End Time Values by David Wilkerson

God is doing a secret work in our day. He is raising up a hungry people who are growing more and more dissatisfied with the fleshly, worldly system as it now exists — even in the church.

These God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”

I see it all over the nation today — disillusioned Christians searching for reality. The people in the pew are beginning to fast and pray. They are the ones who now weep between the porch and the altar. And, they are crying out for more depth and more of eternal values from the pulpit. If the minister of their church goes on in some egocentric way, pursuing expensive dreams, they will go out looking for a place where their deepest spiritual needs will be met.

I know it to be a fact that numerous ministers share my own desperate hunger for a deeper work of God in the church and ministry today. There seems to be a secret underground network of men of God who are stripping themselves down, humbling themselves, and getting back into the secret closet of prayer. Recently I have met a number of ministers, of various denominations, who are praying up to 6 and 8 hours a day. 

They are fasting. Some of these dear men of God grieve over conditions in the church today. God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.

Be honest, saints of God. Are you really satisfied with the religious system today, and especially in your church? Some are. But most are not getting their needs met. I believe we have gotten off the track of true spirituality. The spiritual leanness of so many Christians today is a direct result of getting into the flesh — trying to do kingdom work in our own power, with worldly methods. Our values are becoming perverted.

Shame on us! We are substituting temporal values for eternal ones. We have evangelists and teachers who specialize in telling believers how much God owes them. Material blessings are magnified, spiritual ones minimized. According to some, it is our right to be rich, successful, and immune to all pain.

These teachers point to themselves as examples of prosperity. “Look at me,” it is said, “I have proved the promises. I live well. I am never sick — I have no unpaid bills. I drive the best cars. I live in the finest home. It works for me, so believe as I do and you can have what I have.”

Eyes As a Flame of Fire

Beloved, how much of that teaching will stand up before the judgment seat of Christ? There is a growing inner knowledge in me that most of our modern, self-centered teaching is going to be consumed before the flaming eyes of the Son of God.

John, in his vision of the Son of God, saw an awesome sight.

“…his head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…” (Rev. 1:14).

John goes on to say,

“…I fell at his feet as dead…” (v.17).

Will any of us, as teachers and evangelists, be able to stand before those piercing eyes of flaming fire? Can any Christian look Him in the eyes? No ego can withstand His gaze. No self-centered dreams can go unexposed. All secret sin will be exposed as a terrible abomination in His sight.

All the things we have accumulated will burn. All the great works we have done for Him, with such zeal and sweat, will they also burn?

How important is what you are doing to God’s kingdom? God can give you the desire of your heart, but send leanness to your soul. God assisted Israel in their desire to have a king. But He later disciplined them for their selfish motives.

Are you in some kind of competitive race? Are you doing things for God just to keep up with others? In eternity, looking back — how really necessary will it all be then?

Children of God, what is the good of what you and I are doing? Do we have motives based on eternal values? If we truly believe the end of all things is upon us, what should we be doing about purging our values? What is it going to take to wake us up and get us out of the drift toward ease and comfort?

I confess to you that it has taken years for me to live only for eternal values. I grieve when I think back of the time and money I wasted trying to build something tangible for God. I wanted something people could see. How important I thought those buildings were to God’s kingdom. I convinced myself, “God deserves the best.” He does-but not in bricks, mortar, and steel. He deserves the best of our time and yieldedness.

Thank God for the day the Spirit revealed to me how shallow my values were! I spent 20 years planning programs, building buildings, running all over the world trying to show God how important to His kingdom I was. All the while my reputation grew as a minister of faith and vision. Yet, after each new project, I felt a letdown. No sooner was one building finished, and I was already planning another. I was an idea-man for God. I had more ideas than any preacher in America. Ideas on how to evangelize. How to organize New Testament programs. The programs and ideas were successful enough to entrap me and keep me on the treadmill of busy-ness.

But all along my heart yearned for more. I knew the blessing was not in building. Not in some well-planned scheme to reach the lost. Not in bigness, and not in activity. I discovered the hard way, that the glory of God, the peace and joy of the Spirit, was in being stripped down, emptied, and made totally weak. God had to expose all my values. He turned His flaming eyes on my soul and showed me I had better reject my old way of doing things, or be lost in a maze of self-imposed activity.

Now, my greatest joy is waiting upon Him for direction. I have made time to be alone with Him, and have prepared my soul to abide in His quiet presence. He is letting me sense what the Spirit is saying to this generation. The more He empties me, the more He fills me with a desire to depend only on Him for everything. I see now that all along the Lord was waiting for me to lay down all my plans, all my ambitions, and be given over to Him as a bondslave. The sweat is now gone – the pressure is off. He is recreating all my values.

