Every Man Perfect #1



When a nation loses its way spiritually, says John Alley, other things slide also. This statement was in response to a recent report that the standards of students’ results in learning have become drastically lower than previously. However, says John, by our prayers the Lord turns all things around to show His glory. John goes on to state that everything goo din this world can be traced back to the gospel – medal breakthroughs, care for the aged and underprivileged and great inventions all had their beginnings in Christianity. However, when an atheistic society gets hold of these good things and twists them to an extreme position, corruption occurs. John refers to Colossians 1:28, where reference is made to “every man perfect”, explaining that according to Scripture we all should strive to be perfect as God is perfect. John emphasizes the need for strong men in leadership in the Church. We must be very prayerful, says John, in these times when there is an agenda afoot to twist and distort that which God meant for good.

The Cost of the Gospel



When the gospel comes to us it challenges us to change, but not everyone is challenged the same way. Living in a society which feels entitled, the gospel of Christ challenges that. Beginning with the story of Doug, a travelling evangelist from the UK, John Alley discusses the rewards and the trials of living for Christ. John Alley shows in scripture a number of examples of people who responded in various ways to the call of the gospel as it affected them. How will you respond to what Christ asks of you?

The Big Invisible Kingdom



David Alley speaks of the marvelous sign of God’s great love and blessing to all men that the Christmas season is, with all of the music and public display of the nativity. And yet, those who do not believe do not see the truth which is so rich in meaning for all people. David reads for Isaiah, Luke, and Matthew as well as 1 Corinthians which tells us that we are living in the days of the fulfillment of the ages. The Kingdom of God will never end, and yet it is invisible to those who do not look for it. David exhorts us to want and to seek more of the love and revelation of God. We can, David says, grow year by year in appreciation of the goodness of God. God has given us the greatest gift of all, says David, therefore it is fitting that we give Him all that we have – our very selves.

Our World



John Alley begins today’s message with Psalm 98, a call to worship which speaks of God’s faithfulness to Israel. John moves on to Romans 15:7-12, an exhortation to accept one another as Christ has accepted us. The New Testament, says John, is full of God’s promise to the Patriarchs that there is no distinction, neither Jew nor Gentile. Sociologists have said that the world is quickly moving towards Christianity. However, whereas once Western nations considered themselves the centre of Christianity, the incredible growth that we have seen in our lifetime has been centred largely in Africa, Latin America and Asia. John exhorts the people to pray, seek God and search the Scriptures so that the rest of the world does not leave us behind in the advance of Christianity. John’s message is full of exciting facts: for example, in 1979 the Bible had been translated into 100 languages, but just 37 years later in 2016, the Bible has been translated into 2,239 languages! The world is changing, as our Lord Jesus Christ rules the tide and times and the affairs of men. John exhorts those who hear this message to fight the good fight, to finish the race and to keep the faith, just as Paul said in 1Timothy. John has brought forth many rich Scriptures in this inspiring message, further proof of the will and intention of God for this world.

City Eldership

In the Bible times we see Elders as being leaders over a church - but of course there was only one church in one city. And so there was only one set of elders.

Today with so many denominations and Christian groups it is possible to end up with dozens and even hundreds of completely different sets of elders in cities - and most of them don't know each other, don't love each other, don't pray together, and many are not even real elders in the Biblical sense.

A Gospel for all Cultures



John Alley brings a message today of hope in the Gospel – in the person of Jesus and what He accomplished for all men, for all time. John explains the basic truths – God created man in innocence, but man fell into sin and lost that innocence. Therefore, God sent Jesus, born into the Jewish race but reaching all men and replacing all religions. Although the earthly ministry of Jesus was brief, and He did not travel extensively or conduct large meetings but nevertheless His truth has reached all over the world. Jesus, says John, is the Man for all seasons, all nations and all cultures. Academics have conducted studies which indicate that every good thing in society today finds its roots in the word of God and the teachings of Jesus. John concludes his message with encouragement to the istener to know that when people turn og God, He blesses them and lifts up those nations.

Is the World Improving? - A Christian Missions Viewpoint



John Alley begins today’s message by quoting from a blog by J D King on the subject of the way that Christians are being duped into believing that the world is getting worse and worse. But is evil really growing? Is humanity actually descending further and further into chaos? John brings forth some very convincing statistics which would contradict this view. Deaths as a result of war and violence have decreased dramatically; poverty is in the decline while prosperity and economic opportunity continue to spread.; people are living linger and are healthier, while Christianity has quadrupled over the last 100 years. Much of the spread of Christianity has occurred in the “difficult” regions of the world – Africa, Latin America, China and the Middle East, for example. A tendency among Christians, says John, is to gravitate towards bad news. This is uninformed thinking – the world is getting better. Jesus is on the move, bringing life and blessing.

On Earth Peace #2 - The Kingdom Prophecies



Expanding on his Christmas message, John Alley reads from Luke Chapter 2, bringing out four points to consider carefully from the text. Backed up by many supporting Scriptures, John speaks of the importance of the name of Jesus, the infallibility and power of the word of God and the humility of walking in the grace of total surrender to the will and purposes of God in our lives before dwelling on the subject of Bible prophecies. Jesus will reign forever on the throe of David, who was king of Israel. But this Israel, says John, is the spiritual Israel – all of those who will walk in submission to God. Great numbers of things in society have been profoundly affected through the influence of the Gospel, says John, and the Kingdom of God is an eternal Kingdom.

Christs Messianic Reign in 4 Psalms



This message by John Alley explores the question as to when Jesus began to rule and reign as Messiah on David's throne. John presents many Scripture verses from the New Testament which all point to the fact that as soon as Jesus was resurrected, he was given all authority and power -- in short, Jesus ruled at the right hand of God from that very time. John then goes on to draw strong parallels between Daniel's revelation (Dan 7:13) and Revelation 5:1-10, both of which indicate that Jesus, once slain, rose again and was found worthy to open the scroll and to reign. John then goes on to quote four Psalms: Ps 2, Ps 22, Ps 72 and Ps 110, which also strongly reveal the rule and reign of Christ.
