Crossing into Jordan — Jamie teaches that God wants us to experience peace, joy and happiness now.

Believing God

I Believe God — We have a hard time believing God in this day and age. We hope and we wish, but that is not the same as believing God and believing in His faithfulness. Jesus taught us to come to him as would a little child, stand on the Word of God, and just believe. (May 1991)

________________________

Bitterness

Pulling up the Bitter Root– Speaking 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.

Christ-like

Having the Character of Christ — The essence of our Christian life is growing in the character of Jesus Christ.

Conforming to the Image of God’s Son God wants to do something incredible in our lives. He wants to burn out of us everything that is not pure. He wants us to be conformed to the image of Jesus. (Sept. 1976)

 

Be Who You Are — In a Father’s Day message and using Jonah as an example, Jamie says “our purpose on earth is to be made into the image of Jesus. When you understand that, you understand that everything that happens to you has a purpose — to conform you to the image of Christ.” (June 1991)

Christian Living

How to be a Christian in a Godless Society — As Christians on this earth we are in the midst of a godless society. All the world around us is under Satan’s power and his control. But we have a balm in the presence of the Holy Spirit and we can live in this world in victory and with joy. Let’s be very careful we don’t become judgmental but show forgiveness and the love of Christ to this fallen world.  (Feb. 12, 1978)

 

Half-baked Christians — How easy is it to not turn over every aspect of our life to Christ, or worse, to go backwards. You may appear good and righteous on one side, but look behind you. You are half-baked. You have failed to expose all sides of your life to the fire of the Holy Spirit. (Jan. 13, 1985)

 

Be A WitnessWe 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.

(Grace Baptist, High Point, NC., — Feb. 22, 1983)

 

Authentic Christianity — God is calling us to be authentic. He is calling His Church to be real, not like the Pharisees who were hypocrites, pretending to be righteous when actually their hearts were full of evil. If you truly want to be real it can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise you live as a fake, a fraud, pretending you are something you are not. (February 1981)

Be A Witness — God has called every Christian to be a witness, not just with words but with our life. We are called to speak the word of the Lord to others, but we are also called to live according to His will. On both accounts, what we say and how we live our lives are to be truthful witnesses unto the Lord. (September 1982)

 

Weather Vanes and Wind Machines — God does not allow us the luxury of knowing the future. Instead, in preparation for the future and the life ahead He has in store for us, He is calling us to do today what He has given us to do, today. (Jan. 1981)

 

The Circular Quality of Life — In this Mother’s Day message, Jamie tells us not to be worried about the daily grinds and routines of life. It is circular, but God is building character and purpose in us all. (May 1983)

 

A Risky Walk – Jamie teaches on several spiritual truths including: (1) How a task is done is more important to God than whether it is completed or not. (2) To be kind is more important that being right.

God With Us — In this Christmas message, Jamie teaches how God is seeking communion with us. In fact, He wants a relationship with us more than we could ever want one with him. And Christmas is His expression of making that personal relationship with Him come to pass. And with that relationship comes everything He has for us from heaven. (December 1990)

 

Home for Christmas — In this Christmas Eve message, Jamie teaches that the Bible is a book about family. From the Garden of Eden all the way through, the Bible focuses on family, relationships, and the fact that we were not created to be alone.

Conflict

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)

 

____________________

Contentment

Snake Bit — Discontentment is terrible. In fact, the Bible indicates that if you are discontent, you are without faith and sinning. God knows where you are. He has you where you are for a purpose and He has a plan for your life. (September 1991)

_____________________

Death and Dying

What is That to You? — Jamie shares six lessons about dying and how Christians glorify God not only in life but through our death as well. “The way or method of a person’s death is immaterial if that person is following Jesus,” Jamie says. “All that matters is if we are following Jesus.” (May 1991)

_______________________

Discipline 

Live a Disciplined Life (Practical Principles for End Times) — God has marvelous things for each of us to do, but we will never get any of it done unless we are well disciplined. If you want to be an effective Christian you must commit yourself to a disciplined life. (April 1981)

____________________

Flowers With Faces We all have dreams of doing great and wonderful things for the Lord. Don’t take them lightly. Cherish them.

