The Seven Churches of Asia by various speakers - 7 messages (2015-17)

PART 7 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the church at Laodicea (Rev 3:14-22). This was the assembly known for being “lukewarm”. But what does this mean? Mervyn suggests that the assembly was a mixture of saved (hot) and lost (cold) and thus was nauseating to God. God counsels the assembly in Laodicea to buy gold tried in the fire, buy white raiment and anoint their eyes with eye salve. The meaning of these expressions is expounded (Message preached 30th July 2017)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the church at Philadelphia (Rev 3:7-13). This was the assembly that had a little strength, that “kept God’s word” and did not deny His name. To them was given the promise “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation”. They were an evangelistic assembly, before whom God has set an open door. Much can be learned from a study of this commendable company of the Lord’s people! (Message preached 23rd July 2017)

PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the church at Sardis (Rev 3:1-6). The city of Sardis had a great history, was in a great location, possessed great wealth and was proud of its “great culture”. It had a reputation! But in reality its great days were in the past. In like manner, the assembly at Sardis had a reputation for being alive – but the Lord said they were dead. This message is a challenge to formal, dead, complacent Christianity (Message preached 16th July 2017)

PART 4 – Jonathan Black preaches on the church at Thyatira (Rev 2:18-29). Despite this assembly’s many good points, it was marked by a tolerance of error. It was allowing a woman (“Jezebel”) to teach and to mislead the Christians. This message serves as a warning against compromise and weakness in assembly principles, especially as to the subject of “women’s ministry” (Message preached 9th July 2017)

PART 3 – Jonathan Black preaches on the church at Pergamos (Rev 2:12-17). To this church the Lord says “I know where thou dwellest”. They were in a dangerous city and faced huge pressure to compromise with false doctrine. Jonathan applies the point with effectiveness and warns against compromise in our generation (Message preached 14th June 2015)

PART 2 – Jonathan Black preaches a challenging message on the church at Smyrna (Rev 2:8-11). This 1st century assembly featured poor persecuted Christians, yet the Lord says of them “Thou art rich”. However, of the neighbouring assembly in Laodicea, who claimed they were rich, the Lord says “Thou art poor”. What made the difference and what can we learn from the Lord’s assessment? (Message preached 18th Jan 2015)

PART 1 – Jonathan Black preaches a searching message from Revelation Ch 2 on the assembly of God in Ephesus – in many ways a model assembly that had many good points and was active for the Lord, yet had left their first love…have we? (Message preached 7th July 2013)
