Rejoice Not In This



John Alley examines the proper balance to be found in walking with God while being alert to the need for spiritual warfare. Beginning his message with a story to illustrate his point, John emphasises that while problems do crop up, we deal with the problem without our emphasis changing from a clear focus on Christ and His will. “I know who I am, and who I belong to. This is my big picture” says John. When a matter for spiritual warfare occurs, it must be dealt with, but it does not change the big picture. John emphasises the importance of being a worshipper and of following the commands that Jesus gave in the Gospels. These, says John, are our key to victory in warfare. John goes on to bring several Scripture references including Luke 10:18-20 in which Jesus says “…do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Following John’s message, David Hood shares some experiences in this vein, encouraging the listeners to praise and worship at every opportunity.

For Times Such As These



This message, delivered in two parts, begins with a prophetic insight from John Alley about the need for God’s people to pray that they might see what is coming “just around the corner”. John, focusing on times of financial difficulty in the church, gives illustrations by way of three stories from the history of Peace. These stories show the reasons behind the times of financial difficulty and the way in which, once steps were taken to address an issue, grace for finances flowed once again. John goes on to propose that in light of the global financial situation and in accordance with what he believes God to be saying, it would be wise for God’s people to be prepared for more stringent times so as to be in the place that God is able to bless with provision. This involves attention to God’s word and His principles as well as listening and being prayerful. John concludes with several Scripture verses referring to these principles and to the faithfulness of God to His blameless ones. David Hood then takes up the message with an exhortation not to grumble, but to have an attitude of gratitude, servitude, faith, encouragement and of the Kingdom rather than focusing on our own lives and situations. Taking the Scripture from Luke 9:23, David exhorts the listener to deny oneself, take up our cross and then to follow Christ. Faith, says David, requires works in order to prove that faith. David gives the example of Isaac, who planted in famine and reaped a hundred fold.
