The Radical Truth
The purpose of The Radical Truth podcast is simple: we want to search out the radical nature of the truth as revealed in God’s Word, the Bible, and learn about Jesus our wonderful, loving Savior. We also want to learn on how to live out this radical faith that Jesus created. Each podcast is roughly 30 minutes and features the fiery teaching of Glenn Meldrum. At times he will debut a song written and performed by young Christian musicians. Subscribe to this podcast so you won’t miss a single episode.
Part six in this series on Suffering in this Fallen World will focus on the subject of persecution of true Christians. This is a immense subject, both Biblically and historically. Today we will only present an overview on the issue and how it relates to us today in America and the Western world. Persecution is on the rise world wide and it is increasing in America at a fast rate. If Christians are not preparing their hearts and minds for the coming persecution then many will not stand in the day of testing. This podcast will inform you on this extremely important subject.
In part six of this study on Suffering in this Fallen World we will strive to understand two important issues. First, we will examine the right motive and attitude which true believers should have for being willing to suffer. Second, we will investigate the idea of suffering that benefits others. These two ideas are interwoven with each other, and when lived out in the life of a real Christian, will be sure foundations for making men and women of God.
We are now in our fourth week studying the subject of Suffering in this Fallen World. Today we will examine four subjects on the issue of suffering: disciplinary suffering, remedial suffering, suffering that reveals our true inner life and suffering that helps us know Jesus more. The subject of suffering is a difficult one to say the least. But if we will strive to understand the dynamics of suffering as much as we are able we will be better prepared to overcome life’s obstacles when they come our way.
This is part 3 in this teaching series on Suffering in this Fallen World. We will begin by looking at the costliness of our salvation and then move on to understand the dynamics of consequential suffering. It is vitally important that we comprehend as much as is humanly possible why suffering is in this world and how we can walk the victorious Christian life. You will find some practical truths that will help you through your suffering or prepare you for those yet to come.
In part two of this teaching series on Suffering in this Fallen World we begin by looking at the wonderful idea that God is in control even when everything seems out of control. Not just that, God uses our suffering to develop in us a Christlike character. Through our suffering the Lord teaches us how to live more selflessly which includes how to lovingly obey Him. However, before we can live a Christlike life we need a radical change in how we view life and suffering. This means we need a spiritual revolution in our hearts and minds. Listen to this podcast and let God’s spiritual revolution begin in you.
Suffering is a fact of life that we wish would never touch us. But we cannot escape its ever-reaching grasp. Yet in this world that inflicts so much pain and suffering there is a God that offers Himself as the remedy we so desperately need. In this teaching series we will study the mysteries that surround suffering and seek to learn the key to becoming an overcomer in this fallen world. There are answers to the pain you have gone through, are presently experiencing or will come to know. And the One True God offers hope to anyone that will seek to know Him with all of his or her heart.
In part two of this lesson on Biblical inner healing we will briefly examine Psalm 30 and learn how this chapter relates to the subject in question. A practical layman’s approach to true Biblical healing will then be examined. An interesting theme that runs through this two part study is that of worship. God created us to worship and if we worship anything other than God our lives will be negatively affected. With the right worship of God comes deep inner healing. Learn how worship is an integral part of obtaining true Biblical healing for our inward life.
In part one of this teaching on Biblical inner healing we will establish the need for such healing. We will then examine some of the errors on the pop teachings of inner healing and then see how these teachings are purposely absent in the Scriptures. The world does not have an answer to our suffering and need for inner healing. As people get deeper into sin the pain and suffering sin produces is more acutely felt. However, Jesus Christ has the only remedy to our pain and need of inner healing. At the foot of the cross we will find a Savior that is able to heal and transform our lives.
In this final lesson in our series on Holy Fire we will examine a couple of the primary reasons why we need the Holy Spirit’s fire burning in us. We will conclude the podcast by specially examining our God who is a consuming fire. My prayer is that this message will help set your life on fire for Jesus.
Prayers that are answered by holy fire and prayers that are alive with holy fire is the subject of today’s podcast. In this continuing study on Holy Fire we will learn a little more about the all-important subject of prayer. No one in this life graduates from Christ’s school of prayer. So pick up your text book–the Bible–and some paper and pen to jot down a few notes and come to today’s class. Don’t worry, I will not give a pop quiz. I cannot promise that the Lord will not.
