The Outpouring of the Spirit

“The hour is coming, and has now come, when the Holy Spirit will be poured out again in such a wonderful manner, that many will go here and there to increase knowledge—the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the surface of the great deep; when His kingdom will come, and His will, will be done on earth, even as it is in heaven. We are not going to be dragging on forever like Pharaoh, without wheels on his chariot. My heart exults, and my eyes flash with the thought that very likely I will live to see the outpouring of the Spirit; when ‘the sons and the daughters of God again will prophesy, and the young men will see visions, and the old men will dream dreams.’ Perhaps there will be no miraculous gifts for they will not be required; but yet there will be such a miraculous amount of holiness, such an extraordinary fervor of prayer, such a real communion with God, and so much vital religion, and such a spread of the doctrines of the cross, that everyone will see that truly the Holy Spirit is poured out like water, and the rains are descending from above. For that, let us pray; let us continually work for it, and seek it of God.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
