Jean Oathout- When we hear that Jesus paid the price for our redemption from our sins through His blood shed on Calvary, and we believe and receive it, there is a process called sanctification which takes place.
Father God applies Christ Jesus' blood to us and we're covered and challenged to live out our lives to honor Him. (Google image, Preaching God's Word).

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: People began to weep as they walked along. Some were prostrated by the power of God while they were alone in their fields or at their weaving looms. Some walked the roads at night, unable to sleep because of such deep conviction of sin. (Google image, When God Breaks In).

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: My dear friend, the Rev. Duncan Campbell, minister of the United Free Church of Scotland, was mightily used in the Hebrides revival which began in December 1949 and continued in several waves in succeeding years.
Perhaps no minister of this century experienced so many remarkable manifestations of the power of the Lord. He was not a part of the charismatic movement, and there was no emphasis upon gift manifestations. To the day of his death in 1972 he remained the humble prophet of the Lord. (Google image, John D.

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: About 1830, according to the estimate of Dr. Henry Ward Beecher, at least 100,000 were converted and joined the churches in one year through the Finney-related revivals and their spreading influence.
Probably this was the greatest harvest since Pentecost. (Google image, The secret of Finney's success, by Gordon C. Olson)

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: 1. Power was manifested in Holy Spirit-given conviction. Through Finney's ministry the power of the Lord was manifested in overwhelming conviction of sin and spiritual need.
While one normally thinks of such conviction leading to the convicted person's loss of appetite or desire to sleep, in Finney's ministry people were even more powerfully seized by the Spirit. (Google image, Benny Hinn's Falling under the Holy Spirit).

Lisa Buffaloe- What was done to me in my past by others — the sins they committed against me, the wrong done by them against me . . .
What was done by me — the sins I committed, the wrong turns I made . . .
What was done is replaced by what was done on the cross by Jesus Christ. Through Jesus, what was done is healed, restored, forgiven, and renewed. (Photo credit).
