August 19, 1957-May 30, 2016
Tony Mac was called home to the presence of our Lord and Savior on Memorial Day, 2016, from a sudden heart attack. Tony’s work was finished on Earth and it was time for him to rejoice in the home God prepared for him.
The gap left behind in Free in Christ Ministries is being filled with the many able men and women who have already been serving in the ministry. With Tony’s beloved wife Candy as its leader, FIC will continue the work which the two of them started. She will visit prisons, speak where she is led, and touch lives with her own unique ministry.
If you have a need or would like to contact Candy, you are encouraged to send her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

If you ever heard
Tony preach you heard this verse quoted, this was Tony's verse and he used it
on a daily basis. There wasn't a day went by that Tony wasn't witnessing
to someone. Tony was an awesome man of God and an awesome friend. Tony
will be missed by everyone who ever met him. Tony had one of the most
powerful testimonies and witness, he was an awesome presence in any room he
ever walked in. It didn't matter if it was in the Oklahoma prison
or the Oklahoma Senate meetings, which he was a guest chaplain many times
or if it was in a local restaurant where he might just stop in. Tony never
left a room without everyone knowing that he was a sold out believer in
the Lord Jesus Christ. Tony's testimony will continue to reach thousands of
people all across America as long as each one of us continue to pass the
CD's on to our family, friends, and neighbors. We have an important part
to play in reaching America with the Gospel. Our CD conference is a three
Fold Cord Conference and it's all about tying ministries together to reach more
people. The bible says one can put a thousand to flight but two can put
ten thousand to flight. It doesn't double each time we work together it
quantum leaps, we get ten times stronger each time we work together.
I know many of you that
are reading this wish you could have been at the conference this year and may
be wishing there was something you could do to help Free In Christ, Rig
Ministries, Channel 21 Ministries, Faith on the Move Ministries, J and A
Ministries and the many, many, many other Ministries that are tied
together through this CD ministry. The Ministries are too numerous to
mention. Together we are making a difference all across America. There is
not a day that goes by that we don't hear from someone who has listened to one
of our CD's and they call in to ask for prayer. There is not a week that goes
by that we don't get several calls form people that have given their life's to
Christ after listening to one of the testimony CD's from Rig Ministries.
So we just want to say thank you to each and every one of you who have
supported this ministry with your tithes and love offerings.
We have put together
8 CD's that cover the whole CD ministry conference and a very
special tribute DVD of Tony Mac that we played at this year's CD ministry
conference and we want to send them to all of our supporters as a very special
appreciation gift to you for your help in the ministry. So when you
send your monthly support check it will be mailed out to you as our
appreciation for your help in getting the gospel out into the highways and
hedges. (Luke 14:23) If you don't receive this very special package
please contact us and let us know. We want you to experience this year’s
conference and we want you to continue being a part of a ministry that is
impacting the whole world. We have heard from every state in America,
and over 30 countries around the world that has gotten one of our CDs
from many of you who are passing them on to others. So thank you very
much for all your help and support. and remember this; Jesus loves you and we
do too, and this is Chaplain Gary Rayburn and we will talk at you later...

