The Hardened Heart

America is losing her fear of God

This sermon was preached by Jimmy Swaggart on September 27, 1986 during the Washington, D.C. Crusade held at The Capital Centre in Washington, D.C. This message is taken from Hebrews 3:7-8 and includes the song “Jesus, You’re Everything To Me/Jesus Be Jesus In Me” from Janet Paschal.

7. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
8. Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:     Hebrews 3:7-8

Did you know that in most churches in America, you can drink and adulterate and fornicate and swine and swill and swill and whine and be a member in good standing, but once you get baptized in the Holy Ghost with the power of God Almighty with the evidence of speaking with other tongues and you quit your fornicating, and you quit your drinking, and you quit your cursing, and you quit your rot, and you fall in love with the Bible, and you get full of the Holy Ghost, and you fall in love with Jesus Christ, they’ll throw you out, they’ll throw you out!

What is the cause of man’s inhumanity to man?
Why have you allowed us to stray from thy ways which caused our heart to be hardened from thy fear?    Isaiah 63:17

I don’t go to ballgames but if I did, I’d expect them to play ball. And if I go to church, I expect you to preach!

Instead of opening our altars to the homosexual and saying “Jesus loves you and He’ll save you”, we have ordained them to preach!
