Choose to Be an Overcomer!

In his message to the church at Laodicea, Jesus promises those who buy gold, white robes, and eye salve from him: “All those whom I may love, I convict and instruct. So you must be zealous and you must repent…the one overcoming, I will give to him to sit with Me on My throne” (Revelation...

The Every Creature Vision

On December 26, 1934, the Holy Spirit revealed the Every Creature Vision to Rees Howells. Just as the Savior came to make atonement for the whole world, so would the Holy Spirit live in the bodies of 10,000 people who would be channels to bring the gospel of holiness to every person on earth. This...

The Gift of Shame (2 Samuel 11)

King David saw the love of God and yet believed that he could get away with adultery and murder. The resounding effects of his sin continued for years until God finally worked it through David’s soul: “Should I win the favor of Yahweh, He will bring me back…but should He say, I take no pleasure...

The Place of Crushing–A Call to Holiness

It is early evening in Judea. Just outside Jerusalem, Peter, James and John are walking with Jesus to the olive grove, to the place of crushing: Gethsemane. Jesus begins to stumble. He is in obvious pain and turmoil. Jesus is staggering because He is so troubled in His spirit. His heart is breaking. He is...

Stolen Goods?

A deep consideration of how you have stolen yourself from God will produce great pain. We must see this before we can truly offer a full confession to God and make restitution to people whom we’ve injured. When you see that everything that you own, and are, belongs to God; and that you’ve stolen it...

Rise Up, and Walk! (January 2017)

When Jesus healed the paralytic and said, “Rise up, and walk!” he was literally saying, “Awaken!” This call to come to consciousness, which is revival, is on all of God’s people. It is your responsibility and duty to put off deceptions, lay down the weapons of the devil, and fully consecrate yourself to Jesus Christ....

What You Must NOT Do (to Walk in Salvation)

Pastor Ray defines six things that we must NOT do if we want to walk in salvation. Does the sweet love of Jesus flow between his heart and yours?  Are you angry with Jesus, the one who died and suffered for you? Or, are you angry at another, for whatever reason? Jesus came and died to destroy...

Trust Jesus, and Deal to the Bottom!

Normally, we integrate the welcome in with the sermon and provide one file, but we had some recording issues this Sunday. We praise Jesus that he restored the welcome from Psalm 145! Although it’s not a pristine recording, we pray that it will be a blessing to you. Correction January 9: It actually turned out incredibly...

The Date of Your Execution

Jesus said, “Do not begin to think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I came not to abolish but to fulfill.” Weaving in Charles Finney’s allegory about parents pleading for the pardon of their condemned son, Pastor Ray shows that the new covenant does not abolish the requirements of the moral...

Do Not Force God to Leave You (November 2016)

The Spirit of God confronts us with the holiness of God and our own, particular sins. If we persistently reject the Spirit of God with excuses, grumbling, or rebellion; or by insisting, “I sin every day, and God is just going to have to accept me how I am,” the Holy Spirit will leave us....