  1. Esther Gibbs

    Amen to these strong words! There r so many of us who r fed up with the nonsense in the church of Jesus Christ and r on fire to take His Word and power out to the people on the street. I weep constantly for the Body and for this nation that I love so much. God is working on and with me to look at what needs to b changed in me and o trust and obey Him quickly. I cannot live without His Presence and know others who are feeling the same. We r hungering for that Black Robed Regiment again who were bold to teach the truth and then go out to lead their people to stand against the tyranny of that time. Don’t give us ur traditions! Give us Jesus!!

    • Wordforworld

      Yes Esther,
      How transparent Pastor Wilkerson’s words were/are.
      He “called out” his own ambitious zeal as if he was the “one needed by the LORD.” He chastised himself for the very attributes of many current pastors.
      Perhaps they ALL started out with genuine hearts! Let’s remember that when we point the finger to them.
      This is what Pastor Wilkerson reveals to us. He started out in the genuine heart of gratitude, too.
      Truly, he learned humility, and now, his words are affecting more people than he realized.
      How much we need the LORD, the Chief Shepherd of our souls.

      • C. Jones

        Paul said it all in Philippians 3:7-8. “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the lose of all things, and do count them but dung, THAT I MAY WIN CHRIST.” Many months ago God burned these verses deep into my inner being. THE LOSER IS THE WINNER!

      • C. Jones

        In the light of eternity Paul tells us what REALLY MATTERS in Philippians 3:7-8. “Set your affection on things above, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH. For you are dead, and your life is HID with Christ in God”. Colossians 3:2-3


    Will the fire power Seminar be transmitted on social media as well?

    Thank you Father God for protecting us against ourselves! Your love and faithfulness is endless! Come Holy Spirit lead us to higher places with The Lord God Almighty!
    Bless you Mario Murillo Ministry!

    • C. Jones

      So God protects us from ourselves by crucifying us with Christ. It’s called Born Again Crucified.

  4. Marsha Carol Watson Gandy

    Thank You, MARIO, for this message from DAVID WILKERSON. Since I first heard of David Wilkerson over 30 years ago, I got on his mailing list and his messages were what made the beginning of change in my messed up life. I could not wait every month for his newsletters to come!!! I READ WITH SUCH A HUNGRY HEART, and I would open my BIBLE to each Scripture that he referenced, and EACH would COME ALIVE within me.
    When I finally got a computer years later, I still received his newsletters—and was then able to get TIMES SQUARE CHURCH services, and also go back and listen to old recorded messages.
    IT WAS A BANQUET FEAST FROM HEAVEN FOR ME. It did not happen overnight—but my life begin to change for the better—-SLOWLY BUT SURELY. PRAISE THE LORD.
    To me,,,,DAVID WILKERSON will always be my spiritual father. He DIED less than one month after my Beloved Mother…..I felt that I had lost the two most godly people that I had ever known in less than a month….But, I have always felt Privileged to have been able to STUDY AND GROW IN THE LORD UNDER DAVID WILKERSON.
    What a BLESSING TO MY LIFE! and i have not looked back or turned back—-i am daily pressing on, as Pastor Wilkerson and my Beloved Mother live on in me—as I continue to have “Play Backs” of their teachings and wisdom. PASTOR DAVID CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER.
    MARIO, I am thrilled with what is upcoming that you are doing for all of us. WISH I COULD BE THERE.

  5. gewebster

    Amen and Amen. Today’s church in America is not the Petra Jesus spoke of, it is more like the Pharisees.
    I live southwest of Austin TX and continue to look for a Bible teaching Church. Anyone with a suggestion comment back to me a place to go and hear the Word.

    Very good! Sounds a lot like what Watchman Nee taught. More importantly, this is what Jesus taught. Somehow our culture has mucked up much of the American church’s understanding of success. (I’m speaking in very broad terms. I understand many American Christians’ views haven’t been mucked up.)

  7. NickT

    Amen… We need a God-sent revival that is only of God and not manufactured by men.
    Signs, wonders, and miracles from our God.
    PS – Pray also for justice in Maricopa County AZ., with its hand recount going on now that is truthful with no stopping it. May God keep satan out of it!

    • Mary Scheidler

      Nick, The TRUTH will be revealed not only in your county but, ALL that had been affected.
      I believe God allowed this to be so. So we as citizens of this GREAT nation can see ? the CORRUPTION that has been going on for DECADES w/these very CORRUPT politicians,
      city, state & nation ( the world, too!) CLEAN up the filth & start a NEW HEAVENLY WAY…NOT! Man’s ways, we FAILED since the beginning of time.
      It’s time for AMERICA TO BLESS GOD!

