While Christians are sleeping, America is being stolen out from underneath our feet. Not only is suffering increasing as American values and culture are eviscerated, but the work of the gospel is being hindered and shut down. Using the story of Ulysses S. Grant, who in ten years went from being a washed up, drunken, nobody to the president of the United States, and victor of the U.S. civil war, Pastor Ray shows that the American church must likewise transition from washed up impotence to fighting in the prayer closet for righteousness. Do you have the guts to leave your sin and fight for the soul of America?
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!
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.
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 Jesus. Are 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)?
Expectations (of others and also ourselves) destroy the work of Christ in our hearts and are one of the primary tools of satan and his minions. When we willingly lay down our demands of how life should be and how other people should behave, we can walk in love and be totally cleansed from depravity and moral uncleanness through the precious blood of Jesus. Will you humble your heart today?
There’s nothing more important to us than the presence of God in our lives. Money, success, accomplishments and all of the ways of the world fail to bring the presence of God into our lives. Using the story of Moses, Pastor Ray, describes how God created this need in the heart of Moses. If there is no presence of God in our lives, there will be no righteous living and no righteousness. Are you willing to cry out for God’s presence in your life, realizing that it will cost you everything?
