Crises. Part-Two.

Seeking Peace.

There remains to this day many people around the world, near and far who are not content with peace. They want to stir up old wounds for their own prestige, they dress it up as being righteous, seeking justice or we want.

Some times they will get a bit of what they want or want to achieve, so that people will praise them up. Strife is always a costly affair, because violence breeds more with hatred and factionism.

This is not Gods way, He wants peace and people to give up things for it to be achieved. Some ‘Christians are great players on theology and politics to suit their own selfish agendas. But it is only God who knows what truth is in our hearts.

1 Corinthians 14:33,  Hebrews 4:12,  James 3:16.

Crises. Part-One.

Crises and Uprisings.

We live in a world that is always changing, wither it is weather, storms or revoloution and wars. We will be suprised in our lives by new crises far and near. Europe in changing, it has been a very long time since we have seen a huge war.

At one time there were dozens of conflicts occuring across Europe and the Empires of Europe, men were callled to go here, there and everywhere to fight from all nations.

Eastern-Europe has changed and this process will continue, but beware, do not get into the comfort-zone of thinking is will not happen in the western parts.

This is our time to seek the Lord, to be in our hearts and to be secure in knowing he will forgive us and help us to have a new future.

Joshua 10:25,  Psalm 17:4,  Luke 12:17-18,   Acts 13,  26:18,  Hebrews 13:6.

Love. Part-Two.

Application.

Today is Saint Valentines day, many will be celebrating it in the traditional sense with the special meal, red roses and the long awaited card. But in light of the recent storms and bad weather that has hit Canada and the U.S., Ireland and Britain many people will not be getting out tonight or even this weekend.

Many are either snowed in or flooded and this is a good time to share the love we have by making a hot drink, being a shoulder to cry on and providing some free accommodation. That is putting into practice what it is to be a ‘Christian.

To be a real believer in Jesus and to share His love in us, also allows us not to expect anything in return not even a thank you.

Matthew 5:40-48.

Love. Part-One.

Universal.

There are many kinds of love in the world, but here we want to deal with the Love that God wants for us and for us to have for each other. God sets the rules about love, He sets the rules about marriage and divorce.

Many people today love each other man to man and woman to woman and they have committed their love for each other in Church ceremonies. The world and some mislead ‘Christians recognize this. But God does not, because it is abhorrent for Him to see this form of sexual act committed. If we confess to be believers in the bible and the death and resurrection of Jesus, then we are born-again of the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

We know that we have to live the way that God wants us to, not what we want. Some claim that God is allowing certain things in this realm, if so then the thief and swindler can remain as they are and still have faith in Jesus. This is not so, this is lies and deception, perpetrated by evil.

Leviticus 18:22,  19:5,  20:13,  Judges 19:22,  Matthew 11:23-24,  Romans 1:26-27,  Jude 1:7.