You can trust Him with your dreams because He put them in your heart in the first place. (December 1981)

When You Are Born Ugly! — Jamie teaches on the story of Laban’s two daughters, Rachel, who is beautiful, and Leah, who is not. And of Jacob, who desired Rachel but was tricked into marrying Leah. Yet, God had a plan for Leah. (August 1989)

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)

____________

Evangelism

You are the Light of the World Jamie teaches that God has a plan and a purpose for your life. He is the one who has placed in your heart certain and specific dreams and ambitions to serve Him. From time to time we may need to re-cultivate the dreams God placed in our heart, look at those dreams and put aside all talk of impossible obstacles and soar once again in our concepts of what God wants for us — to be His light in this dark and fallen world. (Fall 1976)

__________

Faith

God is in Control (Lessons from Habakkuk) – Jamie draws lessons for today from the book of Habakkuk. The Old Testament book is full of Habakkuk’s complaints yet it ends with a song. God teaches Habakkuk three critical spiritual lessons that are applicable for Christians today. (May 1976)

______________

Fellowship

Walk Together — Jamie teaches that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save the world.

Should we and how do we maintain fellowship with them? (May 1990)

 

Homesick for God — Jamie 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)

___________________

Finding God

Our Mission to Kiss Frogs — Jamie teaches from Exodus 3 and Moses’ encounter with God through the burning bush. He discusses how the life of every Christian is ordered by God and that nothing happens to the follower of Christ that does not first pass through the hands of God. He concludes with the thought that we are God’s ambassadors, often appearing in the lives of others as a “burning bush,” speaking to them of God’s love. (July 1978)

___________________

Following Jesus

 No Excuses — Jamie discusses the costs and sacrifices necessary to truly be a follower of Jesus. “God never works on changing our behavior,” Jamie says. “God works on changing our desires. And once our desires are changed, we will do what God wants us to do. That is why following Jesus is risky living.” (October 1991)

_____________________

Forgiveness

We Must Go Back to Bethel — Jamie teaches on the story of Jacob and how, like Jacob, if we want God’s blessings restored in our lives, we must “return to our Bethel” and dwell with the Lord. He is just and will forgive us. (January 1972)

______________________

Giving

Relinquishment of Control — There is something in each of us that says we can run our own life better than God can.  Yet, the call of God to his people is the call of the shepherd to his sheep.

Normal Christian Living — Jamie teaches that being a normal Christian looks to the world like you are being a radical, especially in the area of giving and sharing. Jamie states that good stewardship is taking care of what God has given you, but always under His direction. (June 1989)

_____________

God’s Goodness

The Essentials — Jamie teaches on our need to obey the commands of God and how we must not rely on the fact we just go to church as our salvation, but we must go to God. Is it easier to listen to a man talk to us than it is to hear directly from God ourselves? We can listen to a preacher week after week and remain in disobedience to God. But when we approach God, directly, as He desires us to do, He will require obedience. (January 1975)

 

Remember, Repent, Rejoice Jamie teaches that God wants you to remember what He has done for you. And as you remember, you will repent. You will repent of not believing and not trusting him. So remember His goodness. Remember how He has met you in every tough place in your life. He has never deserted you or let you down. No matter how tough the situation has been, He has been there before you. So rejoice. He is with you even now. (Dec. 1991)

 

Good Will Come — Using the story and example of Abigail from 1 Samuel, Jamie gives four specific spiritual truths that will help anyone who is having to live with bad decisions from our past.

God Our Father

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.

____________________

God’s Word

The Word of God in Your Heart — The Word of God comes to us in many ways. The Bible is the basis for His written word. However, we also know God speaks to us using the spoken word. Once a person commits his life to Jesus, God will fill him with His Holy Spirit and God’s word will flow from his heart. (April 1986)

___________________

Greed

God’s Provisioning — Man, by nature is a greedy creature. We want more stuff. But God has commanded us to be content with the things we have. And he has promised that He will never leave nor forsake us. He will supply all of our needs. (July 1973)

(part 1)

People who Hear God — Our only task as a Christian is to hear God and to obey Him and sometimes all that means is to simply be available to, “keep the door open,” for His Holy Spirit to do His work. (February 1988)

 ______________________

Holy Spirit, The

The Dark Pit — Jamie discusses the need for ministers of God to be filled with the Holy Spirit at a Methodist minister’s conference at Lake Junaluska, N.C.

