David Wilkerson (March-05-2021) Watch Sermon:  Call to Anguish

Would you open your Bibles to the first chapter of Nehemiah please? Please just leave that open on your lap. We’ll get to it in the course of my message.

I would have a hard time preaching this if I believe my own flesh telling me that I preached too much of a heavy message. There have been times I’ve been to the Lord and asked him can’t you give me a happy message? But I can’t. Now God may be speaking to me. This may not be for you. But it’s a call to anguish. Lord, if you don’t help me I can’t get through this. I can’t. Lord I’m too old for games. Foolishness. And I’m tired of rhetoric, meaningless rhetoric. It never changes things. Lord, just help me.

Folks, I’m tired of hearing about revival. I’m tired of hearing about awakenings, of Last Day outpourings of the Holy Spirit. I’ve heard that rhetoric for 50 years. Just rhetoric. No meaning whatsoever. I’m tired of hearing about people in the church who say they want their unsaved loved ones saved. I’m tired of hearing people say I’m concerned about my troubled marriage, when it’s just talk, rhetoric. I don’t want to hear any more talk about how immoral America has become, how godless our society, how corrupt our business. I’m tired of hearing about Islam taking control and Christians losing power. And how dead the church has become, because that too is rhetoric, meaningless. Away with all of our how-to conferences because they accomplish nothing. How to cope, how to build a bigger church, how to reach the lost, how to improve your people skills, and how to impact the world in this computer time. I look at the whole religious scene today and all I see are the inventions of ministries of man and flesh. It’s mostly powerless. It has no impact on the world. And I see more of the world coming into the church and impacting the church rather than the church impacting the world. I see the music taking over the house of God. I see entertainment taking over the house of God ... an obsession with entertainment in God’s house, a hatred of correction, and a hatred of reproof. Nobody wants to hear it anymore.

Tell me now how many churches have you visited recently when you walk in the Holy Ghost is so strong that every one of your sins are brought up before your face, and the loving grace of God. When was the last time you’ve been to a church where you’ve seen young people under such conviction because the people of God have been on their face? And there’s such a concern, and there’s such an agony, that young people are falling on their faces and calling on God because a spirit of conviction is called down from heaven upon them. How many churches have you been lately where you hear a word comes forth that’s so burns in your soul, you know it comes from heaven, you know it comes from the heart of God. I hope you hear it here. Whatever happened to anguish in the house of God? Whatever happened to anguish in the ministry? It’s a word you don’t hear in this pampered age. You don’t hear it.

David Wilkerson (February-07-2021) Watch Sermon: The Restraining Power of the Holy Ghost

David Wilkerson (January-31-2021) Watch Sermon: Ministry of Refreshment. 

Some Christians tend to think of the apostle Paul as super-human because of his powerful writings and his marvelous ministry. Yet if Paul wasn’t made of the same flesh and blood as we are — if he wasn’t subject to the same temptations and trials — he would have nothing to say to the church. All his epistles would have been written in vain.

The truth is, Paul wrote many of his letters during the most difficult times of his life. He openly confessed to the church in Corinth that he experienced times of deep trouble and mental anguish: “Troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears” (2 Corinthians 7:5). When he wrote this, the great apostle was in Macedonia, where he’d gone feeling downcast, ineffective and totally rejected by the church.

How had Paul come to such a point? Let’s look at the background of his situation. Paul had just written his first epistle to the Corinthians, a stinging reproof meant to correct an immoral situation in the church. Although his letter contained a difficult message, Paul had written it through tears and anguish of heart.

The occasion for this letter was a shameful act of fornication that was being overlooked. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “You are puffed up with pride, refusing to mourn over this open sin in your midst. You haven’t judged this situation righteously. You should have put the perpetrator out of your fellowship, until you saw true repentance.” Paul then instructed them “to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus” (1 Corinthians 5:5).

It was a strong, hard message. And for a season afterward, Paul regretted sending it (see 2 Corinthians 7:8). Indeed, from that day on Paul grieved, worrying how the Corinthians might respond to it. Would they misunderstand his motive? Or would they know he’d written it in love, with a deep concern for where the church was headed? He later wrote to them, “I (spoke) this not to condemn you” (7:3).

I know how Paul felt. Over the years I’ve had to deliver what some could call hard messages by the Lord’s instruction through his Word. Afterward I fell on my face in anguish, praying, “God, did I cross a line? Your Word says we are not to reprove the righteous or to bless the wicked. Tell me, did I wound your righteous ones with this message?”

