Apostles and Prophets
“God sent His prophets—HIS true ministers, pleading with a world, warning this world of the inevitable result of its folly of rebellion.”
“Most people today are like a person in a deep sleep, dreaming a pleasant dream. When one tries to arouse him to tell him his house is on fire and he’s about to be burned up, he drowsily protests:”
“Don’t! Don’t wake me up! Go’ way—let me sleep!”
“Well, listen! Your house is on fire!”
“ We have to warn the people—or have their blood required at our hand! God Almighty commands us his Servants , ‘CRY ALOUD, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgressions.’ (Isa. 58:1). God doesn’t say ‘whisper.’ He does not say, ‘preach soft and smooth things soothingly.’ He tells us to lift up our voice—to CRY ALOUD!—to THUNDER forth His warning!”
“The time for soft, dainty, purring, soothing preaching is past!”
“ do not talk softly, soothingly, on the air. CRY ALOUD!
