Smith Wigglesworth the great Evangelist, entered heaven in 1947………but his good works remain here on earth, I pray the same can be said of us all when we go home to be with the Lord. I am so excited to be able to meet Wigglesworth in person in heaven someday. I am reading a book on Wigglesworth that I encourage you to read and get a copy for your Pastor! The book is titled, “A Man Who Walked With God” It is a must for all! My prayer is that I walk as close with God as Wiggleswworth did, My prayer also is that I can preach it like Wigglesworth! Amen!
In a sense, Wigglesworth, no more tried to get people saved than an apple tree “tries” to grow apples or a vine “tries” to produce grapes. he truly was grafted into Christ. Can the same be said of us? His branch was abiding. John 15. His leaves were open to heaven, our yours? He made sure of the daily, continues flow of the sap—–the life of the Spirit. For him, there was a cycle of the life in the Holy Spirit, and he lived that cycle.
A second aspect of his soul winning ability is the baptism in the Spirit. From the day of his conversion, he was a soul winner. In fact, the first person he got saved was his mother—-and later he led his father to the Lord! But he was much more a soul winner after he was baptized in the Holy Spirit. The baptism gave him a keen sense of the value of a soul, which is missing in not only in America, but the world. Oh my! the value of a soul!
Wigglesworth was sadden by those who enjoyed baptism for the pleasure it gave them and did not press on to its primary purpose as declared by Jesus in Acts 1:8: “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me.”
