Jim Burnett – The House of God (41 min)

Jim Burnett – The House of God (41 min)

Jim Burnett (1935-2005) was born and brought up in Fife, Scotland. Sent to Egypt on national service, he met a young man who witnessed to him and soon after took him to his first gospel meeting. Jim sat with 200 other servicemen and listened to the gospel. He was saved that very evening. Back in Scotland, Jim was baptised and received into fellowship with the believers in Hospital Hill Gospel Hall in Dunfermline. Jim went on to become a mighty minister of the Word, and we enjoyed having him in Bicester many years ago. He was a tall, warm-hearted brother, always fresh in worship and ministry. On the platform he was an exhorter who spoke with compassion and earnestness. In this message he preaches on “the house of God” from the Old Testament and takes lessons from it that speak to our privileges and responsibilities in local assembly testimony today. The house of God in the days of David had “gates” (something to be gained), “thrones” (something to be governed) and “walls” (something to be guarded). Readings: Neh 7:1-3, Josh 6:26, 1 Kings 16:33-34, Psa 122:1-9 (Message preached in Scotland in 1980)
