Sermons on Joshua

Half-hearted Christianity (21 min)

David Vallance preaches on the challenging topic of half-hearted Christianity, using the story of the 2.5 tribes who wanted to stay on the “other side of Jordan” (instead of entering the promised land) as a springboard for his message. Food for thought from Reuben, Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh. Readings: Num 32:1-6, 10-11, 23, Josh 22:1-6, 10-12, 34, 1 Chron 5:23-26. (Message preached in Spring Creek Gospel Hall, Illinois, USA, 2019)

Faith That Works (43 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on the life of a major character in the book of Joshua: the wall-dwelling woman of Jericho, Rahab. Rarely taken up as a subject for ministry, Rahab’s life contains many lessons in faith – “faith that works”. She even gets a few mentions in the New Testament! Jonathan brings out numerous helpful practical lessons from the story of her life for our benefit. Readings: Matt 1:5-6a, Heb 11:31, Jas 2:25, Josh 2:1-3, 8-11 (Message preached on Prince…

Crossing, Conquering, and Claiming (44 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 6) – Eugene Higgins closes the series of messages on Egypt to Canaan with a look at crossing the Jordan (and what that event typifies); conquering the land (overcoming intimidation, temptation, deception ad amalgamation); and claiming the land (with examples from Caleb, Achsah, the daughters of Zelophehad and Levi). Readings: Josh 3:14-17, 4:6-9, 5:10-6:2, 13:14, 33, 14:6-12, 17:3-4 (Message preached 6th Oct 2019) Here’s a photo of the chart Mr Higgins used during this series:

The Judgment on Egypt and the Canaanites (38 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 5 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the judgment that God meted out to Egypt (and its gods) and later to the Canaanites. In each case, Mervyn outlines the context of the judgment, the charge made against Christianity because of the judgment, the cause of the judgment and the conclusions to be drawn from the judgment. He explains that atheists are “borrowing from God” when they complain about Joshua’s destruction of the Amorites (Message preached 11th…

The House of Achan and the Enemies of God (54 min)

PART 1 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Achan from Joshua Chs 6-7. What Achan did, and what he brought into his home, negatively affected him, his children and the whole assembly of God’s people. The lesson? Home life impacts all of life – work, family, and assembly. What is needed today is a restoration of sanctified homes where God is honoured. Mr Jackson asks “Is it time your home changed?” (Message preached 16th Feb 2017)

EASTER CONF 2009 – Assembly Commitment (37 min)

Are you committed to your local assembly? That’s the subject of this important message from David Gilliland based on the ancient story of Joshua & the Gibeonites in Joshua 9. Very challenging material (Message preached Easter Monday 13th April 2009)

Victory Over Secret Sin, and the Pursuit of Holiness (41 min)

David Gilliland delivers a searching word of ministry on victory over secret sin and on the pursuit of holiness based on Joshua’s destruction of the 5 kings in Joshua Ch 10. He touches on the dangers of the internet, and much else, in this powerful and effective message that will repay careful listening (Message preached Easter Monday April 13th 2009)
