Part 2 – Peter Orasuk’s Life Story (49 min)

Parties, drugs, violence, debt, jail…”then Jesus came and bade his darkness flee”. Peter Orasuk’s (1948-2005) remarkable story of conversion has gone all around the world and been used by God to bless many people. But what happened next? How did life turn out for the former conman and chronic addict from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada? Is God’s salvation real? Does it really change people from the inside out? Does it last? In this recording, from October 1997, Peter tells…

How I Study My Bible (47 min)

A.M.S. Gooding (1915-1999) was a mighty expositor of the Word of God. Considering he left school at 15, never attended University, and was advised by his cousin, Professor David Gooding, not to spend much time with the “original Hebrew and Greek” unless he was going to make a lifetime study of it, one might wonder how on earth he became so knowledgeable and so able. In this message he explains the story of how he learned to study his Bible,…

Egypt to Canaan – Part 2 (57 min)

PART 2 of 7 – John Grant takes up the story of the “manna from heaven”, that came at the 7th of 44 stopping places on the way from Egypt to Canaan.

When your resources dry up, and when you stand in need of help, do you believe that God can meet that need? Mr Grant…

A Warning from History (54 min)

It has been said that “The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.” Looking back over the history of the last 2,000 years of Christian testimony, Ian Jackson sounds an alarm for believers and assemblies in the present day, lest we lose our way by forgetting the lessons of the past. By going back to Scripture and then tracing the providential ways of God throughout history, Ian issues a much needed and eye-opening warning…

The Ecumenical Movement Examined (44 min)

Albert Leckie (1920-1988) examines the ecumenical movement – the attempt to link all churches together in global unity – in the light of holy Scripture. In a solidly biblical, heartfelt and searching message, Mr Leckie proves that while the ecumenical movement has no divine sanction, it has developed according to divine prediction. The Bible predicts a future “harlot church” that will ride upon a political antichrist during the tribulation period. Mr Leckie contends that the current ecumenical movement is the…

Egypt to Canaan – Part 1 (49 min)

PART 1 of 7 – John Grant begins a series of messages on the journey of the children of Israel “from Egypt to Canaan”. After looking generally at a number of journeys in Scripture he introduces his subject. Deliverance from Egypt (the penalty of sin) was followed by the crossing of the Red Sea (the power of sin). Israel’s journey began with a song of redemption but also with an impossible situation into which God put them to prove them…

Joseph the skilful administrator, Joseph the scrupulous steward, Joseph the spiritual brother, and Joseph the sorrowing son.

“Twice Rescued” – Rob Oliver’s story (18 min)

Rob Oliver loved to surf. Catching big waves on the east coast of the USA was a favourite summer activity for Rob and his friends…until one day, when a perfect ‘wave ride’ went inexplicably and terribly wrong, and in Rob’s own words, “I heard a crunch…and suddenly I couldn’t move at all”. Paralysed and submerged in water, Rob realised, “If someone doesn’t come and get me out of this water, I’m going to die”. But this wasn’t the only time…

Hugh Scott – Door Keeping in the House of God (50 min)
