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”.

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.

The present postponement…

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…

The Ultimate Kingdom Psalm (58 min)

PART 1 – David Gilliland introduces his series of 5 messages on “the kingdom of God in human history” with a look at Psalm 145, which he calls the ultimate kingdom psalm. The 7+1 psalms of King David bunched together from Psalm 138 to 145 Mr Gilliland likens to the 7 future years of tribulation, that give way to the great day of Christ’s millennial glory. This message is full of fascinating insights into the mathematical structure of the Psalter…

Where Do The Dead Go? (36 min)

Dispensationalism Part 13 – Michael Penfold takes up the subject of man’s future state under three headings: Where do people go at death? Where did Christ go at death? What is the future resurrection programme for the Church, Israel and the “wicked dead”? He deals with a number of false ideas such as annihilation, reincarnation, purgatory, soul-sleep and universalism and refutes them all from scripture. He also critiques the two-compartment theory. A wide ranging message that includes a look at the…

The Rapture and the Manifestation (31 min)

Dispensationalism Part 12 – Joshua Jacob outlines the events surrounding the second coming of Christ, commencing with the pre-tribulation rapture of the church and culminating in the return of Christ to earth at the battle of Armageddon and the inauguration of the Millennial Kingdom.
