Sermons on Psalms

The Recovery of a Lost Smile (41 min)

David Gilliland preaches on Psalm 39:13 which, he explains, carries the sense of “O spare me, that I may smile again”. After some introductory remarks about people who are always smiling, some who never smile, and others who smile on the outside but whose heart isn’t smiling, David focuses his attention on two questions: “What makes Christians lose their smile?” and “How can Christians get their smile back”? He draws answers to these questions from Psalm 39 and 40. An…

David’s Prayer for Pardon (42 min)

PART 4 – Josh Jacob looks at Psalm 51 and examines David’s “prayer for pardon” – a heartfelt confession that followed on from his sin with Bathsheba. The Psalm (v1-10 repentance, v11-15 repercussion, v16-17 redemption, v18-19 restoration) reveals our personal capacity to sin, the 7-fold consequences of sin, and the 3 principles that speak to a “comeback from sin” (Message preached 26th May 2019)

The Ultimate Kingdom Psalm (58 min)

PART 1 – David Gilliland introduces his series of 5 messages on “the kingdom of God in human history” with a look at Psalm 145, which he calls the ultimate kingdom psalm. The 7+1 psalms of King David bunched together from Psalm 138 to 145 Mr Gilliland likens to the 7 future years of tribulation, that give way to the great day of Christ’s millennial glory. This message is full of fascinating insights into the mathematical structure of the Psalter…

Separation Unto God (36 min)

PART 8 – Joshua Jacob points us to the God of holiness who calls us to Himself in separation. A comprehension of the holy God who has separated us to Himself (Psa 4:3) will save us from holding the doctrine of separation merely as a dry cold fact. Rather, in the words of the hymn writer, “The things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace”. The Lord is looking for dedicated, separated servants…

The Love of Unity (47 min)

EASTER CONF 2018 – Craig Munro preaches on the need for unity among God’s people, from Psalm 132 and 133. “Behold how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”.

This is Craig’s final message in his 3-part conference exercise on faith, hope and love (Message preached Apr 2nd 2018)

The Only Begotten Son (40 min)

PART 7 – Michael Penfold preaches on the expression “the only begotten Son” (Gk: monogenes) and explains its significance. He also takes up another title of Christ, “the first-begotten” (Gk: prototokos), and expounds its meaning. Finally, he takes up the words “This day have I begotten Thee” and, starting in Psalm 2, reveals the import of this precious expression (Message preached 26th Feb 2017)

What Wait I For? and “He would not go in” (56 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2016 – Andrew Steele preaches on Psa 39:7 “What wait I for?” and outlines three reasons why salvation is urgent and why you should not wait any longer to be saved. Frank Sona continues with a look at the “elder brother” in Luke 15 who, because of his pride, “would not go in” and enjoy the feast. Powerful and challenging preaching (Messages preached 30th June 2016)

Hold Thou Me Up (39 min)

EASTER CONF 2016 – John Fleck preaches on the text “Hold Thou me up, and I shall be safe” (Psa 119:117).

A searching message for every Christian and a reminder of our great need of divine help (Message preached 26th Mar 2016)

The Secret of Happiness and “the Just for the Unjust” (50 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2015 – Tom Armstrong preaches on the secret of happiness: sins forgiven (Psa 32:1), being saved (Deut 33:29) and having one’s name in the book of life (Luke 10:20). John Rogers preaches on how a person can be brought to God – because Christ died “the just, for the unjust”. Clear, direct and forthright preaching (Messages preached 6th July 2015)

Calvary and Forgiveness (45 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2015 – Tom Armstrong preaches on three words from the messianic Psalm 22 – forsaken, finished and forever, and dwells on the atoning work of Christ on the cross.

Look to the Lord and Turn to the Lord (49 min)

Raising Children (47 min)
