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
Vernon McGee shares with a passionate heart the burden for a biblical revival. He exposes the spurious type of revival and shows clearly how true revival begins individually between God and man. He gives some very pointed statements towards the apathy of the church individuals and gives a clear resounding plea for each person listening to get right with God.
Paul Washer explains how self-denial is more than a wearisome relinquishing of worldliness. Speaking with great passion, he shows how self-denial is a work of God that makes surrender a joy and delight. This message penetrates with prophetic urgency the need of true conversion under the power of God.
Milton Green shares his personal testimony of being in the darkness away from God and being brought to the light. This testimony is a testimony of Grace! the marvelous freedom that Jesus Christ brings us into by his death and resurrection from the cross. A Powerful story of a transformed life.
This is a powerful message on the Judgement Seat of Christ. This message will challange you to question the way you are living as a Christian today compared to the eternal reality that we are going to go before God one day to give an account of our life.
A powerful message by Brother Warnock showing us clearly how we are a holy priesthood raised up by Jesus Christ as our high priest. And he shows how the gospel needs not just to be told but shown in the life of us the body of Christ. The world has yet to feel the true impact of the life of the gospel.
Empty entertainment/worship sung by pretty people -Doctrinally-correct sermons devoid of power -Sunday-only Christian lives barely distiguishable from the world All these and many more ills are symptoms of a disease Art clearly identifies in this message. It's such a fundamental thing, our understanding of the cross. It's an indictment of our lives and the current impetence of the church. In the final analysis, unless we know ‘Christ and Him crucified,’ our knowledge of God will be false.
David Legge gives a impassioned plea to the Church of Jesus Christ to wake up and weep and pray for God to move and act on our His behalf. "My friends, we need an awakening in the Iron Hall! We need an awakening in Ulster, for I believe it is our only hope!" and truly we need a awakening world wide! "The cry of my heart is this: whatever we do, we must not do nothing!" may we be led to pray in a new fervent way for God's kingdom to expand in this generation.
Ravenhill speaks from a text in Isaiah and speaks much about the role of the prophet. But really this is just him sharing his heart for revival and on the lukewarm condition of the church. You can really sense his burden as he just shares as the Spirit leads. You will be convicted as you hear this message and brought to your knees to become an agent of change in the church.
K.P. Yohannan gives an passionate plea to a large americian church in arizona to pursue self-denial and embrace the cross of Christ fully. He speaks on the reality of a eternal hell that forever and ever people will be crying out for mercy, in light of this how we are living our Christian lifes must change into radical obedience and surrender to the cross life.
Ravenhill speaks on revival and John the Baptist. The message really doesn't stay on course in the bible study but rather He preaches from a burden to see revival in the church. This message is well worth hearing it will spark a desire in your heart to pray for revival in our day.
This message brings eternity and the true faith of Christ into our view. A very pointed sermon that cuts through the overlay of false profession in the Church. Paul Washer humbly yet with boldness speaks forth as the Oracles of God to a crowd of 5000 baptist youth. Would be to God that more would speeak with a clear conscience of true Christian virtue and repentance.
