• The Kingdom of God Part 3

    08 May, 2022

    After some years of peace and prosperity in Israel, Samuel is aged and the people are looking to have a king "like all the nations." His two sons are corrupt and we begin to look at this and something of what that has to say about ourselves as the…

  • The Kingdom of God Part 2

    01 May, 2022

    Samuel heard from God, and brought the word of the Lord to Israel. Israel, formerly full of pride and self-sufficiency, were continually oppressed by the Philistines. Eventually, through brokenness, they came to repentance, and through Samuel's…

  • The Kingdom of God Part 1

    24 April, 2022

    The Kingdom, or Rule, of God, unlike the kingdoms of men, is in essence spiritual, and is marked by the truth of God. Globally, there are a number of indications that the close of the present age is near, when Jesus will return to set up His…

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 7

    17 April, 2022

    Seen briefly in Jacob's life and more fully in the apostle Paul's, we find that spiritual maturity involves serving the Lord in the depths of our total inadequacy, but in the fulness of His sufficiency. There, our sufferings and difficulties are so…

  • His Truth, His Voice

    15 April, 2022

    Jesus came to bear witness to the truth, and has sent us in turn to bear witness to the truth that becomes ours as we hear His voice.

  • Prevailing Prayer

    10 April, 2022

    In this talk we explore something of the motivation behind prevailing prayer as brought to us by the Spirit of the Lord, surprisingly, and unexpectedly, through the words of an unjust judge. Our Father means to meet with us daily as His fervently…

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 6

    03 April, 2022

    As we continue to look at Paul as exemplifying the "spiritual man" we consider the purity of heart that is given to us as an element of the liberty which is ours in the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

  • Fostering the Gospel - Missions

    27 March, 2022

    Ken looks at our calling in these uncertain days, to be salt and light as we bear the gospel of Jesus Christ to a world confused and without hope.

  • Who and What is Man?

    13 March, 2022

    Terry asks the question, Who and what is man? and shows us how mightily precious we are to God, how wonderfully made, how damnably deformed through sin, and how gloriously redeemed through the Lord Jesus Christ by His Redemption, when we repent and…

  • A Smorgasbord of Authority

    06 March, 2022

    The source of authority which governs our lives is searchingly investigated in this message, in the context of our times where there are many competing efforts of a global nature attempting to exert control over our lives.

  • The Lord's Return

    27 February, 2022

    We are taken from the Lord's promise of the fact of His return including the numerous signs and indications of the present church age which will precede that return, to a number of apostolic references indicating the manner of His return and our need…

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 5

    20 February, 2022

    Examining how God, through the service of faithful believers writes Jesus Christ on human hearts, we see something of the "greater works" Jesus says that those who believe in Him will do.

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 4

    13 February, 2022

    Continuing our theme of looking at the way of the cross in the context of the sufferings and troubles associated with life in this fallen world with its anti-christian spirit, we look further at the apostle Paul as he is set forth as the spiritual…

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 3

    06 February, 2022

    As illustrative of a mature believer, also termed the "spiritual man" (1 Cor. 2:15), we look at Paul the apostle and his reflection upon a season of sufferings when he was in Asia, as he writes to encourage the Corinthian believers. We see that…

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 2

    30 January, 2022

    As a prelude to seeing what growth to full age (spiritually) means in the life of the apostle Paul, we look at his time in Ephesus where he spent 3 years during which time the whole of Asia was effectually evangelised with the true apostolic gospel.

  • Sufferings and Consolation Part 1

    23 January, 2022

    Living close to the close of this age, it is incumbent upon us in Christ that we aim to grow to full age, able to discern the good and the evil. This is for our own security in days of rapidly growing ungodliness in both the world and the false…

  • Trust in the Lord

    16 January, 2022

    Ken takes us through the proverb which first instructs us, then warns us, then guides us, and finally promises us the Lord's outcome, all by way of encouraging us to trust Him in everything, especially when we are altogether at that impossible…

  • The Righteousness of God in Christ

    09 January, 2022

    George impresses upon us the extraordinary truth of the fact that in Jesus Christ we participate in the very righteousness of the Lord Jesus Himself in the sight of God.

  • Growth to Full Age

    02 January, 2022

    The writer to the Hebrews says that "strong meat belongs to those who are of full age, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." We look at what that has to do with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and…

  • God With Us

    26 December, 2021

    In the closing years before the exile of Ephraim, and a little later, that of Judah, God promised a sign. That sign was fulfilled in Isaiah's day; it was also fulfilled in the days before Israel finally rejected their promised Messiah; there is even…

  • 69 of Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy

    19 December, 2021

    Terry unfolds for us 69 of the 70 weeks of the prophecy given by the angel Gabriel to Daniel identifying the historical date at which the first coming of the Messiah would occur, including the forecast of His crucifixion.

  • That Which Cannot be Shaken

    12 December, 2021

    In these uncertain days Ken unfolds some of the unshakable things of God: His word, His love, His promises and His faithfulness as all-sufficient to counter much in our world and our lives that can be, and inevitably will be, shaken by God.

  • The Cross and the Tree of Life in Paul

    28 November, 2021

    Following a loose theme of the Cross in connection with our spiritual life as addressed by the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, we consider Saul, the persecutor of the church, encountering Jesus and "feeding" from the Tree…

  • The Cross and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

    21 November, 2021

    We begin to look at the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and how the Lord's ultimate intention is that we should feed from that tree according to the order of God. We see how Jesus of Nazareth knew good and evil as God does and He knew it not…

  • The Cross and the Tree of Life

    14 November, 2021

    We look at Jacob at the brook Jabbok wrestling with the angel and see the angel triumph in bringing Jacob at last to the place where he, Jacob, in abject helplessness triumphs over the angel and wins the blessing: the name Israel. We then see how…

  • The World, The Cross, and the Father's Love

    07 November, 2021

    The apostle Paul locates the Cross of Christ, that is, the eternal spiritual principle of complete dependence upon God, as the thoroughgoing separation between himself in Christ and the world, where by the world he means that spirit of the world that…

  • The Way of the Cross

    31 October, 2021

    Jesus, by referring Nicodemus to the "Son of Man" and the incident concerning the bronze serpent on the pole in the wilderness, opens the way for him to come to grips with heavenly things - in effect, the way of the cross.

  • The Authority of the Cross

    24 October, 2021

    We look at a Centurion who recognised the secret of Jesus' authority, even to the point of having mastery of death's assault, in the truth that He was Himself under authority. This, of course, goes to the heart of the eternal principle of the Cross.

  • Alert to the Times

    10 October, 2021

    As the world grapples with the politicisation of a flu virus across the nations, we in the church of Jesus Christ need to have an understanding of the times in which we live, and to be alert to His voice as the prophetic fulfilment of the eternal…

  • Organic Reality in Christ

    03 October, 2021

    We live in a time when the unseen powers of evil that are opposed to Jesus Christ are increasingly moving to impose a strict form upon His church. We are encouraged to see that the church is a living organism whose form is governed not by rules…
