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
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?
Arno Stegen shares his sermon on the topic of having the love of God in our lifes. He speaks of many practical ways to show if we do nor do not have the love of God in our heart. All ministry, work, and serving God can be vain without it being done out of love from the heart for God. This is a very challenging and strong sermon on a much needed topic to be shared.
Lou Sutera is honest with the hearers sharing how desperately wicked society has become around us. His main point is showing how little esteemed God is and how society and sadly Christians have "humanized God" to make Him as we are. Revival is utmost and necessary to see God as He truly is! This message is a clarion call for the need and urgency we should have.
Vance Havner shares about how the people of our day have desired to steady the ark, but what we need is to get back to God's ways and His principles. Church needs to get back to God. We have been so anxious to be relevant we have lost our reverence towards God.
Milton Green shares a very strong penetrating message about the state of the church in the modern day. The devil and the powers of darkness have been having much control and infiltration into the church in the modern day. A much needed message to hear of things to come.
"We stand in great danger of being satisfied." Denny Kenaston's heart was burdened to have real revival and to motivate further prayer for it. He warned against dead orthodoxy (correct doctrine without life) and even enjoying God's blessings so as to not pursue God's best. The inspiration for the address came from Duncan Campbell's "When God Stepped Down", an accounting of the amazing Hebrides revival around 1952.
Carter Conlon delivers a powerful stirring rebuke and exhortation to this generation to seek God with a whole heart. There is misuse of the things of God in the churches and a lack of regard for the holiness of God in America. There are terrible times coming for America and this message proves a warning to many preachers who are preaching soft, small, slick messages in these last days.
Brother Zac looks at the very dangerous imbalance of holiness preaching taken to a extreme. This message serves as a gentle warning in love to many who have strong convictions that go past what God calls and leads. We need zealous strong individuals that display the compassion of God but a unyielding desire for truth.
Brother Gerhard shares from a burden of the Holy Ghost about brokeness in the Christian life. This message will move and challenge you. He shares personal stories about how the Lord has dealt in his life and some principles from scripture of how we can begin to share the burden of God in our life.
Ian Paisley shares with a holy burden his passion and desire to see a revival and awakening in Ulster. Revival is when God makes bare His arm! Oh that we might see days of God working admist men again. The center of revival is in glorifying the Son of God and the work of the cross.
Wilkerson delivers this powerful sermon on the sobering reality of the day of Judgement where all men will have to stand before God and give account. Preaching on this eternal doctrine has disappeared from Christendom! What a needed and important truth to hear in our day.
