What is the Church? (52 min)

PART 1 of 6 – In the first of a series of 6 messages on “Questions about the assembly”, Tom Bentley (1924-2011) answers the question, “What is the church”? He starts by introducing “the church which is His body”, and makes the all-important point that this church did not exist prior to the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2). Looking at the “church which is His body” dispensationally, symbolically, mystically and eternally, Mr Bentley distinguishes it from the local assembly, which…

The Challenge of the Unmanned Gap (37 min)

David Gilliland preaches on God’s word to Israel in Ezekiel Ch 22, a chapter in which God speaks about the state of the land, the sins of the land, and finally the search in the land: God’s search for a man to “stand in the gap”. Along life’s journey there is a need for boundaries and hedges with no gaps. Personal hedges, family hedges, marriage hedges, business hedges, and assembly hedges. Mr Gilliland speaks on the hedge of separation, of…

Long-suffering, Gentleness and Goodness (51 min)

PART 3 of 4 – Dan Rudge preaches on the second triad of fruits in the list of the fruits of the Spirit: long-suffering, gentleness and goodness. He explains what these fruits are, and then traces these fruits in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, before finally applying the practical import of these fruits in our lives as believers. Readings: Gal 5, 1 Tim 1:15-Acts 10:38 (Message preached at Wallingford Gospel Hall, Nov 2015)

The Heavens Do Rule (13 min)

The financial crisis; climate change; Brexit; US riots and elections; big-tech domination; Coronavirus. The list of stressful issues and crises just keeps growing. How should a Christian react to a “world out of control”? Michael Penfold reminds us of the words of Dan 4:26, “The heavens do rule”. We worship a God who is sovereign over all and who delights to make even the wrath of man to praise Him (Message preached in Newtownstewart, Co Tyrone, Jan 1st 2017).

A Simple Request – “This Do in Remembrance of Me”

The request is about as simple as it could be. There’s no deep theology to ponder; there’s no ambiguity to make us wonder. The Lord Jesus plainly said, “This do in remembrance of Me.” Yet as simple as the request is, is it equally as simple to do? Can a believer come each Lord’s Day, meeting with the local assembly where they are in fellowship, and take part honourably at the Lord’s Supper by simply “showing up”? And having done…

Are Women to be Silent in Local Church Meetings?

In our secular, western world, any restrictions upon women suggests the worst sort of misogyny and sexism. The radical feminist movement and other equal rights advocates argue that any form of gender discrimination in leadership or public participation is both morally wrong and potentially illegal. And in the environment of a church, as a symbol of morality and righteousness, this burden, they argue, is particularly acute. But God’s assembly is not just any society or any church. It is a…

Fret Not

I have a confession to make. There is a Bible word I have read many times without actually knowing what it meant. How can it be, you ask, that having spent somewhat more than 45 years on this planet (give or take a few months) I am just now learning the meaning of this word? It’s not that I glossed over it, uninterested in its meaning. It’s that I read it, thought I knew what it meant, and consequently missed its application…
