The Text Plus the Holy Spirit, by A.W. Tozer
 

 *The Holy Spirit: The Text Plus the Holy Spirit*
*By A.W.Tozer*

*"So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people,
and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their
mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain."
*--Ezekiel 33:31

When you are trying to find out the condition of a church, do not
just inquire whether it is evangelical. Ask whether it is an
evangelical rationalistic church that says, "The text is enough,"
or whether it is a church that believes that the text plus the
Holy Spirit is enough....

I would rather be part of a small group with inner knowledge than
part of a vast group with only intellectual knowledge. In that
great day of Christ's coming, all that will matter is whether or
not I have been inwardly illuminated, inwardly regenerated,
inwardly purified. Faith Beyond Reason, 30,32.

"I too, Lord, 'would rather be part of a small group with inner
knowledge than part of a vast group with only intellectual
knowledge.' Fill us with Your Spirit and Your presence today.
Amen."
