Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Lessons begin to flow from this typical church, including: the cloudy pillar shows the way but they must watched for localised dangers. The daily prayer of Moses provides a profound plan for our petitions. Satan infuses gloom that quickly turns to lust - plus remedial thinking.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

In his passage showing the contrast between Adam and Christ, Paul provides five distinct aspects of the Lord's achievements in redemption and the privileges of believers. Here also is the apostle's stirring exhortation to all who are called 'dead to sin', and what this means.

The Conquest of Death 1 Corinthians 15.26
17 May 2015
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

According to the Bible, death is every person's greatest enemy, and is personified as a seemingly invincible ruler over us. But Christ is the opposite of death, and here the help He offers us is compared with the hostile activities of death. To whom will we yield?

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

From the 'strange fire' judgement to the march from Sinai, we trace the preparation of the Israelites in (1) learning to preserve the presence of God; (2) maintaining purity, and (3) pursuing an ideal of true dedication. Here is a pattern for churches today.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Realisation of God's love for us is given by the Spirit first through a profound sight of Calvary, and the price paid for contemptuous sinners. Such great love, we see, can never be withdrawn. Then we receive melting insights of His love during reflection, prayer and praise.

The Great Escape Colossians 1.13
10 May 2015
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Bible teaches that before conversion to God we are like prisoners, except that we do not know it. We need to experience the freedom, reality and fulfilment that comes with the pardon of God. Here is the biblical picture of our 'captivity' and the way out.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

The chief and distinctive purposes of Numbers seen through NT eyes, the Israelites being a type of the church. Here is the 'working church' concept, seldom followed today, the call-up to war and activism, faith, holiness, order, and the centrality of worship in everything.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Promises of wonders greater than the Red Sea crossing were kept then, and subsequently in the history of the church, even to the present wherever saved people strive to keep the conditions named: no compromise, honour spiritual obligations, and be consecrated to God's service.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The priceless benefits of justification are here described and amplified. So great is the 'fortune' of believers, how can we fall into sorrow, or not share it, for the worldling has nothing. It is all by faith, progressively refined in the tests of life.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Christ's parable of the rented vineyard was intended to illustrate how we grasp life for ourselves and resist all the overtures of God. The parallels are clear and challenging, showing the length to which Christ has gone to save lives for eternity.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Following the golden calf God took away His presence and limited the Israelites to a 'preservation' grade of experience, mirrored today when we host worldliness or other sins. Here also is the intercession of Moses and his special experience of God's glory, with lessons.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Paul traces eternal life, by faith alone in God's redeeming plan, back across the centuries to Abraham, and then to King David. It pre-dated circumcision and also the law, and involves dependence on Christ and His creating power to give new and everlasting life.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Everyone, though we may deny it, esteems, worships and obeys a variety of 'forces' and people, becoming shaped by them. The need to admire and submit is inescapable. Here is God's remedy for misplaced servility, and the vast superiority of yielding to Him alone.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

With Moses away, the idolatrous apostasy at Sinai was met by Aaron's strategy of appeasement. It was a disaster, condemned by God (yet recurring to this day in evangelical history). How different from the stance of Moses - a type of Christ and an example to us!
