Flame-Hearted Men Are The Crying Need Of The Hour!

By Leonard Ravenhill 

    Men aflame are needed for this midnight hour.  The Flame of the living God became the Flame of the human heart to the glorious company in the upper room on the day of Pentecost.  The church began with men in the upper room – agonizing, and is ending with them in the supper room – organizing.  The church began in revival, it is ending in ritual.  It started virile, it is ending sterile.  The charter members of the church were men of heat and no degrees, the church ends with many holding degrees, but no heat!

    Ah, brethren, Flame-hearted men are the crying need of the hour!  Men to be a pillar of fire.  God-guided men to lead a misguided people.  Passionate Pauls to stir timid Timothies.  Men of Flame to outshine and outburn men of name.  We need knights of prayer to lead nights of prayer.  We need true prophets to warn of false profits.  “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).

    The cry is, “Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly…Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep...” (Joel 2:15-17).

    Inspired men are desperately needed!  Believers with Spirit-generated souls are indispensable to this degenerate generation.  The gale of end-time iniquity will blow out mere human flame.

    The wise will understand.  Be alarmed!  The conflict gets stiffer!  This is the night of blight and plight.  Was there ever such an evil hour?  Reiterated effort is the price we have to pay for progress.  As the church goes, so goes the world!
