A blog of quotes from Godly Dead Guys like Charles Spurgeon, JC Ryle, William Wilberforce, Jeremiah Burroughs, John Owen, Matthew Henry, Ichabod Spencer and many others - as long as they were Godly and are now dead.
The value of knowledge- true spiritual knowledge- in the life of faith can hardly be exaggerated. Just as a man on earth is none the richer for an inheritance that comes to him, or a treasure in his field, as long as he does not know of it or does not know how to gain possession of it and utilize it- so the gifts of God's grace cannot bring their full blessing until we know and, in knowing, truly apprehend them.

Let us encourage ourselves my dear friend, let us encourage ourselves with those mighty aids we are to expect in this spiritual warfare, for greater is he that is for us than all that can rise up against us; "The eternal God is our refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deuteronomy 33:27)
