SERMON TOPIC: The humanity of Jesus (Christmas sermon)

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 23 December 2018

Topic Groups: JESUS, CHRISTMAS, LUKE

Sermon synopsis: In order to save us, Jesus had to be part of the same family. In fact, in the NT Jesus is referred to as:
Son of God: 38 times (most of these references by others)
Son of Man: 84 times (most of these references by himself).

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 11 May 2018

Topic Groups: ASCENSION, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Should we celebrate the Ascension? Well, all of heaven celebrated the victorious return of the Son of God, who successfully completed his mission. He had paid the price for sin and conquered death.

Rev 3:21 'To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. '


Ken-Paynter/Which-Jesus-do-you-serve.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Which Jesus do you serve

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 8 April 2018

Topic Groups: COMMITMENT, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: October 19, 2017 – John Stonestreet   Who is Jesus?
It’s a foundational question, and one many Christians struggle to answer.
In Matthew 16, Jesus asks His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” “Some say John the Baptist,” they replied, “others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
“But who do you say that I am?”
These days, increasingly odd and just plain wrong answers to the Jesus’ question seem to be floating around everywhere, and churches are one of the easiest places to find them. When you see increasingly unorthodox and innovative ideas about sex, marriage, and the human person coming from religious leaders, you can bet they’re also entertaining increasingly unorthodox and innovative ideas about truth, the Bible, and even God Himself.

SERMON TOPIC: God's will and our desires - Part 8b

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 23 July 2017

Topic Groups: DESTINY, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: The true identity of Jesus Christ is more important to our eternal destiny than any other single factor.

Matthew 16:13-18 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 
And I tell you that you are Peter (PETROS), and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it”. 


Gavin-Paynter/Jesus-in-the-Old-Testament-Part4b.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Jesus in the Old Testament - Part 4b

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 27 September 2015

Topic Groups: TYPOLOGY, NEW COVENANT, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: The Old Testament (Covenant) contains shadows – the New Testament has the realities:

Heb 10:1 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves.

Last time we looked at Joseph and how he foreshadowed Jesus. Today we continue to look at the life of Joseph and how he was a type of the Lord Jesus.


Johnray-Rennie/The-foundation-stone.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The foundation stone

Speaker: Johnray Rennie

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 31 May 2015

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Isaiah 28:16 (NRSV) therefore thus says the Lord God, See, I am laying in Zion a foundation stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation: 'One who trusts will not panic.'

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.


Gavin-Paynter/Jesus-in-the-Old-Testament-Part4a.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Jesus in the Old Testament - Part 4a

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 23 November 2014

Topic Groups: TYPOLOGY, NEW COVENANT, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Joseph’s brothers were angry when he foretold that one day they would have to bow down to him. Some wanted to kill him and others thought that by selling him into slavery they had thwarted any fulfillment of his dreams forever.

But there came a day when they had to bow the knee to Joseph as the ruler in Egypt, who was the only one who could supply their desperate need during the famine.

Today there are those who refuse to acknowledge Jesus as Lord of their life. They try to silence his voice and scoff at the thought of being subservient to him. But whether they choose to serve him in this life or not, the day will come when they will have to bow before him and confess him as Lord. Even those who reject Jesus now, will ultimately have to bow the knee to him.

Phil 2:10-11 … that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Sermon synopsis: Amos 8:11-12 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. (KJV)

SERMON TOPIC: The Good Shepherd

Speaker: Brendan Bentley

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 17 August 2012

Topic Groups: GOOD SHEPHERD, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Psalm 23 (KJV) 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


Des-Burrows/20120318_What-Jesus-Said.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: What Jesus said

Speaker: Des Burrows

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 18 March 2012

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Jesus life is so significant; it divides our entire record of human history into two eras; before and after Christ.
Jesus spent three years as an itinerant country teacher before being executed in Jerusalem at age 33.
During those 3 years:
- He preached to the crowds in the open air;
- He trained his disciples
- He challenged the authority of the religious leaders, and confronted their hypocrisy
- He lived out the values he preached
- He performed amazing deeds and after his death his disciples believed he came back to life.
It is not too much to suggest that Jesus remains the single most influential figure in human history.
Today many millions around the world follow him and his teaching.

SERMON TOPIC: The Storm Walker

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 20 February 2011

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Matt 14:22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. 25 During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

SERMON TOPIC: Christ the centre

Speaker: Pat Moffat

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 5 September 2010

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: John 12:20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the Feast. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.
23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
27 “Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name!”

SERMON TOPIC: Its all about Jesus

Speaker: Candice Towndrow

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 18 July 2010

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Rev 7:9 After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” 13 Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?” 14 I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16 Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. 17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

SERMON TOPIC: Hebrews 2

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 27 June 2010

Topic Groups: HEBREWS, JESUS, BOOK STUDY

Sermon synopsis: We saw last time how Jesus is greater than the angels because he is the SON OF GOD. Now we are shown how he also was the SON OF MAN and became “a little lower than the angels”.
Jesus is not ashamed to call us (humans) his brothers. In the NT Jesus is referred to as:
- Son of God: 38 times, most of these references by others.
- Son of Man: 84 times, most of these references by himself.

Sermon synopsis: Luke 6:26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you,

SERMON TOPIC: The heart of our prayerful Saviour

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Topic Groups: JESUS, THE HEART

Sermon synopsis: Matt 6:5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
”‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

SERMON TOPIC: My sheep hear My voice

Speaker: Sam Ennis

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 4 October 2009

Topic Groups: JESUS, GOOD SHEPHERD

Sermon synopsis: Jesus’ sheep:
(1) Hear His voice
(2) Follow His guidance
(3) Receive His Life
(4) Abide in His Care.

