Forgotten Pentecostal Phrases

with 4 comments

There Are Some Old Pentecostal Phrases Not Often Heard Today.

When I was a boy, it was common to hear the saints use phrases like:

1. If the Lord wills!

2. If the Lord tarrys!

3. I plead the blood!

1Cor. 4:19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

1Cor. 16:7 For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.

James 4:15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

I wonder why more of us don’t still include God into our plans and in our speech? Where or when did we lose that awareness? Is it possible to rekindle old fires?

  1. Bro. Ballestero,

    That is so true!! You hardly ever hear these phrases anymore! We need to read these scriptures to our saints and hopefully they will grab onto them!! I just said to a young saint 2 days ago about them trying to buy a certain house..”If God wills!” We were raised on these things and I still ask for God to lead me even after 40 + yrs living for God!! He has led me to some wonderful blessings in my life!
    Looking forward to your ministry next month here in the N.W.!! The boys loved the gift !!! Thanks again!!! Sis Luke
