"Apostle of Faith"
Raising the dead was only one amazing facet of the ministry of Smith Wigglesworth. This great apostle of faith walked in such an astounding measure of God's anointing that the miraculous following his ministry was only secondary to it. In his lifetime, this onetime plumber would give new meaning to the word "adventure." "Only believe!" To Wigglesworth, simple obedience to what one believed was not an extraordinary featóit was simply the fruit of it. His own faith was said to be unflinching and sometimes ruthless. But he was also said to possess an unusual teaching anointing and a keen sense of compassionóthe fruit of which produced countless salvations and miracles in his ministry every day. The same power Wigglesworth walked in is here for us today!
· at the beginning of his ministry, begged others to
preach in his
place because of shyness.
· was so hungry to speak in other tongues, that he
disrupted a service
and the minister three times and was escorted out by the ushers.
· when he did speak in other tongues, he interrupted
the minister again,
took over the pulpit, and 50 people were baptized in the Holy Spirit
as he preached. The next day, the newspapers wrote a front page
account of the story!