John 10: 11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep …

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. …
24 The Jews gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father’s name speak for me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

SERMON TOPIC: Who do you say I am

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 6 September 2009

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Mark 8:27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”
28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”
29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Peter answered, “You are the Christ.”
30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.
31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”




Leston-Blackburn/Leston-Blackburn.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The fragrance of Christ

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 17 May 2009

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Mark 14:1 Now the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some sly way to arrest Jesus and kill him. 2 “But not during the Feast,” they said, “or the people may riot.”
3 While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head.
4 Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, “Why this waste of perfume? 5 It could have been sold for more than a year’s wages and the money given to the poor.” And they rebuked her harshly.
6 “Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 7 The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. 8 She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial. 9 I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them. 11 They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

SERMON TOPIC: Jesus in the Old Testament - Part 3

Speaker: Leston Blackburn

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 22 March 2009

Topic Groups: TYPOLOGY, JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Some people view the Bible in 2 distinct, unrelated parts – the Old Testament and the New Testament. To some, the Old Testament is a collection of books written thousands of years ago in a Middle-Eastern, agricultural setting, and consequently, while it may have some value today, there are, some would say, sizeable chunks that are irrelevant to a modern, westernised world. People who hold this view will tell you that the New Testament is really what we should focus on, because it reveals Christ to us and contains teachings relevant to us as Christians and as Church. They would argue that one doesn’t see much about Jesus in the Old Testament Scriptures.

But nothing could actually be further from the truth! In fact the Old Testament gives one of the most wonderful, detailed and precise portraits of Christ that we could ever wish to see! It is just a case of knowing what to look for! I believe the primary reason God gave us the Old Testament is because He has the very vital and purposeful intention of pointing us to Christ! As St. Augustine put it, ‘The New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed!” God has given us the Old Testament as a roadmap to the heart of the Father through the gift of the son, by the enabling and empowering of the Spirit! It points us to Christ, God come in the flesh to reconcile mankind to Himself! Indeed, to hold any other view of the Old Testament is to hold a view contrary to what Jesus taught! Jesus confirmed that the entire Old Testament was a portrait of Himself!

Most importantly, what do the Scriptures say in this regard?

SERMON TOPIC: The person of Christ

Speaker: John Tait

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 25 October 1998

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Rev John Tait and his wife Elsie from the Assemblies of God in Scotland were missionaries to Africa.
As youngsters John and Elsie were converted under the ministry of Tom Beckett: Elsie in Paisley and John in Cairnbulg, Scotland. With an impeccable Pentecostal pedigree, their aspiration was for overseas service. Elsie trained in general nursing and midwifery while John graduated in pharmacy, supplemented with a diploma in theology.
When David Newington, Executive Director of Emmanuel Press, introduced ‘Lifeline to Africa’ project at the Assemblies of God Conference, there was an immediate witness of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of both that this was the will of God for them. As the first ‘Lifeliners’, John and Elsie with their 3 young children left for South Africa in 1967, tentatively for a period of 2 years which, by the grace of God, was extended to 12 years! In that ‘apartheid’ era John was obliged to resist the politically correct agenda and befriend the African constituency by regular visits to the townships with practical help and literature evangelism sponsored by Emmanuel Press.
After such a long period in Africa, it was an emotional wrench to depart from the ‘rainbow nation’ and a decided culture shock to adapt to the British way of life again.
For over 25 years they have been happily engaged in pastoral ministry with the Assemblies of God in Scotland and England.

SERMON TOPIC: Jesus being forsaken

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 30 March 1997

Topic Groups: JESUS, CRUCIFIXION

Sermon synopsis: When Jesus died all the things that were part of the torment that He endured – were things that He had made.

John 1: 10 “He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.”

F. W. Pitt wrote,
“The Maker of the universe,
As Man for man was made a curse.
The claims of Law which He had made,
Unto the uttermost He paid.
His holy fingers made the bough,
Which grew the thorns that crowned His brow.
The nails that pierced His hands were mined
In secret places He designed.

He made the forest whence there sprung
The tree on which His body hung.
He died upon a cross of wood,
Yet made the hill on which it stood.
The sky that darkened o'er His head,
By Him above the earth was spread.
The sun that hid from Him it's face
By His decree was poised in space.

The spear which spilled His precious blood
Was tempered in the fires of God.
The grave in which His form was laid
Was hewn in rocks His hands had made.

The throne on which He now appears
Was His for everlasting years.
But a new glory crowns His brow
And every knee to Him shall bow.”

SERMON TOPIC: THE PERSON OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

Speaker: Warren Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date:

Topic Groups: JESUS

Sermon synopsis: When we look at any doctrinal matter, we need always to go to the beginning.
Thus the TESTIMONY of the Old Testament to the DEITY of CHRIST is of prime importance.
In view of the fact that the LORD HIMSELF said, “No MAN hath seen GOD at any time”, (John 1:18), and that “The only begotten SON (GOD) which is in the BOSOM of the FATHER, he hath declared him.” We need to ask ourselves the question as to who it was who appeared to Adam, Enoch, Abraham, Moses and many others in the Old Testament scriptures?

There can be no doubt that the person who appeared to them, claiming DEITY, could not have been the FATHER nor could it have been the HOLY SPIRIT.
Indeed it was none other than the person of the GODHEAD who was responsible for creating all that was visible and invisible.
