Acts 17:16-32

We are living in a post-modern generation where a new breed of thinking has invaded the imaginations of men's hearts and minds.  Once upon a time, there existed something called objective truth which in turn set the parameters for objective morality.  God was that objective truth and His Holy Word the moral standard which was brought to bear upon the consciences of men.  God the creator dictated to man the created, what was right and what was wrong and the consciences of men bore testimony and approval.  But now, we are seeing an altogether different scenario taking shape before our eyes, where man is fast becoming answerable to no one.  science, we’re told has now explained away God and if there is no God and man is just an advanced ape with no God-given conscience, then it naturally follows that man is free on his upward journey of evolution to define his own truth and in turn his own morality without the baggage of accountability. 

The call goes out in this sermon without reservation; REPENT!!  God is one day going to judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom he hath appointed.  In that day the secrets of men’s hearts will be laid bare and no stone will be left unturned.  Justice cries aloud to have its fill and unrighteousness will not be left unpunished but mercy cries louder, DO NOT GIVE THEM WHAT THEY DESERVE!!  Hell opens wide its mouth to receive you but the arms of God are open even wider to receive you if you are willing to first repent and call upon the name of the Lord Jesus that you might be saved!! What will you do?

Revelation 2:1-7

Ephesus was a city of tremendous importance and was by far the greatest city in Asia.  Commercially it was unrivalled and was the wealthiest being surpassed by very few cities of that day.  Being situated at the mouth of an important river, Ephesus commanded the trade of that region and was dubbed “The Vanity Fair of the Ancient World”.  Politically, it too was a city of great importance earning for itself the name “Supreme Metropolis of Asia”, and of course religiously, it held a place of incredible prominence being the centre of the worship of Artemis aka Diana and the temple situated in that city was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.  To this city dared to come the Gospel of Jesus Christ!!

Around the year AD 52, a Church in Ephesus was founded and a decade later, around the year AD 62, Paul wrote his epistle to this same Church.  In the passing of some three plus decades Jesus Christ now addresses this Church and though He had much good to commend them for; their labour and patience in exposing false doctrine and rooting out false teachers, He nonetheless had something against them, namely that they had left their first love!!

Revelation 1:9-20

The four Gospel accounts record for us the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ.  Mention is made of His birth and great detail is given to his ministry of some 3½ years, culminating in His death, burial and resurrection.  Following His resurrection, Jesus showed Himself alive for 40 days by many infallible proofs being seen of the Apostles and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom until the time in which He was taken up to heaven.

We have very little recorded in the New Testament of the words of Jesus Christ following His ascension.  However, it’s not until we come to the final book in the Bible that we have a detailed description of the risen ascended Son of God and the words spoken by Him to His Churches.  This therefore if for no other reason, makes the Book of Revelation a very unique book in the Bible.  In this teaching, we examine this first vision of John who beholds the risen, ascended Christ!

Revelation 1:4-8

What a greeting, packed with plenty of punch and pace!!  The Apostle John, writing by the Spirit of God brings a glorious triune greeting to the Seven Churches from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!  Particular emphasis is laid upon the wonderful person of the Son. What titles are given Him, “the faithful witness”, “the first begotten of the dead” and “the prince of the kings of the earth”.

In this teaching, we expound these beautiful titles before turning to the doxology given by John.  In every which way, there is no escaping it, this teaching brings to light the very glory and the honour of our blessed Saviour, the Lord of lords and the King of kings!!

Revelation 1:1-3

In this first teaching part, we set the scene by giving an introduction.  In an age where so many have closed this book of Revelation and dismissed it as irrelevant and too hard to understand; it is with the utmost privilege that we embark on this journey, studying, and teaching through this amazing book.  For what reason was this Revelation given by God?  “…to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass” (Rev. 1:1).  For the one willing to read, hear and obey the words of this prophecy, there is the assurance of a promised blessing!!  May God help us to remain faithful to His Word!

Acts 16:13-34

Paul and Silas were beaten with rods and thrown in prison. Even at the midnight hour they are praying and singing praises to the LORD, when SUDDENLY the LORD comes and shakes the prison with an earthquake! Don’t be absent when you ought to be expecting. Don’t be playing when you ought to be praying. Don’t be sighing when you ought to be singing. And don’t be silent when you ought to be speaking. Get ready for GOD to come SUDDENLY!

James 1:5-8

Faith that does not waiver has at least 5 characteristics for sure, F-A-I-T-H. F-FOCUS on the faithfulness of GOD. Let us fix our eyes on JESUS! A-ACTIVE OBEDIENCE. Faith without works/obedience is dead! I-INTIMACY with GOD. Do you know HIM or just know about HIM? T-TENACITY. Faith that will not waiver is tenacious in prayer! H-HEARING. Without the WORD of GOD all we have is presumption. But standing on the promises of God we shall not waiver!

Acts 27

You are called to be God’s provision to others in the storm. We are called to STAND, SERVE, SPEAK, and SUPPLICATE in the midst of the storm! The apostle Paul did just that, and 276 shipwrecked prisoners were saved from perishing. We are called to do the same in the coming storm!

John 12:20-33

The prayer for every occasion is, FATHER GLORIFY THY NAME! Here is a prayer we should always pray. GOD has answered this prayer and will answer it again. This is a call to not only pray the prayer, but to follow JESUS the way of the cross so that HE can answer the prayer in you! The way of the cross is the way of love! Love never seeks its own and without love we are just sounding brass and tinkling cymbals!

Isaiah 42:3

A message on personal revival and restoration. The LORD longs to breathe upon the smoking flax, fanning it into flame! But, this requires absolute surrender! Or maybe you are a bruised reed? The LORD is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The LORD is moved with compassion for HIS people and will restore us. But, we must get honest, repent of all sin, and resolve to trust the LORD come what may.
