Begone Unbelief!

Do you believe that you can never stop sinning? If so, you’re in unbelief about the most basic element of the gospel: Jesus saves us from sinning. In order for God to transfer us to his kingdom of light, he first has to make us holy. Becoming holy–which is conversion–is a choice. It is dying...

What Is Revival?

What is revival, and why is it important? What makes revival happen? Is God calling for revival right now?

Christ in You

What is conversion? One of the most beautiful and profound answers to this question is, “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). In this stimulating discussion, Pastor Ray and Alexandra unfold the glorious truth that Jesus lives inside of a converted person. The apostle John introduces this idea in his gospel: “as many...

Agony for the Lost

Agony for the lost is indispensable to revival. But, this agony is almost non-existent in America. So how do Christians reclaim this lost agony for souls? We begin by recognizing that conversion is not gradual. Conversion is instantaneous. When a sinner repents, surrenders all to Jesus, and receives Christ, the Holy Spirit then lives inside...

Dying Without the Holy Spirit

The American church is dying without the Holy Spirit. In Europe, old church members are dying off faster than new converts join. Only a small percentage of professing Christians attend church weekly. As a result, churches are sold and turned into mosques. Atheism rules. What’s happened in the European church is a preview to what...

Lay Down Your Weapons of Rebellion Now

Our sins are weapons of rebellion against God. All of our sin comes out of an evil heart. So, God commands us to get a new heart. How do we do this? Simply, God calls for every sinner to immediately lay down their weapons of rebellion and find mercy in Jesus Christ. Regardless of your...

Count Yourself Dead to Sin

Do you have to sin every day until you die? The Scripture says, No. “Count yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11). A truly converted Christian is as dead to sin as a dead body is to the world. Christ totally destroys the “old man”–or sinful nature–in a converted...

How Can the Lost Be Saved?

How can the lost be saved? The church growth movement, friendship evangelism, and relational theology offer many approaches. But, the fact is, the gospel as we preach it in America is not converting anyone. On the contrary, what the church believes and teaches is preventing people from being converted and saved. So how can the...

God Hates Sin

We’ve all heard that God loves us–and this is true. But, it’s equally true that God hates sin. Without these two halves, the gospel becomes powerless. God will judge you and send you to heaven or hell based on your works–what you do. Jesus said, Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in...
