Charles Finny who more than once reported that people by the hundreds would literally fall out of the pews flat on the floor as he preached.
John Wesley reported in his writings that often 20,000 people would attend the outdoor meetings. Many would climb the trees so they could get a better view of Wesley as he preached. Wesley requested they would come down out of the trees because people were falling to the ground as he preached due to the presence and power of God's Word.
Of course, if you have ever read anything about D L Moodey, R A torrey, Harry Ironside, or George Muler, you know they all had very similar experiences when confronted with the presence of the Lord in prayer. people can be AND SHOULD BE overwhelmed by the presence and power of God AS WE MINISTER THE WORD!
IN THE LAST 40 YEARS OF MINISTRY i HAVE EXPERIENCED MANY TIMES WHERE GODS CONVICTION & SPIRIT HAS FALLEN ON THE LISTENERS AS i PREACHED GODS WORD!
