Страница 112 - In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face ; the hair of my flesh stood up : it stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof : an image was before mine eyes ; there was silence, and I heard a voice...
Страница 302 - And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh ; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Страница 2 - The stranger at my fireside cannot see The forms I see, nor hear the sounds I hear; He but perceives what is; while unto me All that has been is visible and clear.
Страница 304 - ... perplexed you. You have not reached the goal that you aimed at. You have not accomplished the great task that you set for yourself. You are still on the way ; and perhaps your journey must end now, — nowhere, — in the dark. Well, it was in one of these long, lonely nights that this story came to me.

In a thousand ways unknown to us he gives us strength for the conflict and peace of mind in our perplexity. By unspoken words he talks with us, and our souls and his hold intimate communion. Were that not true, then our lives would be heavily and darkly overshadowed. But it is true, and we are compelled by many an unexplained experience to believe it. It...
Страница 315 - ... days of Paul. There is hardly a household which cannot relate an occurrence of a like nature, and we are forced to the conclusion that there are more beings who are invisible than there are beings visible, and that the visible and invisible are supplied with means of communicating with each other. It is useless for the Christian to declare that such miracles, if they are miracles, were confined to the limits of a given period. He must accept what happens to-day as well as what happened centuries...

It is useless for the Christian to declare that such miracles, if they are miracles, were confined to the limits of a given period. He must accept what happens to-day as well as what happened centuries ago. God has not changed His relations to men, and the necessities of human nature are just as urgent as ever. If angels talked with mortals from the time of Adam to the days succeeding the crucifixion,...
Страница 315 - We must either throw the Bible overboard as a tissue of imaginary events, or believe, as every generation has believed, that the great falsehood of history is that there is "a bourne from whence no traveler returns." If God is really a presence in the world, then He must be a continually-revealing presence. There is a kind of absurdity in the statement that He has spoken, but refuses to do so any more. If He ever spoke, it is certainly true that He still speaks. He has neither become indifferent,...
Страница 28 - Now, concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you. ignorant. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
