In the beginning, GodSimon Allaby5th February 201723,551 Kb
Description
Genesis 1:1-25 is the statement 'In the beginning God', a reasonable one or the fantasy of the primitive and uneducated as evolutionists believe. We touch on some of the scientific evidence and the probability of life spontaneously appearing on earth from some kind of primeval soup. But we also explore the purpose and meaning of our lives.

Securing our FreedomSimon Allaby27th November 201617,523 Kb
Description
Nehemiah 9:22-38; 10:30,31,39b The Israelites recognise from their history a pattern of rejection and rebellion against Yahweh that leads to disaster, followed by His rescue and redemption; and so seek to put in place disciplines that will prevent a future repeat - they pledge themselves to not compromise with the values of those around them, to honour the Sabbath and to fulfil their obligations to worship.

Standing FirmSimon Allaby23rd October 201613,088 Kb
Description
Nehemiah 6. As completion of the wall draws near, opposition to the building changes from a general attack on the whole project, to specific targeting of Nehemiah himself. The enemy employs three unsuccessful strategies - isolation and attack, destroy his reputation, and make him look like a coward. Nehemiah overcomes them all and sets an example for us to do the same in our own lives.

The Building Work BeginsSimon Allaby25th September 201624,331 Kb
Description
Nehemiah 3. The work of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem begins - everyone (well almost everyone!) gets involved and works together in a common task. As we seek to build the Kingdom of God through the local church, the devil tries to knock us off course by suggesting that the task is too big, we have nothing to offer, and we could do it if we had the gift that see someone else has! Nehemiah 3 answers all of these objections.

Inspecting the DamageSimon Allaby18th September 201610,020 Kb
Description
APOLOGIES FOR THE POOR QUALITY OF THIS RECORDING Nehemiah 2. Arriving in Jerusalem Nehemiah surveys the damage to the city walls and then calls the residents to help. Opposition to the work springs up immediately but Nehemiah counters with confidence that his God is with him and his enemies have no right or authority over the city. In the Christian life our ability to serve God and build His Kingdom here on earth depends on our understanding the authority and position that we have in Christ.

Responding to CrisisSimon Allaby11th September 201610,705 Kb
Description
Nehemiah 1:1-11. Nehemiah demonstrates for us how to respond to a crisis situation so that we fall not into despair, but rather find a hopeful and Godly way forward. He takes time to wait before God and worship; he reminds himself of God's unfailing covenant of love; he takes responsibility for his part in what has happened; and then he takes action.
