Atonement – “Received” not “Achieved” (25 min)

David Gilliland preaches the gospel on the subject of “the atonement” – its meaning, cost, reception, effect and urgency of atonement. The blessings from Christ’s atonement are received not achieved: obtained not attained. Reading Rom 5:6-11 (Preached in Northern Ireland).

“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?…

“If Only I Could Feel Saved” (6 min)

Norman Crawford (1927-2013), an evangelist and Bible teacher with decades of experience in dealing with souls, tackles an issue that troubles a lot of people: “How can I know for sure that I am really saved?” They set about trying to believe, and trying to “feel saved” by examining this experience and that experience for assurance, but to no avail. None of this is the basis of true Biblical assurance. So, what is? Mr Crawford explains simply and powerfully how…

Every Mouth Stopped (52 min)

In a powerful gospel meeting, Peter Orasuk opens by describing the court scene in the epistle to the Romans that culminates in “every mouth being stopped” as the sentence of condemnation rings out.

What is Your Spiritual Geography? (24 min)

Peter Orasuk (1948-2005) preaches on the “spiritual geography” of every man or woman “in Adam”. The following 4 things describe the spiritual position of human beings in their natural state outside of Christ. 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…

Murray then preached on the man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho (Lu 10:30-36) as a picture of someone on the broad road to destruction. Peter Orasuk followed with a mighty message…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – The Scriptures (48 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued back in the Milburn Centre (pictured above), on the Monday of week 18 (22nd May 2000) it was announced that “this is the last week”; the meetings will conclude on Sunday 28th May. Murray McCandless preached on “the Scriptures”. The unbreakable, unbendable, undeniable Scriptures are also “understandable”. Some of you have known them since childhood, but have you obeyed the gospel they contain? (Readings: 2 Tim 3:15, John 10:35, 5:39, 1 Cor 15:3-3). Peter Orasuk continued…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – Conscience (48 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued in the Tent, on the Thursday of week 17 (18th May 2000) Murray McCandless preached from John 8:3-12 on the subject of “conscience” under 4 headings: 1. convicted by conscience, 2. controlled by conscience, 3. condemned by conscience, and finally 4. a conscience cleared. Peter Orasuk followed with a mighty word on the value of a soul. He used three examples of people who “sold their souls” cheaply: Esau for pleasure, Judas for possessions, and Pilate…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – God’s Standard (44 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued, a Gospel Tent had to be erected on Sidney Scott’s land because the Community Centre was not available for three weeks.

On the Tuesday of week 17 (16th May 2000), under the canvas, Murray McCandless preached on “God’s standard” from Romans 3:10-23. God is a holy God of inflexible righteousness.

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – Three Musts (43 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued, on the Wednesday of week 13 (19th April 2000) Peter Orasuk preached on the three “musts” in John Ch 3. Nicodemus was first of all shocked, then silenced (because he didn’t know how to be born again), and finally saved. Murray McCandless followed with a striking message marked by unusual power and pathos based on Luke 13:29 “They shall come from the East, and from the West, and from the North, and from the South.”…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – The Cup (40 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued, on the Monday of week 12 (Mon 10th April 2000) Murray McCandless preached an unusal but solemn message on Bible cups. A cup being filled (Gen 15:16); a cup over-filled (Luke 3:18-20) and a cup emptied (John 18:11, 19:29-30). You are filing a cup every day you live without Christ – a cup that will overflow one day and bring judgment. Look at the lives of Belshazzar, Saul, Herod, Judas and Pilate and remember: there’s…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – When, Where and How (45 min)

With blessing in weeks 10 and 11, the Coleraine meetings were extended. On Sunday 9th April 2000, at the start of week 12, Peter Orasuk read about the “second death” and the “second birth” (Rev 20:11-15, John 3:3-7). You must have the second birth to avoid the second death. So: when, where and how were you born again? Peter told with warmth and fondness of the spot in house of Albert Ramsay in Prince Edward Island where he was saved.…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – “The Way of Cain” (48 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued, the evangelist Peter Orasuk from Prince Edward Island, Canada, arrived in late Feb 2000 to join Murray McCandless and help in the meetings.

On Tuesday 15th Feb 2000, as te 4th week of the Coleraine meetings continued, Murray McCandless preached on “the value of a soul” from Mark 8:36-27. In light of the fact that you will live forever either in heaven or hell, what is your soul worth? What would you be willing to risk losing it for? Mr McCandless looked at a number of people in the Bible who played the fool and lost their souls, like Abner and Esau. But…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – “I am the Door” (41 min)

On Sunday 13th Feb 2000, as the Coleraine meetings commended their 4th week, Murray McCandless preached on the great gospel text “I am the door, by Me is any man enter in, he shall be saved” (John 10:9). Hanging on the wall behind the pulpit throughout this series of meeting was the “Two Roads Chart”. There’s only one door and we’re all born outside of it! To be saved you must enter the door. When did you enter the door?…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – The Great Supper (37 min)

As the Coleraine meetings continued in their second week, on Tuesday 1st Feb 2000 Murray McCandless preached on “the great supper” from Luke 14:16-24. He drew simple yet powerful lessons from the fact that the supper of which the Lord spoke had been financed by another, that the banqueting house was going to be filled, and that acceptance of the invitation to the supper had to come first, above every other consideration. He applies this to the “gospel supper” and…

Coleraine 20th Anniversary – The Prodigal Son (38 min)

2020 was the 20th anniversary year of a much blessed series of gospel meetings in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, with Canadian evangelists Murray McCandless and Peter Orasuk.

Jim Hutchinson – What Must I Do to Be Saved? (30 min)

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…

“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).

3 Gospel Object Lessons from Luke 13 (33 min)

Andrew Steele preaches from Luke Ch 13 on three object lessons that illustrate gospel truth. A tower that collapsed (“Except you repent you will all likewise perish”); a door that closed (Don’t be left outside); and a hen that called (“I would…but you would not”). The Lord Jesus is seen as the “prince of preachers” in this powerful chapter of the Bible (Message preached in Bicester on 6th July 2019)

“Salvator Mundi” (48 min)

Do you say you are born again?…

Hudson Taylor – “The Finished Work of Christ” (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on “God’s love for His enemies” from Rom 5:6-10. When Christ came to earth He was “hated without a cause”, rejected and slain.

Yet, God loved us even when we were enemies! Mr Higgins uses the story of Jim Elliot as the…

Isaac Watts – The Wondrous Cross (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches about the death of Christ at “the wondrous cross” – an event which provided both the greatest revelation of our ruin as sinners, and the strongest repudiation of our own righteous efforts to save ourselves.
