Fake Faith – Let’s Get Real – Dave Gilpin

The slipstream of faith is a deadly place. You can tuck in under someone else’s breakthroughs and have a measure of success and yet be unaware that somehow you’ve run out of your own faith. You can be full of hope that God will come through for you, yet He doesn’t because you’ve mistaken hope for faith. You’re faith is fake faith. When God gives you real faith it’s always original- it can’t be borrowed, imparted, on loan or leased. It’s instantly yours. And it’s this kind of faith that not only saves, it’s the key to all of the breakthroughs you’re about to have in the future of your life. Listen well.

Trust Issues – Dave Gilpin

All of us have trust issues. Failure to address them always leads to cynicism, isolation and a small life. This message begins with describing an overcoming spirit that’s available to us through Christ, then encourages us to step out of our distrust back into trust, through a new spirit of courage. This simple step of courage will create a big step towards the amazing future God has planned for you.

Don’t Teach a Fish to Climb Trees – How to not lose your confidence – Dave Gilpin

50% of all of your weaknesses don’t exist. They’re fictional. We’ve mistaken non-strengths for weaknesses. Strengthen your non-strengths and the best you’ll get is average. Strengthen your strengths and you’ll find your genius. The other 50% are reversible. God places His strengths on the fault lines of your weaknesses. This message will set you free from your three greatest enemies- condemnation, accusation and perfection.

Fabulous Faith – Dave Gilpin

You don’t need breakthrough. You don’t need finance. You don’t need healing. What you need is the key that opens the door to breakthrough. Faith is that solitary key. There is no other key.  It has no feels. It has no emotion. It sees nothing in the natural. Yet it precedes everything. When you get it, it opens doors to things you’ve never experienced ever before in your life. This is about how to get it, how to use it and how to prize it.

Up Close and Personal – Dave Gilpin

Hope City Church is a multi-generational, multi-site and multi-national church full of creativity, diversity and authenticity. And that’s a challenge. Senior Pastor Dave Gilpin apologises to different groups within the church whom he feels have been let down across the years including middle-aged men, the black community and those who find themselves currently on the bench. It’s both honest and raw.

Cry Me a River – Dave Gilpin

Whether you call yourself an introvert, shy, quiet or just plain reserved, there’s a new you that supersedes the natural you times a thousand. The bible says that you’re not a lake, a pond, a swamp or a flood. You’re a river. Rivers flow. They’re dynamic. They’re hard to stop. They’re heading somewhere. And they represent everything about the new, higher You. Jesus declares that rivers of living water would flow from the inmost being of someone in whom the Spirit of God lives. Everything about this water is alive, dynamic, oozing to display its qualities and can’t be kept in a well. Click play to here this God-filled message from Senior Pastor, Dave Gilpin.

Cry Me A River Part Deux – Dave Gilpin

Psalm 46 states, ‘There is a river that makes glad the City of God.’ The river of God in your life is unstoppable. It will never run out and will transport you into all God has for you. But the river does something else-  it carries stuff away. You can’t just dump your junk on the river bank and expect to remain in the clear waters of destiny. Every river has a bridge and there comes a time where everything needs to become ‘water under the bridge’. In this message, Dave Gilpin gives us 7 keys to letting go and allowing our ‘junk’ to go under the bridge. It’s amazing what can happen when you do.

Mending Fences – Dave Gilpin

Fences are good- good for privacy, good for personal time and good for protection. To love someone is to love their fence.

 To love their fence is to allow them space- space to back away, space to hide, space to process and space to find their own convictions on life and faith. 

To push through the fence either causes offence that results in a stronger fence of defence, or for some, leads to broken fences and no fences.

The Voice Part 2 – Dave Gilpin

Express yourself.

Why did God ask Adam to name the animals? This would seem a pointless exercise until you remind yourself of the power of names. Names have an ability to fashion, form and frame both the present and the future. It’s happened throughout your lifetime with both positive and negative outcomes. Adam was practising on the animals what Jesus would do to the nature of Simon and the state of Lazarus- speak a new name over both creating powerful outcomes. And since we’re made in the image of God, we are called to rename ourselves, others and our cities with names of faith and hope that change things forever.

The Voice – Dave Gilpin

Calling your future out. 

Chaos marked the beginning of creation. Chaos always exists between what was and what is to come. To usher in what was to come, God spoke. He didn’t just think. He didn’t remain silent. The Word of God contains the power of God, yet the spoken word releases that power. Because the Word of God is ‘alive and active’, it’s born to be expressed. And when you express it, it never returns to heaven without accomplishing that for which it was sent.

Unboxing Possibility – Dave Gilpin

Right now you’re being unboxed. The box that held in your potential is being torn apart by unrest. To release your potential that releases all kinds of possibilities requires faith. And faith starts with a storm; a chaos and a sense of being out of control. Why? Because faith first let’s go of the old, the familiar, the usual and the worn. And that creates an uproar within us, in those who love us and in those who think they know us. To find oneself between the old and the new takes nerve. Here’s a life message to give you just that.

