Brother Ray Jones
Ray was born in 1951, the son of a dairy
farmer, in North East Pennsylvania.
He attended a local
school, and went on to Penn State University, where he graduated with a B.S. in
After college, Ray held a few factory
positions, then took a position as a salesman for Organs and Pianos, for
approximately 12 years and managed several stores in this field.
He later moved on to Pharmaceutical
Sales, where he spent 24 years in a career, advancing the treatment of the
health needs of mankind and advancing research in Medical Science, until his
retirement in 2011.
Ray’s parents were devout Roman
Catholics and introduced Ray to Catholicism at a young age, making him an Altar
Boy at the church they attended. Then, as he developed in
musical skills, he became the church organist, through his high school years.
Also, during this time, sadly, Ray developed a problem with alcohol, as
his father before him, and his great uncle before him. This
would progress worse, in Ray’s life, through college and into his early working
life leading to many tragic moments in his personal life as well as with the
Law; including 3 DUI’s in one year. Thankfully, Ray was
introduced to Alcoholics Anonymous, in 1974, and sobered up, without touching
another drink of alcohol or joint of Marijuana, to this day.
Thank God for Alcoholics Anonymous, and the men who founded it; Dr. Bob, and
In 1985, Ray received Jesus Christ, as
his personal Lord and Savior. He then began attending an
Assembly of God church, where he was asked to play the organ, and continues to
do so to this day. After receiving Jesus as his Savior,
Jesus delivered Ray from the spirit of addiction, and he has not needed to
attend AA meetings since. But, he will always have the
deepest love and respect for an organization that God used to save his life, and
sober him up, to be able to hear and receive the Good News of the Gospel of
In 1987, Ray married a wonderful woman,
that he met in church. Born again, and filled with the Holy
Spirit, she has been a delight to his life. Ray, also, has a
daughter and son-in-law, who live in Florida, with 4 beautiful sons. Both
daughter and son-in-law are born again, filled with the Holy Spirit, and serving
God at their local church. Their children, also, are receiving Christ as their
savior, one by one, as they reach the age of accountability.
What a Blessing, to know that your children, and children’s children, will join
you in eternity.
In 1991, Ray received an Anointing and
Call of God to the office of Teacher – Ephesians 4:11b.
Brother Ray continues to teach God’s Holy Word to an adult class on Wednesday
nights, and covers the entirety of the Bible in approximately 4.5 years, on a
topical basis, with an application to the life of the believer.
This has been one of the greatest joys in his life, as a Child of God,
and one of the most humbling; to be entrusted to share the Truth of God, from
His Word, the Holy Bible.
Brother Ray, is continuing to answer the
call of God he received 20 years ago, and will do so, until the Trumpet Call of
God, for the “Catching away of the church”- 1Thessalonians 4:16,17, or until God
takes him home to be with him in Glory. In August, 2008, Brother Ray became
Credentialed with Bethany Ministerial Fellowship, as a licensed Minister of the
Gospel. And now, this web site; Living Words For Life, is
one avenue Almighty God has birthed in Brother Ray , to reach multitudes with
the Love, God has for mankind in his eternal Word, the Holy Bible.
That love, will build the life of the believer, and draw the lives of
those who do not yet believe, to know the One who died, that we might live;
Jesus Christ, our wonderful Lord. May He and He alone,
receive all the Glory, from the pages of this web site;
