The Coming of the Holy Spirit – 2003

In today’s encore sermon, Pastor Ray talks about the coming of the Holy Spirit. For a Christian to receive this double blessing of power and purity, you must renounce all rebellion in your heart. Practically, you ensure that every area of your life and self belong to Jesus. You give up all sin. And, more than that, you give up every questionable habit. We must not yield to our feelings, but by what we know. Then, with Jesus as your…

The Kindness and Sternness of God – 2008

A wonderful sermon exhorting us to trust in the work of Jesus. That’s very much contrary to the modern church’s view of Jesus. Let’s submit to whatever the Holy Spirit identifies as sin and walk free in Jesus.

Jesus is Praying for You!

Today’s message is a continuation from the call yesterday to be crucified with Christ. Is that the cry of your heart today? Allow the Holy Spirit to bring the deep conviction necessary to move the heart of Jesus, to bring us into this baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire!

Are You a Fruit-bearer in Jesus?

The question today is whether you are a fruit-bearer as referenced by John the Baptist. This fruit is evidenced in our behavior by our sacrificial love to others and our direct obedience to the Holy Spirit. It’s a frightful place to be cut off from Jesus. Endure the pruning and trust Jesus regardless of the cost! (Please note: we have no video available today.)

How to Bear Fruit

Christians don’t produce fruit; they bear fruit. Often, people think that they have to “work on” being patient, kind, humble, or forgiving. But all the Christian virtues–such as patience, forgiveness, and love–are produced in a person by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that if we would remain or abide in him, we would bear this fruit. Pastor Ray shares how you can transition from trying to produce your own fruit to bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit. When we…

The Coming of the Holy Spirit (2003)

In addition to power, love and righteousness characterize the coming of the Holy Spirit. For a Christian to receive this double blessing of power and purity, you must renounce all rebellion in your heart. Practically, you ensure that every area of your life and self belong to Jesus. You give up all sin. And, more than that, you give up every questionable habit. Then, with Jesus as your only source and supply, you beseech him for the baptism of the…

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…

A Great Delusion (October 2014)

Following up on yesterday’s broadcast, Pastor Ray shows that the great delusion (2 Thessalonians 2:11) which will lead many to receive the mark of the beast is the word manipulation of key salvation terms. While the Protestant Reformation made a vital break with the Roman Catholic Church over salvation by faith, and not works, it did not restore apostolic Christianity. Instead, the doctrine that Jesus received the full wrath of God for the elect, thereby legally satisfying their debt, developed…

A New Beginning of Obedience to God

A person who looks into Jesus’ face, and sees the hardness and arrogance of his own heart, will respond with strong feelings and pained weeping. Once this sin is exposed, it cannot be covered; it must be removed by Jesus. Looking into theology, being distracted, or believing that when God looks at you he sees Jesus, will comfort the heart in its sin so that it doesn’t have to go through the pain of considering its real condition and what…

The Sacrifice of Intercession (February 2005)

Today’s sermon is a follow-up from last Saturday’s broadcast. Using the story of Moses, Pastor Ray lays out the process where we become intercessors, as we come to fully abide in Christ. Listen to the sermon and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal how God wants to this process to occur in your own life (i.e. to make you an intercessor).

Loving My Beloved

The focus of today’s sermon is again on the binding of the strong man (from Matthew 12). Pastor Ray asks two critical questions as you listen to this: (1) Can the Holy Spirit through you use the power of the blood of Jesus to bind the strong man (to break the devil’s control) in your life in some specific way (e.g. in your marriage, with your health, with someone in your family who needs Jesus or some other impossible circumstance)…
