After the ominous warning of the -man of lawlessness-, Paul now encourages the Thessalonians to recognize that since they are held firm by God--via election--they can stand firm in Him and His promises. The Father has chosen His people from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit to obtain the glory of the Son. So they may …
 
Psalm 107 gives thanks to God for His goodness and wonderful works to men. The psalm gives thankful praise to God for His redemption of His Old Covenant people, yet it is poetically written to be applicable to all of God's redeemed who have experienced and will experience His wonderful delivering goodness and love in times of trial and terror.---Ps…
 
In this last passage in Matthew 20 before Jesus and the disciples reach Jerusalem to accomplish what He came to do -chapter 21-, there are two accounts- the first is of the disciples again looking to see who might be the greatest in the kingdom- the second is of two blind beggars who know they are the least and in need of mercy. Sandwiched between …
 
In Matthew 20-17-19 we see Jesus' third prediction of His going to Jerusalem to suffer, die, and be raised on the third day. Jesus repeats these truths to His disciples to patiently prepare them to 1- understand why He came to die and what it meant, 2- to make His work be central to their lives and preaching, and 3- to teach them that they, too, we…
 
To wrap up the discussion around the rich young ruler and entrance and rewards in the kingdom, Jesus stated -Matt 19-30-, -But many who are first will be last, and the last first.- This statement was also the lead-in to another parable of the kingdom--the parable of the laborers in the vineyard -Matt 20-1-16---which ends with, -So the last will be …
 
The three interactions of Matthew 19-13-30 are surprisingly connected to each other and to recent interactions in Matthew's Gospel. It begins with Jesus' rebuke and then teaching of receiving children -see Mt 18-1-5-, followed with Jesus' challenge to the rich young ruler concerning heart righteousness with respect to the Law -see Mt 19-1-12-, and …
 
Near the beginning of His earthly ministry, Jesus corrected the Pharisees' corrupt teaching on divorce in the Sermon on the Mount. Now near the end of His ministry, in Matthew 19, Jesus corrects the Pharisees' teaching on divorce in direct response to their test of Him. So here we preach a similar sermon to that from Matt 5-31-32, but with more emp…
 
Psalm 24 has its ultimate fulfillment in the Ascension and Coronation of Christ. The Gospel of Christ is told in Psalm 24, as we see how righteousness is received from Christ through Him being the Creator King, the Incarnate King, and the Conquering King.---Psalm 24 - King of Glory -Ascended Shepherd--I. Creator King -vv1-2-----A. The Creator King-…
 
Psalm 23 is the most well-known and beloved psalm, yet it can only truly be understood in the light of Christ. If the I AM Jehovah God Almighty of the universe amazingly stoops down and gives His life to be your Shepherd, you shall not lack anything. This is because you are in the One who Himself does not lack anything.-----Psalm 23- -with thanks t…
 
The famous parable of the unforgiving servant is only found here at the end of Jesus' fourth discourse in Matthew -Matt 18---a discourse on life in the kingdom-church. And the full and true understanding and application of this parable flows from it being the final point of Jesus' exhortation to His disciples--and us--on how to live life together i…
 
Psalm 22 is often called the Psalm of the Cross and is one of the most overlooked gems in all of Scripture. The two sections of the psalm begin with words of Christ, as verified by the New Testament. The first section vividly describes the crucifixion of Christ and ends with the Father accepting the Son's substitutionary atonement for His people. T…
 
Perhaps the most famous section of Jesus' fourth discourse in Matthew's Gospel is vv15-20 and its topic of church discipline. However, this church discipline section cannot be understood or applied appropriately without understanding the context of the whole chapter. The foundation of seeing oneself and the brethren as little children, receiving on…
 
Comfort for the Believer- The Coming of the Lord---2 Thessalonians 2-1-12---I. The Coming of the Lord -vv1-2-----A. What it is----B. It has not come -II. What must precede that Day -vv3a,4-8a- ----A.

