Two Sources of Righteousness?

We thank you to those precious ones who stepped up at the calling of the Holy Spirit to cover this month’s radio bill! There are only two sources of righteousness, which of these are you walking under? Pastor Ray talks about the source of righteousness that comes through Christ as we repent and surrender ourselves to Him. Will you allow Jesus to put enmity in your heart against sin, so that you can be free to serve Jesus? Are you…

Jesus, Come Find Me!

Are you wandering through life–unhappy with who you are, wondering, “Why am I even here?” Do you see destructive patterns of behavior that you just can’t stop, no matter how hard you try? Jesus Christ is diligently searching for you. His heart is to rescue you from sin. If you let him, he will find you. If you give your entire life to Jesus, he will convert you. You will leave behind your old, painful life of sin and darkness.…

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…

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…

Do Not Force God to Leave You (November 2016)

The Spirit of God confronts us with the holiness of God and our own, particular sins. If we persistently reject the Spirit of God with excuses, grumbling, or rebellion; or by insisting, “I sin every day, and God is just going to have to accept me how I am,” the Holy Spirit will leave us. Such persons may be left with a shell of religion, but they are lost. This earth exists because God has preordained a church that will…

Is Jesus Trying to Kill Me? (2009)

The Lord has said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” But Jesus died so that our soul does not have to die! So how are we to die with Christ? We are to die first to our sinful actions, and second to our sinful nature. The sin nature is not part of our soul—it is a foreigner that affixes itself to our soul and controls it. Genesis 3:15 promises that this control is not total. You can repent! Glory…

Jesus IS the Atonement

For the past 1,000 years, the doctrine of penal atonement, developed by Saint Anselm, has pervaded Christian churches of nearly every denomination. The Puritans, John Wesley, and Charles Finney were some who stood against this false teaching that Christ literally became sin and that believers will always be sinners. An in-depth look at Scripture, in translation and in the original Greek, reveals that Jesus Christ is atonement and that he offered himself to forgive our past sins and to remove sin from us…

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?

Married to the Devil?

Although the focus this week has been on the study of James, this sermon fits in with the theme this week as Pastor Ray talks about the law of marriage, laid out in Matthew and the book of Romans. You cannot be married to Jesus and married to the devil at the same time, no more than you can be in New York City and Washington DC at the same time. Are you willing to end the wasted years you’ve…

The Unfinished Work (James 1:21-22)

The welcome deals with the life of Jacob and Sister Kathryn points out we must wrestle with God until we overcome all enmity and pride that blocks the grieving process. The focus on Pastor Ray’s sermon is primarily on Jephthah’s daughter, who agreed with her father that her life was over and spent time mourning over the loss of it. Have you agreed with Jesus that your life is over? Have you completed the mourning over the loss of your…

The Footsteps of God

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray explains how we can see the footsteps of God, not only in history but in our own lives. He talks about how this was worked out in Abraham’s life to separate good and evil. God’s purpose is to destroy the works of the devil, do you see the footsteps of God in your life?

A Gift from God (That Keeps God Talking!)

On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray continues the study of Hebrews with a focus on what is real, which only comes from the hand of God. He reviews both the “Logos” (the creative idea behind everything that is created, i.e. Jesus) and “Rhema” (the breathed word of God). Listen closely to understand the difference between the offering made by Abel and Cain and determine in your heart to be an Abel and no longer to be a Cain (a wanderer).
