Inner healing / deliverance ministry that teaches, trains, and equips the body of Christ to walk in freedom and intimacy with Jesus.
This ministry is called mining the truth because we will use the tools that God has given us to dig out the truth as He reveals it. We believe there are nuggets of Biblical treasure just below the surface waiting to enrich us. Isaiah 45:3 "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden wealth of secret places, So that you may know that it is I, The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name."
Mission: We believe that God has given each believer in Jesus the ability to learn and discern truth through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is our heart’s desire to inspire followers of Jesus Christ to embrace a life long journey of uncovering and applying God’s truth through the power of the Holy Spirit by Bible study, prayer and faithfully engaging life.
Ray Sturdivant is a spiritual father to the community that I lead and pastor. He has prayed with hundreds of people resulting in true and lasting freedom. Beating The Devil With His Own Stick uncovers eight patterns common to all of us hindering us from experiencing the freedom Jesus has provided for us as His children. Ray’s revelation is convicting, practical and deeply needed in our hour. Ray has mined the heart of both God and His people to uncover patterns impacting us from living in freedom and fullness of God’s grace. This book will be a resource for the church in the days ahead. Thank you Ray and thank you Jesus.

miningthetruth.com I then heard the Lord say to me, "I am raising up Reluctant Jonahs to go to the Nineveh nations that are going to repent.
What an amazing weekend at our training seminar. God showed up, freedom showed up, gold dust showed up, and only a few were left standing after our impartation time.
"God aims every one of His love missiles at the heart aligned with heaven, and abundant life flows as a result. When that happens, prophetic words put on skin and bones and run the race without encumbrance that He sang over us in the womb. When our heart aligns with the song of heaven, all the resources of heaven are sent to silence the agents of hell before they can silence the song we were created sing."

Anna helps my wife Chrysty clean the house about once a month. Before Chrysty left for work one morning, she said that Anna was coming to clean. She also said Anna’s back is hurting and so messed up that it is getting to the point that she may have to stop working. She told me that I might get a chance to pray with her that day. I was working at home and Anna showed up a few hours later but I forgot about what Chrysty said until I was leaving to run some errands.
I saw that Anna was in our bedroom vacuuming and I remembered to ask her about her back and she confirmed what Chrysty had said that morning. I asked if I could pray for her back to be healed and she said yes. As I prayed she felt intense heat flow through her back and she started to weep almost uncontrollably. All the pain left her back and she got completely healed and is still healed over 2 months later.
After I prayed for her I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, look down. When I did, I recognized that the vacuum cleaner cord, which was laying where she was standing, was making the sign of a thumbs up. I was stunned with God’s sense of humor with this sign and wonder of His victory and approval of healing Anna’s back. I had Anna pose with her thumbs up as I took a second picture. Jesus is amazing!
In January of 2018 my husband and I felt God was leading our family in a different direction than that of the church we were attending. I had been involved in that denomination for all of my 33 year old life. To leave that religion is greatly frowned upon and the rejection we received was very painful. The hardest part for me was that my sister/best friend no longer wanted to be a part of my life. She would not allow me to see her 5 month old son, who I loved like my own, any longer. The pain was extremely deep and I cried a lot. It somehow felt like a death.
I decided to get off of social media, and didn’t do much other than what was necessary as a wife/mom. I decided to spend any extra time I had sitting in my closet to read my bible and pray. I only wanted to hear what Jesus had to say about my life. I wanted to know who He was and who He said I was. I didn’t even know what I believed anymore. This went on until April, 2018. During this time I felt like I was in a deep dark hole of despair.
Through a friend our family was introduced to Ray Sturdivant. My husband scheduled a call for me to receive ministry over the phone with Ray since we lived in another state. This happened in April. I cannot believe the change that took place in 2 hours! As Ray walked me through forgiving others, I was freed from so much anger, bitterness, pain, and other things that were keeping me bound up in misery. I began to see what Jesus was giving me in exchange for forgiving those that had hurt me so bad. I finally felt free and it was amazing! It's hard to sum up what all has happened in my life since then, but I know that I was delivered and that Jesus healed my heart!! I am so grateful!
Mining the Truth
I did a session with Mining the Truth, and I encountered the presence of God that in return brought freedom to my life. In the process of the meeting there was a "core lie" over my life that was brought to the surface, and still a year later I am able to recognize the strategy of the devil to try and bring up this core lie. I know how to handle the "wiles of the devil" with Truth against this lie.
At the end of the session, I had an encounter with Holy Spirit flooding my body like a river which represented to me a fresh cleansing and baptism with Holy Spirit. I have done one other session, that actually broke some sort of "lustful"/ "sexual" Spirit off of my life. For years I have been walking in sexual purity but have been extensively bombarded with a ton of sexual thoughts that I had no desire to entertain.
I thought it was normal for years and would cast the thoughts down and not agree, but the thoughts seemed to be abnormal and aggressive. The more I talked to friends of mine about the thoughts I realized they were not normal for them. So, I did this second session with Mining the Truth, and I am realizing 3 months later that a 30-minute session over the phone with Ray a few months ago really did break some sort of spirit that was attacking my mind. Yes, temptation still comes but the temptation and thoughts do not come as they used too. I don't fully understand it all, but I do know that those spirits no longer feel like that have as much freedom to attack my mind. Thank you, Jesus, for new levels of freedom!
When Ray and I had our phone conversation I actually got free from sexual perversion, soul ties, lust, unworthiness, word curses, and generational curses in my family line. I could actually feel when we were on the phone this stuff leaving my body. I had been pressing into God and trying to be the very best person I could be but it wasn’t working. It is like walking with my feet in concrete. I would get up early every day and read my bible and pray for years but all of this stuff kept me from being able to hear the Father’s voice or feel His love for me. I am here to tell everyone there is HOPE and FREEDOM. If He can do it for me, He can do it for you too!!! Thank you Ray for being available and doing exactly what God has called you to do!
I am so looking forward to my second trip to Southern California and minister along side Sarah Bryant!

