Selected Verses:

Isaiah 12.  And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.  2Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.  3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.  4And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.  5Sing unto the Lord for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.  6Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.


Here’s the picture that Sister Galeoto read about.  I suppose you all know what Psalm it is that she read, or don’t you?...  Pardon?...  Isaiah 12, yes.  But it’s a perfect picture of a real good God-desired and God-made Pentecostal meeting.  And it’s a perfect picture of a Pentecostal saint.  You notice the finishing touches are very interesting.  It’s a command of God to every one of us to shout aloud, “cry out” aloud. 

When I first came into a Pentecostal meeting and I heard them crying, I said, “Well, these women are hysterical.”  I thought they were just imitating one another, each one wanted to scream louder than the other.  But you know, after I discovered the way, I screamed louder than they did.  I cried and I praised the Lord in every meeting until I was hoarse.  And I found out that that was the real way that God will move upon His people if He really has His way.  And this Psalm, or this prophecy, is particularly interesting because it shows us the way that God takes.

Selected Quotes:

speaker icon I’ve travelled around the world twice now, and visited many different nations and many different assemblies of saints.  And everywhere I find that Almighty God manifests Himself in exactly the same way.  The very first thing He does is to lead men to repentance and to cleansing.  That’s how this word begins: “In that day thou shalt say, ‘I’m not afraid anymore of you, Lord.  Oh, thank God, I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ, because you were angry with me.’”

speaker icon We stand for a lot of foolishness, a lot of sin, a lot of carelessness.  We call it a “trifle.”  But in the sight of God, there is no trifling sin, no sir!  He deals with every sin alike: He crucifies it.  And repentance means that I do with my sin what God did with it.  I accept His sentence, and I accept not only His sentence, but the execution of the sentence.  Oh, only when I’m dead with Him will I also live with Him!

speaker icon Oh, this wonderful comfort of God, hallelujah! not like we comfort people.  Wigglesworth used to say, “Human sympathy is of the devil.”  And I think he was ninety nine and forty four one hundredths percent true.  You don’t get anything that way.  You pat people on the back and you say, “I’m so sorry for you.” 

Like a woman said to me when I said, “I’ve just gone through a great trial.”  She says, “Tell me about it.  I’m sure I’ll feel sorry for you.”  I told her that I was in need of money.  I needed six bucks.  “Well, I’ll feel sorry.”  She felt sorry for me, but that didn’t give me the money.  That’s the way man comforts.  But God gives you “beauty for ashes.”

speaker iconFor the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation.”  We talk about being saved, but you know, to be really saved means to be made a new creation in Christ Jesus.  That’s what God does for us.  And now it isn’t a feeling, or a certain line of thoughts that saves me, or belonging to a church, but to be united to Almighty God and have Him be united to me.

speaker icon Beloved, that’s what the tests are for: to make us “draw water out of the wells of salvation,” to make us know Jesus Christ.  And faith brings that water out of the fountain.  Oh, that fountain of living water is waiting for takers, glory to God!


An illustration from the guillotine.  “My head’s gone.  Is your head gone?  Have you been executed?  That’s the question.  Has your old man…?  Oh, no, he ain’t been crucified: he’s too nice.  He’s too nice a fellow.”    (from 3:05)

The enemies of the cross of Christ in a Pentecostal parade.  “The Apostle Paul, writing to the Philippians says ‘You’re enemies of the cross of Christ…’  46,000 Pentecostal people marched up 5th Avenue, but you couldn’t tell they were Pentecostal, except a few.  They had floats just like the world.”    (from 5:23)

The story of Louie the gangster.  A slightly expanded version of this story appears as an illustration in recording 51B.    (from 7:17)

An incomplete baptism.  “Isn’t that our trouble?  We don’t really want to be delivered…  He said, ‘Well, this is the hand I swing my tomahawk with.’  And so he didn’t want that baptized.”    (from 10:32)

The infilling of a Chicago dentist.  “It took from ten o’clock at night until two in the morning…  It look a long time…  And I tell you, that man was transformed.  And months later, I met him in a convention in Chicago, and I said, ‘Doctor, how is it?’  He said, ‘The only thing I can say is: filled with God!’”    (from 15:03)

Healing faith from the 27th Psalm.     (from 20:02)

A personal testimony of healing.      (from 22:13)

Communists from the mountains of Yugoslavia who could not comprehend a faucet.  “They had never seen a faucet that you could turn and get water out of…  What did they do?  They chopped it off, they took it to their homes, and nailed it to a tree.  That’s what Christians do.  They substitute a circus for the power of God.”    (from 24:06)
