Unto the Church at Laodicea (48 min)

PART 7 – Jim Allen finishes his series on the “7 Churches of Asia” with a message on the letter to the church at Laodicea from Revelation 3:14-22.

Unto the Church at Philadelphia (55 min)

PART 6 – Jim Allen takes up the message of the Lord to the church at Philadelphia from Revelation 3:7-13. Philadelphia had “a little strength”. They “kept God’s word” and had “not denied My name”.

Mr Allen contends that Revelation 3:10, which says “I will keep thee from the…

Unto the Church at Sardis (49 min)

Mr Allen challenges his audience with this message…

This is the “false church” where Jezebel held sway, bringing with her deception, seduction and compromise. If Ephesus is passion, and Smyrna is persecution, and Pergamos is patronisation, then Thyatira is pollution. Taking the historical view of the 7 churches, Mr Allen dates Ephesus at 70-170AD, Smyrna at 170-312AD,…

Unto the Church at Pergamos (56 min)

PART 3 – Jim Allen takes up the message of the Lord to the church at Pergamos from Revelation 2:12-17. This is the faltering church that was on a knife edge when the Lord spoke to them.

No longer was persecution a problem: now it was popular to be a “Christian”. This brought all kinds of compromise and mixture…

Unto the Church at Smyrna (48 min)

Jim Allen – Living Contrary to the Culture (25 min)

Jim Allen grew up in Lurgan, Northern Ireland. As a young man raised under the preaching of the gospel he became quite indifferent to it.

Ireland, an older cousin persuaded me to miss the cinema…

Why I Am a Futurist (45 min)

There are 4 main views of the timing of the book of Revelation: preterism, historicism, idealism and futurism.

Where Do The Dead Go? (36 min)
