“Mr Whitefield’s sermons and exhortations were close, searching, experimental, awful and awakening…His discourses in the neighboring churches were attended with power from on high, and the kingdom of darkness trembled before the Gospel of Christ.”
May this type of “awful” preaching be used by God today today. May the Gospel of Jesus be proclaimed in such a way that the kingdom of darkness will tremble.
If you have never read Dallimore’s work I can’t recommend it enough. It should be required reading for all pastors.
