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. 2 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. 3 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. 4 Then a herald cried [b]aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, 5 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; 6 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”
Good evening. Once again welcome to our online service from this morning in our church fellowship. Today we have the introduction from myself, a testimony from Ivan and Kristie and the Word from Matt Petley.
Firstly, here is a worship video from Matt Redman, Endless Halleluyah:

Today’s message from Matt Petley:
2 Peter 3: 1-9 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
