The Right Thing in the Right Place (37 min)

EASTER CONF 2019 – Frank Sona takes up the truth of the local assembly from Genesis Ch 22, where Abraham goes to “the place” out of “obedience to God’s Word”. He draws out many lessons from this pivotal day in the life of Abraham – a day that began with obedience and ended with worship (Message preached Apr 22nd 2019)

Why I Am Complementarian (43 min)

PART 8 – Michael Penfold expounds complementarianism – that truth that God not only created two different genders in the beginning, but that He assigned different roles to each – headship to the male, and ‘helper-ship’ to the female. Opposed by feminism, this is nevertheless the plain teaching of Genesis Ch 2 (before the fall) and is reiterated in 7 key passages in the NT – Eph 5:21-23, Col 3:18-19, 1 Tim 2:8-15, Titus 2:4-5, 1 Cor 11:1-16, 14:34-38, 1…

The Judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah (35 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 4 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah. From Ezekiel 16:48-50 and Luke 17:26-32 he outlines the sins of these ancient cities (features repeated in our day) and how Abraham pleaded with God to spare the cities from judgment. The Bible says “As it was in the days of Lot…even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed” (Message preached 4th Nov 2018)

The Judgment of the Worldwide Flood (37 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 3 – Jonathan Black preaches on the judgment of the flood in the days of Noah. After some introductory remarks about Genesis, he looks at the period, pronouncement, purpose and prophecy of the flood. The Bible is clear – man’s sin caused God to judge the world with a global flood with only 8 people saved in the ark. Lessons are drawn from how God dealt with Enoch, Methusaleh and Noah and his family (Message…

The Judgment on Sin in Eden (39 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 2 – Michael Penfold preaches on God’s judgment on humanity for its rebellion in Eden’s garden. From the foundational chapter of Genesis 3, he deals with the context, cause, character and consequences of the first sin. God’s fairness in banishing Adam and Eve from the garden, and constituting all of their progeny sinners due to “one man’s sin” – hence the doctrine of “original sin” – is expounded and defended (Message preached 21st Oct 2018)

The Judgment of Satan and His Angels (46 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 1 – Mervyn Hall expounds the subject of God’s judgments on Satan and his angels – discussing God’s motive, manner and moment of judgment. Questions addressed include: When did Satan fall? What brought about his fall? Were there two falls of angels, or one? Who are the sons of God in Genesis 6? Readings in Gen 3, 6, John 16, 2 Pet 2 and Jude (Message preached 14th Oct 2018)

The Original Kingdom Pattern (30 min)

PART 2 – From Genesis Chs 1-3, David Gilliland explains that at the beginning God delegated rule over creation to Adam, who was crowned with glory and honour and given dominion over God’s works. This was the “original kingdom pattern”. All of this came under subtle attack from Satan. (Due to a recording malfunction, 15 minutes is missing at the 28.10 mark. At that point, Mr Gilliland outlined the results of the fall, and how those results will be reversed…

Separation in Picture and Type (47 min)

PART 2 – Norman Mellish speaks on the topic of separation from various pictures and types in the Old Testament. He draws principles of separation from Genesis Ch 1 and the creation week, from Leviticus 11 and the instructions regarding clean and unclean animals, and from Nehemiah Chs 1-6 where walls were built and the testimony of God was preserved (Message preached 3rd May 2018)

The Duties of Marriage (42 min)

PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE Part 2 – Michael Penfold preaches on the duties and responsibilites of husbands and wives within marriage. God created male and female, and assigned different roles to them in the home, the assembly and society. In his role as the head of the wife, man has certain responsibilites; in her role as helper, so does the woman. What are these roles and how is this concept to be defended in a world of feminism, roleless marriages and…

The Doctrine of Marriage (45 min)

PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE Part 1 – Joshua Jacob takes up “the doctrine of marriage” from Gen 1 and 2, Prov 31 and Eph 5. Marriage and the family is the basis of human society and is introduced in the Bible long before “government”. Marriage is the total commitment of the total person for a total life. Josh outlines the reason, responsibilties, relationships, requirements and rhythm of marriage in a wide ranging message aimed at preparing young couples for marriage (Message…

Cain and Nod (43 min)

PART 4 – Colin Hutchison preaches on Cain in the land of Nod (Gen 4:16-26). He expounds the origin of the line of Cain, and how that line develops in the record given in the Bible. From Gen 4 he shows the origin of the godless world of commerce, music and the arts. In contrast to the world’s godless self-glorifying music, the next time we read of music is Exod 15, where the people of God sing about redemption (Message…

Jacob and Bethel (56 min)

PART 1 – Colin Hutchison preaches on lessons that Jacob learned at Bethel, the house of God. He likens Jacob’s experience in Genesis Ch 28 to that of a person in the present day who understands, by revelation from the Word of God, what a local assembly is – the place where God dwells. Colin tells the story of how he personally came to understand the truth of the house of God and challenges his audience to have convictions of…
