Egypt to Canaan – Part 3 (58 min)

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

(Message preached 9th Sept 2018)

PART 9 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the 8th commandment – “Thou shalt not steal”.

Some comments along the way about socialism and capitalism make for interesting listening (Message preached 10th Jun…

Commandment No 5 (46 min)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 5th commandment – “Honour your father and mother”, the first commandment with promise.

Commandment No 4 (44 min)

PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 4th Commandment. He lists 6 reasons why God gave the Sabbath.

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.

Commandment No 1 (41 min)

PART 2 – Michael Penfold outlines God’s essential moral absolutes, that pre-date and post-date the law of Moses, before dealing with the 1st commandment.

He explains that though the Mosaic law has been abolished, Christians…

Christ our Advocate (36 min)

Jochebed and Miriam (41 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on Jochebed and Miriam – mother and daughter – from Exodus 2 and Hebrews 11.
