Sermons by Phil Coulson

The Prophetic Days of Scripture (57 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on the prophetic days of Scripture: the day of man, the day of the Lord, the day of Christ and the day of God. He traces the history of the Gentile nations, the nation of Israel and the Church, in the various stages of the dealings of God with mankind from the Tower of Babel to the new heavens and the new earth. (Message preached in Stark Road Gospel Hall, Livonia, MI, USA, 2nd June 2022)

The Drama of Redemption (24 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on the great “drama of redemption” whereby God purposes to undo the works of Satan (in causing the fall through the first Adam’s sin in Eden), by bringing in redemption and restoration through the last Adam, the Man Christ Jesus. Reading: Heb 2:1-4. (Message preached at the Garnavillo Conference, Iowa, USA, 2022)

The Book of the Generation of Jesus Christ (58 min)

PART 2 – Phil Coulson looks at the “book of the generation of Jesus Christ”. The New Testament begins with a long list of names – a genealogy – which is seldom addressed in ministry. Mr Coulson expounds the topic to profit. Reading: Matt 1:1-17 (Preached in Edmonton, Canada, 2019).

The Book of the Generations of Adam (51 min)

PART 1 – Phil Coulson takes a broad sweeping look at the course of history from Adam to Christ, taking a particular interest in the early chapters of Genesis and the “generations of Adam”. A thought provoking message. Reading: Gen 5:1-3, Matt 1:1 (Preached in Edmonton, Canada, 2019).

The Word Became Flesh (44 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on the incarnation of Christ, and the profound stoop of the eternal Son of God in becoming flesh. Mr Coulson addresses the question of whether the Lord took anything from Mary and what the Bible means when it says of Christ “a body hast Thou prepared Me”. Readings: John 1:14, Phil 2:5-8, Heb 10:5-7, Eph 4:9-10, Psa 139:1-16. (Messages preached in Kingsmoss, Northern Ireland)

It Was Dark, and Jesus Had Not Come to Them (39 min)

Phil Coulson speaks on half a verse in John’s gospel (John 6:17b) – “It was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them”. Why does the Lord allow us to go through dark times? Why, when we can’t see the right way – when we feel lost – does He sometimes leave us alone and not come to us? Why do some believers who don’t seem very keen in spiritual matters seem to fare all right, while others who…

What is “the World”? (48 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on the neglected subject of “the world” and the believer’s relation to it. After providing some technical information about the various words used in the New Testament for “world”, Phil deals with 4 items. The believer is “out of the world” in salvation; “in the world” in situation; “not of the world” in sanctification, and “into the world” in service. A helpful, practical and challenging word of ministry. Readings: John 17:4-5, Eph 2:1-2, Rev 12:7-9. (Message preached…

Sanctification and Social Media (44 min)

Phil Coulson preaches from Gal 1:5 on the purpose of Christ giving Himself for us – “to deliver us from this present evil age”. In other words, we were saved primarily to be set apart to “Himself” from the world and its ways. God’s will for us is sanctification/holiness – “Be ye holy, for I am holy”. Mr Coulson then applies this principle to the issue of screen time, social media and the online distractions and addictions of the digital…

Preaching the Gospel (34 min)

Phil Coulson preaches a weighty message from Acts 28 on the dignity of public preaching and the purity of the message of the gospel. He passes comment on the use of PowerPoint in gospel preaching (Message preached in Bicester, Easter 5th April 2010)

The Unchanging Gospel (27 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on the unchanging gospel. He traces (in Acts) the way the apostles always preached the same message but adapted it to different audiences, without ever lowering the gospel by the use of drama (Message preached in Bicester, Easter 5th April 2010)

Lessons from John Chapter 1 (26 min)

Phil Coulson preaches from John 1 on unity among believers, devotion to Christ, humility and the importance of service in the local assembly (Message preached at Bicester, Easter 17th April 2006)

Serving God in a Busy, Demanding World (36 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on serving the Lord in a busy world where our heavy life commitments often leave us with little time for the things of the Lord. How are we to navigate the difficult choices in the work place, and all the demands of a mortgage and other financial commitments, so that we can still be useful to the Lord? Reading: Mark 1:16-20 (Message preached 17th April 2006)
