• 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."

  • God Has Already Begun to Desolate America!

    David Wilkerson

    "For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate.... Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed" (Ezekiel 33:28-29).

    This is a warning from the mouth of almighty God — and its fulfillment is found throughout the Bible. God has made it perfectly clear: "If any nation corrupts itself and becomes hopelessly wicked, I will desolate that nation until they know I am God!"

  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • God Needs You Now!

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    Sometimes I wonder if we haven't already surpassed the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah. In fact, I believe if you could gain a congressman's confidence, get him alone and have him spill out his heart to you, he would confess, "It's worse than anyone can imagine. It's hopeless. Things are out of control, and it's just a matter of time before our problems bury us!"

  • The Collapse of New York City

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    Recently U.S.A. Today ran a front-page story entitled, "Is New York Down for the Count?" The illustration showed New York City dressed as a boxer, lying on the canvas — nearly unconscious from a knockout punch. The story went on to say that the city is spinning out of control, and that this time many believe it may not survive.
