Smith Wigglesworth’s heart was set on revival, and he knew that cleansing and obedience were vital to the manifestation of the presence and power of the Lord.
Smith was staying at his friend’s (George Stormont) house and this is what Smith said, “God spoke to me on your bed.”
George asked, “What did He say?”
Smith said, “He said Wigglesworth, I am going to burn you up, until there is no more Wigglesworth, only Jesus!”
Standing at the foot of our stairs, Wigglesworth raised his hands to heaven, and with tears running down his cheeks, he cried, “O, God, come and do it! I don’t want them to see me anymore – only Jesus!”
