Ephesians 6

Pilgrim's Progress Part 2 - Christiana's Story

Vanity Fair to Doubting Castle

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me if you would, first of all to Ephesians 6. In Pilgrim's Progress, as we've seen now on a number of occasions, and we will see again before we're done...

Pilgrim's Progress - Christiana's Story

Now turn with me, if you have a Bible with you, to Isaiah 66, and I'm going to read the opening two verses of Isaiah 66. Before we read the passage, let's pray together.

Father, this is Your word holy men of old wrote as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. Help us again to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest, and all for...

Pilgrim's Progress - Christiana's Story

Now turn with me if you would to Romans 5, and we are going to read together the closing verses of Romans 5, beginning at verse 18. Now the reason we're reading these particular verses is because in the particular section of Pilgrim's Progress Part II that we're considering this evening, we are going to see Bunyan emphasizing the doctrine of justification, and Bunyan emphasizing more than just...

Pilgrim's Progress - Christiana's Story

We’re going to begin by reading a Scripture together. It's a Scripture that Bunyan cites. There is a point in tonight's part of the story where Mercy, the companion of Christiana, is outside the gates, the Wicket Gate. She hasn't yet entered, and she fears that she may not get in. She fears that the day of reckoning might come, and she is outside. And Bunyan cites a...

Pilgrim's Progress - Christiana's Story

Well, good evening. We come now to a brand new series that will last through October and November. Somewhere at the entrance and exit points there’ll be an outline of the seven lessons in the Second Part of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.

I'm not going to go very far down the journey tonight…just going to introduce the story and a little bit of background, and give you...

Revelation 3:7-13

“A Letter from Jesus”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now turn with me if you would to the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation — a book that often intimidates and frightens and terrifies, because of its use of apocalyptic imagery involving colors and numbers and so on — but we're in none...

Acts 28:17-31

“Preaching from Prison”

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me if you would to the final chapter of The Acts of The Apostles, chapter 28. As you’re doing that, let me just remind you this is the final lesson in The Acts of The Apostles. I always feel, when I come to the end of a study, I want to...

“Peril at Sea”

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Well, it's a joy to be with you again as we continue now in The Acts of The Apostles. Some of you have a map in the back of your Bibles of Paul's missionary journeys, and in particular the journey to Rome that we want to look at. It's a fairly complicated journey, and...

Acts 25:13-26:32

“King Agrippa — Almost Persuaded”

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

This is a lengthy section of Scripture that we have to read. It's all one narrative. This is Paul's defense. It's not strictly a trial, but it is a defense. It is, in technical language, an apologia. This is Paul's apology; this is Paul preaching the gospel, and preaching the gospel...

II Chronicles 33:1-20

“The Prodigal Son”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now from the beauty of Brahms's Requiem to the ugliness of Judean kings, 700 years or so before Christ. Turn in your Bibles now, if you would this morning, to II Chronicles 33. And I want us this morning to examine together the life–biography, if you like–of what has been...

Psalm 24

“Heart Failure”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Amen. Now turn with me if you would to Psalm 24…the Twenty-fourth Psalm. Before we read the Psalm together, let's once again look to the Lord in prayer. Let us all pray.

Lord, we bow again in Your presence. We come confessing that without You we can do nothing. Come, Holy Spirit,...