Chaos Theory – Dave Gilpin

Why does all hell seems to break loose soon after you get a word or a feeling that God is about to do a new thing in your world? It would appear to be the workings of an opposing force, yet the truth is that nothing natural or spiritual moves from one form of ‘order’ to a higher order without a season of chaos. 

We rarely understand this because we feel that God moves mostly through miraculous interventions, when he actually moves primarily through a process of birthing- and that’s so messy and awkward that we think something is intrinsically wrong. 

Nothing could be further from the truth. Chaos in your life right now isn’t for your destruction, it’s for your releasing- God is birthing something new and better in your world.

Blink – The Power of Thinking without Thinking – Dave Gilpin

Almost every time God speaks to us, it’s accompanied not by a booming voice or lightning flash but by a flicker- a change of cabin pressure- a momentary or residual peace that settles on the underside of our emotions. Because righteousness, peace and joy are the three arbitrators of the Spirit, Dave Gilpin shows how following the trail of peace can lead you into the fullness of all God has for you!

Inklings: The Five Levels of Desire – Dave Gilpin

You inner desires are completely linked to the will of God for your future. If you delight in Him, the Bible says, He will grant you the desires of your heart. Yet you’ll never truly be able to find them or follow them if you’re driven by demand, fear and conformity. Press play to find out how to dig through the emotional layers to find the true, life-guiding passions that dwell beneath.

Don’t Judge Me – Dave Gilpin

In Matthews Gospel, 8 out of around 14 parables that Jesus gave were directly to do with judgement. We never mention it for the fear of offending. However- In this age of judgementalism where isms and phobias are thrown around both as missiles of judgment and weapons of mass bullying, Jesus parables take on a new meaning.

In the Parable of the Weeds, the owner of the field told the workers to let the wheat grow with the weeds and for them to not to even attempt to do any weeding along the way. He would do that at harvest time. He would exercise final judgement, not the workers. Jesus is telling us to be counter cultural- to spend no time judging or being judgemental about others, ourselves, our society and our world. He is the only person wise enough to make the right calls and at the right time. And until He does, we are to live with eyes of faith, not the voice of accusation.

Like – Dave Gilpin

Unless someone likes you, they won’t get to know you. If they don’t get to know you they can’t trust you. If they don’t trust you they won’t love you. If they don’t love you they won’t be able to see what you love AND will be held back from loving what you love. Like it or not, influence begins with being liked. Jesus grew up ‘in favour with God and in favour with man’. To be liked is to be favoured. To win the favour of others is where great dreams begin. Sometimes people just won’t like you and don’t like you. Sometimes you need to make unlikeable choices. Sometimes those that liked you will unlike you because of them. Sometimes you need to lay down your life. But the rest of the time, which is most of the time, we’re build bridges of ‘Like’ over which the Ubers of grace and truth will one day zoom.

Boss Baby – Dave Gilpin

There comes a time you just have to put your foot down and move from Cry Baby to Boss Baby. You need to move from belittling your world to bossing up your world! How? Jesus gave a parable about two men at midnight- one wanted sleep, the other wanted food. Food won over sleep as the spirit of ‘shameless audacity’ took over. It’s this spirit that’s all over this message. And it’s yours for the taking.

Slow is the New Perfect – Dave Gilpin

The Kingdom of God is like SLOW TV- it’s like 7 hours 23 minutes of Salmon fishing in Norway on NETFLIX. Even the analogy Jesus gave of seeds being planted is all SLOW SLOW SLOW. And that’s the same for every one AND every church everywhere. We grow slow, church goes slow and we all go slow even when we think we’re all going fast.

Almost every bad leadership decision happens by ditching slow and trying to speed things up through raising people up far too early, raising completely the wrong people up, being too authoritative, giving stern ultimatums and creating a fear driven environment…. all understandable, yet completely devastating by sending the church backwards instead of leading it forwards.

WHY IS IT ALL SO SLOW? Because SLOW AND STEADY beats FAST AND ERATIC every time. SLOW AND THOUGHTFUL decisions are always better than TOO FAST AND EMOTIONAL decisions. SLOW AND PERMANENT change is better that QUICK THEN REVERSIBLE change.

BUILD SLOW PEOPLE THAT KEEP MOVING IN WINTER, NEVER STOP SOWING IN AUTUMN, NEVER PULL UP IN SUMMER AND NEVER CEASE TO GROW IN SPRING. For within them lies the secret of the Kingdom of God. The Tortoise beats the Hare every time.

If you’re continually thinking ‘why is God so late at coming through?’ think again. His timing is actually perfect. It’s just that He knows more than you. That’s all. YOU WANT THINGS FASTER? Love SLOW a little bit more.
