Preached May 16, 2004. The parallels between the church of Judah and the church in America (and many other parts of this world) are frightening. Isaiah warned about "influences from the east," "being filled with silver and gold," and "being filled with idols." If this does not reflect much of the church in our day I do not know what does. The warning of the prophet is that the Day of the Lord is coming like a growing storm on the horizon. Our hope is in Isaiah's vision of Mt. Zion. Will we repent of our ways and return to Zion or will we try to out last God's storm? If you are concerned about God's church in our day, this message should not be passed up.
Great Sermon! This sermon is really needed in todays churches. No one preaches the wrath of god or punishment. we do worship a holy and just God, we cannot compromise with the world. Thanks!!!

A wake up call to repentance! When i first saw this sermon title, i thought perhaps it was to do with Islamic terrorism. No, it is do to with the Terror of the Lord, and is a powerful sermon to not so much a wake up call to repentance for the unsaved, but a wake up call to to those whom profess to be Christians.I agree with Andrew, few will want to listen to needful sermons like this, but thank the Lord that there are some like Brother Van Dorn ,whom are not ashamed to preach all the counsil of God. Thankyou brother, may your ministry be used by the Lord as a wake up call to repentance, in the hearts of thoe of us whom are saved by grace.

A Very Necessary Call This message is one that should be heard by many of those who attend churches in declension. Unfortunately those who like having their ears tickled will probably ignore it - I pray that they don't. Trust in the Lord and step out in the service of the Lord.
If one is afraid to serve on the frontline, then I would suggest that the fear of man is stronger in that person's heart than the fear of the Lord.
In the service of our Lord, Christ Jesus.
