Horizon Series: If You’ve Seen the Lightning, You Can Believe For the Rain

Lead Pastor Colin Blois brings the final instalment in the Horizons Series, with a faith-inspiring word based out of 1 Kings. Though we may see a drought and hear of a famine, we expect food and rain because we have seen the providence of God! Others may doubt the coming of the waters, but because we have seen the lightning, we can believe for the rain.

The King is in the Cup

Lead Pastor Colin Blois brings an incredible message on First Fruits Sunday. It’s easy to think that the King is in the castle, that things are simply as they appear to be. Pastor Colin unpacks 1 Samuel 16, where as Samuel pours oil upon David he is filled with the Holy Spirit. The power is not in the position, but in the anointing. The King is not in the placement, the King is in the anointing; the King is in the cup.

The Gate Awaits

There are 10 gates between Heaven and Earth symbolised by Nehemiah repairing the 10 gates of Jerusalem. The principal gate is the Sheep Gate- the Gate of Redemption. If we can clear all 10 gates we’ll find a rush of heaven’s power that will move us faster and further into His plans and purposes than ever before.

You Smell So Good

Paul says that we are the aroma of Christ to God. In other words when the fragrance of your life rises into the nostrils of your heavenly Father, He smells Jesus. Or to put it more simply, you smell like Jesus. In fact when God smells your life you make Him think and feel as He does about Jesus. Why? Because you remind the Father of Jesus. You smell so good!

A Faith God Shouts About

Lead Pastor Colin Blois continues the open house series, with an inspiring message on Faith. We can feel like we should have enough faith to get rid of the storms, but God lets the storm rage around us because he knows the faith will stir and stand within us. We encounter storms because we have a faith God wants to shout about.

You Shall Not Pass – Rachael Taylor

This is not just a message – the is the declaration of a new era in the life of Hope City Church in the North East. We so often underestimate the authority we have in Christ, but in this message, Pastor Rachael reminds us of who we are, what we have, and the boldness with which we can declare the future we want to see.

The Scarlet Cord

In all of our lives from the moment we were born, there’s been The Scarlet Cord of God’s faithfulness running alongside us, swooping into our future. It’s been there in the euphoric times knowing that you’d need a companion when the music fades, and it’s been there in troubled times knowing that you’ll need someone to turn your test into a testimony of God’s grace and power. It’s even there when we’re unfaithful, because God always remains faithful.
