The Philippines?

Islands of disasters and Troubles!

The history of this island archipelago is that of sadness from conflicts to natural disasters, from dictatorships to epidemics and President Duterte?

The people are perhaps some of the most resilient on the planet or so it would seem, but one is sure that the pains of loss never really go away and suffering probably continues in silence?

The islands are plighted with on going terrorism in the southern islands of Mindanao and Jolo and the threat to Manilla is always there despite U.S. troops being in the country! The war on the drug cartels continue, despite some injustices but before Mr. Duterte came to office the situation was way out of hand and effected nearly every family?

Religious faith in great in this nation, it keeps many going! But to know the Lord as your personal Saviour is even more important to encourage believers to push and press on with education and science to improve their nation with innovation?

Meanwhile the Philippines needs our prayers also, especially when it is out of the media headlines!

Deuteronomy 1:38,   1 Samuel 23:16,   Psalm 119:28,   Isaiah 40:1,  Romans 1:12,   15:4,  Colossians 2:2,   1 Thessalonians 5:11,   1 Timothy 5:1,   Hebrews 3:13,   2 Peter 3:1.

Life on Mars! 1970.

Professor Levine claims Discovered?

Nasa is well known by now for not telling the world the truth about Space, the planets in our Solar System and what they have really found or are in contact with?

Most of their work is to with the business of spying, sending up probes to watch, Russia, Iran and China, while robotic probes are being sent to evaluate mineral contents on Mars and across the system?

Pluto was something of a shock to NASA, what was there was not expected and one wonders what we have not seen with the last mission to Ultima Thule and now its long sleep for another target?

Microbial life has survived in the clay deposits of this decaying world and they probably are the same as the ones found on Earth! The famous fossal worm was the big headline, before it was discounted!

Genesis 1:25-26,  Leviticus 11:41,  Deuteronomy 4:18,  Luke 21:25,   Revelation 6:13,  8:12.

Having Attitude?

The driving forces!

It all depends on what our attitude is to certain situations and this will also reveal the condition of our hearts and motives?

Human idealism and dogmatic stances will lead to legalistic ideas that will block progress and insight fear or drive a position of refusing to understand the needs of others!

It might seem right, when it is not and many Christians have been ensnared in these attitudes for generations turning what they had from religious freedom into death and having no ability to fully comprehend the truths of Jesus and the Holy Bible?

Numbers 14:24,   Philippians 2:5,   4:5,   Titus 3:2.

BREXIT!

Selling out Peace in Ireland?

The English do not care about what happens in far away Ireland the land of the ‘Little people, who they can walk over when they take the whim?

The Peace process will now be lost to new groups who want to return to violence as with the killing of the journalist McKee! PM Boris Johnson has no time for none-whites or the Irish, the deaths of another 3000 people are worth his pipe dream?

Christian values, where have they gone in all this while the British media tell their own people lies a large bomb in the city of London will be too late to the fate of these islands once more?

Leviticus 26:6,   Deuteronomy 28:65,   Psalm 120:6-7,   Matthew 5:9,   Luke 1:79,   Romans 12:18,   1 Peter 3:11.

Republic of South-Africa!

Hatred of foreigners and open Racism?

This is not what people around the world expected to ever hear, but it is the reality of the human heart that racism is a world-wide condition!

People get jealous when others make more money and can live better than the locals, some feel that they have been out done by the various incoming communities? But sometimes this is the cover for their failings of being lazy or over charging and they just don’t see why they should be undercut!

The business world is a hard place of competition and yet it is a wonderful place of offering variety and difference to people who have not seen, tasted or known new things?

Prayers are essential now that people are getting killed on the richest and most diverse International nation in Africa! Facing the facts of how we have failed is another and seeking that others will call on Jesus is a most vital line to follow that they be saved!

Genesis 37:11,  Psalm 55:1,   Proverbs 10:18,   26:26,   Matthew 20:15,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   Galatians 5:26,   Philippians 1:15,   Hebrews 12:3.

PRIDE!

Nationalism, politics and Sexuality?

We have to write from the context of the Bible in relation to this matter of human failure and a misunderstanding of what Pride is and what it means is not good!

God has no time for pride or the proud, because it is a self-imposed block to faith! We see it at work everyday in our world, people stubborn, disobedient and restless to oppose God and man in not giving up their traditions, marching and walking forcing their religious beliefs on others with threats of death?

Trying to prove to others that they have to accept their new ways or their political views of segregation and many other twisted ideals!

But God has offered to us in love His one and only Son Jesus, all who repent and place their faith in Him will be saved from the twisted ideals of humanity and their past failures!

Leviticus 26:19,   Job 35:12,   Proverbs 8:13,   13:10,   Mark 7:22,   Romans 12:9,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   2 Corinthians 5:14,   Hebrews 13:5,   James 1:12,  1 John 1:3.

Arrogance?

Those in Power!

Governments practice arrogance most of the time they like to make big promises or abuse peoples trust, and use disasters to prop up their re-election campaign or media publicity?

They believe that they can pull it off and they do for a time, but then all that hype and famous stuff about them starts to slip away as people seek that they are the real, ‘Fake News of their own making!

God does not like pride and arrogance, but especially those who profess a faith in Him! These folks will be taken down, if they refuse to humble themselves and to be seen doing it before the world, nation and God?

Psalm 131:1,   Proverbs 13:16,   Isaiah 2:17,   Matthew 23:12,   Luke 14:11,   1 Peter 5:5.
