KENNEDY on August 13, 2020 The stress and social distancing protocols implemented by the COVID-19 pandemic have caused an increase in an unhealthy dependence on dangerous substances — including a resurgence of fatal opioid overdoses.

IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL … Continue reading In 2009 David Wilkerson saw major riots and fires coming to America
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – November 15, 2019 There is much talk of revival these days, with varying opinions of what it should look like. The first evidence of true revival is a great desire to hear and obey the Word of God. In Nehemiah’s day, the people expressed to Ezra, a priest and scribe, their desire to have the book of the law of Moses read … Continue reading EVIDENCE OF REVIVAL
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – November 7, 2019 “Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away” (Hebrews 2:1). The sin of drifting away from Christ is the most tragic, dangerous sin of all — and no believer is immune. Even the most devoted believer can begin drifting by getting lazy and passive about the things of the Lord. … Continue reading DRIFTING INTO DANGER
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) August 9, 2019 There is a thrilling Old Testament story that best illustrates what it means to be kept by the power of God. We find it in 2 Kings 6. Benhadad, king of Syria, declared war on Israel and marched against them with a great army. As his forces advanced, he often called his war counsel into his private chambers to plan the … Continue reading KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – July 26, 2019 Scripture provides endless examples of how the presence of the Lord empowers his people to live for him. Take Moses, for example.

When he spoke face to face with the Lord, he stated boldly, “If Your Presence does not go with … Continue reading EMPOWERED BY GOD’S PRESENCE

David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – July 19, 2019 “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:33-34). Enduring faith is the committing of all things into God’s hands. Enduring faith says to the Lord, … Continue reading Casting Your Cares on God
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – June 28, 2019 These mortal bodies of ours are but mere shells and the life is not in the shell. It is a temporary confine that enshrouds an ever-growing, ever-maturing life force and acts as a transient guardian of the life inside. The shell is synthetic in comparison to the eternal life it clothes. Every true Christian has been imbued with eternal … Continue reading A Desire to Depart
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) – June 27, 2019 Have you ever just wanted to run away from it all? But where would you go? And what would you do when you got there? You might be surprised if you knew how many good Christians secretly harbor momentary thoughts of walking away from everything. The thought of having no responsibilities and burdens sounds pretty enticing. Christ has set … Continue reading Running Away in Times of Crisis
David Wilkerson (1931-2011) June 26, 2019 There is wonderful news for every Christian who is discouraged by the apathy and godlessness in this nation. Regardless of how wicked and corrupt this society becomes and how many Christians compromise and fall into sin, God still has a mighty remnant of holy, separated followers. Christians may be deceived into thinking that Satan is winning the battle for the … Continue reading A MIGHTY REMNANT

A full 61 percent of respondents reported being “enthusiastic” or “comfortable” with a gay or lesbian president.

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)May 15, 2019 In the midst of a time of volatility and upheaval, how are God’s people to respond? If you have confessed Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you need never fear. Those who are in Christ are forever sheltered by the blood that Jesus shed for them and this truth is the cornerstone of our faith. It will determine everything … Continue reading Shut the Door
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)May 7, 2019 When our fear becomes overwhelming, we must remind ourselves of how great our God is. We need to recall all his great deliverances for those who have trusted in him, and claim the same majestic power for our present trial. Fear cannot get a stranglehold on any servant who has a vision of God’s greatness and majesty. Nehemiah understood this … Continue reading ARE YOU OVERWHELMED BY FEAR?
