In Christ Jesus!

Are you in Christ Jesus or is Jesus with you? We encourage you to listen to the broadcast and follow along in your Bible.

Living Above Sin?

Pastor Ray begins talking about Romans 7 in today’s broadcast. Have you died to the law, your own self efforts to make yourself holy and have you surrendered fully to Jesus? Does your life reflect the decisions you’ve said you made. Listen and allow the Holy Spirit to deal with your heart today. Jesus died to set you free but it will cost you your life in order for this to be manifested in your own life.

Married to the Devil (2003)

God describes a Christian’s covenant with Jesus Christ as a “marriage.” As with any marriage, this covenant requires faithfulness. To be faithful to God is to love him wholeheartedly and to obey him. However, all sinners are married to the devil. This is evident by their unrighteous actions. In order to marry Jesus, a person must first divorce the devil. You may say, “I’m not married to the devil. I’m my own person. I’m just going to live my way,”…

The Truth of Romans 7

The truth of Romans 7 cannot be found out of context. Romans 6, 7, and 8 clearly show that Christians do not sin. The true Christian has a clean conscience because Jesus has saved him from sinning. The venom of the serpent who said that if you sin, “You will not surely die,” has bitten the American church and we are indeed dying. This lie alleviates the distress of a mind convinced of sin and excuses a person to eat…

The Lie of the Sinning Christian

American and Western Christians today are the children of a modern age of heresy. We possess unprecedented education for pastors, previously unheard of resources for radio and television, and greater religious freedom than ever before–and yet billions around the world, more than at any other point in history, have never heard the name of Jesus. What has so paralyzed the Christian church and resulted in her degradation into sin and failure to fulfill the Great Commission? The fault is not…

Nothing Is Hidden from God

When Achan stole and hid gold, silver, and fine clothing from God, the Lord withdrew from Israel, and thirty-six people died in battle. The Lord exposed Achan’s sin to all Israel, who stoned and burned Achan and his family. Just as the fire of judgment consumed Achan, the fires of hell will consume us if we do not allow the Holy Spirit to probe us and uncover the worst parts of our hearts. And just as Achan’s brothers died because…

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…

Seeds of Destruction

The battle is on for the soul of America. Morality is crashing in America as the pulpits no longer burn with righteousness and no longer directly confront sin. The seeds of destruction have created an “inclusive” gospel that no longer rebukes sin or legalistic righteousness that’s full of rigidity, with no underlying power. It’s time that these seeds of destruction be removed from the church through the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, so that a pure gospel can…

How Do We Escape a Burning World? (Encore)

Our only means of escaping the wickedness of this world, is by crucifixion and union to Jesus. If we walk under sin, we’re still under the law. Listen to the exposition of Romans and determine in your heart that you will leave this prison planet, through the dynamite power of God, made available to you by the blood of Jesus. Throw off the lie of the sinning Christian and leave this burning world today.

Are You Saved? (Encore)

If we are to be saved, we must be saved out of all sin. In this modern culture, we’ve simply intellectualized it, thereby deceiving ourselves. The great lie is that a man can be saved and remain in his sin. Are you still sinning or are you saved out of it?

Made Holy by Faith

A debilitating lie persists in the American church: the lie that Christ saves us from the penalty of sin, by faith, but then we must “do our best,” with Jesus’ help, to live a godly life. Pastor Ray Greenley shares his testimony of the frustration of living in Romans 7 until he learned the true meaning of justification. We are not merely viewed as righteous, but we are actually made righteous: not by works, but by faith. Will you seize…
