Jimmy Paton – Lessons on Prayer (37 min)

Jimmy Paton (1914-1999) from Ayrshire, Scotland, was converted to Christ at the age of 15.

Encouraged and greatly helped by men like John Douglas and Willie Trew, Jimmy was much used in instructing the Lord’s people through devotional and practical Bible teaching. When he spoke on the person of Christ, he was especially choice,…

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…

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”.

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)

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.
