The Failure Of The Priesthood Fresno

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 29/10/2020

This talk is part 2 of a series, part 1 being titled Chasing The Wrong Dream (18th October 2020). It is suggested that you listen to that talk first. This talk was delivered to the Fresno Fellowship on 29th October 2020. It is further noted that Pastor Brad also delivered this talk to the Brisbane Fellowship on 1st November 2020. There are slight differences in the talks. Jesus worked miracles amongst the needy and the sick, fed the hungry and offered salvation to the sinners and the lost. How did those who were supposed to serve the same people react? The priests had him tortured and murdered on false charges, not caring one bit for the pain and suffering He was solving. The priesthood was corrupt and spiritually sick: that is why God brought it to an end and a new way was born.

Chasing The Wrong Dream

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 18/10/2020

The whole world is losing its way very quickly. The people of the nations are struggling to find significance in their beliefs, their values and their reason for existing. The continuous undermining of God given ethics and human respect, is now turning everything on its head.


By Pastor Arthur Marshman [Brisbane] on the 11/10/2020

Noahs Ark, A story that is still relevant today. The Bible says the last days will be like Noahs. Consequently, like Noah, we must live a righteous life and follow God's instructions if we wish to be saved.


By Chris Tankey [Brisbane] on the 11/10/2020

The book of Malachi represents the last word of God to the nation of Israel for about 400 years.

The Basics Of Speaking In Tongues

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 4/10/2020

The first thing that we need to observe is that God chose tongues as a sign and also designed their spiritual usage. God has given us plenty of details and directions, to work out everything we need to know about tongues. Good doctrine needs to be established by the sound use of scripture... not by feelings or personal beliefs.

God Will Never Give More Than You Can Handle

Values - Don't Lose Focus

By Phillip Sunderland [Brisbane] on the 27/9/2020

Each of us lives our lives according to our values. It can be that the way we behave is not in accordance with the values we think we have. God is specific about what our values should be as born again Christians. It starts with our love of God and our love for our neighbour.

Anxiety And Fear. We Need To Trust

By Byron Carragher [Brisbane] on the 20/9/2020

Anxiety - We Need to trust; We do not need to fear. Whilst the Bible does not use the word anxiety, it does have a lot to say about fear. Generally this sits in one of two categories, a reverential fear (respect) (by analogy to be in awe of), or alarm or fright (terror). This talk covers some references of types of fear or anxiety that we may feel, discusses patience as the process to remove anxiety (or fear), cross references scriptures that tell us not to do things in our own strength and works, through a couple of psalms of David to help paint mental picture that God has all things in hand. He is our refuge and we have nothing to fear.

When Proof Isn't Enough

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 20/9/2020

Sadly, most people don't care about evidence; all they want is someone to agree with their world view. Believing in God is not the same as obeying God... sticking to beliefs that are doctrinally weak, or denying scriptural signs, will fail those seeking eternal life. God has always offered scriptural support and backed it up with evidence. The choices we make in faith, determine the opportunities God can work with.

Turning Failure Into Great Comfort

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 6/9/2020

The Bible is full of faithful people who despite moments of weakness and failure, were able to provide great blessings for God's people. Some have provided far more blessing than they thought possible, perhaps even more than we yet realise. The gained comforts from the following acts of faith are far greater than even they could have imagined. All these blessings have come out of tribulation, despair or weakness. Consider it a great joy to fall into tribulation, because all the great blessings have come out of such trials..

When We Hit The Wall

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 23/8/2020

Many marathon runners face a difficult problem in the latter stages of the race... that is when they hit the wall. This refers to depleting their glycogen (glucose, stored in the liver and muscles)and the feelings of fatigue and negativity that come with it. It is the most readily available fuel source to burn when exercising, so our bodies prefer it. When we run low on glycogen, our muscles hurt and our brain wants to shut down activity as a preservation method... this may lead to negative thinking, forgetting the big picture. Most people come to the Lord for the same reason... the easy answers stop coming. Also it is not uncommon for people who serve God to hit the wall from time to time. God excels when the easy way is not available.

The Age Of Offence

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 9/8/2020

People responding poorly to facts that they do not want to hear is a rapidly escalating problem... both in this world and sadly within God's church. There is a certain reality about unwelcome words... The truths revealed in God's word trigger the way we think and act. Scriptural truths can be seen pleasantly or offensively, then choices are made by each individual.

God's Healing Is Complete Pt2

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 5/8/2020

The Bible concept of healing is far more than physical and mental restoration. There are numerous encompassing scriptures that reveal just how big the offered blessings are. Our primary problem is that man is mortal, and God is immortal. Through Jesus Christ, God has provided unlimited and far-reaching healing opportunities for the human race.

The Trojan Horse

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 26/7/2020

We find a story in Greek mythology of how the impenetrable city of Troy was defeated by a much smaller and weaker Trojan army. Troy had huge walls around the city that couldn't be breached, so a clever plan of getting into the city was devised. A multi story wooden horse was built and rolled to the front gates of Troy as a gift to Troy's superiority. The wooden monument had soldiers hidden inside and once accepted into the city. Under the cover of darkness the hidden soldiers opened the city gates and Troy was defeated. Thus, malware (computer viruses) are often called "trojans" for the same reason. They are disguised as legitimate software and can be used by cyber thieves and hackers to gain access to your computer, your data and your assets. Likewise, Christians should be fully aware that this type of attack against their faith is the most common ploy that Satan uses against them.... once our faith is weakened, unbelief and failure can soon follow.

Baptism Of The Spirit

By Pastor Arthur Marshman [Brisbane] on the 19/7/2020

Arthur defines the reason for, and the method of, receiving the Holy Spirit.

The Prodigal Son

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 12/7/2020

The parable of the prodigal son came about because of the criticisms of the Pharisees and the Scribes who rebuked Jesus for always being in the company of sinners. The Pharisees believed that God wanted the church to keep away from its defaulters. Furthermore, they added many extra burdens on those who wanted to be restored and who wanted to serve God. Jesus responded with these 3 parables.

The Humility Imperative

By Phillip Sunderland [Brisbane] on the 6/7/2020

Humility, from the spiritual perspective. What it is. Why it is important. What it is not. How do you get it.

The Healing Of Sarah

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 28/6/2020

Sarah was Abrahams wife and was born on a timeline halfway between Adam and Jesus Christ. She had been incapable of having children and was 90 years old when God healed her. She still had to wait another 25 years after being specifically told she would be healed. To make matters more challenging, not only was she barren, but she had entered menopause... two major impossibilities at a natural level. Like all of us, she had to address the needs of the here and now, but at the same time was facing two seemingly impossible promises. This is how her story unfolds and how her ongoing faith gave them one of the most amazing testimonies in history.

Why Do The Heathen Rage

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane] on the 14/6/2020

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.
