Missionary Quotations: Leonard Ravenhill6

have lost sight of the fact that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has defeated the roaring lion of hell, and therefore every anointed Samson or Gideon or church can also slay the lion of hell. Though wicked men are doing wickedly, God’s promise to us is that “the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32).”

  1. I believe this post is God’s perfect timing, especially after I read the Scripture that you used:

    “the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits” (Daniel 11: 32). This Scripture jogged my memory: I had a very interesting dream last night; I will tell you later.

    That is a very good painting of The Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

  3. Belinda: Here is the dream that I had last night. Looks like it was God’s perfect timing for you to post something by Leonard Ravenhill and for me to have the dream.

    When I woke up this morning, I completely forgot about the dream that I had last night (early this morning). After I read the scripture from Daniel 11: 32, then I began to remember the dream. Praise the Lord. Thanks for posting this.

    • I forgot to put my dream on the above comment. Here is the dream:


      • After reading your dream this is the scripture that came to me, as I wrote on your post:
        “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.” James 5:16-18
        Prayer is a powerful weapon and an awesome privilege.

        God bless!

    • Praise the Lord, I just love the way He works. He is so merciful, so good to us.

      • I like that scripture about Elijah. Elijah is also known as the Prophet of Fire:

        I Kings 18: 38-39: “Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.”

      • Amen. “Let the God who answers by fire be God…”

I would love to hear your thoughts...
