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 Practical Kingdom Parables (37 min)

PART 5 – David Gilliland considers the parable of the nobleman from Luke 19:11-27. This key parable reveals that though the kingdom was not restored to Israel at the time of Christ’s first coming, it most certainly will be at His second. In the mean time, believers are to “occupy” until He returns. Faithfulness in little things during the time of the King’s rejection and absence will lead to larger responsibilities being given when the kingdom is inaugurated. What kingdom…

“Foundations”, and “The Beginning and the End” (48 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2018 – Craig Munro preaches on the parable of the two foundations (Luke 6:46-49). What is your foundation? Reason, religion, good works, feelings? The only true foundation of Christ.

Attestation – What is the Bible? (41 min)

PART 1 – Mervyn Hall introduces this series of messages by asking three questions: What is the Bible? (Definition); Why do we have a Bible? (Design); and How did we get our Bible? (Delivery). He outlines the 4 types of revelation through which God speaks to humanity (Creation, conscience, Christ and the Canon) and lists numerous reasons why God gave us the Word of God (Readings: Psa 19:1-7, 2 Tim 2:14-16, Heb 4:12, 2 Pet 1:2-21, Luke 24:25-27) (Message preached…

Christ in the Gospel of Luke (48 min)

PART 3 – Scott Dunn preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of Luke”. Acknowledging that most expositors see Luke as emphasising the humanity of Christ, Scott contends that Luke’s main emphasis is on Christ as “Saviour”. He traces this theme, and the theme of “the plan of salvation”, through the early chapters of Luke in particular (Message preached 21st Sept 2017)

Jesus Only (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on salvation through “Jesus only” (Matt 17:8), through “faith only” (Luke 8:50), resting on God’s “word only” (Matt 8:8). He presses the uniqueness of Christ as the only Saviour and the importance of resting on what God says – not on your own personal feelings – for the possession and assurance of salvation. Mr Higgins uses the conversion of Martin Luther as the springboard for this message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 12th 2017)

Mervyn also gives practical hints in relation to studying for, preparing for and delivering…

Remembrance and The Prodigal Son (45 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2016 – Frank Sona preaches on a “horrible remembrance” (Luke 16), a “halted remembrance” (Gen 40-41) and an “honest remembrance” (Heb 10:17). Andrew Steele takes up the parable of the prodigal son from Luke 15 and preaches the gospel from this famous passage (Messages preached 15th July 2016)

Two Prayers and Three Things You Need (50 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2016 – Frank Sona preaches on 2 Cor 9:15 (Thanks for God’s Son) and Luke 18:11-12 (Thanks for self). He shows the terrible hindrance that pride is to being saved. Andrew Steele speaks on “three things you need to be saved” from Luke 19. You need “haste”, “humility” and, most essentially you need “Him”, the Lord Jesus. If you have a careless attitude to salvation, listen to the section from 36.42 min to 40.18 min, for a wake…

The Great Supper and “If any man thirst” (52 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2016 – Andrew  Steele preaches on “the great supper” from Luke Ch 14. His theme is “Come, for all things are now ready”.

PART 10 – Leslie Craig preaches on the responsibilities, requirements and the review of the stewardship given to Christians. From Luke 16, 1 Cor 4, Titus 1 and 1 Peter 3, Mr Craig shows that all Christians are stewards – of time, of love, of property and of gift – and will answer to God one day for how we handled the responsibility He put into our hands (Message preached 5th June 2016)
