LATEST AUDIO TEACHINGS

Audios from my most recent sermon series are posted on this page. As each series is completed it is moved to the Archived Sermons page. I am currently running an expository series one Sunday with a topical series on alternate Sundays.

 

EXPOSITORY SERIES:

Paul’s Letter to the Romans

What’s the big deal about Romans and why is it considered the greatest letter ever written? For my Book Club friends … why on earth would I want to teach through this book again?

  • 17 – Romans 5:20 – 6:4. Why was the torah given to Israel? What does baptism achieve? Is it mystical or symbolic? (30 mins)

  • 16 – Romans 5:12-19. What does Augustine’s doctrine of ‘original sin’ have to do with Romans 5? And why is Christ a better corporate solidarity than Adam? (27 mins)

Download

 

  • 15 – Romans 5:1-11. Do you feel that your relationship with God is perfect? If not, why not? (26 mins)

Download

 

  • 14 – Romans 4,14-25. Let’s face it, Abraham really made a mess of things. What was God’s response? How does he view us when we screw up? (29 mins).

  • 12 – Romans 3:24-31. Did God punish Christ because he was angry at sin? Or is their an alternative explanation? (30 mins)

Download

 

  • 11 – Romans 3:10-23. Why does Paul quote so many scriptures to prove that all men are sinful? Was he rambling or was he very skilful in his selection of texts? Many Protestant teachers tell us that, at salvation, Christ’s perfect righteousness is ‘imputed’ to us. Is that true? (35 mins)

  • 10 – Romans 3:1-9. What advantage is there in being Jewish? Why do the translators try to conceal it? (30 mins)

Download

 

  • 09 – Romans 2:25-29. The Apostle concludes his rebuke of his Jewish brethren. He also has a little play on words which, perhaps, only he understood! (27 mins)

Download

 

  • 03 – Romans 1:8-17. The Apostle Peter wrote that some of Paul’s writings are “hard to understand” (2 Peter 3:16). Verses 8-15 are fairly straightforward. But after that, Romans starts to get a little bit tricky. (35 mins)

Download

 

  • 02 – Romans 1:1-7. What can we learn about Christ; about Paul, and about ourselves from the first seven verses of the epistle? (35 mins – sorry about the heckler)

TOPICAL SERIES:

What Happens When You Die? 

If you’re a genuine follower of our Messiah, your eternal future is secure? But what about those who aren’t? Does the Bible explicitly teach that they will suffer eternal torment?

  • 04 – Paradise. Jesus promised the thief on the cross that they would be in Paradise together that very day. That being the case, how is that the risen Christ could tell Mary on the Sunday morning that he had not yet ascended to his father? Where is Paradise anyway? (30 mins)

Download

 

  • 03 – She’ol. The Old Testament teaches that all the dead – righteous and wicked – go to she’ol at death to await resurrection. It’s commonly taught that Jesus emptied she’ol between his death and resurrection taking all the righteous souls to heaven with him. Is that what the Bible really teaches? (33 mins)

Download

 

  • 02 – Awake! In this instalment we conclude that the ‘soul sleep’ is not supported by the scriptures. But if the soul is conscious after death… where does it go? (34 mins)

  5. Dearest Michael,

    I am SO grateful for all your teachings. Can’t wait for the next installment in your First Peter series. I just wish I could convey to you how it blesses me and how vital it is to me that I have access to teachings of this calibre. You make the Word of God make sense to me. Thank you Michael.

    Shalom xxxx

    Thank you once again for your encouragement. I often wonder if anybody listens to these teachings. As long as you find them helpful, be assured that I will continue to post them on the website.
    Love and blessings,

  7. Dearest Michael,

    I just downright LOVE your teaching. You challenge me to adjust my thinking and question those things I’ve been taught in church. Your studies are so rich, and you cause me to dwell on words in the Word that I might ordinarily, in my reading, just pass over.

    You make me see the beauty and the cleverness and the sheer awesomeness, but also the gravity and the seriousness, of the Word of God.

    I have learnt so much from sitting under your teachings, and I praise Almighty God for His gift in you and for your humility of heart and determination to do Him proud in this.

    God bless you and yours always and forever xxxx

    Julie.

  8. Dear Julie,

    What can I say except to thank you again for your consistently kind and gracious encouragement. As I mentioned previously, I sometimes wonder if anybody listens to these audios. The fact that you do, provides me all the incentive I need to keep posting them!

    Stay blessed dear Sister!

    Michael

    1. Hello Anne!
      Lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your encouraging words and, believe me, you are SORELY MISSED at George Town! Love & blessings, Michael
