|Five Reasons Why I Do Not Seek the Gift of Tongues | Elmer E. Shelhamer||Holy Spirit|
We do not for one moment deny that there is a gift of tongues.... I would not dare do as many brethren, who denounce the entire Tongues movement as of the devil. I have found some of these people nearer heaven than some who oppose them.

Whether we are stable or easily unravel, stiff or delicate, able to stretch to meet a life of continual strain or remaining constant in places of high demand, His purposes surpass our understanding. Will we be but yielding fabric in the Master's hands?

I did the stupidest thing—attempt to pull the truck back with my own strength—of course, that didn't help anything. The truck bucked over the curb, and then plowed into the aluminum-extruded, glass-fronted entryway... ka-BOOOOM!

Oh, that men would put away their childish things! That they would seriously and humbly hunger for truth and spiritual reality! That they would... abhor the deadly simplicity of arranging things as they see best.... Most people are proving they are playing at religion.

But in all this rejoicing, revealed to our wondering eyes, was a solemn reminder to those brethren of a different dispensation, so long ago, of the absolute need of doing the work of God as He wants it done.

|Foundation Truth, Number 7 (Autumn 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002||Holy Spirit|
Making up your mind and setting your will, in themselves, are necessary to do the works of man; but, if you want to do the works of God, the work of God must be done in you first, in all its completeness.

|Four Outpourings of the Spirit | George D. Watson, 1891||Holy Spirit|
Some people today... have been pardoned, but have not got over into the Acts of the Apostles.... But a real Bible Christian has been through repentance at Sinai, has been reconciled at the cross of Christ, and has been baptized with the Holy Ghost at Pentecost.

|Holy Spirit Baptism and The Second Cleansing | Russell R. Byrum, 1923||Holy Spirit|
Only those who have received the blessed Holy Spirit of God into their hearts, the abiding Comforter, can know the sweetness of closest communion with God and the greatest measure of the joy of His presence.

|Holy Spirit Obedience | Tyler A. Schones, 2012||Holy Spirit|
The burden of this message is to express the... necessity of the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring about this type of obedience that Jesus came to produce in us, and a solemn warning against any attempt of the flesh to fulfill this calling.

|Ishmael | Mark P. Spinks||Holy Spirit|
Our Ishmaels exist because we listen to some voice other than that of the Holy Spirit. Our motives may be pure, and the cause laudable, but we are badly out of our depth when we lean on human wisdom and understanding to attempt the work of God.

|Loaded Words | George D. Watson, 1896||Holy Spirit|
All words are loaded with the quality of the soul out of which they proceed. It is eternally impossible for God to utter one word that is not loaded with divinity; and... it is impossible for the devil to utter one word which does not, in some way, contain a lie.

|Wineskins for New Wine | Tyler A. Schones, 2017||Holy Spirit|
God's kingdom isn't outward, so we can't put outward definitions on it.... It's about God moving and working. He's a living, active God. So a certain outward form might have been good for a season, but He might want to change things in the future.
