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)

The King is Coming! (29 min)

In the midst of global turmoil, it does the heart good to remember that God’s programme and purpose is on course for perfect fulfillment when Christ returns to set up His Kingdom and reign as King in Jerusalem. John Fleck sets out the course of events that precede that Kingdom – the rapture, the tribulation and the second advent of Christ – after which the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdom of our God and His Christ. From…

The Mark of the Beast (41 min)

Sam Jennings preaches on the topic of what the Bible calls “the mark of the beast” (666), which is mentioned 8x in the book of Revelation. This mark will be introduced in the tribulation period after the rapture of the church, once the antichrist is on the scene. Mr Jennings asks two questions: 1. What is the mark of the beast? and 2. Why will there be a mark of the beast? He suggests it is a literal visible mark…

PART 5 – In the closing message of the conference, Ian Jackson gives a ‘prophetic overview’ from a dispensational viewpoint. He starts with the goal of God’s plan from Ephesians 1:10 (everything to be headed up in Christ in the Millennium), moving on to outline the programme of Daniel’s 70 weeks, and then…

PART 4 – Dispensationalism and the Gospel – Audio & Video (29 min)

A major conference on the topic of dispensationalism was held in Sarnia, Ontario, in 2015, with Dan Shutt, David Vallance and Ian Jackson sharing 5 preaching sessions between them. PART 4 – David Vallance preaches on dispensationalism and the gospel. If history and prophecy consists of a succession of different ages and dispensations, are there different ways of getting saved in those dispensations? David answers with an emphatic “no”. In every dispensation the source of salvation is grace, its basis is…

PART 3 – Dispensationalism and the Church – Audio & Video (58 min)

A major conference on the topic of dispensationalism was held in Sarnia, Ontario, in 2015, with Dan Shutt, David Vallance and Ian Jackson sharing 5 preaching sessions between them. PART 3 – Ian Jackson makes a solid scriptural case for the need to draw a very clear distinction between Israel and the Church – as to origin, character and destiny. Israel is God’s earthly people; the church is His heavenly people. Israel has been set aside for now – while the kingdom…

PART 2 – Dispensationalism and Its Competition – Audio & Video (54 min)

A major conference on the topic of dispensationalism was held in Sarnia, Ontario, in 2015, with Dan Shutt, David Vallance and Ian Jackson sharing 5 preaching sessions between them. PART 2 – David Vallance looks at the ramifications of a person’s eschatology (their view of future events). Why did Oliver Cromwell go into battle singing the Psalms, and crushing his enemies in spirit of a Joshua who conquered the Canaanites? Why was Luther anti-semitic? Why do some churches have ornate sanctuaries and…

PART 1 – Introduction to Dispensations – Audio & Video (52 min)

PART 1 – Dan Shutt introduces the biblical concept of a “dispensation” and explains how history, from Eden to the Millennium, is divided into numerous ages in which God administers His dealings with men in different ways to fulfil His ultimate purpose. After some introductory remarks, Dan works his way through…

The Practical Kingdom Parables (37 min)

PART 5 – David Gilliland considers the parable of the nobleman from Luke 19:11-27. This key parable reveals that though the kingdom was not restored to Israel at the time of Christ’s first coming, it most certainly will be at His second. In the mean time, believers are to “occupy” until He returns. Faithfulness in little things during the time of the King’s rejection and absence will lead to larger responsibilities being given when the kingdom is inaugurated. What kingdom…

The Glorious Kingdom Promises (60 min)

PART 4 – David Gilliland considers the programme of God’s kingdom from the captivity in Babylon through to the second coming of Christ. God sent prophets – Isaiah to Malachi – to sustain and encourage His people in dark days. Despite the disaster of the captivity and the tragedy of the cross, God’s original plan to have a kingdom headquartered in Jerusalem with the son of David on the throne of the Lord has not been abandoned. The present postponement…

The Historical Kingdom Picture (47 min)

PART 3 – In a sweeping address that covers over 1,500 years of history, David Gilliland traces the course of God’s dealings on the earth from the tower of Babel all the way through to the captivity in Babylon. The Kings of “this world” (Nimrod, Pharoah, Nebuchadnezzar etc.) have always opposed God’s rule, but in the nation of Israel, in particular under the rule of Solomon, God gave a preview of what the Kingdom of Christ will eventually look like…

The Original Kingdom Pattern (30 min)

PART 2 – From Genesis Chs 1-3, David Gilliland explains that at the beginning God delegated rule over creation to Adam, who was crowned with glory and honour and given dominion over God’s works. This was the “original kingdom pattern”. All of this came under subtle attack from Satan. (Due to a recording malfunction, 15 minutes is missing at the 28.10 mark. At that point, Mr Gilliland outlined the results of the fall, and how those results will be reversed…
