Staring Down the Shock Troops

The series title, Daring to Do as Stanley Dale begins to really take shape in and through this particular message. The time is now for the Church to regain its ancient moxie.

The Savior in the Thicket
This message is doubling as both a Sunday morning sermon for the Church at Ellerslie and the fifth episode in Eric Ludy’s epic fall Daily Thunder series, entitled Daring to Do as Stanley Dale, drawing on the boldness and bravery of the fearless missionary ventures to Irian Jaya (Papua New Guinea) during the twenty-five years from WW2 up until the massive harvest of souls in the 1960’s. In this episode he unpacks the extraordinary providence of God as shown both throughout Biblical history and in Christian missionary history throughout the past 2,000 years. Using the story of famed missionaries Don and Carol Richardson and their work in the 1960’s with the head-hunting Sawi people as his muse for this message, he showcases the awe-striking way God works to provide light for a people that are seemingly lost in total darkness. It is deeply moving and truly astounding.
This message is a celebratory mixture of the 700th Daily Thunder episode, The Ellerslie Sunday sermon, and the kick-off day for our Fall 2021 5-week training. This is also the very first episode in Eric Ludy’s epic fall Daily Thunder series, entitled “Daring to Do as Stanley Dale”. This series draws on the boldness and bravery of the fearless missionary ventures to Irian Jaya (Papua New Guinea) during the thirty-five years from WW2 up until the massive harvest of souls in the late 1960’s and 70’s. In this episode he explores the way God intentionally builds His men and women for the key swings in history — the key moments in the grand story. But, God doesn’t just build His heroes to share the Gospel Truth, but He also prepares the lost to respond to the Gospel Truth.
Dogs have a special way of revealing to us dimensions of the Kingdom of Heaven that are hard to comprehend otherwise. One of those heavenly qualities that dogs uniquely demonstrate to us is that of doggedness. The word “dogged” is very apropos for what dogs demonstrate. They don’t give up easily. They stand loyal in the darkest hour. They don’t measure their companionship based on the ease of the journey. And even when standing faithful would mean suffering, they stand steadfast by their master. It’s truly remarkable. But, the reason they demonstrate these astounding qualities is in order that we might be stirred by the Spirit of God to say, “Lord, make me dogged, just like that!”
Escaping the Viking Stronghold
The message of freedom in Christ Jesus has fallen out of favor in the modern Church system. The argument is that "freedom in Christ" is a promise bigger than God can deliver. Such a conclusion is the death knell of Christian vitality. When the Church of Jesus Christ begins putting greater faith in the power of the Devil to hold us in bondage to sin than in the power of Jesus Christ to set us free from it’s hold — darkness will reign, not only in our individual lives, but, in the world about us. There is a simple message delivered to us in and through the Scriptures: Jesus has come to set us at liberty from the power of Hell. We are no longer slaves to sin, but, rather, we our Christ’s freemen privileged to now serve Him as love-motivated bondservants.
Steeled for Action
The American Church seems prone to melting in the day of battle instead of rising up strong and courageous. The work of the Cross supplies us an incredible resolution, a stability of the inner man to take bold steps forward into the fog and difficulty of the spiritual war. Every Christian should crave the substance of this message in their soul and should go after it as a miner would pursue gold.
Eric Lucy is an arrow pointing others to Christ
The solid biblical truth and the passion to unite and shake-awake the modern American church is something that is sorely lacking in leaders today. It is encouraging to realize there are a few faithful people who are willing to sound to the world as foolish, to be wise in the sight of God. Eric teaches Jesus’ truth and allows God to use him in so many different, deep ways, and he wants us to do the same. I have been blessed and inspired with the teaching I’ve had, and would highly recommend this podcast to all those who profess Christianity. And if you don’t like what’s being said, examine your heart to make sure there is not sin in your life because he is on point and in tune with the Holy Spirit from all that I’ve heard.
Solid, Inspiring Teaching
I was born again in 2011 as a middle aged man, and you have been a huge part of my sanctification.
Thank you, brother.
Cheering you on as you continue your walk with Jesus Christ.
Led by the Spirit
These sermons have been spiritually life changing for me bc Ludy explains God’s Word in a way that I can understand. His sermons inspire me to dig deeper in the Word. He preaches from the Word, which is something most teachers don’t do. It is obvious to me that the Holy Spirit lives and works in this man bc no one could understand and be able to explain God’s Word if it wasn’t for the power of God. You are a light in this world Mr. Ludy.
