The Hidden Path, Made Plain (2008)

“Be of sin the double cure; save from wrath and make me pure.” This hymn reveals the glory of the new covenant. Though simple, this plain gospel is often obscured by confusion, excuses for sin, and false teaching. Simply, the ceremonial law of the Old Covenant could not make anyone perfect. But, the new covenant...

How to Consecrate Yourself to God

To receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, a Christian must first consecrate him or herself to Christ’s service. So what is consecration, and how do you consecrate yourself to God? In the New Testament, the English word “holiness” describes consecration. “Holiness” (hagios in the Greek) is distinct from “righteousness” (dikaois in the Greek). You...

Holy Ghost Power

Every thoughtful, spiritual Christian recognizes that something is missing from the church. We diligently do the work of God, yet we see few conversions, and even fewer that are sincere. Why is this? And what’s the solution? Simply, we have not waited on God for the promised Holy Ghost power. We’ve preached the truth and...

Do the Works Jesus Did

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these,” Jesus said. This statement proved true in the apostolic age, and it still proves true today. Following on yesterday’s broadcast, “The Gospel of the Holy Spirit,” Sister Alexandra expands...

The Gospel of the Holy Spirit

Did Jesus come only to forgive sins? According to the Gospel of Mark, Jesus’ main mission is, “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit (and with fire).” After Jesus is baptized in the Holy Spirit, the Gospel of Mark snapshots everything that flows out of this baptism. 1) Preaching, 2) Calling and making disciples,...

Enter Not into Temptation (2004)

Jesus’ temptation in the garden of Gethsemane pictures our own time of crushing in the prayer closet. While imminent separation from the Father crushed Jesus as he prayed, our need for union with the Father crushes us as we pray. The Christian life comes out of the prayer closet. In prayer, we receive revelation from...

Day 2, May 2018 Offertory

Praise the Lord! He answered our prayers to get us back on the air today. In this offertory, Sister Alexandra shares from Charles Finney’s sermon, “Love of the World,” and how it applies to our use of finances for God’s kingdom. Listeners responded! By your love and God’s grace, our Pilgrim’s Progress radio bill for...

The End of Self-Help (2012)

The apostle Paul indicates that to be chosen by God, you must be sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In other words, you must be holy in reality. But how is this to happen? Is it by “progressive sanctification,” or “entire sanctification”? Many in the church today are trying to “grow into” holiness, or to “gradually...

May 2018 Offertory

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters! We’re in the midst of our offertory week, and the enemy is raging. Due to technical difficulties at the radio station, we weren’t able to go on live today (Wednesday, May 30). And, we weren’t able to get a usable YouTube video for the first day of offertory. We pray...

No Longer Hostile to God (2005)

What does being hostile to God look like? First, and most commonly, it is living to survive. If I do everything I can to fix life’s problems, I show that I don’t love and trust God. Instead, I’m guilty of the same sin Adam and Even committed. It is fearing my circumstances instead of fearing...
