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
Mark Greening shares on spiritual warfare and resisting the work of the devil in Christian life. He debunks some of the false concepts of spiritual warfare that have crept in the Church and shows how the Church has departed from scripture in this area.
Brother Zac Poonen gives a very strong prophetic message on the need for discipleship in Christendom in our day. This is a clarion call for repentance for leadership in Churches to start to disciple their converts and build the body of Christ. It is not enough to just have a church full on sundays we need to see discipleship and whole hearted believers living for Christ daily.
K.P. Yohannan shares his passion for seeking and saving the lost as Christ did. He delivered this message at a leadership conference and exhorts us to not lose our heart and burden for the lost souls going to a Christless eternity. This message will change you if you open your heart afresh to the passion of God's heart: Missions!
Yorrie speaks in this message of the character of God namely His holiness. And not just an abstract message but it speaks of our experiencing of this holy God. This is a crucial message for modern Christianity, this was spoken on the 50th year of ministry of brother Yorrie at the Moriah Chapel in Wales.
David Legge shares his burden about what God is doing in now and will be doing in revival in the future. This message is prophetic and carries with it a great weight about the true reality of a move of God and the biblical implications. This is a very important message for the times we are living in as the body of Christ.
This message delivered by Mark Greening is a powerful exhortation to true prayer and intercession that brings revival. With testimonies of God working just months before and examples of church history of such praying. With many scriptures given to substantiate this type of praying we are helpless but to say we have not such a conception of praying in our day. Oh may we humble ourselves and let our Master teach us afresh what it means to "travail."
Michael Youssef shares this powerful sermon at the 2007 National Broadcasters Association. There is a deep burden and weeping over the state of America and Evangelism in this message. Oh that we would hear it all with "ears that can hear" what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. This is a urgent appeal from the heart of God over the declension and need of a genuine biblical revival in our generation.
Bill McLeod has taken part in revivals for over thirty years. He has traveled extensively and experienced the power of God in revival throughout Canada, the United States, South America, and Europe. For the last twenty years he has passionately led crusades and revivals, sharing the engrossing truths the Lord has given him. He shares his burden for revival through the story of Joseph from the scriptures.
America has made a tragic mistake by allowing the worship of Baalism into the House of The Lord. The god of prosperity has become the god of this age. How this must break the heart of God! The Lord doesn’t judge with any delight in His heart but He looks down on what was supposed to be His heritage and says I can't let this go on any longer! He absolutely will not let His people pursue a path that will lead to hell. God is calling His church to return to Him and allow Him to take away all the iniquity in us that would keep His life from flowing through His Body. When we get right with God the storms will come but His church will stand with His Glory upon us. The testimony of the true church of Christ will not be shaken!
This is a powerful message on the repentance needed in the Church world-wide. There is much that calls itself Christianity but is nothing but a farce. Oh that men would see these circus's in the name of God and repent and seek the true living God. There is terrible deception happening in these last days!
Don’t be too quick to comes to God 's defense and say God never asks too much. This message suggests that God ALWAYS asks too much and it is never God's design or desire that we should ever be in a place where we think that what God is requiring is something that we can bring about in our own strength or by our own power. When God first speaks His promises to us there is strong expectancy for the fulfillment of that promise. But as time passes on and we are still waiting the possible begins to seem impossible. It is in these times of delay that our flesh will begin to think that we can make things happen in our own time and our own way. God in His mercy will bring us through the refiner's fire so we can let go of all that we think we are and what we think we are supposed to do. He will refine our gifts and our calling until He has complete ownership and lordship over them.
Loving Jesus. It's what the Christian life is all about. Speaking with years of experience as a missionary, K. P. Yohannan gives illustrations about what "To live is Christ" fully means. In a day of so many plans and possessions in North American Christianity brother KP comes with the clear call to follow Jesus Christ with our entire lifes.
Pastor Wurmbrand shares his experiences in jail for 14 years by the communists. He shares a specific facet of his testimony which was the nothingness they were faced with in jail. No bibles, No fellowship, No communion, No sound. But admist this all the Lord Jesus Christ revealed himself to the prisoners and allowed them to experience him and even take communion. This message will stir you out of apathy and grumbling over our little issues in life that are nothing in comparision with what this brother went through. May this message show us the needs to pray and support the persecuted church. "It is a shame to be a luke-warm Christian".
Walid Bitar gives a very powerful message towards us as Christians living as Christians without worldliness. He states that much of the professing Church are living like the heathens in the world. There is a need for us to put away this corruption and live like the new man in these last days!
Jackie Pullinger shares a powerful message calling us to go out to reach that one that God has for us to reach. To reach the poor, the weak, the one's who are not well known. God's ways are opposite to men's ways. How sad to see so many churches operating in the business ways of the world. God uses the foolish and the despised for His glory.
