The Rhema of God (Hebrews 11)

In today’s sermon, Pastor Ray clearly articulate two critically important Greek words, which are logos and rhema. It’s important to know both of them in detail. The call of the Holy Spirit is to distinguish those rhema words from God versus the mundane and unimportant things and to cast those things aside. 

A Mind That Understands! (2004)

Today’s sermon classic will be a very helpful reminder for you, so I would encourage you to prayerfully listen. We can easily get off track in our walk with Jesus when we focus either on the past or the future, which leads us into taking control of our lives again as we begin once again to believe the lies of the devil. Fully give yourself into the mighty hand of Jesus and watch what He will do in your life!

Jesus Is the Foundation of Life (Encore)

On today’s encore broadcast, Pastor Ray uses a story from that wonderful book, Remarkable Miracles and G.C. Bevington. Is Jesus the foundation of your life or do you have some other foundation? 

Continuation of Hebrews Study

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray continues from the broadcast on Wednesday. Please prayerfully listen. Pastor spends a good bit of time discussing and contrasting Cain versus Abel and we must make that decision as Abel did to fully surrender our lives and all that we have to God.

The Journey of Faith (Hebrews 11:1-3)

Today’s sermon is an expansion of the Wednesday broadcast on Hebrews 11. Pastor Ray unveils an explanation of faith and a word by word definition of each word in the Greek. Go a Strong’s concordance and follow along. Pastor Ray gives an example of faith in action and something that was not faith. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart to understand this, I assure you it’s quite shocking but glorious nonetheless…

Vanity Fair (2009)

Today’s post is from the Springs of Living Water radio broadcast with Pastors Ray and Jan from 2009. They are speaking from the book Pilgrim’s Progress when Christian and Faithful went to the city of Vanity Fair. Surely our current culture is quite similar, with even more decadence and debauchery. Make the decision to go through Vanity Fair, regardless of the cost.

Is It Too Hard to Follow Jesus? (2011)

Consider this sermon, a review of the old and new covenants. Pastor Ray asks the question is it too hard to follow Jesus? Have you faced the truth about yourself before God? Is Jesus is simply an add-on to an already full life? You must make a decision to be crucified with Christ and it only becomes hard to follow Jesus when we’re walking under the law.

Shipwrecked? (2006)

On today’s broadcast, we aired a sermon from 2006 on the life of Peter. Pastor Ray takes an objective look at the life of Peter and to briefly summarize the sermon, Peter was unwilling to deal with his pride and wanted to serve Jesus in his flesh. My brother, my sister this will never work and the result will be pain and devastation to your life and in the midst of that, Jesus will come and say do you love me more than these? If you’re on course for being shipwrecked or even if you are already there, know that the heart of Jesus is to fully restore you, the question is whether or not you will repent of your pride and arrogance.

Faith That Changes the Ages!

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray explains what faith is, as well as the commonly misunderstood use of the term in the modern church. Listen to the message and go to a Strong’s concordance and follow along with the Greek, and the wonderful mystery of Hebrews 11 will be unfolded for you. Will you remain under the authority of Jesus and let Him accomplish what He wants in your heart and life?

An Answer to Hard Times

Pastor Ray continues his exposition of Hebrews by finishing up Hebrews 10, and integrates it with some other scriptures. It’s time to cast off the cheap cultural Christianity and the cotton candy Jesus and to be fully crucified with Jesus. Come in power to rescue your people Lord Jesus!

Will You Awaken from Your Slumber?

Today’s message is a call to wake up as we see chaos and destruction on every front. It’s time for the church to awake from its slumber. Are you awake or asleep in the Spirit? Have you believed in the lie of the sinning Christian, which has ultimately led to God’s judgment upon America (more than once). If you are asleep, don’t be content with that and cry out to Jesus for deliverance.

We Must See into the Realm of the Spirit

Today’s sermon is a continuation of the Elisha series, and the first part of the sermon focuses on the story in 2 Kings 6. The real meat of the sermon, however, is the clearest teaching in the scriptures on walking in the Spirit, which is found in Psalms 27. We begin to see in the Spirit as we stand on the promises of God, through the blood of Jesus. Listen closely to the sermon and determine in your heart that you will no longer serve Jesus in your flesh or what you see in the physical realm.

The Grateful Will See Jesus

Today Sister Kathryn intermingles the promise of Genesis 3:15 with Romans 1 & 2. We need to be continually mindful and thankful of what Jesus has and is doing in our hearts and lives. Listen and be encouraged to fully trust Jesus.

A Good Report? (August 2006)

Today’s sermon classic is primarily about Daniel and him being cast into the lion’s den. Daniel was willing to give up his expectations and opted to put his full trust in God. The good report is that Daniel fixed his eyes upon Jesus (i.e. he prayed, he didn’t quit), despite his circumstances. What would have happened if God didn’t deliver Daniel in the way we thought he should be delivered? Does God have to work out your circumstances in a particular way and will you trust Him, regardless of what your circumstances may appear? This is where the good report emerges!

Draw Near to God with a Sincere Heart

Pastor Ray continues with the study of Hebrews, today’s focus being on the first half of Hebrews 10 and John 15. We would strongly encourage you to read and pray before you begin to listen to the broadcast. Make a decision in your heart that you will believe Jesus to break every bondage and set you free to serve Him, and others at the call of the Holy Spirit. It’s a sobering and straightforward word straight from the heart of Jesus.

I Must Have a High Priest!

Pastor Ray continues with the exposition of Hebrews and the wonderful opening of the heart of God to fully transform us.   2 Peter 1:3-4 “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.  Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” As our dear brother David stated last night, our emotions must be tethered to the promises of God. Jesus came to remove your sin now and fully destroy the works of the devil!

Do You Have a Need for a High Priest?

Today’s message is a heart cry from the Holy Spirit to intervene, even as God’s great judgments are imminent. Listen to the message and let the Holy Spirit create this same cry in your heart for Jesus to come and rescue America from its wickedness.

Is There Poison in Your Pot?

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray spends the first half of the broadcast discussing story of Elisha and the poison pot of stew and Hebrews 7. The poison in our hearts must be removed by the flour, which represents bread (i.e. Jesus!). He goes to discuss that the law makes nothing perfect. Is your thinking is still under the law than you’re walking in legalism and you will never achieve perfection. This has led many in the modern church in America to make the transition to Gnosticism. Listen closely and make the decision to walk in the Spirit. Jesus wants to remove all of the poison in your pot.

The Process of Salvation

Today’s sermon is a continuation of the Elisha series and the process of salvation. The process begin as the Holy Spirit calls us and we make a decision to fully submit to Jesus and resist the devil. In that place, Jesus calls us deeper into the desert and eventually will bring us into the promised land. This is no quick or easy work but there’s joy as Jesus feeds us the manna and He encourages us to endure. How far are you willing to go with Jesus?

Washing the Feet of the World

Today’s welcome is from John 13 and Sister Michele asks a critical question “Are you willing to come to a place where you’re willing to be washed and fully cleansed by Jesus?” That’s something that Jesus wants to do in our hearts but it requires that same earnestness demonstrated by Peter.
