My life was being ripped, shredded and literally torn apart once again. How do I accept who and what I am? What will happen to my family, my wife and our three young girls?

Where Humanity Sees the Divine

Where Humanity Sees the Divine

There is a big difference between teaching the gospel and seeing the gospel.

How does one “see” the gospel?

We humans, with any self-reflection at all, seem to be acutely aware of how “human” we are. Our humanness surfaces each and every day. We feel human. We act human. Sometimes thankfully. Sometimes regrettably.
So, within this context of being “human”, how and when do we actually...    see more >>

Predestined to Life

Predestined to Life

Can we imagine a world wholly different than the one we are experiencing right now? A world as drastically different on a human level as the changes we have seen on a technological level since 1995?

It has been said, “It Has Become Appallingly Obvious That Our Technology Has Exceeded Our Humanity”.

Is there a means, now available on the planet, by which this change for the betterment of...    see more >>

It is a True Gospel Revolution

The-Good-News

Recently, I have been addressing an article written by Dr James Richards of Impact ministries, Huntsville, Alabama. While I have been at a loss as to just why Jim published this now, 20 years since I last saw him, it has presented itself as a really good teaching tool.

Jim lets everyone know, 20 years after the fact, that I, Michael Williams, have been “biblically” shunned!

The Testimony of God

“Experiences in life can carry a stern warning or a “wake-up call”, but just because we can connect some dots or learn something in the process does not merit the situation to have to take-on the “spiritual voodoo hyperbole” of “it happened for a reason.”

I just quoted myself. Is that allowed? Yep that is a quote from an article I wrote January 24, 2012 titled “Everything...    see more >>

The Greatest Flight

Muhammed Ali

It was the early 1980s.

The sad thing is I should be able to give the exact date and time it happened because Mohammad Ali signed my boarding pass stub on a flight in first class from Chicago to L.A.

The flight is also connected to my very first visit to Hawaii, a place I treasure.

One of Norvell Hayes’ friends was a travel agent and wanted to impress Norvell. So, the guy got me the first class...    see more >>

The Importance of Acknowledging a Once-Angry God

Mike Williams - President & Founder of Mike Williams Ministries & Gospel Revolution

Mike Williams – President & Founder of Mike Williams Ministries & Gospel Revolution

Did God ever repent, change his mind? Were his thoughts and emotions positively impacted by the successful mission of Christ? Are yours? Are mine? The answer to all of the above is a resounding “YES”!

Is it possible our collective intellect, will, and emotions are more like the Creator’s than we have ever imagined? Do we learn and grow in a similar way as he did?

In my case, as I’ve conveyed...    see more >>

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!

Wow! What a year 2015 was! First I would like to thank all of you who supported the Gospel Revolution during this past year. It was indeed a banner year because of you! Your monthly support kept us alive and your one-time gifts in each pledge drive are the boost we need every quarter to finish the task.

This last year we also experienced a measurable increase in understanding...    see more >>

The Journey in Context

I’ve been in the ministry 42 years now. When I first started teaching more in context, it began a new journey. Rather than teaching the way I was taught many years ago, which was for other purposes. I did like everybody else and I’d pick a verse in Timothy, one in Psalms, one out of Isaiah and one out of Revelation, put it all together and then find a Greek word that...    see more >>

The Mystery of the Gospel

June 14th, 15th and 16th, I will be teaching a new series entitled “The mystery of the gospel”. To-date I have completed two series about this mystery.

Let me tell you what a mystery...    see more >>

Outside of Sin

Like many of you, I teach and / or think on this gospel every single day of my life. I think about its consistent, fractal-like continuum, and it’s finite and infinite nature. Constantly, I am amazed that to date, I have not had to reply to a single question with even one if, and, but or maybe. Let’s face it my friends. We have struck gold! Of all the realities of the gospel, this one...    see more >>

The Psychology of the Gospel

Dear Family,

The general acceptance of a still-angry God and place of eternal punishments where he sends most people is to our society what the thought of a flat Earth was to antiquity. That’s how disconnected from reality it is. The almost complete and utter failures of our sociologists and psychologists to acknowledge, address, and affirm the devastating and mind-altering affect of this has been...    see more >>

Freedom From Guilt

GuiltIt seems to me the human race is on an unrelenting quest, do or die, toward the ever elusive freedom from guilt.

