Even So Send I You (48 min)

EASTER 2019 – After showing how the Upper Room appearance of the Lord in John 20 is a picture of the local assembly, Ian Jackson preaches a powerful and challenging message on how to serve God when He sends us…with a “consecrated heart”, with an “undivided loyalty”, within a “separated pathway”, with a “submissive mind”, and with the “strengthening of the assembly” in view (Message preached 22nd April 2019)

The Judgment of the Cross (39 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 7 – Jonathan Black preaches on the judgment of the cross, and points out that God pronounced a judicial verdict on a number of things and persons on the day the Lord Jesus died. The world system was judged (John 12:31), as well as Satan the prince of this world (Heb 2:14-15, Col 2:13-15). God passed sentence on “the old man” – our former self in Adam (Rom 6:6). Not only did the Lord Jesus…

You Must Be Born Again (48 min)

PART 4 – After giving some general remarks about John’s gospel, Jonathan Black expounds the first 17 verses of John Chapter 3. This is the key New Testament passage from which we can learn about the nature and need of the new birth. Some questions answered in this message include: What does it mean to be “born of water and the Spirit”?; Is baptism anything to do with “regeneration”?; Is the “world” of John 3:16 “the world of the elect”…

In the Beginning Was the Word (48 min)

PART 3 – Dan Rudge expounds the first 18 verses of John’s gospel (John 1:1-18). He explains that the passage has a chiastic structure that makes vvs12-13 the centre of the passage. He addresses a number of important issues throughout his thorough exposition: when was “in the beginning”?; what is the significance of “the logos”?; why would “the Word was a god” be an inadmissible translation in v1?; and what does “grace for grace” mean? (Message preached 18th Oct 2018)

You Must Be Born Again (21 min)

Mervyn Hall preaches on a vital Bible text: “You must be born again” (John 3:7). “You” – it’s personal; “must” – it’s essential; “be” – it’s real; “born again” – it’s spiritual. What does it mean to be born again? Why must I be born again? Listen to this vital message and learn your need of a divine regenerative work of God in your life if you ever hope to be in heaven. Do you say you are born again?…

The Dangers to Marriage (53 min)

PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE Part 3 – Jonathan Black preaches on the dangers to marriage under 4 headings: Celebration, Communication, Contamination and Consecration. In a very practical message he deals with essential topics such as language, love and leadership. Warnings are given about adultery, abuse, alcohol and addiction (to gambling, gaming and pornography). Finally couples are urged to put consecration to God first. Readings in Luke 1:5-6, John 2:1-2 and 1 Pet 3:1-7 (Message given Apr 19th 2018)

Christ in the Gospel of John (43 min)

PART 4 – Peter Scarsbrook preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of John”. After some helpful introductory remarks, Peter takes up numerous statements that other people made about Christ, starting with the words of John the Baptist in John Ch 1. Through these positive and negative comments, a fascinating portrait of the Son of God is brought before the hearer (Message preached 28th Sept 2017)

John 3:16 (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on John 3:16. “God loved” – an incredible fact. “that He gave His only Son” – an incomparable act. “That whosoever believeth” – an intelligent act. “Has everlasting life” – an indisputable fact. Listen carefully as he explains how it is dangerously easy to turn “believing” into a “work” – a very common mistake made by people who have an intellectual grasp of the gospel but remain lost and in the dark. Mr Higgins uses the life…

Whosoever (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on 4 mentions of “whosoever” in the Bible. The whosoever that once meant me (John 8:34); the whosoever that would have been me (Rev 20:15); the whosoever that now means me (John 3:16), and the whosoever that still means you (Rev 22:17). Mr Higgins has some vital things to say about the unchangeable corruption of the human heart; about the need to strive to enter the narrow gate, and about the danger of being left behind when…

Believe in the Light (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on “Christ as the light of the world” and urges his audience to “believe in the light” while they have the light (John 12:36). In an exceedingly solemn and searching message Mr Higgins describes the light of God’s holiness exposing the corrupt heart of man, both in time and at the final judgment. He uses the life story of Hugh Latimer as the springboard for this message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 16th 2017)

The Mount of Olives (38 min)

Thomas West preaches on the topic of the Mount of Olives in relation to the Lord Jesus. The Mount of Olives is where the Lord “went apart”, was “alone”, was “arrested”, from where he “ascended” and to where He will “arrive” on His return. An instructive and practical look at this interesting subject. Readings: John 7, Matt 26, Acts 1 and Zech 14 (Message preached May 11th 2017)
