Like Eagles Staked to the Ground

Christians in America are like eagles staked to the ground. They’re called to soar: to take on the mission of winning the nation for Christ. However, many lack this loving concern for others’ souls. They’re instead preoccupied with their own lives. Except for those close to them, they’re indifferent to the needs of others. This...

Vignettes on the Holy Spirit Baptism

Several dense, juicy vignettes illustrate life after receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit. These vignettes help us see how conversion isn’t enough. In the new birth alone, we fall far short of the full depth of Christian experience and usefulness. Secondly, they help us understand what we’re praying for. These vignettes are taken from...

Teach Us to Pray

When the disciples asked, “Lord, teach us to pray,” Jesus shared not only how to pray, but what to pray for. First, we’re to pray on behalf of others: the church, the lost, the persecuted, and individuals. Second, we’re to pray for the Holy Spirit as an indwelling Person who brings Pentecost, revival power. This...

The Price of Revival in Africa

Through the ministry of Mr. and Mrs. Rees Howells, God saved 10,000 Africans in five countries. But this revival came at a price. Before God sent them to Africa, the Howells’ had to give up their only son, Samuel. Relatives raised Samuel in a loving, godly family. Eventually, he took over his father’s role as...

The Elephant in the Church

What happens when you read the New Testament and compare it to modern American Christianity? The New Testament Church preached, healed, raised the dead, met daily, and walked in holiness. The church loved and feared God too much to sin against him. On the other hand, the modern American church meets on Sunday, leaves the...

The Raw Ugliness of Sin (2012)

What happens when Christians try to skip over dealing with their sin, and go straight to holiness? Put another way, what happens when you try to skip conversion and go straight to power, or to sanctification? You end up with the crippled, disempowered, and disgraced church that we see everywhere in America. Abuse, destruction, and...

National Day of Repentance

Today is the National Day of Prayer. But will God hear our prayers? The Bible teaches that God hears the prayers of the righteous. But, the prayers of the wicked are an abomination to him. More than a National Day of Prayer, America needs a National Day of Repentance. The story of Eli is a...

April 2018 Offertory

Korean Christians in the Pyongyang revival eagerly stripped off their jewelry and watches to build a debt-free church facility. Another man, eager to pay off $50 of church debt, sold his mule and plowed by hand with his son. Why did these Christians behave this way? Because their heavenly mindset saw the intense value of...

The Gospel vs. Christian Gnosticism

Gnosticism originated before the time of Jesus. After the birth of the church, Gnosticism made quick inroads into the church in both teaching and practice. Today, many of these Gnostic infiltrations still exist in the church. However, they aren’t recognized as Gnostic. So what is the true gospel, and what is Gnostic heresy? Pastor Ray...