Blessed & Highly Favored
Chaplain Gary Rayburn
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
When we read this verse it starts out as bad news but if we continue to read we reach the "Good News." Jesus say’s He has come that we might have life, but not only that but we might have life more abundantly! That’s “Good News.” Many people live their lives always looking at the bad news, but if we turn that bad news coin over we will find the "Good News." Which side of the coin are you looking at? If you live your life with a defeated attitude you will live a defeated life. But if you live your life expecting to receive good things from God you will receive all the blessings that God wants to give you. I know this is hard for some people to imagine, but you must come to the realization that God is so much bigger than anything you will ever face. We are children of the most high God, we are blessed and highly favored, we have royalty in our DNA we are children of the King. So why would you not live your life expecting Him to give you victory? God intends for you to be a champion, not a defeated person. If you claim victory and expect victory, you will get it along with a greater sense of power and peace! God wants you to live abundantly, so learn to expect His abundance.
Every time Satan throws a stumbling block at you just ask the Lord to turn it into a stepping stone. God wants to raise us up higher than we ever thought possible and He will use every stumbling block that is thrown at us as stepping stones, if we stay in faith and allow Him to work in our life.
No matter what has been taken away from you, no matter what you’ve lost or experienced in the past, if you give it over to God, He will return to you more than you could ask or imagine. He’ll make things right and give you more than what was lost or stolen. God wants to multiply your joy, peace, wisdom, health, finances. I'm praying for a double portion of His favor in every area of your life! The first step in moving forward into this fresh future is forgetting the disappointments of yesterday. It’s time shake it off, to turn loose those disappointments of your past and reach out in faith to God’s abundant future. No matter how painful the blows or distressing the situation may seem if we shake it off and put it under our feet we can use the adversities of life to raise us up to new levels. What seems like is going to bury us many times God uses to bless us. Stay positive and remember Romans 16:20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Take the 30 day challenge, and for the next 30 days wake up in the morning saying “I am blessed and highly favored” and every time someone ask you how you’re doing? Just say, “I’m Blessed and Highly Favored” no matter what kind of day you’ re having. You will find out that you truly are Blessed & Highly Favored!
Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.
There is nothing the devil fears more than Christians who are united. This means that his number one tactic is to bring disunity in the Church. If he can succeed, then the Church is crippled. When we work together things just seem to go smoother. Rig Ministries has teamed up with lots of other ministries across the country working together. We work close together with Channel 21 Ministries, J & A Ministries, Faith on the Move Ministries, Free In Christ Ministries and many other ministries.
Jesus spoke about the power of agreement in Matthew 18:19: "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." Don't put any limitation on this Scripture. Jesus says what He means. We can receive anything if we agree about it in prayer.
The Bible says that one can put a thousand to flight, but two could put ten thousand to flight. If we work together in unity we can reach our area for Christ. We can make a difference in someone*s life today. Psalms 133:1 says Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Working together we can be that net that stretches across America bringing in a harvest for the Lord! James chapter 5 verse 19 & 20 says: Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. And that brings me back to the verse in Philippians, Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account. Everyone that sows tithes and offerings into this ministry we thank you! You are what keeps this ministry going and not only that the fruit of this ministry is going into your account in Heaven According to Philippians 4:18 it is a sweet smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. The Unity that you find here at Rig Ministries at our 3 fold Cord Cd Ministry conference is something very special and I know it is that sweet smelling aroma to God.
Through this Unity of working together God has opened many doors for us here at Rig Ministries. We have been on Sirrus/XM radio for about a year now with "The Tim Ridley Show" on Channel 146 doing a program called Jump Start Your week with Chaplain Gary Rayburn. It now has a new time, 5:25 each Monday morning I will be jump starting your week with some positive thoughts to help guide you through your week. Last year James Payne was at our cd ministry conference and he has agreed to join us again this year. God has placed him here at Rig Ministries to work along side us with some great messages & some of his great music like this month's cd. "Seeing the Invisible and doing the Impossible." I know you will be blessed by the message and songs on this cd and want to share it with family, friends, and neighbors. God has opened a new door for James Payne he is hosting a new TV program on TCT starting soon called "Nashville Alive" and James had us down to Nashville in April to tape an interview that will be airing on TCT soon. Check your local TV guide to find out when this new program will be airing in your area. What an AWESOME God we serve. We want to encourage you to try and make it to Rig Ministries for our 3 Fold Cord cd Ministry conference June 24,25,26 it will be an awesome time here in Carmi. with Bob & Stephanie Wilson, Gary & Linda Rayburn, Tony & Candy Mac, Terry & Betty Hopkins, Jim and Ann Davenport, Richard Coss, Joe Arview, Bill Schell, Sherman Taylor, Melaine Walker, Darrell Spicer, Gaylon Taylor, and on Saturday night James Payne will be bringing a special guest with him to Rig Ministries.

Receiving In God is an evangelistic outreach. Our mission is to strengthen the Christian believer, reach out to the ones who are out of church for whatever reason, and to reach the lost, broken hearted, the depressed and confused souls in this area and all over the world. We plan to do this two fold. One way is with our upper room daily prayer & devotion service which runs M-F at 12:30. Everyone is welcome at the upper room please come and join us if you can. In 2014 we began a Thursday night service @ 7 Pm and a Sunday Night service @ 6 PM.
And the second way is through our cd ministry where we are reaching out all across America and now we are starting to reach out to different countries around the world. April of 2013 we went over the 1 million mark of free cd's given away. We send out free cd’s all over the country and in to all the World. So we invite you to write to us, e-mail us or give us a call we would love to send you a free cd’s for you to listen to and share with your family, friends, & neighbors.
