David Nathan, Chris Lawson, Roger Oakland and Paul M. Williams answer questions from those attending the Sanctuary Conference 2016
Roger closes out the Sanctuary Conference with a very timely and sober teaching. By analysing current trends within modern evangelicalism, Roger provides evidence that we are indeed living in the last days. Not only does Roger warn of the current danger facing the Church but he also provides a strategy whereby the Church might stand and gain ground in the midst of apostasy.
In this session, David Nathan passionately admonishes and warns the body of Christ in The United Kingdom of the danger of being divisive over secondary issues firmly stating: “Unless groups of people like yourselves begin to unite one with another, there is no hope for the church in this country… there is no hope because if there’s no unity in the body of Christ do you think God is going to be amongst you?” It is time for the church to return to her first love and arise in the power of The Living God.
As a believer are you carrying unforgiveness and bitterness in your heart? In this session, David Nathan expounds Matthew chapter 18 verse 1. We MUST choose to forgive all offences in the power, strength and grace of God.
In this teaching session, Chris Lawson fervently warns the Church of “potentially dangerous and harmful spiritual practices”. Many unsuspecting Christians are being deceived through various books and authors who have employed new age occult principles whilst cloaking them in Christian terminology.
Sarah Young is the author of the popular and widespread contemporary “Christian” devotional entitled “Jesus Calling”. In this teaching session, Chris Lawson gives an “extensive refutation” of the book and its author, thoroughly demonstrating by solid documentation, that this book substantiates another Jesus, another Gospel and another Spirit.
Paul brings a very serious and sobering Word, calling the Bride of Christ to make herself ready for her husband!! There are many titles for Christ – Lord, Saviour, King, Redeemer – yet there is one title that is often lost in our understanding of who Christ is, namely Christ my Husband!! Marriage in the West is being decimated! As the sanctity and fidelity of matrimony is being lost, so too is the Church’s perception of this holy union between them and the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. Jesus is coming back for a bride unspotted by the world, a wife who has made herself ready!! Will you be found a faithful bride upon His soon return?
The Apostle Paul continues to pour out his heart and affection for his countrymen, his kinsmen according to the flesh. Well noting their zeal for God, Paul points out the sad reality that their zeal is not according to knowledge. Seeking to establish their own righteousness via the merits of the law, they have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God which come by faith in Jesus Christ.
In absolute simplicity and beauty, Paul lays out for his brethren the means by which they might be saved by faith, confessing with one’s mouth the Lord Jesus and believing in one’s heart that God raised Him from the dead for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord in sincerity and truth shall be saved!! In an age where the gospel is so misunderstood, this sermon comes as a refreshing reminder of exactly what a man must do to be saved!!
