PSA234 God’s Various Times mp3

In this message, we consider the various times of God’s plans for this world. From the Garden of Eden in Genesis and the start of God’s work, God worked with various men until He chose the man Abraham and his descendants, the nation of Israel. In the Gospel period, Israel continued to be at the center of God’s plans and work. In the Acts period, God continued to work with Israel. Yet in the dispensation of grace, all nations are now equal in God’s current work. In the kingdom of God yet future, Israel will again be at the center, but all nations will be blessed through them.

PSA233 Kingdom Impacts in the Dispensation of Grace mp3

How does the truth of the coming Kingdom of God affect us in the dispensation of grace? What difference should the truth of the coming kingdom make in our lives? How does God want us to live in light of the coming kingdom?

PSA232 The Final Stages mp3

In this message, we examine the final stages of God’s future plan as outlined in Scripture, particularly in the book of Revelation. These are the thousand-year Parousia of Jesus Christ, the Little Season that follows it, and then the New Heavens and the New Earth. How is the period of Christ’s parousia different from the premillennial kingdom period that precedes it? What takes place in the Little Season? What does the ultimate period of the New Heavens and New Earth look like?

PSA231 The Revolt in Zechariah mp3

In this message, we consider the book of Zechariah in a brief outline. It tells us things about Zechariah’s own day, about the coming kingdom of God, but we especially consider its picture of the coming period of the revolt against the kingdom of God, which dominates the end of the book. What does it have to tell us about that coming, climactic period of time?

PSA230 Foreshadowing the Kingdom mp3

In this message, we consider the book of Acts and how it foreshadows the kingdom of God to come. In how it began, in the unity that was experienced then, in the miracles that were performed, and in its triumphs over the rebellious governments of this world, the government of God in the Acts period foreshadowed that great government of God to come. Then, considering the government in Israel under Solomon as he took his reign, and how his method of taking over from his father David may foreshadow the way the kingdom of God will take over in the future and deal with those who are opposed to it.

PSA229 The Promised Son mp3

In this message, we consider the promise of the Son that was given to Adam and Eve all the way back in Genesis, and how that promise was carried through the Old Testament times on to its fulfillment in the Son being given at last in the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

PSA228 Paul’s Two Ministries mp3

In this message, we consider that Paul, the very important agent of God who wrote so many books of the New Testament, nevertheless seems to have strange inconsistencies throughout his ministry. We believe that these are caused by the fact that Paul actually had two ministries: one before Acts 28:28 and one after. We consider the two ministries of Paul and how they differed.

PSA227 Philemon 2 – Not a Slave, But a Brother mp3

In this message, Paul continues to urge Philemon to welcome back his runaway slave who has become a believer, Onesimus. He wished to keep Onesimus, but did not want to do so without Philemon’s permission, since he did not want a gift by compulsion. He believes Philemon can now receive him back for the outflow as a brother. Paul stakes his own relationship with Philemon on this. He should receive him like himself. Paul will pay back any debt Onesimus incurred. He hopes to come to Philemon himself soon. He sends greetings from his companions, and wishes Philemon grace.

PSA226 Philemon 1 – Not Required, But Exhorted mp3

In this message, we begin a study of the book of Philemon. This book illustrates the great principle of Ephesians that God is dealing graciously with us in a dispensation of total grace. Paul writes with Timothy and the inspiration of the Spirit. Philemon, the recipient, was a Colossian, dear to Paul. He greets them and compliments them on their faith and love. Paul could require Philemon to do as he wants, but instead he exhorts him to do as he will to his runaway slave Onesimus. He has brought Onesimus to faith in Christ, and wants Philemon to receive him as he would receive Paul himself.

PSA225 – Jonah 2 – A Lesson For Jonah mp3

Jonah Series 2

In this message, Jonah fulfills his mission to the city of Nineveh, and the people there listen. We discuss this, and if this really makes sense historically. Could God really have changed the hearts of the people of this pagan city? Then, we consider Jonah’s anger about the sparing of Nineveh. He really wanted the city to be destroyed! We discuss his wrath, and the lesson God really had to teach to Jonah, and the lesson there is here for us as well.