  9. Jean white

    Hi..I am a Canadian and I look fwd to Mario every morning.. I would love to hear more of his preaching.i get what I can get.,,Please pray for Canada it is in an evil place with evil people at our head. Our restrictions are so bad we don’t know from one day to the next what I’ll happen.,our prime minister has put us in more debt , lost jobs and crazy vaccines .we need prayer and prophets here.
    Christians are lulled and are in a fog . All I can say is HELP..

    • Mary Scheidler

      Jean, You have my PR?YERS for your BEAUTIFUL land. The W?RLD is in this together. Every nation is CORRUPTED by he LYING leaders who ALWAYS LIE with PROMISES just to so they can be elected…
      I believe this is a very important lesson to ALL of us to be the Lech Walesa the Polish leader of the Solidarity Movement in 1980’s
      how the road to socialism was BLOCKED & peacefully.
      Brother Mario is an INSPIRATION to ALL of us. To basically say JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU!

    I am so grateful to have found MMM. Thank you for standing tall, loud and strong oe our God and our Savior Jesus Christ. When I watch movies of how the prophets spoke out against the evil, it was a mighty shout from the Lord. That’s what we, believers and pastors, need to possess, that character of God. Adamant and no holding back. Its so hard to sit in church today, but I pray before I go and during and I have seen God shake up things a little and I can’t wait for Him to shake up more. I believe, truly believe, as long as we pray for God’s kingdom to be present, God will move and do it! Thank God there are those of us who want and desire all of tge real Jesus in our hearts and waaaaay less of “us” on our path to serve Him and be here when His glory falls!
    Its happening and I’m grateful to be in this time.
    God bless MMM and all of you who are in this fight for His kingdom come and His will to be done.

  11. Sandra Calhoun

    You have reached awareness and now building in the eternal kingdom that will last forever and not wealth on earth where it is short lived! Where your heart is will be your eternal wealth! Store up treasures in heaven not on earth! So many preachers have gotten it all wrong! But you seem to be sold out for Christ! You are so blessed! And yes David had it right and I believe the Father wanted him in HIS army for the great battle against the enemy! We have all we need to come against satan and demon worshipers, we have the precious blood of JESUS! We shall overcome!! You are GOD’S man for this hour!!!! Bless you and keep up the good work!

     Satan lures people into his ways by offering them things.
    I think back in the 90’s the church’s began to try to lure people into the church by offering them things, hotdogs, food, anything. And it has gotten worse and worse. That is satans way, he lures.
    It is not Gods way. In Acts 3 Peter and John told the lame man, “silver and gold have I none, but what I do have I give you…”. Peter offered him Jesus.
    Thats what the body of Christ needs to offer. Not hotdogs, reach out your hand and give them Jesus.
    Dont be like the world trying to lure with worldly goods, give them Jesus. He is all they need. Then they are in a family that can extend hands to help them, and teach them.
    It seems the churchs have become an imitation of Hollywood. Fake smoke, productions and even snack-bars in the lobbies. Rock concert style music with all the show of a concert. It makes my heart grieve as they make Gods house an entertainment center. No reverence for the House of God. A place of prayer and worship is becoming a leisure event. Just another place to go to be entertained. Just bring your coffee or drink in the sanctuary, just like a theater. We will gather with jokes and lessons on how to get a car or house. ???
    Jesus said seek FIRST the kingdom of God. This is still true today. Seek Him FIRST.
    So sad, so sad.

      Linda that’s good I remember back in the mid 80’s we would go out two by two in Phoenix, Az. From our church and invite people and their kids to church. We were told by people…another (mega church) had offered them hotdogs, programs for the kids and a bus to pick them up.
      It’s okay though I guess if they were exposed to the gospel, etc.

  13. Ernestcastillo

    I truly appreciate all the work and effort that every servant of God has given to further God’s kingdom. We must truly humble ourselves before God and exalt the name that is above every name Jesus Christ the Son of the living God.

  14. Doris Martinez

    Love and prayer

  15. ggramma

    Amen! Dave Wilkerson has always been a hero of truth and reality to me!! I remember giving his book “ The Cross and the Switch Blade” to several friends
    when he first published it!! It (he) has changed many many lives over the years and yes!! his message is more relevant today than ever!!
    Thank you for posting this Mario!! Such TRUTH!!????????

  16. Michael A Druckenmiller Sr

    Sorry just couldn’t leave it alone…
    A while back I re-posted, on Facebook, a blurb about Graham Truscott’s book “Power in His Presence” with these words:
    If your “Worship Services” are not experiencing The Power of His Presence, perhaps you’re not actually “Worshiping”?
    Admittedly, this self-published book has been abused by some, taken to extremes by others. But, there are key teachings within that every pastor should desire for God’s congregation under his care.
