Today’s message is an encouragement is that Jesus will carry us, in the sorrow of our hearts, as we are crucified with Christ. Our task is to allow the suffering, which leads to our growth, as long as we don’t rebel against it. Give yourself to Jesus and trust Him to carry you through the desert!
In order to make it to the Celestial City, both our outward and inward lives must reflect true holiness. This will require much repentance and many tears even though these actions will not earn salvation but rather they reflect the decision we’ve made to follow Jesus come what may. Pastor Ray briefly references a character from Pilgrim’s Progress named Talkative, who talked the talk but inwardly was a brute beast and an enemy of Jesus. Who are you? Are you…

Pastor Ray continues in Pilgrim’s Progress as Christian leaves the valley of humiliation. The call is to put off the old man and put on the new man.

Today’s broadcast was a special live presentation about the “death to self” that Pastor Ray has been talking over in detail over the last couple of weeks.

We must recognize the condition of the church, including that of our own hearts, and allow the Holy Spirit to bring us into a wide place of importunity. We must be made holy and baptized by the Holy Spirit and fire. Are you ready to make that leap of faith and trust Jesus to bring you through?
We die by giving ourselves up by a full and unequivocal surrender to Jesus where our life ends. Listen to this encouraging broadcast today, focusing upon the book of Galatians. Have you been crucified with Christ?
If the desire of your heart is to be Hungry for More of Jesus (taken perhaps from a book written by David Wilkerson in 1992) than today’s message is for you.

Listen and follow along in your Bible and know that Jesus wants to meet the cry of your heart today!

Pastor Ray calls us to dig a bit deeper using many of the same scriptures from yesterday and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal our own hearts unfettered by religion or even our own experiences. Many of us have unconsciously or perhaps even consciously grieved the Holy Spirit. The call is to humble ourselves before Jesus and we must have a fixed determination in our hearts to allow Jesus to fully rule over us and then walk that out. Be…
