Behind the Scenes of the Temptations

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....

Jacob’s Heart

In this very unique and eye-opening reading of Jacob’s life, Brother David unfolds Jacob’s heart to respond to the call of the Holy Spirit. Though immature, he committed himself to God in ways very precious to Jesus, and did not turn away in his heart when he went through suffering he could not understand. Just...

Belshazzar’s Feast

Belshazzar refused the light he had about the holy God of heaven and died partying. He was unable to read the writing on the wall, which was the judgment of God over his life. By contrast, Daniel took a strong stand for righteousness, refused the king’s gifts, and was exalted (and delivered) by God. With...

How Big Is Your Jesus?

Jesus, the creator of Heaven and Earth, is bigger than we can imagine–but how big He appears to you will depend on how close you are to Him. Many people who are called by Jesus are too large and are unwilling to submit to the pruning process that will reduce them. Millions upon millions around the world will...

Tearing the Heart of God

The American church today, and the church in most of the Western world as well, face a divorce with God. We’ve been unfaithful and cannot expect the loving presence of God until we’ve rebuilt trust with Him through repentance and obedience. God does not want to let us go—will you give up all expectations, and simply...

His Winnowing Fan (or Fork) Is in His Hand!

Have you submitted all to Jesus, only to quickly have your life thrown in the air? Don’t be discouraged! This is one of the ways of Jesus. He is separating the chaff from your life so that He can bring you into His barn! (Note: This is the welcome from Sister Michelle today. Because Pastor...

Absolute Surrender!

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...

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...

A Letter from God

A Letter from God

When Jesus looks at our works, he will see us as hot, cold, or lukewarm. If you’re uncertain about your actions, you need to submit them to Jesus! Being confident in Jesus is a choice–don’t settle for anything less than total confidence that you are led by the Holy Spirit at every moment, as you remain...

What Must I Do to Be Saved?

What Must I Do to Be Saved?

In this sobering message, Pastor Ray identifies that salvation consists in a state of mind that is supremely happy in (and resigned to) God’s will. To be saved, we must recognize that we’ve stolen ourselves from God, return to Him, and make restitution to all we’ve injured. Doubtful actions will block us from hearing the...
