Thorns of Destruction

Jesus cut the church in half when he said, “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish” (Matthew 25:1-2). What happened to their oil? The parable of the sower indicates three...

Are You Washed in the Blood?

The question is not, “Are you saved,” but, “Are you washed in the blood of Jesus”? Just as surely as dirt is removed from washed hands, sin is presently and actually removed from a person washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. Of the specific acts of sin from which the apostle Paul indicates that...

The Second Work of Grace

In the first work of grace, a person is born again and saved from acts of sin. However, as in the Corinthian church, the inclination to sin remains. Jesus desires to sanctify entirely every believer so that this carnal nature is removed and the Christian is made perfect in love. This “high road,” as John Wesley called...

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....

The Greatest Need of the Church

The Church's greatest need is to lay aside everything she thinks she knows, read the Scriptures, and believe what they say. This will break the power of the traditions of Calvin, Luther, and Roman Catholicism that have twisted the plain meaning of key salvation words–grace, atonement, saved, and sin–resulting in a Gnostic, antinomian gospel that...

Do NOT Stonewall Jesus

After an outstanding welcome message from Psalm 40 by Sister Michelle, Pastor Ray discusses stonewalling–delaying or blocking a request, process, or person by refusing to answer questions, by giving evasive replies, or by a refusal to submit to Jesus (resulting in no outpouring of love). This is the final sign that you're about to turn...

Renounce All Sin (2006)

Are you inclined to run from God because there is shame in your life? This isn't a psychological problem–it is a real problem, because it means that there is sin from which you haven't repented. Repentance and confession are not the same. You can confess a sin and then go right back to it. But...

Three Loaves of Bread (2006)

Is the gift of the Holy Ghost an optional snack for you? Through the parable of the man begging his friend for three loaves at midnight, Jesus directs us to pray for the gift of the Holy Ghost with bold, persistent, urgency that will not be turned away. This begging process humbles our hearts and...

The Surprising Antichrist

Did you know that the antichrist is already here? Just as the Jews missed the Christ because he wasn't what they expected, many professing Christians miss the antichrist because it isn't what they expect. The antichrist is not a man who will rise up for a few years at the end of time. The antichrist...
