“The church used to be a lightning bolt,

now it’s a cruise ship.

We are not marching to Zion –

we are sailing there with ease.

In the apostolic church it says they were all amazed –

and now in our churches everybody wants to be amused.

The church began in the upper room with a bunch of men agonizing, and

it’s ending in the supper room with a bunch of people organizing.

We mistake rattle for revival, and commotion for creation, and action for unction. “

– Leonard Ravenhill, as quoted in Survivalblog.com

But He comes Friend.  Be ready to behold.


Read the Book; make it your stronghold.

Do not this poor prophecy rhyme scold.

Reading helps to remove the blindfold.

Some charts border on the over-bold.

Translation Trouble – 1Ti 1.17

NASB Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only ____ God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
