Resurrection

Finding Christ Finding Rest

We read in many places in the Bible about “rest”, or “Sabbath rest”. But what do these terms really mean, and how do we attain rest? John Alley begins this message with Isaiah 58:13-14, which speaks of the importance of not breaking the Sabbath. John goes on to explain that in Old Testament times keeping the Sabbath was a sign of the Covenant. Under the New Covenant, however, even though we are not saved by keeping the Law, nevertheless the principles set out in the Old Covenant are valuable to us. The sign of the New Covenant, says John, is…

Jesus is Calling Believe

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.

When dreams appear to have shattered, we become like Cleopas, unable in that moment to…

In listening to this message you will hear 8 proofs for the resurrection as a physcial historical event. And also 5 things which are implications for your life as a believer today.

Finding Resurrection Life

Continuing in the vein of examining what Jesus has done for us in His death on the cross and glorious resurrection, Lloyd Gill speaks powerfully on the subject of the victory to be found in understanding the resurrection of Christ. Lloyd states that the inability of death to hold Jesus shows the totality of His victory, and exhorts the listener to seek the spirit of wisdom and understanding, as described in the first chapter of Ephesians. Using this and several other passages of Scripture, Lloyd explains that it is only by possessing this understanding we may walk in…