Paul also had learned that false prophets were creeping into the Corinthian church and causing others to “despise” his sufferings. In effect, these people were saying of him, “If God is truly with this man, then why is all this shameful reproach being heaped on him? Why is Paul being thrown into prison? And how could any man of God say he ‘despaired of life’? We don’t understand how a praying man could be attacked so often and brought so low. If Paul had real faith, he wouldn’t be experiencing these troubles.”

Such accusations are still flung today at godly servants who endure sufferings and reproach. How often have you heard one Christian say of another, “There must be something wrong in his life for him to go through so much suffering”? In Paul’s case, it was a matter of his critics wanting to chip away at his spiritual authority.

Yet Paul said he didn’t repent of sending the letter to the Corinthians. Instead, he instructed his spiritual son Titus to go to Corinth and explain the purpose behind his message: “Tell the people I love them and meant them no harm, but that this situation must be dealt with. Then meet me in Troas and tell me what kind of effect my letter had.”

David Wilkerson (January-05-2021) Watch Sermon: I Will Fear No Evil

Devotional: Love, Fear and Obedience by David Wilkerson
“… By the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6) “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil…” (Proverbs 8:13) “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me…” (John 14:21) “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments…” (2 John 1:6)

Love, fear and obedience – when it comes to walking with God, they all mean the same thing. In the past I have preached on love for God, the fear of God and obedience to God, as if they were three different aspects of our relationship to the Lord. But I am learning now that these three are inseparable that you cannot practice one without the other two:

You cannot love God without having the fear of God in you. You cannot love Him without obeying His Word. And you do not truly fear God unless you love and obey Him.

Ask yourself: What is your motivation for gaining victory over lusts, passions and besetting sins? For obtaining holiness, godliness and purity of heart?

Some teach that only the fear of God provokes believers to flee lusts. They quote these biblical passages: “Destruction and misery are in their ways: and the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Romans 3:16-18). “Fear the Lord, and depart from evil” (Proverbs 3:7). “The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death” (Proverbs 14:27).

Scripture says the early church was edified by “walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost” (Acts 9:31) And Jeremiah said sinful Israel didn’t follow God with all their heart because they didn’t fear Him: “My fear is not in thee” (Jeremiah 2:19).

But other ministers teach that the only proper motivation against sin is love. I heard a Baptist pastor thundering on the radio recently: “Fear is not for the Christian – it has torment! You can’t walk with God if you fear Him. Love is the only response to grace you’ll ever need. If you love God, you’ll obey Him.”

This pastor absolutely ruled out the fear of God as any motivation for obedience to the Lord! The very idea of teaching people the holy fear of God seemed abhorrent to him.

Indeed, from pulpits everywhere today you hear mostly messages on love. There is little preaching about the fear of God – almost no powerful prophetic sermons that bring conviction of sin and compromise. Instead, pastors teach: “Just love Jesus with all your heart, and everything will be all right. We’re not under the law – we’re called to liberty! We all fail, but love covers all sin. So just learn to love. Love Jesus and the brethren, and you’ll be guaranteed heaven.”

That sounds good – but it’s not what the Word of God says! You may answer, “But didn’t Jesus say the two most important commandments hinge on love – that we’re to love God and love our neighbor?”

Yes, He did! I have no argument with those who teach that love ought to be our primary motivation as believers. My problem is the difference between the modern-day church’s definition of what Jesus calls love!

Love is not merely an emotion or an affection for Christ. It cannot be fully shown just through worship or preaching. And it can’t be measured by emotions. Many Christians can sit in church and feel great emotion, crying out to God and weeping and then walk straight out of the church and disobey God. Jesus says that’s not loving Him!

David Wilkerson (December-27-2020) Watch Sermon: Fulfilling Your Destiny.

ministry for each of them -- but they ended up aborting His plan. They started out right, moving for a while in the power of their calling. But in the end, they died in shame and ruin -- missing God's destiny for their lives!

So, tell me: Is it possible for such Christians to be so pressed down and troubled, to be in such despair and despondency, they become convinced they're not going to make it?


Saul Was a Man Who Missed His Destiny!

God Himself chose Saul to lead Israel out of bondage to the Philistines. When the prophet Samuel first laid eyes on Saul, the Lord said, "...Behold the man whom I spake to thee of! this same shall reign over my people" (1 Samuel 9:17). The Lord was saying, "Take a good look, Samuel. This is the man I have chosen to lead Israel!"

Samuel didn't choose Saul. Nor did Israel choose him at this time. Rather, God said, "I have appointed this man!" The Bible says of Saul: "And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy...and shalt be turned into another man" (10:6).

