Bible Reading in Romans 3:19-31 (95 min)

EASTER CONF 2019 – Ian Jackson opens up Romans 3:19-31, a passage that gives the doctrinal underpinnings of the gospel and explains how God can be just, as well as the justifier of someone who believes in Christ. All Christians, and especially all gospel preachers, must get to grips with this hugely significant Bible passage. A discussion of the passage follows, verse by verse, with help from Frank Sona, Mark Sweetnam and others. Vital matters discussed include: the difference between…

The Judgment Seat of Christ (49 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 10 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the topic of the judgment seat of Christ under 6 headings: survey, subjects, scope, schema, schedule, and significance. Three issues in connection with the “bema” are: review, reward and revelation. The significance of the event is 4-fold: a caution, a challenge, a commandment and a comfort. Readings: Rom 14:7-14, 1 Cor 3:9-15, 4:1-5, 2 Cor 5:1-15 (Message preached 23rd Dec 2018)

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…

Dead and Risen with Christ (48 min)

PART 7 – Jonathan Black expounds Romans 6:1-14 the key NT passage dealing with the death, burial and resurrection of the believer through identification with Christ, which has freed him from the dominion of sin and brought him under a new master, the Lord Jesus. This is positional truth that the Christian must both know, and then “reckon” to be true in his life, issuing in a yielding to God (Message preached 15th Nov 2018)

The Righteousness of God (46 min)

PART 6 – Mervyn Hall expounds the key NT passage that explains the heart of “the gospel” – Rom 3:19-31. He distinguishes between God’s righteous character on the one hand (v24-25), and the “gift of righteousness” that God dispenses to the sinner who believes in Christ on the other (v21-22). The passage brings these two together at the end, where God, through the cross, is “righteous” while at the same time “declaring righteous” the sinner who trusts in His Son…

Women Who Knew Paul (43 min)

PART 11 – Josh Jacob closes the sermon series on “Women in the Bible” with a message about women known to the apostle Paul, including Phoebe, Priscilla, Lydia and two sisters in Philippi named Euodias and Syntyche. The commendation that Paul gives these and other women forever puts to rest any idea that Paul was a misogynist! Josh starts in Romans 16 with a long list of names commended by Paul, including numerous women (Message preached 19th Nov 2017)

Christ in Romans (43 min)

PART 5 – Dan Rudge preaches on “Christ in the epistle of Romans”. He highlights the 7 references to Christ as God’s “Son” in the epistle and develops the related themes of the person, proclamation, provision and purpose of the Son. In the second half of his message, he distinguishes between propitiation, redemption and justification and develops the theme of the believer’s death to sin in Chapter 6 (Message preached 5th Oct 2017)

God’s Love for His Enemies (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on “God’s love for His enemies” from Rom 5:6-10. When Christ came to earth He was “hated without a cause”, rejected and slain. All of us, from birth, are at enmity with God due to the miserable and sinful state we find ourselves in by nature – a nature that manifests itself in wicked words, thoughts and deeds. Yet, God loved us even when we were enemies! Mr Higgins uses the story of Jim Elliot as the…

Help for the Helpless (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on the “helplessness of the sinner” – a Bible truth much neglected in the present day. Many who apparently acknowledge their “sinfulness” have never understood their helplessness, and thus do not know the saving power of Christ. Mr Higgins uses the life story of J.S. Bach as the springboard for this message. His readings were Matt 14:22-33 and Rom 5:6. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 13th 2017)

God of Patience, Hope and Peace (44 min)

PART 2 – Mervyn Hall preaches on three Divine titles: “the God of Peace” (Rom 16:20), “the God of hope” (Rom 15:13) and “the God of patience” (Rom 15:5). He spends some time introducing the differences between a name (designed to convey essence and nature) and a title (designed to convey what someone does, in terms of work or office) before working through the three titles and explaining their significance (Message preached 15th Jan 2017)

The Glory of God – His Purposes (39 min)

PART 6 – Michael Penfold preaches on the “purpose of the ages” and explains how it is designed to bring glory to God. History is heading to a glorious climax…the “goal of history” that was purposed by God in Christ before the foundation of the world. Do you know what this goal is? Open your Bible to Ephesians chapters 1 and 3, and Romans chapter 8, and listen along to familiarise yourself with this most important subject – the divine…

Three Voices, and “Heaven or Hell”? (48 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2016 – Frank Sona preaches on three voices. The voice of creation (Rom 8:22), the voice of the law (Rom 3:19) and the voice of the blood of Christ (Heb 12:24-25), each of which have a notable message to tell us. Andrew Steele continues with a look at the narrative of “the unrepentant man in hell” from Luke Ch 16, and preaches a most solemn and heartfelt message of warning to his audience (Messages preached 11th July 2016)
