Hannah – Faith in Adversity

Monday, 15th March 2021

Reading: 1 Samuel 1 and 2

In Hannah we see a remarkable mother who, along with her husband Elkanah, sought to serve the Lord our God. She did this in the context of corruption of the priesthood and its worship of God. We see faith in adversity.

The Man Sick of the Palsy

Sunday, 14th March 2021

Readings: Leviticus 22; Psalms 125-127; Luke 5

Throughout our lives as servants of the Lord, what often seems impossible can be overcome by faith and works. In our New Testament reading, we have a wonderful example of faith and how to overcome the obstacles of life, namely the man sick of the palsy. This incident is also recorded in Matthew 9 and Mark 2 and we shall refer mainly to Mark’s record for the basis for our exhortation.

The Sea of Galilee

M00211

Exhortation  from here - obedience brings results

Hymn 203   Reading Luke 5   

Memorial Service recorded for Olivet by Newquay 14th March 2021.

These recordings have been provided for the residents of Olivet during lockdown as it is not possible for normal breaking of bread services to be held.  Consequently this is a shorter memorial service to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters at the home.  There is one reading, a short exhortation and hymns are played during each of the emblems.

A different ecclesia produces the recording each week with a small number of brethren from that ecclesia, and where possible these are shared on the CIL Recordings Library so more may benefit from this service.

The Dispute over the Body of Moses in Jude v9

Monday, 8th March 2021

“But Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing judgment, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”                                    (Jude 9, Revised Version)

It has been generally assumed that this passage is a quotation from the apocryphal book The Assumption of Moses (also known as The Testament of Moses). It should be noted that:

Praise for Deliverance

Sunday, 7th March 2021

Readings: Leviticus 14; Psalms 115, 116; 2 Corinthians 8, 9

Our Psalms readings are in the fifth section of the book of Psalms which includes Psalms 107 to 150. These final 43 Psalms cover, in summary, many of the earlier themes contained in the previous 107 Psalms.

“Israel’s Place in the World”

Monday, 1st March 2021

Reading: Matthew 19:23-30                                                                                   

The Bible tells us that before the Lord Jesus Christ returns the earth will be the same as it was in Noah’s day prior to the destruction by the flood. People will be totally occupied with the affairs of this life and the earth will be full of violence. Not only do we see much personal violence today but also war and the potential for war in many parts of the world.

Moses my Servant [1]

Monday, 1st March 2021

Reading: Psalms 90,91

Moses was not only a notable and ever-present figure in the Scriptures but he was also a very remarkable servant of the Lord God. Depending on our personalities and inclinations we find particular encouragement in certain people we meet in Scripture. The Lord Jesus is of course the finest example of all human virtues, but sometimes we crave the company of one more like us; one who shared our weaknesses, our sins, our failures. We want to see the grace of God in action, to know that we also can receive His grace. For this I choose Moses. This study is not chronological in any sense but rather selects comments and events which illuminate Moses as the servant of the Lord.

The Building Site

Sunday, 28th February 2021

Readings: Leviticus 3, 4; Psalm 104; 1 Corinthians 12, 13

This may seem to be a strange subject for an exhortation, but I want to talk about a building site. For many months near to where we live, they were building a new housing estate. We would wake each morning to the sound of heavy machinery and shouting voices. When we walked past what had previously been a farmer’s field there was now, frankly, a mess. There was mud everywhere, equipment scattered about, scaffolding, piles of bricks, cement mixers churning away, workers in yellow hard hats; it was chaotic and looked terrible.