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

 

Entering the Land – Stir up the Gift — As Christians we are to be separate from the world. God has given us the Holy Spirit, yet we must, as Paul says in 2 Timothy, “stir up the gift” or “fan into flame” the gift of God, so we may be fulfilled and victorious in our daily walk with Him. (January 9, 1977)

 

New Wineskins — Jamie teaches 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.

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)

___________________

Joy

Stop Taking Life, and Yourself, so Seriously  — Jamie says, if God is really in control, then we should just relax and enjoy life. Our problem is we take life, and ourselves, too seriously. As a result we begin to believe we are in control, and not God. (August 1986)

 

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. — September 1984)

__________________

Laughter

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)

___________

Leadership

_____________

Lifestyle

Navigating the Narrow Path — Jamie teaches on making certain our walk through this life is it not on the broad road that leads to destruction but on the narrow path the leads to the cross. And as we walk that narrow path are we bearing fruit or are we like the fig tree that only had leaves and which Jesus cursed? (November 1974) 

 

The Lifestyle of Jesus — Jamie teaches on what the Bible clearly defines as the lifestyle of Jesus. How then should our lifestyle be, as the followers of Christ? How should we regard material things? How should we regard others? (June 1987)   

 

________________

Love

______________ 

Ministry

Who is Unworthy to Minister — Jamie touches on the sensitive issue of what disqualifies a person from ministry. In 1987 several key Christian leaders were scandalized.

(Tape 2 of 2 from Eastside Foursquare Church, Bothell, Wash., May 1987)

Occult

The Heavenly Perspective — Jamie teaches on the dangers of the occult. He tells that our guidance should come only from God through the Bible as interpreted by the Holy Spirit. Any other source of guidance like that found in horoscopes, astrology or witchcraft, is of the devil and must be left alone. (May 1988)

________________

Overcoming Adversity

The Inside of the Kingdom —  Jamie looks closely at the godly lessons from the book of Haggai and comes away with three keys for dealing with adversity in the life of a Christian: 1) determine the spiritual force behind the adversity; 2) do we really want God in our life or are we just hoping for relief; and 3) if you want God, what are the keys to coming into His presence. (CBU – November 1982)

 

When God Withdraws  — Taking lessons from the book of Haggai, Jamie discusses how we as Christians should respond when we find ourselves in times of adversity. He tells us to first determine if it is God or Satan causing the adversity. Then he cautions us to be very careful when blaming Satan for adversity in the life of a Christian because nothing happens to us unless it first flows through the loving hands of God.  (March 1987)

Supernatural PeopleAs Christians we are a supernatural people. The problem is we still function on a natural level. We do things in the natural and only expect things to be done for us on the natural level. Which is why so many of our prayers go unanswered. God desires for us to see things and do things in the supernatural realm. He desires to answer our prayers and to bless us, supernaturally. (March 1984)

____________________

Prophecy

The Battle is The Lord’s — God continues to speak to His people today. He speaks not only through his written word but he also speaks to us through words of prophecy. And when God speaks, we need to listen and we need to obey. (March 1981)

 

A God of History and Purpose — God’s plan is to fulfill biblical prophecy. When Israel became a nation in 1948 that was fulfilling prophecy and now millions of Jews live there. God also has a plan for each of us. (January 1991)

__________________________

Rejection

Guides to Successful Living – Jamie speaks at the “Jesus ’79” gathering in Orlando, Fla.

________________________

Resurrection

Surprised by Joy — In this Easter service message, Jamie teaches on the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Eagles or Turkeys — The Bible states that we are righteous in the Lord Jesus. We are no longer bound by our old sin nature, and the Holy Spirit has come to convict us not of sin but of our righteousness. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. (November 1981)

Sacrifice

Spiritual Athletes — There is only one thing in this life that counts and that is the crown of glory, righteousness and life that God has been preparing for us. God is looking for a generation who will respond to His calling, people who are moving, not just standing in the way. God wants a people who are willing to sacrifice their life for His purposes and not just seek earthly riches, glory or fame. (February 1983)

Salvation

Winners — Jamie teaches that if Christ came into this world for one thing it was to show us that in Him we are overcomers, winners, and we do not have to allow the world to fashion us into its mold. (February 1987)

Sexual Immorality

Sexual Immorality and Restoration in the Church — Using the text from 1 Corinthians 5, Jamie discusses how to handle sexual immorality and more importantly, restoration, in the church. He then goes on to talk about legal disagreements in the body using the text from 1 Corinthians 6. (January 1991)

