The Every Creature Vision

On December 26, 1934, the Holy Spirit revealed the Every Creature Vision to Rees Howells. Just as the Savior came to make atonement for the whole world, so would the Holy Spirit live in the bodies of 10,000 people who would be channels to bring the gospel of holiness to every person on earth. This is the purpose of the National Prayer Chapel. Will you sacrificially give at the call of the Holy Spirit to move Pilgrim’s Progress to National FM radio?

Thank you to those who called and gave to cover the cost of radio for January! God bless you!

Union with Jesus

Are you in union with Jesus? Rees Howells’ testimony illustrates the need to abandon selfishness, which is sin, in order to enter and stay in union with Jesus. The gospel is designed to eradicate selfish motives and draw one’s heart into pure benevolence. On the nature of this change, Charles Finney writes, “If you love God, you cannot reflect that you have wounded his feelings, without pain. You would not complain that you could not repent: The truth is, that if you were in the exercise of love for God, you could not help repenting[…]Christian, is this your experience?

Unspotted by the World (Encore)

The story of Rees Howells shows the necessity of entire sanctification after the new birth. In order for Jesus to live in our bodies, as he intends to do, we must give him complete control of our lives. Revival in America hinges on individuals who will make this total consecration to Jesus.  Beloved, will you go on to perfection? Or will you refuse to submit completely and unconditionally to Jesus? This welcome and sermon were originally preached on October 23, 2016.

Jesus’ Banner of Love

What motivates your life? Is it the banner of love from Jesus, or is it all about you, in whatever form that may take? The work of God will never be accomplished in our lives until we allow the Holy Spirit total, unconditional possession of our bodies. We must have faith to leave our pigpens and renounce each one, through the blood of Jesus, and claim God’s banner of love over our lives.

O, beloved, this is not optional for any who would name the name of Jesus! If you refuse this work, how will you stand on the Day of Judgment? Holiness isn’t optional. How will you answer those you claim to love and adore, who will go to hell simply because you were unwilling to die to your pride?

Unspotted by the World

In the welcome, Sister Michelle asks the question “What do you think God is thinking about America and your life?” using Psalm 32 and 2 Corinthians 7 as the text.  Pastor Ray details what entire sanctification looks like in the life of the believer.  The modern church’s denial of entire sanctification is simply a refusal to submit to JesusAre you willing to undergo the process laid out in the life of Rees Howells (and the scriptures) to utterly give your life into His control? Do you understand that without holiness, no one will see the Lord (See Hebrews 12:4)?

Quickened by Christ

The Holy Spirit is a person who must live in bodies. If you have been born again, have you given that new life to Jesus? Have you given up not only your sin, but your self? Or have you withheld and stolen from God by keeping that new life in Christ for yourself? It is easy for us to blow off this question, but we must give it honest consideration. Will you give your body to the Holy Spirit? Will you let him live in your body just as really as he lived in the body of Jesus Christ?

Willing to Be Made Willing? (Encore)

In today’s Saturday sermon, Pastor Ray discusses Chapter 5 (The Holy Spirit Takes Possession) of “Rees Howell: Intercessor” by Norman Grubb.  As we begin to abide in Jesus, He takes us all the way to the bottom. We must then go to the same place as described by Rees and Pastor Ray, where finally our lives are fully given to Jesus. In that place, the Holy Spirit comes and asks us if we’re willing and will make us “willing to be made willing” if we willingly go to the cross. Are you willing to move out of your life and will you trust the Holy Spirit to pull you through?

Binding the Strong Man

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray  details Chapter 9 from the book “Rees Howell: Intercessor” . The work of the Spirit is done in intercession, so listen to this closely, as all Christians are called to be intercessors.

Don’t Let Circumstances Turn Your Heart from Jesus (Encore)

Today’s broadcast was the last in a mini-series of sorts from Norman Grubb’s book, “Rees Howells: Intercessor.” These messages were originally recorded shortly before the last Presidential election and we see the palpable increase of wickedness over these last four years. It’s time for us to get a hold of God and pray before it’s too late but that takes a willingness to allow Jesus to create a foundation of faith in our hearts as we fully surrender and are crucified with Him. Ignorance is simply unacceptable as the Holy Spirit will teach us to pray. It’s not a time to turn from God because He won’t do what we want, the cry of our hearts must be “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done” regardless of what that will cost us.

Intercession for Dunkirk (Encore)

Today’s broadcast is a follow-up from yesterday and continues with an expansion of this assurance that comes as we are fully given into the hand of Jesus. The specific topic in Norman’s Grubb book entitled “Rees Howell: Intercessor” covers the Battle of Intercession for Dunkirk as well as the intercession for this radio broadcast.

What Is the Foundation of Your Faith? (October 30, 2012)

Do you have a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ or do you simply have a vague hope in Him? Using personal experience and the life of Rees Howells, Pastor Ray makes a clear distinction between hope versus assurance. This broadcast will revolutionize your prayer life if you’re able to get a hold of it.

Trust in Jesus for the Victory! (October 29, 2012)

Today’s rebroadcast is from October 2012 and it’s even more true than originally broadcast. Using the book “Rees Howell: Intercessor” by Norman Grubb, Pastor Ray recounts the battle in prayer against the Nazis by Rees Howells and the BIble School of Wales. Surely we are in the same place that they were, except this is the last day battle. It’s time to be bold and stand for Jesus and integrity and righteousness.

Principles of Intercession (October 15, 2012)

During today’s encore broadcast, Pastor Ray recounts how the Holy Spirit began to teach him the principles of intercession. He also goes through how the Holy Spirit taught a dear brother named Rees Howells in that classic book entitled “Rees Howells: Intercessor.” Do you believe that God can and will move in the physical realm as we begin to seek His face and not His hand?

Rees Howells’ Intercession against Fatalism (Encore)

Many of us have heard of the miraculous deliverance of Great Britain in World War 2 and the bravery of the British People and their courageous leader, Winston Churchill. That was the front side of the story but here was also a back side.  Rees Howells was a coal miner turned minister of the Gospel, who went on to found the Bible College of Wales. Rees Howells and his fellow prayer warriors were the back side of the Allies victory over the Nazis. Listen to this incredible saga of spiritual warfare and the disciples who prayed in the victory during the greatest war the world has ever seen. Make a decision to simply take God at His word and no longer believe the fatalistic lies of the devil.

No Longer Self-Centered (Encore)

We apologize for the delay in posting this one, we had an issue with the recording and had to use a back-up recording, so the quality is a bit lower. The topic at hand is focuses on the end to the self life. Pastor Ray focuses on a chapter in that wonderful book “Rees Howells Intercessor” (Chapter 7) of how God worked that out in Rees’ heart. Will you allow Jesus to remove all selfishness from your heart as you listen?

Are You Ready to Enter the School of the Holy Spirit?

Using the book entitled Rees Howells Intercessor authored by Norman Grubb, Pastor Ray details how Rees entered the school of the Holy Spirit. One of the key things that Rees discovered was that the Holy Spirit was a person.  We must lay aside everything, walk in the blood of Jesus and ask for enmity against the devil and his works. This is a very serious decision, a life and death one, and we must enter this school, if we are to go to heaven. We must dwell either in light or in darkness, there is no middle ground. This requires an unconditional surrender of our lives, are you willing to enter the school of the Holy Spirit?
