David Wilkerson – The Victory of the Cross of Christ | Full Sermon
“When we think of the victory of the Cross we have to remind ourselves that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all our sins and we are forgiven in Christ. At the Cross Jesus bore all our grief and sorrows. All guilt and condemnation is lifted because of His blood. At the Cross mercy and peace took on a human face. Jesus Christ made a covenant with His Father and His blood brings us everlasting peace.”

David Wilkerson was the Founding Pastor of Times Square Church in New York City. He was called to New York in 1958 to minister to gang members and drug addicts, as told in the best-selling book, The Cross and the Switchblade. In 1987, David Wilkerson returned to “the crossroads of the world” to establish Times Square Church. As a pastor of the church, he faithfully led this congregation, delivering powerful biblical messages that encourage righteous living and complete reliance on God. David Wilkerson had a strong burden to encourage and strengthen pastors throughout the world. From 1999 to 2008, he traveled around the globe holding conferences for Christian ministers. Wilkerson’s widely distributed sermons, such as “A Call to Anguish”, are known for being direct and frank against apostasy and serious about making the commitment to obey Jesus’ teachings. He emphasized such Christian beliefs as God’s holiness and righteousness, God’s love toward humans and especially Christian views of Jesus. Wilkerson tried to avoid categorizing Christians into distinct groups according to the denomination to which they belong. Wilkerson was killed in a car crash in Texas on April 27, 2011.
