The Gospel of the Kingdom of God

What is the gospel of the kingdom of God? It begins with the divine authority of Jesus ruling over all things. Jesus is the conqueror of mens’ hearts and of culture to drive out rebellion, destroy the power and works of the devil, and restore God’s creation to obedience to God, health and total restoration....

Absolute Surrender!

God knew that Abraham was sold out to Him when Abraham didn’t withhold his son Isaac. Today, God tests us to see if we’re withholding anything from Him. God isn’t stingy–He will provide. He wants to give us His son! But, if we hold onto our life, we will be robbed of the power to live...

Two Paths Clearly Marked (2008)

Unlike forest trails, which are quickly overgrown, the path of light and the path of darkness have many clear markings. The first is identified by an active faith, bold confession, and absolute, sold-out dependence on Jesus; the second, by a divided heart, hiding one’s sin, and self-reliance. In spite of these clear markings, we may...

The Testimony of Righteousness

In this vulnerable testimony, Pastor Ray shares his experience of entire sanctification. Entire sanctification is not some mystical experience: it is simply a covenant confirmed with Jesus that, “I disown my life, and I will receive from Jesus only what he chooses to give me.” As we deny ourselves the right to provide for ourselves,...

Giving to Jesus: A Christmas Message

As we head into Christmas, it is good to be on guard against the temptation to worldliness and materialism. Let’s consider how the wise men, King Herod, and the Sanhedrin responded to God giving his Son to a lost and dying world. The wise men recognized that Jesus was God’s gift to the world, including...

Unspotted by the World (Encore)

The story of Rees Howells shows the necessity of entire sanctification after the new birth. In order for Jesus to live in our bodies, as he intends to do, we must give him complete control of our lives. Revival in America hinges on individuals who will make this total consecration to Jesus.  Beloved, will you...

God’s Redemptive Plan for the Church!

The bride of Christ, the church, will overcome and be forever holy and wedded to Jesus! God has set His heart on the church and put her on display to the entire universe. This is the big picture of salvation. Will you choose to be part of that holy wife of God?

God’s Purpose in Our Suffering

Is being a Christian hard? This is true only if you’re trying in your own strength and power to be a  Christian. The good news is that real righteousness, just like salvation, is a free gift from Jesus. The gospel doesn’t require you to white knuckle the monsters in your life. Power and victory come...

The Gates of Righteousness! (Psalm 118)

Repentance and righteousness are not God’s end for the Christian. Instead, they are stepping stones to intimacy and fellowship with Jesus. This intimacy comes at a high price: suffering, discipline, and consciously and deliberately giving up control of your life to Jesus. He will deal with the monsters in your life if you simply trust Him and...

O God, Awaken My Heart!

Jesus’ heart overflows with grief when he has to send sinners to hell. Will you compel Him to do so based on the choices you’re making? You may intellectually know the gospel, but choose things that “unsave” you, and will subsequently ruin your soul for eternity. Will you join John Bunyan’s Christian and run to...
