Ray Brubaker – Ray Brubaker Ministries
In 1947, Cathedral Caravan was born in the heart and mind of Ray Brubaker, who along with his wife Darlene, set on on the highways and byways of this nation with their new project. Even then, the technology they used to reach the masses was on the cutting edge.
For over 50 years, God’s News Behind the News has been broadcast over the radio airwaves, where thousands have received Christ as their savior and earned him the respected title: “Prophetic Statesman.”
He has been on the cutting edge of prophetic news and world events for more than 55 years. God’s News Behind the News will continue reaching out to the world through this avenue. There are still many areas of the world where Christian television is not available, illegal, or just has not reached yet. In those regions, radio is still the best, and sometimes the only way to reach people with the message of the gospel of Christ.
Today, the “new millennium” vision is to continually expand our outreach to multiplied millions through the effective media vehicles of television, radio, literature, conferences, and the internet.
Ray’s Personal Testimony
I was born on April 5, 1923, in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. I later accepted the Lord at the age of five. Brought up in a Christian home, I was not permitted to share in the social life of our community. My life centered around Sunday School, Church, Revival meetings and Bible conferences. How often I heard the story of one rotten apple making a bushel of good apples bad. So I was deprived of attending or participating in school activities such as plays, operettas, or even sports.
Following graduation, I had plans to enter a church-related school, but instead took a job in a war plant. This was during days of the Second World War. Often there were labor disputes and I felt the desire to mediate or offer a solution, so would report to the main plant. For these suggestions the management offered to pay my way through college if I would return as a labor-management consultant. That very week I had openly dedicated my life to the Lord under the ministry of Dr. William Pettingill and had been making plans to attend Moody Bible Institute. The firm then agreed to include seminary training if I would only accept their offer.
Grateful for this consideration I refused, however, and headed for the big city of Chicago. During my first term I received a questionnaire from Selective Service. Before opening the letter I fell on my knees and prayed, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” I felt the Lord had called me to the ministry and although there was a war in which we were involved, I was sure the Lord wanted me to stay in school. Moody Bible Institute wasn’t accepted by many of the draft boards across the country so I knew the Lord would have to work something of a miracle on my behalf. After prayer, I opened my Bible and my eyes fell on this verse– “Stand fast and see the salvation of the Lord. Ye shall not need to fight in this barrier’ How wonderfully the Lord made it possible to stay in school to study for the ministry.
Following graduation from Moody the job of news director was again available and I accepted it. We launched a series of news programs, one of which was GOD’S NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS.
Finally, remember that Christ may be your Saviour. But not until the Holy Spirit takes control of your life is Jesus really the Master of your life. For “no man can say that Jesus is Lord save by the Holy Ghost.” (1 Cor. 12:3)
And while we believe we can experience this infilling and know it, let us remember that no experience replaces a daily walk with the Lord. We need a fresh revelation from God daily, and need to commune with Him constantly. Then victory can be ours! For we read, “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” – (Gal. 5:16)
Christ’s coming hastens. Like wise virgins, let us awaken, rise and trim our lamps, and prepare for the coming Bridegroom by taking oil in our vessels with our lamps. With Christ dwelling within us, and the Spirit of God controlling us, we can be ready for our Lord’s soon coming.
Indeed, “Be ye ready also for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh!”
