Hosea's Prophecy:
( Series Incomplete )
 Prophecy of Hosea (01-29-14 / 90 Min.)

[ WMA ] (5.62 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 20.3 mb ) -alt-

Prophecy of Hosea finds brother Bruce Howard from Australia teaching the Old Testament text until the 41 minute mark when Pastor Visser joins in the conversation to add his commentary. The latter half of this broadcast is a relaxed interview dealing with several current events and obvious imposters like sergeant William Finck, "no Satan" Mark Downey and the "Mad Dog" of Granby, Missouri - Martin Lindstedt.
 
Joel's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Sifted Among Nations (04-22-12 / 44 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.74 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.92 mb ) -alt-

Sifted Among Nations uses three minor prophets ( Amos, Joel and Micah ) to explain the events surrounding the "Day of the Lord." In this uplifting sermon we contrast the diverse rewards that both the chosen seed of Israel's race and Satan's wicked progeny receive from Yahweh. Judgment Day is a period of destruction thus scriptural imagery of the lifeless earth is presented within this analysis.
 Joel 1:1-10 (09-14-16 / 45 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.1 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #1) is an introductory sermon providing a brief background into this minor prophet's importance and how his teachings relate to a future "Day of Pentecost." Joel is one of the more poetical prophets because his dismal prophecies can be overlaid to both advents of Yahshua and straightforwardly deal with invading "locust armies" sent against Israel which also represent demons in Revelation 9:3.
 Joel 1:10-20 (09-18-16 / 47 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.93 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.6 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #2) continues our look at the minor prophet by explaining the difference between a Gentile ("goy") and the beast of the field ("behemoth") which are both addressed in chapter one. Also discussed in this sermon is Yahweh's timetable regarding one day with Him being a thousand years to man (II Peter 3:5) and the famine in the end times being for the authentic Word of God (Amos 8:11).
 Joel 2:1-11 (09-21-16 / 48 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.99 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.8 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #3) confirms the invading locust armies of Joel's vision have a king known as the Son of Perdition or Antichrist (II Thessalonians 2:3-4 & Revelation 9:11). Who exactly is Abaddon? What does Apollyon mean? This sermon resumes our investigation of the minor prophet's book by comparing the Garden of Eden to the destruction left by destroying soldiers during the battle of Armageddon.
 Joel 2:11-19 (09-25-16 / 45 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.81 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.2 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #4) explains the four stages of the locust armies that Yahweh unleashes upon Israelite people who forget Him. Questions are answered in this sermon! Also clarified is how Eve was sexually seduced by the serpent (II Corinthians 11:2-4) and how Paul taught against the rapture doctrine because the Antichrist "king" obviously comes BEFORE the Day of the Lord (II Thessalonians 2:9-10).
 Joel 2:20-32 (09-28-16 / 48 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.03 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.9 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #5) mostly deals with the destruction of Yahweh's enemies before "the Day of the Lord" (or return of Christ). This sermon compares the devastation of the locust armies to God's ability to do greater works during His restoration of the Israelite people. Our Father says "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh and your daughters shall prophecy" therefore this discourse attempts to explain why.
 Joel 3:1-9 (10-02-16 / 46 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.90 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.5 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #6) uses the Gospel teachings of Yahshua and the book of Daniel to explain that the spurious messiah comes before the second advent showing "signs and wonders" to deceive the elect. This continuation of our look at the minor prophet Joel proves that only a remnant among Israel will overcome the locust armies and demonstrates exactly who sends this plague upon Jerusalem for judgment.
 Joel 3:9-17 (10-05-16 / 44 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.76 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.0 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #7) explains why when Yahshua returns it's equated to "treading a winepress" due to Him being baptized (or fully immersed) in the blood of His enemies. Where will Christ descend? Why is He considered "dipped in blood" (Revelation 19:13)? This sermon showcases the judgment of God against heathen nations and them being forever cast away from the people of Israel and city of Jerusalem.
 Joel 3:17-21 (10-09-16 / 44 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.74 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.94 mb ) -alt-

Joel (Part #8) concludes our eight-part series on the minor prophet Joel by explaining the material blessings restored to the Israelite saints who rule with Yahweh in the Kingdom. This final sermon uses Ezekiel 47:1-12 to explain the "rivers of Judah" that separate the heathen from the new Jerusalem where Yahweh dwells as "the Lord is there" (Adonai-Shammah). Updates regarding CPM are towards the end.
 
