When the Lord calls twice – Chris Beckingham

W

So Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. 2 Then God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and said, “Jacob, Jacob!” And he said, “Here I am.” 3 So He said, “I am God, the God of your father; do not fear to go down to Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there. 4 I will go down with you to Egypt...

Lord, what do you think about this?

Who Was There When Jesus Died? This was my question as I watched all the pageantry surrounding the death of the Queen.  The answer came back straight away – Isaiah 53 – the prophecy of the suffering of Messiah: ‘He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.’ This led me to give a talk comparing how people reacted to the death of the Queen with the death of Jesus...

How we grow and mature in our faith – Trevor Stewart-Sweet

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of...

Let’s just have a word of prayer as we come to the Word of God, praise God. Lord, we thank you for your Word. We thank you for the truth of your Word. We pray that you bless the preaching of your Word and build us up in our faith. In Jesus name, amen. I, like most of you, have been watching the television, looking at the news and seeing all the pictures of the Queen lying-in-state and all...

Israel’s foundations

I

Coming back to the idea of foundations. What were the foundations of Israel? What was this Psalm about? In the Lord I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”? 2 For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do? 4 The...

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.Genesis 1.1-2 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires...

Who am I? – Jay Seegert

I would not want to be in his shoes when he faces his Creator. I pray for the guy. It’s not that he’s not smart enough, he needs that different Starting Point, the different foundation to interpret those facts. He doesn’t need someone screaming at him or trying to win an argument, he needs one, someone to share Jesus with him, and to be praying for him. How do we know the Bible...

Britain’s foundations

B

But we don’t live in Israel, we live in Britain. So, what about Britain? How does it apply to us? Now, you’d say that many people think of England and Britain as a Christian country. Is it a Christian country? ‘Yes and No’. Fundamentally, this is a country which has been heavily influenced by Christianity. You can’t deny that. In the 1970s, they did a survey and found that 70%...

How do we know the Bible is the inspired Word of God? – Jay Seegert

H

No matter who you are, you must start somewhere with your beliefs. It’s impossible not to start somewhere. Christians start with the belief that God exists, and the Bible is His Word. And we use that starting point to define everything else. What science and logic are. Ethics, morality, philosophy, history, all those things, are defined by our starting point. The Starting Point Project...

The resurrection in Samuel and Isaiah

T

This morning I was speaking about the Gospel from the resurrection from John’s point of view and one of the things we saw is that Jesus rose from the dead and that He was seen first of all by the women who were much more faithful and zealous to seek the Lord at this time in the morning. And I suggested that the men, the disciples, had actually fled, most likely to Bethany, when Jesus was...
