Israel Shall Dwell Alone (38 min)

PART 3 – Tom West preaches on the Israel’s separation as a picture of ours. He takes up the subject under three headings: the strangeness, strength and sufficiency of separation.

In this difficult path, God promised to meet all their needs. Readings: Exod 34:11-17, Num 22:1-2, 5-6, 23:7-10, Deut 7:1-6, 17:14-15 (Message preached 10th…

The Assembly – A Gathering Like No Other (42 min)

PART 5 – Tom West preaches on the uniqueness of the local assembly. He stresses the non-negotiable nature of the doctrine of the local New Testament church and highlights its preciousness to God.

There is nothing like it in the current dispensation – a unique gathering! (Message preached 5th Feb 2015)