Obadiah's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Vision of Obadiah (10-31-08 / 57 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.39 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 12.9 mb ) -alt-

Vision of Obadiah | This special Samhain broadcast called "Vision of Obadiah" is unlike any other released by Covenant People's Ministry! Aside from the "Death Metal" Christian music and peculiar sound effects, this exposition is a full study into the downfall of our Edomite enemy during the “Day of the Lord.” This fashionable hour-long sermon covers the entire Book of Obadiah and the fifth chapter of Enoch.
 Obadiah 1:1-11 (10-19-16 / 33 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.05 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 7.42 mb ) -alt-

Obadiah (Part #1) begins our two-part examination of the minor prophet by establishing the background of Esau and his cursed Edomite offspring. Yahweh hates Edom and loves Israel! Why? Obadiah's intention was to condense several prophecies concerning Esau (and his many sins against his brother Jacob) during "the Day of the Lord" so faithful Christians can be assured our enemy will be destroyed.
 Obadiah 1:11-21 (10-23-16 / 36 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.23 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 8.07 mb ) -alt-

Obadiah (Part #2) concludes our two-part examination of the minor prophet's condemnation of the Edomites by explaining several more reasons Yahweh must destroy them and who exactly He uses to accomplish their demolition. Esau attempted to murder his brother Jacob / Israel thus his attempts at thwarting the Will of Yahweh is rewarded with flame and fire in "the great and terrible Day of the Lord."
 
Jonah's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Jonah: Reluctant Prophet (Part #1) (12-06-15 / 42 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.61 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.46 mb ) -alt-

Jonah: Reluctant Prophet (Part #1) provides background on the book itself and clarification on the leading two chapters. This first of two sermons intended to prove the similarities between the actions of Jonah to Christ is inspired by His Words in Matthew 12:40; "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah." We describe this sign.
 Jonah: Reluctant Prophet (Part #2) (12-13-15 / 42 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.61 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.46 mb ) -alt-

Jonah: Reluctant Prophet (Part #2) completes our study on the minor prophet by explaining the transition of "whales" from masculine to feminine and naturally provides the timeless moral of his story. This second of two sermons proves that Jonah was a prefigure of the coming Redeemer thus genuine Israelites could recognize Yahshua's approach depending on their familiarity of this gloomy narrative.
 
Nahum's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Nahum 1:1-11 (04-17-16 / 46 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.85 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.3 mb ) -alt-

Nahum (Part #1) provides background on the minor prophet and why he felt compelled to bring his "burden" to the unfaithful Ninevites. This series proves Jonah was correct in his warnings thus this introductory sermon explains several undeniable attributes of Yahweh like jealousy and rage (in addition to being fair and just). We also clarify several reasons Nahum makes no promises within his written prophecies.
 Nahum 1:11-2:6 (04-20-16 / 42 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.62 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.49 mb ) -alt-

Nahum (Part #2) continues our study into the book of the minor prophet by establishing the Assyrian is "the rod of Yahweh's anger" from Isaiah 10:5 and more. Is this flesh ruler a type of Satan? Was Jonah correct in refusing to warn Nineveh? This sermon proves that while God will destroy a majority of faithless Ninevites according to this prophecy a remnant will be spared amongst His chosen Judean people.
 Nahum 2:7-3:4 (06-08-16 / 48 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.98 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.8 mb ) -alt-

