The Restraining Power of the Holy Spirit

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

In this sermon, David Wilkerson discusses the restraining power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians. Using biblical examples like King Saul, he illustrates how rejecting God's Word and commandments can lead to the lifting of the Holy Spirit's restraining power, resulting in turmoil, envy, self-pity, and even turning against God's messengers. This sermon emphasizes the importance of trembling at God's Word, maintaining a holy fear of God, and consistently studying the Bible to keep the Holy Spirit's restraining power active in one's life. He encourages Christians to repent of their sins and seek deliverance, trusting in God's love and mercy.
