Revelation

Increasing Light



God wants to bring His people to a new place, to usher us into a whole new order of things. While we do know the Lord, and know His love, we should come to truly know Him, and truly know His love. It's the same, and yet somehow quite different. What we need is more light. This is something God gives and we should seek Him for it.

Lukewarm Laodicea



The Laodiceans were wealthy and doing well, so it seemed. It would have been something of a shock to hear Jesus say he was going to spit them out of his mouth in his letter to the church in Revelation 3:14-21. Jesus didn't mince words with this church and at the same time he said "those I love I rebuke." Listen to this message about the Laodiceans, containing history and other relevant cultural information, and an application to you today.

Christ's View of Sardis & Philadelphia



David Alley today continues his theme of the letters to the churches found in the book of Revelation. Selecting the letters to Sardis and to Philadelphia from Revelation 3, David compares and contrasts the two churches – both in the eyes of the world and the eyes of Christ. While the church of Sardis was located in a very wealthy city and was well regarded in the eyes of the world, Jesus did not find anything that He could commend them for. Philadelphia, on the other hand, was a small church, not highly esteemed by man. But, says David, sometimes God is at work doing great things in places that we don’t even know of. Christ commended them and gave them three promises that would be theirs if they overcame. David concludes his message with a challenge to consider whether we look too much to the opinion of men rather than listening to God’s word and considering how He sees us.

He Who Searches Hearts And Minds



Jesus said to the believers at Pergamum, "I know where you live... where Satan has his throne." And it was in Pergamum that Antipas, the Bishop appointed by St John, was roasted alive in a copper bull. In this sermon we continue an examination of the 7 churches of Revelation starting with Pergamum and then Thyatira. The faults and struggles of the churches are examined and lessons applied. The message then concludes with an exhortation to yield to Christ individually and corporately as a people. The letter to Thyatira states that Jesus is "he who searches hearts and minds" and this reminds us that Christ is looking for something. In knowing what He wants from us, let us determine to give it to Him.

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.

Smyrna - A Tough Place to Live - David Alley



In the second letter to the churches in the book of revelation, we look at the church of Smyrna. The believers in Smyrna lived in a city Christ called "the synagogue of Satan." It was a tough place to live with a high level of persecution. Smyrna came to be known as "the martyr church." Christ called them to be faithful and they would gain a crown of life. Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna died during the persecution there, and gives us one of the Churches oldest martyr stories. What can we learn from our brothers in Smyrna? Listen and find out.

Revelation and the Beast



Once again John Alley brings a message about “end times”, beginning with an examination of the meaning of the “coming” of Christ and then giving an overview of the book of Revelation. Revelation, John explains, is the most Jewish of all the books of the New Testament, drawing greatly on Jewish symbols, history, concepts and nuances of language. The book was written to the seven churches of Asia, at a time when there was a larger percentage of Jewish Christians in the Asian region, and there was a huge emphasis on Emperor worship. John examines events from history which all point to the book of Revelation being written in about 64 or 65 AD. With this understanding, then, it is very easy to see that most of the prophecy of the book of Revelation has been fulfilled in the great tribulation and suffering inflicted on the Church by the Emperor Nero. Therefore, the Beast referred to in the book would seem to most likely have been Nero himself. John explains many fascinating facts including the source of the number 666 and then goes on to say that as for the future, we have hope, a great calling, a great many promises and a Messiah King ruling in Heaven. We should be encouraged, says John, that although difficult times will come for some people, the Gospel triumphs over them all and we need to pour ourselves out in service to God for the furtherance of the Kingdom.

We Shall Overcome



David Alley begins his message with a brief overview of the history of the Roman Empire. The book of Revelation would have been a great source of comfort to the early church, which was suffering great persecution at the hands of the Romans, says David. He then reads Revelation Chapter 1, as an introduction to the first of the letters written to the seven churches by the Apostle John while in exile on the island of Patmos. The letter to the church at Ephesus was unique in that Ephesus was the home of John prior to his exile, and therefore his home church. David outlines the pattern of the letters: opening phrase, words of commendation, words of rebuke and then the closing phrase. In examining the words of rebuke directed towards the Ephesians – having forsaken their first love – David proposes that the first love they had forsaken was not so much love for God as love for the brethren and for the lost. Of course, love for the brethren and the lost also reflects love for God. Today’s church, says David, must overcome apathy and lack of motivation to pray. With the benefits of history, we can, says David, overcome.
