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
Paris Reidhead preaches what could be called one of the most influntial sermons of the 20th century. The real point of this sermon is an indictment of individuals and organizations practising humanism behind a mask of Christianity! "This sermon should be preached on a regular basis in every church in America!"
Vance Havner in this sermon shows how many Christians are getting used to the apostasy and declension in Christianity in our day. Havner calls us afresh to see the situation how God sees it and to act as light's in a perverse and wicked generation. "We're living in the closing chapter of an age dominated by the prince and powers of darkness. And men do love darkness rather than light. I want to warn you tonight the best way I know how. Of a slow and subtle and sinister brainwashing process."
David Wilkerson delivers a very sobering message on the reality of hell. Barely any preachers these days would even dare to preach on this subject but how sad that falls from the new testament normal of hell as a normal doctrine taught and discussed. Jesus spoke of hell more then heaven, listen carefully and know that there is a eternal hell.
Erlo Stegen speaks of the need for the work of the cross in the life of the believer before we can experience pentecost. He speaks of the true fruit of what a crucified life bears witness of. There are two classes of people, those that are crucified to their wills and lusts or those that are enemies of this cross. Many who profess to be Christians have not crucified their wills and accepted the way of God fully.
Willie Mullan shares with a burden of the Holy Spirit on the prophet Haggai. He preaches against worldliness in the Church and exalts a Holy God. At times his preaching is bold and strong! We need such preaching in our day. He shows how the prophet Haggai was a powerful preacher of righteousness with great historical background on the passage of scripture in Haggai 1:1-11.
Derek Prince speaks on the sober reality that we must all approach Jesus Christ as Judge! He clearly teaches that Judgement begins at the house of God as Scripture says. There is much important truth in this message that is very timely to the spiritual situation in America.
Tozer speaks at a Alliance Conference on the a topic of discerning whether or not a experience or new doctrine is truly from God. He outlines and gives 5-6 reasons how we can surely know if it is from God: Does it glorify Christ? does it magnify Christ? Can it be found in the Bible? Does it promote unity and love for the brethren? This is a worthwhile teaching to hear and re-listen to.
Erlo Stegen delivers a heart searching message on the person of Christ. Woe to us who have God's Word and are not transformed to hear and obey it. Sundar Singh said that salt dissolved in water may disappear but it doesn't cease to exist. We may be sure of its presence by tasting the water. Likewise the indwelling Christ may be realised by His love He imparts to us.
Leonard Ravenhill speaks on the dire need of a modern day pentecost upon the church. The one great need of the church is holiness but the one great problem is uncleaness. America is facing the judgement of God having over 250,000 professional preachers yet the nation is not moved to God. Hear this strong appeal to move ourselves out of complancy to a vital relationship with God and the Word of God.
Keith Daniel gives a unction-filled message, expounding the "King's Highway" - the path God led Moses and the Israelites on as they passed through the heathen nations enroute to their Land of Promise. Keith warns of the consequences to those who divert from this highway of God's righteousness and purity to go down to visit the devil's territories.
Ridley shares the word "eternity" that appears once in the bible but has powerful signifigance to the world. Oh to be enraptured with this all encompassing theme of eternity. Hear this old voice from the past share with a burdened heart the truths of the bible.
What does it really mean to be in Christ? Duncan Campbell exposes shallow 'conversions' that do not bring about real change and a surrender to the lordship of Christ. Campbell weaves in some personal testimonies and revival experiences to compliment the topic. 'Are you moving,' Campbell warns, 'under a self-created illusion?'
Wilkerson in this message gives out a call for all Believers to allow the anguish of God's heart for His Church and the world, into their own. Be prepared to be stirred by the Holy Spirit. You will truly never be the same!
Don McClure shares his heart towards a great need for ministers and Christian believers to believe the word of God as it is. To believe something powerfully, to love someone passionately and to live expectantly. Allow God to impart to you a renewed desire to believe the word of God as it is.
Roberts speaks of the lofty and majestic God that we are to seek with all our hearts. He paints a tremendous picture of man and how seeking after God is an humbling task. This is an all important subject and worthy of a listen.