Nahum (Part #3) continues our coverage of Nahum's prophecies pertaining to the ancient Ninevites. This segment confirms that Yahweh appoints both wicked and righteous rulers thus "the Assyrian" (also known as Satan) is sent to destroy the queen of Nineveh. An overview of lions in scripture is provided and some false gods are reviewed because this led up to the merchant city finally being annihilated.
 Nahum 3:4-3:19 (06-15-16 / 48 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.98 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 10.8 mb ) -alt-

Nahum (Part #4) completes our line-by-line analysis of the minor prophet's warnings against the Ninevites by comparing the similarities of the queen of Nineveh to the whore of Babylon mentioned in Revelation. Can women preach or run for president? This fourth and final sermon on the book of Nahum examines Populous No (Ammon) and explains how witches and locusts usually represent demons in the Bible.
 

Habakkuk's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )

 Habakkuk 1:1-1:10 (12-14-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Habakkuk (Part #1) begins our study into the darker prophesies of the so-called "minor prophet" Habakkuk. This forty minute sermon scrutinizes Habakkuk's prayer against Israel and Yahweh's Judgment of their harsh Babylonian dispersion and captivity. Identity Christians can only learn how to survive in the coming "rebuilt Babylon" by learning the morality of Yahweh though this same prophetical book.
 Habakkuk 1:10-2:4 (12-17-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Habakkuk (Part #2) discovers Yahweh's authentic "character" by contrasting it to that of Israel's Babylonian captors. In this forty minute sermon the minor prophet Habakkuk is instructed to “write the vision for an appointed end time.” This means that today's Identity Christians are able to differentiate the enemies of Christ by studying this hostile prophecy against them and also through faithful living.
 Habakkuk 2:4-2:20 (12-21-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Habakkuk (Part #3) examines the Lord's final Judgment against four distinct classes of sinful man; the greedy, the covetous, the drunk and the idolater. This forty minute sermon confirms that ( during rebuilt Babylon ) Yahweh's "ultimate purpose" is that “the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God” as opposed to sinful and corrupt man being served as lowercase "gods" or (music) idols themselves.
 Habakkuk 2:20-3:19 (12-28-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Habakkuk (Part #4) concludes our series on the prophetic visions of the "minor prophet" Habakkuk. This final 40 minute sermon covers "the prayer of Habakkuk" and examines Yahweh's ultimate Judgment against several foreign races and godless atheists. The most import aspect of this final part is that it teaches Christians how to avoid the numerous plagues and curses covered in this four-part study.
 Woe to the Greedy (11-01-15 / 29 Min.)

[ WMA ] (1.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 6.48 mb ) -alt-

Woe to the Greedy scrutinizes the outcome of covetous men during Yahweh's judgment and proves there is no position for the egotist amongst the Saints. What does "I shall not want" mean? This brief sermon revisits the second chapter of Habakkuk to establish it's not the Will of Christ that His chosen Israelites work "to build cities with blood" when our Heavenly Father has freely given us everything we need.
 
Zephaniah's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Zephaniah 1:1-1:13 (11-23-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Zephaniah (Part #1) opens our study into the writings of the "minor prophet" Zephaniah. This 40 minute sermon establishes that Zephaniah spoke about “the day of the Lord” (or the return of Israel's King) by examining God's end-time Judgment against rebuilt Babylon. In this sermon Yahweh candidly attacks each false "god" by name and restores this round earth to its former glory using blazing fire.
 Zephaniah 1:13-2:8 (11-26-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Zephaniah (Part #2) continues teaching on the day of the Lord by examining Yahweh's personal time table. Pastor Visser quotes the Ferrar Fenton Bible to establish the "nearness" of Judgment Day and explores five precise admonitions to Judah. This 40 minute segment closes by proving the incestuous children of Moab and Ammon (through “vexed Lot”) will be exterminated for being our enemy.
 Zephaniah 2:8-3:7 (11-30-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Zephaniah (Part #3) continues exploring Yahweh's Judgment against the offspring of Lot by his own daughters and completely examines the state of the children of Israel during their apostasy. Many are serving and worshipping the world itself prior to “the great and terrible day of the Lord” so this forty minute sermon explains God's hasty judgment against two of our enemies; Assyria and Ethiopia.
 Zephaniah 3:7-3:20 (12-03-08 / 40 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.51 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.08 mb ) -alt-

