Wisdom of the Ages – Ralph Erskine

“Faith, without trouble or fighting, is a suspicious faith; for true faith is a fighting, wrestling faith”

Wisdom of the Ages – Ralph Erskine

“O sirs, we will have dead preaching. dead hearing, dead communicating, lifeless work this day if the purchased Spirit does not come!”

Wisdom of the Ages

“What is a man, a minister, a sacrament, a city, a nation, without the Spirit of God? What makes matters so far wrong in a land, but that there is so little of the Spirit with ministers and people? There is no life where the quickening Spirit comes not: O sirs, we will have dead preaching. dead hearing, dead communicating, lifeless work this day if the purchased Spirit does not come! When He comes life comes with Him”

Wisdom of the Ages

“The hypocrite’s joy destroys his sorrow; his faith and false confidence destroys and excludes his repentance; his fear destroys his love; and his pretended love to God destroys his fear of him”
– Ralph Erskine
