Rose Augsburger
Women's Day-1 Be a Light For Jesus
Based on Matt. 5:13-16, this sermon was given at the Rose Hill Church in Mauritius by my sweet ministry partner.

Dan Augsburger "Sanctify Yourselves Today" 6/7/2014
This sermon was given at the "northern" 100 Year Celebration of the SDA Church in Mauritius.

Dan Augsburger:
The Fruitful Fig Tree 4/13/2014 
This is the first of a multipart series on witnessing given at the Fairplain Church in Benton Harbor, MI in 2014. Rose also shares quite a bit in later segments on the lessons she learned while working as a Bible Worker.

Dan Augsburger: Village Prevailing Prayer Give Thanks

This series on Prevailing Prayer was given at the Village Church in Berrien Springs, MI in 2014. God greatly blessed the time and many lives were impacted. On the final Sabbath, I spoke on Daniel and recognizing God's providential and blessed leadings in our lives. Find the final Prevailing Prayer presentation here.

Dan Augsburger: Revival Now (Benton Harbor)

Rose and I did this series in Benton Harbor, MI in early 2014. We followed a syllabus I prepared on revival of little known quotes on the subject. We enjoyed the presence of the Holy Spirit through the many prayers that went up, the subject matter and the sweet response of the attendees. You can find the entire series, as well as the handouts on the Revival Now (Benton Harbor) page.

Dan Augsburger: Revive1-Like Jesus—Counting the Cost
This is the first of a two-part series given at the Revive Vespers, given on the campus of Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI. This series considered what it means to be like Jesus, in the context of the cost He paid in becoming our redeemer in the early part of His life. The next part will look at what Jesus meant when He said to take up His yoke.  Also read the quotations shared in "Counting the Cost." Find the second Revive2-Like Jesus—Taking Up the Yoke presentation here.

Dan Augsburger: Revive2-Like Jesus—Taking Up the Yoke
This is the second of the two part series on being like Jesus shared at the Revive Vespers in 2014. I especially considered Jesus' call to take up the "yoke" in Matt. 11:28-30, and what it means on a practical basis. We learned that the yoke represents submitting to God's will and service. The yoke is also to be worn in meekness. You can find the first part of the series here: Revive1-Like Jesus—Counting the Cost

Dan Augsburger: Picking Fruit
Here I share a highly instructive dream about a fruit-picking expedition given in the 1800s. Learn what it means to be busy soul-winning for Jesus.
 
Dan Augsburger: The "No Limit" Christian
This is one of Rose's favorite sermons of mine. It was written at the end of a week in Ann Arbor, MI where I was teaching on the More Abundant Life. She listened to this sermon many times while she was praying about God bringing us together. I think you will also be blessed. It speaks of what God can do with people who make an unreserved surrender to God.

Dan Augsburger: Rockingham More Abundant Life
This is a ten part series on experiencing the More Abundant Life. I've shared on the subject in many places, but this was one of the more complete series and therefore strongly recommended.
 
Instructive Words for Relationships
2 Thess. 3:15 "Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother."
Col. 3:16 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

"In the work of helping others, we may gain most precious victories. We should devote ourselves with untiring zeal, with earnest fidelity, with self-denial, and with patience, to the work of helping those who need to develop. Kind, encouraging words will do wonders. There are many who, if a constant, cheerful effort is put forth in their behalf, without faultfinding or chiding, will show themselves susceptible of improvement. The less we criticize others, the greater will be our influence over them for good. To many, frequent, positive admonitions will do more harm than good. Let Christlike kindness be enjoined upon all." {MM 208.4}

Bible Brings Safety
Ps. 119:11 "Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You."

"The Bible, and the Bible only, studied on your knees, laid up in your heart, and practiced in your life, attended by the Holy Spirit's power, can be your safeguard. It alone can make you righteous and holy and keep you thus. Every human influence is weak and varying unless the truth of God's word is brought home to the soul, and placed upon the throne. Not till this is done, will the heart be sanctified, purified and made holy, a fountain out of which are the issues of life."—Paulson Collection, p. 57.3
  (read more quotes on daily Bible study)
 
Teach Us Lord
Ps. 32:8 "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye."

