We Humble Our Hearts

Today’s message is an admonition to humble ourselves. If we’re unwilling to do that, there are a number of ditches we can fall into. Listen to the message and allow the Holy Spirit to show you where your heart is. It’s a very dangerous thing to add or subtract from what the scriptures teach.

Thorns of Destruction – 2005

In today’s encore sermon from the parable of the sower and the parable of the ten virgins, Pastor Ray describes the thorns of destruction. Listen and allow the Holy Spirit to identify any thorns in your heart. Are you willing to cry out to Jesus to remove these thorns from your heart?

That You May See!

After advising the church at Laodicea to buy gold tried in the fire (faith) and white robes (righteousness), our risen Lord adds, “and eye salve, that you may see.” This salve signifies the anointing of the Holy Spirit that allows us to see and hear what the Lord is doing and saying in this time. It includes both the spiritual awareness of one’s condition needed for true conversion and the Pentecost anointing that allows us to speak the word of…

The Refiner’s Fire

Jesus urges the church at Laodicea to “buy gold tried in the fire.” The gold is saving faith (1 Peter). The cost is to fully submit to Christ’s refining fire that purifies, sanctifies, and ultimately saves the soul as it walks in the promises of God and doesn’t give in to despair (Malachi 3). The resurrected Jesus is saying, “You’ve been very religious, but you’ve ducked and dodged the refiner’s fire.” You cannot be saved unless you allow the Holy…

Putting Out the Fire of God

Is there a fire for God in your heart? A close look at Jesus’ parable of the sower sheds light on his message to the lukewarm church at Laodicea. Like these early Christians, many in the modern American church, as well as much of the western world, have had the fire of God in their hearts diluted by the ice water of the responsibilities of life and pursuit of prosperity. Indifference to this concept is a sure sign that you are…

Hearing Jesus

Today’s welcome from Sister Michelle focuses on the parable of the sower. It’s time to no longer let the devil steal from us and allow Jesus full control and He will remove the stones, the thistles and the thorns in our hearts! (We had some recording challenges and lost much of the welcome but believe that it will still encourage you to surrender to Jesus, so we’re posting it.)

Thorns of Destruction (May 26, 2005)

In this sermon, the Holy Spirit illuminates the Parable of the Ten Virgins through the prism of the Parable of the Sower. May we be found with oil in our lamps and not asleep. Are you one of the ten virgins who are sleeping? It’s time to awaken from your slumber and ensure that these thorns of destruction are burned.

Planted in Jesus (May 22, 2005)

Using Mark 4, Pastor Ray talks about what it means to be planted in Jesus. Given the focus this week on the parable of the sower, this sermon is a great reminder of what it means to be planted in Jesus. May you decide to be deeply planted in Jesus, it’s a precious sermon. Don’t you want your roots to be in Jesus?

The Suffering Servant

In today’s broadcast, the fourth in a series on the impending judgment of God upon America using the four soils described in the parable of the sower, Pastor Ray talks about the last two kinds of soil using Luke 8. We must not only choose to be separated from all sin but we must be divorced from it. Victory will not come from a trial separation from sin. This divorce will bring intense suffering, along with great joy and peace as well. Cry…

The Gift of Losing My Will

Pastor Ray continues the illumination of the parable of the sower in Luke Chapter 8. The key to the parable of the sower is a willingness to suffer, as we deny ourselves take up our cross and follow Jesus. It’s dealing with that inner pain of our hearts and choosing to no longer satiate ourselves with something to numb the pain with whatever our drug of course has been. We must simply come and put down our roots in Jesus. There’s a…

Parable of the Sower

Today’s broadcast, as well as tomorrow’s broadcast, begin to deal with the parable of the sower in Mark 4. We must make that decision to be good soil with the full realization that it will cost everything for that to happen. Listen to the message and make a determination in your heart to fully give everything into His hand.

The Death of America

Today’s broadcast is an expansion of the Sunday Sermon, which focuses on the judgment of God upon America if the church fails to fully turn to the Lord God of heaven. The broadcast today focuses on why this is so and what God is after. Will you earnestly cry out to Jesus for Him to reign down righteousness upon America or will you be caught up in your own issues and leave this to someone else to do? It’s time…
