When I read this message I was very much astonished in how much Bro. Wilkerson was really in line with the word of God and how I had to search my own life in this regard. I am very guilty in some ways and I got down on my knees that night and prayed that God would help me to remove all stumbling blocks and purify both my heart and soul.

I am glad that there are still ministers that are not afraid to preach the word so that we may LIVE!

Praise God!

David Wilkerson's message is right on target once again. Never in my entire life have I read such convicting sermons. The Lord's spirit is truly upon him.

Being a minister myself, I am convicted in my heart about certain stumbling- blocks in my own life. I have been seeking the Lord for a fresh anointing in my ministry. But the Lord has been showing me through his spirit my short comings, which prevents his life from being manifested in me.

My desire, as I am sure yours is too, is to be more like Jesus. I think if we would let the Holy Spirit search our hearts and minds, we would be suprised at what he would reveal to us about ourselves.
