Video of the Week, Do Not Despise the Word of the Lord

In this very instructive and methodical video, Pastor Ray unfolds Psalm 51. The sin in King David’s heart that led to murder and adultery is that he despised the word of the Lord. We have a great need for entire sanctification, yet most are totally unaware of their great need. Listen to the word with...

Experiencing the Holy Spirit

Have you wondered, “What does entire sanctification look like?” Pastor Ray finishes this week’s doctrinal teachings on this subject with a reading from Charles Finney’s “Conversion to Christ,” found in the memoir Holy Spirit Revivals. In the same day, this dear brother was first born again, then baptized in the Holy Spirit of liquid love and...

Do Not Despise the Word of the Lord

This fiery, impassioned close reading of Psalm 51 throws light on King David’s cry for entire sanctification. He confronted the reality that his commission of adultery and murder rose out of a wicked, bent heart and spirit that had despised the word of the Lord. It wasn’t enough for David to simply have the sinful...

An End of Entertainment

Do these messages hook into your soul, lead you to repentance, and result in a change in your behavior? If not, entertainment may be the culprit that has turned your brain to mush and closed the narrow door of repentance promised to us in Genesis 3:15. Unlike recreation, which rebuilds the vital energies of soul...

Un-Sin Me!

Un-Sin Me!

King David’s prayer in Psalm 51 is that God would “un-sin” him. Though usually translated “wash” or “purge,” this literal meaning of “un-sin” reveals that David was crying out for entire sanctification, which is the total removal of the old man/carnal nature. We find this taught by the apostle Paul in Romans 6: our old...

Are You Washed in the Blood?

The question is not, “Are you saved,” but, “Are you washed in the blood of Jesus”? Just as surely as dirt is removed from washed hands, sin is presently and actually removed from a person washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. Of the specific acts of sin from which the apostle Paul indicates that...

The Second Work of Grace

In the first work of grace, a person is born again and saved from acts of sin. However, as in the Corinthian church, the inclination to sin remains. Jesus desires to sanctify entirely every believer so that this carnal nature is removed and the Christian is made perfect in love. This “high road,” as John Wesley called...

The Lie of the Sinning Christian

American and Western Christians today are the children of a modern age of heresy. We possess unprecedented education for pastors, previously unheard of resources for radio and television, and greater religious freedom than ever before–and yet billions around the world, more than at any other point in history, have never heard the name of Jesus....

The Greatest Need of the Church

The Church’s greatest need is to lay aside everything she thinks she knows, read the Scriptures, and believe what they say. This will break the power of the traditions of Calvin, Luther, and Roman Catholicism that have twisted the plain meaning of key salvation words–grace, atonement, saved, and sin–resulting in a Gnostic, antinomian gospel that...

The Surprising Antichrist

Did you know that the antichrist is already here? Just as the Jews missed the Christ because he wasn’t what they expected, many professing Christians miss the antichrist because it isn’t what they expect. The antichrist is not a man who will rise up for a few years at the end of time. The antichrist...