Indeed, Saul was transformed by God's touch on his life: "...God gave him another heart..." (verse 9). Then Samuel said something wonderful to him: "...God is with thee"(verse 7). In other words: "Go with confidence, Saul -- for God is with you!"

Here was a man appointed by God, moved upon by the Holy Spirit, gifted with a spirit of prophecy, destined by God to lead Israel -- and God was with him. What more wonderful things could be said about him?

And Saul started out right. For a while he lived his destiny, walking in the fear of God. He quickly won a great battle against the Ammonites. And the people came home praising God, saying: "...Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death. And Saul said, There shall not a man be put to death this day: for to day the Lord hath wrought salvation in Israel"(11:12-13).

Saul was appointed king over Israel. Yet, one of the most tragic pictures in all of Scripture is when this man began to fall apart. He had walked in his destiny for only a short time -- yet God fully intended that Saul live out his days with the Lord's blessing. He had desired that Saul be remembered as the man who delivered Israel from the bondage of the Philistines. But Saul missed his destiny! He began to disintegrate, caving in to his need for human applause and acceptance. He made compromises to attain these things -- and he missed the plan God had for him.

It is so sad to see Saul toward the end of is life. As he faced one of Israel's greatest military battles, his heart smote him with fear. He ended up consulting with the evil witch of Endor! He told her, "...God is departed from me,and answereth me no more,neither by prophets, nor by dreams..." (28:15).

By Saul's own confession, God was no longer with him. What a chilling, frightful thought! A person can be called to a great, divine purpose, walking in God's blessing and anointing -- and then suddenly go off on a tangent, serving himself and ending up abandoned by God.

That is the picture of Saul here. This king ended up prostrating himself before a witch. And he died in shame -- forsaken by God. These words might easily have been written on his tombstone: "The man who missed his destiny." 

We Have Seen His Star -David Wilkerson (December-24-2020). Matthew 2:1-10 "After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: 6 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’[b]” 7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” 9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed."

David Wilkerson - The Cup of Trembling | Full Sermon.

This is a message about how God intends to handle our fear problem. There are four great fears: 1- Fear of survival and poverty, 2- Fear of losing children to sin, 3- Fear of calamity and terror, 4-The lack of political leaders. God never intended for His people to live in fear. God is a God who pleads the cause of His people. He pledges Himself to us and He puts His words in our mouth to destroy the lies of Satan that cause us to fear. This message admonishes us to keep our eyes on His resurrection power and to keep the FACE of JESUS before our eyes all throughout our days.

David Wilkerson - The Healing Power of Afflictions | Full Sermon

God uses afflictions to draw us into His Word so we can allow Him to deal with the issues of our heart. If we don’t see God in ALL of our circumstances, the good and the bad, our faith will crash. God is not with us in spite of our failure, sin and slothfulness, He is with us because of them. God's tender mercies are above all His works. Go to the Lord with an open heart and let Him love you through your pain and suffering.

David Wilkerson - Speak To The Mountain - Amazing Inspirational
JESUS, OUR SAFETY
Some months after 9/11, a New York City newspaper ran this headline: “CITY OF JITTERS.” The Department of Homeland Security had warned that a planned terrorist strike had been uncovered, and the terror alert had been raised to code orange.
HIDDEN FEARS
That same day, a New York City police officer spoke to me about the uncertainty and alarm within the police force and fire departments. Their macho exteriors hid secret fears because most of them had lost friends during the 9/11 attacks.
Even now, years later, each time some New Yorkers travel through tunnels and over bridges they hold their breath and pray for protection. A stalled vehicle can cause panic. The greatest fear that haunts this city is a suitcase bomb, carrying nuclear or germ capabilities. Many people began carrying small gas masks. The citizenry seem to be resigned to the inevitable, believing an attack of major proportions will eventually strike. No one knows when, but the thought hangs heavily over the populace.
A SOURCE OF HELP
Yet there is not fear among true believers. Instead, we want to be available should an attack come, to help in the time of crisis. This is how our church has prepared our people. In the midst of theses apprehensive times, the Spirit of God is moving in a marvelous way. Many are coming to Christ throughout New York City, and there is an increasing hunger for God among young people.
May this be the heart attitude of all God’s servants in these days of apprehension and fear. The Lord has removed all fear from His people, that they may be a source of help to the world in a time of trouble.

David Wilkerson - Sodom's Sister

David Wilkerson sermon Sodom's Sister  online

This is a chilling message not for the weak or half-hearted, concerning pride of a nation and a people. When a nation becomes proud, then comes shame. Pride is an abomination to the Lord. Throughout history, God has judged nations for this, like Sodom, Gomorrah, Israel, and Judah, to name a few. How can America escape? This is a classic and heartfelt cry of the Watchman, warning one and all. 

