The Heavenly View

Posted on

Good afternoon and welcome to the recording from today’s service. We stated today by looking at Isaiah 6:1-8, Isaiah’s vision of the Lord in glory. One of our two featured songs today is the video of Graham Kendrick’s ‘I Saw the Lord’, a beautiful worship song that describes Isaiah’s vision.

The other video today is another Graham Kendrick song, a praise song called ‘Praise Him Moon and Stars’, taken from Psalm 148. The recording of today’s message follows the videos.

Bless you, Andy.

Here is today’s message, The Heavenly View:

Matthew 17:1-8 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters – one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’

While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!’ When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground, terrified. But Jesus came and touched them. ‘Get up,’ he said. ‘Don’t be afraid.’ When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

2 Peter 1:16-19 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eye-witnesses of his majesty. 17 He received honour and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’[a] 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. 19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

NTM, testimonies and the example of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego

Good afternoon and welcome to the recording from this morning’s service. We started today by referencing a tweet shared by Franklin Graham, and sharing how, despite the narrative of fear in our country at present, the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear, but love, power and a sound mind, 2Timothy 1:7. In these times, Corrie Ten Boom is someone we can look at and learn lessons from.

Today we heard from Matt Petley on the history and work of New Tribes Mission, based near us at North Cotes, and testimonies from Matt and Nathan & Maria. Matt also shared regarding the lessons we can draw from Daniel 3.

Before that, here are two worship videos, the first from Paul Balouche, Praise is Rising, and the second from Robin Mark, Be unto Your Name.

Bless you, Andy.

Here is the message from today. There is a presentation that goes along with the message. We are at present unable to host the presentation on the website but if you would like a copy, please email to request one.

Daniel 3: 1-6:  Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was [a]sixty cubits and its width six cubits. He set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. And King Nebuchadnezzar sent word to gather together the satraps, the administrators, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. So the satraps, the administrators, the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the judges, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces gathered together for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then a herald cried [b]aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”

Due to some technical issues today’s recording is in two parts, apologies for that.

The Magi & their Gifts

Posted on

Welcome to our recording of this morning’s message, which is featured below. Our two video’s today are firstly one from Melanie Penn, Love’s Coming Down (Isaiah’s Song), followed by O Come O Come Emmanuel by Hymns & Hers.

Every blessing, Andy.

Here is this morning’s message, The Magi & their Gifts:

Mat.2:1-12 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, ‘Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.’

When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written:

‘“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,     are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.”[b]

Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, ‘Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.’

After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
