Strengthen Your Weak Knees!

Are you in need of encouragement in this desert journey as we travel toward that Celestial City? If so, we highly encourage you to listen to today’s broadcast and to put all your confidence in Jesus!

Forgiveness and Repentance

Listen to Pastor’s Ray message as he talks about forgiveness and repentance. He lays out the three revelations needed in order to walk with Jesus in forgiveness and repentance. Do you see the great need of forgiveness and repentance in your life?

The Purpose of God (in Your Life) (Radio Remix)

Do you know the purpose of God for your life? God shaped all of earth’s history through men and women’s faith in a rhema word from Him. Jesus Christ invites you, as a member of his church, to do the same. If you do know the purpose of God for your life, are you walking in it in faith? If not, will you? Or, if this is new to you, listen to this week’s messages, including this one. Sister Kathryn’s…

The Purpose of God (in Your Life)

This thrilling sermon lays out that all of earth’s history has been shaped by men and women’s faith in a rhema word of God–and that God wants to do the same with you, as a member of His church. Are you cognizant of God’s Spirit-breathed word (i.e. his rhema) of the specific purpose of your life? Are you obeying it? If this is new to you, you must listen to this message and be encouraged to get to Jesus NOW…

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.…

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…

Walk Out Your Faith! (2005)

In today’s sermon from 2005, Pastor Ray talks about how Blind Bartimaeus decided to walk out his faith. We must unabashedly seek Jesus to heal our blindness and walk out our faith as well. There’s a humbling that must take place before God and others so that God can change us. As we begin to totally abide in Jesus, He comes in great power and begins to transform us by His power and might. What an awesome privilege to serve…

A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken!

During today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray talks about the parallel between the Israelites in Numbers 13 and 14 and much of the modern church, who believe that there is no victory over sin. There is a limit we can reach where we are denied the ability to repent because we have crossed a threshold and God may cut us off.  Hebrews 12:28-29 (NIV) Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence…

How Will You Survive in Rephidim? (Hebrews 12)

As Moses lead the Israelities to Rephidim, God leads us to that same place. Rephidim literally means “a place in the desert,” which is where God tests our hearts and our attitudes before Him. Every true Christian has a place of great suffering and/or great suffering in the midst of compassion for those around them. It’s time to get serious with Jesus, as He is God Almighty and leave this illusion that we have any power, when in reality we have none, we’re simply…

Pursue Peace and Purity

During today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray talks about God’s great design to give us heart purity,  where we no longer participate in the wickedness of the world. There is no purification of heart without suffering as the author of Hebrews says  “You must pursue peace with all men and the holiness (or purity) without which no one will see the Lord. (from the Lavender New Testament).” Make the decision to not walk in bitterness, which inevitably will lead to sin.

God’s Purpose in Our Suffering and Hardship

Pastor Ray continues the study of Hebrews today. Today’s focus is on God’s purpose in suffering and hardship in our lives. These things are the handlebars that God uses to grab our attention, so that we may turn our hearts fully in surrender to Jesus Christ.  Can you identify how God has brought hardship in your life as discipline to turn your heart toward heaven? Jesus wants to get your attention so that He can shape you into His image and…

A Call to the Half-Converted

Today Pastor Ray discusses Hebrews 11 and 12, and includes some extensive reading from Jonathan Edward’s sermon entitled “Sermons in the Hands of an Angry God.” In that day, many in the church thought they could have the things of this world and Jesus too, it didn’t work in his day, nor will it work now. Listen to the message and determine if you are indeed half-converted and make the decision to give yourself fully into the hand of Jesus. The half-converted…
