No Longer Hostile to God (2005)

What does being hostile to God look like? Doing everything you can to fix life’s problems, using God to get what you want, complaining, playing the victim, or anything that blocks you from praying are manifestations of a mind hostile to God. In this state, instead of fearing God, one fears circumstances. But this unbelief...

Behind the Scenes of the Temptations (March 2017)

Sister Kathryn opens the welcome with two questions: Do you want to walk free of sin? and, Do you want Jesus to answer your prayers? Pastor Ray then plunges into an urgent call for an utter consecration to and reliance on Jesus Christ and our desperate need for the Pentecost power of the Holy Spirit....

Interview with Corey Stewart

In this hour-long interview with Corey Stewart, candidate for the governorship of Virginia, Pastor Ray digs into a number of moral and political questions. “What do you see as the role of the church in the community of Virginia?” “How do we reign in judges who make law instead of support law?” Corey directly addresses...

The Lie of Imputed Righteousness

The Lie of Imputed Righteousness

The lie of imputed righteousness has cast a delusion over the modern church. “When Jesus looks at you, he doesn’t see you, he sees himself,” has pushed out mental distress over sin. The majority of those who call themselves Christians will, to their surprise, be sent to hell unless there is a dramatic change by...

The Truth of Romans 7

The truth of Romans 7 cannot be found out of context. Romans 6, 7, and 8 clearly show that Christians do not sin. The true Christian has a clean conscience because Jesus has saved him from sinning. The venom of the serpent who said that if you sin, “You will not surely die,” has bitten...

Will You, or Will You Not, Follow Jesus?

At Evans’ Mills, Charles Finney confronted the congregation in this manner: “You admit that what I preach is the Gospel. You profess to believe it. Now, do you intend to receive it or reject it?” We are asking you this same question. You have listened to Pilgrim’s Progress day by day. You believe you are...

Breaking the Power of Jezebel (2004)

In the message to the church in Thyatira, the risen Lord rebukes the Jezebel spirit that seduced his church–not in a back country way, but with the high life. Today, this same spirit manifests in the American  church through at least eight lies, including “name it and claim it,” covenant theology, seed planting, eternal security,...

Breaking Out of the Straitjacket

Are you caught in a straitjacket of opinions about doctrine and practice that make you defective for the work of the gospel? This condition, described by Charles Finney in his memoir, Holy Spirit Revivals, can be diagnosed by casualness, lack of concern about holiness, or hardness of heart. The lack of Holy Spirit power in...

Returning to the Shepherd of Our Souls (2008)

There is no shortage of Divine power to walk holy before God as overcoming Christians. As revealed in the messages to the seven churches in Revelation, the only true block to overcoming is the pride of ownership–owning one’s life. To give up ownership is to submit in obedience to the voice of the Holy Spirit...

If We Confess Our Sins

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:8-9). These words combated the first-century Gnostic heresy that the soul could be...