Zephaniah (Part #4) completes our series on the writings of the "minor prophet" Zephaniah. This final 40 minute sermon examines numerous classes of rebels that are “cut off” during Armageddon and the restoration of Israel prior to the establishment of Yahweh's Kingdom. Like usual, this concluding segment features a brief overview of upcoming articles and expositions from Covenant People's Ministry.
 Who is Moab and Ammon? (11-04-15 / 42 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.60 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.42 mb ) -alt-

Who is Moab and Ammon? provides a complete overview of the Moabites and Ammonites by covering their creation through incest by Lot and their withstanding the Israelites during their tribal wanderings. Who is Baal-Peor and what are temple prostitutes?

Haggai's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Haggai 1:1-11 (08-28-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.77 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.6 mb ) -alt-

Haggai (Part #1) begins our three-part examination on the minor prophet Haggai by proving his prophecies of oppression were due to the Israelites refusing to rebuild Yahweh's temple. "Consider your ways!" sayeth the Lord of Hosts! This introductory sermon provides a short background on the prophet Haggai and his tome before explaining how his cheerless predictions fit within Biblical history.
 Haggai 1:11-2:9 (08-31-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.77 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.6 mb ) -alt-

Haggai (Part #2) continues our investigation of Haggai's prophecies by proving the minor prophet was only able to resurrect a small remnant in Jerusalem to rebuild Solomon's temple. Yahweh showed the slothful Israelites mercy during Ezra-Nehemiah according to the covenant made with Abraham and promises to "dwell within the temple and be glorified" only if His people work towards Haggai's goal.
 Haggai 2:9-23 (09-04-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.77 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.6 mb ) -alt-

Haggai (Part #3) concludes our three-part study on the minor prophet by explaining why Zerubbabel the governor of Judea will be made as a "signet" during Yahshua's second advent. What does Solomon's temple have to do with Christianity today? The main focus of Haggai was putting Yahweh and His house first in our lives thus this final sermon proves God chooses to bless Israelites that obey Him.
 Ye Are The Temple! (09-07-16 / 31 Min.)

[ WMA ] (1.91 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 6.91 mb ) -alt-

Ye Are The Temple! completely proves that the Holy Bible teaches the race of Israel comprise the temple under the New Covenant. This sermon is a continuation of the CPM series on Haggai the minor prophet. Yahweh nor Christ will be found specifically in buildings made with men's hands but rather dwell amongst the Saints that overcome the blasphemy of "them that say they are Jews but do lie."
 
Malachi's Prophecy:
( Series Complete )
 Book of Malachi (06-15-11 / 53 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.32 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 12.0 mb ) -alt-

Book of Malachi provides an overview of the minor prophet's writings with supplementary passages from John's Gospel and Micah 2:1-4. How does this final Old Testament book "bridge the gap" into the New Covenant? Why does Yahweh hate Esau and his descendants? How was Christ able to feed the masses with five loaves and two fish? This amateur collection of shorts attempts to answer these questions.
 Malachi 1:1-14 (08-07-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.7 mb ) -alt-

Malachi (Part #1) begins a four-part study on the minor prophet by demonstrating Yahweh abhors Esau and his Edomite offspring forever (Romans 9:13) and the prophecies Malachi gives are against sinful Israelites and their priests. Are Christians allowed to hate like our King? This opening segment provides background on the book and confirms Yahweh will curse all deceivers that despise His sacred Name.
 Malachi 2:1-14 (08-10-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.7 mb ) -alt-

