Sermon By Dr. Jesse M. Hendley

Christians do not know the Word of God today as they
ought to know it. There is a colossal ignorance of the
Word of God among the saints of God, particularly
concerning the searching things of the Word. For
instance, they will sit down and read John 14 about
God's grace, but when it comes to the searching,
cutting things about our responsibility to God, they
don't want them. They would be glad to have Ephesians

devil. We have got to labor with all our might to have
a real revival. Let's have a revival, for Jesus' sake.
I'm not joking about it. I mean business, brethren. I
don't play with souls: I'm after souls for God!
Do you want to see a revival? How many of you want to
see a revival with all your hearts? Every Christian
ought to pray night and day. We ought to have specific
times also, when we kneel and ...
