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.

Complete Surrender



John Alley speaks of the nature of Jesus, who was fully and properly man at the same time that he was fully and properly God. John describes in detail the historical deliberations of the Church elders on this subject and the origin of the Nicene Creed that we know today. The human race, explains John, owed a great debt of sin. Spiritual law demands that debts must be paid. God could not pay the price in the person of God, and so in order to carry out His plan of redemption He had to find a man who was sinless and who could pay the debt. In the person of Jesus, God became man and lived amongst us. John explains this reality in wonderful clarity and then challenges the listener to consider that although we might believe in Jesus, and may have prayed for forgiveness of our sins, unless we are surrendered to the lordship of Christ, the cross has no power for us. We must come to the place where we fully surrender our lives to Him.

Jesus is Calling Believe



Michael Appleton begins this composite message with passages from Romans 4 and John 20. Michael speaks of the power of the resurrected Christ for those who believe, and goes on to speak of appearances recorded in Scripture. It was when He called Mary Magdalene by name that her eyes were opened, says Michael, and today Jesus is calling the name of each of us. Will we hear and recognise the risen Christ? Jonathan Maxwell continues the message, speaking of those times when we ask, “Jesus, where are you now?” Our experience, says Jonathan, does not negate the truth of what Jesus said and promised. Jonathan examines several Scripture verses that illustrate that Jesus is the resurrection and that He will do what He said. Jonathan concludes with an exhortation to believe - and we will see the glory of God.

The Continuity of Law and Grace



John Alley prefaces this message with truths about posterity – the generations to come and the way in which our faithful prayers today can affect the outcome for those generations. John then goes on to discuss the continuous nature of law and grace. For the person without the Gospel, says John, the law has no power to strengthen, only to condemn. However, once grace has been received the law becomes a wonderful teacher, pointing the way to righteousness in Christ. The law reveals to us our sinful nature and also the moral integrity and purity of God. When we receive gospel grace, however, we are free from the law, which no longer condemns us but instructs us in a life of obedience to the grace we have received. John illustrates his message with many strong Scripture references, encouraging the listener to consider the continuity of law and grace as a harmonious combination for those who choose to live under grace.

The Word of Your Testimony



The Bible says that "they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and the word of their testimony." In this message John Alley is joined by Ivan Pyers as they expound the power of our words and testimony. The book of Romans says that "The God of Peace shall soon crush Satan under your feet." John expounds about how the word of God within us has power to defeat Satan, and Ivan tells some interesting and sometimes funny illustrations of this principle at work.

Eat my Dust



God was the first person to say "Eat my Dust," and it was spoken to the snake in the Garden of Eden. Christ triumphed mightily over the enemy on the cross and in this message John Alley follows a large trail of references to Christ's triumph and many other references to Satan being in the dust. John discusses the Roman concept of a Triumphal Procession after victory. This involved displaying the captives through the streets of Rome, a procedure that often took days. At various places along the way various enemies were publicly disgraced and killed. The Bible equates Christs victory as "triumph." The devil has been humiliated. However believers often have limited understanding, and the devil is a deceiver and so he still has power in our lives to influence us. This message helps us see a bigger picture of our place. It culminates in a reference to Satan being placed "under our feet." Finally the devil's humiliation is worse than before, because now the children of God has authority over him. This is a powerful message and one that will get you thinking, praying and believing that more is possible.

What Must I Do To Be Saved



David Hood begins this message with a reading from Acts 16, where the question is asked, “What must I do to be saved?” The reply, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved……” raises the question of what it really means to believe. David takes the listener on a journey commencing with the understanding, as in John 1:1, that Jesus is the Word, the logos of God. Drawing on the articles of faith as examples of the real impact this should have on our lives, David explores Scriptures in the books of Romans, Luke and John as well as many other references. David points out that being Christians, we are meant to represent Christ, bringing life and hope while speaking the Word in love – but since Jesus did not come to judge or condemn (John 3:17) neither should we judge or condemn others. Jesus instructs us to love one another just as He has loved us, but in our own strength we cannot successfully do this. We are meant to humble ourselves and ask for his help and his grace to live as his representatives in the earth. David draws his message to a conclusion with the challenging thought that denial of the Word of God is denial of Christ, just as the Word without love, compassion and grace is not the Word of God.

Insights Into Unity