00-00 Sermon-44-30 Testimony-51-55 Baptism---Jesus' Matthew 18 discourse on living life together in the church builds on the foundation of believers accepting their status as insignificant and vulnerable little children -vv1-4- so that they might receive and protect other little ones in the church -vv5-9- and retrieving each straying little one -vv…
 
00-00 Sermon-44-45 Testimony-56-10 Baptism---Jesus' Matthew 18 discourse on living life together in the church builds on the foundation of believers accepting their status as insignificant and vulnerable little children -vv1-4- so that they might receive and protect other little ones in the church -vv5-9-.---Matthew 18-5-9 - Receiving and Protectin…
 
Matthew 18 is Jesus' fourth discourse in Matthew's Gospel. The chapter is to be taken as a whole, with the theme being -Life in the Kingdom.- It teaches us how to live within the church.---And the foundation to the whole chapter is in 18-1-4, where Jesus, in response to the disciples' question of who will be the greatest in the kingdom, teaches by …
 
Even after the mountaintop power of the Cross and Glory of Christ we still must rely upon the Grace of Christ in our day-to-day living for Him.-Corresponding to the three failings of the Disciples in this passage we can see the need for three types of graces from our Savior.---Matthew 17-14 - 27-Down from the Mountaintop- You Still Need My Grace-I.…
 
To encourage His disciples to follow Him and to follow Him singularly, Christ takes three of the disciples to experience His transfiguration revealing His glory and meant to be a foretaste to His final coming in glory.-----Glory is an incentive for the Cross, but the way to Glory is through the Cross, with Cross in midst of Glory.-----Matthew 16-13…
 
0-00-00 Sermon--0-42-45 Testimony--1-09-28 Baptism-----After we find out who Jesus is -the Christ-- and who His followers are -the Church--, Jesus declares what He and His followers must do. Christ must carry His cross unto death and resurrection. And His followers are required to carry His cross, as well.-----A testimony and baptism followed the s…
 
Christ's reaction to Peter's amazing Spirit-given confession of Christ's identity was to surprisingly teach about His Church. From the importance and centrality of Christ to the importance and centrality of Christ's Church- And here we learn of the Church's Builder, her foundation and her keys--all of which prove the Church to be given the greatest…
 
The Pilgrims' journey through the Songs of Ascents comes to an end with Psalms 133-134. And it fittingly concludes with exhortation for the Pilgrims to dwell together in unity and worship--with the emphasis on -dwelling together.- Our Christian pilgrimage is to be a pilgrimage 'together' in unity in Christ's church and for His glory.---Ps 133 - Dwe…
 
In Psalm 132, after moving from imprecation -Ps 129- to penitence -Ps 130- to contentedness -Ps 131-, the Pilgrim now refocuses on the priority of the presence, holiness, and atonement of God in Jerusalem. His ascent to Zion follows the ascent of the Ark of God back to Jerusalem -during David's retrieval of it-. And it leads to a joyous anticipatio…
 
After focusing on the judgment of the wickedness of others in the imprecatory Psalm 129, the Pilgrim next turns to conviction over and confession of his own sin in the penitential Psalm 130. Then, after experiencing redemption-restoration by grace in Psalm 130, the Pilgrim rests in God in a humble contentedness in Psalm 131.---Psalm 130 is its own …
 
Psalm 129 is the 10th of the 15 Songs of Ascents -Pilgrim Psalms- and it takes the Songs' frequent references to persecution and brings it into focus. The first half of Psalm 129 describes the persecution of the pilgrim in this world while the second half is an imprecatory prayer in response. The center of Psalm, however, is the high point, as it p…
 
This sermon looks at the Effectual Call of Christ- the examination of it- its component parts- and its resultant effect on the life of the believer.---Baptist Catechism Question -34-Q. What is Effectual Calling- -A. Effectual Calling is the work of God's Spirit -2 Tim 1-9- 2 Thes 2-13-14-, whereby convincing us of our sin and misery -Acts 2-37-, en…
 
The great danger of Christmas is that men see the Baby in the manger as nothing more than that, they are content to let Him stay there, and the whole Christ is never considered.---Why did He come as a child- Why did He come at all- Who is He- Is this Baby in a manger really worth all this attention----But if you look closely at this Baby you find s…

Like after feeding the 5000, now, after feeding the 4000, Jesus is confronted by Jewish leaders. This time, significantly, it is the Pharisees and Sadducees, and they are testing Him. Jesus' response to their demand of a -sign from heaven- and then His related warning to His disciples about the -leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees- is a key and o…
 
It's another Xmas bonus podcast! Before we wrap up the show with our festive Get Back special, here's our trip to Abbey Road from August. On an unforgettable summer's evening, Jack, Robin and friend of the show, Elis James, fulfil a life-long dream of stepping over the zebra crossing and through the famous doors of Abbey Road studios. In this speci…
 
