Have you a burden for God’s Word? Keith provokes the hearts of the Body of Christ to probe for an answer to this question...Many Christians do not have a consistent devotional life with the Lord whereby they spend time in the study and meditation of God’s Word. This message will be sure to stir you hearts to reignite a passion again for the Word of God!!
This third part of three teachings dubbed “The Holy War” is titled “Waging Holy War”. It is the strong conviction of David that the end-time Church of Jesus Christ will be glorious!! Yet, when one looks at the current state of the Western Church, one struggles to see how this will be. Out of a burdened heart, David provokes and challenges the Church to inspect their spiritual armour and in light of this to establish spiritual authority to stand in this holy war!!
This second part of three teachings dubbed “The Holy War” is titled “Basic Training”. Once again, David passionately shares his heart on the need for Christians to be equipped for holy war. A soldier cannot just go out onto the battle field without basic training. First he must know his enemy and choose his side, but then secondly, he must be trained to go out to battle!! David shares his personal experiences being trained as a soldier in the South African Defence Force and parallels this with the spiritual training undertaken in God’s army!!
This first part of three teachings dubbed “The Holy War” is titled “Know Your Enemy”. David passionately shares his heart on the need for Christians to know their enemy in this holy war!! It is Satan who is the great enemy of the faithful, who is 100% committed to waging war. The call goes out for Christians to know their enemy, choose their side and commit to waging holy war!!
This sermon is a great encouragement for those whose children have gone astray!! Keith exhorts Christians to not give up on their unsaved children!! We must continue to stand in the gap for them and to shine the light of Christ. Keith through personal experiences, shares his heart at how God had reached many wayward children and brought them home to Christ!! NEVER give up on your children!!!
Praise God for holy convocations, special assemblies, where the people of God gather together in one accord for the express purpose of seeking the face of God! Praise God that often times in such meetings, God truly meets with His people in personal revival. Yet, as the weeks and months transpire from such blessing, one generally finds that the people of God return again to the mire. The great burden of this sermon is this one question...how can such personal revival be maintained in the life of the believer?
As one surveys the annals of history down through the corridors of time, one will find that history polluted and stained by war. That said, there’s something that an environment of war that is able to accomplish something that a pre-war environment simply cannot do!! It’s in the climate of war, where heroes are born. A pre-war generation of peace is known by its cowards, the generation of war by its heroes!! This sermon is a challenge for Christians to stand in this generation and to be counted among David’s mighty men. Such men were not born in a day, but in the wilderness, God shaped and moulded them into mighty warriors. Oh that God would do it again!!
Keith shares the burden of the Lord for lost souls and challenges the body of Christ to have a heart for the lost! The evangelist in Keith really comes through in this message and though we are not all called to be evangelists, we certainly are all called to share the gospel wherever God grants us the opportunity!!
A call goes forth in this message, somewhat of the burden of the Lord, for Christian soldiers to arise and having counted the cost of service, to give themselves whole heartedly to such in labouring for the King!! What doth hinder you from such dear Christian? The hardships of war? The entanglements of this life? Personal sin in ones life? Whatever the reason, the voice of God sounds aloud in our generation, “...Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Oh!! that we might be able to say, “...here am I; send me”
