Charles Finney’s Holy Spirit Baptism

Within 24 hours of his conversion, Charles Finney received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Described as “waves” of “liquid love,” this baptism utterly annihilated the desire to do anything but preach the gospel. Moreover, it gave Finney the power to do so with success. Nearly every individual Finney spoke to–even just a few words–would...

China Church Special Report

An urgent special report from China details the increase in persecution over the past 18 months. Persecution against the church in China in the past 18 months is as bad or worse than the persecution under Mao in the 1960s and 1970s. All indications show that this will be a long, sustained persecution–not just a...

Determined to Be Saved

Every person who has ever been saved was determined to be saved. For example, Charles Finney determined that he would not leave his place of prayer in the woods until he’d settled his soul’s salvation–or died trying. As a result, God exposed the young man’s sin to him in such a way that his heart...

Specific Prayer

Specific Prayer

Answers to prayer require a specific prayer. For example, when Jesus asked Bartimaeus what he wanted, the blind man answered, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.” By contrast, Christians often pray vague things like, “Give me more of Jesus.” Or, “Let me have a deeper work of grace.” But what is “more”? What is...

February 2018 Offertory

Instead of our usual music-style of offertory, we invited listeners to call and pray. Pastor Ray and Alexandra also prayed on the air. To our great delight, three women called and pledged a total of $1,325. Now we are only $75 short of our goal to cover Pilgrim’s Progress for February 2018! Would you like...

The Highway of Holiness

The Highway of Holiness

William Godbey describes God’s highway of holiness as a path with an “interior” and “exterior” way. The interior way runs down the center, flanked on either side by the exterior. Regenerated, but not sanctified, Christians walk on the two flanks. They are liable to fall at any attack of the devil, and then enter condemnation...

Holiness or Hell

Holiness or Hell

Does a person have to keep sinning until death? A fierce battle over this question has raged for hundreds of years. One preacher, William Godbey, took the strong position, “Holiness or hell.” This dear brother lifts up Jesus as a complete, all-powerful, “NOW,” Savior. He is able and willing to save his people completely and...

The Kentucky Revival

The Kentucky Revival

In 1800, deism and Calvinism had infiltrated the Kentucky churches. They were powerless, dead, and filled with sin. In answer to prayer, God sent tremendous convicting, slaying, saving, and sanctifying power. The Kentucky revival lasted about a year. Most notably, in the 20,000+ person Cane Ridge revival meeting, at least 3,000 people literally fell under...

That You May Believe

After Lazarus died, Jesus said that he was glad he hadn’t been there. Why? So that the disciples might believe. But what were they to believe? And what are we to believe, in order to be saved? Picking up on this introduction by Pastor Ray, Alexandra goes on to show that we are to believe...
