The Shout the World Won’t Hear (20 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on a number of the “shouts” of the Lord Jesus. “If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink”…”Lazarus come forth”…”It is finished.” But there’s going to be a “last shout”, the shout the world won’t hear. An encouraging and stirring message, focussing on the coming of the Lord. Reading: 1 Cor 15:51-58, 1 Thess 4:12-17 (Message preached at “The Island Conference”, Prince Edward Island, Canada, 2015)

Not for Sale (31 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on the story of Ahab’s violent theft of a vineyard whose owner, Naboth, said was “not for sale”. Two lessons stand out in the passage: 1. The danger of covetouness (Ahab), and 2. the duty of commitment (Naboth). Jonathan makes weighty and challenging practical applications from each aspect of the story. Readings: 1 Kings 21:1-7, 14-15 (Message preached in Pope Road Gospel hall, Prince Edward Island, Canada, 2016)

Faith That Works (43 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on the life of a major character in the book of Joshua: the wall-dwelling woman of Jericho, Rahab. Rarely taken up as a subject for ministry, Rahab’s life contains many lessons in faith – “faith that works”. She even gets a few mentions in the New Testament! Jonathan brings out numerous helpful practical lessons from the story of her life for our benefit. Readings: Matt 1:5-6a, Heb 11:31, Jas 2:25, Josh 2:1-3, 8-11 (Message preached on Prince…

The Place (28 min)

Jonathan Procopio preaches on the importance of the place that “God has told us of”. He’s referring to the local assembly and the need to appreciate that this “place” has been revealed in Scripture by the Lord so that we can recognise it and be faithful to it. Jonathan draws this lesson from the picture of Abraham going to the “place of God’s appointing” in Genesis 22:1-18 (Message preached at the Island Conference, Prince Edward Island, Canada, 2013).

Bleeding for the Sheep (33 min)

Jon Procopio preaches a powerful message on the responsibilities of the sheep in an assembly, and the corresponding responsibilities of the shepherds (the elders). Working from John Ch 10, Jonathan’s 4 headings are, 1. Read the sheep; 2. Lead the sheep; 3. Feed the sheep, and 4. Bleed for the sheep. This is a deeply impactful message originally preached in North America. It will repay careful listening. Readings: John 10:1-5, 9-18, 27-30.

The Landmark of the Gospel Meeting (30 min)

Jon Procopio follows up his message on the landmark of the prayer meeting with a message on the landmark of the gospel meeting. In another powerful sermon, Jonathan flags up the importance of preaching the gospel and urges his audience not to abandon gospel preaching, nor to add to it, nor to replace it with other methods that are not found in Scripture. Jonathan’s insightful message is based on Scripture and backed up by decades of experience in gospel work.…

The Landmark of the Prayer Meeting (18 min)

Jon Procopio preaches a rousing message about the importance of the assembly prayer meeting. In the first 8 minutes of his message he speaks about the prohibitions in Prov 22:28 and 23:10 against “removing the landmarks” and makes the point that the first landmark many Christians remove in their lives is attendance at the assembly prayer meeting. The vital part that the assembly prayer meeting plays in the life of the Christian and the local assembly is highlighted powerfully in…
