Welcome to Light on the Rock

So glad to have you all come and visit our FREE website, where we have over 125 sermons and lots of short articles or blogs (see LOTR Blogs).   Brothers and sisters from 70 countries come to this site.  Welcome to all of you.  Many of you visit us from China, Russia, the Philippines, the UK, Italy, France, Canada, Australia and of course, the USA and dozens of other countries.  Don’t keep us a secret. Tell your friends.  We worship our dear Father (whom I often call Abba), God Most High and His Son – Yeshua the Messiah, more commonly known as Jesus Christ.  We keep the sabbath and live by faith in His grace, as He transforms our lives in the Messiah through the Holy Spirit.

Let’s look ahead at our great and high calling. We don’t want to look back.  Let’s come together and each do our part in the body of Christ. Feel free to contact me. 

--Your brother in our Savior,  Philip.

This is a timely message to hear before the Passover and the footwashing. (Given originally in 2004, its message is even more timely today.)

What is your most important life goal? Jesus calls it the very definition of eternal life (John 17:3). Paul called it his life goal. Many speak of "knowing the Lord", and yet Jesus warned He may say He doesn't know them. Find out more about this topic, so timely with the Passover season.

Listen to part 1 first. Last time we identified David's Tabernacle on Mt. Zion as distinct from the "other" Tabernacle at Gibeon. TWO tabernacles at the same time!

Learn what this could mean to our New Covenant church services.

Jesus cleansed the temple, proclaiming it should be the House of Prayer. WE are now the temple of God's spirit but are we God's House of Prayer - or a "temple" that has closed its door and fallen into disrepair? Consecration and rededication of our "temple" may be in order if we want our lives - "God's House of Prayer"- to be to His glory.

This message discusses the many phrases used in the Bible to describe "the gospel', including the gospel of the kingdom of God, of Christ, of grace, of salvation, of peace, and many others.

Few topics can be as important as this one and this message may challenge your assumptions, regardless of which church you have been attending. Philip stresses the need for a COMPLETE definition of "the gospel".
