How Should We Live?

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

There are numerous interesting promises and blessings relating to salvation, spiritual service and worship. The following is a simple outline of the starting points which all saved people begin their servitude to God. In every other walk of life there are biases that work for and against us, some fair and some unfair, some favourable and many not so much, so. However, the church is not bound by cultural inequalities, nor any other natural imbalances.

Ignorance Is A Choice

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

People are surrounded and overwhelmed by far too many choices in every day life. The amount of information facing everyone is beyond comprehension and increasing at a record level. Modern technology such as smart phones, social media and television; demand consistent and increased attention. There are far too many choices, thus priorities need to be put in place. These choices need to be made on a daily basis...remember, ignorance is a choice as much as any other!! Like eternal life and living an overcoming life, many of the small choices we make, shape our future as well as the important ones. The power of the Holy Spirit opens our eyes enabling us to see far better options.

The Last 500 Years

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The last 500 years of human development have all been possible through the nations that followed and obeyed God's principles, as opposed to political and social agendas. God's plans work for thousands of years, while human endeavours usually fail in the lifetime of the leader. The following points highlight the sudden leap over the last 500 years from the dark ages to unimaginable human achievement and technology.

God is Working

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

God has much to offer the human race and reveals his love and purposes in many ways. He wants us to have a good and happy life, but knows this is not easy when corrupted moral and social choices prevail. Jesus spoke of these opportunities and wanted us to faithfully seek them. He spoke of the coming Holy Spirit and its miraculous ability to not only provide salvation, but to also offer evidence and vastly improve our quality of life. He also gave the power and motivation to spread the Gospel to family, friends and strangers.

This Is How God Works

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

There is so much confusion and unscriptural directions, that many find it difficult to find a power based relationship with God. There are many bible verses that when quoted in isolation, fail to reveal the full strength and power of true salvation. These notes particularly quote the passages that explain how the real power of God is activated. They also detail the true, faith based approach that results in signs, miracles and wonders. It is a shame that most people only hear of Jesus Christ and his love for the world, but never hear of nor see the power that is still available today.

The Only Technique That Works

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

As Jesus revealed the structure of the New Testament, it became clear that it would only work if its basic principles were practiced and maintained. This is the offer that God has made to the world. Salvation is only possible through participating in the sacrifices that Christ suffered for us. The need to repent, be baptized and pray and receive the Holy Spirit, with God's chosen evidence of speaking in tongues... is essential. The following points of spiritual order, amplify the basic acts of faith Christians need to understand and apply.

The Battle For Your Mind

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Satan, the great deceiver, is always offering a better deal than God. He is always attacking the credibility of the church, their faith and always trying to undermine and trip them up... often using the scriptures out of context to undermine their faith. This deceit is quite evident when dealing with the forgiveness of sin and remains a stumbling block for many spirit filled people, who hold confusing and often contradictory beliefs relating to this topic. Many struggle through a false salvation model, while the true and effective one is often beyond their knowledge. The aim of this presentation is to set some clear principles that hold true and will stand the test of doubt or criticism... freeing you truly from the law of sin and death. For the church...our task is to correct the errors relating to God and Christian living and reveal the true salvation God offers.

Trending Prophecy

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Let us never lose sight that the clock is counting down to the final disasters that force the return of Christ. Most of the known world will end, but the chosen of God will be saved: here are a few related prophecies.

Of Sin and Salvation

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The concept of sin and salvation is only relevant if the biblical viewpoint of a purposeful creation is considered. If the human race is merely accidental and temporary, then our existence is without purpose and our life would be pointless. Should evolution be the source of humanity, then life, love and happiness would also be totally meaningless. On this basis, we will promote the scriptural viewpoint, because it is the only approach that gives meaning to life and its values. Thus, the bible defines sin as... a breach of God's purposes, either spiritual or natural. Life is a choice (we clothe, feed and protect ourselves) and likewise eternal life is also a choice that is equally available. This is where the Gospel of Jesus Christ comes into play.

Fake News

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

All the recent talk about 'fake news' serves to remind us of the ongoing battle between truth and error. Not only have scriptural principles been corrupted by religious compromise... almost all forms of news and education have become vehicles for ideological and/or political promotion and point scoring. Most news that has any form of political content will be skewed to suit the promoters or owners viewpoint.
