Post details: Back!

Hello! Remember me? ... Trent.

Just finally finding a hour to get caught up on email and stuff. I have bunches to blog about, but for now, I am rushing to post this nugget that Len sent to my email in-box a while ago ... I finally read it!

I hope it blesses you off, like it did me!

The only time you can really say that 'Christ is all I need' is when Christ is all you have.

If Jesus had preached the same message that ministers preach today, He would never have been crucified.

A popular evangelist reaches your emotions. A true prophet reaches your conscience.

The last words of Jesus to the church (in Revelation) were 'Repent!'

A true shepherd leads the way. He does not merely point the way.

Your doctrine can be as straight as a gun barrel—and just as empty!

John the Baptist never performed any miracles. Yet, he was greater than any of the Old Testament prophets.

I doubt that more than two percent of professing Christians in the United States are truly born again.

Our God is a consuming fire. He consumes pride, lust, materialism, and other sin.

There are only two kinds of persons: those dead in sin and those dead to sin.

[Concerning the darkness that has enveloped most of Christendom:] When you're sitting in a dark room, you can either sit and curse the darkness—or you can light a candle.

Children can tell you what Channel 7 says, but not what Matthew 7 says.

Some women will spend thirty minutes to an hour preparing for church externally (putting on special clothes and makeup, etc.). What would happen if we all spent the same amount of time preparing internally for church—with prayer and meditation?

Maturity comes from obedience, not necessarily from age.

What good does it do to speak in tongues on Sunday if you have been using your tongue during the week to curse and gossip?

The Bible is either absolute, or it’s obsolete.

Why do we expect to be better treated in this world than Jesus was?

Today's church wants to be raptured from responsibility.

Testimonies are wonderful. But, so often our lives don't fit our testimonies.

[Concerning one of the new movements in the church that was causing a stir among Christians:] There's also a stir when the circus comes to town.

My main ambition in life is to be on the Devil’s most wanted list.

You can’t develop character by reading books. You develop it from conflict.

When there’s something in the Bible that churches don’t like, they call it 'legalism.'

We can't serve God by proxy.

We must do what we can do for God before He will give us the power to do what we can't do.

There's a difference between changing your opinion and changing your lifestyle.

Our seminaries today are turning out dead men.

How can you pull down strongholds of Satan if you don’t even have the strength to turn off your TV?

Everyone recognizes that Stephen was Spirit-filled when he was performing wonders. Yet, he was just as Spirit-filled when he was being stoned to death.

If a Christian is not having tribulation in the world, there's something wrong!

[Concerning the fixation that today's church has with numbers, with growth at any price:] The church has paid a terrible price for statistics!

Any method of evangelism will work—if God is in it.

Church unity comes from corporate humility.

You can have all of your doctrines right—yet still not have the presence of God.

Many pastors criticize me for taking the Gospel so seriously. But do they really think that on Judgment Day Christ will chastise me, saying, 'Leonard, you took Me too seriously'?

You can know a lot about the atonement, and yet receive no benefit from it.

If the whole church goes off into deception, that will in no way excuse us for not following Christ.

You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there's a fire. Likewise, if your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it. The community will already know it.

Yes! I remember you! lol I too, have been trying desperately to get back over here. My plate is over flowing with responsibilities, and with archaic dial up, I'm easily frustrated with it taking 60 minutes for 15 minutes of work :oP.

God has been putting things on my heart, too, and I'm hoping He'll give me the where with all to post. We'll see.

I enjoyed the tidbit of nuggets within the post, Trent. Some I had to go 'hmmm'... but a few I could lol at, knowing that once upon a time, that was me as well.
Hope to bbs!

LOL .. thanks for remembering ... and for keeping the blog going while Pam and I went missing.
If I was stuck using dial-up ... I would install the free browser from and use it. It is soooo fast. You can turn off all the photos, and poof the page only loads text ... if you need to see the pictures after-all, just turn them back on. Opera holds those photos handy so that next time you load that page, it populates most of the page with its memory from last time.

I notice a big difference even using broadband.

Also, Google now has a tool to help stuff load mega-fast can find it at

Yeah, like alot of things you need to take the best and ditch the rest. A bit of leaven in almost any list like that, amen?

Looking forward to your next blog...

Hi Trent. Great to see you back and up and running again! btw: that list is from the pen of a very anointed man of God, Leonard Ravenhill, who past into glory about ten years ago. He wrote many fine books and was known as one of the most powerful prayer warriors in his generation. He was also a good friend of Dr.A.W.Tozer, - a man I would not hesitate to say was "a prophet in the 20th Century Church."
all the best and Shalom.
