Spurgeon's, "THE OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT"
When a man is converted to God, it is done in a moment.
Regeneration is an instantaneous work.
Conversion to God, the fruit of regeneration, occupies all
our life, but regeneration itself is effected in an instant.
A man hates God-- the Holy Spirit makes him love God.
A man is opposed to Christ, he hates his gospel, does not
understand it and will not receive it-- the Holy Spirit comes,
puts light into his darkened understanding, takes the chain
from his bondaged will, gives liberty to his conscience, gives
life to his dead soul, so that the voice of conscience is heard,
and the man becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus.
And all this is done, mark you, by the instantaneous
supernatural influence of God the Holy Spirit working
as he wills among the sons of men.
