7 Garments of the High Priest (52 min)

PART 6 – In the sixth of our series on “Scripture Sevens”, Tom West speaks on the 7 garments of the High Priest: the linen breeches, the linen coat, the girdle of fine needlework, the mitre, the blue robe, the ephod, and the breastplate. He draws doctrinal and practical teaching from these types, both in relation to the person of Christ and also the believer. Readings: Exod 28:1-4, Heb 2:14-18, 4:14-16 (Message preached 20th May 2021)  

Egypt to Canaan – Part 3 (58 min)

PART 3 of 7 – John Grant continues his series on the journey of Israel from Egypt to the Promised Land. On night 1 Israel doubted the promise of God. Night 2 Israel doubted the provision of God. Now on night 3, John preaches on Massah and Meribah where Israel murmured and doubted the presence of God. Says Mr Grant: “There’s nothing worse in an assembly than a bunch of murmurers”! Lessons are drawn from the smiting of the rock,…

Egypt to Canaan – Part 2 (57 min)

PART 2 of 7 – John Grant takes up the story of the “manna from heaven”, that came at the 7th of 44 stopping places on the way from Egypt to Canaan. As Israel moved through their journey, God repeatedly tested their faith. The test this time was “Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?”. When your resources dry up, and when you stand in need of help, do you believe that God can meet that need? Mr Grant…

Egypt to Canaan – Part 1 (49 min)

PART 1 of 7 – John Grant begins a series of messages on the journey of the children of Israel “from Egypt to Canaan”. After looking generally at a number of journeys in Scripture he introduces his subject. Deliverance from Egypt (the penalty of sin) was followed by the crossing of the Red Sea (the power of sin). Israel’s journey began with a song of redemption but also with an impossible situation into which God put them to prove them…

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…

Commandment No 7 (38 min)

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)