“The more satisfied any one is with himself, and his present knowledge, the less earnestly and humbly will he seek to be guided into all truth. The less of the Holy Spirit of God he has, the more self-satisfied and complacent he will feel. He will not search earnestly and with the deepest interest to know more truth. But unless he keeps pace with the Leader, who is guiding into all truth, he will be left behind, belated, blinded, confused, because he is not walking in the light.”—Paulson Collection, p. 56.2

Pastoral Admonition
"Luther made the statement that religion is never so much in danger as among reverend men. I can say that many who handle the truth are not sanctified through the truth. They have not the faith that works by love, and purifies the soul. They become accustomed to handling sacred things, and because of this, many handle the word of God irreverently. They have not walked in the light, but have closed their eyes to light."—Paulson Collection, p. 54.6
 
"When men who urge conversion upon others are not themselves converted; when they commend to others the love of Christ, which does not glow in their own souls, preaching repentance which they themselves have not practiced, and faith which they have no experimental knowledge of, telling of a Saviour whom they have never known except by rumor? They are self-deceived men, not far from destruction. Pitiful indeed is their situation. All may seem peaceful to them, because the palsy of death is upon them.—Paulson Collection, p. 54.4} 

We are fully aware that dishonest men, immoral men, who preach the word, are not always reproved and warned. They are not unmasked. They learn to hold the truth in unrighteousness, and can tamper with it without a trembling heart and rebuke of conscience. O that with pen and voice we might lead the people who claim to be depositaries of sacred and eternal truth to feel the necessity of enthroning the word of God in their heart, and bringing every thought, word, and action into subjection to Jesus Christ. It is a fearful responsibility to be in daily connection with the truth of God, telling others of eternity, and yet be unsanctified through the truth.—Paulson Collection, p. 57.1

"Discourses that have little of Christ and his righteousness in them are given in the desk. They are Christless sermons. To preach in the demonstration of the Spirit is completely beyond the power of those who are without Christ. They are feeble, empty, and without nourishment. They have no Christ to carry with them in private life. They are full of boasting, of pride, of self-esteem, speaking evil of things of which they have no real knowledge. They manifest an impatience of everything that does not follow in their line. They will even scoff and mock at sacred things, because they do not see that spiritual things are spiritually discerned. They degrade themselves by perverting and falsifying truth."—Paulson Collection, p. 57.4}

Ask, To Give
Luke 11:8 "I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs."

Our prayers are not to be a selfish asking, merely for our own benefit. We are to ask that we may give. The principle of Christ's life must be the principle of our lives. "For their sakes," He said, speaking of His disciples, "I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified." John 17:19. The same devotion, the same self-sacrifice, the same subjection to the claims of the word of God, that were manifest in Christ, must be seen in His servants. Our mission to the world is not to serve or please ourselves; we are to glorify God by co-operating with Him to save sinners. We are to ask blessings from God that we may communicate to others. The capacity for receiving is preserved only by imparting. We cannot continue to receive heavenly treasure without communicating to those around us.  {COL 142.3} 


God Has Already Won The Victory!
Ps. 56:3 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee"
 
Heb. 4:15 "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."
 
Rom. 8:37 "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us."
 
"Battles are to be fought every day. A great warfare is going on over every soul, between the prince of darkness and the Prince of life. . . . As God's agents you are to yield yourselves to Him, that He may plan and direct and fight the battle for you, with your cooperation. The Prince of life is at the head of His work. He is to be with you in your daily battle with self, that you may be true to principle; that passion, when warring for the mastery, may be subdued by the grace of Christ; that you come off more than conqueror through Him that hath loved us. Jesus has been over the ground. He knows the power of every temptation. He knows just how to meet every emergency, and how to guide you through every path of danger. Then why not trust Him?"  {CC 117.4}
Check Out Hundreds of Quotes on Revival
"Revive us again...."
"The secret of the success of the Apostles lay, not in what they did and said, but in the presence of Christ in them and with them. They saw with the eyes of Christ, felt with His heart, and worked with His energies. They were nothing, Christ was everything. Christ was living, breathing, and triumphing in their personal lives. Their entire nature being replete with His light, and their souls kindled with the fires of His love, they moved in the midst of men as embodiments of supernatural power." (Read the rest of Griffith John's powerful thoughts on what made the apostles such power-filled Christians)

“What do we want I will express it to you in one word. We want a great revival of personal piety. We want a great effusion of the Holy Spirit. We want another Pentecostal season. Then the numbers of Gods servants who will be prepared to go forth as missionaries will be multiplied; the silver and the gold will be multiplied, too. The same blessed Spirit which stirs up the hearts of men to go and minister to their fellow-creatures will stir up the hearts of His people also to supply the silver and the gold. Therefore I close with the prayer: “ Awake, O north wind, and come thou south wind, blow upon our garden, that the spices thereof may flow forth”—Daniel Wilson.

