“Let God Be True!” (28 min)

Joseph Baker (Jackson, MI, USA) preaches on the two human responses to divine truth: “faith”, which says “Let God be true“, and “unbelief”, that “makes God a liar“. When it comes to “then”, when it comes to “sin” and when it comes to “Him” – how will you respond? A helpful message giving clarity on the all-important matter of personal salvation. Reading: 1 John 5:9-11, Rom 3:3-4 (Message preached in Stark Road Gospel Hall 14th Mar 2021)

Are you waiting for a feeling? (19 min)

Many people are not saved because, consciously or unconsciously, they are waiting for some kind of feeling. Until they get this feeling, they think they can’t know they are saved. Peter Orasuk (1948-2005) preaches helpfully on this topic from the story of a man in the Bible who trusted his feelings instead of a spoken word. What are you going to go with: your feelings, or God’s word? Readings: Gen 27:5-10, 18-23, John 5:24.

The Death of the Cross (20 min)

Andrew Steele preaches the gospel from Philippians 2:5-11, and in particular the expression in v8 “the death of the cross”. The preaching of the cross, though foolishness to the world, is central to the gospel of the Bible and it is precious to those who know Christ as their Saviour. The cross showed the extent of man’s hatred; is the exhibition of God’s heart; and is the essence of the believer’s hope. Do you know the Christ of the cross?…

What is Your Spiritual Geography? (24 min)

Peter Orasuk (1948-2005) preaches on the “spiritual geography” of every man or woman “in Adam”.

They have: “Wrath above” them (John 3:36) “Hell beneath” them (Isa 14:9) “Sin behind” them (Num 32:23) “Judgment ahead” of them (Heb 9:27) But, when a person becomes saved, everything changes. All things become new for those who are “in Christ” (2 Cor 15:22). In this message…

On the last night of a series of gospel meetings in Buckinghamshire, England, in 1980, Mr Jim Hutchinson (1920-2011) preached a message on the Philippian jailer who started off asleep, was then awakened, became anxious and was finally assured of his salvation through the person and work of Christ, about which he heard from Paul and Silas in the prison. In over 500 series of gospel meetings, Mr Hutchinson was always the same – steady, simple and earnest in the…

Gospel: “Christ Suffered” (48 min)

John Dennison preaches on 1 Pet 3:18 (“Christ has once suffered for sins the just for the unjust that He might bring us to God”), and emphasises the two words “Christ suffered”.

Surprised by Salvation (33 min)

“Salvation was completely different to how I imagined it would be.” Eugene Higgins explains the way of salvation from the last verse of John’s Gospel chapter 3, which reads: “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (Jn 3.36). He develops his presentation of the gospel around 4 contrasts in this verse: “Whom”, not “How” “Him”, not “you” “Having”,…

You Must Be Born Again (21 min)

Do you say you are born again?…

Where will you spend eternity? (19 min)

This earnest and searching message by Andrew Steele brings the listener back to the only thing that really matters: heaven or hell for eternity?

Where will I be a billion centuries from now? Take time today to find a peaceful undisturbed spot and think deeply and seriously…

John 3:15 and the “Finished Work” (56 min)
