SermonIndex.net Classics Podcast
Summary: The work and ministry of SermonIndex can be encapsulated in this one word: Revival. Concepts such as Holiness, Purity, Christ-Likeness, Self-Denial and Discipleship are hardly the goal of much modern preaching. Thus the main thrust of the speakers and articles on the website encourage us towards a reviving of these missing elements of Christianity
Glyn Owen shares on 3 points in this message, 1. Christ shall appear. 2. We shall see him as He is. 3. We shall be like Him. If we are partakers of the divine nature and of the new birth we will be like Him on this earth and when we come to glory in heaven. There is need to see new behavior for those who have experienced the new birth.
Derek Melton speaks powerfully on the subject of the need of doctrinal truth and purity in the last days we live in. There is a great need for glorifying God in all things including the scriptures of God. There needs to be a re-capturing of this urgency to understand spiritual doctrine no matter what theological persuasion we come from, we must meet at the general powerful truths of the Scripture.
"We cannot do anything, without Jesus we can do nothing." The bible does not have any suggestions but commandments. Corrie Ten Boom shares on the subject of spiritual warfare through her experience and the scriptures. We must have Jesus as our foundation and only support we stand on as we contend and resist the demons and the evil one in this earth.
Jack Hyles shares his personal testimony of His filling of the Spirit of God for service in preaching the gospel. He recounts many powerful testimonies of moody, finney, fox, savanrola, and many others who were used by the Spirit of God. He came to a place of utter resignation to God to preach the gospel with power. A very strong testimony of God's dealing with a man.
This is one of Dr. Orr's most well-known messages on Revival and Prayer. This is a must watch video and is very short and to the point. It was spoken before a Campus Crusade for Christ fellowship or gathering. The many years of J. Edwin Orr's ministry and burden for revival really show through in this small sermon on the role of revival and prayer in God's awakening of the redeemed and saving of the lost.
Bill Mcleod covers the subject of the occult showing what things are hidden and beyond the bounds of normal human knowledge. Such occult is demonic and opposed to the counsel and spirit of God. We are to have no fellowship with the hidden things of darkness but rather reprove and uncover these things.
Preached Wednesday, October 22nd at the Revival Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Paul Washer delivers a urgent appeal to the Christians and Churches in North America that many have been believing a false gospel and have false assurance of their salvation. He lists 10 indictments against the modern Church system in America. This is a historical urgent message, tell others and spread the message. We need a reformation and revival of a biblical standard!
David Wilkerson speaks on the greatness of the presence of God, what it truly means to be in the presence of God. He speaks on the great need for a sovereign revival and awakening in our day and how we can prepare and pray for its coming. This message is not only timely in its day but timeless in its truth.
Bill McLeod shares on the subject of a personal revival from the Word of God. He expresses clearly how the subject of revival and renewal is a very biblical topic and is needful for every Christian. He clearly shows how we can have revival, why we need revival and how to have a personal revival.
Where in the life of Christ was one hour of more significance than another? Throughout the New Testament we read of occasions when Jesus' enemies tried to kill him, but were prevented because "His hour had not yet come." What is this "hour" of which the Scriptures speak? Major Ian Thomas says, "It is the hour without which the Lord Jesus would have been born to live in vain." He uses John 12:24, in several translations, to describe the hour on which our salvation rests.
Brother Zac Poonen shares with the leadership meetings with churches on the subject of the "way of cain." It is a strong biblical warning that is apostolic and not preached on in many churches. Some things shared here are absolutely essential for leadership of churches to know.
In this sermon, Oswald Smith helps us answer the question, how can we have revival today? Smith profoundly states that revival is the result of a price paid—it costs to have a revival. He says that we must get right with God, we must travail in prayer, we must preach the word of God, not human opinion, and we must work in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. What are you willing to do to see revival in your life? In the United States? In the world?
Art Katz speaks with authority and prophetic insight on the 2 religions in the world. The one that originates from men and the one that is from God in heaven. There is such importance in these things towards Israel, the cross, separation and death to self.
Do we really love God? What about when the test comes on? Darrell gives examples from his own life and family and how God asked the question of him, "Do you love me with shoes on?" You will look at love for God in a new light after hearing this message.
'Part 1 - The Holy Art of Training Children' commences on lifting the principles of childraising out of the commonplace and making them holy again. Denny Kenaston challenges fathers to repent of unscriptural focuses and embrace the 'beautiful realities of the Word of God.' Raising children is an art, 'a system of principles and methods employed in the creation of making something beautiful.' Are you ready to be a student of training children?
