  • The Witness of the Spirit

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    "And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth" (1 John 5:6).

    Several years ago I was invited to attend a revival meeting in a suburban church just outside of New York City. People had been raving about a "successful crusade" being held there by two young male evangelists. Finally, I went to one of their services, and I was seated up front with the ministry team. Little did I know, I was about to endure a terrible experience!

  • Breaking the Heart of Jesus!

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    When Jesus walked on the earth, He was all God - and all man! The man the disciples saw ascending into the clouds was the same Jesus they had walked with, eaten with, learned from - the same man who had washed their feet. And He ascended in the same body that had laid hands on the sick and held young children.

  • The Self-Destruction of America

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    For over a century and a half, America has not had a foreign troop on its soil. We haven't been invaded, attacked or bombed. We have sent our soldiers to fight in many wars, but always in other nations' land. Indeed, we have been spared — we have enjoyed peace and prosperity.

    Even now, America breathes a sigh of relief because there no longer seems to be a nuclear threat. We believe Communism is dead, that Russia will never again rise as a world power.

  • Embracing the Will of God

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    Every true follower of Jesus Christ says he wants to do the will of God. Yet most Christians think of God’s will as something that is imposed on them — something distasteful and difficult, which they are forced to do.

    I believe the perfect will of God is a matter of great importance to all who say they love the Lord. And there is a vast difference between submitting to God’s will and embracing His will.

  • The Truth About Judas — Betrayer of Christ

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    "Judas Iscariot, which also was the betrayer" (Luke 6:16).

    He was a handpicked disciple of Jesus Christ: a preacher of the gospel, a healer of the sick, a traveling companion of Jesus. He was so trusted he was made treasurer of the apostolic evangelistic team. He wasn't elected to the position — Jesus personally chose Judas for the job.

    According to Augustine, tradition says "Jesus had delivered Judas often from death, and for his sake healed his father of palsy and cured his mother of leprosy, and next to Peter he honored him above all the other apostles."

  • Walking in the Spirit

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    The apostle Paul said, "Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh" (Galatians 5:16). He also said, "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (verse 25).

    As Christians, we have heard this phrase throughout our lives: "Walk in the Spirit." Many believers tell me they walk in the Spirit — yet they cannot tell me what that truly means. Now, let me ask you: Do you walk and live in the Spirit? And what does that mean to you?

  • The Church's Greatest Hour Is Still Ahead

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    When Israel came up out of the Red Sea, they sang praises of God for the mighty deliverance He provided. They must have said to each other, "Never could there be so great a miracle as this!" No other generation in all of future history will ever witness so mighty a demonstration of God's power — and in such a visible way.

    “Never will the people of God be in so severe a crisis as the one we just came through. Generation after generation will remember this day. And they'll point back to it as the greatest proof of God's power and work among men on Earth!"

  • Is God Overlooking the Sins of America?

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    I want to tell you about a certain society — one that cast God aside and consequently sunk into a pit of gross darkness. Despising the Light, this society became a magnet for every kind of evil spirit. Law and order collapsed; every man was a law unto himself. The entire society was abandoned to the devil, and no moral force remained to hinder its headlong rush into hell.

  • The Lovingkindness of the Lord

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    God's lovingkindness is one aspect of the Lord's character I know very little about. I believe few Christians do.

    During my lifetime, I have experienced and preached much about God's righteous judgments, holy fear, justice, holiness and hatred for sin. But I haven't understood or preached very much about His lovingkindness.

    While in prayer recently, the Holy Spirit spoke very clearly to my heart: "David, the road is indeed straight and the gate is narrow that leads to salvation. But don't try to make My way straighter and narrower than I have made it!"
