The Start And The Building Of God's Church Pt2

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 19/6/2022

Once filled with the Holy Spirit we need to make the second greatest choice of our lives. We need to be just as diligent in prayer and action to stay saved as we did to get saved. This is always our choice and our choice alone. We have already used bible examples to disprove many myths and false doctrines about salvation... we also rejoice because we are shown how to use God's power, wisdom and obedience to remain in our saved state.

The Start And The Building Of God's Church

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 12/6/2022

Here is a brief summary of the purpose and content of the books of the New Testament. The Gospel books... The historical, prophetic and spiritual record of Jesus, the son of God... his words, his deeds and promises... death and resurrection. The book of Acts... The only detailed accounts of the founding of the church and of full scriptural salvation. The first history and missionary journeys of those who preached the gospel of Jesus Christ, how the spirit was recognised by miracles signs and wonders, and the opposition they faced. The Epistles... Letters and some prophecies to the churches/leaders in various stages of development. They deal with all life issues and how to maintain faith and sound doctrine through the power of God... for everyone.

How Old Was Timothy

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 10/6/2022

How old was Timothy when this scripture was written? 1Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in faith, in purity. It is falsely assumed that Timothy was in his late teens or early twenties when these verses were written, but a quick check of bible chronology, and the established dates of the writings of the following letters, give us a far better grasp of Timothies age through the scriptures.

Forgiveness Is A Daily Opportunity

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 25/5/2022

Most often when we think of forgiveness, we tend to think of ourselves and what we need to improve, but this is not the best way to go. Once we are forgiven and walking in the spirit, the greater gains will come from, forgiving others and building better relationships. Once freed from sin, we should have far much more energy to direct towards the weak and unsaved... this is our daily opportunity.

Death And Hell

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 22/5/2022

Is the finality of judgement about punishing or eternal punishment..... One of the common mistakes made when trying to interpret the bible comes from overlooking the most basic rule of study... comparing the scriptures with themselves. The concept of eternal punishing is strangely missing from every prominent Old Testament reference. It is very hard to imagine why God would not warn Adam and Eve and numerous other key players in their times right up to Christ, that death would include eternal torment filled with unrelenting pain and horror for all of time... with no relief whatsoever. There is a huge difference between death (which is often quick and uneventful) compared with eternal torturous pain. Why would God hide, or disguise such a hideous result for thousands of years, if such a terrible punishment were literally true.

God Has You Covered

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 4/5/2022

God has prepared a gospel for the weakest of the weak, right through to the strongest of the strong. God cares for us much more than we can imagine. When we are weak we can become strong, because that is when we hand over to God and let him do the work that we cannot. God can cover our sins as easy as Adam and Eve covered themselves with fig leaves. God went one better and covered them more permanently with animal skins. By forgiving us our sins, God gives us room and time to grow and learn from mistakes and weaknesses... to develop spiritually. However, a working faith is required... to believe God by acting upon his directions (to obtain salvation and live in it).

Free From Debt

By Luke Holmes [Brisbane] on the 1/5/2022

Since Adams first act of disobedience, man has struggled with sin and the separation from God that it caused. Under the law, we owed a debt to sin paid only through blood. Jesus paid that blood price for us, freeing us to approach the father unimpeded. We are a new creation, a brand new man. We live a new life no longer burdened by the weight of sin, placing our burdens at the saviour's feet.

The Gift Of God

By Pastor Arthur Marshman [Brisbane] on the 1/5/2022

God has a single gift for all mankind, and he sent his son to earth to deliver it to us. This Gift is the Holy Spirit, receiving it is an experience that is variously described as; a baptism, an outpouring, an infilling, or being born of the Spirit. On receiving this gift, we open it to find signs and wonders following: speaking in tongues, healing, miracles, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, faith, discernment, and prophecy. As we walk with the Spirit of God, our lives become full of the fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. If you would like to receive this gift, read these bible references.

To Walk With Christ

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 10/4/2022

What does it mean to walk with Jesus Christ (to walk in the Spirit)? To walk with Jesus is the most important thing that anyone can possibly do... this is where the Lord will take you... to walk with the word... to walk with God... to walk with the Holy Spirit... to walk in a path that you have never been down before... to walk in power and wonderment...

God's Culture

By Pastor Brad Smith [Gold Coast] on the 3/4/2022

Please note that the PDF notes for this talk were uploaded as "The Culture Wars". Culture can be defined as all the ways of life including arts, beliefs and institutions of a population, that are passed down from generation to generation... these cultures are adjusted and changed as needed. God's culture is built on spiritual principles and powers which are revealed once we are filled with the Holy Spirit. This requires us to move away from natural thinking and exercise spiritual principles. This will vary according to the culture we live under.

The Power Of Knowledge

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 29/3/2022

To know God is to know the power of God. To understand God is to understand how to use his power. The only way we come face to face with God, is by receiving the anointing power Of the Holy Spirit. Once we meet God... we need to learn what he wants from us and how to use the power that we have received. This is achieved through various facets of learning. Reading, instruction, revelation and commitment all play a vital role in the learning process. As we progress, our knowledge needs to be turned into effective action and service.

Turning Weakness To Greatness

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 14/2/2022

God has always been able to turn weak people into great people, and failed people into overcomers. He also made a great nation out of weak people, who he made great.

The Events Of The Lord's Return

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 10/2/2022

A simple bible study of the revealed order of details surrounding the return of the Lord. See also the talk "In Our Lifetime" delivered on 4th February 2022.

In Our Lifetime

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 4/2/2022

There is one thing common to all of us on the planet... we are born and we die. This is inescapable. However, there is something else that is totally overlooked by the great majority... all will have to answer to God (who is their creator), for the things they have done with their lives.

When Truth Doesn't Matter Pt2

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 19/12/2021

Part 2 of When Truth Doesn't Matter. The world has very quickly moved to the point where the truth is not the driving force behind most decisions. Tribal loyalty and desired opinions are more important than facts, because people prefer their own reality and build upon their own 'truths'. Throughout the western world, reality and provable science have given way to the 'science' of personal beliefs. This 'science' is also selectively applied... eg., I might choose to believe that I am female, even though I am genetically, physically and visibly male, yet governing bodies will pressure everyone to agree with my choice. However, it I identify as fully vaccinated without evidence, I risk being rejected and isolated from society. These corruptions are prophesied, because they lead to the denial and corruption of everything that relates to God's creation, purposes and values. A clear pattern emerges... Humanities main goal is more about appeasing very fragile and deluded egos, than it is about improving or sustaining human life.

Led By The Spirit Pt2

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 8/12/2021

The sequel of two earlier talks by Pastor Brad Smith, Led Of The Spirit 211121, and, Washing Of Feet 211123. Being led of the spirit is not just knowing what is right or wrong, it is practicing what is right. To serve God (to be led by the spirit) is to serve others .

Washing Feet

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 23/11/2021

The same notes as used for Led By The Spirit..The Holy Spirit is the energy or power of God in action, just as our deeds (as opposed to our thoughts assets) display our nature to those around us. For those who are anointed/filled with the Spirit, it's God's intention that we utilize the same power for the salvation of others, so God's purposes can be established in us. Thus, we become the children of God, because our spiritual DNA is the same as God's... we are his offspring rather than the world's and we are motivated to act accordingly.
