The prodigal and the elder son – Dick Hussey

Auchenheath Christian Fellowship 21-8-2016

Main features of this parable: true repentance and the Father’s great love, but extended to the often overlooked part of the elder son, SO NEAR, YET SO FAR – not knowing Father’s heart at all, I Corinthians 15: 34 pinpoints very vividly this possibility. They were baptized believer s who had received the ministry of the apostle Paul for over two years, spoke in tongues, etc. and yet, some of them DID NOT KNOW GOD.


The love of Christ constrains us to live not unto ourselves, but unto Him Who died for us and rose again. (2nd. Corinthians 5:14’15)

However, for those lukewarm or halfhearted there is the solemn warning contained in Luke 12:47-48

when faced with the Judgement Seat of Christ. This is illustrated very graphically with a description of the Chambers of Stripes.

This ministry was given in Tralee Christian Centre, Ireland, on Friday 25th and Sunday 27th September 2015 and part of the praise and songs of the meetings is included.
