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. Looked at historically, he sees Laodicea as a picture of the charismatic movement. Practically he sees a wealthy glamorous church that was not aware of its real spiritual condition of poverty. Mr Allen works his way through the Lord’s message to this church sentence by sentence and makes challenging applications. (Message preached…

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”. They are warned “Let no man take thy crown”. So, the Lord gives information, instruction and admonition, and there’s a lot for us to learn from the message to this church. Mr Allen contends that Revelation 3:10, which says “I will keep thee from the…

Unto the Church at Sardis (49 min)

PART 5 – Jim Allen takes up the message of the Lord to the church at Sardis from Revelation 3:1-6. Sardians generally were a proud people. Proud of their history and prowess. But the local assembly in that town had very little that the Lord could commend. In fact, the Lord says they had a “name to live but are dead”. In other words, they had a reputation, but that was it. Mr Allen challenges his audience with this message…

Unto the Church at Thyatira (48 min)

PART 4 – Jim Allen takes up the message of the Lord to the church at Thyatira from Revelation 2:18-29. Mr Allen brings out 4 lessons: historical, local, prophetic and practical. 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. He lines up the details of this church with the period in history after 312AD when the Emperor Constantine embraced Christianity. 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)

PART 2 – Jim Allen takes up the message of the Lord to the church at Smyrna from Revelation 2:8-11. This is the “suffering church” of the 7, recorded by John the apostle on the Isle of PAtmos (pictured above). Mr Allen’s remarks centre around 4 things: Christ’s character – “He lives”. Christ’s consolation – “He knows”. Christ’s command – “He speaks”. Christ’s challenge – “He opens their understanding. (Message preached in Wallingford, Nov 2004)

Unto the Church at Ephesus (60 min)

PART 1 – Jim Allen begins a series on the 7 Churches of Asia (Revelation Chs 2-3) with a 24 minute introduction, before looking in detail at the first of the 7 churches, namely Ephesus.

John the apostle is on the island of Patmos in Greece (pictured above) and 7 letters are given to him by…

Sign No 8 – The Catch of Fish (38 min)

PART 9 – John Salisbury preaches on the 8th sign in John’s gospel – the miraculous catch of 153 fish.

He gives an explanation for the counting of the 153 fish, as well as discussing the interplay between two Greek verbs for love (agapao and phileo) in…

Sign No 7 – Raising of Lazarus (44 min)

PART 8 – Gordon Stewart preaches on the 7th sign in John’s gospel – the raising of Lazarus from the dead. This was the pivotal climactic sign that led quickly to the Lord’s crucifixion. After some helpful introductory remarks about the “delays of Christ” in Scripture, Gordon outlines 7 lessons from John Ch 11 in connection with this mighty sign: about Christ’s glory, His promise, His sympathy, His troubled soul, His prayer, His shout of authority, and His worthiness of…

Sign No 6 – The Blind Man (39 min)

PART 7 – Peter Scarsbrook preaches on the 6th sign in John’s gospel; the giving of sight to the blind man at the Pool of Siloam in Ch 9. Why did the Lord deal differently with this man, compared to how He dealt with Bartimaeus? Why was he sent to the pool of Siloam, not the pool of Bethesda? After answering these two related questions, Peter looks at a number of theological and practical issues thrown up by this remarkable…

Sign No 5 – The Storm on the Lake (39 min)

PART 6 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 5th sign in John’s gospel, the calming of the storm on the lake (and the walking on the water), from John Ch 6. After an introduction about how John in his first 12 chapters interweaves the “words” and the “works” of the Son, Michael looks at how the 5th sign proves that Jesus is the Son of God. He also explains how God’s dispensational dealings with the nation of Israel are seen…

Sign No 3 – The Lame Man at the Pool (49 min)

PART 4 – Dan Rudge preaches on the third sign in John’s gospel, the healing of the lame man at the pool of Bethesda on the Sabbath day. Dan looks at this sign historically, thematically, dispensationally and practically. The man is a picture of Israel, in his 38 years of weakness and his expressions of unbelief. The act of the Lord in healing the man on the Sabbath was hugely significant and led to the persecution of the Lord and…

Sign No 2 – The Nobleman’s Son (37 min)

PART 3 – David West preaches on the second sign in John’s gospel, the “healing at a distance” of the nobleman’s son (4:43-54). After some introductory remarks about the fact that the 8 signs in John’s gospel are written as an inversion of 4 pairs, David points out the main features of the sign. David believes 1. the nobleman was a Gentile, and 2. all Gentiles are healed at a distance (Centurion’s servant, Syrophenician’s daughter etc.). The sign is a…

Sign No 1 – Water into Wine (31 min)

PART 2 – Jim Flanigan preaches on the first sign that the Lord Jesus performed – turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee – a sign that “manifested the Lord’s glory”. This and the signs that follow in the gospel of John give proof to the Lord’s claim to the the Son of God from heaven and were written that people might believe.

The 8 Signs in John’s Gospel – Introduction (45 min)

PART 1 – Mervyn Hall introduces the 8 signs in John’s gospel by asking three questions: “What is a sign?”, “What are the signs in John?”, and “What is the purpose of the signs in John?” He works through the signs giving their significance and both their evidential and evangelistic purpose as part of John’s great intention: “These things are written that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God and that believing you might have…

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 4 (47 min)

Dan Rudge expounds the last chapter of 2nd Timothy in 4 divisions: v1-5 – the Charge of the Apostle, v6-8 – the Course of the Athlete, v9-18 – the Concern of the Prisoner, and v19-22 – the Companions of the Servant. Dan emphasises the command to Timothy to “preach the word” and highlights the various reasons why Paul gives him this solemn charge – made all the more significant and striking in that this chapter forms the very last written…

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 3 (38 min)

After reading 2 Tim 3:1-17, 2 Pet 3:1-4 and Jude 1:3-4, 17-39, Tom West preaches on 2 Timothy Ch 3 under three divisions: v1-9 The False Christian, v10-12 The Faithful Christian, v13-17 The Furnished Christian. Tom majors on the danger of false doctrine in the last days and exposes the character, conduct and conclusion of the “evil men and seducers” who will grow worse and worse until the Lord’s return – while exhorting us to give heed to the inspired…

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 2 (42 min)

Peter Scarsbrook works through 2 Timothy Ch 2 and brings out a list of pictures and portraits from the chapter as follows: a Steward, a Soldier, a Sportsman, a Sower, a Student, Stumblingblocks and a Servant.

Exposition of 2 Timothy Ch 1 (46 min)

John Salisbury expounds 2 Timothy Ch 1. After dividing up and introducing the whole epistle, John builds his remarks on Chapter 1 around three mentions of the word “ashamed”. Neither Timothy (v8), Paul (v12) nor Onesiphorus (v16) are ashamed, and the reasons why are given according to the context. In the closing section of the message a helpful 7-point outline of Onesiphorus is given (Message preached 16th May 2019)

Exposition of 1 Timothy Ch 6 (42 min)

Michael Penfold expounds 1 Timothy Ch 6 in which the Ephesian false teachers are condemned, and Timothy, the man of God, is charged – to “keep the commandment” and “guard the deposit”. The apostle Paul exposes those who view godliness as a way to make money and gives general warnings against covetousness. This issue is highly relevant in our day when the “prosperity gospel” is being promoted by false teachers like T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen and Brian Houston…
