Second August Offertory

Victory! We praise Jesus today for covering the last of this month’s Pilgrim’s Progress radio bill! Thank you to all who gave this month and in this second August offertory–we pray God’s blessing on you! We prayed and stood on these Scriptures for this month’s radio cost: Matthew 6:33, 1 John 5:14-15, John 15:7. And...

August 2017 Offertory

When you give to Pilgrim’s Progress, what are you supporting? First, you’re supporting a straight gospel proclamation and the work of revival in Washington, D.C. Not only that, but you’re sending the gospel to thousands who listen each month in Japan and Ireland. We began this August 2017 offertory with a need of $1,325. By...

Four Steps to Revival

Revival can sound like a big, nebulous concept. But, these four steps to revival simplify our thinking and give Christians some traction. First, you hear the word of God. Second, you repent of all sin and consecrate yourself to Jesus. Third, as a result of step number two, you are born again. You live a...

Begone Unbelief!

Begone Unbelief!

Do you believe that you can never stop sinning? If so, you’re in unbelief about the most basic element of the gospel: Jesus saves us from sinning. In order for God to transfer us to his kingdom of light, he first has to make us holy. Becoming holy–which is conversion–is a choice. It is dying...

Ye Shall Bear Much Fruit

Today’s welcome by Pastor Ray Greenley is from John 15:1-7. Jesus promised that if we would abide in Him, that we would bear much fruit for His kingdom. The lack of fruit in much of the American church does not void this promise. Instead, it shows that we need to repent and truly abide in...

Prayer Is the Breath of the Soul (2010)

Prayer is the breath of the soul. God’s will is that we rejoice in Jesus and pray without ceasing. When sin blocks us from prayer, it’s like we stop breathing. The parable of the sower offers three explanations for why this can happen. But ultimately, to keep the faith until the end, we need to...

What Is Revival?

What is revival, and why is it important? What makes revival happen? Is God calling for revival right now? The answers to these fundamental questions will shape our understanding of revival–and therefore, our behavior. We answer, “Revival is getting right with God and saving sinners.” Revival is a new beginning of obedience to God. When...

Christ in You

What is conversion? One of the most beautiful and profound answers to this question is, “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). In this stimulating discussion, Pastor Ray and Alexandra unfold the glorious truth that Jesus lives inside of a converted person. The apostle John introduces this idea in his gospel: “as many...

Revival Prayer Meeting

Revival Prayer Meeting

This live revival prayer meeting begins with the story of the rich young ruler. This young man encapsulates the American church. Because of a selfish heart, he sorrowfully went away from Jesus. But what did Jesus say about this man, when his disciples asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus said, With men this is...

Agony for the Lost

Agony for the Lost

Agony for the lost is indispensable to revival. But, this agony is almost non-existent in America. So how do Christians reclaim this lost agony for souls? We begin by recognizing that conversion is not gradual. Conversion is instantaneous. When a sinner repents, surrenders all to Jesus, and receives Christ, the Holy Spirit then lives inside...