Ezekiel 16:46-52New King James Version (NKJV)

46 “Your elder sister is Samaria, who dwells with her daughters to the north of you; and your younger sister, who dwells to the south of you, is Sodom and her daughters. 47 You did not walk in their ways nor act according to their abominations; but, as if that were too little, you became more corrupt than they in all your ways.

48 “As I live,” says the Lord God, “neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done. 49 Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.[a]

51 “Samaria did not commit half of your sins; but you have multiplied your abominations more than they, and have justified your sisters by all the abominations which you have done. 52 You who judged your sisters, bear your own shame also, because the sins which you committed were more abominable than theirs; they are more righteous than you. Yes, be disgraced also, and bear your own shame, because you justified your sisters.

David Wilkerson sermon Freedom From Sin online

God never intended for man to live under the bondage of sin. We are free from sin and it is truth alone that sets men free. Through the New Covenant we find this truth. We have such a blessing and powerful promises in the New Covenant. God shows us through the law that we can't keep it, we can't be obedient, in our own selves, BUT, he made provision for us through the Holy Ghost being sent to empower us, and live the life of Christ in us, and working mightily through and in us to make us what God wants us to be. The image and likeness of Christ. When we give up trying to do things our way, recognize Jesus saved you from your sins, and when you fully submit to the Holy Ghost he will give you dominion over sin, by faith. A wonderful exhortation on the new covenant. 

 

David Wilkerson sermon Jesus is Searching Your Heart - Inspirational online

Having A Perfect Heart
Do you know it is possible to walk before the Lord with a perfect heart? If you are hungering for Jesus, you may already be trying—desiring earnestly—to obey this command of the Lord.

I want to encourage you; it is possible or God would not have given us such a call. Having a perfect heart has been part of the life of faith from the time God first spoke to Abraham: “I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect” (Genesis 17:1).

In the Old Testament we see that some succeeded. David, for instance, determined in his heart to obey God’s command to be perfect. He said, “I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way…I will walk within my house with a perfect heart” (Psalm 101:2).

To come to grips with the idea of perfection, we first must understand that perfection does not mean a sinless, flawless existence. No, perfection in the Lord’s eyes means something entirely different. It means completeness, maturity.

The Hebrew and Greek meanings of “perfection” include “uprightness, having neither spot nor blemish, being totally obedient.” It means to finish what has been started, to make a complete performance. John Wesley called this concept of perfection “constant obedience.” That is, a perfect heart is a responsive heart, one that answers quickly and totally all the Lord’s wooings, whisperings and warnings. Such a heart says at all times, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening. Show me the path, and I will walk in it.”

The perfect heart cries out with David, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me” (Psalm 139:23–24).

God does indeed search our hearts; he said as much to Jeremiah: “I the Lord search the heart” (Jeremiah 17:10). The Hebrew meaning for this phrase is, “I penetrate, I examine deeply.”

The perfect heart wants the Holy Spirit to come and search out the innermost man, to shine into all hidden parts—to investigate, expose and dig out all that is unlike Christ. Those who hide a secret sin, however, do not want to be convicted, searched or probed.

The perfect heart yearns for more than security or a covering for sin. It seeks to be in God’s presence always, to dwell in communion. Communion means talking with the Lord, sharing sweet fellowship with him, seeking his face and knowing his presence.

The Lord’s heart-searchings are not vindictive, but redemptive. His purpose is not to catch us in sin or condemn us, but rather to prepare us to come into his holy presence as clean, pure vessels. “Who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart…He shall receive the blessing from the Lord” (Psalm 24:3–5).

David Wilkerson sermon The Window of Faith - God is Able | Inspirational online

 

 

As I read Paul’s letters to the Corinthian church, I stop and ponder these words: “My preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power” (1 Corinthians 2:4, my italics).

When I was a young minister, I sought the Lord for clear manifestations of his Spirit. I prayed, “Oh, God, fill me with the power of your Spirit and give me a convicting message. Demonstrate your power. Shake the house as you did at Pentecost, so that people run to the altar and fall in reverence before you.”

Yet, as I read Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, I find no such experiences. There was no one being “slain in the Spirit,” no mention of houses being shaken. Instead, we find Paul preaching about everyday concerns, such as carnality, strife, marriage, divorce, proper dress, giving, the care of widows, maintaining order in church services, etc.

