Page 278 - Spirit is given to every man to profit withal ; for to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom, to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit ; to another faith by the same Spirit, to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit, to 'another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another divers kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But all these worketh that one and the self-same Spirit, dividing to every man severally...
Page 298 - And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh ; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.
Page 110 - In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face ; the hair of my flesh stood up : it stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof : an image was before mine eyes ; there was silence, and I heard a voice...
Page 2 - The stranger at my fireside cannot see The forms I see, nor hear the sounds I hear; He but perceives what is; while unto me All that has been is visible and clear.
Page 311 - ... and that the visible and invisible are supplied with means of communicating with each other. It is useless for the Christian to declare that such miracles, if they are miracles, were confined to the limits of a given period. He must accept what happens to-day as well as what happened centuries ago. God has not changed His relations to men, and the necessities of human nature are just as urgent as ever. If angels talked with mortals from the time of Adam to the days succeeding the crucifixion,...
Page 311 - ... who has gone is as conscious of our doubts and fears as when he was at our side. Neither his affection nor his power to aid has been abated. In a thousand ways unknown to us he gives us strength for the conflict and peace of mind in our perplexity. By unspoken words he talks with us, and our souls and his hold intimate communion. Were that not true, then our lives would be heavily and darkly overshadowed. But it is true, and we are compelled by many an unexplained experience to believe it. It...
Page 300 - I had studied and loved the curious tales of the 'Three Wise Men of the East' as they are told in the 'Golden Legend' of Jacobus de Voragine and other mediaeval books. But of the Fourth Wise Man I had never heard until that night. Then I saw him distinctly, moving through the shadows in a little circle of light. His countenance was as clear as the memory of my father's face as I saw him for the last time a few months before. The narrative of his journeyings and trials and disappointments ran without...
Page 311 - We must either throw the Bible overboard as a tissue of imaginary events, or believe, as every generation has believed, that the great falsehood of history is that there is "a bourne from whence no traveler returns." If God is really a presence in the world, then He must be a continually-revealing presence. There is a kind of absurdity in the statement that He has spoken, but refuses to do so any more. If He ever spoke, it is certainly true that He still speaks. He has neither become indifferent,...
Page 311 - ... days of Paul. There is hardly a household which cannot relate an occurrence of a like nature, and we are forced to the conclusion that there are more beings who are invisible than there are beings visible, and that the visible and invisible are supplied with means of communicating with each other. It is useless for the Christian to declare that such miracles, if they are miracles, were confined to the limits of a given period. He must accept what happens to-day as well as what happened centuries...
Page 28 - Now, concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you. ignorant. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