Malachi (Part #2) continues our examination of the final book of the Old Testament proving the rebuilt temple remained polluted even after Christ "cleansed" it five hundred years later. What are the views of God concerning divorce? Can the blood of he-goats truly cleanse us from sin? This sermon deals with six disputes of Yahweh against His Israelites confirming the final Levitical covenant had been corrupted.
 Malachi 2:14-3:8 (08-14-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.7 mb ) -alt-

Malachi (Part #3) looks at the specific sins of Judean priests during the time of Malachi like whoring after foreign women and claiming Yahweh approves of sin. Are there God robbers amongst us? Do phony priests call good evil and vise versa? This third sermon scrutinizes the coming of the spirit of Elijah being John the Baptist who offered "water" as a step to overcome the "fire" of His return (Matthew 11:14).
 Malachi 3:8-4:6 (08-17-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.7 mb ) -alt-

Malachi (Part #4) concludes our four-part examination of the minor prophet by scrutinizing "God robbers" who steal tithes and offerings from Yahweh. Is the law of Moses now obsolete? What are the specific sins of Israel? This final sermon inspects the closing prophecies given to the Israelites before the coming of John the Baptist (the spirit of Elijah) and our very Redeemer (messenger of the new covenant).
 Esau Have I Hated (08-21-16 / 43 Min.)

[ WMA ] (2.67 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 9.69 mb ) -alt-

Esau Have I Hated covers highlights from the book of the minor prophet Malachi by establishing Yahweh still loves Jacob (the Israelites) and literally hates Esau (the Edomites). There are false prophets among our people! God will curse the deceiver and his offspring! This sermon provides a brief overview of the Old Testament book and attempts to show many parallels to the four New Covenant Gospels.
 Jacob Have I Loved (10-15-16 / 58 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.63 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.1 mb ) -alt-

Jacob Have I Loved explains why Esau was hated by Yahweh and proves his brother Jacob was fancied because he contended for the birthright. Was trickery involved in Jacob's blessing? What did Esau do to anger God? This broadcast of The Covenant Gathering aired on Euro Folk Radio and uses the non-canonized books of Jasher 27:8-14, 2nd Esdras 6:9 and Jubilees 19:10-23 to verify Edom is cursed.
 
Prophecies of Christ:

[ WMA ] (3.32 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 12.0 mb ) -alt-

 Prophecies of Life (07-27-16 / 50 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.15 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 11.4 mb ) -alt-

Prophecies of Life examines four specific prophecies pertaining to the life of Christ from Zechariah 9:9, Psalms 35:11/41:9 and Isaiah 53:7. Was Judas Iscariot foretold to betray Christ? Why did Jesus refuse to defend Himself from wrongful accusations? Why did He ride an ass into Jerusalem to overcome? These answers are provided in this peaceful continuation of CPM's "Prophecies of Christ" audio series.
 Prophecies of Death (07-31-16 / 56 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.53 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 12.8 mb ) -alt-

Prophecies of Death inspects six specific Old Testament forecasts relating to the Crucifixion of Yahshua mostly from Psalms 22:1-31/34:20 and Isaiah 53:9-12. Why was Jesus crucified alongside robbers? This sermon explains that Christ was to have His hands and feet pierced, His bones would not be broken, He thirsted from the cross and was eventually buried in the tomb of the rich ALL in fulfillment of prophecy.
 Prophecies of Return (08-03-16 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.79 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.7 mb ) -alt-

Prophecies of Return looks at several predictions related to the second advent of Christ and the tribulation of the Israelite saints before "the great and terrible day of the Lord."

What exactly is a prophet? Are there any yet to come? This Covenant Gathering broadcast showcases the oneness of Yahshua and Yahweh by looking at what Shepherd truly gathers the sheep.
 

Shepherd of Hermas Series:

[ WMA ] (3.72 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.4 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #1 provides a brief overview of The Shepherd of Hermas then explains the first 24 verses of the text.

This lively segment also discusses the former slave Hermas having visions regarding his yearning of the bondsmaid Rhoda and his latter visitation from her.

