- “Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3

“Does not mean rant, noise, or ruthless will. It is varied in manifestation but always it burns, kindles, & glows. It is religion at white-heat” (Samuel Chadwick, The Way to Pentecost , mid 1800’s)
“The Spirit of God dwells in the Spirit of Man to guide the mind into all truth” (Samuel Chadwick, The Way to Pentecost , mid 1800’s)
Heart & Mind Awakening
“A conviction of need, A revelation of grace, A hunger & a search, An act of faith, An assurance of cleansing, A courage to persevere despite hardship” (Samuel Chadwick, The Way to Pentecost , mid 1800’s) We think he actually meant some sort of second spiritual experience after conversion (commonly referred to by some groups as ‘2nd blessing’ or ‘baptism of the Holy Spirit’), but from a Biblical perspective is better equated with actual one time only ‘regeneration’ by the spirit in ‘genuine’ conversion .[Editor]

It has a backlash that follows it, a labeling form veil-covered people, or a deserting of friends and fellowships – and most aren’t willing to pay the price for it. You can only become the battle-ax of God in a nation based on who you are privately and how vulnerable you are to the hand of God” (Roberts Liardon, p399 God’s Generals II, Whittaker House, New Kensington, 2003)
“[Genuine Gifts] of the Sp give a supernatural power to the works of sanctified natural endowments, so that men are challenged to see and consider cause and effect, and find there is nothing in the natural man to account for what is manifestly of God.” (Samuel Chadwick, The Way to Pentecost , mid 1800’s)
UNDER GRACE, NOT UNDER LAW
