Posted here is the sermon delivered by Br. Maxlin Thomas at Borivali Assembly on 8 January 2017.Passage of Reference: Numbers 19The ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER provided the law of purification to cleanse the Israelites when they come in contact with a dead body. Because of the unfaithfulness of the Israelites, the entire nation witnessed death in their midst on a presumably daily basis. Thus, the entire nation was saddled with dead bodies on the journey towards their Promised Land. The HOLY FATHER foresaw the plight of the nation that was to fall for the next 40 years and, as evidenced throughout the HOLY SCRIPTURES, HE HIMSELF provide the LAW OF PURIFICATION to cleanse the nation from its dead bodies.Our spiritual journey is well highlighted by the journey of the ISRAELITES. and like any Jew, we in our journey constantly are coming in contact with dead bodies. In James 2: 17 & 26, we read our faith without work is dead and in Hebrews 9:13-14 we read of the need to cleanse our conscience from dead works to serve THE LIVING GOD. The message looks at the RED HEIFER and its UNIQUENESS, the PROPHETICAL aspect of the law and its completeness on the CROSS OF CALVARY and finally the WATER OF PURIFICATION and its SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE.MAY THE GOOD LORD LEAD US IN OUR JOURNEY and IN OUR NEED FOR PURIFICATION.This message is given in English and translated into Hindi.

Br. Charlie John brings to our attention 5 important aspects, mentioned of the Temple of God in Jerusalem, when Lord Jesus Christ cleansed it. In the old testament, the Temple of God was materialistic and structural, but in 1 Peter 2:4-6, the church is said to be spiritual. Expounding these 5 fundamental characteristics of the church, Br Charlie exhorts the saints to stay true to the plan of God regarding the church as of follows
1. It is the House of God
2. It is the House of Prayer
3. It is an Holy House

Posted below is the sermon delivered by Br. Phil Coulson at the Maharashtra Prophecy Conference.
Br. Coulson speaks about the change that God intended when He changed Jacob’s name to Israel. It was a transformation of a worm to a prince. But quoting the Scripture from Jeremiah 30, Br. Coulson explains how Jacob’s trouble will be the most painful experience for the nation of Israel. And it will be followed by the millennial reign of Christ, when Israel’s joy will be fulfilled in Him.
Posted below is the sermon delivered by Br. Phil Coulson of Scotland at the Maharashtra Prophecy Conference, 2009.
In this sermon, Br. Coulson highlights the difference between the Lord’s Table (1 Cor 10) and the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor 11) and touches upon the believers’ ministry to angels. While the Lord’s Table represents the spiritual provision we enjoy from God every moment of the day, the Lord’s Supper is a weekly proclamation of the redeeming power of the Lord’s death; much like the annual celebration of the Passover was for Israel. Br. Coulson brings out how the only three visible acts done by Assemblies: Believer’s Baptism, Head Covering of the women, and the Lord’s Supper, are actions that ‘make known the manifold wisdom of God’ to His angels (Eph 3:10, I Cor 11:10). Through this sermon, the Spirit of God mightily uses Br. Coulson to elicit the headship and glory of Christ that pervades the doctrines and practices of His church.

The Sermon is on the attitude a local assembly ought to have when it comes community evangelism. Citing examples of David, Peter, Philip, Paul and the churches at Philippi and Thessalonica, Br K V Simeon presents convincing reasons for the church to be involved in evangelism. God Honors those who confess Him. Gospel is a sacred treasure God has given us which we must share. Every member of the body of Christ in the direction of the head should be giving out the gospel.