The remainder of Matt 15 follows from the first 20 verses. Matthew takes us from the topics of unclean hands, foods, and hearts -vv1-20- to that of unclean people--Gentiles -vv21-39-. In fact, the key to Matthew 15 is recognizing that Jesus is preparing the way to tear down the wall between Jew and Gentile--that the Gospel of Grace is free to all p…
 
As a little festive treat, here is our bonus episode from earlier this year. Johnny White Really-Really returns to the podcast as we challenge each other to cover some Beatles songs! Listen to us pick each other's songs, discuss the process of recording and producing them, and then hear the results in full! Many thanks to James Whiting for mixing a…
 
In Matt 15-1-20, Jesus uses another confrontation by the Scribes and Pharisees and their legalistic traditions to proclaim and explain the necessity of a new heart. It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth -originating from the heart-.-----I. Condemnation of Pharisees -have bad hearts- -vv1-9------A. Co…
 
Broadcaster Shaun Keaveny joins Jack and Robin this week to chat about his love of the Beatles. Shaun chats to Jack and Robin about his experiences with the band growing up, interviewing Paul and Ringo for Eight Days a Week, and we take a deep dive into the Super Deluxe re-release of Let It Be. Jack and Robin also offer some more thoughts on The Be…
 
The Songs of Ascents are discipleship songs that were sung by Jewish pilgrims on the trip up to Jerusalem for one of the three annual feasts. So it makes sense that some of the Songs would relate to seeking and trusting the Lord in the daily family life. Psalms 127 and 128 are a pair of the Songs that do indeed teach concerning the family.---Psalms…
 
Comedian and podcaster Adam Buxton joins us to share his Personal Beatles. In this suitably rambling chat, Jack and Robin talk to Adam about everything from the Stars on 45 Beatles medley, the 2000 TV movie Two of US, recording his version of How Do You Sleep, and of course, interviewing Sir Paul on his podcast. You can also hear some unheard audio…

We also have an extended intro in…
 
With this seventh Song of Ascents the pilgrim is once again dealing with the trials of this world which is not his true home as he continues on his upward journey in obedience to God. And he once again -like Ps 124- is looking back to see God's previous deliverance to be encouraged for today and in the future. However, in Psalm 126 the aspect of jo…
 
Psalm 125, the sixth of fifteen Song of Ascents, opens with -Those who trust in the LORD...- and then emphasizes the pilgrim's trust in his Lord. It follows Psalm 124 nicely...---Ps 124- God Persevering with His Pilgrim Saints---Ps 125- Pilgrim Saints Trusting their Persevering God ---I. Pilgrims who Trust in the Lord -Ps 125-1a--II. Protection of …
 
This fifth Song of Ascents -Ps 124- connects to the lament at the end of the fourth -Ps 123- by remembering God's presence and past deliverances to gain trust in and praise for Him.---Psalm 124 is a Song of Remembering and Thanksgiving for Pilgrim People- God who has been with us to persevere is still with us now and will continue with us. He perse…

Jesus' miracles in Matt 14-13-36 are well-known -feeding 5000, walking on water-, but they are meant to point to Jesus and His great compassion. The miracles in Matt 14 display Jesus' Deity and Compassion. ---Jesus is such a compassionate Savior, who will not turn away the sinner who falls before Him, nor will He turn away the saint who follows Him…
 
This week, Jack and Robin are joined by Alasdair MacLean of the band The Clientele. We discuss the impact Twist and Shout and Strawberry Fields had on Alasdair, slightly dodgy Beatles compilations including Beatles Ballads and the Rock n Roll Music albums of the 70s, the book, Songwriting Secrets of the Beatles, and a whopping controversial Beatles…
 
The Songs of Ascents -Ps 120-134- were sung by Jewish pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem to worship God and be with God's people for one of the annual Jewish festivals. They are wonderful encouragements and discipleship songs to Christians in their 'long obedience in the same direction' as they journey as pilgrims here while citizens of heaven, awa…
 
In the tragic story of John the Baptist's murder, we can gain encouragement through his courageous, righteous character willing to speak the truth in the face of death. We need more men--and women--willing and able graciously and biblically represent Christ and His righteousness in the face of an increasingly unrighteous society. To live is Christ,…
 
The Perspective Glass and the Revelation of Jesus Christ.-2 Thessalonians 1-5-12---If we understand what Paul is trying to teach the Thessalonians in this passage, -we will gain a perspective which will allow us to suffer through anything for Christ and serve Christ with everything.