Freedom from guilt is so obscured from the realm of reality for us that The American board of Psychiatry and Neurology gives very contradicting views of the subject. Try and google “guilt and psychiatry.”  You will find numerous...    see more >>

95 Theses by Michael Williams

Nearly five hundred years ago, Martin Luther nailed his “95 Theses” to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany in what was then, the Holy Roman Empire. The religious world would never be the same. In it, Luther centered on practices within the Catholic Church regarding baptism and absolution of sin. The theses rejected the validity of indulgences (remissions of temporal punishment...    see more >>

A Story of True Conversion

This year, for Christmas I have received a gift beyond all gifts that I have ever received in my life. It is my great privilege to pass this gift on to you.

In July, I flew to the Orange County airport and rented a car to go spend time with my precious friend, Richard Mull, the king of comedy of the Gospel Revolution. It was a difficult trip on many levels. Richard and I both knew it would be the...    see more >>

At What Point?

At what point did it all change so completely? When did I stop feeling vulnerable and weak? It seemed like anything and everything could take me out mentally and emotionally at any moment – at any place. When did I stop feeling odd, peculiar, out of sync, out of place? How did I ever muster the strength to suffer devastating loss and walk on? Where did it become irrelevant if I were in a crowd...    see more >>

Wisdom will always beget freedom. Freedom will always seek wisdom. Wisdom creates nothing. Wisdom uses that which has been created to its highest potential!

I think I am seeing a beautiful pattern here.

Chance.

Chance is indeed an excellent name for a dog.

But please give me a chance! Not a dog but just a few minutes of your time. Because I think there is a chance.

No one really knows. There are no guarantees but there just may be a chance.

“Chance” is the thing we dread being stuck with. Yet, it is the thing we want just one more of. Just give me one more chance. Please?

Gospel Logic

Dear Family,

The first time I taught and declared the Gospel, the Good News of the Redemption of ALL, in the U.S. was in Denver, Colorado. Unfortunately, it was not recorded.

A MOMENT IN TIME

Dear Family,

There have been moments in time throughout history when a phrase coined in a certain way, a song, a poem, even just a thought resonates to such a degree that it can change the trajectory in the lives of scores of people. Sometimes echoes of the moment resound that it will affect the future of hundreds. And every so often a moment in time is so powerful that it alters...    see more >>

The Power of God

The Power of God…

No phrase on Earth has ever evoked more awe, excitement, fear, dread and amazement. Please pause for a moment and just imagine the inspiring implications which resulted, which are resulting, and which can result from this ultimate power.

The Scriptures declare how the Power of God created light and separated it from darkness. The Power of God organized the Universe....    see more >>

How In God’s Name

A Holy Corrupted Part 3

Dear Family,

In this the third installment of “A Holy Corrupted” God, I want to examine both extremes and opposing views about an angry God: “God was never angry” and “God was and still is angry.”

In the discussions I have had about this and with the questions that...    see more >>

A Holy Corrupted God 2

Dear Family,

Last week I introduced this series of new articles entitled “A Holy Corrupted God”. I did not intend to leave you hanging with such an audacious title with no explanation of why God could have been both Holy and Corrupt all at once. However, that’s just what I did! Ooops, my bad!

Anyway, many of you are familiar with my teaching on “The Image of God”.

In that teaching...    see more >>

The Power of Acknowledgment

Everything Happens For A Reason

“Everything happens for a reason.”

Really?!

“Everything happens for a reason” has got to be one of the most incorrect, mentally lazy, spiritually vapid statements on Planet Earth. It is, however, admittedly a creative way to organize the mess of our lives mentally and emotionally after the fact of what we credit for happening for a reason.

Dear Family,

It is Wednesday night, and we just finished our final show for The Start of Winter Pledge Drive.

To say that I am in a pensive mood would be an understatement. Saying my heart is moved with compassion for all who are involved in the Gospel Revolution is wholly insufficient.
