The Journey of Consecration (2004)

If you choose to consecrate yourself to God, you should expect two things. First, you should expect explosive life and joy and in the Lord. Second, you should resign yourself to follow God regardless of what you suffer. Obedience is key. The Old Testament is full of examples of people who said, “I will do...

A City Called Darkness

One name for the “Walled City” in Hong Kong was Hak Nam, meaning, “Darkness.” Neither China nor England exercised legal jurisdiction over the city. Child prostitutes, heroin and opium addicts, and gangsters lived among buildings so crowded together that the sun could not get through. They had no electricity, no sanitation, and no running water....

August 2018 Offertory with Prayer

This message blends our usual offertory with prayer for our listeners. We pray for several who wrote to us, and then take a call from a backslidden man in need of physical healing. Bless God, by the end of the hour, $1,100 is pledged! Now we're just $470 short of our almost $4,000 goal. Will...

Do NOT Lose Heart!

In this very powerful 2004 sermon, Pastor Ray compares the Christian's walk to that of Daniel. Daniel chose not to sully his God by trying to become assimilated with the Babylonians, after their imprisonment. We must do the opposite, which is to come out of the modern Babylon of this age. Most of us have...

I Choose to Serve Jesus (2008)

God's judgment comes upon those who rebel against Him. These judgments are almost identical in the Old and New Testaments. One example is a lack of spiritual discernment. A second is lust that results in broken marriages. The only way to escape God's judgment is to repent. And not just saying, “I repent.” But, as...

Trust in Jesus (2004)

The natural man or woman works to earn food and clothing, and considers these things their own. But, Jesus directed the children of God's kingdom to live differently. Instead of going to a job to earn money, Christians go to their jobs to witness for Jesus. Because they trust God to clothe and feed them,...

An Enduring Kingdom (2004)

Jesus Christ will establish his eternal, enduring kingdom. But why, after 2,000 years, has this still not come to pass? We find the answer in the story of King Saul and the incumbent King David. King Saul sought to establish and preserve his own rule and kingdom. He threatened and tried to murder David, who...
