Theology 101 – Lordship (40 min)

PART 6 of 6 – In the last of a 6-part series on the fundamentals of the gospel, Mr Jim Allen speaks on the subject of Lordship. He first takes it up dispensationally and reveals the significance of the title “Lord Jesus Christ”. Then he takes a look at Lordship personally and practically and what it really means for a person to say “Jesus is Lord”. A challenging weighty message. Readings: Phil 2:5-11, Acts 2:36, 9:6, Rom 10:8-10, 14:6-12 (Message…

We Shall See His Glory – “Maranatha” (41 min)

One of John Glenville’s (1920-2013) favourite occupations was to exclaim “Maranatha” when he met another believer. Mr Glenville really seemed to live in a genuine and daily expectation of the imminent return of Christ, as should we all. In this message, given at the Belfast Easter Conference many years ago, Mr Glenville speaks on “beholding the glory of the Lord” and, of course, speaks in anticipation of the day when, caught up all together, we shall see Him and be…

“We’re only playing at church” (54 min)

The global lockdown emergency has disrupted the rhythm of meeting attendance and gospel labour, an unintended consequence of which might be the permanent loss of some of the biblical disciplines and habits of a lifetime of assembly testimony. But the need is greater than ever, and the commission still rings out “Go and make disciples of all men”. Albert Hull (1936-2015) preaches an urgent message on the character and cost of discipleship, taking up the subject under 7 headings: the…

VIDEO – Peter Orasuk’s Life Story (58 min)

On 20th November 1998, Peter Orasuk (1948-2005) told his life story in Stark Road Gospel Hall, in Livonia, Michigan, USA. 22 years later, the video of it has become available and we are delighted to be able to share it here, with kind permission. Raised in a strict home and taught traditional values as a child, Peter Orasuk got in with a rough crowd in his youth and ended up a drug addict and dealer, eventually finding himself behind bars.…

Gaius Goff – God at Work in Newfoundland (50 min)

Gaius Goff tells the story of the labours of Herb Harris, who was instrumental in the planting of 15 assemblies in Newfoundland, Canada. He then tells how he himself got involved in the work as a young man and was used to see the work expand and blessing abound. The emphasis in his message is on “vision”. What vision do we have for taking the gospel to a lost and dying world? This is a fascinating and stirring account of…

Who Is Willing? (23 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches a powerful message on King David’s question “Who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the LORD?” (1 Chron 29:5). Consecration is like signing a blank piece of paper and giving it to God to fill in as He will, but will you sign it? (Message preached at the Toronto Easter Conference 1990).

Gospel Hymn Singing – Toronto Conference 1991 (25 min)

25 minutes of mainly gospel hymn singing from the Toronto Easter Conference 1991, including one or more verses of “God in Mercy Sent His Son”, “God Loved the World of Sinners Lost”, “Break Thou the Bread of Life”, “Great God of Wonders All Thy Ways”, “I am Waiting for the Dawning”, “To God be the Glory”, “The Perfect Righteousness of God”, “Years I Spent in Vanity and Pride”, “Look to the Saviour on Calvary’s Tree”, and “God is Calling the…

WYSIWYG Christianity (51 min)

David Gilliland preaches a message he entitled “WYSIWYG Christianity”. WYSIWYG stands for “What You See Is What You Get”. We project an image, we create an impression, but does that correspond to what we really are? The Pharisees were “expert performers” but the Lord exposed them as hypocrites. David Gilliland looks at a number of people in the Bible who pretended to be someone they were not. The challenge is to be real, genuine and transparent, in a world of…

“I would have given anything to get God’s salvation” (26 min)

Bert Joyce (1927-2017) was raised in a Christian family under the sound of the gospel. He knew the Scriptures from his earliest days and sat under the preaching of mighty men of God like his uncle Albert Joyce, and Herb Harris. However, Bert, like many children brought up in such privileged circumstances, wanted to get away from the gospel and enjoy the world. But God visited Bert with a sickness that nearly took his life. He sobered up and sought…

Albert Joyce – “Come unto Me or Depart from Me” (14 min)

This recording, made in 1956 at a Bible Conference gospel meeting in Vancouver, Canada, features the voice of the late esteemed evangelist Albert Joyce (1897-1982). Mr Joyce was saved in May 1905, in Portobello, near Edinburgh, Scotland. Troubled about his soul, he looked at numerous gospel verses but wondered how he could get saved. “I knew all these verses, and I always believed they were true. How could I believe any differently?” Turning to Isaiah 53:5 and 6 he said,…

“One word exploded in my mind: Eternity!” (37 min)

Ben Sutton (1922-2007) grew up in a drunkard’s home. Hardship turned to tragedy when his mother died while he was still a boy. When Ben left school he became a coal miner and then, during WW2, he was in the Merchant Navy. He saw the horrors of war close-up, as German U-boats targetted the British and US ship convoys. At war’s end, Ben returned home to South Shields in the north east of England, where his favourite places were the…

7 Sayings of the Cross (54 min)

PART 3 – Dan Rudge preaches on the 7 sayings of the Lord Jesus on the cross. He raises some questions: “Father forgive them”; but who are the “them”? “Today in Paradise”; but where is Paradise? “My God, My God”; but why not “My Father, My Father”? Dan addresses these questions (and much else beside) in a wide-ranging helpful message. His headings for the Lord’s 7 sayings are: A word for the transgressors A word of truth A word of…
