Why Do The Heathen Rage?

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The natural position of 'non or anti-Christians' is to rage against God's laws and principles, despite them giving humanity the best opportunities for a fair and sustainable life. The more they rage, the worse life becomes for the free world, with one failure leading to another. Sadly, yet predictably; the human race never learns from its mistakes. Pride and ignorance always lead to the failures that past generations also suffered.

Believe the Science

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

We are continually pressured to 'believe the science', even though many scientists disagree with each other. Quite often, the term 'science' is used when a political or religious outcome is desired. It would be more convincing to see the evidence than respond to an appeal to authority, which is a false and unproven argument.

When The Wheels Fall Off

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

'When the wheels fall off' originated from overloading, or abusing a work vehicle to the extent that it breaks down and is no longer useable. The west was built on the principles contained within the ten commandments, despite the weaknesses of humanity (a certain level of weakness and failure was already factored in to the system). However, as they have been further weakened, we have been overloaded and failures are appearing everywhere. It's the abuses of the principles that leads to failure, not the principles themselves. The bible reveals many of humanities worst failures thousands of years before they have finally come about.

A History of Isolation and Opportunity

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The Bible contains many stories of people who needed to go into lockdown to escape a variety of threats coming upon the earth. On all of these occasions, preparations and warnings were made to all people; offering everyone a way of escape. There was always a great need for God's people to listen carefully to his survival guidelines. Some obvious examples were Noah and the ark, the Passover when the tenth plague destroyed the first born, also the modern spirit filled church is a vessel of separation for escaping spiritual death.

Pharoah Challengs the Word of God

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

ife everlasting for Egypt's pharaohs (god-kings) was the sustaining principle of Egyptian civilisation. In an ancient religious text, a deceased king asks of the creator-god, "O Atum, what is my duration of life?" And the deity replies, "Though art destined for millions and millions of years, a lifetime of millions."To supply their necessities for a lifetime of millions, the kings designed tombs and mortuary temples that would last forever. A common understanding for tomb in fact meant "house of eternity." The people of Egypt willingly laboured to build these monuments for their dead rulers, believing that, as gods, the pharaoh had to be properly provided for and favoured.

The Law of the Spirit - Part 1 General

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

When we naturally obey a law (be it criminal, civil, scientific or moral), then we can be unaware of the effects of the law. But when we deliberately or inadvertently break a law, there can be serious consequences. Thus, it follows that the breaking of a law brings results that make the law (whether known or not), the dominant controller of our life at that time. Being ignorant of these laws doesn't alter the outcome... we are exposed to pain,failure and even death. These laws exist and have control over us whether we know them or not. Likewise, there is another law, more important than all of the above... Spiritual Laws are usually ignored by the great majority, because there is no immediate or visible consequence for breaking them.

The Intercessor

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The role of the intercessor is to petition God on the behalf of other people in prayer. The whole bible story, is a book of ongoing intercession on behalf of human failings and weaknesses by chosen people during troubling times. This principle is far more effective and numerous, than what we might originally think. Moses interceding after smashing the 10 commandment tablets in disgust. EXO 32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: 10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. 11 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, LORD, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? 12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. People can be very frustrating, but we still support the ones that listen.

Controlling the Narrative

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Whoever controls the worlds narrative (topics of discussion), controls the worlds thoughts and speech. Modern journalism is more often about creating the narrative than it is about reporting the facts. This is not surprising when we consider one of the oldest fake narratives on the record.GEN 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. He wanted to control them, not help them.

A History of Betrayal

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The human race has been consistently betrayed by both the spiritual and natural leaders that are supposed to represent them, since the beginning of time. Mankind continues to reject God's eternal purpose for them.

The Are None So Blind

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

In human behaviour, to deny a clear reality (denialism), is the preferred way to avoid a psychologically uncomfortable truth. It is also called 'wilful ignorance'. In the bible, God uses terms like 'blind', 'foolish', 'mockers', etc., for the negative views expressed towards his creation and gospel. JER 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
