Economic collapse & oil Glut?

The world is in a bad way!

But we should be praising God and giving thanks for these circumstances, which is providing many with staying in, family and loved one? It is of course not easy for everyone, noisy neighbours irritating family, depression and many other issues of small spaces?

But if we claim a faith in Jesus we have been set free to worship, to sing, give thanks, pray and study the Bible along with many other things in relation to sharing our faith perhaps more in actions than in words!

Romans 12:12,  15,  Ephesians 1:6,  12,  14,  Philippians 1:18,  4:4,  Hebrews 2:12,  13:15,   James 5:13,   1 Peter 1:6.

Working on the front Line!

Not always the right place, even at the best of Times?

Someone has to run the country and thousands of people are still doing this from the military, police, power station workers, post to nurses and Doctors!

We cannot without these essential men and woman, one can add transport to that list and scientists who are trying to find a vaccine for this mysterious virus!

God is always in the picture of His own creation, despite its fallen state! Easter was about love being applied through Jesus and many will have now joined the numbers in the Ekklesia! Welcome!

As new believers we have trust God will get us through this and His resurrection power brings to us the eternal Hope of better day on this side and in Eternity!

Ruth 2:13,  1 Chronicles 29:15,   Job 5:16,  Psalm 43:5,   Acts 24:15,   2 Corinthians 1:7, Galatians 5:5.

God so Loved…! One.

EASTER is On?

Despite the terrible way the world is in at the moment, with the emphasis taken off Islamic battles and sectarian killings, humanity has poisoned itself once more in a pandemic disease situation!

But apart from the need to self-isolate and to keep the quarantine in place, we must thank God for technology and the Internet that is keeping us seeing each other over the thousands of miles?

Easter is on, because we can share, sing and praise God through various platforms such as Skype and You Tube! We can hear the word and share our lives with loved ones and make this Easter intimate and special and try to reflect of what was achieved for us by Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead?

Nehemiah 1:11,  Psalm 55:1,   86:1,   Jeremiah 36:7,   Mark 11:24,  John 3:3,   7-9,   14-17,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:21-31,   James 5:16.

LOVE?

Agape and Eros!

The world thinks it has plenty of love today, everyone is loving each other and yet there is murder, stabbings and terrorism as never seen before, without real reasons rather than being indiscriminate?

The world loves the sinful side of love that clashes with the true love of God, because the world refuses to obey, but would rather go its own way?

We have something that is truly amazing and yet we fail much of the time to share it even in fellowship, let alone with the world around us!

Psalm 103:8,   John 3:16-17,  1 Corinthians 13:4,  1 John 1:9-10,   Jude 1:21.

Crimes out of Control?

The ages of Anarchy!

It would seem now that no matter where we live the world is going mad in crime and the forces that we pay for to protect are either being cut back or corrupt in not helping the poor?

We have opened this New Year with more madness, kinappings, egoistical leadership, war mongering, famine, vengance, knife and gun crimes on the increase!

One has to look at our televisions to see that we are seriously being influenced in soaps to live in bad ways and this is just acceptable? But if we are people of faith we must be apart from the ways of the world and this by the love of Jesus!

John 5:23-24,   Galatians 5:8,    Hebrews 4:12,   1 Peter 1:14,   2 Peter 1:4.

 

 

Doing good & Speaking the Truth?

The cost of faith in Jesus!

Sadly we are living in an age where it is getting harder to be a believer in Jesus, we may claim much but when it comes to doing what is right and speaking the world will do its best to shut us out?

But despite the fear and threats of people, we who have to truth have to point it out to this lost world! Even though it mite cost us loosing our jobs, being excluded or being killed as so many continue to be world-wide?

Psalm 37:4,  141:8,   Jeremiah 29:11, 13,   Matthew 7:7,   Acts 6:5-7:59,   Romans 2:7, Galatians 6:9,   Revelation 3:20.

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.

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.
