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.
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.
In this podcast you will learn about what makes a truly Biblical believer. This message is not for those who want to live a compromised faith, but for those who want to be like Jesus.
This is the first of three studies looking at what it means to become a radical Christian. God wants us to be on fire, Spirit filled believers that He can use to turn the world upside down. This teaching will help you get there.
In this final lesson on “A Presence Driven Church” we will study the idea that when a church is presence driven she will do the most good for the Kingdom of God. The spiritual, emotional, intellectual and relational healing that people need cannot come from the world, but only through Christ and the working of the Holy Spirit. The more the Spirit is in the church the greater healing will take place in the lives of people. And the greater the Spirit works in and through individual believers the greater the work can be accomplished through him or her. This teaching will help you be such a person and help you build such a church.
Part 2 of this study on “A Presence Driven Church” is an examination of what constitutes the life and character of a presence driven church. We will travel through the ideas that revolve around the work of the Holy Spirit to the necessity of Spirit led and Spirit driven leadership. This lesson holds vital truths that can be helpful for individual believers and leaders.
This podcast on “A Presence Driven Church” is a vital subject that needs to be addressed in our present religious environment. How can the people of God faithfully live out the what it means to be the “Church” if we do not know what the “Church” is supposed to be? In this series we will examine what the church is to be and how she is to fulfill her reason-for-being. You will be deeply stirred by this message.
Is the birth of Jesus fact or fiction? In this Christmas message Glenn briefly examines the validity of having faith in Christ and the facts that surround the historical account. You will be encouraged that Biblical faith in Jesus is not blind, but based upon truth and fact. The purpose of Christmas is also examined. Have a very, merry time celebrating the birth of our Savior.
In this final part of the series “Prepare the Way” Glenn will further demonstrate the similarities in how the church is to prepare for revival and how John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus to come to Israel. What it means to straighten out the crooked ways and smooth out the rough ways will be examined. The the ultimate purpose of revival will be discussed. You will be challenged and blessed by this podcast.
Part 2 of “Prepare the Way” is the continuation of Glenn’s teaching on the Scriptural correlation between John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus to come to Israel and how the church is to prepare the way for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Revival is never a time and chance event, but is always the result of purposeful preparation. In this podcast the prophetic ideas spoken about in Isaiah 40:1-5 of tearing down mountains and filling in valleys will be examined. This practical teaching on the Christian life and revival is sure to bless your life.
Preparation always precedes revival. In this three week study on preparing the way for revival we will study John the Baptist and the prophecy about this man of God that comes out of Isaiah 40:1-5. There are many practical applications on how this prophecy is able to be applied to our present need to prepare the way for the Holy Spirit to fall in our lives and a local congregation.
If believers really want revival then they must be careful that the message of the cross is central to the preaching and life of the church. A simple examination of church history will reveal that whenever revival was poured out that Jesus and the cross was the consuming subject. Remove the message of the cross and you have something other than authentic revival. In this podcast you will learn the importance of the preaching of the cross in revival and get a fresh glimpse of the Precious Savior who was crucified for us.
Today in The Radical Truth we will tackle the subject of holiness and revival. Authentic revival is always a revival of holiness. Why? Because the God of revival who is holy, stoops down to reveal His holiness to sinful man. Through the manifest presence of God we come to know the true nature of sin and the only remedy for it—a crucified and resurrected Savior. We will examine the profound subject of what God’s holiness is and what it means to mankind.
For this last episode in our study on 2 Chronicles 7:14 we will examine what it means for God to forgive our sins and heal our land. The spiritual and eternal condition of our families, communities, nation and world depends on whether or not true believers will fulfill the conditions of this covenant promise of revival. Without revival our loved ones perish and multitudes rush blindly on to hell. We cannot be passive with such an important subject; too much is at stake.
In this week’s episode of The Radical Truth, we will continue our study on 2 Chronicles 7:14. The subject that will be addressed is God’s response when people take the path of repentance. The Lord’s wonderful declaration, “Then I will” speaks of what to expect when we grow desperate enough to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways. God is not slow in keeping His promises when we fulfill our part of His covenants.
During this episode of The Radical Truth we will learn about the path of repentance that is outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14. This covenant promise of revival is as true as the God that gave it. The Lord is faithful to fulfill all of His covenant promises when we fulfill our part. There is a reason we are not seeing revival and at the root of the problem is our refusal to take the path of repentance. Listen to this podcast on your knees; God just might do a shaking in your life.
In part two of the study on 2 Chronicles 7:14 we will explore what Scripture means by the God’s call that we pray and seek His face. These two issues are of paramount importance for all who truly yearn for revival. Until we meet the conditions of revival we will never have authentic revival.
This episode of The Radical Truth will begin a series of lessons that will examine God’s covenant promise of revival as outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14. We will study the emphasis God places on humility in the bringing of revival. Then we will turn to the question of whether revival is God’s work or man’s.
The work of the Holy Spirit in authentic revival will be the subject of Episode two of The Radical Truth. There will never be genuine revival without the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. That is why God calls the church to be presence driven, never purpose driven. The Spirit can accomplish more in one moment then what the church could achieve in a millennium. All the church programs and church growth teachings combined cannot come close to the work of the Holy Spirit.
In this first podcast of The Radical Truth you will meet the host, Glenn Meldrum. Glenn will share a brief testimony of his life and then begin sharing the passion of his life—revival. In this episode the necessity of revival will be presented along with an extensive definition of revival that includes what genuine revival is and what it is not.
