A Call to Anguish

A Call to Anguish - David Wilkerson

Would really appreciate your comments....I am undone after listening to God's anquished heart pour through David Wilkerson.

Philippians 3:10 "[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him, [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same ways come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]
v. 11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]."

Joel 2:17 "Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar...."

Matthew 23:37 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"

~Christ's Suffering....His longing for us, His Bride and who He desires us to be....that we may truly reflect the true image of Christ....not an imitation of who we think He is based upon who we're watching on television or even listening to standing in the pulpit...but Who He Truly IS and has called us to be as His Bride.
~The suffering of Christ...the suffering/agony/languish/ache beyond ache which happens because He knows what could be....but will not, when the person(s) involved (myself included) are not willing to participate with Him, because of selfish pride, rebellion, the desires of the world, the desires of time, my life, my house, my job, my kids, my ministry, my this/my that....unforgiveness...etc., etc., etc....

~Lord, I lay it ministry....Lord, that what will arise out of the ashes of brokenness will be Your Resurrection power that Lord, yet not my will be done, but Thy will be done for Your Glory and Your Kingdom...both for now and forevermore. Do whatever it takes, Lord, to take me wherever You want to take me. In Jesus' Name....Amen.

  1. Pastor Wilkerson's message is one of the most powerful words I've ever heard. Lord, help us - we need You!


Welcome ~

The purpose of this blog is to encourage our walk in Christ; together in Him; for as we develop our relationship with the Lord, we ARE more than conquerors through Christ Jesus! Praise God! My writings are mostly from an experiential standpoint; however sometimes this includes dreams and visions. (Comments are reviewed prior to posting.)
