not willing to
preach in a manner that seems childish and vulgar to some.”
- Martin Luther
“So preach that those who do not fall out with their sins may fall
out with thee.” – Martin Luther