One of the purposes of God’s holy fire is to purify His people so they can live in fellowship with a holy God. This is the subject of part 4 of our study on Holy Fire. God’s purifying fire is an expression of His love for us. We will also examine what a holy fire looks like in the life of a true believer.
There are some very difficult subjects that the Bible addresses. Today, in our continuing study on Holy Fire, we will delve into one of these difficult subjects–judgment. We will see holy God’s holy fire is used as an instrument of judgment. Though this is a challenging study, it will be very benifical to learn a little more about our God that is a consuming fire.
In part two of this study on Holy Fire you will learn about God’s self-disclosure as a He revealed Himself through a burning bush, a pillar of fire and through tongues of fire. The God that is a consuming fire wants to consume anyone with His loving, holy fire that will come to Him with all their heart. The purifying fire of God will set ablaze those who passionately pursue Him.
Today we begin a new study titled Holy Fire. “Fire” is a common idea that flows through much of the church in song, prayer and thought. But what does it mean? When we sing and pray to have the fire what are we really asking God to do for us? This teaching will examine the Biblical idea of fire so that when we pray and sing about it we know what we are really asking for. May God grant our petitions and give us the Holy Spirit and fire.
Today’s podcast will be a little different. Rather then recording a teaching as I normally do, I want to share with you a sermon I preached that shook the church. The message is about counting the cost. We need to not only count the cost to be a New Testament Christian but to count the cost of our sin. This message will shake your life if you have ears to hear.
In this second part of a two episode teaching on Leaving a Legacy we will examine the importance of how we live out the Christian faith because it will affect every person in our lives. Every person leaves a legacy. The question is what kind of legacy are you leaving. It is one that Christ smiles upon or one that hell is happy over. How will your children and grandchildren be affected by your legacy? This subject is of tremendous importance to understand.
This podcast on leaving a legacy will most certainly challenge who you are and how you live. In part one we will examine how a church and pastor leaves a legacy and the importance of that legacy. We are not islands. Our lives effect people for good or for evil. And the same is true for churches and pastors. This podcast will profoundly affect your soul.
This is the eighth and final part of this study on the Life of the Early Church. In this episode Glenn will teach on the fruit that came out of the early church’s devotion to Jesus. The application of these Biblical and historical truths for our lives have the potential to birth the same kind of spiritual and moral revolution that it did in the days of the early church. All God is looking for is saints who will say, “Here I am. Send me.”
The saints of the early church were a people set on fire for God. What was one of the primary reasons those early believers turned the world upside down? They were truly devoted to prayer. In this podcast we will examine the subject of pray and how we should be devoted to it just as much as those first disciples were. Our lack of devotion to prayer is leaving the church spiritually barren. It is time we repent of the horrendous sin of prayerlessness and return to the New Testament faith that is the only standard for true believers to live.
Biblical Christianity is radical because its founder was radical. All we have to do is look at the cross and we can see just how radical it is. In part six of our study on the life of the early church we will look at the cross and how those first believers were totally devoted to all that the cross means, teaches and demands.
The Life of the Early Church is a study examining what caused those early saints to see the power of the Holy Spirit poured out as described in the book of Acts. God is not a respecter of persons. If He poured out Pentecostal power 2000 years ago in ancient Israel then He can do it now if we will meet the conditions of revival that God’s Word clearly reveals. In this episode we will learn about how those early believers were devoted to God, and as a result, to each other. May God do this in our time.
In this continuing study on The Life of the Early Church we will examine how those early saints devoted themselves to the apostles teaching. If we want the power that the early church enjoyed then we must live out the same devotion to God as they did. This lesson will surely stir your soul and encourage your faith
In part three of the series on The Life of the Early Church we will examine Jesus’ view of devotion. The standard of devotion for the early church was defined by Jesus and that is what they taught and lived. If we want the power and life that the early church experienced then we have to live the life of devotion as they did.
Biblical Christianity is radical! To this we are called and the true faith has not changed in 2000 years. This is also true when it comes to the baptism in the Holy Spirit. As real and needed as the baptism in the Spirit was for the early church so it is for us. This study will demonstrate why and how God wants to restore to the church the full Gospel.
This is the first episode of a teaching by Glenn on the Life of the Early Church. This teaching series is of tremendous importance because the American church desperately needs to return to the New Testament pattern of faith and practice. In today’s teaching you will learn what normal conversion actually is as understood, preached and lived out by the early church.
