13. Quotes from Leonard Ravenhill's Personal Letters


Quotes from Leonard Ravenhill's Personal Letters, number 13

Looking unto Jesus is a classic by Isaac Ambrose. I hope that the copy sent to us by Ravenhill was not lost in the mail, as he suggested might have happened. That would have been costly. We do have a copy now. My friends Vali and Eliza translated and published it in Romanian. Eliza gave 1 ½ years full-time to translation. It has 1008 pages. One 80-year-old lady wrote them: “I am reading it the second time through my tears.” The old saints loved the great books.

The David mentioned in the letter is Len and Martha’s son and a friend of ours. He follows in his dad’s footsteps. Look for his sermons and books on the internet.

June 3: David has gone back to AZ. He leaves for Singapore next week.

Wall Street inside trading on one hand and the other drug dealing. Washingon – lies and more lies. There is a big vacuum in the nation at this point. A Holy Spirit-filled pulpit could meet its need.  The only one to judge this world is He who created it. He who bore its sin. He who is the only blessed and holy potentate, blessed forevermore. There will be no out-of-court settlements.

Did the book “Looking Unto Jesus” arrive? Maybe stolen. Could we send another copy? …

I don’t know what the “go-east” thing is that Len mentions in the next letter. It’s hard to keep up with all the fads that come and go. Do any of you remember PTL? In its day, it was an immensely popular “Christian” TV production. Jimmy Bakker, its protagonist, went to jail for the misuse of $60,000,000.

July 4: One wonders, will the 200 million dollars spent on PTL be the greatest ministry burn-out at the judgment seat… all wood, hay and stubble. A brother sent me the New Definitive Life of Jonathan Edwards. The book is Banner of Truth. I will send you a copy, if you wish and will be sure to get it.

Now we are told there are 1 million people in the US afflicted with AIDS. Some people request to hold a crucifix when they die, others a Bible. Do the sex maniacs want to hold a copy of Playboy when they cross over? I doubt it.

There is a go-east hear here this week… youth meetings at 11:30 p.m. Why? What acceleration there is in iniquity! Where is the voice God will yet arise to scatter His enemies? God grant you glorious revelation…
