Teachings from other locations around the country

How to Handle the Future — Unity in the body of Christ is vital for evangelizing the world. Teaching from John 17:20-23, Jamie impresses the importance of the body of Christ coming into a covenant relationship with one another as did the early churches in the New Testament. (Nondenominational Conference on Charismatic Renewal, Kansas City — 1977)

 

Creative Conflicts — Jamie states that in the life of the Christian we live our life on three levels: the achieving mode, the relational mode, and the being or personal mode. God has designed our life for each of these levels, or modes, to be lived in balance with each other, and there is a danger if we live exclusively in one or the other. (Liberty Church, Pensacola, Florida — Oct. 2, 1984)

 

Be A Witness — We are all called to give testimony as to what God has done in our lives. Not everyone is required to be an evangelists, but all Christians are called to testify to the goodness of God. He has placed you where you are in order to be a witness for Jesus, to testify what you have seen and share your experiences so others may know God as well. (Grace Baptist, High Point, NC., — Feb. 22, 1983)

 

The Joy of Salvation — There won’t be any joy in our lives unless the originator of joy, the Holy Spirit, is living and functioning in us. Without the Joy of the Lord, all we do is present condemnation and self-righteousness to others. But a Spirit-filled person is an attractive person and people gravitate to them. It’s the joy-filled Christian that will attract people to Jesus and make them want to know Christ. (Liberty Church, Pensacola, Fla. — Sept. 30, 1984)

 

Laughing at Life —  Jamie gets personal with fellow pastors as well as with himself saying, “It’s time for Christians to come out of the closet and admit that we are just like everybody else and laugh at ourselves just a little bit.” Jamie’s stories are funny, but they make a point. Like the parables of Jesus, each story is with purpose, and a little bit of humor. (1989 – James Robison Evangelistic Association, Ft. Worth, TX) (Get the booklet based on this sermon here!)

 

The Person of God Our Father Jamie teaches from his experiences with his own earthly father and relates how we, too, can have a close relationship with our heavenly Father. He goes on to teach that though we can be proud of our earthly heritage we can also be caught up in bondage to it. Instead, as Christians our new heritage is traced only to our Heavenly Father and we should be taking on His characteristics. (Piedmont Prayer Retreat, High Point, NC – Oct. 1978) 

 

Pulling up the Bitter RootSpeaking to a gathering in Phoenix, Jamie shares on the principle that if you are going to be effective as a Christian, you must have a clean heart, without bitterness toward anyone. If you have bitterness or forgiveness, God will give you the ability to forgive that person and pull up that bitter root which entangles you. (1983)

 

Homesick for GodJamie speaks to a group at a Camp Farthest Out (CFO) in Wilmington, N.C. — Every Christian yearns for the courts of God, the things of God. Even though we have never been there, we are homesick for heaven because of our relationship with God the Father. (May 1984)

 

Abiding in LoveJamie speaks at New York’s Shea Stadium to a group gathered by Mike Evan of Bnai Yeshua. He asks us to ponder five key questions, the answers to which will tell us a great deal about who we are as Christians and where we stand spiritually. (1978)

 

Draw Near to JesusJamie shares from his heart on some issues facing his home church in Florida. He then moves to discuss the  importance of remaining transparent and being accountable to God. (Tape 1 of 2 from Eastside Foursquare Church, Bothell, Wash., May 1987)

 

Who is Unworthy to MinisterJamie touches on the sensitive issue of what disqualifies a person from ministry. In 1987 several key Christian leaders were scandalized. Did the church react in a Godly way, or were we overly judgmental? Jamie touches on the issue of bitterness in our hearts as he teaches from Acts 8 and the story of Simon the Sorcerer. (Tape 2 of 2 from Eastside Foursquare Church, Bothell, Wash., May 1987)

 

The Dark PitJamie discusses the need for ministers of God to be filled with the Holy Spirit at a Methodist minister’s conference at Lake Junaluska, Tenn.

(Tape 2 of 2 -Lake Junaluska, N.C., August 1975)

 

The New Wine — The scriptures tell us, in the last days, there will be an increasing polarization between the spiritual and the carnal. There will be a great falling away but also the Holy Spirit will fall on all flesh and we are seeing evidence of that today. (Tape 1 of 2 – Lake Junaluska, N.C., August 1975)

 

How Dreams Come True — Jamie teaches on the desires of our heart and how God wants to fulfill our dreams, as long as they are in line with His will for our lives. He also discusses the first steps to becoming like Jesus. (Tape 1 in the series from Graceland Baptist Church, New Albany, Indiana, April 1990)

 

Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit — Jamie shares his own personal experiences when he received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the first time while researching his first book, Run Baby Run, with Nicky Cruz, in New York and then later in Washington, D.C. in the late 1960s. (Tape 2 in the series from Graceland Baptist Church, New Albany, Indiana, April 1990)

 

The Cry of the Wild Goose — Jamie relates Kierkegaard’s story of barnyard geese and teaches on our need to be willing to have enough faith to leave the barnyard of tradition and fly with God, who has placed dreams of spiritual adventure in our hearts. (Tape 3 in the series from Graceland Baptist Church, New Albany, Indiana, April 1990)

 

New Wineskins — Jamie concludes his time with Graceland Baptist Church by teaching that God is stretching His kingdom and He wants us, requires us, to be flexible enough to move with Him. He will not pour new wine into old wineskins. We must change, be filled with His Holy Spirit, in order to move with God. (Tape 4 in the series from Graceland Baptist Church, New Albany, Indiana, April 1990)

 

Staff of Authority — Using Moses as his example, Jamie teaches on taking the staff of authority and how we must hear God on a daily bases and not rely solely on ancient traditions for our direction. The Holy Spirit empowers us to take spiritual authority over every area of our life and that authority begins with self-discipline and obedience to God. (Closing evening session, Jesus ’79 Festival, Orlando, Florida, March 1979)

 

Guides to Successful Living – Jamie speaks at the “Jesus ’79” gathering in Orlando, Fla. He discusses how to deal with feelings of rejection and how God desires to fulfill the dreams of our heart. “Whoever receives a call from God to high service,” he states, “must renounce whatever has formed him.” (Jesus ’79 Festival, Orlando, Florida, March 1979)

 

When Your Prayers Go Unanswered — Jamie shares what we as Christians are to do when it turns out that God’s plans for our life are different from our hopes or our dreams for our life. What does the Bible say about facing reality? What do the scriptures tell us about trials and tribulations that we all experience? What happens when things go wrong? How do we overcome the great disappointments in life? (Tulsa Christian Fellowship, Tulsa, OK, September 1977) Get the booklet based on this sermon here! 

 

The Challenge of the Impossible — At a Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship retreat on Jekyll Island, Georgia, Jamie shares how the church, God’s people, must be ready and willing to move when God moves. We must be willing to forego our traditions if that is what is holding us back from a deeper relationship with God. (Jekyll Island, Georgia, February 1974)

 

My Story – Jamie shares his testimony and how he first came to be filled with the Holy Spirit (Jekyll Island, Georgia, February 1974)
