The Spiritual Forces of Evil, Part One

Even as an old man, Daniel listened to God and sought His face as he tried to understand the ongoing conflicts in the world. The fearful, frail prophet, still faithful to his Lord, was shown that earthly struggles reflect a greater conflict in the heavenly realms. In this message by Alistair Begg, we are challenged to follow Daniel’s example by remaining faithful to God’s Kingdom purposes as long as He gives us life, realizing we may not see the outcome until we see Him in glory.

The Spiritual Forces of Evil, Part Two

In Daniel 10, Daniel received a devastating vision, one that reduced him to an awe-filled fear. As Alistair Begg walks us through the prophetic message, we are reminded of God’s sovereign reign over the past and future events of mankind. Conflicts on earth mimic spiritual conflicts in heavenly places, but despite the raging battles, victory is assured to those who wear the full armor of Christ.

Good News, Great Joy

What is the purpose behind the celebration of Christmas? For those who are in Christ, its meaning rests solely on the birth of Jesus. Based on his own careful investigation, Luke’s account of the birth of Christ is more than a heartwarming story – it is true, and it is life-changing. It is good news, and it brings great joy to a world darkened by sin.

In these sermons Alistair Begg draws our attention to the truth of the nativity story. This story, in some ways simple and in others so profound, is at the heart of understanding ... More

Daniel's Prayer

When Daniel prayed for his people he focused on God's holiness, recognizing Israel's sin. In this message, Alistair Begg explains that a proper understanding of God's righteous character will result in true repentance on our part, both as individuals and corporately in the local church. As we mourn over our sin and failings, our attention is drawn to God's provision for sin in the Gospel and we rejoice in the salvation available to us in Jesus Christ.

Gabriel and the 70 Weeks

The vision recorded in Daniel 9 was given to Daniel for wisdom, encouragement, and understanding. Although interpretation of these challenging verses differs, Alistair Begg offers helpful clarification: what God has purposed, He will accomplish, and, ultimately, Scripture points to Christ. The One who has ascended will come again in great power, and as we have believed, so we must tell others.

Faith Under Fire

Many of us have heard the familiar stories of Daniel from childhood: brave, committed, and obedient, Daniel held to his convictions, interpreted dreams, and faced the lions’ den. But does our familiarity extend to the real hero of the story?

In this series examining Daniel’s faith under the fire of trial, Alistair Begg explains that at the heart of these familiar stories is a good and sovereign God who works powerfully for the good of His people and the glory of His Name. We can be encouraged that the same God who reigned over the events in Daniel’s ... More 

I Take You

There is no arena where the Christian worldview so drastically contrasts secular society than that of marriage. Although there is confusion in our culture regarding marriage, Scripture expresses the solemnity by which couples should enter into this covenant. As we turn to the Bible to discover God’s purpose and plan for marriage, Alistair Begg reminds us that this ordinance should matter to all people because it pertains to the very nature of our humanity.

Loved By God

Paul wrote to encourage the church in Thessalonica with the conviction that God works powerfully through His Word and His Church to further the Gospel. Alistair Begg reminds us that genuine conversion always results in radical change. When Christians display transformed lives and proclaim the Word that we have received wherever God has placed us, the Gospel advances to the glory of God.


An Encouraging Word

Following Paul's example, Alistair Begg encourages listeners with an essential foundation of our hope in Christ – the grace of God. Christians have been united to Christ and to His people by grace, and although salvation in Christ is by faith alone, our faith is never alone. Genuine Christian belief is marked by works of faith, costly love, and steadfast hope. Understanding that our hope comes from the grace of God alone should establish in us a response of genuine gratitude.


Alive In Christ, Volume 2

The challenge for today’s churches to remain rooted in the truth of the Gospel is not new. In fact, the church in Colossae during the days of the Apostle Paul was influenced by many worldly falsehoods, including superstition, mythology and even simple error in doctrinal translation. In his letter to the Colossians, Paul imposes two key messages which are as applicable today as they were then. First, he re-confirms that all things were created and hold together through Jesus Christ and that we must walk with Him and hold steadfast to our faith in His saving power. Paul then provides ...
