Asa Alonzo Allen, better known as A.A. Allen, was a man who loved Jesus with all of his heart. His sermons as a traveling minister spoke of this and, more specifically, on the power of God. He preached of miracles, the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and on the calling God places on the lives of Christians everywhere. Here are my top 10 quotes from Reverend A.A. Allen:
“Many deny that such a thing as sin really exists. (Some even deny the reality of sickness. These will accept a handsome fee for teaching you that a pain is not a pain!) Instead of salvation by the blood of Jesus, these modern pulpiteers talk of “works” and “character.” Instead of basing their lectures upon the Bible, the inspired Word of God, they talk glowingly about the latest theories of science and reason.”*
“God has never resorted to natural means or to man’s methods, as good as they may seem to be, or as badly as you may want them.”*
“If you are walking with Jesus, in the Spirit, you need not fear going too far. No believer has gone as far as God wants him to go.”
“And if God is going to use man, He is going to use him in such a way the Spirit of God can operate through him. Man won’t do the work, but the Spirit and power of the Holy Ghost will do it through man.”*
“How can a man yield to God so that He can use him to do His work?”*
“God cannot use a man unless he is saved, born again, washed in the blood, sanctified, and full of the Holy Ghost.”*
“Do you want God to use you? Then you must present your body. God makes two requirements for an acceptable sacrifice. It must be HOLY and it must be HIS.”
“From the time of my conversion, I realized my need of much study if ever I were to fulfill the call of God upon my life. Therefore, I spent many hours reading the Bible, and seeking to understand its message and meaning.”
“Before one can walk as Christ walked, and talk as He talked, he must first begin to think as Christ thought.”
“God uses yielded vessels that are clean, filled, and anointed.”*