By Paul’s own admission, he had no charisma. His voice wasn’t commanding and he confessed to trembling during his preaching: “I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling” (1 Corinthians 2:3). So, where was the demonstration of the Spirit and of power in Paul’s life?

Paul declared, in essence, “My life is a demonstration of what the Lord can do. He can take a person without charisma, without a commanding voice, indeed, the vilest of sinners, and do something powerful with him.” This was not pride speaking. Paul simply knew who he was in Christ. He knew his battles and struggles weren’t over, yet he also knew his life was a picture of what God can do with anyone who yields to him.

He explained, “I didn’t come to you with a strategy or the methods of men. I came to you with the mind of God, and I spoke a simple, direct message that went straight to your heart. When I taught on marriage, it moved you. When I spoke about giving, your hearts were stirred because you knew my words came from the Lord.”

Look around at society. People are sin-sick, stressed out, despairing, with many at their absolute limit, desperate for answers. They don’t want to hear philosophical arguments or advice from yet another self-help book. The only way this world will be touched is by standing face to face with a life that demonstrates Holy Ghost power.

The Prodigal - David Wilkerson

I believe the prodigal son (see Luke 15) came home because of his history with his father. This young man knew his father’s character, and apparently he had received great love from him. Otherwise, why would he return to a man who would have been angry and vengeful, who would beat him and make him pay back every cent he squandered?

The prodigal surely knew that if he returned he wouldn’t be upbraided or condemned for his sins. He probably thought, “I know my father loves me. He won’t throw my sin in my face. He’ll take me back.” When you have that kind of history, you can always go back home.

Notice how the prodigal’s father “prevented” him with the blessing of goodness. The young man was intent on offering a heartfelt confession to his dad, because he rehearsed it all the way home. Yet when he faced his father, he didn’t even get a chance to fully confess. His father interrupted him by running up to him and embracing him.

“When he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him” (Luke 15:20). The father was so happy his son was back, he covered him with kisses, saying, “I love you, son. Come home and be restored.”

The father did all of this before his son could complete his confession. The young man was able to blurt out the beginning of his speech. But his father didn’t wait for him to finish. To him, the young man’s sin had already been settled. The father’s only response was to issue an order to his servants: “Put a robe on my son and rings on his fingers. Prepare a feast, because we are going to celebrate. Everyone rejoice, for my son is home!”

Sin wasn’t the issue to this father. The only issue on his mind was love. He wanted his boy to know he was accepted, even before he could utter a confession. And that is the point God wants to make to us all: His love is greater than all our sins. “The goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance” (Romans 2:4).

David Ray Wilkerson was a prominent evangelist, best known for his book The Cross and the Switchblade. He was the founder of the addiction recovery program Teen Challenge, and founding pastor of the non-denominational Times Square Church in New York of evangelical doctrine and practice, in which more than 100 nationalities were represented.
Wilkerson's widely distributed sermons, such as "A Call to Anguish," are known for being direct and frank against apostasy and serious about making the commitment to obey Jesus' teachings. He emphasized such Christian beliefs as God's holiness and righteousness, God's love toward humans and especially Christian views of Jesus. Wilkerson tried to avoid categorizing Christians into distinct groups according to the denomination to which they belong.

Used by Permission of Times Square Church. The work and ministry of sermonindex can be encapsulated in this one word: REVIVAL. sermonindex is not a organisation, business, or any attempt by man to build something for God. It is rather a expression of a heart burden to see the Church revived and brought back to holiness, purity, and power with God. "The mission of SermonIndex is the preservation and propogation of classical vintage preaching and the promotion of genuine biblical revival to this generation."

David Wilkerson (Trunews 2010 Week 1)

Sermon David Wilkerson (Trunews 2010 Week 1). Special rebroadcast, originally aired 9/11/09 - One of the most passionate and convicting messages of warning ever given to the nation was this one by Pastor David Wilkerson entitled "A Call To Anguish" Anguish is extreme pain, distress, or sorrow. Whatever happened to anguish in the house of God? You don't hear about it in this pampered age. More of the world is coming into, and taking over, the church than the church is impacting the world. So many times we say to God, "This time you've touched me for life. I'll never be the same." It's just all fireworks, a loud band and a lot of noise, and then it dies. All true passion is born out of anguish.

David Wilkerson - The Window of Faith

David Wilkerson sermon - The Window of Faith. The window of faith is not an opportune time but an inopportune time when everything looks hopeless. God allows death to roll over our promises and we stop telling God how to fix our problems. God is searching for a people who will fully trust Him when all hope and human possibility is gone. In these last days God is going to have a wholly dependent people who don't live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
