The Heart of a Shepherd

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The attitude of a true shepherd of God contains the same underlying wisdom, which also enables the leading of the Spirit to fulfill its work. To be dedicated towards these principles is well pleasing to Christ, because it imitates the same disciplines and efforts that he made for us. Many fail to grasp what Christ wants from us, because their lives are filled with those things that God has given them, as opposed to those things that we can do for him. It is the difference between giving and taking, between being mature and childish (the difference between being one who has moved from the milk of the word to the meat of the word).

Preparing The Way Of The Lord

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The kingdom of God doesn’t have a flashing neon sign over the entrance gate, nor does it have clearly lit street signs leading to it. The way of God is hidden from all men, because it is not discerned through the natural senses. The application of sight, hearing, touch, etc, reveal nothing. The way to God is a spiritually discerned path and can only be found through the instructions given by God’s people. The right instructions bring the right results.

When Good Men Do Nothing

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

There is only one reason why evil prevails in a world, where good people outnumber the bad by huge differentials. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the numbers; when the good won’t stand up and fight for what they know is right, then evil prevails. Thus, it stands to reason that if good men do nothing, then evil will prevail more and more.

Children

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

In many ways, God measures our relationship with him, the same way that we care for our children. God wants us to understand what his love is and how strong it is for us... and to live accordingly.

The Power to be Saved

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

When it comes to the things of God, most people have no understanding of what they are dealing with. God is trying to save people from permanent extinction (death), but most are blindly adhering to lifestyles that are more appealing to their human nature. God is not offering a life of permanent denial and abstinence of all pleasures. He is trying to save people from certain death. Our perspective is short term and certainly devoid of any spiritual awareness. Spiritually speaking, the human race is brain dead, they are devoid of any potential and they are powerlessly living out their time; spiritually crippled... awaiting permanent death. On the other hand, God is offering us the power to be saved.

Our Church and What We Stand For

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Our church formed around sixty years ago during one of the early outpourings of the Holy Spirit in Australia. As time went by two distinct types of spirit filled groups formed. Some groups determined that believing or accepting Christ was New Testament salvation and that the anointing of the Holy Spirit was an optional extra. The others believed that the anointing of the Holy Spirit and water baptism was salvation and was evidenced by the prophesied sign of speaking in tongues (both groups adopted a large variety of beliefs, practices and prophetic understandings). Our church adopted the same belief that Peter spoke of on the day of Pentecost.

God's True Rest and Refreshing

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

This prophecy is for the New Testament church... Paul quotes from it in his letter to the Corinthian church. "ISA 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts." There has to be a level of maturity and intelligent, yet willing acceptance, before the knowledge of God can become clear and effective. No effective growth can come unless the basics are clear!

Walking In The Spirit

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Many people don’t know what it to be filled with the Spirit and of those who are filled with the spirit, even fewer understand what it means to walk in the spirit.
