Leonard Ravenhill Taught That The Eternal Destination Of Specific Souls Is Dependent On Our Intercession

“If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be far fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”

(Leonard Ravenhill – “Revival God’s Way” – Page 52, [1983])

  1. In one sense, isn’t that true? Behind every true conversion, there will be plenty of anguished prayer? We know Ravenhill was an Arminian, but as Paul Washer said of him “I’d take Leonard ravenhill any day ovr 20 dead Calvinists” – and he didn’t mean “deceased”. And I’m a 5 point Calvinist who longs to have a fraction of the fire and passion Ravenhill had…

  2. ‎”What do you mean by praying that God will have mercy upon all men, and save them with an everlasting salvation, and then tell the congregation that God has done all He can to save them, and the matter rests with them, whether they will be saved or not?
    If God has done all He can, why pray for Him do more? And if He has not done all He can, why tell the people He has?”
    (William Gadsby)

  3. Ravenhills life spoke even louder than his words I wonder if the modern day arminiam and calvinist lives will say as much for my Fathers Kingdom

    • “Ravenhills life spoke even louder than his words I wonder if the modern day arminiam and calvinist lives will say as much for my Fathers Kingdom.” Ignoring the lack of punctuation and capitalization, your focus on works (fruit) tells the story. Everyone wants results. This is worldly, carnal thinking. Focusing on outward appearances. God looks at the heart. He chooses to soften some and harden others. It is all His choice – not ours. He gives a small measure of faith to some, larger to others and huge to others – and none to others. He creates some to be sheep and other to be goats. Therefore, humble yourself before Him and be thankful He has blessed you with whatever measure of faith you have. Do not ever take credit for it or the good works you have done. They are simply God working through you.
      Philippians 3:8-9, “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.”