"In every age and every land the greatest and most constraining stimulus to labour and sacrifice in the cause of evangelism is loving loyalty to Christ, a sensitive concern for His honour, enthusiasm for the coming of His kingdom, and a determination that His will shall be done on earth, even as it is done in heaven."—James Gall.

Prayer and the Spiritual Condition of the Church
 
Here are a few things recently posted in the quotations section of this web site on prayer and the condition of the church:

1/14/2014
2 Thesss. 3:1 "Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you...."

"The preached Word will be powerless for the conviction and conversion of souls, while a sleepy, lazy, and backslidden church are all that are left to sustain the efforts of the laborers. The efforts of Christ's ambassadors will be successful only when sustained by an earnest, praying, working people." {PH152 6.2}

1/19/2014
Acts 1:14 "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers."

"A prayer-meeting will always tell the true interest of the church-members in spiritual and eternal things. The prayer-meeting is as the pulse to the body; it denotes the true spiritual condition of the church. A lifeless, backslidden church has no relish for the prayer-meetings." {PH152 7.1}


 
Other Thoughts on Prayer

Regarding the Lost Art of Apostolic Praying...
"
I am deeply convinced in my own soul that the art of apostolic praying is almost a lost art in the Church of Christ. Think of the matchless promises which are attached to prayer. 'If ye shall ask anything of the Father, He will give it you in My Name.' 'Ask and yc shall receive, that your joy may be fulfilled ;' and ' Whensoever ye stand praying, forgive if you have aught against anyone, that your Father also, which is in heaven, may forgive you.' Again,' Whatsoever things ye pray and ask for, believe that ye have received them, and ye shall have them.' Pierson Student Missionary Conference 1896

Regarding Prayer and Mission Service...
"
Some can go; most can give; all can pray"—Mary Lyon

Regarding Intercessory Prayer...
"United prayer is useful inasmuch as God has promised extraordinary and special blessings in connection with it: “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them” [Matthew 18:20]. “If two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven” [Matthew 18:19]. God asks for agreement, and, once the saints agree, he pledges himself that the prayer of his agreeing ones shall be answered. Why, see what accumulated force there is in prayer, when one after another pours out their passionate desires; when many seem to be tugging at the rope; when many seem to be knocking at mercy’s gate; when the mighty cries of many burning hearts come up to heaven. When, my beloved, you go and shake the very gates of heaven with the powerful battering-ram of holy passion, and sacred insistence, then will the kingdom of heaven forcefully advance. When first one, and then another, and yet another, throws their whole soul into the prayer, the kingdom of heaven is conquered and the victory is very great indeed."—Charles Spurgeon (Read more quotations on Intercessory Prayer)

"You may work without praying, but you can't pray without working." Hudson Taylor

"He has in His hand all the gold of the world, and we have only to go to headquarters to get all that is wanted." Hudson Taylor

"None can believe how powerful prayer is, and what it is able to effect, but those who have learned it by experience. It is a great matter when in extreme need to take hold on prayer. I know whenever I have prayed earnestly that I have been amply heard, and have obtained more than I prayed for. God indeed sometimes delayed, but at last He came." – Martin Luther

Recent addition on Abiding in God's Presence and Communion With God...
"The presence of God appeared to be deeply impressed upon his heart. He knew that God saw all that passed within him: he therefore laid open his inmost soul to this Sun of Righteousness, in order to be enlightened, warmed, and renovated by its beams. Hence his actions proceeded not from a constrained obedience, nor from the impulse of his own spirit, but were the result of the influence of the love of God. Besides this, he exercised himself constantly in looking unto God alone; in order that by the contemplation of him, he might become more and more enlightened, and imbibe fresh vigour from the immediate presence of his God and Saviour. He also recommended to others the divine presence in the soul, as an especial favor, and at the same time reminded them, that life from above is not the result of our own efforts, but must be produced in us by the sweet, and powerful, and vivifying presence of God."—Gerhard Tersteegen (Read more on Communing With God)

 Dan Augsburger: Prevailing Prayer

New Resources



 

 
 