During my life, I have experienced wonderful blessings from the Lord; however, I also experienced many, many scenarios where I was able to start the process of stepping into the promises from the Lord, but seemed to consistently never get any further. Kind of like being invited into the room of favor, but never asked to stay. After hearing about this wonderful ministry, I spent two (2) sessions with their team via phone, and it was like night/day in terms of changes in my life. My heart to worship increased, passion to read the scriptures, love for my family, it all increased. My family/friends started routinely saying, "who are you...what happened that you're so different" It was a GREAT experience. Consequently, my consulting business landed it's largest job ever, and major increased finances started pouring our household from every direction. There is SO MUCH more to share, but not enough time. If you ever wanted to risk it all for God...spend a few hours with this ministry and The Spirit of God will use them to touch your life in drastic ways. Come as you are...leave how you ALWAYS wanted to be.

If you ask most people what the great commission is, most likely they will say "make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father. Son and Holy Spirit."
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
But if you read the above passage where the great commission comes from, you have to stop reading right in the middle of Jesus’ statement in order to reach the conclusion that it is only about making disciples and baptizing them. Jesus continues His command with more than that, which is why the translators placed a coma and not a period after Holy Spirit found in Matthew 28:18-19.
In other words when Jesus says "baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit," we find a comma after Holy Spirit. This means Jesus is not finished giving His great commission. The complete statement of the great commission continues with verse 20 with Jesus also saying "teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."
So to know what Jesus was saying in the great commission, we have to know what Jesus commanded them to do. So what else did Jesus command the disciples to do? We find an answer in Matthew 10.
Matthew 10:1 Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness…
8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
Cutting Jesus’ commission off in mid sentence is rude at best and is at the very least, misleading. In fact, if we carried out the true great commission, the one that doesn’t stop half way through Jesus' statement, we would actually see the kind of results Jesus was looking for. There would be many more opportunities to baptize disciples from all nations.
The reason is that demonstrating the power of God through healing and deliverance certainly leads those who witness it to an encounter with the risen Christ which frequently leads to faith. This will unquestionably lead to baptizing disciples from all nations in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Sprit. Doesn't that seem like what Jesus originally had in mind?
miningthetruth.com Our passion is to lead others into spiritual freedom which allows them to experience whole-hearted living, fully surrendered to Jesus and activated in the gifts of Holy Spirit.
In the spiritual realm, whatever you come into agreement with you give it power and authority over you.
In your thought life, come into agreement with the truth and you will experience freedom. Come into agreement with lies and you will experience bondage.
The degree to which you're thoughts are partnering with truth you are experiencing spiritual freedom. The degree to which you're thoughts are partnering with lies you are experiencing spiritual bondage.
Lies are the thought highways traveled by the demonic realm.
Truth are the thought highways traveled by the Holy Spirit.
A thought in and of itself determines neither freedom nor bondage, its what you do with the thought that determines freedom or bondage. Do you embrace truth or linger on lies?
John 8:31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
Romans 6:16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?
After years of reading self-help books, participating in counseling and healing care ministries, I thought I had all the healing I would ever have. I tried to correct certain issues in my life in my own strength and even surrendered them to Christ, but I still struggled. I thought I would always battle certain issues because my grandparents, parents and siblings battled the same issues.
A friend at Revive told me that I could be free of these generational issues that I have been struggling with all my life. I went into the prayer session ready to be healed and exposed everything in my past. I wanted ALL the freedom the Lord had for me.
After the first prayer session I felt liberated, lighter and rarely struggled with those issues. But I sensed the Lord wanted to take me deeper. As Cherry facilitated prayer, the open-ended questions allowed the Lord to take me gently and lovingly to a place that needed forgiveness. It allowed him to restore my heart back to its intended fulness with appropriate levels of trust and protection. John 8:32 says, “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” Knowing the truth and breaking the lies that I believed truly set me free! With more freedom, there is more joy and peace. The Lord gives abundantly and there’s always more!
In addition to all the knowledge, wisdom and understanding that I’ve learned in my sessions with Cherry and Ray, the real treasure is a greater depth in the intimacy that I have with the Lord. Now I can apply these questions regularly in my alone time with Jesus and know him more fully as I walk with him daily. I’ve learned to walk more confidently in my identity and stand more firmly in my authority in Christ. This in turn multiplies out to others. I can encourage and give others hope for freedom from their strongholds, fears and the lies they believe, no matter how many generations back it goes.
This is an amazing ministry and I am so thankful the Lord led me to these beautiful people with the authentic gift of facilitating healing and deliverance. “So if the Son sets you free, then you will be free indeed.” ~John 8 :36 AND OH! How sweet it is!
“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,”
This ministry is called mining the truth because we help others step into true spiritual freedom by encountering the One who is truth. These encounters that go deep into the vein of truth found only in Jesus, reveal the gold implanted in each person’s heart by Him. Hearts align with Jesus in that place and revelation of the truth of who He is re-calibrates how each person sees themselves while standing in His light. Real lasting freedom, destiny, and intimacy with God are the results. Isaiah 45:3 "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden wealth of secret places, So that you may know that it is I, The LORD, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name."