 Hermas I (Visions) #2 (05-19-13 / 60 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.75 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.5 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #2 is the long-awaited sequel to the first part covering The Shepherd of Hermas 1:24-2:7. Pastor Visser provides a brief background into the text itself and current audio series before providing lively commentary on the meaning of this extraordinary vision. This sermon on creation finds "the lady" granting Hermas exclusive permission to copy her book (of Life) before it's snatched away.

 Hermas I (Visions) #3 (11-20-13 / 58 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.61 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.0 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #3 continues our slowest-running (and yet most anticipated) series to date by further examining the gnostic text of The Shepherd of Hermas 2:8-20. In this relaxed segment the Shepherd is commanded to get his personal life in order before being provided the answers to the book he saw briefly and is also told that only through God's Son Jesus can he join the holy angels in judgment.
 Hermas I (Visions) #4 (05-28-14 / 59 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.69 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.3 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #4 finds the metaphorical "church lady" equipping Hermas with further orders to the literal church yet he mistakes her for a Sybil (or sorceress). This sermon resumes our time-delayed series examining the gnostic text and further attempts to show its similarities to so-called canonized scripture. Covering The Shepherd of Hermas 2:21-37 this broadcast warns all Christians against bitterness.
 Hermas I (Visions) #5 (11-12-14 / 67 Min.)

[ WMA ] (4.20 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 15.2 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #5 begins the shepherd's third vision by explaining the differences between the right and left sides of Yahweh and which classes of Israelites are considered Saints. This fifth sermon in our longest-running series covers The Shepherd of Hermas 3:1-24 and the various manifestations of the womanly "church" in each era. This broadcast proves that only Yahweh God is worthy of man's "fear."
 Hermas I (Visions) #6 (05-17-15 / 71 Min.)

[ WMA ] (4.45 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 16.1 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #6 attempts to clarify the shepherd's vision on the building of an ivory tower (representing the Body of Christ or "church") by the hands of six angels. Perhaps one of the most well-known stories of this Gnostic text this lengthy sermon in our longest-running series ever attempts to show how canonized and accepted Biblical texts are mostly harmonious with the revelations bestowed upon Hermas.
 Hermas I (Visions) #7 (11-18-15 / 57 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.58 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 12.9 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #7 showcases each class of "stone" or person that comprises the ivory tower of the shepherd's third vision. This sermon covers Shepherd of Hermas 3:51-72 but was regrettably recorded during a rain storm rendering sections of this lecture almost inaudible. However to withhold release of this discourse ( even with flaws ) would go against the "spirit" of this long-running gnostic CPM series.
 Hermas I (Visions) #8 (05-15-16 / 65 Min.)

[ WMA ] (4.07 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 14.7 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #8 allows the "church lady" to continue explaining the final three classes of stones that are cast away from the ivory tower of her vision. This sermon in our longest-running series highlights the seven Christian virtues (which are opposite of the seven deadly sins) explaining how each is the mother of another. This lecture proves the elect are saved by faith or the grandmother of all moralities.
 Hermas I (Visions) #9 (11-13-16 / 59 Min.)

[ WMA ] (3.68 mb) [ MP3 ] ( 13.3 mb ) -alt-

Hermas I (Visions) #9 continues our longest-running Gnostic series by explaining the three faces of "the holy church" and how they relate to our Christian walks. The ancient prophet Hermas was doubtful! Are you? This sermon covers The Shepherd of Hermas 3:101-4:9 which ends the third vision of the ivory tower being built and commences the fourth concerning "the great beast" leviathan and his locust armies.
 Hermas I (Visions) #10 (05-20-17 / 59 Min.)

Hermas I (Visions) #10 completes Hermas' forth vision and his first Gnostic book entirely. This Covenant Gathering broadcast covers The Shepherd of Hermas 4:9-4:29 which deals mostly with persecution of the church in every era yet finally finds "the shepherd" becoming a full-fledged prophet with specific instructions to educate the elect of Yahweh. Possibly the finale to our longest-running series ever!
