How to Live Until He Returns (42 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 4) – Eugene Higgins looks at the incident of the golden calf at Horeb, and the building of the Tabernacle – the twin issues of worship and work. Moses is a picture of an absent Saviour, and a preserved believer, and a consecrated leader, all at the same time. Mr Higgins draws out powerful lessons from this part of Israel’s journey to the promised land. Readings: Exod 19:24-25, 25:1, 32:108, 17-19a, 30-35, 35:20-29, 39:42-43 (Message preached…

Provision for the Desert Pathway (42 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 3) – Eugene Higgins preaches on the “manna from heaven” which was God’s provision for Israel in the wilderness. The manna is a “double type”: it typifies both the incarnate Word (the Lord Jesus) and the inspired Word (the Bible). Mr Higgins brings out many lessons about our daily need for the Word of God from the history of the manna. He closes by looking at Israel’s enemy Amalek, which is a picture of the flesh.…

Commandment No 9 (38 min)

PART 10 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 9th commandment – “Thou shalt not bear false witness”. He reminds us that the devil (diabolos) is “the accuser” or “the slanderer”, before outlining numerous ways in which we can be a false witness and use the tongue improperly – perjury, rumour-mongering, flattery, insinuation, slander and promise breaking. In Proverbs 6:17-19 “a lying tongue” and “a false witness” are 2 of the 7 things the Lord hates (Message preached 16th Sept 2018)

Commandment No 10 (38 min)

PART 11 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 10th commandment – “Thou shalt not covet”. After defining covetousness, he deals with the topic under 5 headings. The origin of, operation of, outcome of, opposite of, and overcoming of covetousness. Covetousness is a besetting sin that creeps into almost every sphere of life and needs constant mortification (Col 3:5). What does Paul mean in that verse when he says “Covetousness…is idolatry”? (Message preached 9th Sept 2018)

Commandment No 8 (41 min)

PART 9 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the 8th commandment – “Thou shalt not steal”. He asks 3 questions: “What is theft?”, “Why and where was the commandment instituted?”, and “How does it apply to us today?” From Eph 4:28 Mervyn highlights a number of ways in which we can easily be guilty of stealing today, in areas of time, money and truthfulness. Some comments along the way about socialism and capitalism make for interesting listening (Message preached 10th Jun…

PART 8 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 7th commandment – “Thou shalt not commit adultery”. He distinguishes between physical, heart and spiritual adultery, as well as pointing out the difference between several major Bible words related to sexual immorality in general. He suggests a reason why adultery is the one sexual sin that appears in the list of the 10 commandments (Message preached 3rd Jun 2018)

Commandment No 6 (39 min)

PART 7 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the 6th commandment – “Thou shalt not kill”. He takes the subject up under three headings: What is murder? Why and when was it prohibited? and How does this principle apply today? Issues such as “killing in war” and whether or not “capital punishment” applies today are examined, as well as the Lord’s words in Matt 5:21-22 where He deals with anger in the heart as the motivation behind murder (Message preached 27th…

Commandment No 5 (46 min)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 5th commandment – “Honour your father and mother”, the first commandment with promise. Children can honour their parents by living an obedient life, lifting their parents’ load, learning their parents’ lessons and lavishing love on their parents. Parents can act towards their children in such a way as to encourage them to show honour – by loving, lifting, limiting, and leading them, and laughing with them (Message preached 20th May 2018)

Commandment No 4 (44 min)

PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 4th Commandment. He lists 6 reasons why God gave the Sabbath. He proves that the Saturday Sabbath was a ceremonial, not a moral law, and that it was not instituted until Sinai. It was a “shadow” that gave way to the “substance” at the coming of Christ. He also looks at why believers meet on Sundays today, which the Bible calls “the Lord’s Day”. Useful for Seventh Day Adventists or anyone confused…

Should Christians Keep the Sabbath? (44 min)

After listing 6 reasons why God gave the Sabbath, Michael Penfold proves that the Saturday Sabbath was a ceremonial, not a moral law, and that it was not instituted until Sinai. It was a “shadow” that gave way to the “substance” at the coming of Christ. He also looks at why believers meet on Sundays today, which the Bible calls “the Lord’s Day” (Message preached 13th May 2018)

Commandment No 3 (44 min)

PART 4 – Jonathan Black preaches on “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain”. He takes the subject up under three headings: 1. The meaning of God’s name in Hebrew (Jehovah, Elohim and Adonai); 2. The mention of God’s name at Horeb (Sinai); and 3. The misuse of God’s name – our holiness. He lists 7 ways in which it is possible to take God’s name in vain today. A challenging message! (Message preached…

Commandment No 2 (42 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 2nd commandment – “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images” etc. He explains the difference between the 1st and 2nd commandment before contrasting true worship with false worship. Not only is the worship of idols prohibited, but worshipping the true God through idols is also prohibited. God, the supreme, sovereign, self-existent Creator is a jealous God – He desires, deserves and demands worship to Him and Him alone (Message preached…