 
George Muller, Bible Reading
"Young believers, in the very outset of the Divine life, learn, in childlike simplicity, to wait upon God for everything! Treat the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Friend, able and willing to help you in everything. How blessed it is to be carried in His loving arms all the day long! I would say, that the divine life of the believer is made up of a vast number of little circumstances and little things. Every day there come before us a variety of little trials, and if we seek to put them aside in our own strength and wisdom we shall quickly find that we are confounded. But if, on the contrary, we take everything to God, we shall be helped, and our way shall be made plain. Thus our life will be a happy life!" Bible Reading

Dan Augsburger, The Indwelling Christ
When we present our emptied natures to God, He is willing to fill them, by means of the Holy Spirit, with the Lord Jesus Christ—which is the second, “filling,” half of sanctification. Just as the branch is completely dependent on the vine for life, so we come to completely depend on the life-giving, indwelling presence of Jesus Christ. Upon our dying to self a new power—Christ’s power—takes possession of the new heart and we begin to experience victory like never before. Victory is a Person—Our Savior—not a behavior! Sadly many Christians have surrendered everything to God and have seemingly died to self, but they have not taken Jesus as the fullness of all blessings to dwell in their hearts by faith. Therefore, in seeking victory as a behavior rather than victory as a Person, they necessarily suffer continuing defeat. As Christ is received through the emptying and filling process of sanctification, the manifestation of His character will necessarily attract other branches to attach themselves to the vine and begin bearing fruit—thereby bringing about the desired much! fruit. Dan Augsburger Indwelling Christ

George Muller, Faith
"God delights to increase the Faith of His children. Our Faith which is feeble at first, is developed and strengthened more and more by us. We ought, instead of wanting no trials before victory, no exercise for patience, to be willing to take them from God's hand as a means. I say — and say it deliberately — trials, obstacles, difficulties, and sometimes defeats, are the very food of Faith." George Muller, Faith
 
James McConkey, The Sure Shepherd
"Because God is your Shepherd you shall never want. Whisper it to yourself when the shadow falls: whisper it when business failure is impending: whisper it when awful temptation is stealing into your soul: whisper it to yourself as God’s great eternal truth. And as the waves of the sea dash themselves to nothingness upon the granite cliffs that rear themselves against them, so shall all temptations of the adversary dash themselves to pieces against your quiet faith in the Shepherd; and as the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of God will uplift this blessed standard for you: 'The Lord is my Shepherd; (therefore) I shall not want.'” James McConkey The Sure Shepherd
 
Nancy DeMoss, Brokenness
"Our generation has been programmed to pursue happiness, wholeness, good feelings about ourselves, positive self-image, affirmation, and cures for our hurt feelings and damaged psyches. But God is not as interested in these ends as we are. He is more committed to making us holy than making us happy. And there is only one pathway to holiness--one road to genuine revival--and that is the pathway of humility or brokenness. "
Nancy DeMoss from Brokenness

 
 
       
 
Prevailing Intercessory Prayer and Revival Needed!

Prevailing intercessory prayer and Revival are desperately needed today.

The church is in desperate need of a mighty revival of primitive godliness. Where are the intercessors and prayer warriors who intercede on behalf of others, who remember prayer requests, who pray for family members, who maintain a watchful vigil of intercessory prayer, who know how to get answers, can wield the weapon of prayer in miraculous ways, such that families and churches are transformed?

 
Why are Prevailing Intercessory Prayer and Revival languishing?

In spite of the desperate intercessors and prayer warriors acknowledge their intercessory prayers are going unanswered, that individuals and churches are remaining untouched! Why? Is God no longer interested in what is going on down here? Hardly. In the days of Israel of old when oppression and violence ruled the land, God wondered where the intercessors were? Are we having the same "AWOL" problem in our day?

Charles Finney, the great American revivalist, shares how he turned down one church's offer to pray for him because he couldn't see that their prayers were making a difference. In Charles Finney’s words to them, “If there were anything to your prayers, you would have driven the devil clear out of this town!” Eventually Finney he identified two reasons their prayers were not being answered. Those two reasons are still problematic for prevailing intercessory prayer in our day!

 
The Call For Prevailing Intercessory Prayer and Revival

Are your prayers getting through? Sometimes? Sometimes not? Are you praying according to what the Bible teaches on the subject? Do you even know what the Bible teaches on the subject? What do you know about the kind of life that brings God's blessings and revival?

This web site is dedicated to sharing what the Bible teaches on the subject of prayer, the more abundant life and revival in very systematic ways. Try to follow the links that appear on each page.
