Love Is Strong as Death

“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave” (Song of Solomon 8:6). This is how Jesus wants us to feel about him. The Christian faith isn’t about “doing it right” or “believing the right way”–it’s about being transformed into a new creature by the blood of Jesus Christ. The normal Christian life is oneness with Jesus: a soul freed from all rebellion and sin, and filled with hunger and love for Jesus. We may follow Jesus while trapped in the cycle of “sin and repent,” but we will not be one with Jesus. Do your actions and words show that your love for Jesus is as unyielding as the grave?

In preparation for tomorrow’s broadcast, Pastor Ray suggests reading the book of Malachi, Hebrews 10, and Romans 6.

Venturing Out on the Promises of God (2008)

Unlike contracts, covenants are confirmed with blood. The old covenant, with blood between God and Israel, required legal obedience under punishment of death. While the law says, “You have to stop what you’re doing wrong and try harder to do what’s right,” the new covenant contained in the blood of Jesus says, “Lay down distractions, busy-ness, and all other loves. Turn to the face of Jesus and ask to be his bride.Practically, this means seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and trusting Jesus to give you exactly what he wants you to have. Have you left the abuse of the devil and entered this blessed rest of Jesus?

Another November 2016 Offertory Day (Psalm 23)

It is the last day of the month, and we are standing by faith that Jesus will cover the cost for Pilgrim’s Progress to be on the air. He pays for what He orders! Enjoy some hymns, and listen as Pastor Ray shares promises from the Scriptures.

Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

Using Psalms 23 and a story in Pilgrim’s Progress, Pastor Ray describes this walk through the valley of the shadow of death. In that place there are ditches on either side, one being moral failure and the other being false doctrine. Will you make that decision to walk in the strength of the Lord?

Shaped for a Noble Purpose

It is an absolute necessity to carefully examine our character flaws, and take them to Jesus. All of us suffer from these character flaws, which can and will lead to sinful ways if we fail to allow Jesus to remove them from our hearts. Taking the life of Saul, Pastor Ray describes the incredible amount of damage that these character flaws can bring into our lives. Although our early lives and backgrounds may have shaped our character, we must take responsibility and through repentance allow the blood of Jesus to totally change us or we’re in great danger of being ensnared from the residual effects of these character flaws. Will you be like Saul who absolutely refused to deal with this issue or will you humble your heart and let Jesus have the victory as King David did?

Healed by Jesus in the Way That Jesus Chooses (Encore)

Jesus has the power to heal and restore. Using the story from Brother Bevington, and the story of Pastor Jan, the sweetheart and partner of Pastor Ray, he describes the process. God’s healing must be done His way in His own time. Brother Bevington was healed of broken ribs and Pastor Jan was fully healed and left this world to be with Jesus. Do you believe that Jesus has the power to heal you?
