    "We must never separate the Spirit and the Word. The Spirit speaks to us through the Word; so we should always doubt and query any supposed revelation that is not entirely consistent with the Word of God. Indeed the essence of wisdom is to reject altogether the term “revelation” as far as we are concerned, and speak only of “illumination.” The revelation has been given once and for all, and what we need and what by the grace of God we can have, and do have, is illumination by the Spirit to understand the Word."
    ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones


      “There is a tendency in a lot of theology today and probably in a lot of our own hearts to think that to the extent that we are active, God isn’t and to the extent that God is active, we’re not. And here is where a really broad historic tradition in the Christian faith says, no, to the extent that God is active, you are active. It’s exactly the opposite. He is at work in you, both to will and to do for his own good pleasure. So, yes, we are believing. That is our act. It is our act of faith, but it is not an autonomous act of faith. It is the gift of God. It’s something that God is giving us and that the Holy Spirit is working in us through the gospel.” - Michael Horton

        “True Saving Faith”

        True saving faith is a faith that has its seat in the heart and is roots in the regenerate life. The seed of the faith is implanted by God in the heart in regeneration, and it is only after God has implanted this seed in the heart that man can actively exercise faith. The conscious exercise of it gradually forms a habit, and this becomes a powerful aid in the further exercise of faith. When the Bible speaks of this faith it generally, though not always, refers to it as an activity of man. It may be defined as a certain conviction, wrought in the heart by the Holy Spirit, as to the truth of the gospel, and a hearty reliance on the promises of God in Christ.

          Psalm 150:6

          'Let everything that has breath praise the Lord' NIV

          Ah, I just got the actual meaning of this thread.

          I shall edit this post in due course with more quotes out of scripture.
