God Will Keep His Promises to Israel (and to you) (43 min)

What is the greatest example in the Bible of God keeping a promise? Working from Ezekiel Ch 20, this sermon sets out to prove that God’s ancient promise to Abraham of a nation and a land “for an everlasting possession” has still to be fulfilled, and will be so when Christ returns and sets up His millennial Kingdom. If God does not keep that promise, how can you be sure He will keep His New Covenant promises of salvation and…

Jonathan Procopio preaches on a number of the “shouts” of the Lord Jesus. “If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink”…”Lazarus come forth”…”It is finished.” But there’s going to be a “last shout”, the shout the world won’t hear.

From…

The Mark of the Beast (41 min)

Why will there be a mark of the beast? He suggests it is a literal visible mark…

PART 4 – Dispensationalism and the Gospel – Audio & Video (29 min)

PART 3 – Dispensationalism and the Church – Audio & Video (58 min)

The Practical Kingdom Parables (37 min)

PART 5 – David Gilliland considers the parable of the nobleman from Luke 19:11-27. This key parable reveals that though the kingdom was not restored to Israel at the time of Christ’s first coming, it most certainly will be at His second. In the mean time, believers are to “occupy” until He returns. Faithfulness in little things during the time of the King’s rejection and absence will lead to larger responsibilities being given when the kingdom is inaugurated. What kingdom…

The Glorious Kingdom Promises (60 min)

PART 4 – David Gilliland considers the programme of God’s kingdom from the captivity in Babylon through to the second coming of Christ. God sent prophets – Isaiah to Malachi – to sustain and encourage His people in dark days. Despite the disaster of the captivity and the tragedy of the cross, God’s original plan to have a kingdom headquartered in Jerusalem with the son of David on the throne of the Lord has not been abandoned. The present postponement…

The Historical Kingdom Picture (47 min)

PART 3 – In a sweeping address that covers over 1,500 years of history, David Gilliland traces the course of God’s dealings on the earth from the tower of Babel all the way through to the captivity in Babylon. The Kings of “this world” (Nimrod, Pharoah, Nebuchadnezzar etc.) have always opposed God’s rule, but in the nation of Israel, in particular under the rule of Solomon, God gave a preview of what the Kingdom of Christ will eventually look like…

The Original Kingdom Pattern (30 min)

PART 2 – From Genesis Chs 1-3, David Gilliland explains that at the beginning God delegated rule over creation to Adam, who was crowned with glory and honour and given dominion over God’s works. This was the “original kingdom pattern”. All of this came under subtle attack from Satan. (Due to a recording malfunction, 15 minutes is missing at the 28.10 mark. At that point, Mr Gilliland outlined the results of the fall, and how those results will be reversed…

The Ultimate Kingdom Psalm (58 min)

PART 1 – David Gilliland introduces his series of 5 messages on “the kingdom of God in human history” with a look at Psalm 145, which he calls the ultimate kingdom psalm. The 7+1 psalms of King David bunched together from Psalm 138 to 145 Mr Gilliland likens to the 7 future years of tribulation, that give way to the great day of Christ’s millennial glory. This message is full of fascinating insights into the mathematical structure of the Psalter…

Where Do The Dead Go? (36 min)

Michael Penfold takes up the subject of man’s future state under three headings: Where do people go at death? Where did Christ go at death? What is the future resurrection programme for the Church, Israel and the “wicked dead”? He deals with a number of false ideas such as annihilation, reincarnation, purgatory, soul-sleep and universalism and refutes them all from scripture. He also critiques the two-compartment theory. A wide ranging message that includes a look at the first and second…

Pre, Post or A-Millennialism? (45 min)

Michael Penfold preaches on the subject of the Millennium, the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth in His Kingdom.

He explains the weaknesses of the a-millennial and post-millennial views and argues in favour of a pre-millennial view of prophecy (Message…

The Rapture – Pre, Mid or Post-Tribulation? (39 min)

Mervyn Hall looks at the subject of the rapture of the Church and asks will it be before, in the middle or at the end of Daniel’s 70th week, that period sometimes called “the 7-year tribulation”? Mervyn works his way through Ch 4 and Ch 5 of 1st Thessalonians and looks at the timing, the terminology and the teaching connected with this event and concludes that Scripture teaches a “pre-tribulation rapture”. (Message preached 8th Nov 2015)

Is the Lord’s Day the Christian Sabbath? (40 min)

Although aware that they are “not under law”, the question of whether or not to keep the Sabbath is an issue that still poses problems for many believers. Mervyn Hall addresses this problem by tracing Paul’s argument though Colossians Ch 2, showing that we are not legally bound to keep the Sabbath, nor are we required to treat the Lord’s Day as the “Christian Sabbath”. However, he urges caution against treating the Lord’s Day as any other day, by drawing…

What is the Believer’s Rule of Life? (43 min)

Michael Penfold preaches on the question, “What is the believer’s ‘rule of life’?” Believers today are “under grace”, not “under law”. That is to say, the Mosaic law, in all its aspects – ceremonial, civil and moral – has no connection with Christians in the Church age. They are neither under the law for justification nor for sanctification. Are believers then “lawless”? Is dispensationalism antinomian? Does “grace” mean Christians are free to do what they please? These and other related…

What is the Difference Between Israel and the Church? (41 min)

Dan Rudge speaks on a foundational issue in the interpretation of Scripture; that of the difference between Israel and the Church. The basic rule expounded is that when the Bible speaks of Israel it always means Israel. Israel and the Church are different. One is not a replacement of the other; nor is one an expansion of the other. Both Replacement theology and Covenant [Reformed] theology’s views on the subject of ‘Israel and the Church’ are exposed as dangerously awry.…

An Overview of Bible Covenants (43 min)

Mervyn Hall gives a helpful overview of the Covenants of the Bible. He lists five: Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic and Messianic (New). He explains that these Covenants are God’s programme to restore everything that was lost in the fall. The culmination of God’s Covenant programme will be seen in “the Millennium”, the 1,000 year reign of Christ in a literal kingdom on earth. The Dispensational view of the Covenants differs greatly from the Reformed “Covenant Theology” view, making this a…

The Principles of Biblical Hermeneutics (42 min)

Laying a foundation for a series of messages on dispensational truth, Mervyn Hall preaches on the basic principles of Biblical interpretation. How should the Bible be approached and studied? To rightly divide the word (2 Tim 2:15) – to cut a straight course through Scripture – what principles should guide us? Mervyn outlines 5: the synthesis principle; the historical principle; the literal principle; the grammatical principle and the practical principle (Message preached 6th Sept 2015)
