The Gospel of the Kingdom of God

What is the gospel of the kingdom of God? It begins with the divine authority of Jesus ruling over all things. Jesus is the conqueror of mens’ hearts and of culture to drive out rebellion, destroy the power and works of the devil, and restore God’s creation to obedience to God, health and total restoration. There is a war going on, and if you are not in this battle with Jesus, you are against Him. Will you devote every fiber of…

Absolute Surrender!

God knew that Abraham was sold out to Him when Abraham didn’t withhold his son Isaac. Today, God tests us to see if we’re withholding anything from Him. God isn’t stingy–He will provide. He wants to give us His son! But, if we hold onto our life, we will be robbed of the power to live righteously. Are you absolutely surrendered to Jesus?

Two Paths Clearly Marked (2008)

Unlike forest trails, which are quickly overgrown, the path of light and the path of darkness have many clear markings. The first is identified by an active faith, bold confession, and absolute, sold-out dependence on Jesus; the second, by a divided heart, hiding one’s sin, and self-reliance. In spite of these clear markings, we may trick ourselves about which path we’re walking. Just because the path of light leads through a dark area doesn’t mean we’ve sinned. Likewise, temporal ease…

The Testimony of Righteousness

In this vulnerable testimony, Pastor Ray shares his experience of entire sanctification. Entire sanctification is not some mystical experience: it is simply a covenant confirmed with Jesus that, “I disown my life, and I will receive from Jesus only what he chooses to give me.” As we deny ourselves the right to provide for ourselves, the Holy Spirit leads us down a path of suffering that eradicates selfishness and produces real righteousness. Have you made this covenant with Jesus? Are…

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,…

God’s Redemptive Plan for the Church!

The bride of Christ, the church, will overcome and be forever holy and wedded to Jesus! God has set His heart on the church and put her on display to the entire universe. This is the big picture of salvation. Will you choose to be part of that holy wife of God?

God’s Purpose in Our Suffering

Is being a Christian hard? This is true only if you’re trying in your own strength and power to be a  Christian. The good news is that real righteousness, just like salvation, is a free gift from Jesus. The gospel doesn’t require you to white knuckle the monsters in your life. Power and victory come when we die to self, give Jesus total control, and endure all hardship and suffering as the necessary discipline from God to make us holy.…

O God, Awaken My Heart!

Jesus’ heart overflows with grief when he has to send sinners to hell. Will you compel Him to do so based on the choices you’re making? You may intellectually know the gospel, but choose things that “unsave” you, and will subsequently ruin your soul for eternity. Will you join John Bunyan’s Christian and run to the narrow gate today? Welcome message by Sister Michelle

The Famine Is Over!

Naomi’s two daughters both came to the border of Israel: Ruth went through, but Orpah turned back to Moab. It’s time for you to leave the border. Will you totally renounce Jesus Christ? Or will you renounce all other loves, and unite yourself to Jesus Christ? O beloved, won’t you come home?

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…

No Longer Hostile to God (Encore)

Do you love and submit to Jesus in truth, or have you buried and ignored hostility in your mind towards God? If we think that God exists to help us get what we want, we are in rebellion. Jesus will never be a mere consultant: He will either own and carry your whole life, or He will be absent! Do you experience the joy of the Holy Spirit that comes from step by step daily submission (not by hard work)…