Sin

Victory over Sin — Jamie discusses 3 basic principles that will help us have victory over sin and achieve spiritual authority through Christ. (November 11, 1979) 

 

Together there is Strength — Jamie teaches on the age-old question, What is Sin? “Christians like to talk about forgiveness, but to understand true forgiveness we need to understand sin, otherwise we don’t know what we are being forgiven of, and the first thing sin produces is unbelief. At the very core of sin is a lack of faith. When Jesus came to the world He came to restore to us the ability to have faith and believe God.” (November 1986)

Spiritual Adventure

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)

 

Drive With Delimiters — From the very foundation of the earth, God had a purpose for you. He created you in His image and not only did He create you but He continues to re-create you. Jesus wants to perfect that which is already in you even your most basic drives and desires. Let Him work and give God the glory in the re-creation process. (November 1983)

Spiritual Authority

Staff of AuthorityUsing 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)

 

Combating Spiritual Burnout —  If you are serious about Jesus, at some point you will come under attack from Satan. But remember, the battle is the Lord’s and it has been won. We are to stand firm in the faith and continue to do what God has called us to do. The Lord is our strength as spiritual forces fight on our behalf in the heavenlies. (December 1980)

Suffering

Affliction and Redemption — Jamie teaches on the story of Job and the dilemma we sometimes encounter when we know we serve a good and loving God, however, like in the case of Job, there are times when terrible things happen to us. (August 1986)

 

Paradoxes of LiveHave you ever set out to pray for something and the exact opposite happens instead? Jamie has 3 words for you: Don’t Give Up. Remember, God is on our side and He is watching over us. We just need to begin to look at all things through His eyes with eternity in mind. God desires that we see as He sees, understand as he understands, and to live by faith. (September 1986)

 

Don’t Waster Your PainDo you know that God has a purpose for your pain? He knows all of our troubles and He has a purpose for everything that happens to us. Trust God. He is at work in your life. (March 1991)

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in the PitThis is the story of Joseph son of Israel. Jamie teaches how we can be thankful even when bad things happen to us. Whether we are in the ‘pit of correction’ or in the ‘pit of curing’, the Lord our God is with us and he will not leave us alone as he shapes us and molds us to His image. (November 1976)

Trusting God

Relinquishment of Control — There is something in each of us that says we can run our own life better than God can.  Yet, the call of God to his people is the call of the shepherd to his sheep. We are to humble ourselves before him, go where he tells us to go, do what he tells us to do, and be who he tells us to be. Jamie also teaches on the purpose of giving and tithing. (1975)

 

Unproductive Times — Jamie teaches on not becoming discouraged during the unproductive times or the fruitless seasons of our lives. (October 1981) (Get the booklet here!)

Unity

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)

 

Are You Serious About Jesus? — Jamie discusses the AIDS epidemic (from a 1986 perspective) and asks the question: How are we as Christians supposed to deal with it? He then moves into the aspect of the Church needing to unify. Only in unity can we successfully combat the schemes of the devil. (November 1986)

Usefulness

Who Does God Use? — God will use you in the service of his kingdom right where you are today. It doesn’t matter that you have never been used before. God will use you now, if you let him, if you are fully willing to be used by him. If you are not afraid but you are trusting. All you have to do is to present yourself usable, just the way you are (May 1977).

 

God’s Unusual People — Who does God use? God is not looking for perfect people. He is looking for yielded people to accomplish His desires and His will on this earth. Regardless of the vessel, God’s word will not return void or empty (July 1989).

 

Talents Our talents are given to us by God. He expects us to use these talents, invest them, multiple them, and in doing so he will rewards us. Not to use our talents, out of fear or for any other reason, will cause our Lord to be greatly displeased, even to the point of calling us wicked and lazy (Matt. 25:26) (Nov. 1972).

 

Clay in the Potter’s HandsJamie teaches on being useable to God and being pliable as He molds and shapes us to be who He wants us to be in the Kingdom. “Being used by God means being willing to be changed by God, to progress and move with Him. The usable person is the one who is flexible.” (August 1976).

 

What Are You Doing? — Jamie takes his teaching from Jesus’ parable in Luke 19 about the 10 minas. What are you doing with what God has given you? Are you putting your gifts to work for God or are you simply leaving them buried in the ground? (January 1983).
