  7. 7. David Brainerd August 8, 1745“In the afternoon I preached to the Indians uponLuke 15:16-23. There was much visible concernamong them, while I was discoursing publicly….The power of God seemed to descend upon theassembly ‘like a mighty rushing wind,’ and with anastonishing energy bore down all before it. “I stood amazed at the influence, which seizedthe audience almost universally…. Almost allpersons of all ages were bowed down with concerntogether, and scarcely one was able to withstandthe shock of this surprising operation.”
  8. 8. Capt. Thomas WebbFirst Methodist Sermon in America (1766) “The words of the text were written by the Apostles after the act of justification has passed on them. But you see, my friends, this was not enough for them. They must receive the Holy Ghost after this. So must you. You must be sanctified. But you are not. You are only Christians in part. You have not received the Holy Ghost. I know it. I can feel your spirits hanging about me like so much dead flesh.”
