Christmas Preperations.

It’s that time of the year Again.

The lights, the tree, the cards and the rush to go mad from black friday to Christmas eve buying gifts for self, family and friends? Many of us run around like headless chickens this time of the year, excited for the holidays, without any consideration for the birth of the person we are celebrating?

Many people today don’t want anything to do with religion or Christianity and yet they will be the first to demand tradition? This has to be this way and that, because thats what they once had?

God apointed a time in human history for His son Jesus to enter to bring salvation and atonement to both His people Israel and redemption to the world! He has done this because He loves and he wants to see all people brought into fellowship with Him.

There is loves of many kinds, but His is unconditional, this does not mean that we can continue on in our sins? Because loving us does not mean He loves our failures!

Matthew 9:13,  Luke 2:14,  John 3:16.

Refugees. Two.

1845 to 2016.

Millions left Ireland, as they have many other lands to flee faminine and other economic disasters, but at the same time many have come to Ireland to find the hospitality of the Irish and feel let down?

We will always have refuugees of one kind or another, some will be dishonest while others true? This is the same for all humans, because of inherited sin, when we start to thinkl we are better than the rest then we have really misunderstood what God’s love, mery and forgiviness is all about?

Leviticus 25:35-38,  Psalm 37:25-26,  Proverbs 12:10,  Matthew 5;7,  Mark 11:25-26,  Luke 11:4,  John 5:42.

Remembering the Fallen!

The old story of human Failures?

We have always had war and always will, when politicians start to mark the past they are the ones laying the foundation for a new crises? It is hypocritical for nations to claim they have, are and will provide liberty and freedom, when even their past not so long ago was one of trading in slavery and the benifits of that trade?

Peace and peacemaking is a blessing from God, Jesus asks all believers in Him to be that role of ending arguments and even conflicts! This not for any recognition but what we know and have in God will be our reward?

Matthew 5:9,  Psalm 120:6,  Acts 7:26,  Luke 6:35.

International Terrorism.

Religious Mania.

The British will mark Guy Fawkes night tomorrow with fire works and bonfires, but how many people know who and what Guy Fawkes the centre of this tradition was all about?

Today everyone in Europe has to be politically correct and yet there remains the stigma towards, black people, travellers and the Jews?

The world faces a new religious fanatical deluded enemy lead by some very clever people, who one day perhaps might deck the halls of the United Nations at the cost of many innocent woman and children killed by their suicide soldiers in markets, schools and many other soft targets.

God will never allow evil to overcome good, that is why he sent His son Jesus to us so that we by trusting in Him could be forgiven. loved and set free from the blindness and wickedness of this dark world!

Lamentations 2:14,  Ezekiel 22:28,  Matthew 7:15,  Romans 12:21,  Philippians 3:18.
